Billy Graham: When a Believer Dies an ‘Angel Will Escort Them to Heaven’

Veronica Neffinger | Editor, ChristianHeadlines.com | Tuesday, August 30, 2016

The Rev. Billy Graham recently answered a reader’s question of whether angels escort believers to heaven after they die.

“When we die, does an angel accompany us into heaven? I’ve heard this all my life, but is it really true? How do we know?” the reader asked in the Answers section of the famous evangelist’s website.

“Yes, the Bible indicates that when a believer dies, the angels will escort them safely into heaven,” Graham began in his response, according to Charisma News.

Graham then provided an example from the Bible of an angel escorting a believer to heaven after death:

“In one of His parables, for example, Jesus told about two very different men. One was a rich man, who lived only for himself and ignored both God and others. The other was a poor beggar who had nothing as far as this world’s goods were concerned, but had faith in God and His promises. When the rich man died, he received what he deserved: a life of misery, separated from God forever. But when the poor man died, the angels accompanied him safely into God’s presence. (You can read this parable in Luke 16:19-31).”supernatual-money-dreams0_thumbnail.jpg

Graham ended by reminding the reader as he always does in his responses to readers’ questions that salvation comes only through Jesus.

“Never forget, however, that Christ alone is our Savior, and He alone is the one in whom we are to place our faith and trust. We should be grateful for God’s angels, but we are not to worship them or make them (instead of Christ) the center of our faith. Is Christ the center of your faith? Make sure of your commitment to Him. Then put your confidence in God’s promise: “For He will give His angels charge over you to guard you in all your ways” (Ps. 91:11).”

 

 

Christian Convert from Islam Releases Book Making Case for Christianity

Christian Convert from Islam Releases Book Making Case for Christianity

A Christian apologist who converted to Christianity from Islam recently released a new book in which he details the case for Christianity as well as the case against Islam.
The Christian Post reports that Nabeel Qureshi is the son of Pakistani immigrants. He grew up as a Muslim, but was challenged in his faith when a Christian roommate presented the Gospel to him and pointed out flaws in Islam.
“This friend, instead of just playing dead, like most Christians did, he actually tried to defend Christianity and show me the issues with Islam. It is real easy to do once you try, but no one else had,” Qureshi explained in an interview. “Because of that, I was ultimately opened to a lot of evidence I probably never would have considered.”
Qureshi now tours with Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias. He has already written one book which he says explains how his heart changed toward Christianity. That book is titled Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus.
His new book No God But One: Allah or Jesus? goes into more depth laying out the case for Christianity and also providing evidence against Islam.
“When it comes to Muhammad, there is this whole edifice built on the character of Muhammad — what he taught, what he was like, how he lived his life — and that is the foundation of Islam,” Qureshi said. “The way an average Muslim lives is all based on the hadiths, the traditions. Muhammad was supposedly born in Mecca and Islam supposedly sprung out of Medina in the seventh century. But the problem is … there is no reason to think that Muhammad is actually like what the hadiths say.”
Qureshi also addresses how many Muslim to Christian converts like himself are disowned by their families. He says that he is finally starting to rebuild a relationship with his own family.
Christians and Jews Join Together to Support Israel

Christians and Jews Join Together to Support Israel

A group of U.S. Christians are joining together in support for Israel and to combat a U.S. pro-Palestinian movement.

CharismaNews.com reports that the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) became the latest American church to join the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

To counter this movement, about 100 Christian leaders, along with Israeli Knesset members, are working together to support Israel.

“Israel’s safety and well-being are the responsibility of every Jew and every Christian who loves Israel in every place at every moment of life,” Joseph Sabag of the Israel Allies Foundation told those gathered for a meeting of the coalition.

Sabag is working to push legislation through in the U.S. which would fight against the BDS movement.

“In May of 2015, South Carolina became the first state in America to adopt modern legislation regulating against the problem of commercial discrimination and boycotts against Israel,” Sabag said.

Other states have followed South Carolina’s lead, but there is still work to be done.

Barry Shaw, author of BDS for Idiots, warned of the movement’s dangers:

“What is going on with BDS is a global name for all the Israel haters. (It’s) really the misinformation campaign that they’re feeding to the general public and the miseducation that’s happening at these campuses,” he said.

Knesset member Michael Oren said the only way to combat false information is with the truth, and that is what the coalition of Christians and Israelis is seeking to do.

Mel Gibson Says Next Project May be ‘The Passion of the Christ’ Sequel

Mel Gibson Says Next Project May be ‘The Passion of the Christ’ Sequel

In a surprise appearance, Mel Gibson told evangelist Greg Laurie at SoCal Harvest at Angel Stadium that he is working on a sequel to “The Passion of the Christ.”

“We’re talking about that. Of course, that is a huge undertaking,” Gibson said. “And you know, it’s not the ‘Passion 2.’ It’s called ‘The Resurrection.’ Of course, that’s a very big subject and it needs to be looked at because we don’t want to just do a simple rendering of it — you know, read what happened.”

Laurie asked Gibson about the possible sequel after screenwriter Randall Wallace told Hollywood Reporter that he and Gibson were working on a sequel to “The Passion of the Christ.”

“The Passion is the beginning and there’s a lot more story to tell,” Wallace told Hollywood Reporter.

Gibson told Laurie that Wallace is “up to the task” of writing the second film.

“He is also, as well as a brilliant writer, he is a great director. He directed ‘We Were Soldiers’ and ‘Heaven is for Real’ and stuff. So, he is a good writer and director.”

Laurie also talked to Gibson about his new movie, set to release in November, called “Hacksaw Ridge.” The movie, based on a true story, follows U.S. Army medic Desmond Doss during World War II.

“Desmond Doss received the Congressional Medal of Honor for courage under fire. He was singular in that most guys who get the Medal of Honor, they do something in a split second and it’s a decision that they do something courageous and heroic,” Gibson said. “Desmond did what he did over and over and over again in different places in the Pacific. His greatest achievement was in Okinawa, where he saved a lot of men.

“Another interesting thing about Desmond was that he was a conscientious objector and he went into battle without a weapon as a medic and what he did was supernatural and He only did it through faith. He was armed only with his faith.”

Matthew 22:11-13King James Version (KJV)

11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
