Kort biografi
William Franklin Graham Jr. (November 7, 1918 – February 21, 2018) was an American evangelist, a prominent evangelical Christian figure, and an ordained Southern Baptist minister who became well-known internationally in the late 1940s. One of his biographers has placed him "among the most influential Christian leaders" of the 20th century.

As a preacher, he held large indoor and outdoor rallies with sermons that were broadcast on radio and television; some were still being re-broadcast into the 21st century. In his six decades on television, Graham hosted annual "Crusades", evangelistic campaigns that ran from 1947 until his retirement in 2005. He also hosted the radio show Hour of Decision from 1950 to 1954. He repudiated racial segregation and insisted on racial integration for his revivals and crusades, starting in 1953; he also invited Martin Luther King Jr. to preach jointly at a revival in New York City in 1957. In addition to his religious aims, he helped shape the worldview of a huge number of people who came from different backgrounds, leading them to find a relationship between the Bible and contemporary secular viewpoints. According to his website, Graham preached to live audiences of 210 million people in more than 185 countries and territories through various meetings, including BMS World Mission and Global Mission.

Graham was a spiritual adviser to U.S. presidents, and he provided spiritual counsel for every president from Harry S. Truman (33rd) to Barack Obama (44th).



"Dr. Graham affirms that: God's invisible hosts are better organized than any of the armies of man - or Satan. Angels "think, feel, will, and display emotions." They are "ministering servants" who can appear or remain invisible as they perform the tasks that God assigns them. Angels aren't all "sweetness and light" - they are also God's agents of judgement on the disobedient. Angels guide, comfort, and provide for the people of God in the midst of suffering and persecution. At death, the faithful will be ushered by angels into the presence of God."

My parents requested this when they knew my father's long fight for life after a massive stroke was drawing to an end.

FROM AMAZON: Yes, angels are real. They are not the product of your imagination.

“If we had open spiritual eyes we would see not only a world filled with evil spirits and powers—but also powerful angels with drawn swords, set for our defense.” (Billy Graham)

God's invisible hosts are better organized than any of the armies of man—or Satan.
Angels "think, feel, will, and display emotions".
Angels guide, comfort, and provide for people in the midst of suffering and persecution.
At death, the faithful will be ushered by angels into the presence of God.
The world continues to be fascinated with angels...but what does the Bible say about these beings? Billy Graham's book is the definitive resource.
