Graham, whose worldwide crusades and role as adviser to decades of U.S. presidents made him one of the best known religious figures of his time, preached to 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories, with "hundreds of millions more" viewing him on television, video, film and webcasts, according to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website.
Vice President Mike Pence also took to Twitter to pay tribute to Graham, writing that he changed the lives of millions by spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
"We mourn his passing, but I know with absolute certainty that today he heard those words, 'Well done, good and faithful servant,'" Pence said. "Thank you, Billy Graham. God bless."
Billy Graham's ministry for the gospel of Jesus Christ and his matchless voice changed the lives of millions. We mourn his passing but I know with absolute certainty that today he heard those words, "well done good and faithful servant." Thank you Billy Graham. God bless you(2/2)

2 Timothy Chapter 4:7-8
I have fought a good fight, I have finished [my] course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.
May we follow his example. JESUS is coming soon!
Any statement from those devout Christians, Barry and Michelle?
Back in the 1980’s, I met the Rev. Billy Graham.
There was never an evangelist, nor man of God, before or since, that could earn my trust, other than the Rev. Graham.
He was, and shall always be, ‘The Real Deal’.
He shall be missed.
we might hear from Bill and Hillary soon.
I was there at Billy Graham’s LAST gospel crusade in Flushing Meadows, Corona Park. Bill and Hillary were prominently seated behind him as he preached. Graham was about 87 then (It was 2005).
It was then when he referred to the Clintons as wonderful friends, joking that the former president should consider becoming an evangelist and let his wife to run the country. (that did not go too well in certain parts of the country then ).
Yeah right they’re probably popping Champagne corks
These guys liked Graham but obama would be sad and have condolances for Jerimiah Wright.
Barry and Michael. Corrected it for you.
His like shall not pass this way again.
Yes, Jesus is coming soon. AMEN & AMEN
I’m sad at the passing of this wonderful man.....that’s the human side of me.....I am rejoicing that Brother Graham is in Heaven with his Lord and Savior at last.......that’s the spiritual side of me. RIP Brother Graham.........
I remember that and since the preferred to watch the ministry of Franklin Graham. I thought Billy had gone senile.
I saw Graham at a rally in Pontiac Michigan when I was about 12. http://silverdome-architect.blogspot.com/2016/02/billy-graham-1976-t-is-same-scene.html
When I was in college, I rented a room from an elderly lady who told me that she saw Billy Sunday, one of the first major league itinerant preachers speak.
Mr. Graham was a gentleman through and through. I shall not hold that against him. Evangelism is about meeting people where they are. Point a bony finger at a man and the conversation is over.
Weve lost the greatest evangelist of the 20th century. A must see film of this Christian man is Billy, The Early Years. Without doubt God will rest his soul.
Never met him, but I wish I had.
Billy Graham, pray for us.
Hopefully this news won’t get in the way of the activist media pushing their anti-American and Anti-Religious propaganda.
