Read the transcript of Billy Graham’s sermon titled “Is the Handwriting on the Wall, America?” which was preached in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1973.
Listen to the MP3 Audio here:
Billy Graham – Evangelist
Going to ask that we bow our heads in prayer. Many of you have come from a long distance to be here. To many of you, this is your first time in the arena this week.
And you’ve heard and read in the press all the great and wonderful things that have been happening here. And a friend asks you to come and you’ve come. Or maybe you made your plans months ago to be here at this particular service.
Or God knows all about you. He knows your heart. He knows your intents and your thoughts and your mind. And He can meet your need, whoever you are. And whatever you need.
You need sin forgiven… He gave His Son to die on the cross for that purpose.
Problem solved. He said, “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
You that are tired and weary and sick, He’ll meet your need.
Our Father, we pray today that the people that have come here with great spiritual and moral needs may find the answer in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we ask it in His name. Amen.
To you that are watching by television, we’re in the St. Louis arena, as you know, in St. Louis, Missouri. And this arena has been filled to capacity every single service. And many of the services we’ve started 15 minutes and even today a half an hour early because the arena is already filled that far in advance.
