Narrow Is The Road: Billy Graham (Transcript)

Here is the full transcript of Billy Graham’s sermon titled “Narrow Is The Road.”

Listen to the audio version here:


Tonight I want you to turn with me to the 16th chapter of Matthew’s Gospel. The 16th chapter of Matthew’s Gospel, verse 1. And I want to talk tonight on Jonah and the whale. But I want to start from the 16th of Matthew, rather than the Old Testament, where the story of Jonah is told.

The Pharisees, also with the Sadducees, came and, tempting, desired him that he would show them a sign from heaven. They wanted to see something spectacular, some sign that would prove to them who he was. He answered and said unto them, “When it is evening, you say it will be fair weather for the sky is red. And in the morning it will be foul weather today for the sky is red and lowering.”

Discerning the Signs

“Oh, you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” We need to hear that today. We can discern the meteorological signs. We see on our television sets the prediction of the weather, the lows and the highs and the fronts that are moving through.

And we can pretty well predict the weather through the satellite pictures that we’re now able to take. And there are many signs in the skies. There are satellites that are circling this earth constantly, something we never dreamed of 25 years ago. And now we have, we’re probing the outskirts of Saturn, already finished probing Mars and going on into outer space.

Signs of the Times

Signs in the sky. We can discern that. We can understand that. But Jesus said you cannot understand the signs of the times. Signs of the times that point toward salvation. Signs of the times that point toward when He comes back again. Because the signs are everywhere. You take the 24th chapter of Matthew and read it. Take the 21st chapter of Luke and read it. Take the 13th chapter of Mark and read it.
