Classic 1973 Billy Graham Sermon On The Future Of Our Country

This classic Billy Graham sermon on the future of our country may be from 1973, but watching it today could still teach us a lot.


As uncertainty becomes the new normal, many people are finding comfort in the familiar. One such place is the Bible and the classic 1973 sermon given by Billy Graham about the future of our country. It has been one of the most-watched sermons with more than 3.7 million views. Christians and non-Christians alike are flocking to the internet to search for answers as to what is going on in the world.

Covid, homeschool, lack of jobs, wearing masks, mass riots, and reading the daily death toll in the news has become our new normal. Some start to wonder if God is still in charge or if He even cares. They question what God is doing when there seems to be so much suffering, chaos, and evil in the world.

Yet in his sermon, Billy reminded us otherwise. He reminds us when we begin to worry and question what is happening around us, we are to read the book of Daniel with the book of Revelation along with the morning newspaper. Why, because it all ties together. Because God is still in control and God has a plan. Billy reminds us to remain calm and bring our own sins before God in order to repent and turn our hearts toward the one who is mighty to save.

At the time of this teaching, it was in 1973 and the St. Louis arena was sold out every night. In fact, the arena at that time was larger than Madison Square Garden in New York City with a capacity of holding almost 21,000 people. And yet, the arena was sold out every night because of hungry souls seeking to know the Lord and what was happening in our world.

Billy’s message still rings true today as it did back then, God is in control. He’s still on the throne. And those of us who know Him, put our trust in Him and Him alone. When all the rest of it falls and crumbles, he will be there.

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.” Isaiah 26:3-4
