A Word From Ned Graham

Title: A Word From Ned Graham
Ned Graham
Ned Graham President of East Gates

Being the youngest of his four ...

Being the youngest of his four siblings by six years, Ned says that in some ways he was like an only child.

"Because my brothers and sisters were all older and my sisters got married at an early age, I got to spend more one-on-one time with my parents," he says.
"Growing up, my dad and I always had a very special bond.Dad always hugged me and told me he loved me no matter what.Even when I felt like a failure, he told me how proud he was of me."
Ned says one of his fondest memories of early childhood was going back to his father's bedroom, knocking on the door and peeking in to find him on the telephone with some important person, such as the president.
"He'd say, 'Just a moment, Lyndon,' put the phone on his chest, and then motion for me to come in," Ned recalls."To me, that said I was more important than the president of the United States!I'd crawl up on his bed, content just to lie there with my head on his chest."
"Ned will never admit it, but he's my mother's favorite child," insists Anne Graham Lotz, one of Ned's three sisters."Ned will never admit it, but he's my mother's favorite child," insists Anne Graham Lotz, one of Ned's three sisters.
He was the center of her life-after Daddy, of course-and I think it's God's blessing that Ned would be the one to come back and look after them."
Ned and Anne both say that when they were growing up there was no sibling rivalry among the five Graham children-Virginia "Gigi" Graham Tchividjian, 61, author and speaker; Anne Graham Lotz, 58, founder of AnGeL Ministries; Ruth "Bunny" Graham McIntyre, 56, author and speaker; William Franklin Graham III, 54, president and CEO of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse; and Ned, 49, president of East Gates International.

Like his brother, Franklin, Ned suffered through tumultuous teen years, displaying his rebellion through a love for fast cars, drinking and girls.But unlike Franklin, who abandoned his rebellion early, Ned struggled for 30 years with his before he came face to face with the issues that had contributed to it.
Darkness Invades
"When I was a little boy, I had a very pure, unadulterated relationship with God," Ned says."But when I was 11 and 12 years old, I experienced two childhood sexual-abuse traumas that opened the door for demonic affliction."
He suspected in his mid-20s that he was demonically afflicted, but he chose not to deal with it because he didn't know enough about it.He was also too ashamed to bring it to the attention of anyone in the evangelical community.
Ned says he doesn't believe he was demonically possessed from the trauma because Jesus still lived in his soul."There was a dissonance in my life between what I refer to as 'Big Ned,' who was demonically oppressed, and 'Little Ned,' who was still very spiritually sharp," he explains.
"When someone is demonically afflicted it doesn't mean they are spiritually incapacitated," he stresses.
After high school, Ned entered Judson College in Elgin, Illinois.He stayed there one year, and then took a year off to teach rock climbing and outdoor survival skills in western North Carolina.During a climb, he fell and suffered serious injuries.He was taken to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where he met his first wife.
"I was 20, and she was 26," Ned says."At the time I was very rebellious and into marijuana and alcohol, and I naively thought that I knew what love was and that it would take care of everything."
After recovering from his injuries, Ned attended the University of Minnesota as a pre-med student but later transferred to Pacific Lutheran University in Seattle, where he graduated in 1986 with a degree in communications.
After graduation, he entered Fuller Theological Seminary and earned a master's degree in theology.While studying at Fuller, he took a position as an intern of adult ministries at Bible Baptist Church.This led to a pastorate, where he served for six years before God called him in 1992 to establish East Gates International.
When his first wife filed for divorce in 1998 after 20 years of marriage, Ned says he pushed past the pain."I'm a rock climber and a mountaineer, and I'd always pushed past pain in my life through sheer strength and willpower."
Among those who were a support to Ned during his divorce was Christina "Tina" Kuo, who had joined the East Gates International staff a year before as director of training.
Back home, Ned says he would often take his two sons, Alex and Sam (then 13 and 10), and his dog, Pugsley, into the East Gates office with him."Sam and Pugsley would somehow always end up in Christina's office," he says.
In February 2001, Sam's request was fulfilled and Ned and Tina were married by his father in his parents' Montreat home.One year later, at his father's request, Ned and Tina returned to the North Carolina mountains to care for Ned's mother, who was hospitalized and said to be dying.
Having worked as a certified nursing assistant throughout his educational pursuits, Ned was well-qualified to assist in the physical care of his mother.What he wasn't prepared for was the spiritual warfare taking place on the mountain.
Although Ned dedicated himself to caring for his mom during the two years he was at Montreat, he says he was still struggling with his own physical and spiritual issues.
When Ned and Tina returned to Seattle in 2004, Ned's depression deepened."I came to a point where I gave up everything," he says."I stopped caring.I no longer feared death or life.I no longer feared failure or success.It was at that point that God could interact with me."
Although Ned knew nothing about deliverance, he agreed to see a well-known deliverance minister after a friend suggested it.The attempt to free him from his demonic affliction failed, Ned says, and caused even more damage to his psyche.
Tina says she didn't feel comfortable with the idea in the first place."And things got much worse afterwards," she says."When you stimulate the dark side in a person and don't resolve it, it worsens."
Anne recalls: "I was in Seattle around this time doing a Just Give Me Jesus conference.When I saw Ned, he was barely hanging in there.I thought he was having a complete inner breakdown, emotionally, spiritually and mentally.It was very scary."
Deliverance and Freedom
Through Tina's urging, Ned began meeting with inner-healing minister Rita Bennett, who led him through about 15 sessions of soul-healing prayer.
Ned says he let go of bitterness, anger and resentment, and allowed Jesus to bring healing.
Then one morning he knew the time had come for him to be fully delivered.He called two friends, who had been present during his healing sessions with Bennett, and arranged to meet them at a church.While traveling the freeway to meet the men, he had to pull over to vomit several times, almost wrecking his car.
"The deliverance was difficult because what afflicted me since childhood was extremely powerful and there was an apparent hierarchy [of demons]," he says.But several hours later, he says he was laughing and giggling and praising God."I was a totally different man," he confesses.
Ned says he was also immediately delivered from the addictions that had plagued him for years, as well as some long-term health problems.
At the time, Tina was on a trip to China, so Ned spent the next several weeks alone, reading God's Word and studying about the Holy Spirit and spiritual warfare.About the third week into his study, he says he was praying when God suddenly gave him a prayer language that has strengthened him in his prayer life.
"Ned now has a straight pipeline to the Lord," Tina says, "and he listens a lot more.When

Billy Graham has raised up two sons Ned and Franklin who are as deceitful as their father.

Ned Graham, the son of Billy Graham, Southern Baptist minister, president East Gates International, a group that distributes Bibles in China told Christianity Today in an interview that he had abused alcohol and spent an "inappropriate amount of time" with two women on his staff. Grace Community Church, Southern Baptist Convention, in Auburn, Washington--which counted Ned Graham, his wife, and their two sons as members established the fact that Ned Graham was an adulterer, alcoholic, wife abuser, and drug user and revoked Graham's ministerial credentials.
It directed Graham to stop using the title reverend. Yet in a style reminiscent of Jimmy Swaggart, who refused to be defrocked by the Assembly of God denomination, Ned Graham left that congregation for another church.
East Gates, in Sumner, Wash., withdrew its membership in the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability after Ned replaced the board members with his sister Ruth Graham McIntyre, brother-in-law Stephan Tchividjian, and business leader Peter Lowe.
Graham's sister Gigi Tchividjian has joined the office staff and Ned Graham continues as East Gates president.
A December East Gates fund-raising letter included a note from his father saying that "Ruth and I are proud of and grateful to God for our son Ned.
It is interesting to see the most famous "evangelist" (some say) not being able to educate his children, especially Ned. At the same time, having a bunch of so-called Christians following the leadership of such wreckless person. Franklin Graham wears jeans, boots, denim shirt, and leather jacket. He was a teen rebel who drank, smoked, fought, and led police on high-speed chases. He was kicked out of LeTourneau College. He used to be a rebel and a 'bum' got religion and become more sophisticated and formed "the Samaritan's Purse' so that he can fly around the country and charge things to his non-profit corporation. As a result his ministry, Samaritan's Purse, had a run-in with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. The ECFA suspended Samaritan's Purse while it looked into Franklin's (Graham) compensation and use of the company plane.
It's the law of the land that all non profit chairman of corporations must reveal their total salary and that Billy, Ned and Franklin do not to their donors speak volumes of their hypocrisy?
Subject: Mr. Graham
Mr. Graham apologized in regard to the Nixon tapes which were recently broadcast. Although Mr. Graham had no memory of what he had said, he felt it was appropriate at this time to give an apology. He does not actually feel about Jewish people in the way the words were said. Mr. Graham has made many friends over the years among the Jewish leaders and rabbis and has a great respect for them. Please pray for Mr. Graham and our Association--that we will be truly faithful and obedient to our Lord. May God bless you.
Could Mr. Graham, the great American evangelist, really have said the nation's problem lies with "satanic Jews," as Mr. Nixon's aide recorded?
"Those are not my words," Mr. Graham said in a public statement in May 1994.
"They're the ones putting out the pornographic stuff," Mr. Graham said on the tape, after agreeing with Mr. Nixon that left-wing Jews dominate the news media.
Finally, Mr. Graham said that Jews did not know his true feelings about them.
"I go and I keep friends with Mr. Rosenthal at The New York Times and people of that sort, you know," he told Mr. Nixon, referring to A. M. Rosenthal, then the newspaper's executive editor. "And all - I mean, not all the Jews, but a lot of the Jews are great friends of mine, they swarm around me and are friendly to me because they know that I'm friendly with Israel. But they don't know how I really feel about what they are doing to this country. And I have no power, no way to handle them, but I would stand up if under proper circumstances." Mr. Graham, who is now 83 and in poor health, quickly issued a four- sentence apology, but he did not acknowledge making the statements and said he had no memory of the conversation, which took place after a prayer breakfast on Feb. 1, 1972.[1]
The comments were all the more stinging because Graham had long been considered a staunch friend of the Jewish people. He lobbied for freer emigration of Soviet Jews, castigated Southern Baptists for singling out Jews for conversion and has long supported the state of Israel. When the tapes first surfaced, Graham issued an apology but said he couldn't remember making the comments. [2]

They have five children Virginia (Gigi) Graham Foreman, Anne Graham Lotz, who runs AnGeL ministries, Ruth Dienert, Franklin Graham, who administers his international relief organization called Samaritan's Purse and will be the successor at Billy Graham Ministries and Ned Graham, who runs East Gates International, which distributes Christian literature in China.

Pastor Graham has 19 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.
While still a seminarian at Wheaton College, Graham was ordained a Southern Baptist minister in 1939 and served briefly as pastor of the Village Church in western Springs, Illinois, not far from Wheaton, in 1943-44. While there, a friend of Graham's, Torrey Johnson, pastor of the Midwest Bible Church in Chicago, told Graham that his radio program "Songs in the Night" was about to be canceled for lack of funding.
Consulting with the members of his church in Western Springs, Graham decided to take over Johnson's program with financial support from his parishioners.
Launching the new and revitalized radio program on January 2, 1944, still called "Songs in the Night," Graham recruited the baritone George Beverly Shea as his director of radio ministry.
While the radio ministry continued for many years, Graham decided to move on in early 1945.
He served as president of Northwestern College in Minnesota in 1948, and at age 30 was (and still is) the youngest person to serve as a sitting college president.
Initially, Graham intended to become a chaplain
in the armed forces, but shortly after applying for a commission he came down with a severe case of mumps that ended that plan. After a period of recuperation in Florida, Graham went on to co-found Youth for Christ with evangelist Charles Templeton.
Unlike many evangelists then and now, Graham had little formal theological training and he turned down offers to attend Princeton Theological Seminary.
Pastor Graham scheduled a series of revival meetings in Los Angeles in 1949. He erected a series of circus tents in a parking lot. The missions went on for eight weeks after being originally scheduled for only three weeks. The Los Angeles revival is considered to be the time when Billy Graham Ministries became national.
This is because Graham received assistance from powerful news mogul William Randolph Hearst, whose interest in Graham is a mystery, the two never met. This is because Graham received assistance from powerful news mogul William Randolph Hearst, whose interest in Graham is a mystery, the two never met.
Most observers believe that Hearst appreciated Graham's patriotism, appeals to youth, and thought that Graham would be helpful in promoting his conservative anti-communist views.
Graham replied, "I did indeed want to set religion back, not just 100 years but 1,900 years, to the Book of Acts, when first century followers of Christ were accused of turning the Roman Empire upside down."
Graham was offered a five-year, $5 million contract from NBC to appear on television opposite Arthur Godfrey, but he turned it down in favor of continuing his touring revivals. Billy Graham Ministries had missions in London which lasted 12 weeks and a New York City mission in Madison Square Garden in 1957 which ran nightly for 16 weeks. He also led his first crusade in Australia in 1959.
Graham served as the president of Northwestern College in Minnesota from 1948 to 1952.
during the 1960s and Graham refused to speak to segregated auditoriums, once dramatically tearing down the ropes that organizers had erected to separate the audience. Graham said, "There is no scriptural basis for segregation. ...
Graham invited King to join him in the pulpit at his 16-week revival in New York City in 1957.
During that 16-week stint, Billy Graham Ministries was heard by 2.3 million listeners, who gathered to hear Graham at Madison Square Garden, Yankee Stadium and Times Square. King and Graham became friends, with Graham becoming one of the few whites to call King by his birth name "Mike."
Graham's younger son Ned had argued with older son Franklin about whether burial at a library was appropriate.
