Why David Jeremiah Rallied Thousands in Georgia Last Night
Dr. David Jeremiah, New York Times best-selling author and founder of Turning Point—one of the largest syndicated Bible teaching ministries in the world—drew more than 7,000 Christians to an Atlanta-area rally last night, calling them to “Stand Up For Their Faith.”
The exuberant evening was accented by the music of multiple Grammy award-winning artist CeCe Winans and one of America’s most prolific worship artists, Charles Billingsley.
Jeremiah drew his sermon from the resurrection story of Jesus Christ noting that, 2,000 years later, “we are still seeking the living among the dead. We try to find peace, hope, forgiveness and power in the wrong world. It’s not there because He’s [Jesus] not there.”
Jeremiah spoke of the 2016 presidential election, “All the time people are saying to me, ‘I’m just so discouraged and so depressed with all that’s going, I’ve just lost hope.’ I want to say to them, ‘you’ve had your hope in the wrong place.’ … If this year’s election doesn’t prove to you that our hope is not in politics, I don’t know what else could.”
