Famed evangelist Billy Graham is set to release a never-before-seen video to coincide with his 96th birthday — a message telling viewers that "this life counts" and that having faith in God is paramount.
Graham's new commentary, which was filmed last year at his home in Montreat North Carolina, will be included in a new film being released by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on November 7, titled, "Heaven."

It will feature the stories of Cheyane Caldwell, a Los Angeles firefighter, and Laurie Coombs, a speaker and writer, though its exact themes and contents have not been revealed. Additionally, it will include a new message from Graham.
According to the evangelist's organization, the goal of "Heaven" is to help churches and Christians share their faith with others. Believers are being encouraged to order free copies of the DVD and to plan related events in their communities to help spread the gospel.
"We are asking God to move in the hearts of people across the country," Steve Rhoads, vice president of "My Hope 2014 with Billy Graham," said in a press release. "But, it begins as Christians everywhere pray specifically for people they know who need to hear this message of hope."

As TheBlaze reported, Graham commemorated his 95th birthday last year with the release of what was then dubbed his final “sermon” to America.
Through a special video broadcast called “The Cross,” Graham warned that the nation is in “great need of a spiritual awakening” and that he has wept over how far the nation has moved away from God.
