Kathie Lee Gifford, a co-host from TODAY, often makes headlines for her strong Christian faith. One of her boldest moves thus far was when she unloaded the Gospel on Megyn Kelly’s show following the death of the legendary Rev. Billy Graham earlier this year.
"What just happened for Billy, happened for my husband, happened for my mother, for my father. Everybody that dies in Christ goes immediately into the arms of Christ for eternity,” Gifford explained to Kelly. “That is the hope of the Christian faith.”
"Yes, it gives us the tools we need to live in the world today while we are alive," Gifford added. "But that's why I could hold my dead husband in my arms and rejoice, because I knew where he was. And it gives you the peace that surpasses all understanding."
In a recent interview with CBN News, Gifford revealed why she decided to share the Gospel on Kelly’s show. According to CBN, Gifford had actually been sharing the Lord with Kelly on a weekly basis during lunch prior to Graham’s passing.
“I just felt the anointing of the Holy Spirit that day on Megyn Kelly’s TV show,” she said. “I’m not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and for too many centuries we have been.”
“We’ve shied away, we’ve been afraid. We don’t want to be chastised. We don’t want to be persecuted,” the talk show host continued. “Jesus said, ‘If you are my followers you will be chastised, you will be hated. But call it all joy.’”
