The daughter of America’s most famous evangelist, Billy Graham, says God is “clearly warning that His judgment is coming on America, and it’s going to be ugly.”
Ann Graham Lotz is calling on Americans to participate in a “Mayday” time of prayer and intercession May 15-23. She hopes to “delay or soften God’s judgment that is coming on America and our world” and urge the Holy Spirit to “compel the church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God.”
Lotz’s warnings are startlingly specific.
In a recent message on her website, she said she believes Jesus “is soon to return to take all of His followers to Heaven with Him in what is referred to as The Rapture.”
The Family Research Council is among the Christian groups promoting the prayer campaign. FRC Chaplain Pierre Bynum wrote, “Please take Anne’s call to heart.”
Carl Gallups, pastor, radio host and author of the end-times bestseller “Final Warning: Understanding the Trumpet Days of Revelation,” says America is already becoming like those doomed cities.
“I am frequently asked if God’s judgment is really getting ready to fall upon America,” he said. “My answer is that it has already begun! Most Americans don’t want to hear that answer. But the facts are staring us in the face. There is already a monumental moral collapse taking place in America.
“Because God has been removed from our schools and our culture, we can see the tangible results of this kind of anti-Christian thinking. Americans feel free to kill our babies for convenience, declare biblical marriage is no longer valid, encourage our children to engage in premarital sex, and persuade our culture to indulge all manner of deviant sexual behaviors. Once you go far enough down this path, a society will grow to hate the Word of God and the people of God who hold to that foundation. We are now there … and the tide continues to rise,” he said.
Joel Richardson, author of “When a Jew Rules the World: What the Bible Really Says About Israel in the Plan of God,” agrees it is time for Americans to repent.
Richardson urges Christians to be especially fervent during this critical time. And he cautions believers that if judgment truly is forthcoming, it will center on those who call themselves Christians.
“If the Lord should chastise this nation, He will begin with the house of God. Today there are very popular preachers who claim that all judgment was poured out on Christ on the cross and therefore He would never judge a nation. Such is the logic of the serpent in the garden. It is an absolute perversion of what the Scriptures actually teach,” he said.
