Speaking on the final day of his three-day evangelistic event in Jersey Shore Sunday, Will Graham delivered a message on the end times in response to Harold Camping's failed prediction that the rapture would occur on May 21.
Graham, grandson of the legendary Rev. Billy Graham, explained to the crowd of over 5,000 at the Jersey Shore Will Graham Celebration in Ocean Grove, N.J., what the end times will look like and what the signs to the end times are.
