In continuing with a warning she gave last week on her website that God will soon unleash his judgment upon America, Billy Graham's 66-year-old daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, further clarified on Wednesday that biblical signs are indicating that the rapture will occur during her lifetime.
Lotz, who turns 67 on Thursday, previously proclaimed by citing the book of Joel that God's judgement upon America is "going to be ugly." In a Wednesday Interview with CBN News, she explained that all the signs that the book of Joel points out as "birth pains" directly preceding the Day of the Lord have come to fruition.
"So the birth pains, the signs that Jesus gives, whether it is in the environmental world or national world, the wars, or the persecution of Christians, the persecution of Jews, when we see that ratcheting up and increasing in frequency and in intensity in the same generation that sees the Gospel being preached to the whole world and Israel reborn as a nation, that's the generation that is the last," Lotz stated. more >>
In the delivery of a warning from God she says almost made the hair stand up on the back of her neck when she got it, Billy Graham's Daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, said God's judgement is coming to America and "it's going to be ugly."
"This past spring, Joel Rosenberg and I taught through the book of Joel as we led a prophecy seminar at The Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove. It was my privilege to give the first two messages that covered Joel 1:1 through Joel 2:17. The impact on me was profound," wrote Lotz in a post on her website on April 30.
"Both times, when I stepped off of the platform, I knew God had spoken. The messages almost made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Why? Because God was clearly warning that His judgment is coming on America and on our world, and it's going to be ugly. I knew it then, and I know it now," she noted. more >>
Dallas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress said Sunday during his "Countdown to the Apocalypse," sermon series that it was Satan who delivered the religion of Islam to the prophet Muhammad and further asserted that following that religion will "lead you to hell."
In his six-week sermon series, Jeffress, who pastors Dallas' 11,000-member First Baptist Church, explains how Jesus told of the rise of radical Islam and that increased Christian persecution around the world would "precede His return to this Earth."
In a Sunday sermon, the 59-year-old attempted to debunk the claim that Muhammad was delivered Islam by an angel and stated that the angel Muhammad saw was really the devil desguised "as an angel of light." more >>
A group of Christian scholars representing a "new Christian Zionism" seek to distance their views from the "wild, crazy, popular apocalypticism" with which Christian Zionists have often been associated.
Eleven speakers, mostly theologians, presented at the April 17 conference, "People of the Land: A Twenty-First Century Case for Christian Zionism," hosted by the Institute on Religion and Democracy at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Most of the talks were based upon a chapter for a book expected to be published sometime in the next two years.
While the group does not agree on everything, they are united in the belief that God's covenants with Israel were not displaced by Jesus Christ and the Church. In other words, while Jesus is central to salvation, God will remain faithful to the promises He made to the Jewish people. How, exactly, that works itself out will continue to be a matter of study and debate. more >>
Former U.S. congresswoman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann claimed that the "rapture of the Church" is looming and will be brought to reality due to the foreign policies of president Barack Obama, and added that God will punish the United States for disobeying His will.
As previously reported by The Christian Post, the 59-year-old Minnesotan recently spoke with Jan Markell on the "Understanding the End Times" radio program and labeled Obama's foreign policy — specifically his desire for a nuclear deal with Iran – as being "pro the goals of Islamic Jihad." She added that Obama's foreign policy will lead to the coming of the Islamic Messiah (Mahdi) and the return of Jesus Christ.
This past weekend, the second part of Bachmann's interview with Markell aired and Bachmann again asserted that the second coming of Christ is right around the corner. But in part two of the interview, she also weighed in on the impact that abortion and gay marriage have on God's view of the United States. more >>
Former congresswoman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has accused President Barack Obama of being "pro the goals of Islamic jihad," which she explains includes welcoming the "hidden imam" to bring on the apocalypse.
In appearing on the "Understanding the End Times" radio program with Jan Markell last weekend, the 59-year-old Minnesotan bashed the president's foreign policy goals as being aligned with the goals of Islamic extremists, who she argues have the ultimate goal of bringing about the end of the world and paving the way for the Islamic Messiah.
"Our president, who is as consistent in his foreign policy world view, which is to be anti-Israel and pro, and I'll say it in my own words, pro the goals of Islamic jihad, because that is what we are seeing," Bachmann asserted. "These are the goals of Islamic jihad." more >>
