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.
"I believe Jesus is soon to return to take all of His followers to Heaven with Him in what is referred to as the Rapture. While this will be deliverance for His people, can you imagine the impact on our nation, let alone the world, when suddenly every single authentic Christian disappears?" she asked.
"Institutions will collapse. Banks will close. The Stock Market will plunge. Planes will fall out of the sky. Cars will crash on the road. Government in America at every level will disintegrate. Families will be torn apart. In the unprecedented turmoil, our nation will be vulnerable for our enemies to seize the moment and attack us. There will be mass chaos, confusion, fear, grief, despair, anger, threats, danger… judgment," she added.
As a result of this warning, Lotz has announced the MAYDAY Prayer Initiative.
"In these days of desperation and confusion, hopelessness and helplessness, when mountains are collapsing, nations are warring, people are rioting, the Earth is quaking, and the enemy is threatening, it's time to cry out to the Lord! Now!" explained a note on the initiative.
Lotz called for a period of prayer and fasting for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit from May 15 to 23 — the nine days between the day of the Ascension of Jesus and the Day of Pentecost.
"On each of those nine days, join Anne Graham Lotz and thousands of other followers of Jesus Christ, as together we implore God to save us from our distress. Before Jesus comes and judgment falls," noted the initiative.
Those joining the initiative are being asked to pray for one hour each day.
"For those who sign up, I will provide a prayer I have written personally for each of the nine days, as well as a brief video message, so that we pray with one accord. Before it's too late and judgment falls on our nation," Lotz said.
