Noting the establishment of the State of Israel in May 1948 and world events in relation to that and Bible prophecy, Billy Graham’s evangelist daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, said the world is “unraveling,” it is “the judgment of God,” and that the signs show “the end is near” and “we are looking at the end of human history.”
“Jesus is coming, Jesus is coming – I don’t mean some day,” she said. “I mean He’s coming soon."
"[T]he time clock of human history is winding down,” said Anne Graham Lotz in a revival speech about the End Times. “I believe that we’re living in the last generation before He comes back."
Anne Graham Lotz, 67, is one of the five children of Billy and Ruth Graham. She founded AnGeL Ministries and is the author of 11 books. She holds six honorary doctorates and regularly preaches at evangelical conferences in the United Sattes and abroad.
The New York Times named Anne Graham Lotz one of the five most influential evangelists in the United States in 1999.
In her talk on the End Times, Anne Graham Lotz said Israel “came back into being as a result of the Holocaust and World War II. The Jews came from all over the world and they reestablished the nation of Israel and the family of nations in May 1948.”
“That’s significant to me because I was born in May 1948,” she said. “I believe that’s my generation. And Jesus said the generation that sees that take place is the generation that’s going to see His return. And I believe, and let me just say it, okay? I believe that if I live out my natural lifetime, I will live to see the return of Jesus Christ to this Earth.”
“I believe that we’re living in the last generation before He comes back,” said Billy Graham’s daughter. “I base that not on my feelings, not on my hopes, I base it on the signs and what I see going on in our world today. Jesus said not only the fig tree would begin to blossom, the generation that sees that is the generation that will see His return, but Jesus said in Matthew 24:14, that when the gospel is preached to the whole world, then the end will come.

“It doesn’t say that every person hears it, but that the gospel will be preached to the whole world,” she said. “The gospel is being preached to the whole world and I believe we’re living in then, then the end will come.”

“I believe the signs that Jesus gives us are telling us that the end is near,” she continued. “We are looking at the end of human history – that our generation is the generation that perceives the return of Christ.”
“Jesus said nobody knows the day, nobody knows the hour, but – listen to me – you can know the generation, okay?” said Anne Graham Lotz. “Jesus said, don’t let it catch you like a thief coming in the night. You should not be surprised when that sky unfolds and Jesus comes back. We’re expecting him to come and we have the signs to know what time it is. And the time is short. Watch, therefore, he says. Don’t let anybody deceive you.”
“The world is crumbling, isn’t it?” she continued. “It’s unraveling, and I don’t think it’s going to get better – I think superficially maybe, but it’s not really going to get better, not if what we’re experiencing is the judgment of God, which I believe it is.”

In concluding her remarks, Anne Graham Lotz said, “Jesus is coming. Jesus is coming. Jesus is coming – I don’t mean some day. I mean He’s coming soon. Five minutes before you see Him face to face, what will you wish you’d done differently? And when you see Him face to face, will you say, ‘My goodness, if only I’d known what time it was, I would have done this or I would have done that.’”
“Or will you be living in such a way that when you see His face, there’s a smile there, welcoming you home, because you were somebody that lived by the clock,” she said.
