Commenting on the turmoil in the United States and other nations evidenced by radical Islamic terrorism, economic uncertainty, political turbulence, and chaotic weather, among other things, Christian evangelist Anne Graham Lotz said these phenomena were “God’s wake-up calls” for people to pray, because we’re near the point of no return “and judgment will fall.”
In a radio interview on the nationally syndicated Janet Mefferd Today show, Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of pastor Billy Graham, said, “I have to pray, and pray with seriousness and earnestness for our nation, and not only for America.”
“I pray for Jerusalem, I pray for Israel, I pray for our world, and I pray for the revival of God’s people – that God would wake them up,” said Lotz. “And that may be what San Bernardino is about, or Brussels, or Paris, you know.”
“We can’t ignore these wake-up calls, or things that are happening in our weather or in our political situation,” she said.
“They’re wake-up calls,” said Lotz, the founder of AnGeL Ministries. “God is telling the church, I believe, to wake up, and it’s time to hit your knees and pray because I believe we’re looking at the end of human history as we know it.”
“I believe everything is ratcheting up, preparing for the return of Jesus,” she said, “but before He comes back, it’s going to get really ugly.”
Host Janet Mefferd said she agreed with Lotz, and then noted that the website of a church in Michigan had been hacked by the Islamic State. “This is America, folks,” said Mefferd. “This isn’t Nigeria or Afghanistan or Syria. This is the United States and I wonder if we really understand the wake-up call that God is giving us.’”
Anne Graham Lotz then revealed that her greatest fear is that “something drastic would happen to our nation, whether it was a nuclear strike or ISIS popping up all over the place or something – the economy collapsing – and to know that I had sensed something bad was coming but I didn’t do anything about it.”
“I believe something is about ready to break and something’s getting ready to blow, and it’s time for God’s people to pre-prayer,” she said, “it’s time for us to pray before that happens.”
Earlier in the interview, Lotz told Mefferd, “I don’t think it’s too late yet, Janet. But I believe we’re reaching that tipping point. I honestly believe we’re dangerously close to reaching a point where there’ll be no return and judgment will fall.”
Anne Graham Lotz, 67, is the daughter of Billy and Ruth Graham. She has three children and her husband, Dr. Daniel Lotz, passed away in 2015. Anne Graham Lotz holds six honorary degrees and is the author of 12 books.
