Franklin Graham: Prepare for Jesus Christ’s Return

The numerous hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, and other natural phenomena affecting the world today should serve as a reminder that people need to be prepared for the return of Jesus Christ, said evangelist Franklin Graham.

“Wildfires raging on the West Coast. Violent hurricanes, one after the other, ravaging everything in their paths, with one of the worst — Irma—bearing down on Florida. A magnitude 8.1 earthquake shook the southern parts of Mexico this week, and we even recently experienced a rare solar eclipse,” Graham said in a Facebook post on Sunday.

“The Bible says in Luke 21:25, ‘…there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves.’ In Matthew 24:7 it says, ‘For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.’ These are some of the Biblical signs before Christ’s return.”

Graham, who is the CEO and president of Samaritan’s Purse, one of the Christian relief groups helping in the hurricane disasters afflicting America, said “nobody knows the day or hour, not even the Son of God.”

Still, he said that it is a “reminder to all of us to be ready—to repent and confess our sins, and ask for God’s forgiveness.”
