Billy Graham’s family is not known to be shy. His late wife Ruth once stated, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” It was a clarion call to repentance.
His son Franklin Graham has inherited the evangelist’s fervor, regularly posting newsworthy comments on his Facebook page and appearing on Fox News to warn of the threat of Islamic terror. In response to the August 2017 riots at Virginia, Franklin Graham posted, “Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in #Charlottesville, VA. That’s absurd. What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924… why didn’t the mayor or the governor see that a powder keg was about to explode and stop it before it got started? …Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts. Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity.” Franklin is a Christian leader known for blunt truth-telling.
Yet few may have heard the boldness of Billy Graham’s second daughter Anne Graham Lotz, that is, until recent weeks. On the 7th of August 2017, Anne posted a warning of impending judgment in a blog titled “Is God’s Judgment Coming on America?” and tied it to Pastor Steve Cioccolanti’s video called “Is the USA in the Bible? Great American Eclipses of 2017 & 2024 – Real End Time Signs?“. Anne quoted Joel 2:31, an ominous reference to the end times, “The sun will be turned to darkness…before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.”
Back on 20 May 2015, Anne Graham Lotz said in an interview with CBN, “The day of the Lord is a time of judgment. It’s a time when God’s patience runs out. It’s a day of reckoning. And I felt that God was saying that the day of the Lord is near, and I felt specifically he was warning America…when the message comes through that the day of the Lord is near, we are to cry out, rend our hearts, which is a deep repentance.”
On 7 August 2017, Anne urged her followers, “Please view the following video posted by Australian pastor Steve Cioccolanti. Pastor Steve articulates the warning in a very clear, undeniable, yet undogmatic way based on his understanding of Biblical truth.”
Her call to action was clear like her father’s altar calls at the end of his crusades, “Without doubt this is the time for God’s people to get right with God. To repent of our own sin. To share the Gospel with our neighbors. And to pray that in the midst of His coming wrath, God would remember mercy (Habakkuk 3:2).”
Having accepted Christ at the age of 8 years old, after watching Cecil B DeMille’s classic film “The King of Kings”, Anne Graham Lotz is a Christian ambassador in the footsteps of her inspiring father. Pastor Steve Cioccolanti acknowledged her blog on his own Facebook page, “What a distinct honour. This only confirms when the Lord wants to reach people He will use even a donkey like me.”
The story has been picked up by widespread Christian outlets, including The Christian Post, ChurchLeaders.com, “Faith Family America“, and CNSNews. You can watch the YouTube video explaining the Biblical significance of the two solar eclipses crossing continental America in 2017 and 2024 here:
