This year is turning out to be an apocalypticist’s dream, with a series of doomsday-like events. 2020 kicked off with the threat of world war three, and with Australia on fire. Things have not got any better as the entire planet has been plagued by the coronavirus, in what has at points seem like the end of the world, or at least the end of normality as we know it.
This has led to a series of apocalyptic predictions, including the supposed end of the world yesterday according to revised reviewing of the Maya calendar.
One such proponent of the rapture was Billy Graham, the controversial US pastor who died in 2018.
Mr Graham’s organisation has continued his apocalyptic forecasts, including a prediction from his son, Franklin Graham.
Franklin posted on Facebook, referencing the book of Revelation: “Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.”
Franklin added: “Jesus Christ came to earth as a suffering Servant.
“He will return as conquering King. A day of reckoning is coming, and we are invited to be ready.
“Have you bowed your heart in repentance and faith before the King of kings?”
The website BillyGraham.org analysed Franklin’s claims: “That’s the most important question you’ll ever answer.
“Take a careful look at some of the things Jesus said about His return.
“From the coronavirus pandemic to natural disasters, many people are asking whether specific events are signs of the end times. The short answer is we don’t know.
“When events at home and around the world cause you to despair, remember that Jesus has overcome the world, and He will come back for His people.
“As Billy Graham once said, ‘I have read the last page of the Bible. It is all going to turn out all right’.”
