Reverent Billy Graham delivered an urgent warning to America.
According to him all problems in the United States rise from people’s self-centered obsessions, their pride and shamelessness for their sins.
Still, he continues to maintain hope that Americans will be redeemed and return to God.
According to a report from Newsmax, Billy Graham, at the age of 98 decided to step down from the pulpit and put an end to his days as America’s savior. The evangelist has served his time as a spiritual guide to his people among whom, some were even presidents, both Republican and Democrat, since the time of Harry Truman.
His crusades, books, TV and radio broadcasts will continue to keep his name remembered by the people, not just in America but all over the world.
He is a man who has preached the gospel to masses of people. Back in 2012, Graham warned Americans in his open prayer letter saying:“My heart aches for America and its deceived people.” But, he also made a remark that there is a precedent for redemption in the Holy Bible.
He referenced the ancient Biblical city of Nineveh, introduced in the gospels of Matthew and Luke : “When the Prophet Jonah finally traveled to Nineveh and proclaimed God’s warning, people heard and repented.”
He said : “I believe the same thing can happen once again, this time in our nation.”
However the possibility of end time still gives him a grave concern. In an exclusive email interview for WND he stated, the signs “are converging now for the first time since Jesus made those predictions.”
In his book in 2015 he said that the concept of Hell is a “hideous reality” for people who “refuse to let God come into their lives,” adding “Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond.”
He said that people are quick to condemn others like various serial killers, Osama bin Laden, Hitler, or Cambodia’s Pol Pot to Hell for their sins, but excuse themselves from that same condemnation for turning their backs from God.
“Some believe they will automatically walk into Heaven when this early life is over because God is love,” he wrote. “That would negate the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross.”
The reverent told Newsmax that many Americans are even developing a new religion that fits into their individual preferences. Graham says :“We as a nation have turned our back on God who blessed our country because its fundamental principles were grounded in the Word of God.”
In a radio sermon from 1962 that he reprinted on his website in 2014, he stressed the fact that our Founding Fathers carried out plans and hopes through the help of prayer.
He asked “If this nation was born in a meeting based on prayer — some of its most important decisions being made only after careful prayer to God — how can we go on unless there is renewed emphasis on prayer today?”
This man of God offers one simple solution, that Americans establish a personal connection with God.
According to him this is the path to eternal salvation, and not only that, but also the path to preserving our status as a great nation.
