Billy Graham Ministry To Focus On End Time – Return of Jesus Christ

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association will focus on the return of Jesus Christ and help prepare believers for life in the last days in 2009, according to a recent announcement.

Writing in one of the several resources that the ministry is providing on the End Times, Rev. Billy Graham said, “People ask me, ‘Do you really believe that Jesus Christ is going to come back to this earth again?”

“Yes, I do,” he continues. “The Bible teaches that Jesus is coming again. And I don’t see any other hope, because we’re heading toward a catastrophe in our world.

“The most important question, however, is this: Are you ready for Christ’s return?”

Towards this end, the ministry has compiled a number of End Times resources including a message delivered by Graham in 1998, a 2008 message from BGEA president and CEO Franklin Graham, an article adapted from a message delivered by Anne Graham Lotz in 1996, an End Times article on the basics of the Second Coming, and a couple of Q&As with Billy Graham that includes a question on whether the world will end in 2009, according to news reports.

Through its compilation of resources on the Second Coming of Christ, the BGEA hopes that believers will learn how they can fulfill God’s plan for their life, increase their love for the Savior and grow their faith during these times.

The world renowned evangelist also reminds believers that regardless of when Christ returns, the end of the world does come for each and every single person – the moment that they die.

“[A]nd that could be at any time for any of us. We never know,” Graham states.

  1. The world is filled with troubles…..but it’s all part of HIS master plan. I don’t need to worry about any of it. All I need to do is keep my focus on HIM! I gave my life to Jesus Christ at a Billy Graham crusade in Houston, Texas back in the 1960’s….and on that day, my name was written in the book of the Lamb. It is my prayer that all who read this keep on keeping on with the Great Commission — spread the word! He’s coming……and he’s coming soon! God bless you all!

  2. With each passing day, it is becoming more obvious and less questionable as to whether or not we are entering the last-days era. I am glad to see that Graham’s ministry is focusing on informing believers and non-believers alike, especially when biblical prophecies are becoming more irrefutable and clearer than ever before in relation to how the world is setting-up for them to be fulfilled (not to mention those that have already been fulfilled). The point of all of this is that we need to have passion and motivation stirred and awakened within us to reach out to the lost before it’s too late for them. It’s thrilling to know that we’re alive in a time where the return of Jesus in our lifetime is becoming more and more likely, but it should equally propel us to not waste any opportunity to witness and profess the love of Christ to others we see on a daily basis, whether by word or action. If we ask God to provide us those opportunities, He will faithfully do so.
