Anne Graham Lotz has warned Christians to get ready for the Rapture, saying the event could happen at any moment. In an article published on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website, the evangelist and daughter of Billy Graham described the Rapture as a trip that people should allocate "time, thought and energy" for.
Lotz wrote about the Bible's advice for all followers of Jesus to plan and prepare for a trip. She described the trip as one that will not only be undertaken when believers move to heaven following death, but also one that will take place at the end of human history.
Preparation includes getting informed and being prepared to leave this world at a moment's notice.
According to Lotz, believers in this age could very likely be the one and only generation in history that will not undergo the same kind of death to which billions of others in the past have succumbed to. "We are told that believers in the last generation will not experience physical death, but will be caught up in what is called the 'rapture'... the 'snatching away'... to meet Jesus in the air and be reunited with loved ones who have died in Christ and have gone before us," she pointed out.
Meanwhile, Lotz wrote another message for America in time for the National Day of Prayer on May 4. There, she stated why the nation should be on its knees in repentance now more than ever. "We need God – our nation is unraveling...disintegrating into anger, anarchy, division," she said. "The polarization seems to be paralyzing our government," Lotz went on to say.
