Storm Warning by Billy Graham

Whether global recession, terrorist threats, or devastating natural disasters, these ominous shadows must bring us back to the Gospel.
An examination of the imminence of Christ's return in light of today's headlines and the events recorded in Scripture.
he morning newspapers are jammed with alarming headlines and stories asking questions no one can answer. In Storm Warning, Billy Graham examines the problems facing America today compared with what is to come as revealed in the Bible. He answers the tough questions as only he can with astute biblical insight, and points to the hope and renewal found in Christ—for our families, our nation, and our world.
Includes an in-depth analysis of the four horsemen of Revelation chapter six as well as insight on:

•Signs of the times
•The Apocalypse
•Standing before God

My review:
Wheter you are interested in Bible prophecy or just an avid reader of Billy Graham's work, I believe you will find what you are looking for in Storm Warnings.  This book was first written in 1992 and revised and updated in lieu of today world happenings and republished in 2010.
Whenever any disaster would befall our world my mother would always reply, "it's just another sign of the times".  Often I understood this but there was so much I did not.  Billy Graham has taken todays world events and placed them in perspective.  With wars, rumors of wars, natural disasters, financial disasters and more this book is a must read.  Billy Graham doesn't disappoint.  He helps us see the connections between what is gpoing on now in the world and what the scriptures have to say.  He helps us see what we can expect all the while pointing the way to Jesus as Savior of the World.  I will be passing this book on with the stipulation that the next person and the next, etc. passes it on.  This is a must read book.

  1. [Read this on the internet - Rosa]


    Many are still unaware of the eccentric, 180-year-old British theory underlying the politics of American evangelicals and Christian Zionists.
    Journalist and historian Dave MacPherson has spent more than 40 years focusing on the origin and spread of what is known as the apocalyptic "pretribulation rapture" - the inspiration behind Hal Lindsey's bestsellers of the 1970s and Tim LaHaye's today.
    Although promoters of this endtime evacuation from earth constantly repeat their slogan that "it's imminent and always has been" (which critics view more as a sales pitch than a scriptural statement), it was unknown in all official theology and organized religion before 1830.
    And MacPherson's research also reveals how hostile the pretrib rapture view has been to other faiths:
    It is anti-Islam. TV preacher John Hagee has been advocating "a pre-emptive military strike against Iran." (Google "Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism.")
    It is anti-Jewish. MacPherson's book "The Rapture Plot" (see Armageddon Books etc.) exposes hypocritical anti-Jewishness in even the theory's foundation.
    It is anti-Catholic. Lindsey and C. I. Scofield are two of many leaders who claim that the final Antichrist will be a Roman Catholic. (Google "Pretrib Hypocrisy.")
    It is anti-Protestant. For this reason no major Protestant denomination has ever adopted this escapist view.
    It even has some anti-evangelical aspects. The first publication promoting this novel endtime view spoke degradingly of "the name by which the mixed multitude of modern Moabites love to be distinguished, - the Evangelical World." (MacPherson's "Plot," p. 85)
    Despite the above, MacPherson proves that the "glue" that holds constantly in-fighting evangelicals together long enough to be victorious voting blocs in elections is the same "fly away" view. He notes that Jerry Falwell, when giving political speeches just before an election, would unfailingly state: "We believe in the pretribulational rapture!"
    In addition to "The Rapture Plot," MacPherson's many internet articles include "Famous Rapture Watchers," "Pretrib Rapture Diehards," "Edward Irving is Unnerving," "America's Pretrib Rapture Traffickers," "Thomas Ice (Bloopers)," "Pretrib Rapture Secrecy" and "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty" (massive plagiarism, phony doctorates, changing of early "rapture" documents in order to falsely credit John Darby with this view, etc.!).
    Because of his devastating discoveries, MacPherson is now No. 1 on the "hate" list of pretrib rapture leaders who love to ban or muddy up his uber-accurate findings in sources like Wikipedia - which they've almost turned into Wicked-pedia!
    There's no question that the leading promoters of this bizarre 19th century end-of-the-world doctrine are solidly pro-Israel and necessarily anti-Palestinian. In light of recently uncovered facts about this fringe-British-invented belief which has always been riddled with dishonesty, many are wondering why it should ever have any influence on Middle East affairs.
    This Johnny-come-lately view raises millions of dollars for political agendas. Only when scholars of all faiths begin to look deeply at it and widely air its "dirty linen" will it cease to be a power. It is the one theological view no one needs!
    With apologies to Winston Churchill - never has so much deception been foisted on so many by so few!

    [I agree with the above. And pretribulation raptiles hate MacPherson's "The Rapture Plot" - which I bought at Armageddon Books online - more than any other book! Into 2012ism? Google "The Newest Pretrib Calendar." By all means Google "Franklin Graham's Warning" also!]

  2. I am a former Southern Baptist Deacon and my wife and I currently attend a United Methodist Church. I believe as Dr. Graham that the spirit of the Christian dead lives on in heaven;however, I disagree concerning the time of the rapture and the bodily resurrection. I believe in a midtributional rapture that takes place in Revelation 11. Dr. Gleaswon Archer, BD of Princeton Theological Seminary believed that way. Pretribs believe that the rapture at Revelation 4:1.
