Billy Graham's Daughter: 'God Always Warns a Nation That Judgment is Coming'
September 8, 2017 | Best selling author and evangelist Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of Pastor Billy Graham, said that "God always warns a nation that judgment is coming" and that the present day may be the time when God is "backing out of our national life and turning us over to ourselves." "God always warns a nation that judgment is coming," said Anne Graham Lotz in a Sept. 6 commentary for the online Christian magazine HelloChristian.com. "He does not want any to perish. But if a nation does not heed His warnings, then He will unleash His anger and there is nothing—no one—who can prevent it."
Quote:
Lotz explained that God is patient with sinners and sinful nations, noting the nation of Judah and how God gave it 22 years to turn from its wickedness. "God moved very slowly, giving plenty of opportunity for Judah to repent of her sin, to turn to Him, and therefore to escape the inevitable judgment," said Lotz, who runs AnGeL Ministries. "But with all of God’s warnings, Judah became even more defiant. More disobedient. Even more wicked. She insisted on her right to immorality and idolatry." "In the end, God became her enemy," said Lotz. "He sent in the Babylonian army to destroy Jerusalem, the temple, and all the people. 2 Chronicles 36:15-19 vividly describes how all those who were not taken captive were slaughtered in the streets."

The evangelist also noted that Psalm 32:6 refers to a time "when God may hide himself" and, she said, "It is a time that I believe may have begun in America." "Our nation is a mess," said Lotz, and America could be losing God's blessing and our sin could be provoking His judgment. "God is backing out of our national life and tunring us over to ourselves," she said.


Quoting Romans 1, Lotz added that "the wrath of God" is "revealed against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness." "So ... if we are coming under the judgment of God – if He is giving us over to ourselves, removing His blessing, protection, and favor – the solution will not be found in politics or in the economy or in the military or in technology," said Anne Graham Lotz. "The only solution will be found on our knees as we humble ourselves, pray, seek God’s face, and repent of our sin," she advised. "And then plead for Him to return to us, as we return to Him. Now is the time to get serious about repentance and prayer."

Anne Graham Lotz, 69. is the author of 11 books, and her most recent is The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations. She was awarded six honorary degrees. She has three children. Her husband, Dr. Daniel Lotz, died in 2015.

FEMA Director: Irma ‘Is Going to Devastate the United States,’ Starting With Florida
September 8, 2017 – FEMA Director Brock Long, in a Friday morning update, told a news conference there’s no question that Hurricane Irma will devastate parts of the souheastern United States:
Quote:
“Obviously, Hurricane Irma continues to be a threat that is going to devastate the United States in either Florida or some of the southeastern states,” Long told a 7:30 a.m. news conference. “This is a complex forecast. Anybody from Alabama to North Carolina should be watching this storm very closely. The forecast and the direct impacts of this storm have yet to be determined because, one, it's a very powerful storm. “But the nature of the curve in that forecast after 72 hours is going to be the key to see who gets the worst impacts here. It's not a question of if Florida’s going to be impacted, it's a question of how bad Florida’s going to be impacted and where the storm ends up over the next four to five days as it passes inland.”

Long said anyone from Alabama to North Carolina needs to monitor Irma and take preparations. “Obviously there's a lot of evacuation activity taking place in Florida over the last 24 to 48 hours. Heed all local warnings,” Long said. “The goal is -- get out of the storm surge-vulnerable area, that is wind-driven, coastal, storm surge flooding waters coming onshore. That's the most devastating hazard associated with hurricanes. Get out of that storm surge area and get into a facility that can withstand the winds. That doesn't mean you have to travel hundreds of miles to do so, but get out of the storm surge area into a facility that can withstand the winds

Later today, I know that other states are also considering evacuation movement, and the jurisdiction ask or call for mandatory evacuations -- may be directed by the governor or your local officials. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Florida Republican who represents the Miami-Dade area, told CNN’s “New Day” on Friday that “this mother of a storm…it’s going to impact everybody” in Florida. She said in terms of preparations, Miami-Dade is as prepared as it can be, with another eight shelters opening today: “Whether we're going to all be great after a storm of this magnitude, of course we can't predict that. But how much can you plan? We have done it. We've got everything functioning, and people are talking to one another. The first responders are ready.

It's a shame what's happening in the Keys, in an area I used to represent. Chris, people just did not evacuate from the Keys, and as all the first responders have said, ‘We are not going to be there to save you.’” Ros-Lehtinen said “a lot” of people living in the Florida Keys decided to stay behind. “People don't want to leave their homes, and I understand that. But if you can, it is not too late. The shelters are open,” the congresswoman said. “So Miami-Dade is as ready as you can be, but this is a monster of a hurricane.”
