The Rev. Franklin Graham said Friday that the "historic" Brexit vote had been foreshadowed in the Bible and urged leaders in both Europe and the United States to look to God for "wisdom and discernment" amid the ensuing upheaval.
"With the breakdown of immigration laws and economies, millions of Europeans feel that their politicians have failed them," Graham said on Facebook. He is president of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the Samaritan's Purse global charity.
"We don't know what the #EUReferendum vote means long-term, but I know that this is at least a temporary setback for the politicians in this country and around the world who want a one-world government and a one-world currency," Graham said. "The Bible speaks that one day this will take place.
"Join me in praying for all of those impacted and that Europe's leaders, as well as our leaders in the United States, will look to Almighty God for wisdom and discernment in these trying and complex times in which we live."
