Biblical prophecy may ignite fears during a turbulent period, but the dire warnings of Billy Graham on the end times also reveal confidence in a reawakening of Christian faith. The renowned man of God urges repentance for people worried about the end of the world and renewed strength for believers.

Here are five quotes of guidance and hope from the Christian leader:

1. “There is only one answer to the travail of this present age, and it is found in the ageless pages of God’s Word, the Bible,” Graham wrote in his book “Storm Warning” in 2010.

“Scripture speaks of earthquakes, wars, and rumors of wars, and warns us with urgency to prepare for the storms to come.”


2. “The Bible repeatedly tells us that someday Christ will return — not in weakness, the way He came the first time, but with power and glory, and with great authority,” Graham noted in explaining the time of Christ’s return. Although no one knows the exact date this will occur, there’s still a reason to keep it in mind.


“Why is the second coming of Christ important? First, it gives us hope — hope that someday all the sin and evil of this world will be banished, and peace and justice will rule.”


3. “Don’t ignore Him or push Him off into a corner, but put your faith and trust in Him. Then learn to walk with Him every day, so you may be found among those ‘who have longed for his appearing (2 Timothy 4:8),’” the evangelist advised. The Bible reveals that the return of Christ is near and preparation is a key to salvation, according to Billy Graham, warning of the end times.

4. “There’s a great deal to say in the Bible about the signs we’re to watch for and when these signs all converge at one place we can be sure that we’re close to the end of the age,” Graham wrote in a 2013 email interview with WND.com. “And those signs, in my judgment, are converging now for the first time since Jesus made those predictions.”


5. “This is an exciting and thrilling time to be alive,” Graham wrote in his book “The Reason for My Hope: Salvation,” which also included positive messages from Billy Graham on the end times.

“The Apocalypse (the unveiling of the end times) speaks powerfully of trouble ahead with storm warnings that carry a booming jolt of truth. The warning is clear: prepare to meet thy God — followed by the voice of the gentle Shepherd — ‘Come.’”

Graham assures believers that “until then God wants to give everyone an opportunity to know Christ through repentance and faith.”
