For seventy years, the evangelist Billy Graham has proclaimed the need for people to realize that Jesus Christ is coming soon. The 97-year-old preacher has preached to more than 2 billion people over the course of his long ministry, and has been a spiritual advisor to many U.S. presidents.

While Graham does not practice predicting an exact time or date that Jesus is coming, he does believe that Christians should be prepared for it to happen at any moment.

Here are six quotes from Graham about the second coming:
  • “We are to wait for the coming of Christ with patience. We are to watch with anticipation. We are to work with Zeal. We are to prepare with urgency. Scripture says Christ is coming when you’re least expecting him. Coming as a thief. He said, ‘Be prepared. Get Ready. Prepare to meet thy God. Are you prepared?’”
  • “Some years ago, my wife, Ruth, was reading the draft of a book I was writing. When she finished a section describing the terrible downward spiral of our nation’s moral standards and the idolatry of worshiping false gods such as technology and sex, she startled me by exclaiming, ‘If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.’”
  • “When Christ comes again — as he repeatedly promised to do — he will come through the heavens with glory and power, accompanied by a host of angels. All the earth will see His coming, and even His enemies will realize they have been opposing the Son of God. The Bible says, “Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him…. So shall it be! (Revelation 1:7).”
  • “The Bible does indicate that as the time for Christ’s return approaches, evil and social chaos may well intensify. The Bible says that “evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived (2 Timothy 3:13)."
  • “The Bible tells us that as the time for Christ’s return approaches, Satan will unleash one final burst of opposition against God and His plans for the world. One of the ways he will do this is through a person of great power and evil, known as the Antichrist.”
  • “Now the will of man runs riot in the earth. Then the will of the Lord will alone be done. Until that time, we are under orders from the King of kings to proclaim His message.”
  • "Our world is filled with fear, hate, lust, greed, war, and utter despair. Surely the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is the only hope of replacing these depressing features with trust, love, universal peace, and prosperity."
