Franklin Graham’s Sister Issues A Prophetic Warning

Anne Graham Lotz


Franklin Graham has one brother, Ned, and three sisters — Gigi, Anne and Ruth. The best known of his siblings is Anne Graham Lotz, who is widely recognized as an outstanding Bible teacher. She has a ministry called AnGeL Ministries which is located in Raleigh, North Carolina (

In May of this year, Anne wrote on her website that she believes Jesus is going to return soon “to take all of His followers to Heaven with Him in what is referred to as the Rapture.” She warned that for those unbelievers who are left behind, “God’s judgment is coming and it’s going to be ugly.” She further wrote:

While this [the Rapture] will be deliverance for His people, can you imagine the impact on our nation, let alone the world, when suddenly every single authentic Christian disappears?

Institutions will collapse. Banks will close. The Stock Market will plunge. Planes will fall out of the sky. Cars will crash on the road. Government in America at every level will disintegrate. Families will be torn apart. In the unprecedented turmoil, our nation will be vulnerable for our enemies to seize the moment and attack us. There will be mass chaos, confusion, fear, grief, despair, anger, threats, danger… judgment.

Anne pointed out that God’s judgment leading up to the calamities caused by the Rapture would probably not come in the form of a nuclear strike or an ISIS terror attack. Rather, it is most likely to be like the judgment of God described in Romans 1 where it speaks of God backing away and lowering His hedge of protection and allowing evil to multiply.

  • When you see how many so called christians are buying into same sex marraige, and not standing against abortion,and all the empty church seats , do you really think there will be that many true christians. If you ask most people if they are going to heaven the reply is usually yes.But when the judgement comes how many will here the words " I never new you"

  • To know one is a true child of God, Christian, believing in Jesus Christ in a trusting relationship is required. Repentance is taught, and a thirst to know God better through constant study helps the believer to become strong.
    But Romans 10:9 perhaps sums up receiving salvation in Christ best.
    Salvation is a free gift and cannot be earned or bought.
    I'm afraid many think they inherited Christianity, but there is no collective salvation.
    Each individual must come to Christ under the draw of The Holy Spirit.
    God made it so easy, yet mankind has complicated it.
    Receive Jesus Christ today.

  • The Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. I believe the rapture is going to be the coming together of Christ's Church on this earth to form God's kingdom as he promised and intended.

  • I have been talking to my family about rapture, I have been talking to them for years about getting saved and serving the Lord but it's fallen on deaf ears. Now my plan is at least they will know why, babies, mentally challenged and true Christian are gone! Most of my family think they are going to heaven without Jesus hmmm!
    Crying for my lost one

  • This is truly a sad time for those of us who know that Jesus' return is soon. Many people, including our loved ones will be left to wonder what happened. Even though, they still don't believe, I will still warn them of the coming wrath and that the Rapture will not be as aliens coming to pick us up. It wouldn't surprise me that the secular world will portray this as an event.
    Nothing in fact, would surprise me now with so much deception reaching this age so fast.
    I pray for Israel, I pray for those who are lost, I pray for our country and may God have mercy on us.
    I feel I am at the point now that more and more people are shutting out the truth, and I feel worn out from being able to reach out.
    Come quickly Lord Jesus

  • Anon who said "Rapture up the true Christians? The world will miss all ten of you."…

    …we won't miss you! You can have this screwed up world that you so dearly love. You and along with the murderers, thieves, liars, homosexuals, etc.

    Know this, anon, someday you WILL, there is NO quesiton, YOU will, on bended knee proclaim Jesus as Lord. I just pray you do it as a Christian and not on judgement day.

  • For family and friends you know will be left behind after the Rapture, our ministry has left a "left behind" message behind here on our website and other places all over the Internet. It's called "Jesus Came. What’s Next?" Our prayers are that the Lord will bless it to bring many people to a saving knowledge of Him.

  • I am going to put this information on a laminated card in my wallet. I will also leave one in my cubicle at work. I will also leave one at my home. Fortunately I am blessed in knowing my loved ones are Christians and won't need them but I will leave them to be found by whomever that was left behind.

    Friends at my work know I'm Christian and I tell them about the Rapture and things that will be happening in the ends times. I want them to have this knowledge so when, not if, I disappear from this Earth (unless the Lord calls me sooner) they will have some basic information and hopefully this will be a seed planted that will help lead them to seeking out the truth and accept the Lord.

    Including you too, Anon! I wasn't lashing out at you in my previous post but I was lashing out at the world we live in. Yes, we Christians WANT to leave it behind. And we pray sincerely you will find the Lord. Truly! I'm glad you know of the Rapture so when it happens perhaps you will realize what happened and will seek for salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord!

  • I am amazed at how many Christians sit and church and read God's word, and yet go against it as if their opinions matter more than Gods. Anne Graham Lotz also said, "The increasing spiritual and moral darkness in our world is making it more and more difficult for people without Jesus to see where they are going"…That is so true. The harbingers are there for those of us who have discernment from God. Environmental disasters, Social Disasters, Financial Disasters, Spiritual Disasters. These things are not just coincidences, or happening at random. These are the signs and the Harbingers of omens, warnings, and signs given to the faithful to warn us, of the Great and Awesome Day of the Lord.

  • Today our pastor asked those of us to stand up if we are experiencing some trying times, anxiety, illness, and stress…The people stood up and their families stood up, then the whole church stood up and the pastor said, "Let us pray for all those in need and guide us all through the days to come."

  • Frank, since you are reading here I am going to assume that God wants you to hear of Him and the truth of who He is. Romans 8:28King James Version (KJV)
    28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are
    the called according to his purpose.

    You are being given truth and life from the Creator. You are reading here for a reason– you are
    "called according to his purpose."
    Ask God to reveal Himself to you and His plan of salvation for you through His son Jesus Christ. It is all
    the "stuff" you will ever need in eternity. Listen to that still, small voice that is trying to reach you, Frank.
    God bless you.

  • Yes I Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ ! I also Believe in the Rapture !g
    I Believe that Those Who Truly Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and Sincerely try to Obey His Commandments, even though we sometimes Fail ! That if we are Truly in an Attitude of Change, as to our Failure to Obey at Times. ! If We Truly Repent of Those Failures and Accept The Lord’s Everlasting Forgiveness ! Those of Us who are Truly Sincere in These Things, Will Experience the Rapture and be Removed from the Terrible Days that will follow, ! As Certain as the Enduring Word of God’ Predicts !
