According to Anne Graham Lotz, evangelist daughter of Billy Graham, the 9/11 attacks were a wake up call from Jesus, and a sign of the new world order to come with the return of Christ. She will be simulcasting this message to churches around the country on Sunday. Her website says:
Watch as a church fellowship, community group, or on your home computer. This evening of teaching messages by Anne Graham Lotz and Joel Rosenberg, knit together with authentic worship music led by Selah, we pray, will be used by God to wake up His people. Join us as we consider the times in which we live, refocus on Jesus as our Hope for the future, and ask God to re-ignite such an intense longing for His return that we live the rest of our lives with no regrets.
Nationwide Simulcast Times:
Lotz says about the attacks: “God uses horrific things to bring about his purpose. I do not believe those evil men were led by God. I believe it was a plot of evil. We live in a sinful world and there are a lot of things that happen as a result of that sin,” Lotz said.
“I want to pray for (those who lost loved ones), that God will bring comfort and peace and the hope that he can bring a redemptive purpose out of all of this,” she said.
Because the attacks signaled the end times for Lotz, she has spent the past decade with an increasingly urgent conviction to evangelize and spread the Christian message. She re-released her book as Expecting to See Jesus last month in honor of the upcoming anniversary.
One in five Christians expect that Jesus’ second coming will take place in their lifetimes, according to the Pew Forum.
“I’ve been convinced that 9/11 was our wakeup call. If that wouldn’t wake up the church, what would it take?” Lotz said. “We’re looking at the end. I have such a strong conviction and compulsion that I can’t not say it.”
