Evangelist says ‘evil’ part of ‘ultimate agenda‘
Samaritan’s Purse chief Franklin Graham, the evangelist son of preaching legend Billy Graham, says eventually ISIS will bow to Jesus.
In a Facebook posting Tuesday, he followed up on Monday’s warning that, “The storm is coming.”
He was lamenting the fact that when ISIS released a video of the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya, Muslim leaders were silent.
“Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians? Where is the universal condemnation by Muslim leaders around the world?” he wrote.
“We’d better take this warning seriously as these acts of terror will only spread throughout Europe and the United States. If this concerns you like it does me, share this,” he said.
On Tuesday, he said, “The evil of ISIS really shouldn’t shock us – it is fully in keeping with their ultimate agenda of hastening a final apocalypse.”
That a “final battle” will come is confirmed in the Bible, he said, and it “will result in the defeat of Satan and all those allied with him.”
He continued, “One thing is for sure – one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father.
His comments come amid controversy over the White House comment on the murders of the 21 Christians.
Obama’s condemnation of the violence failed to mention the victims were captured because they were Christian, and they were killed because of their faith.
Instead, the president’s statement called then “Egyptian citizens.”
“This heinous act once again underscores the urgent need for a political resolution to the conflict in Libya, the continuation of which only benefits terrorist groups, including [ISIS],” the statement said.
Graham, who also heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association started by his father, has been making statements of late that don’t align with politically correct thought.
