Storm Warning, by Billy Graham w/forward by Franklin Graham, 1st Edition-Hardback, May 11, 2010, 304 Pages, ISBN-13: 978-0849948138, $19.99
Whether viewed on television, read in contemporary headlines or heard over the radio, we live in unusual times. From national and global political unrest, to famines, wars and rumors of wars, to killer earth quakes, tsunamis and floods of biblical proportions. Such events prompt many to ask, what is going on?
Billy Graham finds answers in Scripture, Matthew 24 and the book of Revelation specifically. He shares his thoughts in this edition, unlike previous editions, on "one small but very significant part of the Revelation of Jesus Christ"—the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Two important themes in the book include "God brings storms to warn of impending doom for disobedience," and "God is our shelter in the time of storms...." (Isaiah 25: 1, 4)
Graham writes, "...the storm clouds are darker than they have ever been." Reading this well-known and beloved Evangelist at 91-years of age warning about little understood biblical events that relate to the end times, Apocalypse and Armageddon made me take notice.
Billy Graham and his son Franklin describe how current headlines mirror the Apostle John's prophetic biblical warnings. These storm images warn of coming judgments yet provide the "hope" and assurance that God remains in control.
First published in 1985 as Approaching Hoof beats, revised in 1992 as Storm Warning the 2010 edition combines the "witness of Scripture" with "events in our times" that specifically relate to the "four horsemen of the Apocalypse...and Armageddon."
Graham uses storm and wind analogies to illustrate the "beginning of sorrows" in the storm warnings that surround us. Learn why he believes "unrealistic faith in the power of prosperity" became America's God, or how social networking, the likes of Twitter and FaceBook, add to the "cult of self." What "winds of warning" have to do with moral leadership and moral change? And how to stand firm in the "winds of hope," when our world is battered by "winds of uncertainty, fear, and instability."
"The bible assures us that God will abolish evil when Christ returns," writes Graham. He continues, "There are winds of change ahead" that point to his soon return. He asks readers to remember that Christ is in control.
This easy-to-read account of end time events, the war between good and evil, and the "four horsemen of Apocalypse" focuses on faith in Christ, personal salvation and God's control. Graham offers hope and biblical wisdom for today's challenging problems," as he warns about the winds of change ahead and asks..."how will you respond."
