In a post to his Facebook page this Monday, evangelist Franklin Graham said that unusually hard summers and winters are not necessarily because of climate change, but because of God’s vengeance, and people concerned about climate change are forgetting that souls may see unusually harsh conditions if they don’t get their priorities straight.
“Climate change is nothing new—the Bible records it over 4,000 years ago,” Graham wrote. “God brought His judgment on the wickedness and evil that had overtaken the world through a great flood.”
“It rained for 40 days and 40 nights and springs burst forth with water, flooding the entire earth and destroying all mankind—except for one man, Noah, who the Lord found righteous, and his family,” he continued. “Another example of climate change was in Egypt after Joseph‘s dream, there were seven fat years of plenty and seven slim years of drought and famine, not just in Egypt but also in the known world around them.”
Graham cited a comment from UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who said that it’s “one minute to midnight” before the effects of climate change before irreversible. Graham contends that time is running out, but it’s running out on “God’s clock.”
“…He will bring judgment on those who have rejected Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. I’m often asked if we are getting close to the return of Jesus Christ. No man knows the day or the hour, but I believe we are getting close. You’d better be ready.”
