Lamenting abortion and same-sex marriage, evangelist Franklin Graham on Wednesday urged thousands of Christians gathered near the Georgia Capitol to make their voices heard in this year’s elections, saying the consequences of inaction are dire.
“I don’t think we’re going to make it another election cycle if we don’t get God’s voice back in the political arena,” the reverend said after speaking to an estimated 4,500 people in Atlanta on a cold, blustery afternoon.
Graham has embarked on a 50-state “Decision America Tour.” Atlanta was stop No. 6.
“I want to get Christians to run for office at every level. The Christian voice needs to be heard,” he said.
Mr Graham is right in saying that America will be destroyed by God in the end for turning away from Bible truth. But what Franklin Graham does not realize is that what he will help create, by rallying Christians to rise up against this ‘tide of evil’ and get involved in politics, is the forming of the IMAGE OF THE BEAST. And what is the beast of Revelation 13 that the image is of? It is the Papal Church of Rome (a unity of church and state). AndAmerica is the ‘earth beast’ of Revelation 13. So therefore, for America to create the image of the Papacy, what needs to happen? Christians need to ‘rise up’ and take control of government, forming a church state union, just like the Papacy!
And this is exactly what is going on in America right now with the call for Christian Americans to ‘run for office at every level’. There are already many Catholics high up in American government. So once we have ‘evangelicals’ (who have already united with Rome) in place too, then the image will be created, and the mark of the beast will follow.
And remember – The earth beast of Revelation 13 (America) ‘speaks as a dragon’. In other words, it will speak and do the will of Rome and Satan! So it matters not who you vote for, and it matters not who takes control of government – America WILL speak and do the work of the dragon – Rome and Satan!
Revelation 13:11-17 …’And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth [AMERICA]; and he had two horns like a lamb [PROFESSING CHRISTIAN NATION], and he spake as a dragon [ACTS LIKE SATAN/ROME]. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast [PAPACY] before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men [SIGNS AND WONDERS TO COME], and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast [CHURCH-STATE UNION], which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak [ENACT LAWS], and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark [COMING SUNDAY LAW] in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.’
