On Sunday I preached from Jeremiah 29, when the prophet Jeremiah sends a letter to the Jewish exiles in Babylon. In the letter, he warns them about listening to the wrong voices. Some so-called prophets were claiming to have words from the Lord. But they were false.
Today many voices abound in our culture. To make it more confusing, numerous Christians claim to have revelations, visions, and advice. Just because someone says they hear from the Lord or speak for him does not mean that I take them seriously. Anne Graham Lotz, however, is one lady that I respect. She is a faithful student of God's Word, an accurate Bible teacher, and an intercessor with integrity.
Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of infamous evangelist Billy Graham, recently issued a "distress call for prayer."
Anne writes, "In these days of desperation and confusion, hopelessness and helplessness, when mountains are collapsing, nations are warring, people are rioting, the earth is quaking, and the enemy is threatening, it’s time to cry out to the Lord! Now!
The nine days between the day of the Ascension of Jesus and the Day of Pentecost have Biblically and traditionally been days of prayer and fasting for an outpouring of God’s Spirit. This year those days fall on May 15-23. On each of those 9 days, join Anne Graham Lotz and thousands of other followers of Jesus Christ, as together we implore God to save us from our distress. Before Jesus comes and judgment falls."
