End Times: Are You Ready?

Will the world end this weekend? The Bible says not even the angels know the day or hour of Jesus’ return. But amid speculation that’s been around for centuries, there are certain timeless truths to which all Christians can cling.

First, we need to be sure we have put our trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. “The fact of the matter is… we are all a heartbeat away from eternity,” said Will Graham, grandson of Billy Graham, when asked about recent “doomsday” predictions.

“Whether you stand before God [tomorrow] or whether you stand before Him 50 years from now, is irrelevant in the scope of eternity,” Graham added. “The important thing isn’t when you stand before God; it’s where you stand with God.”

Our Internet evangelism site, PeaceWithGod.net, is a tool you can use to settle the question of your own salvation and to share with unbelieving friends and loved ones.

Also, through the years, both Billy and Franklin Graham have written and preached sound, Biblical messages about the Second Coming of Jesus. If you have questions, want to learn more or would like to pass along a link to someone you love, please use the resources on this page and across the site.
