Franklin Graham warns Christians to ‘get ready and be prepared’ for coming ‘storm’
As chaos and evil rip through the United States and across the planet, the Reverend Franklin Graham is warning Christians to brace themselves for a “coming storm” and says that it feels like every demon in hell has been unleashed upon us.
Graham claims that churches and ministries are being targeted by the left and that they risk being canceled. He believes Christian ministries could have their data and bank accounts seized.
The reverend serves as the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and head of Samaritan’s Purse. According to the Christian Post, he rang the alarm during his keynote speech Monday evening at the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Orlando, Florida.
“I believe there is a coming storm that we all need to be ready for. The world has deteriorated so quickly. It seems like every demon in Hell has been turned loose. We cannot be deceived and we can’t be fooled. We need to get ready and be prepared.” Graham proclaimed to an audience of about 2,000 attendees.
It was great to be in Orlando to share with those at the @NRBConvention tonight! My father @BillyGraham used radio and television to reach as many people as he could with the Gospel of Jesus Christ—and we’re still doing that today. #NRB2023 pic.twitter.com/MrbmiQNbFK

Graham also said that believers in the United States are “living in a cancel culture that wants to destroy Christian organizations,” adding that “we cannot back up, we can’t retreat, don’t apologize for the Gospel — just declare it, just preach it.”
“Who owns the [data] cloud?” he asked attendees. “Amazon.”
“They want us to shut our mouths, they don’t want to hear from us. If you’re not going to preach the Gospel, you don’t have anything to worry about,” he continued.
“If you’re not going to talk about sin, you’re not going to have anything to worry about; but if you’re going to proclaim the Gospel, they’re going to try to shut you up,” Graham asserted.
Referring to Matthew 8: 23-27, when Jesus and his followers were in a boat on the Sea of Galilee that was being rocked by the wind and waves, Graham noted that Jesus’ followers asked, “What kind of man is this that can control the wind and waves?”
He pointed out that Jesus’ followers “feared for their life” in those moments, they felt “they had no way out,” according to Fox News.
Graham alluded to the left’s woke LGBTQ agenda as the driving force behind the effort to cancel Christians. Among the examples he cited was the National Committee for Religious Freedom, founded by a former Kansas senator and governor, Sam Brownback, which had its Chase bank accounts closed without warning last October.
“It seems like every demon in hell has been turned loose.”

He is admonishing Christians to have their own ways of storing their data that isn’t vulnerable to the left. Graham told his listeners that Samaritan’s Purse built its own data center in Colorado, so it could keep operating without worrying about being censored or canceled.
“We built it big enough so that we can help other organizations if they want to store their data there, too,” Graham remarked.
He warned that large corporations such as Amazon “own the cloud” and can cancel service abruptly. When he asked how many organizations at the convention use Amazon Web Services, hands shot up throughout the crowd.
“If you can’t store your data and you can’t retrieve your data, your organization is not going to last much longer,” he said.
“Just don’t sit there on your hands and let the storm hit. And then have this look on your face like I didn’t know that was coming. I didn’t see that coming. You’d better see it coming. The world hates us, and Jesus told us the world hated me first and they’re gonna hate you,” Graham warned the audience. “If you stand for Christ, the world hates you.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) was also in attendance and gave remarks before the Christian media and ministries gathering.
“Had a great discussion at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention on the importance of supporting families, protecting children, and defending religious liberty,” DeSantis posted to Facebook following the event.
Last night it was good to spend a few minutes with Florida @GovRonDeSantis before we were both to speak at the @NRBConvention in Orlando. I appreciate the Governor’s clear voice and that he takes a stand against the evil that is trying to overtake our culture. pic.twitter.com/qw4g6b0a6h
