Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham
has warned that much like the decline of the
Babylonian empire close to 2,500 years ago,
America may also be staring down at its end,
unless it turns back to God.

“What’s the writing on the wall for America? As
a nation we are found lacking because of sin
and disobedience to God’s Holy Word. We have
not honored Him. If we don’t turn back to God,
I fear that our end will be near,” Graham wrote
on Facebook Sunday.

He noted that 2,500 year ago, present day Iraq
was known as the Babylonian empire, and
boasted one of the largest armies in the world
at the time.

“Its king, Belshazzar, was having a big party
drinking and boasting with his wives, his
mistresses, and his nobles,” Graham described,
referring to the account in the book of Daniel in
the Bible.

He added: “While they were partying, the hand
of God appeared and wrote a message on the
wall, terrifying everyone including King
Belshazzar. His face grew pale and his knees
went weak. Daniel is called in to interpret the
handwriting which says three things: ‘Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and
brought it to an end. Tekel: You have been
weighed on the scales and found wanting.
Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to
the Medes and Persians.'”

After Daniel warns Belshazzar that he is guilty
of worshiping false gods, the king is slain that
very night, and the kingdom is lost.

Graham has made several such warnings in the past, declaring at his Decision America Tour
that the U.S. is “being stripped of biblical

“Our country is going in the wrong direction.
And I think some of the politicians that are
running have tapped into the anger and the
frustration in this country. And I want
Christians to know that their vote does count
and we’ve taken God out of government, schools and everything else and we need to
get God back into it,” Graham said back in
February, urging people to vote in the
presidential elections.

The evangelical, who leads the Billy Graham
Evangelistic Association, has further warned
that news headlines suggest the world is
unraveling, and Jesus Christ is coming to “wipe
the slate clean.”

“While the United States is focused on its own
politics, the world is unraveling. The danger
signals are everywhere. Beheadings, rapes,
murders, bombings are taking place every day
across North Africa through the Middle East, all
the way to the borders of India,” Graham said.

Speaking about Jesus, he added: “One day He
is going to wipe the slate clean and ‘create new
heavens and a new earth: and the former shall
not be remembered, nor come into
mind,’ (Isaiah 65:17). For those who have
trusted His Son Jesus Christ by faith, there is an eternal future with Him to look forward to.
