Anne Graham Lotz Says This Could Be the 'Last Great Awakening'

Author and evangelist Anne Graham Lotz raised the idea in a recent blog post that the Asbury revival could be a sign of Jesus' return.

The daughter of the late Billy Graham, Lotz quoted the New Testament's James 5:7:

"Therefore, be patient...until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain."

Lotz suggested this passage of scripture could help answer the question that many people, including the mainstream media who have covered the new revival, are asking—What was going on at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky?

She also included a text from her husband's nephew, Dr. John-Paul Lotz. He was recently sent to Asbury by Regent University to observe the event.

Lotz shared a text she received from John-Paul describing what he saw.

"There was no leader, no rival, no envy, no pride, all humility, meekness, gentle hearts, stumbling sinners, tender students serving thousands of curious visitors in their love for mercy without knowing they are doing so! It is legit," he wrote.

"GenZ write-offs are graciously allowing us to peek in on this surprising work of God as they serve us like priests, unconsciously dragging us into the presence of the Lord through young, redeemed, romantic hearts for God. Christ is being honored, God is being glorified, the Spirit is at liberty."

"The real awkward cringe-worthy gawkers are the over forty's like myself who can't put down their phones. The Z's left theirs at home ..." John-Paul added.

Lord God, let it be so ... for the glory of Your great name, for the salvation of our nation, for the revival of Your people."
