Evangelist Billy Graham died today at the age of 99. Just as his life had great significance for God’s kingdom, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to millions around the world, his death also has great significance, fulfilling a powerful prophecy given by Prophet Mark Chirona and Evangelist Benny Hinn.
In the 3-minute video shown below, Mark Chirona delivered this prophecy in 2012 while appearing as a guest on the Trinity broadcasting network. Mark Chironna is uniquely gifted to train, mobilize, and ignite transformation in God’s people. Here is the transcript from the video.
We are coming into perhaps the most significant day in church history. There are a number of things that are going to begin to converge. We talked about (the book of) Luke and the signs. There is going to be a convergence of the signs. With it there is going to be an acceleration and they are all going to overlap. When that happens, there is a company of people that have been hidden in God for a season but they are coming out of hiding and they are going to stand in the courts of Pharaoh. Like Moses did (Exodus 7-12) and Elijah did (1 Kings 18:20-40), they are going to challenge the spirits. They are going to challenge the powers of Egypt.
The earth is going to see a 21st century manifestation of the demonstration of the Spirit, not from one or two, but from a many membered body. God is going to have the church of His dreams. All of the institutionalizing that we have done to the church, all the things we have done to try to make it our thing instead of God’s thing, God has had the church under wraps for 2,000 years. Maybe that’s why there are 2,000 cubits between where this generation is and the ark because God wants a church that has been in hiding and prepared for power by severe testing, severe trial, severe tribulation in every single season and they feel like they are not going to be used and it is too late and it is all over. That is the company that is prepared for power.
They’ve been like John the Baptist in the wilderness eating locusts and wild honey, strange food. They have had to learn to glean from the word when they were just getting little pious platitudes from preachers all around the country. They are being weaned away from everything that is contradictory to the powerful truth of the word of God. That company is coming out of hiding. They are going to cross Jordan. They are going to move into a manifestation of power where there will not just be power on one or two, but there is going to be power on multiplied thousands and thousands.
As soon as Mark Chirona finished delivering that word, Evangelist Benny Hinn added this prophesy,
“The sign will be Billy Graham’s death. You are talking about a people in hiding, just like Elijah was in hiding, but when he came out, he challenged the prophets of Baal. And the Lord said to me in 1989, when Oral Roberts and Billy Graham go home, it will be the key, it will be the sign of the beginning of the greatest revival. Oral is home and Billy is about to go home, and when he does, I’m telling you, the whole Church, get ready.”
Mark Chirona and Benny Hinn aren’t the only ones who have seen this great revival coming. They are only confirming what prophets of previous generations saw and recorded in the Bible. Here’s how Isaiah described it.
1 “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
2 “For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you
And His glory will appear upon you.
3 “Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
4 “Lift up your eyes round about and see; they all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms.
5 “Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will thrill and rejoice; because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you. (Isaiah 60:1-5)
Here’s how the prophet Amos described it.
“Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “When the plowman will overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; when the mountains will drip sweet wine and all the hills will be dissolved. (Amos 9:13)
The Lord Jesus also prophesied about it in the parable of the wheat and tares (Matthew 13:24-30).
Just as the natural harvest season is the time when every seed sown comes to maturity, the same is happening now in the spiritual realm. Every seed sown through the generations of history is now coming to maturity. The sons of darkness are coming to maturity at the same time that the sons of light are coming to maturity.
Billy Graham’s death signifies the days of Church as we have known it are over. We have officially entered the harvest season, the days of Elijah, the days of the greatest revival in history.
