Anne Graham Lotz has suggested there might be a deep significance attached to her battle against breast cancer, as it could be a warning sign that Israel is in danger of suffering a fatal attack.
Lotz reasoned on her website Wednesday that she has long thought of herself and the modern state of Israel as “entwined,” given that both are 70 years old, with the latter having been established in 1948.
The evangelist and author said she’s questioning whether “there is more to my cancer at the age of 70 than just a random coincidence.”
“In the Bible, God often had His spokespersons live out the message He gave them …before they delivered the message to the people,” she said.
“Hosea was instructed to marry a woman who then became unfaithful to him as he lived out in a very personal way the broken heart of God over unfaithful Israel,” Lotz said of one of her examples.
“Jeremiah was told to purchase a linen belt, wear it, bury it, then dig it up when it was ruined and useless to live out a demonstration that God had bound Jerusalem to Himself, but she would not listen to Him so He would ruin her and render her useless.”
Lotz noted that she was born not only in the same year, but one week to the day of Israel’s establishment in May 1948.
“Could it be that God has given me a message for her that I am living out in my own experience?” she wondered.
“Just as my cancer is a potentially fatal disease, is Israel also in danger of being attacked in a potentially fatal way? Just as my cancer struck suddenly and unexpectedly through no fault of my own, will Israel also be struck by her enemies suddenly and unexpectedly through no fault of her own?”
