"Simeon, Billy Graham and September"

We haven't heard much news about Billy Graham in the last six months or so, but he was "very weak" at the beginning of the year. He turns 97 November 7th. He and his family have done so much for Christianity that I believe his death could be an important marker re the rapture and last days in the same way Simeon got to see the Messiah before he died:

It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:

“Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.” Luke 2:26-32
