Televangelist claims Christians can 'speed up' Jesus' Second Coming if they give more money

 

(CHRISTIAN POST) – Louisiana televangelist Jesse Duplantis said at a recent televised fundraiser that Christians “can speed up the time” of Jesus' Second Coming by donating more money.

 

“I honestly believe this … the reason why Jesus hasn’t come is because people are not giving the way God told them to give,” he said, according to a clip shared on Twitter by the left-wing group Right Wing Watch.

 

Speaking at a fundraiser for Kenneth Copeland’s ministry, he continued, “When you understand this, you can speed up the time.”

 

Louisiana televangelist Jesse Duplantis said at a recent televised fundraiser that Christians “can speed up the time” of Jesus' Second Coming by donating more money.

 

“I honestly believe this … the reason why Jesus hasn’t come is because people are not giving the way God told them to give,” he said, according to a clip shared on Twitter by the left-wing group Right Wing Watch.

 

Speaking at a fundraiser for Kenneth Copeland’s ministry, he continued, “When you understand this, you can speed up the time.”

 

Duplantis, the pastor of Covenant Church in Destrehan, St. Charles Parish, a multi-millionaire who owns a private plane and has been criticized for his lavish lifestyle, added, “I realized that I will not move people emotionally to give, I’m gonna have people move according to the Word of God. What is God saying to you?”

 

Duplantis, 72, then urged people to give, saying, “God the Father would say, ‘Jesus, go get ‘em.’”

 

In one of his daily commentaries, Jim Denison, Ph.D., a cultural apologist, responded to the question: When will Jesus return?

 

After Jesus’ resurrection, He appeared to His disciples “over a period of 40 days and spoke to them about the Kingdom of God,” he wrote, referring to Acts 1:3. “He then promised them the Holy Spirit (v. 5). They knew that the coming of the Spirit and the coming of the Kingdom were related. So in response, they asked the question Christians have been asking ever since: ‘Are you at this time going to restore the Kingdom to Israel?’ (v. 6).

 

“Their question was logical but wrong. Calvin said, ‘There are as many errors in this question as words’ (Institutes 1.29).

 

“Jesus says, ‘It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority’ (v. 7). ‘Times or dates’ refers to specific dates as well as years. ‘Not for you’ refers to Jesus’ first and closest disciples: Peter, James, John, the others, and even Mary and his brothers.”

 

In 2018, Duplantis faced criticism for seeking donations to go toward the purchase of a $54 million Falcon 7X jet.

 

"You know I've owned three different jets in my life and used them and used them and just burning them up for the Lord," he said in a video appealing for funds on "This Week with Jesse."

 

"Now, some people believe that preachers shouldn't have jets. I really believe that preachers ought to go on every available voice, every available outlet, to get this gospel preached to the world," he added at the time.

 

Following the backlash, however, the preacher insisted that he never asked followers to donate toward the plane, but instead called on them to join him in believing that God would provide him with the new aircraft.

 

In a four-minute video posted on the ministry's website, Duplantis attempted to clarify his earlier remarks where he claimed that God told him to believe that He would provide a Falcon 7X and that he would not have to pay for it.

 

"First things first, I never raised money for the plane," Duplantis said. "I put it in our magazine and said, 'Believe in God with me.' There is a vast difference between 'Believe in God' and asking for money."

 

Duplantis said that he was told by God: "You don't need to raise money for this. This will just come."

 

"I have raised money for a lot of other things and there is nothing wrong with that because religious organizations do that," Duplantis said. "But just when He said this would 'just come,' little did I realize that people would pick this story up."

 

If YOUR In Business Of Selling Jesus You're In The Wrong Business

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully[a] will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

In the midst of hardships, we tend to feel our prayers and cries to God aren’t being heard because we may not see an immediate change in our situations. This is a misconception of how our relationship with God actually should be. We are to put our all our trust into God’s hands, after all, “God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything.” 1 John 3:20. And just because we do not see an immediate change doesn’t mean God never heard you, because He has!

 

The following 7 Bible verses are just a few words from God that reassure us that God’s timing is always perfect, even when we cannot see it!

 

1. He Is Patient- 2 Peter 3:8-9

“ But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

 

What we may comprehend as seeing a slow response is due to God not listening to us, we are not taking time to be patient. God is patient with us and we in return should be patient with him.

 

It is very easy to compare ourselves to others and wonder why something has come through for them but it has yet to happen for us. We need to understand that there is a purpose and reason for something not happening or not changing. I feel it is us that needs to be doing the changing, starting with being patient.

 

2. God Directs- Proverbs 16:9

“ In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”

 

We are all guilty of pre-planning out our future, sometimes it is good but many times it is not. When we create a long-term plan in our hearts, we then quickly find ourselves disappointed and even lost. But if we confide in the Lord and let Him bring us to where we need to be, there isn’t any room for these hurt feelings and the steps we took to get to these great moments in our lives are enjoyed throughout our journey.

 

3. His Timing- Ecclesiastes 3:1

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens”

 

God never promised us that our life on earth would be easy, but He did say that there is a time and season for everything. If you continue reading through verse 8 you will see how many things that we consider good end up countering with something we consider bad, but God has told us there is a purpose for it all. Verse 2-8 it reads, “ a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.”
