False Teacher Jim Bakker Wants To Sell You Freeze-Dried Food So You Can Survive The Coming Apocalypse

The main mission of “The Jim Bakker Show” – broadcast from a Christian compound deep in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri – appears to be to sell you fuel-less generators, doomsday apocalypse guidebooks and freeze-dried food with a shelf-life of up to 30 years.

Three decades after his PTL empire near Charlotte crumbled amid financial and sex scandals, Jim Bakker is back on TV with a different, darker message: The Apocalypse is coming and you better get ready.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Former Prosperity Gospel shill Jim Bakker wants you to prepare for the coming apocalypse by purchasing his freeze-dried survival packages. Funny thing,though, he mentions nothing about the Rapture of the Church which comes well before the Battle of Armageddon. Not much money to be made there because all you have to do to “prepare” for that is to be born again. Back in the 1980’s, Bakker became a millionaire selling the lie of the Prosperity Gospel, and he has become a millionaire again selling the lie of “preparing” to face Antichrist in the time of Jacob’s trouble by purchasing his freeze dried gruel. People loved to be fooled, don’t they? 

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3,4 (KJV)

Ready to be judged by God, sure. But the main mission of “The Jim Bakker Show” – broadcast from a Christian compound deep in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri – appears to be to sell you fuel-less generators, doomsday guidebooks and freeze-dried food with a shelf-life of up to 30 years.

Bakker, whose co-host is second wife Lori, says stocking up on such survivalist merchandise could keep you alive amid the catastrophes – earthquakes, hurricanes, war, famine – that some Christians believe are signs that End Times are near.

“Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive, ah, ah, ah, ah,” Bakker’s daughter, Tammy Sue, now 47, sang on one show as her dad promoted buckets of long-lasting emergency food. That day’s “Staying Alive” special: Ten buckets, with 2,410 servings, for a $600 donation plus shipping.

“We are in the final days” is Bakker’s refrain as he points a warning finger at Hurricanes Harvey and Maria and to recent talk of nuclear war with North Korea.

Now 78, with a white beard, Bakker is no longer the sunny, baby-faced preacher who co-hosted “The PTL Club” in the 1970s and ’80s with then-wife Tammy. She did the singing back then, often while shedding happy, mascara-tinged tears about Jesus.

Together, Jim and Tammy built Heritage USA, a 2,300-acre Christian theme park and resort that drew nearly 6 million visitors at its peak in 1986. Their flock came to the Fort Mill, S.C., campus to splash in the water park, pray in a stone-faced Upper Room meant to suggest the site of Jesus’ Last Supper, and cheer on televangelism’s most famous couple as they taped their TV talk show.

PTL was short for “Praise the Lord,” though critics of the Bakkers’ opulent lifestyle – they bought vacation homes, high-priced cars, even an air-conditioning unit for their doghouse – suggested it should stand for “Pass the Loot.”

Everything came tumbling down in 1987, amid revelations that Bakker had had a 15-minute tryst and paid hush money to a young church secretary named Jessica Hahn. He later served in federal prison for nearly five years for PTL-related fraud.

More than 30 years after the fall of PTL, public records indicate that unpaid IRS tax liens against Bakker or against him and Tammy, who died in 2007, still add up to at least $5.5 million.

v

The question now: Has Bakker repented and found a genuine calling to help Christians prepare for the end times forecast in the Bible? Or is he stoking 21st-century fears – terrorism, climate change, war – to make money?

Answer that at your own risk, Bakker tells viewers:

“One day you’re going to shake your fist in God’s face and you’re going to say, ‘God, why didn’t you warn me?’ He’s going to say, ‘You sat there and you made fun of Jim Bakker all those years. I warned you. But you didn’t listen.’ 

John Wigger, author of a new book called “PTL: The Rise and Fall of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Evangelical Empire,” argues that the savvy Bakker is changing with the times to tap into new opportunities.

“The Prosperity Gospel, with all its glitz and money, fit the culture of the 1980s and Jim found that was a very successful component of his message,” said Wigger, a professor of history at the University of Missouri. “In this post-9/11 era, he’s found that the Apocalypse and survivalism make for a very compelling message that will also gain him an audience.” source

In 2012, We Warned You Of The Coming Second American Civil War, In 2022 It’s Now Arrived. We Here At NTEB Have Picked A Side, Have You?

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Here at NTEB, we’ve picked a side in this second American Civil War, and the side that we choose to fight on is the side preaching and teaching the Kingdom of God.

America is now a nation where, whatever party is in power, they use that power to control and marginalize the other side. This has always been done, of course, but never so nakedly and open as it is here in 2022. During the Obama years, history records him as the first ‘post-American president’, and through him were sown the seeds for the America’s second civil war. Our nation is irretrievably ripped down the middle, with no hope of either side ever coming to a reconciliation unless it is formed under Antichrist.

“And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.” Jeremiah 18:9,10 (KJB)

Of course, this split down the middle of America is not organic, it was placed there intentionally by the same New World Order operatives that installed the dementia-addled Joe Biden in the White House as the pretend president. When the FBI raided Donald Trump’s Florida residence, Mar-a-Lago earlier this week, it had very little to do with recovering some missing paperwork, and everything to do with sending a message. What’s the message? That the party in power will do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, and your ‘constitutional rights’ will be trampled and overridden to accomplish that purpose. If they were truly interested in justice, those same FBI agents would have already raided Hunter Biden’s residence and shown us what’s on that laptop. How he calls his dad, Joe Biden, “pedo peter” in private family messages. If the FBI has time to go through Melania Trump’s underwear drawer, they certainly have time to take a look at Hunter Biden’s laptop. But they won’t, because what they’d find there will implicate Joe Biden in massive financial wrongdoing and influence peddling. Do a Google search for “riots in America”, and all you will see are links related to January 6th and Trump supporters. The 6 months worth of 2020 riots waged by ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter which caused over $2 billion in damages almost never appear. Funny how that works, isn’t it?

Here at NTEB, we’ve picked a side in this Civil War, and the side that we choose to fight on is the side that is preaching and teaching the Kingdom of God. We reject the carnal weapons of conventional warfare, choosing instead the word of God with which to fight our battles. This is a war for the souls of men and women, a war obscured by the endless, relentless, 60-seconds-per-minute Breaking News!!! that is forced in our face all day every day. Right now Democrats are calling the shots, eventually the Republicans will regain power, but nothing changes except that things progressively get worse. God has no interest in making America ‘great again’, and in fact, looks like He left us to our own devices a while ago.

Look in your King James Bible as hard as you can, and you won’t find a single reference to the United States of America. Oh sure, you find some things that have some distant commonality, but nothing you can make a real case for. Possibly Ezekiel 19:6, or maybe Nahum 2:13, but you won’t find a peep coming out of Daniel or Revelation about America, and that’s where the real action is. So consider this article your PSA about staying the course in the end times, not getting pulled into a prefabricated domestic war that is meaningless when compared to eternity and the Judgment Seat of Christ.

Israel Defense Forces Announce The Start Of ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ After 200 Rocket Attacks By Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Is Hamas Next?

Published

The Israel Defense forces on Friday launched Operation Breaking Dawn in the Gaza Strip, following days of tensions in the wake of the arrest of the leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Judea and Samaria.

Israel announced the start of ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ to deal aggressively with terror threats and rocket attacks from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad which began in earnest yesterday. Over 200 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, with the IDF responding late into the night, seeing the death of 15 PIJ militants to date. The IDF has reportedly deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries to central Israel in anticipation of barrages and has called up 25,000 reserve troops.

“As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.” Isaiah 31:5 (KJB)

Meanwhile over in Tbilsli, Georgia, we see something called the Peace Cathedral, which houses places of worship for Muslims, Jews and Christians. It’s based on a similar model called the House of One with plans laid in 2011, and construction started in 2021 in Berlin. We rightly understand this to be the One World Religion of Chrislam, and will be led by Antichrist and the False Prophet during the time of Jacob’s trouble. What began with Rick Warren’s ‘Peace Plan’ 20 years ago, has come to stunning fruition under the work of Pope Francis, Mohamed bin Zayed and the Abraham Accords.

Israel launches ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ against Islamic Jihad in Gaza

BREAKING UPDATE: Rocket sirens sound in the southern part of Tel Aviv and the central cities of Rishon Lezion and Holon, for the first time since violence escalated between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group on Friday. source

FROM THE JEWISH NEWS SYNDICATE: Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in a statement that the goal of the operation was “the elimination of a concrete threat” against civilians, as well as the targeting of terrorists and their sponsors.

“Anyone who tries to harm Israel should know: We will find you,” the premier said.

A senior Israeli source was quoted by media as saying that the mission was initiated with a view to thwarting an imminent large-scale terrorist attack.

According to the IDF, an airstrike on Friday killed senior PIJ commander Tayseer Jabari, who replaced Baha Abu al-Ata as the head of the terrorist group in northern Gaza after the latter’s assassination by the Israeli military in 2019.

The IDF said that some 15 PIJ terrorists had been killed in initial strikes targeting anti-tank missile operators and snipers in Gaza.

Meanwhile, the military has declared a “special situation” throughout the home front and warned residents within an 80-kilometer (50-mile) radius of Gaza, including those living in Tel Aviv, that there was a risk of rocket attacks.

Palestinian terrorists indeed began firing projectiles towards Israeli civilian areas at approximately 21:30 local time, as sirens blared across the country. So far, since the operation began, 71 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza, 9 of which fell inside the Gaza strip, according to the IDF.

The IDF has reportedly deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries to central Israel in anticipation of barrages and has called up 25,000 reserve troops.

“We will not allow anyone to threaten or harm the citizens of Israel. Whoever tries to do so will get hurt,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said in reference to the ongoing military campaign. READ MORE

Prince Charles Opens The 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games With An Idol Of A Raging, Fiery Bull Prompting Comparisons To Baal Worship

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Baal-like ‘Raging Bull’ was so popular with people attending the Commonwealth Games that a crowdfunding campaign was set up to preserve it to be admired for future generations

One of the things I find most interesting about the idolatrous ‘raging bull’  is not only its close association with Baal worship, but the fact that Prince Charles was the man opening the games. If you recall, we’ve mentioned multiple times on our Prophecy News Podcast about Prince Charles calling for an unnamed man to be given trillions of dollars to wage a military-style campaign. Now he presiding over a massive 32-foot high idol of a fiery bull, what do we call that, progress?

“And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.” 1 Kings 18:26 (KJB)

Whatever happened to shows and ceremonies where people were happy, upbeat and optimistic? That seems to be now completely wiped from our collective memory. Everytime you turn around, you are assaulted with dark, menacing imagery that seems be be not only sending you hidden messages, but perhaps a harbinger of the arrival of something worse? Time is almost up, Christian, if you’re planning on doing something for the Lord, better get after it.

In the Bible, the bull is connected with Baal worship and idolatry from Babylon and Egypt

FROM ISRAEL 365 NEWS: The centerpiece of the opening ceremony of the 2022 commonwealth games was a 10-meter tall mechanical bull. Fifty people spent more than five months building the monstrosity dubbed “Raging Bull.” This stood in stark contrast to the games themselves, which were heavily promoted as “The Friendly Games.”

The dramatic display, directed by Steven Knight, had the bull led into the Stadium by dancers in a dramatic production with a politicized presentation of history, as described by Wales Online:

The bull is led into the Stadium by underpaid, overworked female chain-makers of the Industrial Revolution, trapped by their own circumstances as they produce the bonds that hold others in the slave trade. The women break free via a minimum wage strike of 1910. The bull itself breaks free because of its huge stature. Stella, the hero of the Opening Ceremony, calms it down by offering it love and light. The emotive section ends with the bull eventually moving towards mutual tolerance after it is riled up once again and cries in pain.

As an expression of this love, the female athletes gather around and embrace the bull.

A creepy element was added at the last minute when the names of the 21 victims killed in the 1974 Mulberry Bush and Tavern in the Town bombings by the Irish Republican Army were inscribed on its headpiece. The organizers failed to inform the families of the victims who expressed annoyment in the media.

The bull is massive, requiring a 17-ton vehicle to move it around the stadium. Due to its size, the bull cannot be stored away, so the organizers plan to dismantle it. But the bull has a devoted following, and a petition has been set up to save it.

The popular attraction for the creation could be rooted in the bull being one of the oldest forms of idolatry. When Moses delayed in coming down from Sinai, the Children of Israel resorted to creating a golden calf, a form of idolatry they had witnessed in Egypt. In ancient Egyptian religion, Apis was a sacred bull worshiped in the Memphis region and was later adopted by Alexander the Great. The Canaanites worshipped a bull as the depiction of the fertility god Baal. Jeroboam erected two golden bulls in the northern kingdom of Israel. READ MORE
