Former Charlotte televangelist Jim Bakker and prosperity gospel preacher Lance Wallnau have teamed up to sell a gold-plated Trump ‘prayer coin’ for $45.
If I could speak with prosperity preacher and prover fraud Jim Bakker, I would want to thank him. I would thank him for once again proving that the Prosperity Gospel, in all its many forms, is nothing more than what you get when con artists and religionists have a baby. Jim Bakker’s latest offering, a gold-plated Trump coin that will give you special ‘access to God’ is right up there with Miracle Spring Water from Peter Popoff, the laughable ‘vow of faith‘ from Robert Tilton, all the way up to Paula White and her insane ‘Lazarus Seed‘ scam where you send her $1,144 so she can give you a ‘financial resurrection’.
“A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:30,31 (KJV)
If your church preaches the Prosperity Gospel you need to repent of that mess and leave immediately. All prosperity gospel churches like those of Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Paula White, Joel Osteen and all the others are a false gospel. Instead of buying Jim Bakker’s pathetically opportunistic gold-plated Trump coin, why don’t you go give that $45 to your churches mission fund, or buy some gospel tracts to reach the lost, or go buy a homeless person a hot meal and show then the love of Christ.
“And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.” Acts 8:18-22 (KJV)
I believe that Donald Trump was specifically chosen by God, as Daniel says all rulers are, to accomplish His will in these last days concerning Israel. President Trump has done some amazing things for the Jews and Israel. But when you start making gold coins, or golden calves, you have erected an idol and that’s an abomination before the Lord. Jim Bakker needs to get saved and preach the actual gospel. Pray for his salvation.
Former Charlotte Televangelist Jim Bakker Selling $45 Trump Coin As ‘Point of Contact With God’
FROM CHARLOTTE STORIES: The coin includes images of Donald Trump and Ancient King Cyrus on the front, with a crest of words reading; “The 70 Year Decree Cyrus – Trump Proclamation”. A Bible passage in Isaiah 45:1 and “The 45th President” are engraved on the back.
Some have compared Donald Trump to King Cyrus after he moved the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. People also point out that Donald Trump is the 45th President, and that in Isaiah 45:4, it is written about Cyrus that God will “bestow on you a title of honor, though you do not acknowledge me”, some say that Trump, likewise has been given a title of honor without ever truly acknowledging God.
“When I asked the Lord, ‘Why the coin?’ he said ‘Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact,’” Wallnau told Bakker on his show.
The coin is being advertised and sold through former Charlotte televangelist Jim Bakker’s ‘The Jim Bakker Show’.
Bakker is most well known for scamming investors out of millions of dollars to build Heritage USA, a sprawling 2,300-acre tv broadcasting, conference, and amusement park complex in Fort Mill.
The complex first opened in 1978, and by 1986 it was attracting nearly 6 million visitors annually and employing about 2,500 people from around the Charlotte region. Throughout most of the 80s, Jim Bakker was investigated on a slew of embezzlement, fraud, and rape charges.

In 1982 the FCC sent a detailed fraud report to the Justice Department. They decided not to press charges due to insufficient evidence. Bakker then used the controversy to raise even more funds from his audience, branding the investigation as a “witch-hunt”.
In 1988 he was arrested on 8 counts of mail fraud, 15 counts of wire fraud and, 1 count of conspiracy.
A Charlotte jury found Bakker guilty on all 24 counts and he was sentenced to 45 years in federal prison and given a $500,000 fine. His prison sentence was reduced to 8 years in 1992. He was paroled in July of 1994, after serving almost 5 years in jail.

When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,832 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 14,000 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
