The Fear Continues

BND: Televangelist Jim Bakker calls his Missouri cabins the safest spot for the Apocalypse

BY KAITLYN SCHWERS

Televangelist Jim Bakker suggests that if you want to survive the end of days, the best thing you could do is buy one of his cabins in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. And while you’re at it, be sure to pick up six 28-ounce “Extreme Survival Warfare” water bottles for $150…

St. Paul dealt with similar alarmists in his 2nd letter to the church at Thessalonica.

1Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, 2not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come.
— 2 Thessalonians 2

Bakker’s activities are not identical to the ones St. Paul rebuked here, but the harm done is the same. It is to remove people from their confidence in Jesus, and to throw them into despair. This is a tactic worthy of Sun Tsu, who wrote The Art of War. The most successful general is the one who persuades his enemy to give up without a fight.

So Mr. Bakker, you are telling us we need to be afraid of what men might do. Is that what Jesus would advise?

4“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. 5But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.
– Luke 12:4-5

Let’s stand with Jesus, take up the full armor of God, and engage the enemy, instead of hoarding survival food and hiding under a rock.

What’s the worst that could happen? We might die?

If you were born the chances of your death are 100%!

Food for thought.

  4. I couldn’t agree more doctor. I’ll spare everyone my usual rant about “The Foursquare Church of Signs and Serpents Rising”. In some parts of the country this replaces movies. They compete with each other for the worst theology.

    “Good” theology is what the audience pays for. That involves telling them what they wish to hear. Just like Mc Donald’s. In and out, altar call, ka-ching, and you’re off to the casino.

    In the 1980s the combined scandals of the Bakkers and Swaggarts caused the conservative Christian voice to be exiled from the public square until now. This is very harmful for our causes like pro life. These men became a caricature of corruption that has been used against the church ever since.

  8. So it’s simply fear and fear mongering?hmmm. Guess Noah was wrong to prepare an ark. Guess Lot was wrong to leave Cedom and Amorrah. Guess YHVH was wrong to provide a place for Elijah for 3.5 years where he was fed by ravens,, living in a cave by a brook. All I guess I’m saying is that IT’S NOT WRONG TO PREPARE. No we don’t do so out of fear, we know YHVH is supreme above all, His arm is not shortened that He cannot deliver, but if one searches the scriptures one finds plenty of “preparedness”. The other side of the coin, is to not prepare due to indolence, misguided belief that one doesn’t have to because YHVH will take care of it – after all He could just send manna, make water gush from a rock, etc.

    • How can “survival food” enable one to survive THE APOCALYPSE? Apocalypse, by definition, is the destruction and end of the world. Inquiring minds want to know.

      No disrespect, but you really need to be less gullible.

      gitardood, most of us make some preparation for troubles that might come. My area just endured a winter hurricane. Just be careful what you fear. The only legitimate fear is fear of the Lord, and it can provide relief from other fears. Indolence? No, that would be a big mistake. I’m urging that we all put on the whole armor of God, and take the fight to the enemy. I can’t know Jim Bakker’s heart, but it looks to me as if he is spinning up near lethal doses of fear, and using them to profiteer off those he frightened. Also, we should pray for Jim Bakker. He is a human being, and God loves him, too.

  9. There is an effort by EVERY government on Earth to build shelter for the battle of Armageddon. Many people also have build underground, or in mountain type shelters for the same reason. Do they REALLY think God couldn’t find them there?

    • “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
      –Revelation 6:15-17.

      I’m all for “stocking up” (buying in Bulk) which I began doing over a decade before I ever heard the words “PREPPING” & “PREPPERS” &/or what stunts the NWO might pull at any given time; even spontaneous “Trucker Strikes” could cause a lack of supplies in grocery stores, etc.

      The weeks-long fearmongering by TV-Weathermen at the first sign of any Atlantic hurricane coming off the coast of Africa rivals that of any “Doomsday Preacher,” lol, & stores empty out big time every time that happens.

      The older you get &/or due to health problems, frequent grocery store visits become a royal pain. So buy more = less visits. You’ll also pay less in the long run.

      So I’m all for “preparing” due to WISDOM, not FEAR.

      And any wilfully-instigated “disasters” or “terrorist events” or wars or “economic crashes,” etc. by the NWO/JWO is not necessarily the same thing as the Biblical Apocalypse. Their dirty deeds will no doubt help to bring it on &/or they may attempt a “fake version” of it first (before the REAL biblical version) in order to dupe Christians.

      Zechariah ch.14 equates the “DAY OF THE LORD” with the final battle over Jerusalem:
      https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zechariah+14&version=NKJV
      And, of course, the Tribulation period precedes the “Day of the Lord.”

      Zechariah 14 aligns with Revelation 16 re the “great day of God Almighty” & “the great city”:

      “13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

      “14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
      […]
      “16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. [huge Valley of Megiddo approx. 100-150 miles north of Jerusalem]
      […]
      “19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.”

      As for Bakker, I think REAL ESTATE investment is more the name of his game & he uses “End Times” as the Selling Point.

      What’s the name of his prior “real estate” project there in Branson, “Morning Star”(?) homes & condos. I forget the name, as it’s been at least 10 years since I’ve seen his show on TV. And prior to, or around the same time as that, I think he was involved in another “real estate” project with some other guys (Rick Joyner?) in another state, NC(?), called “Heritage City” or something similar (but don’t “quote me” as it’s been a long time).

      The only good reason to live underground these days is the increasing proliferation of EM radiation. The earth is a natural barrier from it if your ceiling is at least 3-4 feet below the surface.

      If Bakker’s latest Doomsday REAL ESTATE “cabins” guaranteed No Smart Meters, No Cell Towers, No 5G, No WiFi, No Cellphones, etc., I would consider it if I had the $$$; but no way I’d pay him $150 for water bottles! 🙂

      ANY developer anywhere who is awake to EMF proliferation & wise enough to look ahead & who could guarantee a “No EMF Zone,” could end up with a “full house” of buyers & renters because “EMF Refugees” are on the increase due to its degrading health effects.

      • Corrections re Jimbo Bakker: I saw folks over at CTH mention Jim Bakker as well, so I read up on his prior “real estate” projects:

        __The one in Branson was MorningSIDE, not MorningSTAR.

        __The one is SC (not NC) was Heritage USA (not Heritage City), & it was a “theme park” but with only ONE 500-room hotel even though he had sold “tens of thousands of memberships” but he never got around to building more hotels to accommodate those memberships. Heritage USA was part of his problems that took him down, so it was an older “venture” than what I had thought.

        __The Wiki entry for Jim Boy (now 78!) has over 50 article references/links at the bottom which pretty much covers his entire life.

  14. I heartedly agree that Jim Bakker is a charlatan. One of my closest friends thinks he walks on water though. We discuss this a lot. I also have friends that think C.S. Lewis is close to a devine human being. I disagree with that also.

    — gitardood — Preparing for ”seven years of famine”, having a plan if you have to evacuate your home, having a tornado shelter, etc. is common sense. Just do not go broke doing it and Bakker’s products are pricey. One of the evening news channels reported last summer that during the forest fires in California, they found at least two places someone had stored a large cache of food, etc. Of course, it was ruined by the fire. I chuckle every time I hear about those who have caves in mountains, thinking this will protect them. When this old earth starts to shake, rattle and roll, I for one prefer to be above ground. Just think about what is happening in Hawaii, as I write this. How do you prepare for a lava flow that is 2000 degrees. Our faith is Jesus Christ is the only thing that is important.

    Mr. Bakker is, indeed, an idiot beggar. He tells you that by ordering his dry food buckets, that you help save babies. To be honest, just how many babies can Bakker save….20…30? My point here is that by listening to this Judas-Goat-Tare, you put yourself in danger of losing your soul. So while Jimbo claims to save 20 babies, he has (possibly) destroyed millions of souls with his teachings.
    Judgment begins at the pulpit. And if there’s one food-product that Bakker WILL understand shortly……it’s TOAST, cuz he’s about to become exactly that.(ashes).
