TV evangelist and convicted felon Jim Bakker went on an angry rant on Oct. 13 against those who have pointed out that his prophecies have not come true.
Bakker went to prison in 1989 for defrauding his followers of $158 million, noted the New York Daily News in August.
During his recent fitful rage, Bakker warned his critics that God would take revenge on them because he (Bakker) is a prophet, notes Right Wing Watch:
When God says something to you, you don’t always know the exact time it’s going to happen. And stop beating up the prophets because God says, “Woe unto you when you beat up on the prophets!”
God is speaking to his people… The only ones who probably aren’t talking to God these days are mean people in America, people who just are anti-Christ.
If you don’t want to hear it, just shut me off. Especially you folks that monitor me every day to try to destroy me. Just go away. You don’t have to be there, you don’t have to hear it.
But one day, you’re going to shake your fist at God’s face and you’re going to say, “God, why didn’t you warn me?” And He’s going say, “You sat there and you made fun of Jim Bakker all those years. I warned you, but you didn’t listen.”
