During the The Jim Bakker Show on August 12, Jim Bakker and self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs both claimed to have prophesied the September 11th terrorist attacks. Jacobs added that her Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, which is composed of leaders of the New Apostolic Reformation, and colleague Mike Bickle also prophesied the attacks. Bickle, the founder and director of the International House of Prayer, was an emcee and organizer of Rick Perry’s The Response prayer rally (which Jacobs also endorsed). He previously prophesied that Oprah Winfrey is the harbinger of the Antichrist.
Bakker, the founder of PTL Club who is best known for his financial and sex scandals, said that he prophesied the September 11th terrorist attacks in 1999 and claimed that the attacks were God’s judgment on America because God “let his hand down of protection for those planes to come in to hit those buildings.”
