Last month, televangelist Jim Bakker predicted that September would see a financial meltdown, several natural disasters and some horrible event involving Pope Francis’ trip to America. He backed up his predictions by citing the work of Jonathan Cahn, who had brought his own September doomsday prophecy to Bakker’s program and others, including Glenn Beck’s and Pat Robertson’s.
During one of his September shows, Bakker pointed to another signal that something terrible would occur that month: God had told him to dress all in black, right down to his underwear.
“I went to get dressed and I pray about what I wear, I really do, I know I look stupid sometimes, but the last time God told me to wear a color was red, and what happened that day? The stock market crashed,” Bakker said. “Today, God said, ‘I want you to wear all black.’ Even my shoes are black. My underwear is black. My socks are black.”
When Bakker’s wife and co-host, Lori, complained such details were “TMI,” Bakker disagreed: “No, it is not too much information because when God says, ‘Get the sin out,’ He meant, ‘Get the sin out.’ When you take over your enemy, you are to destroy every part of the enemy. I am in mourning because people aren’t ready.”
