Pastor Says Jesus Hasn't Returned Because People Haven't Donated Enough Cash

Pastor Says Jesus Hasn't Returned Because People Haven't Donated Enough Cash

A pastor has claimed that Jesus hasn't returned to Earth because people aren't donating enough cash to their churches.

Evangelical pastor Jesse Duplantis was speaking during a four-day event entitled Victorython, which aired on the Victory channel when he made the claim.

Duplantis told viewers that if congregations handed over more cash they could 'speed up' Jesus' return.


He said: "I honestly believe this - the reason why Jesus hasn't come is because people are not giving the way God told them to give."

Duplantis then urged people to pick up their phones and call the number on screen where they could donate cash.

He added: "I really believe this, if people would call this number, and put this Victory all over the world, every available voice, every available outlet - the Father would say, 'Jesus, go get 'em'.

"Because you see, He wants to see us as much as we want to see Him. Do you see what I'm saying?

"And what is hindering all these things is because people are not doing - in the financial realm, because we're living in an economic world - what God's called them to do. You know? He's called us to do that.

"I don't have a problem with giving, I don't have a problem with receiving - it doesn't make any difference, I just made up my mind, I want Jesus to come."

Elsewhere in the show he bragged he was a multi-millionaire, which is surely marvelous news for believers such as him, as it means he'll be able to hand over all that money and get Jesus back down to Earth even quicker, right?


He also joked about owning a jet which he would hand over 'the day after the rapture'.

The clip, which has been shared on Twitter, has caused quite a stir with some people shocked at the pastor's words.

Responding to the clip, one person wrote: "Right now I'm embarrassed not just because of what he said but because there are people who will actually believe it."


While another said: "These people have no shame, using the name of God to make money off of poor people, ignorant people, elderly people."
