Jim Bakker (PTL club) says god showed him 9/11 in 1999....
May 2006 be the most blessed and joyful year you have ever had! Thank you for your faithful love and friendship. This last year has been very eventful, challenging and the year included great blessings and sorrow!

The worst storms have exploded upon the World with great vengeance and violence! Around a quarter of a million people were killed as a wall of water hit their homeland. In the United States we experienced the most powerful and destructive hurricanes in our history!

When God showed me the terrorism and bombings in New York and Washington DC of 911, which I shared at the Rick Joyner Prophetic conference on New Years Eve 1999, He also showed me 30 other things which were going to happen in the future. One of which was "death by water!" I did not fully understand what that meant until all these storms began to hit.

let me say though that I am not making fun of christians in general (I am one thank you), but this guy is doing the same thing he used to (read his blog and check out the offers).

Now I am all for preachers spreading the word, et al - but when you say you know things and then want to charge people to learn it makes me wonder. Would be like St John saying - hey, I know some serious crap going down and wrote revelation - but I won't put the info on the web for free cause me making money off of it is more important than you rading it (Now - to play fair, one could say that raising money allows you to reach even more people with the important message and so on - to me though I would say find other ways to raise it).

1. Doesn't that make Bakker someone who aided and abetted terrorists?
I mean, if he knew about the terrorist plots two years before the fact and said nothing to the authorities....

2. I didn't realize God read "Tarot Cards". . .

8. If you're an old testament person
it says that you're not to do psychic things and stay away from them, but than in the New Testament on back it says that when the end gets closer your daughters will have prophecies and the like. If he really knew things and was confident he wouldn't hide behind money. So basically I'm calling his bluff.

3. I agree
At least Pat Robertson doesn't make you pay a fee for his "info." It's like with Sylvia Browne and these other people who make you pay for info and stuff. I can sense things and I never ask for money when people ask me for advice. Why? Things change and I'd feel like I was ripping someone off. It's not fair and what if I was wrong? They'd want their money back and it'd be a waste of everyone's time.

10. Guess his "God" forgot to show him that he would go to jail
all those years ago, huh? Air condidtioned dog kennels from donors money was NOT one of his "God's" priorities, but is was one of Jim's.

His type, the Swaggart's of the world, make me want to :puke:

16. And way back when Reagan become POSUS, I also had some
Misgivings? Howabout some genuine grave doubts on the future? The foreign policy was ugly then, but now it is a Frankenstien monster that includes domestic spies on US citizens.

Hello, America. The democracy that you think you support and the one you think supports you is bogus. You can be spied on at the whim of dear leader, disappeared and held without any rights. No charges. No jury of your peers. Nothing.

And this is based on whatever National Security claims cannot be disclosed because the black mail element would destroy our National Security. (Note to NAS: Please find Osamma. IF that happens, you might be worth the liberty sellout.)

Republicans are not nice people. That doesnt mean that they cant pretend to be civil in public, but the current crop is pure evil.
