Jim Bakker: God will smite the people ‘who made fun of me all those years’

End Times enthusiast and televangelist Jim Bakker says a lot of nutty things. For example: One of his selling points for his Apocalypse-ready food buckets is that they’ll prevent you from eating your neighbors; He once declared that people who dare to criticize President Trump have the “spirit of the Antichrist“; He claimed that the victims of the Manchester bombing invited their fate by mocking God … and the list goes on.

Thanks to outlets like Right Wing Watch, Bakker’s greatest hits are highlighted and exposed on a regular basis, and the 77-year-old televangelist is taking notice. On his TV program this Friday, he had a message for people who dare to mock his role as a “prophet,” warning them that they’ll have to answer to God.

“Stop beating up the prophets because God says, ‘Woe unto you when you beat up on the prophets.'” Bakker said.

“God is speaking to his people,” he continued. “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,” Baker said. “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 in 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.'”
