A popular American preacher has made an interesting yet controversial revelation about why the second coming of Jesus Christ as written in the Bible has taken too long.
Evangelist Jesse Duplantis, a famous preacher from the Christian Evangelical Charismatic tradition based in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S, has been heard telling this to his congregation in a video which has surfaced online.
The man of God said giving freely to the church to build its financial strength is the only way that will speed up the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Evangelist Jesse Duplantis added during a live TV event “Victorython” on Victory Channel that he has been convinced that the reason Jesus has not returned yet is because people are not giving enough money to the church.
“I honestly believe this – the reason why Jesus hasn’t come is because people are not giving the way God told them to give.
“When you understand this, you can speed up the time,” the preacher said.
He went on to add that, “I really believe this, if people would call this number and put this victory all over the world, every available voice, every available outlet, God the Father would say, ‘Jesus, go get ’em.’ Because, you see, he wants to see us as much as we want to see him. … And so 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.
“So 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.”
