Multi-Millionaire evangelical pastor Jesse Duplantis may have some insight into Jesus’ second coming. According to the 72 year old Christ’s return is being held up by people not donating enough money.

During his four-day event entitled Victorython Duplantis made the bold claim telling viewers that if congregations handed over more cash they could “speed up” the return of the messiah.

He said, “I really believe that if people would call this number [to donate]… the father would say, ‘Jesus go get ’em’. He wants to see us as much as we want to see him, so what is hindering all these things is because people are not doing, in the financial realm, what God’s called them to do,”

He added: “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.”

To make matters even more confusing Duplantis defended his use private jets by saying: “People ask me if I have a private jet, I say, ‘Yes, and you can have it the day after The Rapture, because Jesse is going to heaven’.”

His answer represented a change in response previously claiming commercial planes are full of “demons”.

The clip of his speech was shared on Twitter by Right-Wing Watch, an account that monitors the activation of radical right-wing political organizations.

Since then, Duplantis has been criticised as a “scammer” and “snake oil” salesman.
