Televangelist Jesse Duplantis is seeking donations from his flock. In a video posted last week on his website, Duplantis asked his followers to help finance a $54 million jet to help further his ministry.
“I really believe that if the Lord Jesus Christ was physically on the Earth today, he wouldn’t be riding a donkey. He’d be in an airplane flying all over the world,” said the preacher in his video.
And what’s good enough for Jesus, is good enough for Jesse Duplantis!
The television pastor has already paid cash for three other private jets, the last bought in 2006, but he needs a new one because his ministry is “just burning them up for the Lord Jesus Christ.” Now, he needs a Dassault Falcon 7x which has three engines and can hold 12-16 passengers because Duplantis and his crew need to be able to “go anywhere in the world in one stop.”
You may be thinking that $54 million is a lot of money to ask one’s congregation to provide, but God wants Duplantis to have it. Yep, God told Duplantis, "I want you to believe in me for a Falcon 7X." How can his sheep deny that which the lord has ordained?
