Jesse Duplantis, an evangelical pastor based in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States, has claimed that Jesus has not returned because Christians have not donated enough.
Speaking during a live TV event tagged ‘Victorython’ on Victory Channel, Duplantis said understanding that people have not donated enough and giving more will speed up the process of Jesus’ second coming.
He also bragged about being a multi-millionaire and owning a private plane.
“I honestly believe this – the reason why Jesus hasn’t come is because people are not giving the way God told them to give,” he said.
“When you understand this, you can speed up the time.
“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.”
