An evangelist is asking his ‘disciples’ to pray for him so that he can buy a $54milllion private jet. Jesse Duplantis, who already has three private planes, said that God told him
‘I want you to believe in me for a Falcon 7X’.
He told his followers that he needs the money during his weekly video address. Duplantis, 68, says the three-engine plane would allow the ministry to fly ‘anywhere in the world in one stop,’ reducing fuel costs while maintaining a global reach. He added that Jesus Christ
‘wouldn’t be riding a donkey’ today – ‘he’d be in an airplane flying all over the world.’
‘You know I have owned three different jets in my life and I use them and just burning them up for the Lord, Jesus Christ. ‘Some people believe that preachers shouldn’t have jets. I really believe that preachers ought to be able to go on every available voice, every available outlet to get this gospel preached to the world.’
‘We’re believing God for a brand new Falcon 7X, so we can go anywhere in the world in one stop. ‘Now people say, “My lord, can’t you go with this one?”. “Yes, but I can’t go in one stop”. ‘If I can do it for one stop, I can fly it for a lot cheaper because I have my own fuel farm. And that’s what’s a blessing of the lord.’
