United States preacher asks followers to help buy fourth private jet

United States preacher asks followers to help buy fourth private jet

Mr Duplantis justified the request by saying that Jesus had told people to "go into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, now how we gonna do that?" "I really believe that preachers ought to. have every available outlet to get this Gospel preached to the world".

But he's crowdfunding the bill because God told him to, he says. "Think about it for a minute".

He can fly around the world on his current jet, but he can't do it without stopping to refuel.

Duplantis explained that he wouldn't personally own the plane.

"Let me just say this - we're believing God for a brand new Falcon 7X so we can go anywhere in the world in one stop".

A TV evangelist in the USA has admitted to having second thoughts about asking his congregation to buy him a private jet.

However, when he anxious about the price, God said, "Jesse, I didn't ask you to pay for it, I asked you to believe for it", Duplantis added.

"He stated 'earlier than you ask, I'll reply: Isaiah 65:24'".

Fellow prosperity gospel ministers Creflo Dollar and Kenneth Copeland have also come under fire in recent years for calling on fellow Christians to fund multi-million dollar private jets.

Dassault, who makes the three-engine Falcon 7X, describe it as "the benchmark for the 21st century business jet".

According to the Jesse Duplantis Facebook page, Duplantis is scheduled to travel to New York, Tennessee, Michigan, Washington, Montana, California, and Alberta over the next month, with trips back to Louisiana in between.

"We by no means ask you to offer one thing that me and Cathy do not give ourselves", he stated. This will be the fourth private plane owned by Duplantis' ministry if his request for financial aid pays off.

Duplantis is based in Destrehan, Louisiana, outside of New Orleans.

Duplantis said that God is behind the initiative. "I can't live long enough to travel by vehicle, or by ship, or by train, but I can do it by an airplane".

"People coming up to him, he had become famous, and they wanted him to pray for them and all that", he continued. "Stand up and say, 'What did you say, Lord?'"
