The Jim Bakker Show

I recently had the opportunity to visit with Jim and Lori Bakker, and their whole family and community in southern Missouri. I truly fell in love with everyone there. Jim and Lori are both tremendously gracious, genuine, humble, down-to-earth folks, with real pastoral hearts. I look forward to visiting with them again in the weeks, months and years ahead. You can click here to go directly to the Jim Bakker web-site to watch all three full episodes that we filmed together. Below are a couple short segments from the show:

    Joel: What would you say to someone who has a hard time looking forward to the Kingdom of God? I’ve heard people give various reasons for this idea, such as not wanting to not be married anymore, not having the same family relationships they have on earth, living in an ancient, foreign kind of “kingdom” (with feasts and ceremonies similar to those in the Old Testament), etc.

    Hi Joel,
    I just finished reading ‘When a Jew Rules the World’. (Applause) It so mirrors what I have been feeling for the past 2 years. I can’t say how great it is. It’s a must read for every Christian and Jew. You put it all into perspective so beautifully and understandably. I’m passing it around to lots of folks who just DON’T GET IT. Thank you for your ministry. Blessings.

    Thank you Laurel. This is a blessing to hear. Be sure to write a review on Amazon as the book kicks off. This will help its launch. Bless you!

    Joel, your book “Islamic Antichrist” was a huge revelation for me. I have studied a “westernized” version of prophecy since the early 1980s, when someone gave me a copy of the Late Great Planet Earth. A friend of mine who has ministered throughout the Middle East and I could never understand his love for those in the Muslim faith. But as I read your books and heard your interview, I can understand how we can make a difference through prayer and supporting ministries in the Muslim world. There so much more, but I just wanted to say thank you. God bless.

    Great programs. Interviews were a blessing to watch. Your adoption of the futurist view of Daniel 8 is quite compelling. I appreciate Mark Davidson’s Four Signposts. Since 2009, Obama has been accommodating Iran. Treasonous Western multinational corporations are salivating to enter and invest in Iran. Iran’s economy will explode upward, further enabling their territorial expansion. Iran is already in Iraq, Syria and Yemen with a weak economy. As you said, ISIS maybe the bait to draw Iran out into their invasion. When the Iran invasion occurs, Daniel 8 will be a strong tool of evangelism for us. I am really enjoying the new book. The more I read the more furious I get at the replacement theology christians. God Almighty did not lie to Abram in Geneses 15. Blessings.

    You are welcome Joel. Here is a link to my friend Don Little and you two may benefit in some way due his long term work with the Muslim community. Just tell him tha Tom from Cambridge sent you.

    Joel…you were awesome on the Jim Bakker show. He is still praising your book even this week. I love what Zack said about your book The Islamic Antichrist. “It’s like finding the enemy’s playbook.” Wow!! I have it ordered and can’t wait to read it. Blessings to you and everyone on the front lines. Praying for your protection and even deeper revelations to come to you.. dear brother.

    “not wanting to not be married anymore”
    Well enjoy your spouse while you can and have as many kids while you can

    “Living in an ancient, foreign kind of “kingdom””
    What makes you think it won’t be incredibly sophisticated futurist, almost like a sci-fi fantasy world? Remember we’ll be around for a thousand years on this earth. That means we’ll get to see what Britain, France, and America looks like in the year 2793. I mean, technology is already pretty awesome, can you imagine the tech that will be around and developed in Israel by then?
    Consider this some of the greatest scientific minds will come back in the resurrection. Isaac Newton, etc. Some of the greatest composers were believers too. They’ll all be back, along with Jesus, his disciples, and all the saints from the Hebrew Bible. All living in the same time period. Also, all your ancestors in your family tree who died in God, they will all be there too. All the way back to Noah, back to Adam. Wouldn’t you like to meet your ancestors? in a chain stretching that far back?
    Also, right now the money system makes everything too expensive, but in the millennium, things will be fair and just.

    The coolest thing apart from hanging out of all the people just mentioned will be the change to your body. You have no idea just how epic it will be.
    The Bible lays out what this new immortal body will be like for those who search the scriptures, and the amount of fun there is to be had in it, you have no freakin idea. The Bible says we will have a body like the risen Christ, a body like the angels.

    Read what Christ was able to do after his resurrection, then read what the Psalm 18 describes we’ll be able to do.

    It’s so much better than what Vampires or most super heroes are able to do.
    Of course most people don’t have the faith to believe something that epic. That’s partly why the Bible rarely talks about it, but life itself is hard to believe. That little cells can multiply and grow into a full human body would never happen without God, but what 1 Corinthians 2:9 says is true.

    If you want to read about the resurrection, check this out:

    (with feasts and ceremonies similar to those the Old Testament), etc.

    would it be possible for you to upload that photo of the false prophet Isa that your friend from Iran took to your website or send to my e-mail?

    I will be teaching some youth here in New Zealand about the last days and would like to show them that picture so they can understand what the Muslim world is waiting for… a subordinate “prophet” who destroys everything sacred to our faith…

  • Janae
    Posted at 19:40h, 19 March

    David, thanks for the ideas and info. Since the Bible doesn’t seem to say a whole lot about the millennial kingdom or about Heaven, I think some people fear the unknown. Also, since some of what the Bible does say regarding these places sounds so extremely different from what many people are used to, I think some people fear the idea of so much change. Is Satan trying to convince people that perhaps they won’t really like the places God has prepared for them? Maybe…

  • David Roberts
    Posted at 04:57h, 20 March

    Thanks Joel,
    do you also have the one of it being displayed in Iran?
    I want to wake up the Church to whom Satan is prepping the Islamic world to receive.

  • David Roberts
    Posted at 05:08h, 20 March


    “Is Satan trying to convince people that perhaps they won’t really like the places God has prepared for them? Maybe…”

    Absolutely. For a long time he’s been trying to convince people that hell is the best place for them and that being with God won’t be worth it. Songs like highway to hell, etc…

    But when people see the deserts around the holy land turn into a garden of Eden like enviroment, when they see just how beautiful, dreamy and epic it all truly is, and find out they missed out on it, that’s what the weeping and gnashing of teeth is all about.

    That it all could have been your’s for the taking,
    but you choose something else instead which really wasn’t worth it.
    It will totally eat people up and drive them mad.

    Imagine you fall in love and you could have married the girl/guy of your dream’s, but because you were off doing something else, someone else got them instead of you, then you find it, they would have said yes if only you asked,
    or a reletive was going to leave you 1 million dollars, but you were busy one day when they rang you, so they didn’t leave you anything, then you find out, it was that day when you didn’t come that they decided not to leave you anything. That’s the gnashing of teeth.

    People are blind to what God has prepared for those who love him from before the foundation of the world. God is not going to fail to deliver.
    He takes forever sometimes, but when the time comes,
    his gifts are better than anything anyone can offer.

    I’m looking forward to running faster than 60MPHs,
    running down a basketball court, throwing the ball over the top of the person in front of me, and walking right through the person in front of me and suddenly appearing at the top of the hoop to smash it down.
    Not getting tired anymore, not getting sick anymore,
    not going to the bathroom to relieve myself anymore,
    having a mind that can learn things immediately and a better than photographic memory that always delivers with total recall.

    Have you ever seen those documentaries about those people with amazing minds who can draw entire cities or learn languages in one week,
    those with resurrection bodies will have minds and physical abilities that make those people look like they’re retarded.

    From Egypt to Assyria it will be a total dreamworld, paradise on earth.
    We will build totally new gorgeious cities and hang out at night in Jerusalem and at the beach in Israel and live for hundreds of years without aging.

    People seriously have no clue just how good it is going to be.
    The question is how many will be like Esau who sold his birthright for a bowl of stew?

    Just finished your new book. Not only was it the best defense of Israel and God’s plan and purpose for them that I’ve ever read, but in the light of all that’s going on, it’s release was timed perfect!

    Great Job!

    I would also add that the way you summed up your whole argument with the example set for us by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Corrie Ten Boom was powerful!

    A definite must read for the whole Church!

    Posted at 11:51h, 20 March

    Ryan, thanks for more great info of things to look forward to. I have a relative who is a Bible teacher and scholar, and even he is discouraged by that fact that there will be no marriage or continued family relationships in the millennial kingdom or in Heaven. Because we are getting so close to the rise of the antichrist and all of the bad things that are supposed to happen before the end, it helps to be reminded of all that we have to look forward to.

  • MeatHook
    Posted at 20:15h, 20 March


    I’ve almost finished the first Islamic Antichrist you wrote, and already finished the Mideast Beast. I cannot thank you enough for what you do. I initially started getting informed about this by stumbling across Walid Shoebat’s website by happenstance. After finding him, and doing some digging, I eventually found your website, and the Word of God you express so well.

    Since then, I do my best to keep up with your work, and look forward to this latest book. If it is half as good as the others, I know I’ll be happy. I’ve been doing my best to inform those I know about all this, but find few who are as passionate. I just wanted to thank you for everything you are doing for all of us. I just hope people start waking up.

    I worry that people are so happy with the status quo that they just don’t care. I just worry for our Country. Once again, thank you. If you ever need help, please let me know. I’d be honored to be apart of it.

    Posted at 05:41h, 21 March

    Janae said, “I have a relative who is… …discouraged by that fact that there will be no marriage or continued family relationships in the millennial kingdom…”

    Let’s leave your spouse out of the equation for a second.
    If you have brothers and/or sisters, the relationship will very pretty similar. I mean, you relationship with them is not sexual,
    so you’ll still ask each other how you are and do stuff together.
    As your relationship with your parents is also not a sexual relationship, it will be like a relationship with an elder brother or sister, because now you both have an immortal mind with full knowledge and comprehension of morality and how to live in the kingdom like the angels have, it won’t be an infant/adult relationship but more like an elder brother relationship.
    Your other family relationships will all be similar to this.

    That only leaves your spouse, now imagine two girl friends who are best friends and talk for hours and go places together, or two guys who are best friends and go hiking together and talk about life, ministry and the Lord,
    yes, it will be different, but now it will be more about your minds and hearts, and less about what’s between your legs, it will be about meaningful conversions, going places together, and being the best-est friends ever.

    You know how there are some tom-boy girls who always felt like they missed out on things because they were born as a girl, they won’t feel like that anymore, they’ll be able to sleep next to ‘boys’ who they wanted to have fun with, go swimming together, and there will be no sin, no shame, no temptation, just freedom, joy, love and true friendship… and if I understand scripture correctly, we won’t even need to sleep, but we’ll be totally pulled full of energy. So we’ll have opportunities to do things we always wished we could do, with no regrets or shame.

    Anyone who has ever tried playing contact sports with members of the opposite sex and has had to go to the Lord afterwards about it will know what I’m talking about.

    David Roberts…”Anyone who has ever tried playing contact sports with members of the opposite sex and has had to go to the Lord afterwards about it will know what I’m talking about.” LOL, David!

    Why do so many make such a to-do about the Millennial Kingdom in the Body of Christ? It will be a vastly improved system in every way from righteous government, as Christ is the head who is King-President; an environment as a restored setting to what is similar to the Garden of Eden; an expanded potential for the Saints of God who are rewarded with physical, spiritual, and knowledge renewal that was previously unknown; and best of all sin will be so diminished that it will seem like heaven on earth compared to what we endure now?

    God will not disappoint, so why do some doubt His deep and abiding love for His Saints? This kind of talk must grieve God deeply.

    I really wish some ministry or someone finance a movie,
    or even just a short film on the last days from a pro-trib mideast-beast perspective.

    Just to show a see of people bowing down to the ground towards the image of the Antichrist, with false prophet Isa bringing fire down from heaven.
    Armageddon News has done the best job I’ve seen on an incredibly limited budget, but we need real serious production to ‘get out there’ so that the body of Messiah will wake up to what’s about to be unleashed on the earth.

    Hi Joel,

    Did you see this article, “The Goals of the Islamic State: Hijrah, al-Haramayn and Hegemony” from It’s the post from 3/19/15.

    He gives this citation from God’s Caliph: Religious Authority in the First Centuries of Islam: “[I]t was control of these places [Mecca and Medina] rather than world domination which gave the Ottoman caliphate a certain plausibility, just as it is control of the same places which gives the Sa`udi monarchs a quasi-caliphal role today” (note 18, p. 100).

    So to accept this point, then a neo-Ottoman (or any would be) caliphate would really be looking to control Mecca and Medina, at least at some point.

    The article made me think. Your thoughts?

    Great teaching points on the Bakker show.

    Joel: I give thanks to God for your wisdom. Thank you for your research. I watched the three shows a couple of times each. They gave me hope. The Spirit of God moves through you and there is a peaceful annointing when you speak.
    I came across a youtube channel that is called “Armageddon News”. They are not among the ministries you recommend. They have, however, a video that captured my attention: “ISLAM:Babylon the Great”. Have you seen this channel? Would you mind give me your insight on it?
    Thank you very much. God bless you and your family.

    With Iran taking over the region per the text of Daniel, I’m a little lost when it comes to Turkeys role as far as becoming the “top dog” as Iran spreads throughout the region. Is there some sort of Union between Turkey and Iran or is there conflict between the two so that Turkey can come out on top after its all said and done.

    Iran and Turkey are not buds right?

    Joel- I want to thank you for your work. I was able recently to purchase your DVD documentary End Times Eyewitness. My wife who is a Christian, had in the past was very confused about Bible Prophecy. She often told me… I just know The LORD is coming..LOL.Anyway, when we watched your DVD she said this is the best DVD on prophecy I have ever seen. She seemed to understand the Scriptures and Bible Prophecy more. I agree with her that is the best Prophecy DVD we have seen. The message was clear, just as your books have been. I have read other prophecy books and they are just confusing, and prophecy should not be confusing. Thank you for ministry and opening the eyes to many people about the Islam and Bible Prophecy. God bless you Joel! Maranatha!!
