Televangelist Jesse Duplantis Says God Told Him He Needs A New Jet
Jesse Duplantis, a famous televangelist with viewers across the globe, said that God told him that he needs a new private jet. Duplantis said that God also told him the name of the jet – Dassault Falcon 7X. Dassault is a multi-engine private jet which can fly at 700 miles per hour and can carry 12 to 16 passengers.
If Duplantis buys this jet, it would be his fourth private jet. According to SherpaReport, the total cost of Falcon 7X is around $54 million and has a range of 6,000 miles. Duplantis posted a video last week in which he said that many people think that preachers shouldn’t have a private jet. But preachers should have every right to own a private jet, Duplantis added.
In that video, Duplantis further told that if God was here on the earth physically, he wouldn’t be riding a donkey. The God would be in a jet, preaching the world, said Duplantis. According to the televangelist, the God told him to have a jet in one of the greatest statement the God ever told him. The God asked Duplantis that does he want to meet the God.
In reply, Duplantis said that he couldn’t understand what the God was saying. Then God replied that he wants Duplantis to have Falcon 7X to meet him. After that Duplantis thought that how would he pay for the jet. Then Duplantis recalled a statement that God told him back in 1978, “I didn’t ask you to pay for it, I just asked you to believe it”.
The preacher said that he believes in full transparency and he believes that people should know what he is doing in his ministry. Duplantis said that a preacher does not hide anything at all. The plane would not be owned by the Duplantis but the ministry would own the plane, said Duplantis. And whoever would take over after his death, would use the jet. He further explained that the God asked him to preach the Gospel to every creature. And how will he do that, Duplantis asked. He further said that he cannot travel by car or train to preach but he can use an airplane for this purpose.
All this would touch the souls of the people, said Duplantis. He said that he is not going to fly the jet and neither he is interested in it. The jet will change the lives of the people. With this jet, he will reach to everyone and preach the Gospel of God Jesus.
After that Duplantis showed the pictures of 3 jets which the ministry currently holds. He captioned the photo with “It’s not about possession but it’s all about priorities.” Duplantis also talked about the US embassy in Israel which is going to move in Jerusalem. The preacher said that he is very excited about this embassy movement. The preacher also said that the end time is coming fast.

Back in 2015, Duplantis along with his fellow Kenneth Copeland appeared in a video and in that video both televangelists defended their private jets. At that time, Copeland said that both of them are very famous and people from remote areas come to ask for the prayers. In today’s world, one cannot manage that, Copeland added. He further said the combination of dope-filled world and demons make it deadly.
It is not the first time that a televangelist asked its supporters for a private jet. Back in 2015, Creflo Dollar in a video message asked its supporters to help him buy a Gulfstream G650 having cost around $650 million.
Dollar’s ministry already had a private jet but he wanted a new one as the previous was of no use for the preacher. Duplantis along with many other American televangelists like Kenneth Copeland, Joel Osteen, and Creflo Dollar owns a number of million dollar mansions.
The Americans believe in prosperity gospel and according to this gospel, God makes its true believers blessed and wealthy. A poll of 2016 showed that more than 30% of the Americans believe that if one gives money to God, then God will bless the believer with more wealth. However, many Bible verses dismiss this belief.
