  1. Oct 29, 2015 We have recently disconnected from dish network. To expensive on a fixed income. We have a first generation Roku. We love to watch PTL. However when I try to watch it live, I’m getting older shows. Its almost like your current shows take over a week to retrieve. Is this because we have a older Roku or are you delayed in downloading them onto Roku? I’m so proud of Jim and Lori and how much they love the Lord and His people.

    • Hi Debra, you can check on our website to see when we are doing LIVE tapings. Here’s the link–>http://jimbakkershow.com/show-schedule/
      After the LIVE tapings it typically takes 3-5 business days to get these shows out to our networks and posted online including Roku.

  2. Erick, without belaboring you to much, and this is the ROKU in GENERAL, NOT meaning JIM’S PTL: ROKU is expensive upfront and expensive if you want to download anything other than free shows which are very few. We were told there were many free shows. We do not have secular TV because of expense and we do not want the filth in our home; we want to select shows we allow in. ROKU is horrible to set up, hard to maneuver when changing channels, not to mention the “we’ll be right back” messages that stay on the screen forever. We are returning it. I really hope you can make a way for us to see PTL another way, because I was so excited to see it come back. I am an old “PTL’r and I prayed for Jim for 30 years and the Lord told me Jim would be back, and now to see those wonderful shows again would be top of the world blessing for me.

  3. Excuse me if I missed this request in other’s answers, but we so need to be able to see the NEW PTL Restored Shows in other ways besides on a ROKU. ROKU is not working out for us and I feel so sad that once PTL is back, I can’t see it. Help Please.

    Love to All, Lynn, North Carolina

    • I’m sorry to hear that Lynn. At the moment the PTL Classic shows are only on Roku. We are in the process of creating a Video on Demand page for these and other shows. And may I ask, what issues are you having with the Roku?

  4. I am reminded of Romans 11:29 In the Amplified Bible Classic Edition says, “For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.]” Man may fall, but the gift given by God in whom he chooses to do His will, shall always be restored.

  5. Also watched you in the 70s \\\as so encouraged. Brand new Christian. Want to see you in person. Will be in Branson in May.Teri

  6. Restoration to any Brother or Sister in Christ to me is a most beautiful and blessed thing. I feel Jim’s ministry will be greater than ever in the latter half of his life. “May you live to be 120, Jim!”

  7. And now all that the LORD spoke to you here in Pittsburgh Pa on that day after you were released from prison has come to pass.

  8. I was going through a really bad time in my life, and at four in the A. M. Jim and Tammy would come on. What a life saver they were. I worked 5 different jobs. One was delivering Mail, and when I was finished I would go home get my stuff and jump back in my car and drive to PTL from Pennsylvania. I have 5 Life Time Partnerships. I could go a lot and enjoyed every minute. I could go on and on about PTL. Thank You Lord, can’t wait to see what happens next. Love you Lord, you to Jim. Please help us Lord. We trust and Love You for what is in store for us. Amen

    • Wow, that smacks of good fruit to me! I use to watch PTL too and was so grateful for their daily television ministry in my first steps with the Lord, in the late 1970s. The fall of so many mega ministries was a great test for the church at America, but Jim came through shining brighter than ever. God works all things for the good to those who love him and are called according to His purpose.

      I still feel strongly that there was a setup in relation to the fall of PTL in the 1980s. So often Jim and Tammy would remark that “The devil is bidding high for souls”, and in Jim and Tammy’s’ case that really proved true. There had to have been something highly valuable to God’s kingdom and threatening to the devil’s kingdom in PTL ministries, or the Enemy wouldn’t have pulled out all the stops to fight against it.

  9. In Feb 77′ two incredible things happened as 3 of us were enjoying PTL out of Chicago Station…Jim gave a Word of Knowledge about a manor creative miracle Mom (with her sister by her) began experiencing “heat” in her feet..and then all thru her body..physically and then emotionally..at the same time..I was in my home nearby watching PTL and weeping as His message permiated my life with Hope & Love..suddenly I was aware of a great light to my right..and standing in that light was Jesus..His face shining like the Sun..and He stretched out His nail-pierced hands and said to me..”Though you be as Doubting Thomas and have to see to believe… I’ll show you myself so you can see..believe..and tell others!” My wounded Heart began to Heal and indeed I’ve been telling others ever since!! Our prayers for Jim stood in his behalf as he went thru his prison awakening..and he has indeed proven himself Faithful!! Thank you for all you bring to us in these End Times!! “Be pleasers of God..not pleasers of men!” Amen!!! Pam & Jay

  10. I watched the PTL club back in the late 70’s so awesome and into the 80’s . I loved it every minute of it so glad you got it back . I enjoy the classic PTL so amazing guest and Uncle Henry . I visted Heritage USA in the late 1988 amaxing place love ya God bless

  11. I was a PTL lifetime member and loved Heritage USA! I went there often, and it was a beautiful place. The hotel was first-class, and my family and I enjoyed several vacations there. I watched the PTL shows live, and saw many of the famous Christian speakers and artists of the day. It was wonderful to go to the Upper Room and pray anytime of the day or night. I miss it so much, and wish it was restored to it’s original glory! As a side note, I gave my offering to God, not PTL, and was appalled when the partners rose up against Jim. When you give, you release that to God, and the wonderful times of spiritual refreshing were more than worth every penny I gave! I am so happy God has restored Jim Bakker’s ministry.

    • You just wrote my reply. I was greatly impacted by PTL. I loved watching Jim, Tammy, the children, Uncle Henry and Aunt Sarah; watching each day gave me a sense of “settled-ness” and well being. I was coming out of rebellion and drugs back then and the Lord healed me through the washing of tears and submission to the Lord when Jim preached. Yes, I loved the guests, but the regular people were my spiritual family. My precious father was on some of PTL’s first shows back in the early 70’s and I visited Heritage several times. I do not remember Jim making the gospel all about money! I remember him preaching healing messages, Tammy singing moving songs and it gave me hope! When they took Jim away and tore his and a lot of people’s lives apart, I was devastated and hit the floor crying and praying. I was too distraught to function and the Lord in His mercy said four words to me: “Jim will be back”. I was able to get up and stand on that word! All those years, I would say that to people. I would testify about the good and put anything said under the blood. In my older age, now 63, I have lived to see the Lord fulfill HIS word to me with Morningside and the restoration of the PTL Network! I have seen the Lord bring Jim his precious wife Lori, an awesome and wise preacher in her own right and I have seen Tammy Sue come home. I am praying that his cannon of works be restored to him as well. May Jim ignore any naysayers and destructive people because Jesus has Jim’s back!!! We just got back from our fourth Expo and as usual, I cried like a baby when I had to leave. Lynn, North Carolina

  12. The Lord saved me March 3, 1979 It was when I turned on the PTL Club Jim Bakker led a repentance prayer I was born again. Hallelujah. Thank you Jesus.
    In Christ,

  13. I would love you to provide a link from the Jim Bakker Show website/network to the PTL Network/website, so more of us would have easier access to the new restored PTL Network. Praise The Lord!

    • Hi Jeffrey we will be providing that soon. We’re still finalizing the PTL Network website. We’ll be advertising it very soon. Thank you!

    • PTL WAS NOT A Disneyland IT WAS A VERY NICE PLACE THAT WAS PLACE OF FELLOWSHIP & WORSHIP AND A FEW EXTRA THINGS TO ENJOY & HAVE A LITTLE FUN. I HAD BEEN THERE 3 or 4 TIMES . I HAD TURNED IN MY CHILDS LIFE INS. POLICY TO GET A MEMBERSHIP & MY PARENTS BOUGHT ME ANOTHER ONE. THEN THE FALL OF JIM BAKKER. I ALONG WITH ALL THE OTHERS LOST IT ALL. SO NOW I’M GOING TO BLUE EYE , MO TO BE AT HIS NEW SHOW . I WAS THERE LAST ” GET READY EXPO ” LOT IF GREAT THINGS GOING ON>

      • It was the only vacation I’ve ever had. We got a new van and drove up over those scary Appalachians to get there. The first day we were there I slept late and my husband came back and said, “I walked over ever foot of this place.”! We went to go eat while they cleaned our room, and over to the water park, then back to rest up and out to eat again. One day my husband took the kids out for for fun and I lounged around and ordered a very nice meal up to our room and wrote a letter to my dad (I had no dishes to do!). It doesn’t get any better then that :) Now, if the Lord is willing, I want to move to Mornigside and live in one of those awesome condos.

        • I am so glad that PTL has been restored. In the 70s I was a two time Lifetime Partner and I would visit PTL twice a year. I have so many good memories and items that I purchase as souvenirs from PTL. I still say that there is no place like PTL; It was a special touch from Heaven.☺️

  14. I love at the end of that 1978 classic PTL CLub Episode when Jim made the prophecy he would build a DIsneyland for Christians. And look how it came to pass. I am amazed at how much he has accomplished and even with all the setbacks Jim keeps right on going. I am so glad he never gave up.

  15. I absolutely love seeing the classic PTL Episode today with Tammy Sue dressed up as a clown from 1978. I hope you guys continue to air show with the entire PTL Family. Looking forward to seeing some great interviews with the likes of Ronald Regan, Jimmy Carter, George Bush, Mr. T, Nell Carter, Marla Gibbs, Della Reese, Pearl Bailey. Thanks for making this dream a reality and great job on the new PTL Television Network.

  16. I would like to AGREE according to MATT 18 18-20 , WHEN TWO OR MORE OF YOU AGREE ,
    ON MY FATHERS WILL , IT WILL BE DONE , that “PASTOR JIM BAKKER HAS ALWAYS FELT
    A CALLING TO PROVIDE A PLATFORM FOR TODAYS PROPHETS ” , is being done ,
    IN JESUS NAME , AMEN AND AMEN

    • Thank you! God is good! And with just a handful of people, He can make amazing things happen! We have a small but mighty team that is working hard behind the scenes to continue to improve and expand the website and it’s just going to keep getting better! :) We have more that we’re hoping to roll out soon, so keep checking in for new additions!

  17. How exciting to see the PTL Network and logo again! Enjoyed the classic PTL episode. Would love to see more classic episodes available. I watch current shows regularly on Roku. Thank you for teaching Revelation and preparing us for the times ahead.
