Pastor Jim & Lori Bakker discuss the persecution that is taking place here and now for Day 1 on The Jim Bakker Show.
All the things Jesus said would happen when he comes back is happening now. All of them are happening now and we’re not paying attention. -Pastor Jim Bakker
Persecution is coming to America, persecution is coming to Christians. We have to understand that. -Zach Drew
There are so many in the church that don’t know Jesus. And there’s persecution, but the sadness is, some of it is coming from inside the church. -Pastor Jim Bakker
We’re going to be so set apart in so many ways, and that’s how they’re going to know us… The enemy of our soul is going to know us by that [the fruits of the Spirit], and they’re going to say, “That’s a real Christian.” -Lori Bakker
If you don’t love the people around you, you have reason to question your own salvation. I think the thing is, we can’t love people until we love God first, and when we love God and the Father’s love is in us, it overflows to those around us. -Zach Drew
Grandma with her canned goods will have more power than the president of General Motors. -Pastor Jim Bakker
