Popular TV evangelist Jesse Duplantis recently released a 5-minute video, pleading his followers for donation. The purpose? He wants to buy a $54 million private jet because, according to him, God commanded him to do so.

In the said clip, the Louisiana-based preacher pointed out that God said he needed to spread the gospel with greater ease and so he “needs” the new Dassault Falcon 7X – which is considered as “’benchmark of the 21st Century business jet”. That way, he wouldn’t have to stop and refuel during missions.

Jesse Duplantis, founder of Jesse Duplantis Ministries, already owns three planes. Now he’s saying he needs another one!

In his own words, Duplantis said:

“You know I have owned three different jets in my life and I use them and just burning them up for the Lord, Jesus Christ.

“Some people believe that preachers shouldn’t have jets. I really believe that preachers ought to be able to go on every available voice, every available outlet to get this gospel preached to the world.”

The preacher even joked he wants the Starship Enterprise, the fictional ship from Star Trek.

The Dassault Falcon 7X costs $54 million.

He further went on:

“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.

“Now people say, ‘My lord, can’t you go with this one?’. ‘Yes, but I can’t go in one stop’.

“If I can do it for one stop, I can fly it for a lot cheaper because I have my own fuel farm. And that’s wha’s a blessing of the lord.

“This one here I have to stop and then you pay those exorbitant prices for jet fuel all over the world.”

“If Jesus was physically on the Earth today, he wouldn’t be riding a donkey… He’d be in an airplane, preaching the gospel all over the world,” added Duplantis.
