Televangelist Jim Bakker warned this week that a historic deal with the goal of preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon was to blame for the drought in California and was a sign of the Second Coming of Christ.
During a discussion about the End Times on The Jim Bakker Show, Alabama Pastor John Kilpatrick explained that God was punishing America for abortions, idolatry, homosexuality and fornication.
“What God said is that blood itself had a life,” Kilpatrick told Bakker. “So whenever a doctor aborts a baby and that blood is being flushed down the commode, God hears the voice of that baby going down that commode, saying, ‘Help! Forgive Lord! Forgive them! Forgive my mother!'”
Kilpatrick pointed out that the Bible said that “the land is full of sexual sin” like homosexuality.
“Because the curse of the sin the land lies parched,” he said. “What’s going on in California right now with such a drought.”
The Alabama pastor noted that God was also punishing the U.S. for “breaking covenant.”
“We’ve been in a covenant with Israel since 1948, we’ve been blessed. We haven’t cursed Israel, we’ve been blessed,” Kilpatrick observed.
“We’ve been Israel’s second home!” Bakker agreed. “We have been a second Israel. We have been somewhat as a God-blessed nation, a spiritual haven for the Jew. Israel and us are the only ones!”
“Every detail has taken place, people,” he added.
“We’re breaking covenant,” Kilpatrick continued. “But not only are we breaking covenant now, but this [same-sex marriage] law has just come down from the Supreme Court. You’ve got the blood moons coming up… all this stuff is dovetailing and coming together right now.”
“We are negotiating this minute while we are sitting here with Iran,” Bakker lamented. “We’re making covenant with Iran, who have vowed — vowed — to destroy Israel.”
“We’re not going to be able talk like this on the air much longer,” the pastor said. “We have broken covenant with Israel and made covenant Israel’s number one enemy.”
“Can you believe a president would treat somebody of the stature of [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu like that?” Kilpatrick asked.

Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.
"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.
Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.
"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.
"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
‘One whopper after another’: CNN’s Acosta tears into Trump for lying the Postal Service can’t deliver enough ballots
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta slammed President Donald Trump's litany of lies about mail-in voting at the day's coronavirus press briefing.
"Right at the end of that press conference, the president was just telling one whopper after another about mail-in voting, at one point saying that he doesn't believe that the U.S. Postal Service has the ability to deal with mail-in balloting at election time," said Acosta. "We just need to point out, the U.S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, 'the Postal Service has ample capacity to adjust our nationwide processing and delivery network to meet projected election and political mail volume, including any additional volume that may result as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.'"
