Televangelist says God told him he needs 4th private plane

1 min


Jesse Duplantis, a televangelist with viewers across the globe, says God told him he needs a new jet.

Specifically, God told Duplantis he needs a Dassault Falcon 7X, a three-engine private jet capable of carrying 12 to 16 passengers at speeds up to 700 miles per hour. The Falcon 7X, which would be the fourth plane owned by Jesse Duplantis Ministries,  has a range of almost 6,000 miles and costs about $54 million new, according to SherpaReport (although used ones are listed online for as little as $20 million).

“Now, some people believe that preachers shouldn’t have jets,” Duplantis said in a video posted last week. “I really believe that preachers ought to … have every available outlet to get this Gospel preached to the world.”

In fact, Duplantis said that “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,” he said.

“He’d be in an airplane preaching the Gospel all over the world,” he said.

Duplantis said he then recalled something God told him in 1978. “‘Jesse, I didn’t ask you to pay for it, I asked to believe for it.'”

The preacher explained that he was interested in full transparency.

“I like all people to know exactly what I’m doing in this ministry,” Duplantis said. “We don’t hide nothing whatsoever at all.”

Duplantis explained that he wouldn’t personally own the plane. Rather, the plane would be owned by the ministry and would be used by the next person to take it over after his death.
