Ahead of tonight’s Iowa Caucuses, Domionionist Pat Robertson says that God has told him who the next president will be, but he’s “not supposed to talk about that.” Robertson also says that God told him that Obama holds “a radical view” of America that’s different from the majority, and the America “will be torn apart by internal stress” if Obama is re-elected, apparently, and, of course, only prayer can save the United states of America.
Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch, who published the transcript and video below, writes,
Last year, Robertson claimed God told him that America’s future will be bleak because of debt and divisions, and today on The 700 Club said that God again communicated to him that financial problems and partisan politics are going to bring America into decline. Unsurprisingly, Robertson said God is no fan of President Obama.
Just one month ago, Robertson claimed God will punish the United States for President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton’s new international LGBT rights doctrine, and in November Robertson claimed that marriage equality is an abomination, and that same-sex couples want a stamp of approval from the Church so people don’t think they’re sinful.
Also in November, Robertson claimed the Oklahoma earthquakes were a sign from God that the end times are coming.
Here’s Robertson’s latest lunacy:
I spent the better part of a week in prayer and just saying, ‘God show me something,’ some things I’ll share with you. I think he showed me the next me the next president but I’m not supposed to talk about that so I’ll leave you in the dark—probably just as well—I think I’ll know who it will be. I’m going to read just as I wrote down as if I’m hearing from the Lord these words.
Your country will be torn apart by internal stress, a house divided cannot stand. Your president holds a radical view of the direction of your country which is at odds with the majority, expect chaos and paralysis. Your president holds a view that is at odds with the majority, it’s a radical view of the future of this country, so that’s why we’re having this division. This is a spiritual battle which can only be won by overwhelming prayer. The future of the world is at stake because if America falls, there’s no longer a strong champion of freedom and a champion of the oppressed of the world. There must be an urgent call to prayer. The Lord said, a time of maximum stress and peril, greater than at any time since the CBN ministry began. This country will begin disintegrating.
I started thinking, when did we start this place? We started CBN in 1960, you think of all the things that went on, you had the assassination of the president, assassination of Martin Luther King, you’ve got a war in Vietnam, you’ve got all these things, He is saying you will have worse stress than before. So I’m saying, God, let me give you some suggestions and you tell me if any of them is right, pick one. I said, is it an EMP blast? No that isn’t it. Is it a cosmic or solar or radiation blast? No. Is it Mayan galaxy alignment? No. Is it Iranian or North Korean nuclear threat? No. Is it an earthquake or a volcano? No. Is it a massive power failure? No. What is it?It’s an economic collapse. And God said, This is not my judgment, they are bringing it upon themselves.
