Robertson to televise second coming
The Rev. Pat Robertson's Sept. 17th multimillion-dollar,
three-hour extravaganza will be broadcast in 220 cities,
reaching all 50 states. Michael Clifford, whose company,
Victory Communications, is coordinating the event,
said the telecast is "a first in presidential politics."
Utilizing three communication satellites, mobile earth
stations, and some of the nation's largest stadiums,
Clifford noted, "This is the largest hookup that's
ever been done anywhere to my knowledge."
This event is a mere foreshadowing of what Robertson
sees on the horizon. Last February, _The_Freedom_Writer_
reported that Robertson claims God spoke through a
word of prophecy in May 1968, and said, "I have chosen
you to usher in the coming of My Son." Robertson elaborated
on this prophecy during the week of Dec. 9-12, 1984,
when speaking on a Satellite Network Seminar held at
the Word of Faith World Outreach Center in Dallas,
"'I'm going to let you usher Him in,'" Robertson said,
referring to the word he claims to have received from
God. "Now where do you usher in the coming?" Robertson
continued. "You usher in the coming where He's going
to come." He then announced that the Christian Broadcasting
Network will provide worldwide television coverage
of the second coming of Jesus Christ from the Mount
of Olives in Jerusalem. He didn't say when he expected
this to take place, but it is known that the 56-year-old
evangelist fully expects it to happen in his lifetime.
In the 1984 Dallas sermon, Robertson asked rhetorically,
"What's coming next?" Robertson predicted that in the
next few years, "God is going to put us [born-again
Christians] in positions of leadership and responsibility,"
"the church members will have taken dominion over the
forces of the world," there will be "a spirit-filled
president in the White House," "the men in the Senate
and House of Representatives are [going to be] spirit-filled
and worship Jesus," and "the judges [will] do the same."
We will have a school system "where humanism isn't
taught anymore." He also alluded to strict censorship,
saying, "pornographers will no longer have any access
to the public whatsoever."
Robertson emphasized that these things can take place
now, not in the distant future, as this is the time
Christ is establishing His kingdom.
