Jim Bakker and Mondo De La Vega said on a recent episode of The Jim Bakker Show that measles outbreaks in the U.S. and civil unrest in Central and South America are signs that Matthew 24’s prophecies are happening today. In a video clip from the show, Bakker remarks that Matthew 24:7 points to conflicts in which nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. De La Vega then connects that prophecy to current events.
“It’s happening right now,” De La Vega says. “You’re seeing it with Venezuela. You’re seeing it with Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico. You see Guatemala. You’re seeing the clash of the titans so to speak of cultures coming against one another so I think we are where we are right now according to the Bible.”
Bakker also notes that pestilence and epidemics are prophesied in Matthew 24:7 as a sign of the end times—and that long-dormant diseases are beginning to return.
“All these diseases and all these things—they’re being transferred around,” Bakker says. “It’s horrible what’s happening. … Last week there’s a cruise ship that they had so many people with the measles that they won’t let it dock. … There’s going to come a time when a fourth of the world will be destroyed by a disease from the animals.”
