APOCALYPSE NOW: End of the WORLD on the way warns man who predicted stock market crash

Archive: Constant Apocalypse.

A CHRISTIAN evangelist who predicted the downfall of the stock markets this summer has revealed the world is ending.

Jim Bakker said the apocalypse is coming because God told him to wear black underwear.

Speaking on his TV show, he said: “The last time God told me to wear a colour was red, and what happened that day [August 21]? The stock market crashed.

“Today, God said, ‘I want you to wear all black.’ Even my shoes are black. My underwear is black. My socks are black.”

His red outfit in August coincided with the Dow Jones plummeting a staggering 531 points – concluding its worst week in four years.

Lori, his wife and co-host, told him the detail about his underwear was “too much information”.

But Bakker disagreed, warning: “No, it is not too much information because when God says, ‘Get the sin out’, He meant, ‘Get the sin out.’

“When you take over your enemy, you are to destroy every part of the enemy. I am in mourning because people aren’t ready.”

Bakker resigned as a minister from the Assemblies of God – a church based in Springfield, Missouri – in 1987 after being accused of rape.

He was convicted of fraud a year later but became a TV star after being released in the mid-1990s.

A Christian sect incorrectly predicted the the Earth would be “annihilated” with fire yesterday.

US religious group eBible Fellowship previously claimed the world would end on 21 May 2011 – but insisted the new date was correct.

Chris McCann, leader of the sect, said: “According to what the Bible is presenting it does appear that 7 October will be the day that God has spoken of…

“The world will pass away… It’ll be gone forever. Annihilated.”
