Pretty ”Prosperity Gospel” preacher Paula White, a charlatan with very close ties to our current president, is ordering her followers to send her donations equal of one-month’s salary… or else! Those who don’t donate could face ”consequences from God” who demands the dough as a ”first fruits offering”. White:
”The reason is God lays claim to all firsts. So when you keep for yourself something that belongs to God you are desecrating what is to be consecrated to God.”
According to White, the ”firsts” are lots of cash, which ‘‘supernaturally unlocks amazing opportunity, blessing, favor and divine order for your life.”
On her website, White advises:
“Right now I want you to click on that button, and I want you to honor God with his first fruits offering.”
White, the chairperson of Trump’s evangelical advisory committee, claims she contributes a month’s pay every year as a “seed”, which according to prosperity gospel is supposed to grow into riches and other blessings. She’s also calling on others to contribute their own firsts, in the form of wages for the month of January:
“When you honor this principle, it provides the foundation and structure for God’s blessings and promises in your life, it unlocks deep dimensions of spiritual truths that literally transform your life! When you apply this everything comes in divine alignment for His plan and promises for you. When you don’t honor it, whether through ignorance or direct disobedience there are consequences!”
While White said these firsts ”belong to God and God alone”, she still wants them sent to her and then she will pass them along to the Holy Father, even though God has a PayPal account.
White delivered a prayer at Trump’s inauguration last January, the largest in history, where she called on God to give the new POTUS ”the confidence to lead us in justice and righteousness, and the compassion to yield to our better angels.”
White was among many televangelists who were questioned after Republican Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa launched a 2007 investigation into the finances of ministries that solicit millions of dollars in donations. An audit later made public by the U.S. Senate committee showed that her ministry received $150 million in donations between 2004 to 2006.
If you send White money, you will see positive consequences, she claims. It is sort of like a spiritual chain letter. White:
”When you sow a First Fruits Offering, I will rush to you the book, the devotional, and also a Paula White 2018 wall calendar! Track throughout the entire year prioritizing God with me! ”
Hold on! A Paula White calendar? Let me get my credit card!
She is the senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center, a megachurch in Apopka, Florida. She hosts her won television show, Paula White Today broadcast on the Trinity Network. She was the co-pastor of Without Walls International Church in Tampa, a church she co-founded with her then-husband Randy White. Without Walls International Church filed for Chapter 11 Federal bankruptcy. In response, the Evangelical Christian Credit Union, which claimed the church owed it $29 million, called the filing a “litigation tactic” to prevent the foreclosure of its two church locations. In 2014, White told CNN’s Erin Burnett: “I’ve never filed bankruptcy. I had resigned from Without Walls. I had absolutely no part.”
White is the personal minister to Trump who discovered her by watching her television show in 2002. Apparently, POTUS does a lot of channel surfing after Fox & Friends. He also appeared on her show. The charming anti-LGBTQ Rev. James Dobson claims White converted Trump to Christianity. Since Trump took office, White has held Oval Office prayer circles with him, Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. White was influential in Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, thereby hastening the End Times.
Like the president, White has been married three times. Her current husband is not a Slovenian model, but rock musician Jonathan Cain of Journey.
