Prosperity Preacher Asks Followers for Donations to Obtain $54M Jet, Says ‘Jesus Wouldn’t Be Riding a Donkey’

False teacher and prosperity preacher Jesse Duplantis is now asking his disciples for money to buy a jet that costs $54 million “so we can go anywhere in the world in one stop.” He seeks the donations in a video posted last week on his organization’s website.

Duplantis insists that God says he needs a Dassault Falcon 7X, which is a three-engine private jet that can carry 12 to 16 passengers and can travel up to 700 miles per hour. According to SherpaReport, the Falcon 7X costs about $54 million dollars new, and would be the fourth plane owned by Jesse Duplantis Ministries should it be secured through the donation drive.

“I really believe that if the Lord Jesus Christ was physically on the Earth today, he wouldn’t be riding a donkey,” Duplantis says in the video. “He’d be in an airplane flying all over the world.”

Duplantis is not the first to solicit donations for a private jet. In 2015, prosperity preacher Creflo Dollar obtained his coveted $70 million dollar jet after his religious organization’s board agreed to buy him one after soliciting donations from his worldwide audience.
