Pat Robertson says disasters point to 2nd coming
Oct. 9, 2005: More than a decade ago, the catastrophic earthquake in South Asia in the wake of U.S. hurricanes and a major tsunami caught the eye of televangelist Pat Robertson, who said we “might be” in the End Times described in the Bible.
“These things are starting to hit with amazing regularity,” Robertson said.
Robertson, a former GOP presidential candidate and host of the “700 Club” daily Christian TV show, noted: “If you read back in the Bible, the letter of the apostle Paul to the church of Thessalonia, he said that in the latter days before the end of the age that the Earth would be caught up in what he called the birth pangs of a new order. And for anybody who knows what it’s like to have a wife going into labor, you know how these labor pains begin to hit. I don’t have any special word that says this is that, but it could be suspiciously like that.”–
“What was called the blessed hope of the Bible is that one day Jesus Christ would come back again, start a whole new era, that this world order that we know would change into something that would be wonderful that we’d call the millennium,” he continued. “And before that good time comes there will be some difficult days and there will be likened to what a woman goes through in labor just before she brings forth a child.”
When asked if the world was approaching that moment, Robertson said, “It’s possible. I don’t have any special revelation to say it is but the Bible does indicate such a time will happen in the end of time. And could this be it? It might be.”
