It must be working, it's still running... we're thinking of doing a shot when she says it :lol:

Funny story about it:
What?! You are bathing the children?! Why would you tell a random man who rings your doorbell that that you can't come to the door because you are bathing your children?! How about, "I'm cleaning my rifle.", "I'm practicing jujitsu.", or "I'm waxing my husband's large muscular chest."

Seeing that and the other Jim Bakker commercials for his particular k-rations reveals that Bakker's big sales pitch is not that a hurricane might hit your home in New Orleans or Puerto Rico and the Republic President would be slow to pull his thumb out and do the right thing. It's not that our President's dear friend in Moscow might arrange a cyber-attack on our power grid and scramble grocery deliveries for months and months. Nor even that climate change would cause crop failures and widespread drought and wildfires that would result in crop failures.

It's that the Rapture will happen and YOU WILL BE LEFT BEHIND! Yes, you, you benighted sinner, would be unworthy of being taken up to Heaven, you will be condemned to endure Satan's thousand years of unopposed rule on Earth .... and good ol' Jim Bakker wants to take your sin-stained money to make sure that a vile reprobate like yourself is kept fat and jolly through your well-deserved Hell on Earth. And you're gonna pay it because, as Jim says, when the Tribulation hits the fan gold and silver won't be worth anything but only food will have value -- and you know for sure that you ain't gonna be called up yonder. (By the way, some foodies who have sampled the stuff Bakker is peddling have suggested that, after four days, you may decide that weaker members of your family are expendible, with steak sauce.)

Somehow this is not quite what I expected from a Bible thumper.

(By the way, in the commercial shown, he makes reference, while talking about the powdered milk - he evidently assumes that when you won't have access to fresh groceries you will still have access to pure water - he uses a word that sounds like "shimeed". I tried several possible spellings and couldn't find this in a collegiate dictionary and hope someone can clarify it for me.)

I tried different spellings also. Plus using phrases about God's judgment. I didn't get anything close.

My guess it does have to do with the hurricanes.
People would think the storms are over, no need to buy the emergency food.
He reminds "us" that the storms are just the beginning.

This is a different video at this article.

Well you know a person has to have something to eat when they go to heaven. With the inrush of Republicans the logistics of feeding everyone might not be in place for the first few days.

In Heaven the righteous will be feasting on the leviathan, an enormous kosher fish (with fins and scales, not a shellfish).

He popped off the radar for a long time after his fall from grace. I would have thought some prison time and the loss of nearly everything he had would have changed him for the better. I saw an interview of him (and his son, I think) in the last year or two. It changed him all right; it made him more bat shit crazy than ever.

My personal theory is that the rapture already happened - eighteen people, mostly homeless, were taken. Nobody else noticed.

I saw the copper (I think) shoes along the bank of the Danube in Budapest. It's a very moving memorial. :(

"Shemitah" or "shmita" - the Jewish sabbath year. Part of Bakker's schtick is that the shmita was going to usher in the Apocalypse. That doesn't appear to have happened so now he's now he's saying the shmita was just the beginning so buy your drums of powdered milk now before it's too late!

NBA on CBS actually threw to commercial with the announcer hesitantly saying, "Brought to you by AT&T. More for your thing."

That's their new slogan.
AT&T Reaches Out to Connect 'Riverdale' Fans With Extra CW Content
Variety-Mar 8, 2018
For AT&T, the concept helps the company make good on its new slogan: “More for your thing.” If you haven't seen its ads (from Omnicom Group agency BBDO) in the Olympics and other sporting events telling viewers the company helps them connect to anything from “Game of Thrones” to virtual reality, hey .
