Cindy Jacobs, a fundamentalist Christian televangelist and self-described apostle works miracles all the time. Earlier this month she claimed to have revived a dead child live on television in Jesus’ name (the child was never shown or identified except as a boy in Pakistan). It’s not, according to Jacobs, the first time she’s done that and she routinely, it seems, performs other miracles like prophesying earthquakes and stopping coup-d’etats in Africa (defeating one of the latter in between bites of chips and salsa, she says).
Recently she’s added another feather to her cap-of-miracles. This time though, she shares the credit with the prayer network run by her Texas-based Generals International ministry. Appearing on the program “Power For Life With Matt Sorger” she claims her hardy band of prayer warriors have stopped numerous terrorist bombings:
“You know, time and time again we have sent our prayer network a certain place and terrorists were exposed after that.”
It’s not a bunch of Christian Rambos whaling on the baddies though. These folks work through dreams and visions to learn where a potential terror attack will occur… and then they pray for its exposure.
Here Ms. Jacobs describes one example:
“Let me tell you [about] one that happened in our office. Our head of accounting had a dream that a building, you know, got bombed and just crashed. Crash. People were dying. So I called the staff and I said… and God gave us times and what floor it was on… you know, the bomb that hit… and so we began interceding… [IE: praying] God showed us in Dallas, Texas, right where we live that there was a bomb attack being planned and we began to intercede for the police that they would do a sting operation. Well… and one of our big buildings [in] downtown Dallas, there was a guy planning to blow it up with explosives in his car and it was exposed the next day.
So we know, we know, that God used that prayer.”
The incident Cindy Jacobs describes can only be one that happened in September 2009 when a 19-year-old Jordanian man was arrested for planning to blow up the 60-story Fountain Place office tower in Dallas. He had been identified by the FBI months earlier thanks to having vehemently proclaimed his intentions on an online extremist blog and the FBI obligingly provided him with a fake car bomb to make the attempt with.
You can watch (above at left) Cindy Jacobs claim the credit for exposing the bomb plot for her prayer group on an August 29th video provided by Right Wing Watch. How much credence you give that claim is up to you.
