These are the ten richest pastors in the world which Satan has blessed. We will skip the ones covered previously, such as Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, and Billy Graham.
Number 10: Joyce Meyer – $8,000,000
Joyce Meyer, a woman pastor, has a net worth of $8 million. You will notice that all the pastors in this article will span in two principal categories: non-denominational and Charismatic. They become popular and influential because they believe in the sowing of seed money. Without their sermons being mainly on sowing seed and offering money to their church, they would not have become millionaires.
Meyer gave some controversial and blasphemous quotes. She taught that Jesus Christ went to a burning hell and that he was born again through that process, as seen in her book “The Most Important Decision You’ll Ever Make”:
Jesus paid on the cross and went to hell in my place. Then as God had promised, on the third day Jesus rose from the dead. The scene in the spirit realm went something like this: God rose up from his throne and said to demon powers tormenting the sinless son of God, “let him go.” Then the resurrection power of Almighty God went through hell and filled Jesus. On earth his grave where they had buried him was filled with light as the power of God filled his body. He was resurrected from the dead–the first born again man.
She states that because Jesus was saved from hell that he was born again. It parallels us who were condemned wicked sinners who needed to be born again to escape hell.
So they put Him— that is, His body— in a grave, and His spirit went to hell because that is where we deserved to go… There is no hope of anyone going to heaven unless they believe this truth… Jesus went to hell for you.
Concerning these wealthy pastors, the Bible says in the last days there will be doctrines of devils. (1 Timothy 4), and that we are not to be ignorant of Satan’s devices (2 Corinthians 2). We must know about his devices as we draw closer to the Antichrist, New World Order, and One World Religion. The Bible foretells that churches will fall apostate. We can tell Meyer is definitely fallen, and we just barely scratched the surface.
But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. (Jude 10-16)
Number 9: Creflo Dollar – $27,000,000
He has $27 million to his name, which is three times what Meyer has. Dollar once wanted to buy a $65 million private jet for himself, claiming that he needed it to minister to the people out there. Dollar brushed off the criticism which followed, saying in a sermon,
“If I want to believe God for a $65 million plane, you cannot stop me. You cannot stop me from dreaming. I’m gonna dream until Jesus comes.”
Not only is it wickedness, but it also makes for an atrocious testimony. Dollar could easily preach while traveling coach or economy like other missionaries.
Number 8: Benny Hinn – $42,000,000
He has a net worth of $42 million. Pastor Kim once attended one of Hinn’s Brownsville revivals to see first-hand why he has so many followers. He noticed Hinn lies on television—they do not show everything, such as the insane portions of meetings.
During Pastor’s time there, Hinn had the same lady come forward and be healed three times of three separate ailments when there were a thousand others waiting for their turn.
A large gentleman also went forward for healing… for his weight problem. Hinn touched him, blew air at him, and the man fell over. The man’s similarly large girlfriend then went up, and Hinn asked her if she wanted to lose weight as well, to which she agreed in tears. The audience was chuckling as though it were a comedy show—but it was weird how they took the comedy seriously. They will go with the flow, aided by the soothing music and Hinn’s bright outward appearance. Mood setting in such a way is hypnotic and demonic.
One time Hinn said he had a target put on his head in Egypt by evangelical Christians. Pastor’s friends started clapping and shouting “amen”, and the rest of the attendants followed suit. Gene was amazed at their behavior, in how compliant they are.
Another time they were speaking in tongues and Pastor noticed a man chanting “abachaba abachaba” over and over. He guessed that he would copy him if he spoke in tongues louder than the man. Pastor screamed “ayayayayaya” and the man indeed copied him. The man changed his language suddenly. Perhaps the Holy Spirit was leading him? Jokes aside, definitely not.
The worst incident was when Hinn instructed the audience to hug each other and say “I love you”. A nearby lady turned to make eye contact with him, and even amid his apprehension, loudly proclaimed the words and vigorously squeezed him. She then turned to one of Pastor Kim’s friends but was scared away when he growled at her.
It was a total circus. It lasted 4 hours with no bathroom break, so as to maintain the atmosphere and keep control. They do not show these parts on TV. Pastor Kim had to plead the blood and pray for the filling of the spirit before attending.
Number 7: Chris Oyakhilome – $50,000,000
Some might not have heard of him, but he holds great influence now since Benny Hinn relies on him quite often. They collaborated to set up satellite TV. He has a net worth of $50 million.
It is necessary to understand that many millionaire pastors are Nigerian or of African descent. And how many are without food or in hardship in these countries? These pastors are wicked to squeeze money out of the poor.
Number 6: Pat Robertson – $100,000,000
Famous among liberals, his net worth is $100 million. In his TV broadcasts, he will frequently shut his eyes and visualize a person with, for example, half a leg. He would tell that person to sow seed money and claim he is healing that person.
Robertson is inside the 700 club, which has become well known from speaking against liberals. This is dangerous because people disillusioned with Obama and/or liberals would turn to TV preachers like Robertson and not to Bible Believers as their minister.
Watch out for Charismatic non-denominational churches.
Number 5: Emmanuel Makandiwa – $100,000,000
His net worth is around $100 million as well. It is upsetting and extremely infuriating that African millionaire pastors are so common. Africans are very soft-hearted towards the gospel, and Satan exploits this to steer them towards false churches. Makandiwa owns a luxurious house and private jet as well.
Number 4: Ayo Oritsejafor – $120,000,000
Another Nigerian pastor has a net worth of $120 million.
Number 3: T. D. Jakes – $150,000,000
We all know this preacher, and he’s one of the good ones (he’s not). What is upsetting is that he is a hypocrite. He condemns the preachers of Los Angeles in the flaunting of their luxury, and yet he is the third richest pastor on this list, with a net worth of $150 million. Where do these pastors receive their wealth from? It is insanity that so many people pay them.
It is unsurprising that T. D. Jakes once said in a Wall Street Journal article on his multi-million dollar religious empire:
“I am the power and the kingdom and the glory, and I think I kind of like it that way.”
Cross-reference that with what Jesus said in the Lord’s Prayer:
… For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (Matthew 6:13)
What T. D. Jakes said is truly satanic and sent from hell.
In 1998 November, People magazine described his $1.7 million Dallas home, blue BMW, and Mercedes. The Charleston Gazette published an article focusing on his $600k 16-room Charlotte mansion complete with an indoor bowling alley and swimming pool.
We do not believe in asking for money, and yet God has blessed us with sincere people who genuinely desire to help our ministry. It is a miracle we can survive in the expensive San Francisco Bay area.
Number 2: David Oyedepo – $150,000,000
It is hardly a surprise that this pastor is also Nigerian. He has a net worth of $150 million.
Number 1: Kenneth Copeland – $760,000,000
He has a net worth of $760 million because he begs a lot. He harps on the sowing of seed. What’s extremely upsetting about Copeland is that a liberal comedy show like John Oliver had to expose Copeland, and that was one of his most viewed videos on Youtube – a video outing heretical preachers to bash Christianity and shame our testimony. And he picked on the worst of the lot with Copeland. In the video, Oliver showed how a woman with cancer believed she had to have faith to be healed and kept giving money to Copeland even though she was hospitalized. Her daughter was visibly grieving and extremely upset against Christian churches and pastors, which culminated in her reporting to news outlets about how Copeland ravaged her mother’s life. Oliver then picked up on this and cussed out Christians, shaming them. Because of idiots like Copeland, the world does not want to follow Christianity.
Copeland also said something like what Joyce Meyer wrote:
“Jesus went into hell to free mankind from the penalty of Adam’s treason. When His blood poured out it did not atone…”
There are IFB antisemite post-tribulation pastors who teach this same heresy that Jesus fried in hell and that salvation is incomplete without it. The reason why Christianity is looked down upon is because of Charismatics, non-denominational, and sadly even so-called KJV fundamental Baptist pastors teach this kind of garbage. The world then associates every KJV fundamentalist Baptist pastor with these clowns.
Copeland further mentions,
“He was immediately cut off from his fellowship with the father and the light of God’s light and glory within him was snuffed out. For Jesus to become our substitute, he had to go through the same kind of separations. The scriptures verify it again and again; they tell us that he descended into the deep before he was brought up from the dead, and his soul was not left in hell, neither did his flesh see corruption. Not only did Jesus go to hell, he sank to the deepest, darkest part of it to suffer everything that was necessary on our behalf. We’ll be forever glad he did too because had he not gone to hell we would have to. For 3 days he suffered everything there is to suffer. Some people don’t want to believe that. They want to believe that Jesus just stayed in the upper region of Sheol that the Bible calls paradise, but they’re mistaken.”
Note how anti-dispensationalist “KJV” pastors share their trait of anti-dispensationalism with Copeland. Jesus went to the part of hell known as Abraham’s bosom to preach to the lost souls of hell, and you cannot preach while tortured in hell. It is blasphemy to say Jesus fried in hell. If Jesus had simply stayed at Abraham’s bosom, there would have been no price paid for sin.
We hope you are disgusted. There ought to be righteous indignation against these people and they deserve all the sarcasm and criticism they get. People criticize us for criticizing them, but we are non-apologetic. Their actions are truly revolting and corrupt. Did Elijah not criticize the prophets of Baal in asking them if their God went on a long journey? Did Christ not point out the Pharisees, that they strain at a gnat and swallow a camel?
For some who are curious about the other unmentioned big shots, or the “honorary mentions”: Joel Osteen (40 million), Billy Graham (25 million), Rick Warren (25 million), T.B. Joshua (Nigerian as well, 15 million).
About these people, the Bible mentions the lust of the flesh. They want to get money out of you and it’s wickedness. Jude warned about this during the last days. Are you part of a church in the last days that is falling into apostasy? We pray not.
