Pastor T.D. Jakes After Meeting With President Bush-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
Pastor T.D. Jakes, a prominent
minister from Texas, was called to Washington D.C. to meet with President
Bush. When he returned, he told his congregation that he
couldn't reveal what the president had told him, but he warned that
they should stock up on bottled water, canned foods, and
nonperishable food items. He said that when war breaks out, it
will be a chemical war.
The Truth: According to his office at The Potter's House in Dallas, Pastor
Jakes did meet with the president on September 20, just before Mr.
Bush addressed Congress. It was not just the two of
them. There were leaders from a variety of faiths in the
meeting. In a statement, Pastor Jakes said he did encourage
the congregation to be prepared for emergencies by having food and
water supplies on hand. A spokesperson for Pastor Jakes said
he did not mention chemical weapons or war.

A real example of the story as it has
I got a phone call this evening from a real good friend of mine.
He has a friend who attends Bishop T. D. Jakes' church in Dallas
Anyway, President Bush contacted Bishop Jakes and wanted to
meet with him. Bishop Jakes flew to D.C., met with President
Bush and had this to report to his congregation. He said he
couldn't disclose the information the President shared with him, but he
warned his congregation and told them to contact as many family members
and friends they could and let them know to stock up on bottled water,
canned foods, and nonperishable food items.
The war, when it breaks out, will be a chemical war that will effect our
water system, electricity and crops. So, I'm sending out this
email message to everyone in my address book and encourage you to spread
I know when the media gets hold of this, the supermarkets will
have problems keeping their shelves
stocked. Also, please remember to pray. It's a shame that it took
the tragedy of the 11th to bring this nation back to God. But the
scripture still says, "If my people, that are called by my name
will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and
turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven
and will forgive their sins and heal their lands." As a
nation, we have turned our backs on God. We've taken it for granted that
we get up every morning and go about our busy work schedules and don't
even acknowledge him, except for times of trouble.
And also remember that even in the midst of this, God is still
in control. Be blessed.
