Ex-U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) warned Wednesday that Jesus is “coming soon,” making the task of converting the masses – particularly Jews – even more urgent.
“We recognize the shortness of the hour,” Bachmann said in a radio interview with Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council. The duo recorded the interview during their tour of Israel, which was organized by FRC.
The one-time Republican presidential candidate continued: “That’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can – even among the Jews – share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, He’s coming soon.”
Bachmann also said violence in Israel shows the second coming of Christ is imminent, and “events are speeding up…we’re seeing the fulfillment of scripture right in front of our eyes.” Bachmann called the country “a miracle of the hand of God.”
Bachmann, who unsuccessfully ran for the Republican nomination in 2012, has long been a doomsayer, and she accused President Obama of hastening the Rapture with his Mideast policy earlier this year.
