Bachmann Warns: Rapture Coming Soon, So Convert As Many Jews As Possible

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
