Rick Perry Pal: Oprah is Triggering the Antichrist

Oprah Winfrey can be a polarizing figure. But is she leading the United States toward the End Times and the rise of the Antichrist? That’s the argument put forth by Mike Bickle, founder of the Kansas City-based International House of Prayer (IHOP), and official endorser of Texas Governor Rick Perry’s prayer and fasting festival scheduled for early August in Houston’s Reliant Stadium. As we’ve noted before, Perry’s rally, which organizers say is intended in part to convert non-Christians to Christianity, has come under fire because of the controversial views of some of its sponsors. Now, via Right Wing Watch (which has been all over this story), here’s footage of Bickle at IHOP explaining where Oprah fits in the Book of Revelation.

“I believe that one of the main pastors, as a forerunner to the Harlot movement, it’s not the Harlot movement yet, is Oprah. She is winsome, she is kind, she is reasonable, she is utterly deceived, utterly deceived. A classy woman, a cool woman, a charming woman, but has a spirit of deception and she is one of the clear pastors, forerunners to the Harlot movement.”

Watch it here:

So now that Oprah’s no longer doing Oprah, does that mean we’re in the clear? The public has a right to know.
