HEAVEN — In a statement Thursday, the Almighty clarified that his message to Jesse Duplantis about buying a new $54 million jet was intended to be satire.
“It was a poignant lampoon of the prosperity gospel message,” said a heavenly spokesperson. “It’s always a hoot when people take satire literally. But really, the humor should have been obvious.”
According to the celestial press office, the part where He said “do you want to come up where I’m at,” implying that God was physically sitting in the upper atmosphere, was supposed to be a dead giveaway that it should not be taken seriously.
The spokesperson explained that the Creator would like any funds received in this effort to be used to feed the poor.
