644-656 – • Mediaite (1/4/2011) Pat Robertson's 2011 Divine Prediction: America "Is In Grave Peril".  Video.

(2:01) Pat Robertson, Monday 1/3/2011 on 700 Club, giving his annual predications. (This is what the Lord said.  'Your country is in grave peril.  The leaders have harkened to the demands of interest groups and have led your nation into bankruptcy.  In two years will come a time of reckoning.  Your creditors will demand payment, and there will not be enough to satisfy their claims. Your currency will shrink in value; your bonds will lose value. People on fixed incomes will suffer. Unemployment will escalate, and there will be turmoil. I will protect my people, but warn them now about what is coming. Tell them to get out of debt and restrict purchases now.  My glory will shine throughout the Earth.  Everywhere men will be seeking solutions to their problems.  Many will turn to me, many will curse and revile me.  It will not be a time of happiness. Bitter recriminations, revolutions, increasing turmoil.  In the midst of that, CBN will prosper, Regent (Robertson's university) will prosper, and the ACLU (Robertson's legal group) will be needed as never before.  [He's corrected, he meant to say ACLJ].  And God's going to give us extraordinary miracles. It's going to be another good year for CBN, but it's going to be tough for the world."

• The Daily Caller (1/4/2011) Pat Robertson shares his predictions for 2011.

// The next president, Robertson added, "will preside over an impoverished nation" in 2012. He also referred to the next president as "a man," perhaps irking supporters of former Alaska governor and possible Republican presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

"Oh, there's something else the Lord said," Robertson noted at the end of his interview. According to the 79 year-old ex-Baptist minister, God is "not going to let men destroy the world with nuclear bombs."

Robertson has previously predicted a devastating tsunami hitting the Pacific Northwest in 2006, a massive terrorist attack in 2007, and Christ's return to earth "by the end of 1982."
