“For years currently, Jim has been functioning non-stop, working hard to bring unbelievable prophets and also visitors to our program, uncovering and also establishing new items to share … as well as generating the message for the days that we are residing in,” his wife, Lori, created in a recent Facebook message. “All of these jobs, as well as the vigorous war that we have actually experienced in the last a number of weeks, have taken a big toll on Jim’s health and wellness.”
Lori Bakker added that her hubby’s break from job comes with the guidance of doctor as well as his board of supervisors.

Bakker was recently under fire for advertising a coronavirus cure on his program titled “Silver Solution,” which New York State Attorney General Letitia James purchased him to halt in very early March. Lisa Landau, chief of the Health Care Bureau of the New York Attorney General’s Office, stated in a letter to Bakker that the World Health Organization “has noted that there is no specific medication to treat this condition or prevent. Therefore, any kind of depiction on The Jim Bakker Show that its Silver Solution items are effective at combating and/or treating the 2019 novel coronavirus violates New York legislation.” Four days later on, the state of Missouri filed a lawsuit versus Bakker and his manufacturing business for selling the treatment.
Formerly, Bakker offered time in federal jail after being founded guilty of fraud in connection to his Praise The Lord (PTL) Club program, which featured Jim as well as his now ex-wife Tammy Faye Bakker. The pair divorced in 1992.
