Christian TV Networks Prepare for Return of Jesus with 24/7 Camera Feed, iPhone App
Are you a busy, busy Christian who desperately wants to watch the return of Jesus Christ to Israel? But does your on-the-go lifestyle threaten to derail the most carefully laid Must See Jesus TV plans?
Well, you’re in luck! There’s an app for that.
According to The Los Angeles Times, both Daystar TV and the Trinity Broadcasting Network have set up cameras in studios overlooking the Mount of Olives, where scripture says the Christian Messiah will touch down one day. Both networks recently acquired studio space in Jerusalem as part of a miniature dust-up in their niche industry over who is doing more to preach the gospel to Jews.
Daystar in particular has been very aggressive in deploying their messaging on Israeli airwaves, having launched the first 24-hour Christian network in the country back in 2006. The network’s website also features a live video stream from the Mount of Olives that’s compatible with a host of mobile devices like iPhones, iPads, Androids and Blackberries — just in case viewers need to catch the Messiah’s return on the go.
One imagines that keeping a livestream of a hill in the Middle East would be murder on your phone’s battery life. Sorry heathen Blackberry users, no Jesus for you!
But in all seriousness, wouldn’t putting a camera on the other side of the hill scoop the hell out of these two stations? I mean, if a Jewish astronaut ghost was really going to ride a horse down from outer space onto a freaking hill, that is.
