Dallas megachurch pastor and entrepreneur T.D. Jakes usually doesn’t make declarations or predictions for the new year.

But the year 2010 is different.

In a video message, The Potter’s House pastor said he expects 2010 to be a year of “double portion.”

Considering the global economic slump that many have suffered through over the past year or so, Jakes sees light at the end of a tunnel.

“The Bible is not mystical about loss. It’s just the modern day teachers that we have today that led us down the wrong path to thinking that there would be no challenges,” he noted. “The Bible has always been clear that there would be losses. But He promised to restore the years [of] cankerworms.”

Alluding to a biblical passage in the Old Testament book of Joel, Jakes called 2009 a year when cankerworms, palmerworms and locusts ate into people’s resources, retirements and homes. But just as Joel prophesied in the Bible, Jakes believes God will restore in the new year what was taken away.
