Popular televangelist and founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) Pat Robinson thinks that God has some big plans in store for him.
The 91 year-old minister announced that he is "planning" to live another 29 years--until he reaches 120 years of age.
This is because Robertson believes that God will allow him to live to the same age as Moses, or 120 years old.
This comment was in response to a question asked by a viewer on The 700 Club, a long-running Christian talk show hosted by Robertson.
On the show, an audience member asked Robertson why he had seemed so lively lately at his age.
Robertson responded that God was the reason for his youthfulness.
He then said:
"I'm an old guy. I'm 91-years-old. I'm tired. And I just feel the spirit of God come, and you know, it's the Lord's spirit. And by his spirit, he can just take an old hulk and make it into something good."
"And that's what you can do. You empty yourself and have him fill it. I don't know that it has anything to do with the Second Coming…For me, it may be a second coming…"
"I think he's going to give me another 29 years. That's what I'm planning on. Moses hit 120. I thought I could be that way."

Robertson is no stranger to making outlandish prophecies. In fact, he is widely known for his ridiculous predictions.
One of these predictions included that former U.S. President Donald Trump would win re-election in 2020 and would result in the "end of times", including a U.S. civil war and an asteroid strike that would end life on Earth as we know it.
In fact, Robertson has predicted the end of the world multiple times--once in 1982 and again in 2011--and predicted that the U.S. would experience "mass killings" due to a terrorist attack in 2007.
Needless to say, none of these predictions have come true.
Robertson has also been known to spread homophobic conspiracy theories.
In 2013, Robertson said on and episode of The 700 Club that he believed that gay men intentionally transmit HIV to people through "secret" rings that spread the virus through handshakes.
"I think people in the gay community, they want to get people. They'll have a ring, and you shake hands, and the ring has a little thing where you cut your finger."
"It is that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder."
He also said that the Black Lives Matter movement would lead to a "lesbian Marxist revolution."
People are having some pretty funny reactions to Robertson's newest prediction.

Considering that all of Robertson's past predictions have fallen through, it's probably a safe bet that he won't be living to the ripe old age of 120. Sorry, Pat!
