                          The Spirit of Anti Christ “in the Church” (linked audio clips)

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons”(1 Timothy 4:1). Paul warns us that at the end of the age inside the church there will be teachings of demons. That it will be extremely dangerous to believers who do not know the word correctly and do not watch what they are being taught.

The Devil has tailor made deceptions for every church, he knows their weaknesses and propensities to do wrong in certain areas. He will use whomever he can in whatever capacity he can to bring confusion, falsehoods and destruction. He is of high intelligence, power and

Some people are deceived by not having the knowledge of the truth to discern what is being introduced as false, they do not care to hear a different view that may challenge them. How do you tell the difference? It is how they respond to the word. They will either ignore what the word says and continue listening to the false teacher of their liking and stay as willing subjects to be manipulated to their own destruction, or they will react by acknowledging they were wrong and repent, getting right with God.

In one sermon Jesse Duplantis will show how much distortion and abuse he can cram into his fast speaking production of God making man from the earth. He implies that he checked in with the Lord “Can I give em’ that” and got the okay to say this. So this is God approved. He starts to explain I got some revelation of a speaking spirit.

“God said Let us make man and breathed into his nostrils and man became a living soul, let me Gen.2:7, in the Hebrew man because a speaking spirit – speak spirit. What is God a speaking spirit… you ever thought what Adam looked like when God formed his body out of the dust of the ground? He was a grey lifeless mass of dirt….Duplantis then interject his revelation telling a story of how blessed he was to see the Pope in the Vatican when he visited Rome. He refers to the lapieta of Michael Angelo being a marble statue… They asked him how he did it. That’s easy I just took away the excess. “That’s a speaking spirit” speak spirit - took only ---that God can do…. You know what Adam looked like, He was a manikin, he was just dirt, nothing in him. … God took him by the nose and did this (blowing noise) … and Adam did this, came alive. And God said speak spirit. Created the express image of God. Now you can understand; see the translators had a problem with Psalm 8 what is man that thou are mindful of him and the son of man that thou visited him. Man and the son of man are in the same verse… God had made him a little lower, O Lord, then they wouldn’t translate it the way it was put, they said they are going to kill us, its called heresy; that thou has made him a little lower than the angels. But it doesn’t say that, it says this, God has made him a little lower than God. You know why? Because You see mankind is a speaking spirit. Do you know we are the only species on the earth that can destroy it. Only a spirit can destroy this planet… no animal can destroy this planet, not even the dinosaurs, but a man can. Because he has been given dominion over all the works of God, because he is a speaking spirit. That’s why God said if you will say to that mountain, say something boy speak spirit. And that was Adam like a manikin and when God breathed into him he could have created the whole race but he didn’t… he made a man and a woman and he said you all create… God was a sculptor he sculpted Adam out of the dirt,… when God finished he breathed life and all of sudden he’s a speaking spirit, are you ready for this. God didn’t quit forming stuff out of the dust he created all kinds of animals but he didn’t know what they was, ‘what was that’, I have no idea what, you want me to prove it let me prove it to you God made animals but didn’t have the foggiest idea what they were. You don’t believe that, turn with me to Genesis chapter 2. I’ll show you sumptin’, you think I’m jokin’, I’ll show you something right now. “O Lord let me finish this tonight…

Genesis chapter 2, God made a horse and didn’t have foggiest idea what the horse was, made a horse out of the dirt standing there like a manikin, look at me, looka, had no idea what it was. He just sculptured it. You don’t believe me I’ll prove it to you. Gen.2:19.
Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every fowl of the air, and brought them to look at me look at me, he didn’t walk them- he didn’t fly them- he brought them, watch me, pick it up bring it over there, he brought them, watch this - unto Adam to see what he would call them. He didn’t know what it was, he just made something and said what do you think that is Adam. Adam’s a speaking spirit, he said that’s a horse (makes a horse noise) Hey Adam. Do you know they were not alive when he brought them… they were just like Adam was. Adam was created in the image of God he was a speaking spirit like God is. Let me just show ya Let me just show ya …watch this, and out of the ground v.19 the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every fowl of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatsoever Adam called every what, living, they weren’t alive, they were just like him, formed out of the dust of the ground and God looked at Adam and said SPEAK SPIRIT! Whatcha gonna call them, that’s a horse (makes sound)…  he picked them up and brought them and he named 500,000 species (ed. Really 500,000 – in one day? Maybe Adam was a faster talker than Jesse) and life came to them and he gave you creative ability and he says produce life. Look at your bible and what he called them every living, they were just like Adam, manikins formed, God didn’t know what they were,…when he spoke, speak spirit, pow species life, because he had life in him, its like he said Adam do what I do, …” (audio portion)

One needs to keep in mind that Duplantis claims to have gone to heaven and saw God on the throne creating human spirits. Duplantis makes God into a buffoon depending on Adam. The Bible explains that God is unlimited in knowledge; He knows all things before he commences to work on them. It is Man that is limited in his knowledge and needs to learn. Duplantis has switched it. There is nothing funny or for one to be entertained by this, its just plain heresy.

Duplanitis’ point is to prove that man is equal to God because he could speak life, it was man that gave life and named the animals for God who had no idea what he made. So God dragged the manikin carcasses of all the animals before this speaking spirit called Adam to exercise his authority as god. Duplantis subtly introduced the heresy using the term speaking spirit numerous times as a way to have them accept it.

So he makes Adam the creator of life. A creature who to be given life and was actually made AFTER the animals. Funny that God had to make a helper for Adam and Adam did not do this himself.
The Hebrew is clear that God made the animals that were already alive go before Adam to name them, he did not make them alive by speaking their species names.
Gen 1:24: Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so.” This is before man was made from the same ground.
Gen 2:3: “Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”

But I don’t see anywhere where Adam is included. Duplantis makes the word of God into a false record by his own revelation on Genesis. In fact, when Jesse tells people to look at their Bibles they should or they will be deceived by HIM.

Gen 6:7 So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
My Bible says God made it all and gave all life by his spirit, not by Adam, and there are just too many Scriptures to cite for this. Col. 1:16 “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.(Eph. 3:9 “God who created all things through Jesus Christ” Rev.4:11; 10:6 )

1 Cor. 15:44-49 it explains, “the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth (Adam), made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven.” In other words only Jesus is like God, not Adam. We are told
V.47 It is Jesus who is The Lord from heaven. He is the creator and giver of life not Adam. V.49 “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, (Adam) we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.” When we are transformed into the new man in the resurrection. Incorruptible, immortal 1 Cor. 15:50.

Col 1:15 “He is the image of the invisible God”, “who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person” (Heb 1:3). Why? Because Jesus is unique, “For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Col. 2:9). Jesus is the only image of God, being God himself in human form.

All this proves is that these men copy each others false revelations and spread their myths as if they had a revelation. Duplantis is mimicks Creflo Dollar who said, “when God made man all he did was take a reflection of himself… So he said let us make another speaking spirit. When God made Adam all he did was make an exact imprint of hisself. He duplicated himself, he was the image and from his image came hisself…( Creflo Dollar Our equality with God through Righteousness 1/21/2001).

Creflo says God made another speaking spirit in Adam

Duplantis continues:“…Verse 19, chapter 2, look at that “and out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast,” now notice again, He formed the body out of the dust. “out of the ground He formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air. “and brought them unto Adam to see what he, Adam, would call them”. And whatsoever Adam called every living creature that was the name thereof. Now here’s what happened folks. God made the physical bodies of the animals out of the ground. But they didn’t live, until Adam called them. [congregation : laughter]. Wait, wait. How do I know this? How do I know this? Let’s just look at what I already said. I’m training a god of the earth. I got to teach him to do what I do. You going to have authority over these animals. There’s going to be a reason why you have authority over these animals. Because they won’t live until you call them. So like I formed a physical body out of the dust of the ground and called you into existence. Now, come on son, let Me show you how to do what I do. Call it. And Adam said Buffalo! A buffalo jumped up…he’s breathing life into that which he has authority over” (ibid.)  

Creflo Dollar Audio Adam was responsible for creating the animal class)

However, Creflo got this from Copeland? Copeland explains Gen. 2:15 and how Adam made all the animals alive.

So the passed down heresy goes from Copeland to Dollar to Duplantis. This is such a distorted cultic teaching of Duplantis and Dollar and Copeland that it should be immediately repelled by people not embraced. Christians should not be entertained by lies and half truths.

The BIBLE says:
John 1:4-5 “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” The key: darkness does not understand the uniqueness of Christ Jesus.
John 5:26: "For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself.”

Only the Son has life in himself; not Adam and not us who have the image of God. Word faith distorters use the Scripture that we “give life to the dead and calls things into existence that are not” This verse does not say this about us but about God. Rom 4:17: “God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did”

Duplantis deceives the people in a joking fashion and they are entertained by his lies.

The Bible says God named all the stars (trillions) but we are to believe hew could not name the animals. The Bible asks, Who is like him … Jesse, Creflo and Kenny (and numerous others) think they are. "Who is like You, O LORD, among the gods? (false gods) Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? (Exod. 15:11).
Isa. 40:13: “Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD, or as His counselor has taught Him?”
Rom. 11:33-34: “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!" For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?"

What kind of God is this they present to the Church? A God who needs Adam because he cannot complete a task.
Copeland declares “Adam, in the Garden of Eden, was God manifested in the flesh." (TBN, Kenneth Copeland, Following the Faith of Abraham I, side 1)
Isa. 40:25: "To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal?" says the Holy One.”
Isa. 46:5: "To whom will you liken Me, and make Me equal and compare Me, that we should be alike?”
Man? Adam?

Creflo likewise says - Adam was god on the earth

Mormonism had the Adam God theory before these men. As Joseph Smith said “you have got to learn how to be Gods yourselves, … the same as all gods have done before you...To inherit the same power, the same glory and the same exaltation, until you arrive at the station of God” (Joseph Smith, History of the Church, Vol. 6, page 306). I revealed to them, and which God revealed to me namely that Adam is our father and God .... Our father Adam helped make this earth “Brigham Young, Deseret News, 6/16/1873). Young referring to the founder said, “Joseph said that Adam was our Father and God (Brigham Young, Journal History of the Church, May 14, 1876). there is but one God that pertains to this people, and He is the Lord that pertains this earth--the first man. That first man sent his own son to redeem the world. (Heber C. Kimball, Journal of Discourses, 4:1) The word faith teaching is nothing new Mormon Elder B.H. Roberts stated, “Man has descended from God; in fact, he is the same race as the Gods.” (Course of Study for Priests, 1910, p. 35). 

Creflo Dollar states That God duplicated himself in Adam

So we see Mormonism that denies the core teachings of Christ in His nature and salvation taught this before these men teaching word faith got their revelation. Furthermore, the Jehovah’s Witnesses demote Jesus to being a god, a god in a different class than the almighty. What’s the difference between the Jehovah Witnesses view of Jesus being a mighty god and the word faith teaching of man realizinmg his powers as a god. NONE- they both think of Jesus as a creature. consider Mr. Copeland "You don't have a God in you. You are one!" (TBN Kenneth Copeland, The Force of Love audiotape)
Creflo mimicking his mentor says you are god as well

You must decide--Did Satan lie or tell the truth? The ancient lie were the first words uttered to man by a creature other than God, an angel… Jesus said that this angel (Satan a fallen angel) was a liar from the beginning. Jesus said ‘He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.”(John 8:44). He will kill you just as he did with Eve convincing her to eat the fruit so that "your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God." (Gen 3:5) you will be like God just like He fell when he said “I will be like the Most High” (Isa. 14:14). It was this angel that first proclaimed he would be like God. And it continues by those that have made God defying statements about themselves and Adam.

They are exalting a creature as God. Making the comparison of Adam being God, as Jesus was God. I refer you to the warning of Rom.1 of those who left the true knowledge. Rom 1:25: “who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”

But they also exalt themselves as the bible describes the Antichrist will one day.

Creflo says- he rebukes Satan because he is the Lord his God like Jesus.

This is not Christianity it is Satanic and for those who still want to be courteous to men who speak such blasphemies against the god of Gods, they need to understand whom they are siding with.

Jn. 2:21-22: “I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ.” Jesus is the only man with God in the flesh, the same in nature as the Father. 1 Tim.3:16: “God was manifested in the flesh,” once, that is Jesus.  When one says Adam was or any other they are speaking not from the Holy Spirit but the spirit of a counterfeit messiah, the spirit of Anti Christ. We are to know the truth and not know a lie.

I Jn. 4:2-3 “By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.”
John is saying Jesus is the only God/man. There is no other man that is God come in flesh. If they are teaching contrary to this they have the spirit of ANTICHRIST.

To call oneself, or another human being God is what the Bible labels as blasphemy. They accused Jesus was doing this but they did not understand that he alone was allowed to, for he was God that came as man.

2 Thess. 2:3-4 “the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
Saying Adam was God because he is made in the (exact) image of God, is denying Christ as the only God come in the flesh, it is substituting another creature. Jesus is the only human being God came in the flesh by - 1 Tim.3:16: “God was manifested in the flesh,” only once, in Jesus. To say Adam was God in the flesh before Jesus is exactly what John is addressing here, this is more serious than error, it is heresy; John says it is the spirit of antichrist.

The spirit of iniquity is mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 states, “For the mystery of iniquity (lawlessness) is already at work: only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.” The Holy Spirit in the believers, in the Church now restrains (hinders, prevents) the Antichrist from revealing himself. Paul says the mystery - the spirit was already at work in his day, and will one day reach its climax in a single man.  

God instills humility in us, not pride. The Anti-Christ does not come as some Devil but as a lamb “he had two horns like a lamb and speaks like a dragon” (Revelation 13:11-12). An antichrist spirit will do the same, exalt man. Listen carefully to what the word faith teachers speak on man and you will know what the anti Christ will be like.
This is such audacity, pride, to exalt man to be as the creator. This is something Christian cults would be ashamed to speak. But it is certainly what New ager’s, theosophists and Occultists speak of. When a church no longer resists infiltration of non biblical new age practices they will be carried away quickly as a flood by opening the door to lies.

Why does a church allow men teach what cults do? Something that was never said in the Bible or church history? It is the antichrist spirit that has you confess you are a little god.

We are gods, Adam is god!…gods that worship a God. How does that work when worship is an act of dependence and reliance, to thank the one whom rules over ones life. We are sinners being conformed to be like Christ who is our master and Lord, he is the ONLY one. As soon as you lose this perspective you will have pride.

Creflo teaches- My spirit is just like God. This is Gnosticism, not Christian doctrine.

What is the antichrist and the spirit of antichrist? “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; 2 Thess. 2:4 ........(the anti-Christ)...so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons”(1 Timothy 4:1). Paul warns that inside the church will be teachings of demons. Nothing is more obvious than calling men (Adam) god, Satan’s goal is to teach self-deification to man just as he tried with Adam and Eve.
But doesn’t it says in Ps. 82:6 we are gods… is God confused what he says on this, or are YOU?

What does the true God say to those who want his title, power and ability who want to be as equals.
Ezek. 28:2 “Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God”
Deut. 4:35: “Unto thee it was showed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.
Deut. 4:39: “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.”
Isa. 43:10:“that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.”
Isa. 44:6: “I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”

Isa. 45:5 :“I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me”
Isa. 45:22: “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” No Mormon gods, no Word Faith gods, no other but the actual Eternal God can save. If you claim to be a god then you have forfeited salvation because the first act of true worship is acknowledge that the real eternal God saved you.

God says He knows of no other Gods – do you believe God? I am the lord thy God you shall have no othert.
Jer.10:11: “The God’s that have not made heaven and earth will perish” This includes any other God that would apply to themselves a small g or a big G.


The LIE that man is God is in the church and must be exposed.
