Coveting Blasphemers

From a hundred dollar seed to thousand dollar seed they entice the people with many words to give to them so they get a blessing. Lifting words out of context from the Bible, they become wordsmiths and change its meaning for their own gain.

Speaking of 3 billionaires, Copeland states “since I’m one of them it will only leave only 2 more”….but I’m not one of those three since I’m already am one, I’ve already appropriated and been walking in that a looong time… now don’t tell them senators this,… that last time we totaled it up which been some time ago this ministry since its been in operation 41 years this month… there has been over a billion, three come into this ministry since it went into operation (applause). He then says he is a billionaire not because of what came in but because the Lord said “I want you to confess the billion flow – as long as you were in the million flow you were winning millions you go into the billion flow you win billions” So I said yes sir , I believe and I receive it and its been number of years ago and I have confessed that I’m in the billion flow and that I am a billionaire In the kingdom of God” (audio on file).

This is what the church has done, they made one of the worst false teachers in its history- a billionaire. He has convinced himself that God told him to confess it into reality. I don’t think I need to go into the anti - Biblical teaching he is promoting as from God, one can read our archives.

But a sober reminder " And I say this with all respect so that it don't upset you too bad, but I say it anyway. When I read in the Bible where He says I AM, I just smile and say, 'Yes, I AM too.'" (Believers Voice of Victory broadcast July 9 1987)

Benny Hinn takes it even further by tellingChristians to chant "I AM." "Don't tell me you have Jesus. You are everything He was and everything He is and ever shall be.....Don't say, 'I have.' Say , 'I AM, I AM, I AM, I AM, I AM.' (Our Position in Christ #2-The Word Made Flesh audiotape Side 2 1991

That is exactly what the Bible calls blasphemy. It is God's enemies that apply his name to themselves for only they have that kind of arrogance. These mens sense of importance is completely out of proportion. These men's sense of importance is completely out of proportion.

In fact Jesus warned in Matthew 24:3-4. He says Many will come in my name saying,"1 am", or I am Christ. Meaning I am anointed.

2 Peter 2:14-16 "They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.  They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness."

peland is one of the biggest offenders of the church and continually distorts the word. He is someone who claims to teach the word, faith and its power. He said in prophecy at his Victory campaign in Dallas Texas that Jesus did not say he was ever the son of God, or God. Nearly word for word of William Branham who was also purposely saying this. BOTH are wrong. And If you are wrong on Jesus you are wrong on everything.

This Prophecy is by Kenneth Copeland to the Body of Christ at the Helena, MT Victory Campaign on May 10, 2002: Speaking of miracles “ by the end of June you will begin to hear of super-miracles, mega-moves of God that startle human minds and thinking”… There will be manifestations of the Holy Ghost suddenly appear on streets and in stores and in churches and different places around the world.”
“There's going to be a major change, major change. It's not going to be just the same old, same old. Major change is about to happen in the Middle East. Major, major change is about to happen in the Middle East, and don't even try--you can't figure it out. I'm running this, saith the Lord. That's my territory and that's my town and I'll run it how I see fit.

 ”We're in the greater works time right now. Right now, praise God, right now. And where a thousand got saved, there will be a million saved. Where there were ten thousand, there will be ten million. There are going to be days, single days before this year is up, where there will be over a million a day being brought into the kingdom of God as easily as before when a thousand people a day came in. And before the end of the year, it's going to be into numbers you can't even count.” From: http://www.kcm.org/studycenter/prophecies/mtvc.html

Copeland continues to prophesy and boast for God by giving people what they want to hear by training them to covet.  It does not matter that he includes a time element that does not come to pass...

“But There are going to be multiplied millions upon millions there’s going to be close to a billion people that have been trapped in that religion, that over the next few months are gonna to come into the kingdom of God. That’s gonna happen, you watch and see what I’m telling you (cheering) Because its been…I’m telling you Satan’s fat is in the fire he pushed it over the line, and God has moved… I’d to get in there and walk around a while but I don’t have the time but I can tell you this, that thing has come to an end, its over, I’m talking about Islam and every, all that that stands for. That’s over with.” (Word of Life Christian Center Honolulu Hawaii, dedication celebration service, evening service, Dec.2, 2001)

This war, particularly the way you know it now, is not going to last as long as everybody thinks it is because the major parts of it will come apart and fall. The deathblow has already happened to the nation of Islam. In My eyes, saith the Lord, it's already fallen and it is no more.” (Kenneth Copeland December 31, 2002 Eagle Mountain International Church)

Ask yourself- is this true? Is Islam gone? Are millions if not a billion saved? There are no excuses that can be made for these blatherskites that deliver a modicum of truth with an overflowing abundance of mendacious lies.

2 Peter 2:1-3 "Even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.  By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber."

Are you one of these? Think long and deep before you answer, for if you are supporting these obvious false teachers you receive the same, which is not a reward but JUDGMENT.
