Numerous persons have been declaring that Word of Faith leaders are in reality false teachers and false Christians deceiving the flock. My response has been that I need to see clear factual evidence that proves these charges. Now, I believe I have seen clear factual evidence that Kenneth Copeland is not a born-again Christian but a New World Order charlatan deceiving the flock.
Kenneth Copeland has received Tony Palmer. Tony Palmer is an emissary of the Catholic Church who says that all Christians are subject to the Vatican, the pope, and are Roman Catholic. This is indescribable evil. It denies the living reality of the Headship of Jesus Christ over the church as Savior and Lord replacing Jesus with the papacy. The Roman Catholic Church declares that itself as an institution is the means of salvation, not Jesus Christ our Lord. So, in effect, the Roman Catholic Church denies that Jesus Christ as God come to earth as a man who died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the third day is the Only Way of salvation.
I understand that born-again Christians are “involved” in the Roman Catholic Church. So, I would agree that Christians under seduction and deception may be external members of the Roman Catholic Church while truly being born of the Holy Spirit. I understand that some born-again Christians may still be trapped in the web of deception of Satan of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church as an institution of men.
Yet, God calls all true saints of God in Jesus Christ out of the Roman Catholic Church due to it’s institutional and papal apostasy. The Vatican itself and the pope are apostate in denying Jesus Christ as God and the Only Way of salvation: Jesus Christ the Only Way to God the Father. The Roman Catholic Church as an institution (the Vatican) has denied the Son in apostasy and has not the Father. The Roman Catholic Church as an institution, and thus the pope and Vatican, are apostate.
The evil is so great, that the last pope of the Roman Catholic Church is prophesied to be the false prophet who will usher in the antichrist as the false prophet of the Book of Revelation. Many Christians are testifying that this current pope, Pope Francis, is that false prophet prophesied in the Book of Revelation. Thus, Kenneth Copeland striving to unite those who follow and heed him to this hellish pope and Vatican is the level evil of blasphemy and apostasy. Ultimately, in the spirit of Satan, Kenneth Copeland is moving to unite those who heed and follow him with the antichrist through the false prophet as the harlot church of Babylon.
Kenneth Copeland has referred to this pope here, then here in the Believers Voice of Victory, as being “pro-unity” and “pro-renewal” as the unifier of the body of Christ. This apostate pope is currently acting, as the false prophet of the Book of Revelation, to unite all world religions including Islam through the Vatican. Evidence of this fruit and these deeds of Pope Francis, false prophet of antichrist, can be seen here in an article at infowars.com. I encourage all to read this article in full. Below is damning text from the article:
February 24, 2014
Is Pope Francis taking steps that are laying the groundwork for the emergence of a one world religion? If that question sounds quite bizarre to you, I urge you to read the rest of this article. We live at a time when globalization is advancing rapidly.Image: Pope Francis (Wikimedia Commons).
The global economy is more integrated than it has ever been before, and with each passing year new economic treaties tie us even more closely together. And “global governance” (as the elite like to call it) is also steadily gaining ground. Through a whole host of global institutions such as the United Nations, the World Bank, the IMF and the Bank for International Settlements, global governments are working together to a degree that is unprecedented. Well, what about religion? Is there evidence that we are also witnessing the globalization of religion? Well, yes there is. In fact, it appears that Pope Francis intends to lead the way.
Since he has been Pope, Francis has expressed a desire for unity with the Eastern Orthodox, the Anglicans, and many other major Protestant denominations. But more than a few eyebrows were raised when he recently sent a video message to Kenneth Copeland and his congregation. At the time that the video message was played to the congregation, one speaker declared that “Luther’s protest is over”…
“The Catholic and Charismatic Renewal is the hope of the Church,” exclaims Anglican Episcopal Bishop Tony Palmer, before a group of cheering followers at the Kenneth Copeland Ministries. Palmer said those words are from the Vatican. Before playing the video message from Pope Francis to Kenneth Copeland, Palmer told the crowd, “When my wife saw that she could be Catholic, and Charismatic, and Evangelical, and Pentecostal, and it was absolutely accepted in the Catholic Church, she said that she would like to reconnect her roots with the Catholic culture. So she did.”
The crowd cheered, as he continued, “Brothers and sisters,Luther’s protest is over. Is yours?”
Even Kenneth Copeland finds this development incredible: Said Copeland, “Heaven is thrilled over this…You know what is so thrilling to me? When we went into the ministry 47 years ago,this was impossible.”
You can see video from this conference right here.
So is Luther’s protest really over?
During the Council of Trent, the Catholics condemned to hell anyone that believes in salvation through faith in Jesus alone. This is a direct quote from the Council of Trent…
“If any one saith, that by faith alone the impious is justified; in such wise as to mean, that nothing else is required to co-operate in order to the obtaining the grace of Justification, and that it is not in any way necessary, that he be prepared and disposed by the movement of his own will; let him be anathema“
The Catholics have never renounced that stand. Instead, it has been reaffirmed many times over the years.
If Pope Francis really did want to reach out to Protestants, he should start by reversing the Council of Trent on this. As it stands, it is official Catholic doctrine that all Protestants are anathema.
But apparently that is not going to stop many Protestants from reuniting with Rome and declaring Francis to be “their Pope”.
Meanwhile, Pope Francis has also been aggressively courting Muslims. The following quote from Pope Francis comes from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting…
I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.
The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.
Did you catch that?
Apparently Pope Francis believes that Catholics and Muslims worship the same God.
More recently, Francis made the following statement about Muslims…
“We must never forget that they ‘profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, who will judge humanity on the last day.’”
By making this statement, Pope Francis is rejecting another of the most fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith.
So, what are we seeing here? We are seeing Kenneth Copeland moving to unite those who follow him to the Vatican and the false prophet pope. This pope, again, many are believing is the prophesied last pope who is the literal false prophet of the Book of Revelation who does false miracles for the literal antichrist of the Book of Revelation. I personally believe that Pope Francis is that last pope and the false prophet prophesied to come in the Book of Revelation. (Of course I am always open to the Lord correcting any perception I have. However, I am personally convinced of this for many scriptural and spiritual reasons including the emerging fulfillment of Bible prophecy in current events related thereto.)
The seriousness of Kenneth Copeland speaking to welcome Tony Palmer as an officer of the Roman Catholic Church is evil beyond measure. The seriousness of Kenneth Copeland, in concert with Tony Palmer, moving to unite those who follow the Copeland Ministry to the Vatican, Pope Francis, and the harlot church of Babylon is evil beyond measure. Ultimately, Kenneth Copeland is leading those who heed and follow him to worship the antichrist (and thus Satan) in end result. This is evil beyond measure in blasphemy and apostasy.
Tony Palmer invited Kenneth Copeland to the Vatican and Kenneth Copeland accepted the invitation. Additionally, in a recent meeting, Kenneth Copeland played a videotape to Copeland followers in which Pope Francis personally spoke to call all of the charismatic church to the Vatican and the apostate Roman Catholic Church. Kenneth Copeland thus joined hands clearly with the devil, the antichrist, the false prophet, and the 666 beast system. Kenneth Copeland revealed himself to be a New World Order charlatan in Catholic alliance with the harlot church of one world religion.
This videotape of Pope Francis speaking to the meeting held and officiated by Kenneth Copeland was specifically taped for presentation at this meeting. The pope taped the video to specifically address the Kenneth Copeland gathering. Pope Francis, in that videotape produced for Kenneth Copeland and his ministry, issues forth a global call for all charismatics to unite with the Vatican, the harlot church, the devil, the false prophet, and the antichrist.
Now The End Begins (NTEB) is a blog and ministry that shares news and views of the fulfillment of endtime prophecy. NTEB has spoken on this topic of Kenneth Copeland in a post titled “False Teacher Kenneth Copeland Wants To Unite With The Catholic Church” that can be seen here.
The scripture tells us we cannot serve two masters. We will love the one and despise the other. Kenneth Copeland has made it irrefutably clear that his allegiance is to the devil, the antichrist, the false prophet, the harlot church, and the New World Order. The “shepherd mask” has been removed by God to reveal Kenneth Copeland as a literal satanist wolf in sheep’s clothing. Inwardly, he is a ravenous wolf. It is made abundantly clear that in Kenneth Copeland’s true inner being at the core of his heart, he hates, denies, and rejects Jesus Christ… no matter what empty words he mouths.
The scripture tells us that at the return of Jesus, many will say, “Lord, Lord,… have we not prophesied in your name and in your name done many marvelous works?!” Jesus will declare to them, “I never knew thee. Depart from me ye that work iniquity.”
