Kenneth Copeland, The Pope & Catholicism – Update

News___INSIDE_EDITION_Investigates_TV_Ministers__Lifestyles_pastor_wrapsI’ve been to the KCM FB page and observed a person making a very important post.

It is obvious that Kenneth Copeland is caught in a web.

The video of Tony Parker, and then the Pope is an unmistakeable attempt to join catholicism with protestants. But the response is rather interesting from KCM. I’m sure it was a close staffer and not KC himself, unless I’m mistaken.

The first post is from an individual that pointed out the breach. 

★★★☆☆ Well I have to be honest and am sure this will be removed. I grew up watching Kenneth Copeland and always have respected him as a very anointed man of god. But in this dire time while prophecy is unfolding at an alarming pace and so many are being misled we must follow the Holy Spirit. I am wary to continue following a beloved man of God after watching him endorse the Pope in the misleading of believers that there can be a unity of all religions that is not under Jesus Christ. So I will continue to follow warily as the spirit leads and watch for more information.

This is the response from KCM.

Kenneth Copeland Ministries Hello Kris, thank you for sharing your thoughts. Brother Copeland did not endorse the pope or the Roman Catholic Church. He was simply asked to pray as a believer for him. In addition, I have attached a link to our blog about this matter for your review:

Watch Pope Francis’ Message Calling for Unity in the Body of Christ
kennethcopelandministries.org
On Jan. 21, 2014, Kenneth Copeland Ministries was blessed to receive a personal video message from Pope Francis. The attendees of KCM’s annual Ministers’ Conference.

It is clear in the video that there was no need Kenneth Copeland to outright say that “I endorse the pope and catholicism.”

To have Tony Parker preach at the Eagle’s Nest Church in Fort Worth, Texas, Copeland’s deliberate calculated response, and the viewing of the pope’s response, is a clear endorsement.

We must remember that the system of Catholicism is not Biblical. To stand shoulder to shoulder with the system of Catholicism is a clear violation of the Scripture. It is a declaration of treason to the Word of God. This is the problem with Catholicism.

Works versus Grace.

There is no question in our minds that the differences are there and to completely ignore them just to have a little “unity” is not what the Lord Jesus intended.

Major doctrinal differences exist and there is no reconciling of these differences unless the system concede to the Word of God given to us by the Holy Spirit in the work of Martin Luther, William Tyndale, and John Wycliffe and others.

Go back over the video of Tony Parker and you will see that there is no concessions from the Catholic system. The burden of concession was placed on Christians that believe that salvation is by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

It doesn’t take much for us to see that in an emotionally charged service, people will not wake up from such emotions to stick with the truth of God’s Word. That’s why Proverbs 14:15 stands true.

“The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps.”

The Message Bible says this verse as a paraphrase.

“The gullible believe anything they’re told; the prudent sift and weigh every word.”

And that’s the spirit of the charismatic circles and WOF (Word of Faith) circles. You could read the Word of God without prudence and considering well your steps and step into something that you can’t or refuse to wipe off. Hypnotized and mesmerized in a spiritually (more like an emotionally) charged atmosphere, an unsuspecting believer will walk into a bear trap and ignore the pain after the trap snaps shut.

In the video, Kenneth Copeland did pray for the pope as requested but Kenneth Copeland prayed…………..in other tongues.

Let me take the time to address the use of tongues. I realize that there are believers that do not believe in the speaking with tongues, so please bear with me.

There is two ways to understand tongues.

1. Other tongues as in Acts 2:4.

2. The gift of tongues as in 1 Corinthians 12:10.

Other tongues is the personal prayer life of the believer that is initially filled with the Holy Spirit.

The gift of tongues is given by the Holy Spirit and requires the gift of interpretation (not translation of languages).

 

There are three categories of the gifts of the Spirit.

1. The Utterance Gifts or gifts that say something under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

a. Gift of Tongues.

b. Interpretation of Tongues.

c. Prophesy. (Edification, edification, comfort 1 Corinthians 14:3).

 

2. The Power Gifts or gifts that does something under the direction of the Holy Spirit.

a. The Gift of Faith.

b. The Working of Miracles.

c. Gifts of Healings.

 

3. The Revelation Gifts or gifts that uncover something under the direction of the Holy Spirit.

a. The Word of Wisdom (Regarding people places and things of the future).

b. The Word of Knowledge (Regarding people, places, and things of the past or present only).

c. Discerning of spirits (Regarding seeing things in the realm of the spirit-visions/dreams).

 

The tongues that Kenneth Copeland was using required Interpretation of tongues but it appears he was just praying in other tongues which he should have been praying to himself and unto God.

Nothing wrong with that except there is a place in Scripture that governs such use of tongues in a service or even in private with other believers.

Here is what Paul said about it.

1 Corinthians 14:6-14

“But now, brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you unless I speak to you either by revelation, by knowledge, by prophesying, or by teaching? Even things without life, whether flute or harp, when they make a sound, unless they make a distinction in the sounds, how will it be known what is piped or played? For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?

So likewise you, unless you utter by the tongue words easy to understand, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air. There are, it may be, so many kinds of languages in the world, and none of them is without significance.

Therefore, if I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be a foreigner to him who speaks, and he who speaks will be a foreigner to me. Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel.

Therefore let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.”

So just as Paul shared, it was never known what was spoken and there is much speaking into the air. In other words, without meaning, significance, or purpose. Just a lot of noise.

Since there was no understanding of what was prayed over the pope, at best we pray that common sense would prevail over this debacle.

If, after watching the video that you didn’t get a sense of being uncomfortable about how they went about this, perhaps you need to read the history on Catholicism.

I am not denying the fact that we all need prayer and that we are to pray.

Having said this, in looking at the response from KCM, it appears that there is a clear avoidance of the issue.

There was more to it than just praying for the pope……and KCM knows it, otherwise, there would be no need to have Tony Parker preach a message about Protestants coming back to Catholicism.

Tony Parker’s message is crucial to win the other KCM partners to accept Catholicism as a safe place to associate. This is nothing more than Babylon pulling in unsuspecting ministers and ministries to further dilute the power of the gospel by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

Just like the lead ant (scout) that goes, when he signals to the others that it is safe, the other ants will follow.

Then, at the end of the praying in tongues, Kenneth Copeland asks Tony Parker to video tape a message in response to the pope’s response.

Words to the effect that “We are prepared to meet with you for an audience with you, sir.”

Now, if there was no endorsement, why have an audience with the pope? When it comes to the system of catholicism, it goes crosswise of the Bible, and we know it.

Unless in that audience with the pope, Kenneth Copeland is prepared to communicate the unflinching position of God’s grace by faith, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, such a meeting will be viewed as a clear compromise of epic proportions.

So the FB response to a comment by KCM avoids the issue and is a clear deflection of the issue at hand.

As I’ve said in one blog…..“Direct questions requires direct answers.”

The further enveloping of charismatic Christians to surrender the protest and come under the system of the whore of Babylon is an unavoidable goal because of the end times.

We must also remember that the first charismatics were from the Catholics in the 1960’s.

The very elect is being deceived or we are seeing Jude 4 play out before our eyes.

How could this be resolved?

The resolution of this is very simple.

Repentance.

To bring you past information, here is a post from this blog posted by EXMinistries with G. Craige Lewis and Tetaun Moffett.

MEGAFEST: The Aftermath

Once again, EXMinistriesTV with G. Craige Lewis and Tetaun Moffett preached the Word of God to rebut those that defend an indefensible position.

The goal again is to point out the many clear inconsistencies that plague the Body of Christ. So many of our main platform prominent preachers are refusing to make a clear stand regarding the Scripturally established demarcation demanded by the Lord in the Word of God.

Lasciviousness is in full swing in these camps that the unsuspecting is falling in record numbers. When you can make an excuse not to preach the gospel, you are ashamed of the Savior. You have denied Him and those that deny Him must expect to be denied before the Father in heaven. The fame of the world has a price.

Denial before the Father.

As a result, the people in the assemblies of God are swallowing the seemingly tasteless, odorless drink of poison. Not realizing that the devil is the one serving this concoction of false truth mixed with lies.

Yet, the people drink it like Kool Aid……………Jim Jones style.

On the OWN Network, Oprah had her “Life Class” and you could see that it was all about Oprah.

When you watch the interview with TD Jakes, you will see that there was no question that the ecumenical spirit has fully engulfed TD Jakes. Once you have crossed the line, you are under the spell of “seducing spirits and doctrine of devils.”

The devils will teach you what to say to defend and indefensible position.

Not true all the time, but I am not, nor will I be surprised.

A few years ago, the Spirit of God shared that more prominent ministers will be exposed in sex scandals. Usually, when you are under the sway of seducing spirits, sometimes, not all the time, sexual immorality is part of the seduction. So, when these preachers come out with their sex scandals, bisexual scandals, and other Secret Sexual Sins, the Spirit of God warned you.

And as usual, with most sexual scandals, the people will scatter and wander around. Disillusioned because they didn’t expect their leader to sin sexually. As with the children of Israel when they engaged in idol worship in the Canaanite high places, sexual immorality was part of their pagan ritual. So it is today. In some camps where prominent leaders exist, the pagan rituals, coupled with sexual immorality will follow them.

One thing about “haters” that I appreciate with the definition of it in this episode. This is a well used tactic of LGBT. When you speak against the sin of homosexuality, you will not be tolerated. The hypocrisy in LGBT is clear. They are tolerant of sin but intolerant of righteousness.

This same spirit has carried over into certain segments of the lewd members that falsely profess faith in Jesus. When the light of the glorious gospel shines on their sin to be exposed, they are quick to call you a hater.

I AM A HATER…………of every thing that God hates.

God hates sin and if you claim to be a believer and you do not hate sin on His level, you are a lover of satan and a true hater of God.

James 4:4-10 says

“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”?

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double- minded.

Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.”

These same people will accuse you of not being loving.

I AM A LOVER………………..of everything and everybody that God loves.

But there is One Person I love more than you.

God.

Jesus said, “If you love Me keep My commandments.”

John, the apostle of the Lamb said, “Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.”

If you cannot love Jesus it’s because you love sin more.

Sadly, only a remnant will fight or contend for the gospel. In fact, we are so tripped up, there are many people that dispute things that really have very little to no bearing over confronting the very things that face the church. We do not realize that the enemy is slowly closing in on the destruction of the truth that it doesn’t really matter that people are dying and going to hell.

The biggest deception is when sexual immorality become decriminalized. When repentance and faith toward God, through the grace and redemption of our Lord Jesus Christ is no longer at the tip of the spear. We are naked and ashamed because we refuse to put on Christ. We no longer go out to battle in armor of light, but we go to battle wearing………………..nothing.

Speaking of wearing nothing. In one segment, you will see women on stage at the MegaFest, dress like they were going clubbing. It is clear that femininity is used as a power to lure men or to have power over men. In other cases, it is also a lure for women to engage in lesbianism or biseuxality. I believe that the segment was one of those “Woman Thou Art Loosed” empowerment segments or “Women Of Purpose.”

Folks, they were dressed loose, not loosed from sin. Loose and lost. Not all of them were dressed that way, but you know who.

Automatically for a brother that has lust issues, forget it. There was no need to dress provocatively. And if Serita Jakes had any holiness left, she should have stopped the show and told them to put some clothes on a cover up the cleavage. What does this tell the other women that are out there? That it’s “OK” to come to church looking like a whore, and a harlot. This is what the church has become. Now when you see them come to church wearing the prostitute’s clothing and you do not check them at the door, just remember, you are responsible.

The spirit of harlotry is in the house of the Lord. Perversion is rampant in the church. Lust in men’s hearts and the spirit of the harlot is in the hearts of women.

We are naked because we are having sexual immorality. We worship ourselves. Porn and masturbation is the worship of ejaculation and orgasm. We worship sexual immorality because of the pleasures associated with it. We desire to make up our rules because God no longer rules us. We have reached a place where the worship of God, in spirit and in truth is no longer sought. But the worship of ourselves is the only thing that matters.

When you hear these preachers talk, Jesus and the correctly divided Word is no longer mentioned. They are saying things out of their emotions. The spirit and the soul is so close that sometimes they are almost indistinguishable. When the Lord is no longer present, preachers know how to substitute the soul for the lack of the Holy Spirit. It’s all a ploy to keep them coming for more. Strip away the emotions and the personalities and you will see the nakedness. So they do not want to appear naked. So they put a veil before the eyes of people.

The veil of false doctrine and hypocrisy, packaged in their emotional personality delivery of their word, not the Word of God.

Paul said, And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of men’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of salvation…”

So the power of God is the gospel of Jesus Christ that must have a zero factor of human wisdom, emotion delivery hype, and personality worship.

As a result, what preachers say could make a false statement sound so true and believable that the Bible is not used to check and cross check what was said. Masters of deception. That’s one of the reasons why the Lord wrote the Word on tablets to Israel. Then gave additional instructions to make sure that they got it.

Psalm 119 is the largest chapter in the Bible with 176 verses, divided into 22 stanzas with 8 verses each. At the beginning of each stanza is the Hebrew alphabet. God is telling us that the Word is the ABC’s of precepts, law, commands, statues, judgments, ways, His word, testimonies, and word of truth.

That tells us that as long as you know the Word, you can’t go wrong.

If you look at each of these speakers when you watch the video, if they did use the Bible, it wasn’t that they started out with the text from Scripture. They started with their point and then attempted to use Scripture to support what they were saying. This is how many people get into trouble with interpreting the already interpreted Bible. The Spirit of God is the only one that has the perfect interpretation of the Word. It is our job to just stay with the rule of interpretation.

You never isolate a Scripture to make a point. You use two or more Scriptures to solidify the base Scripture. When you fail to use this rule, you can make yourself sound so spiritual. Sadly in all corners of the globe where you see strange interpretations of Scripture, you will always see people accept it without searching the Scriptures. They take everything for face value.

Proverbs 14:15 says, “The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps.”

Many will argue their points of Scripture and sound very convincing. However, what stands above everything is the fact that God gave us sense. We also have the Holy Spirit and He will never guide you into error.

At MegaFest, this is what was prevalent. And it seems that they didn’t even care about who was watching that would say something that would rebut their activities. It’s like that verse of Scripture that one alleged pastor used of Proverbs 11:11 and G. Craige Lewis rebut that very well.

This is what the verse said,

By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted,
But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

The city is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

The pastor that is preaching righteousness is made to be the one that is wicked and the preacher of righteousness is made to be the one responsible for the overthrowing of the city. While the wicked is made to appear righteous.

It’s been what the Spirit of God has shared.

It’s the criminalization of righteousness and the decriminalization of sin.

This pastor had two of the three of Destiny’s Child come to the stage to receive a proxy apology of pastors that spoke the truth against their sexually explicit acts. It was made to appear that those that spoke truth in the Word of God about their lewd acts, were wrong. This is what the enemy, the devil set out to do from the time that he was kicked out of heaven. To make God be the bad guy and the devil is the good guy.

Isaiah 5:20 says,

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!”
