False Teacher - Kenneth Copeland - Casting an Evil Net
In 1981, Marilyn and I were invited to a Kenneth Copeland meeting
in Winnipeg, Manitoba by Art and Doreen Beals. During the meeting,
we were uncomfortable with Copeland’s spirit, and with the spirit
and form of worship. This was not because we were unfamiliar with the
gifts of the Spirit or with emotion or anything else like that. There
was simply something there that was not good.
As everyone was “praising the Lord” with hands lifted
up, as led by Kenneth Copeland, Marilyn suddenly and urgently told
me to put my hands down. I knew we needed to do so. As I put down my
hands, I saw a cloud of spirits flying, or floating, in along the high
ceiling. These spirits came down and entered into whomever they chose
of those with upraised hands. I then heard people screaming here and
there. We knew the Lord had spared us, and had revealed to us what
Kenneth Copeland was all about. It was not good.
“But evil men and seducers will go forward to worse, deceiving
and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13 MKJV). All manias end with
a blow-off phase where all sense is abandoned, because people are given
over to their lusts entirely. So we know that we are nearing the end
of evil men and seducers when they laugh like devils and call that
the worship of God.
