The homosexual acceptance act otherwise known as the Hate Crimes bill was signed into law yesterday 10/28/09. So how does this law affect most Bible believing Christians? This law will try silence Christians from speaking out against all the  vile and filthy acts of the homosexual, lesbian, and trans-gender lifestyle. In one stroke of the pen Obama has given Federal protection  to some 40 perverse sexual orientations such as bestiality, pedophilia,transsexuals, and transvestites to name a few. It is no wonder that the Obama Administration would support this type of legislation since he is a radical himself. Here a some of the people appointed  to the administration as Czars: Van Jones an avowed Communist who had to resign, Carol Browner a Marxist- Socialist, Cass Sunstein, and many more to numerous here to name.

Getting back to the  topic at hand, so you may ask how did this hate crimes legislation pass? First we are living in a PC environment in which free speech is not tolerated and Fascism rules the day!!!! If you disagree with the with prevailing  PC thought  on any subject, they shout you down, call you a homophobe, call you a racist, try to isolate you and minimize your right to Free Speech. So in reality they are the true Fascists, not the Christians who want to speak the truth of the Bible.

So was the legislation passed into law?? Simply by combining it with Defense spending legislation, the coward lawmakers knew that the Hate Crimes bill would not pass as stand-alone legislation. By combining the two bills the coward lawmakers would circumvent public scrutiny and sneak in under the radar the horrendous free speech eliminating hate speech/ hate crimes bill.

As a strong Christian I am not intimidated by the homosexual radicals, and I will continue to speak out against the sin of homosexuality as the Bible perfectly states it. I have a strong word for the homosexual and lesbian community. Repent of your sins, turn from your wicked ways and receive Jesus Christ as your Savior or burn in Hell for All Eternity!!!!!!!! For the Judgement of  Almighty God will be upon America shortly and His Wrath will be poured out because as a nation America has rejected God His precepts, and principles. The economy is all ready in shambles because America has worshipped at the altar of the false god Mammon. Now the acceptance of  all the perversions of the Homosexuals as normal. We must not forget what happened to the Sodomities in the 19th Chapter of Genesis, they were destroyed as God rained down fire and brimstone upon them.

fund0334Over the past 30 years the homosexual agenda has been  been somewhat hidden in the closet, denied, or lied about and kept under a rock. Now the agenda of the Gay and Lesbian activists is totally clear  and very obvious which is to tear down and destroy the very fabric which holds society together and that is the institution of traditional marriage. How did gay rights find its way to the forefront of our nation’s policy makers and what are the consequences of religious intolerance as portrayed in the proposed “Hate Crimes” bill.

 The so-called gay rights movement, found its way to this nation through the matrix of secular and ungodly lawmakers and its willing accomplices the Federal Court system. By using the same pathway as the 60′s civil rights used, and by declaring  that gays and lesbians were a race of people they found a way to become a protected class. Now I ask you how can someone’s sexual deviation be even considered for a class status or a race of people. In the Book of Genesis chapter 19 vs 24 God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah  for the sin of homosexuality plain and simple. Homosexuality is a sin and a wicked degrading sin as well which will lead its participants into the pit of Hell for all eternity. This act is pure wickedness and immoral, not  some glorified gay right as stated  its vocal arrogant  supporters who are rebellion against God Almighty.

The gay drive for public approval of their alternative lifestyle began in the early 1970′s with efforts to portray homosexuality and its deviant sexual practices  as a valid, healthy and equally acceptable way of life. Gay activists were demanding even then that public school sex education courses taught by gays should present homosexuality as a healthy alternative. (Time, September 8,1975)  There has been an emotional manipulation of the American public. Firstly ordinary citizens have been made to feel guilty, by a constant barrage of accusations, that they are bigoted and homophobic for having seen their homosexual lifestyle as antagonistic to their basically Judeo- Christian value system. Secondly the gay militants through their acts of  violence, plainly intimidate average Americans into acceptance of their deviant homosexual lifestyle.(Kinsey, Sex, and Fraud,103) I have a word for the militant gay activists, I will not be intimidated. I will continue to stand up and speak out against the sin of homosexuality not mater what type of hate speech law is passed.

Homosexuality is a learned behavior, people are not born that way as some sympathizers say. Alfred Kinsey  the father  of sexual programming in the public school system and SEICUS espoused  that children can enjoy and benefit from sexual interaction with adults. Kinsey’s grand scheme is almost realized through establishing homosexuality as normal behavior. By promoting sexual promiscuity blurring the lines where pedophilia is concerned. Through attacking religion to undermine the Judeo-Christian concept of sin and eliminate the distinction between right and wrong. Lobbying the Judicial system  to reform sex laws so that aberrant sexual behavior is not considered criminal. To redefine Family to break the hertosexual model of nuclear family with a mother and a father.

God’s Agenda is abstinence, abstinence, abstinence. God’s Agenda is one man and one woman in marriage. God Agenda is totally opposite of the secular humanists who want to destroy the traditional family and replace  it with someone’s sick twisted perverted idea of gay marriage. Years ago gay meant happy, today being  gay equals  a sinful lifestyle.

You can be delivered from the homosexual lifestyle by repenting from sin, believing in Jesus  to be your Lord and Savior. And you will not be condemned to Hell for all Eternity. Read the Bible, join a Bible believing Church, go to  Bible study and give Jesus the praise for deliverance from a perverse and sinful lifestyle.

miracle serviceperry_stone-false_prophet

MorrisCerulloWhat I see happening in the Charismatic World is more of the same  old stuff. Some Christians just don’t seem to get it, and are still looking for the next Great Revival of  Signs and Wonders. You would think that with all the information out there about Todd Bentley’s false healing revival in Lakeland Fl  that people would come to their senses and have some discernment.  But no, the Signs and Wonder chasers are still out there in full force, looking to be deceived by the next “Anointed Preacher” or New Doctrine. It seems that itching ears have to be itched over,  and over,  and over again. As II Timothy 4 vs 3 states that:“For the time will come when they will not endure sound Doctrine”. If only Christians would be able to discern the times we live in, they would understand the time that II Timothy speaks about is the present age we live in. Not in some future time to come , but right in the here and now.

This is a right now word, how many times have I heard that only to find out that the TV preacher was trying to sell some of that right now  word for a special price of only $19.99. Benny Hinn’s miracle crusades are still drawing huge crowds with people desperately seeking  Signs and Wonders only to be crushed when their guaranteed miracle does not happen.

Morris Cerullo is still hawking his how to pray books and special  spiritual warfare prayer Bibles along with next crusade of whatever.

Paul Crouch and Richard Roberts are still begging  the viewer to send in their seed faith gift and their miracle will come. How about some  special Harvest Anointing oil or Revival Anointing oil as sold by the Elijah List for $14.00. When will the merchandising  and marketing of trinkets to God’s people ever end ? It won’t stop until Jesus returns.

Even Perry Stone has veered  off course and will be interviewing next week someone who went to heaven and spoke with their relatives. Now that is necromancy and spiritualism which is specifically forbidden by the Bible. He went on to say that the person had a near death experience, and came back to share what happened.  Even my daughter recognized that speaking to the dead was forbidden by God. I guess he had to fill in time and figured the way to boost ratings  was to show something that  bordered on the bizarre. Perry’s teachings  now have more of a Kabbalah influence than that of the Bible.  Does anybody see a pattern here, there is really something wrong with this picture.

As Christians are we really that gullible, the answer unfortunately is an astounding yes. But we can change that by going back to sound teaching and doctrine and by studying the Bible daily. Start by reading some of the classic Christian sermons by preachers such as EM Bounds, Charles Spurgeon, Harry Ironside, or DL Moody. We must humble ourselves, get on our knees and pray for Forgiveness for straying so far away from our First Love which is the  Lord Jesus Christ. Then  and only then we will be on the right path of  obeying God rather than man.

hagin1Is there such a thing  as  being drunk in the Spirit ?  Slain in the Spirit or Holy Laughter. I have seen people slain in the spirit many times in the last 24 years holy_laughter1. But the question that always  arises is it real or was it a emotional response. The emotional experience in most charismatic services is what becomes top priority. Most charismatics mistake the feeling generated by  the music minister leading the praise and worship during the service as Holy Spirit ordained. The exhilarating  feeling that is felt is mistakenly called the move of the Holy Spirit.

The preaching of the Word becomes an afterthought and takes a back seat to the music which intensifies the experience whipping the crowd into a frenzy. I was in one service where a woman fell out and landed right on my left arm  which was a good thing because if my arm was not there she would have hit her head on the metal chair. She would have been in considerable pain, from the unexpected bump on her head. Sometimes I just don’t understand people and what makes them tick.

Now we get down to the heart of the matter, what is being drunk in the Spirit, Slain in the Spirit or Holy Laughter. As Kenneth Hagin said many times over drunk again. I looked in many Bibles including many Translations and never did see the Apostles ever mention that being drunk in the Spirit was a manifestation of the Spirit.  I just could not find any substantiation for this doctrine.The only people who said that the Apostles were drunk on the day of Pentecost were the mockers( Acts 2 vs 3).  So if the mockers were saying the Apostles were drunk; and Kenneth Hagin also said that he drunk and stumbled around acting like a drunk. There is only one conclusion that can be reached and that is Kenneth Hagin and the mockers in Acts 2 were of the same mind. Kenneth Hagin by saying he was drunk in the Spirit was actually mocking the Holy Spirit. Here is a short video clip of Kenneth Hagin and Ken Copeland in what is called Pentecostal Bedlam.

There are people falling, laughing and running all over the place. and right in the middle of the mess was Kenneth and Gloria Copeland.  The scene is absolutely sad and chaotic, the Holy Spirit was never  in this circus. There was a spirit there  a false spirit, a demonic spirit, an unclean spirit masquerading as the Holy Spirit. God is not the author of confusion but the Devil is  and he is the father of lies. The people in this clip have given themselves over completely to the influence of Satan. They are under a  demonic delusion  and their actions border on the bizarre. Peter replied to the mockers in the book of Acts 2  vs 15 “For these men are not drunk as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day” which is 9 AM.

According to an article by Biblical Discernment  Ministries : Kenneth Hagin cited Acts chapter 2 in an attempt to prove that the Apostles were drunk in the Spirit on the day of Pentecost. This is nonsense. Those who said the disciples were “full of new wine” were the mockers who wanted to debunk the miracle of tongues which was occurring (Acts 2:13).

The mockers did not say the disciples were drunken because they were staggering about and slurred in speech and falling to the ground, but because of the many languages which were used to preach the Gospel that day and because they wanted to slander the servants of Christ. In his reply to these mockers, PETER PLAINLY SAID THEY WERE NOT DRUNKEN (Acts 2:15). In Ephesians 5:18, Paul CONTRASTS drunkenness with the filling of the Spirit. The drunk is not in control of himself, but is under the power of a foreign substance. In contrast, the Spirit-filled Christian is entirely in control of himself under the direction of the Holy Spirit. There is absolutely no case in the New Testament of the Lord Jesus Christ or the Apostles or early Christians staggering about in a drunken stupor, unable to attend to necessary duties, as those in the laughing revival are experiencing. THE CHRISTIAN IS COMMANDED TO BE SOBER AT ALL TIMES (1 Thess. 5:6,8; 1 Tim. 3:2,11; Titus 1:8; 2:2,4,6; 1 Pet. 1:13; 4:7; 5:8).

If for no other reason, one should reject Hagin on this basis alone: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

The only example of “spiritual drunkenness” in the Bible is in the prophets, referring to God’s judgment upon sin and apostasy (Isa. 29:9-14; Jer. 51:37-40). These prophecies sound a solemn warning to the Laughing Revival crowd. They have rejected the sound teaching of the Bible; they have refused to be sober and vigilant; they have mocked careful Biblical discernment; they have exalted experience over doctrine; they have gone awhoring after feelings and “signs and wonders”; and they have been blinded by demonic delusions. God warns that those who refuse to obey the truth will be blinded by lying wonders (2 Thess. 2:9-12).

Throughout the rest of Hagin’s sermon, various people were laughing hysterically, making it difficult to follow his message. The service could best be characterized by confusion. It ended like it began, with a rock concert disguised as a worship service.

rg3It is imperative now, that we must contend for the Faith more earnestly than ever. The amount of false doctrines and false movements which are circulating in Christianity today are mind boggling and confusing to some believers.

Many Christians just don’t know who or what believe anymore. The Bible tells us in the Book of Hebrews Chapter 12 vs 2 that we should be ” Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our Faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God”. Jesus will get us through the adversity we are facing. As many a preacher have said “Jesus is our source, the Cross is the means”. The Book of Jude states in verse 3 “to contend earnestly for the Faith which was once delivered unto the Saints”.


The adversity that Christianity is facing today comes from within the body of Christ not from the secular world. The movements which are responsible for seducing believers. Away from the simple Truth of the Gospel are : Signs and Wonders, Prophets/ Apostles, Latter Rain, Joels Army, Manifested Sons of God, the Word of Faith, and the Emergent Church movements. Take a look at a video clip of C.Peter Wagner as he endorses Todd Bentley last year in Lakeland Fl. Who may I ask appointed C.Peter Wagner in charge of endorsing anyone. Some of  Peter Wagners quotes are found here: http://www.deceptioninthechurch.com/wagnerquotes.html

Did God really appoint C. Peter Wagner as head of the Apostles movement, absolutely not he appointed himself and the rest of his ilk such as Che Ahn, Todd Bentley, Rick Joyner, Paul Cain, Chuck Pierce and the rest of the Kanas Vineyard False prophets. Who have Global designs for the Church through the ecumenical movement in uniting Apostate Christianity with the One World Church, and eventually accepting the Antichrist to be the Christ.

Then there are people like Patricia King from the Extreme Prophetic who  espouses New Age psycho-babel and labels herself as a “New Mystic”.  The only way for people like Patricia King to stay on the scene is for the average believer to be dumbed down, looking for an experience rather than studying the Bible and knowing  how to spot a false prophet immediately. Not only does she teach mysticism as the core of belief, Patricia King  is a gnostic as well. According to Moriel Ministries King is quoted as saying “WISDOM IS REVELATION CONCEALED AND REVELATION IS HIDDEN WISDOM REVEALED. When the Kairos time comes for hidden wisdom to be revealed in the earth, the deep of the Father connects with the deep of our spirits, and Holy Spirit impregnates us with revelation knowledge wrapped in the seed of His Word. As a result, hidden wisdom foreordained unto our Glory in Christ is unlocked.” http://moriel.org/MorielArchive/index.php/discernment/church-issues/patricia-king-exposed-2

Here is a short clip of Patricia King and her breaker anointing.  What’s with the  all woe’s and hoe’s I just don’t get it, oh thats supposed to emphasize her spirituality really!!!!!!!

There are real people who are concerned about these heretical movements such as one who I admire for his stand is Justin Peters Ministries. He not only speaks out against the heresies of the false teachers but has put together a great seminar”A CALL FOR DISCERNMENT” which is a Biblical Critique on the Word of Faith which speaks to the heart of the matter and the false teaching that began with Kenneth Hagin. As Christians we can no longer sweep things under the rug,  look the other way, or be neutral. We must take a stand now and we must contend for the Faith and do so with passion for  precious lives are held in the balance.

joel-osteenjoycekimclement2Wow, it has been an amazing past two weeks. First of all since I have started speaking the truth about about the false teaching  of Kenneth Hagin and Word of  Faith. My wife’s cousin eliminated me from her facebook friends list. I for one was not shocked for I  am no stranger to controversies. But I am amazed  at how brainwashed people are today by the false teaching that has been circulating through the Churches in Charismania. The Bible in Isaiah 1 vs 18 calls to come now and let us to reason together. What I see happening today in the Charismatic World is a complete shutting down of any dialogue of reasoning.

There is a complete split coming , if it is not already here between Orthodox Christianity and the signs/ wonders crowd. Between  studying the Bible  and those seeking Spiritual experiences. Between the lukewarm seeker friendly  and those that will stand for the True Gospel of Christ calling sin, sin. Between the false prophets,  who  prophesy lies in the name of the Lord and those who call for repentance and a turning back to the Lord before the Judgement of God falls on America. Between those who call for Restoration and what is truly needed Reformation.

The Bible says in II Timothy 4 vs 3 &4 “For the time will come when they(Christians) will not endure sound Doctrine; but they after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears”. The sign that we are now seeing by the proliferation of all the false teachers, false prophets is God’s Judgement on the Church for it must begin in the House of God first.( 1st Peter 4 vs 17 & 18. Look at Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, Joyce Myers, “Positive” and Happy Gospel” and compare it to the  true teachings of Jesus in the Gospels there is a big difference. Paul Washer has spoken clearly about this subject as well.

Do we need to hear from the false prophets like Kim Clement, Paul Cain, Rick Joyner, and the like to know what is going on in the world today. Wake up Christians !!!! Wake up people!!!!!!!!!! Read your Bible and understand the signs of the times, Jesus said as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man (Mathew 24 vs 37 & 38)

The time is right  for reformation, to turn from these false teachers, false prophets,  and repent. We must understand that the Church will not subdue all nations for Christ as Kingdom Now and Manifest Sons of God theology teaches. But Jesus will rapture for his Church first, then the 7 year Tribulation period, and at the end of the Great Tribulation Jesus comes back again at the battle of Armageddon. Just as the  Bible  says in the Book of Revelation!!!!!!!

What  have we  learned about  Todd Bentley and the false healing revival that happened last year in Lakeland Florida. Numerous, numerous lessons were learned one of which  that comes straight out of the Bible from the Gospel of  Mathew Chapter 24 vs 11 & 12 “And many false prophets shall rise and deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold”. These two verses capture the distinct age that we live in and say volumes of the lack of spiritual discernment in the Body of Christ and the Churches today.

A very important lesson learned of how as Christians, we must stay sharp and alert in the Word of God as a Watchman on the Wall. We must be vigilant, not let our guard down. We must stand up for the true Gospel of Christ, and speak out to warn the brethren . We must not be intimidated, we must have the boldness of the Holy Spirit to speak the truth in love and finally we need to understand the times we are living which are filled with false Christ’s, false prophets, false teaching, deception and apostasy. If we understand the history of the false healers and false revivals we can know what to look for.

The immediate tip off about where Todd Bentley’s false healing  revival was heading was to look at his associations, if you want to know about someone look at the company they keep. The key to spotting any false healer  or prophet is to first check it out with scripture, if they make any reference to dreams, visions from an Angel, Divine revelations, or trips to Heaven  or Hell  a red flag of  skepticism must be raised.  Most of the people attending Bentley’s revival could not tell the difference between true and false because they were looking for an experience and were not reading the Bible  to help them understand the signs of the times.

According to Bentley his heroes and his mentors included William Branham, Kenneth Hagin, Rodney Howard Browne  and of course Bob Jones of the Kansas City false prophet fame. William Branham had an angel  a pillar of light present in his false healing crusades and so did Todd Bentley. The angel which Bentley referred to was a demon spirit or fallen angel  called Emma.  In talking about his help from a healing angel, William Branham  once  stated that he was unable to minister unless the angel was at his side( Occult Bondage and Deliverance, Kurt Koch pp. 49,50).

Branham  and Bentley’s experience with angels of light were very similar. It is extremely important  to understand the devious deception that is taking place in the Body of Christ today. The Bible tells us to test the spirits to see if they are of God, 1st John chapter 4 verse 1 states: “Beloved , believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world”. This false healing revival is exactly what the above scripture is talking about. According to Bob Jones God told him on New Years eve in 2008 that a third wave was coming and that wave was called Winds of Change.

Latter Rain doctrine is a modern version of the classic heresy of Gnosticism, which taught that a spiritual elite possessed “hidden knowledge” of the divine realm which placed their personal revelations, spiritual experiences, and private interpretation of Scripture above the ordinary revelation of God’s Word. In Latter Rain doctrine, Pentecost was the “former rain” or outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the Church must yet receive a second Holy Spirit visitation. At this time, the Sons of God will be glorified and manifested to all as they establish the Kingdom on earth before Jesus Christ returns bodily. Latter Rain prophets are now preparing multitudes for this transformation.( Barbara Aho, The Latter Rain Revival)

Todd Bentley asked Bob Jones what was the other two waves, he said wave #1  Toronto Blessing , wave #2 Pensacola and # 3 became Todd Bentley’s false healing revival in Lakeland FL. My question is a rhetorical one; Will We Get Fooled Again? My answer simply is, we should not get fooled again, but some will.

creflo-dollarKenneth Hagin, Sr.image3767745g

It has become clearly apparent and evident  after thorough examination that the men pictured here are preaching another Jesus. Kenneth Hagain, Kenneth Copeland and Creflo Dollar have over the years built empires by teaching heresy. Lets take a look at Dad Hagin, for the life of me I could never understand why people would call him dad .  It must be  a Rhema thing, even when I was attending a Word of Faith Church I never considered him as the father of faith. Jesus is always  the object of  our faith and not man. Over the years my opinion of Kenneth Hagin has changed from benign neutrality to an extremely dangerous one. Especially after watching a video clip from Pawcreek Ministries and Joseph Chambers titled Kenneth Hagin and the Spirit of the Serpent. The clip is from a 1999  Holy Ghost meeting where a Hagin starts hissing  and moving his tongue around like a serpent and people begin to slither out of their chairs like snakes all  while walking around like a man who was drunk.

The point that I am trying to make is this that side show was apex of  Hagin’s blasphemy and God’s Judgement has been on Rhema ever since. Kenneth Hagin’s ministry from the beginning was founded on plagerism, false visions of Jesus, paranormal experiences, twisting the scriptures and lies. The Jesus he preached was one who going to make you healthy and  wealthly, which was bad enough but he taught that Jesus took on the nature of Satan on the Cross and died spiritually. This is a complete heresey and a baldface lie which Hagain plagurized from EW Kenyon along with many others. Justin Peters in his seminar Call for Discernment  video goes into the origin of the Word of Faith cult and it is a cult which dabbles in the occult under the false teaching of Divine Revelation.

Both Kenneth Copeland  and Crefalo Dollar take Word of Faith false teaching and heresy to another level. Some call it hyper faith I call it just  same old lie that Satan told Adam and Eve in the Garden that they could be as gods.  It is Kenneth Copeland  who said the biggest failure in the Bible was God.  In one of his infamous prophecies Copeland was told supposedly by Jesus   that I did not claim I was God; I just claimed I walked with Him and that He was in Me.(Kenneth Copeland, Take time to pray,Believers Voice of Victory 15,2 ( Feb. 87). With his little gods teaching Crefalo Dollar has moved up the ladder in the Word of  Faith anals. The teaching about  being little gods is not new for Benny Hinn pushed forth this heresy years ago. Dollars spin on this teaching is amazingly sad and very blasphemous , it goes like this if horses got together they produced what? another horse. If dogs got together, they produced what? another dog. If the Godhead got together, what did they produce? and the congregation said: the Godhead produced gods, therefore ye are little gods. No, no, absolutely not; God created man,  in His image and likeness not to be litte gods, but to be man His highest creation subject to the Creator. God is the object of our worship, not man.

As the Apostle Paul states so clearly in II Corinthians chapter 11 vs 3 & 4 ” But I fear lest by any means as the  serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes Preaching another Jesus whom we have not Preached or if you receive another spirit, which you have not received or another gospel which you have not accepted, you might well bear with him”. The Gospel of Christ is simple, but men twist the scripture for their benefit. Paul preached  Jesus Christ and Him Crucified anything else is another Jesus.

sunset7 Many will ask  today why does doctrine and theology matter, isn’t it enough just to believe in Jesus. The answer to that question is a resounding no. Doctrine does matter and so does theology. The problem within the Charismatic and Word of Faith circles and even some churches is that any and all doctrine and theology is acceptable. I have heard many times how its unity in the Spirit which matters most. What matters is that this false unity  becomes the vehicle where most of the error is promulgated and distributed through false teachers of today such as Hagin, Copeland, Dollar etc.

Take for instance Word of Faith doctrine of Divine Health and healing of the believer. Health and healing according Hagin/ Copeland depend on the faith of the believer  and is always guaranteed 100% as long as the believer has the right amount of faith. It sounds good but does it work, absolutely not. And the reason it does not work 100% of the time is because the God of all creation is Sovereign. God still does and will heal, but not because we are some great faith supermen but because He is God and can do whatever He wants.

What Hagin/ Copeland are talking about is having faith in faith and not faith in the Lord Jesus  to accept His will for our lives. The true blessing in life comes going through difficulties with God as our Pilot, not by confessing that I have Divine health and no sickness will attack me. They elevate and deify man and demote God to some kind of an errand boy doing their bidding. This doctrine is truly blasphemous and heretical and leading many  into  deception.

I remember one time my friend had gall bladder problem, who is a Word of Faith believer, who would not see a doctor or even mentioned at all that he was sick because he didn’t want to speak an illness into being. Suffice it to say a few months later he had his gall bladder removed because he couldn’t stand the pain. So much for positive confession, thats why doctrine and theology do matter because lives are in the balance.
