Kenneth Copeland – One of the First to Yield
I shouldn’t have been shocked at this video… not in the slightest. Still, when I viewed Kenneth Copeland unabashedly playing into the hands of the “one world religion,” it left me with a sinking feeling in my stomach.
Twenty-four hours later, I’m still a little dazed.
Many of you may not know, but I “cut my teeth” on listening to Kenneth Copeland and the other “Word of Faith” preachers. Wrong or right, they were the preachers and teachers who caused me to have a ravenous hunger for the Word of God.
Ironically, it was that “ravenous hunger” FOR the Word of God that led me to spend a lot of time IN the Word of God, where I quickly found out that Kenneth Copeland and his ilk were absolute charlatans.
Still, as I watched the following video yesterday, I couldn’t help but be gripped by a deep sense of grief and urgency.
All of a sudden, things got very “REAL” for me.
And it’s because of this “REALNESS,” that I’m going really let her rip today. But first, you need to watch the video.
Although it is difficult to view at times (and it is a little long), PLEASE be patient and try to watch it in its entirety. I want to show you a MAJOR STRATEGY that the enemy is currently using (and will be using more) in these Last Days.
You REALLY need to pay attention so that you will recognize this trick when you see it!

Finding “Unity” in Error
The vast majority of those who call themselves “believers,” as well as most of the “other” religious leaders around the world, are going to unite under the banner of the “mother church” …which is actually the “harlot church.”
Now, while I do believe that the “harlot church” finds its FULLEST EXPRESSION in the Catholic church (there are many Scriptures to back this up), you would be incorrect to assume that I (Kevin) think that the title “harlot church” ONLY belongs to the Catholic church.
Let me explain.
Christians Conveniently Distance Themselves from Catholics
Most “believers in Christ” are all too quick to distance themselves from the “mother church,” due to the worship of Mary, the sacraments and other pagan practices (or at least they USED to be quick to distance themselves – maybe not so much anymore). But they don’t understand (or refuse to understand) that the modern day “Christian church” is only a small step away from the “Catholic church.”
Many, MANY of the practices and views of the Catholic church are still resident (and flourishing) in the modern day “Christian church.” The Catholic church knows this… but still the Christian church remains willfully ignorant.
During the Council of Trent, held in northeast Italy (1545 to 1563), the Archbishop of Reggio squashed the “Scripture only” arguments of Martin Luther and the Protestant “reformers” when he correctly stated:
The Protestants claim to stand upon the written word only; they profess to hold the Scriptures alone as the standard of faith. They justify their revolt by the plea that the Church has apostatized from the written word and follows tradition. Now, the Protestants’ claim that they stand upon the written word alone is not true. Their profession of holding the Scriptures alone as the standard of faith is false. Proof… The written word explicitly enjoins the observance of the seventh day as the Sabbath. They do not observe the seventh day, but reject it. If they truly hold the Scriptures alone as the standard, they would be observing the seventh day as it is enjoined in the Scripture throughout. Yet they not only reject the observance of the Sabbath as enjoined in the written word, but they have adopted, and do practice, the observance of Sunday, for which they have only the tradition of the (Catholic) Church. Consequently, the claim of Scripture alone as the standard fails and the doctrine of ‘Scripture and tradition as essential’ is fully established, the Protestants themselves being Judges.”
A “Christian” will thumb his nose at a Catholic’s practice of Mary worship and the sacraments, but he will conveniently overlook the equally pagan practices of celebrating Christmas and Easter, and worshiping on the “Day of the Venerable Sun,” as well as worshiping his own “saints” (like Luther, Martyr, Copeland, Joyner, Osteen, etc.), thinking that God will give them a “pass” because after all, “God knows my heart.”
Face it, the Catholic probably thinks (and says) the same thing.
God has been calling His “ekklesia” out of the harlot church.
As we get closer and closer to the End, the Call of God is getting louder and louder… and True Believers are answering that Call.
There are many of you who belong to a church and you’re wondering why everything seems to be falling apart. You wonder why compromise seems to be rampant, and everywhere you turn, you see sin infiltrating the place where you used to find peace.
This is by design.
You cannot lie with the world, partake of the world’s system, enjoy her “perks” (think 501c3 and more) and remain unscathed.
He says to His chosen:
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
God says to His chosen, “You have a choice. Do you want to follow My ways? Or do you want to follow the ways of Babylon?”
Make no mistake about it – the mainstream church, with all its “bells and whistles,” is part of the world’s system. They may claim to be separate, but the rotten fruit says otherwise.
And if you remain a part of the mainstream, you will not escape. You will suffer the same consequences as Babylon.
Yes, there may be a few (very few) churches out there who have escaped this corruption, but it’s only a matter of time. It’s close to the end of the game, and Babylon is making its final move.
I advise you to make your choice now. But I warn you, pastors and laity… it’s going to cost you greatly.
You need both the testimony and obedience to the commandments.
If you truly serve the Messiah, persecution and tribulation are on the way to your doorstep. Being in the good ole’ U.S. of A. means nothing …and believing all the “positive and encouraging” words of the false prophets is just plain stupid.
Believe me, this is going to happen.
“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
- On his side ~ or ~
- Inert… useless… not a threat
Those who are keeping God’s commands (you know, those “Old Testament” commands?) AND have the testimony of Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) are the ones the enemy is going to go after in the end.
These are the believers who are truly affecting change and taking ground for the Kingdom.
These are the Children of the God of Israel.
Well… they will be alongside Kenneth Copeland Ministries, under the banner of the “mother church,” following the other lemmings off the cliff.
“Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
God never said it was gonna be easy. Don’t be a lemming.
