And He said, "Son, realize this: Now follow Me in this, don't let your tradition trip you up." He said, "Think this way: A twice-born man whipped Satan in his own domain." And I threw my Bible down. I said, "What?" He said, "A born-again man defeated Satan. The first-born of many brethren defeated him." He said, "You are the very image and the very copy of that one." I said, "Goodness gracious, sakes alive!" And I began to see what had gone on in there, and I said, "You don't mean--you couldn't dare mean, that I could have done the same thing?" He said, "Oh, yeah, if you'd had the knowledge of the Word of God that He did, you could have done the same thing, 'cause you're a reborn man, too."

"If you stood Adam upside God, they look just exactly alike....If you stood Jesus and Adam side-by-side, they would look and act and sound exactly alike....The image is that they look just alike, but the likeness is that they act alike and they are alike....All of God's attributes, all of God's authority, all of God's faith, all of God's ability was invested in that man."
(Kenneth Copeland, Authority of the Believer IV (Fort Worth: Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1987, audiotape #01-0304), side 1)

(Kenneth Copeland, The Incarnation (Fort Worth: Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1985, audiotape #01-0402), side 1.)

"The day that Jesus was crucified, God's life, that eternal energy that was His from birth, moved out of Him and He accepted the very nature of death itself."
(Kenneth Copeland, "The Price of It All," Believer's Voice of Victory, September 1991, 3.)

Kenneth Copeland claims Jesus spoke these words to him:
"It was a sign of Satan that was hanging on the cross....I accepted, in my own spirit, spiritual death; and the light was turned off."
(Kenneth Copeland, What Happened from the Cross to the Throne, side 2.)
Jesus "had to give up His righteousness"

"Satan conquered Jesus on the Cross and took His spirit to the dark regions of hell"
(Kenneth Copeland, Holy Bible: Kenneth Copeland Reference Edition (Kenneth Copeland, Fort Worth: Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1991), 129.)

"He allowed the devil to drag Him into the depths of hell....He allowed Himself to come under Satan's control...every demon in hell came down on Him to annihilate Him....They tortured Him beyond anything anybody had ever conceived. For three days He suffered everything there is to suffer."
(Kenneth Copeland, "The Price of It All," 3.)

"How did Jesus then on the cross say, ‘My God.’ Because God was not His Father any more. He took upon Himself the nature of Satan. And I’m telling you Jesus is in the middle of that pit. He’s suffering all that there is to suffer, there is no suffering left . . . apart from Him. His emaciated, little wormy spirit is down in the bottom of that thing and the devil thinks He’s got Him destroyed. But, all of a sudden God started talking."
(Kenneth Copeland, Believer's Voice of Victory (television program), TBN, 21 April 1991.)

"That Word of the living God went down into that pit of destruction and charged the spirit of Jesus with resurrection power! Suddenly His twisted, death-wracked spirit began to fill out and come back to life....Jesus was born again -- the firstborn from the dead the Word calls Him -- and He whipped the devil in his own backyard."
(Kenneth Copeland, "The Price of It All," 4-6.)

"You are not a spiritual schizophrenic -- half-God and half-Satan -- you are all-God"

"You don't have a God in you; you are one,"
(Kenneth Copeland, The Force of Love (Fort Worth: Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1987, audiotape #02-0028), side 1.)

"As a born-again believer, you are equipped with the Word. You have the power of God at your disposal. By getting the Word deep into your spirit and speaking it boldly out your mouth, you release spiritual power to change things in the natural circumstances."
(Kenneth Copeland, The Power of the Tongue, 15.)

"The basic principle of the Christian life is to know that God put our sin, sickness, disease, sorrow, grief, and poverty on Jesus at Calvary. For Him to put any of this on us now would be a miscarriage of justice."
(Kenneth Copeland, The Troublemaker, 6.)

"You have the same creative faith and ability on the inside of you that God used when he created the heavens and the earth."
(Kenneth Copeland, Inner Image of the Covenant, side 2.)

"Words create pictures, and pictures in your mind create words. And then the words come back out your mouth....And when that spiritual force comes out it is going to give substance to the image that's on the inside of you. Aw, that's that visualization stuff! Aw, that's that New Age! No, New Age is trying to do this; and they'd get somewhat results out of it because this is spiritual law, brother."
(Kenneth Copeland, Believer's Voice of Victory (television program), TBN, 28 March 1991.)

"Believers are not to be led by logic, we are not even to be led by good sense"
(Kenneth Copeland, The Force of Faith, 7)

"I don't preach doctrine, I preach faith."
(Kenneth Copeland, Following the Faith of Abraham I, side 2.)

"Heaven has a north and a south and an east and a west. Consequently, it must be a planet."
(Kenneth Copeland, "Spirit, Soul, and a Body 1" (Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1985, audio tape #01-0601, side 1)

"The Bible said He measured the heavens with a 9 inch span. Now the span is the difference, distance between the end of the thumb and the end of the little Finger. And, and that Bible said, in fact the amplified translation translates the Hebrew text that way. That He measured out the heavens with a 9 inch span. Well, I got a ruler and measured mine, and my span's 8 3/4 inches long. So now God's span is a quarter of an inch, a quarter inch longer than mine. So you see, that faith didn't come billowing out of some giant monster somewhere. It came out of the heart of a being that is very uncanny the way He's very much like you and me. A being that stands somewhere around 6' 2 ", 6' 3", that weighs somewhere in the neighbourhood of a couple of hundred pounds, little better, has a span of 8 and, I mean nine inches across - stood up and said "Light be", and this universe situated itself and went into motion. Glory to God."
(Kenneth Copeland, "Spirit, Soul, and a Body 1" (Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1985, audio tape #01-0601, side 1)

"lt's all a copy. If's a copy of home. It's a copy of the mother planet. Where God lives, He made a little one just like His and put us on it."
(Kenneth Copeland, "Following the Faith of Abraham 1" (Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1989, audio tape #01-3001, side 1)

"God's reason for creating Adam was His desire to reproduce Himself. I mean a reproduction of Himself. And in the garden of Eden He did that. He was not a little like God. He was not almost like God. He was not subordinate to God even. And Adam was as much like God as you can get, Just the same as Jesus when He came into the earth, He said "If you've seen Me, you've seen the Father." He wasn? a lot like God - He's God manifested in the flesh. And I want you to know something - Adam in the garden of Eden was God manifested in the flesh."

(Kenneth Copeland, "Following the Faith of Abraham 1" (Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1989, audio tape #01-3001, side 1)

"I was shocked when I found out who the biggest failure in the Bible actually is. Everybody you ask "Who's the biggest failure?" They say "Judas", somebody else will say "No, I believe it was Adam", well how about the devil. He's the most consistent failure. But he's not the biggest in terms of material failure and so forth. The biggest one in all the Bible is God. What, what, what - don't you turn that set off - you listen to what. I told you - now you sit still a minute. You know me well enough to know I wouldn't, I wouldn't tell something I can't prove from the Bible."
(Kenneth Copeland, "Praise-a-thon" program - TBN (April 1988)

Speaking of Jesus, Kenneth Copeland said: "This body walking here is a product of the faith of God, that God has injected in His Word and put it in the earth, piece by piece, by piece. He's building the express image of Himself.... The faith it took to make fingers was loosed. The faith that it took to make arms was loosed in the earth. And now God had a way to hover over a little woman by the name of Mary. And there was born of that virgin woman a product of God....Listen to me carefully here. Hero's where we're going to depart from ordinary church, Man listen, if you all wanted to have just ordinary church service you're in the wrong spot. Now you see God is injecting His Word into the earth to produce this Jesus. This faith filled Words that framed the image that's in Him. And you can't just walk onto the earth and say "Let it be", because He doesn't have the right. He had to sneak it in here around the god of this world that was blocking Him every way that he possibly could. It had to be put in here as a mystery."
(Kenneth Copeland, "The Image of God in You III" (Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1989, audio tape #01-1403, side 2)

"Jesus had to go through that same spiritual death in order to pay the price.
Now it wasn't the physical death on the cross that paid the price for sin, because if it had of been any prophet of God that had died for the last couple of thousand years before that could have paid that price. It wasn't physical death anybody could do that."
(Kenneth Copeland, "What Satan Saw on the Day of Pentecost" (Kenneth Copeland Ministries, audio tape #020022)

"The Spirit of God spoke to me, and He said "Son, realize this" Now follow me in this, don't let your tradition trip you up. He said "Think this way. A twice-born man whipped Satan in his own domain." And I threw my Bible..I said "What?" He said "A born-again man defeated Satan - the first-born of many brethren defeated him." He said "You are the very image, and the very copy of that one." I said "Goodness Gracious, saints alive." I began to see what had gone on in there, and I said "Well you don? mean - You couldn't dare mean that I could have done the same thing?" He said "Oh yeah. If you'd had the knowledge of the Word of God that He did you could've done the same thing cause you're a re-born man too."
(Kenneth Copeland, "Substitution and Identification"
(Kenneth Copeland Ministries, 1989, audio tape #00-0202, side 2)

"You began to meditate on those scriptures until you built an inner image of yourself healed. As that image grew more crisp and clear, you began to expect- or hope for - that image to become a reality. Eventually, faith rose up, put substance to that internal image and turned it into an external reality. ... That spiritual process always works the same way. Hope forms the image according to the Word, then faith rises up and gives substance to that image, making it a reality in the natural, physical realm. ... Actually, what you did is activate the scriptural process described in Hebrews 11:1 "Faith is the substance of things hoped for ... Boil it down to its simplest form, and you could write it like this: God's Word+Hope+Faith=Manifestation! ... You'll be expecting the very presence of God to rise up in you so powerfully that instead of believing for healing every six weeks, you'll walk in divine health every day! ... It wasn't Peter's shadow that healed them. What was it? That field of Glory that surrounded him. That's what [sic] God put hope in you to expect. The Glory! ... It will flood the earth when we meditate upon the Glory of God so much that hope rises up and produces an image. Then faith will release the Glory of God from the inside of us where we can't see it to the outside where we can see it! ... Does this sound wild to you? Well, it's not! If you'll go back and read the Bible, you'll see that's what Christianity is all about. God intended for the Body of Christ to walk through this earth with such a manifestation of His presence in our lives that it would either scare people spitless ... or draw them into the Kingdom of God!
(Kenneth Copeland, "Believer's Voice of Victory" magazine, January 1998, in an article called "Expect The Glory", p. 5-6)

"Don’t be disturbed when people put you down and speak harshly and roughly of you. They spoke that way of Me, should they not speak that way of you? The more you get to be like Me, the more they’re going to think that way of you. They crucified Me for claiming that I was God. But I didn’t claim I was God; I just claimed I walked with Him and He was in Me. Hallelujah."
(Kenneth Copeland, "Take Time To Pray," Believer’s Voice Of Victory 15, 2 (February 1987): 9.)

"Then, he created Eve out of Adam. Now, actually God didn’t name her Eve, Adam named her Eve later. That wasn’t her name, her name was Adam . . . Adam. When God said Adam, they both came. Their authority was one and the same together. They did everything together. They had always been together. Even when she was still part of him, he was as much female as he was male, LIKE GOD IS. And God separated the female part of him and then put them back together. Andshe was Adam, they were Adam. He was the man, she was the woman. She was the man with the womb."
(Transcribed From A Message Given By Kenneth Copeland, Paw Creek Ministries)


"... the only living Son of God was reborn."
(Kenneth Copeland, audiotape)

"..the force of faith, is in the spiritual realm, a great deal like certain forces in the natural realm. It's a spiritual force like gravity is a natural force, electricity is a natural force of power ... it's a measurable force, it's conductable, perceptable to the touch. Faith is a spiritual force, it's perceptable, it's a tangable force, it's an invisible force .."
(Kenneth Copeland, on TBN with Paul Crouch)

"This written Word is a copy of what God has already used to release His faith in the earth in the midst of mankind."
(Kenneth Copeland, audiotape)

"God's Word ... is our connection to His faith. God's words are containers of His faith, His power, His love, His joy, His longsuffering ..."
(Kenneth Copeland, audiotape)

"...We're gonna be Word people and we're gonna stay Word people and we're gonna be wealthy Word people in the things of God, and when you're wealthy in God you're content all the time, all the time. I can do with a dollar and a half than people out there can do with ten thousand dollars. Now you believe that? All right, reach out here like there's a big ol' lever stickin' up there in front and git ahold of it, and I mean you git it in your hand. You got your teeth gritted, you got a good grip on it? Rip it down some more. And say this ... money come out to me now! (Audience starts shouting with Kenneth Copeland) Money come out to me now! Third time ... money come out to me now! Now you shout about it."

"... He was the first man to every be born from death to spiritual life ... if He hadn't been spiritually born again, how in the world do you think you ever got it?..."

"God filled His words with faith to cause the things He said to come into manifestation. There was an image inside Him. He expressed it in words."
(The Substance of Things (Tulsa, OK: Harrison House, 1990) Page 19)

"Faith is the substance, the raw material....Faith is the substance that God used to create the universe, and He transported that Faith with His words....Faith is the substance of things, but you can't see faith. Faith is a spiritual force."
(Changing the Seen & Shaping the Unseen (Tulsa, OK: Harrison House, 1980) Pages 14-15)

"He framed the world with His words. You can't build without substance. He took words--faith-Filled words were God's substance. Here, essentially, is what God did. God filled His words with faith. He used His words as containers to hold His faith and contain that spiritual force and transport it out there into the vast darkness by saying 'Light be!' That's the way God transported His faith causing creation and transformation."
(Dynamics of Faith & Confession (Tulsa, OK: Harrison House, 1987) Pages 28-29)

"God said, Let us make man in our image after our likeness. The word likeness in the original Hebrew means " an exact duplication in kind." . . . Adam was an exact duplication of God's kind!"
(Authority in Three Worlds (Tulsa, OK: Harrison House, 1982) Pages 15-16)

"in this [the Abrahamic Covenant], God is establishing some legal entry into the earth, and He is giving Abraham access to Himself. . . . This Covenant gave God legal entry into the earth through Abraham....Until that time God was, to a certain extent, still on the outside looking in. He needed a legal entry through man so that He could destroy the works of the Devil who was running rampant on earth. . . . Abraham was God's avenue of entry into the earth."
(Authority in Three Worlds - Pages 60-61)

"Notice that when Jesus said, 'I have finished the work', we know that He had nor finished the work. But I want you to catch something in the way He prayed and the way He talked--He spoke the end results. He never spoke what was. He never admitted death or defeat. . . . Jesus was speaking the end results in His prayer to the Father."
(Authority in Three Worlds - Pages 258-259)

"The sinless son of God became as a serpent that He might swallow up all evil....If you will behold what happened when the sin offering was made and the fact that Jesus became a serpent upon the pole, it will change your life. . . . Jesus died spiritually, not for any of His own sin! He became the serpent on the pole, the snake on the ground, in the Old Testament type."
(Authority in Three Worlds - Page 177 & Pages 166-167)

"If there's any part of hell Jesus did not suffer, you'll have to suffer it. But, thank God, Jesus suffered it all, for you! In the place of the wicked dead, all the demons of hell and Satan rejoiced over the prize. The corridors of hell were filled with joy. 'We've done it! We've captured the Son of God! We'll no longer be in the pit of the damned! The earth and all that is therein is ours! Forever it will be ours!' Rejoicing in hell had never been so great as it was that day. But it was short-lived."
(Authority in Three Worlds - Page 143)

"When Jesus was in the pit of hell. in that terrible torment, no doubt the Devil and his emissaries gathered around to see the annihilation of God's Son. But in the corridors of hell, there came a great voice from heaven: 'Turn Him Loose! He's there illegally!' And all of hell became paralyzed."

RODNEY HOWARD BROWNE


"I'd rather be in a church where the devil and the flesh are manifesting than in a church where nothing is happening because people are too afraid to manifest anything... and if the devil manifests, don't worry about that, either. Rejoice, because at least something is happening."
(Rodney Howard-Browne, The Coming Revival. 1991, p.6)

"You can't understand what God is doing in these meetings with an analytical mind,' he says. 'The only way you're going to understand what God is doing is with your heart."
(Holy Laughter, Albert James Dager, 1996)

"'Either You come down here and touch me, or I will come up there and touch You"
(The prayer Howard-browne prayed before he got the supposed "anointing")
(Holy Laughter, Albert James Dager, 1996)

"Stop praying now and let the joy bubble out your belly. Joy. Joy. Joy. Don't pray! Laugh!"
(Holy Laughter, Albert James Dager, 1996)

"I remember one service where I just went and sat down for an hour and a half. I just went and sat down. Well, there was nothing else I could do. Total pandemonium--people falling off of their chairs, people crying, people laughing and some were wailing--some were shaking. So, I just said to the people, I said, 'Look, just come up when you're ready and lift your hands and God will touch you.' I was sitting on the platform--just sat there and watched them for about an hour and a half. People came right up, got to the front, lifted their hands--BAM!--on the floor. I just sat there. I didn't even pray. You say, 'What'd you do?' I just sat there and twiddled my thumbs. I thought, 'Lord, I wish every meeting was as easy as this.' Now I had preached the word already and taught the word of God, and then I went and sat down. And they came walking up, got to the front, lifted their hands--BAM!--under the power of God."
(Rodney Howard-Browne, TBN video-taped service which was broadcasted on May 1994, p.23-24.)

Rodney Howard-Browne calls himself the "Holy Ghost bartender."

"Take another drink...the bar is open....Be filled! We loose the power! Have another drink!"

"You can't have revival without stirring up the flesh....When revival comes you will see manifestations of these three things in meetings: (1) the Holy Spirit; (2) the flesh, and (3) the devil. But, I'd rather be in a church where the devil and the flesh are manifesting than in a church where nothing is happening because people are too afraid to manifest anything...Don't worry about it. And if a devil manifests, don't worry about that, either. Rejoice, because at least something is happening!"

"'One night I was preaching on hell,' Howard-Browne says, 'and [laughter] just hit the whole place. The more I told people what hell was like, the more they laughed'"
(Rodney Howard-Browne, Charisma, August 1994, pg. 24).

Rodney Howard-Browne names numerous people, calling them "great men of God". Among them is William Branham - an anti-Trinitarian.
("The Coming Revival", written by Howard-Browne, page 13)

"I'm telling your right now, you'll drop dead if you prohibit what God is doing!" He then warned the crowd that those questioning this counterfeit movement would be guilty of the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit and could never have forgiveness. (Rodeny Boward-Browne, Melodyland Christian Center, Anaheim, CA, 1/17/95)

"It felt like my fingertips came off. I felt a full volume of the anointing flow out of my hand. The only way I can explain it is to liken it to a fireman holding a fire hose with a full volume of water flowing out of it. The anointing went right into her. It looked like someone had hit her in the head with an invisible baseball bat and she fell to the floor."
(Rodney Howard-Browne, Touch Of God, 76)

"I tell them never to preach salvation, because they're suggesting people get saved,"
"I'll guarantee anybody, I'll give them a congregation of 1,000 people and tell them to get up and suggest all they want and see what will happen."
"One night I was preaching on hell, and it just hit the whole place. The more I told people what hell was like, the more they laughed, and when I gave an altar call, they came forward by the hundreds to get saved."
(Rodney Howard-Browne)

"I'm just the Holy Ghost bartender,"
"I just serve the new wine and tell them to come drink."
(Rodney Howard-Browne)

Howard-Browne then began pumping us up to do just that. He led us in a song with these words: "I am drunk, I am drunk. Every day of my life I am drunk. I've been drinking down at Joel's place every night and every day. I am drunk on the new wine." Then he asked us all to lift our hands and "let that river of joy come out of your belly."
(Rodney Howard-Browne)
"It started with a dream. Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne, a minister based in Tampa, Fla., had a dream in 1998 in which he was talking to Dr. Billy Graham. Dr. Graham spoke about the crusade he conducted in 1957 at Madison Square Garden. He rented the arena for what started as a six-week crusade, but extended for three and a half months. During that time, 55,000 people gave their lives to God at Madison Square Garden. While Dr. Graham was speaking in the dream, Dr. Howard-Browne wept for New York and America. As he wept, he felt the compassion of God for America. When he awoke, his pillow was soaked with tears. He knew at that moment that God had commissioned him to launch the largest soul-winning crusade of the millenium."

"... We've been taught that revival is sovereign, it's a sovereign move of God. Que sera sera, whatever will be will be, the future's not mine to see, the Doris Day doctrine. If God wants revival He'll do it, and we just wondering if we'll just keep having srvices until one day He comes ... revival is something that can be planned, revival is something that can be scheduled ..."

"... I speak by the Holy Ghost, no man will be able to stand in the way of the glory of God, this is a mighty wave of the glory of God ... these are the days of signs and wonders ... and say God, I'm gonna get in middle the river of the move of the Spirit of the mighty God ... prepare your hearts for the coming of the Lord ..."

MORRIS CERULLO



"Did you know that from the beginning of time the whole purpose of God was to reproduce Himself?...And when we stand up here, brother, you're not looking at Morris Cerullo; you're looking at God. You're looking at Jesus"
(Morris Cerullo, "The End Time Manifestation of the Sons of God," Morris Cerullo World Evangelism tape 1).

"You represent all that God is and all that God has...Jesus was the visible expression of God. Jesus was the Son of the Living God. Now, who are you? Sons of God…everyone say it. What is working inside of us is the manifestation. When you look at me, you are looking at Jesus…To see Jesus was to see God. To see me is to see Jesus. Jesus knew who He was. Don’t you think it is about time we know who we are?"

("Joel’s Army," Jewel van der Merwe, Discernment Ministries)

Morris Cerullo claims he was led out of a Jewish orphanage by two angelic beings; transported to heaven for a face-to-face meeting with God; and told he would be capable of revealing the future.

(Cerullo, The Miracle Book, ix; and 7 Point Outreach -- World Evangelism and You (pamphlet), 4.; Cerullo, The Miracle Book, xi.; "God's Faithful, Anointed Servant, Morris Cerullo.")

Claiming that God was directly speaking through him, Morris Cerullo blasphemously proclaimed

"Would you surrender your pocketbooks unto Me, saith God, and let me be the Lord of your pocketbooks....Yea, so be thou obedient unto my voice."
(Morris Cerullo, "A Word from God at the Deeper Life World Conference," Deeper Life, March 1982, 15.)

Morris Cerullo offers the following monstrosity"God's Victorious Army Financial Breakthrough Spiritual Warfare Bible. This Bible is the definitive word on finances, with special icons designed to lead you throughout God's Word, teaching you about Biblical finances.

"... When a person comes forward and testifies that they are healed, we give that testimony. You can call it a claim. We don't claim it but we testify to that fact ..."

WILLIAM BRANHAM


This is what William Branham had to say about the doctrine of the Holy trinity:
"a doctrine of demons"
(The Toronto Blessing, Stephen Sizer, 1990)

William Branham said that Eve's sin involved sexual relations with the serpent, but the "seed of God" were Branham's followers, otherwise known as "the Bride" or "the New Breed"
(The Toronto Blessing, Stephen Sizer, 1990)

"Now my precious brothers - I know this is a tape also. Now don't get excited. Let me say this with Godly love. The hours approached where I can't hold still on these things no more... Trinitarianism is of the devil. I tell you that - Thus saith the Lord."
(William Branham, Footprints on the Sands of Time: The autobiography of William Marrion Branham, Part Two
(Jeffersonville, IN: Spoken Word Publications, 1975), 606-7.)

"Why don't you examine your baptism of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and that false 'trinity' it's so-called..."
(William Braham, "Revelation Chapter Four #3 (Throne of Mercy and Judgment)" (Voice of God Recordings, Inc., 1961, audio tape #61-0108, side 2).

The angel spoke to William Branham saying: "Fear not. I am sent from the presence of Almighty God to tell you that your particular life and your misunderstood ways have been to indicate that God has sent you to take a gift of divine healing to the people of the world. If you will be sincere, and can get the people to believe you, nothing shall stand before your prayer, not even cancer."
(Harrell, All Things Are Possible, 28)

William Branham falsely prophesied: "that by 1977 all denominations would be consumed by the World Council of Churches under the control of the Roman Catholics, that the rapture would take place, and that the world would be destroyed."
(Burgess and McGee, Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements, 96)

William Branham insisted that "believers baptized by a Trinitarian formula must be rebaptized in the name of Jesus only."
(Burgess and McGee, Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements, 95-96)

Branham explained, "...not one place in the Bible is trinity ever mentioned...It's Catholic error and you Protestants bow to it"
(William Branham, Conduct, Order, Doctrine Q and A, p. 182)

"Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is offices of one God. He was the Father; He was the Son; He is the Holy Ghost. It's three offices or three dispensations,..."
(William Branham, Conduct, Order, Doctrine Q and A, p. 392).

William Branham's false heretical view of the Godhead is called Modalism

"Here is what actually happened in the Garden of Eden. The Word says that Eve was beguiled by the serpent. She was actually seduced by the serpent. He was as close to being a human that his seed could, and did mingle with that of the woman and cause her to conceive"
(William Branham, The Original Sin, pp. 2, 3)

"Now, I'm just your brother, by the grace of God. But when the Angel of the Lord moves down, it becomes then a Voice of God to you...But I am God's Voice to you... Now, see, I can say nothing in myself. But what He shows me"
(William Branham, Footprints On The Sands Of Time, p. 214)

When Branham was baptizing 130 converts in the Ohio River, (allegedly) a heavenly light, like a blazing star, appeared above him just as he was about to baptize the seventeenth person ... it has also been reported that a voice spoke from within the light, saying, "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of the Lord, so you are sent to forerun His second coming..."
(The Enigma Of William Branham)

By the 1960's, Branham had clearly become convinced that he was the end-times "Elijah" and the true "Messenger of the Covenant".
(The Enigma Of William Branham)

It was (later in his ministry) that Branham began to gradually withdraw into his own little circle, where he had an adoring and loyal following. (Essentially this circle was made up of "Oneness" or 'Jesus-Only' Pentecostals). And instead of his previous unwillingness to speak about contentious or divisive 'minor' issues, he now gradually began to emphasize such things more and more in his preaching. Slowly, these teachings became ever-more alarming and extreme. (The Enigma Of William Branham)

Branham taught that the Word of God was given in three forms, the zodiac, the Egyptian pyramids, and the written scripture.
(Al Dager, Vengeance is Ours, Sword, Page 59)

To date, William Branham's body is still in the grave. But, his occult methodology of healing was picked up by hundreds of pastors and teachers upon whom he had laid his hands and who have traded on it to a greater or lesser degree.
(Al Dager, Vengeance is Ours, Sword)

Years ago (William Branham) told his interpreter, Pastor Ruff, "If my angel does not give the sign, I cannot heal." Ruff noticed several features of spiritism in the work of Branham, and therefore stopped working with him. These "angels" of whom (Harry) Edwards and Branham spoke are evil spirits masquerading as angels of light. As in many areas of the occult, we are here reminded again that the devil appears as an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14) Another evidence is the fact that neither Edwards nor Branham were able to perform cures when faced with born-again Christians who had committed themselves to the protection of Christ. In the case of Branham, I have experienced this myself. When he spoke in Karlsruhe and Lausanne, there were several believers among the audience -- including myself -- who prayed along these lines: "Lord, if this man's powers are from You, then bless and use him, but if the healing gifts are not from You, then hinder him." The result? On both occasions Brnahm said from the platform, "There are disturbing powers here. I can do nothing."
(Kurt Koch, Occult ABC, 1978, p. 235)

"The most remarkable "messiah" at (the time of the writing of this book) ... is to be found at camp Manujothi Ashram in the desert in South India. It is the extreme American evangelist, William Branham, whom Christians have to thank for this false messiah. His name is Paluser Lawrie Mathukrishna. When Branham was on (a) tour of India, Brother Lawrie became a disciple of his, and Branham described him as the "Son of God" and "Christ returned". This is a very curious situation. Why would the "Son of God" and "Christ returned" be the disciple of a man like Branham? Shouldn't it have been the other way around? Or maybe it was. Perhaps this is an important connection between hinduism and kundalini and the the modern "counterfeit" revival. Perhaps this is where Branham, one of the fathers of the Third Wave movement, picked up the ability to pass along kundalini-type manifestations. Perhaps this is where he picked up a demonic spirit, because it is "reported that towards the end, some of his teachings almost bordered on the occult."

JOHN ARNOTT


"What happens is, there's a transference of His anointing where, not only do you see it, not only do you experience it for yourself, but you're going to take it home to your people."
(John Arnott, Pastor of the Toronto Airport Fellowship, pastor's Meeting, October 19, 1994)

"Another thing that hinders (receiving the Holy Spirit or anointing) is people pray all the time."
(John Arnott, at Holy Trinity Brompton, England, February 14, 1995)

"Yes, Lord, we're going to go for it, we're gonna try to do our part to bring the kingdom of God here...and wouldn't it be wonderful if the Lord would start to move in power and restore the church to its proper place and make us the head and not the tail?"
(John Arnott, TACF, 10/19/94)

John Arnott and his wife gave approval to a woman's report of a divine message from Jesus that she should leave her husband because he was like a stone around her neck.
(A Memoir Of "The Vineyard" Cheryl Thomson, 1994)

Don't "even entertain the thought that (you) might get a counterfeit."
(John Arnott, TACF, 12/16/94, audiotape)

"Jesus said, 'Go pray for Sarah, your friend, I'm going to heal her.'" The crowd erupts with applause and then Arnott continues, "that girl, totally incapacitated, paralyzed and blind, after two and a half hours of soaking prayer, got up seeing." Sadly, Sarah Lilliman is still, as before, legally blind.
(John Arnott, "Valuing the Anointing", TACF, 10/15/94, audiotape)

Of the frightening manifestations in evidence in the Toronto "Blessing" John Arnott says the problem is that we have been conditioned to believe "that the Holy Spirit's a gentleman" who would never do anything "rough or impolite". That, says Arnott, is simply "not true!"
(John Arnott, Discovery Church, Orlando, FL, 1/29/95, audiotape)

"If you're going to be concerned about deception, then please be concerned about the greatest deception that there is, and the greatest deception of all, in my opinion, is not to fall for teachings of a false prophet ... in my opinion the greatest deception of all is to have a move of God come through and you not recognize it."
(John Arnott, "Catch The Fire," Midland and Wales, UK, 2/2/96, audiotape)

It's always revealing, the attitudes people have about critical thinking. A common problem with leadership today is their refusal to criticize or judge the false. This is a tragedy for we need that kind of leadership more now than ever! A prime example is John Hinckle's prophecy that on Thursday, June 9th, the Lord would rip all evil off the face of the earth. That "prophecy" was later spiritualized and revised to say that the "spiritual vail of darkness would be torn, allowing people to see the light!" The Kansas City Prophets and others allegedly had received "words from God" to the effect that for New Testament times, the standard for prophets was different than Deut 18. According to them, a "prophet" can be 40% inaccurate and still be considered valid! Unfortunately, thanks to people like John Wimber, their teachings have been widely accepted. You can see this lax view of prophetic standards in this Arnott observation! This quote may well have been said before June 9th. [Arnott] "People get funny when things like this happen...June 9th, there was a prophecy given by a reputable man,...that the Lord would tear open the vail, the shroud of darkness that is over the earth, that is blinding the earth, and as He tore the vail of the temple when Jesus arose, now He's going to tear open the heavens and allow the glory of God to come down...I really hope it comes true...I know that He's up to something...Don't get too excited about dates, sometimes prophetic people are right about the event, but wrong about the date."
(Toronto Leaders Speak for Themselves, Bob Hunter, 1997)

"We have had word after word about "get ready, cause you're just on the hors d'oeuvres right now," but, the power is coming. We've had a word that said, you know, "I'm just going easy on you now with this kind of stuff so you can kind of get used to me and acclimatize, because with the real power shows up I don't want you to be terrified!"
(John Arnott, Receiving the Spirit's Power)

"I finally start to ask Carol, "Honey, what do you feel?" (Carol), "Oh, it's just wonderful." (Arnott), 'Well, help me," you know, and so she says, "Now, just tune in," and so I'd be tuned in and I'm there, going like this,...and maybe I'd even start weaving a little bit, and I'm thinking "Lord, do I feel something on my hands or am I just making this up? Is there something here or am I so wanting this?"...And Carol would say, "No, no, I can feel Him going in, I can feel Him going in, Just keep focused!" You know and then...she'd say, "Oops, where did you go?" I'd say, "What do you mean?" She'd say, "I feel it coming back on me, where did you go?" And I would realize my mind had drifted off again someplace."
(John Arnott, Receiving the Spirit's Power)

"Don't react by even who's praying, I get so tired of people saying, "Be careful who's praying for you now, somebody might lay hands on you that's not really free, and you might get something you didn't bargain for" [crowd laughs]. Listen, you know what Jesus did? He'd walk right up to a leper and lay hands on him, He wasn't afraid of getting leprosy!" John Arnott also added: "Don't worry about who's praying for you, my goodness, there's not a perfect person praying for people on the face of the earth!"
(Toronto Leaders Speak for Themselves, Bob Hunter, 1997)

Arnott says about manifestation expectations: "People ask us all the time, "What do you feel?" and that's a valid question. At first, it's almost imperceptible, but you think your hands are feeling a little heavier, this is my experience, and as you love Him, and stay tuned to that and say, "Oh, Lord, more of your presence," and it gets heavier and they begin to tingle, kind of, sort of like electricity and it can flow all up and down your arms and all over your face and up and down your legs and when it really increases, it's like you're being electrocuted, almost." The Bible says, however" Jude 19-20 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost. James 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
(Toronto Leaders Speak for Themselves, Bob Hunter, 1997)

"I spoke Sunday night on the topic A Second Wave is Coming. I gave a call for any who were under the fear of deception by critics, etc., and about 100 responded, repenting for allowing their child-like trust in God to be stolen."
(Letter, 2/26/97 from Christchurch, TACF, Road Warriors Archive)

I attended a "revival" meeting last night at Lake Boren Christian Center A/G near Renton, WA (near Seattle) where John Arnott was the featured speaker. At this meeting Arnott introduced a "new anointing" he calls the "Sword of the Lord." With this "anointing" comes a new boldness, a "new power". He also called it the "Warrior Anointing." It promises "to bring deliverance from your enemies." The visible effects of receiving this "anointing" include roaring, shouting and grasping the hands above the head, then swinging them up and down as if one was actually holding a sword and attacking an enemy. Arnott cautioned the crowd not to "take the sword if you have any secret sin because that sword may turn on you." After explaining all this, most of the 600+ people attending lined up to receive this new "anointing" from John Arnott as he grabbed upraised hands and said, "Receive the sword." With this "anointed" touch most of the people fell down and began moving their arms back and forth (as described earlier) while on the floor. Some stood and repeated this same movement. One man I observed actually hit a woman in the side with his "sword."

JUANITA BYNUM



“You need to send a thousand dollars. If you can’t send a thousand, send five hundred… if all you have is a nickel, wrap it in tissue and put it in an envelope. If all you have is your clothes, send them.”

“If you want the power, you have to sow the seed(money)"

“We’re going together into a spirit of wealth.”

“Last night, you sowed to your ability. Tonight, you sow beyond your ability.”

"I need to give because I need favor. I need it because I need an anointing. I need it because I need power."

“‘I’m giving because I want my daughters to be daughters of Zion.’”

“You’ve got three days to get that into your mailbox. I’m not afraid to say this. I am walking in my authority… if you don’t postmark it by the tenth, we will not accept it. God says you have three days to get your thousand-dollar seed in the mail.”

“Give it to me and you will live. Give it to me and you will have more than enough.”

“If all you have is $79.36, I double-dare you to empty your bank account. Close your account.”


What does God's word say about such heresy?

Acts 8:
Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was bestowed through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money, saying, “Give this authority to me as well, so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! You have no part or portion in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. Therefore repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray the Lord that, if possible, the intention of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bondage of iniquity.”


“You cannot violate the principle. (talking to the people coming forward for pieces of the prayer cloths) You have to give. If you don’t have any money then you’d better get a penny in your hand or something.”

(Refusing to give the pieces of prayer cloths to children) “I can’t give this to kids. It’s too heavy.”

a prayer cloth too heavy????

“The Lord told me to give you these socks… In your time of prayer, you are to wear them, and you will walk in authority. Be careful what you say, because what you say will come to pass.”

"God can't do anything in this earth realm except what we, the body of Christ, allow Him to do. Now that statement is so--that's so--that's so foreign and so contrary to tradition that, like I said, if they could get their hands on me right now most evangelicals would burn me at the stake and dismember me and feed me to the crocodiles, because they'll consider that statement to be just heresy."
("Ever Increasing Faith" program on TBN, 1 May 1992, audiotape PR11.)

"Adam, as I said, gave it [the earth] away to the serpent, to the Devil. As a result of it, he got his behind kicked out of the garden. He went out of Eden, out of the garden. He began to wander around, and he has troubles from day one. Now God was out of the business. God was out of the earth realm. God had no more stock in this earth realm. No more. None at all. Nothing He could do. Not a thing in the world He could do. . . .The only way God could get back into this earth realm, He had to have an invitation. Ha-hah! He had to have an invitation. And so, God looked around--saw different men, saw Noah, saw different ones. He gave them a few instructions. They did what He said. So and so and so and so. But, finally, He got to a point where He had His plan ready for operation. And He saw a man named Abraham."
("Ever Increasing Faith" program on TBN, 1 May 1992, audiotape PR11.)

"The Bible says that He had a treasurer--a treasury (the bible called it "the bag" not a treasury); that they had one man who was the treasurer, named Judas Iscariot; and the rascal was stealing out of the bag for three-and-a-half years and nobody knew that he was stealing. You know why? Because there was so much in it, He couldn't tell. Nobody could tell that anything was missing. If He had three oranges in the bottom of the bag and he stole two of them, don't tell me He wouldn't know that some was missing. Beside that, if Jesus didn't have anything, what do you need a treasury for? A treasury is for surplus. It's not for that which you're spending. It's only for surplus--to hold it until you need to spend it. Therefore, He must have had a whole lot that needed to be held in advance that He wasn't spending. So He must have had more than He was living on."
("Ever Increasing Faith" program on TBN, 23 November 1990)

"The whole point is I'm trying to get you to see--to get you out of this malaise of thinking that Jesus and the disciples were poor and then relating that to you- thinking that you, as a child of God, have to follow Jesus. The Bible says that He has left us an example that we should follow His steps. That's the reason why I drive a Rolls Royce. I'm following Jesus' steps."
("Ever Increasing Faith" program on TBN, 9 December 1990)

"Do you think that the punishment for our sin was to die on a cross? If that were the case, the two thieves could have paid your price. No, the punishment was to go into hell itself and to serve time in hell separated from God. . . . Satan and all the demons of hell thought that they had Him bound. And they threw a net over Jesus and they dragged Him down to the very pit of hell itself to serve our sentence."
(Ever Increasing Faith Messenger [June 1980], 7; quoted in D.R. McConnell, A Different Gospel [Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 1988], 120.)

When I first got saved they didn't tell me I could do anything. What they told me to do was that whenever I prayed I should always say, 'The will of the Lord be done.' Now, doesn't that sound humble? It does. Sounds like humility, it's really stupidity. I mean, you know, really, we insult God. I mean, we really do insult our Heavenly Father. We do; we really insult Him without even realizing it. If you have to say, 'If it be thy will' or 'Thy will be done'--if you have to say that, then you're calling God a foolbecause He's the One that told us to ask. . . . If God's gonna give me what He wants me to have, then it doesn't matter what I ask. I'm only gonna get what God wants me to have. So that's an insult to God's intelligence."
("Ever Increasing Faith" program on TBN,16 November 1990)

Never say "Lord if it be thy will".
(Success in Life, recorded 12/14/91)

how can you glorify God in your body, when it doesn't function right? How can you glorify God? How can He get glory when your body doesn't even work?...What makes you think the Holy Ghost wants to live inside a body where He can't see out through the windows and He can't hear with the ears? What makes you think the Holy Spirit wants to live inside of a physical body where the limbs and the organs and the cells do not function right?...And what makes you think He wants to live in a temple where He can't see out of the eyes, and He can't walk with the feet, and He can't move with the hand?...The only eyes that He has that are in the earth realm are the eyes that are in the body. If He can't see out of them then God's gonna be limited...

DAVID EELLS





"The trinity came from Catholicism, it didn't come out of the bible by the way, it came from Catholicism."
(David Eells - 8-04-2004, Oneness, Trinity or truth? - Part 1)

Oh really Mr Eells?

What bible do you read?

Let's see what God's word says:

John 14:16
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

In the above verse we have God the Son, praying to God the Father, and he shall give you ANOTHER Comforter, that HE may abide with you forever, whom we know to be the Holy Spirit.

John 14:26
But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 16:7
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
John 16:8
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
John 16:9
Of sin, because they believe not on me;
John 16:10
Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
John 16:11
Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
John 16:12
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
John 16:13
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
John 16:14
He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.
John 16:15
All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.

2 Corinthians 13:14
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, [be] with you all. Amen.

Ephesians 4:4
[There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
Ephesians 4:5
One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
Ephesians 4:6
One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.

1 John 5:7
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

The baptist confession of faith 1689 does a very good job of explaining the biblical doctrine of the Holy trinity:

Baptist confession of faith - chapter 2 - God and the Holy Trinity

The Lord our God is the one and only living and true God; Whose subsistence is in and of Himself

- Who is infinite in being and perfection; Whose essence cannot be comprehended by any but Himself;

- Who is a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts, or passions

- Who only has immortality

- Who dwells in the light which no man can approach, Who is immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, in every way infinite, most holy, most wise, most free, most absolute;

- Who works all things according to the counsel of His own immutable and most righteous will, for His own glory;

- Who is most loving, gracious, merciful, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth;

- Who forgives iniquity, transgression, and sin;- Who is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him;

- and Who, at the same time, is most just and terrible in His judgements, hating all sin and Who will by no means clear the guilty. God, having all life, glory, goodness, blessedness, in and from Himself, is unique in being all

- sufficient, both in Himself and to Himself, not standing in need of any creature which He has made, nor deriving any glory from such.

- On the contrary, it is God Who manifests His own glory in them, through them, to them and upon them. He is the only fountain of all being; from Whom, through Whom, and to Whom all things exist and move.

- He has completely sovereign dominion over all creatures, to do through them, for them, or to them whatever He pleases.

- In His sight all things are open and manifest; His knowledge is infinite, infallible, and not dependant on the creature.

- Therefore, nothing is for Him contingent or uncertain.- He is most holy in all His counsels, in all His works, and in all His commands.

- To Him is due from angels and men whatever worship, service, or obedience, they owe as creatures to the Creator, and whatever else He is pleased to require from them.

In this divine and infinite Being there are three subsistences, the Father, the Word or Son, and the Holy Spirit. All are one in substance, power, and eternity; each having the whole divine essence, yet this essence being undivided.

The Father was not derived from any other being; He was neither brought into being by, nor did He issue from any other being.

- The Son is eternally begotten of the Father.

- The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son.

- All three are infinite, without beginning, and are therefore only one God, Who is not to be divided in nature and being, but distinguished by several peculiar relative properties, and also their personal relations.

- This doctrine of the Trinity is the foundation of all our communion with God, and our comfortable dependence on Him.


Now that we have that cleared up, let's move to the next heretical statements of David Eells.

"When I started seeking the Lord about this, the Lord sent a man to me who had also been a oneness and a trinitarian and while I was in the oneness church I was arguing with this brother in a room full of people, some were oneness and some were trinitarian."
(David Eells - 8-04-2004, Oneness, Trinity or truth? - Part 1)

He then explains what happens during this debate:
"The Lord actually tricked me into deliverance because the thought came into my head and i accepted it, the thought was 'you're not getting anywhere with this guy, what you need to do is set your doctrine down just for a minute and try to look at this thing through his eyes, so you can better understand where he's coming from.
And i tell you, i no sooner did that than a (demon) spirit went right off the top of my head, there was a presence in me that went right out through the top of my head."

(David Eells - 8-04-2004, Oneness, Trinity or truth? - Part 1)

David then explains how he had renounced his former oneness beliefs and the people in his church were praying for him because thy were of oneness theology.
There was one man in the church by the name of Wayne, he was both praying for and talking against David because he had rejected the oneness doctrine.

David explains:
"This brother was at home, on the carpet in his living room and stretched out on the floor, he said 'Lord, I am praying and asking you Lord, don't let him be decieved, deliver him from that doctrine, don't let him be decieved."
(David Eells - 8-04-2004, Oneness, Trinity or truth? - Part 1)


Wayne then came to church and told David and some others what had happened while he was praying.



"What happened while he was praying was, he was lying on his carpet with his face on the floor, with his hands out straight, kinda like he was lying on a cross, he said 'David, I don't know what you got, but you got something because i've been praying and the Lord picked me up off the floor, in the air, in the middle of the room, and he said to me, 'I'm teaching him the true relationship of the Father and the Son." And then he set him back down on the carpet."
(David Eells - 8-04-2004, Oneness, Trinity or truth? - Part 1)



Then Eells claims he was taught the truth from the bible.



what was this apparent truth he was taught?



Let's hear what David said:



"God the Father always existed in eternity, always existed in eternity, but the Son did not, The Son had a beginning. The Father had no beginning, the Son had a beginning." (
David Eells - 8-04-2004, Oneness, Trinity or truth? - Part 1)
