Why Do "Kenneth Copeland Ministries" Praise the Devil & Destruction?

Especially when Gloria Copeland sits and broadcasts her Death-&-Destruction Discussions with Billye Brim, the Queen of End-Times Scared-y-ism. Don't they know that 'whatever thing ye shall hold true on Earth shall be held true in Heaven'? that 'if you expect the Earth to come to an end, you're commanding Heaven to come to an end as well'? "End-times" ARE NOT what Christianity is about ... actually, Kenneth Copeland Ministries is closer to what it's about in their Prosperity Gospel preaching! How can we convince these "Christians" to turn away from their end-times falsehood and -to turn back to the Truth that Christianity IS about: Believing it! Willing it! Taking it! Having it! Being thankful for it! & Forgiving ALL!

The ministry is more of the hell fire & brimstone ministry which is basically what televangelists do I believe. Their message is basically here is what the word says, here's where it's stated, so get up and go to church! That's what I take from it.

Maybe that's how it looks in a passing-glance. A little patience reveals that their main ministry is The Prosperity Gospel---that--as Lord Jesus Christ is Our Blood-Covenant Brother and YHVH is His Father--God is Our Daddy and (through His Covenant with Abraham) WE ARE RICH! They focus a lot on that; why do they draw focus away from that by diving into the heresy (literally, 'thought-construction') of End-Times speculation?

Amen! Preach it! Many people don't understand the preaching of prosperity and think they shouldn't pray about finances. Poverty was also put on Jesus on the cross so that we would not have to have it, if we believe and 'lose it in Heaven'!

Hallelujah, Chrystal! Prosperity isn't about 'losing something to get something else,' it's about Having Abundance in All Things! (enjoying and wisely using the things you have, catching and taking the things you are given, appreciating the things that others are given and have). Thinking about that, it doesn't even MATTER why Kenneth Copeland Ministries delves into the garbage of 'end-times prophecy'; probably some Babylonian media-tricks, 'it will pass.'

They dont praise the Devil and Destruction. They praise God. The reason they teach what they teach is because of Revelations. When you study and research revelations and many other parts of the bible, you would sum it up by saying according to those scriptures, it looks like we are in the end times. One good scripture is Matthew 24, the last verse of that chapter. It says when Jesus will return, but the last thing that must happen is that all must hear of Him. They are doing so on TBN and other channels on television by sending satellites all over the world. It is amazing what space is covered now by their satellites. Kenneth and Gloria are awesome evangelist speaking God's word. I have many books by them. They are some of my favorites. You just have to believe as strongly as they do and know the word as well as they do to understand and appreciate their teachings. Please don't take this as offense. It is just that I have followed their teachings since I became a non-demonination member several years ago. If it weren't for those types of teachings, I would have lost my mind a long time ago.

I agree that their Good Teachings ARE Good (I've been a Partner with them for several years ... true, I just send in 10 or 20 dollars a year and -read all the letters and articles from them on my YouTube-channel (along with The Bible, some news-commentary and stuff on mythmanjay); but even the unfruitful branches of The Vine are well-kept if they support the fruit-producing branches! This world ends continuously! THAT was what He was saying; not that 'We' (His brothers-and-sisters) are going to EXPERIENCE an ending. Well, when He says "the end," He means 'the end of the struggle we're going through, the end of the evil,' NOT 'the end of eternity' or 'the end of this planet's existence'! Why would He grant destruction? "What you hold true on Earth will be held true in Heaven."

I am sorry. There's so much talk about the end of times right now, that I assumed you were talking about that. You know what they say about assuming! Lol! I guess I would have to see that show in order to answer sensibly. They are good people to be partners with. That's for sure. I wish I had seen it and heard what you heard so I could talk about it with you. Keep up the good work.

I'm talking about THEM (KCM, Billye Brim) talking about the end of the world. That's buying into 'the world's way' (what Brother Kenneth Copeland calls 'the Babylonian system,' the one that has to destroy things). I agree that things are destroyed (by moth and rot) as focus is moved to the care of new things and the unused things fall into disrepair; but they will NOT be destroyed as long as we're keeping watch! "A watched pot never boils!"

I am not commenting on Gloria Copeland or any other person. The Bible does tell us about the End of Time. Truly it will come. If God says it in the Bible you can bank on it that it is going to take place. God tells us how to be ready. Simply to accept him in our lives and when the end comes we go to heaven. Revelations in the Bible describes the End Times and what to look for. It is somewhat complicated, but if you study it and hear preaching about it, you will soon learn that it IS real. Real as we are ourselves. It may not take place in my or your lifetime, but it will take place, but Praising the Devil is not part of it. glowin100

Quote some of it to me, and tell me how it MUST mean "the End of Time." My God IS NOT a God of world-ending, but of world-beginning and -opening and -discovering. That is what we are to seek.
