When Anointings Compete – Rafael Cruz Gets Some Pub From Kenneth Copeland

This piece over at Pulpit & Pen includes a video showing Arch Heretic Kenneth Copeland laying hands on GOP candidate Ted Cruz’s father.  Many supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz are unaware that dear ol’ dad is ensconced in the unbiblical New Apostolic Reformation movement (NAR). Copeland says he believes with all his heart that Ted Cruz “is called and anointed to be next President of the United States.” Really? Five years ago former Texas governor Rick Perry was approached by NAR “prophets” who convinced him that God had told them that he was the “anointed president” and that the state of Texas would lead the U.S. to an economic and spiritual recovery.  Obviously the voice that spoke to these self-professed prophets wasn’t God. We know this because Rick Perry flubbed up so badly during one of the debates that he had to drop out of the race.  Perhaps Gov. Perry felt he should be the one to cast the first stone at those who prophesied falsely…?  We may never know.

So, now to Seth Dunn’s report:

The people who go to Kenneth and Gloria Copeland’s “church” vote. They are American citizens who are entitled to governmental representation just as much as anyone else. Thus, it’s not surprising that the Ted Cruz campaign and its emissaries would court them for their vote.

After more than a decade of observation, I’ve learned that there’s not much American evangelicals like more than religio-political schemes that promise a return to good ol’ family values by the quick and easy one-off event of an election that will turn the country around. It’s a lot like a Word of Faith positive confession, really – get the right guy in the Presidency and most of our problems will get solved just like that. No muss, no fuss, no need for every-Christian involvement in societal rebuke, no felt obligation to repent individually for one’s own apathy and lack of action building the Kingdom of God. No need to suffer, sacrifice, or cast aside compromise and the fear of man and get out there and preach the Gospel boldly. It’s perfect. It’s hero worship rather than worship and service of God.

Which brings us to sparing a thought for the people who attend services at Kenneth Copeland’s “church”, how they are under the influence of wicked false teachers and engaging in false worship of God. Kenneth and Gloria Copeland are arch-heretics who proclaim numerous scripture-twisting false teachings.  These teachings include the following: Word-Faith Theology, Faith-Healing, Positive Confession, the Prosperity Gospel, and the “Little gods” Doctrine of Man.  To make matters worse, Kenneth Copeland claims that God gave him his own jet so that he could pray in private.  In reality, Kenneth Copeland duped thousands of misguided people into funding his “ministry” so that he could afford his own private jet.  Thus, no Christian, is justified in any kind of partnership or fellowship with Kenneth and Gloria Copeland for any reason.  Recently, self-proclaimed minister Rafael Cruz appeared at a Kenneth Copeland’s “Ministers Conference” to proclaim to the audience that “the cloud of the Holy Spirit descended upon (the) room” when his son Ted announced his decision to run for President of the United States.  He made this announcement standing next to a man who blasphemes God for a living.

The elder Cruz is careful to regale us all with the heroic tale of “seeking the Lord” and His direction for six months before announcing a run for President. Two hours in prayer at Ted Cruz’s pastor’s office followed, and we are told that “the final word” came from Heidi Cruz, Ted’s wife. This word from the Lord was: “Seek My face, not My hand,” and then of course a cloud of the Holy Spirit descended on the office.

Naturally, Ted Cruz responded with “Here am I, Lord. Send me.”

Finally, we see in the video a group of suits laying hands on Rafael Cruz to pray for the Cruz family. Can you imagine the anointing released? Just. . . just so much anointing. Anointing everywhere. One wonders how everyone in the congregation didn’t collapse into an immediate and hours-long Spirit-slain stupor.  Continue reading — watch the video

    Rafael Cruz also has Purpose Driven connections,

    Copeland – god gave him a jet, No Copeland Fleeced the “PARTNERS” wallets to get the jet

    Just like his Pastor Friend Mark T Barclay – Asking 80 “PARTNERS” in his partner letter to sow $1,000 each to paint his/gods plane in May of 2013.

    Oral Roberts Partners, Send me $8 Million or god will kill me by the end of the month.

    no Miracle or supernatural event just heavy shepherding and manipulation-Hagins Midas Touch book fell on deaf ears chapter 6 Avoiding abuses and false practices also Hagin himself was scamming offerings 100 fold return!!! to the giver!!

    The Laodecean church in action. What else would you expect?!

    • Ben February 11, 2016 at 9:22 am #

      Yes, You hit the nail right on the head. Laodiceans write; Rev 3:15-22

      In 2007 Copeland and John Hagee were on t.v. teaching and quoting this scripture.
      “thinking” that they were not any part of it!!!!

      EXACTLY Ed, the US moneywhore greedy rich church cults have all got their extorted bloodmoney “we are America’s judge and jury” hands in our govt…the root of these religious antichrist usurping of Americans right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness started in texasses…the “refuklican too right psycho religious white” have so far gone under the guise of teaparty, more aptly renamed teabaggers, then they tried patriots, now they call themselves conservatives…its doesnt matter what name they choose they will always end up tainting it…Instead of US churches using their taxpayer paid, congregational extorted $$$ to say, oh I dont know, what JESUS would do…feed the poor, help disadvantaged Americans…but nooooo they would much rather get into OUR govt like cockroaches and usurp Americans right to vote, rights to our own bodies…they are playing god of their father who is also a self-righteous prick. They do not represent, act or walk like the CHRIST of their claims of being a “christian”… just another word they have tainted beyond belief with their evil deeds of antichristianty
      Maybe instead of following the ways of the old testament and paul in the new testament they should follow the ONE who keeps knocking at their moneywhore doors but they refuse to answer because they are too buzy extorting big $$$ from their pyramid scammed deluded congregation to create political refuklican psycho religious superpacs to take away Americans civil rights and protective govt orgs in refuklican run red states.
      In FL we have our very own gerrymandered teabaggin thieving govrn, rick scat stole millions from medicare with his bogus medical company and yet is our teabaggin moneywhore refuklican vulture govrn for two terms
      Remember scotus anthony scumia, thank GOD HE took him out, he was a refuklican justice snake he had closed door meetings with refuklicans and was instrumental in eradicating the “Federal Voters Rights Act” which led the refuklicans smooth sailing to gerrymandering, voter suppression, blatant racism, sexism, and bigotry.
      Their defunding, deregulating of womens health clinics, downsizing the FDA, and the EPA, these are govt orgs that help and protect US American citizens from their undying lusts for $$$, power, lording over US and usurping our free will.
      They think themselves gods and they are, but not of my FATHER.
      They are definitely of the last days church of Laodicea, shame they are too deaf, dumb, blind and naked to heed their own warning from the Spirit.

        Debra Mathews,
        The damnedacrats have much blood on their hands as well. Abortion is their sacrament. Homosexuality is their creed. And stealing rights like the second ammendment and privacy their first love. The two parties are really just two wings of the same party. The big gov’t party.
        Don’t be fooled. The only thing they desire is power and money. They are two sides of the same coin. And the FDA and the EPA are lying stealing thieves. The EPA is bringing to fruition the goals of Obama. He said when he became President he would bankrupt coal. And they are doing it for him.
        Coal is 70% of our electrical power source. It costs 5 cents a kilowatt to produce. Natural gas costs 12 cents and solar and wind costs 22 cents. In other words it will cost you more than 4 times as much to power your house if coal goes away. A 100 dollar a month bill becomes 400 dollars a month. And coal is dependable. It is not dependent on the weather to make electricity. If coal goes away we will have rolling black outs and brown outs. America will become a third world country.
        FDA is pushing GMO’s on us all. They don’t want you to have a choice.

    So did Kenneth Copeland suddenly change his mind? I’m confused. He also laid hands on Donald Trump and prayed for him, along with Paula White, David Jeremiah and others.

    Oh, I suppose it was God who changed His mind on who He wants to “anoint” to be president. Cause we know for sure God has conversations with the powerful Kenneth…cause he’s a “little god” walking around on earth, you know.

    A disgusting, vile bunch these heretics all are. They are so unaware of God’s patience towards them. And His impending judgment.

      Yes, Did you see “Pastor” Steve Munsey in that video with Trump- Copeland calling down the blessing

      I’m surprised Steve didn’t look into the camera and declare a Debt- Breaking –
      Money- Multiplying Anointing to the first 50 people that sow a special love gift seed of $2016 dollars to any of the preachers here, Put your hand on the t.v. screen and come into agreement now with us and feel the anointing flow into your living-room!!!

      It’s Interesting Donald Trump is now playing the same christian cards as Obama did 8 years ago!!

        I’m still laughing.
        Blessings brother:-}

    Well this is certainly sad. I’ve been supporting Cruz for president. But if not him, whom?
