Everybody needs to keep their eyes open because each piece of the end-time puzzle is  coming together.  Without a doubt, the religious tapestry patterned after the book of Revelation  is being subtly knitted  together right before our eyes.

When I had been  in ministry about two years, my search for guidance centered in Kenneth Copeland. So in the first week of October 1983, I travelled to Atlanta, Ga to sit at the feet of  Kenneth Copeland at his East Coast Believer’s Convention.

The personal significance of  this particular   convention was that  I had a front row seat where  I watched Copeland put the meat on the bones of the prosperity gospel. While I was  a young, impressionable, and  naïve minister,  I recall  that Copeland manifested a similar kind of “scratch my  head, well y’all, I am getting a message from God at this very moment,  so hold on!” kind of demeanor as he has similarly performed  in the above video regarding “him acting as prophet  to Donald Trump.

Thirty-three years have passed since that noteworthy  convention.  An awe-struck  Copeland follower   back then, I once imagined that if the Lord Jesus were to appear, he must look and act like Kenneth Copeland.  One thing only turned me off the man: THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL. I stopped sending  $100 a month as one of Copeland’s faithful “supporters when he sent me a “partner letter” asking for additional money to help him buy oil wells. He got those oil wells, but not with my donations.

Yet there is even more significance that has been eye-opening—a supernatural incident that took place in my hotel room in the wee hours of the night, the week I attended the 1983 East Coast Believer’s Convention.

it was around the 4th  night, as I was asleep, that  I was awakened  by a loud, bellowing, bass-sounding voice that loudly vibrated like a trumpet, drums, a hurricane, and a tornado at the same time,  bellowing through the walls on the loudest speaker I have ever heard!

 I was afraid. The voice bellowed :  COME OUT, SEPARATE! COME OUT, SEPARATE, over and over again.  It did not stop once  I was awake and on my knees!.

  Consider  the movie, the Ten Commandments, and Cecil B. DeMille’s rendition of God’s voice to Moses. There is a slight likeness. Notwithstanding,   the  voice in the hotel room in Atlanta   sharply blended additional sounds  of storms, drums and trumpets to the 29th power!!!.

In 1983, I assumed this  powerful, urgent message in 3 clear words was a personal  warning to  me to come out of the denomination I was in.  So in obedience, I came out when I returned home, only to go back  in 1987.  Eventually,  I came out of the entire institutional church and religious system   in 2004.

Yet, was there a simpler message that I overlooked?  Let”s face it!!! I was at the KCM Believer’s Convention.  God may have simply been warning me to come out from the teachings of Kenneth Copeland.  Five years later, after listening to Copeland, his wife and his associates , I finally “came out and separated myself from his teachings.”  Yet Copeland has influenced all charismatic ministers. The  truth is that  I continued to listen to Joyce Myer and others until the turn of the century  when I permanently  turned off Christian television.

Yet there is more.

There are several millionaire  ministers on Trump’s ministerial advisory council.  It seems that Kenneth Copeland who is one of the chief architects of the prosperity gospel, is now imagining  himself as “Trump’s Prophet.”  Perhaps the Lord wanted me to remember His voice in the storm in 1983 as a sign regarding Trump/Copeland  in 2016 and beyond.

Is Copeland  the False Prophet?

Soon, time will tell. The dragon (Satan) will give power to the beast via the supernatural assistance of the false prophet. Here is a well known scripture concerning the beast:

Revelation 13:1-5
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. ( 3 and 1/2 years)

The Antichrist aka the beast  is primarily a political, financial  and military leader. However,  the false prophet is a religious leader. In this end-time duo,  we have political power, military power, joined with religious power. Political power, military power will dominate the outward world with spiritual power dominating the souls of mankind.

So Satan will supply  the beast with a supernaturally empowered  companion who will promote the beast’s  power and assist  him greatly by swaying the hearts of people into satanic religion.  The False Prophet  will cause the world to worship the Antichrist as if he were God. Therefore, its clear to me that this person must be globally influential within the ranks of Charismatics.

So the power of the False Prophet will enhance the power that is political or military or economic. As such,   the  false prophet  will have great religious power because he  will convince the world that this Antichrist is God and is the only hope of salvation during this time of Tribulation. They will accept  the lie of the False  Prophet  and as such bow down and worship the Antichrist as if he were God, and they will be eternally  damned with him.

The work of the False  Prophet  is critical to the effort of Satan because the in the final analysis, Satan’s primary goal is to be worshipped.  When the beast  is worshipped, then Satan will also be worshipped.

Kenneth Copeland is a man who 33 years ago, I perceived as the epitome of what I believed that  God in the flesh must be like.  Copeland can speak in tongues for hours and then turn around and interpret what he has uttered. Copeland’s influence on charismatic religion worldwide is impressive, to say the least.  There is not a charismatic minister anywhere in the world who has not been directly or indirectly influenced by him.

So does Copeland have  what it takes to be the False Prophet?

Most definitely.

Also his most influential entrée  with a billionaire  like Trump is Copeland’s rags to riches testimony and his worldwide orchestration and spreading  of the prosperity gospel message.

It is certainly  important to keep an eye on this.
