Here is the latest article from one of our favourite polemicists, our good friend Rick Becker from the ‘Famine In The Land’ blog. Rick confronts the latest ‘vain declarations’ made by false Bethel leaders Kevin and Theresa Dedmon.
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them.” 1 John 4:1-6
Rick Becker writes:
Kevin and Theresa Dedmon are products of the Bethel cult. The couple believed their declarations had an effect on the Carr fire, and their delusion continues as they declared healing over people infected with the Coronavirus. Sitting with the couple are at least three people wearing glasses – one would think they would begin declaring healing over those sitting a few feet from them. If the Coronavirus cannot live in the presence of God, we must ask the question, which presence is the bespectacled Bill Johnson hosting?
More about the dead wrong Dedmons:
Kevin Dedmon “taught revival Kingdom theology, Treasure Hunts and healing in the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry for 13 years. He was also on the leadership team of Bethel Church during that time, where he developed Treasure Hunts, Firestarters, HomeFire and activating church members in evangelism as well as training new believers and new members in a revival supernatural lifestyle…Kevin, along with his wife Theresa, spend their time speaking at conferences and churches, writing and developing curriculum in which people are equipped, empowered and activated in miracles, healing and prophetic as a normal lifestyle of the believer.” – kevindedmon.com
Theresa Dedmon creator of the infamous “Destiny” cards is part of Bethel’s pastoral staff, and oversees the creative arts department for the church and School of Supernatural Ministry. For $44.95 you can purchase a pair of “Stairway to Heaven” leggings from Dedmon’s catalog and “Go from yoga to dinner in our body hugging printed leggings!” Dedmon’s sales pitch: “My fashion designs embody the prophetic art they are created from. Wearing my art enhances your awareness of God’s presence, and helps you become a walking encounter of Heaven’s message to those around you.”
You can watch the video from Dedmon here, the clip below contains the declaration over the virus.
Transcript: “We want to release the kingdom of God and presence and power to all those in our Facebook communities. And so today I want to release miracles for people who have the Coronavirus, you know there’s absolutely no way that this thing can live in the presence of God, and we say that our declarations make a differencethat we have the antidote, we have the answer to this virus, medical science doesn’t, but the presence and power of God can overcome this. And so we declare today that those that have it, those that think they’re going to get it, we declare no fear, and we declarehealing in Jesus name, speedy and full recovery.”
