“Naturally, the devil tried to shut down this living, breathing Church. He wanted dry bones. He began to take the freshness of God and put Ecclesiastical dogma on it. He used theological understanding(doctrine/the study of God’s word) to water down the fire.”
(Jesse Duplantis, Voice of the Covenant magazine, November 1997, page 7)
“The very first thing on Jesus` agenda was to get rid of poverty! Would you like to know why some people, including ministries, never get out of poverty? Its not because they aren’t smart. Its not because they don’t have windows of opportunity. Its because they’re not anointed. If you’re not anointed, poverty will follow you all the days of your life. His first objective was to get rid of poverty.”
(Nov. 1997 Voice of the Covenant magazine, page 5)
what does the bible say?
1 Corinthians 4:11-12 – Paul said:
“To the present hour we both hunger and thirst, and we are poorly clothed, and beaten, and homeless. And we labor, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure.”
Acts 3:6 – Peter said:
“Silver and gold I do not have.”
People say, “Well, I believe God. I don’t believe in that prosperity stuff.” It’s in the Bible. “Well, people got greedy with it.” Well, that’s true, but you don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. If poverty is so wonderful, how come Jesus left? He ain’t poor no more!… I’ve had many people say, you can’t believe like that! Well, bless God, watch me! What faith will do for one man, faith will do for another. … You watch me and this Mr. Cessna man here, I’ll be the first preacher to buy a brand new, spankin’ new, brand new jet that will fly all over this world. Get that sucker out of that glass hanger!…You can say all you want, Jack. I’ll fly by your house and tip the wing. I’m gonna get something for Jesus. I’m gonna do something for God”

“I can honestly say that the Lord has done everything I have prayed for”
(Heaven Close Encounters of the God kind – Page 44)
“Now the Lord told us to go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature, didn’t He? It costs billions of dollars to do that, between the satellite communication hookup and everything! Well, how come we haven’t done it yet? Because we’ve lost verse 4, we’ve lost verse 5, we’ve lost verse 7. Every once in a while we get blessed on verse 8. But just think if you got blessed 30, 60 or 100 fold on verse 4; 30, 60 or 100 fold on verse 5; 30, 60 or 100 fold on verse 7… every time you give God $50, He gives you $5000. Every time you give Him $100, He gives you $10,000. Every time you give Him $1000, He gives you $100,000. Every time you give him $100,000, $10 million. Before you know it, that building is yours, because they will sell it for the right price. You pick the denomination, God picks the multiplication.” …So it’s up to you what you give. But you see if you forget what you sow and do not name your seed, then the devil will steal your harvest and you don’t know – ‘God, the devil’s stolen’ – you can’t figure out what is happening…I had a man say, “You look so prosperous, Brother Jesse.” I said, “Well, I’m backed by a very rich Jew. Yeah!! Yes, I am! His Name is Jesus. I’m backed by Him.”
(Jesse Duplantis, TBN, Sept. 21, 1998)
“I will not fight the devil, I will walk on him.”
“Even the smallest amount of faith is enough to kick the Devils brains out”
“The lord spoke to me one time while I was preachin’ he said make me laugh, how do you make God laugh Benny?(speaking to Benny Hinn) he said the gift that I gave you let it come out of you .. so I said ok so I began to minister and I tell you what I have made God laugh. many many times. One time the funniest was I’m embarrassed to say this, this is when I first started preaching I knew enough to be dangerous you know how that is. We didn’t stay in hotels in those days,..Stayed in peoples homes…I got this apartment, I got this bedroom and I always take my bible before I go to sleep… when anyway I fell off to sleep with the bible hit me on the chest and I woke up and there’s this big gray object in the corner and it would move. That scared me but I wasn’t getting off that bed, I said no I ain’t getting off this bed, I said I rebuke you, you devil from hell get out of here get out of here…I spit and hollard and screamed and rebuke all until 5, 5:30 till my throat was horse. And the light began to come through the window and it was a raincoat hangin’ over a hat rack. I can’t believe I that I actually rebuked the raincoat for 3 hours. Now here’s the funny part I got mad at God, I said why didn’t you tell me? He said “Jesse that’s the funniest thing I ever saw.” Rebuking a raincoat boy.”
“I’m going to say something that may sound controversial. Not long ago I was in prayer in my own study, and I know the Lord just like you know the Lord. And man I went in there and started off my day with the lord and said ‘Lord Lord how you doing today. It’s going to be a great day. And I noticed the lord wasn’t acting right, …cause I know God, you know when your child is not felling good, right. Hinn, right! You know when something, you may not know what it is but he wasn’t acting right for lack of a better term. I know God I know him and I know the fulness of his presence , and I know him. And I said something’ wrong. And this is what I’m saying, it wasn’t with me. And then it hit me, I said Lord you had a bad day? Now watch this (whenever faith teacher says this you need to pay careful attention, here it comes) I said and he said “Yea my children have been disobeying me” then it dawned on me. I said somebody hurt you today, I said lord I don’t ever want to hurt you anymore so lord I’m going to cancel all my appointments and all this stuff that we call ministry and I’m gonna sit here and I don’t know how to say this God for a lack of better term, till you fell better. Cause so many people hurt him that day… Lord I said I’m just going to bless you I’m gonna praise you I’m gonna just call your name. And it dawned on me and the Lord went “Thank you Jesse.”
(Interview-This is Your day, Benny Hinn Feb. 2,000)
God sent us the comforter – His Holy Spirit – it is us who need comforting, this is just plain madness – Neither Jesse Duplantis or Benny Hinn know the Lord Jesus.
It gets worse
This is now Mr Duplantis teaching on the book of Genesis and the garden of Eden:
“He (God) didn’t have the foggiest idea what a horse was, he said maybe Adam might know what this is. He is made in my image and my likeness lets see what he says it is, because he has a speaking spirit just like God the speaking spirit.” “He brought them, that means he carried them…what do you call that Adam, do you see that he brought them. He didn’t say horsy get down the road and trot down there and find out what your name is, bird fly down there … no there not living. God is expecting Adam to do the same thing he did, “speak spirit!”
“Watch this, I don’t want you to believe this because I said it, He brought them to Adam to see what he would call them watch this and whatsoever Adam called ever what, say it louder, living creature, that was their name. When he brought them they weren’t livin ladies and gentleman, Adam did the exact same thing that God did when he formed him out of the dust of the ground and God said speak spirit. Now he said now your made in my image now you create. And he made Eve he could have made the whole complete universe but he said no you’ll create SPEAK spirit! Don’t tell me a women can’t preach she is speaking spirit.”
“Womens seed spoke just as God spoke Adam into existence as Adam spoke those animals into existence Mary spoke Jesus into existence. Don’t tell me a women cannot preach the gospel they got Jesus here without us.”
At my old church Jesse Duplantis came there every year. In 2007 and 2008 Jesse made a comment from the pulpit that realy offended me as a true believer of the word of God. He said 2 years in a row that God has all power in heaven but no authority on Earth, zero. He gave all the authority to us and the dominion is ours. Well, I have a problem with that because God is all powerful and God is the sovereign ruler and the judge over all things. God is Omnipotence which means that God is all-powerful or he has unlimited power. It is significant because it establishes God’s ability to carry out His sovereign will. No one or nothing can stop His decreed will from happening and nothing will stop His divine purposes from being fulfilled. I also believe that God has delegated some authority to us but in the boundarie of his word. The Word of Faith movement is dangerous because they say we have to give God permission and that God cannot do anything without us. They say we are little gods and so forth. They truly rape God of His sovereignity and his deity. This is truly another Gospel and and Jesus. The God and Jesus they talk about is not the God and Jesus that I serve or of the Bible. In Matt 7 God’s word says we shall know them by their fruits. In Galations 5 God’s Word tells us what fruits to look for and discern. The works of the flesh or the fruits of the Spirit. God is not on the outside looking in and his hands are not tied; God is in control, GOD IS SOVEREIGN. As Justin Peter’s says this is a call for discernment. God commands us in 1John 4;1 to try and test the spirits, so we must. My prayer is for God to open the eyes of the true believers, his Elect. You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you (before we were conceived in our mother’s womb) John 15 Galatians 1 “another Gospel” and 2 Cor. 11:4 “Another Jesus” We must study to show ourselves approved and not take Jesse or anyone elses word for it. God’s word is exalted above himself, that’s how unadultrated his word is, it is true and pure, and undefiled. God Bless.
Just recently in Augusta Georgia at a full gospel church Jesse Duplantis made a statement that was not scriptural. He said that he heard his deceased mother speak to him. This is a lie. The dead do not speak to us. The pastor of that church agreed with him. Is there anyone who will discern every word spoken?
As for his claim that he “ministered” to God, what a crock! Read Acts, 17:24,25″ God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though HE NEEDED ANYTHING since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.” God doesn’t need anything from us! It is WE who need HIM!
