What these frauds don’t seem to understand is that diseases like the coronavirus are not “demons” that need to be “conquered,” they are the judgment of God on a fallen and cursed world. Jesus has already defeated sin and death, but the curse of this world remains — and there is no amount of faux faith-healing, naming and claiming, or declaring that’s going to stop it.
God is sovereign over the coronavirus and when and if God wants to remove this threat from us, he will. God has blessed Western society with medical advancements and technology that allows us to fight these things to a certain extent. But again, that is a gift from God.
Bethel Church, however, continues to promote their false faith-healing propaganda — even though they recently closed their “healing rooms” due to the coronavirus (because apparently their faith was too weak) — and are “declaring” victory over the virus.
From Bethel Church and Christianity Facebook page reports:
Theresa Dedmon and her husband declare that the Corona Virus has been conquered in Jesus name and it cannot stand in the presence of God.
Theresa is a minister of arts at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry and sells many of her wares through the Bethel church store. (Destiny pants being a favorite product)
In this video posted on their public page you can hear them in their own words declare the Corona virus defeated.
If you are looking for a respite from worry regarding the spread of this virus, it looks like Bethel church is the place to be. They have overcome what the medical professionals have not by a simple declaration! Amazing!
You may want to bring your own toilet paper supply as I’m not sure if they have mastered TP duplication yet.
Here is a link for Theresa’s own page and her description of what she does and believes.
Bethel Church in Redding, CA is a cult that is pastored by Bill Johnson which has been proven over and over to be a fraud. Bethel kicked out a student last year after she began to raise concerns about the cult-like practices of the school the church operated. The church has openly embraced Roman Catholicism on multiple occasions.
The church has taken an open stance on “gay Christianity,” defends female pastors, and one pastor even said that Jesus asked him for forgiveness — let that sink in. They practice grave-sucking, necromancy, they create false manifestations of the Holy Spirit, and they spent days trying to raise a two-year-old from the dead — of course, unsuccessfully. It is safe to say that whatever silly declaration these frauds impose on God’s sovereign will can be discarded without further ado.
