In this article we will attempt for the first
time to unveil the truth of Kenneth Copeland's Masonic membership. As Kenneth is
a closet, secret Freemason who does not want anyone to know this truth, it will
be a involving task that needs to look deeply into any specific clues. It is a
trademark of most proud Masons to leave key symbols veiled into pictures and
also to use various keywords in speeches or secret handshakes. Proof of this can
be found in Masonry's most common definition of itself as being 'Freemasonry is
a peculiar system of Morality, veiled in Allegory, and illustrated by Symbols.'
This is taken directly from the second degree initiation and evidence that it is
still currently used was proven to me recently when I attended a Masonic open
day and heard that same description. The application of this quote in regards to
Copeland will be discussed below.
Kenneth Copeland started his ministry under
Oral Roberts 33rd Degree Freemason as a pilot.
Kenneth was on TV sometime around June 1997 praising Oral Roberts as they
are close friends.
Evidence that Oral Roberts is a 33rd Degree Freemason will be compiled and
published as soon as possible.
Kenneth Copeland chants the words "I
AM" which is a Masonic initiation term.
"And I say this with all respect, so that it don't upset you too bad.
But I say it anyway: When I read in the Bible where He says, "I
AM," I just smile and say, "Yes, I AM, too." Believers Voice
of Victory broadcast July 9 1987
During the ceremonies of the Masonic ritual for the Royal Arch degree,
the candidate is asked, "Brother Inspector, what are you?" and he
replies, "I AM THAT I AM."
When Jesus told the jews before Abraham was "I AM" he was claming
to be the God of Moses who went by that name. This is why they tried to kill
him immediately. Kenneth is claiming to be a God.
33rd Degree Freemason Robert Schuller also endorses his followers to chant
"The most effective mantras employ the "M" sound. You can get
the feel of it by repeating the words, "I am, I am," many times
over.... Transendental Meditation or TM... is not a religion nor is it
Peace of Mind Through Possibility Thinking, pp. 131-32
Benny Hinn whom I suspect is a Freemason, also tells Christians to chant
"Don't tell me you have Jesus. You are everything He was and everything
He is and ever shall be.....Don't say, 'I have.' Say , 'I AM, I AM, I AM, I
AM, I AM.' Our Position in Christ #2-The Word Made Flesh audiotape Side 2
Kenneth Copeland has stated that Jehovah
means Half Male/ Half Female and that God is as much female as he is male.
He amplifies this strange teaching by also saying that Adam was originally
half male and half female.
According to the book "The Secret Teachings Of Freemasonry" by
Gordon Mohr this is exactly what the Masonic Lodge teaches:- (on pages
In his first initiation stages he (the Freemason) learns: 1 - That the rite
of initation for Apprentice Masons represents in dramatic fashion the origin
or birth of Nature's god - the Great All. It signifies the non-existence of
a supernatural person God, such as that of Christianity. It signifies that
the two principles of "matter" and "form",
"male" and "female," are always eternally
generating," (reproducing). It looks on God as a hermaphrodite, and
creation as the beginning of the "generation process." Taken from:
Speculative Masonry, by Brother J. Yorke, Grand Master of the Ancient Rite
pages 3 & 54
2 - The initation rite into the Second Degree, represents the moral
condition of nature's god, always in labor, always reproducing. Again it
looks on God as hermaphroditic, and states that his name JEHOVAH, means
"generation." Meaning to say, HE-SHE, the two sexes in one. From
Speculative Masonry page 14 & Mackey's Lexion pages 126-129
The dual principle of "male" and "female" is represented
by the "square and compass." The "compass" represents
OSIRIS, the male god of the Egyptians, while the "square" is the
symbol representing ISIS, the female goddess of Egypt - both are sexual
symbols. Taken from: Ragon's Cours. Philosophique page 102
This reference to the square and compass is significant as Copeland has
placed these symbols on one of his tape covers.
Copeland teaches similar things that the
early Mormons leaders who were also Freemasons taught.
While the Mormons teach that God lives on a planet near the star Kolob,
Copeland says that his hermaphroditic god also lives on a Mother Planet:-
"Heaven has a north and a south and an east and a west. Consequently,
it must be a planet."
Spirit, Soul and Body I 1985 audiotape #01-0601, side 1
"You don't think earth was first, do you? Huh? Well, you don't think
that God made man in His image, and then made earth in some other image?
There is not anything under this whole sun that's new. Are you hearing what
I'm saying? This is all a copy. It's a copy of home. It's a copy of the
Mother Planet. Where God lives, He made a little one just like His and put
us on it." Following the Faith of Abraham I, 1989 audiotape #01-3001,
Compare what Freemason-Mormon Brigham Young stated "Adam is our father
and our God" with Copeland's quote:-
"Adam, in the Garden of Eden, was God manifested in the flesh."
Following the Faith of Abraham I, side 1
Also compare Freemason-Mormon founder Joseph Smith's teaching that if you
were to see God today "you would see him like a man in form - like
yourselves in all the person, image, and very form as a man." with
Copeland's following description of his god:-
Copeland decribes God as "a being that is very uncanny the way he's
very much like you and me. A being that stands somewhere around 6'2",
6'3", that weighs somewhere in the neighbourhood of a couple of hundred
pounds or a little better, has a span of 9 inches across." Spirit, Soul
and Body I audiotape Side 1 1985
God spoke Adam into existence in authority with words. These words struck
Adam's body in the face. His body and God were exactly the same size."
Holy Bible, Kenneth Copeland Reference Edition 1991, 45, emphasis in
"[Adam] was the copy, looked just like [God]. If you stood Adam upside
God, they look exactly alike. If you stood Jesus and Adam side by side, they
would look and sound exactly alike."
Authority of the Believer IV 1987, audiotape #01-0304, side 1
On the cover for Copeland's audiotape series
entitled 'How To Build Your Firm Foundation.' Remember the main definition of
Masonry as being 'Freemasonry is a peculiar system of Morality, veiled in
Allegory, and illustrated by Symbols.'
This is exactly what we have right here. Copeland has placed the chief Masonic
symbols of the square and compass here that to most people the true meaning is
veiled in an allegorical style.
ALLEGORY, fictional literary narrative or artistic expression that conveys a
symbolic meaning parallel to but distinct from, and more important than, the
literal meaning. Allegory has also been defined as an extended metaphor. The
symbolic meaning is usually expressed through personifications and other
symbols. In art, an allegorical painting or sculpture is one that has a symbolic
meaning underlying the surface image.
More symbols of Freemasonry are incorporated
into Copeland's 'Shout' magazine for kids. Around Kenneth's neck is an eagle
above an inverted triangle. I have seen this symbol on a Masonic certificate
before. The female has an inverted 5 pointed star placed on her shirt. This
symbol represents the 'Order of the Eastern Star' which is a Masonic order for
women! Is this a coincidence? Now Copeland has placed the main symbols of
Masonry and the Eastern Star on his covers. When 33rd Degree Freemason Robert
Schuller wanted to express his secret membership in the Lodge he used the 33rd
Degree symbol of a double headed eagle and sent it out to many people without
them realizing what he was declaring to his Masonic brothers worldwide. 33rd
Degree Freemason Oral Roberts used the inverted triangle in his University logo
which has a hidden Masonic design to it. Another odd element is that the
Freemasons veiled the symbols of the square, compass, inverted star and triangle
into the street layout of Washington D.C. These are the 3 symbols that Copeland
has placed on the 2 mentioned covers. As I write this he is also presently in
Washington conducting a rally.
Kenneth Copeland started work under a 33rd Degree Freemason whom he has a strong
friendship with. He claims to be 'I AM' which is a Masonic initiation term. His
teaching about his hermaphroditic god match up exactly with what Masonry teaches
and his teaching on the size and likeness of God match up with what the early
Freemason-Mormon leaders also taught. Add to this the veiled symbols of
Freemasonry that he has placed on 2 covers, possibly more.
I would have never suspected Copeland of being
a Freemason if it were not for his heretical teachings including his belief that
God was gang raped and sodomised by homosexual Roman soldiers. If so then God's
blood would be impure and unable to redeem. Please click on the link below for

The deciding factor to publish this information
came after a friend of mine received information from an ex-Mason that stated
that he has been in attendance in Masonic meeting when Copeland was present. At
the moment this man wishes not to reveal himself. He possibly has some firm
documented evidence that we will try to obtain. I do not know who this man is
but my friend is trying to obtain more information. Another thing that helped
verify these facts is a research project in the US that has gained some proof of
these allegations. I am currently trying to contact these men so I can add their
research to this page. What I do know is that they are both 'Born-again'
Christian ministers whose credentials have been checked out. I will amplify on
these details later.
