CHUCK PIERCE ANSWERS CRITICS OF GLENN BECK MANTLING [Excerpts]
Chuck Pierce offered Glenn Beck a "new mantle for the future" at a ceremony at the Global Spheres Center on Sunday morning in Corinth, Texas.
Although most supported the move, critical voices are rising up against Pierce for mantling a Mormon. Now, Pierce is responding to those voices:
"I know many of you have concerns about Glenn Beck being a guest at Global Spheres, while others thought it was the greatest thing that ever happened. Falma Rufus asked me to host her family, including her new son in the Lord, Glenn Beck. Because of my love and honor for Falma, I was very blessed to do so. I would do the same for any of you. At Global Spheres, we are called to host revival.
"Concerning Glenn Beck and his family, I enjoyed being with and hosting them. Jesus would have done the same. Glenn is a Mormon. However, many prophets have prophesied that those in the Mormon religion will have revival. How would that ever happen without someone like Falma praying and someone like me opening my heart to embrace the opportunity? I honestly know that it is "not by might nor by power but by the Spirit" that any of this can change.
"Glenn Beck, like Cyrus, has a voice to change this nation. Cyrus had God's mantle to do so. Mr. Beck also has a mantle now that can be used to spread a new fire in this land. He has a heart to see our nation continue to embrace Israel. That is our common ground. If he continues to embrace the God of Israel, then he will eventually know His fullness. Yesterday, we also had visitors that were Catholic, carnal and lost. They are all searching. They are all welcome! Romans says, 'How can they know without a preacher?' So be blessed today as you pray!"
[TBC: We have exposed some of the false teaching advanced by Chuck Pierce (see https://www.thebereancall.org/book/export/html/8902). His recent "mantling" (a reference to the mantle of Elijah and his giving Elisha that mantle) shows Pierce as too willing to operate outside of Scripture and his explanation for his actions sadly mangles Scripture. Pierce states, "Glenn Beck, like Cyrus, has a voice to change this nation." Cyrus did nothing to change his nation or Israel. He issued a decree allowing Israel to rebuild the temple, but that's it. Pierce also references "prophets" (but not biblical) who have "prophesied that those in the Mormon religion will have revival." Mormons do not know the Christ of the Bible, but still follow the "Christ" taught by false prophet Joseph Smith who received a gospel from an alleged angel from heaven. "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Galatians:1:8).]
