A Charismatic evangelical pastor Bishop Gerald O. Glenn died of COVID-19 just weeks after proudly showing off how packed his Virginia church was — and vowing to keep preaching “unless I’m in jail or the hospital.”
First of all, let me say how terrible it is when something like this happens, it doesn't make me happy to have to write an article like this. But secondly, and I have been saying this for over a decade now, as much as pastors and preachers in the Charismatic Church like to think they have the apostolic signs of miracle healing, they absolutely don't. Bishop Gerald O. Glenn, just two weeks ago, boasted about how 'people are healed' in his church, and that he didn't have to practice social distancing like everyone else.
"Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away." 1 Corinthians 13:8-10 (KJB)
Why? Because he said he was 'essential', and that he 'talks to God'. Guess that meant he could do whatever he wanted, and wouldn't get sick. Well, now Bishop Gerald O. Glenn is talking to God face to face since he died of coronavirus infection yesterday. So much for those 'healing lines' that Charismatics like to brag about so much, so much for the 'name it and claim it' Prosperity Gospel false teaching.
If you are a Charismatic preacher, where are all the healing lines? You who love to boast about laying hands on people and healing them of 'all manner of diseases', where are you guys now? Where is your 'God-given, miracle anointing'? You are not conducting 'healing services' because you are all frauds who promise people a healing, in exchange for a hefty 'seed faith' donation. The COVID-19 coronavirus has proved you all to be fakes and phonies you truly are. And guess what? The website for the church has been taken down, and their YouTube channel scrubbed clean of all content. This is what happens when false teachers listen to their own preaching.
