Shortly after the car wreck Kenneth and Gloria attended an Oral Roberts partner meeting and that’s where Kenneth Copeland received his anointing for ministry.
At the end of the five-day meeting, Oral Roberts laid his hands on Kenneth. Moments later, while sitting in a chair, Kenneth looked up and saw a transparent vision of the people in the meeting. On the inside, their spirits looked weak and starved, but their heads were grotesquely enormous.
“It hit me so hard, I began to weep. I cried and asked, ‘What is this? What’s the matter with these people?'” Kenneth Copeland recalled.
And the Lord replied, These are people whose spirits-even though born again-are so untaught and so unfed with the Word of God, and their heads are so full of religion and tradition, they’re so untaught and their faith is so shriveled, they are spiritually helpless. Then the Lord added, Kenneth, you’re looking at the cream of the crop right here. You ought to see the bad ones…I have called you and anointed you to do something about this.
That’s when Kenneth Copeland learned what he was called to do.
“When Oral Roberts laid hands on me, that was the moment this ministry was born in my spirit.” Then Kenneth added, “Well, to tell you the truth, I think it was in there before. Because the day I was born, they brought me in to my mother and she took me in her hands and the first thing she did…she held me up and dedicated me to the ministry of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now, there isn’t any way you can get away from that.”
