Word-Faith teacher. Known for his outrageous claims and fundraising tactics. Not surprisingly, his emphasis is on the so-called 'Prosperity Teachings,' which hold that God wants you to be rich (also known as "Name it and Claim it," or - more appropriately - "Blab it and Grab it.")
In a 2012 letter announcing a conference in the Netherlands, Cerullo says:
A triple anointing is coming and this triple anointing will be released at the Conference. [...]
Do you believe that God still speaks to me? As God's servant I am telling you that if you will do whatever it takes to get to our Prophetics, Healing Conference & Pentecost Celebation 2012, then you receive authority to confront every stronghold of the enemy and demolish that stronghold in your family, your boday, your finances, your community, and your nation ! ! !
It will personally release an anointing upon you that will be so infused with the supernational power of God that you will leave this Conference armed and ready to face every circumstance and every satanic assault with the assurance of 100 percent victory:
100% victory in your family, your finances, your property, your health, your unsaved loves ones!
Clearly, Cerullo's claims are those of a man given to fantasy -- if not outright deception.

Did you know that from the beginning of time the whole purpose of God was to reproduce Himself?... And when we stand up here, brother, you're not looking at Morris Cerullo; you're looking at God. You're looking at Jesus
"The End Time Manifestation of the Sons of God," Morris Cerullo World Evangelism tape 1
As I lay there on the floor in this condition, my spirit was taken out of my body and the next thing I knew, I was in the heavens... Suddenly, in front of this tremendous multitude of people, the glory of God appeared. The Form that I saw was about the height of a man six feet tall, maybe a little taller, and twice as broad as a human body with no distinguishing features such as eyes, nose, or mouth.
Morris Cerullo, The Miracle Book (San Diego, CA: Cerullo Word Evangelism, Inc., 1984), x-xi.
You represent all that God is and all that God has... Jesus was the visible expression of God. Jesus was the Son of the Living God. Now, who are you? Sons of God... everyone say it. What is working inside of us is the manifestation. When you look at me, you are looking at Jesus... To see Jesus was to see God. To see me is to see Jesus. Jesus knew who He was. Don't you think it is about time we know who we are?
Morris Cerully, reported by Jewel van der Merwe, "Joel's Army," Discernment Ministries.
