More on Todd Bentley’s Separation – An Unhealthy Relationship With a Female Staff Member

As time goes by, more light is being shed on the circumstances surrounding the separation of Todd and Shonnah Bentley.  While we continue to glean more insight into the travesty which is the Lakeland Outpouring, please don’t forget to remember Todd and Shonnah Bentley in your prayers.  Let us also consider ourselves, not thrusting upon ourselves the cloak of hypocrisy and unrighteousness.  Let us consider ourselves, lest we too should stumble.

Here is the latest news from Fresh Fire Ministries:

Aug 15 – From the Board of Directors

 

We wish to thank all of our friends and partners for the overwhelming flood of support and compassion we have received as a ministry on behalf of Todd and Shonnah Bentley. The many phone calls and emails of concern from people who genuinely love the Bentleys and Fresh Fire Ministries have been a great encouragement to all of us here during these past few days. In particular, the rallying of support and prayer for Todd and Shonnah by prominent leaders within the Body of Christ has been a beautiful indicator of the maturity and grace the Lord is bringing to his Bride.

We wish to acknowledge, however, that since our last statement from the Fresh Fire Board of Directors, we have discovered new information revealing that Todd Bentley has entered into an unhealthy relationship on an emotional level with a female member of his staff. In light of this new information and in consultation with his leaders and advisors, Todd Bentley has agreed to step down from his position on the Board of Directors and to refrain from all public ministry for a season to receive counsel in his personal life.  Source.

I’m glad to hear that Bentley has agreed to step down and refrain from public ministry, but this should have happened a long time ago.  Given the false doctrine he teaches, he should have never had a platform within the church to begin with.  When something like false doctrine isn’t enough to stop a man from preaching heresy within the church, it seems like marital strife is.  Are people now and only now beginning to pull away from Bentley?  That is not how things should be.  Still, there are those who follow and defend him regardless.  How sad.

My mind goes back to Bentley’s commissioning when Stacey Campbell, Che Ahn, and others were prophesying over Todd as if they were speaking the very words of God.  Was God not wise enough to foresee all of the sinfulness in Todd’s life?  Was God wrong, or were these so-called prophets speaking out of the abundance of their own wickedness instead of out of direction of the Holy Spirit when they were puffing up Bentley and prophesying over him that he was a mighty man of God?  I’m thinking that Campbell, Ahn, and others may be regretting their zeal to jump aboard the Bentley bandwagon today.  I’m hoping that those who follow these false-prophets will see this and flee.  Still, if history is any indicator, they will not.  They will continue in their wickedness, rejecting God’s truth and holding onto a lie.  We should all be in constant prayer in these last days.

    The error in their “prophecy” is so obvious, you wonder how anyone fell for it in the first place. However, according to Bob Jones, they only have to be correct about 65% of the time. (The Prophetic Ministry” Rick Joyner. Morningstar Prophetic Newsletter. Vol. 3, No. 2, p. 2) So they’ve covered their tracks, and the gullible will go right on believing in these people – instead of in Christ.

  2. Ken says:

    I will pray that God will restore Todd’s family for I believe in the convenant of marriage. I will also pray for the author of this article to learn how to love God’s family. God have mercy on His Children who throw stones at other Christians instead of praying for them.

    I will continue to support Todd Bentley, Bob Jones, Rick Joyner, Che Ahn and others. They need your prayers. I will always remember how God used Todd in Lakeland. I will remember the good and forgive the bad. The world needs a spiritual awakening. We need to see the power of God in this hour. We need to learn to love others. I thank God for the Florida Outpouring and I pray for more demonstrations of the power of God around the world.

    Dear . . . :
    Thank you for your E mail.

    I am not gloating over Todd Bentley’s exposure. I am still concerned about the blindness in the Body of Christ and the multitude of Christian souls that are being captured by the new breed of Christians that are being received by the Church.

    I am doing what God tells me to do. The reason that He led me to write these articles, He wanted to alert the Body of Christ concerning the fact the New Mystics, the New Breed, the Latter Rain and many other wolves are in the Church and stealing souls of young Christians. I have been in the deliverance ministry for 33 years I had the knowledge and used it to expose the occult nature of Bentley’s revival. I can tell you many people were lost and probably will never return to the Lord because of witchcraft that is being used by these people.

    Pastors have contacted me, telling me about their people leaving their churches. I got a call yesterday telling me about a local congregation losing 100 people. Churches in the area of the Lakeland Outpouring are closing because of the loss of funds and the destruction to them because of the Bentley revival.

    I’ve personally ministered to pastors and people that have gotten the Kundalini Spirit and restored them through casting it out.

    This is about more than a man called Todd Bentley. It is about a movement that is demonic and destroying God’s people. It’s about people doing witchcraft things and calling it Christian. It’s about blinded ministers taking Christian people through portals to the “Third Heaven” and introducing them to demonic angels that are then taking over their souls. It’s about goofy Christians leading the Body of Christ of young people while preachers have joined them and invited them into their churches, turning their churches into nightclubs with strobe lights. At the height of my sin life before I ever knew Jesus, I never experienced the darkness of “Club Mysterio” and trance dancing music that has been accepted into the churches. The New Mystical groups of so-called Christians are much bigger than Todd Bentley. God used Todd to reveal what was happening.

    Understand as you feel sorry for Todd but remember that it is God in control and exposed him. And it will be God if he is ever restored. However, while you are praying for Todd, don’t forget to pray for all the million poor people worldwide that are now walking around with a Hindu demonic snake coiled in the base of their spine that will torment them for the rest of their lives. Remember all those blinded pastors who have been blinded by deceiving demons that will fall into the ditch too.

    I know that you would like to think that just because Todd’s sins have uncovered his true spirit to those who could only understand immorality that the battle is over. Believe me, it’s not over. Today, the wolf in the pen was Todd, tomorrow, there’s an entire army called Joel’s Army marching to take the rest of Christianity to hell with it. It has many ministers that will step into Todd’s place to take over the Devil’s commission. This army is called the Latter Rain, the New Reformation Movement and the New Mystics, etc.

    There is not one person that God used to expose Todd Bentley’s false revival that is in delight of Todd’s fallen state. As far as letting the Body of Christ deal with this, I am the Body of Christ that is joined with all the other people that took their time to alert you that Todd Bentley’s spirit was dark. Many took their time to expose him and tell me . . . , why didn’t the leaders in the Body Christ warn you? Not one big minister, TV network, Christian Magazine, Christian Radio, Christian Newspaper, hardly any pastor, warned you. It seems that the “Body of Christ” that you want to deal with this was and is sound asleep.

    A pastor of a mega church in my town told his congregation, “I’m not going to tell you not to go to Lakeland but if you go, be discerning. Sheep are dumb and God put shepherds over them to protect them. What do think Jesus will say to that pastor at the Judgment Seat? Would a true shepherd open the gate to his sheep and say, go ahead out of the flock but be careful if you see the wolf?

    This is coming to a mega church in Jacksonville in October….

    So . . ., if you don’t wish to be informed about this dark religious spirit that is powerfully moving in our land, please, just asks to be removed from my newsletter. But, don’t write me about what I should or should not write about. Don’t write to me about praying for Todd Bentley and his family. I pray for whomever God tells me.

    And why would I care if Oprah goes to the Democratic Convention? I am doing absolutely nothing about that.

    Sincerely in Jesus’ service

  4. David James says:

    Just suppose you want to start a cult in 2008 to lead a billion sincere Christians away from The Trinity, Jesus Christ as Creator of The World, Original Sin, The Virgin Birth (and necessity for it), The Sinless life of Jesus Christ THE ONLY ANOINTED ONE (which is what CHRIST means), The Cross, The Death, The Resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ THE ONLY MEDIATOR who ALONE is THE ONLY WAY TO FORGIVENESS OF SIN AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

    What do you need ?

    A TV station which is branded Christian.
    A very expensive New York PR company which places (in guise of genuine bloggers) on blogs such as this and on Wikopedia and the mainstream media the fact that it is CHRISTIAN.
    Internet and Youtube marketing.
    Email lists of enthusiastic sincere Christians desperate for revival.
    People who have no knowledge of Church history AND MOREOVER REFUSE TO SEEK WISDOM (the first gift listed in 1 Corinthians 12 ahead of prophecy) which is the only gift God guarantees to all who ask (James’ letter) and which God wrote the sales manual for (Proverbs).
    People who have no knowledge that all really dangerous cults and herecies ALWAYS start inside the Church and often use a bible almost identical to The Bible…and 96% of times they quote accurate scriptures….(96.4% is 6.666 divided by 7).
    People who want healings and miracles as in Acts but reject the standard of holiness demanded in Acts (like
    Annias and Saphira).
    People who want abundant healings and supernatural like in Acts but do not realise prison, whippings, slavery, torture, execution (crucifixtion, being eaten by the lions,beheading, boiling in oil) and persecution were daily events for Christians including all The Apostles.
    Their children were enslaved, castrated, forced to work as prostitutes. Their homes were confiscated. Still want the package deal ?
    People who want to meet Angels and be in The Third Heaven but do not want the full price (Paul’s necessary painful constant THORN IN THE FLESH to avoid Paul getting puffed up with pride).

    An ultra greedy group of Christians who will do anything for money and popularity and bully any who question the movement.

    Nicolatians ie the type of power hungry types who want to enslave others and decide if and who other people can marry, work, live, talk to etc The Shepherding and Submission movement of the 1970s

    The sexually hungry who want a licence to force others to meet their lusts and will do anything to get it.

    You need to educate people to not think for themselves, indeed to see it as sinful, but rather obey Prophets who prophecy more in a day than all The Old Testament Prophets did in their lifetimes.

    You need to sell the idea, at least sow the seed, that
    people must not question leaders and equate leaders to Holy God Himself.

    But above all….well meaning people who will attack with huge force any who warn that cults do form from within The Church and The Bible expressly commands us to watch out for them. People who mistakenly think LOVE is GOD and do not understand God’s Love includes God’s Judgment (very severe) and God’s Justice as well as God’s Mercy.

    So Rory and Wendy Alec of God TV, Peter Wagner, Bob Jones, Patricia King, Che Ahn, Sharon Stone,
    Trevor Baker, Paul Cain, Rick Joyner, you have built your cult…..now God will show you that He will not be mocked.

  5. Mark 9:1 AND JESUS said to them, Truly {and} solemnly I say to you, there are some standing here who will in no way taste death before they see the kingdom of God come in [its] power.

    Mark 9:7 And a cloud threw a shadow upon them, and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My Son, the [most dearworthy] Beloved One. Be constantly listening to {and} obeying Him!
    Mark 9:8 And looking around, they suddenly no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus only.

    Mark 9:17 And one of the throng replied to Him, Teacher, I brought my son to You, for he has a dumb spirit.
    Mark 9:18 And wherever it lays hold of him [so as to make him its own], it dashes him down {and} convulses him, and he foams [at the mouth] and grinds his teeth, {and} he [falls into a motionless stupor and] is wasting away. And I asked Your disciples to drive it out, and they were not able [to do it].
    Mark 9:19 And He answered them, O unbelieving generation [without any faith]! How long shall I [have to do] with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to Me.
    Mark 9:33 And they arrived at Capernaum; and when [they were] in the house, He asked them, What were you discussing {and} arguing about on the road?
    Mark 9:34 But they kept still, for on the road they had discussed {and} disputed with one another as to who was the greatest.
    Mark 9:35 And He sat down and called the Twelve [apostles], and He said to them, If anyone desires to be first, he must be last of all, and servant of all.
    Mark 9:36 And He took a little child and put him in the center of their group; and taking him in [His] arms, He said to them,
    Mark 9:37 Whoever in My name {and} for My sake accepts {and} receives {and} welcomes one such child also accepts {and} receives {and} welcomes Me; and whoever so receives Me receives not only Me but Him Who sent Me.
    Mark 9:38 John said to Him, Teacher, we saw a man who does not follow along with us driving out demons in Your name, and we forbade him to do it, because he is not one of our band [of Your disciples].
    Mark 9:39 But Jesus said, Do not restrain {or} hinder {or} forbid him; for no one who does a mighty work in My name will soon afterward be able to speak evil of Me.
    Mark 9:40 For he who is not against us is for us.
    Mark 9:41 For I tell you truly, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to {and} bear the name of Christ will by no means fail to get his reward.
    Mark 9:42 And whoever causes one of these little ones (these believers) who acknowledge {and} cleave to Me to stumble {and} sin, it would be better (more profitable and wholesome) for him if a [huge] millstone were hung about his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.

    Mark 9:49 For everyone shall be salted with fire.

    Mark 9:50 Salt is good (beneficial), but if salt has lost its saltness, how will you restore [the saltness to] it? Have salt within yourselves, and be at peace {and} live in harmony with one another.

    Now recently, this week with Todd Bentley’s divorce announcement, I was reminded when I was a at week long seminar decades ago and the preacher was preaching great and I admit I started to hero worship the preacher but on the last Friday afternoon session the preacher had preached some falsehood.. and I was drastically horrified, dismayed, as to how this could be, could his whole week’s teaching now also be in error. Next I prayed and asked God how could that be? why did it occur? and God replied to me ” you had taken your eyes of me unto the preacher, and I had to show you what he, the preacher was really like.. many look up to man and not God.. we all need to focus solely on Jesus again and always.. .and even to get back to praying and fasting now too

  6. Alex J Ruiz says:

    Thank the Lord! Todd Bently the sensationalist has been exposed! God is cleaning up the mess and revealing the deeds done in the dark..As Jesus said an evil generation seeks sighns. An evil generation seeks to be entertained rather then to be enter changed by the power of the Holy Spirit in Jesus name.. Many people hearts are entangled with cords of sin. Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the authour and finisher of our faith.. Jesus said my sheep hear my voice and a strangers they will not follow. Clearly many don’t know Jesus voice, for if they did they would have rejected Todd long ago…May those are are sincere cry out to God for delieverance and discernment!

  7. (Luke 12:57 KJV) Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

    Mark 14:21 For the Son of Man is going as it stands written concerning Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good (profitable and wholesome) for that man if he had never been born.

    Sadly too many martial relationships today follow a very predictable pattern:

    -The marriage partners push their spouse for total commitment

    -They try hard get mostly what they want

    -They next too often even lose interest in the sex

    -They next become attracted to someone else

    -They start cheating with the someone else

    -They become angry and resentful for the guilt they feel

    -They begin telling their original partner, spouse that they need time apart

    -They mostly blame their old partner, spouse for their behavior…and eventually, after making themselves and everyone around them miserable for an indefinite, but usually, a long period of time, they do end their relationships, marriages.

    Next even the new relationships and marriages will likely continue to follow this same pattern.

    Evangelist Todd Bentley, who led a Pentecostal revival in Lakeland from a modest beginning to near-historic proportions, has filed for separation from his wife, Bentley and his wife had been undergoing marriage counseling for a few years.

    Todd Bentley, the evangelist who has led the Florida Outpouring revival here in Lakeland since April 2, has filed for separation from his wife and might not return to the revival, according to his former local spokesperson, Lynne Breidenbach. She said Bentley made the announcement to his staff this afternoon. Bentley and his wife, Shonnah, have two daughters and a son and are Canadian citizens. Under Canadian law, separation is a first step in divorce proceedings and takes nine months. http://religion.theledger.com/default.asp?item=2248784

    “Undoubtedly the pressures and the burden of the Outpouring, which approaches 144 days on August 23rd, have helped to create an atmosphere of fatigue and stress that has exacerbated existing issues in their relationship,”

    THIS situation IS all “very sad” but insisted it “doesn’t invalidate what GOD HAD DONE, NOT WHAT Todd did” at the revival.God uses fallen, flawed people.

    (Psa 119:11 KJV) Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

    (1 Ki 8:46 KJV) If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,)

    (Eccl 7:20 KJV) For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

    (Ezek 3:21 KJV) Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

    (Rom 6:12 KJV) Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

    (1 John 1:9 KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    (1 John 1:10 KJV) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    Now Are we ALL to judge any of this ?

    Apostle Paul clearly had confirmed that we are to judge anyone within the Church, the body of Jesus Christ, only..

    (Luke 17:3 KJV) Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

    (Phil 2:15 KJV) That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

    (1 Tim 5:20 KJV) Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

    (2 Tim 4:2 KJV) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

    (Titus 1:13 KJV) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

    (Titus 2:15 KJV) These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

    (Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    (Luke 12:58 KJV) When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

    (1 Cor 5:12 KJV) For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

    (1 Cor 6:2 KJV) Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

    (1 Cor 6:3 KJV) Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

    (1 Cor 6:4 KJV) If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

    (1 Cor 6:5 KJV) I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

    (1 Cor 11:31 KJV) For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

    (Heb 10:30 KJV) For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

    (Rom 7:1 KJV) Know ye not, brethren how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?

    (Rom 7:2 KJV) For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

    (Heb 13:4 KJV) Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

    “The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to the husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body; but the husband does. Likewise, the husband does not have authority over his own body; but the wife does” (Corinthians 7:3-5).

    “Do not deprive one another except perhaps by agreement for a set time” (1 Cor 7:5).

    (Mal 2:14 KJV) Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. 15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. 16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

    TODD BENTLEY BE OBEDIENT TO GOD AND DO WHATEVER IT TAKES. GOD HATES DIVORCE , ADULTERY AND EVEN HYPOCRITES TOO. AND DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE IS NOT PERMISSIBLE FOR TWO PROFESSING CHRISTIANS WHILE BOTH OF THEM ARE ALIVE. SO “Todd Bentley” swallow your pride, your own lusts, goals, false desires but now also still be an EXAMPLE TO THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST, love His church, his work, but now also still love your own wife. AND WORK NOT ONLY TO BE A GOOD PREACHER BUT ALSO TO BE A GOOD HUSBAND, AND GOOD FATHER TO YOUR CHILDREN TOO .

    Dear fellow Christians
    One thing just came to my mind: During the last week, tropical storm “fay” is persistently sweeping over Florida and the Lakeland area (http://www.freshfire.ca/index.php?Id=1000&pid=8). I just looked up the word “fay” on OED and found some very intriguing hints at what God could be saying right now about the “Lakeland-Outpouring”:
    Faith – is it the right kind of faith?
    Fairy – witchcraft? white magic?
    Dross – no comment!
    To clean, cleanse, polish; to clear away (filth, etc.). Now only dial. in specific applications: To clean out (a ditch, pond); to pare away (surface soil); to clean (seed); to winnow (corn) – no comment!

    He who has ears should listen…
    Greetings from Switzerland!

  9. Dr. Mark says:

    NEWS FLASH FOR YOU THAT HAVE BEEN WONDERING WHERE TODD IS–HE’S STILL MINISTERING!

    TODD HAS NOT, I REPEAT, HAS NOT STEPPED DOWN FROM MINISTRY AS REPORTED (ANOTHER LIE?). HE IS NOW HOLDING ONE/TWO NIGHT MEETINGS ALL ACROSS AMERICA. HE IS COMING TO CALIFORNIA AGAIN IN THE NEXT WEEK.

    THIS IS NOT OVER, IT IS ONLY BEGINNING, AND THOSE THAT ARE SUPPOSE TO HAVE AUTHORITY OVER HIM IN THE LORD FOR HIS ACCOUNTABILITY AND HIS CARE ARE NOW BOTH FAILING HIM, HIS FAMILY, AND THE AMERICAN CHURCH. WHEN WILL THEY SET THIS GUY DOWN. I’LL TELL YOU WHEN–WHEN THE MONEY AND CROWDS START FALLING OFF.

    EVERYONE, WHO STOOD ON THAT STAGE AND COMMISSIONED A YOUNG NOVICE (TO HIS DETERMENT) SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES AND NOW THEY JUST SAY, WE DIDN’T KNOW. WHILE TODD CONTINUES TO MINISTRY AROUND THE NATION!

    SHAME ON ANY PASTOR THAT ALLOWS TODD INTO HIS PULPIT SO THEY CAN GET A BIG CROWD AND BIG BUCKS. INSTEAD THEY SHOULD BE SITTING HIM DOWN AND PUTTING ARMS OF LOVE AROUND HIM IN ORDER TO BRING HIM BACK TO A PLACE OF TRUE RESTORATION BEFORE HE EVER STEPS BEHIND ANOTHER PULPIT! ALL YOU’RE DOING IS KILLING THIS YOUNG MAN AND HIS MINISTRY! OH, YEAH AND LEAVING THE SHEEP BLEEDING ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AS HE’S OFF TO THE NEXT “PORTAL OPENING”…

    SO–FOR NOW IT’S STILL–”HAVE GIFT WILL TRAVEL” OH YEAH AND TAKE THOSE 30 MIN TO 1 HR. OFFERINGS.

    GRACE TO ALL, ESPECIALLY TO TODD AND HIS FAMILY!

  10. Laura K says:

    Wait, the prophets only have to be correct 65% of the time? How do we know which prophesies are in that 65% and which are not, therefore, being wrong? I suppose we are just supposed to follow along like sheep and accept everything they say and when they are wrong just say, “oh, well.” I believe God is awakening the church to be responsible and be sure those to whom we listen are from Him – in otherwords, use discernment and pray and ask Him, “Is this from you, Father?”

    Dr. Mark, I cannot believe that Todd Bentley is still preaching. Are you sure? Well, I shouldn’t be surprised the Joyners and the Whites are ministering during and after their divorces. Let’s not forget Jim Bakker (with a new wife) and Jimmy Swaggert are on TV again asking for money. We may be sheep which are considered dumb, but Jesus did say we would know His voice and not follow another. A message to the wolves – stop trying to kill the sheep, we are not a dumb as we look. If you are not truly called of God and leading a Godly life, don’t try to lead us – go get a day job like the rest of us instead of mooching off the saints. Many of us have learned a lesson from Lakeland and are on to you false prophets and apostles. We are going to pray and discern your anointing – if we discern that you are false you will have to go get a job because we aren’t going to give your our money and trust anymore.

  11. DR-Miami, FL says:

    Concerning Todd Bentley, he made a mature decision along with his staff members counsel to step down from his ministry.

    This was a mature decision and shows the man’s heart before the Lord.

    In terms of the prophecy over his life, true prophecy is accompanied by the witness of the Holy Spirit, and the words are truth, a light shining into darkness.

    The problem today is that the sheep do not know the Masters voice or their Shepherd voice, being Jesus.

    They do not know the presence of the Holy Spirit or the Witness of the Holy Spirit.

    When you know these mentioned, then you will not be led astray because you are able to discern Truth.

    The Lord is the one who equips a man and woman for a work, and it is HIS SPIRIT who does the work, and a man can only bring this work if
    He is anointed by God, and has a pure and obedient heart before the Lord.

    Any minister, regardless of the office can not produce any Work of God, unless it originates from God.

    I think of Katherine Kulhman who married out of Gods will in her life, and the anointing left her, and it was not until she obeyed the Lord, did the anointing return to her life.

    She obeyed the Lord and the anointing returned to her life.

    I mention Katherine Kulhman to reinforce the fact that a man or a woman does not and can not in themselves produce the anointing of God.

    Only God himself thru the Holy Spirit can bring this work.

    In reference to these many blogs, a man can make a decision that takes him over the line with the Lord, but this does not take away from the times prior and the ministry from their life.

    Also, it shows that each who carries the anointing must wake-up everyday, and continue to build and maintain the work of God, and this comes only thru obedience, not works. God desires obedience, faith comes from hearing and hearing the Word of God, and those who know what to do and do not do, to him is sin. Obedience is the response of faith, and as we all obey the Lord, we die to ourself, and become more like him, and as we are faithful over few things, then he makes one a ruler over many cities.

    History shows that one decision brings down Great Kings, and history shows that great men and women of God, have fallen with bad decisions.

    Daily, decisions of obedience is the key to growth.

    In closing, the Calling of God is irrevocable, so Todd Bentley the calling is irrevocable, and he needs prayer for his life and ministry, and needs time with the Lord to heal in his life and to be restored and this is my prayer for he and his wife, and their ministry.
