Patricia King Speaks Out on Todd Bentley

Patricia King says that when negative things are spoken against a person, it releases a negative force against them.  Patricia King believes that the reason Bentley “fell” and had to leave the Lakeland Revival is because of all the negative words spoken against him (by us).  She says that when we speak negative words, it releases “dynamics” in the spirit.  She says a devastating force can come upon you as a result.  This is the word according to Patricia King, it is not scriptural.  I suppose we are to blame for Bentley’s lies, false doctrine, and marital discord?  Bentley is not to blame?

The signs and wonders movement believe that words are a tangible force that can effect people in either a positive or negative way.  The words of your mouth, according to them, is a spiritual law that moves according to what you speak.  This isn’t scripturally sound, it’s witchcraft.

Special Note:  There are those of the signs and wonders crowd who have taken offense at this post.  I’m quite amused by that.  Patricia King has basically said that it is our fault Todd Bentley committed adultery, lied, deceived multitudes, and became a drunkard because we spoke negative words against him.  No, Todd Bentley committed all of the above acts because it was in his heart to do so.  Therefore, Patricia King’s notion that we are to blame for Todd’s fall is UNSCRIPTURAL!

    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

    I asked if anyone in the renewal movement leadership was listening. Apparently, some are, and they’re beginning to speak out! http://northwestmusings.wordpress.com/2008/08/17/the-dancing-continues-can-you-do-the-twist/

    Alan Hawkins, a Pastor in the renewal movement is speaking out. He Pastor’s a Church in Albuquerque, N.M. called New Life City. He made this comment on his blog today:

    “I for one hope we play this out just as publicly as we played out the endorsement of Todd Bentley. Our repentance should be as public as our proclamation of revival. Let’s go on God TV and tell the world about our failure, our weakness and our courage to face problems openly and without fear. Todd will find forgiveness from his Christian family. The overseers will find understanding from the body of Christ. And we should expect to find them all open and transparent. I will have more to say about this.”

    Thank you, Alan. Your forthrightness is refreshing.

  4. Chrystal says:

    Amen. Unfortunately, people like Patricia King aren’t taking that stance. She’s blaming the people in the church for Todd’s failures.

  5. Raf says:

    Hi there
    Thank you very much for creating this blog. I was very much entrenched in this ANTI-biblical movement for about a year. I am currently rebuilding my life. I am doing my best to not totally walk away from God. I have created a web site full of information and the more I think about the more I think I need to add a category about abuse to help others. I was raised in the occult so I have no idea why I did not see the occultic practices being used in this INSANE movement. Anyhow thank you very much for posting this. It is much appreciated. I hope and pray that people entrenched in this movement will soon be freed.
    Please feel free to drop by and visit my site http://www.yourinformationpro.net, I would love to see you there.

  6. 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

  7. Eli says:

    what is all this garbage from Patricia about “negative forces”? That is SO classic new age karma phsycobabble. It begs the observation that if what was happening in Lakeland was indeed from God, could He not protect his annointed from all that negativity??? Just more proof that this “move” is demonic. It never stops amazing me how gulible people are if they are not grounded in the Word of God.

  8. Ezza says:

    Hey,

    I guess what Patricia means is that we are made in the image of God,..God spoke things into existance. Job 22v28 “Thou shalt decree a thing, and it I shall come to thee”. Jesus spoke to the fig tree and it withered. Eph 5v1 Says be imitators of God. The book of James speaks of the power of the tongue. Words DO have power.

    Having said all of that with reference to what I feel Patricia King means, I’m not sure that alone can be attributed to this mans downfall.

    We are a fallen race desperately in need of the fear of the Lord! I fear for the church as a whole in this hour :-(

  9. Sylvia says:

    If negative speech from inside the body really has that kind of power, then the late Jerry Falwell should have fallen into all kinds of crazy sin! As many people as had “cursed” him, he would rightly have finished off his ministry dropping X in a strip club with his dancer boyfriend, Neil.

  10. Dave says:

    Can you guys who want to criticise Todd throw stones?
    What about Moses. He was a murderer so was King David. Samson did he ever have it together.
    I don’t know why God use People he knows are going to mess up and he knows they are going to.
    Maybe because there is not one righteous not one.
    The apostle Paul struggled with his carnal nature he talked about disciplining his body 1cor 9.
    Todd may not deserve it but maybe We could all pray God’s Kingdom come in there marriage right now. Lord pour you love out on them both.
    Come on guys we are family don’t divide the house love it.

  11. Ginger H says:

    I saw the entire message given by Patricia King. Patricia King admonished everyone to pray for Todd Bentley’s restoration in Christ. She clearly stated that what Todd was doing was wrong and that it is sin. She in no way said that anyone was to blame for Todd Bentley’s failures. We are called to love eachother, pray for eachother in difficulty and guard our own hearts in the fear of the Lord lest we stumble. I encourage all of your readers to go to xpmedia.com and watch the entire message given by Patricia King regarding this sad event.

  12. Chrystal says:

    I’ve heard it. Yes, she did condemn the sin and admonished everyone to pray for Todd Bentley. Then she proceeded to put the blame for his failure (whether she knew it or not) on those who spoke out against him. Just weigh what she was saying.

  13. Andy says:

    Dave,

    Moses, King David, Sampson, etc. were God’s chosen leaders, according to the bible.

    Todd Bentley is a false teacher, again according to the bible, hence there is a big difference.

    To say that Bentley is part of ‘God’s family’ is insulting and VERY unscriptural. The bible clearly labels Bentley as a false prophet and therefore we should too.

    Instead of praying for Todd’s marriage, or his ministry, or his reputation, we should be praying for his conversion, ’cause without that, nothing else matters.

  14. Tony Cathey says:

    I saw the video on her site and it was half hearted at best. She mainly was trying to cover her tracks and try to distance herself and act as if she wasn’t too involved in the ministry. Of course we can’t tolerate sin, but false prophets like her should be condemned also.

  15. I’m thankful for Lakeland, things that were hidden came in the light. Bob Jones is the person who deceived Todd Bentley, Patricia King, etc. through his occult experiences. That all these famous apostels and prophets don’t see that Lakeland was the spirit of deception from God (2.Thessal. 2,11), shows how blind they are. Thank God, He is preparing His Prophets,people who will shake the church and the world.

  16. Elin Ryosa says:

    Words do contain a power that we today seem to be forgetful about. The whole Bible is based upon God’s Word and the universe was created through His Word. We are created in his image as the only creatures on our planet that has the power of the spoken word.

    “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21

    “but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
    With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.” James 3:8-10

    Todd confess Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour and is thus our brother despite differences you may have in details of the doctrine. I want to bless him and pray for his marriage to, if possible, be restored. I want to thank God for what he has done through Todd and pray that the necessary steps be taken for his restoration and that he will grow to be a powerful servant for our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Kind Regards,
    Elin Ryosa, Sweden

  17. Rebecca says:

    After going through 48 hours of rage over this I finally calmed down and realized that the person who should be the most enraged by this is probably Todd Bentley.

    This poor guy, who is still a child, has been spoon fed angelic visitation, third heaven visualization and ‘the anointing smells like vanilla’ crap for that last, what, 10 years? Of course he fell into heresy and sin. This is classic ‘need for approval’ and the people we should deal with are the Bob Jones’, Patricia King’s and all the other so called “apostolic leaders” who perpetrate this kind of dren. They don’t even know what apostle means. To them it’s some excuse to manipulate people’s lives by ordering them around.

    For the last 10 years the current leadership in the church has had this rallying cry of “the next generation!” and now alot of these kids feel the pressure to perform. They have no understanding of the spirits they are dealing with. And these baby boomers, who have run their course with their revival from the 70’s, are hell bent on making their children into supernatural “Joel’s Army” need to be held accountable. They’re drawing a big target on these kids backs for the enemy to aim at.

    I am so sorry, Todd, that these people got to you and turned your mind into mush. If I were you, I would get as far away from the “charismatic church” as I could. I did, and it’s one of the best things that ever happened to me.

  18. Mark says:

    As I see it the “Charismatic Church” is not the real problem here. The problem is that we in Western Culture are searching for ways to get high and be entertained. The early church had many “Charismatic” gifts and they did just fine and in fact grow very quickly and powerfully by freely using these gifts. The problem is that most people want to get high on anything and religion can be a great high especially when you open yourself to the demonic forces and let them get you high.

    During Jesus’ day there were people going around using his name to cast out demons, healing people and all sorts of things that appeared to be from God. Jesus said to his apostles that he DID NOT KNOW THEM. Meaning they were not from him. Remember Satan is a fallen angel. SO!! If an angel appears to you you should question where he comes from. This questioning is called discernment. To indulge without serious refection is dangerous. What direction did we get from Jesus on discernment? Don’t just listen to the words from the mouth they can be deceptive…LOOK AT THE FRUITS. Jesus was even tempted by Satan in the desert. Last thing to consider here…the Church is a great resource for discernment and prayer is the most powerful resource BUT you have to ASK God to help you discern and listen to His Church. He did found the Church and he guides it. It is His Church, not Satan’s, and the Church has power over Satan and all his little angels.

    Let me be perfectly honest…I’m not an expert on Lakeland. I haven’t even been to the revival but from what I observed from afar is that the Lakeland Revival had very few fruits that honored God and built up the kingdom of God. Jesus was NOT the center of the experience the angels were. Don’t take my word for it watch the Youtube clips. For every one time Jesus or Christ is mentioned the angels or God are mentioned 50 times. I think the God they are referring to here is not the God of Moses, or Abraham, or David or so on. The God they were paying homage to might have been the legend of fallen angels (Satan and his little angels) that tempted even Christ by presenting himself as God. “You will know them by the fruits that they bare” was the direction from Christ. The fruits that I saw at Lakeland were a bunch of people getting high on the experience and lots and lots of MONEY! Jesus was not about MONEY. And every time MONEY becomes a big part of a ministry you need to start praying for guidance and looking for the good fruits like repentance, true worship of the true God, and serious service to others. Another big red flag is when the movement starts to separate the Body of Christ. This is not natural and should be challenged directly.

    Just my humble option!

    My prayers are with Todd Bentley because Todd was created by God and God doesn’t make junk. I pray that God uses Todd and raises him above this and uses him to bring glory to the True and Living God. And if there is a demonic spirit at work here (and I refrain from judgment) I pray that it be removed immediately in the name of Jesus Christ and be sent directly to the foot of the cross for Christ to deal with as he sees fit but never to return to the face of the earth to interfere with His Church or people again.

    ALL GLORY TO GOD in and through his son CHRIST JESUS!!

  19. Chrystal says:

    Just one thought…

    When the disciples witnessed others casting out demons in Jesus’ name, Jesus did not say He didn’t know them…He said for them to leave them alone because he who was not against Him was for Him.

  20. JANIA says:

    Utube is filled with bits and pcs of Lakeland revival spliced together to make what was not true look like it is true..I have been to Lakeland and watched 4 mo. of the programs and Todd never said anything contrary to christian beliefs. And angels were never always the high topic. Jesus was “always magnified.” and one evening Todd made sure that the Utubers would see how often Jesus was magnified, instead the liars tore apart things he would say and do to make it what they wanted it to appear to be. obnoxious, and unscriptural.. and in my opinion a true work of the devils themselves. Ihave often longed to be back at Lakeland to be in the presence of God that was so magnified that you couldnt contain the joy. also I might add that any christian who doenst know that words have power does not know the word of God.!! Satan does and has done all he could to kill this revival and used the people of God to do it. How sickening is that ? I am reading a book by Frances Hunter that was written in the 80s .. everything about the 3rd heaven and other spiritual encounters with God is as genuine as could be.I have other older books on deliverance that attests to the same information. .In the last days as God moves forward to thwart Satans conquests against His people He states that He would be doing a new thing.. And I believe that the new thing is the tangible supernatural move upon the earth to bring in the harvest.. Normal ways isnt working. we are too busy to care about the harvest .. so God with or without your co operation will raise up the Daniels and women like Patricia King to pour upon out of His Spirit signs miracles and wonders to bring the harvest !to completion..

  21. Chrystal says:

    God revealed Himself through His Son, and left His open message to us in His holy Word.

    Instead of reading apostates like Frances Hunter, please dig deep in His Word and be nourished.

    As for Todd and Lakeland, why are you trying to hold onto something that God has torn apart?

  22. JANIA says:

    Crystal, you have obviously been taken in by the religious devils of our day ..And quite obviously you never experienced the Lakeland revival.. I would guess that 85 % of the commenters on this board never watched it either and if they did it they probably turned it off . Worship lasted about 3 hours a night on God TV then Todd or another speaker would minister healing and teaching fromt the Word of God for about 2 hours.. worship was very important to Todd .. some nights he wouldnt even speak he was so overcome by the beautiful worship.. and so was I.. try listening to Roy Fields ” live from Lakeland” one particular song “Holy Holy Holy ” lasts about 30 minutes and even then you dont want it to stop it is so heavenly.. 10,000 attenders a night could not be wrong.. no way on earth could we be coming from all over the earth in such great numbers and be deceived.. and what were we deceived about may I ask? What false doctrine was taught ? oh I know.. drug addicts were set free.. sinners came to repentance every night… people were healed and set free.. the love of our brothers and sisters shared in unity and separately.. I would know them even when I didnt know them. Oh and the joy wow ! I guess that was evil every night teams of ministers were there to comfort , pray over people and share the love of Jesus.. and every morning hundreds would gather to street witness and see people healed in Lakeland.. Wow were they ever deceived by bad doctrine.. Incidently getting back to Todd…Todd had such common sence knowlege of the Word that it was astounding at times.. I became a chrisitan over 24 yrs ago. In an assembly of God church.. everything I heard from Todd I already heard before.. and I was always on fire for the Lord.like Todd was.. by the way ( dont freak out now) but I had an angelic visitation in 1986 that pointed me to the scripture.. I experienced miracles signs and wonders myself in the early 80s thru the 90s. I fell into sin and the Lord removed these wonderful gifts for a season.. but now He is bringing them back and I am part of the new season of Gods mercy in bringing revival in all forms that started in Lakeland and is now fallling all over the earth. Todd always encouraged us to pray and move in faith for the sick daily and for the last few weeks I have had a prayer walk around my neighborhood praying for families and met 2 ministers who needed impartation from me and got it and an old woman in a wheel chair that I have befriended and am praying for..she will get her healing mark my words!!!!!!!!Lakelands revival has changed me for life.. I am more aware of God, of sin and the unsaved.. I havent been able to watch secular tv anymore since Lakeland in June and have such a passion and excitement for the tangible presence of God that the old way is boring to me.. God should have never been boring but when He comes in to those who unlock that old door of fear His manifestation brings power and influence into every area of our lives. I have never been the same since and many people have noticed my excitement for the Lord… All those like you who are still stuck in”religion” will miss out on Gods new appt. for this earth for He is coming SOON. No more prearranged church programs, and set styled worship.. its all about the HOLY SPIRIT , His fresh fire , and an willilngness to let God be God and not a boxed and comfortable commodity..
    by the way since Lakeland,, my prayer language has increasesd and my joy has not left since I was there in June.. God didnt stop the revival.. you did and every religious fearful devil stopped it.. and Satan is laughing!!!!!
    But i got a feelin the Lords not done yet .. another wave is coming …. get ready for the fresh wind of revival to blow accross this earth once again…satan wont be laughing long..
    Praising Jesus in this NEW HOUR in a new way whcih is really the old way….
    Jania

  23. Chrystal says:

    Todd Bentley didn’t preach the Word of God… he didn’t preach anything but fire, fire, fire….. signs, signs, signs, and wonders, wonders, wonders.

    Your argument is that 10,000 people can’t be wrong? Yes, 10,000 people can be and were wrong. Over 1,000 people followed Jim Jones’ madness and drunk cyanide laced kool-aid. Millions believed Hitler’s demonic-filled rants and slaughtered millions of people in the holocaust. Yes, people can be and are wrong. But God and His Word are never wrong.

    As for your angelic visitations….rebuke them. I’ve said so many times that God has already revealed Himself through His Son, Jesus. There is no other revelation outside of Him. All of this was left for us in His Word, by which we feast on truth and grow.

    As for calling us religious devils, you are way out of line, and should you post another comment here in the same tone you posted this one, it will not be approved. The only reason I approved this one was to show you as an example of the spiritual deception that is in the church today.

    Your post is contradictory. You say it was not God who stopped the Lakeland revival, it was us “religious devils.” I ask you, if it was truly of God, could we have stopped it? No way. Lakeland was a stench in the nostrils of God, and it was brought down. I, for one, rejoiced to see it so.

    Cast aside all mysticism and study God’s Word. Your spiritual health depends on it.

  24. JANIA says:

    Crystal once again your proving that like all of the other deceiving Utubers that split and twisted Todds words and actions that you never really watched the revivals… Todd explained many times that he is a revivalist ..his call was not to teach and preach on a reg. basis but to instill an attitude of worship , trust, repentance and expectancy for the Lord to move in tangible ways which he did..His is a healing ministry not a pastors role. As he has mentioned many times that is what reg. church attendance is for.. His ministry to the body ( not unbelievers , tho many were saved as a result ) is to prepare Gods people to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and do as Jesus did.. cleanse the lepers, heal the sick , raise the dead, deliver the oppressed of demons.etc . A revival is meant to wake us up, to make alive in us what for many has been lying dormant and faithless for way too long.. The scripture is not talking about false religions when it states that “having the form of godliness but denying the power of it” I believe it is pointing to those who call themselves christians. You are critizing those that follow that mandate as was Todd and everyone there who dared to believe God. When was the last time that your church prayed in true faith for the dead to rise , for demons to leave a possesed person , for instant healling???? probably never from the sound of your comments.. if real faith was involved you would understand all that happened in Lakeland.. God TV with Rory and Wendy fasted and prayed for many days before venturing to broadcast the revival and God gave a sure word that this was to be.. A prophetic word was shortly after delivered stating the attacks of satan upon this revival and that most of the attacks would come from christians themselves who in their religiosity would deny this move of God.. God can begin a move but it is up to us to pray it thru for in these last days satan is working like a mad man to disunify the body using discord and hatred for our own brothers and sisters. How sickening is that to see the body of Christ accusing instead of praying , accusing.. and who is the “great accuser ” of the bretheren ? Thats right , Satan himself.. see the picture now?? As for this information that you seeminly lack, Todd preached many many times on faith , on the kingdom of God , and many other relevant topics regarding Gods moves in the earth,regarding His heart in the matter of supernatural healing and our response to obedience. His understanding of the scriptures is awsome . He is very gifted in the area of healing and revival as this is his calling and understands the scriptures very well. You say that everything we know and should know has been revealed.. however what you obviously dont know is that the scriptures tell us that Jesus did so many more things that it would take volumes and volumes to record them.. Yet Jesus stated to those with hiim and for us to hear that “these things that I do you shall do and even “greater” things than these will you also do..” indicating that there is much more that was not recorded for us..Everything that happened in Lakeland was a symphany of unity , joy , love, healing, deliverance, hope and salvation,,worship of our beautiful Jesus lasted no less than 3 hrs a night with brothers and sisters lying prostate on the floor before our God… No way in HELL would satan provide this kind of atmosphere.. Instead he was “furious”… we were warned regularly of the demonic screeching coming from those that were sadly, uniformed believers. because the “box ” was broken and God was moving His Way over all who allowed the freedom of His Holy Spirit to move…
    I think about how ironic it is that everyone who experienced Lakeland stands by it as I do.. i remember when ABC did that horribley skewed version of Lakeland on Night line in Aug? I was sick to my stomach.. I didnt even recognize the revival the way that ABC broadcasted it.. I went on to read the comments and out of 650 comments i could only find about 30 that agreed with ABC and it was more than obvious these commentators never even saw the programs or were just voicing other peoples negativity..but for every single person that went to Lakeland the comments were just as upset as I was to the lies and misinformation that ABC gave. I have copies of them and if you would like to see what the majority wrote I will be happy to scan them to you.. So dear faithless one , open , open I say your heart to the Holy Spirit for fear and legalism has stunted the growth Gods people.and caused them to be generally ineffective. by the way.. I have several of the dates Todd taught from scripture .. I will look for them and give them to you.. I think you could g0 to God TV archives and listen to the program that day and judge for yourself..
    As for my angelic visitation it was the defining moment of a breakthru that God gave that had oppressed me for 2 yrs. I was set free and remained free since. The bible informs us that angels are ever around us and sometimes in tangible form and that we could possibly”entertain angels unaware” surely you must know that scripture.. Angels have often been sent to announce a great move of God.. These are the endest of days . surely you dont believe that its going to “.business as usual” with God do you? NO absolutely not..God is looking for a people of faith who will move out toward the miraculous and allow Him to manifest Himself to them .In doing so its only by His miraculous power that we could pull back the darkness over this world enough to demonstrate His Powers to a world shrouded in unbelief ( christians alike) to bring in the last harvest of souls..
    Signs miracles and wonders are not new to me.. in and around 1980 as anew christian I took God by his Word and layed hands on my cancer stricken 7 yr old kitty.. In 3 days she was totally and completely healed and lived for 23 yrs.
    I have many other stories to tell,, everyone tells me I should write a book and perhaps if there is enough time yet by Gods grace I will.. we should not be afraid of the supernatural for after all what is God himself but supernatural.. He can break thru into our natural lives at any moment if we dare to believe..Jesus said ” When I come again will I find faith in the earth?” Much to think about my friend.

    Everyone and their grandfather wants to write books about their “experiences,” yet the only book that brings life is neglected. No thank you. I will read God’s Word, and not books based upon people’s experiences.

    And yes, I did watch the revival on GodTV, although it was hard with the dreadful two-hour music, and the unbiblical rants of Todd Bentley.

    Hi My name is Richard.. its hard to hear such bad mouthing ’bout a brother in the Lord who’s only passion was to see God move in miraculous ways over the lives of so many spiritually hungry believers. I experienced the time of my life in Lakeland Florida with 2 of our other friends. We will never forget the experience. We got to bring some back with us.. and are hoping, looking , and praying for the next Move of God!!

    Re Todd Bentley Quote[1]“[a]his teachings clearly fall outside Orthodox Christian Doctrine”.Where does that the New Testament teach it’s commonplace for believers to visit Heaven before their Death,[b]why did he address[or still does?] the Holy Spirit as “Bam”,[2]Bentley was commissioned into ministry by Patricia King whose teachings are blatantly New Age and she refers to herself as a “New Mystic.” Her most recent dalliance into neo-paganism is the promotion of “Ekstasis,” a form of trance dancing!!.[3]Bentley calls aberrant Kansas City prophet, Bob Jones his spiritual father,who had young women disrobe to receive their prophecy before the Lord,Jones also believes he can go to the third heaven at will, practices astral- projection, and believes that the anointing of God resides in the Kidneys!!.Quote from April 11th telecast of the Lakeland revival “Bob Jones told me the anointing works in the kidneys .If you wanna see someone preserve an anointing, pray for their kidneys. People are praying from my kidneys, and I get full – it’s instant.[4]
    Not only does Todd Bentley want us to develop our “Third Eye” and teaches that we can learn to enter the Third Heaven at will. “As you ponder this question, let ME!![Bentley]lay a foundation by teaching about the difference between all the levels of revelation. Now I’ve been to the third heaven[REALLY??], which is the highest level. Whether or not I was in my body, I don’t know and spoken to many men and women who have been there. Some people call this place the throne zone. When you hit that level, it’s very obvious.”LIVING UNDER AN OPEN HEAVEN, Sept 19, 2003 UNQUOTE.
    It is sad that his marriage has failed but his “theology” does not conform to basic Scriptural teaching NOR do his practices[including the tattoos!!!].The point has been labored time and time again ,if we have a proper “working knowledge” of basic ,fundamental truths of the Bible and have the courage to question as did the Bereans who “searched the Scripture” these aberrant teachings will not flourish!!!

    I Believe that we should draw near to the foot of god alone in solitude to sit, listen, reflect, and seek wisdom and guidance for our corporate body and our individual lives. We are accountable for ourselves and our circles of influence. Our god is bigger then you, then I, then Todd or any satanic, new age, or culty force. Look to the hills
    to where our help and the bodies help really comes from. Lets take the time to choose the wisdom from the father before getting worked up and jumping to kill our own brothers. We need to stop playing ninny nanny to shift blame finding someone else to
    beauty of the cross, the prodigal son, is that Jesus is our bridge our source our life. Not Todd or how many miss-haps or mistakes or things we do wrong. We all fall short of the glory of god. We need to stop looking around doing the comparison game. guard your hearts. Press on toward what is good, what is pure, what is just, and think of these things and be thankful for how great our god is and that he is mighty to save.
