It’s time to hold false prophets accountable for their wickedness. We cannot let them off lightly, or move on once it is “old news.” We need to stand firm and expose them.
Here is a partial transcript of the prophecy given by Stacey Campbell on the night of Todd Bentley’s commissioning:
“When they were singing that song tonight, the spirit came on me and said, ‘Todd, because you asked like very few men on the face of the earth ask to see my glory, I will begin a revival through you that will pass beyond gifts into the very heart that moves God to release gifts to His children. And Jesus, filled with compassion healed the sick; and Jesus, filled with forgiveness, said ‘he who is without sin cast the first stone;’ and Jesus, filled with justice and truth, threw over tables and took out whips and cleansed the temple of God. And Todd, I have chosen you because of your background, because of your background, because of your background, to release my nature when you release my gifts. To become a living epistle like the Word that became flesh, and people saw the glory of God; and I will use you to father a movement that operates in such revival power, but it is coming out of the very nature and heart of God. And you will teach people how to behold God until they are transformed from glory to glory, from compassion to mercy to lovingkindness to truth, to justice, to forgiveness; and a whole generation will move in such signs and wonders and power, but everyone will give glory to God.’ And I feel like Todd that when you were twelve-years-old, and I just graduated from Baptist seminary, the Holy Spirit fell on me and He started to speak to me over and over and over again about a generation that would come on the earth that would do signs and wonders that would change society, and society would not change them. And you are a firstfruit of that generation of nation changers that will release the glory of God in all its fullness in Jesus name.”
As I said above, this prophecy was given by Stacey Campbell at Todd Bentley’s commissioning service. This is before the Nightline feature was aired, and this was before Lakeland insiders went public with lies and abuses by Bentley during the Lakeland services. Also take note that this prophecy was given before Bentley separated from his wife, and Fresh Fire Ministries released a public statement that Bentley had become emotionally involved with a female member of his staff.
Since Campbell emphatically states that this is God speaking through her, we can draw either one of two conclusions from the above prophecy. Either God couldn’t foresee the fiasco that the Lakeland Revival would turn into, and by the same token, the literal sinful mess that Bentley’s personal life had become, or God wasn’t speaking through her at all. After considering recent events, I maintain it is because God was not speaking through her at all.
Campbell has many followers who believe she is a true prophet of God. I urge her followers to weigh this prophecy with God’s Word, and in light of current events, and reject her. Hold her responsible for her false prophecies and turn away from her. God’s Word does not teach that you have to be 65% correct when giving prophecy (as Rick Joyner and others have said), it teaches that prophecy must be 100% accurate or it is not from God!
Certainly, I believe in my heart that some will have their eyes opened by this and will turn away from it, but many, many of them will not. God’s Word says in Jeremiah 5:31:
The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule on their own authority; And My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?
