An Ode to Emma

Remember when Todd Bentley first introduced Emma to the world during the Lakeland Revival?  He caught a lot of grief for that, so he back pedalled and said, “There’s no female angel directing me!”  I’m not going to rehash all of that again, I just wanted to throw that out there to prep you for this video.

As I was looking through some old videos in my stockpile, I came across this gem.  I don’t think I ever posted it, so even though it’s three-years-old, I want to present it to you for your viewing pleasure.

It’s an ode to Emma, sang from Todd Bentley’s point of view!

      You’re forgiven. With me, at 60 years old, that would have been a senior moment. Or, as my airline pilot friend calls it, a cranial flameout. Everybody has a euphemism for those lapses. :)

    I only get half credit as I watched the video with the sound off…but that was enough,
    IF there WERE an angel named Emma, she would probably disavow knowing either Jones or Bentley.
    The audience was eating up his performance, though, weren’t they?
    For a while I’ve been puzzling over the idea that the ‘signs and wonders’ followers we see today may be similar to the crowds that followed Jesus not for Salvation, but just to see miracles.

    I remember watching the revival and he said, “Who’s Emma?” in regard to all the talk about her.

  11. Froggy says:

    Emma, oh Emma, where are ye?
    Sitting under the nut-cake tree,
    Waiting patiently for Todd Bentlee,
    To say, “Emma, oh Emma, come to me,”
    And conjure her up for the NAR to see.
    But Emma doesn’t exist, you see,
    Except in the mind of Todd Bentlee.

    It may be science finction, but this YouTube video clip from the BBC TV series “Doctor Who” gives a better picture of what Todd Bentley’s angel Emma-O is really all about:

      Kiwi–that was blood curdling!

      What is up with Todd Bentley and his Emma fixation? Why can’t he give up his crazy antics and just simply follow Gord’s word and have the peace which passes all understanding, instead of relying on mysticism, chicanery and theatrics?

      God bless all and have a wonderful Tanksgiving. K

    Chrystal-I listened, and you are right-I was afraid that Bentley was ‘rapping’, but that was actually fine.
    I wonder if anyone in the Pentecostal multiverse is seeing an angel named “Northanger Abbey”

    Friends:

    “Emma” isn’t the only “female angel” that Todd Bentley has endorsed. There is another, and her name is “Mary.” Check it out at http://www.christianresearchservice.com/ToddBentley8.htm

    Speaking of Todd Bentley and “Emma the angel,” be sure to read Bentley’s article, “Angelic Hosts” at http://www.etpv.org/2003/angho.html . But have some Pepto-Bismol ready to ease that queezy feeling in your stomach. Also, be sure to save the article to your hard-drive, or make a copy, because “Emma” may make it mysteriously disappear.

    Note that towards the end of the abovementioned article (about 3/4 of the way down), Todd Bentley enlightens everyone on what happens to people when “Emma” visits the party. He states that,

    “During this visitation the pastor’s wife (it was an AOG church) got totally whacked by the Holy Ghost- she began running around barking like a dog or squawking like a chicken as a powerful prophetic spirit came on her. Also, as this prophetic anointing came on her, she started getting phone numbers of complete strangers and calling them up on the telephone and prophesying over them. She would tell them that God gave her their telephone number and then would give them words of knowledge. Complete strangers. Then angels started showing up in the church.”

    I wonder if the phone numbers included private and non-published? How silly of me to ask, because Todd’s “god” can’t read people’s minds in the first place.

    Anyway, I shudder to think what would have happened if the pastor’s wife got “whacked” by a super-duper “anointing” and turned into a hungry T-Rex dinosaur. People would have been been hanging from the ceiling fans, jumping out of stained-glass windows, crawling over each other to get out, and screaming, “RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!”

    Complete chaos! Oh, the horror of it all.

    But, seriously, when “The Toddler” first mentioned “Emma” (or even showed up), people should have honored God and His written word, and raced each other to the nearest exit…super-quick-fast! Their doing so would have sent a clear message to Bentley and “Emma” and anything else ungodly that was barking, squawking, and floating around in the room.

    Anyone who truly knows and loves the Jesus of the Bible will not tolerate false teachers, nor the fabricated “angels” they carry around in their bag of tricks. If Bentley really saw a heavenly angel, it would scare him so bad that his tattoos would scream and run for cover!

    Finally, what should we expect in the future? How about the “Moon and Planet Anointing,” where leaders within the Prophetic movement have the gift of selling the moon and planets to their wealthy followers–specifically those who tried and failed to ascend to an astral plane through one of Bentley’s invisible portals to the stars.

    @ Kate – Exactly! As the scriptures clearly state about Todd Bentley and his angel “Emma”:

    “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” II Corinthians 11:13 & 14 KJV

    Of course, that’s exactly what Todd Bentley described the first time he encountered “Emma”. The scriptures also speak plainly about the “annointed cherub” that Todd Bentley calls “Emma”:

    “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. ” Ezekiel 28: 14 – 18 KJV
