The tents are coming down!
After today’s service, the tents in Lakeland are coming down, and the revival is moving back to Ignited Church where it originated. The revival was slated to end August 23rd, but with dwindling crowds, the hefty price tag may be too much for those in charge of the revival to continue, and it is shutting down early.
When the so-called revival first began, Bentley made the bold statement that God told him this revival would continue until the second coming of the Lord. Either God was mistaken, or Bentley was speaking presumptuously in the name of God. After being cornered by all the media attention and the discernment ministries who kept sounding the alarm, Bentley ran away, not able to suffer having his theology tested, or the glaring eye of the spotlight searching him for answers to his bold claims. In other words, he realized his antics weren’t taking place in a vacuum, and there was accountability for his actions. When the heat reached a boiling point, he bailed.
What does this mean for his enablers such as Patricia King, Bob Jones, Stacey Campbell, Che Ahn, Paul Cain, Rick Joyner, and others who prophesied over Todd in his commissioning? Stacey Campbell arrogantly stated that Todd was chosen by God to carry this revival forward because he asked for it in a way that no one else had. Campbell, with head in full swing, was supposedly speaking for God. Did God change His mind? No, Campbell wasn’t hearing from God…she was speaking out of the abundance of her own wickedness and uttering false prophesies.
I praise God that many, many, many in the blogosphere ran to the front lines and stood together in solidarity, sounding the alarm and warning others with the truth of God’s Word. While time is short, let us keep pressing on. As the Lord continues to delay, there will be others who speak presumptuously, and time will continue to grow darker as we approach the day of His appearing. Keep looking up.
