Do People Choose to Be Blind?

I’ve been staying away from Todd Bentley. He is a proven heretic and I see no need, much less a desire, to track his every move, every word. We all know him for what he is. What surprises me is the support and following he continues to build and maintain. Do his followers look at him? Do they listen to him? He is not easy to look at by his own design of FOOLERY of the tattoos and shaved head. He dresses like a vampire and don’t let that  silver cross shining out of the blackness of his shirt trick you into believing he is a man of God! His look is designed to make us think he is something other than what he is-someone saved out of a sinful life of bikers, booze and drugs. Ha!  He falls over his own words which are lies upon lies, and clearly, Todd does not have a gift for speaking, teaching or leading!

So I have to ask – Do people choose to be blind?

I found this little jewel over on DiscerningtheWorld.com which will quickly show how far this man Todd Bentley has fallen and those along with him. They do not see the truth, they see some form of power, of supernatural experience which is exactly the push Todd is getting at here. Todd’s own words in this short video clip will show you without a doubt how completely out of control and dangerous Morningstar has gone.  Rick Joyner claims Todd has been “restored”. We must ask, restored to what exactly because whatever has happened to this man is not biblical restoration! And if anyone thinks I am being mean to poor Todd then consider those he and Rick Joyner are misleading every day! What of them? Who will save them?

As we have watched we have witnessed a coming together of various false “ministries” who present another gospel and another jesus, and another “spirit” and these things are not new!  I believe along with that is coming, or has already come, a greater source of power and strength. As the video states, Satan masquerades as an angel of light. He is not a fool and not a wimp. There is some power to his punch. How else will could he fool so many?

Todd Bentley – Enough About Jesus:

A very interesting point of view from Ian over on his blog that bears repeating:

The times of the Gentiles has been fulfilled

By ian vincent

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Luke 21:24

Jerusalem was sacked and the Jews dispersed in the 1st Century, fulfilling Jesus words here. While the Jews were in exile the Gentiles did indeed control Jerusalem, again, fulfilling the Word of the LORD.

Crucially, Jesus is saying that the end of Gentile dominance over the city of Jerusalem (bcos the Jews return from exile and regain control) marks the final chapter or phase of history before Jesus returns to earth.

The sign: when the Gentiles lose control of Jerusalem then their time is up. They will never tread down Jerusalem again, their time is over. That time is now. We are facing the most tumultuous period the world will ever face, bcos the Gentiles still think THEY own Jerusalem and want it back. They don’t know that their time is up, the times of the Gentiles has been fulfilled.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Psalm 46:10

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

We need to be careful of who we put up on a pedestal, of who we listen to and follow, of who we believe holds the truth. This world is changing by the moment and many things are lining up. We don’t know how much time we have left before the return of the Lord. We don’t know with any certainly the condition our lives here on earth. So let’s take the time to be certain that our teachers are strictly biblical and that if we claim Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior that we follow the leading of His Spirit, the one and only Holy Spirit and not that of another. Let us be reminded of Luke 21:36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all things that will come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man. And let’s continue to pray for those caught up in the delusion that they may see the truth.

Bentley Ordained – HA!

Updated with new link-

This reminds me of the days when a person only needed to send in some cash to an address on the inside of a matchstick cover to become “ordained“.  This proves a similar process is still in operation. Well…isn’t this America, where a person can become anything they want to become? Guess it’s true.

Will anything stop Bentley and Joyner now?

The Hand of Todd Bentley


I was watching this video Extended Outpouring Meetings (January 8, 2010) at Todd Bentley’s website – Fresh Fire Ministries. I was taken in by the movement of his hands at the very beginning of the video, especially the first few second and for about 40 seconds. If you watch it, you will see that he is calling attention to his left hand but in a discreet manner. He moves it off the other, raises it slightly, looks at the camera, and looks down at his hand. Watch.  I started to wonder about this hand of his and these tattoos and remembered that some very intelligent person took pics of them during the Lakeland fiasco. So I went in search of Todd Bentley’s left hand. (These pics are all over the internet and I cannot tell who to credit them back to.) Here it is:

Quite floral for the back of a hand of a  man who likes to dress like a biker dude, don’t you think?  Strangely, a five pointed red flower is a symbol used in Rosicrucian. It has several variations other than this one.

Rosicrucian Symbol

Sections taken from Rosicrucian Order AMORC

The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis is the Latin form of the organization’s name, which literally translates into the Ancient Mystical Order of the Rosy Cross. There is no religious connotation associated with this symbol; the Rosy Cross symbol predates Christianity. The cross symbolically represents the human body and the rose represents the individual’s unfolding consciousness. Together, the rose and cross represent the experiences and challenges of a thoughtful life well lived.

Mysticism can be defined as an experience where one personally knows, through direct knowledge, the source of all being. Many call this source God; others, the cosmic.

The Rosicrucian path incorporates both metaphysics and mysticism. Metaphysics is that which falls beyond the five physical senses; for example, intuition, visualization, and healing techniques. Mysticism is simply the process by which you may eventually experience direct, conscious union with the Absolute, Divine Mind, Universal Intelligence, or what some Rosicrucian students call the God of their Hearts. This is not done by adhering to specific tenets or beliefs, but by learning and applying natural laws which, over time, allow you to
experience Divine or Cosmic Consciousness. The Rosicrucian Order does not attempt to define the nature of the deity. Rather, you will remain free to discover this through your own reflections. This same approach applies to everything that is presented through the Rosicrucian teachings.

Alchemy—the art of transmutation—came into prominence with the Alexandrian Greeks. It was then introduced to the Arabs, who then transmitted this art and forerunner of chemistry to Europe. The alchemists played a tremendous part in the early history of the Rosicrucian Order. While many alchemists were interested in making gold, some were more concerned with the transmutation of human character. European alchemists and Knights Templar, in contact with the Arab civilization at the time of the Crusades, brought much of this wisdom to the West. In Europe the transcendental alchemists—mystics and philosophers—sought to transmute the base elements of human character into the more noble virtues and to release the wisdom of the divine self within the individual.

So, where does this man who does not speak the word of God get his knowledge, wild visions and self proclaimed power to heal?  God does not give gifts to those who pervert the gospel and His word. If He did, He would be participating in the deception. Impossible!

If you look closely at Todd’s hand again you will see  an image of a cross and a crown. Oftentimes, this symbol is used in Christianity to bear the witness of a “cross lived life” rewarded with the crown after death. However, this symbol is used in other societies including Masonry, more specifically The Knights Templar and the Occult.  Remember, Rick Joyner, the man who took on “restoring” Todd is an admitted member of Knights of Malta. Simply, this is Freemasonry, with ancient Roman Catholicism at the roots.

At this point it is important that I point out that I cannot prove these things about Bentley. But, it is something to look at and consider as a possibility. It does not matter to me if he is a Rosicrucian or not. It does matter that he is speaking lies in the name of my Lord and Savior and many are being ruined. So, I am taking this opportunity to show what I have found. If you are a follower of Todd, you owe it to yourself, you owe it to your Lord to question, question, question this man and his claims.

Todd Bentley, the man who wants more than anything, is to impart this wisdom of the ancients into blind, unsuspecting followers. This man comes in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and leads the flock astray.  I listened to him tonight for a few moments as he twisted the words and meaning of Romans 1:11-12.   Todd didn’t read it out of the bible. He did not ask his followers to open theirs. He simply told him that the word used in that scripture “impart” was done through the laying on of hands. Oh?

(Don’t mess with me, man, I’ve been reading Romans!)

Romans 1:11-12 – For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established- 12 that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

Emphasis mine – It is being explained in verse 12 what was said in verse 11 -that impartation comes through their meeting together – encouraged together. There is no mention of the laying on of hands here. That is not being said, nor is it being implied. See how sneaky? Don’t pick up the bible or have others to look at it. Just tell them what it means – close enough to sound right – and look at the deception that will follow when they all go flying up to the front to be “imparted” with this hand!  The very hand bearing symbols against Christ.

1 Timothy 5:22 Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure.
