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 Public Rebuke of a Modern Day Heretic (with applause)

I’m aware most everyone has seen the video involving the public rebuke of Todd Bentley. So, I’m not putting this up as a “look what I’ve found”, but rather to support and agree with the actions of these men and women taken against Todd.  (Yes, the wives and even children of the rebukers were present that night!) I do this in the continued effort of so many to warn others against the continued heresy of Todd Bentley, supported and endorsed by Rick Joyner, Mike Bickle and Bill Johnson.

It is sad and shocking at the same time to see Todd’s reaction. Did we truly expect he would repent? The actions of the people in his meeting scare me and remind me of those in the crowd who cried out for the release of the murderer Barabbas in return for the crucifixion of God in human form sent as our Savior who was without sin – Jesus Christ. Yes, it was the plan of God that Jesus suffer death, but at the same time, don’t the cries of the crowd reveal the true heart of mankind?  While Todd is not a murderer per se, lies kill truth. His false teaching and stories of bizarre supernatural experiences murders the true faith of Christianity.  He is a liar and a heretic. I have no problem speaking that out as truth. If you are a follower of this man, please pay attention to the warnings going out against him. We don’t do this for fun. It is far from it.

God help us.

Mark 15:6-15

6 Now at the feast he was accustomed to releasing one prisoner to them, whomever they requested. 7 And there was one named Barabbas, who was chained with his fellow rebels; they had committed murder in the rebellion. 8 Then the multitude, crying aloud,[a] began to ask him to do just as he had always done for them. 9 But Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” 10 For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather release Barabbas to them. 12 Pilate answered and said to them again, “What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?”
13 So they cried out again, “Crucify Him!”
14 Then Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?”
But they cried out all the more, “Crucify Him!”
15 So Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered Jesus, after he had scourged Him, to be crucified.

False Healing Impartation

Matthew 10:7-8  As you go, preach, saying “The kingdom of Heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”

This is the stuff I came out of – (false) HEALING –

Randy Clark was one of the speakers (along with Bill Johnson) at the one and only IAHR (International Assoc of Healing Rooms -Cal Pierce/John G. Lake) conference I attended a few years ago in Spokane. He also was very influential in the spiritual life of the Healing Rooms Director I worked with.  I have a video of Randy and Todd at Lakeland on my blog doing that impartation thing –electrocution style. Impartation is a very big thing in charismania. I’m sure it’s were I picked up the demons. Bad stuff.

Watch it here to see if you really want to be a part of the teaching and impartation offered by Randy and his cohorts- and hear them discuss the connection between Todd Bentley, Randy Clark and the Toronto Blessing – Lakeland Electrocution Impartation

A man cannot impart spiritual gifts, power, anointing, knowledge or wisdom into another. Those things are given through God alone. The Holy Spirit IS God, so how can a man who teaches improper things and false doctrine impart Him to you? It cannot be done. Let me warn you. Watching and listening to false teaching in agreement  is enough to invite demons into your life. If you open your mind to the thought that “maybe they are right, maybe they know more than I” you have opened a door for deception. The devil will be very happy to lead you further astray.This is what happened to me.

Link to Randy Clark’s ministry – Global Awakening (There’s that word again – AWAKENING) Does this sound like it has anything to do with Christ or the gospel?

Again, in these teachings and ministries they completely deny the work of the Holy Spirit in believing THEY are the carriers of His presence.  THEY have the answer to why people don’t heal when they are prayed for. Forget the sovereignty of God. Word of Faith has the answer everyone is looking for. They spin off of Ken Hagin’s stuff.  It’s witchcraft repackaged!

It is God who heals. We pray, He moves. Not everyone gets healed and we do not know why. It is not our place to know. It is not even our place to ask or to question God.  I don’t care how many times they spit out the word intimacy, there are some things we are not to know. Isaiah 55:8 For My thoughts are not  your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. Those who do not walk in the Spirit led lifestyle will go after other knowledge and claim to know things the rest of us do not. Whatever they are selling, even if they offer it for free – you do not want it.

Acts 8:18-24 Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. 18 and when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money, 19 saying, “Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” 20 But Peter said to him, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money! 21 You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God. 22 Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. 23 For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity.” 24 Then Simon answered and said, “Pray to the Lord for me, that none of the things which you have spoken may come upon me.”

Simon was a new believer as noted in verse 13, having had been a sorcerer. Being so new to the faith it is easy to be mistaken. Peter pointed his sin out to him in without haste and Simon repented. These gnostic laden teachers are not new believers and are therefore without excuse.

After all, where we we when God hung the stars into place and set the planets into orbit? Can we tell God how that is done? No. We cannot. (Those who think otherwise should read the last few chapters of Job.) Where we we when God formed Adam out of the dust of the ground creating intricate parts of the body that miraculously work together? We cannot tell Him how creation of man is done. We cannot tell Him how to heal a person. And we cannot tell another how to heal a person. Healing comes only from the power of God Himself through His choice to heal or to not heal. It will never come through a man made method or decree or proclamation, nor by study course or impartation!

It certainly does not come from healing energy, (see their message below) which sounds very much like Reiki, a Japanese technique for reducing stress and promoting healing through the laying on of hands. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.Read more here – What is Reiki

Be careful, be wise and ask the Lord to give us all greater discernment in these times.

Danger Looming – The Blog of Todd Bentley

Todd Bentley has done so much damage to the Word of God and all that is Christianity that I want to offer the same to him – rip and tear – here’s my take on his blog-

Out of fairness to blogging rules, here is the link, as much as I hate to post the demonic thing on my blog, but rules are rules. Ho hum.

http://www.freshfireusa.com/blog/

From Aug 17

As many of you know, I have been busy training hard in the gym and want to be in the best shape of my life in the next season of Revival.

The next season of revival. Here it comes. If at first you do not succeed, lie, lie again. Someone call Bob Jones and get a ruling on this to find out if the next season will be called the 4th Wave.

I have been very consistent and determined in losing weight and gaining healthy muscle mass.

The better to kick you with, my dear…

This reminds me of prisoners who have nothing else to do but pump iron all day long to better attack the guards when the rioting comes.

Instead of running to a fast food restaurant, I now run on a treadmill and instead of sneaking veggies to the dogs, I am now eating them! Lol!

…eating the dogs would not surprise me coming from a man who kicks those who are about to die and worshiping grandmothers in the face…

My trip to Kansas City was very refreshing. We attended World Revival Church for 3 days and it was truly encouraging and witnessed a real hunger, fire, and high praise and many testimonies of lives changed. I have felt a true spirit of Revival.

There’s that word again – revival.

We ended our time at IHOP by soaking to Misty Edwards live. There is a true mature and tangible presence of Holy Spirit.

What does that mean exactly? A true mature presence of the holy spirit. I didn’t realize the spirit of the living God had to mature, so he must mean the presence of the other spirit he calls God.

I think that Kansas City BBQ is the best in the world! Haha!

Hmmm..in case your personal trainer forgot to tell you before your big summer vacation, bbq is off the menu for those in training, Todd.

Am I picking on Todd and his blog? Yes. I’m trying to find a way to get through the “copyright” infringement without breaking the law. But honestly, I don’t see how a man who dissects and twists the Word of God the way Todd Bentley does can be protected by copyright. The whole concept does not sit well with me. I don’t see how he can be protected by anything under the law. But, as he twisted his way into America I guess he can use the laws of my country to gain his advantage

…to better manipulate you, my dear.

But, that’s why I am here. Let’s go back in his blog a little and I will show you somethin’.

From 5/23

The purpose of my blog is to share with you my personal thoughts, feelings, status, revelations, and updates on the ministry and restoration. Take the time to stay updated on the restoration process with Rick Joyner as the videos are featured here on the website.  Many of you have been faithful friends and loyal partners both in prayers and finances over the years. Please continue to stand with us.

Continue to stand – meaning keep sending your money…

At this time you may be asking, “What is Todd Bentley doing?” My main focus is rest and intimacy with Jesus. I have much time for prayer and meditation, enjoying reading many books, and studying the Word. Oh and don’t worry! I am having lots of fun too! There is a theme park five minutes from my house.

This is what your “contributions to his ministry” or as he called it “your stand” is doing for Todd.  You work, he plays. After all, the theme park is only 5 minutes away! Consider, your jobs, your family time, what it takes to get by day to day, all of your responsibilities. How much time do you have to do the things Todd does?

Um, if Todd had really spent all the time with God he claimed to during Lakeland, as he is again claiming here, he would not have been so inclined to fool around with someone he was not married to!  But, the divorce situation, bad as it may be, is only a smoke screen to get our attention off the fact this man, and those who endorse and promote him are steeped in false doctrine!

This is a key to false teachers, evangelists and prophets. They are all about telling us, the little people, how much time they spend with the Lord; how intimate they are with the Lord, and out of intimacy comes – yes – those coveted dreams and visions and trips to the throne room or the third heaven, that are oh, so important to our understanding as little people!! For God has sent them on this special mission to impart these revelations to us, the little people who have no focus, no passion, and no revelation! They say to “Do what I do and you will see what I see”, and…(watch yourself be seduced away to an intimate relationship with a demon!)

From 5/27

God has been speaking to me about mercy. We need it!

The last 10 months has been one of the most difficult trials for me. I have been overwhelmed at how much Jesus loves us. Even when we blow it. God’s reassuring love and grace meets me again and again. Honestly, through this season of restoration, I have feared that the judgment of God and embraced His discipline. I remember days where Ive questioned if God would qualify me again as a leader because of His holiness, His righteousness, and justice. To be frank, I came quite short of the character required of a leader.

Recently in Prayer God Spoke to me out of Isaiah 30:18 NKJ

“Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
And therefore he will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed are those who wait for Him.”

Sometimes when we expect judgment, God manifests His justice in goodness and mercy.  As it implies in the verse above, God’s justice and mercy are exalted in the Lord being gracious to you. The Bible goes on to promise in the same chapter, in the 20th verse, that though the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, God will restore you to His favor again.

Isn’t that sweet?  A God of goodness and mercy…with no consequences for sin!  And here is a nice scripture to prove what he claims is right on. Finally achieved – a true god of our own understanding.

Please understand that Todd is not repentant. And that is key for us to receive God’s mercy and grace.  Just because Todd seems to have gotten away with so many things, does not mean he has escaped judgment – not at all.  Just because Rick Joyner and Bill Johnson have made Todd their pet joint project for “restoration” does not mean Todd has been called of God into ministry. He has not.

And notice how he included his readers  – “when we expect judgment” – so that you will identify with the fact that you are fallen just as he is, and who are you to pass judgment?? Don’t be fooled by this!  Let me take this one step further. This is a trick by Bill Johnson who was all about “Grace, Grace!!” when Todd was found out!  I guess you could say that Johnson literally played the devil’s advocate! These are one sided messages having nothing to do with the fullness of God’s word and the purpose of repentance!!! They do not want to admit they were wrong about Todd, so they have taken it to another angle to a twisted and out of concept scripture! And yes, I do mean out of concept! God is not fooled by this, neither should you be!

Todd Bentley is using the word of God for his own gain. He is not repentant! If he had been, he would not be in the situation he is now. The teaching on his web site, which I will get to, proves he has not changed one bit. He just wants us to think that everything is A-OK with the big guy upstairs so he can continue his demonic charade.

Remember, in charismania, the leaders all want us, the little people, to believe they have received special revelation, wisdom and understanding, and even a special anointing that we have not, that is necessary to take us to another level of teaching. Don’t listen. Go back to the word of God because the Holy Spirit who resides within you as a true born again believer will guide you into all truth!  These are the very words of Jesus!

I will continue my blogging when I attack his teachings on the Holy Spirit in which the rubber meets the road! In the meantime, you may want to read my article linked below in which I did my own research comparing the claims of the charismania holy spirit and the one taught about in the bible.

Until then, may the Lord give you eyes to see and ears to hear!  Ephesians 1:17-19

Holy Spirit Manifestations

Danger Looming – The Return of Todd Bentley

Todd Bentley Comeback video here

-via his pal Rick Joyner  – and Todd again under the guise of “Christian” ministry as Fresh Fire Ministries is up and burnin’ hot as hell.

It’s a computer comeback!!!  Time to get those old smelly feet in the proverbial water to test it out.  The wade-in is scheduled for September 10. I’m surprised it’s taken as long as it has, as I expected it much sooner than this.

The first 1500 people to sign up get a chance to be up close and personal with Todd to ask those deep, dark questions they always wanted the answers to! Here’s a chance for more lies and deception as Todd the opportunist makes the most of this one and makes his way back up the ladder via those who supported him the most!

Rick and Todd promised for this time of questioning NO ministry and NO cash begging as this time of deception is a free for all!  Hehe. It’s like the drug dealer in the back alley who finds his greatest addict is about to get clean. One more time, for free and you’ll be reeled right back in like a dead, lifeless fish.

Truthfully, I did not watch all of the announcement video, just long enough for a few details to get the warning out.  And long enough to hear about his summer vacation with his kiddies as he had a great and busy one taking them to amusement parks and such. Nothing wrong with that except for the fact that he more than likely paid for the fun from the donations to his “ministry”.

If you believed in Todd, trusted in Todd as a man of god, prayed for his restoration, were ever touched by his ministry of demonic impartation this day is for you! The man of maniacal laughter and spiritual drunkenness is returning.   And you better believe the Most High God is not the god this man is after!  You better repent and warn those you love and care about because if this crazy man gets a platform again who knows what will break out. Oh, and it will NOT be the Holy Spirit we know as the third person of the trinity as Joyner claims. But, it will be their (un)holy spirit – the one of fools and drunkenness.
