Another Lie, Another Deception, and Another False Move of God, Just One More False Revival
Todd Bentley – Lakeland, Florida
It is just more of the same old ridiculous, unscriptural, carnal, and demonically inspired junk that will not and cannot bring true biblical and historical revival, but can be used to help prevent it.
In the character of other counterfeit moves of God that produced no promised revival, the latest lie is from Lakeland, Florida after the failed promised revivals of Kansas City, Toronto, and Pensacola.
It is more of the same unbiblical doctrine and contra-scriptural practices, manipulation, carnality, demonic influences, counterfeit spirituality, and just plain stupidity in the groove of the Kansas City False Prophets (Mike Bickel, the drunken homosexual Paul Cane, and the sexually immoral Bob Jones), the Toronto Experience (John Arnott, influenced by Rodney Howard Brown via Randy Clark), its American clone, the Pensacola fiasco (John Kilpatrick, Steve Hill), and West Africa’s TB Joshua.
No revival came from any of this lunacy, and true revival will not come from Lakeland either for the same reasons – it is not scriptural and not of God.
None of this perverse nonsense has anything to do with a biblical understanding of charismata or Pentecost; the Fruit of the Holy Spirit is “self control” (egreitei) not the lack of it. As a long list of religious liars and theocratic hooligans promoted the previous counterfeit moves of God arose, so there will be others (and in some cases many of the same clowns) jumping on the Lakeland bandwagon. As there were apologists for the unbiblical con-artistry at Toronto and Pensacola such as Guy Chevreau, Elim’s John Lancaster, and Michael Brown, Satan will likewise raise up others to defend Lakeland.
Those who listened to promulgators of the earlier deceptions (such as Wyn Lewis, Colin Dye, Thomas Trask, Gerald Coates, Andrew Evans, Terry Virgo, Pat Robertson, John Glass, Paul Weaver, Andrew Shearman, Rick Godwin, Sandy Miller, David Pytches, Nicky Gumbell, Phil Pringle, Bill Subritzky, Mark DuPont, and others) will without doubt be sucked in again.
As we witnessed, many of the key proponents of the previous demonic delusions such as Bryn Jones, John Wimber, and UK Assemblies of head honcho Warwick Shenton died in the prime of their years when these earlier spiritual counterfeits they pushed were at their peak, never seeing the promised revival they assured us these con jobs heralded. Others like Elim’s Ian Bilby, and the Assemblies of God New Zealand head honcho Wayne Hughes were forced out of the ministry due to moral scandals during their ‘revivals that never were’.
Now we have more of the same. The Lakeland idiocy based on “transference”, the unbiblical practice condemned in Exodus 30 of transferring an anointing.
The Lakeland delusion of “Todd” is as spiritually a sick and perverted maelstrom of idiocy as its demonically inspired predecessors in Toronto and Pensacola, from which it is not visibly different and which after all of the big talk, lies, heresy and hype came to absolutely nothing except scandal, producing no biblical revival as the religious liars who promulgated it assured it would.
Lakeland will be no different. It is Sunderland, The Elim Movement, Brownsville, ‚ TB Joshua’s ” ˜insanity’ and other such defiling trash all over again. It is just more of the same style of unadulterated garbage that will only appeal to the same biblically ignorant and undiscerning so called “Christians”. ‚ It is all a twisted joke that makes Satan laugh as God’s judgment looms on a godless planet with a largely backslidden church in these Last Days. There is no euphemism for spiritual quackery, and neither is there a euphemism for the clowns who are willfully conned by it.
The fallen world and unsaved will only laugh and mock, not repent and believe. But just as with Toronto and Pensacola, who can blame them for mocking a mockery? (2 Timothy 4:3-5).
The signs of Christ’s return, from natural disasters, crises in the Middle East and the moral breakdown of Western civilization surround us. We observe a satanic rise of Islam assisted by international oil interests, the biased media, a debased academic establishment, and corrupt politicians in Washington, Brussels, and Whitehall and growing persecution of Christians. We are confronted with sign after sign of The Lord’s return from the disappearance of democracy in Europe to a backslidden America that has aborted 48 million babies and ordered God out of its schools the 10 Commandments out of its courts. We see an ecumenical acceptance led by Chuck Colson of the harlot church of Rome with its idolatry, necromancy, and false sacramental gospel as “Christian” while it pays billions in compensation to keep its bishops, cardinals, and hierarchy out of prison for protecting pedophile nuns and priests at the expense of not protecting the children whose lives these evil sex perverts destroy. We see a growing anti Semitism setting the stage for Zechariah chapter 12 and The Battle of Armageddon.
We exist in what is supposedly a world with a scientific world view where the scientific impossibilities of random creation and the undeniable relationship between Darwinism and ethnic cleansing are forcibly ignored because God is so hated that the possibility of their being a God demands that science becomes unscientific.
We have Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Lie misleading the Body of Christ into the Emergent Church Apostasy of Brian McLaren and Dan Kimball. Once respected men of God like Billy Graham place converts into apostate churches, and once biblically evangelical seminaries and bible colleges go down the path of theological liberalism, and Christian publishing companies are now owned by secular conglomerates. We have once respected Christian leader like Ravi Zacharias compromising with the Mormon cult.
We have watched TV money preachers discredit the message of Jesus and prostitute the word of God to line their own pockets with the de facto blessings of theocrats like Jack Hayford. We see economic judgment, environmental judgment, pandemics, and now food shortages.
In the USA, we see sexual perversion taught as normative to little children in classrooms while prayer is banned, and homosexuals and lesbians given the right to adopt babies to bring them to be homosexuals and lesbians in The UK. We see street preachers arrested in Australia for proclaiming the gospel and Islamic savages rioting night after night in Bradford, Sydney, and Paris handed immigration and asylum seeker visas by Western governments owned by the oil industry. We have a president Bush, placing a Koran that states ‘God has no Son’ in The White House to honor Islam, while a Bible cannot even bought into Saudi Arabia. That wicked son of the devil elected with the support of Evangelical Christians has celebrated Ramadan in the White House every year since 9/11, calling Mohammed ‘a prophet’, saying “all religions have the same God”.
We now have a divorce rate among Christians as high as among the non-Christians, the genocidal extermination of African Christians by a radical Islam funded by the Saudi Wahabists to whom George Bush and Condoleezza Rice bow the knee continually as they bully Israel to forfeit more of its God given land to Islam. ‚ We have a China whose imports flood into the Wal-Marts of America and ASDAs of Britain as our godless leaders ignore the screams of Christians in Chinese prisons for their faith. Money is the only god of corporation, politician, bank, consumer, and tele-evangelist alike.
We have despotic governments from Asia to Southern Africa whose only policy seems to be the extermination of their own people. We have pro partial birth abortion candidates such as Barack Obama running for president while Rick Warren invites him to his pulpit calling him “the epitome of compassionate liberalism”. I wonder if the infant dragged out of its mother’s womb with a pair of forceps having a puncture drilled into its skull with a catheter inserted into its head to suck its brains out while it is still alive courtesy of a law Barack Obama championed agrees with Rick Warren that Obama is compassionate?
If Jesus were not coming, I would be very depressed. But He is Coming.
The events Christ predicted to watch for are increasing daily, while Rick Warren instructs those deceived by him to ignore the warnings of Christ to be watchful and avoid end time prophecy. As the planet heads for cataclysm and true Christians for persecution, the solution of the backslidden church is simple:
“Go To Lakeland, Get Hands Layed On You By A Pathetic Religious Freak Masquerading As a Minister Of The Lord, And Then Shake, Shrivel, And Laugh” – Indeed, that should solve everything.
“Come Quickly Lord Jesus”.
