This is a RED FLAG post
keeps popping up.
And that name is…. drum roll please… Todd Bentley.
Now, as I live on the other side of the world the Buzz about Bentley has not hit our shores yet, but from what I can read from people who have been to his circus ahem, shows or whatever they are… there is clearly a demonic overtone. One that sounds very similar to the Toronto Blessing and Kansas City Prophets. He is linked to Patricia King from the Elijah list — enough said!
One post from “More Books and Things” called “Bentley Book” is a good one in connecting all the dots with other false prophets and another one called “Bizarre Bentley Things” has a few links to the Bentley videos.
“Sola Dei Gloria” has written a very important post called “Most Contagious Anointing – Florida” and when I read this my ears pricked up. Why? Because of a certain Church that certain people that I know attend will more than likely welcome this phenomena with open arms and with little discernment! This Church is always on the look out for spiritual manifestations. It is always seeking after signs and wonders. This Church is very familiar with angel visitations already, and has had guest speakers ask little children to encourage such visits and have asked them to keep a night time journal to document such “Night Seasons“.
Speaking of angel visitations, Bentley has many angels hang out with him and dissect him, literally.
The scary thing is this… the witnesses to such spiritual things noted the following manifestations…
- They come back with this kind of childlike drunken stupor.
- Descriptions of a burning sensation either in their veins, heads or stomachs.
- Descriptions of being washed back and forth like the waves in the ocean;
- Dancing about like drunk…
- Inappropriate yelling and screaming like they’re at a football game;
- Young men whistling over and over and holding their heads and claiming that they “feel the Holy Spirit about to split them in two”;
- One young man’s back two teeth turned completely to some metallic finish.
- People with their eyes rolled in the back of their heads and weaving around like they’re lost.
- Women just gyrating and pulsating like they’re being ravaged from behind from some unseen force.
- Drunken uncontrollable laughter in the middle of a solemn prayer time.
Sola Dei Gloria’s post has much more about these spiritual manifestations and then the post ends in scripture that actually states that this behaviour is actually demonic. I have to say I concur 100%.
In fact after reading about the angel visitations and some of the above behaviour — especially the woman gyrating and pulsating like they’re being ravished from behind — sounds an awful like an un-holy spiritual union is taking place. The manifestations are no different to kundalini and I am convinced that this outward behaviour is a reflection of something that is happening in the spirit realm. The Bentley’s of this world will call it a revival, but I think that this a judgement from God. These people are becoming unequally yoked in the most un-holiest way.
Another post well worth a read is “The Fruit Of The Spirits Todd Bentley Operates Under, and a comment…” this has a link to a couple of youtubes that are extremely disturbing to say the least….
If you watched this then you know this guy testifies of an Angel reaching into his body and operating on him…Todd talks of basically the same thing happening to himself in this disturbing clip…of being whisked up into heaven and placed upon an operating table: Todd Bentley and the pillar of fire.
Does anyone else hear anything familiar in these testimonies to something else?
I watched just a few of the youtubes and I did so only after I prayed for protection under the blood of the Lamb, Lord Jesus Christ, and I was absolutely horrified at what I heard. Something deep and spiritual is happening, people are being transported to some kind of spiritual realm and they are being operated on! This German minister, who intends to take this particular anointing back home with him, said that he followed a what he calls an “angel” back to his hotel room and then he was knocked out for several hours. In that time he remembers this spiritual being — that he calls an angel — playing around with his insides like an operation was happening.
I have no doubt in my mind that this phenomena will increase world wide. Similar things will happen to people around the globe but they will interpret their experience through their own cultural/religious lens. What one person says is an angel visitation, another will call it an Alien abduction while the hindu/ New Age/ Occultist will call it a kundalini experience, aligning the chakras, and the list goes on.
Nowhere in the the bible does it say that this kind behaviour is in any way a good thing; show me where it says that it is good and from God! I bet you would have to do some serious scriptural gymnastics to say that this is a sound biblical practice! People are testing this in the wrong way, they are saying to themselves… if this is from you God, then give it to me…let me experience it, then I know it will be true. The true test is to search the scriptures to see if this is from God. Scriptures in context and without using any scriptural gymnastics!
An article called “A BIBLICAL PRECEDENT Aliens from Outer Space, or Angels?” is a must read for those who are trying to find out about the truth regarding this phenomena! Here is a quote from the article…
From the account in Genesis 6:1-4 reams of mythology have been generated. The New Testament also makes note of this event in three key passages: I Peter 3:19, 20; II Peter 2:4-6; and Jude 1:6-7. The facts of the case are simple and the supporting arguments are too many and varied to detail each one in this writing, but the event may be summarized as follows:
1. Angelic beings (“sons of God”) came to Earth, lustfully desiring the attractive daughters of men (Genesis 6:2).
2. They took whomever they chose as wives (Genesis 6:2).
3. This angelic intervention occurred not only before but also after the time of Noah’s Flood (Genesis 6:4).
4. The offspring from these unlawful unions were physical giants (Nephalim – “fallen ones” – in the Hebrew) (Genesis 6:4).
5. The fallen angels who committed this sin were incarcerated in Tartarus where they now await judgment (II Peter 2:4 Greek).
Arrogant Goliath, who challenged David and was slain by the latter (I Samuel 17:49-51), was one of the Nephalim (“fallen ones”), a giant offspring from an unlawful union between a fallen angel, or demon, and a human. Goliath was among the second, or post-Flood, outbreaks of such giants. He stood nearly 10 feet tall.
6. Only a portion of the angels who originally fell with Lucifer committed this atrocity, since all who thus sinned were imprisoned, but there are other fallen angels who are not bound (Jude 1:6).
7. The sin of the angels was the same as that of Sodom and Gomorra; i.e., they gave themselves to fornication, specifically going after a different kind of flesh (Jude 1:7).
The answer is clear. Genesis 6:1-4 records a unique intervention of certain fallen angels into the affairs of humanity. They intervened by inbreeding with women, and their horrendous offspring – part-angel and part-human were doomed to genetic failure and judgment. This was an attempt on the part of Satan to pollute the “seed of the woman” (Genesis 3:15) so that no conqueror could eventually come and defeat him. The elaborate plan almost succeeded, but God spared Noah, keeping him unpolluted, “perfect in his generations” (Genesis 6:9), thereby preserving the way for Jesus Christ to be the fulfillment of Genesis 3:15.
Though this most strategic aspect of Satan’s agenda was foiled, the angelic interbreeding wrought havoc to this Earth. Wickedness became so widespread, even into the animal world, that God had to send the judgment of Noah’s flood. The actual existence of the “mythological” figures of the satyr (goat-man) and centaur (horse-man), for example, are monstrosities which likely have an historical basis in fact. Demonic meddling in animal genetics could very well have brought about the grotesque assemblages of the “gods” that we read about in ancient mythology. When the outbreak occurred again, after the Flood, God imprisoned the wicked spirits in Tartarus and omnipotently brought the outbreak to an end.
The darkened heart of the unbeliever, nevertheless, was a ripe place for Satan and his demons to sustain the memory of these fallen angels. The angels had become gods. They were to be worshipped. They had come from the stars. They had imparted “life” to humans. They had performed spectacular miracles, and revealed great truths, never before imagined. They had returned to the stars (according to Satan’s delusion), but not before they left a promise to come again! Such are the themes of so many stories and beliefs around the world that the masterful counterfeit of Christian truth is almost frightening. A perfect example of all this is recorded in Acts 14:8-13 where Paul and Barnabas are assumed by the Lycaonians to be human manifestations of their gods who had come down to do miracles. God’s work was attributed to demons.
