This is a must see video.
Why would God say to Mr BAM, BAM Bentley that the Church has to believe in THE angel? What angel is Todd Bentley talking about?
The name of this angel may give us some clues. So might Bentley’s inked skin!!!
Who is this Emma? There are some tattoos that Bentley has on his arm, and they are written in Japanese. People are desperate to find out what these tattoos say, either to verify or put aside something that may or may not be true regarding this angel Emma. His symbols on his arm could well be Kanji symbols which from my research could relate to the following…
***IMPORTANT***Please note this Second Amendment
Since posting this, more information has come to light concerning the Kanji symbols of Mr Bentley’s arm.
My thanks go to Eternal Path for this extremely important and enlightening information…
One of the tattoos that have puzzled people are the three large Japanese Kanji symbols on his left arm. Eternal Path turned to expert Takanori Tomita, a native speaker of Japanese and fluent in English, who translates Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana Symbols. Kanji are ideographic characters. Each Kanji character represents an entire object, idea, or meaning in a visual character(s). Many kanji characters are similar to each other, and some can have different meanings depending on context. The first letter on Todd’s arm means DAI=Big or Great, the middle one EI=Protect or Defend, the last one OU=King or Monarch. In Japanese, DAIOU is often added to provide honor to the subject of mention. In proper order, it would would seem to read “Protect Great King,” however not only is the order wrong, but the character in the middle is incorrectly rendered. Further more, even if the middle character is used at the top, there’s no such word combination like “Protect the Great King”. It doesn’t make any sense in Japanese even if the order of the character is corrected and the middle character is properly written. It is not unusual for Western tattoo translations to be in error. The middle symbol does not represent the Chinese character “David” in this context, as is widely speculated.
Alex Mizuno, another individual versed in Japanese tradition and writing styles, who produces Japanese documentaries, revealed that there is a Japanese word “Emma Daioh” which means “Emma, the Great King”, which is used very commonly in his culture. This God is sometimes simply called “Emma-sama (sama is added for respect)” or “Emma.” Buddhists recognize Emma-sama as Yama, who rules the spirits of the dead in Naraka (hell). He said Todd’s erred tattoo was in favor of the latter translation. The tongues of flame accenting the Kanji symbols also support his position depicting the god of Naraka.
In Japan Yanluo is referred to as Emma (older Yemma) , or Emma-ō (閻魔大王 Enma Dai-Ō, “Great King Yama”) in someway. You can clearly see that the first three symbols, those being 魔大王 are inked into his skin. But there is a symbol that is missing [ 閻 ]. The symbols are in a different order too.
What everyone is trying to find out is what do these symbols mean, especially in light of Emma-O the angel that appears in The Satanic Bible and Emma-O according to Japanese mysticism.
If anyone knows anymore about this and if there is any significance concerning the order and the missing symbol, or if you can read Japanese please comment here on this blog. But if you want to remain anonymous you can let me know by contacting me at:
Even if the tatt’s do not speak of the Japanese Ruler of Hell. The Angel called “Emma” was most assuredly spoken of by Bentley in the past, and now it seems he has become ashamed of her as he has changed his story on his web-site and doesn’t call her by name, but rather a ‘particular angel’.
Here is a related article by someone that I respect in regards to her research…
Also another site with added information about certain images contained within Bentley’s tattoos is found HERE.
There is a skull within a Rosicrucian Rose the skull/devil looks like it symbolises the Oni which is another Japanese ‘two horned devil’. The words to die is to gain is written below this particular tattoo.
Andrew Strom has put together a very interesting article on all of this. Also there are photos of other tattoos that Bentley has put on his body since becoming a Christian which are clearly occultic. Andrew actually writes that…
“My difficulty with Todd Bentley’s ministry is not whether he has recently covered himself with tattoos or pierced himself silly, but the SOURCE of his power. He keeps changing his position on this. Sometimes he says it’s the Holy Spirit and a lot of the time it’s his angels…
“Many have said that they believe that Florida is a ‘mixture’. Personally, I do not believe ‘mixture’ is involved. I believe these deceiving spirits have hi-jacked Todd’s ministry… Either the healings are of God or they are not. Which is it?
“People can be healed in spiritualist churches. I have witnessed, close-up, first hand, people being instantly healed by mediums and faith healers. I have also seen people healed by the power of the Holy Spirit. To begin with there is no discernible difference. However the counterfeit healings soon begin to either go wrong or something far worse comes upon the person.”When God heals someone – He adds ‘no sorrow.’
“I know Todd started off OK – I was there in his early meetings… In September 2000 I stood in front of Todd and gave him the warning that God gave me for him. “Beware, the leaven of the Pharisees, lest an angelic leaven enters your ministry.”
“One month later, according to Todd’s own account, at a meeting in Grants Pass Oregon, Cal Pierce walked in with Branham’s ‘Healing Revival’ angel in tow, Todd saw and accepted this spirit without reservation. His ‘angels’ have been with him ever since.
Please use discernment in all things.
