This video will come as a big surprise to many. The things I’m going to share here are things I’ve never shared publicly before. I pray that you will feel my heart in this. I’m not here to point fingers. I’m here to help the church come back to the true life we have in Jesus Christ.
In this video I will share about my personal experience with Todd Bentley back in 2003, how that was the reason I left the prophetic movement, and how later in 2008 I wrote a warning about Todd and the Lakeland Revival. Even if you don’t know about Todd Bentley and the Lakeland Revival, I’m still sure you’ll get something out of this video, because I’ll be sharing many things.
I’ll share how a prophet came to me and prophesied that Todd Bentley would fall, that the Lakeland Revival would end, that Todd would rise up again, and that his next fall would be even greater. This is exactly what we’ve just seen over these last weeks. This was a test to show that when Antichrist comes, the church is not ready or able to discern it.
I’ll share what God has shown me to be the real problem in all of this. The problem isn’t just Todd Bentley. The problem is a lack of the fear of God, discernment, deliverance, and the true Gospel!
When we talk about discernment, I recommend you see this video about false spirits in the church:
(False Spirits vs. The Holy Spirit In The Church https://youtu.be/DIgpVfdFDp8 )
Today we have people praying, “More, God! More, God!” when a demon is manifesting. They believe the manifestation is of the Holy Spirit when it’s actually demonic and needs to be cast out.
Not only is there a big lack of discernment, but also of deliverance. Jesus cast out demons and has called us to do the same.
The next the church is lacking is the true Gospel. We’ve built the ‘gospel’ and our response to the ‘gospel’ on one verse, Romans 10:9, which states:
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Almost everyone today uses this verse as a ‘sinners prayer’ to ‘get people saved’. But, this verse is really being taken out of context if we say this is what people need to do in order to be born again.
This verse is actually part of a long letter written to already believes without chapters and verses. These verses in chapter 10 were not written to tell sinners how to respond to the Gospel.
There’s nothing about true repentance here in this verse. There’s nothing about how baptism in water is a washing away of our sins (Acts 2:38), clothed with Christ (Galatians 3,27), and a dying and rising up with Christ (Romans 6). There’s also nothing about how baptism with the Holy Spirit is for everyone, and that it’s necessary in order to live as a disciple of Jesus.
If you take the time to read throughout the Book of Acts how the early church preached the Gospel and how people responded to it, you won’t find “Ask Jesus into your heart,” or “Pray this prayer after me,” anywhere.
Instead you see things like this:
“”Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.” (Acts 2:38-39)
Yes! Repentance, faith, and baptism in water and with the Holy Spirit is how those in the early church responded to the Gospel. See more here:
(How to meet God – Gospel with cards https://youtu.be/sNme1cRSODI )
Everyone in the new covenant, after the cross, got baptized right away.
(The robber on the cross was during the old covenant. There was no baptism to Christ before the cross. Those at that time got baptized with John’s baptism, and later got re-baptized in Jesus’ name. Read Acts 19. See more here: What about the robber on the cross? He did not get baptized? https://youtu.be/U8eydsfgD-c )
Lack of discernment, deliverance, and the Gospel is the main reason we see what we’re seeing in the church today with Todd Bentley and many others. This, together with a lack of the fear of God is the problem.
A prophet prophesied ten years ago that the church is like a big ship that’s going down. Water has come into the ship and it’s going down, but God is calling people out to build small lifeboats all over, to save people from the big ship when it goes down.
Please watch the WHOLE video and pray about this. Then take the time to see if what I’m saying is in line with the Bible. Not with your traditions or my traditions, but with the Word of God – and ONLY the Word of God.
Start going through the Book of Acts. See how people there came to faith and what they did when they heard the true Gospel.
Please share this prophetic video with everyone you know. Please believe with me that we’ll see a true revival and breakthrough like never before!
God bless you!
