Todd Bentley is now divorced and remarried. He also fell back into drinking during the meetings in Lakeland. But long time before his fall from grace, during the meetings in Lakeland in June 2008, we sent out a warning. Not because of sins, all of us being forgiven by the Messiah 2000 years ago, but because of his false anointing from Toronto. His foundations are based on worship of angels, and Bentley seems to have been visited by a false Messiah. Such false Messiah`s will lead us into sin and disobedience, and often into worship of money. Take a look at these two links:
There is still a need to warn the World about false teachers from Toronto. Todd Bentley is a man that can preach for an hour, without even once open his Bible and quote scriptures.
Here is some lines from our warning from 24.june 2008:
Toronto Airport Church has a story of being visited by out of the body and super natural experiences. From uncontrollable laughter, sounds of animals, people who appear to be drunk, raving around with out self-control in the hall. Gal 5:21-22 clearly explains the difference between fruits that comes from our sinful nature, and fruits of the Holy Spirit. Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copland have twisted the scriptures, when they defend this kind of sinful behavior. They say that these people are «drunk in the Spirit». As Hagin once stated in Toronto: «since many people thought the Apostles were drunk, they must have behaved, as they were drunk». This is a total short circuit. Peter tells us the rather opposite: «These men are not drunk, but are speaking in other tongues». (Languages).
On the day of Pentecost, 3.000 Jews heard the Gospel preached by the first Messianic Jews. In the wildest days of the outpouring from Toronto, nobody could hear any sound message coming from this people under the influence of these counterfeit Spirits, who act like animals, etc. To say that this is/was a visit by the Holy Spirit is a point black blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Jesus warned us: Those who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, has committed a sin that will never be forgiven. This is a sin that leads to death. We are talking about life and death for hundred of thousands of people.
Todd Bentley, most of the time speaks about him self, or about fenomenalism: His out of the body-experiences. This is typical for New Age teachers. In the video from Toronto Airport Church, Bentley tells us about such an experience. He claims to have a «Moses-experience» in the US city of Seattle, in the form of a pillar of light. Bentley goes on saying that «no one could see this pillar of light», only he. The other people around Him, would only see him (Bentley) rolling around on the floor. How can Bentley know this? How can any one control or double-cheek this kind of «super-apostolic» experiences towards what is written in the Bible about this topic? In fact, it is possible to expose Bentley as a false prophet and a false teacher. In Exo 13: 21-22, the pillar of light can be seen by everyone. The Pillar is guiding a whole people out of Egypt. On the hotel room in Seattle, Bentley and the other people gathered are visited by a Spirit that is making them scream in pain. On the video, this sounds like torture. I fully believe, that there was a Spirit tormenting them. Most likely a demon.
If you willingly accept this kind of anointing, you will not be able to escape without getting deliverance. You will be in need of prayer´s and the laying of hands of faithful Christians. Vi have to be careful not to be deceived. Satan is at his high of deception, when he appears as an angel of light. We can only discern him, by learning from the scripture. Only with help of The Holy Spirit we can discern which spirits are counterfeit, and which is not from God. When spirits and demons visits you and claim to be «Jesus», they are not. The knowledge of how you can find and met Jesus is to be found in the Bible. He will be seated in Heaven, till the day He comes back in the sky`s with full power and glory. It surprises many Christians, when sensible Christian leaders we love, goes on acknowledging the anointing of Todd Bentley as a true Holy Spirit anointing. We have to pray that such Christian leaders are given the gift of discernment.
There are many wonderful people visiting Lakeland. But they are all in extreme danger of being deceived, with the tragic consequences that might follow. Let me remind all of you about Matthew 11.20. In the cities, where most of the miracles of Jesus were performed, people placed them self under judgment and perished. The reason: They did not repent. God TV has for a long time been of great concern by all who do not want to submit to such kinds of anointing. The truth is that so-called Christian TV, today is the main culprit of making it possible for false teachers and false prophets to go global with their deceptive messages.
My God judge me with the same measure I judge them. Amen. 24.06.08.
