"The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to the grave and brings up. 1 Samuel 2:6
In the meantime, when an innumerable multitude of people had gathered together, so that they trampled one another, He began to say to His disciples first of all, "Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. "For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known. "Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops. "And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. "But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him. Luke 12:1-5
Jesus warned us not only to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known but to fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell. If men had the real fear of God they would not do or say the things that they have been doing or saying! They would think twice about even their needless words because Jesus told all in Matthew 12:36 "But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. And for some the day of judgment may come sooner than they think because they have chosen to ignore the word of God which is a very dangerous thing to do! God’s word is unchanging:
I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift. Ephesians 4:1-7
And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. Ephesians 5:2
And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, 1 Thessalonians 3:12
Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
Walking in love, abounding in love to one another and to all, bearing with one another in love and being an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity are commands and not options for true Christians!
God Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ- from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:12-16).
But God didn’t give some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers for the purposes of robbing, using, fleecing and even killing the sheep! Dr. Rodney Howard Browne in his winter Camp meeting at the USF Sun dome in Tampa Florida in January 1996 preached to the ministers in attendance and told them, when I was there that the sheep had to be fleeced. Otherwise they would have wool in front of their eyes and will not see where they are going. That was it for me! Rodney demonstrated Jesus Christ was not His Lord because He didn’t put the interest of the sheep first and perverted Ephesians 4:12-13 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
And my real documented experience has been that many pastors are liars, rapists and thieves who care more for themselves than the sheep. They talk much but the weak they have not strengthened, nor have they healed those who were sick, nor bound up the broken, nor brought back what were driven away, nor sought what was lost; but with force and cruelty have ruled them.
Most pastors and their churches are anemic, impotent and useless! So obviously something is wrong with the pastors and their leadership and teaching! Otherwise Christianity would be total different in America and a vital force changing things for the good as Jesus did? It's to be noted that you don't solve a problem but not denying there is a problem? Character assassinating the messenger doesn’t change the message?
This 'touch not the Lord's anointed' is a shameless ruse to keep the sheep in line. But any leadership must be looked at critically, and held accountable. If the Catholic Church used this line as a defense for pedophile priests, we would justifiably be full of outrage...and we should be full of outrage when it is used as an excuse for not prosecuting criminal behavior, and for not holding leaders accountable for any other crimes they might commit...nobody is above the law. And God’s word is unchanging:
This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 4:18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore, putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor," for we are members of one another.
"Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:17-32
It’s a fact that many of the so called revivals and their leaders are from the pits of hell and are devoid of “love” which is the mark of a true Christian. Unlike Jesus they take the lives of the sheep instead of laying down their own lives by taking money from the sheep in false pretenses like Todd Bentley did in the so called Lakeland Revival.
Todd Bentley, the criminally convicted homosexual pedophile turned drunken heretic and adulterer who kicked old ladies in the face and stomach on YouTube at the failed Lakeland, Florida counterfeit revival has entered into a biblically adulterous re- marriage while under a “process of restoration” led by biblically proven false prophet Rick Joyner.
Bentley was ring master at a debacle of lunacy and false healing debunked on national TV orchestrated by the infamous Strader family, whom the District Attorney implicated in financial scandals defrauding elderly Christians of millions of dollars. While the Florida District Attorney publicly names Pastor Steve Strader as complicit in the swindling, his brother was sent to prison for over 30 years as a professional gangster under American anti racketeering RICO statutes.
Despite its unbiblical doctrines and practices, Wendy Alec of the so-called “God Channel” denounced opponents of the madness and heresy as being of Satan. Lunatic fringe figures such John Arnott, Rick Joyner, Che An, Bill Johnson, and C. Peter Wagner decided this fiasco was a revival in the character of the similarly failed counterfeit revivals in Toronto and Pensacola.
Bob Jones was debunked as a sexual predator with vulnerable women while Paul Cain was publicly disclosed to be a drunken pervert with a life long history of alcoholism and homosexuality.
So what happened to all the supporters of Todd Bentley at his Coronation at Lakeland, Florida who were very vocal about what God was going to do with and as a result of Todd Bentley? (Todd Bentley's Apostolic and Prophetic Commissioning 4/4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAnNSiZfgvI )
I guess the deceivers and liars thought that that if they closed their eyes, their mouths and their eyes it would all go away and be just a bad nightmare?
If only such things happened in life where we can just change the TV channel whenever we don’t want others to know how bad and deceived we really are!
But real life is not like that! And the bible tells us:
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. "You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. "Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:15-20
"Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. Luke 17:3
It's a fact that Todd Bentley is an unrepentant thief, liar, adulterer, and scoundrel who has demonstrated by his words or deeds. So how can we forgiven someone who is not a Christian but a false prophet who has been rebuked and refuses to repent? We cannot!
And Rick Joyner, the deceiver, did not addressed at all the real issues like Todd Bentley was and is still an unrepentant drunkard, liar, thief, adulterer and wizard who had not confessed his sins nor repented of them! For example Todd asked for 1,000 people to donate $ 1,000 dollars ($ 1million) so he could make a down payment of $ 475,000 on property on a lake in Lakeland for a love nest for Todd and his mistress Jessa.
Todd stole the money under false pretense and he is obligated by God’s word to restore the money!
And Todd’s wife Shonnah Bentley was just as much of a liar and deceiver who carried on with the masquerade of a perfect and wonderful marriage at Todd’s coronation in Lakeland but knew all about Todd’s being a drunkard and a womanizer!
It’s a fact that all those who were involved in this demonic revival and claimed to be super apostles and prophets and having absolute no discernment about Todd being a womanizer, a drunkard, an adulterer, a liar and a thief before and during the revival! So they and their supporters are not different from Todd or Rick. They are liars and deceivers who are not sons of God but sons of hell!
A blogger named AriseMyLove on April 19, 2009 posted the following that is to be noted:
Rick Joyner is trying to get people to “throw stones” at Todd Bentley so that his critics look like the “Pharisees”.
However, the real criticism of Todd Bentley, let us never forget, is the Satanic teachings of Bob Jones, Rick Joyner, Bill Hamon, Paul Cain, and C Peter Wagner.
Bentley’s sin is simply the fruit of Joyner’s own false ministry.
Let us not fall prey to Joyner’s Anti Christ tactics.
I’d much rather ask the questions of Joyner than respond to his demented videos.
Again, Joyner is baiting everyone to make us look like Pharisees who are casting hypocritical stones at Todd Bentley for his sin.
It is not Todd’s sin that we care about so much, it is the Jezebel breeding ground of false prophecy that we care about, the false teachings of the NAR.
Jesus says that false prophetess Jezebel “teaches sexual immorality”
so Todd’s sin, like Bob Jones sexual sin and Paul Cain’s sexual sin and Ted Haggard’s sexual sin — is all FRUIT of the NAR.
The FRUIT of Lakeland is fornication, adultery, lying and drunkenness.
Jesus tells us to judge false prophets by their FRUIT.
We know who Joyner and Bentley are because of their rotten FRUIT.
We all have sin, Mr. Joyner, so we could care less how you want to frame Todd Bentley now because you both need cash for your “ministries”.
The real question is, Mr. Joyner, how you and your friends “prophesied” so wrongly about Todd Bentley a 10 months ago.
You said, Mr. Joyner, that Todd’s revival was the great outpouring, was a great move of God.
So, repent, Mr. Joyner. Repent Mr. Wagner. Repent, Mr. Jones. Repent, James Goll. Repent Stacey Campbell. REPENT Bill Johnson. Repent Lou Engle.
REPENT, you liars of hell. You should be grateful for Todd’s critics, because someone is giving you the Gospel to save your own souls BEFORE you stand before your Judge!
REPENT RICK JOYNER
And HOW DARE YOU RICK JOYNER TRY TO RE INSTATE TODD BENTLEY TO MINISTRY WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS MINISTERS NEED TO BE OF “ONE WIFE!!!”
The Lord rebuke you, Satan.
Look up in the pulpit, it’s a wolf, it’s a demon…NO, it’s super Todd!
Able to leap over God’s truth with a single bound!
Able to heal the sick by kicking the afflicted to death!
Able to supernaturally travel to far off places, third heaven, open portals!
Able to magically change his wife into a younger woman!
Able to deceive some of the very elect!
