hyped revival is over in Lakeland, Florida ... it was never
a real revival from heaven anyway.
Bottom line is
that Fresh Fire Ministries couldn't verify at least three of the
many, many reported healings for ABC's Nightline news show. This
was 3 1/2
months after the so called healing revival started ...
Todd Bentley never recovered
from a few simple questions,
"Where's the proof?"
Itís almost a
sin to laugh at the Todd Bentley affair, this ending to a true or
false revival, depending on which side your on, is being written
by God in heaven.

of course that

All of the
suffering by the hands of evil men since time began had been
witnessed by the Father and the Son.
People now had

St Paul warned all false prophets in
1 Corinthians 14:36-40
Did the word of God come
originally from you? Or was it you only that it
reached? If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual,
let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the
commandments of the Lord.
But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant.
Let all things be done decently and in order.
Most people in the church
know what happened with God TV, Todd Bentley, ABC Nightline News
show. Todd Bentley took a ten day break for refreshing after the
ABC show aired July 8th with no real clear answers from Fresh Fire
or God TV. Todd comes back for a day or two and then disappears
for weeks. Rumors of adultery surface a month before the truth
comes out that indeed Todd's wife has separated from her husband
after going through counseling for several years.
Fresh Fire Ministries said
in their initial statement that it had nothing to do with another
woman, but a few days later they admitted to Todd having an
emotional affair with a female staff member of Fresh Fire with
more admittance of another affair three years ago with another
female staff member in Canada of which Todd and his wife were
already seeing a marriage counselor over. Five months later Todd's
divorce was final and Todd has now remarried to his former live in
I will write up a time line
later, but ... if you want dirty laundry just google Todd Bentley
Lakeland, Florida. Plenty to read over there.
"true humility is when you enjoy doing things the Lords way"
Todd did not enjoy doing
things the Lords way ... I really think Todd was completely
deceived. To out and out lie is one thing, but if you have also
been deceived it gets easier.
The devil is trickier than I
I wanted revival so bad I
was willing to accept Todd Bentley and all of his flaws just to
have a tingle. After the ABC Nightline news show I repented,
changed my mind about what sin is.
I always thought I had the
gift of discernment, but if that was true why did it take 70 days
to figure out the con job Todd was doing? I am a better solider of
the cross now, but I had to learn from my mistakes.
The opposite of the devil is
not God ... it is the devil pretending to be God.
The devil wanted you to
think that Todd Bentley is a healer, a prophet, the anointed one.He's just a deceiver
like his buddy the devil. I have often thought the Lord Jesus let
this happen just to see who belongs to Him.

The promise of an end times
revival is not in the bible, but instead it is from man.
The next great revival may very well be not from man, but in
the second coming of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
I've been told that true
revival is in the heart of a person (new or old) in the body of
Let Romans 12:1-2 be our guide
beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you
present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which
is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this
world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you
may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will
God has to get all of the glory, not man.
St John 7:16-18
Jesus said, "My doctrine is not Mine,
but His who sent Me. If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know
concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak
on my own authority. He who speaks from himself seeks his own
glory, but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true,
and no unrighteous is in Him.
This web page was started January 2002 ... I will continue
to search for revival, but 7 years later I am wiser and I will
exercise that wisdom for all that care to visit here.
Thank you for your prayers ...
