Televised Wolves Investigated

Recently, the televised miracles of wolves fleecing the flock have been investigated. Watch this report:


Televangelist Benny Hinn Heckled at Airport ‘World’s Greatest Scammer’


Signs + Wonders + Dollars = Wolf Tracks

Requiring a Sign

Benny Hinn is a pastor and evangelist known worldwide for his healing ministry. He is a best selling author and a household name among believers and non-believers alike. He is a true master at placing emphasis on personal experience during worship services. Love or hate him, Benny is a unique character unlike any we know. Hinn’s worldwide organization is big and depends heavily on “miracles, signs and wonders” to finances his healing ministry. While the faithful support his onstage antics and partake in falling under the anointing, others remain convinced he is a fraud and rank him with the other mega-church swindlers. While there are many issues with his ministry, perhaps most disturbing is the untold number of innocent people who travel long distances in hope of a miracle. In most if not every instant, these travel-weary believers return home having their hope give way to despair and their faith, in many cases, give way to doubt.

“I Command Organs to be Created!”

Joshua Mills is still up to the same old gold dust nonsense. Here he is in March at the Glory Conference in the Phillippines, deceiving the gullible sheep by getting covered in gold dust and trying to release creative and recreative(?) signs and wonders.

At the 45 second mark Mills says, “Right now I command organs to be created in your body!”
How did that go for you Joshua? Any success? Inquiring minds want to know. And why just organs? Why not arms and legs? Or fingers? How convenient. Those people can’t see organs, they are on the inside. Got any documented testimonies with x-ray follow up? And if God is releasing creative and recreative miracles, why is He always releasing the same old gold dust? It’s getting kind of repetitive. Why not try something more creative?
And by the way, if your command for new organs to be created didn’t work, doesn’t that make you a false prophet?


Morningstar Ministries’ Recent Healing Conference

Morningstar Ministries’ Recent Healing Conference
TBC Staff – EN

Mar 28 2013
[TBC: Rick Joyner's Morningstar Ministries recently held a Healing Conference and advertised the gathering with the following wording]:

HEALING CONFERENCE
Watch LIVE on MorningStarTV.com This Weekend!
March 21-23, 2013

“The emphasis of this conference is going to be deliverance, one of the most overlooked aspects of healing.” – Rick Joyner

Special Guests: Father Marc van Rossem, Dr. P.G. Vargis, and Aliss Cresswell

[TBC: Of the guests, Father Marc van Rossem is a Charismatic Catholic. He also does other engagements in which: “Fr. Marc Van Rossem from the Netherlands conducted this retreat, which led the retreatants into a deeper relationship with God [and] a strong focus on Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament which opened up our hearts to receiving the word that Fr. Marc spoke to us. Father Marc spoke on Healing and the Holy Eucharist and also Carthusian Sprituality: Finding God Inside the World.

“He shared with us how the example of the Desert Fathers can be relevant to us in our society. We must make time to spend in our “cell” (our time in prayer) to allow the Lord to change us and to enter into a deeper relationship with Him” (Newfoundland Catholic Renewal, On This Rock newsletter, Edition 5, 2007, p. 5)…

‘Restored’ Bentley Still Punching People

Todd Bentley: “The Lord told me, and remember I didn’t know he had a broken sternum or broken ribs, the Lord said I want you to punch him in the sternum as hard as you can, and I’m thinkin’ to myself, you know, you know, restoration, Rick’s here, my first service, you know, God you want me to punch this guy? And it just didn’t make sense to me, and I thought, Lord he’s dying, you know he lost over 40 pounds. So anyways, I punched him in that broken sternum, and he ended up on the ground and just vibrating under the power of God. He gets up and immediately you could see a change in his face and his countenance and uh, long story short, he was totally healed of cancer, the broken sternum was healed, the ribs were healed…”
Rick Joyner: “Instantly!”
Bentley: “Instantly!”
Joyner: “With the punch!”

Evangelist Benny Hinn is known for his massive “healing” crusades which are held all over the world. Most recently, Hinn traveled to Brazil, where Benny Hinn Ministries (BHM) reports that “an amazing revival” is taking place.
During the 16 February crusade in Manaus, however, it is reported that Benny Hinn’s son, Joshua, was arrested, along with two of Hinn’s bodyguards, for assaulting a deaf man who tried to approach the stage …

British MP seeks to block B.C. evangelist’s entry

British MP seeks to block B.C. evangelist’s entry

A controversial Canadian evangelist who attracted a huge U.S. following in 2008 before his sudden fall from grace is now under fire in Britain ahead of a planned tour that one London-area MP claims could bring physical harm to unwitting Christians in search of a faith-healing experience.

Todd Bentley, a 36-year-old preacher from Abbotsford, B.C., gained international attention four years ago when the charismatic sermoniser — heavily tattooed and a recovered drug addict — led a series of old-time Christian revival meetings in Florida that drew as many as 8,000 people a night during the summer of 2008.

The Golden Con Game

“The con man [or woman] (or wolf in sheeps clothing) will look you straight in the eye and lie to you, telling you he’s a doctor if that’s what you need to hear – or a lawyer, or a police officer, or a businessperson….A con artist looks like a mother, a grandmother, a priest, a banker, an insurance salesman, a trustee, a photographer, an executive, a policeman, a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a mechanic, a craftsman, a diplomat, a foreign dignitary, a student. A con artist looks like me, a con artist looks like you….All in all, the con artist is a master psychologist. He is a psychological illusionist, able to convince anyone to viscerally believe in his illusions. (Chuck Whitlock, Chuck Whitlock’s Scam School, Macmillan, New York, NY, 1997, page 20).

The Bizarre Bentley

Christianity Today reports on the bizarre world of Bentley…


‘Crazy, Bizarre, and Wonderful’
Such is the world of Todd Bentley and the Lakeland Revival of 2008, as depicted in new documentary.

9/13/2011
Social media and satellite television now enable Christians around the world to follow spiritual events as never before. Probably the most notable example to date is the Lakeland Revival of 2008. So it’s only appropriate that we now have Lakeland, a documentary about the controversial, dynamic event led by pierced, tattooed Canadian evangelist Todd Bentley.

Faith Healers and Dealers

About those televangelists, faith healers, and dealers who are wolves in sheeps clothing…

Sometime ago this question appeared in a local newspaper. It read: “Why don’t televangelists go to hospitals and cure people instead of just a few on TV?”[1] Good question. To validate their message as being from God, Jesus, Peter and the other apostles healed unbelievers wherever they encountered them. Maybe today’s so-called healers don’t heal in public places like hospitals because contrary to their claims, they really can’t heal. Their ministry is more for show than for go.

Why are unbelievers not amazed by the miracles that faith healers pretend to do? As in Acts 3:1-11, why are people not “wondering” after the sick and lame who are healed? Perhaps it’s because there’s really nothing happening to wonder about.

Quote from Faith Healers and Dealers
http://guardinghisflock.com/2011/07/15/faith-healers-and-dealers/


‘You Can Do Miracles’ and other Myths

At Solution Ministries, Ron and Marilyn Marquardt want you to know that…

God wants you to live your dreams. He desires that your desires are fulfilled…He desires you to enter into rest and an effortless lifestyle of success.

Fulfilled desires? An effortless lifestyle of success? Really? Where does God say that in the Bible?

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.” John 15:18,19

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2,3

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” 2 Timothy 4:3

When they do evangelism training, rather than sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Marquardts teach their trainees to just share the ‘love of God’. They seem to have missed the fact that if people don’t hear the bad news (the wages of sin is death), they won’t know their need for the good news (that Jesus paid their wages).

They also teach their trainees that they can do miracles. Their ad, which can also be seen on the Elijah List, says: You Can Do Miracles: Free Classes at Spirit Training Seminars.

The truth is, you can’t do miracles. Only God can. Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 [bold mine]

‘See now that I, I am He,
And there is no god besides Me;
It is I who put to death and give life.
I have wounded and it is I who heal,
And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.

Deuteronomy 32:39

We must be discerning sheep, and learn to measure everything with Scripture. Even ‘nice’ wolves are still…wolves. Can you spot the wolves in sheeps clothing? If not, study your Bible and ask God to grant you discernment.

After getting only $20 a head for the sparse Reno sheeple round up, the hirelings have decided the next one’s free (plus free will offering?). Maybe by the time they get to Virginia for the next show they will have had time to gather the medical evidence for the Reno claims.

Kind of makes you long for the old days, when charlatans were run out of town.


“He Saw Lightening in the Room”

Looks like a handful of undiscerning gullible sheep are falling for the old lightening on the photo scam…

Lightning

Last night Todd said that the Angel of the Lord was on stage for only the third time in three years. As people were being healed Todd said that he saw lightning in the room. As you know, Todd’s visit was preceded by a prophetic word that he would come with thunder and lightning as well as one of the biggest thunder and lightning storms we have seen lasting five days. When Todd called out that he saw lightning again our Associate pastor/prophet Terry Spencer had just taken the photo to your right. It’s time for everyone to get to the Reno Outpouring. Get here however you can.

BAM x 24

Since there was no official medical documentation presented for the miracles claimed during Todd Bentley’s Florida outpouring (as Nightline’s expose revealed), we must ask – is there any medical documentation follow up for this energetic episode where Todd Bentley BAM’s this woman 24x?

Watch the hype here:

Hip Healed
During a recent outpouring meeting…

http://www.morningstarministries.org/Publisher/Article.aspx?ID=1000064354

Todd Bentley: “DO IT JESUS! A BRAND…NEW…HIP! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM!”

…pause…

“Why do I do that I don’t know but when power flows that comes out of my mouth.”

“But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man.” Matthew 15:18

It sounds like there is a lot of BAM in this man’s heart. Todd Bentley doesn’t seem to know why he says it, but he likes to say it quite loudly, and 24 times in a row. So what exactly does he mean by saying BAM? And what is the definition of this word BAM? The following definitions may give us a clue, and are taken from various dictionary sources:

BAM:
-used to suggest the sound of a sudden, hard impact
-to strike with a hard impact
-a pejorative term for a Woman Marine, reportedly meaning broad a__ed Marine. Never used much in the presence of female Marines out of fear of bodily harm. Women Marine recruits in the 1960s, when it was most used, were taught that the letters meant “Beautiful American Marine”. Known to have been used as early as World War II.
-an ancient city in southeastern Iran; destroyed by an earthquake in 2003, a theocratic Islamic republic in the Middle East in western Asia; Iran was the core of the ancient empire that was known as Persia until 1935; rich in oil
-sound of any kind (especially unintelligible or dissonant sound)

BAM Acronyms:
-By All Means
-Bacteriological Analytical Manual
-Basilar Artery Migraine
-Berkeley Art Museum

So, Mr. Bentley. Which BAM is it? What is the point of repeating it so often? And have you really changed, repented or been humbled before our Holy God at all?
