Todd Bentley’s Ministry: Fortune Telling at the Flea Market
Here is the latest news:
One, two, many Lakelands
An e-mail from Tood Bentley’s ministry on Friday, as he continues to tour the USA, predicts “revivals” in 12 American cities.
Would that it were so, but I hear the Church Lady character from Saturday Night Live saying “How conveeeenient.”
I’ll reproduce the full e-mail as the first comment, as I see that FreshFireUSA scrubs and deletes regularly. It is here.
Here are some things that stand out to me….
The men of the Bible always fell down when they saw the glory of the Lord. Even the angels fall down before Him.
-Abraham fell on his face before God
-Moses and Aaron fell on their faces in the presence of all the assembly of the congregation and before God
-Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down
-Ezekiel, and Daniel fell on their faces
-Isaiah said “Woe is me, for I am ruined!Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips;For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”
-Simon Peter fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!”
-the disciples fell face down to the ground and were terrified
-the leper fell on his face at the feet of Jesus
-the angels who were standing around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, all fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God
In the Bible we never read about anyone who saw God’s glory and said “BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! HO! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! HEY! HEY! HEY! TAKE IT! TAKE! TAKE IT!” As well, we never read that they fell on their backs and laughed while in God’s glory.
Instead, they recognized the glory and holiness of the Lord. They didn’t blabber on about “it” and tell everyone that they felt “it,” and to come and “get some.” They didn’t command God to release His glory. They didn’t draw attention to themselves for having seen God’s glory, or make money from His glory. They just fell down on their faces before God, exposed, terrified. When they saw His glory, they knew their wretchedness, and they worshiped Him. Even the angels do not take God’s glory, but give it back to Him. Except for the fallen ones.
Wolves in sheeps clothing take glory in themselves. They even give glory to angels. Wolves have no fear of God, and they don’t fall on their faces before the Lamb of God. But they will, soon enough. The Lord has said it, and it will come to pass.
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Matthew 7: 22,23
A PRAYER ON BEHALF OF THE SHEEP
Lord Jesus, on behalf of your flock, hear our prayer. We repent for not bowing down before you! We have made idols of signs, wonders, gifts, feelings, and experiences, while following men, not You! Forgive us Lord, cleanse our hearts, and send true revival! We bow down and confess, we fall face down before You, the Lamb of God. Only you are worthy to be praised!
We bow down and confess
Give Us Clean Hands
Lord, soften their hearts, open their eyes. Send your Spirit to convict them, for your Name’s sake. Amen.
I’m done now, it’s time to go…

IT’S ABOUT TIME!!!!
Todd Bentley’s time has come, the handwriting is on the wall.
Those who confront wolves in sheeps clothing are very bold and must be commended. These wolves are often protected by their pack, making this no small matter. Here is the brand new blog of Todd Bentley’s confronters…
WHO WE ARE, WHY WE WENT, WITH VIDEO
A brief explanation:
We are followers of our Lord Jesus. In our group were pastors, evangelists, street preachers, husbands, wives, businessmen, children, grandchildren, etc. We went to confront the blatant, public sin and deception being foisted upon Charismatic/Pentecostal segments of the church of Jesus in particular. We all work together with an organization called Operation Save America. Learn more about OSA here: operationsaveamerica.org
OSA was having its annual leadership conference here in Charlotte and it just so happens that it is the same time Todd Bentley was having his conference. Knowing many months ago that Bentley and Morningstar were going to hatch this fake restoration scheme, I was burdened of the Lord to go and confront them whenever they decided to put Todd back up there. I did not know when this would be. I spoke with Flip Benham, the National Director of OSA and he agreed we would take a group and go. Little did we know that the Lord would work it out so that Todd and Morningstar, the false prophetic, would be confronted by those who have lived and walked in the true prophetic life and ministry….

Come on sheep, don’t fall for the old ‘one-hundred-year-old prophecy’ trick…
“In 1910, William Seymour, of Azusa Street Mission fame, prophesied that in 100 years a worldwide revival would sweep the earth. According to that prophecy, there would be an outpouring of the Shekinah Glory of God that would surpass even the Azusa Street revival.
Rick Joyner knows this….”

Todd Bentley: God Bless Those Who Persecute Us
Over at Todd Bentley’s Twitter page he left this tweet:
Thanks for the Love. God is blessing his people. Tonite the presence was so sweet and God bless those who persecute us
Note: By now you’ve heard that Bentley’s service at MorningStar was interrupted last night by some people who decided to go and confront Bentley in his adultery and false doctrine. A bit of a fracas broke out when they began shouting during the offering, and the police were called to escort them out. Is that a tactic I would have chosen myself? No, perhaps not. but it’s making for good blogging press today. It also gives Bentley a bit of a persecution complex. More on this as it continues to break. But for now, let’s move along to the matter at hand…
The alert sheep got wind of the danger a few weeks ago, when the wolf pack began howling in the distance, announcing their approach. Now I must climb back up on the wall, even if for a brief moment, and sound the warning to the flock.
THE WOLF WILL BE BACK!
Listen to Rick Joyner say that Todd Bentley is gonna be back, bigger than ever, better than ever! He has no doubt of this. Watch it and weep!
Rick Joyner manipulation
Rick Joyner also said this recently at the beginning of his restoration series ‘teaching’ videos. See for yourself by clicking on the video by Rick Joyner called The Restoration Begins Video Update @ http://www.morningstarministries.org.
If you you are a sensitive sheep and do not have the second or third stomach to watch this video, here are a few quotes that should be alarming enough to make you cough up your cud:
“He will be back.” – Rick Joyner
“He could be out in public ministry again probably, have pretty big crowds again…” –Rick Joyner
(*Note that he says that’s not what the videos are about, of course, they are to ‘help’ people.)
“The one group of people that the Lord had no patience for was the self righteous…” –Rick Joyner
(*Note that these restoration videos are only for the gullible sheeple.)
And what is this video series about?
They say they are going to be telling all the sordid details, weekly…
“We’re gonna really try to tell the story as frankly and as openly as we possibly can, for your sake, not just, you know, to rebuild Todd’s ministry, that will happen. We know that. He will be back. And I believe better than ever, and uh, has an important part to play but we’re doing this for the sake of openness and helping people.” –Rick Joyner
* * * * * *
Do what you want with this warning, but the questions remain…
Will Todd Bentley return with or without his angel? Has Emma left the building? And will there be more creative hoaxes miracles like the ones we have seen in the past? Will the lame grow their leg stumps another inch walk? Will the blind notice light shadows see through glass eye balls healed eyes? Will the dead be raised shouting glory to Todd God? Will old ladies be kicked in the face blessed and ministered to, cancer patients kicked in the gut prayed for?

2010 UPDATE from Take Heed Ministries
False prophet Todd Bentley is back at it again
The Elijah list may sell their prophecies but you can get your FREE prophecies here:
The Elisha list:
“Somethin’s happenin’, somethin’s happenin’…let your toes grow back from frostbite”…“People are growing fingers”…“I command you to grow arms and legs” – Todd Bentley
QUESTION: Is this true or false? Have anyone’s toes actually grown back from frost bite? Is God really growing fingers and toes, arms and legs now? Are missing body parts growing back?
That is what Todd Bentley says in this video:
Arms and legs aside, let’s take the smallest example: fingers. Are there any people out there who have documented medical evidence, pictures, videos, witnesses of their brand new creatively grown fingers (or toes and missing body parts)? If so, please show us. We would love to see the before and after testimonial pictures (slow motion video of the growth would be even better). (Note: Half an inch of growth on amputated leg stubs does not count.)
If there are no people coming forward with such evidence of even a new pinky finger tip, this will mean that Todd Bentley is not telling the truth.
Remember, Todd Bentley said: “People ARE growing fingers.” It is no small claim to say (in front of thousands of people, on live TV, who are devouring your every word) that people ARE growing fingers. A prophet of the Lord who is working in his “gifting” under the “anointing” cannot backtrack and simply say it was a “mistake.” Perhaps someone should challenge him on this statement, and others like it. This is serious business! If the information a prophet receives and speaks is FALSE, then either the spirit speaking through that prophet is a LYING spirit, or the prophet has made it up (lied). Therefore, it is only logical that Todd Bentley is either:
a) telling the truth (and speaking God’s truth)
b) not telling the truth (lying)
Let us not be mindless gullible sheep, but let us use reason and logic in these situations that play prey on human emotions, desires, longings and feelings.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD… ( Isaiah 1:18 )
To help the flock think through situations like these, Living in the Way has recently started a new feature of biblical reasoning and discerning of miracles called…
U-JUDGE-IT – Are these true miracles?
It has been brought to my attention that Todd actually did say, “People are growing fingers and toes” at 2:48 on the video clip. So come on, we want those pictures…fingers AND toes!
Just because pastors and Christians who have been there SAY there is nothing unbiblical or unscriptural at this revival, does that mean there is nothing unbiblical or unscriptural at this revival?
Listen to this MP3 of the deceived sheep being interviewed…
A list of supposed authentic revival healings from the Florida outpouring can also be found at Spirit Lessons here:
(Please be warned, the above website is a deadly mixture of truth and error and bad discernment, but it shows the kind of backing that Todd Bentley has.)
Perhaps the problem with these sincerely deceived people is that they went to see it to get some, when Jesus said, do not go there. Oh sheep, don’t go – and if you already have, run back to the Shepherd!!!
Please take some time and listen to the warning in this timely message that is posted at Sola Dei Gloria called The End Times Outpouring of Antichrist:
Jesus warned about this revival and others like it…
And He said, “See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, ‘ I am He,’ and, ‘The time is near ‘ Do not go after them. Luke 21:8
“They will say to you, ‘Look there! Look here!’ Do not go away, and do not run after them.” Luke 17:23
“So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them. Matthew 24:26
So when they things like this: “on the 8th of June, Jesus says I am coming in person tomorrow night in the clouds in a chariot surrounded by the angelic host to visit the Lakeland revival, to set foot upon the stage in divine personal one to one visitation…in atmosphere, spiritual experience and the realm of the glory“…DO NOT GO!!!!!!!
If you have ever observed the tracks left behind by sheep, you would know that a sheep’s foot print looks very different than a wolf foot foot print. This is why wolves in sheeps clothing need to continually cover their tracks, otherwise the sheep will know that there are wolves among them in the sheep pen. Let’s take a look at some recent tracks that have been covered up on the disappearing trail…
We all heard about the disappearance of Todd Bentley’s references to his angel Emma, who became simply that “particular” angel as his story was changed (see Todd Bentley, Is he now ashamed of his angel Emma?).
But that is not the only thing that is being changed as Christian bloggers expose what is going on behind the scenes while wolves in sheeps clothing tip toe around in the sheep pen, trying to act like sheep.
The godtube video of Todd Bentley at The Secret Place in Abbotsford, B.C., as referred to in the post called
Following the Tracks (Part 2)- from Abbotsford to Lakeland and Around the World, has disappeared.
Here is another one. After being up for a long time, the youtube video of Mark Virkler teaching how to hear the voice of God through automatic writing/channelling (as recently referred to in a post called Todd Bentley Responds to Criticism) has suddenly disappeared. In the video, Virkler sat down and typed out a message on the spot from God for his interviewer in a cheap display of “hear God guaranteed” on demand, not unlike putting coins into a soda pop dispenser. This was an important video as Virkler’s spiritual advisor is Dr. Gary Greig, whose widely publicized endorsement Freshfire uses to legitimize Todd Bentley and the false Florida revival.
Then there’s the strange phenomena of shifting articles. Take for example the glory cloud revelation (Todd’s vision of Sundar Singh) as referred to in Todd Bentley and Contemplative Meditation.The link to this vision account disappeared. It was later discovered that it was simply changed on the Freshfire website shortly after many discernment blogs had linked to it.
Then there’s this one which deserves a longer explanation. A recent article on Wolf Tracks that got a lot of traffic and referals was called LECTIO DIVINA – Leading Sheep to a New Level of Consciousness. While I was writing this article, I copied and pasted the words from a page on the Youth Specialties website that was written by Mike Perschon. In the article, Pershon mentioned the four levels of consciousness achieved through practicing Lectio Divina.
This is what I wrote in the Lectio Divina article (the words in quotation marks were copied and pasted from Mike Perschon’s article, as were the four steps of consciousness, or so I thought):
Mike Perschon of Youth Specialties compares the four steps of Lectio Divina to “four levels of consciousness…which introduces you at each new level into a whole new world of reality” that occurs through the four levels of repetitious reading:
1- LITERAL LEVEL CONSCIOUSNESS
2- Moral level of consciousness
3- the Allegorical level which requires a Spiritual level of listening
4- We simply rest in the presence of the one who has used His word as a means of inviting us to accept His transforming embrace. We call this level, Union of Life or the unitive level of consciousness.
-An Experience of Lectio Divina
The reference to these steps can no longer be found as the Youth Specialties article is no longer there. All you will get if you click on the link now is the OOPS page. Nevertheless, whether it has disappeared or not, Mike Perschon himself commented on Wolf Tracks under my article on Lectio Divina and did not disagree with these steps or the practise of Lectio Divina. Here is what he said:
“I’d just like to clarify that I’ve been misquoted here. I didn’t write the website regarding the four steps. I was asked by Youth Specialties to do an introductory article on various contemplative practices, and I linked to certain pages I deemed to represent the practice well. I didn’t write it though. That said, I don’t disagree with it, and I would like to further clarify by saying that I do not espouse Lectio Divina as THE way to knowing Christ. As an academic and former pastor, I am devoted to studying the Bible within its contexts, and understanding it in a very rational way. But I find that Lectio Divina enlarges my experience of the Bible. It’s one of many tools I use in my walk with Christ. And I’m not suggesting it replaces grace, as some have supposed elsewhere.”
We would like to give Perschon the benefit of the doubt, but as it is interesting that while Perschon says he was misquoted, he admittedly does NOT disagree with these 4 levels of consciousness. It’s difficult to check back to read exactly what he said because the page is now blank, and the article that I used to pull his quote from has been shifted over. It has been moved, and given a new URL…
This is where it was:
This is where you can find it now:
Apparently missing from the article is the reference to the 4 levels of consciousness, however, the link to Cell of Peace remains. Perhaps I copied and pasted incorrectly? Could be. But then, how can this ever be proven? Is the moral of the story to copy/paste/save everything we find? Who has time for that?
The point of bringing these particular things to light is this. Why would Mike Perschon say he was misquoted, but also say that he agrees with the quote anyways? Is he feeling bad about leading youth to a new level consciousness instead of leading them to the truth? Is he sort of covering his tracks?
In another Youth Specialties article Mike Perschon wrote (here):
Morton Kelsey refers to the experience of contemplative prayer in all its forms as entering a “laboratory for the soul.” While this phrase entices me with its sense of adventure, it frightens most believers. For too long, evangelical Christianity has packaged faith in safe bundles.
I’m sorry Mike Perschon, but the reason this “frightens” most believers is that this is not of God, and the only “safe” place to be is under the shelter of His wings. He is our strong tower. This is why we must stay away from practices that might open our minds up to the darkness of the spirit realm and doctrines of demons, but you are leading youth away from God, in this mad laboratory experiment devised by Satan, and into darkness.
In conclusion, there will surely be more covered tracks as the delusion unfolds and sticky web of apostasy is woven. In the meantime, some might say, why bother with all this, let’s just read God’s Word and stick to the truth. While this is very VERY good advice, and I totally agree, God’s Word also instructs us to reprove and expose what is in the darkness.
11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Bud Press of Christian Research Service has just come out with a new article that examines Wendy Alec of God TV, sponsor and promoter of the Florida outpouring:
This is well worth the read.
Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21
Is the next wave going to sweep the sheep into the ecumenical sea?
THE NEXT WAVE OF THE SPIRIT
by Roger Oakland
J. Lee Grady writes articles for Charisma magazine. In an article titled “Do it Again, Lord” posted in the June, 2005 issue, Grady wrote about a “vivid dream” he had in which he found himself inside the Vatican. As he peered out a window he saw a giant wave headed towards the headquarters of the Catholic Church in Rome.
Here’s how Grady described what he saw in his dream…

Did Jesus show up at Lakeland lastnight?
This was the prophecy:
June 8th prediction by Wendy Alec of God TV as read by Todd Bentley (3 minutes):
(As some sheeple cheer and clap, others looks stunned, as Todd reads the prophecy that Jesus is coming in person…a personal divine visitation in Lakeland, in the clouds in a chariot – but then Todd explains it away. Sort of. What kind of prophecy is this? Did anyone see Jesus in Lakeland lastnight?)
The defenders of Todd Bentley are saying ‘don’t judge him, just pray for him.” Meanwhile, Todd Bentley and friends continue to mock the Lord with false prophecies while the hungry sheep eat every word he gives them.
When Jesus comes every eye WILL see Him. But in the meantime, He has told us this beforehand:
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.
“Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. Matthew 24:23-26

Tracking the outpouring…from Oregon to the world and back to Oregon again. Let’s follow the blazing trail…
“Todd was with us in Albany, Oregon, and sparked a healing visitation that spanned from July of 1999 to June of 2000. There were hundreds of healings, miracles and salvations during that year timeframe. I lamented that we ran out of gas and were unable to sustain it. There have been hundreds already in just three weeks in Lakeland. But the Lord spoke to me in an elders meeting the next year that He would come again with another outpouring and it would be ten times greater than before.”
Denny Cline, Senior Leader
Albany Vineyard Christian Fellowship
John Arnott writes to Todd Bentley:
Todd, you need to keep going in these meetings as long as the Lord is moving. I feel that this is a prophetic sign that another wave of revival is coming to North America.
If you remember, the laughing revival was released in Lakeland via Rodney Howard Browne. Randy Clark went to one of Rodney’s meetings in November 2003 in Tulsa, and came to Toronto in January of 2004, and it all broke out here.
So, the meetings starting again in Lakeland could mean that revival gets another fresh start all over the world!
John Arnott, Founding Pastor
Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship
“…one of his (Todd’s) most profound outbreaks of healing and revival broke out right here in Albany, Oregon, in our much smaller fellowship (back then) in 1999-2000.
[...] If you’re looking for a place where the prophets always go, come to Albany, Oregon. [...]This is just me, but I fully expect Todd to come back here to Albany, Oregon before long, as he’s been here many times already. But don’t wait for Todd. We’ve had a lot of healing here, even without Todd Bentley.

The ElijahList & ElijahRain magazine

The trail blazing continues…
“I saw a human boomerang flying out of Canada and it hit the nation of England, it hit the nation of Australia, it hit the nation of New Zealand, and it came spinning around.
I saw “Todd Bentley”–your name on the boomerang, but I knew that it was the Lord showing me that it was you, and I saw it fly back around and it came and hit America.”
-Pastor Rob DeLuca
His Way Church in New Zealand
“The main reason I’m writing is to E-Blast this to all 136,000+ of you on THE ELIJAHLIST that the Healing Revival has officially returned here to Albany, Oregon–where it broke out in a huge way with Todd Bentley way back in 1999 and 2000. Many of you know (but some don’t) that THE ELIJAHLIST is also located in Albany.
My own pastor Denny Cline has gone to Lakeland, Florida three times in the last six weeks to Todd’s meetings, and believe me when I tell you–he’s truly brought the anointing back with him from Lakeland. “
“I saw a vision of this whirlwind of fire–trailblazing across Oregon, and it was burning up forest trees and the fire was spreading and it was getting larger and larger and it began to consume towns and cities–all across the State of Oregon… The wind is blowing and the fire is burning and watch out Oregon, here it comes!”

And Now as predicted by Bob Jones, Rob DeLuca & Todd Bentley…The Oregon Outpouring!

According to last night’s revival report:
Day 38 May 9th
LIVE ON GOD TV AROUND THE WORLD!!!
Over 200 nations can see this broadcast.
The FLORIDA HEALING OUTPOURING
Friday night report!
Todd shares… on the morning of Mothers Day 1998… Todd had a visitation of the Holy Spirit. For over three months the power of God touched him. But on Mothers Day, the Lord Himself appeared to him.
Every year to this date, the Holy Spirit has visited him in a special way on or near Mothers Day. He is expecting God to speak to him this weekend and he will share it Sunday night – Mothers Day.
SUNDAY NIGHT WILL BE A TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY
CELEBRATION OF TODD’S MINISTRY
Does Mr. Bentley think he is living in the Old Testament? Does the Bible teach that the Holy Spirit will “visit” a Christian once a year in a special way? Or does it teach that, since Jesus’ death, resurrection and ascension, believers are indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit the moment they are born again?
This older entry (’05) at Freshfire confirms Todd’s track record of Mother’s Day “visitation” claims:
Todd explained that he’s seeing an increase in the number of healing miracles that are taking place in various ministries around the world. He referred to Acts 5:12-15 and told us about the period from March to May 1998 when he spent hours every day with God during a period of recuperation from an industrial accident. On Mother’s Day in May of that year he had a visitation of Jesus who commissioned him to begin his full time ministry. Since then he’s seen over half a million souls saved and is looking for the first million. On Mother’s Day of this year, 2005, seven years after the sending forth, Todd had another encounter with Jesus. This time Todd was told that he’d receive a kingly anointing and he’s already noticed a marked difference in his healing ministry. Despite seven years of successful healing, God has made Todd understand that the healing ministry is really beginning as of Mother’s Day this year. Todd said that he has seen an angel called “Healing Revival” over 30 times and there’s much more revival coming.
For those who are awaiting a special message from the spirit that appears to Todd Bentley every Mother’s Day, PLEASE read the warnings on the posts and links on this blog! Be forewarned – test the spirits! Be watching, and beware.
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” 1 Timothy 4:1
As some of you may have noticed, Mother’s Day this year falls on the same day as Pentecost. As Todd Bentley is expecting a visitation tomorrow from the “jesus” or “spirit” that has appeared to him every Mother’s Day for the last ten years, be on the alert! The familiar spirits that have been manifesting themselves during this revival may be using tomorrow as a counterfeit Pentecost!
“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” 2 Cor. 2:11

But…what we are REALLY watching for is the fulfillment of THE prophecy:
In his famous prophetic word spoken over Todd Bentley and the nations (see here and here) on March 8 at the “Downpour Conference” on the Gold Coast in Australia, Rob DeLuca from New Zealand said this:
“Todd, I saw a vision…
I see something BIG in Florida (…)
In Jesus name, what’s happened…I really believe what happened–it’s even going to hit CNN, it’s going to hit news broadcasts, it’s going to be talked about all over America. There’s something brewing so big and so strong that it’s going to waste the nation with God’s glory, definitely, in Jesus name.”
As Rob Deluca himself has said, a true prophecy will come to pass. On another video that can be watched here, (at 1:13:39) Rob Deluca says the following:
“You know what I love about the prophetic? When the true prophetic comes, you can mark the words of God, that it will come to pass….I like hearing the prophetic that make your ears spin and burn…I want to see some prophets that rise up who can tell you what your name is, what your address is, who your mother is what kind of car you drive…where it becomes scary in a good way. Now I’m thankful that we are receiving direction from the prophets, concerning the winds of change, concerning the shift”…”
Deluca’s CNN prophecy soon spread like the telephone game. It wasn’t long before others were talking about the coming CNN coverage…and NBC as well:

Great Florida Healing Revival Update
I just had to give another update and made sure you knew that Todd Bentley was coming to California. There are a number of helpful links below. Forward this to your friends.
The revival began just four weeks ago at the Ignited Church, Lakeland, Florida
People continue to come from all over the world. The secular media including CNN and NBC are coming to report this event. The program is being carried on God TV around the world with millions of potential viewers.”
***Florida revival attracting national attention
“On Tuesday afternoon, Bentley’s staff talked excitedly about inquiries from NBC and CNN. They said there is interest in the revival from someone affiliated with Benny Hinn, the Christian televangelist and faith healer who was born in Israel to Palestinian-Armenian parents and became a Christian as an adult.”

Lakeland Florida Outpouring – The Remnant International

“Bentley said last night that CNN and the NBC television networks had called him for an interview. This event has moved fast like a wildfire with a blowing wind. The swelling of this event could reach magnitude levels by Saturday to fill a stadium.”
During one of the revival meetings last week, a woman who works for Bentley told him that she had CNN on hold on her cell phone to which he shouted that he was ready for CNN, “I’m ready Larry King, I’m ready Anderson Cooper!”
Even false prophet Paul Cain got in on the CNN prophecy, being flown out (ticket purchased by Bentley) to share his vision of a stage full of people on stretchers and signs and wonders…and CNN was there, covering it all live.
So…WHERE IS CNN?
While CBN reported that “550,000 different computers have logged into the webcast” (but who knows how many are watching for entertainment or research?), it remains to be seen whether CNN will be covering the revival. But who knows? Maybe they are working on a detailed expose, like the one on Benny Hinn (The Fifth Estate, Do You Believe In Miracles?), who also has a long record of false prophecies.
But so far, if you type Todd Bentley into CNN’s search engine, all you get is ‘NO RESULTS’ and a website called Prophecy News Watch (which has plenty of articles on prophecy – not on the greater glory or the false anointing, but on the serious trouble America is headed into).
This week, over 100,000 people died in Myanmar in a typhoon, twisters tore up 4 states, and the price of oil continued to rise. And while the church falls away faster than the US dollar, a so called ‘anointed’ prophet wearing an expensive suit (tattoos don’t come cheap) is having a drunken Holy Ghost glory party, vibrating, grunting, crawling on stage, screaming Baaaaaaaaaaa, soaking in the “glory” and telling folks to come “get some” of the contagious anointing.
See for yourself…
At the moment, CNN seems to be more interested in reputable Christians and plausible end time prophecies – like Joel Rosenberg for example. (Watch that coverage here.)
Meanwhile, it looks like the “anointing” is running out of cash, and the big revival may no longer be broadcast. (Has Todd’s ‘Angel of Finance’ left the building? Where are those heavenly gems and gold dust sprinklings when you need them? Why should Patricia King find all the gold and gems?)
According to one blogger, Todd Bentley, in his newsletter today, is begging for money:
We have rescheduled all our programming, and are about to make some revolutionary decisions which will no doubt cost us more revenue, but we want to be OBEDIENT to the Spirit of the Lord. As many of you have guessed, we have NO BUDGET to broadcast this outpouring. It was not in OUR plans – oh but HOW it was in GODS PLANS FOR GOD TV!
We have gone out on a limb and are riding the wave with the Holy Spirit. This Sunday we run out of the money given to carry the revival live EVERY night, but our hearts AND YOUR hearts are all burning to keep the revival on air!
If its within your power [your power? I thought this outpouring was about God's power???] to sow into broadcasting this historic outpouring – and you are led by the Lord to do so – countless millions around the world will be eternally grateful – what can we say – things we know your heart already beats with – multitudes are already being DELIVERED, SET FREE, HEALED, RADICALLY SAVED AND SET AFLAME BY THESE BROADCASTS ALL ACROSS THE EARTH!
We need YOU… the Body of Christ needs YOU… the lost world needs YOU to ensure these live broadcasts keep going for the next 40 days!
