Sheep flock from all over the world to be with the wolf
The following article appeared in Sunday’s Vancouver The Province newspaper (see here) about the “miracle mania” that has been attracting people from all over the world…
In search of a miracle
An Abbotsford preacher ignites a wave of miracle mania, drawing people from around the world and being broadcast into churches across Canada and the U.S.

The lineups often stretch down the street. Hundreds of people, waiting for a miracle.
Over the past 25 days, an Abbotsford preacher has drawn more than 30,000 people to the Ignited Church in Lakeland, Florida.
What Todd Bentley thought would be five days of healing sessions and preaching has exploded into a roaring revival, with people coming from all over the world to be part of it. […]
But the article also mentions this…
When The Province asked to speak to someone who had been healed through Bentley in either B.C. or Florida, Fresh Fire was unable to find someone at short notice, citing difficulties with outdated contact information locally, and record-keeping problems in Florida.
Is this a false healing revival? Read the following and decide for yourself:

It is very sad to see sheep from all over the world flocking to hear this wolf.
Here are two more excellent articles to help confused sheep discern wolves from shepherds:
And We All Fall Down By Ted Brooks
Ted Brooks is known for his insight into Charismatic circles for he himself was formerly a Charismatic/Word of Faith pastor who openly approved of and promoted Toronto Blessing and Pensacola Revival type manifestations in his church and ministry.
