keeping a watchful eye on the wolves

Sheep Talk

This March Todd Bentley was in New Zealand when a pastor named Rob Deluca prophesied that revival was going to break out in Florida. A few weeks later Todd Bentley was in ‘Ignited Church’ in Lakeland Florida. What was to be a five day meeting turned into 4 weeks, two services a day, 7 days a week…and more. They outgrew the building and moved to a larger facility. They soon filled the Lakeland Convention Center, which seats 8,000 people. This weekend they are moving into Joker Marchant Tiger Stadium (no joking) where Todd says he will lay hands on “every single person.”

There are more wolf tracks showing up on the way to the Joker’s Stadium in Florida than just Todd Bentley’s. Watch the following video clip and see if you can spot the wolves amidst the sheep talk.

Scenes from this video clip:

After the altar call was over, the meeting carried on in the usual fashion. Todd Bentley announced that there were angels in the arena that were going to move the outpouring. He said to look for signs, and that more creative miracles were going to hit the building.

Then Rob Deluca, the pastor from New Zealand who prophesied this revival, stepped up to the microphone. He has (temporarily) left his flock so that he could join Todd Bentley in Florida, in order to share his latest prophecy. He says that what took place with Rodney Howard Browne will take place here, and that in a vision he saw CNN covering the conference, Bentley says, “Come Lord Jesus on CNN!

Pastor Deluca continues with his new revelation that five days ago the Lord showed him. This is more or less how it went from there:

Rob Deluca: The Lord spoke to me, woke me up early in the morning, and he said, “What’s taken place in the last hundred years is now here… what took pace in Azusa Street concerning my fire is now here, masses of souls will be saved… what took place with the voices of healing with Branham is now here… what took place with Kathryn Kuhlman and Smith Wigglesworth is now here…what took place in the 90’s concerning the river is now here…a culmination of the anointing of these revivals is here now…I have desired to do this for the last century and I will do it now!”

Todd Bentley: “We want it now, we want it now!”

Rob Deluca: “I saw an explosion over Florida that hits satellites and bounces over communications all over the earth, crowds of people sitting around TV’s receiving an impartation. “

*Sheep Note: This is all very much the same as the vision Todd Bentley’s friend, Paul Cain had, which you can listen to here:
http://www.propheticmedia.net/FreeMP3/PrayerForTheHarvestPaulCain.mp3

Rob Deluca goes on about how his church got the impartation through the TV while watching the Florida outpouring. Then Todd cuts in with something about the satellite beam that goes all the way to Jerusalem…the beam has to go up from Jerusalem and then through the entire earth, from Mt. Zion.
He also said that when spirit comes into the room, we need to activate it…then prays for signs miracles and wonders to be released and invade the rooms where the TV’s are.

Rob Deluca continues with what the Lord told him:
“I saw the explosion, fire of heaven went throughout the earth, and a star in brightness lit up over southern California…I saw an angel standing in southern California with fire coming out of his hands…this is the angel that brings my fire, God says, the fire of my presence.” (Todd interrupts and says with confidence that it’s the Angel of Liberty). “God says this angel is preparing for what is about to happen in California…masses of people in Hollywood will turn their faces toward the fire.”

Todd says Hollywood celebrities should come and get prayed for by him, he could lay hands on them in private, and great miracles will break out among the celebrities.

Then Rob Deluca continues with his vision account, and how he saw the fire go over the Pacific ocean, and diminished and turned back to Asia, as people jumped on planes and came to the fire, and came back and took it to their lands.

Todd says this is a Holy Ghost infection, and that Bob Jones told him this “portal” that is now open will never close.

Then Rob says he saw the children coming and being anointed and armed with supernatural power for signs and wonders and prophetic power never seen before in the history of man (this is at about 50 minutes).

Todd says he feels a “spirit of creation”…”they are creating with words, creating an atmosphere with words”…and then…

Todd: “It’s here, it’s here!”

Rob: “The fifth great awakening in America, it’s here now, the healings, the miracles, it’s here now!”

Todd: “Can you feel the atmosphere? It’s becoming electric in the Holy Ghost!”

Rob says the Spirit showed him a man walk up to Todd and give him a building for this land, an apostolic center, and quoted 2 Kings 4:1-6 (the story of the woman and 2 sons, and the empty vessels that were filled). He said (TO THE CAMERA) “Every person hungry for revival MUST come to this revival and be filled, I call you forth, be filled with the glory and bring it back to where you came from, because it is a world wide revival!” (Or is it a TV/Internet induced revival? Is this a move of God or a God TV campaign?)

Todd: “It’s in the air”…“we want it”… “We want IT…take the fire, there’s impartation, there’s mantles of healing, there’s mantles of glory!”

Shortly after saying in a softer voice that you can not be in this kind of glory and not have something happen to your body, a lady who works for Todd Bentley walks on stage saying the tumours in her body are gone, she can’t feel them anymore. AND she is holding a cell phone and says she just got a call from CNN…CNN is on hold! Todd shouts that he is ready for CNN, “I’m ready Larry King!” He then pushed the lady over and says, “Call CNN back!!!”

More of the usual unusual phenoma ensues:
1:21 lady manifesting symptoms of demonic possession
1:22:44 Todd says he can feel the power of God in his spine right now
1:35 another lady who appears to be demon possessed (this is scary)
2:03 Todd says he saw a vision of Oral Roberts sitting in a tent on a chair praying one by one by one for the sick, and a great anointing is going to come on everyone
2:05 after Todd prays for a healthy looking woman who tells him she is about to die any moment, he says, “Did you hear that? She could die at any moment…these are serious conditions!”

*Sheep Note: We could all die at any moment….false representation of the Holy Spirit is a serious condition.

This “revival” video is far worse and more sickening than any Benny Hinn healing crusade I have ever witnessed. At least Benny Hinn doesn’t haul up dying cancer patients who are on oxygen and push them over. There are more partial healings with still a “little bit of pain” that have to be “finished,” than alleged miracles. When Jesus and his disciples healed the sick, it was instant, and it was complete.

Is all this “sheep” talk simply creating an atmosphere with words that psych people up for a false revival? Is this how shepherds feed their sheep with God’s word, or would this be how wolves in sheeps clothing might be used to prepare the way for the anti-Christ? Talk is sheep, but there is always more behind the fluff. Don’t be a gullible sheep.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-10

    Though i don’t agree with such things as telling people that they must come, i also realize that it could have been said in his excitement. I will say this: at least 2 years ago there was a dream or vision that went forth that showed that revival was gonna start in Florida and spread like liquid fire….
    And another thing: if you are trying to prove something, you played the wrong video. The beginning of this video shows the humility of this brother as he cries out to God for repentance to come. His cry is a cry for more of God. I would think that it just might be possible for the enemy to get in there — and cause some deceptions during revival– i really don’t know. But as long as his heart is right before God as it seems to be– God can correct him. If anything may we pray for him rather than tear our brother down. This man is hungry for God– who can’t see that?

    Joyce,
    I too have noticed that many, many are quick to point a finger and condemn, when I believe the Lord would want us to pray for him to be set free and walk in the truth…so what’s worse a man who is hungry for God, but in error or a Christian who would point a finger of condemnation rather than pray…hmm, I guess we need to let God be the judge, huh?

    Joyce,

    Which verse in the Bible tells us that there is going to be a Holy Ghost revival in the last days?

    “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons” 1 Tim. 4:1

    The beginning of the video is a perfect example of how those who teach lies can also tell some truth.

    A hunger for God? Or an unbalanced hunger for a Holy Spirit experience, personal revelations and angelic visitations that take precedence over the Word of God.

    Joyce and Lisa,

    Pray for him? Indeed. That is all we can do.

    Yes, God judges the heart, but we are to judge, test and weigh every teaching we are taught with God’s written Word.

    Use discernment, sheep.

    the Word also says that Satan disguises himself as light and he is after the hungry ones as they are more vulnerable. It says that in latter days false prophets will coem and believers in Christ will be deceived and follow the false prophet. how much of this is God and how much is flesh…emotions can get in way when we are so hungry. God help us all.

    I do believe I am using discernment…notice that my comment also alluded to praying for him to be set free! I believe the guy is in need of deliverance as well as correction and sound doctrinal teaching from men of God who the Lord will lead to come and help him out of his error.

    In the last several weeks, sadly, however, all over the internet I have read comments from Christians that are downright nasty and mean. Comments that mention nothing about redemption or prayer. Yes, I believe this man is deceived, yes I believe he doesn’t need to be preaching the things he’s preaching, yes I am very concerned about the people who are listening to him and attending the meetings…no, I do not believe he is aware of his error (that’s a part of what error is, they don’t know). My sincerest prayer is that, now that this is getting the attention of people outside of his normal circle, and he is now around others besides his mentors (Patricia King, etc)hopefully other men and women of God will see his error, pray and seek the Lord, and help Him walk in Truth…
    Oh, and no, I have no intentions of letting that guy lay hands on me!

    Joel 2:28-32
    28 “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. 29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. 30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. 32 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the Lord has said, Among the remnant whom the Lord calls.

    Those you are ripping to shreads are simply men, who have paid the price and have been chosen by God to carry this move of God. Pastor Rob says over and over again that he is only where he is by the grace and mercy of God. He is just a man who God is using, He is not perfect and does not claim to be. Born from rape and addicted to drugs at 9years he got saved as a homeless person living in a box, His life is a testimony of Gods restorationa and mercy. You can tell this is a legitimate move of God by the fruit, the slavation of the lost, the demons being cast out, the miraculous mircales that JESUS does because he loves us and manifestation of the Holy Spirit if you compare to the works that Jesus did it all seems pretty similar and is you read Acts 2 its all there.

    Mark 16:
    14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they F86 will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

    Acts2:
    1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord* in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    John 1:
    49 Nathan’a-el answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” 50 Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these.” 51 And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

    Acts2:
    12 So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?” 13 Others mocking said, “They are full of new wine.”
    14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. 15 For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. 21 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’ F7 22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know–

    I pray with my whole heart that God will touch you with His love and consume you with his mercy and truth, i pray for an increase in intimacy with the Father, and for total freedom and blessings to be on you In Jesus name.

    Lastnight Todd read a personal account from William Branham’s friend. Todd believes and has said that William Branham’s angel Emma has now anointed his ministry and follows him around, appearing to him. Rob Deluca has now followed Todd Bentley, follower of Branham, to Florida.

    This is what William Branham taught:

    Branham’s bizarre “Serpent Seed” teaching:
    This was based on a twisted interpretation of Genesis 3:13, where Eve is recorded as saying, “The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.” The word “beguiled” Branham defined as “seduced sexually.” He claimed that Satan and Eve engaged in an adulterous affair out of which Cain was born. Since that time evil has passed from generation to generation through women, who keep the seed of the serpent alive. He seemed to think that women are responsible for the evil in the world because of their enticements.

    The “Serpent’s Seed” teaching obviously indicated that Branham didn’t take the Scriptures literally, where we read, “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived and bare Cain…” (Genesis 4:1).

    His animosity toward women led to the preaching of a rigid moral code that lambasted them on their manner of dress, and may have been responsible for his “revelation” that allowed for divorce…

    Branham also believed that the Word of God was given in three forms: the Zodiac, the Egyptian pyramids, and the written Scriptures. The Zodiac theory was not new, having been put forth by Franklin Hall previously, and as early as 1893 by historian E.W. Bullinger in his book, ‘The Witness of the Stars.’ The idea that the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt was constructed by God (possibly through Enoch) is at least as old as the Zodiac theory, and is popular with the Dawn Bible Students, an offshoot of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    I pray that the veiled eyes of many will be opened to the truth before the weekend is over. However, God gives the people over to what they ask for when they reject His truth. They want signs and wonders…so this is what they shall get. A delusion. This is only the beginning. Pray for wisdom before it is too late, and receive a love for the truth.

    Be wise sheep. Listen to the voice of the Shepherd.

    There was a comment mentioned that Pastor Rob DeLuca has left his flock to follow Todd. That is far from the truth, Pastor Rob travelled to Florida to follow Gods glory. Not the vessel (Todd) but the One using the vessel.

    I am a member of His Way Church International and have been one for the last three years. I have seen God move in our church like I have never sen before. I have seen Rob, the man, and have come to know and appreciate a man who practices what he preaches. I have been taught by this man to live a life of holiness, as holy and righteous as I can UNDER grace. Not by my works, but by a love for my King that causes me not to want to sin – this is true repentance. I have totally been changed by God and have been ministered to by this man of God that, my Pastor, and have been taught SO well. I am a fruit of his ministry and the accuracy of the Prophetic office he holds. Pastor Rob has not left his flock unattended, he has left us well equip to shepherd the church in his absence. PEOPLE are still getting saved, people are being miraculously healed by the power of God, people are being set free from bondage. People are chasing after GOD and his purity like never before.

    Todd must be doing something right for my Pastor to get on a plane and chase after the anointing and the outpouring like he has….

    Do not disdain it, especially if you are holed up in a room on your PC or MAC writing your self righteous apostasy without having been a part of it. You remind me of a Pharisee or Sadducee or someone who cant see..

    SEE!!
