Following the Gold Trail
Thar’s gold in them thar revivals…
Gold is nothing new to Todd Bentley’s ministry. As we follow the tracks on the gold trail, the first gold report begins in his home province of British Columbia, Canada:
Gold Fillings: 1999
Gold teeth hard to prove, useful for outreach
• BC Christian News • MAY ISSUE 1999 • VOL. 19 #5 • Formerly “Christian Info News”
By Peter T. Chattaway
THE GREAT Physician may also be the Great Dentist. In the past two months, several dozen people have reported receiving gold fillings and similar miracles at churches and revival meetings throughout British Columbia.
“They were having people come up to be prayed for,” recalls Dorothy McKee, who says she received four gold teeth at the Mission Foursquare Church March 21. “My husband was checking people as they went up to the front, and he looked in my mouth, and voilˆ, I already had them.”
Dental miracles have been reported around the world, most recently in Argentina, at various times over the years. The first instance of miraculous fillings in Canada took place March 3 at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. Within a week, over 300 people claimed to have received dental miracles there.
It took only a couple of weeks for churches in Langley and Mission to follow suit. Nine people reported receiving dental miracles at the Langley Vineyard’s March 20 service; the next night, seven people reportedly received the same during Todd Bentley’s revival service at Mission Foursquare Church. And the reports keep coming in.
“We’ve had between 45 and 50 people who’ve reported some kind of dental miracles in their mouths,” says Langley Vineyard pastor Jesse Padgett. Of those, he estimates about 15 to 20 have gone to the dentist for confirmation.
Bentley, an Abbotsford-based evangelist, says the Mission meeting marked the first time gold teeth have appeared at any of his meetings. “Since then it’s appeared in almost every meeting that I’ve done,” he says, citing his recent trips to Mackenzie, Prince George and Portland, Oregon.
The Gold Trail continues…
Gold dust 2007:
SUPERNATURAL DISPLAY IN GROCERY STORE PARKING LOT
After shopping at a grocery store and prophesying accurately over the cashier, two of our interns began to put their groceries away into their vehicle when they sensed the Holy Spirit wanted them to minister to a woman in the parking lot. They began to tell her about the reality of the supernatural realm, about how they have seen gems from heaven, gold dust, diamond dust, and many other manifestations of the kingdom. Right then and there she started to get covered by it herself! Within a minute her whole body had oil, diamond dust, gold dust, sapphire dust, and silver dust coming on her, and within two minutes she was a sign and a wonder! She said she would be coming to their church the following Sunday!

Gold Teeth through the internet 2008:
God is now giving gold teeth to people through the internet. It’s a sign, says Todd.
Question: If God creates new eyeballs, back bones, neck bones and kidneys, as the people at Todd Bentley’s miracle crusades claim, then why wouldn’t he create new teeth? Why would the Creator of the universe need to use gold?
Meanwhile, as Todd Bentley’s contagious gold fever is spreading, so is the gold talk. Let’s follow the trail:
(HOT) Golden Living Stones 2008:
Prophetic word for Albany and Medford by Rob DeLuca
I had a vision of you while Todd Bentley was praying for you at the meetings in Lakeland, when we were up on the platform together.
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.
As I watched, I also saw that it began to pull “golden stones” (people) out of the ground–they were alive. As these came out of the ground, they swirled within this whirlwind of fire and they were full of life. I saw these golden stones begin to shine really bright and then they were flung out all over the nation of America. Hot, golden living stones.
The Lord is showing me that what is taking place with you and your ministry, Denny (based in Albany, Oregon), is going to set Oregon on fire.
The Lord is also showing me a city–Medford, Oregon. The reason I know of this city is because my parents used to live there. I also saw that this fire touched Medford in a great way. The wind is blowing and the fire is burning and watch out Oregon, here it comes! Many people will be sent out from Oregon–golden stones to touch the nation.
Let’s stay in touch. God bless you man.

Will gold dust and gold teeth be showing up in Oregon as the fever spreads? It’s already showing up in the Dudley outpouring. More gold on the trail here…

The Golden Earring Prophecy by Bob Jones
Golden earrings? Wait a minute. Isn’t that what the children of Israel used to make a molten gold calf? (Exodus 32)
The fact is that gold dust lust generally draws people away from God and leads them into sin (see Pentecostal ministers caught out faking word of knowledge prophecy & healing). And what of the 300 people who received Gold Teeth Miracles in Toronto? Did this turn the world upside down and bring revival? The apostles did not need to use gold or gimmicks as a means to spread the gospel (in fact Peter said, “Silver and gold have I none”).
Sadly, here is where the fools gold trail ends:
