Contagious Florida Fire Spreads to Belfast
Is this how the church is supposed to function? Read how Bobby Sullivan, partner of Todd Bentley, has been helping to spread the contagious Florida outpouring anointing to Belfast, Ireland, where sheep are flocking to be healed.
‘Is this the healing hand of God?’
June 21 2008
FOLLOWING reports of a boy coming back from the dead, News Letter reporter Sam McBride visted the church where, for five weeks, people have been flocking to be healed.
Within minutes of arriving at the Elim Christian Centre in Tigers Bay, the young man beside me is moving his body in a series of bizarre, jerking movements.

How can this be of God when no where in the Bible is God’s healing hand displayed in this manner? This unedifying behaviour is definitely NOT how the body of Christ functions.
23Therefore if the whole church assembles together and all speak in tongues, and ungifted men or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are mad?
24But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an ungifted man enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all;
25the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will fall on his face and worship God, declaring that God is certainly among you.
26What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation Let all things be done for edification.
