keeping a watchful eye on the wolves

Stacy on Ecsatasy

There is a fascinating (and very disturbing) teaching by Stacy Campbell on Ecstatic Prophecy and Holy Spirit Possession that can be watched here:

SHATTER! Stacy Campbell – Holy Spirit Possession

Make sure you click on the 7 minute SHATTER! video on the left if you want to watch it. At 3 minutes into her teaching Stacy describes a Buddhist festival in Thailand where people (Buddhists) who wanted to worship would cross this little line, and when they walked into the middle of this square they were hit by an evil spirit and demon possessed on the spot – vibrating, falling towards the altar, giving an offering to the demon. This gave Stacy the ‘heeby jeebies.’
This is ASTOUNDING because there is a video you can watch of Todd Bentley where he instructs the people coming up on stage to stand in a certain spot which he points to where the anointing is the strongest. If they stood there, said Todd, they would ‘get it.’ This spot was close to the pulpit where he said there was a ‘portal’ of some sort. Sure enough, who ever stood there would get struck, start jerking, and fall over. IS THIS ANY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT STACY CAMPBELL DESCRIBED AS DEMONIC POSSESSION?

Here is the youtube video from the Florida outpouring (May 17th) where you can observe this phenomena (warning, please do NOT play this around children):

Drunk in God’s spirit
(the audio on this one is not very good, crank up the volume)

At 2 minutes, you will see a woman named Shannon standing in the anointing. Hear Todd saying that anybody that steps into it, gets it! At 2:55 the most evil laugh you have ever heard comes out of Todd. “Sometimes the angels get involved,” says Todd. (The angels who are involved in this are not the kind that everyone thinks.)

Back to the Holy Spirit Possession video of Stacey Campbell – using Vine’s dictionary and Bible verses to sound very biblical as she describes her version of ecsatasy, she teaches that biblical Holy Spirit possession and ecstatic prophecy means to be ‘standing outside of,’ in a trance, in a condition in which ordinary consciousness is suspended, a spiritual state where natural sense are suspended (as in Todd Bentley astral travelling to England?). But it is more than just floating in suspension – it is FRENZY, she says, not peaceful. Is this what the Bible teaches about life in the Spirit?

See what Stacy Campbell’s version of ecstatic prophecy looks like here:
Ecsatatic Prophecy Stacey Campbell ( 1:38 )

And who can forget her ecstatic head shaking prophecy over Todd Bentley last week? Does this sound or look like peace and self control, which is the fruit of the Holy Spirit?

There is something else very telling that Stacy Campbell mentions in her Holy Spirit Possession teaching – she talks about Evelyn Underhill at about 4:22. This is no small matter. Evelyn Underhill was a mystic who had occultic connections…

The Order of the Golden Dawn, a secret society headed by A.E.Waite, best known for the Waite Tarot Deck. Its members variously included poet W.B. Yeats (known for his poem, “The Second Coming”) and Evelyn Underhill, author of Mysticism.
-The Inklings (http://www.crossroad.to/Excerpts/books/lewis/inklings-williams.htm#Underhill)

Evelyn Underhill believed that mysticism was the highest form of human consciousness and defined Mysticism as ‘the art of union with reality.’ It is not surprising to see those in “Holy Spirit movements” quoting the mystics. As Alan Morrison writes, there is a connection between the two:

There has been a very interesting parallel between the development of mysticism in the professing Christian Church and the flourishing of Holy Spirit Movements throughout Church History.

While it is true to say that there is not an exact parallel between classical mysticism and specifically charismatic movements — in the sense that all mystics have not necessarily exhibited the charismata — there are many startling congruences which are worthy of exposure.

Pentecostalism and the Charismatic Movements are in so many ways a manifestation of the mysticism which has been developed in the Roman Catholic Church…

[…]

… the mystic monk Thomas Merton, who has done so much to develop the Interfaith Movement, could say — as reported in an article on renewal in the New Catholic Encyclopedia — ‘Pentecostalism seems to sum up the spirituality most likely to work in the U.S. now’. And in one of the Supplements to that same Encyclopedia, it is reported that there are three ways to Spiritual Perfection: 1) The Charismatic Way; 2) The Eastern Mystical Way; 3) The traditional Catholic Mystical Way (e.g. the Cloud of Unknowing).

– THE EVANGELICAL ATTRACTION TO MYSTICISM
By Alan Morrison
http://www.bereanbeacon.org/EvangelicalAttraction.html

When you hear that people in the signs and wonders/prophetic/charismatic movement have been studying and quoting from mystics who experienced ecstasy and strange experiences, look out!

Another one in this category who teaches in the ecstatic realm is Patricia King and her Ekstasis Worship. There was also a Spanish mystic from the past who experienced ecstasy – Saint Teresa Avila (1515-1582). Many Christians being drawn into contemplative spirituality in churches today are reading her classic writings on the Seven Mansions of the Interior Castle . Some say these are related to the Seven Chakras.

This is a serious matter. These ladies seem to draw a big audience, and appear quite angelic and sweet looking from afar, but so do (she)wolves in sheeps (ewe’s) clothing. I saw Stacy Campbell on a Christian TV program once when she was much younger and never thought that she would end up so far off the mark. Somewhere in her walk she stepped over the line and had her first taste of spiritual ecstasy and got addicted. Was it by studying the mystics? Now she is handing this toxic spiritual drug out to others. (Does that makes her an ecstasy dealer?) Has Stacy Campbell, in the name of the Holy Spirit, given herself over to the very thing that gave her the heeby jeebies watching in Thailand? What is this strange manifestation we see when in Lakeland as people are told by Todd Bentley to step over a line into a portal zone and shake and vibrate? What is this we see as Stacy Campbell prophesies over Todd Bentley in the name of Jesus – is this Holy Spirit possession, as she says? Or is this demon possession? Is this Holy Spirit revival in Florida about worshipping Jesus, or is it really about ecstatic frenzied demon worship in disguise?

It’s really time to wake up, sheep, and draw that line in the sand. And then, stay far away from “it”!!!

    JUDAS UNDER THE ANOINTING

    ——————————————————————————–

    And He called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons,and to heal diseases. And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God, and to perform healing. Mt. 9:1-2

    Have not I chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil? Jn. 6:70

    The importance of the Judas factor in Jesus’ ministry cannot be overstated. The corporate ministry of the Lord surrounded by the Twelve serves as a prophetic microcosm of what was to characterize the reality of ministry under the anointing throughout the ensuing church age. The role of Judas under that anointing is extremely instructive in today’s Spirit saturated atmosphere.

    Judas, as one of the Twelve, ministered under the same anointing under which Jesus ministered. In fact Jesus gave His anointing to him! And frankly, it just doesn’t get any more anointed than when you’re with the Son of God.

    In the course of their ministry, no one ever looked around and said, “How come Judas isn’t performing miracles?” His intrinsically impure heart had no bearing on Judas’ ability to live and function in the Presence of God. So invisible was his true nature that, in spite of the Lord’s repeated comments about a traitor in the midst, it was not until the very end that Judas was exposed for the son of perdition that he was. Even as late as the Last Supper, the disciples could not tell that their “brother” Judas was the traitor.

    The Anointing: Support System for a Message
    The Judas factor teaches us worlds about the anointing and the Presence of God—both what the anointing establishes and what it cannot. The anointing is given as a support system for projecting a message that brings forth an end product. The anointing does not function on its own by itself as a testimony to itself. It supports a message. The specific message the anointing is sent to support is the message of Yeshua and His cross. It is given as a witness to that truth.

    The anointing was never meant to be ministered—nor the Presence of God experienced—apart from the truth of the cross. But, as Judas shows us, the anointing is quite able to be so ministered apart from its true function as a witness to the truth.

    Removing the truth from the anointing (which occurs when the anointing is diverted to witness to itself) leaves room for a false “truth” to take its place, ie, a lie. Like an electron in search of a proton, the anointing cannot abide alone. By design it must support a message, a seed. And if it is separated from the message of the gospel and of the cross, it will then automatically support a false message, corrupting to become a lying sign and wonder.

    The anointing is to the truth very much like what the egg white is to the yoke of an egg. The yoke harbors the seed of identity of the chick to be. The egg white is a watery plasma that houses that yoke until the two, working together, bring forth the one new life. Even so the anointing is the Spirit womb that houses the truth seed-identity of the children of God. It works together with that seed to bring forth our eventual birth into immortality.

    But the seed—before it is fully consummated—can be removed (“fall away”) and actually be replaced with the seed of another: one who is like, but not the same as the Son of God. It can be replaced by the seed of Judas.

    As increasingly powerful as the corporate anointing of God is becoming in the earth, His Presence alone says utterly nothing about the state of heart of those enveloped under its cloud here below. The power of the Presence does not prove the nature of the seed that abides within its envelope.

    God sees into every heart beneath the anointing, under the Presence. He knows every thought of every heart. He is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Behind every raised hand and bent knee, He knows those who are living out the crucified life, and those who are not. He sees every devoted heart surrendered to Him, and every heart with one eye locked on the girl in the next row.

    Power of Imagery Vs. Reality
    The imagery associated with today’s corporate gatherings conveys very powerful portraits of a people practicing the presence of God—whether through print, or film, or CD, or DVD or website. The images of worship are everywhere. Images, images, images—glossy, slick, airbrushed. But images are yet only images, and portraits are only portraits. The Lord knows the hearts of all men, and discerns between the polished anointed picture which will pass away and the inner eternal reality.

    As wonderful and powerful as the anointing is today and ever increasing, it is still falling upon mortals who live under a veil separated from the Reality for which they are being prepared. Our worship and our gatherings now are designed to prepare us for the final transcendent Reality—as “beauty treatments” ahead of meeting our King. But there is no guarantee that they are or will so prepare us. They can lead to themselves. We can bask in the pleasure of “experiencing God” purely for the sake of the experience.

    We can become enamored of the image of our own anointed gatherings. We can become idolaters of our anointed gatherings and of the powerful images at our disposal for projecting them to others. Yet underneath it all, we may not have the seed of new birth in us at all, but be harbingers of the Judas seed, whose ultimate desire is to prostitute the Presence through the power of image to establish the Lord’s glory on the terms of this world.

    The Coming Dividing Cataclysm
    Between the image and the nearing Reality of immortal, incorruptible trans-veil worship is a great cataclysm at hand. A great separation is soon to take place. As the Lord said, “One shall be taken, the other left.” It’s important to know that this separation will not only occur in the field and at the mill. It will occur within the very anointed house of God itself.

    In the very midst of prophetic gatherings, worship conferences and “houses of prayer,” those of the cross who have come to full term in the anointing’s womb will be translated into the Reality their earthly worship has ever only pointed to. Those who never knew the truth but made a fair show of the anointing will be exposed as Judas was finally exposed. There will be nothing to prove any more.

    At that point, the power of the anointing upon mortal worship will be removed and the mirages attached to it. The anointing will be rendered ransid, even as manna that has passed its shelf life. The power of the images to sustain God’s people built on the anointing will collapse. It will seem that everything has come to nothing. The gatherings will be scattered. The Christian Cities will implode. The debris of thousands of Christian “theater houses” will be everywhere. The grace of God which has sustained humanity and allowed it to bask in the perceived sense of its own goodness will be withdrawn. The beast will turn on the harlot, and Judas will hang himself.

    But before this the anointed Judas will come to the fore. As men are tried under the Presence and become ever more enamored of the images associated with their own worship and gatherings, the Usurping Replacer of the true Seed and pretender to the Sonship throne will take his place in the glorious temple, encompassed by his corporate harlot, who having herself abandoned the cross long ago in favor of purely experiential (read, “sensual”) relationship with God will appear in all her exquisite beauty—arrayed in her royal kingdom garb and her bejeweled gifts of the Spirit.

    But in the cataclysm, both she and the son of perdition will be exposed for their truthless sham. Then the veil will be removed. And the worshippers in Spirit and in truth will appear with our Lord—a seed without guile masked by anointing.

    The moral? Don’t be swayed by the beauty. Don’t be deceived by the images. Ask yourself, “What is the message?”

    “I desire to know nothing among you but Christ Jesus, and him crucified.”

    This is tonight’s message from the Spirit.

    MY LORD, did we witness a NEW AGE INITIATION RITE ON WORLD CHRISTIAN TV?
    STRONG DELUSIONS AND DARK HEARTS ~ FALSE CRAZY REVIVALS ~ NEW AGE CHRIST
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SgByE0pX1M Serpentine Spirit- Kundalini


    EMMA-O TOOK ALL HER ANGELS AND LEFT. . . SLAMMING HER DEMONTIC STAR GATE TO THE THIRD HEAVENS DRIVING Bentley from her.
    And all the king’ horses and all the kings’ men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again. The entire world crazy GodTV and Bentley couldn’t call them back. THAT’LL TEACH THEM to snub EMMA O is, as the King of Hell and Judge of the souls of men . . . EMMA –O, the ruler of the underworld. EMMA-O: King of Hell. . . He lives the good life in a large castle covered in gold, silver, pearls and jewels. . . Woe to the inhabitants of the earth!

    THE ANGELS ARE GONE AND THE MAGIC PORTALS CLOSED TO THE THIRD HEAVENS TO TODD

    What to do. . . what to do? Todd flashed his El Diablo signs, they did not work. The angels were gone. His power vanished. The disgraced EMMA – O had suffered a fatal wound visible to people on this side of the veil. Wendy’s grandiose vision that Jesus would show up on June 6, 08, never happened. Turns out the voice that spoke “the word” was bogus,” it” lied ~ the chariot of the King never came through the Lakeland magical portal.
    “I’m not done yet,” Todd chaotically whined. ”Call down the fire, Call down the fire, angels, angels, he hysterically chanted. . . Maybe the door is open somewhere else . . . God I’m asking, send the angels…. Holy Ghost Come Down … Fire, fire, fire . . . Also it is very ironic how Todd
    Bentley and his affiliates are constantly pleading for “fire to come down upon them” and even talking about photos that show fire upon people in their services. Well the only fire from God is JUDGMENT in hell fire.
    ”Liberty come, screamed Bentley. I love Liberty,” Todd frenziedly prayed, calling for his new angel Liberty that he had unleashed after he banished EMMA-O.
    PETER WAGNER ~ THE WINDS OF CHANGE
    Peter Wagner’s web site said, “This is a year to open the gates. Most of us think that the gate is a physical place that will appear in front of you. However, the first gate we must go through is Heaven’s Gate! This is where we enter boldly into the Throne Room and receive super-abounding grace so we can leap through the place of the “new” in the earth! Consequently, on we will be convening a gathering in Dearborn to open the gate of change to realign the nations. Speakers include Peter Wagner, Chuck Pierce, Barbara Yoder, Pat Francis, and Cindy Jacobs.

  4. http://www.scribd.com/doc/3871573/Todd-Bentley-Rick-JoinerThe-Cosmic-Tree-STAR-GATES-TO-THE-THIRD-HEAVEN-

    A few preachers are beginning to get it. They are losing their sheep and tithes because they let the wolves into the pen. Lakeland is NOT a place to go out of curiosity. IT IS DANGEROUS – much soul snatching is going on there. A preacher called me said, I went over and took a group from my church. I was washing my hands and the Lord spoke to me and said, “Get out of here. This place is filled with wizards and witches. I left.

    Pat, I’ve lost many people and they started giving their money to Todd Bentley. A preacher that I know in Tampa is going to lose his church, they’ve left and going to Todd’s. I see the danger and when I try to warn my fellow pastor friends, they get angry with me and break fellowship. This is the most heart retching thing that I have ever seen.”
    Todd Bentley’s and GOD-TV- Wendy Alec’s gods “IT” and the god of “COME AND GET SOME,” are ravaging souls and sheep hustling are heading your way. Pastor, are you prepared for the great separation and falling away? Are you ready for lifetime friends that will no longer speak to you because they are spiritually gone? It’s already happening, they go into the star gate and what comes back is not their spirit. THEY ARE GONE — FOREVER!
    Read this new report, weep for the church, fast and pray.
    TO THE THIRD HEAVEN ~ Transformation~ “BAM-BAM” – (BhaMBhaM) – to sodomize NEW AGE TRANCE ~ ANTICHRIST LOOMS ~ THEY ARE GETTING YOU READY THEIR NEW RELIGIOUS LEADER, THE ANTICHRIST
    TODD BENTLEY SAID AFTER HIS GREAT FRIENDSHIP RING INITIATION “Oh this is so global.”
    COSMIC TREE
    Looking For the Tree of Life – In search of the Return to Eden
    Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree: De 12:2

    THE NEW BREED ~ Lakeland Outpouring Apostolic Team: Chuck Pierce, Dutch Sheets, Lee Grady, Steve Strang, Ché Ahn, Jeff Beacham, David Cannistraci, Joseph Askins, Bill Johnson, John Arnott, and many more are no longer in hiding. We can clearly see them and more are coming exposed every day. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY. . . When the sheep go to the other side, they don’t come back.

    Expect to see big dying – empty churches around the world. . . Captured by the dead Jesus god of Todd Bentley, GOD-TV, THE NEW BREED and the demonic angels from the “The Third Heaven” star gates.

    GOD-TV WENDY ALEC of godless-TV
    And what’s even scarier is what Bentley’s endorser, Wendy Alec, co-founder of God-TV prophesied regarding this latest “outpouring” of the unholy spirit:
    “THIS is just the warm up party – for what you shall see in the coming days shall even make these days pale – with what I have up my sleeve. And I tell you my son – that THIS THAT I POUR OUT UPON YOU UPON FLORIDA shall flow to the east.”
    Does God have something up his sleeve? Of course not! These words emerged from the pit of hell where Emma rules.
    Continue to pray… The devils cannot hide and our Lord Jesus Christ is more powerful, if we will pray, then He will hear from heaven and heal our land.
    Blessings to you,
    Pat Holliday

  6. Getting past the “manifestations” – what was said?

    Stacey Campbell is best known as the “prophetess” who moves in “Ecstatic Prophecy.” In other words, her head spins like the gal in the exorcist. This is nothing new.

    However, I beg you to get past the “manifestations” and hear what is actually being spoken in the name of God.
