Follow up to the 13th ‘Confirmed’ Resurrection

“NUMBER 13  FROM THE DEAD! We’re gonna confirm it. We gotta confirm it. We’re gonna do a follow up. But I thought I’d read it as I received the testimony.” – Todd Bentley

So here is the follow up to that 13th resurrection:

    “Bentley continues reading the unverified e-mail, stating that,

    “My brother sat up in the coffin praising God and the Reverend Todd Bentley!”

    Now that’s treading on some dangerous territory, don’t you think? Praising God and Todd Bentley? Any minister with the fear of God in him would have either not read that portion or immediately said, no, no, no don’t praise me…I’m simply the messenger, all praise and glory are God’s and His alone!

    Somebody needs to get that guy some help before he seriously goes too far.

    Hi Lisa,

    It’s quite a claim, isn’t it?

    Yet so many continue to support him.

  3. In Scripture, (Near as I can recall) all angels of the Lord were quick to tell those who bowed before them to “Get up!” Then these angels would correct the person before them, declaring themselves to be simply a messenger of the Lord, not the Lord who is alone to be praised.

    Some might try to suggest that Todd was simply excited and read too quickly, but for someone who is as anointed as Todd and his followers claim him to be… That line would never have just slipped right by Todd without him noticing at all that he was lifting himself up as equal with the Lord.

    This man, Todd, is in grave, grave danger and I fear that the Lord may have already completely lifted His hand of protection from Todd, allowing him to sink himself further and further into the depths of condemnation’s pit. I pray that is not so, and that there is still room for a complete and total repentance and restoration for Todd, because we know that the Lord is not willing that any should perish.

    Still, that being said, I can’t help but think of Acts chapter 12: 19-24

    Then Herod went from Judea to Caesarea and stayed there a while.

    20 He had been quarreling with the people of Tyre and Sidon; they now joined together and sought an audience with him. Having secured the support of Blastus, a trusted personal servant of the king, they asked for peace, because they depended on the king’s country for their food supply.

    21 On the appointed day Herod, wearing his royal robes, sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people.

    22 They shouted, “This is the voice of a god, not of a man.”

    23 Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.

    24 But the word of God continued to increase and spread.

    Praise God that His Word will continue to increase and spread regardless of the Todd Bentley’s of the world.

    Good article by Bud Press…

    Blame it on the late [or early] hour but i did find myself ‘trying’ to keep from laughing at the absurd idea of everyone gathering around to watch GODTV at an all night wake;(in the presence of the deceased, no less)

    I’ve attended my share of all night wakes; those things seem to be common here in the south. But i could not imagine gathering around to watch TV [or a computer screen].

    Either Todd and/or his ‘crew’ concocted this and many of these supposed resurrections,or else he just believed any and every email he received.

    Too bad sheepy-we could have tested this theory out by sending our own bogus email account, just to see if it was proclaimed real and counted into the number of resurrections Todd supposedly played a hand in.

    Just teasing..

    I never could understand the concept of an all night wake.

    I wonder about this report too. Who in their right mind would actually report something like this as fact?

    As far as testing your theory…it’s not too late. 🙂

    I think wakes are popular in SE KY because so many who came here to settle came from Ireland and Scotland Sheepy…they brought the tradition with them and it ‘stuck’…

    I see no need for them either. In the old days i believe people used them as an excuse to get drunk and reminisce, recalling stories about the deceased.:-)

    As far as who would report something like that story–most likely someone who wanted to ‘involve’ themselves personally in what they thought was a huge event being widely publicized.

    I saw today that the upcoming California event [this weekend] with Bentley is going to be shown on GODTV.

  8. Maybe the person or persons who reported that story were simply “testing their own theory?”

    That would be pretty funny to find out that it was Dateline or 20/20 and it becomes part of some future story.
