keeping a watchful eye on the wolves

Worthy is the Lamb

The men of the Bible always fell down when they saw the glory of the Lord. Even the angels fall down before Him.

-Abraham fell on his face before God
-Moses and Aaron fell on their faces in the presence of all the assembly of the congregation and before God
-Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down
-Ezekiel, and Daniel fell on their faces
-Isaiah said “Woe is me, for I am ruined!Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips;For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”
-Simon Peter fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!”
-the disciples fell face down to the ground and were terrified
-the leper fell on his face at the feet of Jesus
-the angels who were standing around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, all fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God

In the Bible we never read about anyone who saw God’s glory and said “BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! HO! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! HEY! HEY! HEY! TAKE IT! TAKE! TAKE IT!” As well, we never read that they fell on their backs and laughed while in God’s glory.

Instead, they recognized the glory and holiness of the Lord. They didn’t blabber on about “it” and tell everyone that they felt “it,” and to come and “get some.” They didn’t command God to release His glory. They didn’t draw attention to themselves for having seen God’s glory, or make money from His glory. They just fell down on their faces before God, exposed, terrified. When they saw His glory, they knew their wretchedness, and they worshiped Him. Even the angels do not take God’s glory, but give it back to Him. Except for the fallen ones.

Wolves in sheeps clothing take glory in themselves. They even give glory to angels. Wolves have no fear of God, and they don’t fall on their faces before the Lamb of God. But they will, soon enough. The Lord has said it, and it will come to pass.

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Matthew 7: 22,23

A PRAYER ON BEHALF OF THE SHEEP

Lord Jesus, on behalf of your flock, hear our prayer. We repent for not bowing down before you! We have made idols of signs, wonders, gifts, feelings, and experiences, while following men, not You! Forgive us Lord, cleanse our hearts, and send true revival! We bow down and confess, we fall face down before You, the Lamb of God. Only you are worthy to be praised!

We bow down and confess

Give Us Clean Hands

Lord, soften their hearts, open their eyes. Send your Spirit to convict them, for your Name’s sake. Amen.

I’m done now, it’s time to go…

BAM x 24

Since there was no official medical documentation presented for the miracles claimed during Todd Bentley’s Florida outpouring (as Nightline’s expose revealed), we must ask – is there any medical documentation follow up for this energetic episode where Todd Bentley BAM’s this woman 24x?

Watch the hype here:

Hip Healed
During a recent outpouring meeting…

http://www.morningstarministries.org/Publisher/Article.aspx?ID=1000064354

Todd Bentley: “DO IT JESUS! A BRAND…NEW…HIP! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM!”

…pause…

“Why do I do that I don’t know but when power flows that comes out of my mouth.”

“But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man.” Matthew 15:18

It sounds like there is a lot of BAM in this man’s heart. Todd Bentley doesn’t seem to know why he says it, but he likes to say it quite loudly, and 24 times in a row. So what exactly does he mean by saying BAM? And what is the definition of this word BAM? The following definitions may give us a clue, and are taken from various dictionary sources:

BAM:
-used to suggest the sound of a sudden, hard impact
-to strike with a hard impact
-a pejorative term for a Woman Marine, reportedly meaning broad a__ed Marine. Never used much in the presence of female Marines out of fear of bodily harm. Women Marine recruits in the 1960s, when it was most used, were taught that the letters meant “Beautiful American Marine”. Known to have been used as early as World War II.
-an ancient city in southeastern Iran; destroyed by an earthquake in 2003, a theocratic Islamic republic in the Middle East in western Asia; Iran was the core of the ancient empire that was known as Persia until 1935; rich in oil
-sound of any kind (especially unintelligible or dissonant sound)

BAM Acronyms:
-By All Means
-Bacteriological Analytical Manual
-Basilar Artery Migraine
-Berkeley Art Museum

So, Mr. Bentley. Which BAM is it? What is the point of repeating it so often? And have you really changed, repented or been humbled before our Holy God at all?

Did Todd Bentley ever really have the gift of healing? Or is he like clouds and wind without rain?

Allow the Bible to decide

Proverbs 25:14 says:

“Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.”

The same hokey pokey is now going on at Morning Star, where they claim that 40 were healed while doing the Holy Ghost Hokey Pokey.

15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

A Prayer for all the Sheep

Keith Green – Create in Me a Clean Heart

Oh Lord, give us a clean heart. Cleanse and restore us, oh God. Forgive our straying hearts, and our wicked ways, and help us to follow only you. Our souls thirst for you! Lead us to your living water, and keep us far from evil.

6 All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He did not open His mouth;
Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,
And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,
So He did not open His mouth.
Isaiah 53

Thank you Lord Jesus for being the perfect lamb who took away the sins of the world.

Now we ask that you will bring those who are misrepresenting your Holy Name to their knees in repentance for their sinful ways! Humble their prideful hearts, oh God. May these wolves who are deceiving and destroying your precious lambs be soon found trembling before you, for your Name’s sake. We have obeyed and warned, now we pray that those who have ears to hear will listen. In the name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!


This is Straight from the ‘Wolf in Sheeps Clothing Strategy Manual’

Wolf in Sheeps Clothing Strategy Manual, Chapter 66

Wolves, you must take time to air out your sheeps clothing, especially if some of the smarter sheep have gotten wind of your scent. While doing so, regroup and bring in the sympathy factor. To be an effective imposter, you must do what it takes to make the sheep believe you are a compassionate victim of wolves who would never hurt a mouse. Make them forget they ever saw your fangs. Remember, sheep have a short memory. Use this to your advantage.

For an excellent example, see Exhibit B, Plan B:

Sadly, Some Sheep See a Wolf Behind Every Bush

Some sheep are so used to being with the wolf that they think they see a wolf howling behind every bush, and would not recognize the Good Shepherd if He were to stand right in front of them. This is how some sheep who were in attendance during the confrontation of Todd Bentley perceived the men of God who were calling him to repentance. They…

“…perceived, at different points during worship, a strong demonic presence in the room. It felt like it was brooding. Or festering. That might be a better word.

So worship ended and Todd Bentley took the stage and started to take up the evening offering. From the balcony a voice rang out – screeching about adultery and repentance. Security came and got him.

Then, in turn from all around the room other men did the same thing. I think there were five in all who spoke up. There were two more who hung out the rest of service and didn’t say anything.

It was ugly. As each man began to speak you could actually feel the demonic presence coming from them. It was like… it was on their voices. Not something I’ve experienced quite like that before.

Todd was gracious. I was impressed….

I’m pretty sure that one of hte guys was Bud Press. Sounded like his voice”

An outbreak of heresy hunters @ Morningstar[iamhealed.net]

This is so sad. Please, pray for the blind and deaf sheep, that they would recognize the voice of the Good Shepherd and follow Him away from the wolves.

Those who confront wolves…

Those who confront wolves in sheeps clothing are very bold and must be commended. These wolves are often protected by their pack, making this no small matter. Here is the brand new blog of Todd Bentley’s confronters…

WHO WE ARE, WHY WE WENT, WITH VIDEO
A brief explanation:
We are followers of our Lord Jesus. In our group were pastors, evangelists, street preachers, husbands, wives, businessmen, children, grandchildren, etc. We went to confront the blatant, public sin and deception being foisted upon Charismatic/Pentecostal segments of the church of Jesus in particular. We all work together with an organization called Operation Save America. Learn more about OSA here: operationsaveamerica.org

OSA was having its annual leadership conference here in Charlotte and it just so happens that it is the same time Todd Bentley was having his conference. Knowing many months ago that Bentley and Morningstar were going to hatch this fake restoration scheme, I was burdened of the Lord to go and confront them whenever they decided to put Todd back up there. I did not know when this would be. I spoke with Flip Benham, the National Director of OSA and he agreed we would take a group and go. Little did we know that the Lord would work it out so that Todd and Morningstar, the false prophetic, would be confronted by those who have lived and walked in the true prophetic life and ministry….

{HT: Bene Diction Blogs On}

Weep for the sheep who stayed in their seats!

Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart. Jeremiah 14:14

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 Peter 2:1

100 Year Old Prophecy

Come on sheep, don’t fall for the old ‘one-hundred-year-old prophecy’ trick…

“In 1910, William Seymour, of Azusa Street Mission fame, prophesied that in 100 years a worldwide revival would sweep the earth. According to that prophecy, there would be an outpouring of the Shekinah Glory of God that would surpass even the Azusa Street revival.

Rick Joyner knows this….”

Todd Bentley: God Bless Those Who Persecute Us

Over at Todd Bentley’s Twitter page he left this tweet:

IamToddBentley

Thanks for the Love. God is blessing his people. Tonite the presence was so sweet and God bless those who persecute us

Note: By now you’ve heard that Bentley’s service at MorningStar was interrupted last night by some people who decided to go and confront Bentley in his adultery and false doctrine. A bit of a fracas broke out when they began shouting during the offering, and the police were called to escort them out. Is that a tactic I would have chosen myself? No, perhaps not. but it’s making for good blogging press today. It also gives Bentley a bit of a persecution complex. More on this as it continues to break. But for now, let’s move along to the matter at hand…

The viciousness of wolves

Take heed, sheep. Do not take lightly the Bible’s many warnings that there will be wolves among you.

The viciousness of wolves

The most severe enemy of sheep is the predator–the flesh-eating wild animal (indicated in Matthew 10:16 as a wolf). According to (Phillip) Keller, “Two [wild] dogs have been known to kill as many as 292 sheep in a single night of unbridled slaughter. Ewes, heavy in lamb, when chased by dogs or other predators will slip their unborn lambs and lose them in abortions. A shepherd’s loss from such forays can be appalling. One morning at dawn I found nine of my choicest ewes, all soon to lamb, lying dead in the field” (p. 37).

“On several occasions [cougars] came in among my sheep at night working terrible havoc in the flock. Some ewes were killed outright, their blood drained and livers eaten. Others were torn open and badly clawed…. Some had huge patches of wool torn from their fleeces. In their frightened stampede some had stumbled and broken bones or rushed over rough ground injuring legs and bodies.

“Yet despite the damage, despite the dead sheep, despite the injuries and fear instilled in the flock, I never once actually saw a cougar on my range. So cunning and so skillful were their raids they defy description” (pp. 108-9). And wolves are just as deadly.

They are correct, and need look no further than the false prophets, empowered by fallen angels and posing as sheep in the church.

Would a Shepherd of the Flock release a Serpent on his Sheep and Lambs?

“…those of you who’d like ministry, go ahead and stand up, get in the middle section, youth, children, those of you who’ve been touched by the fire…”

This was the Kundalini Serpent Power that was being released upon the sheep and the lambs who volunteered to be burnt offerings to the fire at Morning Star, where Todd Bentley was/is being ‘healed’ and ‘restored’ back into ‘greater glory’ and serpent power ministry.

A closer look at the Left Paw

“If you look closely at Todd’s hand again you will see an image of a cross and a crown. Oftentimes, this symbol is used in Christianity to bear the witness of a “cross lived life” rewarded with the crown after death. However, this symbol is used in other societies including Masonry, more specifically The Knights Templar and the Occult. Remember, Rick Joyner, the man who took on “restoring” Todd is an admitted member of Knights of Malta. Simply, this is Freemasonry, with ancient Roman Catholicism at the roots.”
