keeping a watchful eye on the wolves

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?

      He is a long time wrestling fan, which might explain a few things.

    If i wasn’t so polite I would be bamming Mr Bentley myself right now for his and Mr Joyners sickly smile and smug approach to inciting us all to bam him.

    To so self assuredly walk in, the glory clouds of ………… and the annointing of ………. and ‘cock a snoop’at everyone as he does so has him walking very close to my tolerance fresh fire of fury. Mr Joyners ‘gang’ is welcome to him quite frankly and his so called ANNOINTING.

      I agree. God will now give them over to their error, as He has given them an opportunity to repent. How patient He has been with us all, but even more so with these men who make a mockery of His Holy name.

    From Wiki:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86nima#cite_note-33

    The segue “Die Eier von Satan” has a heavy industrial guitar played over a reversed drum beat with an irregular time signature (9/8). The lyrical component of the song is in German, performed by Marko Fox, a member of ZAUM. He is backed by a sound that resembles a hydraulic press,[29] and crowd cheering and applause that increase in volume as the lyrics are read with increasing ferocity. These combined effects make the song sound like a militant[30] German rant[31] or Nazi rally.[32] While the sound and the word “Satan” in the title may suggest to listeners that the lyrics feature aggressive or even violent content, the speaker is merely reciting a cookie recipe,[32] for hashish or Mexican cookies.[14] The song was originally translated by Gudrun Fox. According to Blair McKenzie Blake, the maintainer of the official Tool website, “Die Eier von Satan” originally were cookies that “Marko Fox’s grandmother used to bake for him as a child, without using eggs as an ingredient. The substitution for eggs is a magical incantation from the worm-eaten pages of some moldering grimoire.”[33] This magical incantation (“sim salabim bam ba saladu saladim”) is taken from the German children’s song “Auf einem Baum ein Kuckuck saß”.[34] According to the lyrics, the special ingredient besides this “incantation” is actually “a knife-tip of Turkish hashish”. The title literally translates to “The Eggs of Satan”[30] or “The Balls of Satan,” due to a German double entendre of “Eier”, which means “eggs” and also serves as a slang word for “testicles”. The experimentation in this song has been compared to that of Einstürzende Neubauten.[14][29][35]

    Here’s the German cookie incantation:

    http://ingeb.org/Lieder/aufeinem.html

    Translating it from German:

    On a tree a cuckoo, —
    Sim sa la dim, bam ba,
    Sa la du, sa la dim —
    Sitting on a tree a cuckoo.
    2. As a young hunter came, —
    Sim sa la dim, bam ba,
    Sa la du, sa la dim —
    Then came a young hunter.

    3. The shot the poor cuckoo, —
    Sim sa la dim, bam ba,
    Sa la du, sa la dim —
    Who shot dead the poor cuckoo

    4. And passed over a year, —
    Sim sa la dim, bam ba,
    Sa la du, sa la dim —
    And was passed over a year.

    5. As the cuckoo was again, —
    Sim sa la dim, bam ba,
    Sa la du, sa la dim —
    Then again the cuckoo (spoken quickly) was alive.

    6. As the people rejoiced,
    Sim sa la dim, bam ba,
    Sa la du, sa la dim —
    As the people rejoiced much.

    Bam is also a Sanskrit letter. I’ve heard Todd Bentley speak in Sanskrit-tongues in quite a few videos. Bam also corresponds with a petal of the SVADISHTHANA CHAKRA:

    Chakra Two: Water, Emotional identity, oriented to self-gratification. The second chakra, located in the abdomen, lower back, and sexual organs, is related to the element water, and to emotions and sexuality. It connects us to others through feeling, desire, sensation, and movement. Ideally this chakra brings us fluidity and grace, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment, and the ability to accept change.

    Meaning: Dwelling Place of the Self.
    Location: Genitals.
    Water Element: Semen, Blood, Fat, Urine and Mucus.
    Attributes: Purity and Attachments.
    Desire: Family and Friends.
    Activity: Peaceful Jobs.
    Symbol: Blue Crescent Moon, surrounded by 6 Red Petals and Water encircling the Earth.
    Mantra: Repetition of Bijan Mantra-Lam, removes insecurities associated with this Chakra. Each petal has a Sanskrit letter (Bam, Bham, Mam, Yam, Lam and Ram).
    Deities: Each Chakra has a Manifestation of the Shiva and Shakti Deities. Vishnu – The Preserver Embodiment of Right Living. Rakini Shakti – Inspiration to Worldly Art and Music. Crocodile – Vehicle of the Bija. Mantra-Vam. Sensuous and Tricky.

    I’ll save the rest of the analysis relating to Jessa Bentley’s dancing Ganesh elephant for another comment later. But, check this out:
