keeping a watchful eye on the wolves

prophecy watch

While Some Shepherds Watch Their Flocks

While some shepherds watch their flocks, others invite hirelings and wolves in.

On Dec 31, 2014, the New Year is being brought in to Canada by Todd Bentley.

It’s almost that time of year again! Todd Bentley is coming to Windword to help us bring in the New Year. This will be a powerful night full of worship and prophetic words over 2015.
See: http://www.freshfireusa.com/events/view/642-Langley-BC
[Poster: http://windword.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/New-Years-Service.jpg%5D

Then, the false prophetic will continue in a New Years Conference at Windword, Jan 2-4. The announcement says:

Let’s continue bringing in 2015 strong! This New Years Conference is the perfect time to solidify everything that was proclaimed in the New Years Eve Service and to make new proclamations of what we expect 2015 to hold in store for us. We will have powerful words from Todd Bentley, Brent Borthwick, and Nolan Clark! So whether you had a good year in 2014 and want to make sure this next year is just as good, or you want to totally change your life in 2015…you need to come out to this conference. Let’s jump start 2015 for the Kingdom of God!

Rick Joyner on Ebola

No scripture supports the following statement by Rick Joyner …

“I think everyone of God’s people are supposed to be able to enter into the heavenly realm and then to return with evidence of heavens reality and authority over everything on earth….”

Like Ebola and ‘regions of radiation’ . . .

Angel Tales or Wolf Tales?

JAMES GOLL’S ANGEL VISITATIONS, ORBS, AND NEW AUDIBLE PROPEHCY FROM “JESUS”

Warning: This is quite possibly the most demonic video program I have ever seen, and I don’t say this lightly.

I was scrolling through my news feed and saw this “By His Stripes We Are Healed” headline on WND, where It’s Supernatural’s host Sid Roth airs a popular video report. Today Roth introduces us to a seer and prophet James Goll, who claims Jesus Himself taught Goll how to heal.

“The first prophecy I ever heard came out of my own mouth,” Goll begins, as Roth excitedly probes him about his own testimony before asking about Goll’s latest vision…

Recentley James Goll endorsed a book by Stacey Campbell called Ecstatic Prophecy:

Ecstatic Sheep?
https://sheepyweepy.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/ecstatic-prophecy-or-possession/


Ecstatic Sheep?

Have you read this book called Ecstatic Prophecy by Stacey Campbell?

This book’s foreword is written by Bill Johnson and it is endorsed by various voices of the false prophetic movement such as James Goll, and Heidi Baker of the recent strange fish prophecy. . .

On page 29 of Ecstatic Prophecy (which you can find here), Campbell writes that Ecstatic prophecy, to quote David Aune (professor of theology at Loyola University of Chicago), is a form of possession trance. The physical possession, she writes, is as real as the spiritual possession, sometimes occurring against or above the prophet’s will. She then goes on to say that Christian mystics through the ages have experienced such visible ecstasy as hers, in the form of drunkenness, jerks, transports and violent shaking.

But the Bible teaches that the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets (1 Cor. 14:32). This means that a Christian is not so overwhelmed by prophecy that they writhe and jerk as in demon possession. When the Spirit of God moves upon us, we are still in control of how to exercise our spiritual gift. We surrender to the prompting and power of the Holy Spirit in obedience. He does not control us and embarrass us, like a demon would, but guides and directs us in a manner that always glorifies Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will not overtake and make his children shake and give crazy prophecies that don’t come true, for which we must later apologize.

Shame on the wolves in sheep’s clothing who teach the sheep falsehoods about the gifts from the Good Shepherd who loves them. The Father gives good and perfect gifts to his children, not destructive ‘gifts’ of drunkenness, jerking, and violent shaking. The Bible tells us so, as in Luke 11:13, Matthew 7:11, and James 1:17. Dear sheep, please read the Bible to discern His gifts, not books written and endorsed by false prophets.


Stacey is Still Ecstatic

Six years after the head shaking false prophecy over Todd Bentley, which she later apologized for, Stacey Campbell is still being given the platform to share more ecstatic head shaking prophecies.

January 2014 . . .

Holy Spirit prophesy? Or ecstatic Kundalini spirit . . .


Sheep invited to Banquet

Chuck Pierce Invites Christians To “The Banqueting Table”
by Sandy Simpson, 12/17/13

Chuck Pierce, the new head false apostle of the New Apostolic Reformation, formerly under false apostle C. Peter Wagner, has just announced on the ElijahList that he wants to “invite each of you to COME TO THE BANQUETING TABLE on January 2-5, 2014 at the Global Spheres Center in Corinth, Texas!” This is a call for people to sign up for yet another conference of false apostles and false prophets, but the ad sounds like he is inviting people to the “Marriage Supper Of The Lamb”. You may find that idea absurd until you listen to these people “declaring” things “from the heavenlies”. In another December 16, 2013 issue of ElijahList Pierce states that they are going to “Rend the Heavens and Let Prophetic Revelation Fall!” These people are so deluded that they think they are in the place of God.

Tracking Another False Prophecy

You may say in your heart, ‘How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’
“When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him. Deuteronomy 18:21,22

For example:

The revival that Todd Bentley predicted for Fresno is now overdue. By perhaps 12 years but at least 10 months

Todd Bentley’s Failed Prophecy

Speaking of testing the wolves prophets…

Do you know that Todd Bentley made a prophecy last September about a big revival that never happened?

“And the Lord told me ‘A great revival is about the break out in Finland. It’ll be… (cheers) Listen! The conversions in Finland will be like [Charles Finney. The conversions in Finland will be like Finney….and I saw almost like an atomic explosion of glory come down over Finland and it started spreading into other places, missionaries going out of Finland into, Eastern Europe, Estonia, Latvia. other countries…”

The Test

This is a test for anyone that is a follower of the message of William Branham.

Wolf Watch – Todd’s 12 City Tour

Here is the latest news:

One, two, many Lakelands

An e-mail from Tood Bentley’s ministry on Friday, as he continues to tour the USA, predicts “revivals” in 12 American cities.

Would that it were so, but I hear the Church Lady character from Saturday Night Live saying “How conveeeenient.”

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…

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….

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….”

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…

DANGER! The Wolf Will Be Back – Bigger Than Ever! [2010 UPDATE]

The alert sheep got wind of the danger a few weeks ago, when the wolf pack began howling in the distance, announcing their approach. Now I must climb back up on the wall, even if for a brief moment, and sound the warning to the flock.

THE WOLF WILL BE BACK!

Listen to Rick Joyner say that Todd Bentley is gonna be back, bigger than ever, better than ever! He has no doubt of this. Watch it and weep!

Rick Joyner manipulation
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4Fdn96cj_E

Rick Joyner also said this recently at the beginning of his restoration series ‘teaching’ videos. See for yourself by clicking on the video by Rick Joyner called The Restoration Begins Video Update @ http://www.morningstarministries.org.

If you you are a sensitive sheep and do not have the second or third stomach to watch this video, here are a few quotes that should be alarming enough to make you cough up your cud:

“He will be back.” – Rick Joyner

“He could be out in public ministry again probably, have pretty big crowds again…” –Rick Joyner

(*Note that he says that’s not what the videos are about, of course, they are to ‘help’ people.)

“The one group of people that the Lord had no patience for was the self righteous…” –Rick Joyner

(*Note that these restoration videos are only for the gullible sheeple.)

And what is this video series about?

They say they are going to be telling all the sordid details, weekly…

“We’re gonna really try to tell the story as frankly and as openly as we possibly can, for your sake, not just, you know, to rebuild Todd’s ministry, that will happen. We know that. He will be back. And I believe better than ever, and uh, has an important part to play but we’re doing this for the sake of openness and helping people.” –Rick Joyner

* * * * * *

Do what you want with this warning, but the questions remain…

Will Todd Bentley return with or without his angel? Has Emma left the building? And will there be more creative hoaxes miracles like the ones we have seen in the past? Will the lame grow their leg stumps another inch walk? Will the blind notice light shadows see through glass eye balls healed eyes? Will the dead be raised shouting glory to Todd God? Will old ladies be kicked in the face blessed and ministered to, cancer patients kicked in the gut prayed for?

True or False? Tracking the “Growing Fingers” Prophecy

Somethin’s happenin’, somethin’s happenin’…let your toes grow back from frostbite”…“People are growing fingers”…“I command you to grow arms and legs” – Todd Bentley

QUESTION: Is this true or false? Have anyone’s toes actually grown back from frost bite? Is God really growing fingers and toes, arms and legs now? Are missing body parts growing back?

That is what Todd Bentley says in this video:

http://www.godtube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=e906f8ca8ee72d95d66c

Arms and legs aside, let’s take the smallest example: fingers. Are there any people out there who have documented medical evidence, pictures, videos, witnesses of their brand new creatively grown fingers (or toes and missing body parts)? If so, please show us. We would love to see the before and after testimonial pictures (slow motion video of the growth would be even better). (Note: Half an inch of growth on amputated leg stubs does not count.)

If there are no people coming forward with such evidence of even a new pinky finger tip, this will mean that Todd Bentley is not telling the truth.

Remember, Todd Bentley said: “People ARE growing fingers.” It is no small claim to say (in front of thousands of people, on live TV, who are devouring your every word) that people ARE growing fingers. A prophet of the Lord who is working in his “gifting” under the “anointing” cannot backtrack and simply say it was a “mistake.” Perhaps someone should challenge him on this statement, and others like it. This is serious business! If the information a prophet receives and speaks is FALSE, then either the spirit speaking through that prophet is a LYING spirit, or the prophet has made it up (lied). Therefore, it is only logical that Todd Bentley is either:

a) telling the truth (and speaking God’s truth)

b) not telling the truth (lying)

c) delusional

Let us not be mindless gullible sheep, but let us use reason and logic in these situations that play prey on human emotions, desires, longings and feelings.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD… ( Isaiah 1:18 )

To help the flock think through situations like these, Living in the Way has recently started a new feature of biblical reasoning and discerning of miracles called…

U-JUDGE-IT – Are these true miracles?
http://blog.thewaycf.com/2008/07/u-judge-it-are-these-true-miracles.html

—–

Update:

It has been brought to my attention that Todd actually did say, “People are growing fingers and toes” at 2:48 on the video clip. So come on, we want those pictures…fingers AND toes!


Sheep! Do not go there!

Just because pastors and Christians who have been there SAY there is nothing unbiblical or unscriptural at this revival, does that mean there is nothing unbiblical or unscriptural at this revival?

Listen to this MP3 of the deceived sheep being interviewed…

http://www.spiritlessons.com/Documents/Florida_Outpouring/Message_to_Critics.mp3

A list of supposed authentic revival healings from the Florida outpouring can also be found at Spirit Lessons here:
http://www.spiritlessons.com/Documents/Florida_Outpouring/Todd_Bentley_Florida_Healing_Outpouring_Revival.htm

(Please be warned, the above website is a deadly mixture of truth and error and bad discernment, but it shows the kind of backing that Todd Bentley has.)

Perhaps the problem with these sincerely deceived people is that they went to see it to get some, when Jesus said, do not go there. Oh sheep, don’t go – and if you already have, run back to the Shepherd!!!

Please take some time and listen to the warning in this timely message that is posted at Sola Dei Gloria called The End Times Outpouring of Antichrist:
http://pjmiller.wordpress.com/2008/06/28/the-end-times-outpouring-of-antichrist/

Jesus warned about this revival and others like it…

And He said, “See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, ‘ I am He,’ and, ‘The time is near ‘ Do not go after them. Luke 21:8

“They will say to you, ‘Look there! Look here!’ Do not go away, and do not run after them.” Luke 17:23

“So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them. Matthew 24:26

So when they things like this: on the 8th of June, Jesus says I am coming in person tomorrow night in the clouds in a chariot surrounded by the angelic host to visit the Lakeland revival, to set foot upon the stage in divine personal one to one visitation…in atmosphere, spiritual experience and the realm of the gloryDO NOT GO!!!!!!!


More Disappearing Trails

If you have ever observed the tracks left behind by sheep, you would know that a sheep’s foot print looks very different than a wolf foot foot print. This is why wolves in sheeps clothing need to continually cover their tracks, otherwise the sheep will know that there are wolves among them in the sheep pen. Let’s take a look at some recent tracks that have been covered up on the disappearing trail…

We all heard about the disappearance of Todd Bentley’s references to his angel Emma, who became simply that “particular” angel as his story was changed (see Todd Bentley, Is he now ashamed of his angel Emma?).

But that is not the only thing that is being changed as Christian bloggers expose what is going on behind the scenes while wolves in sheeps clothing tip toe around in the sheep pen, trying to act like sheep.

For example:

The godtube video of Todd Bentley at The Secret Place in Abbotsford, B.C., as referred to in the post called
Following the Tracks (Part 2)- from Abbotsford to Lakeland and Around the World, has disappeared.

Here is another one. After being up for a long time, the youtube video of Mark Virkler teaching how to hear the voice of God through automatic writing/channelling (as recently referred to in a post called Todd Bentley Responds to Criticism) has suddenly disappeared. In the video, Virkler sat down and typed out a message on the spot from God for his interviewer in a cheap display of “hear God guaranteed” on demand, not unlike putting coins into a soda pop dispenser. This was an important video as Virkler’s spiritual advisor is Dr. Gary Greig, whose widely publicized endorsement Freshfire uses to legitimize Todd Bentley and the false Florida revival.

Then there’s the strange phenomena of shifting articles. Take for example the glory cloud revelation (Todd’s vision of Sundar Singh) as referred to in Todd Bentley and Contemplative Meditation.The link to this vision account disappeared. It was later discovered that it was simply changed on the Freshfire website shortly after many discernment blogs had linked to it.

Then there’s this one which deserves a longer explanation. A recent article on Wolf Tracks that got a lot of traffic and referals was called LECTIO DIVINA – Leading Sheep to a New Level of Consciousness. While I was writing this article, I copied and pasted the words from a page on the Youth Specialties website that was written by Mike Perschon. In the article, Pershon mentioned the four levels of consciousness achieved through practicing Lectio Divina.

This is what I wrote in the Lectio Divina article (the words in quotation marks were copied and pasted from Mike Perschon’s article, as were the four steps of consciousness, or so I thought):

Mike Perschon of Youth Specialties compares the four steps of Lectio Divina to “four levels of consciousness…which introduces you at each new level into a whole new world of reality” that occurs through the four levels of repetitious reading:

1- LITERAL LEVEL CONSCIOUSNESS
2- Moral level of consciousness
3- the Allegorical level which requires a Spiritual level of listening
4- We simply rest in the presence of the one who has used His word as a means of inviting us to accept His transforming embrace. We call this level, Union of Life or the unitive level of consciousness.
-An Experience of Lectio Divina

The reference to these steps can no longer be found as the Youth Specialties article is no longer there. All you will get if you click on the link now is the OOPS page. Nevertheless, whether it has disappeared or not, Mike Perschon himself commented on Wolf Tracks under my article on Lectio Divina and did not disagree with these steps or the practise of Lectio Divina. Here is what he said:

“I’d just like to clarify that I’ve been misquoted here. I didn’t write the website regarding the four steps. I was asked by Youth Specialties to do an introductory article on various contemplative practices, and I linked to certain pages I deemed to represent the practice well. I didn’t write it though. That said, I don’t disagree with it, and I would like to further clarify by saying that I do not espouse Lectio Divina as THE way to knowing Christ. As an academic and former pastor, I am devoted to studying the Bible within its contexts, and understanding it in a very rational way. But I find that Lectio Divina enlarges my experience of the Bible. It’s one of many tools I use in my walk with Christ. And I’m not suggesting it replaces grace, as some have supposed elsewhere.”

We would like to give Perschon the benefit of the doubt, but as it is interesting that while Perschon says he was misquoted, he admittedly does NOT disagree with these 4 levels of consciousness. It’s difficult to check back to read exactly what he said because the page is now blank, and the article that I used to pull his quote from has been shifted over. It has been moved, and given a new URL…

This is where it was:
http://www.youthspecialties.com/articles/topics/spirituality/contemplative.php
This is where you can find it now:
http://www.youthspecialties.com/freeresources/articles/spirituality/contemplative.php

Apparently missing from the article is the reference to the 4 levels of consciousness, however, the link to Cell of Peace remains. Perhaps I copied and pasted incorrectly? Could be. But then, how can this ever be proven? Is the moral of the story to copy/paste/save everything we find? Who has time for that?

The point of bringing these particular things to light is this. Why would Mike Perschon say he was misquoted, but also say that he agrees with the quote anyways? Is he feeling bad about leading youth to a new level consciousness instead of leading them to the truth? Is he sort of covering his tracks?

In another Youth Specialties article Mike Perschon wrote (here):

Morton Kelsey refers to the experience of contemplative prayer in all its forms as entering a “laboratory for the soul.” While this phrase entices me with its sense of adventure, it frightens most believers. For too long, evangelical Christianity has packaged faith in safe bundles.

I’m sorry Mike Perschon, but the reason this “frightens” most believers is that this is not of God, and the only “safe” place to be is under the shelter of His wings. He is our strong tower. This is why we must stay away from practices that might open our minds up to the darkness of the spirit realm and doctrines of demons, but you are leading youth away from God, in this mad laboratory experiment devised by Satan, and into darkness.

In conclusion, there will surely be more covered tracks as the delusion unfolds and sticky web of apostasy is woven. In the meantime, some might say, why bother with all this, let’s just read God’s Word and stick to the truth. While this is very VERY good advice, and I totally agree, God’s Word also instructs us to reprove and expose what is in the darkness.

11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

Ephesians 5:11

Maranatha!
