A Word in Due Season

Todd Bentley Coming to the Valley.

This week, on June 8-12th Valley Harvest Church in Neenah will be hosting two speakers named Todd Bentley and Jeff Jansen at a conference they are calling the Midwest Outpouring. For those of you who do not know who Todd Bentley is the Nightline segment that aired in July of 2008 gives you a good synopsis of his past and what moved him to the global stage.

Todd Bentley is a Canadian “minister” who is known for the Lakeland Florida “revival” that hit the global scene in 2008.  As his meetings in Florida began the Lord spoke to me about what was going to happen with Todd and the men who surrounded and supported him.  The Shouts of Joy newsletter article and the comments written during that time address the focus the Lord was having me attend to and prophecy about: http://www.shoutsofjoyministries.com/articles/SpeakTheTruth.shtml

The “revival” in Lakeland ended when the revelation of Todd’s affair with his children’s nanny hit the news.  The Nightline segment posted above, exposing Todd and his inability to produce even one legitimate, verifiable healing and his inability to produce any paper work that accounted for the money pouring in at Lakeland is said to be the impetuous for the closing of the event.  Shortly after he left Florida he divorced his wife and married the woman he was having the affair with that had begun before the “revival”.  A few months later Rick Joyner of Morning Star Ministries claimed Bentley was being restored and he had him back in the ministry in seven short months from the time Bentley’s affair was exposed.

 In December of last year I had two meetings with the leadership of my church and in those meetings I prophesied to them that the Lord wanted me to warn them that Todd Bentley would be coming to the Fox Valley with Jeff Jansen through Vidal Torres’ church, Valley Harvest.  The Lord told me that Todd would be carrying a powerful demon with him.  I was told to tell the leadership of the churches in the Valley to take a stand against these meetings and rebuke the demonic spirit coming in with Todd.  Here is a link to the sermon that Pastor Tim Snell preached about these meetings http://www.ccvappleton.com/content.cfm?id=332

This is another sermon preached by Pastor Kathi Rose from Evangel in Neenah on May 29, 2011 about the same issue:  “Pastor Prophets, Prophecies & The New Prophetic Movementhttp://www.evangelworshipcenter.com/sermon_audio.htm

These Pastors do a great job exposing what is wrong with the movement that Todd belongs to and the unethical nature of his ministry, however, what the Lord is calling me to do is to expose the demonic influence on Todd and how he carries this demon into a region and releases it there.  Then those worshipping this demon through the attending to it that goes on in the meetings give it a strong hold in the area.  The most recent vision that I have had about Todd was in Rwanda on March 9, 2011:

 Todd is not an idol, he worships an idol. We are not to name this demon but it is a demon and it is powerful and it is in the church.

Their time is short. But God wants to teach the church how to expose it.

The Holy Spirit said, when you draw a line in the sand you don’t discuss it because then you haven’t drawn the line. When you prophecy you draw the line. Now you draw the line.

Tell them that I will not engage with them.

Call the people back – call the sheep back. It’s not about them (Todd Bentley and the men standing with him) it’s about my sheep – call the sheep back – wall them off.

Then I was given the scripture Zech. 10.1-5

1Ask rain from the LORD

in the season of the spring rain,

from the LORD who makes the storm clouds,

and he will give them showers of rain,

to everyone the vegetation in the field.

2For the household gods utter nonsense,

and the diviners see lies;

they tell false dreams

and give empty consolation.

Therefore the people wander like sheep;

they are afflicted for lack of a shepherd.

3 “My anger is hot against the shepherds,

and I will punish the leaders;

for the LORD of hosts cares for his flock, the house of Judah,

and will make them like his majestic steed in battle.

4From him shall come the cornerstone,

from him the tent peg,

from him the battle bow,

from him every ruler— all of them together.

5They shall be like mighty men in battle,

trampling the foe in the mud of the streets;

they shall fight because the LORD is with them,

and they shall put to shame the riders on horses.

There has been a group of us in the Valley praying about Todd coming this June.  We have been asking the Lord what we need to do to get the word out and warn the people. Please join us in prayer about this issue.  I will be posting on my Facebook wall when and where we will be meeting to pray again before the conference begins if you want to join us.  Please pass this on to everyone that you know who may be attending this event.  If you have any comments or questions I will post this message to my blog as well and will answer any questions there in the comment section.  May God have mercy on the Church for what we have allowed to be called anointed and holy.
