This is a topic I’d like to look at and hopefully discuss with anyone who wants to jump in.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. 1Samuel 15:23a
Scott, at his blog NorthWest Musings, has posted the link to an interview done recently in Seattle, WA with a few who know or are acquainted with Bentley and his life and ministry. PLEASE listen to this interview:
Perhaps I am out of the loop, but what I heard really surprised me. I had no idea that the action which instigated that horrible clip we have heard all over the internet of Bentley screaming out over and over, ANGELS ANGELS ANGELS, and ENCOURAGING others to join him in yelling this out, was a result of and done in defiance of a warning given to him by Rodney Howard-Browne the very day before.
I remembered when it is mentioned in this interview, that Todd, directly prior to going into the Angel rant, had made mention of someone telling hm he should not speak of Angels, etc…but I never had a clue he was referring to R.H. Browne. Is the fact of his lying to Browne and doing this in a direct act of defiance against his admonition why we are not seeing R. H. Browne more actively involved in Lakeland?
And what about that ‘prophecy’ last week concerning R.H. Browne, which came forth from James Goll when filling in for Bentley? Rodney Howard Brown 3rd Wind hitting his sail. Sounds like someone’s trying to mend some broken-down fences.
Folks, Todd Bentley is not only a liar (he even lied to Brown) but is in rebellion, and in my opinion has a demonic spirit OF rebellion operating in his life. He is unteachable, and listens to no one. That is my conclusion after listening to this interview. It was said he has a problem with father figures–which may very well explain why no one can reach him.
Rebellion is the spirit of anarchy, and associated with and connected to the spirit of anti-christ.
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 1 John 2:18
And Rebellion and Pride caused Lucifer’s fall:
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Isaiah 14: 12-14
Ask yourself if its not possible this ‘contagious impartation’ he is spreading is not in fact a spirit of rebellion.
Todd Bentley needs to be delivered and set free.
