More On Ecumenism-Tony Blair Starts Faith Foundation With Rick Warren As Advisor

No comments:
What better makings for an anti-christ One World Religious system could we have than Tony Blair from the Roman Catholic Church and his newly formed Inter-Faith Religious Foundation, the Pope/Vatican who believes that aliens are our brothers and human beings evolved from apes, and Rick Warren with his pluralistic, seeker friendly, purpose driven UN agenda to put it all together?

*******
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Friday that leaders in an interdependent world must work to end religious conflict or face "catastrophe" as he introduced a new foundation dedicated to interfaith understanding.

Religion is as important in this century as political ideology was in the last, Blair said. The Tony Blair Faith Foundation will fight extremism, organize faith groups against poverty and illness, and educate people worldwide about religions other than their own, he said.

Blair, who stepped down from office last year, recently converted to Roman Catholicism.

The group's advisory council includes evangelical megapastor Rick Warren, who with his wife, Kay, advocates for HIV/AIDS victims worldwide; Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the prime minister of Kuwait; and world Baptist and Jewish leaders. Catholic Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor of Westminster, England, has pledged to join the council when the pope allows him to retire.

The Purpose Behind The Florida 'Outpouring' From a Brother in the UK

6 comments:
Todd Bentley and the Lakeland Revival have drawn attention from people all over the world. I am encouraged to see so many people drawn to my website from all around the world seeking information about what is happening in Lakeland. Another brother out of the United Kingdom has also been reporting on the Lakeland Revival and his input is here , for those who are unaware of this, with an excerpt following:
  • Colossians 1:18And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the pre-eminence.

If we want to find out what the purpose of this revival is, we need to look at what is being taught by its leaders. You might be forgiven for thinking that a spiritual revival in the Church would result in Christians coming into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. This is not the case with the Florida Outpouring. In fact Bentley says that God has specifically instructed him not to teach people about Jesus Christ. Instead he believes that God wants him to teach about "the angel".

Bentley related this fact at one of his meetings. "God, why do I want people to believe in the angel?", he questioned, "Isn't it about getting the people to believe in Jesus?"  Even Bentley seemed surprised by this unusual request from the Father. The response came back, "The people already believe in Jesus, but the Church doesn't believe in the supernatural". You will not see Bentley read from the Scriptures. You may not even hear him talk much about God or Jesus Christ, despite all the miracles that seem to be taking place. But you will hear him talk about angels and the supernatural. And so it seems that the purpose of this revival is to get people focused on the supernatural.

Hundreds Of New Testaments Torched In Israel

No comments:
Messianic Jews Discriminated Against and Persecuted in Israel
Orthodox Jews Burn New Testaments

Another twist of events in the case of the New Testament burning in Israel has occurred.  It now appears that the attorney for the Messianic Jews, Calev Myers, who is filing a formal complaint Thursday, states he doubts the Jewish missionaries handed out the New Testaments.  So how did they get into these homes?

"Myers, however, said he doubts that Messianic Jewish missionaries distributed the New Testaments. He said it's not clear how the volumes found their way into homes in Or-Yehuda."

Hundreds of New Testaments Torched in Israel


(CNN) -- Police in Israel are investigating the burning of hundreds of New Testaments in a city near Tel Aviv, an incident that has alarmed advocates of religious freedom.

Investigators plan to review photographs and footage showing "a fairly large" number of New Testaments being torched this month in the city of Or-Yehuda, a police spokesman, Mickey Rosenfeld said Wednesday.

The episode has worried defenders of Israel's minority population of Messianic Jews, who consider themselves Jewish but believe in the divinity of Jesus, as do Christians. It also has concerned evangelical Christians in North America, Europe and Asia, who visit Israel by the hundreds of thousands.

Calev Myers, an attorney for Messianic Jews in Israel, told CNN he plans to file a formal complaint Thursday with the national police at the request of the United Christian Council in Israel, an umbrella organization for a few dozen Christian organizations outside Israel.


"I hope the people who are responsible for breaking the law will be indicted and prosecuted," he said.

Myers said his complaint will ask the authorities to investigate possible violations of two Israeli laws. One forbids the destruction or desecration of any religious icon or item that a group holds sacred. Another bans people from speaking publicly in a way that offends or humiliates a certain religion.

Both laws are meant to prevent people from inciting religious violence, he said.

The burning controversy has unfolded against the backdrop of other instances that Myers cited as examples of discrimination against Messianic Jews in Israel.More at link

Moses V. Komsky has come up with a scheme to keep all three major religions happy and his idea is to build a temple on the Temple Mount where the Hebrew Patriarch Abraham offered up Isaac; however his plan not only makes room for the Dome of the Rock, but also the three major religions with their "mystical components." The only problem with Komsky's scheme is that it is out of touch with the plans the Creator God has for His Son Jesus Christ, who will rule out of Jerusalem, Israel when he returns.

New Testament Burning- Messianic Jews Persecuted In Israel

No comments:
Caught in the act?? Deputy Mayor of Or Yehuda, Uzi Aharon at the synagogue, holding one of the Christian NewTestaments and Literature Packages that were burnt --



I found an unbiased account coming out of the Israeli news media Haaretz, of the New Testament burning by the Orthodox Jews written as an editorial in the Haaretz , with other recent noteworthy events concerning the Messianic Jew persecution in Israel which have been reported right here, that I think is worth sharing with my readers.

Shas' book bonfire

By Haaretz Editorial

On the occasion of Shas' annual Lag Ba'omer celebration, the party introduced a new custom burning copies of the New Testament. The initiator of the book burning, Or Yehuda deputy mayor Uzi Aharon, claimed that it was a spontaneous act, an angry protest against missionary activity being reported in the city. Among the witnesses to this "spontaneous act" were schoolchildren. A reporter from Maariv documented the event.
Supporters of the bonfire said they were preserving the honor of the Jewish people, and the fire was meant to rid the town and entire country of Messianic Jews.In the Jewish state, they said it is forbidden to disseminate Christian holy scripture. The burning of Christian holy books in Or Yehuda is especially worrisome in light of the continued harassment of Messianic Jews in the country. Their homes are set on fire, they struggle to earn a living, and just two months ago, a 15 year-old boy was seriously hurt when what he thought was a Purim gift package blew up in his face on the doorstep of his family home in Ariel.

Just this past Independence Day, the religious community threatened to boycott the annual World Bible Quiz because of the participation of a young girl from a Messianic family, as if knowledge of the Bible necessitates belonging to the Jewish religion, or any other religion. The Messianic Jews number a few thousand in Israel, and as long as they do not stalk children or try to convince them to change their religious beliefs, their standing in this country should be equal to that of other religious and ethnic groups who enjoy freedom of practice and worship as stipulated in the Declaration of Independence and protected by law.

The indifference to their persecution attests to the treatment of minorities in Israeli society. If it were Jewish holy text rather than Christian books that were burned in some European country, it is safe to assume that the leaders of that country would fall over themselves in rushing to condemn the act, all the while they are painted with the broad brush of anti-Semitism.

In Israel, the coalition's survival depends on Shas, the rabbis support the book burning, though do so quietly, and all that is left to do is to await a decision by the attorney general to bring to trial those responsible. Any kind of significant public statement against the persecution of groups for their beliefs is not in the offing. The burning of religious books connotes horrific events from the past that are difficult to erase from memory. In 1933, the Nazis incinerated the works of Germany's great Jewish literary figures, gathering the public to watch burnings in Berlin's Opera Square. A monument designed by Israeli artist Micha Ullman stands at the square as a chilling reminder of the event and what followed. Throughout history, people of faith have burned religious books of other faiths. Mao Zedong burned Buddhist books, just as the Taliban did a few years ago.

A democracy must not tolerate behavior that is considered normal in totalitarian regimes. The concern is that the persecution of Messianic Jews is rationalized by a twisted interpretation of Jewish sovereignty, as if we were dealing with something resembling an Iran-like enterprise whose raison d'etre was taking revenge on the gentiles. If the deputy mayor of Or Yehuda remains in his post, it will only strengthen the perception that the persecution of minorities has not been discontinued due to its revolting nature. As long as Shas produces the likes of Uzi Aharon, the lighter of the bonfire, it must be viewed as a full participant in this act

Orthodox Jews Begins Talks With Christians

No comments:
The Israeli Orthodox Jews  are to begin talks with Christians and this could have a profound positive effect upon the messianic Jews persecuted in Israel providing it is not connected with and sponsored by the apostate Roman Catholic Church and Rick Warren's purpose driven seeker friendly pluralistic UN religious agenda, which is to push for ecumenism to bring all "religions" into a one world religious system. 

It is uplifting to hear of the orthodox talking in a civil manner with reference to the Christians of Israel after the recent New Testament burning by the Orthodox in Israel.  However, I think we need to take a wait and see attitude before making any final conclusions in light of the persistant persecution by the orthodox Israelis towards the messianic Jews of Israel.  Read about it below...

In an unparalleled historical development, a major Orthodox Jewish institution has announced its decision to begin theological dialogue and fellowship with Christians.

Shlomo Riskin, Chief Rabbi of Efrat, Israel, and founding member of The Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding & Cooperation, said that the center would help bridge gaps between Jews and Christians while emphasizing their common heritage and shared Judeo-Christian values that emphasize harmony, the sanctity of human life and dignity, and world peace.

"Both Judaism and Christianity have profound messages for the world and each must speak to humanity and to each other,” he explained.

The center will be hosting joint seminars for Jewish and Christian scholars and theologians on topics as diverse as salvation, messianism, and Jewish-Christian relations.

EVANGELICAL LEADERS Promote New Age -Eastern Spiritual Practices

No comments:
Did you know that evangelical leaders are promoting New Age Eastern Spiritual Practices that is now spreading like a wild fire among denominational Christian churches including your Baptist denomination?

Evangelical Leaders Promote New Age and Eastern Spiritual Practices

In what appears to be a sweeping phenomenon, Christian leaders are embracing practices and a new spirituality that borrows from Eastern mysticism and New Age philosophy. The changes are taking place worldwide and involve many of the most popular evangelical leaders including Rick Warren, Brian McLaren, Richard Foster, Tony Campolo, and Eugene Peterson.

In Rick Warren's Purpose-Driven Life, on Day Eleven, he encourages people to practice "breath prayers" by repeating words and phrases over and over in a mantra-style prayer, a practice used centuries ago by a group of mystical monks known as the Desert Fathers. This so-called "prayer" is identical to that found in Hindu yoga and Zen Buddhism.

Brian McLaren, leader of the emerging church movement has been caught with his hands in the contemplative cookie jar too by endorsing the back covers of some more-than-questionable books. One in particular, Reimagining Christianity by Alan Jones says that the doctrine of the Cross is a vile doctrine. Alan Jones is an interspiritualist and mystic in every sense of the words.

Take a look at the Living Spiritual Teachers Project, of which Jones is involved. This group of about twenty includes Zen and Buddhist monks, New Agers and even Marianne Williamson and her Course in Miracles. The goal of this group is to integrate other world religious beliefs into Christianity. McLaren has also endorsed the back covers of Dave Fleming's The Seeker's Way and Tony Campolo's Speaking My Mind, both of which believe that Christianity is too limiting, and a union between other religions is necessary. In Speaking My Mind, Campolo states: "[M]ysticism [contemplative prayer] provides some hope for common ground between Christianity and Islam." (p.149) More here

Thousands of representatives of the world’s religions will convene in Australia for the 2009 Parliament of the World’s Religions.

An estimated 8,000-12,000 people will meet in Melbourne, Australia, Dec. 3-9, 2009, to dialogue, build interfaith relationships, and discuss critical issues facing the global community.
Adherents of a wide range of religious traditions will be present including: Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Baha’i Jain, and Zoroastrian.

“The Parliament event is a place where people come together to encounter ‘the other,’” organizers state in the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions (CPWR) website. "This encounter can lead to a deepening of one's own sense of religious and spiritual identity and an appreciation for the challenges or difference within one's own tradition, as well as between and among traditions."

The 2009 Parliament will feature 500 events such as dialogues, workshops, performances and plenaries on religious identity.

Emerging topics for the gathering include social cohesion, poverty, the environment, indigenous peoples, and terrorism. Other issues that will be address are indigenous reconciliation, environmental degradation and care, gender issues including sex trafficking, education and the challenge of social disengagement, forced migration, global terrorism, and the role of religion in modern societies.

PASTOR Passes Away After Deemed Healed At Lakeland 'Revival'

Story here

  • Anyways the real reason I decided to post on here was because of a dear friend of mine who passed away this morning at 5:20 AM. His name is Pastor Larry Reed, Pastor of Olympic View Assembly of God in Silverdale, Washington.

Last week on 5/18/08 he was in the sanctuary there in Lakeland trying to find the healing he soo much wanted, sitting in his wheel chair in front of Mr. Bentley, he was deemed as "healed" when Pastor Larry stood up and cheered in victory. During the course of last week when he returned, he got worse and so this morning he died.

TODD BENTLEY-LAKELAND REVIVAL-Where Is All The Documented Medical Evidence of Healings Taking Place?

No comments:
I found another most revealing testimony here from another eye witness who has been attending Todd Bentley's Lakeland Revival'. Being in the medical profession, I can certainly appreciate what she is saying which brought me to question here 'where is all the documentation of these "thousands of healings". "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." I Thess. 5:21.   By all accounts, it is apparent that God's Word is not a priority here and what we are now looking at is another big satanic hoax.

  • I have attended this revival for many weeks. In fact, I have been there since the second night of Todd’s meetings (4/2/08), long before this became “revival”. Initially, I was so excited to see God move in such a mighty way. I was encouraging my pastor, several other pastors that I know, many friends and family members to “come and see what God is doing.” There were few times when I was uncomfortable with what was happening in the meetings, but I figured that I was just being critical and reminded myself that God’s ways are not my ways. I continued to support this revival, even after I heard my own pastor voice his concerns. I was quite vocal about these misgivings others had. I continued to defend Todd, God, etc., etc. More here

LAKE FOREST, Calif. - Megachurch pastor Rick Warren recently launched a global coalition of pastors, business leaders and other institutions that aims to tackle what he deems as the most pervasive problems in the world today.

Warren went public with the initiative at the end of the three-day Purpose Driven Network Summit last week hosted by his home church, Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif.

The P.E.A.C.E.Coalition will be an international alliance of churches, businesses, ministries, universities, and other institutions who will work together to address five "Global Giants" that affect billions of people worldwide: spiritual emptiness, lack of servant leadership, extreme poverty, pandemic diseases, and illiteracy.

The acronym for the plan is based on the five actions Jesus modeled: Promote reconciliation; Equip servant leaders; Assist the poor; Care for the sick; and Educate the next generation. More here

Rick Warren's secular social gospel "in the name of Christianity" has destroyed churches all across America and around the world in favor of a seeker friendly, purpose driven agenda, is in full force, and is largly responsible for the "emergent" church movement. While Warren attempts to credit Jesus for his plan, a discerning look at Warren's P.E.A.C.E. plan shows that Jesus of the Holy Bible has nothing to do with Warren's plan.

Rick Warren, unapologically admits that he is a member of the CFR, an organization dedicated to the formation of a One World Government system, and is helping to bring about the One World Religious system spoken of in Revelation Chapter 13.

In fact, Warren added, ''as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Oxford Analytica, I might know as much about the Middle East as you.''

TODD BENTLEY Video Shows 'Kundalini Effect' Full Force

1 comment:

Here is another link to yet another shocking video from the Lakeland 'revival', which shows the effects of Kundalini 'energy' in Todd Bentley.
  • Kundalini EffectDangerous, Demonic and Deceptive SourceKundalini Syndrome: "[A] complex pattern of motor functions, sensory, affective and cognitive-hermeneutic symptoms called the Kundalini Syndrome. This psychosomatic arousal and excitation is believed to occur in connection with prolonged and intensive spiritual or contemplative practice (such as meditation or yoga). ...
    (from En-Wikipedia.org)
    "Kundalini (kuṇḍalinī कुण्डलिनी) Sanskrit, literally "coiled". In Indian yoga, a "corporeal energy" - an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force or Shakti, envisioned either as a goddess or else as a sleeping serpent coiled at the base of the spine, hence a number of English renderings of the term such as 'serpent power'. Kundalini is considered a part of the subtle body along with chakras (energy centres) and nadis (channels)
Kundalini energy is satanic. Todd Bentley has said "I used to feel the anointing" in my hand; now I feel it in my spine."

PAUL EDDY Takes Stand Against Church of England

No comments:
Kudos to Paul Eddy for being a voice in the wilderness and taking a stand for Jesus Christ and against the state sponsored religion-- Church of England. The apostate Church of England can't come to terms with what the Holy Scriptures declare about salvation being through Jesus Christ and Him alone. Story here from The Christian Post.


  • Senior church leaders as well as some Muslim figures have voiced anger at the motion proposed by Paul Eddy – a lay member of the church’s General Synod, according to BBC. Eddy, along with traditionalist Anglicans, argues that the church should stop avoiding hard questions about its beliefs.


  • The Church of England must make it clear that it believes in what the Bible says about Jesus being the only way to salvation, he said. Currently training to become a priest, Eddy believes that being upfront about the church’s beliefs will be helpful to Muslim-Christian relations.


  • “Most Muslims that I’ve talked to say, ‘I really wish that Christians would stop watering down their faith and expecting us to do the same,’” Eddy said on BBC Radio Four on Sunday. “Until we start really saying what we really believe in our faith, there will be no respect.”

A True Miracle That Puts Todd Bentley's Fake To Shame

No comments:
Talk about signs and wonders, here's one for ya coming out of New Zealand that puts Todd Bentley's counterfeit revival to dhame. 

It just so happened that two Christian pilots ran out of fuel in mid air, immediately prayed to God for help, and landed safely next to a 'Jesus Is Lord' Sign.  Now that's a "sign!"

Here

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - It seemed like an almost literal answer to their prayers. When two New Zealand pilots ran out of fuel in a microlight airplane they offered prayers and were able to make an emergency landing in a field — coming to rest right next to a sign reading,"Jesus is Lord."

Grant Stubbs and Owen Wilson, both from the town of Blenheim on the country's South Island, were flying up the sloping valley of Pelorus Sound when the engine spluttered, coughed and died."My friend and I are both Christians so our immediate reaction in a life-threatening situation was to ask for God's help,"

Stubbs told The Associated Press on Wednesday.He said he prayed during the ill-fated flight Sunday that the tiny craft would get over the top of a ridge and that they would find a landing site that was not too steep — or in the nearby sea." Wilson said that the pair would have been in deep trouble if the fuel had run out five minutes earlier."

If it had to run out, that was the place to be," he said. "There was an instantaneous answer to prayer as we crossed the ridge and there was an airfield--I didn't know it existed until then."After Wilson glided the powerless craft to a landing on the grassy strip, the pair noticed they were beside a 20-foot-tall sign that read, "Jesus is Lord-The Bible." "When we saw that, we started laughing," Stubbs said.Nearby residents provided them with gas to fly the home-built plane back to base.

TODD BENTLEY:'Get The People To Believe In "The" Angel'

No comments:
  • "I told the Lord why can't I just move in healing and forget talking about all that other stuff?" "Because, Todd, you have to get the people to believe in the angel." I said," god, why do I want people to believe in the angel? " "Isn't it about getting people to believe in Jesus?"  He said, "the people already believe in Jesus, but the church doesn't believe in the supernatural."

In this short video clip, you will hear Todd Bentley saying "his god" told him to "get the people to believe in "the angel."  After you have listened to the video, go  here to see who "the angel" Todd Bentley is talking about.

 Where in the Bible are there instructions to "get the people to believe in "the angel?"  The answer is simple.  Nowhere.  The salvation message of Christ crucified to save sinners in the same for every generation.

Todd Bentley clearly shows that he preaches another gospel out of the New Age occult, which really isn't new at all.  It dates back to Adam and Eve in Genesis Chapter 3 when the serpent deceived Eve, convincing her to eat of the forbidden fruit and said: "Ye shall not surely die; For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."

The Apostle Paul's warning in Colossians 2:18 concerning angels needs to be taken seriously as it  is very applicable today concerning what is going on at Lakeland.

BENTLEY: THIRTEEN WISE VIRGINS TO CARRY REVIVAL FORWARD

No comments:
More shocking 'extrabiblical' revelations are happening in Lakeland. Slaughter of the Sheep has discovered the following from the Lakeland Ledger:
  • I promise you I’m not making this stuff up! This just gets more bizarre by the minute!
    Below is a snippet from an article in The Ledger, talking about the “Florida Outpouring” that is taking place in Lakeland, Florida.
    “Tonight, visiting evangelist Todd Bentley says he has been told by a prophet, Bob Jones, that 13 wise virgins would carry the revival forward. So Bentley calls teenagers up to the stage and “anoints” them, touching them and watching many fall backward, a practice Pentecostals call being “slain in the Spirit.” It’s just the beginning of an hours-long service.” Source.

JESUS DEATH MASK-TODD BENTLEY-WITCHCRAFT TATOOING-KANSAS CITY PROPHETS

1 comment:
Take a look at the satanic body tatooing Todd Bentley has smeared all over his body and ask yourself why would any true Christian pay thousands of dollars to advertise satan after he got saved? That's right, Todd Bentley obtained these satanic tatoos shown at Jesus Death Mask after he got saved and was supposedly preaching the gospel. Leviticus 19:28 specifically reads "Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD." I shouldn't have to say this as it goes without saying that a person truly born again who has the living Spirit of God inside of him would not place satanic tatoos on their body after they are saved. Here are more close up pictures of Todd Bentley's satanic body tatooing.

Who is Todd Bentley's mentor Bob Jones and the Kansas City Prophets that have had so much influence on Todd Bentley that we have heard so much about? It appears that this shady bunch has a history of bad fruit that took place back in the early 1990's that many attendees at the freak show in Lakeland are not even aware of. Now, I am not one to point out one's sins of the past, but my intent is to expose these false teachers and false prophets with the hopes that others will be spared and not be lead astray since their evil works have been repackaged and are now being carried on through Todd Bentley.Slaughter of the Sheep has written quite a shocking and impressive resume on this bunch known as the 'Kansas City Prophets' which you can read at the link provided.

Earthless also raises some excellent questions that compel Christians to examine in the light of the Holy Scriptures, which I will set forth following. Keep in mind these are all outrageous claims, teachings and "signs" made and/ or promoted by Todd Bentley and/ or "spiritual manifestations" incurred at these type of "healing revivals" promoted in the charismatic circles:

1. How many Christians in the Bible experienced trips to the ‘third heaven’, and where does the Bible promote Christians visiting the ‘third heaven’
.2. Where is the spiritual gift or manifestation of barking and squawking in the Bible.
3. How many times are trances mentioned in the Bible, and where does the Bible promote trances as part of the Christian walk and a method to receive visitations and special messages.
4. Where does the Bible promote revelation beyond God’s already revealed Word.
5. Where does the Bible list a ’seer anointing’ as a gift of the Spirit
.6. Where does the Bible promote going beyond the power of God’s spirit… ever.
7. Where are we told Biblically that the only way to see spiritual blessings is to access and visit heaven, and bring them back with us.
8. How many times did Jesus and Apostles preach the message of angelic visitations, trips to heaven, trances, dreams, sanctified imagination, and financial prosperity.
9. Where is any of this in the Bible. Where is it taught and where is it promoted. I’m asking those of you that attribute this as a genuine movement of the Holy Spirit these questions in all seriousness. Please provide the scriptural references. Thank you.

When one knows God personally and intimately, there is no need to go looking for signs, trances, dreams, and visions and all of the "extrabiblical"/anti-biblical manifestations as Bentley promotes in his writings, teachings and "revivals"; as God makes His will clear to those who have a relationship with Him, and not in the maze of signs. When we look at our own lives and how we walk with Him and realize that in our lives, "Jesus is Lord," there is no need for the promotion of the above "extrabiblical"/anti-biblical signs and wonders, angel visitation, mystic visitations, and "thirteen wise virgins to carry the revival forward." Neither Jesus, nor his original Apostles and disciples promoted these teachings. As I have pointed out in an earlier post regarding signs and wonders, this special gift was given to Jesus' original Jewish Apostles by Jesus Himself to establish a foundation for His church and to be a witness of the truth of whom He is.

According to the Gospel of John 3:3-5, Christians are to live under the influence of the Holy Spirit and being born again of and being born again of the Spirit and having the Spirit dwell in us IS an absolute requirement to having the Holy Spirit control our lives . Paul writes that Christians are also commanded to "walk in the spirit" Galatians 5:16. The only possible way for any true Christian to live under the influence of and walk in the Spirit is by reading God's Word, the Holy Scriptures. If you have been following Bentley's "revival", as I have in the videos, there is no preaching of the Word and Bibles are not a part of this "revival". Jesus said in John 17:17:

"Sanctify them through thy truth: THY WORD IS TRUTH."

Jesus is telling us that the Word of God is Truth.

 Non-believers teach that there is no absolute truth, but that we each "create our own reality". But the Bible teaches that there is an absolute standard of Truth, and that is God's Word. This one conspicuous aspect of the absence of God's Word at this counterfeit revival alone is a dead give away.

 Paul tells us in Romans 8:9 "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is not of his.

Titus 3:5 tells us that "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost."

John Hagee-"Hitler Was Doing God's Work"

2 comments:
John Hagee has a notorious reputation for giving his own "version" and spin concerning the Holy Scriptures, which has its roots in the bad fruit of dispensationalism.

 Here, we have John Hagee asking "Why did it happen.?" "Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel." I have read the verses John Hagee is speaking of in Jeremiah 16:15 and onward and God's prophet doesn't say anything remotely compared to what Hagee is saying.

I suppose now John Hagee will soon announce he has been "misunderstood" or his words were taken out of context in his usual fashion when he gets caught with his hands in the cookie jar.

The Bible tells us that God is love. in 1 John 4:8,16 and there are several biblical verses in the Scriptures that give us God's definition of love; the most well known one being John 3:16 ~~ "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." God sacrificed His only Son so that those who believe and have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, would not spend eternity separated from Him. This is the most perfect love of all, but it is up to each individual to chose to be separated eternally from God because of our own sin, or to accept God's free offer to spend eternity with Him because of what Jesus Christ did for us.

How John Hagee can come up with the idea that Hitler was doing God's work is beyond my imagination.

Hitler created a systematic program to destroy the Jews because he was possessed with evil and influenced by centuries of long hatred for the Jewish people known as anti-semetism.

Sam Stein of the Huffington Post is reporting on this story. According to Hagee, Hitler was a "hunter" sent by God... read on.

John Hagee, the controversial evangelical leader and endorser of Sen. John McCain, argued in a late 1990s sermon that the Nazis had operated on God's behalf to chase the Jews from Europe and shepherd them to Palestine. According to the Reverend, Adolph Hitler was a "hunter," sent by God, who was tasked with expediting God's will of having the Jews re-establish a state of Israel.

Going in and out of biblical verse, Hagee preached: "'And they the hunters should hunt them,' that will be the Jews. 'From every mountain and from every hill and from out of the holes of the rocks.' If that doesn't describe what Hitler did in the holocaust you can't see that."

He goes on: "Theodore Hertzel is the father of Zionism. He was a Jew who at the turn of the 19th century said, this land is our land, God wants us to live there. So he went to the Jews of Europe and said 'I want you to come and join me in the land of Israel.' So few went that Hertzel went into depression. Those who came founded Israel; those who did not went through the hell of the holocaust.

"Then god sent a hunter. A hunter is someone with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. And the Bible says -- Jeremiah writing -- 'They shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and from the holes of the rocks,' meaning there's no place to hide. And that might be offensive to some people but don't let your heart be offended. I didn't write it, Jeremiah wrote it. It was the truth and it is the truth. How did it happen? Because God allowed it to happen. Why did it happen? Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel." (Listen to the audio below.)

The sermon, which was first posted by Bruce Wilson on his site, Talk To Action, adds another element to Hagee's controversial stance on the state and history of Israel. It also may provide a new round of political headaches for McCain who has admitted that seeking out Hagee's endorsement was a mistake, but still declared himself "glad to have" it.

A spokesman for Hagee confirmed the authenticity of the remark, which can be found at around the 1:08 mark of his sermon "Battle For Jerusalem."

TODD BENTLEY AND SUNDAR SINGH

3 comments:
Who is Sundar Singh?

Deborah, over at Discerning the World, has dug deep into his background and come up with some interesting research about Sundar Singh, the Indian Hindu mystic Todd Bentley basis much of his teachings on, but tries to repackage it as Christianity. For those who may not be aware of this 'wolf'', read on.

Sadhu Sundar Singh-Hindu Mystic in Sheep's Clothing 22 May, 2008--Deborah

I have come across quite a few ‘Christian’ websites who think that Sadhu Sundar Singh was truly a man of God. I’ve spent hours and hours reading about his life and his beliefs and I will say this, if someone knocks on your door dressed in a yellow robe preaching Jesus Christ, don’t open the door!!

On the surface it would appear that Sadhu Singh was truly a man of God, he was ostracised by his family for ‘converting’ to Christianity after he had a vision of Jesus Christ in his bedroom, he was Baptised, he took on the life of a Sadhu, barefoot, roaming from village to village preaching and he spent many a month in prison or thrown into a well for preaching the Gospel, until one day he just vanished into thin air (not in a mystic kinda way, no he left for a trip to Tibet and was not seen again). continued

****

Wikipedia also has an indepth background on the person of Sundar Singh, with references and anyone can research this out for themselves. Certainly this person does not remotely resemble anything that pertains to New Testament Christianity.

Take note of the reference made to "members of the Sunnyasi Mission, secret disciples of Jesus wearing their Hindu markings." There is no reference to Jesus ever having any "secret" disciples wearing Hindu markings in the Holy Scriptures. Jesus did not have any "secret" disciples, and this is most assuredly an extrabiblical/unbiblical occultic teaching.Jesus is the light of the world; he that follows him shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John's Gospel 8:12.

The word "occult" means things that are hidden, secret, mysterious or covered over. Deut. 29;29 in the Old Testament reads: The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. Clearly, this is something that a Christian is to flee from.From Wikipedia
  • Stories from those years are astonishing and sometimes incredible. Indeed there were those, who insisted that they were mystical rather than real happenings. That first year, 1912, he returned with an extraordinary account of finding a three-hundred-year old Christian hermit in a mountain cave-the Maharishi of Kailas, with whom he spent some weeks in deep fellowship.
    According to Singh in a town called Rasar he had been thrown in a dry well full of bones and rotting flesh and left to die. However three days later a rope was thrown to him and he was rescued. The difficulty with this account is that Singh is the sole witness to report this event. As Singh has been represented by some biographers as a suffering preacher, it is worth recalling that the three days spent down the well bears resemblances to the gospel narratives concerning the death and three days of burial for the Christ before his resurrection from the dead. [2]
    At these and at other times Singh was said to have been rescued by members of the "Sunnyasi Mission" -- secret disciples of Jesus wearing their Hindu markings, whom he claimed to have found all over India.
    One of the difficulties with the evidence to support this story of the secret Sunnyasi Mission is that this brotherhood was reputed to have numbered around 24,000 members across India.[3] The origins of this brotherhood were reputed to be linked to one of the Magi at Christ's Nativity and then the second century AD disciples of the apostle Thomas circulating in India. Nothing was heard of this evangelistic fellowship until after William Carey began his missionary work in Serampore. The Maharishi of Kailas experienced ecstatic visions about the secret fellowship that he retold to Sundar Singh, and Singh himself built his spiritual life around visions.[4]
    Whether he won many continuing disciples on these hazardous Tibetan treks is not known. Singh did not keep written records and he was unaccompanied by any other Christian disciples who might have witnessed the events.

“False Signs and Lying Wonders: The ‘Revival of the 3rd Wave” AUDIO
Join Randy Maugans at The Threshing Floor here


Todd Bentley, the ex-con signs and wonders whiz kid, promoted by the Elijah List, has spearheaded a movement of charismatic healing and miracles which is now bursting out of Lakeland, Florida. But…there are problems! We examine the unscriptural manifestations and survey the cast of characters—straight out of the old wineskin of the Kansas city prophet movement. The real agenda may be more mundane: money, fame, and power. Caveat Emptor!

“In May of 2008, (Paul)Cain spoke at a Lakeland, Florida “revival” meeting hosted by Todd Bentley. He declared that the meeting, which was held in a stadium, fulfilled a vision he had and that Todd Bentley was of the “new breed” and was the “spirit of Elijah”. The meetings are being touted as a healing revival. Ironically, in the days following the meeting, he suffered a stroke and was admitted to the hospital and is recovering.”-Wikipedia

Orthodox Jews Burn New Testaments,Israel Insider Publishes Article Calling New Testament Trash

No comments:
After the New Testaments were burned in Israel by the Orthodox Israelis, we now have the IsraelInsider publishing an article which calls the New Testament trash and garbage. What is the purpose of the IsraelInsider giving an orthodox Jew a PUBLIC MEDIA forum whereby he/she is allowed to spin and spew hatred toward Jesus Christ and the New Covenant other than to adversely provoke and incite others?

 This is one of the most irresponsible pieces of journalism I have witnessed coming out of Israel. If the people who took the New Testaments from the Messianics did not want one, they could simply have said no thank you, or given them to someone who did want one. Was it really necessary to publically burn the Christian Holy Scriptures? And to add insult to injury, publically call the Christian Scriptures trash and garbage after the fact?

Harrassed by Christian missionaries, Israelis Take Out TheTrash

By Penina Taylor May 21, 2008

It was reported yesterday by several major news outlets that recently the religious Jews of Or Yehuda set fire to hundreds of copies of the New Testament and other missionary propaganda. Ha'aretz called it "the latest act of violence against Christian missionaries in the Holy Land."

Calev Myers, attorney representing the Messianic communities of Israel called for the people who did it to be brought to trial. But brought to trial for what? The people who burned these books and pamphlets broke no law. Despite the allusions being made to the burning of Jewish holy books during the times of the inquisition or the holocaust, there is absolutely no comparison here. The New Testaments and evangelistic leaflets had been basically thrown out -- they were unsolicited garbage, and there is no law against incinerating garbage, even by religious Jews, even in public. continues here

This is not freedom of the press, friends; the Israeli Insider is being equally as immoral as the guilty one(s) who burned The New Testament for printing this twisted version of the facts and trashing The New Testament in their media.  Shame on them.

RELIEF DENIED TO BURMESE CHRISTIANS

No comments:
This is very distressing news coming from onenewsnow.com as of today, May 21. Please continue to pray for these persecuted brothers and sisters.
  • Relief Denied to Burmese Christians
    Allie Martin - OneNewsNow - 5/21/2008 11:55:00 AM

    The ruling military government, or junta, in Burma is being accused of denying relief aid to minority Christians.

    Because Christian Freedom International (CFI) has worked for years in the country now known as Myanmar, the ministry was able to provide relief to cyclone victims shortly after the storm hit. But now, ministry workers are accusing the Burmese military of diverting aid from areas heavily populated by ethnic Karen villagers. Jim Jacobson, president of CFI, says that move would be consistent with the longstanding policy of the military rulers. "There are people in Burma who have faced genocidal persecution ever since World War II," says Jacobson. "... [T]his is a regime that suppresses all of the people, but wages genocidal war against minority Christians .... it's an awful place." CFI is currently wiring donations for relief aid into Burma through its extensive network of underground house churches.

And from Christian Freedom International

  • Karen Cyclone Victims Still Denied Aid in Burma

    Wednesday, 21 May 2008 15:31
    Latest instance of the Burmese government’s genocidal effort to eliminate the mostly Christian ethnic group.SAULT STE. MARIE, MI – (CFI News) -- After days of worldwide pressure in the wake of Cyclone Nargis, Burma’s military government has finally eased restrictions on the delivery of international relief aid into the country. On Monday, the junta granted permission to its Asian neighbors to oversee the distribution of foreign aid to storm survivors, and also approved a visit to the region by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. According to government officials, the death toll from Cyclone Nargis has now risen to over 78,000, with 56,000 others still missing.


But even as desperately needed relief aid trickles in, ethnic Karen survivors are reportedly still fending for themselves in various parts of the country. ***With no foreign or government aid of any kind being delivered in Karen-populated areas, thousands of victims are going without the most basic of necessities; many are sleeping on the ground with little more than plastic sheets. continued at link.***

TODD BENTLEY IMPARTS ANTI-CHRIST SPIRIT

1 comment:
I came across a most excellent description and explanation of what is going on at the Lakeland "Revival" with Todd Bentley that I would like to share with all of my readers. LaVrai.com writes the following with biblical references which indeed give us keen scriptural insight and discernment into what is happening at Lakeland. I highly recommend reading this writing as you will become more aware of the satanic delusion that is upon those attending and involved in this "revival" and the urgency of the times we are now living in.
  • Todd Bentley Imparts Anti-Christ Spirit
    I am concerned about this impartation and anointing going on with Todd Bentley’s ministry. I’ve watched some of the videos and I have seen on GOD TV his service and him in action. Bentley never clearly explains what this anointing is and what it is exactly that he is imparting. He only says what its effects are, which are healings, dreams, visions, etc., and the ability for those who receive this anointing to be able to impart it to others. In this post, I attempt to understand what this anointing is and what exactly Bentley is imparting to the throngs at his services, who come from all over the world to experience him and what he has to offer.

This is the video which I base most of my observations on, and I also excerpt some text from Bentley’s writings on his Web site to gain a better understanding of what he is anointing people with and imparting to them continued.

TODD BENTLEY, LAKELAND 'REVIVAL' AND SUNDAR SINGH VISION

4 comments:
Recently, I reported another very strange manifestation has occurred involving Todd Bentley and his Lakeland "healing revival " in Lakeland, Florida.When I reported here this story on May 7, (False Healing Revival in Lakeland) quoted in part following, I linked to Bentley's website where the story continued, exposing his involvment in mysticism.

THE GLORY CLOUD OF REVELATION & PROPHETIC MANTLES - PART 2: CONCLUSION Date: June 19, 2006This is the conclusion of a two-part series by Revivalist and Founder of Fresh Fire Ministries, Todd Bentley, entitled, The Glory Cloud of Revelation & Prophetic Mantles. In a vision, Todd saw the Glory Cloud of Revelation—the cloud of Isaiah 11:1, 2, and Revelation 4:5 come upon the Church body—that is, the cloud that is the fullness of the Holy Spirit, the seven Spirits of God. The Lord also showed Todd in the vision, an old Punjabi sadhu (holy man), by the name of Sundar Singh, who lived in India and evangelized throughout the world over a hundred years ago. CONTINUED. NOTE TO ALL MY READERS: I have today, May 15, 2008, observed that "The Glory Cloud of Revelation" by Todd Bentley from his link and website that I provided that exposes Todd Bentley's involvement in mysticism has been removed.

A big thank you goes to Living In The Way Church and Living Journey websites for locating the missing link that suddenly and mysteriously disappeared from Todd Bentley's Website. It appears Bentley or his associates are now shuffling his mystic involvement to other places, making them disappear. For all my readers, I'll post it here again as it reveals and confirms Bentley's occultic New Age Mysticism/contemplative prayer involvement and endorsement, which the Bible warns against, as he masquerades around Lakeland as Christian deceiving the naive.

From Fresh Fire, here is the entire article by Todd Bentley:

THE GLORY CLOUD OF REVELATION & PROPHETIC MANTLES ~ PART TWO: CONCLUSIONBY TODD BENTLEY, FRESH FIRE MINISTRIES

  • THE CHRISTIAN CONTEMPLATIVE TRADITION (LECTIO DIVINA)
    Sundar Singh spent at least two hours daily in reading the Scriptures, meditation and prayer. He would arise at 5:00 am and finish by 7:00 or 8:00 depending on what his schedule was for the day. He often spent the whole day or night in prayer. His discipline was to read one chapter of the Bible, rapidly at first reading, then to return to reread passages or verses that were more suggestive to him. These he would linger with and meditate on for as long as it was fruitful for him to do so. Next, he would enter into a period of “recollection” for twenty minutes or so. This was a time of silence, in which he would allow the Lord to speak to him in some way. With his own mind and heart quieted, he opened his mind and his heart to hear what the Lord would have to say to him or just simply enjoy companionship with his Lord. Often this period of silence would extend into a deeper state called “contemplation” in which he enjoyed complete rest and refreshment in the love of God. continued at link

The Bad Fruits Of Christian Zionism, CUFI And John Hagee

No comments:
I believe we are now seeing the bad fruit of Christian Zionism and I'll tell you why. There are millions of Christians who give to secular Israel through CUFI, Bridges For Peace, Int'l Fellowship of Christians and Jews who support Israel, headed up by Zionist John Hagee , and other Zionist leaders such as Rabbi Eckstein, in the name of "Christian" while our Christian Messianic brothers and sisters within the land of Israel are persecuted and never see a penny of any of the vast donations that are given to the orthodox Jews by well meaning Christians in America and around the world and who are the very people persecuting our Messianic brothers and sisters in Israel.

To give you a broader understanding of what I am saying, istandwithisrael.com explains it very well, and the next time you prepare your donation to send off to any of these secular organizations no matter if it be Bridges For Peace or CUFI or Int'l Fellowship of Christian and Jews, that operate "in the name of Christian", or humanitarian in Israel, you may wish to consider what has been written on istandwithisrael.com

"As we have opportunity, let us do good unto all men, ESPECIALLY UNTO THEM WHO ARE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH." Galatians 6:10.

Orthodox Israeli Youths Burn Hundreds of New Testaments-May 20, 2008

Orthodox Jews have burned hundreds of New Testaments in the latest act of violence against Christian missionaries in Israel.

Uzi Aharon, the deputy mayor of the central Israeli town of Or Yehuda, says he got into a loudspeaker car last Thursday and urged people to turn over hundreds of New Testaments and missionary material recently distributed by missionaries.

The books were dumped into a pile and religious students set them afire in a lot near a synagogue, he said.
The Maariv newspaper reported Tuesday that hundreds of students took part in the book-burning.

But Aharon told The AP on Tuesday that only a few students were present and he was not there when the books were torched. Hundreds of New Testaments were burned, he said.

Proselytizing is frowned upon in Israel but is not illegal in most cases.

  • THE GLORY CLOUD OF REVELATION & PROPHETIC MANTLES - PART 2: CONCLUSIONDate: June 19, 2006This is the conclusion of a two-part series by Revivalist and Founder of Fresh Fire Ministries, Todd Bentley, entitled, The Glory Cloud of Revelation & Prophetic Mantles. In a vision, Todd saw the Glory Cloud of Revelation—the cloud of Isaiah 11:1, 2, and Revelation 4:5 come upon the Church body—that is, the cloud that is the fullness of the Holy Spirit, the seven Spirits of God. The Lord also showed Todd in the vision, an old Punjabi sadhu (holy man), by the name of Sundar Singh, who lived in India and evangelized throughout the world over a hundred years ago. CONTINUED NOTE TO ALL MY READERS: I have today, May 15, 2008, observed that "The Glory Cloud of Revelation" by Todd Bentley from his link and website that I provided that exposes Todd Bentley's involvement in mysticism has been removed.

Could it be that Bentley is now trying to hide the fact that he is involved in mysticism and contemplative prayer, which goes directly against Biblical teachings since more and more people are getting wind of this fraud?

ISRAEL:BUSH'S BIBLICAL REFERENCE SPEECH TO KNESSET RILES PALESTINIANS

No comments:
Even though President Bush got his biblical facts a bit twisted, I find this story somewhat amusing and hypocritical. While God in the Old Testament does indeed promise to give the land of Israel to the Jewish people, honoring His covenant which He made through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Bible also tells us that at some future point in time "all" nations will go against Israel, and that means good ol' USofA. While the speech sounded good, the USof A under George Bush's leadership has already betrayed Israel and the people of Israel with his endorsement and pushing for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which gives the heartland or biblical land of Israel known as Judea-Samaria or the West Bank over to Israel's enemies, so I regret to say, George Bush is no friend of Israel.
*****
Bush's Biblical References Rile Palestinians
When US President George W. Bush punctuated his speech before the Israeli Knesset on Friday with biblical rhetoric reaffirming the Jewish people's right to the Land of Israel, the Palestinian Arabs betrayed the fact that they have no tolerance for Jewish sovereignty in the region at all, even if they speak of coexistence in front of international media.

In his address to Israeli lawmakers, Bush spoke of the "promise of God" for a "homeland for the chosen people," and said the "bonds of the Book" between Jews and Christians meant that America would always stand by Israel's side.

Bush also described Israel's and the United States' battle against Hamas, Hizballah, Al Qaeda and Iran as a "battle of good against evil." Continued

A TRIBUTE TO IRENA SENDLER

No comments:
Very little has been said of Irena Sendler, the World War II Christian Saint, until recently so I decided I would honor her by mentioning her and her life sacrificing works here. She indeed fulfilled the law of Christ, giving herself and her very life to others so that they may live, knowing that any moment her very own life could be taken from her by the Nazi Gestapo.

A New Commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you ae my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:34,35.

Well done, good and faithful servant, Irena.

Righteous Among the Nations award recepient and rescuer of 2,500 Jewish ghetto children in Warsaw, Irena Sendler has been laid to rest at 98 years of age. Story Here

CHRISTIAN LEADERS LAUNCH "WE GET IT GREEN" MOVEMENT

No comments:
This is a perfect example of how Christian leaders have lost their way in spreading the truth of God's Word and have lost touch with the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. Rather than uniting and occupying and taking the Good News of Christ's Message of Salvation to their neighbor and a dying world, they are preoccupied with spreading the "truth" about global warming, climate and political messages, which isn't the Gospel Messege of Christ at all. What we need in these perilous times we live in are more men and women committed to Jesus Christ, who alone can bring hope to a lost and dying world, rather than the God of religion, science, politics, and this world.

It goes without saying that Christians are to be good stewards of everything God has given us to use and that includes the planet. I suppose these global warming "Christians" think and believe global warming caused the great flood in Noe's time too? Where is God-given common sense being applied here? Global warming is a smokescreen, a lie from the pit, to conceral the signs of the times we are now living in known as birth pangs and the beginning of sorrows in the Bible that Jesus said would happen just before his return.

Paul warns us in Colossians 2:8 to "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ,"
****
Christian Leaders Launch 'We Get It Green Movement' Evangelical pastors, scientists and policymakers have launched a petition drive intended to spread the truth about global warming: That Christians should be good stewards of God's creation and that government policies and regulations based on "faulty science" will hurt people who should be helped.

"The 'We Get It' declaration speaks for me, and I believe it speaks for the vast majority of evangelicals, who are as tired as I am of being misrepresented by people who don't bother to get their theology, their science or their economics right," said Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.). continued here

Vatican Newspaper: Aliens Are My Brother

No comments:

This is A HUGE statement coming out of the Vatican. What we have here is the Vatican setting the foundation and preparing the world for the great deception that is soon to come.

If you follow the New Age Movement and the rise of the ascended masters, this fits very well into the one world religious system that they believe is coming very soon. Rome is setting the foundation for the greatest deception the world has ever known. The deception we are seeing in the counterfeit Lakeland healing revival is nothing compared to what is coming. That this is coming from the Vatican is no big surprise to me, but to say that these aliens are our brothers, that did shock me a bit and it shows how very close to it we are.

Story Here

The Pope's chief astronomer says that life on Mars cannot be ruled out.
Writing in the Vatican newspaper, the astronomer, Father Gabriel Funes, said intelligent beings created by God could exist in outer space

The official Vatican newspaper headlines his article: 'Aliens Are My Brother'.
