I know this article is a tad late, but I beg you if you went to see Todd Bentley on his South African Crusade Tour with “Prophet Zion
Matthew” in Durban, followed by visits to the Solid Rock Church in Johannesburg run by Johan van Wyk (who got into a bit of trouble by the Advertising Standards Authority over “miracle healing” adverts), Jabulani Camp Site in Bronkhorstspruit, then Worcester (hosted by YWAM) and finally to Cape Town at Lighthouse Ministries and Celebration Covenant Church International which belongs to the NCMI group headed up by Tyrone Daniels…..please, please, please ask Jesus for forgiveness for going to see this false teacher and ask Jesus to remove any demonic spirit that might have been transferred to you at these meetings. Todd Bentley’s doctrine is out of the pit of hell and this is where his ‘fire’ comes from as well.
A short history of Todd Bentley: Todd started the Lakeland Outpouring back in 2008 in Lakeland Florida which I watched from the beginning to it’s dismal end. The ‘revival’ was run by a heavily tattood man by the name of Todd Bentley but in the background you had Apostles and Prophets from the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) holding things together, namely, Super Apostle C. Peter Wagner, Rick Joyner, Bob Jones (Kansas City Prophets), Mike Bickle, Paul Cain, Che Ahn, Lou Engle, Stacey and Wes Campbell., Dutch Sheets, Patricia King and many others. Magazines like Charizma Magazine promoted the revival and Wendy and Rory Alec from God TV gave it ample air time.
The revival was a circus of lies, and a means to transfer the Kundalini FIRE spirit over the thousands upon thousands that attended each night and the millions that watched via streaming online. Todd Bentley supposedly ran a “Christian revival” where millions were supposedly healed instead it was a cover where millions of dollars were collected. Todd would punch people in the stomach to heal them, he even kicked a man diagnosed with cancer in the stomach so that he would be healed and hit an old women because God told Bentley to, ”slap her in the face”.
Todd Bentley hits old woman (1:28)
Todd had a ‘healing’ angel called Emma who did all the healings (not Jesus Christ). Only when Emma showed up could he get his power to heal people. Todd told the audience on numerous occasions about his strange demonic visions he had (which he thought were quite normal). He had the most bizarre visions of trips to heaven; stuffing their pockets with gold from Heaven’s Treasury room. He had a vision where he saw a hindu mystic Sadhu Sundar Singh meditating in heaven, in another he saw Abraham, David and the apostle Paul, but the worst was of a vision of an Angel cutting his stomach open with a chainsaw, removing his insides and filling the space with little white boxes. I kid you not.
Bentley was constantly drunk in the spirit, shaking, convulsing and lying through his teeth. He performed a blasphemous baptism where he baptised people in the name of the Father, the Son and the BAM, or the name of the Sheeka BoomBa Bam or nothing at all!
This is a shocking video of the satanic Sheeka BoomBa baptism. Listen at 1:24 how his voice changes into a growl when he baptises one guy.
Wendy Alec from God TV sent Todd Bentley a prophecy;
in which she told Todd that Jesus Christ would personally set foot on his stage on the night of the 8th June 2008. Well of course Jesus Christ never showed up and they had a whole host of stories as to why not.
|Script from 3:02s
Todd Bentley: “I’m telling you right now, I believe that people can receive impartation. Now, let me tell you the prophetic word that, that Wendy [Alec] gave me, for those watching. And, this is, this is why I believe tomorrow night’s meeting–if you live in, you live, you’re watching me on the internet and you’re local, and you can be here Sunday night. Listen to this:
At this point, Bentley reads Wendy Alec’s ‘prophetic word’: “The Lord just spoke to me and said, ‘This is what will happen tomorrow night. The King and the King’s anointing falls tomorrow night. The 8 June, the anointing of the King of glory falls.’”
“Jesus said, ‘I am coming in person. The King is coming in person.‘ I sense so strongly there will be a personal, divine visitation of the Lamb of God–the Lord Jesus Christ to the revival tomorrow night.”
“He will come in the clouds in His chariot, surrounded by a great angelic host, because the great honoring of the Lamb of God. The King of glory is coming to visit Lakeland; to visit the revival; to visit the outpouring. The devil trembles with that knowledge.“
“For tomorrow, the King of glory sets foot upon the stage in divine, personal, one-to-one visitation.“
Todd Bentley then states: “Now, for all those watching and even that just don’t understand the nature of the prophetic, though I’m open to a, the Lord can appear. Now, I’ve seen the Lord. I’m not suggesting there’s going to be a physical, flesh, Jesus Christ on the plat[form]. I hope, I hope you understand, we’re talking about in atmosphere; we’re talking about in spiritual experience; we’re talking about in impartation.”
“Now, now, Roy, if tonight and last night’s worship is any indication that something is changing in the realm of the glory; something about the King of glory.”
“Oh God, we wanna set a place up in the throne of our hearts, more than anything else, for you to come and visit! Come on! Who wants to have the King come in His glory?! Come on! Lift up…” (And the audience cheered)
He claimed 32 people were raised from the dead during the Lakeland outpouring but when crunch time came for these people to come forward, none did (must be because they are still dead – just a thought). He challenged the media to test him and his ‘move of god’ until suddenly ABC Nightline did just that. Todd handed them a huge file filled with the contact details of people who had been healed. ABC nightlight contacted them all, they could not find a single healing – they were are lies. (Can Satan Heal?)
The Apostles and Prophets tried to rescue the revival by holding a RITUAL ceremony and anointed Todd Bentley as an “Apostle” within their ‘order’, thinking people would fall for their so called ‘godly’ decree over him that would bring him wealth, health, power, holiness, happiness, and many other glorious things, in the name of ”The Lord”; Geroge Banov even read scripture that was meant for Jesus Christ over Todd Bentley. But there were too many secrets that were about to come out into the open, like for instance the fact that Todd was having an affair with a woman (a staff member) who he would canoodle with after each nights running marathon of conning the crowd to ‘praise the lord’. The alcohol would flow as well.
After the Lakeland outpouring came crashing to the ground, Todd Bentley divorced his wife and married this woman whom he had an affair. Rick Joyner (a Freemason/Knight of Malta occultist) took Todd under his black wings for forgiveness and restoration. Todd faded into the darkness and is now re-emerging in places that don’t know much about him like South Africa and the whole of Africa for instance.

Todd Bentley – Restored and Changed (for the worse)
“When one goes through the kind of restoration Todd has been through over the last year and a half you usually come out stronger in basic Christian disciplines and character than ever. I feel that is certainly the case with Todd. However, I was surprised by the depth, power, and the impartation of the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit that was immediately present when we released Todd into limited local ministry…” Rick Joyner – The ElijahList Email”
”Check Out These Todd Bentley Events” May 15, 2010
According to Rick Joyner, Todd has been restored, forgiven and has returned a genuine Christian.
This is what Todd said back in Lakeland in middle of 2008. It was shocking that he did not want to preach about Jesus:
This is what Todd has to say now in May 2010:
Um yeah…. I can definitely see a change…for the worse.
Todd Bentley has not been restored or forgiven, he is the same Todd Bentley as before, except he is wiser as he has been mentored by occultist Rick Joyner. Todd Bentley is as dangerous as they come, a dangerous dangerous wolf in sheep’s clothing. In fact this wolf is so brazen he took his sheep’s outfit off revealing his tattoo’s and is showing you his teeth and glowing red eyes and hell fire – will you be the one to fall for his lies? It’s so obvious the man is false!
Please see the why the calling down of FIRE and the person of Holy Spirit are TWO different things:
The calling down of Fire from heaven over a congregation, or praying Fire over someone is the norm in the church today. It has come to resemble the early heretic Gnostic churches. Religious ecstasy (or Kundalini) was to be found in the mystery religions of the first century A.D.. Back when the Corinth church seemed to be a hub of pagan Gnostic knowledge and ran rampant in unscriptural and immoral practices; the Greek mystery religions had prophets who babbled in unknown tongues which were caused by a Kundalini awakening.
Below is a table explaining the differences between The Biblical Holy Spirit compared to The Kundalini unholy spirit that masquerades as the Biblical Holy Spirit. This table is exhaustive and contains everything you need to know: —> The Biblical Holy Spirit vs.The False Unholy Spirit of Fire
Please see an explanation of the following scripture which false teachers twist to try back up the use of FIRE: Matthew 3:11-12 “Indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” —> Fire of The Holy Spirit – Judgment or Anointing?
