Volume 22, Issue 3

Dear All,

I am sending out another alert on Todd Bentley since so many churches are sending people to get something from him and this stuff is fanning out all over the world.  If you think that what Bentley is dishing out is from the Lord and people should have him to lay hands on them so they can get an "anointing" perhaps you had better view the following video first:


The stories this guy tells are even beyond the nonsense that has characterized the Toronto Blessing, Brownsville and other counterfeit revivals. I have seen all this before and Bentley is obviously lying with a straight face about miracles and dead raisings he claims to have performed, and I mean PERFORMED.  Bill Randles is right when he states that what we have here is a modern Simon the Sorcerer.

In Christ,
Sandy Simpson

The feature articles for this newletter are a continuation of articles on Todd Bentley and his "revival" in Florida.  Bentley and crew, including Randy Clarke of Toronto "Blessing" fame, recently came to Oahu as guest of the Moanalua Missionary Church, and over a hundred local churches sent representatives to those meetings to get his "anointing".  Please read the following articles on Bentley to warn your church against this false prophet and false teacher.

Todd Bentley by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason Ministries, 5/20/08 - The Todd Bentley "revival" in Florida.  Read Part 1 - “Meet the new thing- same as the old thing” “Will We get fooled again?”, Part 2 - To be Forewarned is to be Forearmed, Part 3 - A Story of Earth and Heaven, Part 4 - When the Angel came - The Branham connection, Part 5 - The fire- Fresh Fire, Part 6 - The Fire as an ANOINTING- Experiences of  a baptism of fire, the pillar of fire and what the bible has to say on this & Part 7 - Angels we have heard and seen- Are we to be visited by angels and have heavenly experiences?

Todd Bentley’s Diabolical Signs by Jackie Alnor, ApostasyAlert, 5/11/08
If you’ve been watching the news on "Christian Television" in the past couple of weeks, you could not have missed the glowing reports of a "revival" breaking out in Lakeland, Florida. It is headed up by a certified false prophet/teacher by the name of Todd Bentley, one of the guys from the infamous Elijah List, an umbrella group that markets all the bogus "prophetic" junk their many seers sell. Many of these forerunners for the antichrist are heralding this outbreak as the much-touted outpouring of the latter rain. {If you think I'm speaking harshly, keep reading to understand why I can't mince words.}

Todd Bentley or Jesus Christ? by Bud Press, Christian Research Service, May 20, 2008
Todd Bentley claims to have seen Jesus Christ, but it was not the Jesus of the Bible.

Todd Bentley - The New Simon Magus by Pastor Bill Randles, Believers in Grace Ministries, 5/26/08
It seems to be happening again, The false prophets are once again ‘making God’s people trust in a lie’, the people are not blameless, for once again as in Jeremiah’s day;”  The prophets prophesy falsely, the priests bear rule by their means, and my people love to have it so, people love to have it so, but what will you do in the end?” (Jer. 5:31)



Through the years I have been presented with many opportunities to forgive. Sometimes the situation was so severe that it took me some time to forgive and start the process of healing for myself, and eventually for others. I learned that a Christian needs to forgive other people even if they have not repented of their sins. That can be really hard if we let it be hard. But if we give our burdens over to the Lord, He will carry them and that frees us up to treat other people with love, compassion, and be in the right frame of mind and heart to set them up for reconciliation with Jesus Christ. That does not mean we tolerate their sin. We simply forgive them for what they have done to us, whether perceived or real, and move on to looking for ways to redeem them. We can then present to them the “truth in love” even when we have to rebuke them.

Landmark New Book!

Does having eternity in your heart mean that you know God and are His child? Could Gentile cultures understand the Gospel from the stars? Did God create man’s cultures? Has God always been in the process of redeeming cultures from the time of Babel by placing in them a true revelation of Himself? Is there the worship of YHWH in all cultures and religions through the names of “supreme beings”?  Have all cultures always had a way to make things right between them and God? These questions and many more are answered in this book that addresses the teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People movement.
