Sonshine,Welcome to SI! I hope you will be blessed and enriched by this site.
I spoke with my Pastor also and he doesn't see any need to renounce this "revival" as he says it's way too much like chasing rabbits as it would never end for him if he started. He told me he does agree with Rick Joyner although he didn't understand why he had gone and commissioned Todd Bentley. After doing my homework on Rock Joyner I find he too is just another false apostle. I have checked out so many who are tel evangelist and the like and find myself more and more appalled. I have been blind as I came into being a Christian through a charismatic church and I've seen things from time to time that I just didn't agree with as it didn't line up with what I seen in the word of God. but then I saw it only in part and now I see it all very clearly. I have told my Pastor I no longer want to be identified with the charismatic movement and his answer surprised me. But in all I am not surprised as I believe the Lord shown me beforehand about this great apostasy, I just have many relationships in my church and have grown to love so may of them with a pure heart. However God knows all things and also knows those that are His and will deliver them also in time. I'm home today from church as I cannot in truth go back to my church until I know without shadow or doubt that they separate themselves from all this deception. 2 Jn 9-11 I simply see it like this and want nothing to do with it as I truly do love God, His word, and want to be part of the group who are called the few by Jesus Mt 7:13-14 I think that if my Pastor would just think for a minute about what he said in ref to chasing rabbits then that should be indication enough that all these big time ministries are not following the Lord Jesus of the bible but their own pernicious ways.
In the light of the current National exposure that Bentley's received, I thought this a worthy post to see for any that may yet think there is fruit for God here. Please see Sermonindex's original post with verifying video. This is from Hades.
According to Todd Bentley's ministries own website www.freshfire.ca Todd and his wife Shona are currently separated.I am convinced that this a counterfeit revival that has deluded many. Now it has taken a toll on the man himself. I do not want to gleefully scorn this man or ill-wish him. May God use this situation to bring this man to repentance and restore his family.narrowpath
I checked out his site and under 'profile' is this: "Todd Bentley, his wife Shonnah and three children, Lauralee, Esther and Elijah live in Abbotsford, BC, Canada."I could not find anywhere that it mentions a separation. Where did you see it?ginnyrose

Thanks! I found it.Seems odd to me that if the Holy Spirit is at work that this stress would cause conflict between married people....ginnyrose
