The Charismatic world has been full of the false from its
inception. Being a
Classical Pentecostal for fifty-six years has given me the
privilege and heartache of watching their development.
While no great movement of God goes without attacks from
within and without, the Pentecostal revival that started in 1906
has touched tens of millions around the world.
The Charismatic deception was planned by the enemy,
Lucifer, to infiltrate and destroy the Pentecostal churches.
It has almost totally accomplished that for which it was
intended. It is an
unquestionable fact that good, undiscerning, born-again
believers have been unwittingly involved.
Three things that were a part of its inception were based on
utterly false premises.
Doctrines, the established heart of fundamental truth,
was ignored and even belittled.
It didn’t matter if you were Catholic in doctrine, even
Jesus Only, Mormon, or held any other theological position.
Every doctrinal idea was accepted as being equal.
Bible doctrine was out, but the gifts of a spirit were
Kuhlman was a star to them and embodied the heart of the
movement. When the
whole Word of God is not supreme, the Holy Spirit is not
Speaking in an ecstatic tongue or utterance was central stage.
This presumed gift was at the heart of the movement and
quickly became the door that everyone had to enter.
The very idea of ecstatic speech was reduced to a
People were helped along the way by being told to just start
forming sounds and they would turn into the gift.
“Repeat after me” was a totally acceptable teaching tool.
The utterance quickly developed into chants that the
crowds did in concert.
I literally walked out of such events with an eerie
feeling of evil in the air.
Please understand that I believe in the real nine gifts
of the Holy Ghost, but I do not tolerate the false.
The third false foundation of this movement was an utter
rejection of a separated life.
Many of the main movers and shakers hated the holiness
heart of the Pentecostal churches.
The great truth of sanctification and godly separation
from the worldly life has been the rock solid roots of the
The Holy Ghost will not dwell or manifest His glory in an
unclean temple. All
of this purity and devotion to Biblical standards was purposely
rejected, downplayed, or downright attacked as the situation
allowed. Today, the
most absurd and godless lifestyle is championed and acceptable
throughout the Charismatic world.
Look at Todd Bentley, the present star (Spring 2008),
with his tattoos and the rings in his face, along with an entire
abuse of decency to see how far the purity of life has
Those three main characteristics have been allowed and promoted
until we now have this ultimate trickster, who claims himself a
prophet of God.
Todd Bentley is so absurd that the only way he could be accepted
is by the thirty (30) plus years of conditioning.
He is grotesque and diabolical.
His departure from even basic truth and cultural norms
leaves the wise despairing at such insanity.
Can you imagine a prophet of the true Jehovah God who is almost
totally covered in tattoos which his “god” told him to get?
He has rings in his ears and on his chin.
As he prays for people, his main words are, “Bam, Bam,
Bam.” The results
are ecstatic, bodily motions that range from sexual gyrating to
This spirit does not make you wise; it makes you unwise.
There is only one thing that ties this false prophet to the
kingdom of God. He
represents every false doctrine, emotion, and action that I have
documented in the false invasion of the Charismatic world.
Some of his actions go back before the Charismatic period
when it was all called Pentecostal.
(Please do not confuse this with Classical Pentecostals.)
Mr. Bentley is a kind of culmination of every false
doctrine or idea that has plagued the Pentecostal people and
When Pentecostal churches -- Church of God, Pentecostal
Holiness, and the Assemblies of God, etc. -- were solidly rooted
in Holy Scripture, and men like Todd Bentley and the persons he
is emanating came along, they were almost totally rejected and
exposed. They were
usually reduced to a small crowd or totally removed from the
day has changed as the Charismatic world has influenced the
formerly great Pentecostal organizations.
We will try to look at key persons and the doctrines they
reflected that are now manifest in Todd Bentley.
I will not go all the way back to Azusa Street in 1906
because I am not a historian and would need hours of research to
do justice to this argument.
Let’s start with William Branham, one of the biggest
names connected with deception and error.
His meetings were attended with great signs and wonders,
which he attributed to his angel who gave him his power.
He was a Jesus Only proponent that called the trinitarian
truth a doctrine of the devil.
Todd Bentley is apparently claiming that the same angel,
who accompanied William Branham, helps him and performs miracles
The name Todd has given this female angel is Emma.
First, there are no female angels in Holy Scripture.
Angels were created before men and women, and the female
gender has no place in the angelic world.
The fact that women are helpmates for man is plainly
stated in the Holy Bible.
The name Emma is associated with many dark occultic
movements and presents its own false realm.
A little research will take you into a world of much
confusion connected to her name.
She certainly has no kinship to the work of Christ and
His kingdom. Emma,
if she even exists, is a fallen angel or a nephilim spirit.
Evangelist A. A. Allen, who died in the 1950s, also has a place
in Todd’s theology.
I watched a short segment of Mr. Bentley, where a woman was
standing before him showing him the oil in the palms of her
hands. He clearly
accepted this manifestation as coming from the presence of the
anointing in the meeting.
Rev. Allen was fairly big during the forties and fifties,
but slowly fell into disrepute.
He was the first false prophet that I remember hearing
about when I was converted to Christ as a young teenager.
While the acceptance of Rev. Allen was very marginal, I do
remember some sincere saints in my home church that became quite
upset when I plainly stood out against the false signs he
represented. I was
too young to even open my mouth, but I confess that I had not
learned the same.
To see Todd Bentley embracing this heresy of sixty to seventy
years ago is prophetic of the coming judgment of such departure
Satan never gets a free hand from the Creator of this universe
and His infallible Word.
Truth will triumph.
Paul & Jan Crouch are the two most effective of all false
prophets and false prophetesses of this generation.
They are not far ahead of Pat Robertson, Jim Bakker, and
Benny Hinn; but win the prize by the extent of their influence.
Gold dust that is claimed by Paul & Jan Crouch is also
claimed by Todd Bentley.
I personally watched and listened to a video in which
Paul explained to Benny Hinn the source of the gold falling on
his garments and that of Benny Hinn.
Paul claimed that the doorway into the Golden City of New
Jerusalem or some part of Heaven had been left ajar.
The dust had fallen out of the door and floated down on
these two men.
Until my Father removes the second heavens between heaven and
earth, that’s a long way for gold dust to fall (a few million
Benny Hinn is going to need to upgrade his techniques because
Todd Bentley is stealing them.
The demonstrations of Mr. Bentley are very similar to
Benny Hinn. They
both are ready to send fire on people, which they claim is an
anointing of God.
Above all of the false prophets, there is none that has gone so
far from truth as Rick Joyner.
He claims that he goes to Heaven and talks with Apostle
Paul. He is best
described as a strange astronomical traveler.
When Rick met the Apostle Paul on his (apparent) first
trip, he started telling the apostle what a delight it was to
meet and see him.
The great apostle supposedly rebuked Rick Joyner to tell him it
was his pleasure, not Rick Joyner’s.
Todd Bentley cannot allow any one of the past greats in the
false realm to be more famous than him.
Read carefully as he really tells a fantasy tale about
one of his trips into the same astronomical realm,
“…. I actually saw the Apostle Paul
come walking toward me onto the bridge. … He was short, not more
than 5'1” or 5'2”.
He was bald except for a little crown of hair that came around
his head. Looking
very Jewish with a short, trimmed, white beard, my first thought
was of a monk in a monastery!
He actually had jolly cheeks and I thought: Paul you’ve
got a little weight on you!
I mean he wasn’t fat but he looked a little pudgy!
He sat next to me and he took his hand and placed it
across my chest not saying anything.
But I felt like I was receiving an apostolic blessing
from a father.
While he touched my chest, Abraham and David appeared out of the
cloud of witnesses.
Although they were very close (and yet somehow at a distance),
they weren’t the main focus.
They were simply there as witnesses to an encounter.
Next, Paul spoke to me without words spirit to spirit.
I never heard one word but I had instant knowledge of
what he was saying.
He said that David and Abraham are true fathers —
‘These are the apostolic fathers’— and I thought to
myself: Why Abraham and David?
He answered me by saying that there would be no gospel
“As I just stated, Paul told me that essentially there
would be no gospel and there would be no
Israel without Abraham.
He said too, that there would be no gospel without David
would be no divine Son of David in order for the kingdom and His
throne to be built upon the throne of David.”
“Next, I was at Paul’s house and he said to eat the Book
of Titus! What’s
more, several days later I was taken back into heaven to Paul’s
house! But this
time I didn’t go inside.
I stayed outside where I saw a ladder in his back yard
like the one described in Genesis 28, Jacob’s ladder.
[I've come to understand that there are ladders like that
in heaven in order to ascend and descend into different realms
because heaven has places, geographical places.
For example, the first heaven is where we live on the
earth; the second heaven is the invisible realm of Ephesians
6:12; and the third heaven where I was with Paul, it's the
Paradise of God.]
So I jumped onto the ladder and began to climb up into another
realm. I saw around
me that it was all clouds so I began to pull those clouds back.
As I did, a hole opened up in the heavens.
Immediately then, out of heaven, flowed the color green,
not just a light; it was like a green liquid and it was pouring
onto my eyes! When
I asked God about this, He said, ‘You are coming into the throne
room; you are beneath the sea of glass; there is a rainbow
around the throne.
It’s not just above the throne; it’s a circle around the throne,
a rainbow, emerald, green in color.’”

If this does not show the insanity of this man, I am
helpless to teach you the truth.
We could continue to show a connection to the Kansas City
Prophets, Bob Jones, Mike Bickle, Paul Cain, or Ruth Heflin.
Todd Bentley is a culmination of an endless list of false
teachers and prophets/prophetesses.
Kathryn Kuhlman started an ecumenical movement, but at
least stayed in the broad context of the Judeo-Christian faith.
The final end of all of this abuse of truth and the
Pentecostal people is to add the occult realm to the mix.
Todd Bentley is mixing the entire realm of the underworld
with his version of revival.
It’s Time For The Father
personally believe that the end of what we call the Charismatic
movement is at hand.
There certainly will follow echoes of all that is
happening, but the Father has never allowed the devil to have
the last word. The
devil and his servants will be put in their proper place.
At every point of history from Genesis to Revelation, our
Heavenly Father has appeared to put it all in perspective.
In the Book of Revelation the great God saw this day
coming and announced His plan, “Behold, I will make them of the
synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do
lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy
feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also
will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come
upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth”
Please notice that this appears to happen right before the
religious facade will be accountable to truth.
The Remnant Saints, who refuse to bow or bend, will be
acknowledged by this unholy mixture.
No one that I have ever met can hate you quite like this
Their love is giddy sweet when they woo you and as bitter as
hell when you reject them.
A large number of good saints have testified of the hate
and rejection they received when they refused to submit to this
error. This is why
the Bible-believing saints will be the great company that error
will be required to face and to whom they will be required to
confess their departure from truth.
The Latter Rain Will Fall
The Book of Joel and the Book of Acts give us the absolute
promise that the false revival and noise of the current closing
moments of the Charismatic deception is not the end.
Here are Peter’s anointed words of what is yet to occur,
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will
pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions,
and your old men shall dream dreams:
And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out
in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the
earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke”
My friends, rebuild your altar.
Get ready for the Holy Spirit to give the final answer to
the foolishness of men.
His visitation will be sweet but powerful.
It will be mighty but orderly.
It will be full of emotion but divine.
Best of all, He will come for His saints in the midst of
