Anytime you want to stir up a heated debate in christian circles, just bring up the latest “revival”. People will become polarized in their opinions very quickly. Some want to toss each and every revival out the window and chalk it up to being “the work of the devil”. Others want to embrace each revival with open arms, regardless of the character of who is “headlining.” [Read More]
I was doing some more research on the Lakeland Revival and stumbled upon this message on the Elijah List web site dated April 23, 2008 (at the “peak” of the Lakeland Revival). Apparently nothing could stop that revival either ….
“June 22 to July 22 will be a significant time in the spirit. (Todd didn’t elaborate on this period.) This Revival will NOT be stopped.” [Read More]
Around 2000-01, Steve Shultz was an avid supporter of Todd Bentley, shamelessly promoting Fresh Fire whenever he had the chance. Todd Bentley was removed from the web site(s) soon after the Lakeland fiasco occurred and hasn’t been added back to the site since. My guess is that, due to the sheer embarrassment, Steve doesn’t want to touch Todd Bentley with a 50-foot pole. I could be wrong, but if past behavior is any indicator, Steve will do anything to preserve the reputation of the Elijah List. [Read More]
God moving among His people is a beautiful thing … and I’m all for forgiving ANYbody of ANY sin. But have you asked yourself why, all of a sudden, there’s this HUGE fanfare over a Todd Bentley event? Other ministers have had “revivals” … God.TV never “gate crashed” their schedule for them. What gives? [Read More]
When the message of a modern-day “prophet” begins to resemble that of occultists … it’s time to beware. Consider …. [Read More]
When some of us picture a false prophet, we imagine an evil, sinister man (our woman), maliciously rubbing their hands together as they devise a wicked scheme to rob some poor, defenseless widow out of her last few dollars. Others may picture a historical person like Nostradamus, who grew quite popular for a time, but had a terrible track record.
According to Jesus’ own Words in Matthew 7, both of these pictures are very in accurate. [Read More]
Prophecy is no joke. The words of a prophet are meant to birth repentance in the hearts of wicked nations, foretell the future and inspire hope in the hearts of the Righteous followers of Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, we have strayed far from a scriptural definition of prophecy. [Read More]
Because people desire a “have-it-your-way” supernatural experience, they are prone to seek supernatural fulfillment through carnal (sensual) means. Trained by the world (and from the pulpit) to pay attention to, and feed, our “senses”, they feel they’ve encountered a “the Spirit of God” when their senses are tickled by ANY supernatural force.

In order to understand “the prophetic” from a biblical standpoint, it would make the most sense to look at the behavior of prophets of the bible. Prophets were always a spokesperson for God, calling the children of Israel back to obedience to His commandments. Their behavior could be classified as “odd”, especially when you look at prophetis like Ezekiel and Isaiah, but the “end goal” of their demonstrations was always to display Israel’s unfaithfulness, the punishment that would result from that unfaithfulness, and the benefits that could follow IF they repented.

After reading the latest word from Kim Clement, I am amazed at how a person can be so right …. and yet, at the same time, so wrong. December 1, 2012 – From The Den: “From the beginning, before time began, I knew this hour; I knew this day. Was it hidden from Me? Am I afraid?” says the Lord of Hosts. “Even if Israel stood alone, watch. Read the history. Before time began, I knew of this moment and I knew that from the miry clay would emerge an upright reed. From the mire, I will bring something upright and something good.” [Read More]
