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]
Rick Joyner, the founder of Morningstar ministries, restored Todd Bentley to the Ministry way before Todd was fully restored as a person.
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.

Recently, I read a fantastic excerpt from a book entitled “Wandering Stars” by Keith Gibson. I haven’t read the whole book yet, but I thought that I would forward the exerpt to my readers because it contains some EXTREMELY VALUABLE information. If this excerpt is any indicator, Keith Gibson (like me) has no qualms with kicking the “hornet’s nest” that is the modern day “prophetic movement”. [Read More]
I don’t recall exactly how it started or when the decisive moment was. I do not know how I got to the point of being so deeply entrenched in apostasy and deception. I can not definitively point to one moment and declare that that is when the deception began and my destructive course was charted. I simply don’t know. What I do know is that I was convinced. I was convinced of my being on the right path. I was one of God’s chosen, His elite, His enlightened ones. “Get into the River” was our mantra and our manifesto. [Read More]
I’ve seen in visions and dreams the destruction that is destined, especially on our West Coast. This has caused some to say that I have a hatred for our West Coast, which is not true, but rather the opposite. I really can’t help what I dream, and though a psycho analyst might say it is the result of deep feelings, I know these are prophetic dreams. They never leave me pleased, but rather I’m grieved enough to take all of the heat for sharing them with the hope that people will listen, repent, and they will not have to come true. [Read More]
After the controversial Lakeland Revival and Todd Bentley’s subsequent divorce from his wife, the church was all-too-quick to point the finger at him and accuse him …. and I’m in agreement, for a man to leave his wife and kids is a tragedy. For that same man to re-marry and be reinstated into ministry within a little over a year should be an outrage. [Read More]
I just read the article “The Prophetic Gifts: How Do They Work in Us?” from Rick Joyner on the Elijah List today, and it really bothered me. Not because it was untrue, but because it ignored the true need of those who will read it. What bothered me was that the audience that will read the article will come away from it wanting to prophesy more, but will still be unaware of the depths to which the “prophetic movement” has plummeted.
