‘the spirit of delusion is alive and well’

REVIVAL- Todd Bentley Lakeland, FL

    A woman who wants to hear again puts herself in the hands of Todd Bentley at the Ignited Church in Lakeland, Fla.  

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Timothy 2: 1-12

 

This is what happens when those who tout the name of Christ have no clue as to the reality of the battleground of the spirits. They are left to the mercy of demonic spirits…..

“And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?”

The only defense against such delusion is the Word of God! Study to show thyself approved unto God……

  1. Well,

    What he said is not that unique if it is meant spiritually, and not physically. It did sound at first like he meant “in the flesh,” but then after that he said there would be a change of atmosphere.

    I know Jesus is with us anyhow, and it is personal, and it is one to one. We normally experience the presence of His holy spirit, who has been assigned to us until the Lords’ second coming. Jesus can also make his presence known to our spirits. If Bentley meant it would be a spiritual experience only, then he does not need to make it a “prophetic word. ” We already know that God is with us, and he is just saying the obvious.

  2. Yes marianne, thanks for stopping by ‘A Word From Malachi’ and peace in the faithful name of Yeshua ha Massiach. The post was not really about “the visitation of Christ” at the Lakeland revival. It was about the gross and prevailing delusional spirit that was manifested in the clip.

    The whole purpose for the post was to confront what we seeing rearing its ugly head under the ‘guise of Christianity’ ; and that is a spirit of deception and that caters to nothing more than the emotions of the flesh. I should think this is a very dangerous and vulnerable condition. Appears to open it (church) to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; The sad thing is that it will draw those from the faith, yet due to the ignorance of God’s word, they don’t even realize it is taking place. So sad.
