Rick Joyner “Releases” Todd Bentley Back Into Ministry (source)

Posted on August 18, 2010 by Chrystal Whitt

Well, I guess the “restoration” of Todd Bentley is complete, because Rick Joyner is “releasing” him back into ministry.

Here are a couple of observations:

  1. Rick Joyner restored Bentley, not God.
  2. Rick Joyner didn’t truly “restore” Bentley…only God can do that.
  3. Rick Joyner ignored God’s Word and convinced his followers that Bentley is fit and qualified to lead in a ministerial capacity.  The Scriptures disqualify him, therefore, Joyner did this in open rebellion and defiance of God’s Word.
  4. Just because Rick Joyner declares Bentley to be restored, doesn’t mean he is.  The holy Scriptures stands against him.
  5. I know Joyner was deeply hoping that Bentley would be restored and the public would accept him, because if he wasn’t, that would prove him (Joyner) to be a false prophet.  After all, he did prophesy longevity over Bentley at Lakeland, shortly before he fled in disgrace.  He had a strong vested interest in getting Bentley up and running again…. self preservation.

So… Joyner has turned Bentley loose, huh?

This might just get interesting.

Jesus used the media of His day to share the reality of the Kingdom with people, and He wants to empower you to do the same today!(source)

Did you know that God wants to use the media? Did you know that you can have a “media calling” from God? Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but what I see in the Bible concerning what God wants us to do is to spread the Gospel, stand for sound doctrine, obey God’s commandments, and rely only upon the Holy Spirit to draw mankind to repentance. While I agree that we should use modern methods to spread the good news about Jesus Christ, I disagree with depending on it as the tool that leads people to God. This is a classic example of a man-centered gospel that promotes the idea that somehow God needs us to help Him get His Word out and save people.

When we strip away all the talk about visions, angels worship (Colossians 2:18-19), miracles, and signs and wonders (2 Thessalonians 2:9-10) from this movement  just what are we left with? By removing all these extra declarations and signs, the gospel message that remains is confusing at best. What’s clear is that we are left with a group of leaders peddling (1 Timothy 6:10) their own visions and self-proclaimed prophetic word.

2 Timothy 3:1-8 (New American Standard Bible)

“Difficult Times Will Come”

1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.

2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,

4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

6 For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses,

7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith.

God does want us to use our gifts and unique talents He gives us (1 Corinthians 12:1-31). There is nothing wrong with teaching people to use the gifts that God has given them. My disagreements are not with using our gifts and every tool available to spread the Gospel. My problem with this movement is its emphasis on these strange visions, false doctrines, man-centered gospel, and cult like leaders who use their status to elevate themselves to a position of a prophet.

I wish the people following these false teachers/prophets would take the time to truly study the Bible instead of blindly following these leaders. Because of my belief in the power of the Holy Spirit and the effectiveness of prayer, I believe the Lord can deliver those who are being deceived by this movement (Mark 10:26-27). I ask each of you to join me and pray that God draws these false teachers/prophets to true repentance. I pray for those who are deceived by these servants of Satan and self.

2 Peter 2:1-3 (New International Version)

False Teachers and Their Destruction

1 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

I’m typing getting revelation….” Bobby Conner

1 Timothy 1:3-4 (NASB)
3 As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines,
4 nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NASB)
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,
4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if a crazy person had some misguided idea about what prophecy was and then they were put in front of a piano and given a mic? Wonder no more...” source

How can people sit under this madness?

What’s all this with the media, movies, video games, computer games, and number one songs?

Maybe we can learn more from the following video:

2 Peter 2:1-3 (NASB)
1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
2 Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned;
3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
