The emergent folks get more and more bizarre. Now Frank Viola over at The Ooze is promoting his new book, "From Eternity to Here, Discovering the Ageless Purpose of God." An excerpt of the book is posted here. In the excerpt Viola paints Jesus as an alien invader from another world. He continually refers to Jesus as a "creature", when, in fact, Jesus is the Creator. And Jesus did not "invade" Earth from another world, but He was born on earth to a human mother. This kind of crazy nonsense wrapped in thinly veiled christianized vocabulary only serve to confuse people on the true nature of Jesus Christ and what He really came for.
Joyce commented on Todd Bentley, Patricia King, and Emma the Angel of Light post, that a video of Todd Bentley scaring a small child had been removed from youtube.
Here is another link to the same video on myspace video.
Rick Joyner replied to Lee Grady, in regards to Lee Grady's Greasy Grace letter.
I had a dream about 2 years ago. I am posting it here for records purposes and also just to bounce it off anyone out there with any insight.
Honestly if the ElijahList and Rick Joyner would just let it be instead of attempting to catapult Bentley and his "wife" back into ministry, we could just let the issue die. Anyway we do not plan on posting on this man frequently, as he has been exposed time and time again. However it is good for those looking for information for discernment purposes to be able to find it. So, here are some further resources on the Lakeland Revival and Todd Bentley, exposing the unbiblical and blasphemous nature thereof.
It is nearly a year since I posted my first article about the revelation I had about Todd Bentley's angel emma. I felt compelled to post it something like 9 days before the Lakeland Revival started. I did not know why, but I had to listen to my conscience.
Seeing that I did post a lot about Todd Bentley, I felt I should followup with this second Todd Bentley scandal, regarding his "restoration". First off, it is clear to me that Todd Bentley is not fit for leadership, never was fit for leadership, and I do not believe he will EVER be fit for leadership.
First, we had a whole lot of people writing comments on the other Todd Bentley posts on this blog, and railing against those exposing the Lakeland revival for what it is. Paul says that these things come out (1 Timothy 5:24). These people need to question if they are following God or not. If they were, would they not have discernment? Now, read this. Todd Bentley, and the Lakeland "revival" is finally exposed.
Are WAGNER's APOSTLES LEAVING??
Last week we published a number of strong statements against
Lakeland by one of Peter Wagner's 'apostles' named Robert
Ricciardelli. For those who are not aware, Peter Wagner heads
up an organization devoted to setting in place "apostles" over the
church. This is known as the 'New Apostolic Reformation' (NAR),
and it has been very controversial. I myself have never seen it as
any kind of true "Reformation" - because all it seems to do is
set up another level of hierarchy over the existing ones. I also
question whether many of the "apostles" are true apostles - but
that is another story. Suffice it to say, that Wagner runs one of
the most powerful and far-reaching global networks in the
I thought it was important to put these videos up. Andrew Strom is interviewed regarding the false prophetic movement, after writing a book called "True and False Revival".

- My Main Concern About Lakeland (Watch the video while Andrew is talking. It is Todd Bentley and his cohorts acting like fools)
- Holy Spirit and Angels or Demons and Kundalini? (Near the end of this video, watch how a pagan man is doing the same stuff as is seen in the Lakeland "revival". If I am not mistaken, the background video is of a man imparting the Kundalini spirit to people)

I Dreamed I Went To A Carnival
I dreamed I went to a carnival billed as THE GREATEST CARNIVAL SHOW ON EARTH! As I pulled in to the lot, there were smiling greeters with flashlights who guided me expertly as I parked.
I exited my vehicle to the sound of excitement, the glare and flash of multi-colored lights and the screams of thrill seekers on the various rides. The cacophony was almost overwhelming. I followed the crowd of people who were happily murmuring about the various things they had come for: blessings, thrills, to be fed, to be entertained.
I had just paid the full admission price when someone started walking towards me from the shadows. While I could not quite recognize his face, I knew he was a friend. He said, “Why are you wasting your time and money here?”
Yesterday, I was notified of a man who had a dream about a Christian Civil War. He claims that the ones fighting against Todd Bentley, Rick Joyner, etc, are on the wrong side. He lists a few at the bottom of his page. Below is the dream he had...
Dream: I saw the Lord's church represented by a military base. Everybody had different positions and jobs. There were ground soldiers, fighter pilots, guards, captains, generals, etc. Everything looked fine and in order. But then I noticed something strange. Everyone was going about their duty when all of a sudden, a dispersed group of OUR ground soldiers (who happened to look like Storm Troupers) started marching in complete unity toward a specific area. This group was comprised of people from all different areas of the military base. They marched onto these wooden platforms that were high above the entrance of the airplane hanger. They marched in lock step, as though they were being given orders by some unseen force. The rest of us were amazed, and didn't know what to make of this strange situation. When they got to the edge of these platforms they all pulled out their guns (AK-47s). I looked in amazement and said to myself, "what are you guys doing? Who are you responding to?" When the first airplane came out from the hanger, all the soldiers shot at it. There was no chance for our pilot. Such a hail of bullets came against him that the airplane was destroyed. The pilot could not go fast enough to escape. I thought, "BETRAYAL". The rest of us who were not part of this group started running in fear. This group shot down one plane after another, it was a complete slaughter. All the pilots tried to go top speed out of this hanger, but they had no chance. We were losing all our best fighter pilots. In real terms, 1 pilot in the air was more powerful that 100 ground soldiers, but none of the pilots could ever get up.
Then one pilot took a different path. Instead of trying to escape, and save his life, he turned his plain straight at the wooden platform that the soldiers were standing on, and crashed right into it, sacrificing himself. This collapsed the structure holding the men, and killed many soldiers in the betraying army. Somehow, after this happened, it broke the unity of that army, throwing them into chaos. They where still hostile to us, but no longer had unity.
