Todd Bentley Revival Ending -
Returns to Ignite
by Slaughtering the Sheep
August 2, 2008
The tents are coming down!
After today's service, the tents
in Lakeland are coming down, and the revival is moving back to
Ignited Church where it originated. The revival was slated to
end August 23rd, but with dwindling crowds, the hefty price tag
may be too much for those in charge of the revival to continue,
and it is shutting down early.
When the so-called revival first
began, Bentley made the bold statement that God told him this
revival would continue until the second coming of the Lord.
Either God was mistaken, or Bentley was speaking presumptuously
in the name of God....
What does this mean for his
enablers such as Patricia King, Bob Jones, Stacey Campbell, Che
Ahn, Paul Cain, Rick Joyner, and others who prophesied over Todd
in his commissioning? Click

Preach Compassion in Interfaith Settings
Understand the Times with
The following article about the Dalai Lama explains that his
purpose in spending so much time in meditation is to promote
compassion as the key to making planet earth a better place.
This would mean working together with leaders of all
religions in a cooperative effort.
This is very interesting in
light of the fact that Pastor Rick Warren is holding a
conference at Saddleback August 16, 2008 titled
"Saddleback Civil Forum on Leadership and Compassion."
Further, in an article we posted July 21 titled "McCain,
Obama to Appear Together at California Megachurch", the
following statement was made: "In conjunction with the Civil
Forum event, Warren will convene an interfaith meeting with
about 30 Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders to discuss
joint projects that can benefit all Americans." Notice the
interesting common denominator with the two plans - the
Dalai Lama's plan and Rick Warren's plan - working together
with all religions to benefit all.
Of course, there's
nothing wrong with having compassion for others - however,
uniting together with other religions for a common cause to
make the world a better place, may well end up being a
slippery slope that will someday lead to the union of the
religions of the world for the cause of peace that will
eventually bring about sudden destruction by the Prince of

Rick Warren's Global PEACE Plan
versus the Great Commission
by Paul Proctor (News With Views)
Jesus did not send out just

If that's all He was attempting to accomplish in Matthew 10, He
was a miserable failure because, from what the Bible teaches,
society's problems continued long after the disciples returned
and, in fact, got a lot worse - especially for followers of
OneNewsNow.com recently reported the following in an article by
Jim Brown titled Interfaith "cooperation" at Saddleback:
California mega-church pastor Rick Warren says Christians should
not be reticent to work with Mormons, Muslims, Buddhists, and
even atheists to cure societal problems.
In conjunction with the presidential forum he is hosting next
month at Saddleback Church, Pastor Rick Warren will convene an
interfaith meeting for 30 Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders
"to discuss cooperation for the common good of all Americans."
Now I don't, for a minute, expect anyone outside the Body of
Christ to appreciate the things of God, His sovereignty, His
glory, His purpose, His Word or even the gospel. If you're a
social worker - even a Christian working as a volunteer within a
charitable, yet secular organization, you are to be commended
for your service to society.
But the church was not established by Jesus Christ to partner
with other world religions and beliefs to share God's glory with
Allah, Joseph Smith, Buddha or Madeline Murray O'Hare. Neither
were we called by Christ to bring their followers into the
ministry with us. Those who have truly been redeemed by the
blood of the Lamb ought to know better than this.
There is any number of popular preachers these days, both on and
off TV, touting unbiblical notions to cheering crowds as if they
were carrying out the Great Commission. Many of them, if not
most, are convinced that their worldly success and the resulting
fame and fortune they enjoy is evidence of God's approval and
The fanatical followers of these smooth talkers are so far from
the truth and so taken by their preacher's voice, reasoning with
them, even from the scriptures, is often like reasoning with an
animal, which is why I believe Jesus said, in Matthew 7, verse
6: "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye
your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their
feet, and turn again and rend you."
