Above is a picture of Bethel students continue reading to find out what they are doing. My hope in sharing this is that people would pray for them to stop this insanity! Love them even if they are purposely doing this to harm the body of Christ. I believe they can be redeemed.
Let me first say I was duped myself. Thought this was one of the most amazing ministries on the planet. I was seriously mistaken!
In 2008 I was a part of the Lake Land Revival. There were true miracles going on but there was also great error. I got acquainted with the ministry of Bill Johnson and many others that were under a leader Bob Jones. The Prophetic leader had been over ministries such as Ihop in Kansas w/Mike Bickle,Rick Joyner, Todd Bently, Patricia King, click herePatricia King video for video on Patricia Kings to see warning of occult practices. Joann McFadden, all associated with Extreme Prophetic most on Elijah’s List are also ministries you should beware of. I can honestly say stay away from all of them!
During the revival 2008 I noticed a lot of strange things going on but kept about my Father’s business minded my own about the strangeness. The Lord brought me out to the revival to pray for people. I prayed with many others like me we saw miracles. I was part of the ministry team there so I know God was moving. But, what I saw was two kingdoms working through Todd Bently which brought the revival to an end. He was flowing in the Holy Ghost and was no doubt gifted of God, the gifts do come without repentance tho. People were being healed in Yehsua’s(Jesus) name. Todd never mentioned his angels that guided him or spoke out of term with the word of God from what I remembered. There was a major shift in July that caused everything to stop. He came out publicly about his affair with the families nanny and left his wife. He was also water baptizing people in the name of sheikaboomba. It was funny at the time but now I see it was blasphemy. The tents market place was growing as big as the revival tent and the power inside the tent diminished greatly from it too. I was learning that Todd practiced yoga and was adding more and more tattoos to his body. Years after the revival I saw Todd in Sacramento, CA he was still following in the two kingdoms. The first night he preached directly from the word and I was touched by God. The next night Todd was preaching about mantles and that his wife had reached a turquoise mantle and pointed to his neck the level she was at. It clicked immediately what he was talking about! Chakras! this is an occultic hindu practice channeling energies up the spine. He was teaching it as if it was biblical. All occultic practices are from false religions and all false religions have false gods the false god is satan! That night there were no doubt in my mind witches doing some kind of ritualistic dance in the worship. As soon as they finished their chanting and dancing they left didn’t even stay for the word. The next weekend the church that had Todd Bently preach had Jason Westerfield my friends told me he was teaching that we no longer have to repent to back to the seed of Adam but we need to repent to the cosmos. I asked my friend if that sounded wrong to her? She said it made total sense . I thought to myself dear Lord how could that seem remotely biblical to anyone? She mentioned other crazy things he shared about spending time with scientists and spoke about aliens. I read an article that even Bill Johnson rebuked him. So I do question is Bill Johnson in great error and not seeing it or all of them deceiving people purposely?
Bill Johnson and others from his ministry flew in from CA for the 2008 revival. I had the opportunity to see him minister and hear him preach. I found out years later visiting his church I was deceived by his ministry. A friend of mine was a student there and told me to come out they were having miracles. It was right after the storm Sandy hit NY. I got very ill from the storm and needed healing. So I decided to go out there and see what God was doing. The morning of the flight I was praying in tongues and heard don’t go! I told my friend she said “Honey you’re in too much fear it’s not God telling you not to go it’s the devil” It was 23 degrees that day dropping down to 15. I thought California sounded really good at least for the weather. I went and what I went through I believe was so crazy I had to share with all of you. My flight was blessed was so excited when I got to Redding. My friend picked us up at the airport and brought us to the house we were renting a room from. Things didn’t seem so off at first but not too long did it take me to understand something was very wrong. People I met were very out there the f bomb was commonly dropped from numerous amounts of people that claimed to attend the church regularly. I wondered right away why weren’t people being transformed? I was there for a couple of months to have been able to see a lot. The second woman I rented from told me she prayed to satan to be well endowed when she was a little girl. She had a strange looking poster in her room that looked demonic. But claimed to be a woman of God? I asked her why she prayed to satan. She told me she didn’t know any better. As a child I would never have thought to pray to the devil because I wasn’t taught about him much. Maybe she had an exposure to the devil and might have still been involved with him? The first night I was there she made me tea and I was up all night having strange dreams. Soon after I started having anxiety and was calling the prayer line at the church asking them to pray with me to know the will of God. The first time I called the person told me the will of God was whatever I desired. I was so thrown off because what would even be the purpose of seeking God if it didn’t make a difference what God thought. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing the mark being out there. So I called again got another person telling me the exact thing. Called the next day another person again the same thing it’s whatever you desire we don’t even have to seek God it’s what we desire it’s his will. This must have been one of the false doctrines they were teaching? Then I was going up to their Pastoral counseling center getting prayer and I shared with the Pastor on call I was having anxiety and that I hadn’t felt like that since I came away from occultism. She asked me what I did in the occult I shared I was doing yoga. She stopped me saying oh no yoga is not occult I practice it myself. I told her each movement was a prayer to a hindu god and she said God was still using it in her life. She was able to take things and let God use them for her. There was no reaching her with the truth at that point. I was really puzzled at that point how was she on Pastoral care there and no one told her about the occult? It became creepier and creepier the more I got to know more of the leaders there. A woman that was running their disciple program rebuked me for being in the Bible so much. I asked her if she read the Bible daily and she said she no longer had to read it the Bible was already in her. I thought maybe it’s just her. This woman was the head of their discipleship program. Then I met the head of the prayer team that told me I needed to stop reading the Bible and going to conferences and just go get an ice cream cone. These people were leadership I was rebuked for reading the Bible. No wonder all the witches were so comfortable in that church! It got even worse I was invited to a drum ceremony at there prayer center. What I heard outside that building was so satanic I didn’t dare enter the building. When I finally got away from this environment I had many people telling me about others having horrible anxiety after being there too. And someone shared this video with me showing them laying on graves trying to get the anointing from the dead. click here Andrew Stromto see Andrew Storms video on Bethel
Someone that came out of witchcraft shared with me that witches do this to get powerfrom graves.
Could all of the error have come down through Mr. Bob Jones? I read articles about him manipulating women sexually for prophetic words. He repented when he was exposed. This does set off an alarm with major red flags. But what made me upset was his occultic influence on his followers. I was invited to see JoAnn McFadden in Colorado she was teaching everyone about quantum physics. Everything she described made me cringe in my seat as I heard the false doctrine being taught. At the end I was able to talk to her about it. I told her I had come out of new age occult and everything she was teaching was straight from their false doctrine. She said ” Bob Jones taught this to me and he’s a prophet of God” I grabbed her hand and asked her if I could pray. She said “Yes” and my prayer was” Abba Father if I’m wrong about this and there’s something you want me to see convict me if my sister JoAnn is wrong I ask you to convict her in Yehsua’s name” She thanked me for praying. I did further studies and found that this quantum physics thing was no doubt not of God. Anything focusing on energy force more than the word of God is red flag lifter. The founder – Ludwig Boltzmann was an atheist along with other of the quantum mechanics practicing it too. So ask yourself this question were they inspired by the Holy Spirit in any way? The fact that I was being lead to the leader Bob Jones recommended his leaders teach this occult practice raised even more flags. Are these people following him satanists/ wolves in sheep’s clothing or just misguided Christians?
I hope what I’ve shared opens eyes because so many are blindly following and allowing witchcraft in their churches. I won’t even listen to their worship anymore. If they are practicing occult and preaching false doctrine that unholy fire gets into their worship too. This means Jesus Culture is no bueno too because they come out of Bethel! The definition of culture is -the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively. Sounds like flesh to me and man leaning on their own understanding collectively. Use wisdom folks do your own research make your own assessment. Take this warning serious it could save your eternal life. Following false doctrines is being lead away by seducing spirits.
2 Timothy 4:3-5
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
