TODD BENTLEY IS BACK: Re-Married, Begging for "full restoration"!

We had a few months without Todd Bentley, but now he's trying to weasel himself back into your lives and living rooms by playing with his followers' (and his former followers') emotions. Looks like a case of "here we go again".

False prophet, Steve Schultz, in his Elijah List e-mail newsletter today said that false-prophet Rick Joyner is on the job, being a father-figure to Todd Bentley in a program of "restoration" that is evidently well on its way, since Mr. Schultz is also begging for you to donate your hard-earned cash to Todd's NEW AND DISPROVED ministry "Fresh Fire USA".

Steve continues: "Pray for Todd Bentley and all family and friends who were affected up to this point—and who will be affected in the future. I'm sure that the Todd I know would take back any mistake possible..."

I was going to say it IS possible for Todd to take back the mistake of leaving his wife... but I must admit it is highly unlikely... I'm not sure even my godly wife would take me back If I had an affair, say with the church secretary.

Steve also said, "...in life we don't always have "do-overs". Instead, we must each continue to live in repentance.". But evidently, a "do-over" is exactly what Todd is trying to get! How is Todd "repenting"?? He LEFT tens of thousands of followers in the dark under the rubble of the Lakeland fiasco and has not returned to make restoration with his wife!

People, DO NOT FORGET THIS: Todd Bentley stood on that stage in Lakeland, night after night, and lied to your faces when he spoke about his close walk with God and when he praised his "beautiful wife Shonnah" and his kids. Then when he walked off the stage he walked into the arms of Jessa Hasbrook to commit adultery with her! Supposedly meeting with God in the third heaven realm while AT THE SAME MOMENT having an affair with a member of his ministry team! I guess God didn't give a second thought about Todd's lies and adultery as He entertained him in the spirit realm?

He has also LEFT HIS WIFE AND CHILDEN! Gone! And he MARRIED the one he committed adultery with! The Bible is clear... God does not recognize this marriage and Todd Bentley walks in UNREPENTANCE continually until he leaves her, and returns to God based on His clear instruction and biblical definitions of marriage, unfaithfulness, adultery and repentance. (See Ezra 10:10-12 to see Israel DIVORCING their PAGAN WIVES and repenting.)

Repentance is "doing a 180". Todd has not gone back to his wife. He has not renounced his Latter Rain heresies, OR his Manifest Sons of God false teachings, OR his false prophecies. He also STILL has not produced any of the documents from his claim of "tens of thousands" of "documented healings"

Folks, I've got news for you. This is THE SAME TODD!

No. I take that back. This is Todd 2.0. The SAME UNGODLY, UNBIBLICAL HERESY... only now, he wants you to ALSO accept his continuing adultery, (and his adultress wife) as ministers of some screwy, twisted, heretical version of the Gospel.

In the newsletter there is a personal word from Todd Bentley. It says in part:

"It has been a long while since I have spoken publicly and openly. I am sorry for the hurt and confusion that my decisions have caused the Body of Christ.

"As many of you now know, my previous marriage has endured years of unresolved conflicts. I apologize that it has ended in divorce, and I take full responsibility for my part for the ending of the marriage. I realize that my silence and decisions have caused many of you to feel hurt, confused, and offended. The reason for the silence was for my need of healing, creating a restoration process under a team of qualified leaders (Rick Joyner, Jack Deere, and Bill Johnson), much needed rest after the Lakeland Outpouring, repentance, and the divorce process.

Todd also said that he is "confident that the good men around me will help me be restored first as a man, as a husband, and ultimately to fulfill God's call on my life."

Todd, if you're reading... How can you be "restored a a man" if you don't first give up your sin? You're not desiring to be "restored as a husband"! It is clear because you haven't destroyed and left the idolotry of your adulterous relationship... instead you MARRIED IT!

Todd, months later I'm begging again. Dump the garbage that you are falsely calling "God's call" on your life. Your entire "ministry" is unbiblical at best and heretical at worst. Turn now in true repentance toward God. God IS calling you... but it is the same, old call of the Scriptures... to fall, hopeless on your face before your Judge... begging Him for mercy, grace and forgiveness, doing that "180", dumping your continuing adultery, which in turn lets your new wife be freed from her adultery. Become a disciple rather than the False Teacher and False Prophet you've set yourself up to play for years. What does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul?

To the rest of my readers, I'm afraid it's "here we go again"...

Todd Bentley hasn't learned a thing. He is deceived and continues to deceive others his lies and heresies.I pray he may find repentance of the Lord, because I don't think Todd was ever saved to begin with. As for his supporters, I don't believe they are saved either. May God grant them repentance before it is too late.

Jon maybe you should write the AOG again and see if they have taken any position on this yet.

Maybe they will post 'guidelines' on restoration to ministry after adultery. Of course without mentioning any names or taking any action themselves.

Like AOG would do anything. They do not care about what there so called "pastors" are doing, all they care about is how much money they are bringing in!
