Matt Ford is a con artist, huckster and someone who truly doesn't understand the real God who has revealed Himself in the Bible, because if he did Matt would fall on his face begging for Christ's mercy and forgiveness for his mockery and blaspheme.
There's a sucker born every minute. Those who've been duped by Joshua Mills into believing that he's a man of God and that God's glory covers him with gold dust and heavenly oil can now send him a seed offering money and he'll send them a cloth that he's stepped on after first slathering them in rose scented oil. Ewwww! The details from Joshua's site are posted below.
RECEIVE A GLORY CLOTH
Anointed with Supernatural Oil for Your Miracle!
"...God did unusual and extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or towels or aprons which had touched his skin were carried away and put upon the sick, and their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them." - Acts 19:11-12
During our recent glory meetings the supernatural oil has been flowing in significant measure from my hands and feet. This supernatural oil is a sign of the commanded blessing (Psalm 133). It is a sign that points us towards Jesus Christ and reminds us of the powerful anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Just last week the supernatural fragrant oil began to flow from my feet in abundance as we began to worship the Lord. It began coming with the fragrance of roses – this smell is symbolic for the fragrance of Christ, He is the Rose of Sharon. We placed cloth material under my feet so that the oil and fragrance would flow into the fabric. We have gathered the oil in this way so that it can be used as a point of contact, just like the fabric that was taken from the Apostle Paul in order that extraordinary miracles would begin to be released!
As I stood up to preach the Word of God it was only a short time before this supernatural oil began flowing from both of my hands. I was able to lay my hands upon every person in the meeting and anoint them with this heavenly balm – then once again, the supernatural oil began to flow from my feet. We were receiving an overflow of the uncommon blessing. It flowed and flowed and flowed! David said "my head has been anointed with fresh oil so that my cup OVERFLOWS!" (Ps. 23:5). Do you want to experience this kind of overflowing blessing in your life?
This video features false prophet, Joshua Mills and others parading a simple parlor trick as a miracle when it is anything but an act of God.
Ironically, the Bible does mention gold dust. But, when it mentions gold dust, it is not a blessing or a miracle. Here's what the Bible says:
“Then Moses turned and went down from the mountain with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand, tablets that were written on both sides; on the front and on the back they were written. The tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, engraved on the tablets. When Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, “There is a noise of war in the camp.” But he said, “It is not the sound of shouting for victory, or the sound of the cry of defeat, but the sound of singing that I hear.” And as soon as he came near the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, Moses’ anger burned hot, and he threw the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain. He took the calf that they had made and burned it with fire and ground it to powder and scattered it on the water and made the people of Israel drink it.” (Exodus 32:15–20)
How much do you want to bet that someone is going to leave a comment defending this man as a "true prophet of God" and claim that I'm blaspheming the Holy Spirit for claiming he's a false prophet? Anyone want to take me up on that bet?
Getting drunk and high on the 'glory of god'? Jesus warned us about people like this:
““Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” (Matthew 7:15)
“And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray...For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” (Matthew 24:11, 24)
Forget theology. Today's Biblical illiterati have traded sound doctrine and theology for Idiology. While watching this video (which will make you more stupid by the second) Don't forget to imbibe in your own can of Shoobie Doobie Booobie Juice.
With Todd Bentley being rapidly restored to 'ministry' after the news of his inappropriate relationship abruptly ended the so-called Lakeland Revival in scandal, it's time to ask if the so-called healings that Bentley performed were real.
In the current issue of World Mag, Warren Cole Smith is reporting that some people that Bentley had proclaimed as having received miraculous healing from God died shortly after their visits to Lakeland. This is even more damning proof that shows that Bentley is a false prophet, a fraud and a dangerous con-artist.
Christopher Fogle, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, loved to fish. It was a break from his fast-paced, 25-year career with the Perkins Restaurant chain.
But when Fogle got severe cancer, his relaxing fishing trips, which he sometimes took with his children, ended. It was a devastating blow for the active 45-year-old. But for Todd Bentley, television preacher and self-proclaimed healer, the cancer represented an opportunity to "proclaim the glory of God."...
At the height of what many called a revival, WORLD asked Bentley to talk about the healings, like Fogle's, and asked for a list of people who had been healed at the services. His associates told me Bentley was out of the country and a list could not be produced. But six weeks and more than a dozen requests later, the ministry eventually sent a list of 13 names. Fogle was No. 12 on the list, along with this note: "Healed through the Outpouring and is back to fishing."
That was on Aug. 8, 2008. There was just one problem. Two weeks earlier, on July 22, Christopher A. Fogle—according to his obituary in the Keokuk (Iowa) Daily Gate City, "left this life . . . after a courageous battle with cancer."
A review of the list nearly one year later reveals that Fogle is not the only person "healed" who is now dead. When I called Phyllis Mills, of Trinity, N.C., on April 22, to hear the testimony of her healing, a polite family member said, "Phyllis passed away a few days ago. In fact, we're on our way to her funeral now."
Mills, 66 at the time of her death, had lung cancer and was undergoing aggressive treatments when she was, according to the list, "healed at the revival." Mills "was taking radiation, but was sent home," according to notes on Bentley's list, with "no trace of cancer in her body."
Here is a sampling of what goes on at Rick Joyner's Morningstar "ministries" (a so-called 'christian' ministry). This is probably one of the most disturbing videos that we've seen in a while (and that is saying a lot!). The only word that comes to mind is DEMONIC!
Warning: This video is shocking, sad and EXTREMELY offensive. We are posting this here because it shows the true nature of the people promoting the Tokin' the Ghost heresy. (Remember we post this type of stuff because this is the Museum of Idolatry).
The man in the video is Brandon Barthrop and he has a "ministry" website called Red Letter Ministries that promotes getting high and whacked in the 'Holy Spirit'. Brandon has also made the rounds with John Crowder and Benjamin Dunn promoting the Tokin' heresy in churches.
This video exposes the true satanic nature of this heresy better than anything else we've witnessed.
Do you think Jesus behaved in this manner or taught his disciples to do anything even closely resembling this? Of course not, yet there are people who call themselves Christians and churches that claim to be Christian that listen to and follow this man and his teaching.
There are many things wrong with event that this video records.
1. Notice that Dutch Sheets is NOT opening the word of God and preaching from the scriptures. Instead, he is preaching on a supposed dream that he had. When did dreams get promoted to 'scriptural' status? Why should we believe that the "jesus" in Dutch's dreams is the real Jesus?" (we can't think of any reasons).
2. Then Rick Pino breaks out into a rousing rendition of 'Mess Us Up In Your Presence Oh God". (see if you can spot the golden calf)
Here's how we see it. The more unbelievable the claim is that is being made, the more solid the evidence needs to be in order to prove the claim. This video shows Todd Bentley claiming that the 'outpouring' in Lakeland had produced 13 resurrections.
Notice that in the beginning minutes he makes references to the Nightline news crew that was coming to report on the 'outpouring'. Bentley sounds excited that they were coming and makes it sound like he was going to provide proof to support the claims of healing and resurrection. Instead, the Nightline story emphatically claimed that there was no evidence provided to support or prove that even one healing had taken place.
There are a bunch of folks sending us inflammatory emails and leaving comments taking the Museum of Idolatry to task because they want Todd Bentley's "Florida Outpouring" to be real (but it isn't). We've provided the Biblical proof that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Bentley fails the Biblical tests for a prophet and now the SECULAR media has confirmed that Bentley's 'healing show' is not legit and there is not one confirmed healing, NOT ONE CONFIRMED MIRACLE.
Wake up church! Bentley is a false prophet and a charlatan.
Colosians 2:18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize. Such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen, and his unspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions. 19 He has lost connection with the Head...
2Pet. 2:1 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.
Apparently "God" isn't interested in the church hearing about Jesus any more. Todd Bentley claims that God wants people to believe in the angel named "winds of change" that supposedly visited Bentley at the beginning of the Lakeland "revival".
Bentley's 'god' told him, "Todd, you’ve got to get people to believe in the angel”
Galatians 1:8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!
1 Cor. 2:1 And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. 2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
Todd Bentley's defenders have been sending us emails claiming that the Lakeland "Revival" is not about the money. We beg to differ. All you have to do is visit Todd Bentley's 'Fresh Fire' website and you'll see that they are fishing for money. In fact, the site says "Sow Seed Into Revival Now!" [Seed is a Word Faith euphemism that means MONEY]
Since, when does God need money for revival? How on earth can anyone with a conscience make the claim that if you send them money that God would turn that into revival? We thought the Bible said that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills. God is loaded. Why would God make revival contingent upon you sending money to Todd Bentley?
The Lakeland Healing "Revival" is in full tilt BUT Todd Bentley is a false prophet. How do we know? We know this because the Bible is clear that a true Prophet of God is always 100% correct. God doesn't grade Prophets on the curve. Either God is speaking to you or He isn't. Here is the Biblical test of a prophet:
Deut. 18:21 And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the LORD has not spoken?’— 22 when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.
Below is a video that provides us with IRREFUTABLE proof that Bentley is a FALSE PROPHET. Pay close attention to how accurate his 'readings' are. Remember a true Prophet of the One True God MUST, according to the scriptures, be 100% accurate.
By the way, what is the Old Testament punishment for false prophets in the Kingdom of Israel? Here is what the scriptures say:
Deut. 18:20 But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’
People need to heed the warnings of scripture.
Matt. 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
Matt. 24:11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.
Matt. 24:24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
