Todd Bentley’s revival and prophetic anointing was attributed to his angel Emma. According to Bob Jones, Emma birthed the Kansas City Prophet movement of the 1980’s. Thus, Bentley carried the torch of the Kansas City Prophets.
The Kansas City Prophets was founded by Bob Jones; who was a proponent of the heretical theology of the Manifests Sons of God and Later Rain movement. In 1991, Bob Jones was fired from Vineyard church, after confessing to sexual misconduct. He had teenage girls strip naked in his office for counselling. After girls undressed, he would share a word from the Lord. Hence, the entire foundation of the Kanas City Prophets was rotten.
Todd Bentley dresses like biker out of Hells Angels. He has demonic tattoos all over his body. His preaching style is bizarre; even kicking ladies in the face with his Biker Boot for healing. At one of his revival meetings, a woman kept repeating the mantra “I want to be a landowner lover. I want to be a landowner lover. I want to be a landowner lover with you Jesus”. At this, Bentley shouted, “Yes, oh yes, Lord, make me your lover”. He also prayed, “I want to burn for you Jesus. I want to burn.”
Another aspect of Bentley’s ministry is his obsession with angels. He is a fanatic of strange angelic encounters. He told his congregation – that God wanted him to focus his preaching on angelic visitations. One of Bentley’s missions was to open up stargates in cities around the world. Thus, Bentley wants to flood cities with angelic spirits.
Todd Bentley even used angels to gather money for him. He stated, “Father, give me the angels in heaven right now that are assigned to get me money and wealth. And let those angels be released on my behalf. Let them go into the four corners of the earth and gather me money”…
Ultimately, the Lakeland Revival would end abruptly, after Todd Bentley was caught in an affair. This led to the breakup of Bentley’s marriage; which sent shockwaves throughout the Charismatic world. For many it was a wakeup call that Satan was the author of the entire event. Still, today, many believe despite Bentley’s moral lapses, he is a great man of God. With the help of Knight of Malta, Rick Joyner, Bentley has been brought back to the limelight; and continues to lead people astray.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
