Update on Todd & Shonnah Bentley - official statement of Fresh Fire Ministries

The board of directors of Fresh Fire Ministries writes:

Greetings to our FFM Partners-past and present.
November 28, 2008

Please allow us to begin by sincerely apologizing for the long silence between our first two letters and this one. We will do our best to help you understand why it has taken us so long to respond to your many legitimate requests for information. Please also know that we write this letter as an explanation of our silence and not a defense of it.

We have received letters, emails and phone calls from many of you during the last three months, expressing sympathy and support as well as frustration and disappointment. We ourselves have been on an emotional rollercoaster for some time now and have found that looking to the Lord for His new mercies every morning enables us to make it through the day.

In light of our lack of communication, some of you have felt the need to withdraw your partnership with Fresh Fire Ministries; we completely understand and both release and bless you in your walk with God. Others have been compelled to discontinue their giving as a result of the economic crisis in America and in other countries around the world. We thank you for the many years of faithful support, and wish you to know that it was not in vain; more on that later. Nonetheless if you must go, for whatever reason, we trust that the Lord will lead you in connecting with the many other excellent ministries out there faithfully advancing His kingdom. Some of you have received so much good word and powerful impartation through FFM, that you might consider starting your own ministry.

Moving on, let us first say that we know, without a shadow of doubt, that Lakeland was and is an authentic move of God. Having known Todd well for many years, both his amazing strengths and his areas of weakness, we can say without reservation that the move of God in Lakeland, which began at Ignited Church, was genuine. We have never seen, in the history of this ministry, a greater quantity and quality of the miraculous demonstration of God’s healing power. As the Lord began to pour out His glory in Ignited Church and in the many venues that followed, Todd’s spirit was as pure as it has ever been and he was intensely hungry for more of God’s presence. He would spend hours soaking each day before the evening meeting, and once the worship had begun, Todd would become lost in the presence of God. The manifestation of amazingly accurate words of knowledge and astounding miracles flowed effortlessly night after night.

As the Outpouring continued, the Board of Directors and other leaders in Lakeland suggested that Todd take a few days off each week to rest and refresh. We learned from experience, however, and the post-Lakeland counsel of Christian leaders, that the anointing can be addictive. Significant personal issues in Todd’s life and make-up, as well as, flaws in the functioning structure of our leadership resulted in an impossible pace to maintain… seven nights a week for more than 15 weeks on end. We fully accept the responsibility as a Board of Directors for this lapse in judgment; we should have required that not just Todd and the team, but the entire Outpouring rest a minimum of one day a week. God himself rested after six days work as a pattern for His creation, and if the yoke of the Lord is easy and His burden is light, then He has no need to exhaust His people in a fresh encounter with Him.

As fatigue began to set in, significant personal issues in Todd and in his relationship with Shonnah were exacerbated. This, together with his increased familiarity with a female staff member created more tension in the Bentleys’ relationship. As the pressure of leading the revival continued, media attention increased resulting in less and less personal time. With the development of more friction in his marriage relationship, Todd began to make irrational decisions. Alcohol, movies and leisure time spent with a few of the younger, more impressionable members of his staff and road-crew began to replace the hours of soaking in the presence of God in which Todd had engaged during the early days of the Outpouring. Finally, Todd began to burn out, and things came to a head in his relationship with Shonnah. He was unwilling to put distance between himself and the female staff member and ultimately told Shonnah he wanted a separation.

The fact that the revival was in Florida, three thousand miles from our home office in Abbotsford, BC Canada, meant that the entire administration for the revival was provided by a rotating stream of church leaders and Board members who would assist behind the scenes and on the platform for a few weeks at a time and then return to Canada, usually on the verge of total exhaustion. Trying to keep up with the logistics of administrating the revival, including the massive challenge of moving from venue to venue until we finally arrived in the tent along with the media circus that ensued shortly afterwards, meant that communication was greatly inhibited between the leaders involved. Many early signs that something was drastically wrong were overlooked. By the time we became fully aware and/or were willing to admit how dysfunctional things had become behind the scenes, the damage had already been done.

As to our long silence in writing to you, please let us explain. We have been in much contact with Rick Joyner, Bill Johnson, John Arnott and other members of a team focused on restoring Todd, seeking to do all within our power to encourage him to embrace a process of counseling and genuine accountability. In deference to these leaders we have refrained from communicating at all until we could be assured that we were all on the same page. At the same time, senior members of the leadership team here at Fresh Fire as well as members of the Board of Directors have been stretched to the breaking point in attempting to deal with all of the attention created not just by the revelations of Todd’s marriage problems and personal issues, but also by the five months of revival preceding their disclosure. Since then, many false accusations and rumors surrounding both Todd and the Lakeland Outpouring have attempted to use Todd’s failures as a springboard to question the legitimacy of the revival. Consequently, key leaders have had to step back and rest in order not to burn-out themselves. This, coupled with the busy schedules of the restoration team, all of whom travel internationally, has made getting everyone on the same page difficult.

We so appreciate all those who have stepped in to assist the FFM Board in a process of restoration for Todd, but what we have come to realize is that ultimately, the buck stops with the FFM Board of Directors. No one knows Todd better, or has more access to all the facts from both sides than we do.

Again, we apologize for not writing to you sooner. We struggled for a while with the question of how to satisfy two important obligations - that of honoring Todd, while believing for his restoration and at the same time, our obligation to be completely honest and open with you as our partners. Through much prayer and with the Lord’s help, we hope to satisfy both those obligations with this letter.

There is a difference between covering Todd and covering for him. We refuse to expose explicit details of his failings over the last few months, but neither will we pretend there haven’t been any. “Covering” is a biblical term as in “love covers over a multitude of sins” or as in the case when Noah’s two sons draped him in a blanket when he unwittingly discovered what happens when you drink too much fermented grape juice. “Cover for” is a contemporary idiom meaning to lie or misrepresent the truth in order to enable another to get away with or to continue to be involved in illicit behavior. We have been slow in responding up until now, because we wanted to bring you a positive report, full of hope and the promise of restoration. All of that is still entirely possible and we pray to that end, however, further silence on our part would be misrepresenting the truth by allowing you to believe that what we said in our first two statements (which were true to the best of our knowledge at the time of their writing) is still the case. Unfortunately that is not so.

Here are the facts:
Todd has yet to enter into a clear system of accountability with the leaders he identified that would be involved in such a process. Todd has visited Rick Joyner in Fort Mills, South Carolina, and indicated early on in September that he would be moving there soon to become a part of the community there and to receive counseling from Rick Joyner, Jack Deere, Bill Johnson and others that Rick might feel to bring alongside. Todd is in regular contact with Rick Joyner and has agreed together with Rick that he will move to Fort Mills during the first few months of 2009.
Having spoken with Todd in recent days, he is resolute in his intentions to divorce Shonnah, and in his mind, the restoration he is seeking is one which would not include reconciliation with his wife. Todd admits to being 100% responsible for the divorce.
It also needs to be clarified that Shonnah has in no way initiated this divorce and has no present intention to do so at any time in the future. She is understandably hurt by Todd’s infidelity, but is not asking or pressing for a divorce. The legal separation from Shonnah was initiated completely by Todd and he has not seen her or the children since the last week in July. To our knowledge, Todd’s relationship with the female staff-member, who was a former intern and also, at his initiative, a live-in nanny in his house for over a year, is still ongoing. We believe that there are currently no biblical grounds for Todd to leave his wife and children. While it has been maintained that no physical contact happened between Todd and the former female intern until after he filed for legal separation from Shonnah, in the Boards’ eyes, the nature of the present relationship between Todd and his former staff member is that of adultery.
Having said all that, our sincere desire is to see Todd first restored to Shonnah and the children, though at present this seems unlikely. We are optimistic that should Todd keep his word and move to Morning Star, Rick and his team are well equipped to be the Lord’s instruments in a process toward restoration. With genuine accountability, inner healing, counseling and deliverance we are confident that it is entirely possible for Todd to come through and gain victory over a number of significant personal issues with which he is struggling.

We love Todd dearly and so appreciate the ground he has broken, not just for us, but for many tens if not hundreds of thousands within the body of Christ. Todd’s genuine love for the Lord, his hunger and passion for souls and his tangible demonstration of the love of God in miracles, signs and wonders will be remembered for many years to come. Todd is a champion in the Global paradigm shift from a lethargic and dunamis-deficient church to an empowered body of believers carrying out the Great Commission in a mighty demonstration of the Spirit’s power. That’s how we, and we think many others, will choose to regard Todd even if he doesn’t allow the Holy Ghost to work a process of restoration in his life. If he will, and we pray sincerely for that, then only God knows what can be accomplished through this young fire-brand’s life.

It is our deep desire that our brother Todd should be restored, and we are still hopeful that this will be achieved. Please let us make it clear, that although what Todd has done is inexcusable, it is not unforgiveable. We do not judge him unworthy of a second, third or even fourth chance, and we hope that you don’t either. The Lord spoke clearly that those desiring mercy themselves would be well advised to give it to others, and the Lord has brought amazing goodness and life out of far worse circumstances.

The Lord has been speaking to us about sins of commission and sins of omission. Many may look at Todd and judge him for what he has done and excuse or justify themselves on the basis that they have not failed or sinned (missed the mark) in the areas in which Todd has failed. But if we are going to judge Todd by what he has done, then we need to include all that he has done. And if we will excuse ourselves on the basis of what we have not done, then we must also take into account all that we have not done.

Todd Bentley has demonstrated himself unfaithful to his wife by entering into a relationship with another woman while still legally married. He has consumed more alcohol on a few occasions than is prudent or becoming a Christian leader (or any believer for that matter). His sins have been sins of the flesh and we do not defend them.

He has, however, also seen over 1 million people make decisions for Christ in the 10 years of his ministry. He has been instrumental in seeing the Lord heal tens of thousands of people (if not more) of all manner of sickness and disease through the personal laying on of his hands and who knows how many others vicariously through television and the internet, or though the prayers of those who received the healing anointing through Todd’s ministry. He has been used by the Lord to give countless accurate prophetic words and words of knowledge to thousands of people around the globe, and his testimony and passion for God just since April 2 in Lakeland, Florida has touched literally millions through the internet and television.

Jesus said, “They are my children who obey my commandments”, and if the theme of the Ten commandments in the Old Testament is “Thou Shall Not”, then the theme of the Two Greatest Commandments as outlined by Jesus in the New Testament in Mark 15: 30-31 is most definitely, “Thou Shall!”
“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength… (and)…You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (NIV).
As is also said in 1 John 4:20-21
“If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.”
How many believers have become almost vicious in their attack against Todd, demonizing not only him but his ministry and everything he has ever done? What sort of spirit do you think is behind this? And how many around the world are sick and dying and unsaved because of what we, the global body of believers, have not done? Because we have not been obedient to preach the gospel, heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out devils (Matt. 10:8). Nothing is defined by what it is not, but rather by what it is; not by what it does not do, but by what it does do.

What Todd has done should not only be defined by his present failure. He has raised the bar on what is possible. He has broken a barrier of sorts for all of us and made a pathway into new possibilities. This is what you partnered with - not a man but a transferable anointing and an ability to reach into a combined realm of prophetic revelation and signs and wonders manifestation! Guard your deposit and don’t let the enemy’s backlash rob you of what you have already received. At the same time we openly admit that what Todd has done at the height of his supernatural breakthrough has resulted in a tragic breakdown in the natural causing great pain to many, but to none so deeply as to his wife and children.

Yet in all this we have been challenged and chastised by the Lord to remain gentle in our hearts toward him while we pray and encourage him to do the right thing and to come into accountability.

Galatians 6:1 is very clear in its instruction on how and with what attitude we are to restore one who has fallen,
“Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted” (NIV).
Maintaining gentleness of heart towards Todd means that we do not write him off or wish any manner of evil upon him. We need to continue to pray for him and to keep a door of relationship open to him. We are willing to assist in the process of his restoration, messy though it may be. Neither does a gentle heart towards Todd mean condoning what he has done nor enabling him to live in sin by either our support or our silence.
So please pray for Todd and also for Shonnah and their family. Pray with fervency that the Lord would do a mighty miracle for the number one purpose of bringing vindication to His Name, but also that we might see our brother restored. We cannot control a person’s choices, nor have we any desire to do so. What we can control is our response to their choices and see the Lord take what the enemy means for evil and work it together for good.

We at Fresh Fire Ministries are presently in a season of waiting on God. We are in the process of re-defining our government structure with assistance from leaders in Bethel (the church pastored by Bill Johnson in Redding, California) and others affiliated with Morning Star-Rick Joyner’s ministry in South Carolina. In August, Todd verbally stepped down from the FFM Canadian Board of Directors and has recently given written notice of his resignation. With Todd no longer at the helm we are looking to identify vision-casters from within and to refocus the ministry’s endeavors in keeping with the original mandate of Fresh Fire Ministries. In the coming weeks we will provide you, our partners with a detailed update of our vision and emerging leadership structure.
There is one area of the ministry that is seeing increased activity, and of all the many ventures and endeavors FFM has been engaged in, we believe this one to be closest to the heart of God. The Uganda Jesus Village in Africa is continuing to expand, with the building of homes on our recently purchased 35 acres of land just outside of Kampala, Uganda. Over the course of the summer, two brand new homes which will house eight to ten children each have been completed and construction is beginning on two more this week.

The purest expression of our faith as defined by the Lord in James 1:27 is to look to the needs of widows and orphans. Many FFM Partners and Missions’ Team Members have visited our children’s home in Uganda, commenting on the amazing transformation in the lives of these children orphaned by war and disease. Currently we are housing over 60 children in Kampala with a long-term vision to rescue as many as 500 children from the war-torn northern part of Uganda. We are in regular communication with our missionaries in Africa, Luke and Suzanne Jones and their family, and there is so much excitement in their hearts at the prospect of being able to rescue more children.

In this interim period as we wait on the Lord for clarification of our governmental structure we will continue to press forward in the work of supporting and expanding our Uganda Jesus Village. We thank all of our Partners that have given to this work and all of you that have sponsored and continue to sponsor the children in the homes.

Again, our sincerest apologies in having taken so long to respond and communicate to you, our beloved Partners. We thank you all for the grace you have extended us in this difficult season and together we look forward expectantly to brighter days ahead.

God poured Himself out in Florida and through the internet and television, around the world. Not on a man alone, but on a hungry body of believers has He given the seal of His Holy Spirit in power to be witnesses of His saving grace throughout the world. Through the weakness and failure of man, the enemy seeks to defame and discredit what God has done in empowering and authenticating his Church as carriers of His power and anointing to accomplish His purposes in the earth for His Glory.

Let us do as Elisha did when standing alone after a season of mentoring and impartation. Let us swing the mantle that we now carry, the mantle of God’s Glory, and together cross over to the other side.

God is waiting for us in 2009-certain to be our greatest year yet!

We understand you may have questions and concerns that you want to express to us. We love you all so much in Christ, and we welcome you to contact us by phone at 604-853-9041 or email info ( ) We look forward to hearing from you.
Blessings in Jesus name!

Rick Joyner´s new serial about Obama and the elections (pt. 1)

In his last "word of the week" he writes:

We are going to spend the next few weeks examining the lessons from the recent elections because we probably will not get a greater illumination of the times than this for a long time.

The elections were an indication about the present state of the nation. We must understand how, but first we need to understand that an election does not necessarily mean that God’s choice won. As we are told in Psalm 115:16, “The heavens are the heavens of the Lord, but the earth He has given to the sons of men.”

This is why the Lord will not do things on the earth until we pray. He knows what we need even better than we do, but He delegated the earth to men to rule over, and He has never taken that authority back from us. That is why the Son of God had to come as a man to redeem the earth, and why He always referred to Himself as the Son of Man while on the earth. The Lord will intervene and help us if we ask Him, but we must ask. Basically, on the earth mankind is getting what mankind wants. God is not causing all of the problems here—we are. He can fix any problem, but we have to ask Him and then make room for Him to fix them.

You might think that you did ask the Lord to intervene in the election, and He did not do what you and millions of other Christians asked Him to do. However, there were also millions of Christians asking for what the outcome became. Of course, many wonder how a Christian could vote for someone who is pro-abortion, much less for someone who believes that there should be no restriction on any abortion, even partial birth abortion. This is a good question and is certainly a reflection on the state of the church in America as well as the nation. Answering this question can lead to a greater victory than just the passing of laws could do. We will examine this, but for now, let’s just acknowledge that it is a fact.

We must also understand that this was an election for the United States, not the church. The people of the United States have chosen Obama as their next President. As Christians, we have a clear biblical mandate to honor him, respect him, and always treat him with the dignity his position demands. Because we are a democracy, and ultimately the people are the authority, we also have the right to speak out about things we disagree on. However, we must always do this with dignity and respect for those in authority as we are commanded in Romans13.

In future Words for the Week, we will get into a number of crucial issues concerning our times, but for this week we need to understand a basic one for us to realize the victory that is ultimately possible. The election indicated that the nation did swing far to the left. In fact, it is remarkable how close McCain came to winning this election facing the challenges he had. More will be said about that later, but there is something even more basic we need to understand that everything will ultimately hinge on, including our ability to be the prophetic voice we are called to be in our times—Obama won because he won the battle for hope in the future. Even though his message of hope had little substance, it fortifies how powerful this weapon is, especially in trying times.

The church has been given the most powerful message of hope for the future that the world has ever heard—which is of course the gospel of the kingdom. Because the Lord answered a few questions about the signs of the end of the age, this tragically has been an emphasis of the evangelical church more than the beginning of the age in which Christ will return and reign over the earth, restoring it to the paradise it was originally intended to be. No religion or philosophy of utopia has a greater hope than we have, and yet we keep losing this high ground of hope for the future to cults and other religions like The New Age Movement which are cheap counterfeits.

The sign of the end of the age that may be the most important is that the gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the earth, and this has to happen before the end can come. Gospel means “good news.” It is the best news there could ever be; it is the most powerful message the world has ever heard, and it is time to use it.

Mike Bickle from Ihop about Obama and the need for increasing intersession

Mike Bickle in the International House of Prayer about the U.S-election, pro-life and marriage:

On google you can watch the entire video.

Obama has won the election but the result of the ballot "California Proposition 8" shows that the prayer movements like TheCall can still change the history. On my video-blog you can watch the video of "TheCall - San Diego - 4. Nov 08".

If the prayer movement increase in number and in intensity we will get more spiritual authority. The intensity or the lake of prayer of the body of christ will decide the direction in the politics in the next 4 years.

John Burton from "Pray the Revolution" writes concerning Mike Bickle´s video:

Can you imagine what would happen around the world if Barack Obama were to declare the discovery of Jesus Christ as his Lord? It would send shockwaves of revival across the planet. Let’s pray hard for him. As it stands, we are facing the threat of three key issues that are contrary to God’s will being advanced with force: Abortion, homosexual union and the release of land in Israel. These three points MUST be addressed in prayer. The way to see them all addressed with one broad stroke would be for Barack Obama to have an encounter with Jesus Christ.

Jesus actually visited a life-long witch in his bedroom in Manitou Springs, Colorado. His report was that, as he reached out and touched him, he would NEVER be able to deny the overpowering love of Jesus again. He called the first church he could find. This happened after God spoke through three people at a city-wide prayer event in City Hall that Jesus wanted to visit people in the city THAT NIGHT.

We prayed in unity in response to the prophetic word and it ACTUALLY HAPPENED! The same can happen with our new President. God loves him a lot and God loves this nation a lot. He also loves the unborn who are at risk and those who are diving deeper into homosexuality. The situation is complex, and we need an encounter in the White House like never before.

That´s it!!!

Outpourings in Portland & San Francisco + links to actual prophecies, prayer-movements and a teaching video of Sharon Stone

Outpouring of Healing and God's Spirit in Portland, Oregon:

South African Evangelist Hamilton Filmalter Helps Usher-in an Outpouring of Healing and God's Spirit in Portland, Oregon:
Sep 19, 2008, by Aimee Herd -

Hamilton Filmalter: I went down to Lakeland. What I experienced there, the Spirit of God, was beyond anything I'd ever encountered in my life. It was an intensity beyond anything I'd ever encountered… the presence of God-I'd never encountered it like this-the glory of God.

So I came back [to Oregon] and I knew when I was there that we had to bring this back to our region… We just started last night, and we're still trying to get the word out. We've got a number of churches involved with us but we want to see many, many more people involved and really see an outbreak.

BCN: Where are you meeting?

HF: It is the North Wilsonville exit [off I-5], then a mile up Boones Ferry Road on the right there's a road called Green Hill Lane, you turn right on Green Hill Lane, left onto the parking area of the tent. It's in Tualatin, and it's the property just south of Horizon Christian School.

BCN: How many people came last night?

HF: About 100 people, but I believe it's going to grow. We had quite a number of healings last night. There was one lady, we still have to get medical feedback on it, but she was in chronic pain, could not move her neck at all. God touched her, she said she had cancer, and that all the symptoms of the cancer were gone. I mean, she got radically touched by the Lord. Another lady had serious hip trouble and got healed, and a lot of people that had pain and so on that got healed.

And obviously, you know, you can only go after the stuff that is there. So we need people to bring the sick and we believe God is going to do many, many miracles, and many people are going to be set on fire [for the Lord]. And we encourage people to [come from all backgrounds and denominations] that we can see this fire go out, from the radically "Holy Ghost people" to the Evangelical people in our area. Then also, to bring the lost, we believe the lost will be saved in the thousands. (...)

Outpouring in San Francisco:

‘Golden Gate Outpouring’ is heading into its third month of nightly revival meetings:

During a visit to Lakeland, Fla., in May, San Francisco pastor Michael Brodeur blogged some thoughts for his church members back home who were antsy for revival. “I believe this is just the beginning of a fresh wave of the Holy Spirit in our midst,” said Brodeur, senior pastor of Promised Land Fellowship. “I encourage you to put on your wet suits, grab your surfboards and paddle out into the coming move of God. This could be the ride of your life.”

Now, after 67 days of nightly meetings, his church and staff are in the midst of something not unlike the Lakeland Outpouring, though Brodeur calls what’s happening in San Francisco “a different animal.”
“Our meetings have been very different from Lakeland in style and form,” he told Charisma. “The character of our outpouring is been much more just soaking in the presence of God and seeking His face.” (...)

blog rumor: Biden could step down in the next week(s) to make room for Hillary Clinton as VP

Intercessory Missionary Matt Lockett writes:
This is unsubstantiated, but I feel compelled to regurgitate it here.
There's a blog rumor running around that Biden will step down from the VP slot for "health reasons" after the VP debate next week. The rumor goes on to say that Obama will select Hillary to replace him. Everyone thinks he's kicking himself for not doing that to begin with. The blogs are trying to "out" this rumor just in case it really goes down.

I think, everybody should know this...

Let´s pray that McCain and Palin will win. You find me reasons on:
Why we should pray for Sarah Palin

Dudley-Outpouring: Sept. 18-23, 2008 Firestorm-Gathering with Trevor Baker, Keith Miller, Ken Gott & Kevin Prosch


Firestorm-Gathering LIVE on Sept. 18-23 :
->7:30 PM (BST) - UK (LIVE)
->8 :00 PM - WORLD (Rerun)

Trevor Baker, Pastor of Revival Fires & Dudley-Outpouring writes:

FireStorm Gathering

Come and be part of this historic event.
11 months ago Jill Austin, who ministers in the prophetic, gave a decree that Dudley would no longer be a place of hiddenness. This is what God has been doing. Through my trip to Lakeland, Florida, I was commissioned to bring the fiery call back to the UK.

Having seen the Outpouring begin and continue here in Dudley, we are now into our 20th week of extended meetings. Other leaders have come and we have seen a convergence of ministries and anointings. Out of this convergence we have sensed in the Spirit that it is time for the UK to become a FireStorm. This was prophesied over the UK the last time I was in Lakeland by Bobby Conner. A FireStorm is created as a series of a small fires come together which then generates a wind vortex, a tornado of fire, which draws strong currents of air into the blaze making it burn fiercely.

I want to personally invite you to come and be a part of history in the making as together we become a FireStorm of Revival in the UK and Europe.

I have invited those who carry anointing in worship and ministry of the word to be part of this gathering.

God TV have also asked to carry the FireStorm gathering by broadcasting it LIVE each day. This will have an impact beyond anything we have known for the Outpouring in the UK.

18 - 23 September 2008
Session times are:

Thurs at 7.30pm
Fri - Tues at 10.30am and 7.30pm

Please be prompt for these sessions as we are expecting there to be a high demand for seats.
A gathering of those whose hearts have been ignited by the Dudley Outpouring

Come join us over these days as we desire to see God fulfill the prophetic word spoken by Bobby Conner earlier this year that there will be a FireStorm hitting the UK and Europe.

We have special guests Kevin Prosch, Keith Miller, Ken Gott, Mark Stibbe and Trevor Baker ministering from Thurs 18 to Tues 23 September 2008.

Held at the Apostolic Resource Centre, Dudley.
Pre-registration is now closed. Please register on the door. There is no charge. Offerings will be taken.

Kevin Prosch in the UK Kevin Prosch's lyrics reflect his experience with God and calls people to "return to their first love". Kevin is a pioneer in the worship ministry; he continually pushes the boundaries of worship with the melodies, lyrics, and instruments used in his ever continuing quest to behold the love of God. He is well versed in many musical instruments from the piano to the mandolin. He and his band are a well tuned and truly insync with each other and the flow of music. Kevin isn't afraid to "free style" in the middle of a song if that is where God leads him. This attribute and willingness to follow God's lead has truly blessed many, many people at every level of Christianity. Kevin's many albums (Even So Come, Kiss the Son, Tumbling Ground to name but a few) have become bestsellers the world over. His songs include His Banner Over Me and Show Your Power. His music has inspired a "new sound" in worship influencing the likes of Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin and Martin Smith of Delirious?. Prosch is currently the worship pastor of More Church in Amarillo, Texas.

Keith Miller has been described by many leaders as a fresh voice for this generation to declare His Word, reveal His Character, and show His Power. Keith moves prophetically and in revelatory knowledge of God's plan for restoration and revival in this present hour. Keith ministers under strong anointing of the Holy Spirit, seeing signs and wonders, including salvations, and physical and emotional healings.

Dr. Mark Stibbe has since September 1996 been the Vicar of St Andrews Church Chorleywood, a large and growing charismatic Anglican Church just outside London. He is the best-selling author of numerous works, including the recent One Touch from the King, Healing Today, Prophetic Evangelism and The Father You’ve Been Waiting For. He regularly speaks about the father heart of God and the healing of the orphan heart, and is an anointed communicator who travels both in the UK and overseas. He is married to Alie - who is also a writer - and has four children aged between 18 and 11.

Ken Gott and his wife Lois are Senior Pastors of Bethshan Church in Newcastle. In 1994 following a visit to Toronto, the church experienced a major move of God which became known as ‘The Sunderland Refreshing’. Over a three year period hundreds of thousands of people came from all over the world to visit nightly meetings at Sunderland Christian Centre. From the refreshing the ministry Revival Now! was birthed whereby they were able to take the fire all over the world. There are two things close to Ken’s heart; prayer and revival. In 2006 his vision for a 24hr House of Prayer was birthed when the Sunderland International House of Prayer was opened, more than 80 gatekeepers take shifts day and night to keep the flame burning 24/7. Ken & Lois’ desire to see revival in the UK and Europe is fuelled by the many conferences they host for the nation.

Sarah Palin is born again, spirit filled and she got some prophetic words - Let´s pray that she will win

EDIT: I added some new info to this posting on sept. 19th

The picture quality of this clip is low but the sound is good. And what she says in the second part is amazing!!!
For me as a German it is a great miracle that somebody with a charismatic background has been nominated as Vise-President. In Germany this would be nearly impossible. So you Americans have a great opportunity now...

Sarah Palin in her former home church "Wasilla Assembly of God" - Part 1

Part 2 - She mentions prophetic words for Alaska & herself and that she prays for revival... after that she receives a powerfull prayer - that´s awesome!!!

Her former Pastor from the "Assembly of God" in Wasilla, Alaska - Todd Stafford - writes:

"Governor Sarah Palin did attend Wasilla Assembly of God since the time she was a teenager. She and her family were a part of the church up until 2002. Since that time she has maintained a friendship with Wasilla Assembly of God and has attended various conferences and special meetings here. This June, the Governor spoke at the graduation service of our School of Ministry, Master's Commission Wasilla Alaska."

on Realms of Glory i have written:
Know that us Canadian are praying for you Sarah Palin - we can’t wait to see you in that White House!!

As a German i totally agree on that! And I pray for Sarah Palin too. Her sermon at wasilla Assemby of god really touched me - especially the second part:

For me it is one of the most amazing miracle that a true believer like her is going to be the next vise-president.
While watching her sermon at Wasilla AoG and her speech at RNC i had tears in my eyes because i understood what a great miracles this is.

I mean have you ever had a vise-president who truly loves Jesus? Who knows the Holy Spirit? Who appreciates prophetic words? And who PRAYS for Revival??? Sarah Palin is a miracle!!! If we pray for her protection she could become like Joseph who became the second man after the Pharaoh.

Think about it - what could happen when she and McCain will win the election?!

When you and we from outside the US pray intensely than McCain and Palin will win and than they will change the Abortion-Law into a better law which says: ADOPTION instead of abortion!
This would be the answer to the prayers of TheCall (they are praying for this since 2000)

I think Sarah Palin is also a prophetic sign that a great revival for the US could follow. Something is going in America...

America and the world needs a real change - not a Barak-Hussein-Obama kind of "change" - but a real change. A change back to Jesus, the holy Spirit and the Father Obama tries to look like a savior but Jesus IS the true Savior.

Imagine how a great revival in the US would change everything and how this would influence to whole world. And by the way - as America goes so goes the World!!!

It´s really time to pray that McCain and Sarah Palin will win and stop abortinon and that the prophesied great revival will come to the US and to the whole world. Let´s pray for that intensely like the 70,000 intercessors did as you can watch in this video clip of THE CALL, Washington D.C., august 16th 2008 (the clip is in a larger but sharp video size)

Bring boths events together - The Call + Palins nomination - and you will see a thrilling proof that prayer can change the world - even the political world.

But it´s not finished yet. Let´s pray for Sarah Palin and her family for PROTECTION and wisdom

Video about the first day of the Holy Spirit Breakout at MorningStar (Rick Joyner´s church and ministry)

It started on April 23th 2008 with two students who went down to the Lakeland Outpouring to get a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit...

Holy Spirit Breakout - Day 1 - April 23rd 2008:

MorningStar Ministries writes:
"The Lord visited us here at Heritage International Ministries on Wednesday, April 23rd, during a Bible Class in our CSCL day school, which then blew up into a 12-hour Holy Spirit break out! Kids, teachers, staff, parents, and students all were impacted by the presence of God in various ways - healing, deliverance, joy, mind and was powerful and it has continued! This video is a brief documentary of what happened on Day 1 of this mighty outpouring."

Video: How in God's name can you endorse Todd Bentley? Watch Bill Johnson´s answer

Bill Johnson is one of the apostolic leaders of the Revival Alliance and pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, CA
His Page: Bill Johnson Ministries

Answering the question "What do you think about Todd Bentley and the Lakeland Revival?" he writes on his website:

Todd is a good friend, but more importantly, he is a friend of God. I've met very few people in my life who are hungrier for God and will take extended periods of time just to seek Him. God has entrusted him with an extraordinary outpouring for a reason—He can trust him to do whatever He says, regardless of the opinions of others. He is bold—amazingly bold. The miracles are legitimate and increasing. The church of America has asked for a great revival. God wonderfully placed this move in a package that few would have expected, just to see if we're as hungry as we say we are.

Recent response to the above answer:"How in God's name can you endorse Todd Bentley?" This is my response:

Have you spent time with Todd? Do you know him? Have you watched him with his wife? Or have you seen how he treats his kids? Have you spent any time with his staff? Have you been to his ministry? Has he been to yours? Have you laid hands on him and prayed? Has he laid hands on you and prayed? Have you grieved over tragedy together? Have you celebrated victory together? Has he sought your counsel? Has he traveled a great distance just to meet with you privately for advice? Have you ever received his counsel? Have you been in the room when God has showed up on him, and used him in stunning miracles? Have you seen him operate in the word of knowledge or the prophetic? Have you met with his counsel of elders? Have you personally benefited from his gift? Has he benefited from your gift and ministry? Has he ever honored you for who you are in God? Has he partnered with you as a friend? Have you sacrificed for his welfare, or that of his family? Have you sought God with him? Have you ever worshipped the Lord with him?

I didn't think so. I have. And I'll continue to support those who I have walked with in life and ministry. He's my friend. More importantly, God calls him friend. And if you and I were ever friends in that level, and people hated you and turned against you, and started web pages to tear down your ministry, and criticized you to your friends, and wrote against you in Christian magazines, and criticized you on the radio and wrote emails to other conference speakers and authors, I'd still be your friend.

By the way - criticism in the form of a question is not a question. But to respond to your statement, "How in God's name can you endorse Todd Bentley?" It's easy. I do it in God's name.

"The Angel of the Winds of Change":

Rick Joyner: "A prophetic friend, Bob Jones, was recently visited by an angel who was one of the largest he had ever seen. This angel said that his name was “The Winds of Change,” and that great changes were coming to the church. He said that until now we have known mostly the winds of adversity, but the winds of change that were coming would “fill our sails” as the church is about to move forward again. "

Keith Davis: "In a visitation prior to this conference, a huge angel appeared to Bob stating his name - “Winds of Change”. This angelic being was accompanied with three other angels, we believe representing three churches and their leadership the Lord is desiring to join together in the bond of unity. This huge messenger stipulated he has now been released to bring the “winds of change” to the church aiding us in the transition imminently ahead. These winds will fill the sail of the church to transport her on this virtuous journey. Things are not going to continue as they have in the past within the church and the manner in which she is viewed."
