I know some of you might not like /love me for this post , or might not even want to visit my blog after this but , am addressing this Todd Bentley issue because of the fact that God has vindicated me and all those who asked this same question about Todd Bentley and His ways. Secondly to address the erroneous feeling that I in some way, am enjoying what is happening to Todd Bentley and his Ministry. . . far from that! In fact am ashamed and sad that so - called Christians are busy deceiving others and making it difficult for real Christians to do the work of God Almighty in this day and age . . . where the devil is pulling all the stops to make sure that Christians find things difficult in this life.
The reason for my previous post was because I was baffled about his divorce and I wondered why a man who claimed to do all those mighty things suddenly, wants out of his marriage to his wife of many years . Even though as I woman of God by the Spirit of God I felt there was more to it than they were telling us, I had my suspicions of infidelity and so on but now it has been confirmed by his own ministry. . . what a pity!
Without further ado, Am using this post to tell Mr/Ms Anonymous that has been busy saying all sorts of things on this blog on my previous post . I would like for you see your Todd Bentley for yourself. Am not judging him, just stating facts like I said earlier in my previous post . He should be held accountable and I still maintain that . . . I believe his works should be checked with the Bible. I don't know why it is easier for people to lay down their lives for a mortal man than for the Gospel of Christ !
How can I be jubilant that someone's marriage is over? For those who do not know am a product of a broken home and for that alone there are consequences/burdens that we from such home or (background ) bear in life, (if you doubt it, ask any body who grew up in a broken home with strife) so my Prayer is for families to stay together and not let the devil come in and scatter it .
Read my Testimony . . . if you wish. Godbless
For those asking me if am sure about this, please read below and also go to his website Fresh Fire Ministries and see for yourself. . . please do take note of the points I have highlighted boldly on the post below. . . "very important to Christians to note these words" .
In response, Bentley’s Fresh Fire Ministries posted the following comments on its website:
The Lord’s blessings and abundance have been so evident on the ministry during this season of intense activity and we rejoice in seeing and being able to participate in what we believe is only the beginning of a worldwide awakening. It is with considerable sadness then, that we must temper the jubilation we know you all feel with the sobering news that Todd and Shonnah Bentley are presently experiencing significant friction in their relationship and are currently separated. We want to affirm that there has been no sexual immorality on the part of either Todd or Shonnah, nor has there ever been. Undoubtedly the pressures and the burden of the Outpouring, which approaches 144 days on August 23rd, have helped to create an atmosphere of fatigue and stress that has exacerbated existing issues in their relationship. We wish to stress however, that the Outpouring is not “to blame” for the current chain of events and that in effect we have no interest in blaming anyone, but rather we deeply covet your prayers for Todd and Shonnah and for Fresh Fire Ministries during this time.

Yesterday, that message was replaced by an apology and ‘Special Prayer Request’ from Fresh Fire Ministries’ board of Directors:
We wish to thank all of our friends and partners for the overwhelming flood of support and compassion we have received as a ministry on behalf of Todd and Shonnah Bentley. The many phone calls and emails of concern from people who genuinely love the Bentleys and Fresh Fire Ministries have been a great encouragement to all of us here during these past few days. In particular, the rallying of support and prayer for Todd and Shonnah by prominent leaders within the Body of Christ has been a beautiful indicator of the maturity and grace the Lord is bringing to his Bride.
We wish to acknowledge, however, that since our last statement from the Fresh Fire Board of Directors, we have discovered new information revealing that Todd Bentley has entered into an unhealthy relationship on an emotional level with a female member of his staff. In light of this new information and in consultation with his leaders and advisors, Todd Bentley has agreed to step down from his position on the Board of Directors and to refrain from all public ministry for a season to receive counsel in his personal life.
On behalf of the Fresh Fire leadership and the Board of Directors we wish to apologize to our friends and partners and to the larger body of Christ and to ask for your forgiveness. We are truly sorry for the pain many of you must feel and so regret that in the midst of great revival, the enemy has found a way into our camp. To those who have stood by us, we wish to thank you for what in many cases has been years of support. Thank you for your financial giving towards the vision of this ministry, and thank you especially for your prayers. For those of our partners, friends and supporters who may be struggling with the recent disclosures and finding continued support of this ministry in conflict with either conscience or conviction, we release and bless you with all our hearts and trust that God will redeem in your hearts the good that He has accomplished in your lives through this ministry. It is our sincerest hope and prayer that the Lord bless you and bring you into your fullest destiny in Him.

Infact am so disappointed!!! I don't know if I should ask more questions?
1. If Todd has been having an affair while on the program whose anointing was he under?
2. Are we sure the Ministry was not aware before hand that his marriage was on the rocks and yet they sat on it.
3. What measures are they taking to make sure He does not eventually divorce his wife and marry the new lady?
4. Do these people practice what they preach?
5. I ask, Why would a pastor "Married or not" be having an unholy relationship at all?
6. Also when they say "unholy Relationship" do they want to say , adultery or what?
Well God knows Who and What we are. . . Finish and klaar!
THINK ON THIS
Matthew 7:21-23,21"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' 23Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'
