thanks for the perspective on what is going on in Lakeland. I have been following it on God T.V. for the past few days, and there is no denying that the Holy Spirit is, indeed, on the move. The staff at the House of Prayer I was apart of for the past couple of years all hopped planes and made their way down there a few days ago. One of them described it to me this way in an email:
“the biggest thing i think that’s going on here is that god is offending the mind to reveal the heart
over and over again things are happening that offend people’s reasoning…but I can’t deny that it’s a move of God.”
So, yes, the theatrics and bing, bam, boom style of Todd Bentley gets on my nerves after the first 100 times a night and I may not “agree” with everything I see going on, but what is the fruit of this outpouring? Is Christ being lifted high? Are people being healed and set free? From what I can tell and what I hear from people I love, trust and know don’t succuomb to spiritual lemming hysteria-YES. So I will pray for the Lakeland revival and how God is moving there. And ask for Him to open up my heart so my offended mind will not take over.
Again, thanks for bringing this to the attention of the AIM community.
