Testimonies from Todd Bentley's Lakeland Revival, IHOP, and the Toronto Movement-From Andrew Strom

"D" writes:
I went to Lakeland 3 times. I was so drawn to go there. I really thought it was of God... I had so many supernatural experiences - to seeing a mystical Jesus with a third eye, angels talking to me, visions, being transported. I had one experience with my daughter being in the room and her experiencing it too. I was roaring like a lion, had gold dust and many other experiences.

The worst thing that happened to me is that it got sexual. This false Jesus was approaching me sexually and I fell into it. I still to this day do not understand how I could have been so deceived.

I have been a Christian since the age of 16. I am 49 now... I fell right in... hook, line and sinker. When I came home that last visit I became aware it was demonic, and I was surrounded and covered with demons literally, it was so horrible, all that I went through, you can not imagine... I was seeing demons and being touched sexually and tormentingly constantly.. it has been 1 1/2 years and I am still battling these demonic spirits. I cry out to the Lord everyday for total deliverance. It has been horrible. I have renounced and repented, but still fighting. How do we get free of this?

I can testify that I was infested with this foul eastern spirit, the kundalini. I was in a movement from 1992 - 2000 which had close links with the Toronto movement. From 2000 - 2006 I joined a church with links to Bill Johnson. I was desperate for God to move in my life and change situations and heal hurts and was very open to ministry - I had many in this movement touch my forehead and experienced the manifestations you describe - drunkenness, laughing and crying, shaking. I got dreams and visions and just before I left the structure (church) I had a vivid dream of a huge python that came through the back door and attached itself to my car, and also to rooms in my home. I was very disturbed and sought the Lord for an answer.

It took about 6 months before I was delivered, but God brought a couple over my path who God had trained and had victory over spiritual entities. Every time I was in their presence, I would get very anxious, and they would calmly pray for me and I could feel darkness leaving and my sanity restored. It was only after 6 months of these episodes, I was again in their presence and sensed a fight ensue in the Spirit. I was very anxious and fearful and could feel a huge snake in my spine - I was rigid and very uncomfortable - It felt as if this thing wanted to throttle me and rob me of my life. I called out to God and they quietly prayed - then I asked the Lady to pull this serpent out of my head - it felt as if it could exit near the top of my crown. She continued to pray and I got the word "kundalini " in my spirit and just commanded this thing by its name to go in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. I pled the blood as it was very frightening, and it left. I felt like a washed out rag, but I was free!

That was the last time I had deliverance, and my spiritual eyes have since opened and God has done a mighty work in me outside of the structure... Afterwards they were amazed and asked me what strange term I had used and where it came from - I had no idea except that it was God who gave me knowledge in that situation. Thank you for the info that has made everything clear to me! I Now have confirmation from where I was infected! May many of your readers heed the call of God to "come out and sever yourselves" from Babylon and its lies and deception and foul spirits, while there is time...

David Wilkerson also mentioned the kundalini spirit, and I researched it in late October, after having attended the Fredericks-burg (Virginia) Prayer Furnace at which Che Ahn ministered. There, I saw many of the manifestations you mention: hopping and jumping during "worship", falling backward at Che Ahn's touch, extreme jerkiness in several cases. Very uncomfortable with this, I came home and watched (my first time ever) videos of Todd Bentley. Needless to say, I was appalled...

SARAH writes:
I'm just about in tears over all of this...May and I watched the very first nights of the recent "outpouring of the Holy Spirit" on the IHOP webstream and boy, did that turn sour fast. Aside from the singing on the first night, everything was just messed up. AHH! It's breaking my heart! How many people do we know and love in KC?!
I've watched my beloved siblings laugh uncontrollably, jerk as though sick, stumble and speak as though drunk, and "sing in tongues" in complete chaos and without interpretation.

I've raised the issue among friends of being "drunk in the Spirit" and even though I prove over and over that God is for self-control, which they agree with, they continue to act like drunken fools! (See Titus 1:8and 2:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:6-7 which compared in the NKJV and NIV relates self-control with being sober, pointing to the fact that the Holy Spirit is not one who takes delight in being drunk at all, but in being sober-minded - fruit of the Spirit, what? Drunkenness is the complete opposite of being filled with the Holy Spirit! For sober-mindedness is a filling of Him!; 1 Peter 1:13, 4:7, and 5:8 )

BRENDA writes:
A very dear friend of mine who has been my prayer partner for years were lured into the enemy's web of deception about many of the ministries and manifestations that you spoke about. After reading and listening to your web broadcasts we had a powerful prayer session repenting, renouncing, and commanding any spirit that we had picked up from these false prophets/doctrines of demons, etc. to go from us in Jesus' name. We broke all kinds of things off of us. Most of it was deep repentance and renouncing - thank you for exposing the enemy and his tactics and all the deception that the church body has fallen deeply into...

Yes - if you have had "hands laid" or done"soaking prayer" under any of these kinds of ministries, it is veryimportant to RENOUNCE (from the very depths of your being inJesus' name) and also COMMAND OUT these 'kundalini' spirits or any other "anointing" that you have received. Remember, you must VIOLENTLY EXPEL these things in the name of JESUS. Be FREE in His mighty name!
I truly wonder what God is going to do to those ministries whohave been spreading this alien spirit right through the Body of Christ. Truly, Judgment must begin "at the house of God." Blessings to all, Andrew Strom.

For more on the Kundalini warning:

If you know of anyone who has had frightening experiences after associations with IHOP or the Lakeland Revival or through their associations with Rick Joyner or any others involved in the "signs & wonders movement", please contact me, as I would like to compile more testimonies such as these, in order to warn the brethren.
Just leave a comment and I will shoot you my e-mail address.

Thanks and God bless-Helen B/aka A Seed Sower

This is witchcraft that operates in this place. One person said she saw a "mystical jesus" with her "third eye." The "third eye" is synonymous with the all seeing eye on the back of the American dollar. It is also the eye of Ra or or eye of satan.

It is my prayer that believers have discernment when entering places like this.

Also, the spirit of bacchus operates in this place as well. This is demon god of wine and intoxication. This is why people are falling all over "drunk" in the "spirit."

Thank you for the article, Sister Helen. I surf through the "religious" channels after I come home from work at 11 pm and I am appalled at what I see on GOD TV and IHOP. Something is not right; my spirit tells me to change the channel quickly.

There is something foul happening and I want to stay as far from it as possible. Mike Murdock gives me the same feeling and the other fellow who speaks of sowing a seed of 1000 dollars for three months blessings....

What are things coming to? I will stick with Brother David Wilkerson, Carter Conlon, John Hagee and the writings of Leonard Ravenhill and the Puritians of years gone by!!

God will protect those who spend quality time with Him; if they set their own agenda aside and seek only HIM!

Thank you!

You are discerning Mike Murdock correctly....
John Hagee...ahhh...not so might want to re-think him a tad...he has yoked himself up with Jesse Duplantas...a Copeland right hand man...
So many have their own agendas today it can make your head spin..
