The Holy Spirit reveals things to people that cannot be spoken of. One key reason for my concerns with the Lakeland Revival is witnessed by this letter. I was warned of this by the Lord at the beginning of the revival. I agree with one who has had great concerns over the Lakeland Revival. This is a time to pray for Todd Bentley, but especially his wife and children. I hope he repents. Only the truth in the Word of God satisfies, convicts, and keeps us on that narrow path. We all stumble and can be refined when we stay in God’s truth. And finally, let us also consider ourselves, not thrusting upon ourselves the cloak of hypocrisy and unrighteousness.
Quotation from their website:
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….
The Fresh Fire Board of Directors
