(Churchwatch Central) Back in 2008 with many involved in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), the Lakeland revival was going on – with Todd Bentley being recognized as a New Breed (little god) on earth. This theology came out of the New Order of the Latter Rain (NOLR). (That is the sonship spirit, the power gospel and the kenotic Christ.)
‘Prophet’ Paul Cain (a heavy advocate of the NAR), announced he was now seeing the fulfillment of what the NOLR prophesied about the New Breed when he prayed for Todd Bentley. (Cain was involved in the NOLR.)
The NOLR raised its ugly head at the Lakeland revival, with many pushing the idea of a civil war in the church (noted by Charismatic journalist writer Lee Grady), Christ’s returning for this end-time revival (Wendy Alec), enforcing the end-times Apostolic/Prophetic government to establish their militant Joel’s Army (Wagner and Co.). But where was the ‘New Breed’ who Todd Bentley claimed God was raising up?
Compounding this deception, from 2008 onwards many Christians were astonished to see Bethel members and students trying to walk on water and walk through walls. Since that time, we’ve noticed that most of the uploaded YouTube videos and teachings are no longer available.
However, we have managed to find Bethel pastors teachings and promoting these New Breed practices in their pulpit and books.
Again, we need to stress that this assumption we are ‘little gods’ comes through this demonic spiritual ‘baptism’ promoted by these false teachers. If Christians embraced the NAR false ‘Full/Power Gospel’, they were encouraged to receive this second baptism to manifest their supernatural heavenly power here on earth, making them ‘little gods’ or ‘christs’.
