June 23, 2008

 

Introduction: On June 10, 2008, Christian Research Service tried to contact Wendy Alec at God TV for a discussion and statement, but was told by a God TV representative that due to the volume of e-mails and phone calls God TV receives, Wendy doesn't take personal phone calls or reply to e-mails. 

 

However, on June 10, CRS was contacted by Mike Zobel, the U.S. Partner Services Manager for God TV. During the phone call, Zobel was kind and considerate, and listened intently to CRS's concerns, which included what Wendy Alec said in her "prophetic word" as opposed to what Jesus Christ said in Matthew chapter 24.

 

While Zobel said CRS's concerns would be forwarded to Wendy Alec's personal assistant, as of this writing, there has been no reply or public statement from Wendy Alec, Mike Zobel, or anyone at God TV.

 

***************

 

The Florida Outpouring/Lakeland revival is hardly a ground-breaking event. The stories streaming in from it grow more bizarre on a daily basis, and resurrect horrendous memories of the counterfeit Toronto Blessing and Brownsville revivals, where human beings--professing Christians--crawled around on their hands and knees like animals, growled and howled like wolves, shook and rolled in the floor hysterically, and laughed uncontrollably.

 

Now, over a decade later, many still believe the Toronto and Brownsville revivals were a new move of God.

 

Nevertheless, during the Florida Outpouring/Lakeland revival telecast of June 7, 2008, Todd Bentley, founder of Fresh Fire Ministries, read a "prophetic word" from Wendy Alec to his viewing audience, saying that the "Lord" had spoken to Wendy and that "Jesus Christ" would visit the Lakeland revival "in person" on Sunday, June 8, 2008.

 

In short, Wendy Alec prophesied Jesus' return. Todd Bentley read her prophecy to his dedicated followers worldwide. But Jesus Christ didn't show up at the revival. End of story? No.

 

There is more to the story than meets the eye, for it wasn't the first time Wendy Alec has claimed a prophetic word from the "Lord" and a visitation from "Jesus Christ."

 

Prophet to the populous? 

 

Wendy Alec is the co-founder of God TV and the co-host of The Rory and Wendy Show ( http://www.roryandwendy.com/about.html ). She is the author of Journal of The Unknown Prophet: Legacy To A Renegade Generation and Journal Of The Unknown Prophet: A Visitation Of Jesus Christ, among other books.

 

According to the official website devoted to Journal of The Unknown Prophet: Legacy To A Renegade Generation, Wendy Alec is a "Seer and Scribe" and a "Prophet To The Media"   http://www.unknownprophet.com ). The book has received enthusiastic endorsements from John Paul Jackson, Francis Frangipane, Rick Joyner, John and Lisa Bevere, Dr. R.T. Kendall, Colin Dye, Stephen L. Hill, Rodney Howard-Browne, Paul Cain, and Steve Schultz.

 

Of the book, Stephen L. Hill encourages the reader to, "Read passionate messages from the One who loves us more than life itself. Hear what Jesus Christ is saying to His Beloved Bride" [Ibid.].

 

Rick Joyner, founder of Morning Star Ministries, claims that, "The Journal was life to me, and spoke directly to several things that were going in my life in such a way that I know that it is a 'Living Word.'" [Ibid.]

 

Rodney Howard-Browne was so impressed with the book, he considers it, "Inspired by the Holy Spirit. I believe 'The Journal of the Unknown Prophet' is a challenge to every believer and minister of the Gospel, especially in the times we are living in right now. God has truly anointed Wendy as a prophet in these last days." [Ibid.]

 

The book's website also carries the following endorsement from Paul Cain: "Prophet Paul Cain concludes that the Journal of the Unknown Prophet 'is a prophetic work for our time - it is one that truly reflects a union of both the Word and the Spirit.'" [Ibid.]

 

According to an ElijahList bookstore description of the book, Journal Of The Unknown Prophet: A Visitation Of Jesus Christ, Wendy Alec experienced numerous visitations from "Jesus Christ," whose words she recorded in the book:

During a ten day period in November of 1999, Wendy Alec received a visitation from the Lord Jesus Christ. He spoke of mercy, He warned of judgment... on the world's trading systems, on the media...Upon the church.  He wept.

 

In two later separate visitations, He spoke in anguish of the last days assignments against the elect. He warned of the great blinding, of seduction, lust and Jezebel and the great falling away...

 

This is the extraordinary record of His discourse.

And, from the God TV online bookstore, a brief description of Wendy Alec's Journal Of The Unknown Prophet: A Visitation Of Jesus Christ states that:

Author: Wendy Alec Wendy's powerful book is a divine revelation on the Lord Jesus Christ and His cry for a deeper intimacy with each and every person on this earth. For the unbeliever, it presents a profound picture of who Jesus really is and how much he cares, how He has always been there for them, and how he wants to enrich their lives. For the believer, it is an extraordinary challenge to walk in the fullness of everything God has in store for His beloved children. [ Click here ] 

Thus, according to Wendy Alec and her peers, she is a seer and scribe, prophet to the media, and a prophet of God for the last days, whose inspired writings dictate the very words of "Jesus Christ."

 

But despite Wendy Alec's popularity and credentials, her prophetic words, visions, and visitations from "Jesus" must be tested by what God has already revealed in His word (1 Thessalonians 5:21; 1 John 4:1).

 

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).

 

If Wendy Alec is a true prophet of God, then Christians need to sit up and pay close attention. If she isn't, God's word will judge her as a false prophet; for all it takes is one false prophecy to be a false prophet:

 

You may say in your heart, How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken? When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him (Deuteronomy 18:21-22).

 

To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them (Isaiah 8:20).

 

Wendy Alec's 'prophetic word'

 

The following is a word-for-word transcript of a YouTube video titled, "Jesus to make personal appearance in Lakeland," featuring Todd Bentley. As of this writing, the 3:02 video may be reviewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4Wc18CDsRA .

 

Todd Bentley stated:

I'm telling you right now, I believe that people can receive impartation. Now, let me tell you the prophetic word that, that Wendy [Alec] gave me, for those watching. And, this is, this is why I believe tomorrow night's meeting--if you live in, you live, you're watching me on the internet and you're local, and you can be here Sunday night. Listen to this:

At this point, Bentley reads Wendy Alec's "prophetic word":

"The Lord just spoke to me and said, 'This is what will happen tomorrow night. The King and the King's anointing falls tomorrow night. The eighth of June, the anointing of the King of glory falls.'

 

"Jesus said, 'I am coming in person. The King is coming in person.' I sense so strongly there will be a personal, divine visitation of the Lamb of God--the Lord Jesus Christ to the revival tomorrow night.

 

"He will come in the clouds in His chariot, surrounded by a great angelic host, because the great honoring of the Lamb of God. The King of glory is coming to visit Lakeland; to visit the revival; to visit the outpouring. The devil trembles with that knowledge.

 

"For tomorrow, the King of glory sets foot upon the stage in divine, personal, one-to-one visitation."  

Immediately afterwards, Todd Bentley stated:

Now, for all those watching and even that just don't understand the nature of the prophetic, though I'm open to a, the Lord can appear. Now, I've seen the Lord. I'm not suggesting there's going to be a physical, flesh, Jesus Christ on the plat[form]. I hope, I hope you understand, we're talking about in atmosphere; we're talking about in spiritual experience; we're talking about in impartation.

 

Now, now, Roy, if tonight and last night's worship is any indication that something is changing in the realm of the glory; something about the King of glory.

 

Oh God, we wanna set a place up in the throne of our hearts, more than anything else, for you to come and visit! Come on! Who wants to have the King come in His glory?! Come on! Lift up... (And the audience cheered) [End of video] 

At this point, it is important to note the following:

 

1. Wendy Alec is recognized by herself and her peers as a prophet of God and, like Bentley, claims multiple visitations from "Jesus Christ."

 

2. Wendy Alec delivered a "prophetic word." Todd Bentley read it publicly.

 

3. Wendy Alec's "prophetic word" did not say that Jesus would visit the revival in spirit, but said twice that Jesus would visit "in person" and that "Jesus" would set His "foot upon the stage in divine, personal, one-to-one visitation."

 

4. No sooner than Todd Bentley read Wendy Alec's "prophetic word," he did an about-face and inserted his own protective disclaimer, stating in part that, "I'm not suggesting there's going to be a physical, flesh, Jesus Christ on the plat[form]."

 

5. It is odd that Todd Bentley would contradict Wendy Alec who, like Bentley, has claimed multiple visitations from "Jesus Christ," and is one of Bentley's loyal supporters ( http://www.god.tv/ ).

 

 

Certainly, Jesus Christ can do anything He desires; He is God Himself in human form, second Person of the Trinity, Lord and Savior. However, Jesus will not change His mind or contradict His word. And when anyone, whether male or female, claims to be a prophet of God, then claims an "in person" visitation from Jesus Christ, Christians would do well to remember what God's word says about the return of Jesus Christ, and trust in it over-and-above what man or woman teaches:

 

Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him. For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect (Matthew 24:23-24).

 

So if they say to you, 'Behold, He is in the wilderness,' do not go out, or, 'Behold, He is in the inner rooms,' do not believe them (Matthew 24:26).  

 

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone (Matthew 24:36).

 

Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming (Matthew 24:42). 

 

For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will (Matthew 24;44).

 

He said to them, It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority (Acts 1:7).

  

Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame (Revelation 16:15).

   

Even the very thought of prophesying a visitation from Jesus or His return is false, due to the fact that Jesus said, no one knows and it is not for you to know and that every eye will see Him.

 

Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen (Revelation 1:7).

 

Jesus Christ's words are non-negotiable. It wasn't the Jesus of the Bible that spoke to Wendy Alec.

  

In whom do you trust? Wendy and Todd, or God?

 

For decades, the Charismatic movement has spawned a multitude of false prophets, false teachers, and false healers--all of whom have mocked, plundered, and twisted the truths in God's word--all of whom have caused tremendous damage to the cause of Christ worldwide.

 

False prophets use God's name as a catch-phrase to establish authority and power over the innocent and unwary. They use the Bible as a stepping-stone to further their own agendas, and open the door to further false prophecies, false revelations, false visions, and demonic activity.

 

When they are caught in a false prophecy, false prophets run and hide, have "no reply" and play damage-control, and refuse to be accountable--first to God, then to the body of Christ. After all, they know their dedicated followers will make excuses for them, and use threat-phrases such as "heresy hunter" and "Stop attacking God's anointed!" 

 

It wasn't the Jesus of the Bible that spoke to Wendy Alec. Jesus Christ did not appear "in person" at the Lakeland revival on June 8, 2008, nor did He set "foot upon the stage in divine, personal, one-to-one visitation." Wendy Alec's "prophetic word" flat-out denies the very words of Jesus Christ in Matthew chapter 24, and calls Him a liar. 

 

And when judged by God's word, Wendy Alec is a false prophet.

 

Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds (Jeremiah 14:14).

  

"Behold, I am against the prophets," declares the LORD, "who use their tongues and declare, 'The Lord declares.' Behold, I am against those who have prophesied false dreams," declares the LORD, "and related them and led My people astray by their falsehoods and reckless boasting; yet I did not send them or command them, nor do they furnish this people the slightest benefit," declares the LORD (Jeremiah 23:31-32).

 

False prophets present a clear and present danger to the spiritual welfare of the believer, as well as those searching for the real Jesus Christ. God's word judged Wendy Alec a false prophet well before her "prophetic word" was put into print and read by Bentley.

 

And Christians' worldwide would do well to heed God's commands and avoid Wendy Alec, Todd Bentley, God TV, and the Florida Outpouring/Lakeland revival at all costs.

 

Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds (2 John 1:9-10).
