Thanks to Right Wing Watch for pulling this clip from Rick Joyner’s Tuesday Prospective Prophecies program.
Bentley brags about a lot of things in the full video, his ‘open visions,’ his healing services, his anointing and authority; in this clip he brags about ‘the Lord’ telling him to punch a man with a broken sternum and broken ribs who supposedly came up for prayer at Morningside in his first public meeting since Lakeland. (December 18 2009?) This fellow is supposedly named Craig, was supposedly suffering from stage 4 cancer, and who Joyner says is an employee of Morningside. Joyner and Bentley take cues from each other, and Joyner hastens to inject that Bentley hasn’t punched anyone since.
Since ‘the Lord’ told him to whallop Craig, how long is it going to be before ‘the Lord’ tells Bentley to punch someone else?
Craig apparently was in a truck accident, was separated and depressed as well as having stage 4 cancer. Note how many times Bentley uses the term ‘the Lord said’ or ‘the Lord told me.’
“Don’t try this at home unless this is the Lord.”
Joyner attempts to justify this supposed restored behavior by saying Jack Coe and Smith-Wigglesworth hit people. Joyner says if it isn’t ‘the Lord,’ Bentley would be sued. Craig just happens to be in the studio and steps in to chat with Joyner and Bentley. The punching Craig story starts about 9:02, in the full video, and Bentley does some cold reading. Bentley leads Craig into conversation into a root of bitterness and anger which caused Craig’s infirmities (spirit of cancer) and brags about his ‘words of knowledge’ and ‘vision’ and ‘word of the Lord’. Craig doesn’t offer to provide medical records for his supposed liver cancer, depression or broken bones. Bentley says earlier Craig had lung cancer. God doesn’t know the organs of the body and which ones need His touch? If you can stand to watch the full video, the unsubstantiated claims get even crazier as Joyner and Bentley plan to sell DVD’s and do a series on healing.
This is Bentley restored?
