Some have problems believing his fantastic stories - perhaps because of theological reasons - but I think more important is the question: Is he just telling tall tales to gain attention and validation?
Look again at the three different versions of the same story. This is not the parallel gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. This is the account as told by one man. That report is here: link
So I took it upon myself to review another Todd Bentley angel story.
In his 2003 teaching on angelic visitations, he states:
I first saw the angel called Healing Revival on December 5 of 2000 in Grant’s Pass. The angel came to me again in Albany the next February. He stood in the church service with his body going through the ceiling of the church. Then the Lord told me the angel’s name and that he was the same angel I saw in Grant’s Pass earlier. God also revealed to me that this angel was involved in the ministry of John Lake, William Branham, and John Knox in Scotland. This angel, the Lord said, is from the North West Healing Revival and is manifesting again as a sign that God is restoring the Voice of Healing revival and opening up the ancient wells.
However, in the circa 2004 video from TACF, he states that during the February 2001 Albany visitation, God told him that the angel he had seen in 1998 was the same as the angel “healing revival” that he had seen in Grants Pass- Dec 5,2000. timestamp starting at 4:39
So in the 2004 version he tells us he first saw this angel in 1998 (having been made aware that it was the same angel in 2001- God told him) yet in the 2003 version he tells us that he first saw this angel in 2000.
I have long maintained that he has been telling these angel stories so that he can claim that he has Branham’s and Lake’s personal angel- validating his own ministry.
As wacky as his "angelology" seems to be, I guess it no longer is important- if these tales are total fabrications.
Quoting a friend:
“Oh my, if he can’t even tell the details or major facts of such an important (to him) spiritual experience the same way, who in the world would trust him to tell the truth on anything?
