Foursquare Church President Jack Hayford on Lakeland, Florida Revival

Concerning “The Lakeland Revival”

The following was received by the Foursquare president, Pastor Jack Hayford, as a response to the many inquiries that have been received regarding the “Lakeland Revival.” This response is being sent with the confirmation of the board of directors of The Foursquare Church, including the executive team.

It is understandable that the reports of what may be a breakthrough of divine grace are raising questions regarding the veracity of the reports. Some ask what official stance the Foursquare movement will take toward this phenomenon.First, by any standard of biblical wisdom, it is far too early to assert anything on any terms. Understandably, the reports of miracle blessing would cause rejoicing in anyone who believes that God does, indeed, work miracles in our time. But equally understandable are the questions raised by experienced pastoral leaders who have dealt with “revival” situations that have proven deceptive and that have ultimately deterred sincere souls from an understanding of God’s Word and relationship with His Son.

Second, it has not been the practice of The Foursquare Church to draw conclusions hastily in such situations. Our own history as a movement is marked by miracle visitations, both in the United States and in many nations around the world where our ministry extends. We have seen pure, wise, and trustworthy leaders scorned by cynics—at times, even scorned by church leaders who oppose miracles in our time on any terms. That is one reason our general response is to be “slow to speak,” as the Bible instructs (James 1:19). It is for that same reason that we tend to position ourselves as Gamaliel did (Acts 5:34-41)—the rabbi whose influence is reported by the Apostle Paul as having shaped his own thinking in significant regards (Acts 22:3).

As president of our fellowship, and in conjunction with the elders serving on our board and the executives serving in our offices, I recommend that we all give ourselves to prayer for God’s grace upon us as a fellowship of churches. We want to be available to His Spirit, instructed by His Word, open to His will, and humbly slow to pass judgment on things that are outside our purview. We are not called to answer for any other ministry or its report; our responsibility is to seek to serve our flock, teach our people God’s Word and wisdom, and keep ourselves open to to the precious workings of His Spirit.

For the time being, our desire is to live in hope, believe for God’s best in our day, and counsel our leaders and our people to be filled with the Spirit of God. We ask the Spirit to give us humility in discernment and to guard our souls from being either gullible, doubt-prone, or resistant to whatever God may seek to do that proves Christ-exalting, Word-verifying, and enduring beyond sensation or mere excitement. With time, whatever is taking place in Lakeland and through activities issuing from its happenings will either verify or discredit the source of the manifestations.

We are in an hour of history, both nationally and internationally, that calls us to prayer and fasting. Let us give ourselves to seeking God, and let us give place to His visitation in ways that please His heart, seek His glory, and honor His Son, our Savior, Healer, Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, and Soon Coming King.

Stolen Innocence by Erin Merryn – incest survivor & Elissa Wall – FLDS church polygamy & child abuse

Eleven-year-old Erin Myrren’s life was marred the night she was sexually abused by her cousin, someone she loved and trusted.

As the abuse continued, and as she was forced to see her abuser over and over again in social situations, she struggled with self-doubt, panic attacks, nightmares and the weight of whether or not to tell her terrible secret. It wasn’t until a traumatic series of events showed her the cost of silence that she chose to speak out-in the process destroying both her family and the last of her innocence.

“Through her personal diary, written during the years of her abuse, Erin Myrren shares her journey through pain and confusion to inner strength and, ultimately, forgiveness. Raw, powerful and unflinchingly honest, Stolen Innocence is the inspiring story of one girl’s struggle to become a woman, and a bright light on the pain and devastation of abuse.”

“Stolen Innocence is written with conviction and clarity. Erin Myrren doesn’t hold back, and I respect her honesty and openness…By the end of the book, I thought I was reading passages from a much older adult than a high school senior. Erin has grown into a strong, wise, intelligent, perceptive, spiritual, caring adult.”

Forced to marry at 14, Oprah’s Lisa Ling provided a special report on the grotesque polygamist practices within the FLDS “church” (an offshoot from the formerly and sometimes secretly still polygamist Mormon “church” of latter day “saints”).

In the FLDS Church from the moment she was born, all Elissa Wall knew was adhering to her pedophile “prophet’s” commands. From her “teachings”, which were portrayed as Biblical and godly, all Elissa knew was that the “prophet’s” job was to dictate what was best for the girls, speaking as he was God’s earthly orator.

Made to marry her cousin at the age of 14, Elissa was brainwashed to believe her marriage was the will of God and therefore nothing could be done to stop it. Nevertheless she still asked for permission not to marry, tried to resist, and pushed back when her new “husband” tried to make a move for his first kiss.

Knowing she was different from other girls in her community, Elissa wanted an education, maybe even to become a nurse or teacher someday. During her year in public school, Elissa had come to realize things were possible that she’d never dreamed before. Elissa knew that she wanted to be a mother of good priesthood children, but not at 14-years-of-age!

Yet Uncle Fred had other plans for Elissa’s precious life, telling her “the prophet” wanted her to marry. Although it felt horrible inside and didn’t seem right, Elissa wanted to please God.

Cult leader and self-proclaimed “prophet” Warren Jeffs used religion to prey on and sexually abuse women and children. Don’t be duped by foul religion, read God vs. Religion by Paul F Davis and find freedom! Escape the enslavement and clutches of dead religion. Awaken to foul religion, pseudo-spiritual manipulation, and the need for proper godly confrontation. Learn truths to experience personal liberation.

For the broken hearted, Davis has written Breakthrough For A Broken Heart empowering us to overcome our disappointments and blossom into our dreams.

Davis commends Erin and Elissa for turning their mess into a message to help others like them across the globe similarly suffering and ensnared by sexual perverts. God have mercy and help the young girls entrapped get free from these foul excuses for men.

Davis in his compassion has even written a book for sex addicts to help them find freedom. Paul encourages men to read his book Stop Lusting & Start Living – A Sexual Recovery Plan.

Davis says, “God above is full of love and can set both the oppressed and the oppressor free simultaneously. Whosoever will humble their heart and cry out to Christ Jesus for salvation can be saved from their sin and self.”

Lakeland, Florida Revival – Todd Bentley & Fresh Fire Ministries – God Healing, Saving & Empowering

A Pastor from Auckland, New Zealand named Rob DeLuca prophesied several months ago a revival that is now taking place in Lakeland, Florida.

A 30-year-old by the name of Todd Bentley who God has raised up from Canada (Fresh Fire Ministries) is spearheading the revival. My wife is a Canadian from Toronto, Ontario. I was up there once in February and thought I was going to die. It was so cold I could feel it in my bones.

There was an amazing amount of healings I saw occur the two evenings I attended the Florida Revival Outpouring in Lakeland – May 4th and May 5th. Diabetes was healed, as was a girl with leukemia, a man deaf in one ear, an elderly lady came out of a wheelchair, and so much more!

An adult whose parents are ministers grew up bitter thinking his parents loved the souls of the world more than him. He got born again, giving his heart to Jesus, and forgave his parents.

Who knows when my wife and I are ready to start making babies, maybe we will move back to Canada where they don’t charge ridiculous medical fees to bring newborns into the world. I pray there be many born into the kingdom of God through this revival and all those to follow from those who learn to move in the Holy Spirit with a burden for souls.

Todd is a great man of God with sincerity, humility, and a genuine passion for Jesus. It’s beautiful to see what God is doing through Todd, an ex-convict who gave his life to Jesus and has since touched 65 nations and led over 1 million souls to Christ.

Keep your eyes on Jesus and keep crying out to God to revive you and your city!
