After day 100, the ministry team with Fresh Fire definitely needed some R & R. As the Florida Revival in Lakeland continues, Todd Bentley has taken some time off. Roy Fields has also had powerful stand-ins.
Andrew Phillips and Jillian Roberts led worship Thursday at the morning service at Ignited Church. Then, they both assisted during the evening service. From there, worship leader Jillian Roberts went on to lead worship at the morning service.
You can check out some of the worship here. (Go to this link. Then select July 10th.) Please be praying for the ministry team at Fresh Fire to be renewed in Christ, as well as for direction that the revival should take.
ALSO, as a note, revival has begun in the local area as well. At City Church of Tampa in Brandon, Florida, just a half-hour drive from Lakeland, revival has begun. Pastor Kent Davis brought in Terry Kruse and there has been powerful visitation from God. A totally different flavor of revival from that in Lakeland, FL, the revival at City Church of Tampa has been profound with Financial Breakthroughs, Spiritualy Breakthroughs and so much more.
The services are just Thursdays and Sundays for now, but plan to extend. Check back for more!

Todd Bentley was recently interviewed by Geraldo Rivera on Fox News about the Florida Revival in Lakeland, Florida.
I was very impressed at the way Todd replied to the questions put to him about offering doctor-verified evidence of healings, accountability for his finances and such.
Geraldo offered that if Todd were to produce evidence of healings and integrity on the finances that he would get behind Todd Bentley, Fresh Fire ministries, and the Florida Outpouring.
Here is the video:
It was a powerful interview.
Also, last night Todd mentioned that he saw the glory, liquid, honey cloud of God’s presence. I love this description of what God is doing.
Finally, here is a letter Todd Bentley wrote the critics of the revival. The tone is positive and the theology is fairly strong.

Many people in the Body have raised many questions about the validity of the revival going on in Lakeland, Florida. Many opinions are flying, yet few people are openly interacting about the topics in question. Perhaps it is time to handle some of these questions directly.
The following is a letter from Todd Bentley and the Fresh Fire team, “Bringing Biblical Light to Your Questions about the Lakeland Outpouring & Todd Bentley”
It answers many of the critiques of the revival.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and for hearing my heart on some of the issues that seems to be causing division and some confusion in the Body of Christ. Throughout the Old and New Testaments and in every age following, as far as I can determine, the Lord has given His people dreams and visions, signs and wonders, heavenly encounters and divine supernatural experiences that, for the most part, we cannot understand with our intellect. In the spiritual realm, God isn’t limited by our thinking!…

Thank you to our faithful readers who have been patient with our team while we had our team in Haiti. (See more on that here: www.cimhaiti.org.)
It has been almost 2 whole weeks since we have updated you on the powerful move of God STILL GOING ON HERE IN LAKELAND, FLORIDA!
Last night we visited and found another 3,000 – 4,000 people passionately pursuing God.
Todd Bentley and the Fresh Fire team from Vancouver, British Columbia has set up a semi-permanent tent to house over 10,000 people. Roy Fields continues to lead the masses into heart-felt worship, touching the hem of the Holiest of Holies.
Todd was not there last night, but will be back on today.
Check out the new photos from last night at this link.

Last night was powerful!
We could hardly leave off of worship. There was a spirit of holiness and worship that the crowd led. David Thomberlin kept trying to move the service forward, but the presence was too much.
Also, there was a surprise visit by John Arnott and his wife, Carol Arnott. John and Carol Arnott of the Toronto Blessing in Canada came to soak in the anointing and bless the revival. Todd Bentley was highly encouraged by them coming as generals of God from previous outpourings.
Along with that, there were powerful photos of the people from all walks of life coming to worship Jesus and get a touch from God. Check the latest florida revival photos out here.

Here are the updates from the Florida Revival Latest News:
- The Lakeland Ledger finally posted a front-page article in the Sunday edition of the local papers. The headline was “a working man’s revival.” Todd noted it from stage and the stadium audience roared! Read the article on the Ledger here.
- We have the latest and hottest new photos from the event. Check the latest ones here.
- Evangelist Training! Each day this week at Ignited Church at 1:30 pm, the ministry team is teaching people how to witness in the streets. Come to this powerful, free training!
- On Monday Night, the healing anointing was so heavy it was almost unmanageable. The 11th testimony of resurrection from the dead came out, along with multiple people getting out of their wheel chairs. The atmosphere of faith was tangible!
Tonight is expected to be as powerful. Come out if you are in the area. If you aren’t, then get on a plane, drive your car, ride a bike, pogo-stick if you have to!

Todd Bentley prophesied a breakout of revival: in Jena, Louisiana (where the Jena 6 event recently occurred) is going into its 7th week of revival! The Midway Baptist Church in Jena, LA, led by interim Pastor Bill Robertson, is on fire for the things of God!
Sources say that this sovereign move of God is shaking Louisiana from its racial division, and so much more. Read more here.
