Florida Revival Media and Highlights

April 30, 2008

The Media is getting highly involved in this revival.

The Florida Revival media outbreak has been unprecedented. Between the Youtube.com user Swiftfiresharnael and Channel 10 News visiting, the message from Lakeland, Florida is that Revival is happening in Florida.

No matter what you may think of revival, Todd Bentley, or moves like this, one thing you cannot deny is that God is getting some major media play.

One of the media highlights of the evening was that a reporter with Channel 10 News came to the Lakeland Center to cover the Florida Revival story. She came up to the stage to testify that she came to the event sick with nausea. While in the bathroom, she heard Todd Bentley pray for healing and was immediately healed.

She then said that she had to run because she was going to cover the story on the 11 o’clock news! Again, no matter what you think of the people involved, Todd Bentley, Stephen Strader, their churches (Ignited Church in Lakeland, Florida and Fresh Fire Ministries in Canada), or even people in Polk County; God is doing something new.

Other highlights from the revival were:

  • Visiting preacher Bobby Conner preached
  • I got photos of a elderly woman being healed
  • They went until 1 a.m., praying for every single person who wanted to (6,000+!)
  • I was standing there as a girl received a healing with her ears
Having been brought up under evangelist Terry Kruse, who served Augustine Alcala and Bob Jones, I was used to healing services. The means may be unconventional, but hey! When did Jesus move conventionally?!
