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!…

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.

Prophet Bob Jones arrived at the Florida Revival in Lakeland, Florida to deliver powerful, releasing prophetic words.
He was a huge encouragement to the revival, and brought significant confirmation. Bob Jones sat with Todd Bentley for what seemed like for hours, delivering the prophetic word, encouraging the ministry, discussing angels and angelic visitation, and pouring into the Body.
Bob Jones is a prophet from the prophetic movement in the early part of the century. His words have come to pass over the years. He runs with Rick Joyner of Morningstar Ministries, Bobby Conner, and used to run with a little-known prophet by the name of Augustine Alcala. (This was the man who mentored Terry Kruse from our ministry, Miracle Life Now, and prophesied to Mike Bickle about his ministry that became IHOP. He has now passed away to be with the Lord.)
Terry noted yesterday how profound it was that the Florida Healing Revival and fire of God was soaring throughout Florida to the world, and in conjunction with that, the forest fires in Florida are also tearing across the land.
Certainly, the forest fires are a trajedy, but we noted how much of a confirmation it was that both spiritual and natural fires were ablaze.
Stay tuned for more info! Also, let us know if you are interested in learning more about the Holy Spirit, the prophetic, or revival!

Here are the much awaited Lakeland Airport revival photos.
Follow this link.
Todd Bentley was on fire, as was the rest of Fresh Fire ministries, Roy Fields, David Tomberlin, Jim Drown, and the rest of the team.
God Tv (god.tv) delivered another global broadcast of this history-making event: 15,000 people from around the world stormed the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport for a gorgeous, all-night meeting that went down in the history books for the shear fact of exposure.
In a divine appointment at lunch today running into Pastor Stephen Strader, he mentioned that now ALL the Christian media is attempting to broadcast, and that CIM was broadcasting the revival in the later parts of the afternoon around the country.
The media delivery is what sets this revival apart!
Also be praying for a new location for the revival as they consider obtaining an inflatable dome to house the hungry souls! Stay tuned for more details.

This should be called the Lakeland Center Revival! Why? Because for the next 14 days the Florida Revival and Healing Outpouring will be rooted at the Lakeland Center again.
The time at the Lakeland Linder Airport was amazing, and the photos will be coming soon on how powerful it was! (For now, check out these latest revival images from the Lakeland Center.)
But with being in the same location for a period of time the presence should be intense.
Many of the major ministers over the last few decades are visiting. Here, Randy Clark and his daughter came out to visit with Todd Bentley and Fresh Fire ministries, as well as to bless it. He mentioned how similar both moves were, and how uniquely God is moving.
They, like many others, just come to soak in the presence. The Lord is also manifesting mighty miracles in many individuals lives in the areas. I have had two friends starting to flow in prophetic dreams again. I myself have seen more divine appointments in the last 2 weeks than in the entire last 2 years.
God is up to something! If you can, come on down to Lakeland, Florida. Visit us at the Lakeland Center, or at Lakeland Linder Airport, or wherever you can.
Come and soak in the worship of Roy Fields. Come and listen to the powerful words of faith from Todd Bentley. Come and network with the brothers and sisters who have come for a touch from the Holy Spirit.
This is a powerful time!

This Friday and Saturday, the Florida Revival will be at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport!
We are taking this revival to open-air meetings. It is Christ-a-palooza! Better than Woodstock; its GODstock!
Just like Africa, the people who are hungry for a move of God are too numerous to keep inside.
Bring your lawn chair.
Bring your passion.
Bring a worshipping heart, because we are celebrating this outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the City Airport on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, May 11th, we will be taking the Florida Revival back to the Lakeland Center. We will then be planted there for 14 days!
