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.

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.

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!
