  1. Hi all. Just came across a website called iGlobal Legacy, which is set up by Bethel. Found it interesting how many churchs in the Uk that have signed up to the iglobal network, ( the list of churchs involved can be checked on the site by entering your postcode.)
    I have never come across ‘Global legacy’ before now and I find it very strange that there are church’s where I live in the Uk that have joined to this network as there is no reference to global legacy on the individual church websites. Which mains me question do people know their church’s have joined up to a Bethel revival network or is it a thing pastors/ leaders can do without telling the congregation, Hmmmmm??
    Does anybody know anything Bethels Global legacy, I would be interested in learning more.

    • absolutely dailym7…

      in their own words global legacy says:

      we expand Gods Kingdom by helping to build relationships between revival leaders, ministries & organisations around the globe & equip them to transform their spheres’ of influence..
      can anyone say 7 mountains mandate?? this is the agenda here.. pure latter rain dominionism

      certainly my bethelized church did exactly the same… “partnered & aligned” through Global legacy without saying a word to the membership… we were never informed – let alone consulted through any sort of discussion at a members meeting,,, it was simply done – signed up to … this sort of hoodwinking is completely unacceptable within a culture of honour….

      sadly as we are seeing, Pastors & leaders under the influence of Bethel’s teaching feel they can do & say anything they want… the lack of accountability is staggering whilst they drool over the hyped up reports of amazing signs & wonders….

      during the early days of my research I found out by accident that my church had indeed signed up… I was quite shocked — any church that has done this is well down the road to becoming “bethelized” some more than others

      Go check it out…. – search for global legacy- & enter your postcode…

      theologically, & I have said this before- we cant BUILD the Kingdom of God … it is not something that is observable & is a Kingdom that is being RECEIVED….

      • Thanks Zazzy for info. It’s very sad that leaders are making descisions on behalf of the church and members in the church are unaware.
        Very secretive indeed!

  2. & from there we can make a direct link to Benny Hinn

    Benny Hinn Praying at Kuhlman’s grave

    Dave Hunt, “Signs of the Times,” CIB Bulletin, Jan. 1992

    The secret to Hinn’s power is his peculiar anointing, which he connects with Kathryn Kuhlman and Aimee McPherson, founder of the Foursquare Gospel Church. He first felt the “full power of the Holy Spirit” on him at a Kuhlman healing service in 1973 — and her mantle has presumably fallen upon Hinn. He conducts his meetings almost exactly like hers — though it takes Hinn much longer to get his audience into the expectant mood that seems to generate psychosomatic “miracles. ” In an April 7, 1991 sermon, Hinn revealed that he periodically visits Kuhlman’s grave and that he is one of the few with a key to gain access to it. He also visits Aimee’s grave, where he says: “I felt a terrific anointing … I was shaking all over … trembling under the power of God … ‘Dear God,’ I said, ‘I feel the anointing.’ … I believe the anointing has lingered over Aimee’s body.”

  3. info on Kathryn Kuhlman: run by a spirit Guide??

    Source: http://www.pawcreek.org/articles/endtimes/KathrynKuhlmanandHerSpiritGuide.htm

    I am personally convinced that Miss Kuhlman was controlled by a spirit guide masquerading as the Holy Spirit. There appears to be no other possible answer. Coming to this conclusion has been a very tough and heart-rending experience. The following quote from Benny Hinn’s book, Good Morning, Holy Spirit, will give you a glance at her attachment to either the Holy Spirit or a spirit.

    “I looked up to see Kathryn burying her head in her hands as she began to sob. She sobbed and sobbed so loudly that everything came to a standstill. The music stopped. The ushers froze in their positions.

    “Everyone had their eyes on her. And for the life of me I had no idea why she was sobbing. I’d never seen a minister do that before. What was she crying about? It was told later that she had never done anything like that before, and members of her staff remember it to this day.

    “It continued for what seemed like two minutes. Then she thrust back her head. There she was, just a few feet in front of me. Her eyes were aflame. She was alive.

    “In that instant she took on a boldness I had never seen in any person. She pointed her finger straight out with enormous power and emotion — even pain. If the devil himself had been there, she would have flicked him aside with just a tap.

    “It was a moment of incredible dimension. Still sobbing, she looked out at the audience and said with such agony, ‘Please.’ She seemed to stretch out the word, ‘Plee-ease, don’t grieve the Holy Spirit.’

    “She was begging. If you can imagine a mother pleading with a killer not to shoot her baby, it was like that. She begged and pleaded.

    “‘Please,’ she sobbed, ‘don’t grieve the Holy Spirit.’

    “Even now I can see her eyes. It was as if they were looking straight at me.

    “And when she said it, you could have dropped a pin and heard it. I was afraid to breathe. I didn’t move a muscle. I was holding on to the pew in front of me wondering what would happen next.

    “Then she said, ‘Don’t you understand? He’s all I’ve got!’

    “I thought, ‘What’s she talking about?’

    “Then she continued her impassioned plea saying, ‘Please! Don’t wound Him. He’s all I’ve got. Don’t wound the One I love!’” (Good Morning, Holy Spirit, Benny Hinn, pp. 8-9.)

    Her words reveal a view of this spirit that is extremely unusual. She said, “Don’t you understand? He’s all I’ve got.” Again, she said, “Please don’t wound Him, He’s all I’ve got. Don’t wound the One I love.”

    The Holy Spirit absolutely never speaks of Himself. He glorifies Jesus Christ in His church and in you and Jesus Christ alone. Jesus said,

    “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16:13-14).

    She was enamored with this “spirit” that came upon her. Often she spoke of her fear that he would leave her. She would wait behind the stage, even at times while the service languished for this “spirit person” to manifest himself. When he came she was electric and performed as the greatest of actors. Hinn continued in his description of Kuhlman’s emphasis on this spirit whom she called the Holy Spirit. He said,

    “In my church, the pastor talked about the Holy Spirit. But not like this. His references had to do with the gifts or tongues or prophecy — not “He’s my closest, most personal, most intimate, most beloved friend.” Kathryn Kuhlman was telling me about a person that was more real than you or I.” (Ibid, p. 9.)


  4. Right about here I reckon : with Keith Luker & the crowd from the BURN movement..

    & here

    From wiki:

    Lonnie Frisbee (June 6, 1949 – March 12, 1993) was an American Pentecostal evangelist and self-described “seeing prophet” and mystic in the late 1960s and 1970s. Despite, or possibly because of, his hippie appearance and being a man who says he struggled with homosexuality,he had notable success as a minister and evangelist especially in the signs and wonders faith movement of the 1970s and 1980s.

    Lonnie was also credited to be one of the first if not the first to “toke the Ghost”

    * I have written about mantles previously on the blog so if you need additional info on it – just enter mantles into the search & it should pop up or scroll down through the home page posts…*

  5. Where does Lonnie Frisbee fit into all this? Been doing some reading about how he had an influence on Kathryn Kuhlman.
