Todd Bentley’s ‘Emma’: Angel or Demon?

Source – Slice of Laodicea

The mega-”revival” going on in Lakeland, Florida that is being carried on God-TV every night features the latest hot property in the charismatic realm,Todd Bentley. Some Christians believe he is bringing down the power of the Holy Spirit as all kinds of manifestations are taking place at these events. Healings are being claimed and even the media is getting in on the act as a network affiliate anchorwoman claimed to be healed of a migraine by Todd. Here is a quote from one of Todd’s articles on his angelic visitations. The Bob Jones referred to is one of the Kansas City Prophets who claimed to be specially visited by an angel to start the modern prophetic movement.


“Now let me talk about an angelic experience with Emma. Twice Bob Jones asked me about this angel that was in Kansas City in 1980: “Todd, have you ever seen the angel by the name of Emma?” He asked me as if he expected that this angel was appearing to me. Surprised, I said, “Bob, who is Emma?” He told me that Emma was the angel that helped birth and start the whole prophetic movement in Kansas City in the 1980s. She was a mothering-type angel that helped nurture the prophetic as it broke out. Within a few weeks of Bob asking me about Emma, I was in a service in Beulah, North Dakota. In the middle of the service I was in conversation with Ivan and another person when in walks Emma. As I stared at the angel with open eyes, the Lord said, “Here’s Emma.” I’m not kidding. She floated a couple of inches off the floor. It was almost like Kathryn Khulman in those old videos when she wore a white dress and looked like she was gliding across the platform. Emma appeared beautiful and young-about 22 years old-but she was old at the same time. She seemed to carry the wisdom, virtue and grace of Proverbs 31 on her life.

She glided into the room, emitting brilliant light and colors. Emma carried these bags and began pulling gold out of them. Then, as she walked up and down the aisles of the church, she began putting gold dust on people. “God, what is happening?” I asked. The Lord answered: “She is releasing the gold, which is both the revelation and the financial breakthrough that I am bringing into this church. I want you to prophecy that Emma showed up in this service-the same angel that appeared in Kansas city-as a sign that I am endorsing and releasing a prophetic spirit in the church.” See, when angels come, they always come for a reason; we need to actually ask God what the purpose is. Within three weeks of that visitation, the church had given me the biggest offering I had ever received to that point in my ministry. Thousands of dollars! Thousands! Even though the entire community consisted of only three thousand people, weeks after I left the church the pastor testified that the church offerings had either doubled or tripled.

During this visitation the pastor’s wife (it was an AOG church) got totally whacked by the Holy Ghost- she began running around barking like a dog or squawking like a chicken as a powerful prophetic spirit came on her. Also, as this prophetic anointing came on her, she started getting phone numbers of complete strangers and calling them up on the telephone and prophesying over them. She would tell them that God gave her their telephone number and then would give them words of knowledge. Complete strangers. Then angels started showing up in the church.”

“Squawking like a chicken” and “barking like a dog” are attributed to the Holy Spirit by Todd Bentley. This is blasphemy. His “angel” Emma is the described in the same way by Johanna Michaelson, author of The Beautiful Side of Evil, in which demonic forces portrayed themselves to her as being full of goodness and light. It was only later that they revealed their true faces to her. These counterfeit angels are bringing further confusion on the church and promoting doctrines of demons, namely the idea that we need to see into the supernatural realm and that we need the intercessory help of angels. Hebrews 11 tells us that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen! But that won’t draw a crowd like these “manifestations”.

Bentley’s entire body of angel teachings detract from the glory of Jesus Christ and have Christians seeking after “angelic” experiences rather than the Lord himself. These people will have “angelic” experiences all right, but how quickly we forget that there are dark angels as well as angels of heaven. Satan is a master counterfeiter. His very name, Lucifer, means “light bearer”. As Warren Smith describes in his book, “The Light that Was Dark”, it is plain that even what seems so good and true and lovely can be a counterfeit. As the deception is deepening, more and more we need to ask the Holy Spirit to bring the Word to mind to discern every idea, every prophet who comes in Christ’s name. The Lord told us that many things will be done in Christ’s name. Not all is of the true Christ. “Here is Christ, there is Christ”, the Lord told us they will say. “Believe it not.” Christ told us “for many will come in my name”. That time is now and the deception is as close as God TV tonight that is airing this Florida “revival”.

  1. Fascinating! Thank you for documenting this current movement. There does seem to be something demonic about it.

    Grace and Peace

    thank you soo much for standing up for the truth god bless you

  3. Steve Bradshaw Says:

    He calls his angel Emma O. Emma O (short sound ‘O’ as in Ostrich), is also the Buddhist (Japanese language) demon that stands at their gate of Hell sending souls to their designated places of torment.

  4. Hey, I just wanted to say that I think that there are somethings going on that I wonder about, and then there are things that seem legite.

    As far as the animals sounds are concerned, I don’t see how that can be Biblical. Thanks for this article. Good stuff to pray about

    God Bless

  5. Beba Novi Sad Says:

    May God bless all of those who stand up for The truth. I’ve seen that man on the internet and i didn’t have any peace of further watching him, but i know people who are actually “fallowing” him. It sad that we don’t use Scripture to “check” the “truth” he speaks about.

  6. This topic is quite hot in the net at the moment. What do you pay attention to while choosing what to write about?

  7. Whenever I see Todd Bentley, be it on TV or the internet,

    I have an inexplicable uncomfort. Something definately not of God.

    It scares me…

  8. When some christians were engaged in spiritual warfare in a part of the Netherlands, they met ‘by accident’ a woman who had attended several ‘fresh fire’ meetings.
    When they prayed for her, the Lord showed them that the angel Emma was involved in those meetings. It was seen that Emma touched two demons who ‘belonged’ to this woman, and they grew bigger. At the end, this woman was more tormented by these demons, than before.
    The warriors summoned Emma to say whether she was Emma-O or not. Her/his answer was ‘so you say’. Later he had to admit that this was also not his real name, but another alias.
    When the warriors ordered him to say his real name, he had to comply.
    The Lord also revealed the real angels behind the angel Mary…
    Well, it is for sure, that Todd Bentley is engaged in worshipping fallen angels, and many Christians, followers of him, Rick Joyner, Bob Jones and Peter Wagner fall prey to the enemy.

    Joseph Fischer or Title: Emma, an angel of light.

  9. Prophetic Ministry is a wave of the Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit of God are manafested. Angelic visitions are purpose given by the Father. When the angel came to Daniel, it was revealed to Daniel, what was to come.

    Daniel 10:12
    Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13

    Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Angels are servents and ministers to us the heirs of the promise of Jesus Christ. We are commended to Seek the Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone, for He died for us and it is through HIm theat we have eternal life.

    We are living in very sensitive times and God is requiring of us discernment to discern the times and the seasons of His Coming. Ten virgins were waited but 5 were left behind because they did not have oil. God wants us to be ready for His coming. We must turn away from any vainglory that exalts itself above the mind of Christ. For God has given us a gospel given by creative angels, but a gospel in Christ, the author and finisher of our Faith, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Please run away from anyone who exalts any other name above the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. for indeed only His Name is worthy to be praised!!!

  10. Meaning “For God has NOT given us a gospel given by created angels, but a gospel in given by Christ” the Author and Finisher of our Faith

    • The real name of Emma alias Emma-O is Sifaniël, a fallen angel. He is involved in religious error and teachings.

      Todd Bentleys angel Mary is in fact a trinity:
      Emma (Great)
      Jezebel (Who is like Bel or Baal?)
      Selma (Protected by the gods)
      This is the (fallen) angel who appears to RC believers.
