What Is The Toronto Blessing

Are people still receiving the Toronto Blessing?

Moderator - Yes, there are small amounts of people accepting that false doctrine. Not near as many as the false doctrine has been exposed with scriptures.

What is the Toronto Blessing? Never heard of it. Eliza4969
---Elizabeth on 3/19/08


The Lion is a symbol of Satan, 1 Peter 5:8.
The Lion is a symbol of God, Hos. 5:14, 11:10, 13:7-8, Ezekiel 1:10, refers also to lion faced heavenly creatures. 10:14, Rev. 4:7. Many ministers, do not have discernment, you might, in fact have more gifts activated then your pastor. Strange things are happening in the Spirit realm, Many are demonic, However, many are actualy Holy Spirit activated. Yes, I know what you are thinking.

john, did you read all of the Moderators' comments. First hand reports.
I remember a well known TV evangelist that many like, who was there, he said on national TV that the animal transformations were not of God.
The 'barking of the seals' stopped after those two women received a deliverance. I don't know of any great men of God turning into an animal in the Bible. I do know the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Bruce, I said this because of a sermon that I heard, I cannot remember the scriptures that were given, however, I did find that setting watchmen on walls was an ancient custom for the purpose of warning of the approach of an enemy. Here the idea is that Gods prophets and ministers were like watchmen who could not hold their peace or give Him rest day or night until prophecy was completely fulfilled in the full restoration of Jerusalem and Israel in their land, as in Isaiah 21, and Ez. 3 and 33. PART ONE

PART 2: I did happen to find this one though. Isaiah 56:10....His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. 11. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand; they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. [So maybie his watchman are finally learning how to bark. Ha Ha Ha.... To me God certainly has a sense of humor.]

Mt24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
---Rev_Herb on 3/13/07


Cynthia,
"Back in the times of Christ the "Watchman" would sit on top of the walls and bark like a dog and some would roar like a lion"

Could you point us to the scripture that talks about this?
---BRUCE5656 on 3/13/07


God is working in mysterious ways His wonders to perform, In the morning while it is still dark, the roosters wake me up. I do not need any alarm clock, could it possibly mean, that God is saying WAKE UP, this is the beginning of a brandnew day? Back in the times of Christ the "Watchman" would sit on top of the walls and bark like a dog, and some would roar like a lion, Though these things could seem demonic, Could it be that it is God Ordained? We must have discernment at this time.
---Cynthia_1 on 3/13/07


I told you all about this a long time ago and got my case jumped big time for for saying this and the Pencicola rivival (both connected)were of the devil. But then again what do I know?
---Rev_Herb on 3/12/07


The assistant pastors in our church went there for a whole week. They never saw anything out of order. They saw nothing but the Love of God and people getting blessed and taught in a loving way. Many people were saved every day and many were delivered from addictions. They came back so refreshed they can't waith to go back. They said all those wierd reports are just a bunch of lies. and gossip.
---john on 3/12/07




You think the Toronto Blessing is something. You haven't seen anything yet. The great apostasy has now begun as we see thousands of similar groups spirnging up around the world within the next three to four years, deceiving tens of thousands, if not millions, of Christians. Put on the whole armor of God to protect yourself from such deception. Remember, that even the elite will be deceived, if it were possible. And if it's possible the elite can be deceived, how much more would you.
---Steveng on 3/12/07


I heard of this a few years back. It bothers me that people are still following this. The gift of tongues does exist, but the devil imitates God's gifts imperfectly. When I heard that people were sounding and behaving like animals I knew that this was the Devil at work, preying upon those who desire to experience miracles no matter what the cost.

The NT is clear, angelic tongues occur, but always with a translator, and there is no mention of heavenly angels sounding like base animals.
---lorra8574 on 3/12/07


SAM, read all of the Moderators' comments here.

Two ladies from my sister's church went to the T.B. When they came back, they barked like seals. I kid you, not. Sis said they would sit up front together and caused a distraction for months in her church. She said they would clap like seals and barked like seals. Arrre arrre arrre. This is what they brought back from the T. Blessing.
---Diane on 3/12/07


I've heard that some people came back as lions, roaring, and others came back as various animals to their home churches.
Demonic, new age teaching, creeping back into the churches does not surprise me.
Many are distracted, watchmen on the walls might be sleeping in some churches. I see by your posts, Sam, that you are alert. We need to guard our hearts.
---Diane on 3/12/07


Pastor John Kilpatrick's wife visited the Toronto church, and her experience with God there started the whole Brownsville revival, which was absolutely a true move of God that will go down in history right alongside the Welsh revivals and Azuza Street. BUT, I've heard about some pretty weird stuff going on in Toronto these days. Don't know the validity of the stories, but- flying kites and blowing bubbles in the sanctuary during worship service?!- what's up?!
---DELOE on 12/9/05


Alan of UK there are many who have come back from Toronto Airport Convention Fellowship thinking that their Christian life is now somehow enriched from their attendance. The is a ploy of the devil. Do not wish for this experience on yourself. God is not a God of chaos. Services there are chaotic, a shambles, sound like a farm-yard. Another gospel is preached, it is demonic.

I have met one person who went to the Airport service at Toronto. She thought before she went that she was a Christian. She was so much affected by the service that she knew for the first time that God really loved her.
And since then has never stopped talking to people about her faith.
I wish I had had an experience like that.
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/30/05


i don't understand the purpose of why anyone would allow such things in a church. Are the people really that ignorant or are they truly demon-possessed? Is they any benefit at all resulting from the services, like real healings or bondages broken or salvations happening? It sounds more like a stage performance done to entertain the audience, rather than a ministry.

Moderator - I believe the people are that ignorant with little discernment and are looking for signs and wonders. Only a few of the people were demon-possessed.
---Eloy on 11/30/05


Eliza4969 when you see a new paragraph starting with the word Moderator this shows that the moderator is adding something to the statement or question raised by the person who's name appears at the end. You will see this quite often because the various moderators often feel that they need to add or clarify something. Proof that what we are saying is being read by those who work for ChristiaNet.
---emg on 11/30/05


I know by discernment but what i meant was were they making a scene or what? this preacher you are talking about came to lee's summit, missouri a couple of years ago and i don't recall any chicken's clucking or any scenes going on but we did stay for half we did leave early before he was done so maybe that happened later.

Moderator - I have only mentioned a few things that happened. I could write a short book on the events.

emg, I have quetion for you. How can you tell that you had a demonic possessed person sitting beside you, what made it obious? maybe if you all are saying that the toronto blessing is not real just maybe it is all stagged for the gain of money.

Moderator - I was the one that made that statement. Discernment is how.
---Eliza4969 on 11/29/05


Is this the Toronto Blessing that first started at Toronto airport?

Moderator - Yes, the Toronto Blessing with Pastor John and Rodney.
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/28/05


Your reference to someone making chicken noises reminds me of a video I was shown of one service. A man who's surname was Scotland (can't remember his first name) was laughing uncontrollably - in the pulpit - and every now and then would shriek COCKADOODLE DOO. He would then go hysterical again and so would the congregation. Of God? - NEVER. Yes moderator tell as much as we need to know then hopefully no-one will wish to copy any of it.

Moderator - The third church Rodney Howard Browne was the preacher. The worship lasted around 1 hour and toward the end of the worship Browne paced the pulpit looking at the people. I had a demonic possessed person by me and it was obvious. Browne saw it also so he made her his first example after the worship. He had 2 men grab her as he spoke in tongues. She yelled and screamed. He said get her boys. Her shirt went in the air several times leaving her inproperly exposured for all to see. After a few minutes and a few good pushes she dropped to the ground. Next he jumped on top of her speaking in tongues. Finally she got quiet. Of God, you tell me.

I have never went myself, but a couple of friends went and they said they felt pains like labour pains when the people prayed for them. And they thought it was great. Not something I'd want, they also said the walked in "the Spirit", and when I asked them to explain that, one guy showed me and he looked like he was walking like an elephant.

I would personally like to know as much as possible about this because Christians need to know that this is still going on and that Christians are still being caught up it it. If you have more to tell then please do so, we are all here to learn.

Moderator - During the worship service, one of the horn players grabbed himself (yes, think the worse) and then still holding himself walked around the pulpit making chicken sounds and then after 5 minutes of this fell on the ground shaking. Demonic, you better believe it was. This was a different church then the first one I mentioned. Want a Toronto Blessing comment from a third church?
---emg on 11/28/05


Moderator please tell more of what you witnessed. I know someone who went to the church in Toronto and what he described to my family seemed totally demonic yet cleverly disguised (to many)in Christianity. Isn't that the way the devil works though?

Moderator - I went to the meetings prayed and fasted and asked the Lord for discernment. I went up the prayer line and said that if this is of God let me know and if not of God let me know. About 10 men got around me and started praying for me to receive the Toronto Blessing. After about 3 minutes and nothing happening, the men started getting louder and louder stating to receive it. After 5 minutes, some started yelling "can't you FEEL IT, IT is ALL AROUND you". Then most of men started screaming in a fearful way and stated it's all around and now IT'S coming back on us. Then they started falling all over the ground and rolling around screaming stating "IT'S ON ME". Demonic to say the least. Want to know more?
---emg on 11/28/05


Moderator, you are probably better able than I am to explain what the Toronto Blessing was.

Moderator - I went to several meetings to observe what was occuring and why it was occuring. Big picture - meetings would open with worship (good), second some Bible reading (good) and third the Pastor or some people in the congregation would be begin to laugh during the preaching (bad). One pastor threw his Bible over his back and stated "I guess since we have laughter we don't need this Bible anymore". I saw many demonic manifestations - ask and I will describe them.
