There is a peculiar absurdity with frauds in the church. Although they claim to have amazing faith, they are the first to lack any form of true faith when it comes to money. All of a sudden, their powerful, close and intimate relationship with the ‘godhead’ becomes questionable, with their deity reduced from omnipotent to ‘omnipathetic’.
Ben Fitzgerald, commissioned pastor and ‘missionary’ of Bethel in Redding, California, may have broken the law by creating a Facebook ‘beg-a-thon’ video while driving. This is the same Ben Fitzgerald who has been representing himself as ‘a missionary to the nations, bringing revivals, miracles and supernatural revolutionary movements’ to advance the kingdom of God. Like many of those in the NAR camp, Fitzgerald treats his deity the same way as the false prophets of Baal when competing against Elijah. Despite all their efforts, nothing happens, clearly demonstrating the emptiness of their modern day form of Baal-worship.
“And as midday passed, they raved on until the time of the offering of the oblation, but there was no voice.There was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention” 1 Kings 18:29
In the attached video below, at the six minutes mark Fitzgerald reads a Facebook live comment stating it’s ‘illegal’ to drive and be on Facebook live. Whether that’s true or not, given the distraction live-streaming can cause the driver in a moving vehicle, Fitzgerald continued to talk for another two minutes. While it’s true they think themselves above all accountability to God’s Word, it often manifests with their breaking natural or legal laws.
In this live-stream you will soon note that Fitzgerald’s desperation becomes evident as he makes his deity look as though it is incapable of paying for the venue, let alone turning up to bring ‘revival’ or ‘awakening’ to all of Australia.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.” Matthew 7:21-23
