I heard once about the ''prophecy'', some girl saying that went to this bethel institute of supernatural stuff and she had to make a prophecy for another person in the form of a song. Sometimes it looks like plain sorcery or new age gibberish with a jesusy vocabulary on top.
Honestly, I'm convinced after reading Fr. Seraphim Rose's "Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future" that it is indeed sorcery - quite a big thing in Pentecostalism/NAR is holding hands and praying/"prophesying", likewise the same happens for occult séances. I'd say the book poses the best proofs of Pentecostal/NAR phenomena being basically pagan/shamanistic practices.
I don't know why, but lots of this stuff has origin in California, there is something in that state that makes it a cult factory, all kinds of weird stuff come from there, The Family International, Jesus Movement and several others, Bethel church looks like part of this californian cult phenomenom, and I wouldn't be surprise if scandals and creepy stuff are discovered in that ''church''.
