WHO IS WAYNE CURTIS BENT?
aka Michael Travesser
Updated June 5, 2019
There was a little city [Strong City] with few men in it [77 inhabitants]; and a great king came against it [New Mexico et al.] and besieged it [with its armed forces and lawlessness], building great siegeworks against it [in its courts]. But there was found in it a poor wise man [Michael], and he by his wisdom delivered the city [so that no one was harmed]. Yet no one remembered that poor man. But I say that wisdom is better than might, though the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heeded. The words of the wise heard in quiet are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools. Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner [one who lies and perverts justice] destroys much good. Eccl. 9:14-18
In May of 2019, Wayne Curtis Bent turned 78 years old. He was born in Riverside, California in 1941. He married in 1962 and had three children over the next seven years. When he was 25 years old, while fasting and in prayer, he heard the voice of God command him three separate times, over three days, to leave his Sunday-keeping church, which he agreed to do, and then the final time he heard God command him also to keep the seventh-day Sabbath. (Ex. 20:8) Obeying the command, Wayne Bent earned his master’s degree in religion, and successfully served in pastoral ministry for 12 years in a Sabbath-keeping denomination before taking up the work of spiritual training in his LifeSupports seminars. In 1987, Mr. Bent co-founded the Lord Our Righteousness Church. (Jer. 23:6; 33:16)
The Lord Our Righteousness congregation of 77 people came to New Mexico in the year 2000, so that God could work for them in the wilderness in a greater way than could be done in a congested urban or suburban atmosphere. The wilderness was intended for a place of meditation and prayer and to walk with God having less distraction. (Rev. 12:2, 6) It was here in the year 2000 where God anointed Mr. Bent to declare the Marriage of the Lamb, the end of the age, and the day of God’s judgement. As the prophecy foretold, it was also the time of the birthing of the Child. This “birthing” was the appearing of the anointed Child (Messiah) in God’s people. This holy Child was the coming of Christ to us. The Child was to ascend into the heavens, taking his people’s hearts and minds there with him before the great annihilation of Daniel 9:27.
But soon after arriving, the media and some state agencies came against the community of Strong City for being a “cult” and allegedly planning suicide. National Geographic finally launched their dark tale with suspicion and innuendo, falsely claiming that Mr. Bent predicted the end of the world for the end of 2007. (Rev. 12:15; Jn. 8:44) Their mockery only set them against the understanding of the end of the age and locked them into disbelief of what these things meant. The spirit they received to attack Mr. Bent now divides their own world. The Republicans and Democrats, as the Pharisees and Sadducees before them, agree on almost nothing, except for their offense for the one anointed by God. This “fake news” coming from this spirit on all sides was a precursor to the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD as it is now a precursor to the destruction of the world. History is repeating itself while men look for the wrong messiah. Their false “messiah” did not save Jerusalem and neither will he save the world now. They look for a great prince in the sky, or on the temple, even though Jesus plainly declared that you do not see the kingdom out there somewhere but only “within.” Luke 17:21
The strong contempt by National Geographic and others, paved the way for the general media pogrom heavily laced with “fake news.” Then came the crying out of the mob, urged on by a myriad of evil angels, with other offended haters, which followed the reports, leading to the seven-year incarceration of Mr. Bent. This seven-year specific time period in prison was foretold in the prophecy of Daniel 9:27, where it is written: “he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (show one’s self victor, to prevail, to prove [his testimony faithful] for seven years).”
Mr. Bent placed his hand once on the sternum of a 16-year-old girl while praying for her healing, the cleansing of her soul temple. This one-time touch on the sternum was wrongly declared by New Mexico to be “felony criminal sexual contact of a minor.” The host of evil angels howled out their worst accusations, motivations and evil intentions that they could conjure up. But this 16-year-old girl denied that Mr. Bent ever touched her sexually or ever had any contact with her in that way, though this fact made no difference to his attackers. They did not know, however, that their “crucifixion” of his testimony and Spirit was the world’s declaration that the Holy Spirit of God (Messiah) was not welcome. Yes, the Holy Spirit (Messiah) was rejected. The testimony of Mr. Bent in court was only mocked and despised.
As with Yeshua (Jesus), what the Holy Spirit did in him was considered a crime worthy of extreme punishment to “make an example” of him so that others would not take that road and believe his testimony. All of the dark forces united to try and destroy in Wayne Bent the testimony of Jesus and the instructions of God in a slurry of slime and bog. This is well stated in Revelation 12:17: “And the dragon (Satan), was angry with the woman (church in the wilderness), and went to make war with those who were left of her, which keep the instructions of God and have the testimony that Jesus had.” “Christ in you,” which is the gospel of Christ, is greatly hated by those who love the kingdom of themselves.
Yeshua proclaimed to the Sanhedrin that he was the Son of God and Messiah, which greatly offended their self-righteousness. He worked wonders that the Jews were unaccustomed to and unable to perform. When he cleansed the temple, that also offended them, for he exposed their merchandizing of the people and the temple. It was the same with Wayne Bent. He stated that God had named him “Messiah” and many wonders followed him also. He placed his hand on the sternum of the human temple to cleanse it, and the mob, the state and the media declared that to be a sex crime worthy of the harshest punishment. Mr. Bent was accused of the worst things hell could come up with, presenting everything in the most exaggerated and distorted light just as they did with Jesus. This cleansing of the temple, first at the beginning of his ministry of seven years involving two witnesses, and then at the end of those seven years involving two witnesses, was an offense as it was when Jesus cleansed the temple made with hands at the beginning and ending of his work. Mr. Bent confirmed the covenant for seven years in the heart of the earth (one week) as Jesus did in the heart of the earth for three days.
The seven years in prison were also revealed in the Dead Sea Scriptures for the “Final Prophet.”
My prison is counted with the Abyss, the torrents of Belial have encompassed my soul leaving me without deliverance… Truly, I am bound with untearable ropes and with unbreakable chains… a thick wall fences me in, iron bars and gates of bronze; my prison is counted with the abyss as being without any escape… Thou hast dealt wondrously with the poor one to manifest Thy might within me… Thou hast placed him in the melting pot like gold in the fire… to be purified seven times (seven years).
The Dead Sea Scriptures also prophesied the cancer of the Final Prophet that he would have in prison. This cancer became critical because the prison hospital refused to treat it, stating repeatedly that it was not cancer.
The members of my Covenant have rebelled and… with devilish schemings they unsheathe a perfidious tongue from which springs the poison of dragons… and this has brought a malignant scourge (cancer) within the body of Thy servant… My sore breaks out in bitter pains and in incurable sickness impossible to stay… My wound breaks out like burning fire… whose flames devour me for days on end… diminishing my strength for times on end and destroying my flesh for seasons on end.
The Dead Sea Scriptures also speak of the trial of the final teacher of righteousness.
There is no rest for me in my trial… they sound my censure… their murmuring and storming according to the mysteries of sin, they change the works of God by their transgression… For they, an assembly of deceit (the court) and a horde of Belial, know not that my stand is maintained by Thee… From Thee it is that they assail my life, that Thou may be glorified by the judgment of the wicked… They have banished me from my land (Strong City) like a bird from its nest.
But what do the Scriptures say? “When he (the Messiah) shall come to be glorified IN his saints, and to be admired (‘to be amazed at — wondered at’) IN ALL them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed in that day).” 2 Thess. 1:10 But the professed “Christians” did not believe, just as the Jews did not believe Yeshua. The atheists did not believe, right along with them. These people never agreed on anything but they could all agree on refusing the testimony of the Holy Spirit (Messiah). Mr. Bent was a “scandalon” to them. He was mocked and constantly ridiculed for what the Holy Spirit carried out in him. They could not destroy the Holy Spirit so they destroyed one who possessed Him. They broke the body but they could not break the Child. They could not abort the Life. They only mocked “Messiah” in the media and in the courts, as well as in the public discourse, so the Spirit departed from them. When they condemned Mr. Bent, all of the decency, reasonableness, cooperation and love of God left them. The Scriptures state: “Neither repented they of their murders [of the minor children], nor of their [“legal”] sorceries, nor of their fornication [imagining sex crimes], nor of their theft [stealing their freedom to practice their faith].” Rev. 9:21
Wayne Bent commented on the following Scripture:
Immediately after (along with) the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matt. 24:30, 31
(Comment): To put this in simple language lacking prophetic symbols I will restate this:
At the same time of the tribulation of the nations, everything will seem out of its natural course, everything backwards. Then the warning sign of God, which is a man anointed by God with a peculiar message, will appear publicly and his testimony will be plainly stated. Then everyone will wail and mourn because of what he does and says, for he has with great power presented a message extraordinarily opposed to what previously seemed normal. But the angels will use this appearing to gather the honest in heart from all places that have accepted his testimony.
I believe that God made me to be the “SIGN” of the Son of man. That is, I was a warning blast of the trumpet that when you see this event know that the end is near. The “elect” recognized the sign and that gathered them. Jesus was not crucified for a crime. He was crucified for a public offense. I was “crucified” over a public offense but no crime was committed. The law was never broken. So God used me to expose the people who would have crucified Jesus. Everyone who came against me, accusing me and insisting on my imprisonment are the very people who would have shouted “Crucify him” when Pilate (the civil judge) was deciding what to do. So I am the sign from God that exposed His actual enemies. I am the sign that exposed those who thought “I would have never crucified Jesus, I would have believed in him.” Yet, by coming against me, they came against Him. God gave the people a second chance, having all the answers to the final examination for this age right in their Bible, to prove what kind of people they actually were and what they would have actually done at the time that Jesus was crucified.

Jesus was accused of blasphemy even though he had not blasphemed. Wayne Bent was accused of sexual contact even though there had not been any sexual contact. As with Jesus, they had no regard for the testimony and they despised the “Child,” so their national house is now in collapse, their familiar, old world ending as all things come to confusion.
There were two witnesses at the beginning of Wayne Bent’s anointing and two witnesses at the end of the seven years of the fulfillment of the testimony. When the state of New Mexico offended the two minors who were witnesses, naming their innocent, nonsexual request a sex crime, and betraying the son of man, they declared that it would have been better had they not been born. “It must needs be that offenses come; but woe to that man by whom the offense comes.” Matt. 18:7 Woe to the nation by whom the offenses come, for when a nation joins forces with the spiritual dark side there is no end to the howling mob and the woes that follow them. We can clearly see this now in the present and total national chaos.
Mr. Bent was released from prison on February 11, 2016, after serving seven years in prison for this healing procedure. (Dan. 9:27) He now spends all of his time in his wilderness home, except for periodic, required parole visits. He is restricted from being in the presence of any minor children, including his own grandchildren. He is continually monitored for his location. He now has no social contact with the public except for family and close friends. (Rev. 13:17) He cannot trust the general public for anything now except superstition, suspicion and offense. Neither does he trust the legal system for they do not now follow the law but only their own self-interests, political expediency and their obvious illegal social agenda as they did in his own case. The nation has developed a sickness that is incurable.
Wayne Curtis Bent aka Michael Travesser, now sees the purpose of his work as completed. That for which he was born is finished. He has confirmed the covenant for seven full years. During that time the society at large confirmed their rejection of the covenant. This was seen in the appeals process over his wrongful conviction and illegal trial. Since that time the evidence builds that the national collapse is underway.
In the day of Yeshua, when his work was completed, he declared, “It is finished.” (John 19:30) In this age, it is sounded loudly by the heavenly Voice, “It is done.” (Rev. 16:17) For the world, the decree of Messiah remains the same as it was at His first appearing, after the people had been warned and the warning rejected, “Your house is left unto you desolate (unmarried to God and no Christ-child within your soul).” (Matt. 23:38) In other words, you are dead and your house is left unto you empty just as you want it, because you love the voice of the dark side against the Word of God.
Mr. Bent sees that this is all now self-evident. The very events carried out by the state of New Mexico, when his church and family were wrongfully destroyed by them (Dan. 9:26), (exposing the myth of constitutional protections) are now being carried out against themselves, by themselves. (Dan. 9:27) What they falsely accused Wayne Bent of doing, they now accuse each other of doing. All souls are now sealed (gridlocked) into their own position for good or evil. This era marks the end of the world as we have known it. Nothing will ever be “normal” again. Evil angels now have free reign over those who hate the testimony of Christ (Messiah), driving them all insane and they do not even know it. But this was all predicted for “In that day.” The wrongful conviction of Wayne Bent exposed the world for what it actually is, rather than what it pretends to be. All things that have been hidden are now exposed. (Luke 12:2)
This generation has cursed itself. Slowly but surely the dark clouds have appeared, first on the horizon but now right over the nation’s skies. This darkness has settled down on the very seat of the beast. The curse deepens daily and the blood moons of this era stand as ominous, silent witnesses portending things to come. God’s people now ascend, not hardening their hearts against the words of the Father, “Come up here, your Father calls you home.” Every day God’s people ascend higher while the world they came from sinks more deeply into the dark abyss.
You are weighed in the balances [of justice] and found deficient. Your kingdom is divided. Dan. 5:27, 28
Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Rev. 18:2
Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath (zeal), because he knows that he has but a short time. Rev. 12:12
And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. Rev. 14:19
The restraint which has been upon the wicked is removed, and Satan has entire control of the finally impenitent. God's long-suffering has ended. The world has rejected His mercy, despised His love, and trampled upon His law. The wicked have passed the boundary of their probation; the Spirit of God, persistently resisted, has been at last withdrawn. Unsheltered by divine grace, they have no protection from the wicked one. Satan will then plunge the inhabitants of the earth into one great, final trouble. As the angels of God cease to hold in check the fierce winds of human passion, all the elements of strife will be let loose. The whole world will be involved in ruin more terrible than that which came upon Jerusalem of old. Ellen White GC p. 614
This “ruin” is now visible in some nations destroyed by war. In the spiritual realm, the ruin is surely more terrible than in Old Jerusalem. In the moral realm this is also clearly observable. Daily, the ruin deepens as the wrath of God is observed everywhere. First, in the spirit, secondly in the natural world. The next time Christ comes, it will be in flames and the entire earth will burn in those flames. When will this happen? Behold, it is even at the door.
