How Bent initiated his Sexual Ministry
From time to time when those familiar with the Wayne Bent case have talked about how Bent started his strange sexual ministry they tell that it began after he started getting unduly facinated with the book in the old testament called Song of Solomon. If you recall Bent is the New Mexico cult leader now serving time in a New Mexico prison for improper touching of underage females. His sexual ministry (read some of my previous posts and visit the link to beyond90seconds.com to get more on this story), which was primarily with legal aged girls and middle aged married women, got a bit out of hand and he got caught when he had some underaged girls (in their teens), who obvously shouldn’t have been there, naked in his bed.
To get the full story, after all the things that hav been said about Wayne and the Song of Solomon, it might be enlightening to actually read Wayne Bent’s Song of Solomon papers. What follows is first a discussion Wayne Bent wrote telling about when he was in Arizona in the process of buying and setting up his New Mexico estate. It is a strange mix of biblical references, astrology and his own interpretations. After you read this, then click the link at the end to read Bent’s Song of Solomon commentary (with an epilogue by Jody Thompson, his first sexual concubine). This commentary is what some say Bent (and Jody) used to initiate Wayne’s other potential sex partners.

It was at this time a major shift began within myself. It was an experience of life I had never had before. It was completely new, and, yet, seemed as though it was something with which I was completely familiar. God was forcefully impressing me to read the Biblical Song of Solomon. I was familiar with the imagery and experience of what the participants in the Song might be feeling, but the new event was that I was pressed into it in a way I was heretofore able to avoid. Previously, I could read the Song of Solomon and forget it; now I had to read it and experience it. It was my Father and Him only coming down upon me, since I could not grasp the significance of it all in my own thinking without Him. Each day I read it carefully, and was made to understand some of the most intricate nuances there presented. This study was very difficult for me to undertake, since it involved images that revolved around human lovemaking. I struggled to keep the images heavenly and my discomfort with this book of Scripture increased. It was strongly impressed upon me that I must enter into the full expression of the Song of Solomon, but I was not to take it to the flesh. At the time presented, it seemed almost impossible to do this. How could one kiss a woman on the mouth, as stated in the Song, and it not be flesh? In my mind, lips were flesh. Laying one’s head on the breast of another, as was portrayed in the Song, was flesh. I did not understand how this could be done, so I felt it meant that I was to go to the limit of the experience without an intimate physical relationship with someone.
At this time, an interesting portent had come to the heavens. Venus and the Sun occupied the exact same location in the horns of Taurus the bull. The Hebrew word for Taurus is Shuah which means return. The Bull represents the return of Messiah in judgment. In the Scriptures, horns represent power. Looking back, it was the precise moment the Lord was setting up the two horns, olive trees, or witnesses and it gave evidence that they would be loved in a special way when viewed from the connection with the Song of Solomon and the signs in the heavens. Shortly after they entered the bull, Venus and the Sun went into the club of Orion. The club of Orion indicated that it was by heaven’s decree. Venus, which is human love, was indicative of the kind of love found in the Song of Solomon. Venus represents the Shulamite’s love as portrayed in the Song. These portents pointed forward to soon coming events for us where two witnesses would be set up to bring to pass the events connected with the coming of the Messiah and the marriage of the Lamb. “Taking them up in My arms…I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love, and I was to them as one who lifts up and eases the yoke over their cheeks, and I bent down to them and gently laid food before them.” Hosea 11:3-4. Amplified.
The two olive trees are mentioned in Revelation 11 with regards to the 1260 day period. The two olive trees stand before the God of the whole earth. These two witnesses stand before Messiah. “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God (Messiah) of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.”
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2.
I began writing a commentary on the Song of Solomon to be made available on our Internet web site. I saw that it was necessary to bring the people of God into the depth of relationship which He required them to have. God was requiring much more than a platonic or God-servant relationship. God was requiring the relationship of a lover. He was to be married to His people in a very literal way. If souls love anything but their heavenly Lover they will be committing adultery. This was a new day. While in Arizona, Father told me that I would marry the land. The city in the wilderness would be my wife.

Following is the link to Wayne Bent’s Song of Solomon Commentary, written in July of 2000, prior to Wayne becoming “The Son of God” (and prior to his having sex with the two married women). This “Commentary” has a epilogue written by Jody Thompson (known then as Gratitude), who several months after writing this became the first of Wayne’s two concubines and was the author of “The Finished Work” (using the name Anaiah), which was a discussion about her sexual liaison with Wayne Bent and that of the second married woman (Debbie Keele).
Wayne’s, oft discussed, Song of Solomon “commentary” :
These writings will provide quite a bit of understanding about the beginnings of Wayne Bent’s sexual ministry (which he maintains was all commanded by God). Hopefully, these documents can clear up some of the mystery about how all this got started.
