MANUFACTURING A MESMERIZING RELIGION
of the Age Prophecy: ".. then shall that Wicked be
revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall
destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the
working of Satan with all power and signs and lying
wonders, And with all
deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that
perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be
saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong
delusion, that they should believe a
lie." [2 Thess
As you progress through this video, watching incredibly powerful scenes in which Benny Hinn is casting demons into the audience generally and into individuals on stage, I want you to remember this verse. Cutting Edge has long maintained that this strong delusion will be sent upon those people who have given themselves up to the power of demons, either through occult ritual, or through New Age Religion, or through occult religions masquerading as "christian". As you see these people totally demon possessed, shaking uncontrollably, think of this verse.
Benny Hinn is certainly a trendsetter in the New Wave movement. Before we learn about some of his teachings, lets remember the importance of truth. The Bible states, "For truth is fallen in the street..." (Isaiah 59:14b). Probably, no Biblical statement could more accurately describe our present religious world. Truth has become relative, even to people who think of themselves as "christian". Truth has come to mean different things to different people, even within the ranks of what we call Biblical Christianity. We don't mean differences in non-essentials -- gray areas of doctrine -- but almost every key fundamental doctrine is now under siege as preachers scramble God's Holy Word in order to twist them and take them out of context in order to build their own brand of "christianity". One thing to remember - you cannot sanctify false doctrines by the multiple use of Jesus' name or by the presence of miracles, whether pretended or real. Demons have regularly performed miracles through their shamans for the express purpose of deceiving the people. In fact, we see just such an instance of Shamanic power being used to deceive the people in the Book of Acts, in the person of Simon the Sorcerer [Acts 8:9-24].
Benny Hinn might just be the latest in the long line of such public sorcerers, cut out of the same "bolt of cloth" as Simon the Sorcerer.
Biblical confusion is a powerful tool which prepares people to blindly follow religious leaders. The weakness of fundamental Pentecostalism is that they have always been weak on doctrine -- not nearly as weak as the current Charismatic Movement -- but always weaker than Fundamental Baptists. This traditional weakness has now transformed into the insane condition in which people rush like lemmings after the effects of demon possession, claiming they are serving Jesus Christ, and thinking they are being empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Creating A New Religious System
It's impossible to create a new
religious stream without introducing new theological ideas that depart from the
mainstream. There are several elements to the beginning of a new and novel
religious movement;Biblical confusion is the first step. Any new
religious movement must have an extremely strong and personable leader with
enough charisma to titillate the crowds. The people are warned not to question
this "man of God" because of the "anointing" on his life. These religious
charlatans will always give the people an emotional charge to keep them on a
high. He or she promises the people much for their loyalty and support, and they
always teach enough of the old truths to add legitimacy. If this key leader is
drawing upon the powers of Black Magick his followers are in double spiritual
trouble; you will readily see the visual effects of the kind of spiritual
trouble these followers are in as you watch this video!
As the New Religious Group
becomes big and powerful, the very elements of success makes it almost
impossible for people to leave. There is a mesmerizing effect to the "sight
sound, and sensation" which characterizes this strong New Wave religious
movement, and a powerful Black Magick demonic force that binds followers to each
other and to their leaders. As P.T.L. rose in financial glory and television
success, some of the most prominent religious leaders and Christians were
swooned into support. People forsook Old-Fashioned standards of godliness and
separation from the world and poured their life's earnings into that ministry.
When someone pointed out "question marks", that person was almost crucified by
their friends. Many major ministries will never recover from the paralysis of
the P.T.L. syndrome. We don't have P.T.L. anymore, but we do have many similar
kingdoms that continue to conduct made-for-television
The Kingdom of Jesus Christ
never uses titillation to call men and women to His faith. The very foundation
of true Biblical Christianity is conviction of sin, repentance, forgiveness
through Jesus's shed blood, and a call to experience the Holiness of God. The
Good News of the Gospel is simple; we are sinners, but God has given His Son as
our sacrifice. By His blood we are forgiven, made whole, and called to follow in
His footsteps of godly and Holy Spirit filled living. We are no long condenmed
with the world, but called to be His family.
He gives us great joy, but it's not the world's kind of joy. Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth. give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27). Please notice that He said His peace was not the world's kind of peace. It's not the fleshly, carnal, love of pleasure, love of things, love of applause, love of a big time; but a strong, quiet, mannerly godly peace and joy that flows from a right relationship with God. You will experience a love of the Holy Word, joy of winning souls and just plain joy from a clean and pure heart. A person that knows God through Jesus Christ will not need the experiences of a religious junkie.
How you view Benny Hinn's Ministries is your decision to make, but it's important for you to know the facts before you make that decision. Let's examine his teachings. The ultimate basis of such an examination is the Holy Scripture. If a man's doctrines depart from the clear truth of Scripture, that man is a "wolf with sheep's clothing"! All of the following quotes from Benny Hinn's sermons have been transcribed from audio messages by the credible ministries of the Christian Research Institute or Media Spotlight: A Biblical Analysis of Religion and Secular Media.
Remember some very pertinent Scriptures before we begin.
"If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds." [2 John 1:10-11]
We are not to even give a man "the time of day" who teaches and practices doctrines other than what the Apostles teach! A follower is not to give the false prophet a second chance, nor are we to listen to any excuses for his false doctrine, or else the sin of the false prophet is spilled over on to us. The moment a follower realizes that the prophet he has been following is espousing bad doctrine, the onus immediately is on that follower to leave the movement quickly and without delay.
Further, Jesus tells us to avoid attending meetings by false shepherds like Benny Hinn. Since his spirit is the spirit of Antichrist, as this video clearly demonstrates, then Jesus' warning about false Christs and false prophets can be equally applied to his ministry. Listen:
"If anyone says to you then, Behold, here is the Christ! or, There He is!--do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God's chosen ones) ... So if they say to you, Behold, He is in the wilderness (desert)--do not go out there; if they tell you, Behold, He is in the secret places or inner rooms--do not believe it ... Wherever there is a fallen body (a corpse), there the vultures (or eagles) will flock together." [Matt 23:24-28]
When you see these poor deluded people falling down on the stage before Benny Hinn's casting forth of the demonic host, remember Jesus' warning of a "fallen body (a corpse)". When you see some of these people writhing and twitching uncontrollably as the demon goes into their body and prepares to make his home within, think of Jesus' warning: "they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray."
Teachings Of Benny
1. The Subject Of God: "God, the Father is a person. God the Son is a person, God the Holy Ghost is a person. But each one of them is a triune being by himself! If I can shock you and maybe I should, there are nine of them.... God the Father is a person with his own personal spirit, with his own personal soul, and his own personal spirit body. You say, 'I never heard of that." Well, do you think you're in this church to hear things you've heard for the last fifty years? You can't argue with the Word can you? It's all in the Word" (---- Benny Hinn)
How can Benny Hinn make fun of the "things you've heard for the last fifty years"? After all, the Truth of the Bible is eternal, and God Personally urged:
"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls." [Jer 6:16]
Mark this point well: if you ever hear a preacher say that the "old paths" are no longer valid, walk out of that place immediately! If a person will deny the eternity of God's Word, that person will deny other key doctrines as well. This point is one of those issues that should be a "litmus test" for true, genuine Christians.
Benny Hinn has since acknowledged this false teaching and apparently does not teach it any longer. But, how could such a lapse occur in the first place, especially since Hinn said that what he was teaching was "all in the Word"? His followers are not like the noble Bereans who went home daily to check in the Scriptures to see if what the Apostle Paul was telling them squared with Scripture [Acts 17:10-11]
This false teaching about the Trinity says something about Hinn and his ministry that must be admitted and carefully contemplated. No subject is of greater importance to the Christian church than the personhood of God. God is one, represented in the person of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. The beloved disciple John wrote by the Holy Ghost, "There are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost and these three are one." (I John 5:7). The Scripture testifies of the Trinity of God in perfect unity throughout Holy Writ. To speak of God the Father (The Son of God and the Holy Ghost) each having a personal spirit, a personal soul, and a personal body is completely contrary to the Word of God. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Christ, so how could the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit all three have their own personal spirit, spirit body, and soul?
We see right at the beginning that the paranormal or psychic ideas are influencing the doctrines Rev. Hinn teaches.
Benny Hinn's teachings about Jesus Christ are similar to Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copeland, but actually go to another level above Rev. Copeland. Hinn teaches:
"Ladies and gentlemen, the serpent is a symbol of Satan. Jesus Christ knew the only way He would stop Satan is by becoming one in nature with him. 'What did you say? What blasphemy is this?' No, you hear this! He did not take my sin, He became my sin. Sin is the nature of hell. Sin is what made Satan. You remember, he wasn 't Satan till sin was found in him. Lucifer was perfect till Ezekiel says, sin was found in thee. It was sin that made Satan. Jesus said, 'I'll be sin, I'll go to the lowest place. I'll go to the origin of it. I won 't just take part of it:. I'll be the totality of it. When Jesus became sin, sir, he took it from A-Z and said no more. Think about this. He became flesh that flesh might become like Him. He became death so dying man can live. He became sin so sinners can be righteous in Him. He became one with the nature of Satan so all those who had the nature of Satan can partake of the nature of God" [Emphasis added]
What Satanic doctrine is this, that Jesus did not have the inherent power to defeat Satan, but had to resort to "becoming one in nature with him" in order to defeat him? This is another lie straight from the Abyss! This doctrine denies the Omnipotence of Jesus Christ!
The subject of Jesus' power and His Nature is equally important with that of the nature of the Godhead. New Agers are willing to accept that Jesus was one of the great masters. Almost all religions have Jesus sandwiched in between the other godlike illuminates -- Avatars, like Buddha, Mohammed and Krishna. But, the pure Christian faith teaches that Jesus Christ is THE eternal Word of God, Divine in all His Person and could not have taken any nature that would defile His person. Even the Body of the Son of Man was sanctified before He was sent into the World.
"Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world ... ( John 10:36).
Jesus Christ did not become a sinner, but He did take our guilt as a vicarious sacrifice. Without question, He "became sin" by the act of substitution, but not in His personal character. Paul said, "For He (God the Father) bath made Him (God the Son) to be sin for us (in our stead), who knew no sin... " (11 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus did not "become sin from A to Z" as Hinn says. He did die as our substitute just as though He had been the guilty one, but He did not take the nature of Satan in the process. To be a substitute for someone is vastly different than taking their nature. Remember, He wasn't a substitute for Satan, anyway. He was a substitute for you and I because of Satan's rebellious act and deception and our bondage to sin.
The death of Christ was prefigured in the great sacrifices of the Old Testament temple. These great acts were given as a pattern for the coming Messiah and to cleanse the people once each year from their accumulated sins. Jesus Christ fulfilled all of these types at His death. Listen to the complete explanation provided so excellently by the writer to the Hebrews:
"... under the Law almost everything is purified by means of blood, and without the shedding of blood there is neither release from sin and its guilt nor the remission of the due and merited punishment for sins. By such means, therefore, it was necessary for the earthly copies of the heavenly things to be purified, but the actual heavenly things themselves required far better and nobler sacrifices than these.
For Christ (the Messiah) has not entered into a sanctuary made with human hands, only a copy and pattern and type of the true one, but He has entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the [very] presence of God on our behalf. Nor did He enter into the heavenly sanctuary to offer Himself regularly again and again, as the high priest enters the Holy of Holies every year with blood not his own. For then would He often have had to suffer over and over again since the foundation of the world. But as it now is, He has once for all at the consummation and close of the ages appeared to put away and abolish sin by His sacrifice of Himself.
And just as it is appointed for all men once to die, and after that the [certain] judgment, Even so it is that Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and once for all, will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are eagerly, constantly, and patiently waiting for and expecting Him." [Hebrews 9:22-28; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
The whole teaching of Benny Hinn on this subject are deeply flawed and present a perfect foundation for an occult paranormal religious movement. Rev. Hinn's idea of the "little god theology" is quite revealing. Instead of you and I being elevated, the Lord Jesus Christ is actually being demoted. Listen again to Benny Hinn:
"When you say I am saved, what are you saying? You are saying, I am a Christian. What does that word mean? It means, I'm anointed. You know what the word anointed means? It means Christ. When you say I'm a Christian, you are saying I am Mashiyach in Hebrew, I am a little messiah walking on earth, in other words. That's a shocking revelation! We are not, we are not, having, we don't have apart of Him running around in our stomach feeling goose bumps. His spirit and our spirit-man are one, united. There is no separation, it's impossible. The new creation is created after God in righteousness and true holiness. The new man is after God, like God, Godlike, complete in Christ Jesus, the new creation is just like God May I say it like this, you are a little god on earth running around." [Emphasis added]
This teaching is standard New Age, Freemason, and Rosicrucian! All these false occult groups teach that each man has a "little god" within! This specific Charismatic Word of Faith movement has just now been identified as New Age! Truly, all false groups are coming together at this point in world history; the only difference here is that the Hagin/Copeland/Hinn movement is teaching standard occult doctrine under the guise of being Christian. Did you know this is the true definition of "Antichrist"? Listen:
"... as you have heard that the antichrist [he who will oppose Christ in the guise of Christ] is coming ..." [1 John 2:18a; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Thus, this teaching of Hagin/Copeland/Hinn is positively identified as being of Antichrist! There is absolutely no doubt about it.
Very few teachings have caused a greater flurry of emotion, pro and con, than this teaching of men becoming little gods. Hinn appears to give it a twist that the many other proponents have not done. Hagin and Copeland (along with many others) have created a new world view among their followers with this whole idea, breeding an arrogance and egotistical mindset with those adhering to this false teaching. Instead of humility and a contrite spirit (loved and blessed by the Lord), this teaching has given us a whole class of professing believers who cannot be told anything. People have actually said: "I don't care what Paul the Apostle said or did"
The very nature of this teaching is pride, haughtiness and every spirit of the sinful Adamic nature. Hinn teaches that we are "god-like in Spirit, not in our flesh" which appears to be even worse than the former idea. Here is another description of this idea by Hinn:
"They think we're saying we in flesh are God; we're not God in flesh. We are god-like in Spirit! We're complete in Christ in Spirit. Our Spirit man is god-like. It was birthed by God. It's a Spirit being. That's what I'm talking about [background voice says, So, those that would put that teaching down, want us to have a beginning and an end Yes! background voice says, 'That's Satan isn't it?'] Those that put us down are a bunch of morons. Glory to God'! Glory to God!"
This concept is definitely Gnosticism, against which Paul and the Apostles clearly battled in the early church. Note, also, the unchristlike spirit by calling those who disagree with them, "morons". The word, "moron" is defined by my dictionary as: "incredibly stupid". Calling someone a "moron" is exactly what Jesus warned would send you to Hell.
Jesus warned: "... whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire." [Matt 5:22]
The word, "fool" in this passage is Strong's Number 3474, a word whose base is "moros" [Strong's Greek & Hebrew Dictionary], from which we get the word, "moron". Therefore, Benny Hinn has just put himself in danger of Hellfire by this impudent statement! The very fact that he is speaking the words of Satan while claiming to be a Christian and serving Jesus is so typical of too many in the Charismatic Word of Faith Movement. When you see this video, you shall be astounded, time and time again how people could receive all these demons into their body, how they could writhe like pagan people of olden times, and how they could manifest all the signs of demon possession, and yet believe they are serving Jesus Christ! This whole movement is insidiously Antichrist in nature.
We urge you to compare the swaying of the crowds in this Benny Hinn video to the swaying of the crowds in our video, "They Sold Their Souls For Rock and Roll". You will discover the people in the audience are in the hands of the same demonic spirit. Note also that many of the Rock stars shouted at the audience and gestured toward the audience in much the same way as Benny Hinn, for it is by these means that the demons are spread from the "receptacle" to the audience, demonizing the entire crowd. Remember, just by attending one of these meetings, you are giving demons permission to at least afflict you, if not possess you. When Benny Hinn asks the crowd to shout, "Fire" at the count of 3, everyone who shouted had just given demons permission to possess them. This is a very, very serious matter.
Hinn's attempted division of the human personality is dangerous. Man is a unified person and cannot experience something in the spirit without affecting his flesh or soul. If we are "born again", our entire personality is changed. We do not sin in the flesh without defiling our soul and spirit. Neither can we be god-like in spirit without being god-like in the flesh. The truth is we are saved by the action of the Holy Spirit upon our human spirit that puts God in charge of our whole physical life. Paul prayed that we be sanctified body, soul, and spirit and preserved blameless.
"And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." [1 Thess 5:23]
Any doctrine that elevates man to become a fleshly, prideful and arrogant creature does not come from the Word of God. God is calling us to humility and a broken spirit, not a spirit of pride. We are taught repeatedly to not trust in the flesh.
"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise." [Psalms 51:17]
"For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh." [Phil 3:3]
What does the professing Satanist say, in contrast? They glorify in the flesh. Listen to Anton LaVey, writing in his Satanic Bible:
"The seven deadly sins of the Christian Church are: greed, pride, envy, anger, gluttony, lust, and sloth. Satanism advocates indulging in each of these 'sins' as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification." [P. 46]
While we are on the subject of Anton LaVey, how does a Satanist view music in the Christian Church?
"Many churches with some of the largest congregations have the most hand-clapping, sensual music -- also Satanically inspired. After all, the Devil has always had the best tunes." [p. 49] A Baptist church in our community posted this message on their outside board: "We fired the choir and hired a band." Satan was mightily pleased, I am sure.
We encourage you to cling steadfastly to the wonder reservoir of the "Old Paths" music that truly honors Jesus.
The Believer And A "Spirit
Rev. Hinn puts great emphasis on this idea of a spirit-man in the Believer. Here, he indicates that this occurs when we are born-again. If we receive a new Spirit man, then we are not really "born again" at all. It is rather a paranormal transformation. Benny Hinn says:
'When you were born again God gave you this brand new being, this brand new being was created before the foundation of the World. Ephesians one declares that God literally chose us before the foundation of the world and there it talks about our spirit-man... Your spirit, ladies and gentlemen, is God-like; he's God-like in every way... The second this spirit-man comes into our being - pops into our bodies - we're born again. He's spirit; what born of spirit is spirit. Say after me, 'within me is a God-man'. Say it again, 'within me is a God-man'. Now let's say even better than that, let's say, 'I am a God-man'. When you say I am a God-man you're not talking about your flesh or your soul; you're talking about your spirit-man. Now, remember, everything Jesus did, He did so we can receive the opposite! What He gave up, He was saying, 'You are to receive what I gave up!' Now it's like this: I have His name on earth! Isn't that right? What is it to have the name of Jesus? It means to have His office!... Paul the apostle said that Jesus is standing before the throne as the Son of Man. He called Him the 'Man-Christ!' Now, you ready for some real revelation knowledge? Okay, now watch this. He laid aside His divine form, Now these are the seven steps from the glory to the cross. He laid aside His divine form! Why? so one day I would be clothed on with the divine form!"
This teaching appears to be so new as to leave one wondering where it came from. Read carefully, as he is saying that when we are "born again", a spirit-man separate from ourselves -- that God created before the foundation of the world -- "pops into our body." Instead of the Holy Spirit renewing our human spirit and uniting us into the body of Christ, we are said by him to receive this extraterrestrial spirit-man that takes over our inner spirit. The use of the word extraterrestrial is mine, but I think that's exactly what we are dealing with. The possibility of demon-activity is very real when you begin to suggest an extra spirit activity apart from the Holy Ghost. Indeed, a demonic spirit does just "pop into your body".
The activity in the soul of a repenting sinner is the work of the Holy Spirit. To suggest anything else is contrary to the Word. Actually, Hinn appears to be using this "spirit-man" idea to lay a foundation for the "little gods" teaching. If God has created an extra spirit-man that the believer receives, then we are changed into this new being, higher than the being which has just been redeemed from sin.
Hinn suggests that in other remarks by saying:
"When Jesus came, He did not give us back Adam's office. He gave us His office. This is why angels to this day cannot rebuke Satan. Jude says, even Michael will not bring an accusation against the devil Why? Because angels are lower today than Satan who holds the office of Adam. But we, as joint heirs with Christ in heavenly places, are higher than Adam [background voice says. 'and angels"] and angels. So, today, angels cannot rebuke Satan, but we can, because we are on the same level as the Son on earth. We're not God, we're the children of God. We're god-like in our Spirit man, not in our flesh. Thank God, our flesh will die and we are gonna have a new body. The Bible says, when we shall see Him our bodies shall be like Him, but our spirit man is already like Him."
Here, you see Benny Hinn actually misquoting Scripture! The passage Hinn is quoted in 1 John 3:2. Let us review it so you can see that Hinn is deliberately misquoting Scripture to fit his twisted theology. There may be no other sin so grievous than misquoting the Word of God.
"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."
Please note there is no mention whatsoever that we have a "spirit man". In fact, this term is not found anywhere in all of Scripture! Benny Hinn is manufacturing his own scripture, just as any cult leader will do.
It would appear that every Christian would recognize this kind of teaching as aberrant to our faith. Hinn's effort to quote as proof text a Scripture in Ephesians One, fails miserably. Notice this Scripture.
"According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love." (Ephesians 1:4).
There is no basis at all in this Scripture for such a teaching. Such ideas are usually defended as being "words of knowledge" or a "word of prophecy." Paul's words to Timothy are clearly applicable. "For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith." (II Timothy 3:6- 8).
Benny Hinn And The Word Of
Knowledge -- Failing The Biblical Test of A True Prophet -- 100%
The doctrine of the Word of Knowledge is a big idea in the New Wave movement. Here is Rev. Hinn's admissions an the subject:
"Man, I remember when God would give me words of knowledge back when I began in this ministry. I missed nine out ten. Nobody knew it except me. 'Well, Benny Hinn, I thought when the Holy Ghost' - saints, the Holy Ghost is using an imperfect vessel. Are you listening? We're not infallible. Or when you give a prophecy sometimes you can be way off you have to be open enough to say I blew it. "Hooo! He blew it; he's a false prophet!" No, he just blew it Just because you blow it - men of God blow it all the time. Paul blew it; Moses blew it; even Elijah blew it; even Elisha blew it! They all blew it. Maybe not with prophecies, but they blew it in all kinds of things. Like Elijah goes and says, 'Lemme die! I wanna die! I wanna die!' That's a bad blow! Peter decides to withdraw himself from the Gentiles; he blew it bad! We all blow it, and if you don 'you're not human. Don 't forget, the man who does not use the eraser is no good! The man with clean eraser
- untouched- don't touch him. The man who does not know how to say, 'I blew it,' [you] can't trust him. Did you hear that? So - but you see, when the gift begins ... when the gift begins it begins rough, but then as you keep going with it you just get better and better and cleaner and purer with it. So today with the word of knowledge - I'm just being open with I rarely miss anymore. Why? Because I recognize how to operate in it. [Hinn snaps his fingers; Emphasis added].
Nothing in Hinn's teaching is more dangerous than his supposed use of the "gifts of the Holy Ghost" without the absolute commitment to dependability. He says he missed it nine out of ten times while he was "learning how" to use these gifts. Now, he says, "I rarely miss anymore." The Holy Ghost does not play games and He never misses being perfectly right. Hinn is apparently suggesting that the gifts are learned by manipulative men rather then given by the Holy Ghost. This is never taught or even suggested in the Scripture.
Let's imagine that he prophesied to one
hundred people to begin with and now ninety of them are living under a false
prophecy, which they accepted as true. Are they not as important as this man who
says, "Don't judge me, I'm just learning?" Now, he says, "I rarely miss it;" but
how about the people whose lives are wrecked when he does? Are these just
disposable people Hinn takes no regard for as he rises to
God is quite clear and firm on the subject of a prophet foretelling an event. You see, Satan immediately began to raise up false prophets, who would act as Benny Hinn acts, giving prophecies pretending to be from God, but being mostly wrong. Listen to God's Word on this important matter:
"But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die. And if you say in your minds and hearts, How shall we know which words the Lord has not spoken? When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or prove true, that is a word which the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him." [Deuteronomy 18:20-22]
Hinn is fortunate that he is not falsely prophesying in the days of old, for he would have been stoned to death by now! Hinn speaks presumptuously, and before he learned to get really good at his fakery, he was wrong 9 times out of 10! But now you know the Biblical standard by which to judge a "Word of Prophecy" -- 100% accuracy. The "prophet" is allowed no excuses! True prophets who are really speaking under the anointing of the Holy Spirit are never, ever wrong; if they were, we could have no faith in the Holy Bible on any subject, including Salvation and Eternal Security, because the Holy Spirit is behind it all! We absolutely depend upon the 100% faithfulness of the Holy Spirit; we should spot instantly as a fake a man who says he is speaking under the anointing of the Holy Spirit but then admits he is wrong much of the time. Where is your discernment?
Now, let us return to Benny Hinn to hear more of his nonsense on this subject.
Mr. Hinn pronounces a quick judgment on those who question him. Here are his words,
"All of us make mistakes; all of us are bound to error But woe to the man, and woe to the [TV] station, and woe to the group that will expose the nakedness of the man of God to the world. You know, I'll tell you something. I'm not supposed to, but the Holy Ghost is upon me, and I think I need to. The day is coming when those that attack us will drop dead ... I speak this under the anointing of the Spirit. Can I teach you something? Don't touch God's servants - it's deadly. You'd think we should do whatever we want with someone who's failed God? 'Touch not my anointing.' (- Benny Hinn)"
Did you notice that Hinn referred to himself and his ministry as "nakedness"? This is an astounding revelation from Benny Hinn himself that his ministry is spiritually blind, naked, and false. Did you know there is an instance in the Bible where God forced one of the wicked Pharisees -- who were at the point of firmly deciding to have Jesus killed, -- to utter prophetic truth? Listen, for the Holy Spirit Himself gives us the full explanation as to how the High Priest Caiaphas could have uttered such an astonishing prophecy, coming from the lips of the man instrumental in originating the plan to kill Jesus:
"But one of them, Caiaphas, who was the high priest that year, declared, You know nothing at all! Nor do you understand or reason out that it is expedient and better for your own welfare that one man should die on behalf of the people than that the whole nation should perish (be destroyed, ruined). Now he did not say this simply of his own accord [he was not self-moved]; but being the high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was to die for the nation, And not only for the nation but also for the purpose of uniting into one body the children of God who have been scattered far and wide." [John 11:49-52]
The same Holy Spirit that caused High Priest Caiaphas to state that Jesus was to be the sacrifice for the sins of the entire nation, prompted Benny Hinn to admit that his entire ministry was "nakedness"! When the Holy Spirit is speaking this clearly to the victims of this type of ministry, his followers are foolish not to listen.
Also, Hinn is elevating himself above the Word of God. Paul said, "Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the others judge." (I Corinthians 14:29). Every prophecy given by anyone is subject to discerning judgment by the proper leaders in the Body. This protects all of us from the immature and evil imaginations of undisciplined individuals in the church. We could discuss the wild antics that Mr. Hinn calls the work of the Holy Spirit. One single event should suffice. Any activity in the church body should be judged by the precedent of New Testament Scripture.
When men blow on others to give them the Holy Spirit, we should ask, "Is this a Biblical method for receiving the Holy Ghost Baptism?" Every activity of the church should point to Jesus Christ and should be clearly patterned after the Holy Bible.
In fact, as we have stated before, this "blowing" on others to "give them the Holy Spirit" can really be understood only when you understand Black Magick Witchcraft. A shaman becomes more powerful by deliberately inviting demons into his body; a most powerful Shaman literally becomes a "reservoir of demons". He can "blow" these demons into a person(s), as the demons literally pour out of his mouth into the audience; or, he can point his finger and through an exclamation cause the demons to pour out of his body and into the bodies of his victims. This looks to be exactly what Benny Hinn is doing when he blows on people and when he points his finger and shouts "fire". These people to whom Hinn is pointing are becoming demon possessed, as you can clearly see in the video. When Hinn asks the audience to yell "fire" at the count of three, he is casting real demons into each and every person who responded, saying "fire". This is very serious business, indeed, for every person possessed during one of these meetings has given permission to the demonic host to possess them just by their being present and/or by their shouting "fire", or by coming on stage.
The coming of Jesus Christ and the appearing of the Antichrist are both at hand. The very elect are at risk as we witness the confusion in religious circles. Very few men are willing to publicly speak to the evidence of the New Wave movement. There are many trendsetters that appear to be teaching a new way that they call a "paradigm shift." The New World Order Church is coming together daily, and Benny Hinn, Kenneth Hagin, and the entire Trinity Broadcasting Network are contributing mightily to the effort.
In the last part of this video, Paw Creek shows a surprising part of Benny Hinn, i.e., his "Catholic Mysticism". Since the global church referenced above is being led by the Roman Catholic Pope and since the Illuminati chose the Pope to be the False Prophet in 1991 [Read NEWS1052], we should not be surprised to learn of this Catholic connection. However, we are at the limit for this article, and shall treat this subject in the next article.
The mysticism and the practice of Black Magick Witchcraft that Benny Hinn exhibits under the guise of Christianity is exactly the kind of development we should expect as the world draws ever closer to the End of the Age.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.

God bless you.
