Benny Hinn The Puppet Master
I always ask myself, while watching Benny Hinn lead thousands of pagans to believe in vain and millions of Christians to shipwreck their faith ... "How much further can he go?" Wasn't it bad enough for him to state that Jesus Christ is going to appear bodily on stage with Benny Hinn in direct opposition to what Jesus Christ said about His next appearance on earth?
Matt. 24:23-27 At that time if anyone says to you, `Look, here is the Christ!' or, `There he is!' do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time. "So if anyone tells you, `There he is, out in the desert,' do not go out; or, `Here he is, in the inner rooms,' do not believe it. For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Well, hold on to your seats for more blasphemy! Laced with the usual myths and false claims of miracles came this new revelation on April 21, 2000 on Hinn's "This Is Your Day" program. You may still be able to view the video of this program at:
It's about five minutes into the video. Although Hinn's site only archives the shows there for a month or so, you can listen to the audio of this tale of puppeteering here:
Follow along with the transcript:
|"You know one of these days we may show you what happened in our church in Orlando when I had the church in Florida. I was preaching, I was actually ministering on a Sunday night to the sick when suddenly the people began screaming as the Lord's face appeared on the balcony. We have it on video. The Lord's face appeared on the balcony and what was so remarkable is right before that the same face appeared in the children's church on a blackboard. And a little child sitting there with crippled legs was healed instantly. The teacher comes running down from the balcony screaming and shouting, the kids are all behind her, telling us how the Lord had appeared up there. And when she came running down that's when the face of the Lord appeared in the main sanctuary. She was screaming, we all began screaming, and for eight weeks the Lord's face sit on that balcony, on the wall. And what was even more remarkable is that night, that Sunday night service when I was having a healing service, as I was speaking the mouth was moving. The mouth ... the Lord's face was on the wall and you could see the mouth moving as I was speaking. And we thought, it was maybe, you know, it had to do with the lights, you know just how we are all human beings, we're like Thomas sometimes who say "Is this for real"? And, and, and the next day, Monday, the lights were all out ... it was still there! Eight weeks later it was still there." (Benny Hinn, This Is Your Day, April 21, 2000)|
Appalled as you may be, you may not realize that Benny Hinn has had prior experience with "manipulation" of Jesus Christ. Read this episode from Benny Hinn's 1987, yet ever-changing, personal testimony:
"Benny Hinn speaks of many other experiences given over the TBN network. For example, he said that the Lord was in front of him and when he moved his arm so did Jesus. When he moved his foot so did Jesus. This continued until they walked together and they merged becoming one. Incredible! This "Christianity" is more at home with New Age Occultic experience than with the Christ of the Bible!" (Benny Hinn, Personal testimony, July 1987 audio # A071987, Orlando Christian Center as cited in "Touch, Topple, Tilt" by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason, P.O. 683, Wahiawa HI 96786)I continue to marvel that Christian leaders do not call Benny Hinn, who has been rebuked countless times by discernment ministries for his false teachings, what he is ... a heretic! He is a false prophet, a false teacher, a false Christ, and a liar all rolled into one, and this has been documented for years. Are we all to continue to act like he is our brother in the Lord?
This type of stuff is blasphemy of the highest order and, frankly, I am really fed up with it. But worse than the apostate condition of Benny Hinn and those who follow him is a lukewarm church that is apparently too scared to warn people away from Hinn. With each new Benny Hinn blasphemy many church leaders today, who are not standing up for the truth, are bringing themselves closer to judgment. Are they so ashamed of the Lord Jesus Christ that they will not even defend His Almighty Name?
