    Hi Alphabet,The word also says, Deuteronomy 18:20-22 (King James Version) 20.But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21.And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? 22.When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.I have heard on other forums that Benny Hinn has made predictions that never came to pass. That is why I would ask, is he a prophet of is he a healer? Anyone can heal even those who do not know Christ. But the word says Joel 2:28 (King James Version) 28.And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:The gifts which include healing are not just for prophets and we know false prophets are amongst us. The ones whose words come to pass are true prophet. So we can see if he is a prophet or just a healer.:angel9: He believes in Jesus and has confessed this with his mouth.
    Faithful,Yes, you are correct in quoting these scriptures. However, I believe it doesn't matter if he is a prophet or "just a healer" he is still anointed of God, therefore we must respect that. We don't have to like it or even agree with it. What we should do is pray for this man to be what GOD wants him to be.When I have questions about someone's presentation of the anointing God has given them I do my best not to be too harsh or judgmental. I pray for them. I know that is easier said than done, but with God's help all things are possible.

    Amen! I agree. I don't think we should judge anyone who is servie, or trying to serve God. These men DARED to take on such a big responsibility, use those Gifts of faith in front of many millions of people, knowing they will be judged by 'viewers' like us. Knowing they will be questioned and maybe not accepted, they still Dared to serve.

    [url="http://biblegateway.com/cgi-bin/bible?language=english&version=KJV&passage=Matthew+7%3A15]Matthew 7:15[/url]Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. [url="http://biblegateway.com/cgi-bin/bible?language=english&version=KJV&passage=Matthew+7%3A16]Matthew 7:16[/url]Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?I'm not going to comment directly on any one person, group, or denomination. However, let me remind you that simply because someone uses the name of Jesus and sounds nice does not make them one of God's anointed. You know one of his by their fruits. Again, this is not to say something about the one named in the title of this thread.You ARE accountable for what you listen to. You ARE accountable for knowing the fruit and knowing whether it is good or not. If someone teaches things that are not in the Bible...well, that speaks for itself.Remember:[url="http://biblegateway.com/cgi-bin/bible?language=english&version=KJV&passage=Matthew+7%3A21-23]Matthew 7:20-23[/url]Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.The point here is that using a name alone doesn't make anyone a man of God.[url="http://biblegateway.com/cgi-bin/bible?language=english&version=KJV&passage=Matthew+7%3A24]Matthew 7:24[/url]Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:One of Satan's many titles is the Prince of Tyre in Ezekiel 28. Tyre comes from the prime for rock just as we have our rock. The Prince of Tyre is a false rock, but he's trying his darnedest to play our Rock.

    You are exactly right. Not everyone who uses the name of Jesus is anointed by God, so I choose to let the Holy Spirit discern for me who is anointed and who isn't. Those who I know are anointed I pray for. Those who I know aren't anointed I pray for. Those I'm not sure about I pray for. No gossip. No condemnation. Just prayer. :pray3: [​IMG]

    How do you figure he is annointed of God there has never been proof he has ever healed anyone. He preaches mens lies if he was anoited he would not be preaching lies. He has been investigated by the FBI for fraud he is not popular among his peirs many think him a false prophet. Im not saying you cant follow him if thats your decision but he has never done anything to be called an anoited of God except maybe declare it himself and that doesnt make it so.

    Hi Alphabet,I too, do not pass judgement on others because God alone knows the heart. And if the Holy Spirit wanted us to know, then like Peter with Sapphira and her husband in Acts, he would reveal it to us and like Peter we would know why. All in Christ are annointed if they are in the Spirit. I believe this is why we should not be bothered with who has what. But rather we should be living in love for each other and God. Who knows how many will find their way through by your loving them?:angel9:

    We are also supposed to use decernment and know a false prophet. You dont have to be judging someone to be aware many may not trust him for a reason. I am just saying dont be blinded by things that may not be as they seem.

    When ever I want to be judgemental of Hinn, or any one else, I think of Christs words "He who is without sin, cast the first stone." I don't like Benny Hinn! I strongly feel if someone has the gift of healing, he should be going to the hospitals and rescue missions, Without TV cameras!

    I agree with you there Garry. If there are of God, to heal people, rescue mission etc...there shouldn't really be any TV cameras out there to begin with.It reminds me of Matthew 6:1-6, however this verse, the most...Matthew 6:2 - Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.ANDMatthew 6:5 - And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.Lovest thou in Christ Jesus (Yahshua) our Lord and Saviour.

    I think he's fake.If he heard the comments that the likes of me or Kriss made on a forum like this, I'm sure he'd said that we were false and unbiblical. But I know we are biblical. I don't know how God could have patience with all these false prophets. But then again, I am not God. He truly is patient and gives people a chance to repent.He's here today and gone tomorrow and the world will still go on..... that's what I say.

    Very enlighting N2This particular teaching of Hinn's jumped out at me"Christians are 'Little Messiah's' and 'little gods' on the earth. Thus [Encouraging the audience]...say I am a God-man… This spirit-man within me is a God-man, say I'm born of heaven a God-man. I'm a God man. I am a sample of Jesus. I'm a super being. Say it! Say it! Who's a super being? I walk in the realm of the supernatural. Say it!...You want to prosper? Money will be falling on you from left, right and centre. God will begin to prosper you; for money always follows righteousness....Say after me, everything I ever want is in me already." - TBN 6 Dec.1990. This is the same lie Satan used in the Garden to Eve eat and you shall be as godsIt is also the lie New Agers chant.

    You are so right Kriss, that is the same lie Satan said in the garden to Eve. I just have to add this verse...to support it. [​IMG]Genesis 3:5 - For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.Lovest thou in Christ Jesus (Yahshua) our Lord and Saviour.

    I believe he is a genuine man of God, I appreciate the fact that in all his meeting and crusades, he always only exhalts the name of Jesus, no one without the spirit of God will do that, His worship is from the heart, and that's one way to draw the presence of God, if he is did all those miracles without prior worship and exhaltation of Jesus Christ, then I will have questions, so far, I believe he fears God. If he sells things for just a couple of dollars and holds crusade and wins souls to Christ around the nations of the world costing $1000s I'll say ".....sell all the bracelets and letter openers etc you can Pastor Benny......"

    Wheres any proof he ever healed anyone he has been caught many times having shcills in the audience I agree with what was said earlier if he was a healer why isnt he at hospitals or helping those that really need it.Does anybody believe this is what Christ would have you do if he gave you the gift of healing??? give me a break. Is there one of you who would not be at Childrens hospital or cancer ward somewhere. Decernment, decernment ,decernment

    You are to base your thoughts on Him by his fruits. I see fruit of a worldwide ministry, i see him constantly traveling from crusade to crusade. I attended one of his crusades after I first got saved and I saw allot of people getting healed. I dont believe he hires people to act like that. I dont think he could have the ministry he does today if he was such a fraud because of his fruit. I believe he is annointed to heal people and if God gives him that calibur of a Gift of the Holy spirit, i think that is some pretty blatent fruit. Thats just my take on him.As far as him not being at hospitals healing people.. people come to him to be healed by God. If he went to hospitals, he would run into allot of people who had no faith they could be healed.. which would be wasting his time.

    Regarding Benny Hinn going to heal in the hospitals, Christ never went into an infirmary in His time, or were there no sick people in His time?, why ask a preacher with the gift of healing today to do that or he is a fake?. Have we forgotten that they only people who got healed in Jesus' time were those who either went to Him in faith beleiving they'll be healed or those who were brought to Him through the deep faith of other eg, the man with the friends who broke the rooftop in one if Jesus' meetings. Hope we are not putting yokes on others even we cannot carry, like the pharisees of old.
