Benny Hinn Recants the Prosperity Gospel Again and His Ministry Immediately Asks for Seed Faith Money: Thoughts for the Hopeful, Skeptical, and Gullible

###UPDATE 200 PM EASTERN TIME 09-05-2019. Hinn’s Facebook page, and his website have removed videos offering debt elimination for a seed faith offering. This is significant, because those videos were posted after his recantation. This may be a solid indicator that his recantation of the prosperity gospel message is for real, this time. ###

Benny Hinn has recanted the prosperity gospel, again. Link His webpage is still posting recent videos of Hinn offering debt elimination if you sow seed into his ministry.(Link Link About 21 minutes in. (His guest offering debt elimination for money.) The contradiction is obvious, but thoughts about the contradiction are not the same. I want to offer brief thoughts about this contradiction for the hopeful, gullible, and skeptical.

Those who are hopeful, point out that Benny Hinn may have others operating his online ministry. This means that he’s unaware of videos being posted after his recantation. The hopeful believe Benny Hinn, and put blame on those operating his online ministry.

In February of 2018 Benny Hinn said he was guilty of taking the prosperity gospel too far. Link If he had meant this, then videos wouldn’t have shown up later of his ministry preaching the prosperity gospel. Link (A 2014 article asserting Hinn repented of certain charismatic abuses. Link.)

Some may observe his past false recantation(s), and see the contradictions from his recent recantation, and conclude the new recantation is bogus too. You may label such people as skeptics. Others may see the contradictions, and still believe his current recantation. You may label such a person as hopeful or gullible.

What should the hopeful, skeptical, and gullible think after the recent recantation? Given his past, I think it’s reasonable to be skeptical. All we can do is wait and see. Let’s see where Hinn is at after a month or so.

Also I actually just had to edit this entry before I posted it. Why? Because I had links up to videos on Benny Hinn’s Facebook page that were posted after his recantation. Those videos were offering debt relief if you sent his ministry money. Those videos were just removed, about 1:30 PM Eastern time on 09-05-2019. Maybe there is reason to be hopeful.

 

Your Supernatural School of Ministry Needs to Pay Your Tuition Otherwise They’re Hypocrites

ministrylead1

Thinking about attending a supernatural school of ministry? Let me give you one helpful tip before you give them money for tuition.

They’re a bunch of hypocrites if they won’t pay your tuition. What do I mean? Hear me out.

John 14:12
 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.

Schools of supernatural ministry are built on the premise that we are to be doing greater works than Jesus. That’s right, you’re giving them your money, so they can teach you how to do supernatural stuff, greater than even Jesus did. Shouldn’t they have to prove they can do supernatural stuff, greater than Jesus did, before you fork over your money?

Of course they should. You may be wondering what I am getting at.

Matthew 17:
27 However, so that we do not offend them, go to the sea and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for you and Me.”

Matthew 14

19 Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds,20 and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets. 21 There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.

Jesus put money in the mouth of a fish. He multiplied food. That’s really supernatural. Surely schools that base their existence on doing even greater works than that, should in fact be doing greater works than that.

Why don’t these supernatural ministry schools simply multiply the money they have on hand? Why don’t they speak thousands of dollars into existence into the mouths of fish?

To prove they’re capable of teaching you the stuff they’re going to teach you, they should be multiplying their own money big time, and paying for the tuition of their students. Failure to do this, means they’re hypocrites who don’t even believe the stuff they’re claiming to teach you.

The first act of proving they can do greater works than Jesus, should be multiplying the money they have on hand, so they can cover tuition. Truth be told, they couldn’t even multiply one slice of bread to feed an extra visitor at lunch time.

Please save your money, and don’t give it to these money grubbing hypocrites. The only thing they’re multiplying is their own income.

 

 

Tornado Alley Blew Over As Ken Copeland Fiddled His Money

Copelandlead05302019a.png

Tornado alley blew over as Kenneth Copeland fiddled his money. The Washington Post reports that over the last 12 days there have been 225 tornadoes. Kenneth Copeland might be the one to blame.

Gloria Copeland says Ken can control the weather. He has the computers to keep track of the weather, and he can even make tornadoes go away.  They have an exclusive article about how we need to talk to the weather.

Ken has a fancy jet and access to weather equipment. He also rakes in all of that money, all for the purpose of doing the Lord’s work, of course.

jet1.png

Why isn’t Ken using his vast wealth, his fancy weather equipment, his fancy jet, and his ability to stop tornadoes to go about the Lord’s business of helping people by stopping tornadoes? He claims that’s why God makes people filthy stinking rich.

Of course we know the answer. Ken can’t stop tornadoes, and all of that money is for him, and not for doing the Lord’s work.

Articulately Lead to the Cesspool: Michael Brown’s Refusal to Red Flag Sid Roth Proves Brown Is Dangerous

BrownLead05292019a.png

One major red flag about Michael Brown has to do with who and what he won’t give a red flag. Michael Brown would never tell someone to avoid watching Sid Roth’s It’s SuperNatural because it’s spiritually toxic and dangerous.

Sid Roth is the Johnny Carson of the cuckoo, strange, weird, toxic and dangerous wing of charismania. Once you’re on his show, you gain a lot of credibility in charismania circles.

Any Christian leader who presents as someone who stands for the truth, and as a shepherd of God’s flock, shouldn’t have to think twice about warning the sheep where to avoid. If there is a place that without question one of God’s sheep should avoid, it’s the toxic cesspool of Sid Roth’s It’s SuperNatural. 

The fact that Michael Brown would have hesitation, or might have to nuance and qualify his approach to Sid Roth’s It’s SuperNatural is all the proof you need to show how far in the charismania cesspool Michael Brown wades in.

Most episodes of It’s SuperNatural are infomercials for the guest to pitch their products. The products usually teach the viewer some sort of spiritual trick to achieve breakthrough, healing, miracles, manifestations of God’s presence, wealth, and you get the idea. For a donation viewers are granted access to toxic and dangerous materials that do nothing but exploit them and sink their soul deeper into the cesspool of charismania.

Sid Roth praises throwing a baby against a wall.

David Hogan tells a about a time he saw a witchdoctor transform into a bat.

Jesus plays soprano sax.

Michael Brown even engages in some of the scamming and exploitation.

That’s a small sample of the toxic cesspool. The videos above are not the exception to the rule for what’s on Sid’s show, rather they are the rule.

Roth and Brown have been friends since 1984.

Michael Brown is an articulate speaker for many values Christians affirm. There comes a point where even the most articulate speaker for the cause could end up leading someone in the wrong direction, resulting in them becoming twice as much a child of hell.

Matthew 23:15

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.

His refusal to erect an unqualfied red flag against the likes of Sid Roth, shows how dangerous Michael Brown is. With articulate lips he’ll fill one’s mind with some Christian moral values, but along the way he’ll lead them in the direction of the flames of hell where Sid’s wolves are waiting.

 

Warning People about False Teachers, Prophets, and Healers Didn’t Cease with the Apostles

Waning1.png

Even though many people claim to believe that Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever, and even though the same “many people” claim that all of scripture is for today and we shouldn’t “cut large sections” out of scripture, those same “many people” would rather stick their heads in the sand and act like those verses don’t exist.

Those same people claim you’re just being religious, divisive, and finding fault, if you decide to take those verses seriously. They love taking some scriptures seriously when it allows them to tag the authority of God to every vain imagination and odd manifestation their mind can create. But if you dare discern their vain imaginations and manifestations using other portions of scripture, then all of the sudden you’re a judgmental pharisee with a religious spirit who wants to persecute and divide the body of Christ.

Here are some scriptures that are still for today. Notice how many of them alert us to be aware of people claiming to speak words from God, and claiming to do signs, wonders, miracles, and healing for God. If you’re against taking portions of scripture out of the bible, then you need to take these seriously too.

You should be really suspicious of people who claim to be prophets or miracle workers who seem hostile to being discerned and tested, given the fact that scripture really tells us to be be on the lookout for them.

Matthew 24

23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. 25 Behold, I have told you in advance.26 So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them.

1 Timothy 4

1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, menwho forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.

Jude

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints. For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 11
But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.

13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.

2 Thessalonians 2

Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

1 Timothy 1

As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith. But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion, wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions.

Matthew 7

15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, you will know them by their fruits.

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

2 Timothy 4

I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.

1 John 4

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

 

 

 

 

Torturing God’s Sick Sheep: Stop Making Excuses for Being Sick Says Sid Roth

SID1.png

Sid Roth just tortured God’s sick, disabled, and suffering sheep. Sid claimed he was going to expose why Christians remain unhealed. He told Christians to stop making excuses for being sick and to come to their senses. Roth said the problem is that Christians give up too easy. Roth says Jesus is sitting there waiting for us to get our healing.

Sid says we’re to demand our healing, and if it takes demanding our healing up to 50 times per day until it’s gone, then that’s what we’re to do.

This is abuse and torture of God’s sheep.

“Healing Is Coming”: Another Sheep Oppressing Prosperity Gospel Ministry in Panama City Beach, Florida

beachside1.png

Healing Is Coming” is an outreach of Beachside Fellowship in Panama City Beach, Florida. Ramon and Marsha Duvall are the pastors of Beachside Fellowship. You might see a website HealingIsComing.life associated with them.

Duvall1.png

This outreach and church is just another word of faith, health and wealth, and prosperity gospel church. Their resource page links to some of the worst money-grubbing prosperity gospel ministries.

HealingIsComing1.png

They teach the false teaching that healing and prosperity are dependent on the words you speak. You can be healthy and wealthy if you speak the right words. They believe our words have the same creative power as the words of God. They grossly mishandle and overextend Proverbs 18:21.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

The tongue and what you do with it, determines whether you have life or death in your life. Whether you have blessing or cursing. Whether you have sickness or health. Whether you have poverty or prosperity, it’s all determined by what you do with your tongue. We choose every day the kind of life we live.

Hear the above quote in the video below.

Yes our words can influence the course of our life, but they can’t create things the same way God’s words can.

This teaching was not practiced by the early church. Timothy had a stomach illness, and Paul didn’t tell him to speak a healing into existence. Paul had to visit Galatia because of an illness. If this was a practice of the early church, surely Paul, a man who wrote a significant amount of the new testament, would have taught it. He did have a lot of revelation after all. Paul told Christians to expect weakness and participation in the groaning pains of the fallen creation. This inspired man of God didn’t say it could be spoken away with faith filled words.

1 Timothy 5:23

23 (No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.)

Galatians 4:13

13 You know it was because of a bodily ailment that I preached the gospel to you at first,

Romans 8:22-26

22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

A great way to beat God’s sheep, and cause them to despair is to tell them they’re poor and sick because they aren’t speaking the right words, or aren’t exercising the right level of faith.  As you saw above that wasn’t something taught by Paul.

Paul clearly didn’t have the expectations of these false prosperity teachers.

1 Corinthians 4:11

11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling place;

Please don’t let these doctrines of demons cause you to despair. They’re lies of Satan.
