How many false prophecies and teachings does it take to make one a liar and a false prophet in God’s eyes?   Can you answer this honestly? Can you answer this Biblically? Does it bother you to answer this?

Jesus said  "false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders" (Mark 13:22)

Orlando Christian Center, Dec. 31st, 1989 Benny Hinn's new year celebration

The Lord also says that, Two of his great giants will die in the mid-90's. They've held the torch of revival for the last forty years, these two. One of them has been to this church, and the other has not. One will die suddenly while asleep. And the other will die of sickness. And as both giants die, which will be in the mid-90's, I will shake this world with a last revival. Their death will be the closing pages of this move.

Did this happen?

“There will be many raised from the dead in that day. Many visitations of angels that will come as young men knocking at your door.

Did this happen?

Benny Hinns has said “The Spirit tells me - Fidel Castro will die - in the 90's. Oooh my! Some will try to kill him and they will not succeed. But there will come a change in his physical health, and he will not stay in power, and Cuba will be visited of God.” “Holy Spirit just said to me, It could be worse than any death you can imagine. There's some question in my spirit on what kind of death the Lord means. I'm not sure. I see him. Uh. I see Cas, I, I see Castro bent over behind bars. I don't know what that means.”

Did this happen?

The Lord also tells me to tell you in the mid 90's, about '94-'95, no later than that, God will destroy the homosexual community of America. [audience applauds] But He will not destroy it - with what many minds have thought Him to be, He will destroy it with fire. And many will turn and be saved, and many will rebel and be destroyed”

Did this happen?

“God tells me to tell you, There's a new disease that will arise on the scene--unknown to mankind. It will kill many. The Spirit of God tells me to tell you that, There is a demon spirit (my goodness). His name is Apollyon. He's written-up in the book of Revelation. His name is the destructor, destroyer. He will come from the south--from South America into America itself--and will plague many for living in rebellion. God tells me to tell you that, The drug problem of America will cause many to die with that plague.”

Did this happen?

“The economy of the United States of America is going to fall. Many businesses will go bankrupt. Many will bought over by foreign companies, even as they are now. But God says, They will be bought by nations that now are considered underdeveloped. God said, Japan will turn away from America, and will join hands with Europe.”

Did this happen?

“The Spirit of God tells me an earthquake will hit the East Coast of America and destroy much in the nineties. Not one place will be safe from earthquakes in the nineties. These who have not known earthquakes will know it.”

Did this happen? [I know someone who did just this spoke with a representative from the National Earthquake Information Center in Colorado. He verified that there were no major, destructive earthquakes on the east coast of America in the 1990's. Call or write the NEIC yourself to verify this].


Hinn said “The Spirit tells me that, Europe, who is already now becoming powerful, will rule the nations and influence the world.”

Hinn’s revelation continued “Oooh. A world dictator is coming on the scene - my! He's a short man. He's a short man! I see a short man! Who's a perfect incarnation of Satan . ... Never in my life have I had anything happen like what's happening to me now. This man will rule the world. The next few years you will see him. But not long after that you will see Me.” (December 31, 1989)

Did this happen?

Castro did not die in the dates given--the homosexual community of America was not burned with fire on the dates given. More than a “few years” have passed and we see not short man ruling the world and we haven't seen God. No new disease from south America, America did not go bankrupt, Europe did not rule the nations etc. etc. This is all from one prophecy and make insult to injury Hinn says at the end ... “I wish somebody would make sure to tell me what I said. Did--Did you tape that, brother? Did you tape that? Ooh! I was totally drunk. I'm still drunk. “Lord, if You spoke through me--if what You said is of You--then as I stretch my fingers towards the people, let Your power fall on everyone of 'em. If what I said, Master, is, is of You, let the power flow now.”

What did I say in that prophecy, guys? How long did I? I prophesied for twenty minutes? I'd like to know what I said. I was totally gone”(Orlando Christian Center, Dec. 31st, 1989 ).

As Hinn states “What a way to start the 90's. What a way to start the 90's.” When one loses their faculties and has no consciousness of what they said it is more like channeling a spirit. The true prophets of God never spoke in this manner.

The rapture is coming

“The Spirit tells me that, ...following the rapture--a woman president will be in the White House, and that woman president will destroy this nation, but My church will, will be gone. ...A world dictator is coming on the scene. ... I see a short man, whose a perfect incarnation of Satan.... This man will rule the world. The next few years you will see him. But not long after that, you will see Me.” (December 31, 1989 at the Orlando Christian Center)

On the November 9, 1990 Praise-a-Thon, Hinn told Crouch his new revelation. “Paul, I can say this -- Are you ready for this? We may have two years before the rapture. . . Can I be blunt with ya? I don't know if we have two years left. . . I'm gonna prove to you from the Word tonight, that we have less than two years.”

Two years makes it 1992, but 5 years after when it was to occur on the July 1997 fund-raiser telethon on TBN Benny Hinn said a newer revelation for those who forgot the other new one, but this is 7 years later “Jesus is coming again within the next two years” (Trinity Broadcasting Network).

Did this happen?

That would have made it 1999 - several years ago. Not to wonder, he will say it again if he has enough time. Hinn repeats everything over and over because he is counting on you not remembering.

Hinn had claimed that God is about to make a major move to anoint the people of God, as soon as Israel signs a treaty with the ailing Hafez Al-Assad of Syria, which will likely be within the next year. This will signal the impending large scale shift of financial wealth from the wicked to those obedient to God (as has been taught to his followers for 10 years). To benefit from this special anointing, you must be obedient to God and sow your financial seed to TBN now!

The death of Assad on June 10th proves Hinn does not know what he was talking about, and yet he uses Gods name as if he does.

More recent failed prophecies

“Yes. The glory of God is going to visit His mighty church. Yes Lord. Three and a half months from now a great event is going to take place in the world, followed by a mighty move of God in the church. Three and a half months from now something is going to happen in this world: headline news, you'll know it. I will not tell you what I see. You'll just know it, and something mighty will follow in the Spirit. God, the Holy Ghost, is saying to His church - Watch Israel. Watch my people Israel. You will know as you read the scriptures and watch Israel. 'For the days are short' says the Lord. 'The days ahead are evil' says the Lord, 'but I have reserved a place for my people, a place of safety, a place of protection.'“ (Benny Hinn, December 29th, 2002)

Did this happen? NO it did not.

On 12/30/02 explaining on “ the 18th of December at 2 am I awakened to a prophecy ringing in my heart. I was hearing myself prophesy. ... Jeremiah the prophet said that when the Spirit of God came upon him, when the word of the Lord came upon him, it was as fire came into his being. And he could not hold the prophesy. When the Word of the Lord is given to you, you'll prophesy even if you're alone in that place. And so I felt as though my mouth was about to burst with this prophesy. But what I heard was frightening. That was on Wednesday. Thursday morning at 2 am in fact. And now I'm hearing the words “Rivers of blood, rivers of blood.” And the Lord revealed to me what's coming in the next few days and weeks with this war with Iraq.

“When all this comes true - and it surely will - then they will know that a prophet has been among them.” (Ezek. 33:33).

So does this make Benny Hinn a true prophet or a false one? There is not third choice.

What did God tell Moses? “When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him” (Deuteronomy 18:21-22).

You don't have to be afraid that you will lose a blessing, or the anointing or anything from leaving Benny Hinn. In fact you have much to gain. Don't be manipulated by fear to do the right thing.

Ezek 13:8 “Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign LORD.”

Ezekiel a true prophet of God writes of those who follow the false prophets, “And they shall bear their iniquity; the punishment of the prophet shall be the same as the punishment of the one who inquired” (Ezekiel 14:10).

So now you have heard you are responsible before God to seek truth, not what you think is true. This should be sufficient for anyone who loves Jesus and God's word to reject anything a false prophet says, no matter what his name or reputation is.
