Benny Hinn - Catholic Mystic -fictitious, fictional, made-up, make-believe.
Benny Hinn Really Is An Oil Salesman
From Benny Hinn’s website shop -
“Olive Tree Planting in the Holy Land
Throughout the Bible, olive trees have always been significant. [endtimes comment?!!!]
Now you can help take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations by sponsoring the cultivation of a designated olive tree in Israel in the Benny Hinn Ministries Olive Tree Grove. As a charter member of the Benny Hinn Ministries Holy Land Olive Tree Trustee Board, you will receive a bottle of olive oil produced in Israel, a planting location map and certificate, a certificate of enrollment, and a welcome booklet. Become a charter member today with your gift to the ministry.
Another for profit website here charges US$182 dollars less, that is only US$18 dollars – to plant an olive tree. They also provide a certificate. Ok, so you don’t get a bottle of “Israeli” olive oil with Benny Hinn’s picture on it [as per the picture below] but how much is a bottle of snake oil with a sticky printed label on it really worth? That is some markup! And what’s with the cheesy picture of Benny Hinn on the bottle anyway?
Benny Hinn - Catholic Mystic
Here you can see the proofs of that Benny Hinn is an Catholic mystic, visiting Livets Ord, Ulf Ekman circus show concept in Uppsala Sweden, promoting his books and hosting the same erroneous teachings, where in fact Ulf Ekman a host of Vatican messengers and ecumenical/charismatic chaos, demon teachings, misleading many into a false concept of “unity”, brooding the way to the Mother Church of all harlots!
Brooding - dark, gloomy, dim, overcast, dull, dismal, murky, miserable, boding evil, ill-omened, fateful, ill-fated, doomed, fated, destined, damned, predestined condemned, disaster-prone, ruined, lost, hopeless, etc.
As for Ulf Ekman a host of Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copland, Oral Roberts and many other mystic teachers self proclaimed prophets, teaching demon doctrines.
This is the Catholic/charismatic-mysticism sweeping over the churches uprooting the true Faith and twisting, falsification the scripture!

Benny Hinn - Catholic Mystic
by Joseph Chambers, Paw Creek Ministries, 2000
The world of Benny Hinn is a strange, confusing world. He fits perfectly into the category of a Charismatic Catholic priest, dispensing theological bondage and mystical superstition. The ministry of "Personal Freedom Outreach" describes a recent Benny Hinn three (3) hour video which presented him "as a 'twentieth century' 'Holy of Holies', a 'point of contact' for the power and anointing of God, much as Roman Catholic priests were presented during medieval times." (The Confusing World of Benny Hinn, Fisher and Goedelman, p. 79.)
They also suggested that he is becoming a kind of "Charismatic Pope."
There' are a host of problems in the Benny Hinn world, but nothing is more dangerous than his Catholic style and theology. Katrhyn Kuhlman was clearly the first public Charismatic to merge Catholic ideas and support with her Charismatic operation. Benny Hinn considers himself a benefactor and model of the Kuhlman mystic. Oral Roberts said on the three hour Hinn video, "I saw Kathryn Kuhlman as unparalleled, implying that Hinn is greater than Kuhlman." Roberts then spoke of himself as having God's power ... in his right hand, but said . of Hinn, his anointing "fills the building . . . a greater level has come."
Benny Hinn And Catholic Confusion
There is not an organization on the face of this earth that is more thoroughly demonic than Catholicism. It is riddled with heathen teachings and doctrines of devils.
Yet, Hinn proudly stated, "My upbringing, of course, was Catholic in that I attended the Catholic school in Jaffa, Israel. And so my mentality basically is a Catholic mentality. When I was born again, I was Catholic in my ways. I was very Catholic in my ideas, in my behavior." (Christianity Today, Sept. 3, 1991.)
Indeed, the mysticism that accompanies his ministry, and according to his words, has done so since the first time he spoke publicly, is in the very style of a medieval mystic.
Benny Hinn personally told two reporters from the Toronto Globe And Mail in an article dated December 25, 1976, about his first speaking engagement. This supposedly occurred on December 7, 1974, at the Trinity Pentecostal Church in Oshawa.
His words were, "I held up my hands to pray and the100 people present fell on the floor. That's when I became aware of my tremendous power."
These kinds of phenomenon happen frequently in mystical religions, occultic ceremonies and with religious gurus, but are absolutely absent in Holy Scripture. The only time in the Bible that a person fen on the floor was when God Himself was manifested or an angel appeared to that individual.
To even consider a person having power to knock people on the floor flies in the face of reason and Biblical order. Why would God give a man or woman power to slay people? If He is going to manifest such a demonstration of His presence in His prophets or prophetesses, He is going to do something of meaning, not nonsense. It would disturb my soul for God to use me to slay people by the thousands and then heal them by the handfuls. If it is really God; and He cares about mankind; why would He not heal thousands and slay the handfuls. The God of Holy Scripture does not do foolish and meaningless things. That is Satan's style, not the Heavenly Father's.
Benny Hinn And The Catholic Mass
The Mass as celebrated in Catholic churches is a blasphemous event. Nothing moved the reformers to resist the Pope and the doctrines of Catholicism more than this false teaching. The Mass proposes the constant death of Jesus Christ over and over, plus it is a fetish practice that reduces a Believer to a God-eating cannibal. The whole idea is subhuman and represents a religious descent in to gory superstition. No wonder the doctrines of Mary were necessary to aid the constant dying Redeemer as His co-redemptrix. If the body and blood of Jesus must be offered by Him as a constant death, then His resurrection is reduced to a helpless idea and the ascended Mary becomes the bridge to their unsure future. Even purgatory is needed because of the weakened Messiah who is still being baptized in His daily death. It is a confusing and unbiblical picture.
Apparently, Benny Hinn loves this confusion.
Let me quote an experience that he recently told on the Paul Crouch (TBN) television show.
"On national television, Hinn recently shared an experience which should raise a red flag in the minds of all thinking Christians. In the course of describing a Catholic communion service in Amarillo in which he took part, he stated that he suddenly felt numb, then felt someone step in front of him. The sensation become so real that he then reached out and touched a robe which had "a silky feeling, a beautiful softness to the robe. ... The next thing I was feeling was actually the form of a body, the shape of a body. And my body ... went totally numb.... And God really gave me a revelation that night, that when we partake communion, it's not just communion, Paul [Crouch]. We are partaking Christ Jesus himself. He did not say, "Take, eat, this represents my body." He said, "This is my body, broken for you..." When you partake communion, you're partaking Christ, and that heals your body. When you partake Jesus how can you stay weak?...sick? ... And so tonight, as we partake communion, we're not partaking bread. We're partaking what He said we would be partaking of: "This is my body."' " (The Confusing World Of Benny Hinn, G. Richard Fisher and M. Kurt Goedelman, pp. 132-133, quoting Praise The Lord Show, Trinity Broadcasting network, December 27, 1994.)
Benny Hinn is clearly a Catholic mystic invading Charismatic and Evangelical churches with doctrines of demons.
The work of the cross is a finished work. The true faith of Bible believers does not and cannot survive mystical religious experiences. "The just shall live by faith." (Galatians 3:11, KJV.) Apostle Paul wrote to the Galatians of this danger. He called it being "bewitched", deceived by the spirit of witchcraft, when we try to aid our faith with fleshly ceremonies and ritualism.
"O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, be ore whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Have ye suffered so many things in vain? If it be yet in vain." (Galatians 3:1-4, KJV).
Benny Hinn Is A Catholic Mystic
The simple faith of our Lord Jesus Christ is being severely tested in these closing hours. People have itching ears and want to hear soothing messages. There is an incredible desire for esoteric experiences and religious giants. Most religious people are not satisfied with a simple Bible-centered church where they learn truth and feed on the Word of God. They have not been taught that the Word of God can carry your spirit right into the fellowship of the great and true God. No one is more to blame for this state of religion than the ministers. The true church cannot survive without a genuine move of the HolySpirit. The Holy Spirit is God's restrainer and protector of our minds and souls. The church needs revival. In this atmosphere, a mystic like Hinn can supply a false religious high and appeal to that longing in man for a God that can be known. Hinn talks over and over of this revelation he is getting from his god. While his theology is even changing, his talk of these revelations is constant. Most people do not even hear the implication of the doctrines as long as they are feeling goose bumps and shedding tears. People are so hungry to experience God that reducing Him to a shallow emotion is to them better than nothing.
It is the same bondage that enslaved millions of Catholics, Hindus, Moonies, etc. It is a false emotion created by clever mystics, voodoo witchdoctors and multiple gurus with the aide of the master of deceit.
The mysticism of Benny Hinn can only be described as demonic. His ability to lash out at his enemies and to those that expose his deception one minute, and then to receive a revelation from God the next is confusing to say the least. He has confessed to his false doctrines and promised to clean up his theology time after time, but continues in the same vein. His followers treat these lapses in the same way the ancient Babylonians treated their cruel gods that had to be appeased by their constant sacrifices and adoration. His power over the crowds who attend his church, the large crusades, and who watch by television, is scary. It gives some idea of the control the Antichrist will have over the masses.
It appears that his mystical craziness blended with his god-like announcement has elevated him to a level of a mini-god. He cannot be described by any term more fitting than as a religious mystic. He aptly blends his Jerusalem heritage, his Catholic background and mindset, and his Charismatic personality with his prosperity doctrines to present himself as an intriguing, successful showman. He is clearly captivating.
Benny Hinn's Pronouncements: Does He Knowingly Lie?
A recent article in The Inkhorn, published by Rev. Larry Thomas, stated,
"... the televangelist-faith healer has a well-documented reputation for fabrications, embellishments, truth-twisting, exaggerations and misstatements. Following up his stories usually leads to a series of hyped-up claims that cannot stand the light of truth. Hinn has misrepresented everything from his three conversion stories to his father's political career, his boyhood stutter and a plane crash in which he said he escaped without even a scratch." (The Inkhom, August 1995, p. 13.)
Mr. Hinn apparently has a serious problem with credibility. His recent book, Welcome Holy Spirit, tells a story of his being invited to a Catholic hospital while preaching a revival in Ontario, Canada. He was invited for this crusade by Pastor Ted Spring at the Elim Pentecostal Tabernacle. Hinn stated in his book,
"I received a special invitation from the Reverend Mother of a Catholic Hospital in the area. She wanted me to conduct a service for the patients - along with three other Pentecostal preachers and seven Catholic priests. The chapel of the large hospital seated about 150." (Welcome Holy Spirit, Benny Hinn, p. 23 1.)
Benny Hinn then tells an intriguing story of this event. He said that the chapel was filled with chronically ill, bed and wheelchair patients, and doctors and nurses watching. He said he took control and with anointing oil he and the ministers and Catholic priests began anointing and praying for the sick. He said one priest kept knocking down (meaning the Holy Spirit) as he anointed them. He stated that the hospital looked like an earthquake had hit and that people were under the power of the Spirit. (Ibid, p. 234) He quoted the Reverend Mother (his term) as saying,
"After the service in the chapel, the Reverend Mother asked, 'Oh this is wonderful. Would you mind coming now and laying hands on all the patients in the rooms?' ... More than fifty doctors, nurses, Pentecostal preachers, priests and nuns joined this 'Miracle Invasion' team as we headed for. those hospital rooms." (Ibid.)
Hinn further stated,
".... We entered the lounge ... One by one, they fell under the power. In fact, as we began to pray for one gentleman who was smoking, he fell under the power with a lit cigarette still in his mouth." (Ibid. p. 235.)
What a fascinating story. The only problem is the story appears to be a total fabrication. The same hospital recently released a statement denying that Hinn's story occurred in their hospital. They stated.
"No such events have ever occurred at General Hospital. His pronouncement can neither be verified through the medical records nor by the hospital. Mr. Hinn's claims are outlandish and unwarranted." (Ouarterly Journal, Personal Freedom Outreach, July-Sept, 1995.)
It is clear that Benny Hinn is a Catholic Charismatic in the medieval mystic vein. Our greatest concern should be to warn people of this End Time deception and teach the absolute necessity of careful faithfulness to the Holy Scripture.
The Hinn phenomenon could not exist in a Bible-centered atmosphere. He would be exposed immediately!
Shocking facts about Benny Hinn...
Go to this link for more information: http://www.deceptioninthechurch.com/bhinn.html
At the 1997 National Assemblies of God Conference in Adelaide Benny Hinn again eulogised the Pope and told of his meeting with Cardinal Sin of the Philippines and their private agreement that Sin would promote Hinn and that Hinn would encourage Roman Catholics to return to and remain in their Catholic faith and Church. Notwithstanding these facts prominent AOG leaders in Australia and New Zealand continue to support, endorse and sponsor Benny Hinn's visits to Australasia.
Elougize the pope – praise, extol, laud, sing the praises of, praise to the skies, wax lyrical, romantic, emotional, inspired, get carried away, lose control, go wild, go over the top, lose your self-control, get excited, go wild, be reckless, lose your sense of proportion, rave about, go on about, go mad about, praise etc.

Mr Hinn is ordained by the International Convention of Faith Churches and Ministers, the chief proponents of which are Kenneth Hagin and Kenneth Copeland. He is also fully endorsed by Oral Roberts of the same stable. He has said, ``I no longer believe the faith message" (Christianity Today, October 1991), but he continues to staunchly defend the tenets of this group, which stresses ‘positive confession' and health-and-wealth prosperity teachings: ``Those who attack confession are on the devil's side." (Benny Hinn, TBN, 8th June 1992.) Here is a quote that shows his advocacy of their peculiar ‘you are gods' heresy:
``Now are you ready for some real revelation knowledge? OK. Now watch this: He laid aside His divine form...so one day I would be clothed on earth with the divine form. Kenneth Hagin has a teaching. A lot of people have problems with it. Yet it is an absolute truth. Kenneth Copeland has a teaching. Many Christians have put holes in it, but it's divine truth. Hagin and Copeland say: You are god. Ye are gods.
‘Oh! I can't be god.' Hold it. Let's bring balance to this teaching. The balance is being taught by Hagin. It's those that repeat him that mess it up. The balance is being taught by Copeland, who is my dear friend, but it's those that repeat what he says that are messing it up. You see there brother? When Jesus was on earth, the Bible says that first He disrobed Himself of the divine form. He, the limitless God, became a man, that we men, may become as He is." (Our Position in Christ, Orlando Christian Centre, 1990.)

Luther on ecumenism and papacy
History of the Papacy by J.A. Wylie: "...the Church (so-called) of Rome has no right to rank amongst Christian Churches. She is not a Church, neither is her religion the Christian religion. We are accustomed to speak of Popery as a corrupt form of Christianity. We concede too much. The Church of Rome bears the same relation to the Church of Christ which the hierarchy of Baal bore to the institute of Moses; and Popery stands related to Christianity only in the same way in which Paganism stood related to primeval Revelation. Popery is not a corruption simply, but a transformation. It may be difficult to fix the time when it passed from the one into the other; but the change is incontestible. Popery is the gospel transubstantiated into the flesh and blood of Paganism, under a few of the accidents of Christianity."
Just as in the days of the Apostles, so at this day we are forced to hear from certain denominations that we (by our obstinacy to adhere to the truth) do offend against love and unity in the churches, because we reject their doctrine. It would be better (they say) that we should let it pass, especially since the doctrine in dispute is what they call non-essential, and, therefore (they say) to stir up so great a discord and contention in the church over one or two doctrines (and those not the most important ones) is unfruitful and unnecessary.
To this I reply: Cursed be that love and unity which cannot be preserved except at the peril of the word of God.
The negotiation about doctrinal agreement displeases me altogether, for this is utterly impossible unless the pope has his papacy abolished. Therefore avoid and flee those who seek the middle of the road. Think of me after I am dead and such middle-of-the-road men arise, for nothing good will come of it. There can be no compromise. (What Luther Says, II: 1019)
Ah, my dear brother in Christ, bear with me if here or elsewhere I use such coarse language when speaking of the wretched, confronted, atrocious monster at Rome! He who knows my thoughts must say that I am much, much, much too lenient and have neither words nor thought adequately to describe the shameful, abominable blasphemy to which he subjects the Word and name of Christ, our dear Lord and Savior. There are some Christians, wicked Christians indeed, who now would gloss things over to make the pope appear against in a good light and who, after he does so and has been dragged out of the mud, would like to reinstate him on the altar. But they are wicked people, whoever they may be, who defend the pope and want me to be quiet about the means whereby he has done harm. Truly, I cannot do this. All true, pious Christians, who love Christ and His Word, should, as said, be sincerely hostile to the pope. They should persecute him and injure him…. All should do this in their several calling, to the best of their ability, with all faithfulness and diligence. (What Luther Says, II: 1072)
What kind of a church is the pope’s church? It is an uncertain, vacillating and tottering church. Indeed, it is a deceitful, lying church, doubting and unbelieving, without God’s Word. For the pope with his wrong keys teaches his church to doubt and to be uncertain. If it is a vacillating church, then it is not the church of faith, for the latter is founded upon a rock, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against it (Matt.16:18). If it is not the church of faith, then it is not the Christian church, but it must be an unchristian, anti-Christian, and faithless church which destroys and ruins the real, holy, Christian church. (Luther’s Works, vol. 40, Church and Ministry II, The Keys, p.348)
All this is to be noted carefully, so that we can treat with contempt the filthy, foolish twaddle that the popes present in their decrees about their Roman church, that is, about their devil’s synagogue (Rev.2:9), which separates itself from common Christendom and the spiritual edifice built up on this stone, and instead invents for itself a fleshly worldly, worthless, lying, blasphemous, idolatrous authority over all of Christendom. One of these two things must be true: if the Roman church is not built on this rock along with the other churches, then it is the devil’s church; but if it is built, along with all the other churches, on this rock, then it cannot be lord or head over the other churches. For Christ the cornerstone knows nothing of two unequal churches, but only of one church alone, just as the Children’s Faith, that is, the faith of all of Christendom, says, ”I believe in one holy, Christian church,” and does not say, ”I believe in one holy Roman church.” The Roman church is and should be one portion or member of the holy Christian church, not the head, which befits solely Christ the cornerstone. If not, it is not a Christian but an UN-Christian and anti-Christian church, that is, a papal school of scoundrels. (Luther’s Works, Volume 41, Church and Ministry III, Against The Roman Papacy, An Institution Of The Devil, p.311)
I believe the pope is the masked and incarnate devil because he is the Antichrist. As Christ is God incarnate, so the Antichrist is the devil incarnate. The words are really spoken of the pope when its said that hes a mixed god, an earthly god, that is , a god of the earth. Here god is understood as god of this world. Why does he call himself an earthly god, as if the one, almighty God werent also on the earth? The kingdom of the pope really signifies the terrible wrath of God, namely, the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place. (Luthers Works, vol.54, Table Talks, No.4487, p.346)
C. H. Spurgeon on Popery
"It is the bounden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the Popery in the Church of Rome there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name. It wounds Christ, robs Christ of His glory, puts sacramental efficacy in the place of His atonement, and lifts a piece of bread in the place of the Saviour....If we pray against it, because it is against Him, we shall love the persons though we hate their errors; we shall love their souls, though we loathe and detest their dogmas...."
-- C. H. Spurgeon
Heb 12:2 Och må vi därvid se på Jesus, trons hövding och fullkomnare, på honom, som i stället för att taga den glädje som låg framför honom, utstod korsets lidande och aktade smäleken för intet, och som nu sitter på högra sidan om Guds tron.
Heb 12:3 Ja, på honom, som har utstått så mycken gensägelse av syndare, på honom mån I tänka, så att I icke tröttnen och uppgivens i edra själar.
Heb 12:15 Och sen till, att ingen går miste om Guds nåd, och att ingen giftig rot skjuter skott och bliver till fördärv, så att menigheten därigenom bliver besmittad;
Heb 12:16 sen till, att ingen är en otuktig människa eller ohelig såsom Esau, han som för en enda maträtt sålde sin förstfödslorätt.
Heb 12:17 I veten ju att han ock sedermera blev avvisad, när han på grund av arvsrätt ville få välsignelsen; han kunde nämligen icke vinna någon ändring, fastän han med tårar sökte därefter.
Heb 10:36 I behöven nämligen ståndaktighet för att kunna göra Guds vilja och få vad utlovat är.
Heb 10:37 Ty "ännu en helt liten tid, så kommer den som skall komma, och han skall icke dröja;
Heb 10:38 och min rättfärdige skall leva av tro. Men om någon drager sig undan, så finner min själ icke behag i honom".
Heb 10:39 Dock, vi höra icke till dem som draga sig undan, sig själva till fördärv; vi höra till dem som tro och så vinna sina själar.
Ord 25:26 Såsom en grumlad källa och en fördärvad brunn, så är en rättfärdig som vacklar inför den ogudaktige.
Upp 3:16 Men nu, då du är ljum och varken varm eller kall, skall jag utspy dig ur min mun.
Se Ljum, sammanblandad, mixad, förväxlad, utbytt, utväxlad, ersatt, avlöst, efterträdd, liknöjd, likgiltig!
2Ti 4:7 Jag har kämpat den goda kampen, jag har fullbordat mitt lopp, jag har bevarat tron.
2Ti 4:8 Nu ligger rättfärdighetens segerkrans tillreds åt mig, och Herren, den rättfärdige domaren, skall giva den åt mig på "den dagen", och icke åt mig allenast, utan åt alla som hava älskat hans tillkommelse.
