Can Benny Hinn Heal People

If Benny Hinn can really heal people like he says he can do, then why are there all these hospitals and so many sick people? I would think he could heal them, especially those terminally ill children. Sad!

First let me get your perspective right.Benny Hinn does not heal sick people.He only prays for them.God is the one who heals.Who gets healed and who doesn't is Gods prerogative.The question to be asked is:if Benny can do it,why can't you?On judgement day when we all stand before God,Benny will be rewarded on what he has done,what about you.Don't be quick to discredit people who are trying to do Gods will because you might be wrong.Remember Paul,thought he was doing God a favour when he persecuted the early Christians.Later he found out he was wrong.It is all our duty to pray for the sick and ask God to heal them,not Bennys duty alone.Don't be sad if there are so many sick people but rather be sad if you have done nothing about it.

Of course, he can not. Sounds like a show to me on TV.
---Sue on 9/9/08

Just to clarify, I am NOT the same faith listed below. I completely disagree with that person's comments on BH.
---faith on 7/17/07

God heals through Benny Hinn. He is a faith healer by God's supernatural power. Benny Hinn can heal no one on his own. He is just a vessel that God uses. God decides who he wants to heal, when and how. It is not for some people to be healed. Some people have to die, others be born. It is a time and a season for all things. Read Ecclesiastes chap 3. God does things in His own time and in His own way. We need to accept that.
---Robyn on 7/17/07

If Benny hinn is real, why is he not visiting the hospitals, instead of on TV?
---Trey on 7/17/07

Brenda I totally agree with you that it's a person's faith that brings healing.
Jesus said it many times, "Your faith has made you whole".

All it is simply being a tube for the power of God to flow through.

When a christian realizes that they have the Spirit of the living God in them with all of His power, they will be willing to lay hands on the sick like Peter did in Acts 4.
---Rickey on 4/9/07

catherine, the devil can influence your mind but not destroy it, if you have salvation.
If the devil could destroy all Christians, he would. He cannot.
Don't let the devil take God's protection away from you. Stand your ground, tell him, "It is written" and use the Word that Jesus used when the devil lied. Get behind me, Satan, don't let him push you around.
---Charles on 4/9/07

I have proof. Now, before I go any further please think not that I am prideful here, I only want to convey what God said to me personally. And I quote Him. He said, "The Devil cannot do anything about your Salvation, but He can destroy your mind". Remember, This does not mean one's salvation cannot be lost, God was speaking to me DIRECTLY. But that is proof that it's the Devil that is driving some people right into the nut house.
---catherine on 4/9/07

This B Hinn has been exposed so many many times as a fake, it is more a wonder people still believe this fake preacher. The scriptures says 'God will not be mocked' yet BH does it daily. Who are the people that pay for his jets, his fancy cars and cloths? Who sends him $$$$ whan he makes false prophacys agains and again? one can blame him, but'ignorant' misled people must take part of the blame for the success of this scam artist!
---MikeM on 4/9/07

No human being can heal people. Only God heals.
---Helen_5378 on 4/9/07

Benny Hinn can't heal. God can. He is just a willing flesh for God to use. I believe our faith plays a big part in our healing. I have been healed when others weren't. I believe it was because my faith is so strong. Remember when Jesus said "thy faith has made thee whole" ?
---Brenda on 4/8/07

No, men and women are used of God to heal. They are merely conductors for God and do not heal anyone. Doctor's are also instruments used of God to heal. God will meet you where your faith is to get the job done. I refuse to go to any doctor that refuses to pray for himself and his patient before treating them.
---Terry on 8/10/06

I have heard Benny on several occasions say that he has never healed anyone and that all the glory goes to the Lord. The sick people in the hospital that are not healed is no different than the lost people walking around. Jesus said he died for all sin but there are still lost people. Does that disqualify Jesus? I know several people who have been healed by the Lord through Benny's ministry.
---john on 6/17/06

Eloy, Jesus healed a man once that asked him to help him his unbelief.

lea, I agree with you altho I dont like to point finger at benny...He has too much pride and that is one of the greatest sin. The bible never said anything about people falling over when touched by Jesus.. I am wondering if those who were healed, are still healed...mmmm

Azalee: Yes -- it's primarily about spiritual healing, i.e., receiving Jesus as Saviour & Lord (being born-again) is the greatest miracle & gift anyone can receive from God (Is. 53:5)

God can genuinely heal our physical bodies, using whoever, when & wherever He will for His purpose & good pleasure. (Jn. 9:2-3)
---Leon on 9/25/05

Misinformation again. Pastor Benny Hinn has NEVER CLAIMED TO HEAL ANYONE...He has always said only JESUS HEALS. I wish people would stop judging the Body of Christ.
God Bless you..2 of my best friends were healed in the church that he preached at in Orlando Fla and I received Jesus as Lord there too which is the greatest Miracle of all.
---Azalee on 9/19/05

Some people are following man and not God. Wherever he goes, they go. Some has too much confindence in this man, in which he will fail them from time to time because he is just that...a man.

Benny Hinn CAN'T heal anybody......and he'd be the first to tell you that. He has ALWAYS given all credit to the Lord. I don't agree with everything he says and does, but I have NEVER heard him claim to heal anybody. He treats the Lord with the utmost reverance and honor- I pray for that kind of sensitivity to the moving of the Spirit

---Karin on 9/12/05

and by His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5). Jesus is the healer. If Benny Hinn or any other brother or sister in Christ makes a false statement they should be corrected in a spirit of meekness, like Aquila and Priscilla in Acts 18. Agabus missed it on some details of a prophecy to Paul, but he was not labeled a false prophet. Look at the fruit, look to the Word, and look who it glorifies. To God be the glory.

---Kathay on 9/11/05

if you check the book of acts where peter and john "healed" the man by the beautiful gate they did in the name of Jesus of Nazareth and this healing led to 5000 added to the church at Jerusalem,, benny hinn has been closely investigated and i wonder what he will do when he has to answer to our Lord for what he is doing,,
---MICHELE on 9/6/05

Karin - You're right! Spiritual healing is more important that physical healing! The cool thing is, God doesn't ask us to choose. We can have both spiritual healing and physical healing ... both are available for us. No where in the Bible does it say we must choose one blessing over the other. Praise God!
---DoryLory on 8/26/05

If I had the choice of physical healing (as Benny Hinn supposedly does) which would also be temporary, or spiritual healing that God does,with permanent prognosis, I would have God's healing any day. THAT is more important than physical healing to me and one which i would seek,Is physical healing more important than spiritual healing.. God is the healer, not Benny Hinn, do we ever hear from those that Benny Hinn has "healed"?

A lot here just don't get it!

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not about you, me, personal belief's, doctrine's, fame, money, judging, who's right or who's wrong, etc, it's all about Jesus Christ & Him crucified, PERIOD!

You wonder why missionaries are coming to America, some here can't see the forest for the tree's!

lea, are you confusing me with someone else? i have not ever spoken any word against Benny Hinn. Am i perfect? God's Word says this: "For by one offering he has perfected for ever them that are sanctified." Hebrews 10:14. Is God's Word true? Yes, every single word.
---Eloy on 8/23/05

have you ever spoken something to other Christians and been wrong i know i have Are you perfect ? No you arent and what you posted about Benny Hinn is it reputable i doubt it and even if it is, it doesnt prove him to be a false teacher only that he is human and makes mistakes as Do we all.........folks we need to quit pointing the finger . God is in Control.

Moderator - I have seen Hinn in person and believe that according to scripture he would be considered a false teacher and false prophet. I do believe that due to faith some people are healed during his crusades, some are fake healings and some are demonically healed. I believe Hinn's biggest error is pride thou.

lupe, Thank you for quoting Mr.Hinn's statement. This calls Christians into accountability to God to make wise spiritual judgments (discernment not condemnation) concerning his ministry. Questions arise regarding the spirit giving Mr.Hinn revelations, in light of his heretical/erroneous theology and retraction later. 1 Jn 4:1 "Test the spirits. . .", Matt 24:24 "For many false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect. . ."
---Chris on 8/22/05

I know I will get hate comments on this but if someone is serious, as I have said before, about our faith, we need to check everything with Scripture, whether it comes from me or anyone. It is so important for us to know the Truth. Our whole lives hang on what we know to be true. We cannot just believe what anyone tells us, we have to be approved to our calling. If we have it wrong we will witness wrong. I just ask, to check for yourselves if you don't believe what I have written before condemning me.

6. I know there will be feelings hurt about anyone talking about Benny since he is a Christian and many come to Christ through him, but you have to remember, he does not save anyone, God does. No Christian should simply look the other way and pretend it doesn't matter. Once we allow teaching on the nature of God to be twisted to the extent that they have, we will begin to believe another religion.

5. that there are three separate and distinct beings-in other words, three Gods. This unbiblical view (Thitheism) runs contrary to the whole of Scripture, which affirms one God revealed in three Persons. Now at this point we can say, "they do make some bizarre things but let's not make a federal case out of it. But in this case, those who believe that God is made in the image of man do not believe in the God of Scripture.

4. These were his words and when questioned by Christianity Today about this heretical statement, Hinn responded, "That was a very dumb statement..I told my church the very next week that the statement was wrong." But Hinn explicitly claimed that his statement was a revelation from God. Thus according to Hinn, God would have made a very dumb remark. Statements like those to millions is so important. The assertion that each member of the Trinity has His own distinct spirit-body implies

Dory Lory: Thanks for your admonition to be "sensitive" re those who are healed vs those who are not. There are lots of people who are not healed and it doesn't make for second class citizens.

I know that many here believe whole heartly in Benny Hinn. Some don't want to hear another Christian speak against someone that is supposed to be Christian. I don't doubt Benny's salvation but I do doubt that he believes what we believe in the essentials of the Christian faith he teaches. Here is one example of a sermon broadcast to a potential listening audience which numbers in the millions. Hinn made the following statement, supposely via "revelation knowledge"

from such, turn way.
---wayne on 8/22/05

Benny Hinn is just an instrument of GOD in healing those people who have faith. Don't judge the servant of GOD, he didnt claim that he can heal people but instead telling everyone that JESUS is the one healing thru the power of the Holy Spirit.

I had an opportunity to attend one of the Benny Hinn crusades that was held in my city. Do people get healed at those crusades? I believe they do. Why? because the atmosphere in the bulding was so CHARGED with FAITH. The people came believing that they would be healed. I beleive that Benny Hinn has learned how to tap into the Faith of the people and its their Faith at these crusades that makes them whole and not Benny Hinn Himself perse. bj

This is a little off topic but I think we need to be sensitive here.

The truth is, there can be many reasons why a person doesn't get healed. A lack of faith can be one reason but there are others too. It isn't our place to judge or assume why someone doesn't get healed. We don't know everything about any given situation. Only God does.

I believe that God is the Healer, He wants to heal but, unfortunately, not everyone gets healed ... for whatever reason. We need to be sensitive.

Man looks on the outside but God looks on the heart. Some people I respect believe he is serving God. I dont know. A truth is that a gift does not validate character.

I have been to four Benny Hinn crusades and he has never said he is the healer, when healed believers thank him, he immediately tells them, I did nothing, its Jesus Christ who touched and healed you. The Holy Spirit is so welcome in the services, allowed to have full control and its the peoples faith in God and the annointing, where they receive their healings.

Healing is just as real as sickness is. Even Jesus Christ did not heal every body: all who came to him believing got healed, but those without faith stayed sick. Many sick do not even believe in Jesus, nor in prayer, nor in the divine power of healing. The fact is, there are some nonbelieving doctors and nurses who have pesonally witnessed miraculous medical healings. And many patient's medical records, including my own, are filled with documented healings (naturally or humanly unexplainable recoveries).
---Eloy on 8/20/05

Jesus on earth didn't heal the world he healed those his Father told him. Some he on the inside where it matters. Plus one has to have the faith to be healed. Christ often said to those he healed that their faith had healed them. So if one doen't have faith, or believe do you really think they can be healed?? There will come a time when those IN CHRIST will have no pain and this day in age isn't it. So no all will not be healed anytime soon.
---Judith on 8/20/05

Those of you that bash Benny Hinn have lack of understanding .........and its people like you that saddens me, why dont you go out in the highways and by ways and pray for the sick or the diseased children...if you believe he is wrong then pray for him, i ashamed to call you Christians when you dont even know the man personally you just assume what you hear which is most Gossip.

Benny Hinn cannot heal people but God does. He is just an instrument of God just like everyone else. You and I can be use by God. Those who did not receive their healing are those who did not believe that God can heal them. Second, if Benny Hinn is living luxuriously it is because he is serving the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. There are many people who love Benny Hinn and I believe they are also sharing their blessings to him like their financial blessings.

God will heal whom He wishes to! Rather than asking some TV man living a life of luxury off other's sorrows to pray for you (see Sam's post below!), ask your Christian brothers and sisters who are close to you. It's a FALSE idea to think that MORE people praying for you makes God 'hear any better' than the prayer of a single humble servant! At times though, God may use our prayers for others to heal selfishness in our own hearts.

I watched an interesting T.V. program a while back of which, Benny Hinn Ministries was the topic. The producers of the show had done much research on this subject. Some of the things they found were:
Several people who were supposedly healed in Benny's services died within days or weeks of their "so called Healing".
Benny was spending $3500 a night for a luxury suite of a hotel on some Island. Benny and his associates seem to be living a life of luxury at his follower's expense.

Read These Insightful Articles About Bible Verses

I am not a follower of Benny Hinn's ministry but I doubt if Benny believes any healing takes place without the Holy Spirit. Perhaps his remarks can be attributed to a passage from Matthew where Jesus tells his disciplies -"HEAL THE SICK, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons." (Matthew 10:8)

I checked 8 translations, they all say, Jesus told his followers to heal the sick. He told them to do it. Perhaps that's where Benny is getting his direction.
---DoryLory on 8/20/05

It is not him who does it, but God.The power of God has been shown through him because he usually have miracle crusade, and the Man is always going around the world to do crusades.
Going to the hospital can just be one of his plan just like he do crusades, or maybe he does go to the hospital and we don't know that.
---Gaekgone on 8/20/05

Man cannot heal. I may not agree with the way Benny Hinn goes about praying for people and they being healed, but it isn't Benny Hinn who is healing those people. It is God. Those who are healed have faith that they will be healed, so God uses Benny Hinn as a tool. God is the ultimate healer. We are just vessels being used, if we are willing to be used. I think that God allows us to go through afflictions to better our faith in Him. Job, from the Bible, is an excellent example for us.

i have to answer this one

let god judge,jesus said believe even for the works sake

read your bible and believe it is god's word

I am not saying he can't, because God can work through anyone. People must have faith in order to be healed, and plus God has to give the person the gift of healing. A person who has this gift can't go all over the world healing people, it sounds simple, but yet it isn't. There are some people don't believe in healing because they have been sick for so long, and they don't know God's divine power.
---Rebecca_D on 8/20/05

People's opinions of B.H. vary tremendously and have been thrashed out before on C.N. We know that real healing does go on in the name of Jesus and we know that there are charlatans at work. The devil counterfeits many things. Personally I am wary of people who promote themselves in the way that some people do on Christian T.V. If they are humble Christians why do they need to push THEMSELVES forward so much? Try to be discerning.
