Benny Hinn: Billy Graham’s Death Will Start Revival

Faith healer Benny Hinn recently made these comments:

Quote:
Benny Hinn Believes Billy Graham's Death Will Start 'Revival'
By Michael Gryboski
Christian Post
July 23, 2012

Preacher and televangelist Benny Hinn has said on a Trinity Broadcasting Network program that he believes when the Rev. Billy Graham dies, America will experience a major religious revival.
...
"The sign will be Billy Graham's death," said Hinn, as another individual on the video spoke of "a manifestation of power" being brought down on thousands of people.

"You are talking about a people in hiding, just like Elijah was hiding … The Lord said to me in '89 – yeah, '89, He said when Oral Roberts and Billy Graham go home will be the key, will be a sign, of the beginning of the greatest revival on earth. Oral is home. Billy is about to go home. And when he does, I am telling the whole church, get ready."

In other news, Hinn got back together with his ex-wife:

Jack Hayford to Perform Benny and Suzanne Hinn's Remarriage
By Michael Gryboski
Christian Post
June 27, 2012


Benny and Suzanne Hinn have confirmed more details about their upcoming remarriage, including date, place, and who will oversee the ceremony.

Jack Hayford, a Pentecostal minister who is chancellor of King's University in Los Angeles and leader of Jack Hayford ministries, will oversee the ceremony. Benny Hinn has credited Hayford with helping to restore the marriage of the Hinn couple, who divorced in 2010.

"You wake up to the fact that you need your wife, and she wakes up to the fact that she needs her husband," said Benny Hinn on a recent episode of "The 700 Club."

"I have always loved this girl and she has always loved me. We never broke the covenant. Our marriage has been restored. We just want to make sure that we don't repeat the same mistakes."

The remarriage has been announced to take place on the evening of Friday, Oct. 26, at Calvary Assembly in Orlando, Fla. – the church that Suzanne Hinn's father once served as lead pastor.

Their divorce records were sealed so the details aren't known to the public.

I heard an interesting stat about Billy Graham, I'm not sure if it's true...but it sure sounds feasible. Supposedly, he has spoken to more people live than anyone in history. It kinda makes sense...he's been preaching to stadiums full of people for more than 60 years continuously.

Never went to church on a Sunday again after that day. I'd started going to church a few weeks before, and out of curiousity at booked to go on the trip.

However church and the meeting just confirmed to me, there was nothing there for me.

I highly doubt it.

The sight of Billy Graham, Cliff Richard, Mary Whitehouse and Lord Longford on the same stage would have been too much for me.

I went to a Rolling Stones concert in 1989, and I sat pretty far from the stage, but I could tell it was Keith Richards up on that stage - even from that distance, there's no mistaking the sunken eye sockets and the road map face

I would've taken this news more seriously had Benny Hill and not Benny Hinn said it.

So Benny Hinn wants to hitch his wagon the the Billy Graham money train by associating himself with Brother Billy so that when Graham dies the first person we think of is Benny Hinn? Could he be that mercenary? Well, of course he could. This is actually classier than his faith-healing stock in trade.

Shameless indeed. But, it makes me smile... something about Benny Hinn doing the money-grubbing dance right on top of that crusty old fraud's coffin is just too delicious, and appropriate.
