Billy Graham, Benny Hinn, all celebrity preachers are deceivers.



"Mark 16:15 preach the gospel to every creature. Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega,... 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, ... have right to the tree of life, and... enter ... the city."

Billy Graham, Benny Hinn, all celebrity preachers are deceivers.

Jesus Christ has come to the world twice to save us. He became a man, died for our sins, and became the author of salvation, to forgive our past sins. Then he has come as God, to turn us away from our sins. If this is done, we will not sin anymore, and Jesus Christ will forgive our past sins. It is our salvation.

Creation, Disobedience, Curse, and Salvation

God has created all things, including angels. God created man from the dust and gave him a spirit. He gave a commandment to Adam, and then to people, so that they may learn to mortify the flesh and grow in spirit, even to become his Sons. Then, as sons of God, they will inherit his kingdom. Such a privilege was not given to angels. The prime archangel got upset over this and tried to destroy God's plan by deception. He deceived Eve. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and God cursed them. He cursed the archangel to become Satan, the devil. One third of the angels joined Satan. God cursed them to become devils and demons. Since then, Satan continues to deceive people, using false preachers. Many people love God and escape deception. God adopts them as his sons, and they inherit the kingdom of God in heaven for eternity to come.

Turns us away from Sins; Remission of Sins.

Disobeying God is sin. But Jesus Christ saves us from sinning, for us to inherit his kingdom. But we have two problems. One is; we have already committed sins. These sins must be forgiven. The second is; we have an instinct or an addiction to commit sin. As long as the addiction is in us, we will commit sin. It must be removed. If these two problems are solved, then we will inherit the kingdom of God, as Sons of God. Jesus Christ will help us in this. "I John 2:2 says,.. he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world." Propitiation is the sacrifice Jesus has made by his blood for the whole world. "Romans 3:25 says, Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, ..." So, propitiation and blood, is to forgive our past sins. How is it done? "Hebrews 5:9 says, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;" By sacrificing himself, he became the author of salvation. And if we obey him, he will forgive our past sins. Obey him is, not sinning. So, our addiction to commit sins must be removed, so that we may not sin. "Galatians 1:4 says, (Jesus) gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world ..:" That is, Jesus delivers us from committing the sins of the world. "Acts 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." The resurrected Lord Jesus Christ has come to us, to turn us away from our sins. Jesus Christ is in this world for the last 2000 and more years, as God in the Spirit. When we are turned away from our sins, as the author of salvation, he forgives our past sins. Then we will inherit the kingdom of God, which is heaven.

Evil people hate Light, Good people love Light.

John 3:19-21 say, that Jesus Christ is in this world now as light; evil people hate the light, and they will not come to him. But those who do good works will come to the light, and they do the works of God. Evil people love darkness. It is the religion with counterfeit Jesus, who is another Jesus, false Christs, anti-Christs, and so on. These two groups are permanent-steady, one is for God and the other is for the devil. Then, there is another group, that is still in darkness, but looking for the light, desires to come out of darkness, and they need help to come out of it. False preachers will try to keep them in darkness. God wants us to bring them out of darkness and to the Light. As servants of God, we must bring them out of deception to God.

How Preachers deceive the Common People?

Let us see how people are deceived. Satan chooses proud, wise, smart, and famous people. Satan can easily deceive them because of their pride. They know scriptures. But they do not want to obey them, since they want to enjoy the pleasures of sin. Satan convinced them that they can enjoy sin and inherit heaven by the loopholes in scripture. But the word of God has no loopholes, they are stumbling stones for the disobedient to fall. Then, Satan uses them to deceive others. Let us see what they do. First of all, they preach many points from scripture truthfully. They preach that the wages of sin is death, the wrath of God will be upon the disobedient, eternal punishment will be horrible, and so on. People may mistake them as truth preachers. They preach it with authority and emotion and stir up excitement in people. Secondly, they identify themselves with the people, saying that they also do sin like them. They meet them in their level. So, people will be comfortable with them, since they are together in it. Finally, the preacher will open the deception package, in the same way Satan opened the deception package to Eve. Satan promised that she will be as God, knowing good and evil; she did not recognize the trap at that time and it took her to hell. Every false preacher has the same strategy. They will show you an easy way to God, through a loophole, which will damn you. Let me pick just two famous preachers, Billy Graham from evangelical side and Benny Hinn from spirit manifestation side, just to show how they deceive. Everyone deceive, but these two are just for examples. The whole religious world is filled with deception. It is unbelievably too deep. Their deception is intentional. They are not doing it ignorantly, but they do it purposely. They know the scriptures of salvation very well. The problem is; they study the bible as a book to carry out their profession effectively. They neither believe God, nor the bible as the word of God. They will not tell you this, and what all they do is: - a show filled with lies. Their preachings are to entertain you with jokes and fun, and some time as a horror movie with a happy ending. The major portion of their audience know them, and they go to their meetings to be entertained, to admire their drama, and to enjoy the thrill. So, it is all a show. Let us begin.

Horror movie with happy ending by Billy Graham

Billy Graham is rich. He quoted Mark 8:36. It gives warning to rich people. It says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Then he told, "{many of you have gained the world—everything you ever dreamed. But you found it is not enough.}" So, the horror movie begins with this warning. Then he told, {we are all sinners. "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23). "In sin my mother conceived me," (Psalm 51:5.} So, they are all sinners. Then he confirmed it openly, by saying that he is as much a sinner as they are. He connects himself with the audience; in a way he tells them that he is one of them and not to panic. Then he gave more scriptures. He said; "{when God looks at their heart, He says it’s full of evil imagination (Proverbs 6:18). The Bible says your heart is wicked. Jeremiah said, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9).}" I think that the audience enjoy the thrill, and it was not fear. Then he said, "{We’ve sinned against God, and we are never going to solve the problems until we find what’s wrong with us, until something radical takes place in our heart to give us a cure, you’re going to die. You’re going to die in your sins. The Bible says our hearts are blind and deceitful (Ephesians 4:18 and Jeremiah 17:9).}" Please notice; he knows scriptures. He is not ignorant. He deceives people purposely, but not ignorantly. Then he said, {Yes, there is a day of judgment coming when every man and woman and boy and girl will have to stand before a righteous God to give an account for one thing— The Bible says the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). And, ladies and gentlemen, I believe the Bible, that death is coming upon every person in the world}. Wow! Please notice this, he is telling this with the backing of the scriptures; and everybody in the audience, including Billy Graham, will go to hell. They all admit that they are sinning, and have evil hearts. But I think that the audience are not in fear; and they exactly know what will happen next. It is just a horror movie or drama, and it will have a happy ending. Now listen to his complete sentence. {Ladies and gentlemen, I believe the Bible, that death is coming upon every person in the world who is without God;} It is a marvelous twist! Until the very end, it was our sin and our evil heart, but when he finishes, it is neither ous sins, nor our evil hearts, but it is God. Everybody sins and has evil heart including Billy Graham, but nobody has rejected God or Jesus Christ. The thrill was, the bible says, they will all die because they are still sinning, but the happy ending is that nobody dies because nobody has rejected God or Jesus Christ. If by chance, if anybody does not have Jesus, walk down the aisle, and they will give Jesus to you at the end of the aisle. So, we all go to heaven. It is a good show, and a horror movie with a happy ending. The show time is over, and the audience are coming out of the auditorium theater.

Spiritual confusion of salvation by Benny Hinn

The next person is not as eloquent as Dr. Billy Graham, but not less in his talents. He is powerful on the spiritual side using the power on the word of God, the spirit of God, and the manifestations in healing and such things. He can preach like any other famous preachers. He presents himself as the master in the subject of the Spirit of God, but he does not know the difference between the Holy Ghost and the Holy Spirit. He does not know how God, who was in the Spirit, became flesh. He tells cheap stories like any other preacher. He is not as artistic in vocabulary as Billy Graham, but he uses clichés and spiritual circus to compensate that. Let me give an account of, "What is to be saved by Benny Hinn, from a Personal Freedom Outreach Publication, 9th edition, of December 2002." This is the way it goes. He asked people to repeat after him, phrase by phrase and they repeated after him. Let me tell the phrases one by one. 1, ‘Within me, is a God-Man.’ 2, 'I am a God-Man.' 3, "this spirit man within me, is God—is a God-Man." 4, ‘He’s born of heaven. He’s a super being.’ Then he declared this statement; “God came to earth and touched a piece of dust and turned it into a god…Are you a child of God? Then you’re divine! Then you’re not dust anymore. Are you a child of God? Then you’re not human!" Then he explained saying; "When you say, ‘I am saved,’ what are you saying? You’re saying, ‘I am a Christian.’ What does that word mean? It means ‘I am anointed.’ You know what the word ‘anointed’ means? It means ‘Christ.’ When you say, ‘I am a Christian,’ you are saying, ‘I am Messiah’ in the Hebrew. I am a little Messiah walking on earth. That’s a shocking revelation." Then he pronounced again this: "Now ladies and gentlemen, you are on earth exactly what Jesus was on earth… As He is so am I, on earth. …When you walk, Jesus is walking. When you talk, He’s talking. When you move, He’s moving." and so on. This is salvation according to Benny Hinn. You may say that it is too much, or it is crazy. I admit. But, he is not this way all the time. Thousands of people believe him and have some kind of spiritual experience from him. But it is not salvation; it is a weird and deception.

Unless Sinning is Past, God will not Forgive Sins

Jesus Christ has come to the world twice for our salvation. First, he became a man, died as a sacrifice, and became the author of salvation. Then Jesus has come as God in the Spirit, and he is here for the last 2000 and more years. As God, Jesus Christ turns his people away from their sins, as in Acts 3:26. Then, as the author of salvation, he forgives all our past sins, as in Hebrews 5:9 and Romans 3:25. But, deceiving preachers hide step one, which is that God turns his people away from their sinning. Even if we bring it to them, they will fight it as heresy, and reject it. They preach that he died on the cross, in our place as our substitution, and he forgives all our sins, which are past, present and future, by his blood. These are all lies, and they are not from the scripture. But, unless Jesus Christ turns us away from our sinning, he will not apply his blood on us to forgive our past sins. This is the word of God, which is scripture. Jesus Christ is the author of salvation, but not preachers.
