Did you ever notice 10,000 prayer letters piled up in front of him and he asks God to answer every prayer request for healing, anointing the letters even with oil. We are to pray specifically for our needs not a general prayer for everyone at once when there are serious personal needs.This not the way the body of Christ is to function looking to certain men as their mediators to heaven.However God wants his people to discern and often times he will test them by a miracle to see whom they really love and follow.

I hear over and over again that people come from all over the world to be there so God can heal them. Whose to say it wouldn't have occurred if they stayed home if all one needs is faith.God has ordained the local body to do the ministry to the people they know.If one is sick they are to go to the elders of the Church and be anointed with oil.

There are many who are our greatest examples of faith that had to go on what God said yesterday.Rarely do I ever hear a person say well Benny must be of God because his teachings are so biblical.Its usually people with Benny Hinn and there feelings concerning him, that they draw there conclusions from and not the Bible.
