AUSTIN, TEXAS - Many years ago, Pastor Benny Hinn appeared on TBN, and was upset because many Christians were saying he was teaching false doctrine. Cleary angered at his Christian brethren, Benny Hinn said, "Quit attacking men of God. Someone is attacking me because something I am teaching. Let me tell you something, brother, You Watch It! Dear God in heaven I wish I could... I've looked for just one verse in the Bible. I can't seem to find it... One verse that said if you don't like them, kill them... I wish I could find it."
Pastor Benny Hinn went on to say, "Sometimes I wish God would give me a Holy Ghost machine gun. I'd blow your head off!"
To this day, Pastor Hinn has not been able to find a Bible verse that teaches that he could kill someone if he didn't like them. But it turns out, like many of the things he teaches, Pastor Hinn may have found a way around the scripture. Video footage from his latest Miracle Healing Crusade in Austin, Texas, showed Benny Hinn brandishing a machine gun on stage. At first people were scared.
Years ago I prayed for a Holy Ghost machine gun and the Holy Ghost has given me this machine gun!
Then Pastor Benny Hinn fired several shots into the sky and said, 'Praise the Lord, he has granted my request! Years ago I prayed for a Holy Ghost machine gun and the Holy Ghost has given me this machine gun!'"
The crowd erupted with jubilation. A multitude then came on stage and looked at the Holy Ghost machine gun: and whosoever touched the Holy Ghost machine gun, was immediately healed.
"Then there was a series of automatic gunfire, and everyone in the first few rows started falling over backwards.", Norman Jones said. "But this was normal for a Benny Hinn Crusade."
Norman continued, "Then people started running for their lives. Something was really wrong. I could feel it in my spirit. Then I saw what happened: those that fell backwards were not slain in the Spirit, but were slain in the Spirit by the Holy Ghost machine gun wielded by the hands of Pastor Benny Hinn."
Those that fell backwards were not slain in the Spirit, but were slain in the Spirit by the Holy Ghost machine gun wielded by the hands of Pastor Benny Hinn.
Pastor Hinn then quoted the scripture, "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord. I will repay." Everyone was unsure why he was quoting this passage as he continued to shoot in the sky. Later we found out Benny Hinn was applying this verse to himself to justify why he had slain scores of people in the front rows.
There was confusion everywhere, but eventually everything started to calm down. One man said, "Maybe Benny is right. He prayed for a Holy Ghost machine gun and he received a Holy Ghost machine gun. He just quoted the scripture that vengeance belonged to him."
The service continued for another hour and then everyone went home. Benny Hinn's website says he is scheduled to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada for his next Miracle Healing Crusade, though it didn't say if he would be bringing his Holy Ghost machine gun.
