This Unique Ministry Pt 1

This Unique Ministry of Miracles, Part 1

  • God’s promises are timeless!

  • God’s unchanging character is certain.

  • Together we can accomplish God’s agenda for this generation.

The front-page headline appeared in a major newspaper where we were holding a large crusade. I remember it like yesterday.

Already, this ministry—marked by numerous healings and demonstrations of the Holy Spirit’s power—was already a couple of decades old, though we still hadn’t yet started holding the record-setting gatherings with millions upon millions in attendance.

The reporter had attended a service and though testimonies of remarkable healings were included in the story, the writer was apparently mystified that anyone would still believe in such things.

Well, here we are in 2020. In a time of global pandemics, panics, and unrest, I’m here to tell you that the question—“Do you believe in miracles?”—is still being asked, more urgently than ever, and believers must be ready to answer. How we reply to this pressing question can make an eternal difference for multitudes around the world!

What is a Miracle?

Our Lord Jesus told His followers:

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12, NKJV).

According to Webster’s Dictionary, a miracle is an “event that appears to be contrary to the laws of nature and is regarded as an act of God; an event or action that is totally amazing, extraordinary, or unexpected.”

Most believers in the world today, regardless of their denominational background, generally acknowledge that God is able to heal and that He wants to pour blessings upon His children. However, their views on how and when He heals vary widely.

  • Some hold firmly to the belief that God does not heal today, maintaining that He healed only in what they refer to as “the day of miracles,” a time when the Lord Jesus was on earth. People who believe this way assert with deep conviction that since Jesus is no longer on earth physically to perform supernatural works, miracles are no longer possible.
  • Others reluctantly admit that God, at times, may still heal some needy individual, rescuing that person from certain tragedy through an act of divine intervention.
  • Still others advocate a mind-over-matter approach, insisting that by maintaining a strong mental attitude, victory can be realized over sickness and adversity.
  • And a growing number of believers, me included, wholeheartedly believe that God clearly works miracles every day!

The world has many theories about God, of course, and the question of miracles has been discussed and debated for centuries by great theologians. Yet mankind’s opinions have no bearing on God Almighty.

The Bible is the final authority on healing and miracles, and only through its sacred pages can we discover the true nature and character of God, along with the benefits and blessings that belong to us as His children.

What Does the Bible Say?

The Scriptures tell us clearly that it is God’s will to heal His children today and that it is His desire for us to enjoy the blessings of divine health and His healing touch. Both the Old and New Testaments have much to say about miracles of healing.

God’s ever-present disposition toward us regarding health and healing is revealed in His covenant of healing with the children of Israel:

“I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians, For I am the Lord that healeth thee” (Exodus 15:26).

He said, “I am the God”—in present tense. He didn’t say, “I was” nor “I will be,” but “I am!”

God is ever present. We serve “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). There are no boundaries, limitations, or time constraints on God’s promises. His promise to us for healing and health is the same today as it was to any past generation.

The words of David acknowledged that covenant when he said:

Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases. (Psalm 103:1-3)

The Scriptures reveal how the Lord Jesus ministered healing to the sick, performing miracles and healing to all who came to Him. God is and has always been the Healer. Throughout the Word of God, repeated reference is made of Jesus healing all who come to Him, never refusing anyone or turning them away, especially those in spiritual darkness and bondage:

When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. (Matthew 8:16)

Again and again, the Scriptures declare that Jesus went and healed all—not one, not two, not three, not 10, but all!

In addition to performing miracles of healing, the Lord Jesus also gave power to His disciples to heal, for the Bible declares:

“Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick” (Luke 9:1-2).

We have that same power and authority today!

Does God Perform Miracles Today?

Today many believers acknowledge God’s ability to heal. However, like the leper who came to Jesus in Matthew 8 begging for healing, they pray, “If it be your will, Lord, heal me.” They are just not sure that it is God’s will for them to be healed.

God’s promises are timeless! When you bring your need to the Lord in prayer, take the “if” out of your asking and pray in faith, expecting to receive! As Scripture promises, “The prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up” (James 5:15).

Pastor Benny healing

It is God’s will for you to walk in divine health and be in a right relationship with Him: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 2).

God assures us that He has not and will not change: “I am the Lord, I change not” (Malachi 3:6).

Just as it was when the Lord Jesus walked on this earth and those who saw Him perform signs, wonders, and miraculous acts, so it is today. Miracles still happen today. Blind eyes still receive their sight. Deaf ears still begin to hear. The crippled and the lame still leap to their feet and walk.

God’s unchanging character is certain. He truly desires to pour blessings upon His children, and as His child you can expect them to be showered on you:

“Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above” (Genesis 49:25).

Miracles are certainly part of the vast covenant provision that God has made available for you.

And whether a miracle occurs instantaneously or by process of time, God does heal yesterday, today, and forever!

This Unique Ministry of Miracles

One of the many ways I know how much this ministry is being used is reading the multitude of reports that come to me day after day. Here are a few testimonies that have powerfully touched my heart:

Jacqueline S., France

Thank you for praying for me. I watch your programs via the internet. I had a rough childhood. You’ve helped me so much in the years that I’ve been watching. I especially want to thank you for believing in miracles. I’ve seen them in my own life, including physical and emotional healing. Thank you for being faithful in sharing God’s Word!

Marilyn F., California

I’ve been a long-time partner with your ministry, and I can’t begin to thank you enough for what God has done through you for me. Years ago, I was healed of a Melanoma. Nearly ten years ago I was healed of a triple negative breast cancer. In each case when the doctors examined me afterward, they said, “We can’t understand!” I told them, “I got a second opinion.” When they asked, “Who?” I said, “The Great Physician, Jesus Christ!” Oh, thank you, so much, Pastor Benny, for remaining faithful in sharing the Word and operating in the miraculous!

Beatriz M., Spain

A few years ago you held a crusade in Madrid. Members of my family attended, including a brother who had been suffering from osteochondroma, a painful bone condition. That night he went forward, and God healed him completely! We are all continuing to rejoice in this amazing miracle, and we’ve seen such a difference in our entire family as we now serve our Lord!

Lawrence, South Korea

When I was a seven-year-old boy, I saw my first Benny Hinn video tape that someone shared with our family. As I watched it, I cried and cried because I realized our God loves us and wants to heal people. I not only accepted Christ into my heart, but I met the Holy Spirit, just like you said. And from that day you became my spiritual father, even though we’ve never met in person. I’ve read all your books and watched all of your programs. Today, I am a pastor. Thank you for all that you mean to me!

Oh, how I wish you could sit with me as I read through even more reports like these, my eyes brimming with tears.

How can I not be encouraged when I am constantly reminded of the fact that God desires to heal and answer our prayers?

How can I not be thankful and believe even more in Almighty God who continues to direct our steps?

And how can I not dedicate myself anew to being used to bring people together to unite in purpose and prayer?

My Request to You

You, too, are a very special part of this ministry of miracles!

I can tell you that during the past 46 years of faithfully preaching the Gospel around the world, my heart has not wavered from the calling on this ministry and the demonstration of His power through miracles!

I can also proclaim to you that the intensity of my calling has not lessened; instead, it continues to grow immeasurably as our heavenly home comes more and more into view on the horizon.

Today, I’m driven more than ever to preach the Gospel to the billions who still need to hear the message of God’s saving and healing power—through any means possible!

I encourage you to give toward the spread of the Good News, for I know that as you make the connection between your need and your seed, something supernatural happens.

God promises to bless those who bless others:

“He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness” (2 Corinthians 9:10, ESV).

The psalmist speaks of the righteous giver: “His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed” (Psalm 112:2-3).

And as you give to share the Gospel, Almighty God also promises these covenant blessings of protection:

He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity as he continually watches over you. You will be guarded by God himself. You will be safe when you leave your home and safely you will return. He will protect you now, and he’ll protect you forevermore! (Psalm 121:7-8, TPT)

Sowing your seed places you in agreement with God’s Word! He wants you to be blessed and protected in every area of life—spiritually, physically, financially, and relationally.

It is His will that you walk in divine health, protection, and abundance in your covenant relationship with Him (3 John 2).

But remember, significant times call for extraordinary steps of faith. What kind of steps, you ask?

  • If you need a spiritual miracle, a step of faith in the spiritual realm will be required. You had to ask Christ into your heart before He came in as your Lord and Savior. He knocked at the door of your heart, but you had to open it (Revelation 3:20).
  • If you desire a physical miracle, then God will require an act of faith in the physical realm, just as He told the lame man. “Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole!” (Luke 17:19).
  • If you want a financial miracle, it’s important to act on the revelation you’ve received: “He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully” (2 Corinthians 9:6).

Our precious Lord always requires a step of faith, but God truly does use these steps to bring about a massive harvest.

My Urgent Request to You

Miracles are for today, and this ministry is unique in its calling—positioned for the coming explosion of revival that will come as a result of His demonstration of power that the world seeks to see and understand.

God has called this unique, historic ministry to take the life-saving and miracle-working message of the Gospel to the nations, and I am asking you from the deepest part of my heart to give today for this mighty work of the Lord so we can continue to use every means possible to proclaim the Gospel and to make advance preparations for the crusades to be scheduled as the COVID-19 pandemic lifts. Help me take the good news of Jesus Christ through the awesome doors that have been opened to us.

I encourage you to plant your most generous step-of-faith seed—whatever God directs!

Whatever He has placed in your hand, as you release it from your hand as seed, He will give you more to sow and multiply it.

Benny Hinn smiling with Bible

Together we can accomplish God’s agenda for this generation. Together we can do our part, give our best, and surrender our all to our wonderful Jesus, the One who deserves our lives, our gifts, our talents, our all.

What better time than right now to plant your financial seed during this urgent hour when God has called us to take the life-saving and miracle-working Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations!
