Televangelist Benny Hinn recently asserted that Christians who give money to the Lord’s work will be financially protected in the world’s darkest days to come. Hinn said in a livestream on YouTube titled “Shameless Begging,” in which viewers were prompted to donate to his ministry, “Well, listen, I want you to give to the Lord’s work. I want you to sow seed in the Lord’s work. We’re facing days of such darkness and such danger unseen in the history of man.”

He continued, “Unseen since Adam, worse than anything that has happened in the past what’s coming on the way. And only those who’ve been faitful in giving to God’s work will be protected financially in those days.” Hinn insisted while suggesting that even people can lose money, what they give to the Lord’s work as a seed cannot be lost, “A faithful man will abound with blessings, so this is not just for now. This is for the future.” Hinn added, “A faithful man will abound with blessing. You can’t lose your seed; any farmer will tell you that. You can’t lose your seed because the seed goes into your tomorrow. Seed goes into your future. Seed produces a harvest that has seed in it. You can’t lose a seed; yes, you can lose money, but not a seed — that’s powerful.”

According to The Christian Post, he urged his followers to “give today to this ministry” and told them, “God will bless you over and over and over.” He added, “So, you can give on the platform you’re watching me on, go to our website, or text” to donate. The video comes nearly five years after Hinn claimed he would renounce the prosperity gospel, stating that the Gospel “is not for sale.” Hinn claimed during a Facebook Live broadcast in 2019, “I’m sorry to say that prosperity has gone a little crazy, and I’m correcting my own theology, and you need to all know it. Because when I read the Bible now, I don’t see the Bible in the same eyes I saw 20 years ago.”

Hinn said, “I think it’s an offense to the Lord; it’s an offense to say give $1,000. I think it’s an offense to the Holy Spirit to place a price on the gospel. I’m done with it. I will never again ask you to give $1,000 or whatever amount because I think the Holy Ghost is just fed up with it.”

“Did you hear me?” Hinn asked as his audience responded affirmatively in high spirits. “I think it hurts the gospel. So, I’m making this statement for the first time in my life. And frankly, I don’t care what people think about me anymore,” he continued.
