First Prophetic Date for 2003 - FAILED
On Monday, March 3rd, 2003, a mighty change in the anointing of the Holy Spirit in the church was prophesied to occur:
|[Hinn] "Ladies and Gentlemen, I, I, I'm feeling something in the Holy Ghost and I am going to say something right now, and as I am speaking you just keep calling, those who have been healed and saved, please. Steve, do you realize what's happening tonight."[Steve Brock] "Absolutely Pastor."|
[Hinn] "Stephen, there is a change - coming. I feel the power of God so strong telling you this. There is a change coming, not only to this ministry but to the, to the church. Do you feel what I am feeling?"
[Steve Brock] "It's an explosion. The presence of God is here."
[Hinn] "Let me just tell you something. As I am talking to you I feel numbness on my body."
[Steve Brock] "As I am talking to you I can hardly stand up."
[Hinn] "Then receive it my brother. Receive the - -. [Brock is slain in the Spirit]
Somebody pick him up, will you. Stephen, I am feeling, I am feeling numbness all over my body. As you were reading those praise reports."
... [comments by Suzanne Hinn deleted]
[Hinn] "Listen, listen. I know whether anybody had a vision or not, I am hearing it from the Lord. I am hearing it from the Lord right this minute, as I am standing here. I am hearing from the Holy Spirit that a change is coming. A mighty change - Yes Lord thank you. Yes Lord thank you. I am just hearing the Lord tell me when."
[Steve Brock] "Praise God!"
[Hinn] "I am telling you!"
[Steve Brock] "When?"
[Hinn] "March 3rd. I just heard March 3rd in my ears. What's March 3rd? What day is that? We don't know. I don't know what March 3rd what day that, that would, would be. I am not sure where I would be. I don't know what crusade or service or maybe I am not anywhere, but I am, I am hearing the Lord say that to me. Lift your hands and thank Him ladies and gentlemen. Lift your hands and thank Him ladies and gentlemen. God is sending a mighty - breath, a fresh wind upon - it's a Monday - a fresh wind upon your life."
— Benny Hinn, December 29th, 2002.
Interestingly enough, March 3rd was also being promoted by, and to, non-Christians, as a day of change:
At 3March2003.com we believe that collective thought can make dramatic global changes that will benefit all of our futures. ...
Whatever our spiritual, religious or cultural beliefs, we all realise that the world situation has to change towards a more positive future for us all.
On 03/03/03 at 3:33am and 3:33pm people across the globe will join together in three minutes of focused positive thought to bring about a better world for us all. We hope that you will join us for just three minutes on the day and make this world a better place.
We believe that when enough people think positive, peaceful and healing thoughts, the global effects become a reality, and that we all seek true world peace regardless of our differences.

To suggest that March 3rd 2003 was an important day, because of the date being the number 3 tripled (03/03/03), and that 3 minutes of prayer at 3:33 would be particularly effective, was nothing but superstition, which the people of God should know to be totally useless, and something they should have no part in:
2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2 Cor 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
2 Cor 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2 Cor 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, ...
Benny Hinn's Ecumenical Gospel
Benny Hinn ministries took in over $100,000,000 last year alone. Listen to what Hinn said concerning Pope John Paul II after his death,
“Pope John Paul II pointed millions to Jesus Christ when he was Pope. And I believe we're in for the greatest move of the Spirit of God on this planet."
—BENNY HINN (Benny Hinn: The Impact of the Pope's Death, By Chris Mitchell, Middle East Bureau Chief, CBN.com).
What? The Pope pointing people to Jesus? Hinn is a false prophet! Pope John Paul II pointed billions of people to MARY!!!Pope John Paul II pointed people to himself, to the Catholic priests, to the Seven sacraments, to religion, to Mary; BUT, not to Jesus Christ. You cannot point people to Jesus Christ while simultaneously teaching the traditions of men. John 4:24 plainly teaches that God must be worshipped in TRUTH, not the traditions of men. What a deception!!! This is why Christ said in Mark 7:7...
"Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."
Deceptively, Benny Hinn presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ on his website. Benny Hinn also teaches that there are NINE members to the Godhead. Hinn is very deceptive. If you look at Benny Hinn's website, you might be totally convinced that he's a born again Christian. Yet, Hinn's life contradicts his statements. If a famous preacher claimed to believe in freedom and America; but then you find out that he was a member of the Communist Party at the SAME time, what would you think? That man is Martin Luther King Jr. Would you believe his words about freedom? No! Likewise, Benny Hinn presents the Gospel on his website; but, then praises the Pope, recognizes Our Lady of Fatima (Mary) as legitimate, partakes of transubstantiation (Catholic holy communion), and promotes Catholicism—The biggest cult on earth!
Second Prophetic Date for 2003 - FAILED
On or about April 15th, 2003 (3 1/2 months after Dec. 29th, 2002), Benny Hinn prophesied that a great event involving Israel will occur, to be followed by a mighty move of God in the church:
| Watch the clip (Windows Media)"Yes. The glory of God is going to visit His mighty church. Yes Lord. Three and a half months from now a great event is going to take place in the world, followed by a mighty move of God in the church. Three and a half months from now something is going to happen in this world: headline news, you'll know it. I will not tell you what I see. You'll just know it, and something mighty will follow in the Spirit. God, the Holy Ghost, is saying to His church - Watch Israel. Watch my people Israel. You will know as you read the scriptures and watch Israel. 'For the days are short' says the Lord. 'The days ahead are evil' says the Lord, 'but I have reserved a place for my people, a place of safety, a place of protection.'"|
