THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A DANIEL FAST

Quite often when I hear of prophets and pastors calling for a fast, they give the people a range of fasting options, like the total abstention from food and drink (except water) or what is often called “the Daniel fast.” The Daniel fast is usually defined as eating only vegetables and drinking liquids.

The basis for the Daniel fast is found in the Old Testament Bible book of Daniel, chapter 1, verses 8-16.

Daniel was among the captives taken from Jerusalem to Babylon. The king of Babylon, Belshazzar, had Daniel and three other young men from the tribe of Judah put into a three-year training program so that they might serve in the king’s court.  As part of the program, the king provided the initiates with his edible delicacies, including his wine. Daniel objected to eating and drinking these things because these foods were ritually unclean according to Jewish dietary laws. Instead of eating and drinking the king’s ritually unclean delicacies, Daniel chose to limit his [...]

DON’T LISTEN TO ANYONE TEACHING ABOUT SPEAKING IN TONGUES WHO DOESN’T SPEAK IN TONGUES THEMSELVES!

Those, who do not believe in speaking in tongues, say it was only a one-time event for the believers at that time in the Bible. What they are actually saying is, that it doesn’t exist nowadays anymore! Many, who oppose speaking in tongues, link it to the Charismatic Christians who promote speaking in tongues, people they think are somewhat flaky. They often show their disgust for it by calling the speaking in tongues demonic or a form of chanting, and they vehemently forbid anybody from practicing it.

But Jesus promised, that those who believe in Him will speak in new tongues when He commanded His disciples to: 

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; THEY WILL SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES; they will take up [...]

LIES IN THE CHURCH

Even Benny Hinn now reluctantly admits that he has taken the preaching of the prosperity gospel to the extreme, when he said:

“We get attacked for preaching prosperity, well it’s in the Bible, but I think some have gone to the extreme with it sadly, and it’s not God’s word what is taught, and I think I’m as guilty as others.”

Benny Hinn now realizes that some of the things he learned from preachers, when he was growing up, aren’t biblical and the popular interpretation of the prosperity gospel — the teaching that believers have a right to the blessings of health and wealth and that they can obtain these blessings through positive confessions of faith, and the “sowing of seeds” through the faithful payments of tithes and offerings — is one of those things.

Yes, Benny Hinn, you deceived millions of Christians all over the world and you took advantage of many of them!

The Bible teaches that we are free from the guilt and bondage of the Old [...]
