Benny Hinn: But here’s first what I see for TBN. You’re going to have people raised from the dead watching this network. You’re going to have people raised from the dead watching TBN. Programs – just plain programs – programs that haven’t done much when it comes to supernatural manifestations – teaching programs. It’s not going to be a Benny Hinn saying, “Stretch your hands.” It’s going to be your average teaching program, your normal Christian program, that’s blessing the church. There’s going to be such power on these programs people will be raised from the dead worldwide. I’m telling you, I see this in the Spirit. It’s going to be so awesome – Jesus I give you praise for this – that people around the world – maybe not so much in America – people around the world who will lose loved ones, will say to undertakers “Not yet. I want to take my dead loved one and place him in front of that TV set for 24 hours.”
Paul Crouch: Benny Hinn! Jesus!
Benny Hinn: I’m telling you. People will be – people – I’m telling you, I feel the anointing talking here. People are going to be canceling funeral services and bringing their dead in their caskets, placing them – my God! I feel the anointing here – placing them before a television set, waiting for God’s power to come through and touch them. And it’s going to happen time and time – so much it’s going to spread. You’re going to hear it from Kenya to Mexico to Europe to South America, where people will be raised from the – so much so that the word will spread that if some dead person be put in front of this TV screen, they will be raised from the dead and they will be by the thousands. You wait. Now the Lord just told me – and I don’t know whether this is true or not – as I’m saying this, the Lord said He gave you that word many, many years ago.
Paul Crouch: I have said that, yes.
Benny Hinn: I don’t remember you saying that to me ever.
Paul Crouch: No, I didn’t.
Benny Hinn: [He said] ‘I’ve told him this already.’
Paul Crouch: Yeah, the Lord spoke that to me in the very beginning of TBN and I didn’t really –
Jan Crouch: And I had a dream.
Benny Hinn: You had a dream.
Paul Crouch: Yeah, tell him about that little –
Jan Crouch: That’s just a dream – people were being raised from the dead. Years ago.
Paul Crouch: It’s on tape. I said the day is coming –
Benny Hinn: I see quite something amazing. I see rows of caskets lining up in front of this TV set and I see them bringing them closer to the TV set and as people are coming closer I see actually loved ones picking up the hands of the dead and letting them touch the screen and people are getting raised as their hands are touching that screen.
…With this program – I’m not talking about my program – I’m talking programs, plain programs aired – the glory of God will be so on TBN that there’s going to be divine resurrection happening as people bring their loved ones to the TV set.
Paul Crouch: Just because it’s His time.
Benny Hinn: It’s His time. Now here’s something else I see. Jesus, I give You praise for this, I give You praise for this, I give You praise for this – the day will come, Paul – and I pray you’ll be here. I pray the Lord will allow you to be here and see it. I mean, physically be here. You’re in your 60s now. But the day is going to come when the gifts of the Holy Spirit will so intensify in the church that young children will be watching TBN and signs and wonders will begin to take place through them. Impartations of the Spirit will come to them. A little child that knows nothing about the gifts, knows nothing about the anointing, knows nothing about the power of God, will be imbued with power from on high as a child, as that TV set comes on, and will go out like fire torches to their schools and their playgrounds and their families. I see children, I see children, what looks like fire in their lips spreading – but I see these kids touching the TV set, receiving it, and going out and spreading it. And it’s going to happen with children in the U.S., Canada, all over the world. And I do see people being raised from the dead here, but I see masses of them overseas.
