Last week I was in my hotel room and as I sat there semi-conscious watching a documentary on Beowulf a commercial came on that offered something that seemed too good to be true. Miracle water. All you had to do was to send in for this free water that would be sent to you for free and after drinking it you would be healed of any disease; you would come into great wealth and you would find true happiness. All of this because Jesus wanted you to have a wonderful fulfilled life. There were even testimonials from people whom after drinking the water had been healed of cancer or come into tens of thousands of dollars. Sound too good to be true? But is this more astounding than a man who is paralyzed in his legs instantaneously being brought to full health. All he needed was faith. So why do we make fun of people like Benny Hinn? What do we learn about Jesus from healings in the book of Acts and what do we learn about Bible prophecy?
