On the wings of a dove

Evangelist fraudster Benny Hinn wants his flock to help him fly. In some style:

The central mission of our ministry is to use today’s cutting-edge technologies to fulfill our prophetic destiny to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15).
We are entering a season of increasingly powerful evangelism and a time of the most widespread, massive global harvest in the history of Christianity. As a result, we as a ministry made a decision recently to purchase an airplane—a significant, needed ministry tool to fulfill the vision God has given us to go to the nations of the world, declaring the Gospel to lost humanity.
Because we must be faithful stewards of the Lord, we retained one of America’s most respected aviation consulting firms to recom-
mend a plane with sufficient range to go to the places God has called us to minis-
ter. It had to be the most cost-efficient, safe, and long-range plane we could get.

Not to mention luxurious:

At recent partners conferences I have talked about the cost to secure this state-of-the-art jet aircraft, the tool we must have for declaring the Gospel to the nations in this last hour, and the miracle the Lord has provided—Dove One, an aircraft that became available just as the door of opportunity began to close on aircrafts the ministry had previously been utilizing.
And at these partners conferences, I was able to raise the first portion of the down payment, which was another miracle the Lord has provided us.
As a result, we have recently taken delivery on our Gulfstream G4SP plane, which we call Dove One. I have enclosed a beautiful photo-filled brochure to explain more about this incredible ministry tool that will increase the scope of our abilities to preach the Gospel around the globe. Now we must pay the remainder of the down payment, and I am asking the Lord Jesus to speak to 6,000 of my precious partners to sow a seed of $1,000 in the next ninety days. And I am praying, even as I write this letter, that you will be one of them!
I know that as you obey the Lord, He will open heaven wide and cause a mighty harvest of blessings to descend upon your life and all that you do!

And what would that “mighty harvest” look like? Well, assuming you chip in $1,000 or more, you’ll get:

[A] beautiful art-quality model of Dove One for your desk or mantle as a constant reminder that you are a vital part of this last-days harvest for souls. [And] your name will be placed prominently in a special area of Dove One where I study and pray during my travels.

Gee, thanks Benny. I feel blessed already.

You can “prayerfully read” the “fact-filled” brochure here. You might want to keep a close eye on your wallet while you’re reading it.
