Kenneth Hagin Said What?

November 6, 2011

“Kenyon’s influence on my ministry has been minute. Only his teachings on the name of Jesus have much to do with my theology. I absolutely deny any metaphysical influences from Kenyon. I teach not Christian Science, but Christian sense.” – Kenneth Hagin. (Quoted by Hank Hanegraaff, Counterfeit Revival, 1997 citing Vinson Synan, “The Faith Of Kenneth Hagin”, Charisma & Christian Faith, 15:11, June,
1990, pg 68.)

“Why did He need to be begotten or born? Because He became like we were – separated from God. Because He tasted spiritual death for every man. And His spirit and inner men went to hell in my place. Can’t you see that? Physical death wouldn’t remove your sins. He’s tasted death for every man. He’s talking about tasting spiritual death. Jesus is the first person that was ever born again. Why did His spirit need to be born again? Because it was estranged from God.” – Kenneth Hagin, How Jesus obtained His Name, Kenneth Hagin Ministries, Audio Tape #44-H01.

“You are as much the incarnation of God as Jesus Christ was… the believer is as much an incarnation as was Jesus of Nazareth.” – Kenneth Hagin, Word Of Faith, December, 1980, pg 14.

“Every man who has been born again is an incarnation and Christianity is a miracle. The believer is as much an incarnation as was Jesus of Nazareth.” Kenneth Hagin, The Incarnation, The Word of Faith 13, December, 1980.

“[Man] was created on terms of equality with God, and he could stand in God’s presence without any consciousness of inferiority… God made us as much like Himself as possible… He made us the same class of being that He is Himself… Man lived in the realm of God. He lived on terms equal with God… [The] believer is called Christ… That’s who we are; we’re Christ.” – Kenneth Hagin, Zoe: The God-Kind of Life, 1989. pg 35-36, 41.

___________________________

“Man is a spirit who possesses a soul and lives in a body… He is in the same class with God. …We know that God is a Spirit. And yet [He] took upon Himself a man’s body… when God took upon Himself human form, He was no less God than when He didn’t have a body. Man, at physical death, leaves his as he was when he had his body.” – Kenneth Hagin, Man of Three Dimensions, Tulsa: Faith Library, 1973.

“It seems strange that the Church has majored in “manner of life” or “behavior”, rather than eternal life, which determines in a very large way the manner of life. Receiving eternal life is the most miraculous incident in life. Often we call it conversion or the new birth. Some call it “getting religion,” but that’s not what it is really. It is, in reality, God imparting His very Nature, substance, and being to our human spirits.” – Kenneth Hagin, The God Kind of Life, Tulsa: Faith Library, 1981, pg 1-2, 9.

“God’s method of physical healing is spiritual. It is not mental as Christian Science, Unity and other metaphysical teachers claim. Neither is it physical as the medical world teaches. When man heals, he must do it either through the mind or through the physical body. When God heals He heals through the human spirit,
Life’s greatest forces are spiritual forces. . . . Love and hate, faith and fear, joy and peace, are all of the spirit.” – Kenneth Hagin, Spirit, Soul, & Body; Part Three: God Heals through the Spirit of Man,” Word of Faith, December, 1977, pg 5.

___________________________

“Here is a picture of Christ in awful combat with the hosts of darkness. It gives us a glimpse of the tremendous victory He won before He rose from the dead. The margin of King James reads, “He put off from Himself the
principalities and the powers.” It is quite obvious and evident that whole demon hosts, when they had Jesus within their power intended to swamp Him, to overwhelm Him, and to hold Him in fearful bondage. But the cry came forth from the throne of God that Jesus had met the demands of Justice, that that man’s
redemption was a fact. And when that cry reached the dark regions, Jesus arose and threw back the host of demons and met Satan in awful combat. God has made this investment for He has made this deposit on which the church has a right to draw for. Oh that our eyes would open, that our souls would dare to rise in the
realm of the omnipotent where that name would mean to us all that God the Father intended it to mean! In one sense, this is practically unexplored table land in Christian experience.” – Kenneth Hagin, The Name Of Jesus: The More Excellent Name, The Word of Faith, April, 1976, pg 4-6.

___________________________

“What does identification mean? It means our complete union with Him in His Substitutionary Sacrifice. This gives us the key which unlocks the great teachings of identification. Christ became one with us in sin that we might become one with Him in righteousness. He became as we were to the end that we might become as He is now. He died to make us live. He became weak to make us strong. He suffered shame to give us glory. He went to hell to take us to heaven. He was condemned to justify us. He was made sick that healing might be ours.” – Kenneth Hagin, The Resurrection! What it Gives Us…, The Word Of Faith, April, 1977, pg 5.

“Of course, Jesus stands in a class by Himself, personally, and as Deity. But when it comes to ministry, Jesus does not stand in a class by Himself…Even though Jesus was the Son of God, and divine blood flowed through His veins, yet He was ministering on earth as a human being—a prophet anointed with the Holy Spirit.” – Kenneth Hagin, Hear and Be Healed. Tulsa; Faith Library Publications, 1987, pg 8.

___________________________

“Jesus id not minister with His divine attributes while He was on earth. He ministered as a man anointed by the Holy Spirit. ….The Bible says that Jesus voluntarily laid aside His power and glory as the Son of God (Phil 2:6-8) and ministered as a man filled and anointed with the Holy Spirit—the same way we are to minister.” – Kenneth Hagin, Jr. God’s Irresistible Word, Tulsa; Faith Library Publications, 1989, pg 36.

“The Lord said to me, “If you give a message for an individual, a church, or a pastor, and they don’t accept it, you will not be responsible.  They will be responsible.  There will be ministers who don’t accept it and will fall dead in the pulpit. I say this with reluctance, but this actually happened in one place where I preached.  Two weeks from the day that I closed that meeting, the pastor fell dead in the pulpit… Why?  Because he didn’t accept the message that God gave me to give him from the Holy Spirit.” – Kenneth Hagin, I Believe in Visions, 115.

“There are two things to notice about the God kind of faith.  First, a man believes with his heart.  Second, he believes with his words.  It isn’t enough just to believe in your heart.  In order to get God to work for you, you must believe with your words also.  Jesus said, “Whosoever shall say … and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith” (Mark 11:23).  This is the unalterable law of faith.” – Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Hagin Faith Lesson No. 21 – The God Kind of Faith, http://hopefaithprayer.com/faith/kenneth-hagin-faith-lesson-no-21-the-god-kind-of-faith/, (Accessed 07/11/11).

“The God kind of faith is the kind of faith in which a man believes with his heart and says with his mouth that which he believes in his heart, and it comes to pass.

Jesus showed that He had that kind of faith, for He believed that what He said would come to pass.  He said to the tree, “No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever.”

This is the kind of faith that spoke the world into existence… How did He do it?  God believed that what He said would come to pass.  He spoke the word and there was an earth. He spoke into existence the vegetable kingdom.  He spoke into existence the animal kingdom.  He spoke into existence the heavens as well as the earth, the moon, the sun, the stars and the universe.  He said it and it was so.  That is the God kind of faith.  He believed what He said would come to pass and it did.” – Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Hagin Faith Lesson No. 21 – The God Kind of Faith, http://hopefaithprayer.com/faith/kenneth-hagin-faith-lesson-no-21-the-god-kind-of-faith/, (Accessed 07/11/11).

“A measure of faith is dealt to the sinner through hearing the Word.  Then he uses it to create the reality of salvation in his own life.” – Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Hagin Faith Lesson No. 21 – The God Kind of Faith, http://hopefaithprayer.com/faith/kenneth-hagin-faith-lesson-no-21-the-god-kind-of-faith/, (Accessed 07/11/11).

“Defeat and failure do not belong to the child of God.  God never made a failure.  God made us new creatures.  We are not born of the will of the flesh or the will of man, but of the will of God.  We are created in Christ Jesus.  Failures are man-made.  They are made by wrong believing and wrong thinking.  I John 4:4 says, “… Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”  Learn to trust the Greater One that is in you.  He is mightier than anything in the world.” – Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Hagin Faith Lesson No. 21 – The God Kind of Faith, http://hopefaithprayer.com/faith/kenneth-hagin-faith-lesson-no-21-the-god-kind-of-faith/, (Accessed 07/11/11).

“God created the universe with words.  Words filled with faith are the most powerful things in all the world.

The key to the God kind of faith is believing with the heart and confessing with the mouth.  Our lips can make us millionaires or keep us paupers.  Our lips can make us victors or keep us captives.  We can fill our words with faith or we can fill our words with doubt.  We can fill our words with love that will melt the coldest heart, or we can fill our words with hate and poison.  We can fill our words with love that will help the discouraged and broken-hearted, with faith that will stir heaven.  We can make our words breathe the very atmosphere of heaven.

Our faith will never rise above the words of our lips.  Jesus told the woman with the issue of blood that her faith had made her whole.  Thoughts may come and they may persist in staying.  But if we refuse to put those thoughts into words, they die unborn.  Cultivate the habit of thinking big things.  Learn to use words that will react upon your own spirit.  Faith’s confessions create realities.  Realization follows the confession.  Confession precedes possession.” – Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Hagin Faith Lesson No. 21 – The God Kind of Faith, http://hopefaithprayer.com/faith/kenneth-hagin-faith-lesson-no-21-the-god-kind-of-faith/, (Accessed 07/11/11).

  3. Thank you for the word that comes at an appropriate time to enhance
    our lives with our heavenly father in Jesus name


  4. waoooo just word inspired truth


  5. Heretic, it is called false teaching. We are not Christ, we are not the incarnation of God, we are children of God. Jesus was not a child of God. God does not kill someone for not accepting a word you give them. God did not use faith to create, He used HIs authority and power, Jesus while as man walked in faith, faith in the Father. Faith is not a power in of its self, it is whom you put your faith in that causes something to happen. I can have faith in my words, but what are my words? Faith has to be in something or someone. I have faith that in the chair i sit in, that it will hold me up, but that kind of faith will not move the chair. Yet if i put faith in God, He will move the mountains out of my life. not me, He will hold me up, He will save me as i put faith in His ability, not in my words.


    • Amen! This is the false teaching of which Jesus spoke. This is Anti-Christian doctrine. However, it sounds so good to the unlearned.
