Head of Kenneth Hagin Ministries and RHEMA Bible Training Center.
We (the church) are Christ. (Kenneth Hagin, As Christ is -- So are we, Tape #44H06)
Christ's physical death on the cross was not enough to save us. (Kenneth Hagin, How Jesus obtained His Name, Tape 44H01)
Jesus tasted spiritual death. (Kenneth Hagin, How Jesus obtained His Name, Tape 44H01)
The Christian "is as much an incarnation as was Jesus of Nazareth." (Kenneth Hagin, "The Incarnation," THE WORD OF FAITH (Dec. 1980), 14.)
"The 22nd Psalm gives a graphic picture of the crucifixion of Jesus-more vivid than that of John, Matthew or Mark who witnessed it. He utters the strange words "But thou are holy." What does that mean? He is becoming sin. . . . His parched lips cry, "I am a worm and no man." He is spiritually dead-the worm. Jesus died of a ruptured heart. When it happened, blood from all parts of His body poured through the rent into the sack which holds the heart. As the body cooled, the red corpuscles coagulated and rose to the top, the white serum settled to the bottom. When that Roman spear pierced the sack, water poured out first, then the coagulated blood oozed out, rolling down his side onto the ground. John bore witness of it." (Kenneth Hagin, "Christ our Substitute", The Word of Faith [March 1975]), pp. 1,4,5,7)
"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], p.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], pp. 4-6)
"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], p.5)
"The fact that there is enmity between Satan and the woman is seen through woman's history. . . . She has been bought and sold as common chattel. Only where Christianity has reached the heart of the country has woman been elevated above the brute creation. Woman's seed is Christ. Christ was hunted from His babyhood by Satan's seed until finally He was nailed to the cross. From the resurrection of Jesus until this day, the church has been the subject of the bitterest persecution and enmity of the world. "and it ... shall bruise thy head" (the head of Satan). In Oriental languages "bruising the head" means breaking the lordship of a ruler. "The heel" is the Church in its earth walk. . . .The long ages of persecution of the Church by the seed of Satan are today merely a matter of history." (Kenneth Hagin, "Incarnation," Word of Faith [December 1978], p. 4)
"Here in Genesis, God refused to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah until He had talked it over with Abraham, His blood covenant friend. Abraham's prayer is one of the most suggestive and illuminating prayers of the Old Testament. Abraham was taking his in the covenant. Abraham had, through the covenant, received rights and privileges which we very little understand. The covenant Abraham had just solemnized with Jehovah gave him a legal standing with God.... we hear him speaking so plainly... "Shall not the judge of all the earth do right?" All through the Old Testament we find men who understood and took their place in the covenant. Joshua could open the Jordan. He could command the sun, moon and stars to stand still in the heavens. Elijah could bring fire out of heaven to consume the altar as well as the sacrifice. David's mighty men were utterly shielded from death in time of war as long as they remembered the covenant." (Kenneth Hagin, Plead Your Case [Tulsa: Faith Library, 1979]), pp. 4-9; cf. pp. 23-32)
"In John 1:4 we get the first intimation of what this life will do for us: "In him was life; and the life was the light of men."" There are four different Greek words translated "life" in the New Testament. First, there is zoe. Then there is psuche. That means natural or human life. Bios means manner of life. And anastrophee means confused behavior. 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], pp. 1-2, 9)
"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], no page)
"[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. pp. 35-36, 41)
"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).
"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" Dec. 1980, p. 14)
"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)
"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 (December 1980), p. 14)
Despite solid evidence to the contrary, Hagin insists: "Kenyon's influence on my ministry has been minute. Only his teachings on the name of Jesus have mushc to do with my theology. I absolutely deny any metaphysical influences from Kenyon. I teach not Christian Science, but Christian sense." (Hank Hanegraaff, Counterfeit Revival, 1997 citing Vinson Synan, "The Faith Of Kenneth Hagin", Charisma & Christian Faith, 15:11 (June 1990), 68)
Animal sounds: Redhead "mooing" at Kenneth Hagan meeting.
Spiritual Drunkenness: See where the Rodney Howard-Browne and Kenneth Copeland spiritual drunkeness came from. "Dad" Kenneth Hagan explains, defends and demonstrates it! Listen for his hissing, sticking out his tongue like a serpent and his claim that the Apostles on Pentecost were actually acting like drunks!
Slaying in the Spirit: Kenneth Hagan passed it down to a whole generation!
