Steve Strang writes on Chrismanews.com about televangelist Benny Hinn remarrying his ex-wife at the Holyland Experience theme park on March 31:
Evangelist Benny Hinn and his ex-wife Suzanne were remarried on Sunday after being divorced since 2011.
The Hinns’ divorce was widely reported and represented the latest of several high-profile Christian leaders who have recently divorced. Pastor Jack Hayford, Suzanne's father Roy Harthern and evangelist Reinhard Bonnke repeatedly referred to the significance of the Hinns' remarriage, calling it miraculous.
"This is too wonderful," Bonnke told the crowd, noting that this miracle of remarriage was even greater than the miracle of any marriage. "I see a river of the balm of Gilead flowing to millions of broken marriages." He said he believes those marriages will be restored as a result.
"It's a miracle of God's grace," said Hayford, who officiated, along with Bonnke and Harthern. Approximately 1,000 well-wishers watched the ceremony at the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Fla.
"We're experiencing the miracle of restoration,” said Harthern, who performed the first ceremony. “I'm one delighted Papa to stand here a second time. This time it's going to work!"
The crowd responded to this with a chorus of "amens."
Many notable Christian leaders flew in for the event, including several from overseas—Morris Cerullo, Marilyn Hickey, Marcus and Joni Lamb, Cindy Jacobs and Riva Tims. But they did not participate. Instead all eyes were on the bride and groom in a rather traditional ceremony, mixed with plenty of praise and worship, that lasted two hours. The children and their spouses stood with their parents as attendants.
Benny Hinn said nothing until the end when he prayed over Suzanne as the visiting Christian leaders crowded around. Hinn then told some personal stories including how his oldest grandson, Theo Koulianos, asked him at Thanksgiving about a year and a half ago (when Theo was 6) when his grandfather was getting back together with "Nana." He told his grandfather he was praying that Jesus would get his grandparents back together.
"God answered that little boy’s prayer," Hinn said as the crowd cheered.
