past Sunday I watched the very interesting Benny Hinn on television.
Actually, I not only watched him but I watched his audience for a full
two hours. During this show Benny Hinn criticized other Christian
ministers who were not teaching in the same way as himself and I am
positive he would dismiss this ministry completely. His audience
was very receptive to his message and also the healing work that he
performed. Benny used the name Satan almost as much as he used the
name Jesus ... it was a fascinating program filled with on one hand, a
declaration of God's love and on the other hand how powerful Satan is.
Benny at one point stated that Satan
told him that he, Satan, would give him anything he wanted in the world
if he would give up his ministry .......... now those who understand
only a literal interpretation of the Bible know that Satan offered the
same to Jesus ... so in effect, Benny was stating that his ministry was
equal to that of Jesus.
Benny went on to say that Satan has appeared to him many times. He
told the audience he even called his wife to witness one appearance.
As I watched the faces of his
audience, I felt a great wave of compassion sweep through me ... right
to my heart. The men and women in this audience were coming to
Benny for help ... for a greater understanding of God ... a greater
connection with the Infinite ... and all they were getting was more
fear-based judgment and a false God called Satan. Believe
me, Satan is not a man ... a BIG EVIL MAN anymore than God is the BIG
GUY IN THE SKY ... these childish fairytales must end in our minds or so
many of us will continue to allow our minds to be filled with fear.
And of course, I believe that Benny Hinn sees
Satan ... because I know the Truth ... and the Truth is .. "it is
done unto you as you believe." But ... why would we
want to believe so strongly in evil that our belief manifests in the
appearance of a Satan? Jesus stated, "get thee behind me
Satan." Now, if Satan was something other than a false
idea in our mind ... would Jesus have said get thee behind me ... I
don't think so. I believe that ministers and priests have used
satans and devils to hold people in fear ... fear of making their own
decisions. This fear stops so many people from having a truly
beneficial and loving relationship with God. Fear holds people in
bondage to the priests, the ministers and the churches ... but Spirit is
free ... and the spirit of man/woman is God ... and this freedom will be
expressed ... and Benny Hinn and the rest of those who use fear to
manipulate people will see this soon enough.
Dr. Joseph Murphy has done a
tremendous work in bringing to light the truth that our subconscious
mind will automatically demonstrate for us what we give it ... and as
long as we give it images and thoughts of what we don't want .. what we
don't have ... or an over emphasis in our thoughts of evil .. our
subconscious will validate this to us. It is as simple as "it
is done unto you as you believe." Benny Hinn's words flow
from his thoughts and his beliefs ... and those who are attracted to his
work share much of his thoughts and beliefs or they would not be
attracted to him ... however, this attraction can diminish quickly with
Fear is the
antithesis of Faith ... and as scripture states, "perfect love
casts out fear." Both our fear and our faith will manifest in
our experiences. Benny Hinn is proof of this ... his fear sees a
Satan and his faith performs healings ... imagine how powerful his
healing work would be without the fear ... without the thoughts of God
and something else (Satan) filling his consciousness and without the
necessity to fill his audiences with fear and intimidation. Each
of us must look at our lives ... and we must be honest about the level
of fear that we allow to be resident in our consciousness. If we
are praying or doing treatment work and nothing is happening ... then
something is amiss in our consciousness ... that something is fear ...
and fear is a false god ... for it separates us from our Good and from
So It Is!
