Now a video is making the rounds where Benny Hinn is railing against Joel Osteen's comment on Larry King. To be fair, he rails against Oprah too. I get that. His argument is so livid and it seems to be over the top. If you want to hear him go on about all this you can watch the video:
There is something about all this that sounds strange to my ears. If Jesus were standing in the place of Benny Hinn would he rail publicly against Joel Osteen like this? Or would he follow his own admonitions of Matthew 18:
15 “If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother. 16 “But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES EVERY FACT MAY BE CONFIRMED. 17 “If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. 18 “Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.If you are wondering if Benny Hinn privately went to Osteen about this first, don't wait for the answer. It is NO without any doubt. The day this video was posted was the same day Benny Hinn received legal notice of his wife filing for divorce. Feb 18, 2010.
His public outrage is driven by his private pain. His offended heart. She had been out of the house for a while. According to the news release, since the end of January.
This is why when this was all announced I posted that when this happens in a ministry, he or she must step aside to heal and resolve whatever the issues are. Time needs to be invoked for healing. I suggested that Benny Hinn should stop all campaigns now. He will become a negative 1 Corinthians 13 example.
Pain causes horrible reactions in people. Benny Hinn is people. He must stop until he heals.
The Hubris the devil uses is "Your ministry is too important for you to step back. People are dependent on you. There is too much to lose. You won't lose anyone of your followers. God is counting on you."
That is the voice of satan.
Benny Hinn must stop now. I wish I could get this message to him. It's essential before he wounds the whole body of Christ in The USA.
