Good morning holy spirit book review
Good Morning, Holy Spirit by Benny Hinn“He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” -- John 7:18
The above quote is Jesus speaking in the temple during the festival of booths. We have no record of Jesus boasting of his deeds, instead, he always pointed to the Father. When a pastor or leader is boastful of his own works, beware.
“But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through [a]which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” Galatians 6:14
Also Paul, when he wrote to the Galatians said: Don’t allow me to boast in anything, but the cross of Jesus. Again, biblical behavior leads us to boast of Jesus, not our own deeds.
I dislike the arrogance that comes through in this book. It seems that when one truly becomes immersed in the Holy Spirit, as Paul and Jesus certainly were, they become humble, and emphasize God, rather than their own achievements. They set aside human agendas and opinions for God’s agendas and opinions. If you are going to read this book, be ready reject the emotionalism, boastfulness and false teaching.
I dislike an emphasis on “hyper emotional” religion. If you are looking for something to “make you tingle all over” (a phrase used several times in this book) perhaps you are looking for an experience not a relationship.
While there are emotional and experiential aspects to religion, a fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians is self–control. If one is out of control, they are not acting under the Holy Spirits guidence.
Some people are prone to ups and downs, and to depression. If you base your religious beliefs on feelings, as soon as you have a down day you think that God has left you. God promises, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
Also, Benny Hinn describes the Trinity as being like the sun, divided into 3 elements: sun, light and heat. This is misleading. The Trinity is made up of 3 distinct persons, as described at the baptism of Jesus in Matthew 3:13-17.
You may be interested to know that Benny Hinn raised money for a private jet, and has made many false predictions. He predicted a mass ressurection of the dead in ’99, he has predicted the end of the world a couple times, the death of Fidel Castro, and the destruction of the homosexual community in the US. There are Youtube videos of these predictions, although I didn’t watch them.
So my final evaluation: Ignore Benny Hinn and his teaching. Which is what I plan to do from now on.
