God knows you very, very well!
Whether you realize it or not, your relationship with God is very close. He knows and understands your physical makeup (verse above) as well as your physical temptations. In fact, He was tempted in all things.
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. —Hebrews 4:15
He even knows your thoughts:
. . . able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. —Hebrews 4:12
Not only does God know what you are thinking, He knows what you are going to think!
. . . your Father knows what you need, before you ask him. —Matthew 6:8
What a privilege to have a personal relationship with a God who knows our every thought, need and desire.
What do you think about Benny Hinn? God seems to be using him as a great modern-day prophet.
There are hundreds of comments by Hinn that would make a true Believer be wary. Here is just one:
Benny Hinn proclaimed to Paul Crouch on the Praise the Lord program on October 19, 1999, that people are going to be raised from the dead watching his television network. Hinn said, “I see rows of caskets lining up and I see them bringing them closer to the TV set and as people are coming closer I actually see loved ones picking up the hands of the dead and letting them touch the TV screen and people are getting raised as their hands are touching that screen . . . there’s going to be divine resurrection happening as people bring their loved ones to the TV set.” He has never recanted those remarks.
This is what the Bible says about individuals who call themselves prophets:
. . . I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him . . . But the prophet who shall speak a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he shall speak in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die. And you may say in your heart, “How shall we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?” (The Lord answered) “When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously . . . —Deuteronomy 18:18-22
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. —1 John 4:1
