These lessons, taught by Pastor Benny Hinn at the Benny Hinn School of Ministry, present timeless biblical principles for moving into a deeper dimension with Almighty God. God desires an intimate, eternal relationship with you. Discover for yourself how to step into His presence, anointing, wisdom, and victory!
Pastor Benny says:
“Today’s believers are living in the most exciting time in history. These are the days in which we must discern the times with wisdom as we learn how to walk in the supernatural—moment by moment. My prayer for you is that Life in the Son will help and keep you in the center of God’s will as you move from the everyday into the extraordinary!”
Ephesians 2:8-9 tells us that we are saved by grace. Grace is a gift. The law brings a consciousness of sin, but grace brings a consciousness of love. When you trusted the Lord at salvation, He gave you that gift. Self effort is not going to get you anywhere. There is nothing you can do to earn it. It’s all by grace!
But what is it?
During this revealing lesson, Pastor Benny offers an illustration of the three options in response to someone bringing harm or killing your child: vengeance, justice, and grace. God shows grace to mankind, even though we don’t deserve it. Our sin placed His Son on the cross, but God said, “I forgive you and adopt you.” Grace is giving us the reward we do not deserve. Rather than be condemned, we are forgiven!
Pastor Benny shares:
“The gospel of works says, ‘God helps those who help themselves,’ but that idea insults the grace of God and is humanistic. When you work for salvation, you move into legalism. It is not what I do for God; it is what He does for me. Legalism keeps people in the courtroom, but grace brings a consciousness of righteousness. It takes you out of the courtroom into the family room. It is my prayer that you will see God’s grace in a new, life-changing light!”
We are told:
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Man is not justified by our good deeds:
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost” (Titus 3:5).
We are not justified by the law:
“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified” (Galatians 2:16).
The law was given to show people what sin is. Conversely, false religions teach self-justification. Your hope is built on being a good person, doing good works, or following a certain dogma.
True salvation is a free gift of God. True salvation means to refuse a self-righteous spirit. True salvation is founded on the fact that there is no remission of sin without repentance!
Can you lose your salvation? How do you “remain” in Christ? How do you hold fast to the Gospel?
Can you walk down the aisle, ask Jesus into your heart, then go live like the devil and still make heaven? Discover the keys to spiritual victory in every area of your life.
We are told:
“Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father” (1 John 2:24).
On this powerful less, Pastor Benny Hinn shares insights into salvation. What is the new birth? What it is not? Can you lose it once you have received this free gift? What does it mean, in terms of walking each day with our Lord Jesus? How do you keep from “departing from the faith,” as the apostle Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 4?
Discover for yourself what the Bible says about your salvation and how you can “continue in the Son, and in the Father.” It is possible to live in holiness and victory, and it is possible for you!
On this remarkable teaching, Pastor Benny Hinn points to two conditions that guarantee salvation, both found in Acts 20:21—“repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Is repentance something that happens in one grand moment? Is repentance ongoing? Can you walk triumphantly as a believer in today’s world. he answers are in the Scriptures, and since those answers involve life eternal, this study is crucial for all who desire a united life with the living Lord Jesus!
We are told:
“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” (1 John 5:11-12).
God desires to share His eternal life with those whose lives are united with Him. Eternal life is shared with us, but it cannot be possessed by us. Discover for yourself what the Bible says about the eternal union between God and His children.
This discovery will change your life forever!
The apostle Paul wrote:
“Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts” (2 Corinthians 1:21-22).
What is “the earnest of the Spirit?”
God longs to fellowship with us. It’s His serious intent and purpose. Therefore, He seals believers with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is both seal and earnest of our redemption. “Ernest of the Spirit” means that God has given us His pledge, His promise, His guarantee that we will have the ultimate fulfillment of His purpose in our redemption.”
Pastor Benny says:
“Almighty God has given us the Holy Spirit to say, ‘I am serious. You are Mine. I’m sealing you.’ It is like a down-payment.”
The key to receiving God’s guarantee is forgiveness and a heart that seeks Him. The evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit is the power and presence of God!
Why does God chasten believers? How can we avoid His chastisement?
We are given insight to these questions in the apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Corinth:
“For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world” (1 Corinthians 11:31-32).
Pastor Benny teaches:
“Salvation is a free gift, but it will cost you everything. It costs you nothing to accept the Lord Jesus into your heart, but once you accept Him, you are instructed to carry your cross and follow Him.”
We must judge ourselves first and remain faithful to God. If we judge ourselves, then we won’t be judged. Spiritual death, however, comes as a result of a believer’s refusal to be corrected.
God will give a season to repent; if not, then He will judge us. We can win the victory, but obedience and dwelling in the presence of Jesus is our key to victory!
We are told:
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8).
Salvation is a free gift! Forgiveness is free! Life eternal is free! However, we cannot forget the fact that discipleship is very expensive. It will cost your life, yet those who do not carry their cross and follow Him daily cannot be His disciples.
Denying Him and living for self cause terrible harm to us and our relationship with God. Denying Him brings apostasy and falling away. If we abide not in the Lord, we will be cast forth and burned. God will not force us to be saved or stay saved—it is our choice.
Each of us has the personal responsibility to know where we are in relation to God:
“Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12).
The secret to keep ourselves from denying Him and falling from Him comes through seeking Him continuously, knowing Him intimately, staying in His presence, and continuing in the faith!
How do you live a life in Christ? More pointedly, how do you exist in a sinful world, yet free from sin? Is it possible?
If so, what is the key? James 4:4 asks this question:
“Know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?”
What does friendship with the world means in terms of your relationship with God? What does it mean to choose between the Lordship of Jesus Christ or the dominion of sin? Since sin will not go away by itself, what must we do to rid ourselves of it? And what are the three different wills of God?
In the lesson, Pastor Benny Hinn deals with one of the most important matters you will face in your entire lifetime!
We are told:
‘Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils’ (1 Corinthians 10:21).
We serve a jealous God. It is time we learn the wisdom of the ages, for through history men and women have tried to mix righteousness and unrighteousness. This was Israel’s mistake, time after time. It is still the mistake too many believers make today.
Now it is time to take up the banner of the cross with a heart that is pure and undefiled! If you have questions about your walk with God or your eternal destiny, this life-changing lesson with Pastor Benny offers step-by-step principles for how to discern God’s will in your life and the ways you can win victory in life.
You can have dominion over sin!
