Test the Spirits
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error. When I first received God's calling to preach the Gospel, I sincerely wondered what difference I can make to the already overcrowded market of gospel ministers. However God made it clear to me that He wanted me to do His work and complained bitterly about His Pastors and referred me to Jeremiah 12:10-11. There are preachers everywhere but not all has the Spirit of God, many are in it for their stomach and therefore displays the spirit of anti-Christ. To discern the right Spirit, you need to see their works and you also need the Spirit of discernment. Verse 4 of the above scripture says that you have overcome because greater is he that is you than the devil and his cohorts in the world, so that greater Spirit in you will lead you, so that you cannot be misled or be afraid. Jesus by His indwelling Spirit in you will lead you to greater heights and greater accomplishments IJN. Remember also that the spirit of anti-Christ will give you all the excuses you need not to fellowship with others this Sunday morning, you must resist him with all your strength and God will help you. Heb 10:35 ? Heb 10:39 Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. For, "Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him." But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls. Enjoy your fellowship with Jesus today. Every blessings.
