Test Every Spirit!

Not everything you hear is true!

Contrary to popular belief, not everything you get in your Google search result is true!

Not everything your hear in church across the pulpit is true!

Not every cool idea you have should be pursued!

Not every voice of negativity in your life should be listened to!

Not every voice of positivity is good for you!  (now that just sounds weird right!)     07.13 thoughts BLOG

I’m not trying to make anyone paranoid here – there is a way of testing spirits/influences real quick and soundly!

Scripture says . . . .

1 John 4:1-6 (NKJV)

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God;

Ok, how do we do that?  Well the scripture goes on to say quite a bit . . .

. . . because 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 of God, and every spirit that does not confess that[a] Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Essentially, God is all about guarding the influences in our lives, I believe we need to be smart, you know, use our minds to guard our hearts.  Follow God’s leading from this scripture.

If you want to be quick about your discernment of influences in your life . . . just keep reading the scriptures – Proverbs is huge and is dripping in wisdom.

Let’s do it!

God is amazing!
