PROVING THE SPIRITS

1 Thessalonians 5:21 “ Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

1 John 4:1 “BELOVED, DO not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world.”

We are going to see a lot of things that are not Biblical or from God, but have the appearance of being so. There will be those who will prophesy, but there is no Biblical basis to the prophecy. There will be those that will ‘see a vision from God’, but there is no Biblical basis to that vision. The devil is working overtime in his attempts to deceive the elect because he knows that his time is short.

The only way to effectively determine what is and what isn’t from God is to know the Word of God and to know the promises of God. Some feel that this ability or need to discern is only for pastors or evangelists, but it’s for every believer. Don’t be like other people that depend solely on the preacher to do their learning for them. I did that for years and found out that the preachers didn’t know anything either! Paul said in 2 Timothy that we are to study to show ourselves approved. Again, this is directed towards all believers, not just preachers. 2 Corinthians 2:11 “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices”. How are we Not ignorant of his devices? By knowing the Word of God! When you have somebody prophesy over you or you get a vision, how can you verify if it’s truly from God? Ask this question, ‘Does it line up with the Word of God?’. Are you looking for a mate and you ‘heard from God’ that you are supposed to marry so-and-so, but that person is already married. Guess what, that wasn’t from God no matter how much you want it to be! That ‘word’ doesn’t line up with the Word. When we know how God deals in the Bible and we are given a ‘word’ or a vision that is contrary to that, we know that that ‘word’ or vision was NOT Holy Ghost inspired. God will not tell you something or give you a vision of something that is against His Word.
