Discernment 1

1 John 4:1-2 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.

We must “test” the spirit to see whether it is of God or not. To believe in God, we require a good foundation, i.e. being rooted and grounded in the Word. Without a good foundation, a Christian’s life can be a ruin and is definitely not a good testimony. God is not a fake and God is not fanatical. Before God sent Jesus, He planned it even before the foundation of the world. God is a planner. He plans things ahead of time. God is also systematic. That is why there are prophecies. God does things in a consistent way that you can look ahead and tell what He is going to do next. That is why the birth of Jesus was prophesied. Whatever purpose God has, He will fulfill it. As Christians, we must reflect God’s character. If God tells you to start a business, He will do it with a solid foundation, solid pillars, finances and strategies. God will not tell you to start a business by luck or guess work and calls it faith! We must test the Spirit: is it a spirit of Light?

A lot of Christians work by “inspirations”, yet the demons can also inspire a person. We should not be hasty or impulsive to quickly determine that something is of God. We should test the spirits. Jesus came in the form of a human being, not as the “wind”. Jesus did not save people as a “spirit” but in the form of a man. Therefore, be careful, Christians, that you are not “goofy”, gullible, or carried about by every wind of doctrine. We must be led by the Light.. Don’t be hasty in the making of your decisions. A hasty, driving spirit is not of God.

Smith Wigglesworth To discern spirits we must dwell with Him who is holy, and He will give the revelation and unveil the mask of Satanic power on all lines.

God bless you!
