Instruments of Satan

Such seem to have a form of piety, but operate from a false source and a spirit of witchcraft.
Like Saul, they may wear the royal robes, but The Spirit has long departed from them.
Discern the Authentic Works of God!
I’ve heard and seen so many people discredit the authentic Works of God, because they, “have seen the same things happen where people are worshipping in other faiths”.
The work of The Holy Spirit is mainly being attacked, because it is seen happening elsewhere also and immediately discredited as a result.

Always be discerning in The Spirit and vigilant.
Don’t allow the devil to rob you of God’s blessings, nor lead you into deception. Try the spirits. Discern the spirits.
That is how you should discern — not simply by what you see!
