One thing is clear. We are going to have to know who and what is speaking!
There are all kinds of prophecies coming forth. Since we were forewarned in much verse, it’s a truth that much is not coming from The Spirit. It’s just not.
I was given a reminder just now of the apostle who used the term “enticing words of men’s wisdom.” And even now, we are hearing much of that. There are those who continue to preach wisdom, that is truly not from above.
We must get a better understanding of some things. There is no spiritual gift called, the gift of discernment.
Every person who is filled with The Spirit, has a natural in-born detector for determining and knowing both bad and good.
There is most definitely a true spiritual sense that alarms or confirms what we see and hear. The deeper we are in God and His Word, the more we pray and desire to follow the leading of The Spirit, the more acute and accurate we become. We are taught it.
It’s no wonder that one particular gift of The Spirit has been so suppressed and even discouraged. It’s the gift that is called “Discerning of Spirits.”
I must say, this manifestation of The Spirit comes with a heavy price tag. It may ouch some, but not everyone has it; no more than everyone has all of the same gifts as others in the Body.
It’s given “severally” as The Spirit so desires and assigns. Those with this gift, by the Holy Ghost, know, see, hear, feel and detect spirits; all spirits.
What appears to many as genuine and full of the Holy Ghost, through The Spirit, will be seen for exactly what it is.
Perhaps, someone full of self, envy and the desire of vain-glory and power. They’re fake. And they know you know it. They may hate you and seek your ruin.
There is much that has gone on with these stages that have been erected in the place of a church platform, that is undeniably full of flesh. The desire to please men, the wanton need for riches, has been rampant.
I’ve received so much encouragement and support from words that have been spoken here. Especially at a time when I need it the most.
Words of wisdom and words of knowledge have come forth, that have moved me and even spared my life. It has been a life-line during a time of great turmoil and sorrow.
I don’t know about you, but I have experienced a true upending and overhaul of my own life. It’s been a long process coming, before I could entertain the idea that all of this sickness, this awful suffering, pain and heartache, turned out for my good.
We’ve got to let The Holy Ghost move and work in this hour; right now. It must begin with us; our own personal encounter with The Spirit.
We are destined to perish without it. It starts once more with our basic relationship with Jesus. If all my learning and knowing has not brought me closer to Him, if I do not know Him more than I ever have in all my life, all of this was for nothing.
He said so and so did his Apostles. But I do. I love The LORD more today. He has truly become my true friend.
If your spiritual senses have actually increased, by reason of use, you’ll know almost instantly if what you’re hearing is of The Spirit.
There is a tone you can detect quickly and in some cases immediately, in what the person is presenting. It may be necessary to listen more closely and even review again in certain situations.
God is going to use folk we don’t approve of and some we don’t even like in this time.
Hear this, I say it in the fear of The LORD. He can speak through frauds and those known to thwart and abuse His power.
It confuses those of us who know so much. God, let me stay on my face before you.
