How do we know for sure
But we come from God and belong to God. Anyone who knows God understands us and listens. The person who has nothing to do with God will, of course, not listen to us. This is another test for telling the Spirit of Truth from the spirit of deception.
1 John 4:6 msg
How do you know if someone claiming be bringing the message of God is from God?
You test them.
If they preach the gospel of prosperity (God will give you everything you pray for i.e. cars, money, mansions) they are liars. How do you know? Search the Bible. What does Jesus say? Seek ye first the kingdom of God.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21 New International Version
Therefore we should be concentrating our energies on becoming intimate with Jehovah and sharing the wonderful gospel with others. The Bible commands us to live by Gods Law. Put Jehovah first. The concern and welfare of others is second.
Materialism is always last.
Anyone who tells you different is from his god who is satan and will lead you into hell. How many of these holy rollers do we see exposed now? They drive in expensive cars and live in mansions from donations given to the church. All the while there are people in their congregation that need money for an operation, need money for food for their families. Do you seriously believe Jesus approves of this horrid action by the charlatans claiming to be disciples from God? I pity them on the Day of Judgment.
That is why it is important to read your Bible every day and commune with God every day. As you do your knowledge of him will increase hugely. Then when one of these evil vipers comes slithering your way, trying to empty your pockets into their, you will have the wisdom to not only avoid their poison, but to expose them for the filth they are.

Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding.
I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching.
For I too was a son to my father, still tender, and cherished by my mother.
Then he taught me, and he said to me,
“Take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live.
Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Getwisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.
She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown.” Proverbs 4: 1-9 New International Version
Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbioni (Jehovah our Teacher) I hunger like a starving child for Your divine wisdom to guide me in this journey of life that intimately leads to You. I ask this in the name of the greatest Rabbi, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
