Test the Spirits

Updated on April 30, 2012

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1


We must be careful of false doctrine especially when we are trying to get our spirits renewed. There are so many false teachers out there and unfortunately many of them are just in it for the money; money is their god. The bible tells us to test the spirits to see whether they are from God. We can test the spirits by praying that Holy Spirit will show us the truth and by getting deep into the word. Study the word and pray so that you won't be decieved. If a ministry has all the right music and all the right Christian sayings but something is just off then it is probably not of God. Maybe they don't have the fruits of the spirit. Are they glorifying God? or themselves? The bible warns us not to believe every spirit but to test the spirits.

      We must be good Bereans and know the Word of God so that when a counterfeit comes along, we will recognize it. Love the photo. Blessings Skye

      So true, we should just pray that they repent and find Jesus.
