The hierarchies of spiritual powers part 2

Updated on March 16, 2017

The Hierarchies of spiritual powers part 2

It is important that you read the part 1 of this article before reading the part 2 so that you can understand how we got to this point. There are many prophets who have come and gone. Some of them were known as or called false prophets. Even in recent time, there are prophecies that were not fulfilled and as such, it can and was called a false prophecy. For instance, many people have claimed that the world would end in a particular year and month which never happened. Such claim was witnessed again in 2011 when a man claimed the world would end sometime in 2011. There are other people who may not be considered as prophets but are known to possess some kind of spiritual powers and people have used such abilities to achieve things like healing, predict the future, guidance among others.

The big question has always been: who is saying the right thing and from the right source?

Who do we trust?

Spirituality is more of an individual thing because it can only be confirmed by those few who have the gift, and most times, by only the person who got the spiritual message. It means others have to choose to believe or to doubt.

People have various spiritual abilities and some people can be said to have attained spiritually more than others. That is some people are more spiritually powerful than others. Yet, there is something we may not really know, which is the question: Are the various spiritual powers as a result of the path chosen? That is are some people more powerful than others because of their chosen path? It is a known fact that even within the same path some people are more powerful than others, which they call degrees or level or gifts.

Lets us consider the bible verse below:

1st king 22: 6- 28

“Then the king of Israel...And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, what the LORD saith unto me, that will I speak….. And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramoth-Gilead to battle, or shall we forbear?...LORD said, these have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace….And he said, Hear thou, therefore, the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, who shall persuade Ahab that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-Gilead? And one said in this manner, and another said in that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth and do so. Now, therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee....”

Those who are interested in the events that followed, as recorded in the bible, can read up the remaining verse to find out how the king of Israel died in the battle. This bible verse is so interesting and I know that people have different interpretations of it but it is obvious that there are many questions we can ask from this verse as we consider the hierarchies of spiritual powers.

In part 3 of this article, I shall look in-depth in this topic so that men can understand the hierarchies of spiritual powers.
