The Kitchen Table 1 John 4 Day 16
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
Do not believe every spirit. One secret to living this life in the love of God is to know what the love of God looks and lives like. We miss out on the love of God because we don’t understand the motivation of man or the spirit behind the one that’s talking to us. There is always a motivation and sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s bad. A spirit world doesn’t have a body and a mouth so it operates in the mind to motivate the man who will listen. And the spirit of the anti-Christ operates to dominate by deception. Test the spirits. If they sound like Jesus but don’t look like Jesus, beware. Know the original and you won’t be fooled by the counterfeit. We are made for worship, so the enemy won’t come as denial but as deception because deception leads to denial. Know Jesus and you’ll find there is no other.
