Spirit of God or Spirit of the Antichrist?

antichrist2

Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world. This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a person claiming to be a prophet[a] acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God. But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here.

But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them. But we belong to God, and those who know God listen to us. If they do not belong to God, they do not listen to us. That is how we know if someone has the Spirit of truth or the spirit of deception. ~  1John 3:1-5

There are a lot of “religions” in the world today. How do you know what is right and what is not? I have heard people say it doesn’t matter, God knows the heart, or as long as you are a good person, or do good things. I have heard people say I am confused and not sure. I have people come to me with some of the strangest and craziest “doctrines” or beliefs I have ever heard. Like they have discovered something NEW and nobody knows about.

What about all the different religions within so called “Christianity”? What about all the do’s and don’ts in different religions? It’s really over whelming when you think about it. You lose friends and family over it. So how do you know? Most are based on Scriptures!!

If a person claiming to be a prophet[a] acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God. But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist….

And not only that but ……

If they do not belong to God, they do not listen to us. That is how we know if someone has the Spirit of truth or the spirit of deception.

It’s not rocket science , it is a deep relationship with the Father, the Holy Spirit lives within us and will ALWAYS reveal truth or deceptions. Remember Hebrews 4:12-13 — For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.

Now go out and have an EPIC day today!!
