Commentary By: Gordon King
Children of God Almighty, the Lord of the universe, listen carefully and heed the words of God! We have been warned over and over again to beware and discern the spirits, we are told to rightly divide the word of God, and we are told that there will be false teachers and false prophets in the last days.
We are told not to be deceived by wolves in sheep’s clothing, and to be a Berean and search the scriptures for ourselves! Do not take the word of others regardless of what they tell you to be the truth. Test it against the word of our Lord in heaven.
These times that we live in are perilous times, times in which Satan and his demonic powers are hard at work in an attempt to destroy the workings of God Almighty!
There are those who come and claim to know the truth and shall lead many astray from the truth! Their doctrines are not from the word of God. There are many others who misinterpret the truth and by doing so will also mislead many down the wrong path!
This is why it is so vitally important that we know the truth of God’s word, that we rightly divide God’s word, and that we understand what it is that the good Lord is actually telling us! It is also vitally important that we are able to discern the spirits, to know the difference between a true teacher and a false prophet!
Many shall come saying that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was not enough, that you cannot be saved only by believing and placing your faith in Jesus Christ! Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was more than enough for everything and anything that we will ever need! Period! Many people do not really understand what Christ’s sacrifice means, nor do they understand the power behind it!
There are also those who will claim that there are many ways to heaven, do not believe it!
Salvation is only obtained by believing in Jesus Christ and placing your faith in Him! Thats it! Nothing more, nothing less! It’s not that hard to understand, yet many people make it much more complicated than it actually is!
Do not trust all spirits, do not believe everything that people are telling you without first testing against God’s written word!
We all have personal experiences with God, some may be written about in scripture some not, however this does not mean that they are not from the Lord! And what I am speaking about in this post is not about our personal experiences from God. I have had many such experiences in my lifetime, I know they were from God, yet there are those who tell me that I am wrong! So be it. No one can tell me that what I have experienced with the Lord is not real or did not happen, I am the one who had the experiences.
Demonic spirits are busy at work this very moment in time, yet God Almighty and His Holy Spirit are also hard at work at this very moment! Lets not forget that.
Trust in the Lord your God, know what He says, listen to His voice, and be able to discern the spirits. Have faith and hope in the promises of God, and know that what He says will be done! Place your trust and faith in God and He will see you through, He will bless you, and He will always be with you!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
