Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world – 1 John 4 : 1
Most times we are carried away with what people say out of their mouth most especially when they mention God. The Bible tell us to try the spirits if they are of God because there are many false prophets, there are many false doctrines.
As we are praying to God focus on God and not on man. Because many people are always looking for prophesy, when they see anyone that can prophecy, whether he has the spirit of God or not they don’t care and it doesn’t concern them. Before you know what is happening, a covenant has been established. I pray that God should protect us against any evil covenant in the name of Jesus Christ.
I am not against receiving prophesy from a man of God but what I am saying is that some people cannot even pray again because they have received a prophesy. Prophesy cannot take you to heaven but rather your righteousness and holy walking with God. God is a respecter of those who diligently seek Him. No matter what you think about yourself, God can use you as well if you are ready and have a pure heart.
Jesus Christ said that, ‘‘if any man want to come after Him, he should deny himself and take his own cross and follow Him” – Matthew 16 : 24. The book of St Luke 9 : 23 says, ”take up your cross daily”. A father cannot carry the cross of his children no matter how you love them neither a mother nor anyone else but rather each one should carry his or her own cross.
When people are praising you, you need to be careful because it is not every word that comes out of their mouth are from their heart. There is no heart that has a zip which can be use to open the heart so that you can see what is inside.
A young mosquito went out flying for the first time in life. The father asked, how does it feel? The mosquito replied, it was great! Everyone was clapping for me. The father replied, they weren’t clapping for you. They wanted to kill you, the more they clapped, the more chances you are likely to die.
In life, not all the people who celebrate you are your well wishers. So be careful, because the enemy that will kill you, will not come with a sword, but with a smile.
PRAYER : Ever lasting Father, may Your name be praise forever and ever. Please, give us the spirit of discernment so that we can differentiate between Your voice and the voice of the enemies that are on sheep clothes in the name of Jesus Christ. Thank You Lord for answering our prayers in the name of Jesus Christ.
