Don't Believe Everything You Hear


12/2/2018 Jeff Schwarzentraub 1 John 4:1-6

John warned against believing every spirit; that is, we are never to assume every spiritual experience or every demonstration of spiritual power is from God. We must test spiritual experiences and spiritual phenomenon to see if they are in fact from God. But we must test the spirits: This is important because many false prophets have gone out into the world. Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God: True prophecy, and true teaching, will present a true Jesus. Jesus is full of Grace and Truth and He is just, holy and love. The believer has a resource for victory, the vital presence of the indwelling Jesus, which makes victory always possible in and through Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. For the believer there is evidence of Christ living in and through them.
