(KJV.) ST. MARK 4:11-12
(11) And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
(12) That seeing they may see, and not perceive, and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
THE GIFT OF DISCERNMENT
Brethren, though Jesus Christ came to the world, ministered, suffered, crucified, resurrected from the dead, granted salvation, free grace, and life everlasting to all those who will accept, believes in him as Lord and Savior; thereafter beacons souls in world of darkness to come unto him; despite these facts, there are children of perdition, certain souls that are marked for eternal damnation, and regardless of how many times these souls are beacon to come to Jesus Christ for eternal lives, they will not hinder to his voice, come unto him, but rather continue to participate in ungodliness of this world of darkness; Jesus Christ himself, prayed to our Father about these souls, refer to book of St. John 17:12: we perceived that all souls have different assignments to perform in this world, and we ought to know who we are in this world, function with gifts and talents to glorify our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, be rewarded accordingly on earth, and in everlasting life.
However, there are also souls who have been given evil assignments from the enemy to pester with children of our Father; believe it or not, they are in this world, within secular environments, friends and family circles, even in the body of Christ; therefore, let us be in spirits at all times, be alerts, to discern who we associate ourselves with in this world, listen carefully, when others are speaking to know if their words are anointing words of the Holy Spirits or deceptive words from the enemy, to derail, lead souls into damnation: case in point, when Jesus ministered the kingdom words on earth, many times, he spoke in parables, that souls who were present with him, disguised enemies, wolves in sheep clothing, agents of the devil, who assembled with him, to trapped him with his own spoken words, should not be able, to fully understand meanings of his narratives; however, he explained to his disciples secretly; therefore, let us not just open up our mouths to speak without thinking first, of what will come out of our mouths, words are seeds of our hearts, in other not to relate our good intention onto enemies within our environments, for no one knows who they really are, except our Father, reveals them through Jesus Christ, by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; therefore, if we receive revelations of certain enemies of our souls; let us not fight back physically, but rather pray for their souls to come out darkness into marvellous light of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, receive salvation, free grace, and eternal lives.
This is another an example of how children of perdition operate among believers, when Jesus Christ called his disciples to follow him, he also called Judas Iscariot among the twelve disciples, refer to book of St. Matthew 10:4; who was predestined to betray him, during his ministration, Judas was with Jesus, heard his sermons, but when the time came for him to betray him to enemies, spirits of perdition took absolute control of his innermost spirits, Judas, did what he was predestined to do, handed Jesus Christ over to his enemies, for trials and crucifixion; however, Jesus triumphant over the enemy, he resurrected again from the dead the third day by the power of Holy Spirit, ascended into heavenly places, seated on the right hand of our Father as an advocate for humanity and lives forevermore; though Judas fulfilled his assignment as a betrayer of Jesus Christ, because his soul was marked for damnation, the enemy led him away to hang himself on the tree, destroyed his own life; refer to book of St. Luke 22; therefore, whether we are aware or not; there are souls presently hearing sermons as believers, unbelievers, who may be tangled up with evil works of darkness, and are marked as children of perditions for damnations, that only the blood of Jesus Christ can change their final destinations to that of everlasting life; therefore, if we have not received him yet into our hearts as Lord and Savior, time is running out; let us not delay ourselves any longer, but come unto him with all our labors and heavy laden, receive rest in him for our souls, and life forevermore.
Dealy beloved, though each soul was given five physical senses; the eyes to see, ears to hear, noses to smell, tongues to taste delicacies, hands to touch one another; the same gifts are given spiritually to believers, in other to discern things of the spirits; eyes to see spiritual revelations, noses to smell filthiness of spirits, tongues to prophecy, minister, preach the word, taste demonic polluted foods, not to partake, hands anointed with spiritual powers, to pray, declare and decree, take authorities over demonic spirits; however, not all believers possess all these gifts, but others do; regardless, let us seek things of the spirits, that we may know how to operate among the world of darkness, resist devil and he will flee away, continue to walk in the righteousness of our Father, cast all our cares on Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, trust and believe in him forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
