(KJV.) 1 JOHN 4:1-3
(1) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
(2) Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God.
(3) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come, and even now already is it in the world.
THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST
Brethren, as humanity, unless we differentiate, know facts governing the kingdom of this world, the kingdom of heaven, that of darkness; we are spiritually blindfolded, stumbling, toss thro and fro, in, around, and about aimlessly in the darkness of this world, blind people leading the blind, we deceive ourselves and one another: therefore, let us not reject words of the Jesus Christ ministered through his servants, but receive them in good faith, follow through his guidances, escape evil devices of the enemy, walk in the victory of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, into eternal lives.
Jesus Christ knows the future of this world, humanity, things yet to manifest on earth; through his words, he is currently preparing his believers for events yet to manifest on earth, to discern works of darkness, walk in his righteousness, choose eternal lives over eternal damnation: the question is, how do we know exactly what to do and what not to do, which pathways to take, narrower or wider roads into eternity, if we dare not find out the facts? at times, we do not want to listen to messages pertaining to the world of darkness, the second coming of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the end times phenomenon; however, these messages concerns us, whether we like it or not, because, they relate to what will happen to each and every soul in the future, whether we asleep in death or alive, when Jesus Christ comes back the second time; therefore, these messages matter to humanity more than messages of wealth and riches; unless we acquire the spiritual knowledge of things going on in and around the world of darkness, how can humanity discern what is going on in this world? This is a point to ponder on!
Referring to the above text, we are not to believe every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of our Father; first of all, how can we differentiate the spirits: the answers are within the context, (i) Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God. if ministering spirits come to minister unto our hearts, but refuse to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ throughout their ministrations, those spirits may be questionable spirits; let us think carefully about those messages before we act upon them; for it is written, Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles? refer to Mathew 7:15-16; (ii) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God: therefore, let us get the understandings, that no messenger of our Father, ministering by his spirits, can speak evil of Jesus Christ, but rather establish him as the one speaking through their flesh, also, no one can proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, except by the Holy Spirit within our innermost spirits prompts their hearts to proclaim his Holy Name.
Dearly beloved, there are only two spiritual kingdoms; firstly, the eternal heaven, where our Father reigns side by side with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and his Saints, subsequently, the world of darkness, with Satan, and his demonic entities; either we belong to the first kingdom of Jesus Christ or the second with the devil, there is no other kingdom in between these two kingdoms, such as, the undecided, set aside, lukewarm, bench warming world; therefore, if we are not under the umbrella of Jesus Christ, then we are under the umbrella of the Anti-Christ which is already ruling this world; therefore let us know which of the two kingdoms we belongs to, stand firmly under that umbrella of protection, if we are undecided on which kingdom to belong, please, do not stay undecided forever, but come under the umbrella of Jesus Christ, overload burdens upon his shoulders, have salvation, free grace, peace, joy and life forever and evermore. Do not stay under the umbrella of Satan, come out of the kingdom of darkness, into the lights of Jesus Christ! Amen and Amen!
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) 1 Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
