Discerning of Spirits

Here is another important part of hearing from God and it is discerning of spirits.  This is so needful today because there are so many people trying to make a quick buck and they are deceiving people and taking their money.  We can pick up on it with our spirit.  We will just know it in our spirit, that person is lying to me or that person is trying to deceive me and take my money.

There is much confusion today what is the truth about God and spiritual things and many people are deceived into thinking there are many ways to heaven but that is not according to scripture.  Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father. He is the only way to heaven.   We can keep free from this kind of deception if we pay attention to our spirit and what we are feeling down in our spirit.  If there are truths according to the Word of God spoken to us our spirit will bear witness this is a truth that lines up with the Word of God.  And if there is false doctrine being preached it just won’t feel right in our spirit.

Remember what Paul told us in Heb 5:14:

Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. KJV

Our spirit man’s senses will discern both good and evil through using them continually day after day, like Jesus going back and forth checking in the natural but then checking in his spirit man.  The more we exercise our spiritual senses the quicker we will pick up on what is good and what is evil.  And the more time we spend in the Word of God the easier it will be for the Holy Spirit to bring scriptures to our remembrance and quickly discern this doctrine, this teaching, this and that is wrong because it goes against the truths of the Word of God.
