TO KNOW WISDOM AND INSTRUCTION, TO PERCEIVE THE WORDS OF UNDERSTANDING; PROVERBS 1:2, King James.
I want to be able to explain this, as well, as I know, with the grace of the Holy Spirit, so you can have discernment. So you won’t be tossed to and fro with spirits. That perhaps may not come from God. But they may affect you, because you “feel” them. I suppose you could also call this mental illness. Or relate to this. If they attack you, spiritually.
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. HEBREWS 5:14 King James.
Have you ever had a premonition, a foreboding thought, about someone or something, a situation? You know that bad vibe, or even a premonition? Because it takes away your peace. Remember the scripture says, there is no peace to the wicked. But we are built in with antennas, that can either come from God, or the enemy. And you always have to see the source of the signal. Is it from God, or the devil? If static is there…. why?
THERE IS NO PEACE, SAITH MY GOD, TO THE WICKED. ISAIAH 48:22 King James.
Have you had fear? Have you been paralyzed by something, that you may not quite understand, but it somehow cripples you?
Well, from what I have learned, first, is to pray, and always trust God. Trusting God is vital, to our growth, as Christians, but in also growing ourselves spiritually, to comprehend, and to have discernment, to have understanding in matters.
You cannot have this kind of trust, if you are playing with other entities. If you are not totally obedient to God. If you are dabbling in spiritual entities, that do not come from God. There is a price to pay when one is not totally submissive to God, not resisting the devil. I will briefly say as well, if your bible is not a King James, you won’t have the full armor of God on, or will you be able to have full discernment.
If you compromise who you are in Christ, you can open doors, spiritual doors, that may deceive you. Confuse you, and actually bring say as an example a spirit of fear. And curses. Think about that. Because curses, are a principle, set in motion, by total disobedience, and God is not mocked. We reap what we sow folks. Read Galatians 6:7. King James.
So repentance, always clears the slate. Perhaps, you did something even unaware, that may have opened a door, but you need to shut it. You have to get understanding, and this is again, why I always recommend using a King James bible, so you comprehend, what pleases God. Because in that holiness, of a King James bible, you are hearing Gods voice. Not someone who corrupted it, and is used by the devil.
This is where the power is. I know God can speak to you, even if you just open a King James bible searching for an answer. He has done it many times for me. In fact, just this morning He did. I am amazed, when He gives me a word. To me, it is Him saying. I know, and you know that I know. I love it….. I praise my Lord. This is my relationship with Christ, the son, of God. It is the Holy Spirit…..that comes from God.
AND BE RENEWED IN THE SPIRIT OF YOUR MIND; EPHESIANS 4:23 King James.
But, let us say you opened a door, by going to a psychic, or listening to someone, who is a pawn of the enemy. Say you looked up your horoscope. You unknowingly opened up a door to the enemy. Say you made friends with the devil. Say you did that on social media. It was someone who is notoriously known to serve satan. Why would you do that? Yes I saw this, from someone, I loved in Christ, and it grieved me. Anyway…
WOE TO THE REBELLIOUS CHILDREN SAITH THE LORD, THAT TAKE COUNSEL BUT NOT OF ME; AND THAT COVER WITH A COVERING, BUT NOT OF MY SPIRIT, THAT THEY MAY ADD SIN TO SIN. ISAIAH 30:1 King James.
So, if you are not totally being obedient to God, by the cross, and what Christ did for you, you may have confusion, in comprehending spirits. You may need to repent.
What I have learned, is that if you have repented, and you realize that the goal, is to please God totally. To stay away from any kind of sin, or hinderance, that will stop His voice, and you are submitted to God, He can give you discernment. He can guide you. He can show you what is true, and what is false, about the feelings you may have. And about people. Situations.
Say for example, you get a bad vibe about someone. Look at the warning signs. That somethings not right. They seem to be loving, kind, and you love this person, but are they totally submitted to God? Do they have abnormal tendencies, where they seem toxic? Love is not there. Or they seem to be untrustworthy? You may get those red alerts from God, those warning signals. Don’t ignore them. Pray about it, and trust God. We know people, by their fruits. Is the relationship based on sin? I will be honest, I have never seen a relationship be fruitful if it started in sin, or sin was allowed. Or accepted. And repentance is missing.
DRAW ME NOT AWAY WITH THE WICKED, AND WITH THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY, WHICH SPEAK PEACE TO THEIR NEIGHBOURS, BUT MISCHIEF IS IN THEIR HEARTS. PSALMS 28:3 King James.
If you know you are doing everything within your own power, to obey God, to heed His commandments, to depart from anything that is not of God, He will give you discernment, through the Holy Spirit, and He won’t stop, until you obey Him, and walk away from someone, or something like that.
Consider it a test. Test the spirits, we are to test and try the spirits, because there are many who come in the name of the Lord, but they are not from God. You may need to walk away from them to see, how they react. See their fruit from afar. As well.
BELOVED, BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, BUT TRY THE SPIRITS WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD: BECAUSE MANY FALSE PROPHETS ARE GONE OUT INTO THE WORLD. I John 4:1 King James.
I have had a spirit of fear myself, in some things, and it was not from God, but actually the enemy, trying to scare me. Trying to cripple me, so that I would not be strong in Christ. But Christ tells us, He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. Read II Timothy 1:7 from a King James. Having a sound mind, can only come from being obedient to Christ, and submitting to God. So those negative spirits, cannot confuse you, or deceive you.
But in fear of God, I have also had the spirit of fear of Him, to depart from something, or someone not good for me. I understood, immediately with discernment, to walk carefully. Because I was being obedient to God, in fear of God.
I THE LORD SEARCH THE HEART, I TRY THE REINS, EVEN TO GIVE EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS, AND ACCORDING TO THE FRUIT OF HIS DOINGS. JEREMIAH 17:10 King James.
When I repented, and did the right thing, those spirits left. Sometimes, we don’t know what we do, that allowed that spirit, but the goal, is to always stay right with God through Christ. Stay away from sin. Which is disobedience to God.
God will dispatch angels on your behalf. Ministering angels as well. But remember if you want to get rid of something that you are feeling, you have to see, what are you doing? Who are you allowing in your life? Because the enemy will use people, even people you love.
And I am not only talking about family, but friends acquaintances. As well. Don’t trust everybody. I think I can actually say, I don’t trust anybody any more. Except my circle of love in my family. Which is good, they have proved loyalty, but others no. Sadly.
Because of the failed situations, I have seen in some relationships. But some of those people, could be potentially dangerous for me. As I look back. Yet some, relationships could be rectified, if they only saw their part.
I cannot be specific, exactly here, to give examples, because some things, are not always that clear, but God sees clearly, and this is where again, prayer, obedience, and trust comes in.
Anyway, I have come to trust Christ in this, and I just know, that by doing that and doing my part, I can be delivered. From evil. See, I have made terrible mistakes in judgment, but I have learned, I have to do my part, by being obedient to God.
By trusting those signals. If the signals are mixed, then I recognize that is a spirit of confusion, that does not come from God, but from the enemy. The scripture says, where envy and strife is there is confusion, and every evil work.
FOR WHERE ENVYING AND STRIFE IS, THERE IS CONFUSION AND EVERY EVIL WORK. JAMES 3:16 KJV.
Jealousy, is from the enemy. Love, good intentions, never has a motive. It just wants to please God and obey Him. It wishes well for others. It is accountable. It walks in love.
The other day, on social media, a woman, was insulting the President of the United States. Donald Trump. I looked at her profile, it said, she loved God, country, and some basketball team. But I challenged her, with courage, from God, and I told her, don’t tell folks, you love God, if you hate our President!
Because Christ told us, we would be known by the Love we have to God, through Christ. We are to love others, and even our enemies. It is very hypocritical to say you love God, if we are not loving, one another, and that includes our President. We are called to pray for our President, according to I Timothy 2:1-3 King James. I actually admit, I did not vote for him. But when he became President, I knew we are called to pray for him.
Let me tell you what happened. My heart changed. And I am ferociously vigilant to pray for him, and yes on occasion, defend him. I grieve when I see the hate. I support our President, because I don’t want to be someone who divides, or takes their freedom for granted. He strives for all of us. This unites us. And it pleases God. When we support and pray for him.
Anyway…..Make your choices carefully. Because not all spirits are from God, and there are wolves, in sheep clothing. And it may be hard, to leave some folks behind, but trust God. And please do not comment, and state he is a wolf. Because he accepted Christ, and there’s a place in hell for those who accuse. I understand that spirit of accusing, it does not come from God. But hell. Read Revelation 12:10. I will ignore such comments. Of Trump syndrome. That is also a spirit. But a spirit of hate. You can not have that spirit if you want to please God.
Anyway, I hope this helps, whoever may need some understanding in this matter. Concerning, having discernment, and spirits. But I want to conclude this, by tying this all together for you to consider as well, and ask yourself…
Why am I not getting answers to prayer? See, you cannot tap into Gods spirit, if you have allowed sin, denied His love, and choose to hate….You are disobeying God! You won’t get discernment, to comprehend these spirits, between good and evil. You need to repent. And I actually believe in repenting daily.
BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR. ISAIAH 59:2 King James.
You will not get answers to prayer, until you make it right with God. Break the spiritual tie, that hides truth, that confuses you, that could be a soul tie, that is not from God. Plead the blood of Jesus, when you seek God in these matters. Warn others, including family. This is not judging, this is warning according to Ezekiel 33. Love warns.
Whatever you do, obey God, and don’t just ignore those feelings, vibes, or premonitions. You may regret it. God has installed this in your spirit, so to speak, so you can recognize His power.
The greatest goal we can have in our lives, is to please God. To obey Him, to ensure, we are doing our part, to make sure the relationship is in tact. He did His part on the cross. But the greatest sense of accomplishment, in having these things take to heart, is that you know, you are doing everything in your own power, to make sure, you are trying to bless God in return. Don’t play with your salvation. Do not! Grace is good, but if sin is there, and you have not repented, don’t forget its recorded in the book of life.
Pursue God, with love, and obedience. With all your heart, soul, and mind. This deepens the relationship with Christ, in sweet fellowship. And there is no greater love, than His. It won’t happen if you are ignoring His truth, or His laws, and commandments. You won’t have discernment to understand the spirits.
DISCRETION SHALL PRESERVE THEE, UNDERSTANDING SHALL KEEP THEE: PROVERBS 2:11 KING JAMES.
