Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. I John 4:1
Sadly, there many people in this world who teach falsehoods about God. They are self appointed purveyors of their so-called truth. Those that buy into what they are selling are devastated, doomed and ultimatley damned.
How can I tell the difference? Fruit! I look for the love that flows from a “spirit” or doctrine that is passed off as truth.
Lord Jesus, as I proclaim and teach Your Word, may there be a wide and long wake of love that flows from the lives of all who appropriate Your example and teaching. I want to be a genuine prophet (proclaimer of Your Word).
