A reminder for today
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is 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. (1 John 4:1-3)
How are you, my friend? I hope you had a great weekend and that you are all well rested and ready for today. Maybe we could’ve had one more day to this weekend. I must admit I would love one more day to get a little more rest. We are in the midst of a massive update and the workload is tremendous. I hope you guys are ok and that all is well on your side.
John makes a very important statement here and it is one that we will use a lot especially in the world we live in. Jesus spoke of false prophets and here John also mentions that there will be many false prophets. But most importantly John gives us a measurement. He says that we should know the Spirit. He that confesses that Jesus is the Lord and He came to this world in the flesh and gave His life and then rose from the death, he is for Jesus and a true prophet. He that does not confess Jesus is God in the flesh and gave His life and rose from the death, these are the antichrists. Revelation has a huge message on the coming of the antichrist, but in essence anyone that does not except Jesus Christ as God is also an antichrist. These are the false prophets and Christian oppressors that we see very often today. It is also the atheists that are trying to destroy Christianity.
The important thing that I want you to take with you is that you need to measure all prophets to this. Do not blindly follow anyone, but make sure that their spirit is in alignment with Jesus. Listen carefully to what they say and where their hearts are. Anyone that lives for Jesus and follows His Word and His example is on the right path, but those who does not is on a path to destruction. It is so important that we display the real Jesus in our lives so that we can show the world true Christianity. We are entering a time of turmoil and destruction and if we are not careful, we can be misled by the lies of the enemy. There is much we can discuss on the antichrist that we see in revelation, so maybe we should have a chat on what to expect. I will start tomorrow and we can have a look at the antichrist in more detail over the next few days. I hope you have a wonderful day.
Lord, open our eyes and ears and our hearts to your voice so that we will not be misled by the enemy and the false prophets that is under his power. Let us follow you and you alone, because you are our God and our only God. We live for you. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
