Dear friends, 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. – 1 John 4:1 (NIV)
"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. – Matthew 7:15 (NIV)
but test them all; hold on to what is good, - 1 Thessalonians 5:21 (NIV)
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves. – 2 Peter 2:1 (NIV)
This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD. –Jeremiah 23:16 (NIV)
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, - 2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
It saddened me…to hear from someone I knew…that she felt the energy…of something…hoping for a miraculous healing…for an extremity that person injured long time ago. She thought the person administering the healing was touching her…When she wasn’t. And that person explained that it was “the energy…”
I told her not to be angry with me. I just wanted to make her aware. Out of concern. For her to be more careful about such things. Because of many deceptions from the spirit world. As I prayed silently. And thanked God for His truth…
Healing touch…As I believe in the healing that also comes from the Lord. But I also hear and see many manifestations that are not mentioned in the Bible. His Word. So many deceptions around us. As humans, we are always inclined to expect wonderful display of God’s power. But as followers, the Bible says, we are to worship “by faith” and not by sight. We are to follow Jesus by Spirit and His Truth…
But," he said, "you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live." – Exodus 33:20 (NIV)
Only His doctrine will guide us against such spirits of errors!
Lord, please give us, your children your gift of discernment. Thank You for Your truth!
