Test The Spirits So You May Know!!!
As I read from the book of Malachi, I want to share the revelations given to me.
God draws His chosen. This is evidenced throughout His word. And it brings a fabricated belief to mind.
I am speaking on this because I watched a woman who spoke of having visions on YouTube and she began praying over her audience. In the past, I felt bad about being skeptical of everyone who professes the name of Jesus. But the Spirit spoke to me and reminded me to “Test the spirits, to know whether they are of God”.
In essence, He was warning me not to doubt His unction’s. To know that I am led by Him.
People may say, “Once saved, always saved”. This is simply not true. Remember this, as spirit beings.
God Calls You While You are Spirit Being
This is the word that the LORD spoke to Jeremiah. “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations” (1: 5, KJV).
Because God knows us in the Spirit. He knows our character. The thoughts and intents of our hearts. He even knows our eternal resting place. This is why He has no pleasure in those who turn back.
Listen to this, “‘I have loved you’, says the LORD. But you say, ‘How and in what way have You loved us?’ ‘Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?’ declares the LORD. ‘Yet I loved Jacob (Israel);
“‘But [in comparison with My love for Jacob] I have hated Esau (Edom), and I have made his mountains a wasteland, and have given his inheritance to the jackals of the wilderness'” (Malachi 1: 2-3, AMP).
Why Privilege and Pride are So Dangerous
This will be for anyone who believes that he is entitled to salvation because of who he is. And what group he may belong to. And according to how Satan has deceived him.
This is why pride is so dangerous. Let me confirm this. And as I do so, know that it is not that God doesn’t love His entire creation. He does.
But we are in fact, in spiritual warfare. And He knows those who would reject Him. Even before they were given a body.
“As it is written and forever remains written, “JACOB I LOVED (chose, protected, blessed), BUT ESAU I HATED (held in disregard compared to Jacob. What shall we say then? Is there injustice with God? Certainly not!
“For He says to Moses, ‘I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHOMEVER I HAVE MERCY, AND I WILL HAVE COMPASSION ON WHOMEVER I WILL HAVE COMPASSION.’
The Importance of Faith and a Contrite and Humble Spirit
(Now this is why faith is so important.) “So then God’s choice is not dependent on human will, nor on human effort [the totality of human striving], but on God who shows mercy [to whomever He chooses- it is His sovereign gift]” (Romans 9: 13-16, AMP).
Now I am going to show you how this is connected with the bigger picture. That there is a spiritual realm. And why we must be cognizant of Satan’s devices. But let me give you a couple of more examples.
This is the following scripture in the 9th book of Romans. An endorsement of Exodus 9: 16. “For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth” (Romans 9: 17, KJV).
With All Your Wisdom, Get Understanding
Understanding that scripture is key to connecting the dots. So before I do this, let me give you one more affirmation. From Jesus Himself. Because turning from God didn’t start with man, but in the spirit. Before the human body was created.
This will also explain why. Listen. “But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
“And he said, therefore said I unto you, that no man can come to me, except it were given unto him of my Father. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him” (John 6: 65-66, KJV).
Connect the Dots
Now let me take you back to the book of 1 Kings. Pay attention. “The LORD said, ‘Who will entice Ahab to go up and fall at Ramoth-Gilead?’ And one said this, while another said that.
“Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD and said, ‘I will entice him.’ The LORD said to him, ‘How?’ And he said, ‘I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ Then the LORD said, ‘You are to entice him and also succeed. Go and do so.'” (22: 20-22, AMP).
I want you to recognize that this spirit chose his mission. And the prophets were susceptible to him because they had already chosen to do wrong in their hearts. And finally, God gave His approval. Knowing that the spirit would be successful.
If you receive this message, then it is of God. And if you don’t, it is still of Him. Just know that I am coming to you in the spirit of truth. And from a place of love.
Confirmation from the LORD
I had to come back to you again because right after I finished writing this the LORD validated it through a friend with this testament. This is what she sent me.
“As for you, the anointing [the special gift, the preparation] which you have received from Him remains [permanently] in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you. But just as His anointing teaches you [giving you insight through the presence of the Holy Spirit] about all things, and is true and not a lie, and just as His anointing has taught you, you must remain in Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him]” (1 John 2: 27, AMP).
Amen and Hallelujah!!!
