Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world, 1 John 4:1.
One of Jesus’ disciples provides an intriguing insight about the spirit world. Though its unclear where or how this information was obtained, John gives unguided souls something to think about. Whether its a thought that pops into your head, a gut feeling in your heart or a whisper, don’t assume the Holy Spirit is talking to you. Rather, test everything to discern if these voices are from God, the world or the Devil, 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22.
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour, 1 Peter 5:8.
In a world filled with guns and violence, its essential to control your own life. Choices, decisions and investments open the door to good and bad. Unfortunately, the more careless one becomes, evil is lurking right around the corner, ready to pounce at a moment’s notice. Therefore, to avoid future pitfalls in life, control your soul by keeping in step with the Holy Spirit, Galatians 5:25.
