Do not believe every spirit

Something that we must always be very clear about is that the Bible tells us that there would be “false prophets” and we must be very careful with that, because, in our time many have risen even saying that they are the reincarnation of Jesus, and even many have been dragged into their falsehoods.

The apostle John said:

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3 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

A main identifier of a false prophet is that they steal the glory from Christ, to listen to deceiving spirits. Example, every time we see that some nation is going through some catastrophe, there are always some who try to listen to the voice of God and thousands of people begin to share on the networks, and we should not be believing everything we hear, but carry all our trust towards the Word of God, since the Bible tells us that it is the safest Word.

Another way to identify someone who does not come from God is to see them deny Christ, His resurrection, that He is God, who came in the flesh and never sinned.

Dear brothers and sisters, may these words serve to test anyone who claims to have listened to God.
