|Try the Spirit, Believe not Everything|
|1 John 3:24-4:6 (Part of the Does He Abide Within? series).|
|The most important thing to know is if Jesus Christ lives inside you. There seems to be a doctrine for every person out there. They take and change the Word of God for their own agenda. It's good to learn as much as you can of the Word of God but man didn't call men to preach. Only God can call a man out to preach. Some preachers are quiet, some are loud, some are short winded and some long. False prophets are running rampant in this day and time. There are cults on every corner. One doesn't need a doctrine in theology to understand the Word of God. If it doesn't stand up with the Word of God, then don't follow it. We should be open minded because we don't know all of what God has in store for us. A spirit doesn't come without a body. Spirits have to have a body to possess. When one comes to you and tries to pull you in, try its spirit to make sure in lines up with Gods Word. When you run into issues in your life and you always call your pastor with them, you're going to the wrong "friend". You need to seek God and not a friend or preacher for you help all the time. You should learn the Spirit that lives inside you and not believe every single outward spirit you hear. In order to know the false spirits you must have and KNOW you have the Spirit of God living inside you. So how do you know that He lives inside you? First off it's not about a feeling. Just because you've had goosebumps or the hair raised up on your neck doesn't mean that the Holy Spirit lives inside you. Jesus Christ was sent from His Father as a virgin birth and was crucified for our sins and rose on the third day. If Jesus Christ didn't come to earth in the flesh then the doctrine is false. We encourage you to study the religions and their doctrines for the truth. If their entire doctrine does not line up with with the Son of God coming to earth and being crucified, then it's false and of the antichrist. Don't be troubled by the cults and false doctrines because if you are of Christ, then He is greater than those and lives inside you.|
