John the Baptist:   "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove and resting on Him"  [Yahshua : God saves --- Hebrew name of Jesus] (John 1:32)

Let's face it, we humans have different opinions and we disagree
in many ways. Even members of the same household think
differently. Assuming there are nearly three billion adults today,
we have three billion opinions.

That is why human opinions are not the measure of truth. Only God
can determine what is truth. This may appear simple, but the
implications are deep and far reaching. In other words, either we
agree with what God says, or we are on the wrong side of truth.
Only God can say, "If you are not with me, you are missing the
truth."  One can quote the right scripture in the wrong human spirit.
The Holy Spirit must sift motives to apply right scripture for the
right occasion.  This is a balance many miss or fail to understand
its significance.  "Be not wise in thine own eyes..." (Proverbs 3:7).

This is the reason Jesus asserts that true worship of God must be done in
truth and in spirit (John 4:24). In truth, to be sure we are on the right
premise; in spirit, so we are in tune with the Divine Spirit.

Have you heard from the Spirit lately? Or did you know that you
can indeed hear from the Spirit?

I am not talking theories here. I am not talking religious
activities here.

The Spirit has a mind and can speak. Examples from scripture:

1. 'Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will
depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits [other
spirits can influence your spirit too] and doctrines of demons' (1
Timothy 4:1).

2. 'For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us...' (Acts
15:28) --- agreeing with the Spirit.

3.  "As they ministered to the Lord and fasted,
the Holy Spirit said, 'Separate to Me Barnabas and Saul
 for the work which I have called them'" (Acts 13:2).

4. "He who has an ear [spiritual ear], let him hear what the
Spirit says to the churches" (Revelation 2:29).


WARNING:  "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1).   TWO TESTS:  (1) Must acknowledge: Jesus is the Son of God who died on the cross and rose again.   (2) Another group of false teachers will acknowledge Jesus Christ (Matthew 24:5), but under this cover will deceive many and make themselves filthy rich by extracting money from gullible believers --- such as Kenneth Copeland, Mike Murdock, Todd Coontz, Benny Hinn, Paula White, etc.  (Let this not dissuade you from giving to the Lord's work; but prayerfully ask God whom/where to give, and let your contributions reach truly needy souls.)
