How do we know what is from God and what is not?
Test all things; hold fast what is good.
1 Thessalonians 5:21
How do we test everything?
Alexander Scott 08/11/2018 15:42
We test everything by God’s word. Those who want to know Him more will seek Him more in His word. Proverbs 15:14a “The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge…” It’s all too easy to spend time listening to preaches, teachers etc, without checking the scriptures to see if what they are sharing is in context of the whole of the Bible. Let us be “Berean” and check everything by the scriptures.
Just because someone open the word of God and speak scriptures, does not mean to say that everything they say is from scripture. In 1 John 4 we are encouraged to test with the sprit.
Thank you for sharing that.
"Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."
