Devotion: Be Careful with lying spirits

21

1 John 4:1 “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

Every word and every advise should be tested by the Word of God because there are also falsehood out there.1 Thes 5:20-21 “Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good.”

I heard someone say there is no smoke without fire. He wanted to say the rumour he had heard should have some truth in it. This is not always the case. Some false spirits have gone out into the world to confuse and accuse brethren. They speak falsehood without single truth. Be careful! “Matthew 26 : 59-60 “The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death. But they did not find any, though many false witnesses came forward.”

bibleOne of the common ways the devil uses to defeat many believers, families, organizations,churches, ministries or nations is through lying or false spirits. These spirits are not only in false prophets but can also use other people closer to you.

In Gen 3, False spirit told lies to Eve and she was deceived and both her and her husband disobeyed God. Now whole human race is affected with the sin until one is born again.

In Gen 16 Lying Spirit spoke through Sarai to advise Abraham to take Hagar to bear children. It was as a brilliant idea but Ishmael’s descendants are the ones troubling Christians today. In 1 Kings 13 an old prophet through lying spirit advised a young prophet who disobeyed God’s command and he was eaten by lion.

He spoke through Peter to prevent Jesus from fulfilling his Work. Jesus rebuked him(Mat 16:23). Peter himself didn’t know it was an advice of a lying spirit. He thought he was giving brilliant advice to Jesus.

In 2 Chro 18 false spirit enticed Ahab to go to war and and he was killed. False spirit spoke through the prophets who prophesied falsely that Ahab would win the battle when actually he lost. Seemingly brilliant prophecy turned tragic.

The most common thing is that the lying spirits will mostly come through the people that are closer to you. Dont take advice because the person is close to you. Rather test it if it inline with the Word. Sometimes it would be an advice by someone closer that sounds nice and brilliant but has destruction in the end. A single advice can destroy you forever. Be extra careful. It would other times come as an accusation.You can be accused of something you have never done but because the person is closer to you, people believe them. Be extra careful. Test with the Word.

Prayer
Thank you Father for the Word that keeps me from all spirits of deception. As I walk in your word, I am protected from the influence of false spirits. In Jesus Name. Amen
