Stand Firm – Be on the Alert – Test the spirits

 1 John 4:1 Beloved, 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.

2 Corinthians 2:11 in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

Video:

 Part 3 – Shocking footage of one of the worst “invasions” of false spirits that the church has ever seen. Proof showing that she has been invaded by counterfeit spirits on a worldwide scale. This is the third part of a documentary tracing this massive invasion – and showing the terrible impact it has had. Please share it with your friends.

 Leaders and movements involved:

“prophetic, apostolic, Todd Bentley, Lakeland revival, Rick Joyner, Morningstar, Toronto blessing, new Mystics, John Crowder, ihop, Mike Bickle, Patricia King, Joshua Mills, who promotes new age out of body spirit travel and other manifestations, false revival, the river, Bob Jones, john Paul Jackson, Sid Roth, chuck pierce, Bill Johnson, Randy Clark, Peter Wagner, Dutch Sheets, Pentecostal, charismatic.”

Do these manifestations look like those in the video are in control, sober, alert? It does not! The Bible tells us in 1 Peter 5:8 to be watchful, alert, and vigilant because our adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. When this instruction is ignored, we are easy pray for the enemy and can be deceived.

 “False manifestations are often caused by believers seeking “touches”, blessings or experiences, rather than seeking God for HIS sake. It is very dangerous for Christians to seek anything but a deeper and purer relationship with Christ Himself. Any seeking after mere touches or experiences is really nothing but soulishness, and can result in great spiritual deception. Some of the false manifestations that result are merely fleshly, while others can be downright demonic – especially if they involved a ‘casting off of restraint’ or a kind of “wildness”. Sometimes in extreme cases it is possible for whole movements to be given over to these kinds of countrfeit manifestationss.” Andrew Strom from Why I left the Prophetic Movement –

 1 Peter 5:8

 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. NASB

 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. NIV

 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: KJV

“Be sober, be vigilant,…. The apostle had exhorted to each of these before; see 1 Peter 1:3 but thought fit to repeat them; sobriety and watchfulness being exceeding necessary and useful in the Christian life; and the one cannot well be without the other: unless a man is sober in body and mind, he will not be watchful, either over himself or others, or against the snares of sin, Satan, and the world; and if he is not on his watch and guard, he is liable to every sin and temptation. “ Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
