The Purpose Of The Gift Discernment of Spirits

 

 

First I would like to say, God gives you the free will to choose him and the Holy Spirit or choose evil. The things we see in the physical world is a product of what is in the spiritual world. According to the apostle Paul, who wrote one of my favourite books in the bible Ephesians there are three heavens. The first heaven is the reality we see with our natural eyes, the firmament which is the sky above us. The second heaven is where Satan and his demons’ dwell, and the third heaven is the heaven of heavens where God and Jesus have their kingdom and rule over the entire universe.  Many people have yet to see the spiritual world, they cannot see it with there natural eyes because Satan the god of this world has blinded the eyes of those who do not believe. The bible says 2 Corinthians 4:4 ,In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. However even those who believe in Christ can sometimes be blind that is why it is important for us to pray and ask God to open our eyes so that we can see in the spirit.  

There are spirits that are controlling this world.  behind every person there is  either the Holy Spirit controlling them or evil unclean spirits. God gives us free will to choose him or choose evil.  The gift called the discerning of spirits which is given to some of those who are in ministry and those who are the saints and followers of God, it is the gift that discerns the spirit that motivates a person, when we come to know what is inside of a person. God does not see people the way we see people, God does not look at the skin or the material aspects of people, he looks at the heart and what is inside that person. The bible says for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart 1 Samuel 16:7. That is why God and his servants are never deceived by the enemy and his servants, the bible says the enemy comes to us as an angel of light, and that he has ulterior motives which is of evil, to kill steal and destroy( John 10:10). The bible says in 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve

There are three purposes to this gift of discerning of spirits.

1. The first purpose of this gift is to lift the veil off of the unseen spiritual world and the plans of the enemy, the world that we have to deal with.

2.The second reason for this gift is to enable us to see the world and the people of the world as God sees. The bible says for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart 1 Samuel 16:7.

3. And the third reason for this is so that we will not be deceived by the enemy and his servants, the bible says the enemy comes to us as an angel of light, and that he has ulterior motives which is of evil, to kill steal and destroy( John 10:10). The bible says in 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. When you have this gift no one can deceive you. 

Prayer: Lord please forgive me of my sins, Lord remove anyone in my circle who does not have my best interest at heart. Lord remove anyone in my circle who has ulterior motives, Lord remove anyone in my circle who was sent as an agent of darkness. Thank you Lord for deliverance in Jesus name Amen
