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. 1 John 4:1
The verse above says it in a nut shell. You can not believe everyone who claims to be preaching the truth. Many false prophets are out there and there are seducing spirits. Sheep in wolves clothing if you will. Similar to how weeds can choke plants with feeder weeds like tentacles grabbing and choking the plant, the truth can be choked by false teachers and evil spirits.This is why it is crucial you stay in the word of God and don't believe everything you hear but look it up for yourself. In the book series 'Left Behind' later made into three movies, the anti Christ, known as Carpathia in the book, tricked and seduced many people. If you know the truth you should be able to recognize deception which comes in many forms.Satan is not stupid. He knows how to bait the hook so be on your guard. Stay in prayer and in the word and know the truth and pray for those who do not.PRAYER: Keep me alert Lord to danger that is always lurking trying to throw me off guard. Help me be gentle and meek to those who may not understand and help me have the right words to say to help win people to Christ. In Jesus' name. Amen.
