Do you know how to discern spirits? There are only two spirits:-
- Spirit of God (Holy Spirit)
- Spirit of Satan (Evil Spirit)
The two spirits are in the world fighting to bring many people to their kingdoms. Many people, even the Christians, have being and are being deceived by the evil spirit because many cannot discern spirits.
There are many men preaching but not all are powered by the Holy Spirit and not all are preaching Jesus Christ.
Some are powered by the evil spirit, Satan, while others are powerfully powered by the Holy Spirit. All are in the world right now carrying out their assignments and duties as assigned by their masters.
Then, how do we differentiate their spirits and know their masters? Only by discerning spirits.
How to discern spirits
The power powering these men reveals who they are and the master they are serving. There are two ways to discern spirits;
Ways of discerning spirits
1. Gift of Spiritual discernment
This is a gift of the Holy Spirit, not in all people, not every person has it.
The gift of spiritual discernment differentiates these two spirits.
I remember meeting a boy, who has never seen or heard me, for the first time and just from looking at me he said, ‘you are saved‘. I enquired to know more about him and i found out that just by looking at people this boy can discern spirits and i was amazed.
Different individuals have different gifts according to Jesus Christ grace and will. Then if you do not have the gift of discerning spirits, how do you discern spirits?
These the way revealed to me by God when i visited heaven.
2. The name ‘Jesus Christ’.
There is a name above all names in the world and the agents of Satan and even Satan cannot say this name.
Phil: 2:9-11 therefore God has also highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
But the bible goes further to say that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, why?
When you say the name Jesus Christ, you acknowledge that Jesus is Christ and Lord but when you say ‘Jesus’ alone without ‘Christ‘ you have not acknowledged Him as the Christ.
The name ‘Jesus’ is a Jewish name like any other name. There are many people named the name ‘Jesus’ and even demons bear this name. Act: 13:6…they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-jesus.
There are so many ‘Jesus-es‘ but only one ‘Jesus Christ’ and saying the name ‘Jesus’ does not mean you are talking of ’Jesus Christ’.
The devil is deceiving many people for not understanding this.
You will hear a preacher or any other man/woman utter the name ‘Jesus’ all day long but not ‘Jesus Christ’. Satan has his own demons named ‘Jesus’ and many powered by him will utter the name ‘Jesus’ referring to these demons.
People powered by the evil spirit cannot say the name ‘Jesus Christ’ because it is acknowledging that Jesus is Christ.
Have seen and heard many people calling themselves ‘men of God’ who cannot say the name ‘Jesus Christ’ but they will utter the name ‘Jesus’ more than a thousand times preaching or teaching.
Jesus said, ‘for many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am Christ’.
The word, ‘I am Christ’ is quoted meaning they will not acknowledge Him as Christ but acknowledge themselves as the Christ i.e. they will not say the name ‘Jesus Christ’.
There is power in the name ‘Jesus Christ’
The name ‘Jesus Christ’ is powerful than any other name and it sends shivers into the devilish kingdom.
It is in the name ‘Jesus Christ’ that apostles and all true men of God used to perform miracles and signs not just the name ‘Jesus’.
Jesus power is only realized when we acknowledge Him as the Christ, by calling Him ’Jesus Christ’.
In the bible, all miracles and signs done by the early apostles like Paul, peter and John were done in the name of Jesus Christ not just Jesus.
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have given I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise and walk Acts 3:6.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
The name is ‘Jesus Christ’ not just Jesus. The name ‘Jesus Christ’ acknowledges Jesus is Christ.
In today’s world and even in the churches, miracles and signs are performed only by the mention of the name ‘Jesus’ not ‘Jesus Christ’. Christians open up your eyes.
- Who can say the name ’Jesus Christ’ is powered by the Holy Spirit
- A man who cannot utter the name ’Jesus Christ’ is powered by the evil spirit
- Miracles or signs performed only by the name ‘Jesus’ are not from God
Be careful and prayerful and know how to discern spirits; how to differentiate power or works of the Holy Spirit and the evil spirit.
