Most people would follow all kinds of teachings, majority of the world is being misled by these so-called men-of-God with their false doctrines. The Spirit of the living God in us is what ultimately distinguishes true believers from the world.
“Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.” – (1 John 4:13)
Jehovah doesn’t want us confused; He clearly gives us what we should look out for in those who profess to be His followers. The next thing is for us to know what His Spirit is and what its manifest is in our lives.
“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.” – (Colossians 3:12-14)
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are in Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” – (Galatians 5:22-24)
“A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” – (Matthew 7:18, 20)
Let us all, who profess to be followers of Christ search our hearts; do our lives manifest the fruits of the God of The Sabbath, or that of our adversary who is the devil himself?
