JUDGE ALL
PROPHECIES! TEST ALL THINGS; HOLD FAST WHAT IS GOOD. ABSTAIN FROM EVERY FORM OF
EVIL.

My dear friends don’t
believe everything you hear. Carefully weigh and examine what people tell you.
Not everyone who talks about God comes from God. There are a lot of lying
preachers loose in the world (1 John 4:1 MSG).

Some people
are quick to believe visions, dreams, or prophecies without first finding out
whether or not such visions, dreams or prophecies are in line with the Word of
God. This accounts for the mess many have found themselves in today. A vision,
dream, or prophecy that isn’t consistent with God’s Word, is not from God. In
fact, such visions, prophecies, revelations and dreams should be rebuked in
Jesus Christ Name!

The only
sure way to know if a vision, dream, prophecy or revelation is from God is to
check its consistency with God’s Word. God doesn’t contradict Himself! Take for
example, someone who dreams about getting married to a non-Christian. There’s
no need to muse about such a dream because it definitely contradicts the Word
of God. 2 Corinthians 6:14says, “Be ye
not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath
righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with
darkness?”

I
Thessalonians 5:21 says “Prove all
things; hold fast that which is good.”
In other words, subject all things
to the light of God’s Word. Don’t accept a prophecy, dream or vision that
doesn’t measure up with the Word of God. Just because you felt good about it
doesn’t mean it came from God Almighty.

God’s Word
is the supreme authority-the sole standard-by which we judge whether the manifestations
we see or experience are from Him. Therefore, judge all prophecies with the
Word of God; if they’re not in sync with the revelations of the new creation in
Christ Jesus, they must be discarded.

PRAYER

Dear
Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me Your Word. It is the supreme authority
by which I live and conduct all my affairs. I know without any reservation,
that the story of my life is one of Your grace, favour, and love, because I
live by the Word, in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
