1 Thessalonians 5:21 (NKJV): Test all things; hold fast what is good.


Matthew 24:23-25 (NKJV) 23“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25See, I have told you beforehand.

Brothers and sisters, this is why we need to study the word of God and hide it in our hearts. The word hidden in our hearts and the Holy Spirit will lead us to all truth. The devil is a fallen angel who masquerades as light and truth.

1 John 4:1-2 (NLT) 1Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world. 2This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a person claiming to be a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God.

If we are children of God, the Bible tells us the world will hate us. The devil hates us because we are true sons and daughters of the Most High God, and the Holy Spirit dwells in us, and we have a place in heaven, which Satan will never be able to occupy again. Even with our place reserved for us in heaven, we still must guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus and protect the anointing and gifts of God that He entrusted us with.

Declaration: I will ask God for instructions and discernment to see a deception before it begins. I will not be misled because of the Word that I know and because the Holy Spirit will guide me.
