What Is The Gift Of Biblical Discernment?
Hello everybody. I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday so far! I trust you had a great weekend and I hope you enjoy my humble blogs regarding my opinion on the Supernatural from a Christian point of view.... even though I hate calling myself a Christian due to how many of them exhibit poor examples. Remember we will answer for turning people off from getting to know The Lord. Have fun explaining why you called yourself a Christian but wanted to be a hypocrite and judge others using Christ's name in doing so. Remember we really want to be in the book of life. And it's sad because a lot of Christians are not going where they think when they leave this world to the other side. A lot of very bad examples of Christians make us all look bad but please know not all of them are like that. Bad ones ruin it for the good honest ones.
The word discern and its derivatives are translations of the Greek word anakrinoin the New Testament. It means “to distinguish, to separate out by diligent search, to examine.” Discernment is the ability to properly discriminate or make determinations. It is related to wisdom. The Word of God itself is said to discern the thoughts and intentions of one’s heart (Hebrews 4:12).
Just as Solomon sought discernment and wisdom (Proverbs 1:2; 1 Kings 3:9-12) to explore the handiwork of God (Ecclesiastes 1:13) and seek out the meaning of life (Ecclesiastes 12:13), so should believers seek “the wisdom that comes from heaven” (James 3:17). We must study the Scriptures which are “able to make you aware of the enemy as well as everything you will need to know to keep yourself safe. And Satan is not above God. The Lord is coming and he knows that for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:15). We pray to our Lord the prayer be “I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your words” (Psalm 119:125). The Bible has everything in it all the information how to conduct spiritual warfare when we find ourselves under attack and that's our discernment as well listen to what you might think your gut is telling you until you learn to recognize discernment. The Bible has all that we need. Even spiritual warfare is explained on how we fight the enemy. It's our weapon.
Something that's noteworthy speaking of song I'm finding out not a whole lot of people realize that King Solomon summons demons to do his bidding like building his castle and things to that nature and that's not what God wanted him to do. They say in Solomons last days that he spoke gibberish. Those demons definitely got him back and God only want him and there is such thing as free will. The days up to King Solomon stuff no one could tell he was saying because he was speaking gibberish and talking to people that were not there. Even the wisdom he was blessed with when it comes to having those demons do his bidding had to of known there would be repercussions. The book called The Lesser Keys of Solomon is nothing but a girl matter of how to summon I believe it's 74 demons I think?
The Bible will NEVER leave us defenseless! You see these demons fear Christ. They fear God. They truly do. Like in the Bible when the demon said to Christ "why have you come to torment us before the appointed time?"I believe this was the one where they (the demons) asked to be casted out into the swine. Remember???? I believe it was that depressed man who was possessed by some demons but I could be getting that mixed up with another story in the Bible so forgive me if I mix things up. I know for a fact these things happened in the Bible, my mind is just having a block. Lol. But you get the point that I'm trying to make.
What Is Spiritual Warfare:
Some Christians feel satan and demons are fought, using a variety of methods and prayers depending on the group, mostly prayer and fasting. From a biblical point of view, spiritual warfare is the cosmic war of good versus evil. Many battles are fought daily between God and Satan; between the Christian Church and the world fueled by our enemy; and within every child of God, between the Holy Spirit and the lusts of the carnal flesh. The clear meanings of good and evil, as defined by God rather than man, are revealed within the verses of the Holy Bible and the life of Jesus Christ. The Book of Daniel, chapter 10 provides one of the most striking examples of spiritual warfare found in Scripture. It's truly worth a read.
Discernment And Testing What We Are Being Taught.
Discernment is valuable (at least for me it was very helpful in the situations as Christians are responsible to test teachings, preaching and prophecy. It Hass to line up with the word of God. The Bereans were considered noble for hearing the teaching of Paul and Silas, receiving them with eagerness and “examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so” (Acts 17:11). These believers tested the words of the apostles, examining the Scriptures to see if what they were being taught was in line with the Word Of God. It's very important that we do that. All Christians are ultimately responsible for what they choose to believe, no matter whether or not they have been gifted with the spiritual gift of discernment. I just pray and do what I think God wants me to put out there. I always pray before doing a blog to see if the Holy Spirit shows me anything he would like me to share.
When I did two blogs on "Demons and Meth? A Door to Darkness?" and Meth and Demons Part 2 I never dreamed so many people knew about that connection yet. Many people fell victim. Please do read the above-linked blogs as I had to write a second one because the first one really reached out to a lot of people. So please feel free to take a moment to (no matter what you believe in) read "Demons and Meth A Door to Darkness?" if you Google that you will be surprised how many hits come up. Not to mention all the different stories people are now starting to share and come out a little bit more with it. Since more and more people are it makes others more comfortable. It's no different than when someone claims they have a demon or ghost, it's very hard to make any assumptions until you have done the walk-through and ask the appropriate questions and speak with all witnesses and take notes.
Spiritual Warfare is really one huge blessing the Lord left us with to cast out evil. Think about that. It's sad at times we may have to get dirty in order to handle that but just like Satan dispatches his demons there are Angels doing the same thing except to protect us and guide us in the right direction but we still have our free will. Search online for the paralysis and demons and it goes into more detail about that or you can read one of my blogs that I wrote about it in detail it was called and titled "The incubus and succubus". The enemy and his disgusting vile creatures Will invade you and your body and there's nothing you can you do. If you've had sleep paralysis know what I'm talking about. The body is still asleep but the brain is awake. I believe it's called a REM cycle. Upon just falling asleep or Just waking up. It's terrifying. And a lot of those cases are natural and known to be medical issue going on but some believe some cases are demonic visitation and I think I agree.
Thank you all for stopping by Eye On The Paranormal. Thank you for taking the time to read our blogs. Feel free to keep commenting the other two blogs I did on " crystal meth and demons". It is still receiving comments, actually both blogs people found help from. They felt better they didn't think they were crazy so you never know who could benefit from it. Just something I wanted to throw in real quick in case you think you have anything to add that would be helpful information on that subject. There's a lot of people struggling to find answers for it. It's definitely something that needs to be addressed already.
