We must pray for discernment. In 1st Corinthians 12, Paul refers to “distinguishing between spirits” as a spiritual gift that God gives to believers. Discernment allows us to recognize deceivers, liars and evil. Discernment enables us to recognize what is of God, and what is of satan. It gives all of us the opportunity to block demons from influencing our thinking and taking control of the world.
There are many folks who cannot recognize demon spirits. They have lost the ability_ or never had the ability to recognize lying spirits. They are incapable of seeing the truth, so they support deceptive and erroneous laws and doctrines. They call themselves Christians but follow the same traits of the demon possessed spirit that leads them. For generations, mankind has used scripture to oppress others who do not think as they think. Beware!!
Jesus Christ, our Lord, has been kicked out of our schools, some places of worship, and out of the minds of cult followers. God is only absent where a spirit has fallen prey to satan. That is why we are experiencing so much hell on earth. Weak souls have succumbed to the enticements of satan. These are spiritually weak vessels who have forgotten that the scriptures are weapons for our use in spiritual warfare, it is our duty to use those scriptures and our prayers to win the war against evil.
God won the battle, but the war is an earthly battle for us.
