Test the Spirits (1) (sermon also available at church on CD)

August 9, 2020

Bible Text: I John 4:1-6 |

Have you ever noticed how when something major happens in this country there is a sudden onslaught of books and prophecies concerning the end times and what we Christians need to know? With the onslaught comes the proclamation of new revelations and insights into the plans and works of God. Jesus had no sooner ascended into heaven and false prophets were already at work, with the spirit of the antichrist let loose upon the earth. At such a time as then and now, John tells us to “test the spirits”; perhaps a warning for us not to be so gullible. Over the next two Sundays we’ll consider what it is to “test the spirits” including why it is so important and so difficult to do so.
