I John 4:1 ” Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:15, “Watch out for false prophets.  They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”  So how as a Believer should I do this?  When I hear something, will my spirit bear witness to what I’m hearing…or is it unsettling and off-putting?  When a person is acting under the inspiration and anointing of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit residing within me should agree, or bear witness to the truth that is being spoken.    But without having my own strong personal foundation built on God’s Word, this ability to evaluate, scrutinize, and discern is difficult if not impossible…leaving me vulnerable to being tossed about by conflicting spirits.
