How do you know?

A lot of people talk about this person says to praise God this way, and that person says you have to do this; how do you know what is good and right? You look I n His Word!
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.  You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.1 John 4:1-4
There are really a lot of people in the world today that seem really to know what God is saying, but how can they all be right? How do you discern between truth and fake?  Well, I was taught that you check it with the Word of God. If it lines up to what God has in His Word then it is the truth, if it goes against God’s Word then it is against God. You cannot stand for and against God so if someone is telling you a lie, well, you know where that comes from! Another way to know if someone is speaking the truth is if they are filtering it with love; God being love of course would only send a word that was laced with the love of God Himself. In other words you will know Him and His words by the truth, peace, hope and love that flow from the person.

If they do not have love, they are of God. If we do not have love we do not know God.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.  He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.  In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 1 John 4:7-11

This is the way that we know what love is, and if we know what love is then we want to share that love, the love of God. In other words we want to share God with others every day, every moment all the time. You know when you love something or someone you want to tell everyone!
Okay then, we speak the truth in love, God is love, so we speak the truth in God via the Holy Spirit. If the person speaking does this, our spirit will identify with His spirit and we will know it is the truth.

That was a lot of meat! Take it and chew on it a while then go read the book of 1 John.
Think on these things!
Be blessed, be loved, be full of renewal and hope; In Jesus’ name!

Heavenly Father thank you for Your Word that we may know the truth through it, that we may know You, In Jesus’ name amen.
