“We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
—1 John 4:6
“They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.”
—1 John 4:5
One of the most puzzling situations this writer encountered as a new Christian was the utter contempt for God’s Word in the churches.
Men who preached from the pulpits, those who taught and those who claimed to be evangelists all dismissed or outright ignored any Scriptures which they could not answer. There was not even an attempt at reconciling Scriptures which didn’t agree with their ungodly stands.
As this writer grew in the Lord, this situation became not only puzzling but disturbing.
“How could someone who claimed to be of God casually dismiss God’s Word?”
1 John 4:6-7 explains how those people in the churches could trample on God’s Word.
“They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
One of the ways for the true believer to pick up on counterfeits in these times in which we live.
“Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.”
“He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.”
Just another bit of preparation necessary for the believer wishing to survive the end times.
