Do They Have God's Spirit?

OUR Lord Jesus Christ said –

’ MOREOVER if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16) But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ 17) And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.’ – Matthew 18:15-17, NKJV.

With a heathen person or a tax collector, you sure don’t want to be around them.

In almost ALL cases – by confronting these people within the church, you will find that they are very nasty in their response when presented with your issues concerning them.

They get all PUFFED-UP and offended!

Vanity shows up.

Do you realize why!?

Well, because you’re NOT confronting a brother or sister in Christ – in the FAITH! Instead, you’re dealing with a very carnal person who is using the church as a social outlet. There are some who use the church as a boardroom to work against each other! Or, they work to get others on board with their own ideologies and philosophies.


Ask yourself – do they have God’s Spirit!?

Do they display God’s Spirit!?

Do they show godly love!?

Are they a joy to be around!?

Are they a peaceful person!?

Do they exhibit long-suffering towards others!?

Are they kind!?

Do they display goodness towards others!?

Are they committed to the faith!? – which is shown by how they live in accordance with the WORD OF GOD!

Are they meek and humble!? – or, do they display vanity and self-absorption!?

Do they have self-control!?

If they do – then THEY ARE your brother or sister in Christ!

If not – you’re dealing with a regular everyday person who is proclaiming to be a Christian – a carnal-minded person – who does not have CHRIST in them. They are NOT a true Christian. Thus, they are not your brother or sister in the faith.

So, in that case, you do NOT have to apply to the instructions given by our Lord Jesus Christ. You're dealing with just a carnal-minded person, and you know the results will be bad.


Because our Lord Jesus Christ said – you (being a TRUE HOLY SPIRIT LED CHRISTIAN) will know them by their fruits.

They will display what they are all about.

YOU (as a TRUE CHRISTIAN) must know who is who by testing the spirits – or rather, identifying the spirits of God’s Spirit, as opposed to the spirits of Satan the devil.
“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. 2) By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3) 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.

4) You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than [Satan] who is in the world.” – 1 John 4:1-4, NKJV.
IF you see a spirit in them that you know is NOT of God’s Holy Spirit, then you must NOT address them as Jesus Christ instructed us to address a fellow servant of Christ’s.

You would only be addressing a servant of Satan the devil.

They are a plant of Satan the devil of whom is their god. And, yet, they will deny this. But that doesn’t change the fact that this is what they truly are.

Personally, I have witnessed this often in “church” settings. Rarely there do you actually find true Christians.

I have gone to people in the past that I believed had gone against God and addressed it with them, only to find them puffing themselves up against me in vigorous rebellion!

Those that follow Satan the devil believe they are smart, but only come off as fools to a true Holy Spirit-led servant of Christ Jesus.

A person with God’s Holy Spirit may appear naïve or unintelligent to the world, but they are far superior when it comes to having God’s living TRUTH abiding within them.

So, before you go to someone within a church setting that you feel is offending in a Christian Way – test the spirit. Because you may be dealing with a disciple of Satan the devil who has crept in unaware into God’s Church. It has happened many times.

My personal manner in dealing with Satan the devil’s disciples is to simply disconnect from them.

To cast them from my life.

To have no more to do with them.

To fully reject them.

Thus comes PEACE!
