What spirit do you have? How to accept Jesus?

Previously, we learnt that one’s ‘hearing’ God would show one’s ‘belonging’ to God (John 8:47). ‘hearing’ God or not was the test to know where one belongs.

Today, let us learn about another test to know where the spirits are from.

I. How to test the spirits whether they are from God

1 John 4:1 says,

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.

See 1 John 4:2-3.

This is how you can recognise the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

If the spirit you have makes you resist or refuse to believe Jesus, that spirit is the spirit of antichrist.

II. How to accept Jesus

First, let us know how near He is. See Revelation 3:20 and Romans 10:8a.

20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

8a But what does it say? ‘The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,’

Accept Jesus by believing and confessing. See Romans 10:9-13.

if you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, ‘Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.’ 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

An example of confession of faith is written in Matthew 16:13-20.
