1. SPIRITS are in two broad classes. One, ANGELS and sundry SPIRITS known by NAME and PERSONAL IDENTITY, “And the ANGEL ANSWERING SAID unto him, I AM GABRIEL, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings” [Luke1:19] Two, SPIRITS having no FORM or PERSONAL IDENTITY, known by mode of OPERATION, as the LYING SPIRIT in I Kings 22:21-22, “And there came forth A SPIRIT, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. ... And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a LYING SPIRIT in the mouth of all his prophets …” [1 Kings 22:21-22] When Satan fell, so did some ANGELS and sundry SPIRITS and were exiled to our world, ‘And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and SATAN, which DECEIVETH the whole WORLD: he was cast out into the earth, and HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM” [Revelation 12:9] Satan and his cohorts are here, scouting for troops to regain what they lost; the first shot was fired in Eden in preparation for ARMAGEDDON, “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the DRAGON, and out of the mouth of the BEAST, and out of the mouth of the FALSE PROPHET. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to GATHER THEM TO the BATTLE of that great day of God Almighty” [Revelation 16:13-14]  

2. TRY THE SPIRITS and know your true identity, “But ye are NOT IN THE FLESH, but IN THE SPIRIT, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the SPIRIT OF CHRIST, HE IS NONE OF HIS” [Romans 8:9] Listen carefully, what we HEAR is determined by the SPIRIT in the preacher and by HEARING of the WORD of TRUTH delivered of FAITH from darkness into everlasting GLORY, “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest BELIEVE, thou shouldest SEE THE GLORY OF GOD?” [John 11:40] If you will enter into GLORY, it is your duty to TRY THE SPIRITS and be sure not to have been sold a dummy, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but TRY THE SPIRITS whether they are of God: because many FALSE PROPHETS ARE GONE OUT INTO THE WORLD” [1 John 4:1] The term FALSE PROPHETS is used here to describe those who handle the WORD of God as bait to fish for SOULS in return for GAIN, “But there were FALSE PROPHETS also among the people, even as there shall be FALSE TEACHERS among you, … And through COVETOUSNESS shall they with feigned WORDS MAKE MERCHANDISE of YOU: …” [2 Peter 2:1-3] Measure your PASTOR and his words on the scale of COVETOUSNESS; if he is always goading you to acquire more of this world than of the world to come, he is a MERCHANT of SOULS, “… and DESTITUTE of the TRUTH, SUPPOSING that GAIN IS GODLINESS: from such WITHDRAW THYSELF” [1 Timothy 6:5]

3. TRY THE SPIRITS, “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that ANTICHRIST shall come, EVEN NOW ARE THERE MANY ANTICHRISTS; whereby we know that IT IS THE LAST TIME” [1 John 2:18] ANTICHRISTS must not be confused with the ANTICHRIST; the former is here and the latter on his way. ANTICHRISTS are as TARES among WHEAT; they are in the Church but were neither in Christ or He in them, “The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels’ [Matthew 13:39] The one who sowed TARES also watered them to bring forth fruits of BLASPHEMY. Their work is to dispute the PERSONAL IDENTITY of God in Jesus Christ with diverse LIES in every age, until the WICKED ONE should come, “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world” [1 John 4:3] ANTICHRISTS hold the line against the TRUTH in their generations, causing divisions and sowing lukewarmness with heretical doctrines of the GODHEAD [Acts 17:29] They foster divisions and denominations in the Church with demonic philosophies of DIVINITY and the FAITH of many are waxed cold by reason vain DECEIT and TRADITIONS contrary to Christ, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” [Colossians 2:8-9]

4. TRY THE SPIRITS, “For WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH and BLOOD, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” [Ephesians 6:12] We are at war against an army of SPIRITS whose modus operandi is DECEIT with ANTICHRIST at the head for final onslaught, “Even HIM, WHOSE COMING is after the WORKING OF SATAN with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should BELIEVE A LIE” [2 Thessalonians 2:9-11] He is in the wings, waiting to be revealed; when it seem present global instabilities will drown the world, he shall take the stage to restore a semblance of PEACE and draw many to himself including many Christians, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” [Matthew 24:24] The ELECT will not be deceived because they TRY THE SPIRITS and shall not be moved or deluded by great SIGNS, WONDERS or the PEACE from hell, “For when they shall say, PEACE and SAFETY; then SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” [1 Thessalonians 5:3] Accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour today, amen
