Divinely loved ones, stop believing every spirit.

Don’t trust every spirit, dear friends of mine, but test them to discover whether they come from God or not. For the world is full of false prophets.

  1. Christ In - Set Man Out! - Darryl Samuels & Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) Is the “set man” principle still applicable to New Covenant believers today? This article may challenge some of our sincerest beliefs.

  2. Doubt of Experience – Column 1; War On the Saints - Jesse Penn-Lewis The doubt of the experience or “manifestation” being of God is actually the initial penetration of truth to the mind, and hence the first step to deliverance.

  3. The Enoch Factor - A Review - Neil Girrard Steve McSwain’s book recognizes the many ills of modern churchianity but embraces a New-Age type of spirituality that will prove far more lethal to those who follow it.

  4. Error; Lords of Darkness - Neil Girrard The spirit of error may be just another name for the spirit of antichrist - its goals and tactics are extremely similar.

  5. False Prophets; The End Time Men - W.W. Fischer It appears the only course for any Christians is to prostrate themselves before God and repent before it’s too late.

  10. The Special Warning to the Church by the Writer of the Apocalypse; War On the Saints - Jesse Penn-Lewis Not everyone claiming to be a teacher is what he claims to be.

  11. Test the Spirits; The End Time Men - W.W. Fischer Any spirit (attitude) that attempts to annul, replace or misrepresent the character and person of Jesus is not the Spirit of God and cannot proceed from God.

  12. Victory Over Satan as a Counterfeiter; War On the Saints - Jesse Penn-Lewis Victory over Satan is by the knowledge of truth, enabling the believer to recognize the lies of Satan, when he presents himself under the guise of light.

  13. 2. Your Father the Devil; The Sons of the Devil - Neil Girrard Anyone who is a tool in the hands of Satan for any kind of divisiveness and destruction or who imitates the arrogance and rebellious nature of Satan is simply a son of Satan, a tare among the wheat.
