Prophetic Conference – Personal Wisdom and Discernment

Tuesday January 7, 2014

The end of things is at hand (1 Peter 4:7). There is a convergence of what God has said and what the devil is doing. What have we learned in the last twenty-five years? We’ve learned about the spirit of wisdom (Ephesians 1:17-18) and wisdom (what is needed when a problem comes up, and you don’t have an immediate solution). Jesus became for us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30). We’ve learned how to be led by the Spirit (Romans 8:14; Galatians 5:18). We’ve learned about the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16). We’ve learned about the gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12, 13; Hebrews 2:4). Here the struggle is, are we off the path or are we needing to break through something that the devil is hindering? Can we walk in discernment, personal Christian discernment, which is not the gift of the Spirit, and is resident in each one of us? Especially now, we need personal discernment because of seducing spirits and doctrines of demons. We need alertness and awareness in God to perceive what God is saying. This can save your life. To discern is to recognize or identify as distinct what is of the soul or of the spirit. Be cautious of people who try to give you their dream. Find out the will of God. To discern also means to separate what’s of God, what’s of this church or of this group. Furthermore, it means to distinguish, compare, like weighing things out on a scale, to perceive, to discriminate. If we know the real God and truth, we will be able to discern the false and counterfeit. Have you become dull of hearing (Hebrews 5:11-14)? Are you choking on solid food, or can you discern good and evil? We must become masters of the sword of the Spirit, the Word. Paul’s perception saved lives (Acts 27:10). There are lost, unlearned, and ignorant people. Do you live the Word? Experiences are the lowest level, then come our prayer life, meditation in the Scriptures, and spending time with God, and then being sensitive to God. The Word of God is above His name and is an eternal constant. (Prophet Cohn shared how the Lord reveals things to him that connect and direct him to minister. There were many other Scriptures confirming the teaching.)
