God told you what?

Did God really tell you to do that?  If this is so, why doesn't it jibe with his holy word?  God doesn't contradict himself.  Is this God talking to you or your flesh, or some other spirit?  We must test what we 'hear' by scripture before we attribute it to him.  Though God does speak to his children regularly, we must be careful not to reference his name with something that he didn't say...even if it 'feels right'.  To do so would be taking his name in vain.

When we compare what we are hearing directly to scripture - we'll either discover enlightenment through correction or enlightenment through an even deeper tier of meaning to what was heard.  It's a win/win situation to test everything...and it's the right thing to do.

Do not quench the Spirit.  Do not treat prophecies with contempt, but test them all hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.
-1 Thessalonians 5:20-22.

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirit to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
-1 John 4:1

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
-2 Timothy 2:15

I have hidden the word of God in my heart so that I may not sin against you.
-Psalm 119:11

What we feel we hear can be confirmed with scripture.  Instilling his word in us, is an app that filters out a lot of deceptive and godless junk-mail.
