Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Friday 27th August 2021
The Word of God is truth you can’t know the
Word and be deceived or follow the wrong
voice. 1 John 4:1 says, “Beloved, believe not every
spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out into the
world.” Always, there’s a light in your spirit when you
know the Word of God such that you’re not misled
by false prophets, false teachers, and false brethren.
One of the ways that many are easily misled is
through wrong associations. If as a Christian, you
start associating with certain individuals who aren’t
supposed to be in your “aion” (your course of life)—
individuals who have a doctrine or training that’s
inconsistent with the teaching and truth of the Word—
you’re definitely in a wrong direction.
With time, such people could become your
advisers, and before long, your language will change.
This is how many are motivated or inspired by the
spirit of error, and they go into error. The Bible says,
“We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us
he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know
we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error” (1 John
4:6). Stay in the truth!
The Apostle John was so concerned about God’s
people knowing and walking in truth. In 2 John 1:1, he
said, “The elder unto the elect lady and her children,
whom I love in the truth and not I only, but also
all they that have known the truth.” God wants you
walking in the truth because as read in our theme verse,
many deceivers are in the world who don’t confess that
Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. They acknowledge
neither the incarnation nor the resurrection of Christ.
To confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh
means making confession to this truth, living a life that’s
worthy of this truth, giving glory to God. So, in these
last days, walk in truth. John says, “I have no greater
joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” (3
