How do we test inspired expressions? Test them by the words found in the Bible. For example, not too long ago, I think in 2012 some pastor said that Armageddon was going to happen in October. Many people ended up giving their belongings to this man, blindly trusting him. Now, how could this be tested? The bible clearly states that no one knows the day or the hour. Plain and simple. By obeying and applying bible principles, and praying to Jehovah God we can overcome many of the pitfalls satan 's system bring us.

My believe is that the Holy Ghost in me will reveal all truths , God knows the heart of the subject and the closer we draw to God the more we will deserned the manisfesration of the subject , my salvation was purchase by our lord and savior Jesus Christ the anointing on our lives are earned by the filling of the holyghoast ,we must tap in to this as we hear what God is saying through his people.may we always be careful what we listen to, false teachers will always come around ,seek The Lord in times of need . By praying and listening for the voice of God.!!!!
