Listen to the voices, claiming to be holy, Father. Listen to them professing the unbiblical as truth. They speak ‘peace, peace’ to the nations where there is no peace. Your people are persecuted. Scoffers abound. Your people are in physical danger. Your people are in spiritual danger. The arrows of the enemy fly toward the heart of your message. Give us discernment to know your Truth. Assist us as we weed out the false prophets. Show us the spirits that come against us that we can rebuke them in your name, Lord. Just as Michael deferred judgement to you when he argued with Satan over the body of Moses, let us direct the battle to your mighty right hand. We overcome only by your name and mercy, for greater is he who is in us than he who is in the world. You are our refuge. Ensconce us in your impermeable hedge of protection. The victory is yours, Lord. The glory and honor are yours alone. I pray in the precious name of Jesus the Christ, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God.” (1 John 4:1-3 ESV)
