Home Discernment


NO NEED to be apologetic about being discerning, it's a divine mandate (Ezekiel 44:23; Matthew 7:15-20; 1 John 4:1).  It's through the eyes of a pure heart that we discern (Matthew 5:8; 7:1-6, 16, 20; 13:16; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18, etc.). Discernment comes after repentance: "Then shall ye return (repent), and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not." (Malachi 3:18) We often hear the excuse that people are just blinded that's why they do what they do or believe what they believe. No, they're deliberately unrepentant and therefore evil because they've rejected Christ and are therefore blinded. Blindness is the reaping of rebellion. The LORD says He removes the veil that blinds and grants vision and discernment only to those who truly turn their hearts to Him in true repentance (2 Corinthians 3:14-18). Study 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 if you are truly ready for a changed life and kingdom perspective. Is your pastor specifically teaching you to discern? According to Ezekiel 44:23, what are godly men to teach? "And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean." (Ezekiel 44:23) 2 POINTS of DISCERNMENT: Two simple things to look for: 1. King James Bible, 2. NON-OSAS. Those who use a corrupted new version of the Bible and/or teach OSAS (once saved always saved/ES = eternal security) are "blind guides" and leading others into the ditch of delusionment (Matthew 15:14; 23:16, 24). "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." Matthew 15:14 "And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?" Luke 6:39
