Discernment Of Spirit

Discernment-Of-Spirit

No matter how great a teacher he is, how powerful he is, how intellectual he is, or how his gift operates, if he isn’t trying to achieve something for the benefit of the Body of Christ, your own spiritual discernment would tell you that that’s wrong. No matter how accurate, how perfect, how it is, it’s wrong if it isn’t used for the Body of Jesus Christ.


To achieve something, maybe he’s got a great gift that he could draw people together with a great intellectual or a spiritual power, that he could draw people together, and maybe he’s trying to take that gift and make himself famous so that he’ll have a big name, so that other brethren will look up to him as some big person. Then that’s wrong.

Maybe he’s trying to—to edify a certain thing here that he wants everybody else to get out of the picture and let him and his group be the picture. That’s still wrong, see.


But if he has a gift of God and he’s trying to edify the Body of Christ, then I don’t care what he belongs to. You’re not discerning the man, you’re discerning the spirit, the life that’s in the man. And that’s what God told us to do.

And IF YOU DON’T COME

RIGHT UP TO THAT,

YOU’RE NOT IN IT.

SEE?

THAT’S THE WAY

THE CHURCHES ARE

TODAY.

YOU’VE GOT TO COME RIGHT UP

and LOOK THROUGH

MY GLASSES

or YOU DON’T

SEE IT AT ALL.

SEE?

Now, GOD DOESN’T

LIMIT HIMSELF

TO ANY CHURCH.

NO, HE DOESN’T.

REMEMBER,

WHEN THE DISCIPLES

GOT TO THINKING

ONE TIME

THAT THEY WERE

THE ONLY ONES,

(P.S. Brother BRANHAM RE-EMPHASIZES.)

THE ONLY ONES,

JESUS,

THE VERY NEXT DAY

SENT OUT

SEVENTY OTHERS.

IS THAT RIGHT?

GOD NEVER

WANTS ANYONE

TO BUILD ANYTHING

AROUND

THEMSELVES.

ALL GLORY

GOES TO

JESUS CHRIST,

THE SON OF GOD.

SEE?

SO WE MUSN’T

TRY TO THINK

OF OURSELVES,

or OUR CHURCH.

WE MUST

SPREAD OUT

OUR ARMS

and LOOK

FOR GOD.

THAT’S RIGHT.
