Discernment. It’s so important these days. I guess no more important than in the early days of the church, when the apostles warned repeatedly about false prophets, false teachers, false apostles and false doctrine.

Although these topics are a running theme in the New Testament, one thing I don’t see too much about is false manifestations of the Spirit, such as barking. I was recently watching some YouTube videos where believers were barking like dogs and others were shaking their heads back and forth so violently that I wasn’t sure how they remained upright.

Brothers and sisters, everything that looks supernatural is not of the Holy Spirit. The devil has counterfeit signs and wonders and they are manifesting even in the church! Ask the Lord to give you discernment so that you can recognize false manifestations of the Holy Spirit. Don’t be deceived in this hour.
