At Centurion Ministry, we believe that the word of God is the only foundation of truth.  As the bible says, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."  The word of God will never lead us a stray.  However, many wolves will arise in sheep clothing professing to have a word from God.  Therefore, the bible admonishes us in 1 John 4:1 "not to believe every spirit but try the spirits

whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."  Trying the spirits sounds simple enough, but how is it done?  

Isaiah 8:20 put it this way, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."  As we walk through this world, be vigilant and remember that everything that happens is eihter influenced by good or by evil.  There is no middle ground.  There is a spiritual conductor behind the explanation of scripture, wars and rumors of war.  Our responsibility is to try the spirit to see whether it is from God.

There is a war ragging around us and we are caught in the crossfire.  Some do not understand that it is a spiritual war, so we are trying to use carnal weapons to fight a spiritual war.  The bible makes it clear that "we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Eph 6:12

We cannot use what I think, what I believe, brute force or weapons of mass destruction.  No, we will only aid the cause of the deceiver of souls.  He wants to confuse, divide and destroy the citizens of earth.  The Devil is not a respecter of person.  He will use and destroy anyone that will allow themselves to be used.  So remember, we are not fighting against flesh and blood.  The man whom you can see is flesh and blood.  Until we can separate the issue from the person, we are already defeated.  

The spirit of discernment is needed to uncover the devil in the background working thought the things that are seen to stir up strife and confusion.  Zechariah 4:6 reminds us that "we cannot fight this war by might, nor by power, but by God's spirit."

So, let us put on the whole armour of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
