Jesus Ministries, Joan Boney ...

Is that thought from God? or is it from devils? Here is a simple guideline: Does the thought bring love, joy peace? or does the thought bring fear, doubt, torment? 💥💥💥 Examples: 💥 The thought came: "You're 83 now. What will you do if you get to where you can't walk? You'll have to live somewhere else? What will you do? Where will you go?" I cried out to God: "God ... help me!" Immediately I heard: "God will supply all your need." (Phil. 4:19) "Right!" I agreed! And I rejoiced immediately in that word I heard from God. 💥💥💥 💥 As I considered putting new upholstery on the front seats of my 25 year old car, the thought came: "Or you could just buy a new car." I stopped in my tracks. It struck me like a lightening bolt! Never had I thought of buying a new car. But I could buy a new car. I had just sold the house in Texas and the money was in the bank. I could pay for a new car and have money left over. (If I would have to go into debt, I would not have done that.) And by this information from God telling me that I could buy a new car, I saw that I would not need that money in future, for I knew it was the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking that Word from God to me. This gave me faith to take that action. God even confirmed that information by giving me a dream that same night: In the dream, I bought a new car. 💥💥💥 💥 A 70-year-old man walked into his back yard and noticed his storage building which was overflowing with stuff, and thought, "I need to build another storage building to hold some of my stuff." The thought came: "Why don't you just get rid of the stuff?" (a better way to go) Wisdom from God. 💥💥💥 💥 In 2018, I fell at my house in Texas. The phone was about 6 feet away in the bedroom. I lived alone and no one was scheduled to come to my house for at least a week. I turned onto my side. (terrible pain) and I began to try to inch my way to the phone but the pain was overwhelming. As I was lying there motionless, the thought came: "You can do this." I knew that was the Spirit of God speaking to me. I began moving toward the phone. It took 4 1/2 hours to reach that area but I had heard from God and knew I could do that because God told me I could do that. 💥💥💥 💥 A high school girl was in a country grocery store and a young man came into the store. The thought came: "He's going to be your husband." Is this thought from God? Are both unmarried? or will it take divorce for them to marry? She was Baptist. Does he believe in God? Facts are needed. This turned out to be a "word of knowledge" from God. (I Cor. 12:8) Wynette and Jerry were married for the next 60 years until Jerry died. 💥💥💥 The Holy Spirit will not lead us into evil ... but the devil will. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. If the thought would cause you to sin against God, it is not from God but is from devils and will destroy you if you go that way. I Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, 💥💥💥 💥 A young married woman was attracted to a man at the place where she worked. She did not walk away. She began a "friendship" with this man, though she was married at the time. She ended up divorcing her husband. The devil is looking for people he can destroy. 💥💥💥 💥 A church woman began "entertaining" various fear-filled thoughts, after which she made the following statement: "I no longer care about anyone or anything. I no longer read the Bible or blog. I no longer care about anything." Had she agreed to listen to me, I could have proved that she had taken thoughts sent by devils into her heart and these things were not true for there is no truth in devils. (I Jn. 8:44) She had a little dog, and she greatly cared for that little dog. But she fled me and would not hear anything from me. Later she apologized. Things such as this are the works of devils who want to destroy us. It is easy to see the fruits that came from receiving these thoughts brought evil. We must do what Paul said and take every thought captive. 2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (The Word); 💥💥💥 The devil will destroy us if we allow him to do so and he does this by bringing his untrue thoughts to our mind. James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God (in prayer) . Resist the devil (with the Word of God), and he will flee from you. 💥💥💥💥💥
