An Eye For The Spirit-Part 22

He said to me, “Brother Beuttler, what did you think of my prophecy?” I wanted to keep him guessing, so I simply said, “Nothing.” That didn’t really answer him. He said, “What do you mean by ‘nothing?’” I said, “I mean nothing, nothing.” Then he said, “You mean, you didn’t accept my prophecy as authentic?” I said, “Of course not.”
He rebutted, “I want to tell you, that was the Lord. I spoke in the Name of the Lord. Oh well, never mind now. I had it in for a fellow, and I wanted to give him a good piece of my mind in the Name of the Lord, so I put it in the form of a prophecy.”
Well, you get those things. They had them in Paul’s day, but that does not mean that we should despise prophesying. We should not reject the good because of the false.
I do not know if you, in New Zealand, have counterfeiters of New Zealand dollars. I suppose you do. I guess they’re everywhere. We have them in the States. Time and again you read in the paper, “Million dollars worth of counterfeit $20 bills are in circulation.” There is the real and the fake.
But pursue the Holy Spirit! Have an eye for Him!
