How can we tell if spiritual guidance is from God? And how big of an issue is this for those of us who have a background in the new age or occult? Should we be open to guidance through the Spirit and if so, how can we evaluate it? In this video I talk about supernatural guidance, what is of God and what is not. And how we can tell which is which.
Who is the Holy Spirit? Why is working with the Holy Spirit such a good fit for ex New Agers? In this episode I take a look at the mystery of the Holy Spirit through a S.O.A.P. Note Bible Study on Romans 7:5-7. This verse can be found in the One Year Bible reading for July 22, 2018 and is written out below.
When we were controlled by our old nature, sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. 6 But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit. Well then, am I suggesting that the law of God is sinful? Of course not! In fact, it was the law that showed me my sin. I would never have known that coveting is wrong if the law had not said, “You must not covet.” Romans 7:5-7 NLT
