“Confirmation” is a Demonic Trap by PAM SHEPPARD

21 May

Assumptions are constantly made by Christians who believe that “the 3 witnesses rule” is an indication that a sign, wonder, message or circumstance is “a confirmation” from God.

Confirmation! Its a twelve letter dirty word that covers a wide field of consideration. In fact, Satan and his crew get many chuckles out of this one.

There are so many varieties of “confirmations” that it is hard to present one representative example, so I’ll have to make one up.

You had a dream that you should move to Georgia. Or perhaps someone
from your church prophesied over you—“God has called you to
minister in Georgia.” The same day, you heard Ray Charles sing,
“Georgia on my mind.” Then someone called you on the telephone
from Georgia, but it was a wrong number. In the afternoon, a friend stopped by
and gave you some peaches. Georgia peaches.

“So there it is” you say to yourself. I got 3 signs or
witnesses that provide “confirmation” to my dream or prophetic
word. God wants me to move to Georgia.

I use such a ridiculous example to highlight what foolish believers
do constantly. The “confirmation” thing is nothing but
an assumption, not based on fact, not based on truth.
When God sends a message, He does not have to confirm it. He may, or He may
not.

Have you ever been duped by “confirmation?” I HAVE! LOL Many times.

If you believe that God has spoken to you about a particular situation, yet are still confused about your sign from God, you may be hearing from the devil and not God. Contact Rescue to find out why: 518-477-5759 or rescueonfb@icloud.com

    Right before I came into Rescue, I was getting heavy into signs and wonders, and was planning on attending those IHOP meetings. I am so glad God pulled me away from that!

      I’ve attended an IHOP event in ATL a few years ago. When I look back and think about what took place at the event, I was better off going to a circus. I now realize that was not the Holy Spirit

    Yes, many times too much! I’ve always went by signs and never once thought that the enemy was behind it. I remember going through ssomething and all the signs were there for me to move ahead. I felt like I had the green light. Once I moved ahead based on the confirmations, everything went wrong. It was like God disappeared and I was in a mess by myself. I think the enemy did that so I would hate God although I didn’t know I was separated from God. I said and asked myself.. Ok, something is not right… Where did those thoughts/confirmations come from??. … Why am I in this mess if I thought God confirmed it??. The outcome was full of confusion. I had to do a self-assesment.

      Yes Sherrie. I was a big confirmation person also! LOL the trick works best with those believers who are most sincere. They really want to see signs of God moving in their lives so rather than try the spirits, they just assume that “it must be God” when in reality it was the enemy masquerading as God.

        Come to think about it, not one church I was a member of ever talked, teached or preached about trying the spirits.

          I agree, Sherrie. You were to just assume that what was going on was from God. That is a very bad habit religious folks have. They attribute every supernatural experience or situation that happens in their favor to being from God.

          And they won’t because they don’t know how.
