How to Judge Revelation for Dreams, Visions and Prophetic Words!
By Colette Toach
Why this Deception Checklist? As a Christian, judging revelation is of the utmost important to prevent deception from leading you and other astray from the true purpose the Lord has for you.
No matter what revelation you receive or
what revelation others give you to interpret, before going anywhere you
must check their revelation against the following points in this Deception Checklist. If the
revelation even has one of these points proceed with caution and further
check the revelation against the Word.
person felt fear when they received the revelation or dream.
- When the revelation was shared, the
person receiving was made to fear.
- The dream/revelation condemned and accused,
thus causing the person in question to feel depressed. This kind of
condemnation is NOT conviction as it does not motivate the person to
action, but rather makes them withdraw and regress. (Brings death)
- The dream/revelation was pushy, demanding that
action was taken immediately!
- A revelation that overrides a person’s
will. Anything they do not have control of is not of the Lord as the
Holy Spirit is a dove and does not override the will of man.
- The revelation was received through very
loud words. A strong voice, a strong forceful vision or dream.
- Anything that veils its identity is not
of God. If an angelic being appears, not showing its face and pushing
the person to receive from it, then it is not of God. The Lord and His
angels are always open-faced. If such a being appears it is an angel of
light and should be told to leave in the name of Jesus.
- A revelation that brings confusion and
doubt is not of the Lord. If a person is thrown into turmoil, once again
regressing and not motivated to positive action, then the revelation was
not of the Lord or perhaps even shared in the wrong season.
- If the revelation is not based on the
Word. Sometimes we have just accepted certain symbols to mean certain
things – but take NOTHING for granted! Check every single symbol and
direction with the Word of God and see if it lines up. I recommend a
good Bible concordance. If you can get one on CD for your computer, even
better, because you can then look up scriptures all having the same
- Above all else discern the spirit on the
revelation by the gift of discerning of spirits. If you get a knot in
your stomach, feel uneasy or simply feel a ‘no no’ in the spirit, then
proceed with caution. However if you feel comfortable positively
motivated and a ‘yes yes’ in the spirit then the Word is of the Lord.
Following these simple steps on this Christian Deception Checklist, will help you in Judging Revelation correctly according to the Word which is our Standard.
