24 Ways to Discern Genuinely born-again Christian believers |How to detect a Believer in Christ| - 2

 

In my previous article, I enumerated seven biblical ways to identify genuine Christian believers. I encourage you to read the article if you have not read it. Development in technology, science, and advancement in fashion and lifestyle has become a blessing and, at the same time, a barrier to many people on earth.

Today, we find it challenging to differentiate Christian believers from unbelievers because we have ignored some truths in life. I would have become a Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist, or belong to any other group if I had been born into a specific tribe.

Glory to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords that I was born into a Christian home. I thank the Holy Spirit for helping me to continue in the faith. Probably I would be in a different field serving strange gods but thank God I belong to the Kings of Lord and Lord of Lords (Jesus the Christ).

I should have been dead by now because of the attacks I receive in the realms of the Spirit. Christ Jesus and the holy angels always protect me from demonic monitoring spirits and plans of wicked human beings.

Child of God, it is a great thing to serve the Lord. Joining the kingdom of God and building it with the seed of the Holy Spirit is a great privilege. Use your energy, resources, and time to advance the kingdom of God, and you will receive uncommon blessings.

I planned to write some of my principles in writing books and articles. However, my previous article forced me to write this article. Request my book on how to write and publish books; I have laid down some fundamental foundations of writing, publishing, and a few marketing channels.

You can connect with my message on youtube for more wisdom keys. So, in this article, I will share seven biblical keys to discern true Christian believers. We have many wolves in sheep clothing nowadays, and it takes wisdom to detect the true vessels of Christ Jesus.

Most people pretend in church services and various social gatherings. If you are not full of the Holy Spirit, some people can deceive you that they are Christian believers while not born again. Even in the time of Job, it was recorded that Satan was among the angels of God.

Satan stood in the presence of God because he had a report. This should alert you that Satan and his minions can also come to church. It doesn’t matter how beautiful or anointed your church is; the devil and his cohorts can enter and cause trouble.

It takes wisdom and discernment of the Holy Spirit to detect the true children of God. Check out my article, the 45 types of Christian believers, for more profound revelations. A vessel needs the wisdom keys in this article to grow in the Lord and escape the enemy’s trap.

Become a blessing by sharing the link to this article on your social media platforms and other channels available. I have a lot to write because I have laid down several foundations, drafts, and outlines of articles and books on my phone, laptop, and journals.

Remember me in prayers so I can write and publish the right article and book at the appointed time. As I stated at the beginning of the article, I wanted to write a different article. However, my previous article pushed me to write this article. Below are some of the biblical ways to detect genuine Christian believers.

 

1. Real Christian believers have power over the devil and his minions.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1 John 4:4 KJV

One unique characteristic of Christian believers is that we have uncommon power and authority over the devil and his minions. I learned that power is delegated authority. The other way round should be an authority is delegated power.

The choice is yours. You can choose the best definition of power and authority. We have levels of power and authority, and one of the best powers we can possess in life is spiritual power. Some people use their money as a source of power and authority.

Others use their position to dominate others. Some people use seduction, physical strength, psychology, advanced knowledge, and several ways to control others. As I stated, spiritual power is the greatest because the spiritual world has greater control over the earth realm.

Do you know that Satan and his minions have some powers? If you disbelieve in this truth, get my book. Should we fight for more profound revelations? The truth is that Satan and his minions control the unbelievers in several ways.

I know some unbelievers use charms and several sacrifices to control some demons. However, they are limited in power because higher demons dominate the lesser ones. Genuine Christian believers have dominion over all demonic strongholds.

True Christian believers do not fear the devil and his cohorts. It is unbelievers that fear Satan and his minions. In my series of books, dominating the enemy's systems, I have enumerated some master keys Christian believers can use to walk in victory.

Unbelievers are slaves to the demons, but Christian believers are kings over demons. Christian believers do not fear when the enemy comes upon them because they have the greater one backing them.

However, unbelievers walk and live in the curse, fear, and bondage of the devil because they do not have the backing of the Holy Spirit and angels of God. Anytime you encounter someone that always expresses fear in the presence of demons, analyze that such a person is not born again or is a baby Christian believer.

True Christian believers challenge the devil and his minions in the face with no fear. Every demon submits to the commands of Christian believers. Halleluiah! Meditate on this holy scripture for more profound revelations.

 

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

 Luke 10:19 KJV

 

2. Real Christian believers worship God in Spirit and truth.

the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

John 4:23-24 KJV

When the woman of Samaria encountered Christ Jesus, she received a revelation. This woman had a belief that God was worshipped in temples built by men. Well, she was telling the truth, but, in our time, Christ Jesus has made us understand that we (his children) will reverence him from the heart.

Many people claim to be Christian believers but do not have time for the Holy Spirit. Genuine Christian believers know that the actual temple is the heart, so they keep the place pure. True Christian believers do not defile the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Genuine Christian believers worship God with understanding. Unlike the unbelievers who only worship God with their lips, mind, and body. Unbelievers glorify God to prove a point, but genuine Christian believers glorify God with a grateful heart.

Genuine Christian believers are more concerned about the inner temple than the outer temple. However, unbelievers are more concerned about the outer temple than the inner temple. Like a graveyard, the casket may look beautiful; deep within the casket are full of disgusting odors and worms.

Genuine Christian believers prepare the inner temple and work on the outer temple with the help of the Holy Spirit. They allow the Holy Spirit to have His way in their life. Whatever they do, they do it unto God, not unto man. Check out my book, how to worship God in Spirit and truth, for more profound revelations.

 

3. Real Christian believers obeys and follow the teachings of Christ Jesus.

While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother

Matthew 12:46-50 KJV

Christ Jesus had a call from his earthly mother (Mary) and siblings whiles ministering the Word to his disciples. When Christ Jesus heard that his family needed him, he replied that his real family is those that do the will of the Heavenly Father.

If you read the scriptures carefully, you will understand that Christ Jesus teaches us some important discipleship lessons. The fact that you were born into a Christian home does not mean you are a genuine Christian believer.

The fact that your family is the leader in the church does not mean you are a Christian believer. The fact that your father, mother, uncle, or close friends are pastors does not mean you are a Christian believer.

The fact that you attend church or play an important role in the church does not mean you are a Christian believer. Genuine Christian believers do the Heavenly Father's will, and what is the heavenly Father's will? The Father's will is to obey and follow the teachings of Christ Jesus.

 

If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John 14:15 KJV

Genuine Christian believers value the teachings of Christ Jesus above any other teachings. Anyone that willfully and consistently rejects the teachings of Christ Jesus is not a Christian believer. Meditate on this holy scripture for more profound revelations.

 

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

2 John 1:9 KJV 

 

4. Anyone that boldly confess Christ Jesus as his Saviour and Lord of his life is a real Christian believer.

Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.  

1 John 4:15 KJV

No man can serve two masters faithfully. He will be unfaithful to one in his dealings. These are the words of Christ Jesus (See Luke 16:13). Genuine Christian believers have no other God apart from Christ Jesus, and we know Christ Jesus talked about the mystery of the trinity (See the book of John in the Holy Scriptures).

Some people do not believe that Christ Jesus is God Almighty. Others believe that Christ Jesus is a prophet and one of the holy angels. Genuine Christian believers do not categorize Christ Jesus as a prophet or a holy angel.

Christ Jesus is God Almighty. He is the Son of God in the trinity. I encourage you to read the Athanasian creed for more profound revelation. Although a section in the Athanasian Creed states that the catholic faith is the only way to salvation, I cannot entirely agree with that statement.

So, in summary, genuine Christian believers confess with their tongue and heart that Christ Jesus is their Saviour and Lord of their lives, and the confession reflects in their daily activities. Is Christ Jesus the Saviour and Lord or your life?

 

5. Real Christian believers know the voice of the Holy Spirit.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

John 10:27-28 KJV

Genuine Christian believers can distinguish the voice of evil spirits, the voice of the human soul, and other external voices from the voice of the Holy Spirit because they belong to God. As Christ Jesus said, His children hear his voice and follow him.

This means people who do not hear the voice of Christ Jesus (the Holy Spirit) are not children of God. Genuine Christian believers follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. They have an assurance of eternal life.

True Christian believers have the good nature of sheep. They are humble, leadable, meek, wise, intelligent, and obedient to godly authority, unlike unbelievers who have the bad personality of goats, wolves, and other wild animals.

Christ Jesus knows the real vessels in the body. You may claim to know Christ Jesus, but does He know you? If you are a genuine Christian believer, Christ Jesus, the Heavenly Father, and the Holy Spirit bear witness.

Other true Christian believers full of the Holy Spirit can identify themselves with you because of the inner workings of the Holy Spirit.

  • Do you hear the voice of the Holy Spirit?
  • Do you follow the voice of the Holy Spirit?
  • Do genuine Christian believers identify with you?
  • Do you have a conviction of eternal life in your heart?
  • Do the Holy Spirit, Christ Jesus, and the Heavenly Father bears witness of you?
  • Do you have the characteristics of a sheep?

Meditate on this holy scripture for more profound revelations

 

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Romans 8:14 KJV

 

6. Real Christian believers are peacemakers.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Matthew 5:9 KJV

One unique personality of genuine Christian believers is that they have a peaceful and humble atmosphere. You feel special when encountering true Christian believers because they carry a presence.

Unlike unbelievers who cause trouble anywhere, genuine Christian believers portray a godly attitude that sparks unity and growth. True Christian believers promote peace because they are one with the peacemaker (the Holy Spirit). Are you a promoter of peace or conflict?

 

7. Real Christian believers are full of good deeds

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 25:31-40 KJV

If you study the above scriptures with the mind of the Holy Spirit, you would understand that Christ Jesus was describing real vessels in the body, and we can see the characteristics of genuine Christian believers.

  • Genuine Christian believers have the features of sheep; whiles unbelievers have the nature of goats.
  • Genuine Christian believers help people emotionally, psychologically, financially, spiritually, socially, and physically as we can see from the holy scriptures (feeding the hungry, visiting those in prisons, visiting the sick, clothing the naked, and helping strangers).
  • Preaching and teaching the Word is another way of feeding the hungry (those who lack the Word).
  • Interceding for others is another way of clothing the naked, delivering those in prisons, and healing the sick.

Genuine Christian believers do these things from their hearts.
