According to WIKI; Discernment is the ability to obtain sharp perceptions or to judge well. In the case of judgement, discernment can be psychological, moral or aesthetic in nature. Within judgment, discernment involves going past the mere perception of something and making nuanced judgments about its properties or qualities.
(in Christian contexts) perception in the absence of judgment with a view to obtaining spiritual guidance and understanding.
We all need DISCERNMENT & all need to know how/when/where/why to use it.
According to Pastor Darby, Discernment is not being suspicious, it’s a inner-witness to what’s coming behind a person. It’s the gift of discerning the spirit that is behind the person. The flesh can’t recognize the spirit someone comes in but the spirit can if you’re blessed with the gift of discernment.
- Ask someone what you want?
- Ask yourself; what season am I in? If you know where you are than you can better discern why they are there
- MUST KNOW: everyone is sent — either from the devil/Satan or from God
- Satan comes with the same trick but with different faces
