The Spirit of God
The Spirit of God works in the hearts of men to bring to remembrance the words of God.
Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Many 2x2s report that they are troubled by a spirit. They believe that this spirit is of God. But it's very interesting that this spirit that they talk about is particular to the cult and not to Christians. The things that this spirit "reveals" to them does not match the teachings of Jesus Christ.
What's even more interesting is that 2x2s are troubled by and make decisions by this spirit. But when these same people are showed the Word of God, they have not reported being troubled. In fact, when the Bible is showed to them clearly, they quit emailing, quit writing or quit taking phone calls. Some even get violent at the presence of people who love the Lord. Some even will become violent with their own parents. I certainly do believe that there is a spirit present that causes the 2x2s to do things, but it is not the Spirit of God. And because this spirit does not like the Word of God, I don't believe it is the Spirit of God, but an evil spirit.
We can see from this that it reminds us of what Jesus said. It does not remind us of doctrines of devils.
1Jn 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 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. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.Questions:

|To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.|
