when God tells, Is it me or really God?

My wife spoke about someone at TJ some months ago that acted more qualified than everyone, like he was in a different category than everyone. I was shocked because I hadn't heard her speak a bad word about anyone. She hated saying it and said she would never do anything about it and put it behind her. I think about a month ago she had me do an email to someone in authority because while a stay in hospital she again was influenced by what she said THE SPIRIT, about the same person.
A week ago when I went away to a quiet place something strong really strong came into heart about this person. I honestly was so scared because I had never been so overwhelmed about anything like this before. I don't even know the guy that well maybe spoke to him once. I've tried to get it out of my head and just say to myself I am being stupid, but here is my question...HOW DO I REALLY KNOW ITS GOD?
Now I asked my wife what was her concern and she said slowly his ignorance will destroy the innocence of members, well I have witnessed this already with some. I am scared putting this thread in but I don't know what else to do.
i think your doin the right thing mr. popples.
How do you know its God? I think you already do...when God speaks to you you know it, you said so yourself that you were overwhelmed and even frightened, do you think that YOU could cause yourself to feel that way? You just know, and i think you do.
God bless and keep pressing on for he that has begun a good work in you will continue it until the day of christ jesus. :D
Createdtoworship we must be careful when responding with "I think" when it comes to spiritual matters.

Mrpopples, the Bible speaks plainly about how matters like this are to be handled among Christian brethern, and I will post some of the scripture here to help answer your question. When God tells you something, it will never contradict His written Word, and He will also confirm it is Him speaking, likely more than once.
(1Jo 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.)
If God does show you something concerning another brother, it is sometimes just to allow you to be aware theres a problem, so that you may pray for that person, and perhaps so that you may go to them and help that person, but it is never to tear them down in any way.

Mat 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
Mat 18:16 But if he will not hear [thee, then] take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
Deu 19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
1Ti 5:19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
2Co 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
Mr Popples while I dont know your situation I myself am going through something pretty similar and I want to let you know that just keep praying and I agree with Coconut . Joyfully~ Jlu
Mr. Popples, If we allow God reign in our life He takes it and leads us. Sounds to me that Jesus is prompting you to make known your concerns. Seek assistance from a Mod or Chad, we are here to help and continue doing God's work. Sometimes we become unpopular for the decisions we make but we have to look at the best interest of the members on TJ.
God is really amazing when He wants our attention. Follow what He wants Eric, you will have earthly support from here.

Amen coconut. Perfect verses.

Mr.Popples, tell me anything you need to tell me. I am all ears and wish to maintain TJ as the best Christian forums, for GOD's glory not ours
Dear Mr. Popples,

Praise God for His leading you and Popples to Talk Jesus. I had the opportunity to listen to Popple's testimony in Live Chat earlier this year and now your thread, "When God tells, Is it me or Really God".
I am ministered by you folks for your honesty and courage.

Please read slowly the scriptures from Coconut's post to your thread.

I receive many messages from members at Talk Jesus for exactly the same experience you had but in other circumstances. God does speaks to our hearts. I am involved in my community ministries outside of the pc but on the pc have seen how the internet stimulates the wrong motives of anger in people and things someone text/wrote in live chat, including Talk Jesus. Many times persons do not enter a forum or live chat prayerfully so I don't openly get into oppositional discussions out there for these reasons. This bears much patience and prayer.

I just recently shared with someone here that I prefer to go to my brother and sister out of respect to them, privately, to resolve differences, when I feel they are wrong and times when I am definitely wrong.

Mr. Popples, you took a step of faith by sharing with your brothers and sisters. Praise His wonderful name! Be encouraged should this person still be in your heart perhaps you can approach him or her by messaging their personal account if it happens to be here at Talk Jesus.

Your servant in Christ Jesus.
