When the Holy Spirit became part of the believer, the ability to test and 
prove those things came to being.  It may be the reason GOD provided it for 
his people.

Anyone who says he is a Christian and doesn't have the quiet voice that 
confirms or rejects these things, may not be a Christian.  The gift of Holy 
Spirit was given to every believer.  Most people who don't understand it call 
it conscience, I think.  Denying the Holy Spirit is one of the tests that a 
believer is a believer or not a believer.  That is made clear in the New 
Testament many times.  it is the very reason I feel such intimacy with GOD and 
Jesus.  It is the primary confirming reason I believe that Obamah is dark side.  
Pilosi is another.  If I ever met her in person, I believe I would feel the 
need to take a bath immediately thereafter; I would feel very unclean.  There 
are many like them.  I have personal acquaintances that do not test with my 
spirit that call themselves Christians.  It is the Holy Spirit that keeps me 
from accepting them as brother.
