Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves.Matthew 7:15
Marriam-Webster dictionary defines BEWARE as to be on one’s guard. Among the things Jesus told us to expect before His Second Coming are False Prophets. It is a biblical prophecy and nothing could be done about that. John said “Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.” 1 John 2:18.
In Matthew 24:11 Jesus said “And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.” NLT. I believe their purpose is to deceive many in these last days. These False Prophets are men and women who have allowed themselves to be used by Satan to work against God’s Kingdom.
Jesus is the truth. There is no lies in Him. He represent Light and no darkness can be found in Him. The truth hurts sometimes but I believe that is all we need to be Set Free. The scripture says “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” John 8:32. Most people, including believers, don’t want to be told the truth. They easily become offended when someone preaches the truth. And since the church now acts like a free trade society, they easily switch to where they will hear what they want to hear. This has made their (false prophets) work very easy because people now troop to their auditoriums to listen to their lies without having to invite them. They are everywhere; on TV, radio, magazines, Internet, on streets, offices, etc. they have enough resources, and partners so their voices could easily be heard all over the world.
For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:3 NLT.
Friends, it is becoming very difficult to distinguish between the good prophets and the false ones. Jesus added they come to you dressed like sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves. They stand behind he pulpits as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves.
They perform signs and wonders as good prophets, but inside they are devouring wolves. They quote the scriptures, but preach otherwise. Jesus says “BEWARE”. Be on guard for they are deceiving many. “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24.
These guys want to satisfy their own selfish desires. They have commercialized the Christian Faith to their own selfish advantage. Such people are not serving Christ our Lord; they are serving their own personal interests. “By smooth talk and glowing words they deceive innocent people.” Romans 16:18. They live luxurious life in the name of God’s blessings while the members suffer. “In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money.” 2 Peter 2:3 NLT.
Here is what Paul has got to say; “These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 NLT)
Jeremiah 23:16 “This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD”
We can identify them by their fruit, That is by the way they act. Good tree produce good fruit, but bad tree produce bad fruit. By what they preach, act, etc, we should be able to identify who a false prophet is. Friends let us take time to study the word, and practice what it says because once we know the truth, nobody can take it away from our hearts and it will set us free.
Jesus is coming soon. The reward for these false teachers will be their place in the Lake of Fire.
I pray God directs our path as we await the Second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS!
Hi De Preacher, I’m sorry I have not visited you for awhile but I have read your Posts in my Inbox and agreed with your message but like with some other Bloggers Posts, I did not get time to leave a comment.
Very True what you said, I have also Posted a few messages about false Prophets and how to recognize them and it is indeed very important that we do and this is confirmed in Scripture. I have found though many who teach have been deceived or are Trusting in their own fleshy understanding or others and so they are not False Teachers but still very much in error and deceiving others.
We know that the signs and wonders False teachers do are counterfeit, they use tricks, lies, illusion but they can seem very convincing and of course their focus is to deceive others for money and power. We know for example only God can heal as all good things come from Him, Satan cannot do good only evil.
We can also recognize false teachers deception by how they use the Scriptures, they are out of context, twisted added to or important parts left out or claimed not to be genuine. The Scriptures also tell us in 1 Corinthians 2:9-16 they do not know God’s Truth , they cannot understand it as they as do not have God’s wisdom and they don’t Trust in Jesus our only Teacher to lead them into all Truth by the empowering of The Holy Spirit and they don’t want to, they also continue to have bad fruit because they do not put their flesh to death by The Spirit.
Mostly false and deceived teachers only share what supports their lies or as they have been deceived, as an example they say there is No Condemnation in Christ Jesus, so regardless of the wrong you do you are forgiven because you are a Christian and Born again but what does the Scriptures really say ( see below) the Romans verse is one that they will then say when you correct them, is not accepted in the cannon of Scripture, which is not supported because it is confirmed in the rest of the passage and lets never forget it is not man who is to accept or reject what should be in the Scriptures, it is God who inspired them, if their there they are of God unless it is a man made Translation to deceive, which will be shown by those Scriptures that have been changed or added to or words taken out, to confirm their false teaching.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.
1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
Well I could continue, there are many examples but you would have to publish my comment as a book but thank you for letting me share De Preacher, I will look forward to receiving more of your Posts.
Christian Love from both of us – Anne.
God bless you so so much. You have said it all.
I always thank God for raising us to stand for the Truth.
Your comment is very powerful. I will read it over again.
God bless us!
