KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 7:15 KJV, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
One sign that shall characterize the end of time, is the prevalence of false prophets. Who is a false prophet? A false prophet is one who says what God has not said. Well, this is not the only criterion for one being false, the Bible reveals certain more qualities that would make one a false prophet. The Lord said a false prophet is known by the fruit he bears. His actions are at variant with the word of God. The fundamental fact about e real false prophets is that he does not have any relationship with Jesus. Mat 7:18 KJV” A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” The Lord has said it right, a bad man cannot produce good fruits. The main issue is not about a mistake he made when he prophesied but whether Jesus is indeed Lord of his life.88
The main issue about a man who has not really got any relationship with Jesus, is his priorities about life. The focus about such a man is not about souls, it is not about bringing people into heaven, but his desire is how well men think of him. He thinks more about the number of cars he should have. Phi 3:18 KJV” (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)” These ministers mind earthly things. A minister who cannot forgive is opening a door for demons to easily enter his life. A false minister will use the pulpit to settle scores with people he or she thinks he has a problem with.
There are some false prophets who there seem to be nothing wrong with them. The word is, there seem to be nothing wrong, yet Jesus said if the person is false, it will be shown in the fruits he bears. The real error seen in such people is about their love for Jesus. Love for Jesus means putting Him first. A false prophet will definitely project other things other the Lord Jesus and His word.
Dear child of God these teachings are supposed to shield you against falsehood. Don’t focus your attention on finding faults where there is no fault. If there is something wrong about a man of God, which is not visible to the natural eye the Holy Spirit would expose it if it is that necessary, but don’t go around looking for faults if there is non
Father I pray that your Spirit would help anyone living in falsehood to be set free from the deceptions of the enemy. Open our understanding to see those who have given themselves to the devil to deceive many and anyone they come across.
Deutronomy 18:22 KJV” When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.”
