Our reminiscence verse for as we speak says “Watch out for false prophets”, so it isn’t a brand new factor that we’ve false prophets as we speak. They’ve all the time existed. As a matter of reality, as we get nearer to the second coming of Christ, they may enhance in quantity. So-called prophets who’re truly nothing however magicians will multiply because the years go by. Nevertheless, the Lord stated clearly that by their fruits you shall know them – not by their so-called miracles, not by their indicators and wonders, however by their fruits. In Matthew 7:16-18, Jesus Christ goes additional to say that you simply can’t collect grapes from thorns. He stated tree will solely carry forth good fruits. In different phrases, if they’re His prophets, then they may solely bear good fruits. If you happen to see them bear any dangerous fruit, then they aren’t from Him. What are among the dangerous fruits to look out for in a false prophet?
Greed is one dangerous fruit which you can simply spot in a false prophet. Any prophet who tells you to carry cash so he can prophesy for you will not be from God. If he tells you to offer him cash due to a prophecy he has already spoken about you, he isn’t from God. Our God will not be grasping, so if the prophet is bearing the fruit of greed, he isn’t from God. Some so-called prophets will even let you know to offer them your automotive in order to get some non secular advantages. Inform them that you’re a little one of God too and God has spoken to you. In (2 Peter 2:three), Apostle Peter says:
And thru covetousness shall they with feigned phrases make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a very long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
One other fruit they bear is that of worry. They all the time try and put worry into your coronary heart. They use worry to regulate their victims. They know that when they let you know that doom is coming, you may be able to do something to avert it. If you happen to see a prophet who all the time prophesies doom, run from the guy. A real prophet, even when he sees doom coming will pray for it to be averted. If he tells you the prophecy in any respect it’s in an effort to pray additionally. He won’t search to place worry in your coronary heart however to encourage you to wish in opposition to the upcoming doom. He would even favor that the doom is averted and he’s referred to as a false prophet than for the doom to come back after which be boasting concerning the accuracy of his prophecy. (2 Timothy 1:7) says that God has not given us the spirit of worry. Concern is a spirit and it’s from the satan; anybody who’s ministering the spirit of worry to you is from the satan.
PRAYER POINT: Father, give me the spirit to discern in order that henceforth, I will establish false prophets Jesus’ identify.
