Messiah warned us about false prophets that are to come in the latter days, he emphatically stated that, they will be false teachers and false prophets since they are Anti-Christ in nature, for they come to us in sheep clothing but inwardly they are wolves and we have to be aware of them. So who is a false prophet?
False prophet is one who falsely claims the gift of prophecy or divine inspiration, or to speak for God, or makes such claims for evil ends. Through this description of false prophets, we won’t still know whether they are/not unless we stick in to the Bible for the Bible to tell us much about the manner, method and motive in which they prevail themselves to us. For doing so, we will be able to know them better.
“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time, their judgement has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.”
2 Peter 2:1-3
When we abandon God’s words and disallow the words/scriptures to interpret itself to us and we stand on our own ideas in the scriptures, the result is that, wrong doctrine is been introduced perhaps false teachings by false prophets with their false prophecies.
“Now the spirit expressly says that in Latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron.”
1 Timothy 4:1
All these tells us their manner, method and their attitudes of which they come about. If we Christians detest to read the Bible, then this is what will actually happen to us then.
Notwithstanding, the false prophets and teachers are working presently, they are mostly found on our television set (TV), on our radios and on mass media in general. So we have to be watchful as the Bible says;
“For false Christ and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible even elect.”
Mat. 24:24
So no wonder if they are able to do much signs, wonders, miracles, and so on, and even message of salvation are silent for them to proclaim the second coming of YAHSHUA.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirit, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
1 John 4:1
Hence the spirit of the Lord will help you know the truth and you are going to be free from these falser prophets.
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32
The only way that can help you to know the truth is to abide by the words of YAHWEH. Let his words direct you, meditate on it, speak on it but pray before reading it for the spirit of the Lord to take you through for you to understand it proper.
