Busting False Prophets

January 29, 2016


Read Deuteronomy 13 and 18
 
Last week someone posted a long prophecy of things that were supposed to happen on the 24th including Tsunamis on the east coast and very devastating disasters. None of it happened though someone tried to defend it with the earthquake in Alaska. Well, earthquakes are fairly normal and it did not create a Tsunami on the east coast, which would have been a miracle in itself.

For most of the world it was a fairly calm day so all the hearings of sonic booms and the other things mentioned in the prophecy were pretty much a dud. Hence, the prophets who predicted all this stuff on the 24th are false prophets and should never be listened to again because the success rate of a true prophet is 100%, not even 99.9%, but 100%.  had they left out the date they could have continued on with an it is coming warning, but they added the date and when that date passed without fulfillment their days a prophet/prophetess were ended.

As New Testament saints, we are not to harm them in any way, but we need to avoid them and pay them no heed as Paul says of heretics in Titus 3:10 and mark them as those who cause division with their errors. (Rom 16:17)  So, if your favorite TV preacher or your pastor speaks a word of prophecy that does not happen you should change channels or pastors and warn others so they do not fall into those traps.  Don’t accept a bunch of dancing around the May pole to explain it differently or some other excuse why it did not go down as prophesied.  The clear word of God says if it didn’t happen, it was not of God and that prophet is false.

Deuteronomy 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
22 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.

Does that mean if it came to pass that it is definitely of God?  Not necessarily, it depends on what else that prophet is teaching. If that prophet tells you do things contrary to what God has put in His word then he is leading you away from God to worship a false God or another Jesus in New Testament context.

Deuteronomy 13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Many have followed false prophets into fornication, adultery, suicide and many other sins because that person seemed to be speaking for God.  They had charisma and may even have performed some apparent miracles.  Some of those things have been proven to be sleight of hand or illusion. Others may not be easily explained, but remember the Egyptians could imitate Moses’ rod turning into a snake so not all you may see is of God, but rather of the devil who ministers can appear as “ministers of righteousness.”  (2 Cor 11:13-15)

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

See, they did miracles and yet were not of God. They worked iniquity meaning that which is illegal or unrighteous.

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

We should not be caught off guard because Jesus warned us that they would come and Paul told us that the mystery of iniquity was already working in his day.  (2 Thessalonians 2:7) John told us to try the spirits because of false prophets. (1 John 4:1)

2 Thessalonians  2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

In these last days, you need to be sure you are saved.  The Anti-Christ will put on a great show and unless you are truly a Christian you will be deceived.  Jesus said those signs would be good enough to almost deceive His people if it were not that He would prevent it.  That is why we must be saved and in tuned with God through the Holy Spirit lest we be deceived by the Wicked One.  Are you saved?  Are you filled with the Spirit to have discernment?  Get saved and be filled for dark and evil days are ahead.  Don’t be deceived!   Shalom!  Maranatha!!!
