BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS AMONG YOU


The knowledge of false teachers shouldn’t disarm anyone who was prepared and ready in the first place…this isn’t new to the person who has been in prayer and study of the word…

Look: “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves (Matt. 7:15).

The warning was important because Jesus later said to them: “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; therefore be shrewd as serpents, and innocent as doves” (Matt. 10:16).

The apostle Paul, with a deeply troubled spirit and in tears, penned a similar warning: “I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock” (Acts 20:29).

Throughout church history these warnings concerning professing Christians who deceive even the elect have seldom been taken seriously. How can the church be so easily deceived? According to Webster’s Dictionary “deceive” means “to lead astray or to cause to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid.” Could it be the church has not only lost its ability to discern truth from error but also to discern wolves from sheep?”

The word also says that, “my sheep know my voice,” (John 10:27 ).

There is a stern warning for the leaders of flocks, Pastors and prophets, “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.(Jeremiah 23:1)

So the only ones harmed are those who failed to believe God, the unsaved, and those who just refused to read the word.

  1. I respectfully disagree with you; It does not matter how spiritual (always reads God’s word/in prayer and fellowship) people are when they have encountered false teaching. Someone’s heart will be grieved if/when false teaching begins to penetrate their church, especially when this was not the norm. People can tell the difference and because the Spirit of Christ dwells in Christians, their hearts will go through a grieving season. But thank God, it will not be something they will have to always endure.

    • They will not have to endure because either the church will come back to her roots, or Jesus will guide that one (the person grieving) out of that church to a fellowship where Christ is being honored. Thank you for reading my input. Blessings to you!

  2. Hi Nancy thanks for responding, I must add that we hope that our spirits would be grieved; however, many spirits are not. Notably, someone likes those words thrown out to scratch their itching ears, and in a case like that they might ignore the spirits prompting and urging them to back away. We must also know that all are not meant to recieve the word that saves, and that all are not ordained or destined to glory( Revelations 21). We would like to see all come to full knowledge of Christ, but sadly this is not the case; otherwise, there would be no hell. Additionally, God say that many will say on that day ‘Lord, I cast out demons in your name and he will say, ‘depart from me, I know you not.’ Why is that? They were wolves. Ezekiel says, I send you to an obstinate stiff necked people but whether they accept (the truth) or reject, they will know that a prophet has been among them. I add also you will know them by their fruit…keep your eyes open.

    Thanks for sharing, much love to you!
