False Prophets and False Doctrines
1 John 4:1 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Matthew 7:15 – Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Yes the false prophets can and will come in sheep’s clothing.They will portray to be loving,soft spoken,innocent but inside will be full of hypocrisy and jealousy.
Mark 7:6-9 – He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with [their] lips, but their heart is far from me.
Some may honor GOD with their lips but their heart is far away.Man looks at the face,God looks at the heart.
Bible says in the last days falling away must come first.Many believers will fall away(even without their knowledge)from Faith and the Truth.Compromising with the world.Taking the Love of GOD for granted.GOD is a GOD OF LOVE but a GOD OF JUSTICE TOO.
LORD JESUS is coming back to take away HIS Prepared church,the bride of CHRIST to a prepared place(HEAVEN).
Jeremiah 23:26 – How long shall [this] be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, [they are] prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
Yes this is another trait of false prophets,they do tend to speak lies,yes in order to deceive others and their own hearts.
But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
Yes false Prophets do presume that God speaks to them but it is not so,in order to please men,they lead many astray.
13 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own mind and heart, Hear the word of the Lord!
3 Thus says the Lord God: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit [and things they have not seen] and have seen nothing!
4 O Israel, your prophets have been like foxes among ruins and in waste places.
5 You have not gone up into the gaps or breeches, nor built up the wall for the house of Israel that it might stand in the battle in the day of the Lord.
6 They have seen falsehood and lying divination, saying, The Lord says; but the Lord has not sent them. Yet they have hoped and made men to hope for the confirmation of their word.
7 Have you not seen a false vision and have you not spoken a lying divination when you say, The Lord says, although I have not spoken?
8 Therefore thus says the Lord God: Because you have spoken empty, false, and delusive words and have seen lies, therefore behold, I am against you, says the Lord God.
9 And My hand shall be against the prophets who see empty, false, and delusive visions and who give lying prophecies. They shall not be in the secret council of My people, nor shall they be recorded in the register of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter into the land of Israel; and you shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord God.
10 Because, even because they have seduced My people, saying, Peace, when there is no peace, and because when one builds a [flimsy] wall, behold, [these prophets] daub it over with whitewash,
Yes the false Prophets may encourage others by saying Peace but when there is no peace.Bible says when people will say Peace Peace then sudden distraction will come on earth.
My friends its not that there is or will be no peace but when we Prophesy out of our own will and don’t seek God before Prophesying we can mislead people in order to make them happy.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.-2 Peter 1:21
True men of God were moved by The HOLY SPIRIT,so True Prophets are HOLY (Holy in thoughts,Tongue,actions,eyes,ears),and it is only The HOLY SPIRIT who can move to Prophesy.
Prophesy is a Gift of The HOLY SPIRIT.So my friends HOLY SPIRIT is our Helper.Let us seek The HOLY SPIRIT who is our Refuge all the time.The last days will reveal both the True and the false ones provided we are filled with The HOLY SPIRIT and if we have intimacy with our Father.
In the last days Bible says that there will be false Prophets,false Teachers,false Apostles…
There will be false people in the world(outside the church) and in the church as well.The Supernatural really excites the people and seem to be very attractive.Therefore satan will use it as his weapon,if possible even to deceive the elect.
This has been happening in the Bible over and over again.If we read the time of Moses going to Pharaoh at the command of the LORD,there were Egyptians (magicians)who initially performed the same miracles.Then we see the hand of the Almighty GOD Jehovah coming upon Moses and the Israelite’s in an unusual and a powerful way that even the enemy gave up and acknowledged the move of God.
Similarly in the New Testament Acts 8,Philip was being used by THE HOLY SPIRIT to shake the surrounding cities of Jerusalem but at the same time there was a man named Simeon who also performed great signs,wonders and miracles who was highly esteemed by all the localities there.
But the Power of God exceeded Through Philip and changed everybody there including the sorcerer Simeon.
In the last days the book of Revelation says In Rev 11 The Two Prophets from Heaven Elijah and Prophet Enoch will appear performing the Great signs,wonders and miracles.At the same time Rev 13 says that false Prophet and the beast are going to perform miraculous signs among the people.
Even the elect are going to be deceived.
Second Peter 2:1-3 “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.”
So the above verses teach us that false Prophets and false teachers will be among the people who will bring in destructive doctrines misguiding the people.They will be denying the Master that is LORD JESUS CHRIST and HIS teachings.These days we see it happening in and around many churches where the very teachings of LORD JESUS CHRIST are denied especially those before going to the CROSS.They prefer the teachings of JESUS following the Resurrections or the Teachings of Apostles like St Paul.
LORD JESUS said in Matthew 24:24 that false prophets and false messiahs will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive,if possible,even the elect.”
Bible says You shall know them by their fruits…If a person’s life style is not changing and is still following the mannerism of the world and has no sacrifice or to be obedient or willing to sacrifice then it means his/her gifting needs to be checked.The counterfeit will attract many multitudes but GOD will raise up HIS True warriors and Prophets to Equip the Body of CHRIST and edify them so as to come to the stature of LORD JESUS CHRIST(Ephesians 4:11 on wards).
GOD wants HIS people to be transformed into the image and likeness of LORD JESUS CHRIST.
We are certainly living in the last of the last days.This is the final Generation God willing and the final hour.Our Precious LORD JESUS CHRIST is coming back very very soon.Sooner than we think.
In the recent days God has been powerfully speaking to The Prophets regarding the coming times and the events about to take place.Some do take heed while other people think that this has been going on for years.There are some who are mistaken and think that God is not a GOD of Judgement.My friends let us remember that yes GOD is a God of Love because GOD HIMSELF IS LOVE but at the same time HE IS A GOD OF JUSTICE.Bible states that if the days were not shortened(regarding coming events)even the elect will forsake GOD.
The WORD OF GOD says that in the last days many new doctrines and teachings(heresies)are going to come up drawing millions away from the True Knowledge of LORD JESUS CHRIST.They will deviate from the path of The LORD JESUS thinking that they are absolutely correct.Many will follow them.
The WORD OF GOD is balanced.If we carefully read the four Gospels that is the words of LORD JESUS CHRIST OUR FATHER we will realize that there was not even a single topic that HE (JESUS) didn’t preach or teach.
From Repentance to Baptisms,From Kingdom of GOD to KINGDOM of HEAVEN, HEAVEN or hell,marriage issues,The coming events in Israel,Prophecy,The CROSS,RESURRECTION,Second Coming of LORD JESUS CHRIST,JUDGMENT,LOVE OF GOD,THE FRUIT,GRACE,GLORY,TRIBULATION,PERSECUTION,FAMILY LIFE,,CASTING OUT DEMONS,SPEAKING IN TONGUES,PROSPERITY,AUTHORITY,SIGN,WONDERS AND MIRACLES,FINANCES,TITHES,PRAYER,THE WORD OF GOD,WORSHIP,HEALING,THE GIFTS,THE FATHER,THE HOLY SPIRIT,DISCIPLESHIP and much much more.
But in the last days the deception has and shall increase as per the WORD OF GOD.People will follow an EASY WAY to reach HEAVEN.LORD JESUS said that in order to follow LORD JESUS CHRIST Self Denial is the first step followed by Carrying our own CROSS.
The false doctrines and false teachings and false prophets and false Apostles have entered in the church.
The warfare was won on THE CROSS by OUR FATHER LORD JESUS CHRIST but the spirits of hell have been unleashed to fight against the CHOSEN ONES.The spirits of baal,python,serpents,leviathan,dragon,basilisk are few of the many that are blinding even the believers.
Our denial cannot and won’t change the TRUTH.Our ignorance regarding satan’s devices are working as devil’s weapon.
The coming days will see how the world will tremble at the coming events.The disaster would have been averted if the church was walking in OBEDIENCE to the LORD and also knew the nature and the voice of GOD.We cannot interpret the scriptures according to our convenience.Some people discard the Old Testament thinking that it is the Old Covenant.Some reject the law of Moses not understanding the WORD Rightly.
My friends JESUS in OLD Testament is Concealed and In NEW Testament is Revealed.Without The Old Testament we cannot understand the NEW Testament.Some follow the Epistles and ignore the very WORDS OF LORD JESUS (what JESUS Spoke before HE was CRUCIFIED).
My friends this is the delusion of the devil,rejecting the words of Our LORD JESUS CHRIST.We cannot just take a WORD and make a Doctrine out of it.
We need the Gift of Discerning and the Discernment and The Prophetical Anointing that will give us the Grace necessary to walk with GOD by the Help of THE HOLY SPIRIT in these last days.
Our HOPE is in our LORD JESUS CHRIST.
