Most people don’t seem to realize that the devil not only quotes scriptures, he can also preach. That trickster will tell you some things that can make you feel so good you will think it’s of God, and it’s right. That is why as Christians you must know the word of God, so that you can tell what is from God and what is not. Knowing the Word of God allows you to know right from wrong.
Because of the lust of the flesh and eyes, our desires and emotions tend to take off in the wrong directions. That’s the main reason God tells us to seek Him first, His kingdom and righteousness and everything will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). We must realize that just as there are ministers of Jesus Christ sharing the good news of His death, burial and resurrection, the devil has his ministers disputing, falsifying, criticising, and counteracting God’s ultimate and divine plans for His children.
They are called false prophets for a reason, because they are false. As children of God we must be able to identify them, they have been in existence in the days of old until now. Jeremiah 5:30 says,”An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land; the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priest rule by their own power; and my people love to have it so, but what will you do in the end?”
Ezekiel 13, speaks about false prophets and the judgement they will face, but I love verse nineteen; it reads, “And will you profane me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, killing people who should not die, and keeping people alive who should not live, by your lying to my people who listen to lies?” If all God wanted was for us to prosper on this earth with sin, then He would not have sent Jesus to redeem us from the curse of sin.
The new testament confirmation of false prophets and teachers can be found in Matthew 7:15 where Jesus tell us to, “beware of false prophets who come in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.” 2 Peter 2:1 and 1 John 4:1 warns us about them, and if you watch closely you will realize that they are exposed daily. If Jesus should come today, you can’t blame them because God gives everyone spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and discernment, so you better know in whom you believe and trust.
