Be Warned: Some Prophets Lie With “Thus says THE LORD…” — 7 Comments

  1. 1 John 4-6
    4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. 4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

  2. Amen to this, brother Jacob!  I think much of the problem of well-meaning people giving false words is that we have not properly learnt how discern between the soul and the Spirit. This is why prophecy should always be judged, although judgement is often wrongly suspended because of the status of the prophet. 

    I recently heard someone say that we take the Lord’s Name in vain when we claim that He has spoken when He has not. This is often dismissed as a “missing it”, but it really is more serious as a breaking of the second commandment.  I believe this will be solved when the fear of the Lord comes upon the church.
