    The Bible on False Prophets

    The Old Testament


    The True Prophet Hears From God Through Dreams:

    Num 12:6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

    The True Prophet Preaches Repentance And Obedience To God's Law

    Jer 23:21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
    Jer 23:22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

    Jer 26:4 And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you,
    Jer 26:5 To hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up early, and sending them, but ye have not hearkened;
    Jer 26:6 Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.

    Jer 35:15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.

    Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

    Defining The False Prophet And Their Fate:

    Deu 18:20 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.
    Deu 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
    Deu 18:22 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.

    Jer 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

    The Motivation of the False Prophet Is Money:

    Micah 3:9 [NIV] Hear this, you leaders of the house of Jacob, you rulers of the house of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right;
    Micah 3:10 [NIV] who build Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with wickedness.
    Micah 3:11 [NIV] Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they lean upon the LORD and say, "Is not the LORD among us? No disaster will come upon us."
    Micah 3:12 [NIV] Therefore because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets.

    Jer 6:13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
    Jer 6:14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
    Jer 6:15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.

    Ezek 22:25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.
    Ezek 22:26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they showed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
    Ezek 22:27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.
    Ezek 22:28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered mortar, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken.

    Many People Actually Prefer False Prophets:

    Isa 30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:
    Isa 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
    Isa 30:11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
    Isa 30:12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:
    Isa 30:13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.
    Isa 30:14 And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.

    Jer 5:31 The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?

    The Fate Of False Prophets And Those Who Follow Them:

    Jer 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
    Jer 14:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
    Jer 14:16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

    The Prophecies Of False Prophets Do Not Always Fail:

    Deu 13:1 If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a miraculous sign or wonder,
    Deu 13:2 and if the sign or wonder of which he has spoken takes place, and he says, "Let us follow other gods" (gods you have not known) "and let us worship them,"
    Deu 13:3 you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul.
    Deu 13:4 It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.
    Deu 13:5 That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he preached rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery; he has tried to turn you from the way the LORD your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you.

    The New Testament

    Wonderful Works Are Done By False Prophets In The Name Of The Lord:

    Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
    Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
    Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
    Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
    Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
    Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
    Mat 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.
    Mat 7:22 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?
    Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity [lawlessness].

    False Prophets Will Be Numerous, And Very Successful:

    Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
    Mat 24:12 And because iniquity [lawlessness] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

    2 Pet 2:1 [NIV] But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
    2 Pet 2:2 [NIV] Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
    2 Pet 2:3 [NIV] In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

    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.

    Many Prefer The False Prophet:

    2 Tim 4:2 [NIV] Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction.
    2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
    2 Tim 4:4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

    True Prophets Are Always In Harmony With Other Prophets Of God And Scripture:

    1 Cor 14:32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
    1 Cor 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

    False Prophets Work Impressive Miracles That Deceive:

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

    Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

    Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
    Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
    Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
    Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
    Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

    Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    Powerful!

    Powerful!

    I embrace every bit of this.

    I left some of my favorites and most of all that is important to me is this:

    Many People Actually Prefer False Prophets:[/COLOR]

    Isa 30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not
    hear the law of the LORD:

    Isa 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy
    not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

    Isa 30:12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise
    this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:

    Jer 5:31 The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority,
    and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?​


    WHAT WILL YOU DO IN THE END?

    When Moses who came along there were times when his own people wanted to kill him. When Jesus walked--who Moses prophesized to be The Great Phophet--he was Crucified and shouted against by his own people. When Jeremiah prophesized, he was severely persecuted. Daniel was thrown in the lions den. John-the-Revelator was banished to the island and persecuted...When Paul prophesized and manifested the Holy Spirit, he too was severely persecuted.

    My feelings are that most people already have an unction and already know the truth about certain things and this is why when someone comes along and professes truth and an upcoming judgment upon a suppressive system they resist vehemenently. They have become comfortable living in their sin and have made excuses and in so doing, they support and have become the very backbone of the evil system of suppression and become the lukewarm sinner. But what will they do in the end?

    Therefore, most people loathe true prophets[tesses].
    True prophets are always persecuted but God knows...prophets of this earth are human too and God's got their back. Christ, the son of God, came to this earth and suffered on the cross in the flesh.

    Many people overlook the fact that when Moses, the deliverer, manifested and when Jesus, the Savior, manifested, they came forth during a time when powerful governments were judged, and many of the so-called victims of slavery were also judged. Many Hebrews went down for the count during the time of the Exodus after they crossed the Red Sea and also after the Crucifixion. It is for the most part, THE NEXT GENERATION THAT WILL EVENTUALLY BE BROUGHT FORTH THAT THE CREATOR GOD WORKS WITH TO DO HIS WILL. If you agree with a system that suppresses you why should God deliver you!? It makes no sense at all. Therefore as in the past only a few strong souls of the 3rd & 4th Generations of a government usually stick to the truth and gain the privilege to partake of a great fresh start in life...

    The road to redemption is narrow and few there be that find it. We need to know how to beat the odds.

    Jehovah don't need us but we need him!

    Again this is Powerful!

    I so hope i get the opportunity to share this with others even in my Church.

    When you put this out:

    False Prophets Will Be Numerous, And Very Successful:

    It immediately reminds me that Jesus, the very Son of the living God was not rich, wealthy and materialistically prosperous! Even though Jesus and other prophets such as Moses had gotten power to bring plagues and do wonders such as walk on water and etc. eventually, they became persecuted for doing right. This is the opposite of False prophets who become successful for doing evil.

    2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound
    doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a
    great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.​

    Ha! So prophetical. :court:

    awesome. thanks.

    False prophets, and false teachers are, in these days, the world over. It's very crucial that the faithful remain watching at all times, so they don't fall into a trap and so that their brother and sister don't fall either, since we should be looking out for each other.

    We should keep faith in the Faithful One that died for us, not men who don't not uphold righteous. We should believe in the One who was resurrected the 3rd day as prophesied, not men who refuse to uphold the truth. For the Son, Beloved of the Father, has taught us what we need to be like He is, and has given us a faith which cannot be taken away by carnal hands. He has spoken to us prophecy in the Name of the Father, and any word against His are wicked and wrong; so keeping that in mind, knowing who is false shouldn't be too difficult.
