Problems with Today’s So-Called Prophets

Notice though that in the next section, the officials and people came to the priests and spoke on behalf of Jeremiah stating that he did not deserve to die because they said he spoke to them in the Name of the Lord. So, at least some of these people did not believe that Jeremiah was a false prophet or a blasphemer. Ultimately, the Lord was in control.

Notorious False Prophet Says Calling Him a False Prophet Will Invoke God’s Wrath

You can ordinarily watch Mark Taylor blather on with his notoriously wrong prophecies on the television program belonging to the disgraced televangelist, rapist, tax-evader, and felon, Jim Bakker. Taylor is one of the many charismatic prophets, like revivalist and “Holy Ghost Bartender,” Rodney Howard Browne, who have made pro-Trump spiritual prophecies into a cottage industry.

Fake News False Prophets of Yesterday AND Today

The problem is often in what the false prophets say, which is normally against God’s revealed will for this age, the last days. Again, I recall when I was involved in the Charismatic Movement in the 1970’s, I constantly heard this phrase by one invited guest speaker after another: “God is getting ready to do something new!” This was then parroted by the average person in attendance, often with a spirit of anticipation.

Prophets and Dreamers from Deuteronomy

So we learn that there are two categories of false prophets/dreamers. The first in Deuteronomy 13 is the one whose prophesies come to pass but his intent is to drag people away from the living God to error by worshiping other false gods. The second in Deuteronomy 18 speaks of the false prophet who prophesies falsely – what he declares simply does not come to pass. In both cases, we are to avoid that person. We should “mark” them in our minds – make a strong mental note about them – and warn others as well. If we warn others and they do not heed our warning, it is on them.

Something Insidious This Way Grows…

Jesus warns His followers to watch out for false prophets. He was speaking of those who deliberately teach falsely. What is their purpose in being false? These false prophets do what they do for their own selfish gain (2 Peter 2; Acts 20). The Bible treats false prophets and teachers as a reality that will always be with us until the physical return of our Lord and we need to be aware of how they work.

False Prophets and Teachers are Nothing New

Society in Ezekiel’s day as well as Paul’s day was filled with spiritual con artists. It is the same with our society today. Like those of old, today’s false prophet/teacher has no fear regarding what they say because they either honestly believe that they are right (being deceived themselves), or they don’t consider that God sees and hears all things. Though His condemnation of their lies is clear, because His judgment is put off for now, they believe it will never come.

Today’s Prophet Who Comes with Signs and Wonders

The question all listeners should ask when hearing from someone claiming to be a “voice” of God is what is his/her message? Does that message align with what God teaches? Even if their message comes with signs and wonders that appear to be spiritual, but the message itself opposes God’s truth, it must be shunned. In fact, Moses went so far to say that a person who speaks in such a way, even with the presentation of signs/wonders, should be killed.
