7 Signs Of A False Prophet

Sermons

#1 Denies the deity of Jesus
1 John 4:3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

#2 Teaches contrary to what Jesus taught.
1 Timothy 6:3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

#3 Has the love of money
1 Timothy 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
1 Samuel 2:7 The LORD makes poor, and makes rich: he brings low, and lifts up.

#4 Try To Steal God’s Glory
Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

#5 Has a hidden agenda
Deuteronomy 13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke unto you, and he says, Let us go after other gods, which you have not known, and let us serve them; 3 You shall not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God is testing you, to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

#6 Speaks smooth
Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
Lamentations 2:14 The visions of your prophets were false and worthless; they did not expose your sin to ward off your captivity. The oracles they gave you were false and misleading.

#7 Hypocrite
Matthew 24:51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

(We know we are in the presence of God when we are in fellowship with one another; who share in our same love for Jesus Christ, and have a Testimony in our heart.  Walking in the same faith as Jesus did for God while He was here!  Anyone who is not sharing their faith in walking with the power of Jesus, and spreading His pure love!  They are not in fellowship with the, “One True Messiah; Son of the True Living God” They are walking in the Spirit of the false prophet!)
