False prophets look like sheep

Discerning false prophets can be really difficult for most people, because they are always looking for the “bad guy.” They have a mental picture of some perverse, wicked man with glowing slits for eyes and a cruel grin. Maybe it’s a woman in heavy make-up dressed in a slinky dress with a sign reading “I am Jezebel” hung around her neck.

This is the exact opposite of what a false prophet/prophetess will usually look like.

Matthew 7:15
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

The truth is, false prophets are some of the nicest people you will ever meet!

When I worked for the Elijah List, I had the opportunity to meet several false prophets. With the exception of a few, they were all very warm and caring people. Even to this day, they do not realize that, according to the Word of God, they are false prophets. Their minds simply cannot fathom that their gentle demeanor and “many wonderful works” will not be considered when they are judged in that day.

This is both scary and sobering.

Today’s wolves have no clue that they are wolves! They each look down at the wool clothes that cover their bodies and they think within themselves “I’m a sheep!” – but inwardly, they are full of covetousness and excess. They only crave their next source of “nourishment.”

Jesus said that in that final day, many false prophets would say:

Matthew 7:22b
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?

We absolutely must comprehend this.

  • Prophesying in Jesus’ name will not ensure you a place in the Kingdom.
  • Casting out devils in Jesus’ name will not ensure you a place in the Kingdom.
  • “Doing the stuff” (whether that be miracles or acts of kindness) in Jesus’ name will not ensure you a place in the Kingdom.

At the End of the Age, false prophets will be a group of people who are clueless to the fact that they walked contrary to His Word and His Will. They will think:

I did the works! I healed the sick, cleansed the leper and did many wonderful works – IN JESUS NAME! Surely I’m guaranteed a spot in His Kingdom! He used me to heal!”

But, according to Scripture, they have a rude awakening coming.

Deuteronomy 13 Deep Dive

Deuteronomy 13 Deep Dive – What if they don’t say “Let us go serve other gods?”

Because of the Deuteronomy 13 test, those with opened eyes are trying to discern between “true” and “false” prophets by the signature words “Come and let us serve other gods,” only to be shut down because nobody who claims to be a prophet – not even the worst offender – would say something so heinous.

But is that really the criteria Deuteronomy 13 is telling us to use? Or is there more to the story? … Let’s do a deep dive into this important passage!

False prophets always draw a crowd

False Prophets Always Draw a Crowd

If I see a prophet with a large following, red flags go off in my head right away. Usually, when a prophet is surrounded by many people, it is because the people like what they hear.

Aiding Abetting Antichrist

III. Aiding and Abetting the Antichrist

Most false prophets are unwitting accomplices to a diabolical plan. As they continue to churn out support for a false image of the Messiah, they have no idea that they and their listeners are actually assisting Lucifer in his plan to deceive the world.

  1. I am painfully aware that at any point, that I might get uppity, and that the Lord could place me in that other flock.
    A fellow came to my door – he was wearing a small wooden cross on his lapel – after some conversation, I asked him whether he be a Christian…Yes, he said ….and what church do yo attend? Oh, I don’t go to an organized church. After, I’m thinking, hopefully I am not presently in Laodicea. Take heed lest I fall from where I think I am. Dotting all the “I’s” and crossing all the “T’s” don’t make it so. Us and them can change places in the “twinkling” of an eye.

  2. The only comment I wish to make is that while the texts quoted mean exactly what they say they do not mean that NOBODY who heals, does miracles, and mighty works will not be accepted in the Kingdom, and that is the twist that is most associated with these texts.

    The reason anyone will not be accepted is that they have not allowed the Lord to be their first love. Jesus said I never knew you, the word know being the same word used to express that delightful intimacy between a man and his wife.

    It is the absence of the intimacy that is the reason for the exclusion, not the presence of healing, casting out of demons, etc. This needs to be very clearly understood since there are still people in the Lord’s body who do love HIm with all their hearts but who also ARE PRESENTLY healing, casting out demons, and doing other mighty works.

    Thank you.

    1. You’re absolutely right about the healing part… wait until part 7a and 7b for clarification.

      However, it was the lawlessness-torahlessness (anomia – G458, with the root word anomos – G459) of the people that keeps them out of heaven.

      “depart from me, ye that work iniquity [anomia – G458].”

      The intimacy you speak of can only be found through obedience to His Commands, scripturally speaking (Prov. 28:9, 1 John 5:3). I’m not against supernatural interaction with God by any means, but people who claim to have this intimacy – usually in the prophetic movement – are deluded.

      All the best … and thanks for the comment!

    It is good that you point these simple things out. Acceptance swings with time and right now the religious institutional churches are swinging in the direction of acceptance of any and every thing. They want to be all inclusive at all , build up the numbers via unity. Problem is that God is only going to have a remnant to work with as always.

    Thanks for your posts

  4. Unless I buy your book I can’t be taught your revelation on the subject matter. What makes you different from those you talk about at the Elijah list I do understand that it takes time and material to produce your writings. But true revelations from God should be shared with the body of Christ not sold

    1. Peggy, one of the many the differences between me and the EL is that I offer all of my stuff online for free so that anyone who wants to read the message can do so. This is chapter 1, on the right hand column is a listing of chapters that will keep growing as I release them. Only the physical books and Kindle versions have a price.

      If you’re subscribed to the list, you’ll be notified each time a new chapter is released.

      All the best!

  5. I’ve been reading your excerpts from your book, Prophetic Masquerade, and found them all so helpful. I am very burdened about what is happening re so-called prophets in today’s charismatic churches and it saddens me to witness the deception around me. I was taken in by all that for a time but I grew more and more uncomfortable with the things I heard and saw. I do not want to ever be deceived by false prophet ministries again. Thank you so much for you courage and your research.

    1. You bet, Margie… I really want to encourage you to “dig in” to this series. Yah gave me a TON of scripture to support my claims and I’ve published it for free to help you “never be deceived again” by these false ministries. I hope this series will bless you!

      All the best,
      Kevin
