False prophets speak presumptuously

False Prophets Speak Presumptuously

If we combine all of the information from both the Word of God and our own dictionary, we can safely conclude that a presumptuous prophet is a person who boldly speaks a “word from God” that does not come to pass.

False Prophets Won’t Have an Original Thought

Taking on the nature of their father, the false prophets will arrogantly claim to be enlightened ministers of the Gospel.

False prophets and the Unwitting Wolf

False Prophets, Fruit and the Unwitting Wolf

False prophets at the End of the Age are people who probably have the best intentions. They may genuinely believe that they are doing God’s will and have the signs and wonders to back up their claims! But when it’s all said and done, the miraculous signs and wonders are not God’s “Seal of Approval” on their lives and ministries.

1 Corinthians 14 prophecy

New Testament Prophecy – Understanding 1 Corinthians 14
