People often ask me why I am so convinced that the modern day prophetic movement is a false and/or deceptive movement. Let me tell you…
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. Read More
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. [Read More]
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. This lack-of-fulfillment nullifies the validity of their claims of hearing from God accurately, and places them in the category of “the rebellious.” Unfortunately, what the Bible and our own common sense will tell us often takes a back seat to man-made reasoning and absurd rationalization.

False prophets and their followers love to convince those watching that the Holy Spirit is moving upon them by putting on an outward show of jerks, quakes, nonsensical phrases and other odd “spiritual manifestations.”
Sometimes, the show is an outright lie – they are completely faking it. At other times, an actual spirit is pulling the strings. And sometimes it’s a little of both. Trying to discern just what is going on can be pretty difficult.

Have you ever sat and listened silently to a prophet or prophetess expound upon what seemed to be the latest of an endless series of dreams or visions? Were you tempted to question the veracity of their encounter(s), only to be silenced by echoes of “touch not God’s anointed” coursing through your mind? Believe me, I have. Let me tell you what God’s Word has to say about false prophets and their dreams and visions.
How can we tell if a dream or vision is from God? Are there any scriptures in the Word that we can go to for verification? In this post, we will apply scriptural criteria to real life examples and test if the dreams and visions are really from God or are the result of “another spirit.”
The relationship between a false prophet and a sinful nation hasn’t changed in over 2,000 years. Sinful people instruct the prophet to speak what they want to hear and the spineless prophets eagerly oblige.
Taking on the nature of their father, the false prophets will arrogantly claim to be enlightened ministers of the Gospel. They want you to think that they are people who have tapped into the spiritual resources of the heavenly realm, but no matter how hard they try, authentic prophecy always seems elude them.
