Jeremiah 23:16 False Prophets--don't Listen To Them.

 

Jeremiah 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not to the words of the prophets that prophesy to you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.

We are responsible to stop listening to the prophets that prophesy lies.  Many of these are in the church.  We also need to stop listening to the secular prophets on the news shows and in the movie theaters.

  • False prophets:
    • Acts 13:6 "And when they had gone through the isle to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:"
    • 2 Peter 2:1 "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction."
    • Mark 13:22 "For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect."
    • Matthew 7:15 "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
    • Mathew 24:11 "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."
    • Mathew 24:24 "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
    • Luke 6:26 "Woe to you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets."
    • Isaiah 44:25 "That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;" KJV, "who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense," NIV
    • Jeremiah 50:36 "A sword is upon the liars [false prophets in NIV]; and they shall dote: a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed."
    • Jeremiah 23:21 "I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied."
    • There are many other such Scriptures.

Let God be true and every man a liar.

Apostles are given the responsibility of protecting the entire flock of God from the attack of the enemy, but with so many voices in the world, each one claiming to be the one that should be listened to, how can you know? You are responsible to be close enough to God so that you can tell the difference between false apostles and real apostles.

Read the complete definition of "Apostle."

God restored the gifts of the Spirit and apostles & prophets to the church since 1948. Counterfeits and false gifts abound, but the real is still real.
