How Many False Prophets And Teachers Do You Know?

Matthew 7:15 (KJV), “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

“My son, make sure you don't go beyond our boundaries when cultivating the land”, Chief Chukwudi told Patrick his cousin who just arrived in the village. After hearing this, Patrick cleared a portion, cultivated and planted in it. After some months, one of the Chief's kinsmen came complaining, “Chief, why are you taking my inheritance away from me? Your son Patrick has encroached terribly on my plot of land". “Sorry, I will check", Chief Chukwudi responded. When Chief got to the farm, he found that the complaint was valid so he quickly called for Patrick. “Patrick, didn't I tell you not to go beyond the boundaries?" “Yes, you did, but I didn't know the boundaries, I never knew I went beyond it", Patrick responded. “You're right, you were only a child the last time you visited the village, I should have shown you the boundaries," said Chief.

The blame wasn't Patrick's because he wasn't shown the boundaries. Jesus however warned us about false prophets and teachers and showed us how to know them. So, if you fall prey to them, it will be your fault and not Jesus'.

But why should I concern myself about false prophets and teachers? Someone may ask. You should, because Jesus said, “beware of false prophets".

In Matthew 24:11 (KJV) Jesus says, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many". In Matthew 24:24 (KJV), He warns again: “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" and in 1 Peter 2:1, we saw it being fulfilled; “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you...”.

If Jesus warned you against them, how many do you know? If you don't know any, you're either a victim already or about to be.

Go into today knowing that false prophets and teachers are not included in “touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm". They were never God's anointed!

Prayer: Lord Jesus, just like you warned, help me to beware of false prophets and teachers. Help me not to fall prey to them. Amen.
