4 Types of False Prophets Christian sermon Bible preaching
In Matthew Chapter number 7 there I want tofocus on the part beginning in verse 15 where the Bible reads, quot;Beware of false prophets,which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shallknow them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistlesé Even so everygood tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Agood tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Whereforeby their fruits ye shall know them.quot; The part that I want to focus on is in verse15 there where he says, quot;Beware of false prophets.quot;
Specifically I want to give you tonight fourtypes of false prophets that are in the Bible. Go if you would to 2 Peter Chapter number2. God gives us certain examples of false prophets in the Bible that typify the differenttypes of false prophets that we're going to deal with in 2015 or at any time. Sort oflike God gives the seven churches which are in Asia as examples of the types of churchesthat can exist in any given place or given time. There are also examples of false prophetsgiven that will help us to identify false prophets in our day.Now look at 2 Peter 2:1. The Bible reads, quot;But there were false prophets also amongthe people, even as there shall be false teachers
among you,quot; There's no doubt about the factthat they will be among us. That's why he said, beware of false prophets, they willcome to you in sheep's clothing. It will not be obvious that they are false prophets, butthey will be in disguise. They will seem like good people and it's easy to be deceived bythese people because they seem like great people, but inwardly, they're ravening wolves.That's what Jesus is warning us about. He says, quot;They shall be among you.quot; They werethere in the Old Testament, they're going to be there in the New Testament, they'rearound in 2015. He says that these people, halfway through verse one there, it says,quot;who privilyquot; privily means secretly, privately,
quot;shall bring in damnable heresies, even denyingthe Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.quot; These falseprophets aren't just going to come right out and just openly deny the Lord, but they'lldo that privately, they'll do that secretly. They will come in with subtly.The Bible says in verse 2, quot;Many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom theway of truth shall be evil spoken of.quot; He's saying these people will give Christianitya bad name because so many people will follow them that it will cause people to speak illof the way of truth. quot;And through covetousness, shall they with feigned words make merchandiseof you.quot; Feigned words means that they're
saying things that they don't even believe.When you feign something it means you're faking. It's pretty much the same thing as faking.With feigned words, it's with things that are fake, they say things that they don'treally believe or don't really mean. quot;with feigned words they'll make merchandise ofyou: whose judgement now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.quot;Flip over to Jude, just a few pages to the right in your Bible. I'm not going to takethe time to prove this, but it is very obvious to anyone who's read these books even a fewtimes that 2 Peter Chapter 2 and Jude are parallel passages that are just hand in glove.They fit together, they talk about the exact
same subject, they even bring up a lot ofthe same things in the same order. It's good to put these two side by side and comparethem. Look at verse four of Jude. quot;For there arecertain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained of this condemnation, ungodlymen, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our LordJesus Christ. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though you once knew this, howthat the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyedthem that believed not.quot; The reason he brings that up is that thesefalse prophets, these men who creep in unawares,
3 Facts to Spot the Fakes False Prophets Exposed Jeremiah 271415 Devotional Bible Study
Bible MunchBible Devotional Bible Study Bible Lesson 3 Facts to Spot the Fakes: False Prophets Exposed In Jeremiah 27:1415 The King was surroundedby false prophets, so he was warned: â€œIt is a lie that they are prophesying toyou. I have not sent them, declares the LORD.â€� You know, it's a scary thought to thinkthat some people we have around us to give us biblical advice, are actually feeding us lies. From Church pulpits, to YouTube personalities,how do we know, who to trusté
Here's 3 Facts to Spot the Fakes: First: They lie about Sin.Sin is serious. Isaiah 59:2 but your iniquities have madea separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you sothat he does not hear. When the topic of sin is conveniently ignored,sugar coated, or redefined to be acceptable. Stay away. 2. They lie about the Gospel:The bible is clear about how we are saved.
We are saved, by Grace through faith, in JesusChrist alone. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death,but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. If anyone tries to add anything to that, likeworship on a certain day, or pray to a certain saint, or perform any kind of service to Godâ€¦ Stay Away. Last, but most important. They lie about Jesus:Jesus is God.
Referencing the Trinity, John 1:1 In thebeginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Referencing his deity, Jesus Says, in John10:30 â€“ I and the Father are one. Thomas when he's confronted by the risen Christ,says, John 20:28 â€“ â€œMy Lord and my God!â€� Jesus is not just a man. He is not just a Prophet. He is not an angel. Jesus is God.
If anyone says any different. Stay Away. Remember: Be careful who you listen to:Use God's word to fact check their word. That's today's Bible Munch.
