Deuteronomy 18:21-22

Deuteronomy 18:21–22 (ESV): “21 And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the Lord has not spoken?’— 22 when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.”

Jesus said, “Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people (Matt 24:11).” This is a promise. Pay attention to what is said and watch to see if it comes to pass. This will identify the True Prophet (Jesus) from the false.

God promised Israel a prophet like Moses. He was speaking of Jesus. The people of Israel were to be looking for Him. At the same time, God warned His people of false prophets. Those who would speak presumptuously under the premise of being God’s voicebox. How could they know who was who? All they had to do was watch and see if what was said came to pass Easy peasy! The “True Prophet” will never be wrong. They were to have no fear of the false prophet.

Did you know that there are many false prophets in the church today? They are supposedly speaking on behalf of God but are not. All you have to do to know is observe the results of what is spoken. If it doesn't come to pass that person has spoken presumptuously. False prophets also tend to use fear to sway folks. Be aware of these tactics, Christian! Hold these folks accountable for their words! If they are found to be false prophets abandon ship! Amen?

Father, we thank You for giving us clarity on how to identify who is speaking on Your behalf and who isn’t. Give Your church discernment in these last days that we aren't duped by the schemes of man we pray in Jesus' name, amen.
