God Sends False Prophets to Test Us

Where Living Begins

Two false prophets, Igbo and Bobo, ran through their village from opposite directions. In the center of the village, the two excited men collided into one another and fell down. Igbo said, I just had a dream. Thus says the Lord, “It will not rain on Tuesday.”

The other false prophet, Bobo, replied, No, I had a vision. Thus says the Lord, “It will rain on Tuesday.”

If it doesn’t rain on Tuesday, Igbo will claim to have been right; Bobo will also claim to be right, but say his prophecy was fulfilled spiritually not literally. Both prophets can say their messages came to pass, just like the time on a broken clock is right twice a day.

Godly prophets in the Bible were judged on more than a single prophecy about the future. Not only were their messages detailed with specifics, but their overall theology was also…

        Re: Battling people. I often think of this Scripture. I know so many who don’t want to hear.

        2 Timothy 2:24-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

        24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

      2. Thank you Mark.
        I didn’t mean battle as in the flesh I mean in prayer . We have a friend who is in a very dangerous place in her beliefs, so we battle for her in prayer, Maybe that’s not the right expression. ☺

  1. Thank you for this post Crissy. Yes, there are false “prophets” around today and some of them have a huge flock. You’re right, we can identify them if what they preach and do is not biblical at all. Like the sample, there is this pastor of a flock in southern Philippines who claims to be the annoited son of God and he has lots of followers here and abroad (and tv shows; typical for some of this kind). One of his claims late last year was to stop the earthquakes in Mindanao (that had several tremors by then). The earthquake didn’t stop; he got mock in the social media. He thinks of him as a demigod but GOD humbled him. Will he repent? No info on that thought but he seems business as usual.

    1. Thank you for your comment Gersom, I thought it important to share this post. There are many self appointed prophets right now claiming the Corona virus will end the day of passover. Sadly they have a huge following .

  2. Crissy, it is a long road but we continue to “press on”/work in our blog that when GOD opens/works in their hearts, 1) they have something to read on and reflect upon, 2) repent for allowing/encouraging that falsehood in their lives, and 3) walk according to His way.
