“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  Ye shall know them by their fruits.  Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.  A good 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.  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.  Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?  And in thy name have cast out devils?  And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”   (Matt 7:15-23) 

The Lord declared in the scriptures that in the last days there would arise many “false prophets” and “false christs” and such would show great signs and wonders that if it were possible, they would be able to deceive even the very elect.  According to the words of our Lord, we will be able to identify the false prophets from the true prophets by their fruits.  When most in the church today think of “fruit” with reference to this scripture, they assume this to mean “works”.  However, this is not always the case especially with regards to false prophets/teachers for anyone can be deceptive in works thus, it would be difficult to discern the truth of the heart of one based solely upon works. For man can produce “good works”, but his heart may be still far from the Lord. .  As the scriptures tell us that these false prophets “works” would be great.  Thus if “fruits” were indication of “works” and their works were of great signs and wonders, what then would give them the label of being “false”?  If we are going to define their sincerity based upon their works, wouldn’t then they be considered “good” in the eyes of man if they are going about doing great and marvelous things?   The truth of the matter is the danger is not so much in their works and since works are deceptive this should not be our main area of focus.  The danger shall be and IS in their DOCTRINE.  Their WORDS shall be their fruit, and the doctrine of the man/woman who defines his/herself as a prophet of God shall clearly distinguish the true prophet of God from the false.   For what comes out of the mouth of man is FIRST conceived in the heart.  Therefore, if the speech is not birthed from the word of God such a one is not sent by God.  All that is written in scripture is of TRUTH, thus any words spoken opposite of the Word of God is a lie.   

Therefore, we must be very cautious of the doctrine we receive and allow to take root in our hearts.  For there are many self-serving, self-seeking, self-professing “ministers” of the Gospel whose works are not only deception, but indeed their speech as well.  And certain doctrine that is being taught in the church today serves only to pull believers further from the truth rather than to.  Therefore it is imperative that every born again believer know what the word of God says for themselves rather than rely on man to give his interpretation.  For if you are aware of what is written through your own personal study of the scriptures, you will then be able to discern whether the speech of one is coming from The Lord, or another source.  Surely the Lord has placed “Teachers” within the body for such are part of the five-fold ministry and are of absolute necessity, but this does not mean that we should not study the word and gain some spiritual insight ourselves as well as learn through those appointed by the Lord as teachers within the Body.  As the word of God declares “My people perish for lack of knowledge”, while many are waiting upon man to declare what “thus saith the Lord”, they are under attack from the enemy and because they know not what the Word of God says regarding their circumstance, they begin to faint and fall into hopelessness and despair.  Therefore, during these difficult and perilous times when many will be sent by the enemy in an attempt to deceive and lure you from the truth, it is essential you know what the Word of God says concerning all things, that you be not deceived through the false doctrine and alluring speech of some.    

There is no doubt in these last days there shall be many who will be deceived  by the great signs and wonders performed through false prophets and false christs for outwardly their “wonders” will appear as being marvelous works of God.   Since people are more captivated by what they can physically see rather than what they hear, they will receive these false prophets as being true prophets of God.  And being already swept away by their outwardly “good works”,  they will not be able to detect the falsity of their speech for they shall be deceived into believing if the works are good, the speech is also.  If they are “moved” ONLY  by the works of the false prophet, their hearts would then be opened to receive the lies of him/her as well.  Yet ONLY the elect shall not be deceived as such have searched the scriptures and know what the word of God declares.  Therefore, judge the speech/doctrine first and determine if it lines up with the Word of God and then examine the works of one who professes to be a “prophet/teacher” sent by God.   For the works of a man will not prove his validity, but his speech will.  For no teacher sent by God would speak opposite of what His Word has already declared.  Neither would they use works as a way of deceiving the people into receiving their doctrine.  A true prophet of God will speak ONLY what the Lord has spoken, and you will know whether it’s truth or a lie by KNOWING yourself what is written.  Be spiritually wise in these last days as the enemy has already sent many out seeking to deceive, and there are many more to follow.  As we near the end, false teachers shall increase all the more.  REMAIN IN THE WORD.

I love you all so very much. Have a blessed week in the Lord and remember: Whatever we do, do ALL for the GLORY of GOD, who ALONE is worthy of the GLORY and the PRAISE!

The Lord be with you this day and always!  Shalom Uvracha (Peace and Blessings)……..
