False Prophets Can You Identify Them?
This coming Friday, May 29th will be the second FS Prophetic Training Class for May. Last week we discussed the truth about who we are in Christ. Do you know who you are? Our arch enemy is quick to tell us how unworthy and sinful we are to derail our prophetic calling and destiny.
We are sinful? But, according to Romans 6, our “Old Man” sin nature is gone, you killed him when you were baptized into Christ’s death. You drowned your old man, you killed him and so, he is “dead.”
3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
We are a new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) and we have new flesh. We are now growing in wisdom and learning like Jesus did daily. We learn how to discipline our new flesh and we have the ability to say no to sin. We are to cherish and nurture our new flesh as in Ephesians 5:29: For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church.
I know, I just told you, you killed your old flesh and he’s dead and yet, now I’m saying Jesus loves the church like you should love your flesh. Which is it?
Are we supposed to kill our flesh or nourish and cherish our flesh? It depends on what kind of flesh you are talking about.
You are supposed to kill the flesh per Galatians 5:19-21, you know the jealousy, enmity, outbursts of anger, etc. that’s the flesh that died in the tank in the Old Man. You’re supposed to leave him dead, but the new flesh you got in 2 Cor 5:17 is different.
If any man be in Christ he’s a new creation, NOT a new spirit, a whole new creation and that new flesh is what you are supposed to nourish and cherish. We killed the old man, but Hallelujah, we got a new man, Christ Jesus.
5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His Resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be [a]done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
That’s the key, we got baptized and when we did, we killed our old man and are no longer slaves to sin. Remember when I was a child, I did childish things…..well now, you are learning and growing into an adult – a mature Christian in Christ. 1 Corinthians 13:11
7 For he who has died has been [b]freed from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
Here it is:
11 Likewise you also, [c]reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Our old man is dead, dead, dead and the Scriptures confirm it 44 times in Romans five, six, seven and eight. They all say we are dead and dead people don’t sin. Unless, you resurrect your old man and that is called Necromancy, communication with the dead. Are you digging up dead bones and trying to rebuke, bind and deal with him when again, scriptures say, you killed your old sin man nature when you were baptized into Christ.
We are dead to sin, but alive in Christ. Romans 6:10-11
For the death that He died, He died to sin, once and for all but the life that he lives he lives to God, even so consider yourself to be dead to sin, but alive to God.
So, shake it off and remember, you are dead, dead, dead!
God put the hunger and desire of the prophetic ministry in you. He is calling you into your destiny through the prophetic or you would not be here reading this and taking the classes to find out what your gifting’s are and, if you are a real prophet, which brings us to our Friday Night Subject: False Prophets
Did you know in order for there to be false prophets, there has to be real prophets? And yes, I have heard those who say the prophets died out and are no more. Really? Matthew 5 seems to disagree about the prophet and the call. Yes, I believe this scripture is talking about the prophets. Read on.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Did you catch it? Jesus shares, I didn’t come to destroy the law and right here, is where those against the prophets stop, but read on.
He says, Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Prophets are still alive and so too, are false prophets. Look at the picture below.
Do you really think identifying a false prophet is this easy?
If so, you are already deceived.
Maybe you should consider the Friday Prophetic Training Class
Just a thought
