Who Are the False Prophets Jesus Warned Us About?

by | Sep 2, 2020 | Blogs, The Plumb Line

The Bible has plenty to say about false prophets in the Old and New Testaments.

John the apostle warned us not to believe every spirit, but to test the spirits to see if they are from God because many false prophets have gone out into the world (1 John 4:1). Peter warned of false prophets arising among the people, as well as false teachers, who secretly bring in destructive heresies (2 Pet. 2:1).

That should be enough to get our attention, and that’s not the least of it.

Paul also warned the church at Corinth about false apostles and deceitful workmen (2 Cor. 11:13-15), and 2 Peter 2:3 warns us about false words. Again, this is nothing new.

The Spirit of God told Jeremiah He did not send certain prophets, but they ran ahead anyway, prophesying outside of the will of God—even prophesying lies in His name (Jer. 23:21, 14:14-16). And Ezekiel spoke of false prophets who liked to declare “thus saith the Lord” when the Lord did not send them (Ezek. 13:6).
