When People Flat-Out Lie About Seeing Angels

by | May 4, 2018 | Supernatural & Dreams

Angelic encounters are on the rise—even secular news media are reporting stories activity among the heavenly host. Wise ones proceed with caution, though, because we Scripture clearly warns Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light (see 2 Cor. 11:14).

Still, there’s another issue of concern in the body of Christ: Prophets and prophetic people, among others, flat out lying about seeing angels. Of course, like most deceptions that run rampant in the church today, this practice dates back many thousands of years.

Indeed, angelic deceptions are nothing new, but it seems the false is rising with the true—and the fabricated are rising with the false. Discernment has never been more vital. Take it from a young prophet who lost his life after he believed an elder prophet’s lie about an angel.

When Old Prophets Lie Through Their Teeth

We read the account in 1 Kings 13. A young man of God prophesied against King Jeroboam, who had fallen from grace. Jeroboam ordered his arrest, only to watch his arm wither. After the young prophet prayed for the king and his arm was restored, Jeroboam offered him a reward.

“The man of God said to the king, ‘If you were to give me half your house, I would not go with you, nor will I eat bread nor drink water in this place, for so I was commanded by the word of the Lord, saying: You shall eat no bread, nor drink water nor return by the same way that you came.’ So he went another way and did not return by the same way he came to Bethel” (1 Kings 13:8-10).
