Many sow lies and deception inviting certain destruction upon themselves.
But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 KJV)
False prophets have been around since ancient biblical times however the Bibles tells us that their presence and spiritual sway will increase in end times. We are today living in the end times and there are many false prophets working to spread godless gospels with lies and deceit to those who will listen, even some predicting when and how the world will end, spreading doom and gloom, hate, and division in this world not lining up with the Truth of God’s Word.
God takes all men who speak falsely in His name very seriously. These men are busy about misrepresenting Him with foolish words and false renderings but those who have been spiritually quickened alive know His Word, through exercising discernment, can distinguish false prophets from The Truth because of the power of the Holy Spirit living and working inside of them.
