“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.” Matthew 7:15-16
In Matthew 7, The Lord Jesus warns us against false prophets. He tells us that we will recognize them by their fruits. Do not forget that the fruits of The Spirit are love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. We should learn to discern who are false prophets by looking at the fruits they bear, good or bad. Let’s not fall into the trap of the devil who sometimes dresses as an angel of light to deceive us.
“For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles Of Christ. And no wonder, for satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
