False prophets AKA todays evangelists

These false prophets would be money hungry and smooth talkers (2 Peter 2:3). A growing number of TV evangelists epitomize this. They twist the Scriptures, using misleading words, to make merchandise of the unwary. Apostasy is a very important sign of the end times.

Virtually all men who call themselves “evangelists” are not true Biblical “bishops.” They are chief executive officers (CEOs) of religious 501c3 corporations. They have unequally yoked themselves with the federal and state governments in direct violation of the Scriptures (2 Kor. 6.14-18).

Satan alwas does this, dressing up as angels of light. So it shouldn’t surprise us when his servants masquerade as servants of God. But they’re not getting by with anything. They’ll pay for it in the end” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 MSG).

Are false prophets dangerous? Without a doubt they are: and God has always warned His people in both testaments to be aware of the danger they pose.

Our culture of immediacy, self-gratification and a desire for spiritual power is fertile ground for the wily wolf. When you combine thee elements with people who have no sure doctrinal foundation you have a recipe for a subtle but devastating spiritual shipwreck.

  1. Yes, deception has been in the world for millennia, all we can do as believers is to avoid and warn others. God bless us to stand firmly for His glory through Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen!
