Prophets

In 2022 in the Christian world....

Prophets and Teachers are offering

Excitement!

Hidden Knowledge!

Amazing Supernatural Experiences!

These

Friendly, Polite, Funny, Entertaining people -

sound knowledgeable....

but are they doing things

forbidden by God?

God tells us to test the prophets and teachers.

This page will help you test them.

God tells us to beware of

false prophets and false teachers.

Matthew 24:11 NKJV says,

"Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many."

2 Peter 2:1 a NKJV says,

But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you,
who will secretly bring in destructive heresies.

Galatians 1:8 warns us that angel encounters
can be demonic angels
pretending they are coming with a message from God.

*
Some new, famous prophets have

- without God's permission - 

changed the definition of

"Prophet."

New Prophets have changed the

Old and New Testament definition of

  "a prophet" -

the new definition says a prophet

must not say anything negative.

WARNING!   WARNING!

See 2 Timothy 4:3

ACTS 16:16-19

Some Christians are fooled
because a prophet or teacher tells them
truthful things. 

The devil does NOT ALWAYS lie.
He will give hidden truths in order to
further his agenda.
Truths are given to hook you and draw you
further into his realm.

See Acts 16:16-19

where the woman practicing divination
is giving true information to Paul.


Further down the page are

videos from a former

New Ager

who gives us valuable insights.

I want to emphasize that

EVEN IF a person has talked to an angel.....

or

EVEN IF a person has seen someone

who said he was Jesus....

or 

EVEN IF a person said he or she went to heaven....

and

EVEN IF that person is very likeable and seems sincere

That does not mean

that person had an experience from God.

SATAN and his demons provide

counterfeit supernatural experiences!

WARNING:

Almost all the new prophets talk of their 

numerous experiences with

angels and Jesus and going to heaven!!!

-

They try to tempt you by making you think...

"You are missing out on something wonderful!"


I'm a senior citizen.
I've been a devoted Christian since I was a little child.

I have never personally met a Christian
who had
supernatural encounters of 

talking to angels or a visible Jesus 

but
I HAVE met people in the New Age who have frequently

had these types of encounters.  

Let me be clear -

Christians who enter New Age / Occult practices

  - willingly or because they are deceived - 

can have these types of encounters

and think these encounters are coming from God.

Warning!

It is not unusual for

people who

delve into

New Age practices

to have numerous encounters

with angels and someone who calls himself Jesus!


Many people are being deceived

thinking they are

getting messages from God

but note - - - the devil is a master at deception.

( 2 Corinthians 11:14 )

God tells us

to check

EVERYTHING

against the Bible.

2 Timothy 3:16



If someone changes

the definition of prophet or repentance, etc.

that is a RED FLAG of warning!!!

-

CAUTION

Many in the church are trying to 

SILENCE

people who are warning of error that is 

slipping into the church.

See our page on righteous Judging. 

The Bible says we need to examine and test.


From New Age to Christ Follower

Warren B. Smith


Many current prophets and teachers

are adding New Age techniques and doctrines.


Warren B. Smith

used to be in the New Age.

-

He will tell us how

The New Age

has crept into the church.

Purple Notes

from the video above

The above video talks about "Jesus Calling" and "A Course in Miracles."

Warren B. Smith's book which discusses Sarah Young's book "Jesus Calling". Sarah Young's book was inspired by the book "God calling" which was written by 2 women in the 1030's. The New Age Movement says that "God Calling" was channeled

https://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=16349

From the link above

The Encyclopedia of New Age Beliefs, published by Harvest House Christian publishers, specifically describes God Calling as a channeled New Age book. In their lengthy chapter on channeling and spiritual dictation, authors/apologists John Weldon and John Ankerberg explain that channeling is a form of New Age “mediumship” and according to the Bible it “is a practice  forbidden (Deuteronomy 18:9-12).”4 Under the subheading titled “Impersonations of Christianity,” the authors describe God Calling as a New Age book “replete with denials of biblical teaching”5 as it “subtly encourages psychic development and spiritistic inspiration under the guise of Christ’s personal guidance . . . and often misinterprets Scripture.”6 Yet Sarah Young wrote that it was God Calling that inspired her to receive her own messages from “Jesus.” In her original introduction to Jesus Calling, Young praised God Calling as “a treasure to me”:

We must be alert and seek to be humble....

If you think that you could never be deceived....

you are already deceived.

I am going to name a false prophet.

But first, I remind you that

Paul modeled for us to call others out

who call themselves Christians yet they are in error.

Paul called out "true Christians" who were in error.

How much more should we call out False Prophets who are taking people into things God calls evil.

See the section on Paul below.

Paul taught us 

that is good to call people out

when there is doctrinal error or sin involved.

Here are 2 examples...

In Galatians 2 starting in verse 11 -
Paul publicly judges Peter's error.

Philippians 4:2-3

Here is a good article on this topic

https://www.christiantoday.com/article/why-did-paul-confront-peter-and-what-can-we-learn-from-it/122461.htm

Paul also called out 2 women publicly in Philippians 4:2-3.

Please read our "Judge Not" page

if you are having a problem with this section.


False Prophet - Bill Johnson


Bill Johnson of Bethel Church

is a major leader of the new prophetic movement.

Bill Johnson

has publicly said that Christians should explore the

New Age and its practices.

(He uses the exact words "New Age.")


God calls New Age practices evil. 

Bill encourages New Age practices. 

Bill takes it upon himself

to say that

what God said is evil 

is actually good.


Isaiah 5:20 says: 

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.


Next,

I want to show you

an example of

Bill Johnson

explaining what being a prophet looks like.


Note: Bill Johnson's church is taking children to heaven each Sunday in Sunday school. 
Be careful what is being taught in your Sunday school.

Next, I am paraphrasing what Bill said in the video...

Bill had a group of people sit in a circle. He went around the room and  asked "What you think Jesus would say to us today?"

After everyone had spoken, Bill joyfully announced, 
"We have just prophesied for the Lord!" 

Beth says -

No, they did not just show an example of prophecy.

They gave their opinions!!!

This is the kind of ridiculous exercises and ideas

that these men are foisting on an unsuspecting world. 

And I remind you that

accuracy in their "art of prophecy"

is of no interest to these "prophets."

-

Bill says that "hearing from the spirit"

is more important than

what the Bible says. 



False Prophets

create excitement

with their stories

and then they tempt people by saying,

"I can teach YOU how to do what I do."

These false prophets

are getting rich from teaching this stuff!




Exposing the New Age


Warren B. Smith said - soon after becoming a Christian - 

"Churches are going

INTO

the thing

( the New Age )

that I just left."

Highlights from the First Video

In Matthew 24, 

She pointed this out in her own words with her own emphasis.....

In Matthew 24 when the disciples asked Jesus,

"What will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?"

Jesus answered, "Deception"

"Watch out that no one deceives you."

Revelation 2:2

Jesus complimented

the church members of Ephesus by saying...

“I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil.
And
you have
tested
those who say
they are apostles
and are not,
and have found them liars,"

Jesus says

we are to TEST those in the church
who lead us and teach us. 


Jeremiah 14:14 NKJV

And the Lord said to me,

“The prophets prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them,

commanded them, nor spoken to them;

they prophesy to you

a false vision, divination,

a worthless thing, and the

deceit of their heart.
