There are 3 things that do not distinguish a true prophet from a false prophet.
You will judge wrongly when using these 3 things which might lead you to worship of Satan as seen in testing river waters. See how to distinguish a true prophet from a false prophet.
3 Things that do not distinguish a true prophet from a false prophet
These are: –
1. Miracles and signs
Both true prophets and false prophets can perform miracles.
The Bible reveals that Satan and his servants can show great miracles, signs and wonders.
Jesus warned of false prophets who shall show great signs and wonders. These false prophets are here today powered by Satan.
Matthew 24:2 for there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Antichrist will be greatly powered by Satan. He will show great wonders even giving life to an image and making fire came down from heaven.
2 Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders
Rev 13:13-14: And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
Through miracles and signs, Satan is deceiving many people (Rev 13:13-14). We are in the End Time and the adulterous generation is here seeking miracles and signs but denying the power; the Holy Spirit.
God has out-poured His spirit as prophesied by Joel and Satan has also out-poured his spirit to counteract God. As there are many true prophets, they are also many false prophets today.
Due to emptiness of this adulterous generation in seeking more and more miracles, false prophets are here to feel that gap and give them what they want deceiving many even Christians. I see these false prophets everywhere from televisions, churches, streets to all corners of this world.
True prophets perform miracles under the power of Jesus Christ while false prophets perform miracles under the power of Satan. Therefore miracles, signs and wonders do not distinguish a true prophet from a false prophet.
But there are ways you can distinguish Jesus Christ miracles from Satan miracles (coming soon).
2. Foretelling the future
You have heard this saying, ‘to out win Satan, tell him his future’.
Satan knows the entire future including his future as decreed by God and when he foretells future, he tells what is decreed; there is nothing new from him.
Therefore, Satan servants including false prophets can foretell the future including your personal future. But in the process they omit everything to do with Jesus Christ; the truth.
In the Bible, we see Satan powered false prophets foretelling the future.
The witch of Endor predicted the fate of King Saul. This witch communicated with a demonic spirit which already knew that Saul was to die in the coming battle with the Philistines (I Sam. 28:7-20).
In the New Testament, we see a woman powered by Satan revealing secrets and foretelling the future (Acts 16:16-19).
Many people today, even Christians, are falling to the trap of Satan in seeking personal prophecy.
There are prophets telling people that they can prophecy on their personal life and many are dashing to them. These are false prophets; Satanic. It is Satan taking advantage of this adulterous generation, prophesying their personal life and releasing demons to them.
To Christians, God has revealed our entire future in the Bible. What more do you want? And if He wants you to know something about your future, He will reveal it. God does not do anything without revealing it to his own children through His prophets.
Amos 3:7: Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets.
You do not have to go to a human being to ask for a personal prophecy. If God reveals it to His servant, the servant will come to tell you. He may also reveal it to you through dreams and visions.
It is God who reveals according to His will neither your will nor any other person’s will.
Satan and all false prophets are only taking advantage of you like they did to King Saul. Nothing new from them; they only say what God has already decreed but in the process they release demons on you and what about the worshiping of Satan you have done?
Why seek to know your personal future? It is all in the Bible if you are a Christian. If you do, Satan will take advantage and you will worship him.
True prophets may foretell the future but that is not a proof that they are God’s servants.
