Being warned of false prophets, little is taught about what a
false prophet is. The Bible does not support prophets competing
to unveil scripture in hopes of reward. The last time I checked,
prophets heard directly from God; whether by dreams, visions, or
God's voice; leaving no guess work in their message.
A professed prophet said, "I believe the white horse could be a
flying saucer." God says the white horse's rider is called
Faithful and True (Re. 19:11). Do you really think he would be
driving a flying saucer?
The black horse must mean something really evil, right?
Scripture says the horses represent the four spirits of the
heavens (Ze. 6:5).
A heifer can answer the riddle. Can an animal do that?
What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion?
And he said unto them, If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye
had not found out my riddle. Judges 14:18 Saul and Jonathan were
lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were
not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger
than lions. 2 Samuel 1:23 How sweet are thy words unto my taste!
yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103
One announced, "We have finally figured it out! The twinkling
of an eye is 15,000 millimeters of a second." Did that make your
eye twinkle? It didn't mine either.
What if Jesus were to say, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard ...
the things God has prepared for them that love Him. Come, see
the mansion prepared for you." Notice a twinkle?
God said He would take the wise in their own craft. If it were
possible, they could deceive the very elect. It just does not
hold up with scripture.
They sought to know about God instead of knowing Him (II
Co.2:13-14, II Ti.2:15).
The call of a prophet is to be on the front line of spiritual
battlefields, protecting God's children, Je. 23:22, He. 11:28.
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether
they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and
the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God
heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us.
Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error."
1 John 4:1, 5-6
