Ever noticed how many self-proclaimed "prophets" there are today? Ever kept a record of how many of their "prophecies" actually came true? Did you know that, in biblical times, if a prophet ever spoke a single word for YHWH that didn't come true - to the letter - all his writings were destroyed and the prophet was killed?
Deuteronomy 18: 20 “‘But if a prophet presumptuously speaks a word in my name which I didn’t order him to say, or if he speaks in the name of other gods, then that prophet must die.’ 21 You may be wondering, ‘How are we to know if a word has not been spoken by Adonai?’
22 When a prophet speaks in the name of Adonai, and the prediction does not come true — that is, the word is not fulfilled — then Adonai did not speak that word. The prophet who said it spoke presumptuously; you have nothing to fear from him. (CJB)
This is why we must be VERY discerning. This is why it is imperative to know exactly WHOM to follow or believe! The Adversary is very cunning. He's always near, stalking you more than you could ever imagine, just waiting for a chance to lead you astray ... and he uses whomever he can to help him.
Be aware. Be on guard. KNOW Scripture inside-out, as it contains everything you need to know to remain set apart....
