How To Test A Prophet
I pray you take the time to read this info I have found in the scriptures of the Bible about the importance of understanding how to confirm someone is a prophet.
For those that have a "new age Bible" it has changed some of the words from the original meaning. The new age Bible is not doing a direct word translation but a interpretation of the meaning. That meaning ends up being that person's opinion but not the information that was originally there. Prophets have to be right about their predictions and what they speak on has to line up in scriptures.
How are we to determine if a message is truly from God? The Bible never says to test a prophet by prayer, but by his message.
Deuteronomy 13 warns that a prophet must teach correctly about God. Chapter 18 tells us the prophet's prophecies must come to pass. Paul tells us in Galatians 1:8-9 that even angels can appear with a wrong message. We are to compare the message with the teachings of the apostles.
Deuteronomy 13: 1-3
If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
17 And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the Lord may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;
18 When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the Lord thy God.
We have to make sure we are not using programs, numbers, star signs, to find out who we are in secret or use them to for tell was is it come. Our Word comes from YHVH but we have to make sure that is who is talking to us. To determine who is talking you have to see if that voice matches up to scripture.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
The reason it is so important that we know where we get our knowledge from is because in Galatians 1 it states that if someone teaches or preaches anything other than what Jesus, his disciples, or other prophets have preached than it is not from YHVH. It is from a source that is not of GOD(YHVH). I just want you to be careful and pray about the information you are receiving.
Galatians 1:8-9 KJV)
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
