7 Signs to Discern False Prophets

The following is part two of my article "7 Signs That Help Discern Between Flaky and False Prophets." As already stated in the first part of this article, by flaky, I am referring to a prophetic leader who has serious flaws in their ministry, but their heart and motive is generally right before God. By a false prophet I am referring to a person who is not only erroneous in some of their methodology, but in their motive and ambition. This is the kind of person I believe Jesus was referring to when He told His followers to beware of false prophets who come in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravening wolves (Matthew 7:15).
  1. They prophesy to people based on info they receive on social media

I have heard of so-called prophets that will google the names of pastors and people they know they are going to minister to, and then prophesy to them things already written about them online. Furthermore, they also go on the social media pages of the people they will minister to and garner specific personal and ministerial information about them. Unfortunately, most people are so gullible and so desperate to receive a word from the Lord they will likely not correlate what they wrote online with what they are hearing from the so-called prophet – or they will just think it was a confirmation of what they already wrote, sensed or said about themselves (on social media).

A person who gathers personal info to prophesy it to others is a false prophet in my book.
  1. They prophesy based on conversations they have had with others

I have had one so-called (apostolic) prophet visit our church in the 1980's who would spend a long time asking me about specific people in our congregation before he ministered prophetically in our church service. read more
