On FALSE teachers

 


1 John 4:1

King James Version

4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, 

but try the spirits whether they are of God: 

because many false prophets are gone out into the world.


How to know FALSE teachers?

How dangerous are they?

SPIRIT guided me to these verses:

Deuteronomy 13:1-3

King James Version

13 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.


Matthew 7:15-20

King James Version

15 Beware of false prophets, 

which come to you in sheep's clothing, 

but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. 

Do men gather grapes of thorns, 

or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; 

but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, 

neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit 

is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.


Matthew 24:23-27

King James Version

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, 

Lo, here is Christ, or there; 

believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, 

and false prophets, 

and shall shew great signs and wonders; 

insomuch that, if it were possible, 

they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, 

I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, 

Behold, 

he is in the desert; go not forth: 

behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, 

and shineth even unto the west; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


Mark 13:5-6

King James Version

5 And Jesus answering them began to say,

 Take heed lest any man deceive you:

6 For many shall come in my name, 

saying, 

I am Christ; 

and shall deceive many.


2 Corinthians 11:13-15

King James Version

13 For such are false apostles, 

deceitful workers, 

transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14 And no marvel; 

for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15 Therefore it is no great thing 

if his ministers also be transformed 

as the ministers of righteousness; 

whose end shall be according to their works.


Ephesians 5:11-13

King James Version

11 And have no fellowship 

with the unfruitful works of darkness, 

but rather reprove them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things 

which are done of them in secret.

13 But all things that are reproved 

are made manifest by the light: 

for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.


2 Thessalonians 2:3-12

King James Version

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: 

for that day shall not come, 

except there come a falling away first, 

and that man of sin be revealed, 

the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself 

above all that is called God, 

or that is worshipped; 

so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, 

shewing himself that he is God.

5 Remember ye not, that, 

when I was yet with you, 

I told you these things?

6 And now ye know what withholdeth 

that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: 

only he who now letteth will let, 

until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, 

whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, 

and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, 

whose coming is after the working of Satan 

with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness 

in them that perish; 

because they received not the love of the truth, 

that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, 

that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned 

who believed not the truth, 

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


1 Timothy 6:3-5

King James Version

3 If any man teach otherwise, 

and consent not to wholesome words, 

even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

4 He is proud, 

knowing nothing, 

but doting about questions and strifes of words, 

whereof cometh envy, strife, 

railings, evil surmisings,

5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, 

and destitute of the truth, 

supposing that gain is godliness: 

from such withdraw thyself.


2 Timothy 3:1-7

King James Version

3 This know also, that in the last days 

perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, 

covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, 

disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, 

false accusers, incontinent, fierce,

 despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, 

lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof: 

from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, 

and never able to come 

to the knowledge of the truth.


2 Timothy 3:13

King James Version

13 But evil men and seducers 

shall wax worse and worse, 

deceiving, 

and being deceived.


2 Timothy 4:3-4

King James Version

3 For the time will come 

when they will not endure sound doctrine; 

but after their own lusts 

shall they heap to themselves teachers, 

having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, 

and shall be turned unto fables.


2 Peter 2:1-3

King James Version

2 But there were false prophets also among the people, 

even as there shall be false teachers among you, 

who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, 

even denying the Lord that bought them, 

nd bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; 

by reason of whom the way of truth 

shall be evil spoken of.

3 And through covetousness shall they 

with feigned words make merchandise of you: 

whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, 

and their damnation slumbereth not.


1 John 2:22-23

King James Version

22 Who is a liar 

but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? 

He is antichrist, 

that denieth the Father and the Son.

23 Whosoever denieth the Son, 

the same hath not the Father: 

he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.


1 John 2:26-27

King James Version

26 These things have I written unto you 

concerning them that seduce you.

27 But the anointing 

which ye have received of him abideth in you, 

and ye need not that any man teach you: 

but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, 

and is truth, 

and is no lie, 

and even as it hath taught you, 

ye shall abide in him.


1 John 4:3

King James Version

3 And every spirit that confesseth not 

that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: 

and this is that spirit of antichrist, 

whereof ye have heard that it should come; 

and even now already is it in the world.


2 John 7

King James Version

7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, 

who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. 

jThis is a deceiver and an antichrist.


Jude 4

King James Version

4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, 

who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, 

ungodly men, 

turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, 

and denying the only Lord God, 

and our Lord Jesus Christ.


Revelation 13:11-18

King James Version

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; 

and he had two horns like a lamb, 

and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power 

of the first beast before him, 

and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein 

to worship the first beast, 

whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, 

so that he maketh fire come down from heaven 

on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth 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.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, 

that the image of the beast should both speak, 

and cause that as many as would not worship 

the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, 

both small and great, 

rich and poor, 

free and bond, 

to receive a mark in their right hand, 

or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, 

save he that had the mark, 

or the name of the beast, 

or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. 

Let him that hath understanding 

count the number of the beast: 

for it is the number of a man; 

and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.


Revelation 19:19-21

King James Version

19 And I saw the beast, 

and the kings of the earth, 

and their armies, 

gathered together to make war against him 

that sat on the horse, 

and against his army.

20 And the beast was taken, 

and with him the false prophet 

that wrought miracles before him, 

with which he deceived them 

that had received the mark of the beast, 

and them that worshipped his image. 

These both were cast alive into a lake of fire 

burning with brimstone.

21 And the remnant were slain 

with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, 

which sword proceeded out of his mouth: 

and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.


The next post is on those who hinder.
