Because, “Many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people!” Matthew 24:11 NLT

They will preach a different Jesus, a different kind of Spirit and a different kind of gospel! (See 2. Corinthians 11:4)

They twist the Scriptures to mean something quite different! (See 2. Peter 3:16)

“In their greed, they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money!” 2. Peter 2:3 NLT

They will perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones! (See Matthew 24:24)

Like Satan, these false prophets disguise themselves as angel of lights, like servants of righteousness! (See 2. Corinthians 11:14-15)

They trick people with lies so clever they sound like the truth! (See Ephesians 4:14)

Jesus made this very clear when He said: “See, I have warned you about this ahead of time!” Matthew 25:25 NLT

“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.” Matthew 7:15 NLT

Therefore, you must search the Scriptures to see if what these people are teaching is indeed the truth! (See Acts 17:11)
