QUOTES ABOUT FALSE PROPHETS IN THE BIBLE

By Edwin Christiaan | June 17, 2020

“The Lord answered: They claim to speak for Me, but they’re lying! I didn’t even speak to them, much less choose them to be My prophets. Their messages come from worthless dreams, useless fortunetelling, and their own imaginations.” Jeremiah‬ ‭14:14‬ ‭CEV

“Those prophets lie by claiming they speak for Me, but I have not even chosen them to be My prophets. And they still think their words will come true. They say they’re preaching My messages, but they are full of lies—I did not speak to them!” Ezekiel‬ ‭13:6-7‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“Do not listen to these prophets when they prophesy to you, filling you with futile hopes. They are making up everything they say. They do not speak for the Lord!” Jeremiah‬ ‭23:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“These unfaithful prophets claim I give them their dreams, but it isn’t true. I didn’t choose them to be My prophets, and yet they babble on and on, speaking in My name, while stealing words from each other. And when My people hear these liars, they are led astray instead of being helped.” [...]

FOR THE RECORD

By Sophia Christiaan | June 11, 2020

Edwin Christiaan and I have been slandered, lied about, mistreated, falsely accused, judged, and rejected many times over during our 15 years together.

It has mainly come from other Christians, who believe false reports and assume things without any knowledge.

But we consider it a great privilege when this happens because this is nothing new, but something very normal to experience as God’s children living in the Light. (Matthew 5:11-12)

They can never point to anything we have done wrong to them, because our conduct has been godly and flawless; we have loved unconditionally, served tirelessly, and preached the Gospel in its entirety, never compromising or watering it down, and never for monetary gain!

We have lived meagerly on almost nothing and never received a salary, steady income, or had faithful monthly partners. Yet, we have traveled the world for 15 years miraculously and preached Jesus from coast to coast in the US, Canada, several Caribbean islands, Scandinavia, Europe, and Israel.

We have encouraged people, led them to salvation, seen many healings, marriages restored, impossible cases solved, and [...]

HE LOVES YOU EVEN SO

By Edwin Christiaan | May 28, 2020

“Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean He no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:35, 37‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Yes,

“I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.” Romans‬ ‭8:38‬ ‭NLT‬‬

NO WORRIES

By Edwin Christiaan | May 28, 2020

“Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?” Matthew‬ ‭6:27‬ ‭NLT‬‬

No! Therefore,

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.” 1 Peter‬ ‭5:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

In other words,

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.” Philippians‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭MSG‬‬

WHEN YOU ARE NOT BORN AGAIN YOU WILL FALL AWAY

By Edwin Christiaan | May 24, 2020

It is for this very reason that Jesus said,

“So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’” John‬ ‭3:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” John‬ ‭3:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

That is why it is impossible for a truly born again believer to fall away from God!

“For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.” 1 Peter‬ ‭1:23‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Therefore,

“No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans‬ ‭8:39‬ ‭NLT‬‬

ARE YOU BEING EQUIPPED TO DO GOD’S WORK?

By Edwin Christiaan | May 15, 2020

Through the church using God’s Word?

“Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do His work and build up the church, the body of Christ.” Ephesians‬ ‭4:11-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip His people to do every good work.” 2 Timothy‬ ‭3:16-17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

My prayer for you is,

“May God equip you with all you need for doing His will. May He produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to Him” Hebrews‬ ‭13:21‬ ‭NLT‬‬

THE DEVIL IS NO MATCH

By Edwin Christiaan | May 9, 2020

The Bible puts the following questions before us,

“Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do?” James‬ ‭2:15-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?” 1 John‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Here are the answers,

“When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them.” Romans‬ ‭12:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

So,

“Don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.” Hebrews‬ ‭13:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

In the words of Jesus,

“I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to Me” Matthew‬ ‭25:40‬ ‭NLT‬‬

DO YOU HELP THOSE IN NEED?

QUESTIONS MANY HAVE A HARD TIME ANSWERING CORRECTLY

By Edwin Christiaan | April 15, 2020

I remember many years ago somebody challenged me asking the following questions about tithing, which ultimately led me to write a book about this subject.

Where does it say in the Bible that Jesus commanded us to pay tithes, that is 10% of our MONEY income to the church in order to be blessed and not to be cursed? Where? Prove it with scriptures!

Did the apostle Paul or any other disciple of Jesus teach that we are obligated to pay tithes, which is 10% of our MONEY income to the church every week or month? Where is that written in the Bible? Please prove it with scriptures!

GOD DECIDES AND DOES WHAT HE WANTS

By Edwin Christiaan | March 23, 2020

“You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer.” Job‬ ‭14:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“The Lord gives both death and life; He brings some down to the grave but raises others up.

The Lord makes some poor and others rich; He brings some down and lifts others up. He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, placing them in seats of honor.

For all the earth is the Lord’s, and He has set the world in order. He will protect His faithful ones, but the wicked will disappear in darkness.

No one will succeed by strength alone. Those who fight against the Lord will be shattered. He thunders against them from heaven; the Lord judges throughout the earth.

He gives power to His king; He increases the strength of His anointed one.” 1. Samuel‬ ‭2:6-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

IN OTHER WORDS,

God is in control of everything! Yes, even the number of days that we will live on [...]
