Wesley's Notes for Matthew 7:15

7:15 Beware of false prophets - Who in their preaching describe a broad way to heaven: it is their prophesying, their teaching the broad way, rather than their walking in it themselves, that is here chiefly spoken of. All those are false prophets, who teach any other way than that our Lord hath here marked out. In sheep's clothing - With outside religion and fair professions of love: Wolves - Not feeding, but destroying souls.

 

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 7:15

Mt 7:15 Beware of false prophets. The word "prophet", as used in the Scriptures, means any one who teaches authoritatively the will of God. A false prophet is one who is a false teacher. Christ refers to the scribes and Pharisees. Come to you in sheep's clothing. While appearing as harmless as sheep they are wolves.

Can a parallel be drawn with a politician promising everything

 

LOUIS ROVELLO's comment on 2014-01-13 20:18:29:

MUST CHECK EVERY WORD THAT IS SPOKEN BY AMYONE IN LIGHT OF SCRIPTURE. I CAN DISCERN THE TRUTH AGAINST THE FALSE PROPHETS BECAUSE I SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES DAILY TO SEE IF IT IS SO.

 

AntiCalvinist's comment on 2013-11-19 00:35:32:

the false prophets are people like the guy on topix posting himself as Prophet of Jesus Christ. This is just one example of people to watch out for. Once Saved Always Saved, Regular Church Attendance and membership,Alter Calls, Tithes, anything that someone makes you do to get to heaven is or should be considered a false prophet.

 

Jeffrey's comment on 2013-07-31 18:05:43:

any bible reader without the spirit could be described as the false prophet , for only the one that the father GOD abides in can rightfully speak on GODS WORD.

Penny - you're not the only one thinking that, quite a few of my "tuned in" friends, (Christian, political and those that are both), are saying/thinking the same thing!

 

Penny's comment on 2011-06-16 23:36:22:

With everything that is going on, could obama be the false prophet? Alot of things are coming to pass.
