They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them – 1 John 4:5.
They, false prophets, are of the world and the world hears them. The Word says ‘ask of me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance and the ends of the earth for your possession’ (Psalm 2:8). The LORD has given us the world to inherit and the earth to possess. However the world, our inheritance, is being enticed and entertained by somebody else, therefore it refuses even to listen or hear us. Wolves and vultures have descended upon it.
The Word speaks of perilous times, which now are, when lies, deception and immorality rule the day. The only hope for humanity is Jesus Christ, yet everyone is drawn away as far from Him as possible. The Gospel has been intercepted and taken advantage of by false ministers and impostors who are doing their best to profit the most from it. Just as the Word says that the kingdom suffers violence and violent, evil men take it by force. Time and time again, the Bible speaks luridly about these charlatans.
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world,” 1 John 4:1. These wolves have gone in among the lambs in sheep’s clothing. They’re causing untold damages, devouring and tearing lives apart. According to 2 Corinthians 11:20 they exploit and rob people blind, they take advantage of them and clean them out, and they don’t care squat about the salvation of their souls. They’re heartless, ruthless. Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed up as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves,” (Matthew 7:15 AMPC).
They are carnal and preach carnal messages. They are workers and servants of the devil. They tell people what they want to hear. They water the word of GOD down to deceive, they appeal to the lustful desires of the flesh and entice people. They’re selling an impure and perverted gospel. They deceive with satan’s power and lying miracles. They’re full of lust and take advantage of women. They’re lovers of money, boastful and empty. Beware of them, they’re literally everywhere. They sin sexually with women; they love money, and are very boastful and proud.
With these three things you cannot mistake them. Those who follow and support them are of the world, not of GOD, “They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error,” 1 John 4:5-6.
Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed up as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves
