From: Coalition of Prophets (Gene Bacon)
Please consider the following word of the Lord:
Over the past few months I have been experiencing a concern that I believe is from the Lord as to the prophets who prophesy falsely in the name of the Lord. I am not their judge but the Lord is. I believe I can relate to the prophet Jeremiah who felt broken-hearted because of the prophets who prophesied falsely in the name of the Lord, yet considered it a light thing without being accountable for their false prophecies and their sin.
Jer 23:9–Jer 23:32 (KJV)
Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness. For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right. For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.
It is common knowledge that adultery and homosexuality is rampant among many who are claiming to speak for the Lord. “Bishops,” prophets, pastors, evangelists, and other “ministers” have either been found to be in sin, or are “coming out of the closet” declaring that God created them to be homosexuals and they are proud of it. Can you see how sick that is?
According to the word of the Lord, the false prophets will not prosper in the end, but God will find them out. Not only will He expose them, but they will inherit evil from the Lord.
Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD. And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err. I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
False prophets tell the people what they want to hear. They speak visions from the imaginations of their own hearts and dare not speak judgment to those who despise the Lord. How does one despise the Lord? One way is by despising His word!
One very well known prophet claims that prophets who are accurate only part of the time (60-75%) are good prophets. While no one is beyond making mistakes, they should never be the plumb line for the word of the Lord. ONLY the written word can be the standard for judging prophecies, dreams, and visions from the Lord. False prophets are not overly concerned with that standard, and therefore make up their own.
This same prophet claims that he can enter into the third heaven, which is the place where God sits on His throne, any time he wants to, and incredibly he and others like him claim to have been there many times over. That prophet’s name is BOB JONES.
True prophets will warn saints to turn from their wicked ways rather than telling them everything will be okay in spite of their sin. There is a corrupt teaching of extreme grace that claims that Jesus forgave all our sins, past, present, and future at the cross. While He did forgive our past sins, we must continue to deal with sins we commit in the present and the future.
A well known false teacher, JOSEPH PRINCE, has captivated and bewitched many into believing that they don’t need to be conscious of their sins, while the Bible tells us that IF we continue to willfully sin AFTER having received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no sacrifice for our sins.
Heb 10:26 –Heb 10:27 (KJV)
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
It is clear to me that I must judge according to the written word what God has to say on the issue of sin, regardless of what anyone else might say. The important issue here is that Prince’s teachings will lead many into the fiery indignation and eternal judgment of the Lord. Please don’t think that false teaching isn’t dangerous! It can lead you away from Christ and into the bowels of hell! I can guarantee you that Joseph Prince won’t tell you that! But true prophets will.
