How to Identify and Separate False Prophets

As the days grow spiritually darker across the world, as they must for the return of Jesus Christ to take place, false prophets and teachers are laying claim to deceived souls at a record pace.

With the power of social media at their fingertips, millions are being lulled into a false sense of spiritual community with a figure that is leading them down death’s path.

Recently, Pastor Greg Locke of Global Vision Bible Church in Mount Juliet, Tennessee, shared a passionately personal story of having to unhitch himself, and the church, from a friend who has been deceived by one of these false prophets.

The When and Where of Jesus’ Deliverance Ministry

The four Gospels record 37 miracles of Jesus, and the Gospel of Mark stands out for recording the most.

In Mark Chapter 1 alone we find four accounts of deliverance, and these amazing stories all come together in a single 24-hour period in Jesus’ ministry—a day in the life of Christ that gives us an indefensible argument for why we’ve been preaching on the kingdom of darkness.

Reading Mark’s Gospel is like a thrill ride—everything happens so fast. You’ll notice a particular word that’s used again and again: straightway. For example, in verse 21 above we see, “And they [Jesus and His disciples] went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught” (emphasis added). That word “straightway” is mentioned a whopping 19 times in the King James Version of Mark. It means quickly or done with expediency.

10 Keys to Survival in the Lord’s Prayer, Part 2

This is the second part in a two-part series. To read the first article, click here!

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matt. 6:9-13, KJV).

Key 6

Jesus said, “Give us this day our daily bread” (v. 11). I cannot pray effectively unless 1) I know Him, 2) I know my citizenship, 3) I know worship, 4) I’m living in the kingdom and 5) I know His mind, His will. Then and only then are my petitions, my requests, heard because the next thing Jesus said is, “Give us this day our daily bread.” This tells me that once I have right relationship, right citizenship, right worship and His kingdom and His Word in my life, I can bring my petitions.

Philippians 4:6 says God wants to know the details of your needs. The Scripture says, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Now when Paul said “everything,” he meant tell God the details in your petitions.
