Who Are The False Prophets? – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 3rd

(You’ve Overcome The Antichrist Spirit In The World)

“Beloved, do not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world.”

When the Apostle John speaks of “false prophets,” he’s referring to “professors of deception” who’ve been inspired by demons to influence, deceive and sway the world in these end times.

That’s why John says to test the spirits out there. As you read further in context into the second and third verses, you’d notice John wasn’t talking about the “Antichrist” himself—who’s also called “the beast,” “the man of lawlessness,” or “the man of sin”—but the antichrist spirit behind his activities.

This antichrist spirit has been in the world ever since John’s day. Thankfully, through God’s Word and Spirit, we’re able to discern his activities and those of his false prophets and messengers.

And as the Word declares, we’ve overcome them all: 1 John 4:4 says, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

In the 5th and 6th verses, he continues, “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).

Walk in God’s truth and be spiritually alert, and you’ll be shielded against preachers of pseudo-science and the lies and deceit that they propagate.

Remember, truth is in your spirit, because the Holy Spirit—the Spirit of truth—lives in you. 2 John 1:2 says, “…the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever:” God’s truth protects you, delivers and saves you from trouble. Psalm 91:4 says, “…his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” Glory to God!

Dear Father, thank you for your Word by which I navigate my way through life. I’m discerning and perceptive; I’m invincible to the false doctrines, deceptions, ruse, wiles, shams, lies and sways of the antichrist spirit of darkness in the world today, for I’m led by your Word and guided by your Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
