TEXT: II Pet. 2: 1-3

“BUT THERE WERE false prophets, too in those days, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly tell their lies about God, turning against even their Master who bought them; but theirs will be a swift and terrible end. Many will follow their evil teaching that there is nothing wrong with sexual sin. And because of them Christ and his way will be scoffed at. These teachers in their greed will tell anything to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago and their destruction is on the way” (TLB).

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of” (KJV).

Here we see a warning about false prophets. What are their characteristics? They cleverly tell their lies about God. The painful thing is that many will follow their evil teachings. A lot of Pastors have been boxed. They are like Saul who listened to the voice of the crowd and in the process displeased God. It is rather unfortunate. For Apostle Peter to have written about this, it means that it started a long time ago, unfortunately, it is getting worse. These false prophets tell people what they want to hear so that they can keep coming back to patronize them.


Every false prophet is a liar and a poisonous snake. People patronize them even when it is obvious that they are lying. Such people run away from those who tell them the truth because there is something about that spirit that magnetizes. If you have ever patronized a false prophet, please break away; break every evil seal you have collected from a false prophet. Blot out your name from the register of a false prophet.
