What is a false prophet ?

What is a false prophet ?
Bible gives examples about false prophet and Jesus Christ said in His Word that, in last times, it would be hard to maintain the truth…


Here is an exemple about a false prophet :


Jeremiah 28

quote In the fight month of that same year, …the prophet Hananiah son of Azzur,…said to me in the house of the Lord in presence of the priests and all the people: « This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israël,says: I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon. Within two years I will bring back to this place all the articles of the Lord’s house that Nebuchanezzar king of Babylon removed from here and took to Babylon. I will also bring back to this place Jehoiachim son of   J. king of Judah and all the overs exiles from Yudah who went to Babylon, declares the Lord, for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon »

Then the prophet Jeremiah replied to the prophet Hananiah  before the priests and all the people who were standing in the house of the Lord. He said: « Amen!  May the lord do so!  May the Lord fulfil the words you have prophesied by bringing  the articles …and all the exiles back to this place from Babylon. Neverveless, listen to what I have to say in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people: from early times the prophets  who preceded you and me  have prophesied war, disaster and plague against many countries and great kingdoms. But the prophet who prophesies peace will be recognised as one truly sent by the Lord only if his prediction comes true. »

Then the prophet Hananiah took the yoke off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah and broke it, and he said before all the people: « This is what the Lord says: in the same way  will I  break the yoke of Nebuchanezzar  … within two years. »

At this , the prophet Jeremiah went on his way.

Shortly after… the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: » Go and tell Hananiah: this is what the Lord says: you have broken a wooden yoke, but in its place you you will get a yoke of iron….Listen Hananiah!  The Lord has not sent you, yet you have persuaded this nation to trust in lies. Therefore, this is what the Lord says: I am about to remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you are going to die, because you have preached rebellion against the Lord »

In the seventh month of that same year, Hananiah the prophet died. quote2

Jeremiah 23 speaks about false prophets...

Jeremiah 23 speaks about false prophets, who says also from the Lord:  quote you will have peace… no harm will come to you!… They will bear their guilt: the prophet will be as guilty as the one who consults him quote2  Ezekiel 14/ 10

quote You may say to yourselves : how can we know when a message has not been spoke by the Lord? If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place, or come true,  that is a message the Lord has not spoken; that prophet has spoken presumptuously,  do not be afraid of him quote2 Deut 18:22

Ezekiel 13 speaks about false prophet's judgment:

quote  This is what the Sovereign Lord says: woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing…Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you… I will  send my wrath against those prophets of Israël who saw visions of peace for her  when there was no peace… because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encouraged the wicked not to turn  from their evil ways and to save  their lives… I will save my people from your hands, and then you will know that I he Lord quote2 Ezekiel 13


Today, what must we do?

1 John 4/1

quote Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from god, because many false prophets  have gone out into the world quote2  1 John 4/1

Acts. 17/1

quote Now,  the bereans were of  more noble character then the thessalonians for they received  the message with  great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said  was true quote2  Acts. 17/1

Matthew 24

quote  Tell us, said the disciples to Jesus :what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?   — Jesus answered: watch out that no- one  deceives you. For  many will come  in my name, claiming I am the Christ and will deceive many…false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time quote2  Matthew 24

Mark 13

quote  So, be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time quote2  Mark 13

They come to you in sheep’s clothings but inwardly they are ferocious wolves…Many will say to me on that day, ‘ Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?  Then, I will tell  them plainly, I never knew you. Away from Me, you, evil-doers! quote2  Mattew 7/15

2 Peter 2

quote  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you… Many will follow their shameful ways…In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping. quote2 2 Peter 2


quote Dears friends, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith  that was  once for all  entrusted to the saints . For certain men  whose  condemnation  was written about  long ago have secretly  slipped among you…  remember what  the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold, they said to you: in the last times there will be  scoffers who will follow  their own  ungodly desires … But you, dears friends, build yourselves  up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait  for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternel life…

To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His  glorious  presence  without  fault  and with great joy- to the only God our Saviour,  be glory, majesty,  power and  authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and for evermore! Amen. quote2  Jude.
