Beware of the false prophets (NAS)



Matthew 7:15   
"Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

2Pe 2:1  
 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

Galatians 2:4   
 But [it was] because of the false brethren secretly brought in, who had sneaked in to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, in order to bring us into bondage.

Matthew 24:5   
 "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.

Mark 13:22   
for false Christs and false prophets will arise, and will show signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect.

Deuteronomy 13
1  "If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder,
2. and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, 'Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,'
3. you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

Jeremiah 23
31. "Behold, I am against the prophets," declares the LORD, "who use their tongues and declare, '[The Lord] declares.'
32. "Behold, I am against those who have prophesied false dreams," declares the LORD, "and related them and led My people astray by their falsehoods and reckless boasting; yet I did not send them or command them, nor do they furnish this people the slightest benefit," declares the LORD.

Isaiah 9  
15  The head is the elder and honorable man, And the prophet who teaches falsehood is the tail.

Hosea 9
8  Ephraim [was] a watchman with my God, a prophet; [Yet] the snare of a bird catcher is in all his ways, [And] there is [only] hostility in the house of his God.

Hi BB
You picked a few good verses here, but there must be hundred more giving us the same warning. The Lord covered this so extensively in the Scriptures we must assume that it is going to be, or should I say is, a major problem for the Church. Remember He tells us that if He was to delay His coming, even the elect would be in danger of being deceived.
