PostSubject: Testing for the Real Thing   Sun Feb 24, 2013 11:57 am

After all the doomsday prophecies and FAIL of the 2012 end of the world one, I feel this article should be brought to light. There is so much deception in the world , so my wish is to help you to be able to discern....in testing for the real thing, real prophecy , in light of/according to the Bible and what He says about these so-called prophets.

Quote :
The world was filled with people who heeded nearly every word about the coming events of 2012. If a person blows away all the smokescreens and waits for the dust to settle though, he or she has already learned the wisdom of testing what these people said for accuracy. God left several examples for us in His Word about who to believe and who to not believe, who to fear and who not to fear.

High-powered names like Jeanne Dixon, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, Mother Shipton or others tend to grant credibility to predictions of the future. Adherents sometimes safeguard themselves by taking famous figures or writings from the past and making them say what they never said.

In God’s case, He spoke for Himself. Modern prophets of doom do everything they can to claim God said something; they just don’t know where He said it. They often want sincere people to jump to conclusions based on what the Lord must have meant when He made a statement as recorded in the Bible. We must understand that God means what He says and says what He means. There are many levels of understanding about the meanings of certain things, but making them say something by inserting the date of 2012 goes far beyond that.

A wise course of action for all Christians today is to not only test the teachings to learn if they are indeed from God but to also check out what many false prophets have claimed against the only accurate test for true prophecy that has ever existed. If the people hailed as prophets over the last centuries lived in Bible times, not only would they fail the test but they would also pay the price for failing it.

Keeping this in mind, let’s submit several “prophets” to God’s test. When used as examples for their prophecies about 2012, do they pass the test of the prophet? Is there reason to fear based on what they claimed or does God expect us to see something else?

“If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spoke unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou has not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.” Deuteronomy 13:1-4

Did you catch the impact here? Even if the prophet can accurately predict the future, if he doesn’t point you to the God of the Bible, he is not to be listened to. Those are God’s words, not mine.
