Matthew 24:11-13. False Prophets 24 Oct 2023

Mat 24:11 Many false prophets will arise;
they will deceive many,
12 and with the increase of lawlessness,
love in most people will grow cold;
13 but anyone who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Yesterday, the language was about nations and people. Today, things are more personal. Are the described events in my future or did a few things already happen? Perhaps those things are of all times.

Who are the false prophets? They could be people who claim to speak in the name of the Lord. With such a definition, that would include at least some priests. There might be very different ones! What about a person who teaches that God, heaven, hell and or sin does not exist? Do they proclaim the truth? Would Satan be a false prophet? He spreads lies.


Jesus, I ask for your Holy Spirit and help to discern what does not come from your mouth.
