And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. Matt. 24:11
I believe that without searching the Word of God, that many will be deceived by false prophets. The key is to search the scripture, (test the spirit). This means do not go with a “gut feeling” or witness, but to go with what the scriptures have to say. All prophetic words, will line up with the Word of God because that is His truth for today, in which to measure the righteousness of the word given. My advice to myself is to be very careful and allow the Lord to show me in His Word, what is truth and what is false. Lord show me what is true and what is not.
