11-1-2017 Bible Over False Prophets

Before a battle with Syria, Israelite kings consulted God. Ahab, the king of Israel, had 400 prophets who told him to go ahead. Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, asked if there was any other prophet to consult. “So the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, ‘There is still one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of the LORD; but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil’” (1 Kings 22:8 NKJV). Micaiah promised, “As the LORD lives, whatever the LORD says to me, that I will speak” (1 Kings 22:14 NKJV). One person who quotes God’s Word outweighs hundreds who do not. Jesus said, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:16 NKJV).

10-2-2017 False Promises

“They have lied about the LORD, And said, ‘It is not He. Neither will evil come upon us, Nor shall we see sword or famine. And the prophets become wind, For the word is not in them” (Jeremiah 5:12-13 NKJV). False preachers teach false ideas and cause people to falsely believe that: (1) God either doesn’t exist, or doesn’t care, or doesn’t help; (2) nothing bad can happen to those who obey God. This causes frustration and rejection when something bad does happen! (3) People who listen to them are “tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting” (Ephesians 4:14 NKJV). (4) Lies about God are based in the Word of God, the Bible.
