(I had posted this on another site, but was encouraged to post again — this confirmed what the Lord had resonated within my heart. So here it is) This is a video clip of Oprah Winfrey. Very scary because she has watchers in the millions, including Christians. Matt 7:15 ""Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves."
Matt 24:11 "and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people."
Matt 24:24 "For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect–if that were possible."
2 Cor. 11:12-15 "And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve."
I Tim. 6:3-5 "If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, 4 he is conceited and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions 5 and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain." (whoa!)
I John 4:1 "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."
It is okay to test the word of a teacher. It is okay to question their teachings and beliefs. I think that if a person in their teaching has God wrong from the get go, we should not listen to that person, because then everything that follows is based upon a false foundation of belief. Paul did it himself, and you can read about that in 2 Corinthians. Just because there appears to be a "move of God" does not necessarily mean it is God — we were warned of these things to come in the end times. Sound doctrine is important!
I've been questioning myself as to why I believe what I believe. If I do not know what I believe then I may fall for anything. More on that later. Blessings to you!
