  • 2 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them (Matt. 7:15-20) Wolves in Sheeps Clothing

  • 3 A prophet of God was one who could foresee and issued Spirit guided teaching (1 Cor. 12:8-10). There was protection in place (1 Cor. 12:10; I Jn. 4:1; 2:20). One could and can also ascertain false prophets based on their teaching (1 Jn. 4:2-3; 2 Jn. 9-11) and life (Gal. 2:14; 2 Cor. 11:13-15). Wolves in Sheeps Clothing When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him (Duet. 18:22).

  • 6 Earlier this year, I went out to look for a new car. I went to the first dealership, but I felt uncomfortable in my spirit about the place. He could not find me the kind of car I really wanted, and the stories he told me changed several times. I ended up going to another dealership and buying a new car from them. They sold me a car that was precisely what I wanted, and at a very advantageous price. I felt good in my spirit about this deal and this dealership. When the salesman from the first dealership found out that I had bought a car from another dealership, he went into a rage. He tracked me down, confronted me in a parking lot and screamed obscenities at me. Wow. I had no idea that salesman and that dealership was evil like that. And if the salesman and the dealership management were this obnoxious to me before a sale, how would they have been concerning follow-up experiences like standing by the warranty on their car? They were probably just as unreasonable on the follow-up matters too. I didnt know these people were crooks, but the Holy Ghost did. Ive had no regrets at all with the dealership I ended up buying from. And their follow-up has been excellent also. They have fulfilled to me every part of the car's warranty. It pays to listen to the Spirit of God. He will save you money and trouble if you'll listen to him.

  • 24 In November of 2007 I made the following request of a preaching brother: Could you please send me any of YOUR material, such as articles, PowerPoint sermons, sermon outlines or tapes of your study on the subject of marriage, divorce and remarriage? You can send any material to the email address or PO Box below. I look forward to receiving your material. This preacher answered my request as follows: Brother McClure, in regard to your request for my material, the answer is No. I pray your work is doing well. Wolves in Sheeps Clothing

  • 25 Another preaching brother was asked the following questions: Do you believe Gods law on marriage is universal? In other words, does it apply to believers and unbelievers? Do you believe one put away for the cause of fornication may scripturally remarry? Do you believe repentance demands that those who are in an unscriptural marriage separate? Do you believe 1 Corinthians 7:15 constitutes authority for one who is deserted by an unbeliever to remarry? He answered in part as follows: I dont know whether to envy or pity those who are so sure of themselves on this subject...I dont want to appear rude, but I wont be answering your specific questions.
