The New revelation from New Prophets

Any “new revelation knowledge” from prophets is a competing rival for the Written Word. This is no different then practicing ex-cathedra. The Church is in trouble because some of its preferred leaders have led people to abandon belief in the absolute sufficiency of the Scriptures. Peter warned “That you be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior” (2 Peter 3:2). Jude admonished “But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Jude 17). These modern prophets and apostles are  leading us in a new direction away from the original apostles commands and practices.

Jeremiah 23:14 “Also I have seen a horrible thing in the prophets of Jerusalem.... They also strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns back from his wickedness...” Vs.20-22: “The anger of the LORD will not turn back against these false prophets until he has performed and carried out the purposes of His heart. In the latter days you will understand it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.  But if they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings.”

 There have always been false prophets, but in the last day’s (our time period) there will be an increase of false prophets that will try to lead God’s people into deception. Jesus said to beware a number of times in his ministry. But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues” (Matt 10:16-17). beware of covetousness.”(Luke 12:15) “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”(Matt 16:6) AND Jesus said “Beware of false prophets!” (Matthew 7:15)  

Mark 13:22 “false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders.”

Mt 24:11-12, 24: “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.” False prophets usually tell good things, flattering their listeners with smooth words (Lamentations 2:14). The real prophets were sent to Israel to preach repentance and bring the people back to a renewed obedience.

Jesus warns “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord HAVE WE NOT PROPHESIED in your Name--  I declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me” (Matthew 7:22-23).

They certainly appeared to do miracles and claimed to be doing His work - using His name (obviously it was a different Jesus who was their source of power). They claim all the works they accomplished were for him. But our Lord makes it clear that these were never His sheep; they were never under his leadership and spoke on their own accord. This can be noticed by how they adhere to the Scripture.

 2 Peter 2:1-3 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

The church at Pergamos held “the doctrine of Balaam” and held “the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.” (Revelation 2:14).

Balaam and the Nicolaitans. Peter spoke of “the way of Balaam” as one motivated with greed, “who loved the wages of unrighteousness” (2 Peter 2:15) and Jude addresses the dreamers who “have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit.”The Nicolaitans were those who ruled over the people, who made themselves unaccountable, could not be questioned. We have an ugly combination of both in our day.

Micah, a true prophet said  “Her heads judge for a bribe, her priests teach for pay, and her prophets divine for money. Yet they lean on the LORD, and say, "Is not the LORD among us? No harm can come upon us." (Micah 3:11).

You do not become rich by telling the truth but lying is very profitable. The more imaginative one is the more it attracts the restless hearers.

If there were no money involved many of these prophets would quit their ministry and find another easy vocation; no profit and there is no “new” prophet. For the Nicolaitan, once we allow them to be questioned they pack up and leave to be safe; which makes the sheep in our church safe as well
