Determining a True Prophet of God from a False Prophet

  • A true prophet of God will affirm that Jesus Christ is God come in human flesh (1 John 4:1-3).
  • A true prophet of God’s prophecies about the future will come true (Deuteronomy 18:20-22).
  • A true prophet of God will preach and commend allegiance to the one true God who has revealed Himself in Scripture (Deuteronomy 13:1-5).
  • A true prophet of God will bear good fruit, not only their life, but also in their doctrine (Matthew 7:15-23 & 24:4-5, 10-11, 23-25; Galatians 1:6-9).
