TEXAS GOSPEL STAFF
There are three words that I think are thrown around too often today. They are “God told me.”
I’ve had people tell me that God told them a certain politician would win an election or that God revealed some secret to them. One man told me years ago that God revealed to him that he would own the radio station at which I worked. None of these things came to pass.
Deuteronomy tells us something I would think is obvious: if what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place…that is a message the Lord has not spoken. And 2 Peter has a stern warning for those who falsely proclaim things in the name of God.
Do you keep on guard for those who appear to be speaking God’s word, but only deceive others, and quite possibly themselves as well?
