 How To Know The Difference In Truth & False

By Apostle Cathryn Hughes

Corinthians 14:33 KJV says "For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints."


The Word of God is so amazing. It never leads you off-track, never misleads you, never gives false information, never encourages gossip, never teaches to give false prophecies. The Bible is always correct in all of it's content.

However, I wonder how many believers listen to people who set dates on Jesus return. For only God the Father knows the day or hour.  I wonder also how many listen to false prophets who make up many false predictions that never happen.


One time I had a friend who told me of a prophet said that Jesus was coming on a particular date. I told him that this man was not a prophet if he is sharing a date. For nobody, not even Jesus knows the day or hour.Only Father God Heaven knows when Jesus is returning. I was concerned that my friend was being gullible at false beliefs. One time he also told me that this same false prophet shared that the president of the USA was the anti-christ.

I shared with him to read the book of Daniel and to know that the Antichrist is from Syria as it's stated.

Did you realize that Christians have been saying that the last 4 presidents of the USA would be the anti-christ? That is how carried away they get. It's really sad when you think about it.  It amazes me how  gullible people are, especially Christians (who should know the Word of God).  We must stay with the Word in all things.

Instead of believing everything that people say, we need to know scripture and what it says and stay in the peace and joy of God. We must follow the Word of God and not get sidetracked. This is how people get into cults and end up falling away.

In  James 3:16 "For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work."

TRUTH:

John 1:14 says
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth
.

John 3:21
But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.


John 4:23
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.


John 4:24
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

John 8:32
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 14:17
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 17:17
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Even in these world situations, many become paniced and paranoid. When in reality, according to scripture, no matter what goes on around us, we are to stay focused on the Hope of Glory in Christ Jesus and keep our Joy in God. Not get carried away with the troubles of this earth. Prayer works better than worry. AMEN

When we stay in the Word,  and know the Truth we do not have to fall into confusion from what people say. For we know what God says! AMEN

I love this scripture in Psalm 71:1
In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.

I thank God that we get our answers and guidance from the Words of God alone. We don't need man to teach us for the Holy Spirit reveals all Truth to us. And surely, He does not lead us into false teachings, lies, rumors, and gossip.

I am at a point in my life that I know many are getting caught up in anger, doubt, and many put their trust in humans, rather than God. Many are paranoid of todays situation. It's all a trap of the enemy, and this is what the enemy wants the Christians to stumble into. I am determined to keep my faith in God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, and the promises of the Word. I want peace in my life and can always have it with my Savior. And peace and love can reign without confusion! AMEN

Another thing I think we need to keep strongly in mind about people is this scripture Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

If you remember the words of Jesus said in Matthew 24, and read it slow and carefully, and then, things will be more clear to you when you want to hear
others with their prophecies, and you will  not fear anything that comes about on this earth.  If we follow the Words of Jesus. We will have peace. AMEN

The Word does not lie, yet people do all the time. And many believers follow the lies, and go along with them. Sometimes people say things to impress
and sound good, and people follow this, and it's actually is sin, and pride  of man. We must be careful to keep our armor on and know the Truth and not have to get lead into the ditch.

So, how can we determine what is real and what isn't?

When God is giving a person a real message, or real divine prophecy. It will always come to pass.

2 Peter 1:20
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

2 Peter 1:21
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

You know how the Bible says that man cannot live by bread alone? I believe that we can't live by man's  prophecy alone. It must be God given and be a real divine message of truth from God.

The Word makes it clear what False Prophets were about:

Matthew 7:15
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves
.

Matthew 24:11
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

As you read all of Matthew 24 please note how Jesus said not to fear when we see these signs come to pass. For as you and I know, if we know God, and are Christain, we have no reason to fear anything at all except God. AMEN

Matthew 24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

1 John 4:1
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Read also Mark 13 Chapter and

2 Peter 2:1-3
 1But 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.
2And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3And 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.

Note: Verse two says Pernicious ways.
Do you know what Pernicious means?  According to the yahoo education dictionary it means:
1. Tending to cause death or serious injury;
2. Causing great harm; destructive: pernicious rumors.
 
How many times to you see Christians listening to many rumors on the media and on TV, or online? Some even cause great harm and even death to people.
Are we to follow the world in this? God forbid! Many believe anyone who says anything to them. Isn't this right?

If we keep the Word in our minds, and know what it  says, we will not fall for
all the gossip, all the lies that are told. We will seek God and see what He says to us. We will know according to truth of the Bible what is real and what isn't. For the Holy Ghost will show us in our spirit. We have no need to be
gullible and spreading rumors. AMEN

To be honest, I withdrawal myself from those who are just sharing things that are rumors, of other people's business,and if I come across many of these prophecies that are questionable, I steer away from them.  I make sure they follow the Word, before I will believe them. It's very important to be careful not to be gullible and believe everything.

I hope this information helps some of you, who are confused by some of the things said by Christians who claim to be a prophets. Or by things on TV.

God Bless you and hope you have a very peaceful and loving week, without stress or worry. Knowing we have confidence in God, following what Jesus said and what the Word promises us through eternity by the leading of the Holy Spirit.

May the peace of God reign in your hearts and Mind until Jesus comes!
God Bless
