Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
True prophets proclaim God’s truth and grace. The false prophets of Jeremiah’s day told the people of Israel what they hoped to hear and condoned their sinful paths of passion. The false prophets of our day, sometimes tell us what we want to hear, but more often proclaim conspiracy theories and the floods of human foolishness, and encourage the all kinds of entanglements with testy technology, idealistic issues, and projected passions. The result of false prophesies in no matter what age, is that the people do not repent and turn back to the Holy One, and continue to make up and follow false ways that lead to death and destruction rather than light and love. Am I listening to false prophesies or walking in false ways that are outside the light of the life and death of Christ Jesus? Or am I heeding God’s call to repentance and to conversion back to him in holiness and humility? Holy Spirit, keep me from false prophesies and false ways.
Put false ways far from me; and graciously teach me your law. (Psalm 119:29)
If the devil cannot make us bad, he will make us busy.
