What Is A False Prophet?

For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. -Ephesians 6:12

“Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves.”

 Matthew 7:15

What is a false prophet? A person with the goal of destroying your faith by bringing you a false gospel by using the Bible with small adjustments to make you get your faith off track. The way to see this adjustment is to concentrate on the person of Jesus Christ. The false prophets will aim at Jesus because He is the source of our salvation. The deceiver wants you to believe in a different Jesus so that your prayers will be rerouted to a false Christ/demon, making your prayers ineffective to fight against the demonic forces.

Below is a list of cults that have developed a false Jesus and that He is not the only way to the Father which false prophets will introduce to deceive you, you have been warned, stay alert.
