MOTIVATIONS FOR FALSE PROPHECY
A prophet speaks the will of God and God honours his word (I Sam 3:19). There have always been false prophets.
False prophecy may be motivated by the search for fame and material gains. A desire to please people or warm one’s way into authority. A desire to douse tension and give false or unfounded hope. It may be influenced by demonic possession or subjection (Jeremiah 28:1-17).
Let us beware of false prophets (Mt 7:15). They increase sin, bondage and yoke of individuals, people and nations. A false prophet shies away from the truth and is guided by the principles of the flesh so he cannot be effective guide for our souls (Mt 15:14). We should re-evaluate what kind of prophets we are or we listen to. May we love God enough to be true to him and be his true prophets through Christ Jesus.
