With the rise of true seers, is it any surprise we're seeing false seers? Maybe you haven't seen one yet—or maybe you just haven't discerned them yet—but they are rising with manipulative cunning.
Jesus warned us about false prophets in Matthew 7:15. I think The Passion Translation puts a new light on this verse: "Constantly be on your guard against phony prophets. They come disguised as lambs, appearing to be genuine, but on the inside they are like wild, ravenous wolves!"
Jesus gave us a second warning about false prophets in Matthew 24:11 in the end times. He said, "And many lying prophets will arise, deceiving multitudes and leading them away from the path of truth."
This deception is happening now. It's not only emanating from prophetic merchandisers we quite easily recognize, but also from sinister seers we aren't too familiar with.
In truth, we've had a lot more training on how to hear the voice of God and judge a prophecy than we've had on visual revelation like seeing in the spirit or dreaming dreams. (That's why I've launched The School of the Seers and The Company of Seers, as well as The Global Prophetic Center.)
Dream: Warned About a False Seer
Recently, I had a dream in which I unexpectedly found myself on the same conference banner as someone who I knew (in the dream) was a false seer. This "prophet" was a last-minute addition to the event or I would not have agreed to attend.
(I am as careful who I share a platform with as I can be. I won't knowingly minister with false prophets—even in dreams.)
Since I was already on my way there and did not want to cancel on the host, I kept moving forward, trusting the Lord to work it out.
