20 Bible Verses About Bad Prophecy
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about bad prophecy.
Hearing bad prophecy concerning your life from people especially those we know to be God’s prophet and ministers can be scary and unpleasing to the ear. It gives us that unsettling feeling and can also make us scared because of how bad the prophecy is.
The good news in today’s topic is that no evil shall come near our dwelling and every one who curses us shall be cursed instead of us. So whenever we hear of bad prophecy what we should do is to reject and rebuke it in the name of God and not to dwell in it to much as we have God by our side who will not even allow evil to come near our dwelling and won’t allow us to be mocked by our enemies too.
Twenty bible verses have been collected to help us to know what to do when we are given bad prophecy and how we can come against it in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ name.
1. Matthew 7:15-20
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
2. 1 John 4:1-6
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them.
3. 2 Peter 2:1
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
4. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
