False prophets

False prophets are everywhere on Facebook, writing their "words from the Lord". God led me to scripture this morning after I saw another false "word from the Lord" last night on FB. The second time I see a similar word from the Lord from two different "prophetesses" in 18 days.

It seems like the message they want to get out there is for us to not pray so much, because one "word from the Lord" said to stop asking God for things, He already knows what we need, so stop asking (I wrote about that in my previous blog entry, click the link to read it) and the other "word from the Lord" from another "prophetess" said that God says we do not have faith and we show it by our actions and our words, because we keep asking for the same thing over and over again.

Well that contradicts scripture because in Matthew 7:7-12 Jesus tells us to keep on asking, keep on knocking and to keep on searching and the door will be opened. Also the parable of the judge and the persistant widow tells us to keep on asking, to basically pester God in prayer! :)

The Bible also tells us to pray unceasingly!

There seems to be a common thread in certain "words from the Lord" pray less, stop asking.

So this morning after prayer, God led me to Jeremiah 8:8 and the last part of that scripture jumped at me.
Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood.
These "prophetesses" are writing false words from the Lord.

Stay in prayer and keep on reading your Bibles saints! How else will we discern the lies from the truth? The devil is sending a message through these false prophets that we should cut down on prayer. If he could have his way he would prefer we do not pray at all! God bless you who read this. ♥

The Parable of the Persistent Widow

Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’”
Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
Luke 18:1-8 

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

"How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us'?
Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood.
Jeremiah 8:8
