Hananiah, a false prophet, stood before the people of Judah and told them a lie. He said it convincingly. Enough so that the people believed him.
Jeremiah, a true prophet of God, stood after Hananiah and reminded the people that Hananiah would be either proven as a true prophet or false prophet based on the result of his prophecy.
How can we tell if we should be taking advice from someone? Following after someone’s teachings? Looking to someone for guidance?
Check their fruits. Are the fruits of the Spirit evident in their life? In what they do?
Hananiah was proven to be a false prophet because the prophecy he gave wasn’t fulfilled.
God has given you the knowledge to discern between a true leader and false leader.
Wisely, prayerfully, decide who you attach yourself to.
