Matthew 7:15-20 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you shall know them.


Sometimes people tell me they are fearful of being a false prophet and not knowing it.  It is my understanding that if someone is concerned of such, then they are not.  Rather they are working out their own salvation and in the process of cleansing their soul so that what they see and hear are good gifts from God.  


Philippians 2:12-13 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.


I am reminded of what the Lord told Annie in Annie’s Visions:  Those who were not His at all were devoid of fear, being certain that all was right with them. His own ones were careful and trembled before Him in the fear of the Lord. But those other ones had no fear at all and were deceitfully secure in their false state.


Isaiah 66:2 For all those things has my hand made, and all those things have been, says the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.


The Lord told us to discern/ separate the FRUITS of those who are deceived.  Fruit is the product of the seeds someone is feeding and nurturing in their life.  Scripture tells us the fruit of the devil is to:


·       Steal

·       Kill

·       Destroy

·       Accuse

·       Lie

·       Devour

·       Inspire lust of the eyes

·       Inspire lust of the flesh

·       Inspire pride and a haughty, unteachable spirit

·       Etc


John 10:10 The thief comes not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.


1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.


John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.


If a person is partnering with or feeding upon the above seeds, they are going to begin to produce these things from their own hearts, through their words and thoughts, dreams and visions.  


It is actually quite simple to discern the difference between good and evil.  God can only give good gifts and He is the Father of light.  The devil cannot give good gifts, he either makes a facsimile (copy) of good gifts or he produces that which is clearly dark and evil.


James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.


Occasionally the Lord will reveal what is going on in the second heaven, (places where the wicked rulers dwell) so that they come to light and be destroyed.  He will also reveal these things as warnings for His children to separate from the darkness, lest they be destroyed with it.  


If a person is only hearing and seeing second heaven things, or always in warfare, the Lord is calling them to come up higher above the snake line.  It is my personal opinion that if a person is only hearing and seeing what the devil does, they are vessels of dishonor and not vessels of honor.  When I see or hear something from the devil, I candle what I have been feeding upon.  I do not want to be a chamber pot but a vessel prepared for His glory.


Romans 9:21 Has not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor?


2 Timothy 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.


There are some prophets who prophesy both sides of good and evil that is coming.  It is very easy to discern bad news and prophesy it and watch it come to pass.  That doesn’t make someone a prophet.  It is much harder to know and express the heart of God to expose for His purposes so that His people repent and pray that these things will not come to pass.  God’s heart is to call people to prayer and repentance and stand in the gap.  He looks the world over for those who have His heart in prophesying.


Ezekiel 22:30-31 And I sought for a man among them, that should build up the wall, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. 31 Therefore have I poured out my indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, says the Lord GOD.
