Some Characteristics of False Prophets

Question: What are some of the characteristics of False Prophets?


Matthew 7:15
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Matthew 7:16
Ye shall know them by their fruits.....

But what "fruits" exactly are going to work for this, since we also have this later on in Matthew?

Matthew 7:22
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy Name? And in the Thy Name have cast out Devils? And in thy Name done many wonderful works?

Matthew 7:23
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Plus this in Mark:

Mark 13:22
For false christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

False Prophets are seen to:
  • display signs and wonders,
  • cast out devils (deliverance)
  • make at least some prophecy-like declarations that came true
  • do many wonderful works
  • in some cases spend their lives, all the way up until they die, believing they are Real Prophets.
These things are not fruits that can be used to determine who is a False Prophet and who is a True Man of God. Both False Prophets and Real ones can do these things.
