10 Tests Of A Prophet

The Bible provides ten key indicators that determine whether a person is truly receiving visions from God.

According to Scripture, true prophets ...

  • Make predictions that “come to pass” (Jeremiah 28:9)
  • Glorify God rather than themselves (John 16:13)
  • Do not give their own private interpretations (2 Peter 1:20, 21)
  • Point out sin (Micah 3:5–8)
  • Warn of coming judgment (Isaiah 24:20, 21)
  • Edify the church (1 Corinthians 14:3, 4)
  • Give messages that harmonize with the Bible (Isaiah 8:20)
  • Teach that Jesus came in the flesh (1 John 4:1–3)
  • Have a Christ-like character (Matthew 7:16–20).
  • Are obedient to the will of God (Deuteronomy 18:18).

Modern psychics simply don’t measure up! Their predictions fail often. They sometimes seem more interested in acquiring fame than in glorifying God. They rarely point out sin or warn of judgment. They often espouse astrology, palm reading, reincarnation, and spirit communication—all of which are condemned in the Word of God.

What’s worse, they don’t adhere to biblical teaching, nor do they generally teach the Christian doctrine of the incarnation of Christ. And the fruits of their teachings, as well as their lives, are often out of harmony with the Bible. Jesus says of them, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:16).
