Jeremiah 23:21 (NIV)
I did not send these prophets
This day and age we have all kinds of prophets, ministers and televangelists bombarding us with the "gospel". Their sermons are colorful, entertaining and riveting. Yet, even the Apostle Paul who was second only to Christ said that he was slow of speech and stuttered frequently. These "men of God" bamboozle us with their dynamic personalities and commercialized religion. As saints, we have to discern whether such men have been sent by God or the devil. Only the Holy Spirit can help us detect His fruit in their lives and avoid being deceived.
