QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WITH PASTOR CHRIS

How can I distinguish between a false prophet and a prophet of God?

Question:

Thuria Musima from UGANDA asks:

Dear Pastor Chris,
How can I distinguish between a false prophet and a prophet of God?

Pastor Chris Answers:

Simple things, number one: a prophet of God draws people to God and not to other gods but to the father of our Lord Jesus Christ and draws people to the Word, not to himself or to some other god. And then, the things that he says come to pass. Now, that’s a little tricky because sometimes, you have a true prophet who makes mistakes (because there are some who have made mistakes). Don’t forget that you are not made a pastor, a prophet or an evangelist because you are perfect. So sometimes, some of them can make some mistakes and I don’t want you to judge them with their mistakes, because sometimes, out of enthusiasm (that’s over enthusiasm) or the expectations of those who are around them, they can do or say things that they are not supposed to do and then some might not even be living right and so things go wrong because they are not paying attention to the Holy spirit. But that does not make them false prophets. See, a true prophet can make mistakes and say the wrong thing, as a true evangelist can say the wrong thing. So sometimes, there are problems like that.

There are other distinguishing factors: does he walk in love? A key- walking in the love of Christ- is very important! Then, the consistency of the word of God in his mouth, because, as you have a false prophet, you can have a false pastor, you can have a false teacher, and then the Bible also talks about false brethren! So, it’s not only false prophets; there are false prophets according to the scriptures, there are false teachers according to the scriptures and there are false brethren according to the scriptures! And you are going to know all of these in the same way, sometimes not immediately. Sometimes it takes a while but you would see certain things consistently, especially faltering on the word of God consistently- that’s a major sign.

Then, there other problems that make it very difficult- you’ve got the use of material mediums. Incidentally, there are true Christians, true pastors, prophets, evangelists, teachers and so on, including apostles. There are true ones that have been misled into the use of material mediums, praying through certain things. They’ve got some cloth to pray through, they’ve got some holy water to pray through, they’ve got all of these stuffs and they are problems because a true prophet should not use them! But some of them have used them and are using them. So, it becomes rather difficult to distinguish between them for some people especially when you understand that sometimes some of these ministers have come from a background where they were children and grandchildren of juju priests and priestesses. Some of these things they have carried over into Christianity and they are using them. So, I’m saying that’s not enough to condemn them because they are using some things out of their ignorance. Someday soon they’d learn from those mistakes and stop using them. That is why that’s not enough to tell that they are false. But, if you listen to the Word of God that’s taught you, that’s the most important. Go to the scriptures for yourself and listen to what they are saying; compare what you are hearing to what is in the Word and that would help you because if that minister continues to falter on the word of God, you’ve got to know something is wrong. So, that’s the biggest sign.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PASTOR , THE DICTIONARY DID NOT CREATED THE WORD THAT I can qualify you but you are a gift to us; a precious Gift. The first time I saw you was this year in Ghana and you say that after this meeting things willl be happening in 10 year in our life. It will happen this year and even my familly who was laughing at me because I travelled from CONGO brazaville just for that meeting in Accra, they now believed that you are a man of God because the miracle has happened this year in my life. Everybody are just praising God when they look at me. I was in the last place in my company but after the meeting now, I am in the second place. I am now after the CEO of the company that have 380 workers. Words will not contain what I want to tell you but I love you ...and happy birthday.

Thank you Pastor Sir

Swile from Abuja, Nigeria

Dear Pastor, Thank you for the ministry of the word at work in your life. Thank you for giving me a brand new life again. In June 2016, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis and Systemic Lupus erythematosus, which are auto immune diseases that causes the body to attack itself. I had very painful joints all over my body. I had to like on medication daily, for the next 6 months, otherwise I would be unable to work or do anything. During the second day of the Partners Conference, you asked us to speak in tongues for 10 minutes. 10 minutes that will change destinies. After the prayers I started screaming in excitement, I knew I was free. Since that day, I have not felt any pain and have no need to take the pills again. I have not been able to stop telling people what God has done for me. I love you Pastor, Thank you. Sis Swile from Abuja, Nigeria

Dear Pastor Chris, I remember when I was in Lagos in 1998 and I stumble on the Man of God through atmosphere of miracle on television. Since that time I have not recover, My heart has glue to you. There is something that Holy Spirit always communicated to me through you. Your embodiment, gestures, manner of dressing, SIMPLICITY, pleasantness in answering rude questions, spirituality in handling of matters, radiating splendour of PEACE of CHRIST,excellence,giving validation to the WORD of TRUTH BY THE HOLY SPIRIT throuh miracles. THIS IS CHRISTIANITY ! There is something at work inside you and I know I shall be a partaker of this divine grace of God in you even as I comimmited myself to the instructions. God bless you sir.

I became born again at the NOB 2016(SA). Before the NOB Ive tried so many things out and connections from the people in higher positions hoping they assist in helping me find a job but none of plans were successful. After being born again i could feel that i was different from the person i used to be such that i had peace from within though i was still unemployed. I spent most the time studying the Scripture, meditating on it, praying in spirit and i started seeing visions. Four months later i was invited for an interview and strangely enough i had a vision about that similar company, I got the permanent job. God is wonderful i must say.
