    A must read for everyone involved or even interested in prophetic ministry. Full of warnings and guidelines based on scripture, with practical examples demonstrating how individuals moving in false or fleshly prophetic giftings have severely damaged people's lives. I reread this book every couple years to stay humble and focused in seeking to truly hear the Lord before prophesying.

    Bevere writes from experience and a Pentecostal perspective with considerable wisdom and insight. He sites numerous examples of ‘prophets’, preachers, etc. giving words of wisdom, prophecies, words of knowledge that have been shown in time to be erroneous. He lists practical ways to discern whether a word from another, even given in an authoritative tone, is from God or not. Genuine words of ‘guidance’ will come from a position of humility, gentleness, through the Holy Spirit and be proven out i Bevere writes from experience and a Pentecostal perspective with considerable wisdom and insight. He sites numerous examples of ‘prophets’, preachers, etc. giving words of wisdom, prophecies, words of knowledge that have been shown in time to be erroneous. He lists practical ways to discern whether a word from another, even given in an authoritative tone, is from God or not. Genuine words of ‘guidance’ will come from a position of humility, gentleness, through the Holy Spirit and be proven out in time to be accurate. They will bring forth good fruit, not divorce or division or confusion. He finds that false prophecies often appeal to people because they feed peoples' secret desires and motivations for gain and promotion. He warns about those who go about advertising their prophetic gifts and seek prestige. Coming as I do from a non-Pentecostal but evangelical background that believes deeply in the Word and the Spirit, many of the terms were unfamiliar to me. The sting of Jezebel, etc. In our circles and with our historical background in the great men of faith we would rather frame ‘prophecy’ as guidance that we test by whether it is biblical, fits our gifts and abilities, demonstrates wisdom, has the stamp of other godly and wise men to affirm it. "In the multitude of godly counselors is safety." There is much here with which all evangelicals can agree. Non-Pentecostals will learn from this book to be more appreciative of that segment of the Body of Christ. We all affirm, as he says on p158, “the love of truth sharpens our discernment and keep us error free.’

    As usual John Bevere is always bold when it comes to speak the truth of God's Word in accordance with the Scriptures. Not all so-called well-known Prophets/Prophetess speak the truth of God's Word but from their very own inspiration to cater to the carnal desires of men. This is when we need to be vigil whenever a person says he/she receives the Word from the Lord. "A man of God is not what he preaches but what he lives; his message is no greater than what he is.

This is when we need to be vigil whenever a person says he/she receives the Word from the Lord. "A man of God is not what he preaches but what he lives; his message is no greater than what he is. God finds vile our fleshly appetites and desires. When we seek to please ourselves or others more than we seek to please God, we fall prey to the danger of divination, and even worse to become a false prophet."

Flesh reproduces flesh, the spirit reproduces the spirit. Chapter 2: Widespread Deception. Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me; Psalms 81:8 KJV - God's warning us, but we're not listening. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 1 Corinthians 10:12 KJV - Be mindful of God's Word, not your own heart. Even Solomon, the wisest king ever, messed up, for he did not take heed to God's warnings. Teachings establishes us, but warnings protect us! For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24 KJV For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. Acts 20:29‭-‬31 KJV Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matthew 7:15 KJV - Note, He did not say wolves in Shepherd clothing! De slechte mensen en de valse leraren zullen steeds slechter worden en velen misleiden, zijzelf worden op hun beurt misleid door de duivel. 2 Timotheüs 3:13 HTB Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Acts 20:28‭, ‬30 KJV Teach me thy way, O Lord ; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. Psalms 86:11 KJV - Fear the Lord, and you will be fine. If we want to spot false prophecies, we must first train ourselves to identity the truth: 'All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: ' 2 Timothy 3:16 Definition of a prophet: Spokesman! Not a teller a future events.

    Enjoyed this book more than I expected to. I think the church tends to gloss over many of Jesus' warnings about being deceived. Or, as a lifelong Christian, I say, "It won't happen to me." But Bevere shows how important it is that we are on our guard, testing the things we hear against God's Word. The book started off strong, and the end got a little slower for me. But overall, a good read.

    from the soul than from actual revelations and experiences. I read the book ten years ago and this is the impression that remains. Just great ... now I have to read it again just to see whether these thoughts are right...

    One of my favorite books on the prophetic and a major encouragement to walk in the fear of the Lord when ministering prophetically. I'd encourage anyone in or around prophetic ministry to read it!!!!!

    An absolute-must-read for every Christian. I wish I'd found this book earlier in my own walk! Can't recommend this book enough.

    Mr Bevere helps you to understand What many hear from the pulpit or in the street or on tv may not be from the Lord after all.
