This ministry is devoted to analyzing the prophecies of those who claim to be prophets of God. In the Bible, Prophets claimed to be speaking for God. However, now that we have the completed canon of Scripture we will be comparing what these prophets say with scripture, like good Bereans. With the help of the Holy Spirit, you can make up your own mind if they are truly speaking the Word of God.
Jesus warned us: "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits." (Matthew 7:15)
If you look closely at today's False Prophets and False Teachers, many of them are living in mansions, driving fancy cars and living a lavish lifestyle. Compare these false shepherds stealing from the sheep to the prophets in the Bible. Prophets in the Bible who distorted the Words of God didn't last very long.
Can a True Prophet Have Failed Prophecies?
Paul told the Thessalonians:
"For our exhortation [as apostles] does not come from error or impurity or by way of deceit; but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men but God, who examines our hearts." (1 Thess. 2:3)
Please notice that Paul claimed that his teachings were not in error, or in an attempt to deceive or were they in any way impure. And yet today's "apostles" and "prophets," and their followers claim that error is ok. It really makes you wonder which bible are they reading, especially when we are told in scripture to not even listen to those who prophesy falsely and to ignore them:
"If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has NOT spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him."(Deut. 18:22).
Are the Any True Prophets Today?
The author of this site has not found any true prophets today because every single so-called Christian prophet of God that has been analyzed on this site has had either failed prophecies or is teaching another gospel or both which proves that God is not speaking through them.

What does Scripture say about Those Preaching Another Gospel?
This site also analyzes false teachers that are teaching another gospel, promoting replacement theology, denying the trinity or distorting other bible doctrines. Before we proceed please check out the Scriptural definition of the true Gospel: Saved by Grace Through Faith because a lot of todays preachers also distort the Gospel of Grace.
We are also given stern warnings about anyone perverting the true gospel with destructive heresies:
"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel--which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!" (Galatians 1:6-9).
Lori, I discovered your website and I wanted to commend you on the fine work you have done in dealing with the problem of false prophets, Apostles, and teachers in the church and world today. What I read I thought was spot on. The preference of so many professing Christians for experiential Christianity vs Biblical Christianity is both troubling and discouraging. Thank you for your labor of love in your Discernment ministry. God bless you. In His service, Randy S.
