Comments: This is a “Prophet” series I did. I define a prophet is one who hears God and speaks for Him to bring deliverance or repentance to a people. Unfortunately the Bible speaks of false prophets who speak with authority but do not speak for God but for themselves. It is the false prophet that I am addressing in this series. No one consciously says proudly “I am a prophet of poison”, it would make it easy not to listen to him. But they come clothed in sheep clothing, they seem sincere and truly loving, but in the end they are wolves ready to devour you. I feel the call of God to speak his voice but this is the flip side to that call. It is very easy to not be follow the road of the false prophet and very difficult to follow the road of a true prophet of God because most often there is no financial gain for the true prophet of God. Kind of like being an artist. Hate is so poisonous. It destroys all that is good. There are many of us that have become prophets of hate instead of love. Sowing hate and fear instead of love and hope as Christ does.
