Readers, I want to point out something important.  I paraphrase a lot of things the Bible says, but don’t give references.  If you are not a Christian, it may not matter to you–it is the Holy Spirit that draws you.  If you are a Christian–has this bothered any of you?

If you know the Bible well, then probably not, because you know these things.  But if you don’t know the Bible well, and you want to question where something is written in the Bible–please ask!  It is important that you don’t believe everything you hear.  Many deceivers and lies are in the world–and even those of us who strive to be truthful, can sometimes be mistaken.  Always be on guard!

The Bible tells us (1 John 4:2-3) how to recognize the Spirit of God.

“Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.”

In God’s Word, not one word is spoken in vain.  Every word here is important.  It’s easy to skim over it and miss the meaning.

A lot of false/antichrist religions acknowledge that Jesus lived on Earth–so how can this passage be true?

Let me add my comments and emphases here:

“Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus (the human being) Christ (the Messiah, the Savior that God has sent, God himself) has come in the flesh ( is Jesus) is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus (as the promised savior/messiah, who came and lived on Earth) is not from God.”

The test is whether they acknowledge that Jesus came to Earth and that He is the Messiah–the Savior, God in the flesh.

Please look around and reevaluate some of the religions that you may have thought passed the test.  If they only recognize Jesus as being a good man, a teacher, or a prophet–they are not from God, but are antichrist (anti=against, Jesus being the, christ=promised one, messiah, savior) because they do not recognize that Jesus is the Christ.

Christ was not Jesus’ last name!  Every time ‘ Jesus Christ’  is spoken, or written, it is an acknowledgment that  Jesus is the savior that God promised to send, to save mankind from our sins!

So, in answer to the title: Was Jesus a prophet?  Yes–and much, much more!!

Was Judas Set Up . . . By Jesus?

A ‘Sleeper’ Doctrine?
