Bible verses about "the false prophet" | BLB

1 Timothy 4:1-3

1 But the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 in the hypocrisy of liars, having been seared in the own conscience, 3 forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods that God created for reception with thanksgiving by the faithful and those knowing the truth.

Revelation 13:1-18

1 And I saw rising out of the sea a beast, having ten horns, and seven heads, and on its horns, ten diadems, and upon its heads, names of blasphemy. 2 And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, and its feet like a bear’s, and its mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave to it his power, and his throne, and great authority. 3 And one of its heads was as having been slain to death. And its wound of death was healed, and the whole earth marveled after the beast. 4 And they worshiped the dragon, who had given authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? And who is able to make war against it?” 5 And a mouth was given to it, speaking great things and blasphemy, and it was given authority to act forty and two months. 6 And it opened its mouth unto blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, those dwelling in heaven. 7 And there was given to it to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. And authority was given to it over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. 8 And all dwelling on the earth will worship it, of whom their names have not been written from the founding of the world in the book of life of the Lamb having been slain. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 “If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity he goes; If anyone is to be killed with the sword, by the sword it is necessary for him to be killed.” Here is the endurance and the faith of the saints. 11 And I saw another beast rising out of the earth, and it had two horns like a lamb, and it was speaking like a dragon. 12 And it exercises all the authority of the first beast in the presence of it, and causes the earth and those dwelling in it, that they will worship the first beast, of whom its fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it works great signs, so that it should even cause fire out of heaven to come down to the earth in the presence of men. 14 And it deceives those dwelling on the earth, by reason of the signs that were given to it to perform before the beast, telling those dwelling on the earth to make an image to the beast that has the wound of the sword and has lived. 15 And there was given to it to give breath to the image of the beast, so that image of the beast also should speak, and should cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast would be killed. 16 And it causes all the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the servants, that it should give them a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and that no one should be able to buy or to sell, if not the one having the mark—the name of the beast, or the number of its name. 18 Here is the wisdom. The one having understanding, let him count the number of the beast, for it is a man’s number, and its number is six hundred sixty-six.

1 John 4:1-6

1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses Jesus Christ having come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not of God, and this is that of the antichrist, which you heard that is coming, and now is already in the world. 4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because the One in you is greater than the one in the world. 5 They are of the world; because of this they speak from out of the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are of God. The one knowing God listens to us. He who is not of God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.

1 John 4:1

1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
