2001 03 28.2-Thomas Gibson Prophetic Word
For thus saith the Lord. There are many prophets and there are many apostles which I am raising up in this day and in this age. For My people need to be led by those who I appoint and anoint to lead them.
But beware and be forewarned many are the false prophets and many are the false apostles. For they rise up by great number. You shall know them by their fruits. Look unto them and seek their fruits to see what they are. Do not run after them until you have sought what they are like.
Those of My people are of humble attitude––they seek not money, they seek not the love of this earth, they seek not importance of this earth, they seek not to be known, they seek not to be made a big name for themselves, they seek not a following.
But the earth, and those of the earth seek all these things. Remember there are three basic types of false prophets and of false apostles. Number one are those who are led by Satan. They are most deceptive and most destructive, for they really use the terminology of the church, but the heart is filled with evil. Then there are those, in the pride of trying to be important, have called themselves to a ministry which I did not call them too. This is evil, and I tell you it is sin! Then there are those who I have called who seek not My will but their own and have gone astray after their own minds.
All these will yield the fruits of the earth. They seek the pride, and the money, and the name, and the glory. They seek to raise themselves up and be great and be looked up to; but they are not of Me, for they have gone after the things of the earth, and I will have none of it, saith the Lord.
