By their fruit you will recognize them

The disciples of Christ are known each other, and they are known each other by their fruits, in the same way, those who are not His disciples are also known in the same way, and Jesus warns us about this so we do not let ourselves be deceived. The Bible tells us what the true gospel of Christ is and we must study the Word so as not to be deceived by false prophets.

Jesus told us:

15 Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.

Matthew 7:15-17

Christ Himself commands us to guard against false prophets, those who come to us with something completely different from the gospel, offering us things that Christ has never offered us, and the only way for us to know when they are bringing us something that is not Gospel is reading and studying the Holy Scriptures.

The false prophets are known by their fruits and Christ tells us that every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. Let’s take care of the bad trees that are out there, since their fruits are bad and we can not do the same as they do. In the same way remember that the bad tree is cut and thrown into the fire, because there is no need to have it.

Let us ask God to show us through His Word how to bear fruit for salvation, to teach us to do His will.

    Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. (Matthew 7:5)
    During long years in the history of the Church of God we have heard about other people that teach false doctrines. So we have also read about others who confess their Christian faith and they are undercover unbelievers.
    “You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” said the Lord in Matthew 7:16.
    Both are ministers of the evil, who are waiting for false earnings and do not look for the Glory of God.
    May the Lord God save us from such a kind of people in the Church of the Lord Amen.
