Text: Deuteronomy 13:1-18
One of the ways God tested His people was by sending false prophets who would see dreams and do miraculous signs and wonders that would come true (vv.1-5). If the truth of Scripture was not being taught, it didn’t matter if dreams
came true – don’t listen. In fact the false prophets were to be executed.
Today there are many people who call themselves prophets. They say they do miracles and have dreams that come true. Should we follow them? No! The Bible is complete, nothing else will be added and nothing else is needed. All Scripture is fulfilled in Jesus Christ, He is the foundation (Matt.7:24; 1 Cor.3:11), and His apostles are the final writers of God’s revelation (Eph.2:20). Let people do and say whatever they want. You stay with Jesus and the Word of God, the
absolute foundation.

Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray for many who are lost to false teachers. Redeem them. Amen.
