25 important bible verses about false teachers


The Uniqueness of Delusion and Reality

At the time of writing this article, Statisticians estimate that there are over 8 billion people worldwide. Out of the eight billion people, 1.4 billion are in Africa, 334 million are in America, 4.7 billion are in Asia, 740 million are in Europe, 26 million are in Australia, and about 1000 are in Antarctica.

Analyzing the population, you will realize that everyone has a unique fingerprint. God created us uniquely. However, some people look alike. I have met people telling me they saw me in a different location.

Meanwhile, I have not been in that place physically. Someone might resemble me. However, we are not the same because our Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) differs. In the same way, some people think Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese resemble.

Most Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese look alike. However, they are different. Some people say Africans resemble. Generally, Africans look alike. It might be true. However, our mindset differs. Americans, Europeans, Asians, Africans, and Australians have unique philosophies.

Seeing one of my family members might make you think we are twins. However, we have a different perspective. Generally, we may agree on specific issues. However, it doesn’t mean we will agree on everything.

The fact that some Americans, Europeans, Asians, Africans, and Australians are racists does not mean all of them are racist. There will be some Americans, Europeans, Asians, Africans, and Australians who are not racist.

In the same way, the fact that some Africans are corrupt does not mean all Africans are corrupt. In every continent, there are real and false people. No matter how strong and authentic your currency is, there will always be fake currencies.

In the same way, every organization, institution, and religious body has real and fake people. Encountering false people in an organization does not necessarily mean everybody is fake. You need wisdom to differentiate between real and false people.

Even in the animal kingdom, there are real and false ones. We have different temperaments and personalities. Some people are introverts, while some are extroverts. Some, too, are optimists, while others are pessimists.

Analyze your family, friends, and animals. You will realize that some are sociable while others are reserved. Some dogs are introverts, while others are extroverts. If animals differ, how much are human beings?

So, what is my point here? I’m expanding your mind in differences. How you analyze something might be different from someone’s perspective. This is one reason you must not be quick to judge and condemn.

To be an expert, you must check both sides. Use the Holy Scriptures as your reference point because the Word will never pass away. One of the most dangerous kingdoms to judge is the body of Christ Jesus (the Church).

If you are not born again, be careful with the body of Christ Jesus. Don’t criticize servants of God and the Church because someone criticizes them. Don’t make fun of faithful Churches and true servants of God because there are repercussions.

The Church is a spiritual body. You may not understand some things about the Church and servants of God. If you don’t understand the Church and servants of God, seek counseling, pray, or keep silent.

This is a warning to the enemy of the Church (unbelievers and religious unbelievers). If you are not born again, don’t bring curses on yourself and your bloodline by your false accusation. Wrongfully judging a genuine church and faithful servants of God attracts judgment (the wrath of God).

Before criticizing and exposing a church or servant of God, be led by the Holy Spirit. Make sure you are born again. Let your criticism have a foundation in the Word (the Holy Bible). It takes spiritual people to judge spiritual things.

A faithful servant of God might receive an instruction from the Holy Spirit to do a particular thing. The fact that you don’t understand the transaction does not mean it is false (fake). If you are full of the Holy Spirit, you will discern the authenticity of spiritual leaders and faithful Churches.

However, if you are carnal or worldly, you might condemn faithful servants of God and true Churches. This is one reason you must apply wisdom when dealing with the Church and servants of God.

If you don’t have the “rod and staff” to control the body of Christ Jesus, keep silent! Don’t join ignorant people to misjudge innocent churches and faithful servants of God. If you intentionally criticize and destroy the Church and God’s servants without the approval of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, the Holy Spirit will not spare you (meditate on Mark 3:28-30). This is one reason I expose false churches and fake ministers with the Word of God (the Holy Scriptures).  


Wolves in Sheep Clothing

In his letters to the Church in Corinth, Apostle Paul emphasized wolves in sheep's clothing.


For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV

If you read the entire chapter of the above Holy Scriptures, you will realize that Apostle Paul talked about offertory, fake Christians, and false leaders. Paul wrote that there are false apostles and deceitful workers who pretend to be apostles of Christ.

Numerous false church organizers, worshippers, cleaners, singers, preachers, ushers, evangelists, and workers are not working for God and the Church. Their main assignment is to steal from innocent and ignorant people.

Such people come into the Church as spies. Some, too, enter the Church for their personal needs. Maybe they need marriage, jobs, food, clothing, and other basic needs. Coming to Church for a husband, wife, job, or help is not evil.

However, ignoring Christ Jesus, the Holy Bible, the Holy Spirit, and salvation becomes evil. False Christians and leaders have no vision for the Church. They don’t care about the sheep and lambs.

False leaders and fake ministers of God don’t care about Church growth. Counterfeit Christians are unconcerned about the Church's finances, welfare, and expansion. They are selfish. These “Christians” only care about their security, power, and fame.

Apostle Paul warns us that they are deceitful workers. They pretend to be spiritual. However, they don’t understand spirituality. These “Christians” and ministers give false prophecies to lure women into sex.

They speak sweet words to lure people into illicit sex! False ministers target the rich and wealthy people and reject the poor members of the Church. They only prophesy to people who can give extensive offerings!


For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

2 Corinthians 11:13 KJV

I hope you got the point. False apostles (prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers) work in the vineyard. They have nothing to do with the Holy Bible and the Holy Spirit. These are religious unbelievers!

Like the Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes, and Sanhedrin’s. They act as if they are called and chosen by God. These legalistic vessels have no relationship and fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

If you read the gospels, you will see that Christ Jesus rebuked the religious hypocrites. These people are not born again. They sit in the Church yet use charms. These people visit evil shrines and make demonic sacrifices. We must be watchful of these wolves in sheep's clothing because they are dangerous. They will deceive you if you are not sensitive to the Holy Spirit and full of the Word.


And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

Apostle Paul further states that Satan can transform into an angel of light. The devil can act as a righteous vessel. It takes the Word and inner witness of the Holy Spirit to detect these false vessels.

The fact that someone mentions the name of Jesus does not mean that God Almighty (Yahweh) has called and chosen the person. False leaders can use the name of Jesus. However, they use a different name (power) in their spirit and soul.

Some people mention Jesus's name yet don’t believe in him and his teachings. Such are false leaders and fake Christians. Anyone who desires human worship is not from God. Worship belongs to God Almighty.

The creature cannot take the crown of the Creator (Christ Jesus). We are God’s creation. We bow before the Creator. Any creature who makes other creatures worship him is a son of the devil. God Almighty alone deserves worship (see Luke 4:5-8).


Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

2 Corinthians 11:15 KJV

Paul further writes that the devil has ministers (Satanic Churches, witchcraft covens, and occult societies). Some of them act like ministers of righteousness. They mix false doctrine with the truth. False ministers misinterpret the Holy Scriptures. By their works (teachings, associates, and deeds), we shall know them (meditate on Matthew 7:15-16).


Apostle John's secret keys to detecting false prophets and fake Christians

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1 John 4:1-3 KJV

Apostle John, the evangelist, writes that we shouldn’t believe in every spirit. However, we should test, examine, and scrutinize whether a minister claiming to be a servant of God is from Christ Jesus.

Testing, examining, and scrutinizing a servant of God reveals his heart. If that person is from God, we will see the fruits of the Holy Spirit (see Galatians 5:22-23). However, after scrutinization, a false leader will not exhibit the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

False leaders will exhibit the fruits of the flesh after scrutinization (see Galatians 5:19-21). False leaders often rebel and act in the devil's way when scrutinized. Apostle John further wrote that there are many false prophets. This means false prophets have been around for a long time. Using Apostle John’s criteria, we can detect faithful servants of God and true churches by these confessions.


How to detect true servants of God and faithful churches

How to detect true servants of God and faithful churches

1. Vessels and churches that confess and acknowledge Christ Jesus are from God.

2. Churches and vessels that boldly declare to have a covenant with Christ Jesus are from God.

3. Churches and vessels that confess that Christ Jesus came into the flesh are from God.

4. Vessels and Churches that confess that Christ Jesus was born of a virgin Mary are from God.  

5. Churches and vessels that confess that Christ Jesus died and rose on the third day are from God.  

5. Finally, vessels and Churches confess that Christ Jesus is God Almighty are true.


How to detect false churches and fake ministers of God

How to detect false churches and fake ministers of God

  • Anyone or any Church that agrees that Christ Jesus is not God is false.
  • Anyone who rejects that Christ Jesus did not come in the flesh is false. That is, anyone who denies that Christ Jesus was not born of the Virgin Mary is false.
  • Thirdly, anyone who cannot boldly confess publicly and privately that Christ Jesus is God Almighty is false.

“Ministers of God,” leaders, and people who reject Christ Jesus's divinity have the antichrist spirit. Such people are false! Do not follow such “churches” and personalities. Following such vessels and “churches” can lead to the lake of fire.


Some visions from the Lord

I had this vision around 2022. I saw a renowned Bishop in Ghana walking on a road. In the vision, I tried catching up with him. In other words, I was following him tightly. In the vision, I wanted to touch him. I tried my best to touch him with my hands. Surprisingly, when my hands drew nearer, he turned into a chameleon changing colors!


Lessons from the dream

Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.

For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:5-8 KJV

Don’t put all your faith in human beings because they can lie (meditate in Numbers 23:19). It doesn’t matter how spiritual a person is; do not put all your trust in them. Limit your faith in humankind because some “ministers of God” and leaders are dangerous and deceptive.

The Holy Bible states that we should believe in his prophets, not demonic and deceptive prophets (see 2 Chronicles 20:20). The Holy Bible did not say you should put your faith in prophets. Believe differs from faith. Put your faith in the Lord.


Vision about the two ministers

In this vision, I saw two famous African gospel ministers. One is from Ghana, and the other is from Nigeria. In the vision, I was following them. Suddenly, the one from Nigeria opened a strange gate.

When he opened the strange gate, I saw weird spiritual beings! When the strange spiritual beings came from the door, the other bishop from Ghana tried to close the door. Then, I saw myself fighting the strange beings with a sword. I was fighting the strange spirits from the strange door in a strange land. My sword was not sharp enough to cut through the strange spirits!


Lesson from vision

Don’t follow a minister of God because of his fame, power, and wealth. Doing that is to your detriment. Following a deceptive spiritual leader can generate unnecessary spiritual battles. Be led by the Holy Spirit before choosing a spiritual leader (meditate on Matthew 7:15-16).


My experience with a false leader

I remember joining an ordained “minister of God” in Koforidua (eastern region of Ghana). In my heart, I wanted to help him build his “ministry.” The mistake I made was that I did not pray before joining him.

An ordained minister of God warned me before joining him. However, I followed my zeal. I was helping that minister in prayers. Before the service started, I helped arrange the “church premises” with the help of his assistant.

Before joining that ministry, the “minister of God” had a personal assistant. I befriended his assistant since we were doing the same work. We organized fasting and prayers. However, his assistant was not active.

I asked his assistant why he was inactive in the fasting and prayer session. However, his response was unconvincing. He complained that the “head pastor” had some bad behavior. Initially, I disagreed with him.

I’m not the type that loves gossip. In my mind, I thought the pastor’s assistant was destroying the “head pastor.” However, a time came when I did not see his assistant in church service. The “head pastor” told me to concentrate on my task.

In my ignorance, I kept helping the “head pastor.” After some time, I began having issues with the “head pastor.” No one was coming to the Church. Since I joined the "Church," I could only count his wife, three children, and the personal assistant who left.

I did not understand why people failed to join “the Church.” When I asked the “head pastor” why his assistant was not coming, he responded smartly. He said his assistant was disobedient. He said many bad things about his assistant.

However, I was concerned about the Church's growth. No one was joining “the Church.” We did evangelism. However, the people in the area did not join “the Church.” One thing that shocked me was that the head pastor’s eldest son, about twelve years old, showed little or no interest in his father’s Church.

However, I was working hard to make “the church” work. Strangely, I started getting bad dreams and visions about “the pastor” and his “church.” In one of my dreams, I sat in a car with him and his assistant.

Instead of moving forward, the car was moving backward at a top speed! I could see and feel the danger while sitting in the car. Then I saw his assistant leave the car! However, I was still in the car, and the vehicle was moving backward!

I had another dream about this same “pastor.” In the dream, I was following him to a deprived area. It looked like we were begging for food in villages while following him. In another dream, I saw him jump from a mountain.

I followed him by jumping from the mountain as soon as he jumped. There was another dream. I saw him on his “church” premises. The place was dark! I felt fear in the room! In the dream, I felt he was about to kill me!

When I woke up from the dream, I became uncomfortable and fearful! I prayed and told one of my dreams to the pastor who ordained me. He said I should disconnect from that “pastor.” Aside from sharing these dreams and visions, I have had several dreams about him.


My disconnection with that pastor

I went to his “church” premise with two ordained ministers of God. Peacefully, I told him I wanted to separate. However, he acted violently. Although I have disconnected from him, I have no issues with him.

When I see him, I greet him. In my heart, I have no issues with him. I learned a lot from this “pastor” and his “ministry.” He used deception, fear, curses, and violence. Christ Jesus delivered me from this “pastor” and his Church! I have met several pastors who have their own churches. Some tell me to help them build their ministry. However, I don’t join them. I must pray before joining any ministry!


Some encounters in the spiritual realm

By God’s grace, I have had encounters in the spiritual realm. Some “ministers of God” force their associates to bow. It’s witchcraft! If you are not Spirit-filled, you will become a slave.

I am not writing theories or stories. These are real-life encounters and visions from the Lord. Don’t be fooled by the smile and generosity of some people. Some are dangerous in the spirit! They will initiate you on their demonic altar if you are not Spirit-filled!

False leaders will force you to bow if you are not strong in the spiritual realm. I remember seeing a famous “minister of God” trying to pluck a sharp knife into my heart! I can interpret the knife as the Word of God because the Word is an offensive and defensive weapon piercing our spirit, soul, and body (see Hebrews 4:12).

However, in the vision, that minister of God acted violently! If that sharp knife touched my heart, I could have died. However, I dodged the knife in the dream! Another minister of God poured dirty water on me in the spiritual realm.

I felt the Holy Spirit telling me that this minister of God humiliated me. Another minister of God in Nigeria used a stick on me. It took the intervention of another gospel minister. If not for the intervention of the minister of God (symbol of God) in Ghana, I would have died!

God will not allow our enemies to destroy us. He will always find ways to rescue us. I remember encountering a famous “minister of God” in Ghana. In the dream, he tried to cage me in a fenced net!

In the dream, he held a strange weapon! He wanted to destroy me with that weapon! However, I saw myself flying into the skies like an eagle! The “minister of God” could not attack me when I flew into the skies!


Deliverance from evil

Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

Psalms 124:6-8 KJV

By God’s grace, I have escaped many attacks in the spiritual realm. Some of the spiritual attacks backfired! Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and angels of God have delivered me several times from wolves in sheep’s clothing and demonic spirits.

It is time to watch and pray. If you don’t watch, pray, and study God’s Word, the wolves in sheep's clothing and demonic spirits will not spare you (see 2 Thessalonians 3:1-3). I will continue in the next article. Kindly share the link to this article so others can receive the wisdom that brings deliverance. You can connect with my teachings for more profound revelations.
