What Does the Bible Say About False Prophets?

Among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: the committing of adultery and walking in falsehood; and they strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one has turned back from his wickedness. …They keep saying to those who despise me, “The LORD has said, “You will have peace”; and as for everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart, they say, “Calamity will not come upon you.”…But if they had stood in My council, then they would have announced My words to My people, and would have turned them back from their evil way and from the evil of their deeds. (Jeremiah 23:14,17,22).

Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.  You will know them by their fruits. (Matthew 7:15-16).

Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.  It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. (2 Corinthians 11:14-15, NIV).

Speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error, promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption. (2 Peter 2:18-19).
