(Formerly in Israel, if a man went to inquire of God, he would say, “Come, let us go to the Seer,” because the prophet of today used to be called a Seer. I Samuel 9: 9)
“How can we tell a false prophet?” I asked the Seer. We were all sitting around the wood stove, enjoying a cup of hot tea.
He opened the door to the cast iron box heater and threw in another log. “This I can tell you; the Master said that they will end up like this log, ‘hewn down and cast into the fire.’ This is how you can tell them from the true man of God: Christ said, You shall know them by their fruits. A false prophet or a false teacher will not bear good fruit; they will bring forth evil fruit. A good tree will bring forth good fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit (1).
