Is it really that easy to spot a false prophet? 1Jo 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: Then you could simply ask Benny Hinn and all the others this question: Is Christ come in the flesh? And if they answer yes then they are for real if not then they are not. But what is supposed to happen if they are false prophets? Are they supposed to explode or what? Will they start to scream and run against a wall when you ask them this question? What is supposed to happen? I don't get it. Is a false prophet totally unable to answer to such a question? Will he not be able to open his mouth? But if even a false prophet can simply lie and answer yes then what is this whole test good for? This is once again a verse which I don't understand at all.
