"The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished" 2 Peter 2:9.
Nevertheless, many will follow their evil teaching, all the same the Lord will rescue you and me from the temptations that surround us, because you are holding onto sound doctrine, yet you ask what temptations? Of following these teachers in their greed; do you not know how they teach people anything to get hold of their money? These are ungodly people, condemned already unto destruction, and God will not spare those who follow them either.
How do you know who or what a false prophet is?
"But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities" 2 Peter 2:10. These do what even angels could not do?
They receive the wages of unrighteousness... carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness..." 2 Peter 2:13-15.
False teachers or false prophets bring in damnable heresies, luring back into sin those who have just escaped from such wicked living. When a person has escaped from the wicked ways of the world by learning about our Lord Jesus Christ, these then, get him turn to sin again and become its slave again.
The Lord said, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves" Matthew 7:15.
Beware of evil workers!
