Fake prophets, fake miracle healing

A “healing miracle ” turned out to be fake, as it turns out a woman’s arm has been ‘healed’ by several different prophets at different times. The rise of false prophets faking miracle healing is on the increase particularly in Africa, but in keeping with the myriad of wondrous feats Africa’s self-styled preachers and prophets continue to bring the name of God and indeed the body of Christ into disrepute. Sadly millions are in awe of these “men of God” who purportedly claim have spiritual and godly powers to perform miracles alas they are employing actors in these fake acts.

Videos of a Nigerian woman purportedly being healed of a disabled arm has gone viral. The woman has been to different churches and has had the same arm healed by different prophets.

Alert observers have exposed the hoax, and the false prophets and it has been rightly mocked on social media, with some people sharing the video identifying the woman as the same and shaming the fake prophets who hire this actor.
The rise of false prophets in Africa is not only alarming but now a serious concern that is fast bringing the body of Christ into disrepute and making christians look like idiots.

The church in Africa has largely ignored these false prophets and it has become a circus of sorts, indeed a big joke. Many now regard prophetic church as the biggest fraud to hit Africa and some see these charlatans as entrepreneurs who use the name of God and the bible to dupe their congregates. It has become a money making scheme and it is fast growing with new prophets joining the ranks almost daily.

In the christian religion, a false prophet is one who falsely claims the gift of prophecy or divine inspiration, or to speak for God, or who makes such claims for evil ends. Often, someone who is considered a “true prophet” by some people is simultaneously considered a “false prophet” by others, even within the same religion as the “prophet” in question. In a wider sense, it is anyone who, without having it, claims a special connection to the Deity and sets himself up as a source of spirituality, as an authority, preacher, or teacher.
Matthew 24:24 is indeed a scripture worth focusing on.

For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
