Bible history bears witness to the fact that True Prophets, at the beginning of their ministries attracted much attention. MANY followed them when they FIRST started out with signs and wonders, but when they began to lay in the Word, asking people to line up with the Truth, most of the people followed them no more. Our Lord Jesus had the same experience in the days of His flesh. He was a great Prophet when He just went forth with Signs and wonders, healing the sick and raising the dead, BUT one day He gave them "The WORD TEST" (John 6:53-67). Jesus "tested" their discipleship with "Doctrine" - A strange Doctrine indeed. MANY of His disciples cut Him off right there and then. They went back and walked NO MORE with Him. Every TRUE PROPHET of God experiences the same thing.
In the last day NOT Many will be following the TRUE Prophet but Millions will be following the False prophets. In these last days, so great is the number following the FALSE WAY that Jesus said, "WHEN the Son of Man comes, WILL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?" (Luke 18:8). The vast majority of what is called 'Christian' DOES NOT have the faith which Jesus requires of them in this hour - Belief in the WHOLE BODY of Revealed Truth. WHY is the church in this condition? BECAUSE of the MANY False Prophets, who, from the pulpits are crucifying the True Word and making it of no-effect to the people by calling it error. All they're giving the people is a "traditional Christianity" void of Faith.

I urge you beloveds, get into the Word of God so that you are not easily deceived and follow every whim of doctrine.  Begin to have an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit and ask Him to fill you with His fire, so that when you hear something that is contrary to the Word of God or watered down, you may hear His still small voice warning you not to believe or receive what you are hearing.  There are far too many cookie cutter Christians (Christians by title only) and not hearers and doers of the Word.  Too many have been deceived to follow the ways of the world instead of being different and separate from the world. We are to be GODLY examples in word and deed so that others may know that we are TRUE disciples. Do not allow yourselves to fall into what the world is doing (drinking, smoking, getting tattoos, sexual sins, etc.)  We are to walk in holiness and sin no more!!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, HE is a NEW creature; the OLD things passed away; behold, NEW things have come. Which means, you are no longer to do the same things, talk the way you used to, behave the way you used to but you are to walk in a NEW way, the way of Christ. We are examples to those around us and we are to declare what God has done for us and how He has transformed us and brought us out from sin.  That is our testimony!!!
