Be a Fruit Inspector

Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Jesus speaking here about false prophets.  They outwardly, look like godly folks.  Outwardly, they appear right on.  But where it counts, their true makeup, they are wild murderous wolves!  How then can we spot these guys?  I dont want to wrongly accuse anyone of this.
Jesus simply says, look at the fruit from their lives.  You cant hide fruit.  You might be deceived thinking your one thing but what your mouth speaks is coming from your heart.  These prosperity preachers are false prophets & teachers, with no question in my mind.  They appear so godly but listen to their lack of faith they accuse you of having.  A Jesus loving, Spirit filled christian produces fruit of righteousness guaranteed.  A false christian will also produce fruit, bad fruit, from their master, the devil.  I cant eat bad rotten fruit.  Jesus said they will be known by their fruit.  I think Jesus knows best.
