False prophets abound, telling us what shall come to pass in our generation, especially the return of Jesus Christ, and every single time they have failed. How then can you know when a prophet speaks the truth?

“Nevertheless hear now this word that I speak in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people: The prophets who have been before me and before you of old prophesied against many countries and great kingdoms—of war and disaster and pestilence. As for the prophet who prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet comes to pass, the prophet will be known as one whom the LORD has truly sent” (Jeremiah 28.7–9). 

Yet, in spite of that easy-to-understand test, the followers of false prophets still follow them.
