A Word to False Prophets

The serpent speaks with split tongue
Tells just enough truth to sell the lie
False prophets follow suit
Inspired by demons
Their appearances deceive
Outwardly they play the part
Spiritual leaders on display
Inwardly they wreak of death
By their fruit we know them

God's people do not masquerade
They speak the truth in love
With ears attentive to the Father's voice
They strive for purity of heart
Humility marks this army
Unlike the others puffed up and proud
Like a hot air balloon inflated with an icy blast

People of God are bound to the Bible
Doers of the word
Willing to die for their faith if needed
Though not perfect
They choose to follow Christ

You who masquerade
As champions of the faith
Forsake your wickedness
And turn to Jesus
The Way, the Truth, and the Life
