Insight on False prophet
Who is a false prophet?
A false prophet is any one who distort and perverts the word of God to achieve a preconceived end. They substitute or used an alternative way to worship or obey God, instead of preaching about God the way he revealed himself in his word(bible). A false prophets is a great tool in the hands of Satan. Satan uses them so as to achieve his aim of forming a NEW WORLD ORDER.
Bear in mind that, when we talk about prophets it includes pastors, evangelist, bishops and teachers of the gospel. Also bear in mind that there are genuine prophets( pastors, evangelist, bishops and teachers of the word) who stands for the kingdom of God. While the false prophets stand/represent the kingdom of Satan (whether they are aware or not) most prophets are not aware that they serve the cause of the devil because they were themselves deceived to deceive. Both genuine and the false prophets represent two different kingdom,
The Two Kingdoms against each other
These two kingdoms are in opposition to one another, contending for the souls of people and preparing to reveal themselves on earth. The kingdom of Satan will send the Antichrist to physically rule the world, while the kingdom of God will send the true Christ to destroy the earthly kingdom of Satan and set up His millennial kingdom.
Paul in his farewell speech to the elders of the church in Ephesus said that “I know that after I leave, fierce wolves will come among you, and they will not spare the flock. The time will come when some men from your own group will tell lies to lead the believers away after them. Watch, then, and remember that with many tears, day and night, I taught every one of you for three years”. Acts 20:29-31
Paul, by the inspiration of the holy spirit revealed that fierce wolf will come among you(church). The most interesting thing about Paul’s statement here is that the fierce wolf are not coming from outside the church but from within the church. For he said “time will come when some men from your own group will tell lies to lead the believers away after them”.
Satan in his craftiness decided to use familiar faces and personalities from within the church( people you know) so that they can easily be accepted and trusted. These false teachers try as much as possible to identify themselves with different popular denomination so that they can get wider acceptance. IN his most disguised form, Satan attack the church of Christ by infiltrating it with false prophets who pretend to be apostles of Christ 1John 4vs1 says that many false prophets have gone out into the world.
The bible also revealed In 2 Corinthians 11 vs14-15 that Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers be transformed as the ministers of righteousness. They utterly distort the word of God and also falsify it by way of of new translation that deviates from the original text.
From my personal studies of the bible and observations, most of the false prophets think they are doing right thing. And some are merely imitating the false prophets teachings and lifestyles that was handed down to them, thus becoming a false prophets. I classified them into three major groups. 2 Peter 2vs 1-3 said “False prophets appeared in the past among the people, and in the same way false teachers will appear among you. They will bring in destructive, untrue doctrines, and will deny the Master who redeemed them, and so they will bring upon themselves sudden destruction. Even so, many will follow their immoral ways; and because of what they do, others will speak evil of the Way of truth. In their greed these false teachers will make a profit out of telling you made-up stories. For a long time now their Judge has been ready, and their Destroyer has been wide awake!”
From what Peter said, False prophets will appear, these are the first group. These are directly inspired by a wrong spirit who appears as the angel of light. The church of Christ is studied and imitated to enable false prophets easily infiltrate and deceive the it. The demons that are assigned to this duty select the best possible human collaborators to do their evil work. These are then equipped and converted spiritually into false prophets who are wolves in sheepskin. And Then, Peter continued by saying:
“Even so, many will follow their immoral ways” This are the second group of prophets who are merely imitators of the false teachers. They were deceived themselves into believing and teaching those false doctrines. Unknown to them that they serve the cause of the devil.
The last group of prophets are those who actually know that they are serving Satan. These are spiritually degenerated set of people who go into depth of Satan kingdom to seek dark powers with which they could use in deceiving humankind. during the past two decades their numbers have vastly increased in the world.
How to not be deceived

It is vividly clear from the explanation that Muhammad is nothing but a fake prophet. Muhammad exhibits all the character of a fake prophet!
