Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 28 - Evening

"If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, 'Let us follow other gods' (gods you have not known) 'and let us worship them,' you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The Lord your God is testing you to
find out whether you love him with all
your heart and with all your soul.

- Deuteronomy 13:1-3

Follow Signs and Wonders? Or, Follow Established Doctrinal Truth?    

This is not a good text verse for claiming that signs and wonders confirm the truth! Often we hear it said that signs are used to confirm the truth. But, according to this verse the only truth that can be confirmed by a sign or wonder is truth that has already been confirmed by previous revelation of the Lord established in Scripture.

The Lord warned the people of Israel that if there is ever a time when someone performs a miraculous sign in order to lead people in a “truth” that is contrary to the truth they already know, then they are to reject that messenger and that message.

Consider Jesus’ own ministry of signs and wonders. Jesus spoke in total agreement with the written revelation of scripture. Jesus fulfilled the prophesies from the Old Testament. What about his signs, miracles and wonders? They were an exclamation point for his ministry that taught and fulfilled scripture. None of Jesus’ miracles confirmed a truth that was not already connected to written scripture. No teaching of Jesus’ was so new and radical that he himself could not quote supporting verses out of the Old Testament.

Where do these false prophets and their signs come from? Moses says,

“God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

God uses false teachers to test people’s motivation for pursuing him. To love God is to love the truth “with all your heart and with all your soul.” But, to be willing to follow new teaching contrary to the Truth means just the opposite. The person who follows false teaching (including signs and wonders) is not pursuing the Lord, but is motivated by some other passion.

  Christian Quote from Church History

We were not given eyes to
lust with, nor the tongue
for speaking evil."
- Tertullian,197

  Coins of Herod Philip II have been found. Herod Philip was Herod the Great's son who ruled territory east and north of the Sea of Galilee including Caesarea Philippi and the area of Iturea, Batanea and Trachontis. Herod Philip II married his niece Salome who was the daughter of Herodias and Herod II (also called Herod Philip I). Eventually, Herodias left Herod II (Philip I) to marry Herod Antipas. This is where Herodias and her daughter, Salome conspire to have John the Baptists head cut off (according to both Matthew 14:1-12 and Josephus). Salome, the daughter who danced for her step father Herod Antipas, later married the Herod Philip II.
