"3. A true prophet does not give his own private interpretation of prophecy (2 Peter 1:20).

"5. A true prophet is to warn the people of God's coming judgment (Isaiah 24:20-21; Revelation 14:6-7).

"6. A true prophet edifies the church, counsels and advises it in religious matters (1 Corinthians 14:34).
"7. A true prophet's words will be in absolute harmony with the words of the prophets that have preceded him (Isaiah 8:20).
"8. He recognizes the incarnation of Jesus Christ (1 John 4:1-3).
"9. He can be recognized by the results of his work (Matthew 7:16-20).
"10. Finally he must be able to meet the requirements listed in Deuteronomy 18:9-12: A true prophet acts in accordance with the will and approval of God.
