The Chirping False Prophet

And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust; and thy voice shall be as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust. Isaiah 29:4 ESV

When a prophet of God speaks, they speak from platforms to be heard of all. They don’t mind their utterance being judged for they know in whom they have heard. But a false prophet whispers or calls for private discussions where you and only a carefully select few can hear what is being said. They move out of the audience of God prophets that their utterance is not judged and they use whispers or lowering tones.

The word for whisper is the word, chirp (Strongs 6850), translated from original Hebrew as the sound of a dove. The prophet Isaiah is saying that this familiar spirit speaking out of the dust sounds like a dove (the Holy Spirit) but is a deception. If you don’t know any better or can’t judge the prophecy by the Word of God, you will accept the whispered word as a valid word of prophecy when it clearly has a demonic origin.

The word chirp also means incessant talking, high pitched sound, nonstop chatting or noise made by birds or insects. It should astound you to know that neither birds or insects carry significant weight as opposed to other animals in the animal kingdom. A chirping prophet makes a lot of sounds or chirping when there is no substance. God prophets are solid and swell with the Word, therefore without having to say a lot on some occasions, their words carry heavy weight in all dimensions. When they release the Word of God Heaven moves. False prophets, on the other hand, are chatty, love attention and audiences and will keep you amused with their incessant ramblings. The remedy for dealing with false prophets and false prophecy is the knowledge of the Word of God. God said His people perish (die, expire, whither away) for the lack of knowledge. It is the five fold ministry’s duty is to equip the believers for such a time as this.
