THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST 101: How to tell the risen Jesus Christ from false prophets

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

Inspecting a man's hands and his sides can help to differentiate the truly resurrected Jesus Christ from the fakes, phonies and totally false prophets that He warned His believers about:

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there, believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Matthew 24:23-24 King James Version).

If you see the unmistakable cross of crucifixion, nail-driven healed wounds in a man's palms, side and-or feet, then you will know that you have Jesus Christ standing in front of you.

Verifying the nail wounds is one of the Holy Bible-verified methods of separating the real Jesus from the many false Christs that He predicted would come. Fulfilling His prophesy, many frauds have existed in the world since the ministry of Jesus Christ.

The word "Christ" means "the anointed one" or "chosen one." Some religious leaders maneuver in front of being labeled as a false prophet by deploying semantics, whereby they might say, "I never claimed to be God, only anointed by God to be His messenger prophet, His chosen one." But using the title "Christ" when referring to yourself or to others should be avoided altogether because we will not be seeing you like Jesus as the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory (Matthew 24:29-31 KJV).

When Jesus returns, his wounds will be seen not by a select few but by everyone - especially those who pierced him (John 19:34 KJV).:

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen (Revelation 1:7 KJV).

The Gospels of Mark and Luke tell the story of how Jesus appeared to His disciples in different forms after He was resurrected, causing some of them to doubt or not to recognize Him at first.

Thomas who was called Didymus, one of the twelve disciples, was not with the others when Jesus first came to them after the resurrection.

The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God (John 20:24-28-KJV).

The Lord gave the ability to appear in different forms to at least some of His angels (Genesis 19; Hebrews 13:2). So the devil, who is a rebellious and fallen angel, transforms into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV). But, Satan is not omnipresent like God and does not have the healed wounds from the Crucifixion that Jesus has. The devil is not omnipotent like God and not even remotely close to being the Almighty's rival.

So like Jesus told Thomas, look for the resurrected Lord Jesus's healed, nail-pierced wounds to avoid being misled by false Christs.
