New Defender's Study Bible Notes
6:14 prophetess Noadiah. God’s enemies may even hire—or Satan himself may raise up—false prophets to try to convince Christians that they are not in God’s will in what they are doing for God. The answer is for them to verify all such prophets and their supposed prophecies by God’s Word (Isaiah 8:20). Sadly, there always seem to be compromisers—or even traitors—among those who profess to be God’s people (see Nehemiah 6:17-19). These people will (whether intentionally or in ignorance) seek to get Christian witnesses, especially key leaders, off the track of true fidelity to Scripture.
