What is a sign of a false prophet?

Craftily-appointed permanent positions.
In todays times we are beginning to see things happen in the church that just should not be. I am an advocate of “old-fashioned churches” where the pastor has a little age to him or her and they know the bible and act upon God’s Word and not their own endeavors. We now have pastors who want bigger this and want bigger that, and are barely handling what God has already given them. Materialism runs ramped in God’s house now. They put signs on the outside of the church that practically says, “We want your money!!!” If I am recalling the Word correctly, didn’t Jesus turn the tables in the temple and tell the sellers that they had made the house of prayer a house of thieves? Did I read it right? What part do these new preachers not get?
Drinking beer, liquor, games of chance, porn of any kind whether it’s couples class or not, homosexuality (that’s the Word so don’t flog me for it), child abuse, drugs, or money drives. These things should not be. Jesus never begged anyone for money. Where is the faith today? Where is the faith of the preachers who are supposedly doing God’s Work? Is His provision become so blasé to them and so slow that they have to take it upon themselves to go out and get their own provision? Then we wonder why we are not seeing signs and wonders now a day. If the leaders don’t believe, the followers will have a hard time doing it too. Do I really need a Jag in order to be a Pastor? Jesus rode a donkey! He could have ridden a better breed of animal but He chose a Chevette over a Lincoln.
So what is a sign of a false prophet? It is when you see someone handing out positions like candy canes on Christmas yet the church lacks signs, wonders and miracles. The bible tells us that after Jesus ordained His men/women, signs, wonders and miracles followed. A friend of mine told me that her church has so many leaders in it now that there is hardly anyone in the pews. That’s a shame. Her church is small and it is very noticeable. A false prophet has learned how to make a profit (monetary type,) off of the handing out of positions. He gets those from the church who have good jobs and can tithe and donate to him whenever he needs or wants it. He knows nearly every penny that they make, when they make it
