THE MESSAGE OF THE TRUE PROPHET
How To Tell The Real From The False
A Satan worshipper revealed that Satan’s favorite thing to do was to pretend to be a Christian, so the Christians would think he was one of them, and he could deceive them into accepting his plans. Satan appears as “an angel of light”–or else he would fool few. But, there are signs that will expose him.
I am writing this article in January of 2004. (I am revising this article on September 1, 2005). And, as with every New Year on the Roman calendar, I receive e-mail messages from Christian fortune-tellers, who predict what will happen in the coming year. Each year, they tickle the ears of those who eagerly wait for their predictions, as eagerly as the lost pagan world waits for the predictions of the astrologers. People are looking for hope, for someone to tell them that they will get a lot of money, get a good job, go to college, find a handsome husband, or get something they need or want. People are seeking a “word from God”, through some human source, even though this practice is an abomination to the real Elohim of Israel. And so, faithfully the false prophets of Christianity come up with the same old tired predictions in new garments and wording each year, to give hope to those who have no desire to read the Word of Elohim (God) and study it for themselves, or to hear directly from the Author, the Ruach ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit). These people would rather get some “word” over the Internet, read a book, hear their pastor, or talk to a friend, and so end up entangled in a web of deception and false hopes that don’t come true.
Ezekiel 13 and other passages in the Word of the Elohim of Israel, Yahuweh, tell us that these false prophets do not hear from Him, but hear out of their own heads. They always prophesy what people want to hear, to make people comfortable and at ease in their rebellion, their disobedience, their sin, their religious self-righteousness, and their religious traditional beliefs that are contrary to the Word of the One True Elohim. These false prophets of “peace, peace, when there is no peace” are no different than tabloid newspapers, which crank out their hopeful predictions spoken through some psychic mystic. These Christian gurus, these false prophets of false hope, speak messages that are contrary to the Word of Elohim, contrary to His nature, contrary to His will, and contrary to Truth. Yet, good, sincere people, can’t seem to get enough of these false Christian prophet’s words, because they sooth the pain, the heartache, the misery, and poverty, and the empty, lonely, hopelessness of their lives. Like many, who grab the horoscope predictions from the daily newspaper, many gullible Christians grab these prophecies as truth. Yet, as the year progresses, they realize that nothing is happening and they become discouraged, depressed and despairing. But, come the new Roman calendar year, they get new hope, because the same old tired deceptions are there again.
It is a tragedy! People don’t hear from the Ruach ha Kodesh, because they don’t study the Word, with Him as their Teacher, and thus they cannot know His voice from the voice of the liar and deceiver. They are taught a lawless gospel, a cheap grace, and so do not know how to please the Elohim of Israel, their Father. So, they live a life of disobedience, and thus emptiness, always seeking something to soothe their minds.
The false prophet makes a huge profit. They tell people what is soothing, nice, and
encouraging, and never tell the people to repent, to prepare, to get ready, because
judgment is coming. They leave people in their sins, and in expectancy for wealth, when
Ezekiel 7 is about to happen. But, these false ones have big mailing lists, are on the Internet, in big conventions, and in the Christian headlines with their books, tapes and videos/now DVDs. The false prophets talk about looking for signs and wonders, thus preparing people to receive the deceptive signs and wonders of Revelation 13:13-14.
The true Prophet’s life is totally different–as in the days before the first coming of Messiah Yahushua.
The true Prophet cares about the sheep, hears directly from the Father, and warns the people of what is to come, without compromise. Study the Prophets–Isaiah to Malachi, and the Psalms (for many are prophecies). See what the Prophets said, and what their lifestyle was. Also, read II Chronicles 18, for it shows a very clear picture of the true Prophet vs. the false prophet. The genuine Elohim-sent Prophets of the Messianic Scriptures also follow the pattern of their predecessors in the Tenach (misnamed the Old Testament).
There is no such thing as an Old vs. a New Testament–that was man’s attempt to get rid of Yahuweh, by Rome’s Church, about 1700 years ago, to destroy anything Hebrew from off the face of the earth. At His ascension, Yahushua left us a very simple Gospel of the Kingdom of Elohim. Messiah came as the “suffering Servant” of Isaiah 53, to fulfill the ceremonial laws of animal sacrifice, thus opening salvation up to all people. But, He never discarded His Word, for He was/is the living Word. He sent us the Ruach ha Kodesh, so that we could obey His Commandments from the heart. If we don’t know the Word, we can’t know Him! If we don’t know the Word, we will receive deceptions! Thus, the true Prophet of Yahuweh/Yahushua is trained in hearing the voice of Elohim from their youth. I was trained from the age of 4, so that I know His voice. He comes in visions, dreams, prophetic words, words of knowledge and wisdom. He speaks clearly to the true Prophet. The true Prophet is a seer into the future, and thus a watchman who is given the task of sounding a clear warning to His people (Hosea 8:1). Yahuweh places His Word in their mouths. I have had a passion for His Word since I was a child. The true Prophet never speaks anything contradictory to the whole of the written Scriptures.
The man-created religion called “Christianity”, founded at the Council at Nicea in 325CE, has a foundation of murder of His true people, the destruction of His true Word, lies, deception, falsehood, paganism, Gnosticism, Greek philosophy, and mysticism of the modern New Age Movement. This religion, which has joined with the one world government, is getting more and more like the New Age teachings all the time. Its real pagan roots are being exposed.
I know I shouldn’t be, but I am still shocked to read these false prophet’s predictions, for their wording is more and more New Age all the time. It is a subtle sneaking in of mysticism and the occultist pagan philosophies from Greece, Rome, Babylon, Persia, and Egypt all mixed together with very nice “Christianese” language, so that Christians are fooled, duped, deceived, lied to, and sucked into the mystic and mystery thinking of Lucifer’s religion. The great deception that will destroy millions of believers has already
fastened itself around the minds of the lazy, naïve, undisciplined, and comfort-loving Christian.
I actually do not think that most of these false prophets know that they are false prophets. I think they are deceived themselves, and know no better than to pass on their deceptions to those who are ignorant of the true Word. However, these prophets have the Word, and do not compare their prophecies with the Word. I heard one very popular prophet on Christian TV say, “I don’t have to read the Bible every day; the Holy Spirit speaks to me direct; I haven’t read the Bible in a week”. And, he said that very arrogantly, while flipping his long black curls over his shoulder. This same prophet is very sexually oriented, and I’ve seen a disgusting sexually oriented demonstration in the name of “travailing prayer” in his meetings—live on TBN. The arrogance of this man is astounding. And his prophecies are so far from the nature of Yahuweh, and Word of Yahuweh that it is tragic. Yet, he has a following of millions.
In this latest group of prophecies, one said that there was hope for the Body of Christ to
get rich by something coming out of the Middle East. There are predictions of all sorts
of great blessings, but not one mention of Israel, nor of the Elohim of Israel, not one mention of His Land or His people, not one mention of preparing for the judgment at hand, for nuclear holocaust, for World War III, for the destruction of the world to the point of there being “few left in it”. No words about the coming judgment on the nations, and on the whore system of Constantine, Mystery Babylon–the organized Church, which is a pagan counterfeit at the core of it. Remember now, I’m not just spouting off theories or opinions, but hard cold facts, that anyone can read. Yahushua did not start a new religion. These false prophets have a theology that leaves Israel out.
We are in the “days of Noah”. Noah was a true prophet. But, I’m sure that many were going around making fun of him and his shipbuilding. But only Noah heard from Elohim. And Noah, and his reluctant family got into the ark in perfect timing. Noah’s children must have loved their dad very much, and of course Noah’s wife must have loved him very much. The Word doesn’t say that they heard from Elohim, but at least their love for Noah saved their lives.
I plead with those that I love also, to wake up and look at the signs of the times, and get ready to flee from the wrath of Elohim to come on America, on Israel, on the wealth and power of the Babylonian/Roman of politics, economics and religion.
Israel is Elohim’s time clock. Yet, I do not hear anything in these mystic fortune-teller’s predictions about what is happening to Israel. Most of them think that Constantine’s invention replaced Israel—the infamous “Replacement Theology”.
There is no mention of the relationship of what is happening in Israel to what is about to happen in the U.S. But, read Jeremiah 50 and 51, Isaiah 18, Isaiah 47 with Revelation 18, and see that this modern Babel is about to be utterly destroyed, for the time period of these prophecies is AFTER the return of Israel to the Land as a nation.
Please don’t read books, or Internet websites that tout the popular views of Christians or Messianic groups. Man’s Christian theology is not what Yahushua, the Jewish Messiah, left us at His ascension. Man looks at the Prophets of the Word through western (Greco/Roman) eyes and makes up his theories that are totally non-related to the reality of their Hebrew content. These books scare people, delight people, and entertain people,
but they are not telling His whole Truth. Many modern books on the Book of Revelation, as well as movies and TV teachings, and magazine articles, are no more than in the realm of fantasy, designed to entertain people and make money. There is a warning on the Word as a whole, and specifically in Revelation 22, that to add or subtract from the Word of Elohim results in ones name being removed from the Book of Life, yet, these greedy Christians just keep cranking out fantasy, using some information from the Revelation. The subject of “end-time prophecy” has become a billion dollar a year business, and the ones who write and produce the most fantastic books or movies get the richest.
The false prophets abound as in the days of the Bible. In II Chronicles 18, we read about the false prophets who said that Ahab would go to war and win!! One true Prophet said that Ahab would die. What happened? Read the chapter–Ahab died. But, what happened to the true Prophet? He got thrown into prison, where he stayed until he rotted away, because he told the truth.
Please: I want you to look at the words of the false prophets in the Bible, and then look at the powerful words of the true Prophets, and see the pattern. The pattern is here with us today!
There is a group of 3,000+ American prophets that prophesy “peace, peace”, prosperity, wealth, ease, comfort, and “don’t worry about a thing; nothing’s happening to us”. They meet regarding the year’s predictions at the beginning of each year. And, then they put out tapes, Internet reports, and newsletters, all telling about their corporate “hearing” from God regarding all the blessings that He is going to pour out upon this nation in the coming year. Yet, Yahuweh, for at least 15 years has been sending signs of His wrath upon this nation, and warning people of soon destruction. Hurricane Katrina is one of His strongest warnings, because of what our leaders are forcing on His Land and His people in Israel. This nation has set itself up, by sin, and forcing Israel to give away Yahuweh’s land, for the destruction of Jeremiah 50 and 51, and Revelation 18. Israel is the “apple of His eye”.
America has been poking the “apple of His eye”, the center of His eye, for a lot of years, even backing people and helping people that have slaughtered the Jewish people. Fact!
Zechariah 2:7-8: “`Oh Tsiyon (Zion)! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babel’. For thus says Yahuweh of hosts … `he who touches you, touches the apple of My eye’”. (Italics mine)
The spirit and purpose of Babel, which means confusion, Babylon, historically and actually has gone from ancient Nimrod’s Babel (Genesis 10 and 11), to Pergamos, Turkey (called the “seat of Satan” in Revelation 2), to Rome (Rome was called “the second Babylon” by man, including Augustine), and to Western Europe through the Roman Catholic Church, and then into America – now in New York, centered in the U.N. Building. It is the center of Nimrod’s “tower of Babel” at this point.
Don’t run from Truth to hide in false patriotism and false hopes. For those who refuse to look at the truth are already deceived, and when destruction comes, they will be so terrified that they will accept the words of the false deceivers.
The false ones always mix something good with their deceptions, or else most people wouldn’t bite into the “poison apple”. Don’t look to political leaders, please! Look to the Yahuweh and His Word!
According to Amos 6:3-7, these people will be killed first in the judgment of Yahuweh. There is final and powerful judgment coming already in its early stages to America. But, behind this first phase of natural disasters will come the powerful ten-pattern of His judgment, that will totally destroy this nation, that our Father calls Babylon. (Please ask for my article: Yahuweh’s Pattern of Judgment).
Our loving, kind, compassionate, good and righteous heavenly Father has sent many prophets, and given many dreams and visions to seers, and the judgment on America is coming swiftly, and its end is total destruction. America has been the incubator for the vilest of all sins–and spread these sins to the world in exchange for our money. America is political and economic Babylon. Yes! “Thus says Yahuweh!!”
Now that the incubator is no longer needed, and the plans of Lucifer for world domination are about completed, America will be expendable. America is all ready set
up, and has been prepared, to be destroyed from within. Father just has to let it happen His way–for He is in control!!!
The elite rulers of Lucifer’s camp are about to allow its destruction. Its people have been programmed with ease and comfort, and satiated with the “good life”, so that they will just lie down and accept whatever is done in order to maintain their lifestyle and peace. But, it will be over totally. America will be burned with fire, and totally taken over by enemies. The fleeing of Jews and those who love them is close to a reality in this country of America. A remnant is hearing a preparing and Yahuweh is leading them and guiding them, and they will be strong in these days to come. Many will be martyred, and some know they will be martyrs, but many will also be spared, and be alive and remain when Messiah comes.
The true Prophet always prepares people, so that they can escape the destruction-judgment of the Father!! The true prophet cares for the sheep. The true prophet does not tell a sheep in danger of going off a cliff: “don’t worry you’re OK”. The true prophet jerks that sheep up anyway he can, to save its life.
Yahuweh has cried out, for His people to get out of Babel, yet His people continue to wallow in Babel and rebel against the Word of Yahuweh. I come back to America periodically to help those in this burning building to get to safety. Yet, I agree with a real Prophet whose newsletter I read last night. He said, “If you rush into a towering inferno to save those who have been actively building Babylon, you may be giving your life in vain. Fight the good fight, but choose your battles wisely.”
I have questioned my need to return to the U.S. for the purpose of trying to wake people up. This time, this winter of 2003/2004, I am back again for the same purpose. But, I am sadly shocked at the “polarizing” of almost everyone into one of two camps–Lucifer’s (including good Christians who won’t leave their worldly lifestyle, nor their pagan affiliations), and the very tiny remnant of Elohim who are preparing in every way to literally “get out of Babel”.
Jeremiah 50:1-8 and 51:6, 45, Revelation 18:4; Isaiah 48:20 and Zechariah 2:7 cries for His people to get out, yet His people, at least those who claim to be His people, smugly and proudly say “NO”! Babel is a political, economic, religious system—and it is a country—now the U.S.
Yahuweh is faithfully warning His people by all sorts of means. “Come out of her My
people lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues”. “Her” is “Mystery Babylon”–the great whore religious system that came from Babel to Rome to Rome’s empire–and daughters–now the western world, primarily the United States. This is just historical fact. Wake up! Babylon will fall suddenly, quickly and soon!
I urge you to read or re-read the prophecies of Dimitru Duduman, a prophet sent by the Father in the late 80’s and the 90’s from Romania, to warn people that America will burn from nuclear holocaust. The Word talks quite a lot about nuclear holocaust in many places. It talks about plagues that will be released–disease, war, famine, and biological and chemical weapons. Yet, do any of these false prophets talk about this??? NO!!
The network newscasters are predicting such weapons being used by al Qieda, but not the false prophets.
The false prophets boldly say, “Thus says the Lord”, or “Thus says the Holy Spirit”. They have no fear of the One, True Elohim, the Elohim of Israel, who says, “I am Yahuweh, that is My Name, and My glory I will not give to another”! He is a consuming fire, and if is only wisdom to fear Him. Isaiah 8:13: “Yahuweh of hosts, Him you shall set-apart. Let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread”. He won’t allow darkness in His presence—He is all Light. (I John 1:5) We must conform to what He calls right-rulings in His Kingdom. His Kingdom will come to the earth, and He will rule by His Torah (His Instructions and Teachings and right-rulings).
As a true Prophet, called and trained since childhood to hear the voice of Yahuweh’s Spirit, I search the Prophets and study and study and study, and I hear the voice of the Ruach ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit), and I know that the time of His visitation is upon us, to judge all sin, lawlessness, rebellion, and false religion. Yet, I have refrained from saying: “Thus saith Yahuweh”. But, recently Father has spoken to me to lift my voice like a trumpet, and show His people their sin, and He’d back me up!!! I had such a heavy load lifted off me when He said that, that I physically felt the release.
I have a healthy fear of my Daddy’s abilities. It’s a smart thing to fear Father’s abilities!
I know the penalty for being wrong. I am a mouthpiece for Yahuweh, and to speak for Him falsely would result in much judgment coming down on my head.
But, the false prophets say: “we’re in the age of grace; if we make a mistake, Jesus will forgive us”. NO!!! There is no difference in the true calling of one in the Office of the Prophet before Yahushua came and after Yahushua came!!! Also, the years of training are the same. If a prophet does not know His voice, they’d better shut up. The age of grace began in Genesis chapter 3, when Father clothed Adam and Eve with those bloody skins, to save them from the fires of hell. The Christian Church has been fed Greek and Roman teachings of a false grace, that is a license for getting out of anything that the Hebrew’s Elohim would ask them to do. The Christian Church is an invention of the Roman Emperor Constantine, and he made its rules and laws of acceptance into it, at the Council of Nicea. The Roman leaders built on that deception, even adding, substituting and changing wording in the Messianic Scriptures to fit their mockery of the Elohim of Israel. Even the traditional evangelical doctrine of “grace verses law” was a mocking invention of Romans in the Roman Catholic Church, and created to make sure that no one in that system accepted anything Hebrew. Fact!!! Study it for yourself!
The true Prophet does not step outside the confines of the Logos–the written Word of
Elohim–in their declarations of the Rhema (spoken Word of Elohim). So many modern prophets move in mysticism and down right occultism. There is no fear of Yahuweh in the so-called “New Testament Church”. Yahuweh, under the pagan titles of God or Lord, or Jehovah, is relegated to the Jews, and so is obsolete, along with His OOOOOOOLD Testament–that’s Constantine’s Roman Catholic Church teaching.
The true Prophet does not stretch the meaning of a verse to match what they are staying, but their prophecy holds up to the entire Word of Elohim (Genesis to Revelation). The true Prophet is also true to the nature of the Elohim of Israel because the true Prophet knows the Elohim of Israel. Many modern false prophets do not know Him, and so cross his very nature in their prophecies. They put their own words in His mouth—dangerous!
Yahuweh’s nature is not the twisted personality that a counterfeit religion tries to put on
Him, but is a nature that is consistent throughout the whole of Scripture. Greek Gnosticism says that Yahuweh was the bad one in the Garden for withholding “illumination” from Eve, found in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but Lucifer (the Illumined, shining one) was the good god, who illumined Eve and made her a goddess. This Gnosticism is the lie of Lucifer that man can be a god. In the second century A.D., the Greek Christians called themselves Gnostic Christians. But, as early as about 58 A.D., the Greeks, as well as Hellenised Jews, threw Yahuweh and the Torah out of their Messianic belief, choosing to call themselves “Christians”. The ones who followed the teachings of the Apostles were called “followers of the Nazarene” or “followers of the Way”—and they were considered a sect of Judaism, for they studied the Word in the synagogues. Yet, in the second century, Emperor Hadrian said that in Alexandria, Egypt, the worshippers of Serapis the sun god were called “Christians”, and their leaders were called “the Bishops of Christ”. The word “Christ” is the name of a pagan god of Greece. “Messiah” is the English translation of the Hebrew “Machiach”.
Yahushua said, “I and My Father are one”. He only did what He saw His Father doing and said only what His Father was saying. He spent nights in prayer to hear from His Father before He went out and preached. He was totally dependant on the Father. But, these false prophets are hearing from “another spirit”, and it is not Yahuweh’s Ruach. The Ruach is Yahuweh (II Corinthians 3:17). So, the true Ruach ha Kodesh cannot say anything that Yahuweh does not say. The Ruach tells everyone the same thing, all over the world. Yes, you heard me right–these false prophets are not only hearing out of their own heads and from their own deceived hearts, but from the mockery of Rome, and the demonic deceptions of pagan Christianity. They are hearing “another spirit”, that is not from the Elohim of Israel, but from the foundational roots of a counterfeit religion, and an imposter sun god. I am saying this, “Thus says Yahuweh”. Does the Word back that up? Yes!
I read New Age Gnostic, occult, and pagan philosophical wordings in the prophecies of these modern-day “Simon the sorcerers”. They mix the Christian typical language in with the occult language, and so fool millions. Have I read all of them carefully? Do I study the Internet sites of these prophets? Do, I know all of the prophets in the different groups? NO, but I’ve read the words of the leaders for years, and scanned the others, and they are all alike except for some add a little more truth in their context than others do. Some are calling for repentance, and some are even saying that trouble is coming,
but they are mixing these truths with deceptions, to put their audience into either fear, or a soothing sleep.
Did you know that false prophets form a strong clique–they stick together and pat each other on the back? This is traditional with false prophets. I judge NO individual’s heart! I only see the patterns, and warn you about them! Look again at the story in II Chronicles 18. It is very common. You usually don’t have lone-wolf false prophets– unless they’re really off the wall, naked and bearded, and walking around carrying signs that say “The end of the world is coming”. HOWEVER: These may not be false prophets–remember that Isaiah had to walk around naked, and I’m sure they had long beards because Father asked Ezekiel to cut his, and throw part of it to the wind.
The true Prophet is concerned about what Father is saying about His Land and His people, and does not try to prophesy to a nation ease and comfort, when Father has already prophesied judgment. The true Prophet is involved in some intense way with Israel, because Father is.
Yes, because America leads the world in sin, and has worked against Father’s people clear back to the late 1800’s, America will burn with nuclear holocaust. America’s people will be herded into concentration camps, murdered by the millions, used in experiments, sent to mind re-programming centers, or be kept under a martial law that has no mercy. Many true Prophets that have been sent by Father have been shown visions and dreams, and given words of knowledge and wisdom, regarding America’s destruction.
Jeremiah 7:25-26: “From the day your fathers came out of Egypt until this day, I have sent you My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them. But they did not obey Me nor incline their ear, but stiffened their neck”. America has had much, much warning! Yet, her people are more concerned about entertainment, money, and advancing their selfish agendas and ambitions than to listen to Yahuweh, the Creator.
II Timothy 3:1-8 is a perfect picture of our day and time—“perilous times”. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, gangs of looters, murders, rapists, and vicious mindless people are roaming the streets to get what they can see for themselves. This is human nature at its core—vile and akin to Satan.
The true prophet is a servant. He follows the Lamb wherever He goes. He is a “doulos”—(Greek for: bond slave), who lives in his Master’s house. And the true servant tells the truth of his Master to all people to warn them. The true “doulos” has a totally different life- style than anyone else, for he carries the tribes on his heart—the 12 tribes—and the pain and misery of humanity on his heart. He is in tune with the heart of Yahuweh/Yahushua, and is in the “fellowship of His sufferings”. (Philippians 3:10)
I love my country, but I love it enough to open my eyes to what Father shows me, and warn people that our beloved country is about to be destroyed.
Only those who absolutely cooperate with the most wicked world rulers will survive a little longer than others by taking their “mark” of identification–the “mark” of the world system. The system is called the “beast”, because it is a composite of all world systems that conquered other empires, and tried to set up world rule, since the days of Nimrod’s
Tower 5,000 years ago. Each of these heads of the beasts (7 of them), have ruled over Elohim’s people.
It is Lucifer who tells us to go ahead and sin and forget repentance, because our easy-
going Gnostic god will forgive anything, no matter how much sin we do. That’s not grace, that’s license for wickedness. The Elohim of Israel says that if we don’t guard and keep the Torah (Right-rulings, teachings, statutes, ordinances and good laws described basically in the first 5 books of the Scriptures) of His Kingdom, we will die out of His Kingdom. Who is telling The Truth?
“Sin is the transgression of the Torah”. (I John 3:4) The anti-messiah is called “the lawless one”—II Thessalonians 2. In Matthew 7:23, those supposedly good believers are cast out of His Kingdom because of lawlessness. “Depart from Me, you who work lawlessness”. (Lawless is “Torah-lessnes”) You are either law abiding in His Kingdom or lawless! The false prophets along with “the false prophet” of Revelation 13 will end up in the lake of fire.
The Greek/Roman concept of faith for salvation is mental assent, belief with no action. Just receiving information as truth with no corresponding fruit. But the Hebrew concept of faith is that without corresponding actions, and obedience to what is believed, there is no salvation. In other words: “Faith without works is dead”.
The modern lukewarm church says, “We don’t want to hear anything `negative’”. Well, they are going to hear a lot negative when the wrath of Yahuweh destroys it. But, these false prophets are warning no one. In Revelation 17, the one world government will eventually get tired of being told what to do by the one world religion, and they will burn it with fire.
Sin is violating the Torah, Elohim’s rule of His Kingdom of Light. Therefore, the true prophet guards the Torah of Yahuweh. His Kingdom will and rule is our set-apart code of life. It is His will on this earth, as it is in heaven. The King has a Kingdom rule, and if we are in His Kingdom, we’d better submit to the Kingdom rule, or get out.
There are 3 reasons why He judges mankind, mentioned in many passages of Scripture: 1) for breaking the Torah, 2) for rejecting the Torah and thus rejecting Him, and 3) for harming His people and for harming His land of Israel. We can’t hide behind some cheap grace, and break any of the above 3 willfully and expect eternal life in Yahuweh’s Kingdom. And that is again, “Thus says Yahuweh!”
The price to stand for truth is very high!! You must forsake all attachments to every thing and everyone, ambitions and desires, and be dead to yourself, in order to speak for Yahuweh. (Matthew 10:34-39)
Unless all of Scripture lines up to a prophecy as a plumb line of truth, then the prophecy is false. If a Prophet says, “Thus says the Lord” or “thus says the Holy Spirit”. But, if they are wrong, then sure death comes to their spirit, and later to their soul and body. The false prophets will not get by with their deceptions! Judgment is coming on them!
In one of the recent prophecies I got from these false ones, one man said that he got his prophecy as “an illumined cloud came towards him”. That is an indicator that he got his prophecy from “Lucifer”, whose name means Illumined One, Shining One. One lady said that the church was going to “shine”—from Isaiah 60:1. This prophecy by Isaiah is addressed to the nation of Israel in the last days. She talked about the Middle East giving up its wealth for the “body of Christ”. Oh really! This false prophetess is manipulating the Word to back her human reasoning, which is very dangerous.
The Word tells us in Deuteronomy 4:2: “Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it. Guard the words of Yahuweh your Elohim which I am commanding you”. Proverbs 30:5-6: “Every word of Eloth is tried; He is a shield to those taking refuge in Him. Do not add to His Words, lest He reprove you, and you be found a liar”. Also see the warning in Revelation 22:18-19.
The Word mentioned in the “Word” is always the Tenach—for when the Messianic Scriptures were written, they studied the Tenach. So II Peter 1:20 and II Timothy 3:14-17 is talking about Tenach—“Elohim-breathed”, “profitable for teaching”, “able to make one wise unto salvation”! There is no prophecy in the Word of Elohim regarding wealth being poured out upon something called a “body of Christ.”
The Word talks about a great falling away in these days, with very few left that truly worship Elohim. “You will be hated by all men for My Name’s sake”, Yahushua said. What was His Name? It was Yahushau. He came in the Name of His Father, Yahuweh. The same first three Hebrew letters are in both names.
The “J” is only about 480 years old in our English language. Do your own research, and study, and let the Ruach ha Kodesh be your Teacher–not man.
And, “gold dust”, oh yes—“Alchemy”! — a witchcraft manipulation of metals, practiced by the occult ancients—a demonic manifestation. Gold was the symbol of Babylon! Study for yourself! The “gold dust” phenomenon accompanies false prophets.
Revelation 13:13-14, speaking of the false prophet who accompanies the anti-messiah: “And he does great signs and wonders, so that he even makes fire come down from the heavens on the earth before men. And he leads astray those dwelling on the earth because of the signs which he was given to do before the beast…” DO NOT FOLLOW SIGNS FOR YOUR BELIEFS—FOLLOW ONLY THE WHOLE WORD AS TAUGHT BY YAHUWEH’S SPIRIT!
Great revival into the churches is NOT in the Word regarding these last days. In II Thessalonians 2, we are told that there will be a great falling away (apostasy) in these last days. People will flock to a one-world religion, based on Gnosticism, on New Age philosophy. Part of that philosophy is “what’s in it for me?” Self is at the center of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Submission to the King of a Kingdom is at the center of the worship of Yahuweh, Creator of the universe.
Wealth being poured out on His people in these days is NOT in the Word. The destruction of the economic system is in the Word. One of the ways He judges is to collapse the economic system of a sinful people. We must stop looking at ourselves as good. We are not good, as a people and as a nation. America is a great sinful nation, whose sins have mounted up to Yahuweh. Now, America is forcing His people to give up their land to His enemies, and their enemies. Money, power, control and all that comes with it—idolatry–is in the minds of those who are greedy for gain. Their treasure is in this world. People are making America and its leaders gods—there is a curse on those who make man their god. It is idolatry!
The modern American Christian religion is a multi-billion dollar-a-year business. It is part of the Babylonian system. It is a few people getting rich on the fears, laziness and ignorance of the “laity”. False prophets and teachers set themselves up above others as
“superior” beings. To be in their group, you must follow their rules of acceptance. There are 2,000+ Christian denominations—all saying they are right—all based on the thinking of man, mixed with enough truth to deceive people. Yet, they are deceiving the multitudes who do not know the Word nor the Father for themselves.
Read the whole verse–Hosea 4:6! In this culture a Bible can be bought for $1.00 or less. People in the modern church of the West are not perishing for lack of knowledge, but for the other 2 reasons in that verse—for rejecting knowledge. People want information, but most don’t know how to study with the Ruach ha Kodesh, because they live a life of disobedience. He doesn’t talk to those who are willfully “lawless”, except to warn them in His mercy and compassion, not wanting “any to perish, but for all to come to REPENTANCE”! Man’s pride must be humbled.
Ezekiel 7:19; Zechariah 1:18; Revelation 6:15; II Timothy 6:10; Luke 12:15, and many other verses warn us about the destruction of wealth in the last days—warn us not to be covetous. In the last days man will throw his gold and silver to the bats and moles, and die in great fear. That is quite the opposite of the lies that the false prophets are telling people now.
Isaiah 2, 13, 24; Zephaniah 1-2; Zechariah 14:12; II Peter 3; and many, many passages, including Matthew 24:21-22, tell us that no flesh will be saved on this planet in these days, if He does not intervene. The false prophets are not saying that. They are not telling the people to prepare for His judgment of fire.
False prophets are “in” with important people, even Kings and Presidents, and world leaders. They are respected. Messiah said that we should beware when all men speak well of us. He aid that what was acceptable and right in the eyes of men, was an abomination to Him.
These false prophets seek to meet with world leaders, and be popular with the world’s important people. They meet with the Pope, and many have even signed the 1994 Document with the Vatican called “Catholics and Evangelicals Together”, to deny the Protestant Reformation. These false ones do not have the words of the Apostles of Acts 4 and 5, but smooth words to appease the pagans, and get what they want in money, position, television stations, and importance.
II Timothy 4:3-4: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine: but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears, and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned into fables”.
Excerpts from Matthew 7:13-24: “Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide, and the way is broad, that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it. Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed that leads to life, and there are few who find it. But beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are savage wolves. By their fruits you shall know them…Not everyone who says to Me `Master, Master’ shall enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens…”
II Corinthians 11:13-15: “For such are false prophets, deceptive workers, masquerading as messengers of Messiah. And no wonder! For Satan himself masquerades as a messenger of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also
masquerade as servants of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works!”
They say what the people want them to say. They fit in, and don’t rock anyone’s boat. False prophets and teachers are smooth-talkers, and ease talkers, and don’t upset anyone!
False prophets mix their words with good-sounding Christian evangelical doctrine – when they are in the company of good Christian evangelicals. They use words and phrases that are harmonious to Charismatic believers. But, they speak the language of a counterfeit god that is Greek/Roman and Persian. They do not know the One, True, Set-Apart Elohim of Israel, Yahuweh, nor His Son, Yahushua.
I have heard these false ones with their mockery of the Word, and their false teachings about the Elohim of Israel, and His Torah, and His Kingdom, and His judgments.
These false prophets preach an “escapist doctrine”. They are like Peter, in Matthew 16, who said to Yahushua, after He told of going to the stake: “Be kind to Yourself, Master, this shall not happen to you”. Yahushua replied: “Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling-block to Me, for your thoughts are not those of Elohim, but those of men”.
Man wants to escape anything that is harmful to his ease, comfort, and lifestyle. He does not want to think about going through any “tribulation’, troubles, problems or death–horrors! Yet, the Word says: “It is through much tribulation that we must enter the Kingdom of Heaven”. So some slick talker comes along and prophesies that nothing is going to happen because we’re such a good people, and the majority of foolish people lap that up. But, it is pure poison.
He is Light, and in Him is no darkness. His true Prophets speak for Him, and they are under His control and His power. His true Prophets are not proud, and arrogant, and haughty. His true ones do not mock the Torah. His true ones do not seek wealth and fame and glory in this world. His true Prophets are humble, broken, contrite, and totally yielded people who know their Elohim. They have forsaken all to follow Him (Luke 14:33). They have no agenda, no selfish ambition, no big convention halls, no big
audiences, no big supporters, no fame, no fortune, no nothing except the fact that they
know Him, and so their future is to rule and reign with Him in His Kingdom, while the false prophets, the lawless ones, will be cast into the lake of fire.
The false prophets are law-less, or Torah-less, they are outside of His set-apart Covenant with His people, and they encourage others to despise and mock His Covenant–as “Old Testament”–as belonging to the “God of the Jews”.
Matthew 5:18-19: “For truly I say to you, till heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall not pass from the Torah until all be done. Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; and whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens”.
So who will rule and reign with Messiah?–The Torah observant believers in Messiah Yahushua. Unless we uphold His eternal Word, we cannot hope to rule and reign in His Kingdom. “Your Word is forever settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89)
How does a false teacher just dismiss His eternal Word?–by saying that it is obsolete, and has been “replaced”. These false prophets override the Word of Elohim and create their own illusions to give false hope. The Word of Elohim has plenty of real hope and
victory, joy and freedom–plenty of words that are filled with much hope!! But, pitiful, gullible people, reject studying His Word for the real hope–but would rather hear a false teacher with false hope. People go from one convention to another, one seminar to another, from one book to another, one church meeting to another, or one Internet web site to another, trying to get answers for their problems. And, Deuteronomy 28:1 tells us that we can have a victorious life, IF we obey His commandments, which He commanded them “this day”. That means the Torah!!!
Christians are some of the most troubled people on earth–physically, mentally and emotionally, because they are not taught the foundational truths of the Torah! Deuteronomy 32:46-47: “Set your heart on all the words with which I warn you today, so that you command your children to guard to do all the Words of this Torah. For it is not a worthless Word for you, because it is your life, and by this Word you prolong your days…”
These false prophets, these popular teachers of today, these gurus of modern Christianity worldwide, perpetuate the Greek/Roman paganism, and many even totally do not mention His People—Israel, let alone the Torah. They do not use the true Name of the Elohim of Israel, not the true Name of the Savior of the world. They perpetuate false teachings and false names. When truth comes, we must immediately drop the false and embrace the true!
The Word gives us many illustrations so that we can detect the false from the true. But, very few who call themselves Christians read the Word, or study it, with the help of the Ruach Yahuweh who wrote it. False prophets generally listen to false prophets, false teachings from pastors, from books, cassettes, on TV, and get their deceptions from the group that they are in. False prophets often parrot other false prophets.
In comparison, the true Prophets of Yahuweh can appear to be crazy people, unbalanced people–judgmental, critical, deceivers and liars, and at the least “unloving”. Oftentimes the truth can be much harder to believe than a lie or deception!
The false prophets will not say anything to upset you, unless they want to scare you into reading the next book in a series they are writing. They won’t tell you to get out of the bondage to debt–They’ll tell you to put their latest book on your credit card, and send an offering. Some tell you to send them money to get your miracle from God. Tragic!
Many false modern prophets are living in sin, like homosexuality or adultery, yet their audiences laud them as gods.
They won’t tell you that America is being set up for total downfall, and has been since the 1930’s or before. No, of course, not, they’d loose your faithful financial support. But, here is the truth: Ezekiel 7, Isaiah 2, 13, 24, Zephaniah 1 and 2, James 5:1-6.
In II Thessalonians 2, the anti-messiah, the lawless one, who is to come for a short time, will fool the world by his deceptions. This man of lawlessness will deceive all those who do not love the truth. The word “lawless” is “Torah-less”. He hates the Elohim of Israel. He hates the Names of Yahuweh and Yahushua. He mocks Yahuweh.
This is a detailed description of our day–excerpts from II Timothy 3:1-8: “But, know this that in the last days hard times shall come. For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, thankless, wrong-doers, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, haters of good, betrayers,
reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of Elohim, having a form of reverence but denying its power. Turn away from these! — always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth…these also oppose the truth—men of corrupt minds, found worthless concerning the faith.” Also a description of our day: “And right-ruling is driven back, and righteousness stands far off. For truth has fallen in the street, and right is unable to enter”. (Isaiah 59:14) The false prophet mixes a little truth with error, making a mixture—which Yahuweh hates. “Your Word is Truth”, Yahushua says in John 17:17. Mixing His pure Word with the false prophets words creates a mixture that Yahuweh will judge. The false prophet manipulates His Word to fit their “vision”.
People in the West have been mind-programmed to tolerate and defend the wrong. Christians defend wrong constantly. Christians will watch movies, for example, that blaspheme the Torah of Yahuweh, teaching adultery, fornication, homosexuality, violence, lying and deception, filthy speech, mocking of parents and authority, and glorifying divorce, theft and murder, and then say: “It was a good movie”. Do these Christians have the nature of Light of the King of Light? NO! What happened to the new nature? Read very carefully I John chapter 3, and Romans chapter 6. “Fools make a mock at sin”, Proverbs says, and so do foolish Christians.
They do not know the Torah of Yahuweh, so call “good evil, and evil good”, as Isaiah warns us about (Isaiah 5:20-21). These people are “wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight”.
Let’s go to verse 24: “Therefore as a tongue of fire devours the stubble, and the
flame consumes the chaff, their root is as rottenness, and their blossom goes up like the dust–because they have rejected the Torah of Yahuweh of hosts, and despised the Word of the Set-apart One of Israel”. Did the coming of Yahushua nullify this Word? NO! He spoke it through the Prophet Isaiah–it is His Word!!!
Yahushua said that the false prophet is like a thief and cares nothing for the sheep, except to exploit them for their own gain. The false prophet “tickles the ear”. The false prophet appeals to ease and comfort, therefore Ezekiel 13 talks about the women sewing pillows into the sleeves of the listeners, so that they can relax when they hear the false prophets.
What is the job of the true prophet? Ezekiel 13:17: “And you, son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people, who are prophesying out of their own heart, and prophesy against them”. To these false ones, Yahuweh says: “You have strengthened the hands of the wrong, so that he does not turn from his evil way, to keep him alive”.
False prophets do not address wickedness, nor are they strong of speech against sin. They put their hearers into a slumber. They do not prepare people for Yahuweh’s judgment, because they do not know Yahuweh. Yahuweh calls such people “rebellious”, “stubborn’, “hard-hearted”, and “lawless”. He says that they have a “whore’s forehead”.
For these things, Yahuweh’s Ruach departed from among His people. He left them to continue in their man-made religion. (Ezekiel 8-11) Because no judgment came, they thought He was in there with them–but He had departed. Study the true Prophets of the Word, and you won’t be fooled by the false ones!
A certain man went to work for the United States Treasury Department. He was assigned to the counterfeit bill investigation department. He had to go to a special school to learn
about counterfeit bills. After 2 weeks, a friend said to him: “I bet you have seen a lot of
counterfeit bills in your studies.”. The man said, “No, I have not seen one counterfeit
bill, because I have spent the last week studying the real ones, so that if I ever see a
counterfeit bill, I will recognize it immediately.”
If you spend your time studying the Word, with the Teacher who wrote it, then you will read the words of these false prophets and laugh, saying: “that is ridiculous!” Their false words will be disgusting to you.
The true Prophet, in comparison, sees a child on a train track, playing with her dolls and tea set. A train is coming, and she does not take notice, because she’s singing to her doll.
What is he to do? Is he to go up to her and say: “honey, a train is coming, please get off the tracks”? Is he to sooth and comfort the child, commenting on her pretty doll and telling her that for her birthday she will get another pretty doll? Does he give her some candy, hoping to persuade her to get off the tracks?
If the child puts up some resistance, does the true Prophet shrug his shoulders and say: “oh well….”, as he watches the train smash into her little body, ripping her into a bloody pulp? The false prophets don’t really care how much bloody pulp is thrown to the dogs–all they want is for their selfish ambition to be fulfilled. I’ve seen ministries with literally thousands of letters all piled into the middle of a TV set. These are passionate pleas for help from God. Yet, all of these letters, are unopened, and piled in the middle of the TC screen, as the minister prays a 2-minute prayer over them for all of them to be answered.
False prophets give many personal prophecies that are not true—thus meddling with people’s lives and often destroying their lives. Many false prophecies have sent people off into different countries to minister, which has ended in disaster. Many false prophecies have told people they were going to get rich—and they adjusted their lives so as to look for money. The false prophet cares little for the sheep. They are the thieves and strangers—false shepherds—of John 10. The true prophet is like Messiah, who shepherds His flock with great care.
Does the false prophet or selfish minister really care about the people who give to their ministries? If they did, why don’t they open the envelopes, and call these people and pray for them one by one? Why do those who send money, and ask for prayer and counsel end up with a form letter in response?
Notice, that Yahushua never prayed a prayer for the masses, only for individuals? It is a matter of a good Shepherd vs. a fake one (a “hireling”). The hireling works for money; the true Shepherd works for eternal reward, and right standing with the coming King.
Once, I wrote a TV ministry asking what I thought was a very important question. I got back an envelope, and a letter asking for money–a printed copy of a letter sent out to thousands. But, several years ago, I wrote a letter asking a personal question to Voice of the Martyrs, a powerful voice for the millions of martyrs around the globe, who are dying for their faith in Jesus, whose founder was a Christian Jew who had suffered in prison for his faith, and I got a personal full-sized letter back from one of their Directors.
What’s the difference? The ones who work for Voice of the Martyrs understand full well what being a martyr is–a living martyr or a dead one. When people are trained by
persecution, they never forget their training. They have a different mind-set, and it is the mind-set of our heavenly Father. Each individual is important!
The false prophet does not care to warn anyone on a train track, because they themselves are playing games on the tracks. They don’t see the train coming. They say: “No train is coming, so have a great time at play”. We should also warn the false prophets!!
The true Prophet is a “seer”, a watchman. He sees the train coming, and sees the child on the tracks. His heart is moved with compassion, and understanding. With one eye on the
child, and the other eye on the train, he runs with intensity, swiftness, and sternness, screaming and yelling loudly to the child: “Get off the tracks NOOOOOOOW”!!! He grabs the child, if she’s stunned, and runs away with her, to save her life. The true Prophets always sound the alarm to warn the people!!! (Hosea 8:1: “Put the shofar to your mouth”.)
The child may scream and scream, because their doll is left on the tracks, but the true Prophet does not soft-peddle his message. The doll can be smashed to smithereens, but
the child will be saved. “REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE”, Yahushua warned us. She would not listen, and even fought off the angel’s pleadings to try to get her to come with Lot.
The adult child, holding on to their idolatry, may curse and abuse the true Prophet. But, the fact is, that if a child, or a childish adult, is on the tracks and the train destroys them, the bloody mess is still the same. The true Prophet cannot make a person do something against his own will, no matter if it will save his life or not. Father respects our free will, whether we use it to save ourselves, or to let ourselves be destroyed.
The true Prophet doesn’t care how much the child, or the childish adult screams, rants or raves, but he is determined to try, at least, to save them, even to his own harm.
I grieve day after day, as I see the sheep joyfully dancing their way to the slaughter.
I cry out, but few listen. To my own harm, physically, spiritually and mentally and emotionally, financially and socially, I come to try to help, but like stubborn children, people are content to stay on the tracks, and no amount of warning will get them off. They are polarizing because they’d rather believe deceptions. I ask you: Who really loves Elohim–who really loves people–the true Prophet, or the false one?
With this revision, the year 2005 is entering its last phase, and 2006 looms big. The train is coming swiftly. I am putting the shofar to my mouth, and finally He has released me to say, “Thus says Yahuweh”.
Isaiah 58:1: “Cry aloud and spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet and show My people their transgressions, and the house of Jacob their sins”.
His real people, His set-apart ones, are all in the House of Jacob, because there is no salvation outside of the Elohim of Israel! “I, I am Yahuweh, and besides Me, there is no savior”. That word “savior” in Hebrew is: “yeshua”. (Isaiah 43:11; 45:21-22).
The late Lester Summerall was given a prophecy regarding the years prior to 2006 specifically. But, after describing what would happen in the first few years of the 21st century, when he got to 2006, all he could say was, “Oh God no, Oh God no!”
The world’s leaders and news media, as well as the Word of Elohim, are telling us about the years 2005-2007. Yet, the false prophets are busy telling us that we’re going to get rich. However: Isn’t it interesting that the most solid spreading of the Gospel, which
includes repentance and forsaking all to follow Him, is done by those who live mostly on rice and live in mud huts, or shacks?
Read Isaiah 62:1, 6-7: The true watchman, seer, Prophet, watches day and night without ceasing for Jerusalem. What are we to pray for–Psalm 122:6? Read Isaiah 21:6 and 8; Jeremiah 4:1-21, Ezekiel 3 and 33 and Esther 4. These are the true Prophets.
The true Prophet cannot live a lifestyle like the world lives. The true Prophet has no heart for the world system. They are not comfortable in the world system. At age 4, Father, by His Ruach, gave me a vision, and a “word” from Him and separated me from the world system. It was an experience that is very clear in my mind today. In my life, I have never been interested in what most people are interested in, and not interested in the
things that other people call “popular”. The world system has had no interest to me. So, when Babel falls, and Heaven rejoices, I will also honestly rejoice. (Revelation 18)
I pray that you will wake up, IF you’re still asleep. Because these false prophets are abounding in the secular world also, and will end up telling people to take the “mark of the beast” because it is good for them, and if they don’t it will go bad for them. I actually heard on NBC news that because of a recent kidnapping/death in Florida, now parents are putting chips on their children as signaling devices.
What is really bad – Death, concentration camps, torture, prison, losing everything and everyone in your life, or eternal death in the lake of fire? Is it coming to that? Oh yes!
Don’t waste your time on the Christian prophets that prophesy out of their own heads and do not know the Elohim of Israel. Do not even listen to Messianic prophets unless the whole Word backs up their prophecies. It seems that almost every Messianic group has its own code of belief, depending on the leader. In the early assemblies, they were in unity.
I have talked about the Office of Prophet. But, most false prophets think that there is no difference between the office and any believer who can prophesy. The “gift” of prophecy is for any Ruach-filled believer (I Corinthians 14). There are rules and guidelines for those who prophesy in the assembly. In fact, regarding the “gift of prophecy”, I Corinthians 14:1, 3, and 29 says: “Pursue love, and earnestly seek the spiritual gifts, but rather that you may prophesy…He who is prophesying speaks edification and
encouragement and comfort to men…and let two or three prophets speak, and let the others discern”. This is a gift to the assembly to build them up, exhort them and comfort
them. It is not a gift to warn of judgment, or call for repentance. It carries the authority of Yahuweh only if the prophecy fits His Word. But, it does not carry the authority that the prophet in the Office of the Prophet carries. The authority of the prophet in the Office of the Prophet carries the authority and responsibility of speaking as the mouthpiece of Elohim Himself. The true prophet in the Office of Prophet speaks for Elohim, thus if he speaks wrongly, judgment ensues. The false prophets have the idea that they can speak error and it is covered by grace. I’ve been in meetings where these false prophets told the congregation to “sign up” for a prophecy. This is fortune telling, as we discussed before.
The Prophet in the Office of the Prophet carries authority and great power as the ambassador of Yahuweh. He has an intimate relationship with Yahuweh. Thus when He speaks for Yahuweh, El of Israel, the power that he carries is Yahuweh’s power and
authority. The true prophet fears offending Yahuweh in any way! The false prophet takes “God” for granted, and assumes He will always “understand” if they “mess up”.
But, the Office of the Prophet (Ephesians 4:11) is quite different. The true prophet in the Office of the Prophet is like the Prophets of the Tenach—raised up to give warnings of judgment. The message of the true prophet is always, REPENT, TURN TO YAHUWEH, AND PRODUCE FRUIT THAT CORRESONDS TO THE REPENTANCE.
John the baptiser, the Levite, was a true prophet of Yahuweh. He was a forerunner of the Messiah. His message was one of repentance and preparation for the coming of Messiah. The true prophet now has the same message. “Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is near”. Matthew 3:1-2: “In those days came John the baptiser, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying `Repent for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand’”.
He said to those who were coming with hidden motives: “Brood of adders! Who has warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Bear, therefore, fruit worthy of repentance…And the ax is already laid to the root of the trees. Every tree, then, which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire”. Matthew 3:7-10
Repentance and turning to Yahuwah was His message to His people, who had rejected His Torah, thus rejecting Him. In Ezekiel 18:10-32 and 33:1-20, He pleads: “Repent and turn back from all your transgressions…cast away from you all transgressions…and make for yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies’, declares the Master Yahuweh, `So turn back and live!’”.
In I Corinthians 12, we find 9 gifts or manifestations of the Ruach Yahuweh. The true prophet in the Office of the Prophet has other gifts also besides prophecy. He is also equipped with supernatural hearing ability, to receive words and wisdom from the Father. He moves in dreams and visions and hears from the Father in many ways. He has discernment of “spirits”—to distinguish man’s spirit from demonic spirits, and also to discern Yahuweh’s Spirit clearly. He has also at times, the gifts of healing and miracles, and special faith, which is necessary for the miraculous. Some of the prophets healed, some raised the dead, one saw into the bedroom of the King of Syria and heard every plot he made against Israel.
Supernatural gifts are common equipment to the real prophet. The false prophets often have counterfeit gifts, which look real but are deceptive.
But, please do not throw out the real, just because someone is operating in a counterfeit gift. Remember that the first few plagues wrought by Moses in Egypt, were copied by the magicians of Egypt. But, that did not stop Moses from executing the other plagues. There are a lot of counterfeit $20.00 bills in circulation, but that doesn’t stop you from spending $20.00 bills. The Devil is a counterfeiter. He copies, but He cannot originate anything. If there is a demonic copy, then there must be a real.
The true prophet experiences loneliness, but also experiences the supernatural intervention of Yahuweh and Yahushua as a normal part of his life.
The life of the true prophet is a hard walk. He is rejected, despised, and his message hated. But, the true prophet is an insider with Yahuweh. Amos 3:7: “For the Master Yahuweh does no matter unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets”.
The true prophet knows what is really going on, whereas the false one has no clue. Jeremiah said that the Babylonians would take them away for 70 years. The false prophet of his day said that they’d only be two years in Babylon, and they’d win over the Babylonians. Jeremiah’s message of submission to the Babylonians went totally against the grain of the false prophets, but Jeremiah was right.
Yahuweh asks some strange things of the true prophets. But, when the true one obeys, then the people are warned. That is why the true prophet cannot have any pride or even
defense mechanisms to defend himself against abuse. He is responsible to Yahuweh alone. The true prophet is not responsible to coddle anyone. Matthew 10:13-14: “And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whoever does not receive you nor hears your word, when you leave that house or city, shake the dust from off your feet”.
Ezekiel 33:30-33 lets us know that few, if any, will listen to the true prophet’s message. But, when the message comes to pass, “they shall know that a prophet has been in their midst”. The true prophet is not accepted very well by his own family, relatives, or by most “old friends”. “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and in his own house”. (Matthew 13:57) Don’t expect your family, relatives or those who have known you since childhood to accept you as a prophet of Elohim. They will look upon your sins, failures, mistakes, and personality flaws and take little stock in your message.
Those who prophesy according to the gift of prophesy for edification, exhortation and comfort, must also realize that they can’t speak falsely in the names of Yahuweh/Yahushua. They cannot speak for Yahuweh and misrepresent Him, or death comes. Prophets within the assembly of believers who have the “gift” of prophecy must be subject to two or three other prophets.
Neither can there be choosing of verses here and there to fit the prophecies, but the whole weight of the Scriptures must be behind the prophetic word. “In the mouth of two or three witnesses, let every word be established” is the rule. (Deuteronomy 19:15; Matthew 18:16; II Corinthians 13:1)
The judging prophets must know the Word well, and be able to distinguish by the Ruach the true from the false. The whole Word must judge the prophecy, not just a verse here and there. But, the Prophet in the Office of the Prophet, trained by Elohim, is responsible to submit to judgment by Yahuweh alone. Man must not judge the true Prophet in the Office of Prophet, only his accuracy in speaking for Yahuweh can judge. If he is inaccurate, Yahuweh will remove him, just as He did the false prophets in the Tenach.
The true prophet has an “either/or” message. He looks at everything in black and white—no gray areas. He sees everything by the literal Word. He is jealous for Yahuweh. Elijah on Sinai says: “I have been very jealous for Yahuweh, Elohim of hosts,
for the children of Israel have forsaken Your Covenant. They have thrown down Your altars, and they have slain Your prophets with the sword…”
Elijah was a powerful prophet. Moses was a powerful prophet. Matthew 17:3: “Behold! Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him”. How did they get such a privilege? The two witnesses are His witnesses. They are powerful prophets. The
prophets are His voice in the earth, and He pays particular attention to them. If someone harms them, He takes it personally!
The true prophet has special protection from Yahuweh, for the true prophet lives in the “secret place of the Most High”. His protection lasts until “his course is finished”.
The true prophet has a very special eternal reward for faithfulness. His intimacy with
Yahuweh and Yahushua will continue through eternity.
I would encourage the true prophet to not be “weird”. Don’t draw attention to yourself as someone flaky and “strange”. Be someone that others can look to for strength and truth. Do not compromise, of course, but be someone that encourages others to go forward in their lives—forward to Yahuweh. Dress with respect to the Office. Conduct your life with integrity in all ways, especially in the areas of money and relationships, and with respect for yourself and for others. Don’t misrepresent Yahuweh! This brings great judgment. The true prophet walks in the love of the Father. The mark of the true prophet carry the characteristics of our Elohim: love, peace, joy, faithfulness, gentleness, kindness, compassion, faith, long suffering, endurance, self-control, a giving lifestyle, one who is non-judgmental, non-critical, not hateful, without nasty disposition and strangeness. True prophets do not draw attention to themselves—but to the Word. True prophets are always being judged as “judgmental, critical and unloving”, but don’t let it be true. Be humble, not lifting yourself up above others. Submit to Yahuweh with a contrite and broken, submissive, yielded spirit. He will honor you as He sees fit. Self-righteousness and religious pride, jealousy and envy, are NOT marks of the true prophet. The true prophet helps others achieve their calling, and does not get jealous if another is exalted above him. The true prophet is dead to self!
The true prophet must maintain at least a simple normalcy in life—be balanced. Prophets can get terribly oppressed and depressed. They can get rejection complexes and self-pity problems easily. Because of the intensity of that Office, it takes its toll on the human side of man. There is much to overcome in the life of the prophet. How to balance out being a husband or wife, father or brother, mother or sister, youth or adult with responsibility, and still be totally in line at all times with the Father. Not easy!
The true prophet must simplify his life so that he can put his calling always first. That causes problems in itself. But, in the end times, the true prophet will be more and more on his own, for his message will increase.
Admonition to believers in the last days from James 5:10: “My brothers, as an example of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the Name of Yahuweh.”
Do I personally know any “false prophets”? Yes, I have known quite a few of them in my 40+ years in the ministry. Do I know some true ones—Oh yes!
And, believe me, there is a pattern to both. Their fruit is as different as night and day. Most false ones appear to be very nice people, unless you cross them, and then they turn ugly. The nature of a false prophet is self-centered and selfish. There is self-righteousness and pride, arrogance, haughtiness, and greed, and a desire to control and be
on top, no matter how they get there. They have a “Jezebel” spirit of control, and love power, and love the praises of man. If a man loves the praises and adulations of others, beware!!! If they get upset at you for saying something they don’t like, beware! . If you
cross them, depending on the depth of their pride, they even can use witchcraft prayers, anger, hostility, slander, verbal abuse, and under-handed means of getting rid of you.
I hope this study will help you begin to recognize what is deceitful and lies, and what is
true. The false prophets now, like Rick Warren, are turning many to unrighteousness–to New Age philosophy, for they are tied into the circles of those who want world domination. The false prophets are preparing people to receive the anti-messiah—the lawless one. If you follow leaders who are not true to Yahuweh, then when the anti-messiah comes, you will also follow these leaders into the pit. Beware! Please pray over Jeremiah 17:5-10! There is a curse that comes with trusting man and leaning on man for your stability and security.
The one world religion is upon us, and growing. It is under the umbrella of the Vatican. Soon, everyone who says that “Jesus”, “Yeshua”, or “Yahushua” is the only way to eternal life will find themselves being at odds with the world government. The true prophets, if not marked by Yahuweh for preservation will be martyred. In fact, He is marking His true prophets now for preservation, because they are needed in the dark days ahead as lights to His people. False prophets of all types are abounding. There are false messiahs popping up everywhere in all religions and cults. These false ones all have one thing in common—they hate the El of Israel and His Torah. The false ones are always turning man inward to look to what pleases him. The true ones sound harsh, because they stand for “righteousness”. In our world of tolerance of evil, relative thinking, and global unity, the true prophet is a very dissonant chord. The true prophet is a thorn in the flesh
of the plans of the one world government and its elite Luciferic leaders. The line is being drawn in the sand—get on one side or the other.
THOSE WHO LOVE TRUTH AND ARE OBEDIENT TO HIS TRUTH WILL BE SHOWN FURTHER TRUTH!
