How to identify false prophets and teachings example astrology, divination and omensThis is the second part of our study on how to identify a false prophet. We have determined before that it is our responsibility to ensure that we are not deceived. YHVH teaches us through His Word how to identify these false prophets or teachers. It is our responsibility to search His Word for the truth. Some of the Scripture quoted in this article is bound to offend some, but if we are offended by Scripture, we need to do some searching. I was doing Bible study one morning, just after I commenced this follow up of the false prophets, and I came across the following verse:

Galatians 1:10 10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of Elohim? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Messiah.

This verse convicted me and came to mind often during this study, every time I doubted whether I should include some Scripture or not, I was reminded. I hope the same holds true for you. We should be searching for truth and in our hearts we all are, but sometimes we are persuaded by a charismatic teacher to compromise on YHVH’s Word. We are to guard against that. Carefully consider who you choose to lead you. Measure them against YHVH’s word and if they do not measure up, do not follow them. Do not submit yourself to their authority by standing under their teaching. More importantly, measure yourself against this, for each of us are a teacher of somebody else. (Jer 31:34)

1. A true prophet calls people to repentance

A true prophet of YHVH will call people to repentance; he will never “strengthen the hands of evil ones.” To “strengthen the hands of evil means “to encourage the wicked not to turn from his ungodly ways”.

Jeremiah 23:14 14 “And among the prophets of Yerushalayim I have seen a horrible matter: committing adultery and walking in falsehood. And they strengthen the hands of evil ones, so that no one turns back from his evil. All of them are like Seḏom to Me, and her inhabitants like Amorah. Ezekiel 13:22 22 “Because you disheartened the righteous with falsehood when I did not cause him grief, but have encouraged the wicked not to turn from his wicked way and preserve his life,

What is the tendency of the leaders and teachers in our time? They focus on the people; they want to make them feel good. They want to tickle their ears with new things and things they want to hear. They focus on the comfort of the people, and they do not speak of sin or repentance. They teach and encourage lawlessness; they strengthen the hands of evil ones, so no one turns back from his evil. This is contrary to what a true prophet of YHVH does. This is what they are to do! They are to declare to the people their transgression and call them to repentance.

Isaiah 58:1 1 “Cry loudly, do not hold back; Raise your voice like a trumpet, And declare to My people their transgression And to the house of Jacob their sins.

2. A false prophet changes YHVH’s Word

Jeremiah 23:36 36 “For you will no longer remember the oracle of YHVH, because every man’s own word will become the oracle, and you have perverted the words of the living Elohim, YHVH of hosts, our Elohim.

I have included the translation of The Scriptures for clarity.

Jeremiah 23:36 36 “But the message of יהוה you no longer remember! For every man’s message is his own word, for you have changed the Words of the living Elohim, יהוה of hosts, our Elohim!

What are to be considered “the Words of Elohim”?

What do you consider to be YHVH’s Word? Which of the Scriptures, can we consider as inspired, thus the Word of Elohim? We can go into a whole new study here, but instead, let us just look at some quotes from the Apostolic writings to see what they considered to be Scripture.

1 Timothy 5:18 18 For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing,” and “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”

The above verse is from the book of Timothy. The first quote is from Deut 25:4 and the second from Luke 10:7. They are quoted alongside each other and are referred to as Scripture by Paul. A scholar like Paul would not quote words from the book of Luke and call it Scripture if it was not.

2 Peter 3:1–2 1 This is now, beloved, the second letter I am writing to you in which I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, 2 that you should remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets and the commandment of Elohim and Savior spoken by your apostles.

 

Predictions (literally, “words spoken previously”) of the holy prophets, either those of the Tanakh or recent New Covenant prophets (Ac 11:27&N). The rest of the chapter suggests the latter, even though at  1:19 “the prophetic Word” refers to the Tanakh. Kefa (Peter) regards the command given by the Lord and Deliverer through your emissaries as having as much authority over believers’ lives as the predictions of the holy prophets, as is also clear from v. 15&N 1

This is confirmed by Jude 17

Jude 17 17 But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Master Y’shua the Messiah,

In the next passage we see Paul’s writings being referred to as part of Scripture by Peter

2 Peter 3:15–17 15 and regard the patience of our Master as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness,

“This is the only place in the New Testament where one of its authors refers to another of its authors as such. In fact, with the phrase, “the other Scriptures,” Kefa (Peter) gives Sha’ul’s(Paul’s) letters the status of Holy Writ. Kefa (Peter)commends Sha’ul (Paul)as our dear brother; there is no conflict between them, some nineteenth-century scholars to the contrary notwithstanding. It is possible, however, says Kefa, to distort what Sha’ul writes. The most common distortion is in the direction of antinomianism; this happens especially when Sha’ul’s letters are read apart from their Tanakh and Gospels-Acts background. “1

2 Timothy 3:16 16 All Scripture is inspired by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;

The Greek word “graphe” is used in all the quoted passages where the word “scripture” is used, it is used to both refer to the Tanakh and the Apostolic Scriptures. If the Tanakh had a different status, another word would have been used.

33.53 γραφήb, ῆς f: a particular passage of the OT—‘Scripture, Scripture passage.’ λέγει γὰρ ἡ γραφή, Πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων ε’π̓ αὐτῷ οὐ καταισχυνθήσεται ‘for the Scripture says, Whoever believes in him will not be disappointed’ Ro 10:11. 2

We see from the above quotes that both Paul’s writings, and the Gospels were considered as part of the Scriptures, together with the whole Tanakh. We could therefor not exclude any of the books we currently have in our Bibles as inspired Scripture.

3. A false prophet denies Y’shua

2 Peter 2:1 1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

1 John 4:1–3 1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from Elohim, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of Elohim: every spirit that confesses that Y’shua Messiah has come in the flesh is from Elohim; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Y’shua is not from Elohim; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

We are not trying to say with these quotes that every Jew, who doesn’t believe in Y’shua, is a false prophet, but there are anti-missionaries out there who will ruthlessly do anything possible to sow doubt in your mind regarding Y’shua, His divinity and the Apostolic Scriptures. It is their purpose to convince Torah-observant believers in Y’shua, to convert to Judaism and be under their authority. Once again, choose what you read and who you listen to with great care. Doubt is the first step to change. If they can sow doubt in your mind, you become very vulnerable and that makes it extremely easy to introduce subtle deception.

4. They say YHVH said, when He didn’t say

Ezekiel 13:2–3 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy from their own inspiration, ‘Listen to the word of YHVH! 3 ‘Thus says YHVH Elohim, “Woe to the foolish prophets who are following their own spirit and have seen nothing. Ezekiel 13:6–9 6They see falsehood and lying divination who are saying, YHVH declares,’ when YHVH has not sent them; yet they hope for the fulfillment of their word. 7 “Did you not see a false vision and speak a lying divination when you said, YHVH declares,’ but it is not I who have spoken?” ’ ” 8 Therefore, thus says YHVH Elohim, “Because you have spoken falsehood and seen a lie, therefore behold, I am against you,” declares YHVH Elohim. 9 “So My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will have no place in the council of My people, nor will they be written down in the register of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel, that you may know that I am YHVH Elohim.

Be careful of prophets or teachers who tell you YHVH said, when He didn’t say.

  • Firstly, YHVH will never say anything contrary to His Word. It is yet again our responsibility to study the Scripture and see if what was said is indeed in line with Scripture.
  • Secondly, be aware that people will use the name of YHVH to make what they say more credible, they boastfully declare that YHVH told them, instead of being humble and allowing the Word of YHVH to “speak “.

YHVH spoke against these “prophets” through the prophet Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 14:14 14 Then YHVH said to me, “The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds. Jeremiah 23:31 31 “Behold, I am against the prophets,” declares YHVH, “who use their tongues and declare, YHVH declares.’

If a teacher tells you, something that sounds too fantastic to be true, it usually is, and if it is not found in Scripture or contrary to Scripture, it is false! Furthermore, if they have to tell you, YHVH said it to give it credibility, run!

5. They steal YHVH’s Words from each other and say it is their own

Jeremiah 23:30 30 “Therefore behold, I am against the prophets,” declares YHVH, “who steal My words from each other.

False prophets go about plagiarizing each other; they steal words from another. They parrot after one another. We see that very often. When you study the Scriptures, you begin to discern false teaching, and when you do, you quickly pick up who the “parrots” are.

6. False prophets relate false dreams

When is a dream a false dream? We can ask the same question about a vision, as the two are closely related.

Jeremiah 23:32 32 “Behold, I am against those who have prophesied false dreams,” declares YHVH, “and related them and led My people astray by their falsehoods and reckless boasting; yet I did not send them or command them, nor do they furnish this people the slightest benefit,” declares YHVH.

Interpretation of dreams This was one of the main preoccupations of Egyptian magicians. In Genesis 41:8 we are told that Pharaoh summoned the magicians and wise men to interpret his dreams. There were also special books in which dreams and their interpretations were recorded. One such book, of the 19th-18th centuries BC, arranges dreams in tabular form, according to the predictions that may be inferred from them. The first list contains dreams that predict good, followed by those that foretell all kinds of calamities. There is a fixed formula: ‘If a man did so-and-so in his dream it is a good omen, and such-and-such will happen to him’.” 3
“Dreams and visions.—Numerous instances occur in which Divine intimations were communicated to men by dreams and visions. (1) In so far as these were spontaneous and unsought, they do not properly belong to the domain of divination. Such occur in Gen 20:8, 28:12, 31:10, 24, 37:5, 1 Kings 3:5, Matt 1:20, 2:12, 27:19. Dreams are spoken of as a legitimate channel for God’s communications to His prophets and others (Nu 12:6, 1 Sam 28:6, Job 33:15, Jl 2:28).— (2) But the belief in Divine warnings through dreams came very near to divination when Interpreters were sought to make clear their meaning, as in Egypt (Gen 40:5ff., 41:1 Pharaoh calls the chartummīm—a word used only in the sense of scribes possessed of occult knowledge), among the Midianites (Judges 7:13), and in Babylon (Deut 2:2).— (3) Dreams were sought by the prophets of a lower order in Israel, and it is known that among the Egyptians and other ancient nations special means, such as fasting or drugs, were used to induce them, from the belief that they were Divine communications. In Egypt it was a common practice for worshippers to sleep within the precincts of the temples in order to obtain intimations by dreams, and some devotees lived by the rewards received by them for recounting the dreams which had come to them in the temple. References to misleading divination by dreams occur in Deut 13:1–5 (prophets were to he judged by the character of their teaching and to be put to death if they favoured idolatry), Jer 23:25–28, 27:9, 29:8, Zec 10:2.4

YHVH gives dreams and visions as a means of communication, but if dreams or visions are sought or induced by drugs or fasting, it becomes divination. We should not do certain things to enable YHVH to communicate with us. He does; we are to listen, not seek after the spectacular. To some people, He does communicate in dreams or visions, but not to all, and it is not for anybody to switch it on and off on demand. That borders on divination, we never read of any prophet who sought a dream or vision from YHVH, He gives it according to His desire.

7. False prophets use divination as a means to obtain prophesy

This seventh sign is related to the previous one, but there are differences. To use divination is to dabble in the occult. The nations around Israel were experts as far as these things were concerned. That is the reason YHVH told them not to intermingle with the nations in order not to learn their ways. Their ways are contrary to YHVH’s ways.

Ezekiel 13:9 9 “So My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will have no place in the council of My people, nor will they be written down in the register of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel, that you may know that I am YHVH Elohim.

“The false prophets claimed to speak in the name of YHVH, just as Jeremiah and Ezekiel did, but they didn’t get their messages from YHVH. Ezekiel spoke against both false prophets (Eze 13:1–16) and false prophetesses (Eze 13:17–23) who were actually using the occult practices forbidden to the people of Israel (Deut. 18:9–14).”  5

What were these occult practices?

Deuteronomy 18:9–11 9 “When you enter the land which YHVH your Elohim gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations. 10 “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.

A few things are mentioned in this passage, the question is, is this applicable to our time? Do people, even believers, practice any of these? We have found explanations for some of these in order to show you how this still features in everyday life, even among believers.

Magic charms

“They practiced the magical arts they had probably learned in Babylon, all of which were forbidden to the Jews (Deut. 18:9–14). They manufactured magic charms that people could wear on various parts of the body and thus ward off evil. “  5

I have seen “amulets” sold by a well known messianic teacher, which is worn around the neck, with special essential oil in to ward of illness. Is this any different to what the nations did? Who is our protection against illness? This is a popular practice among new agers and occultists, but people fall for this deception, because it is not called an amulet and people are told that YHVH made everything for our benefit and haSatan stole it. Do not fall for this deception!

Divination

This was based on the assumption that every event, good or bad, could be foretold by certain signs discernible to the eye of a connoisseur. Such signs were recorded in books, one of which contains no less than 170 clay tablets filled with them. They included such things as a halo round the sun or moon, eclipses, certain constellations of the heavenly bodies, atmospheric phenomena, the flight of birds or insects, births of humans and animals, especially unnatural ones.”  3

Divination and the interpretation of omensThe word for omen is “nahas”

5727 נָחַשׁ (nā∙ḥǎš): v.; ≡ Str 5172; TWOT 1348—1. LN 53.96–53.101 (piel) practice divination, i.e., interpret omens and signs, as a way to learn the will of God, or the gods, known for future contingencies (Ge 30:27; 44:5,15; Lev 19:26; Dt 18:10; 2Ki 17:17; 21:6; 2Ch 33:6+), see also domain LN 27.34–27.47; 2. LN 53.96–53.101 (piel) take something as an omen or sign (1Ki 20:33+) 6

Divination, interpreting of omens and astrology was practiced by the nations around Israel. These have all found their place within the believing community in our day. These teachers deceive by saying it is not astrology, but astronomy. The truth is, the moment you use astronomical data to predict the future; you are practicing astrology. The same can be said with regard to the interpretation of omens. If you use any event to foretell a future event, you are guilty of the practice of divination. YHVH gave us His prophets to know forthcoming events, He never instructed us to look for His plans in the stars, on the contrary; He detests it.

Isaiah 47:13–14 13 “You are wearied with your many counsels; Let now the astrologers, Those who prophesy by the stars, Those who predict by the new moons, Stand up and save you from what will come upon you. 14 “Behold, they have become like stubble, Fire burns them; They cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame; There will be no coal to warm by Nor a fire to sit before!

We often hear the argument that all this information about the constellations was revealed to Enoch, who passed it on the Noah and his descendants, and therefor it is good. Go and read the book of Enoch for yourself. Astrology, astronomy and witchcraft and other things were revealed to the people by fallen angels. YHVH called, that which the people were taught, sin. Later on, in the book we see Enoch being shown, amongst other things, the constellations, the movement of the sun and the moon and how glorious it was made. He even learned the names of the stars. That is YHVH’s glory, His creation, and how wonderfully everything was made, everything perfect. But Enoch was not taught how to predict the future by it.

How will YHVH punish the false prophets?

I am adding this so we can all read it and consider our ways with fear and trembling. YHVH is not mocked.

Ezekiel 13:9 9 “So My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will have no place in the council of My people, nor will they be written down in the register of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel, that you may know that I am YHVH Elohim. Jeremiah 23:15 15 “Therefore thus says YHVH of hosts concerning the prophets, ‘Behold, I am going to feed them wormwood And make them drink poisonous water, For from the prophets of Jerusalem Pollution has gone forth into all the land.’ ” Jeremiah 23:39–40 39 “Therefore behold, I will surely forget you and cast you away from My presence, along with the city which I gave you and your fathers. 40 “I will put an everlasting reproach on you and an everlasting humiliation which will not be forgotten.”

Conclusion

We are going to end this article with a quote from a commentary on Jeremiah 23.

“Finally, the false prophets were speaking under a false inspiration (Jer 23:25–32). They depended on dreams and delusions of the mind, and they even plagiarized messages from one another! Compared to the nourishing wheat of the Word, their messages were only straw; you couldn’t eat it, build with it, or even be warmed by it. The message of the true prophet is like a hammer that can tear down and build up (see  Jer 1:10) and even break the hardest rocks (Jer 23:29). The Word is like fire that consumes waste and purifies whatever it touches. Jeremiah had the Word burning in his heart (Jer 20:9; see Luke 24:32) and on his lips (Jer. 5:14). He was God’s assayer, using the fire of the Word to test the lives of the people (Jer 6:27). There are false prophets and teachers in our world today (2 Peter 2:1; 1 John 4:1–6), people who claim to know God’s will because of their dreams, their study of astrology, or their special “spiritual” gifts. Some of them have invaded the church (Jude 3–4). Whatever anyone says who claims to be speaking for YHVH must be tested by the Word of Elohim. “To the Law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them” (Isa. 8:20).” 7

 

Isaiah 8:20 20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn. Psalm 111:10 10 The fear of YHVH is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.

      Thank you so much for your thoroughness! Thank you for your boldness in proclaiming Gods word and for adding so much scripture to back up what you have said. I have seen so much of this happening, but am glad to have it all put together in one place. I do my own research, but this is one time that I sought wisdom from others. I needed it for the sake of expediency. God bless you on your journey as you seek to build His Kingdom!

    I thank you for your teaching on false prophets. I have
    been speaking to friends about the rising of false teachings in my
    country but seem few understand or bother what I am saying. They
    said I study too much and advised me to think simply. I heed God’s
    advice and that is to study His Word diligently and God set me free
    with His Truths.The Holy Spirit begins a work in me. I told Him I
    didn’t want to follow men’s movement anymore or hear their positive
    message because it is just not real life or the life Jesus taught.
    3 years ago, whenever, I listen to the weekly sermons, I just felt
    something is not right, though not wrong from secular point of view
    or touching the scriptures on the surface. God has been guiding me
    to read and study Revelation, Jeremiah, Isaiah and recently
    Ezekiel. Your site gave me further confirmation that it is not I
    feel is wrong but false teaching has invaded into God’s church. I
    am persecuted by my believing husband of 19yrs . Indeed his cell
    leader is still encouraging him , treating him like a victim but
    they do not know how he behave at home. Today , as I read your
    reference to Jer 23:14, God’s chastisement is in my family since
    the church no longer discipline. I pray David’s prayer
    Psa119:81-88. I also pray God’s deliverance over our teenage son
    who is constantly exposed to his father’s vulgarities and profaning
    the name of God in the home. I felt it humiliates the blood of
    Christ. It is the real life encounter that I walked with a man who
    has no fear of the Lord in his life, sometimes, I trembled. I thank
    God that it must be God’s love for me that though we live together,
    my husband no longer consummate the marriage with me since I
    conceived our child.

      TO JA:
      I will pray for you. May God protect you and bless you fully as you continue to seek Him and His truths! May you go in His peace and in the strength of His might-His power!

    I felt relieved by your message. I encountered a self acclaimed prophet who was able to manipulate me with his false teachings,beliefs and divination.He owns a church. Most of the attributes of false a prophet you listed, this man engages in them.I once confronted him to change his ways especially about sleeping with women but he denied it even when I got evidence that he was sleeping with church women. Due to my personal efforts towards my God,I had a revelation about him.That revelation was showed me how evil the man is.I confronted him again and told him that I wouldn’t be coming to his church again.He was dump founded. However, I made a surprise visit to his church again on a Sunday.He used me as a topic of his message. He was telling the congregation that someone who engages in gossips and double mind about worshiping God is being deceived by the devil.He was referring to me indirectly.

    However, I wasn’t surprised. I was prepared to hear that as the spirit directed me.I really wanted to stop attending his church when I discovered how evil the man is,but the spirit advised me to do everything possible to convert the man to God.That I could change the man.Since then ,I have been praying for the man to be arrested by God.

    Pls,I need advice on what to do to win this man back to God because my spirit tells me I can handle it.

      Ezeakunne,

      Our advice: Stay away and do not confront this man. Rather intercede for him in prayer. Get people to pray with you. Leave it to YHVH to deal with.

    Can you clarify what you mean by, “plagiarized messages” I often when speaking to someone say, ” I read in this book or the minister at Church preached this or that.” Is that what is believed to be plagiarizing others messages?

      Shalom,

      No quoting someone or someones work is not plagerizing them. You plagerize when you tell about it and claim it as your own work or revelation. Shalom, Elsa
