Being part of the elect makes us vulnerable to a certain extend. We are the ones who could be deceived. Knowing this is a motivation for us to search the Scriptures to ensure that we are not part of those who would be deceived. This article is meant to offer some help in that and at the same time serve as a warningâ€¦ “therefor let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.”
This 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.
We are living in a time where lawlessness is increasing, YHVH’s law is being replaced with man’s law more and more. I have recently seen a re-writing of the ten commandments; it is called “the ten for churches.” YHVHs Ten Commandments were re-written “to put them in the context of modern-day living.”
These are the signs of the times we live in. Many false prophets will arise and there will be a great falling away before the end comes. Y’shua called us to action: He warned “see to it that you are not deceived!” This article is meant to help you identify false prophets and teachers in order for you to heed His warning.
In 1 Kings 13:10-34, we read the account of the prophet, the donkey and the lion. In this chronicle we have two prophets, one faithful to YHVH’s word and another living within the borders of the apostate king. This is indeed an intriguing chronicle but also a very stern warning. What could you learn from this?
