    The Differences between a False Prophet and a False Person

    in Religion

    In order to truly understand my purpose in penning this article is to first understand my definition of what a false prophet and a false person is.  A false prophet is one who claims to be all about religion and the lessons of the New Testament while doing nothing but providing those who wish to be atheists the best evidence in the world to never believe.  A false person is one who goes about their daily lives looking to be whatever the situation calls for in order to avoid being detected as false.  Now before we go any further, you need to know that my definition of these types of people may not be yours and that is alright because we all must be left to choose our own destiny and make our own choices.  All that I ask are you learning to respect another person’s truth even if it is and may never be yours.  Nothing says you ever have to agree with it nor do you have to support it but only an unsure person will refuse to respect it.

    IF RIGHTEOUSNESS COMES BY MEANS OF FALSE RULE ....

    in Religion

    What does it mean to "WATCH OUT for FALSE/ FALLEN SHORT/ FOOLISH/ DECEPTIVE / FLATTERING PROPHETS?"   (Mat.7:13-28)   Let us be wise to SEEK the MOST HIGH as true to ALL that is HIS WORD, lest we find we have relied upon CON-MEN who EXPLOIT by HIDING the TRUTH from YOU!   They FLATTER YOU that you esteem THEM as WISE; even to NEVER KNOW the MOST HIGH as HE IS!    For indeed, to exalt a LIAR is to worship a DEVIL!    The Most High sends a TRUE PROPHET not to persuade after what pleases MEN.    A TRUE PROPHET comes to speak the BLESSED TRUTH of YAH that OTHERS will NOT!

    The TRUE SERVANT-FRIEND of YAH is him who will seek YAH with ALL his HEART, MIND and SOUL for ALL HIS WILL, that NONE among us fall victim to BABYLONISH CONFUSIONS!   For there should be NO PRESUMPTUOUS SELF-RIGHTEOUS DIVISIONS among US!  (John 15:14, Galatians 1:1-8, Isaiah 48:1-<14-18>-49:6)     For if RIGHTEOUSNESS/ SALVATION/ PEACE/ DELIVERANCE/ REDEMPTION beyond EVERY LIAR/ HYPOCRITE/ FALSE PROPHET/ FALSE RELIGION comes by means of FALSE RULERS who BLIND to DIVIDE this WORLD, then the SAVIOR came and DIED in VAIN! (Gal. 2:21, Romans 14:10-12)  For indeed!   The SAVIOR gave HIS LIFE and ROSE that men discern they MUST EXCEED the UNRIGHTEOUS MISrule of MEN .. to at last trust in a RETURN to FAITH beyond ALL DEBATE, DOUBT and CONFUSION .. unto the EXCEEDING RIGHTEOUSNESS of YAH! (Mat.5:14-24, Acts 2:36-38)


    ISRAEL 2000 years ago was a subjugated  ROMAN SATRAPY whose PRIESTS were HYPOCRITES catered to ROMAN AUTHORITY. (John 19:15, Luke 12:1-3, Mal.2:1-3:9)   WHAT and WHO is the FLAW, the FALSE LAW /MISRULE that MUST be overcome in  REMEMBRANCE of the SURE ETERNAL LAW of YAH?
