The False Prophet

The second beast of Revelation 13 is the false prophet whose job is to exalt the first beast with great signs and wonders.  The first beast appears to be “anointed” but in a false manner and would be labeled as a “false christ”.  A true prophet draws men toward Our Heavenly Father whereas a false prophet moves men away from HIM.  A prophet is one who speaks on behalf of another.  The term “false” does not necessarily mean that all is spoken is a lie.  A false prophecy can contain facts but has the wrong intent behind the words spoken thus the prophecy will deceive you.  This is why it is critical to focus on the Living Word and be led by THE SPIRIT.  You will not be deceived by false prophets.  As you dwell in your closet, your sensitivity to THE SPIRIT increases.  With this greater sensitivity you then read Scripture that take on deeper meaning to you, thus you grow and mature.  How many of us have read the same passage at different points in time and see greater Truths expressed that were missed in earlier studies?

A false prophet’s purpose is to influence your mind, will, and emotions.  A great sign seen by many is an emotional experience leading you to believe the one who disclosed it beforehand.  If I tell half of the readers that the stock market is going up tomorrow and the other half that it is going down during the same period, among one group I will be right and they will view me as being able to foretell the future.  How easily are men deceived!

Our FATHER is the GOD of Love.  If a minister preaches eternal damnation in hell, is he a false prophet?  For whom is he speaking?  If FATHER has a plan of reconciliation of all mankind, why does an evangelist use threats, intimidation, fear, and coercion to bring us up to the altar?  Is the evangelist a false prophet as well?  How many books have been written about Armageddon and evoked fear in the hearts of the readers?  Would those authors fall into the same category?

Love dispels falsehood and is not moved by fear promoted by the false prophet.  This second beast has an appearance as a lamb, a deception:

Revelation 13:11  Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.

He speaks like a dragon who promotes fear and intimidation by using threatening words.  Everything coming out of his mouth is deceptive in nature though he comes in sheep’s clothing.  The words of the false prophets are designed to put you in bondage and keep you submitted to its leading and direction.  You are told to stay under its covering of protection as though FATHER is unable to protect you HIMSELF.  You are belittled by the false prophet’s superior intelligence and you dare not challenge it.  You are deceived into believing the only way you can hear FATHER is through an intermediary who is “anointed” and called to be your overseer.  This goes contrary with Jesus’ own words:

John 10:25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me.

26 But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you.

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

30 I and My Father are one.”

You don’t need a man to be your intermediary, FATHER is fully available and accessible to each and every one of us.  The false prophet would lead you to believe otherwise.  Why do you think that so many have been removed from the local church and have been somewhat isolated from their teachings?  We have to be removed from the noise of the world’s influence to improve our hearing.  How many have attempted to make you feel guilty because you departed their “covering”?  Does FATHER’S Love condemn?  Moses had to be separated, Joseph had to be separated, Jesus had to be separated, thus you and I have to be separated in our final preparation.

The message of the false prophet is eternal damnation and destruction.  It is the exact opposite of FATHER’S Divine Intent of restoration.  The false prophet will use isolated Scripture references to convince the mind of this doctrine.  As a young man, I was taken in by this preaching assuming that the pastor would not lead me astray.  But later as I matured and grew in HIS Word, I came to realize that HIS Love would not allow 95% of mankind to be condemned to an eternal damnation.  I am no longer deceived by the false prophet nor will I allow any other message other than the Good News of FATHER determine my path.  The revelation of HIS Love is the key to finding this path and staying on it.

In contrast to the message of the false prophet, read carefully what Paul wrote in Ephesians chapter 2:

4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,

5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),

6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,

9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.

10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

This is exactly why we must dispel the notion that this final book, the Fifth Gospel, is one of bad news when in fact it exposes the hindrances to our maturing process.  It exposes the source of the deception that has kept mankind from being restored to FATHER.  The mysteries have been reserved for the initiated for the culmination of the return of Christ and the harvest of the entire planet.  The false prophet has been fully exposed!
