And Many 'False' Prophets Shall Rise,
Shalom Aleichem. It is indeed my great pleasure and deep honor to be given this opportunity to come humbly before you to speak that which has put in my heart to share with you and the world. I am truly thankful and shall forever be humbled and grateful to Almighty God, , for choosing me to be one of His many vessels to share His word of truth with His people. To give me this opportunity required Him to make the greatest sacrifice one could make, and that is, the sacrificing of His only begotten Son, , for us.
Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends. has been enduring excruciating pain, extreme agony, mental torment, and unbearable loneliness for the past sixteen years--all for the great love that He has for us--His friends. Yet it is pleasing His Father, , to bruise Him and to put Him to grief: For has made the soul of an offering for our sin--transgressing His laws (Isaiah 53:10). Praise !
And although we know that He longs to be with us, and we with Him, we ask the same question as written in Matthew 26:54: But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, unless these things be as written? Because of the teachings of , we have come to know and understand that all of these things must be done that the Scriptures might be fulfilled (Matthew 26:56). Praise !
Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends. How do we know if we are friends of ? According to John 15:14, we are His friends, "if" we do whatsoever He commands us to do. With that understanding, this is one of the many reasons why we are here today celebrating our Twenty-Sixth Annual Feast of Tabernacles/Holy Convocation in the solar year of 6009, in the land of Canada, in the beautiful city of Montreal, in the province of Quebec--all because we love doing as He has commanded us to do, and that is to not only keep the law of the Feast of Tabernacles/Holy Convocation, but to also keep all of the laws of . Praise ! Praise !
Worthy is the Lamb, , that is being slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing (Revelation 5:12). All praises be to for sending His Suffering Servant and Son, the One promised to come in the Old Testament to fulfill the Messianic prophecies in the New Testament.
The One who has come in the volume of the Book, meaning He has come with full knowledge of the Book as well as to fulfill all that is written therein--from Genesis through Revelation. The One I am talking about is , the Root and offspring of David, the Mighty Lion of the tribe of Yehuwdah (Judah). The only One who, above all others, has prevailed to not only open the Book (the Holy Bible), but to also loose the seven seals thereof. Praise !! Praise .
Welcome to this seminar entitled, "And Many 'False' Prophets Shall Rise, And Shall Deceive Many," Part Two. Before getting into our seminar today, a recapitulation of what we talked about in Part One will be very helpful in making a smooth transition into our next extended study of this subject matter. We read in Daniel 12:4 and 9 where commanded Daniel to shut up the words, and to seal the Book till the time of the end. A sealed book, by definition, was found to be a book that is beyond anyone's understanding and, therefore, to be unknown. And Revelation 5:3 attested to the fact that no man in heaven, nor in Earth, neither under the Earth, even with the highest degree of earthly knowledge, was able to open this Book, neither to look thereon.
However, we read in Revelation 5:5 that there is but ONE who was found worthy to open this Book and to loose the seven seals thereof, and that One was the Lion of the tribe of Yehuwdah (Judah), the Root of David. Our incontestable research proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that is the LION "of" the tribe of YEHUWDAH (Judah). We validated that the tribe of Yehuwdah is the so-called Black people of America, descendants of slaves today. And we also confirmed that is the Root of David. With those well-documented facts, we concluded that is the ONLY ONE who has prevailed above all others to open the Book that commanded Daniel to seal till the end of time--which is today.
Since our research showed overwhelmingly that there is but ONE who is worthy and has prevailed to open the Book, we questioned the mission as well as the legitimacy of the millions who are claiming to be sent by God. With those thoughts in mind, we went to The Guinness Book of Records, and discovered that "The world's largest religious organization is the Roman Catholic Church which in 1989 had 160 cardinals, 754 archbishops, 3,246 bishops, 401,479 priests, and 885,645 nuns. We added to these numbers the hundreds of thousands of preachers, rabbis, monks, evangelists, reverends, reverend doctors, pastors, chaplains, and the like, scattered all over the world.
Then we asked the question, If there is but "ONE" who is worthy and has prevailed above all others to open the Book and to loose the seven seals thereof, then who are these people? Scripture after Scripture identified them as false prophets, which were consistent with Matthew 24:11, which said, "And many 'false' prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." We then read selected Scriptures in Jeremiah, Chapter 23, to support the conclusion that God, , Himself said that He did not send these millions of self-proclaimed clerics.
To corroborate this, we read in Hosea 4:1 that in spite of these millions who claim to be sent by God, there is yet no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God, , in the land; and we read 1 John 5:19 which verified that the whole world lies in wickedness. We told you that one reason for this is because the millions of clerics are preaching and promoting antinomianism, which is the doctrine or belief that "the Gospel frees the over 2 'billion' Christians from required obedience to 'any' law, whether scriptural, civil, or moral, and that salvation is attained solely through faith and the gift of divine grace." With that understanding, everyone was reminded that the name is the only name under heaven given among men, whereby they must be saved.
And to conclude the whole matter, everyone was given a choice to make, and that was, if be God, then serve Him; if Satan the Devil, then serve Him. But everyone was told that they must choose this day whom they will serve.
Having laid that foundation, we are now ready to begin our discussion today, which is, "And Many 'False' Prophets Shall Rise, And Shall Deceive Many." Matthew 7:15-20 has been chosen as our foundation Scripture for this seminar. We are going to start with Verse 15, which reads:
 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.To come in sheep's clothing and be looked upon as a wolf is described, metaphorically, as a wolf in sheep's clothing. Comprehension requires a decoding of this Scripture.
Therefore, in accordance with Bartlett's Roget's Thesaurus, copyright 1996, on page 806, beware (reference number 386.26) means to keep your distance, run for your life, and hands off. According to the book, Metaphorically Speaking, copyright 1990, on page 233, to be a wolf in sheep's clothing is "to be a hypocrite although masquerading as something harmless (Matthew 7:15)." A hypocrite is described as "a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess." To masquerade is "to disguise oneself." To disguise oneself is "to conceal the truth by a counterfeit form or appearance." And harm, the root of the word harmless, is "moral injury; or evil" (as referenced in Random House Webster's Unabridged Dictionary, copyright 1999, Computer Software).
So this Scripture serves as a warning to the people of the Earth to keep their distance from the belief of the false prophets; to even run away from their teachings. And not only that, but to keep hands off all of their ways and doings. Why? Because these false prophets are persons who are pretending that they have been sent by God, and that they have virtues, morals, or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that they do not actually possess.
Furthermore, they are also concealing the fact that they have absolutely no knowledge of the "truth" by putting on a counterfeit form and by giving the appearance of being holy, as opposed to being evil. Therefore, they have caused the people to believe that what they are saying is not morally injurious to them. Such actions support the conclusion that ...inwardly, they are ravening wolves.
The word inwardly is one and the same as "privately, secretly, or within the self." Ravening in Greek is spelled h-a-r-p-a-x, pronounced har'-pax (reference number 727 from 726), and it means "rapacious" (as referenced in the New Strong's Complete Dictionary of Bible Words, copyright 1996, on page 208).
Based on the integrity of The Random House Webster's Unabridged Dictionary, copyright 1999, Computer Software, to be rapacious is to be avaricious. Avaricious, covetous, greedy, and rapacious "share the sense of desiring to possess more of something than one already has or might in normal circumstances be entitled to. Avaricious often implies a pathological, driven greediness for money or other valuables. Covetous implies a powerful and usually illicit desire for the property or possessions of another. Greedy suggests a naked and uncontrolled desire for almost anything--food and drink, money, emotional gratification. Rapacious implies an aggressive, predatory, insatiable, and unprincipled desire for power."
On the other hand, a wolf is characterized as "a seducer," according to Webster's New World Dictionary & Thesaurus, copyright 1998, Computer Software. The word seduce (the root of the word seducer), as documented in The Random House College Dictionary, Revised Edition, copyright 1988, on page 1191, means "to lead astray or draw away, as from principles, faith, or allegiance; to corrupt."
So we can infer from all of these indisputable facts that inwardly they are ravening wolves is confirming that these millions of clerics, in a very private way, desire to possess more of worldly things than they already have or might in normal circumstances be entitled to. Secretly, they have a pathological, driven greediness for large sums of money and other valuables. And within themselves (or within their hearts), they also have a powerful and usually illicit desire for acquiring the property or possessions of others. In fact, they possess a naked and uncontrolled desire for almost anything--especially, large amounts of fine foods and drinks, mega sanctuaries, posh homes, fine cars, expensive clothing, costly jewelry, and, not to mention, unquenchable emotional gratification.
More than that, they even have an aggressive, predatory, insatiable, and unprincipled desire for power. In order to acquire this power, these false prophets have led the whole world to stray away from the righteous principles of God, , as commanded in the Holy Bible. Such actions have caused the people to draw away from putting their faith in God, ; and, by doing so, they have sworn their allegiance to the false prophets. Because of these things, the people of the Earth have become totally corrupt, meaning "debased in character"--in other words, perverted, wicked, and evil (according to the same aforementioned source on page 302). Such actions are, unquestionably, indicative of wolves in sheep's clothing.
Continuing with our foundation Scripture, let us now move to Verses 16-20 (of Matthew, Chapter 7), which spell out how to know, without a doubt, these false prophets. Let us read please:
 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?We shall know the false prophets by their fruits. The word fruits is a figurative expression of something else. That being the case, consultation with some of our leading internationally known authorities is obligatory.
First, predicated on the correctness of the internationally recognized authority Collins Cobuild Dictionary, copyright 2003, on page 585, the fruits of "someone's work or activity are the good things that result from it." And relying on the credibility of our second authority, Merriam Webster's 11th Collegiate Dictionary, copyright 2003, Computer Software, we can state affirmatively that fruit is synonymous to progeny; and progeny is described as "a body of successors; a product." A product is descriptive of "something resulting from a set of conditions." Condition is equivalent to "manners, ways, and a state of being." And lastly, the word be (-ing) is characterized as "something that actually exists; or is occurring."
So, with these compelling facts, it is clear that we shall know the false prophets by the "good" things that have resulted from their work or activities throughout the whole world. We shall also know them by the resultant manners and ways of the people as well as by the state that is actually existing or occurring among the global community today.
That being so, then let us pause here a moment and make an assessment of the whole state of affairs that is actually existing or occurring in the world in which we live. In other words, let us seek to find out if any good things have resulted from the work or activities of these "millions" of false prophets. In order to help expedite this diligent investigation, consider the following questions, if you will.
Politically: Has the doctrine as taught, prescribed, and practiced by the millions of false prophets who are in every country on the planet Earth produced peace on earth? Has it stopped the world leaders from lying, stealing, cheating, taking bribes, and misleading the people? Has it caused the politicians to be honest, trustworthy, and faithful to their constituents? Has it eliminated abuse of power by those in government? And most of all, has it stopped terrorism and terrorist threats?
Well, let us continue. Economically: Have the teachings of those who believe they are sent by God to tell the people what God wants them to know prevented the American government, in particular, from accumulating a trillion dollar trade deficit? Have their teachings given them the wisdom of how to even pay off the deficit in full? Have their teachings caused the people of Earth--including those in third world countries--to be economically sufficient and independent?
Too, have their teachings caused the powers that be to pay the people fair wages for their labor so they can feed, clothe, and house their families in a respectable manner? Have the teachings of the false prophets made it so people will not have to struggle to pay their bills and from maxing out their credit cards just to be able to live from week to week? And have their teachings stopped people from having to live from paycheck to paycheck? So far, have the doctrine or teachings of the false prophets resulted in good works or evil works. We shall know them by their work.
Well, let me ask you this. Educationally: Has belief in Jesus, as espoused by the millions of false prophets all over the Earth, eliminated illiteracy on Earth? Has it stopped the killings in the schools? Has it stopped the fighting in the schools? Has it helped the children to learn on a higher level? Has belief in Jesus caused the lawmakers to allow the Holy Bible to be taught in the public schools? Has their belief in Jesus even lifted the ban against prayer in the public schools? Well, with that, have the activities of the false prophets resulted in good works or evil works?
To establish our points of view beyond a reasonable doubt as to the state that is actually existing or occurring in the world today, let me just continue this line of questioning: Socially: Has the counsel of the millions of false prophets stopped murder or blood shed on the Earth? Has the Pope announcing universally that the Vatican does not approve of same sex marriages stopped the gays from fighting to get it legalized? Has it stopped the practice of homosexuality and the increase of gays and lesbians all over the Earth? Or, are they themselves practicing and promoting homosexuality?
Has the counsel of the false prophets put an end to pedophilia, pornography, child molestation, bestiality; kidnapping of children, incest, and rape? Has their counsel stopped the spread of sexual diseases and unprecedented sexual promiscuity? Has it stopped poverty, hunger, and suffering all over the Earth? Has it made the world a better or safer place to live?
Furthermore, have the false prophets used their holy ghost power to rid the Earth of the many different kinds of cancers; tumors; high and low blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity? Have they used it to prevent strokes, heart attacks, Alzheimer's, and mental disorders?
Those who claim to be filled with the holy ghost spirit to heal the people, have they gone into the hospitals, nursing homes, and hospice clinics and used their holy ghost power and authority to, right on the spot, heal all who are terminally ill in the countries where they are? Or, do some of them just wait until they can get a big crowd of thousands, and then use a few "selected" and unlearned individuals, hit or touch them on the head and declare them to be healed?
Moreover, given that the false prophets are spread out all over the Earth, have their presence and words of wisdom stopped women from murdering millions of their unborn babies every year in America, China, and other foreign countries? Have these millions of false prophets put together an unprecedented force, using their over 2 "billion" followers, to stop some of these governments, especially the American government, from actually making it legal to murder millions of unborn babies?
Have these millions of false prophets, the most powerful group of people on Earth--who claim they have been sent by God to teach the people what God wants them to know--used their unlimited power as well as their endless resources and global connection to force the governments to shut down every single abortion clinic or office on the face of the Earth? Thus, have their counsel and words of wisdom resulted in good works or evil works?
Now let me ask you this: Have what the false prophets been preaching to the people stopped gambling, betting, playing the lottery, and bingo? Has it stopped prostitution? Has it stopped witchcraft, devil worshipping, fortune telling, and all sorcery-type activities throughout the land? Then, too, has it caused people to be honest and straightforward? Has it stopped whispering, gossiping, holding grudges, and backstabbing? Has it stopped spousal abuse, sexual harassment, and racism? Has it caused people to love one another and to treat everybody right? Has it stopped the flow of drugs into almost every community in the world? Has it changed or stopped the FCC from allowing all of the wicked debauchery that is on the television every single day, twenty-four seven, especially in America, as well as around the globe? Do you see the state that is actually existing or occurring in the world today? Seeing this, have their works resulted in good or evil upon the Earth?
Now let me switch to some questions of a spiritual nature: Under the leadership of the millions of false prophets--who have misled the people to believe that they are sent by God to tell them what God wants them to know --have the people of the Earth been raised from their spiritually dead state? Have the people taken on a moral or virtuous state of mind? As a result of their fiery sermons, do the people keep the laws of God, , as written in the Holy Bible? Do they call on the "true" name of the God of the Bible? Do they give praises to the name of the true and living God, ? Do the people know that LORD and GOD are "titles" and not the name of the God of the Holy Bible?
Furthermore, in the performance of their holy rituals, have the false prophets shaken dust and sprinkled holy water on the people to bring to their consciousness that the pictures they see of Jesus have different faces, and that those pictures were in fact painted by Roman painters--Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and others--who were commissioned by the Pope of Rome and the Queen of England to paint these pictures?
And last but not least, one final line of questions: Following the customs of the false prophets, do the billions of people who follow the teachings of Jesus as the Christ know that Jesus is a myth (fashioned, fabricated, and orchestrated by the Roman Catholic Church)? Accepting the traditions of the false prophets, do they know that Jesus is a parallel to that of Santa Claus? In other words, are they aware that Jesus is simply a lie? Therefore, conclusively, in considering all the manners, ways, and state that are actually exiting or occurring among the people of the Earth today, have the work and activities of these millions of false prophets resulted in good fruits or evil fruits?
As written, Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Subsequently, in consideration of all that we have discussed in relationship to the fruits of the false prophets, we can state emphatically and announce officially, not only to you but also to the whole world, that all of their fruits are totally corrupt, and are, therefore, evil fruits.
With that being an established fact, then the Pope--his 160 cardinals, 754 archbishops, 3,246 bishops, 401,479 priests, 885,645 nuns; as well as the hundreds of thousands of preachers, rabbis, monks, evangelists, reverends, reverend doctors, pastors, chaplains, and the like--have deceived the whole world, and this is why the "whole world" lies in wickedness (as prophesied in 1 John 5:19).
We have clearly pulled the cover off of the manners and ways of the people on the Earth today, which openly exposes the state in which the world actually exists as I speak. These conditions set forth the conclusion that the teachings of the millions of false prophets have brought forth nothing but corrupt trees and, thus, evil fruits. And as written, every tree that brings not forth good fruit shall be hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore, as a result of their evil fruits are they known.
The truth of the matter is this: "If" the teachings of the false prophets were from the good tree, which brings forth good fruits, then Jeremiah 23:22 would be a reality, and it reads:
But if they [the false prophets] had stood in My [ ] counsel, and had caused My people to hear My words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.In The Synonym Finder by J. I. Rodale, copyright 1978, on page 235, counsel means the same as teaching or words of wisdom. On page 495, hear is similar in meaning to, receive knowledge of or listen to. And in Bartlett's Roget's Thesaurus, copyright 1996, on page 1310, stand (reference number 435.16) the present tense of stood, is synonymous to heed, obey, or acknowledge.
In consideration of these facts, we can state categorically that "if" the false prophets had taken heed to, obeyed, and acknowledged the teachings of Almighty God, , the God of the Holy Bible, and had caused His people to listen to or receive the knowledge of His words of wisdom--to follow His commandments, judgments, laws, and statutes--then these millions of false prophets should have turned the people of the Earth from their evil ways as well as from the evil of their doings.
More than enough proof has been presented to substantiate that the false prophets have not taken heed to the counsel of the Almighty God, . For if they had, righteousness would prevail throughout the land, and Colossians 1:10 would be of a certainty, and it reads:
That ye might walk worthy of the Lord, , unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God, ;Instead, the million of false prophets have resolved themselves to Isaiah 28:15. Let us turn to and read that Scripture in part please, starting with the word We ...Read:
...We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:If the millions of false prophets had been walking worthy of the Lord, , and doing that which is pleasing unto Him, then all of their work would be fruitful, and they would be producing good work; and, subsequently, the whole Earth would be full of the knowledge of . But, instead, the false prophets have made a covenant with death, and with hell are they in agreement. The truth of the matter is, they have all made lies their refuge, and under falsehood have they hid themselves.
Based on what we have discussed thus far, Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, because inwardly they are ravening wolves. Being ravening wolves, they have deceived the whole world with all of their work and activities from the corrupt tree of evil, which have resulted in nothing but wickedness throughout the whole world. Yes, by their fruits are they known.
With that, we hope you have enjoyed what we have discussed up to this point. Now when we return, we shall advance our study of this subject matter to the next level and talk about some of the specific lies those in the clergy have made their refuge and some of the falsehood under which they have hid themselves.
All praises be to our heavenly Father, , for sending His most precious gift and Son, , to make the ultimate sacrifice--the giving of His life--that we might come into the knowledge of the truth. For only the "truth" shall set us free from the lies and falsehood of the many false prophets. So with that, let everything that has breath, praise !
