False Preachers

Updated: Feb 4

Dear Reader,


We are most certainly living in troublous times. We are also living in the times of the end. How so? Well, the Bible prophesies of these things.


And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet.


For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.


All these [are] the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:6-8


It is also at the times of the end where many false prophets will crawl out of the woodwork. They are arrogant, which deceptively makes them appear confident in what they are preaching, leading many into believing their message, and many into perdition.


And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?


And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. Matthew 24:3-4

You see them on the internet with their gloom and doom message, brow beating and barking God’s Holy Gospel as if they were vendors at the market selling their goods. Many of these don’t even believe their own message, they are merely actors putting on a show. When the curtains go down, behind the scenes, they are the biggest hypocrites out there. Their audience does not see how un- Christian they are. Their focus is only on self and they only interact with those which pay them homage and worship. Ultimately, this is what they are seeking, to be worshipped as a god. They care not for their audience. When they greet their members, it is with an “all is well” in order to not have to actually engage in a conversation or listen to someone else’s burdens or troubles. God forbid they spend any time with anyone that takes their attention off of themselves.


For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24


For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;


And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2 Timothy 4:3-4


They will preach their own ideologies and pick and choose what they agree with from the Bible and the Spirit of prophecy, as if they find error within them, and that they are not infallible. Blasphemy that they consider themselves not only gods, but higher than The Heavenly God Almighty. They are merely cowards who beat up on Christian men, women, and children with their fear tactics. Self- proclaimed pastors who don’t know the first thing about brotherly love. A true preacher must be led by the Holy Spirit. Makes you wonder what spirit is moving these blasphemers. Wasn’t it Satan that wanted to be like the Most High?


But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 Peter 2:1


For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21


While exalting the “sure word of prophecy” as a safe guide in times of peril, the apostle solemnly warned the church against the torch of false prophecy, which would be uplifted by “false teachers,” who would privily bring in “damnable heresies, even denying the Lord.” These false teachers, arising in the church and accounted true by many of their brethren in the faith, the apostle compared to “wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved forever.” “The latter end is worse with them,” he declared, “than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.” {AA 535.1}


Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1:3


Jude bears this message to guard believers against the seductive influence of false teachers, men who have a form of godliness but who are not safe leaders. In these last days, false teachers will arise and become actively zealous. All kinds of theories will be presented to divert the minds of men and women from the very truth that defines the position we can occupy with safety in this time when Satan is working with power upon religionists, leading them to make a pretense of being righteous, but to fail of placing themselves under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. {YRP 125.2}


Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, [in whom] my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. Isaiah 42:1-4


Christ Would Encourage Faith and Hope—[Isaiah 42:1, 2 quoted.] He [Christ] will not be like the teachers of His day. The ostentation and show and parade of piety revealed in the priests and Pharisees is not His way. [Isaiah 42:3, 4 quoted.] Christ saw the work of the priests and rulers. The very ones who needed help, the afflicted, the distressed, were treated with words of censure and rebuke, and He forbore to speak any word that would break the feeble reed. The dimly burning wick of faith and hope, He would encourage, and not quench. He would feed His flock like a shepherd; He would gather the lambs with His arms, and carry them in His bosom (Manuscript 151, 1899). { 4BC 1146.1 }


Please do not be deceived brothers and sisters. It is no time to pay homage to a false prophet, pastor, preacher or teacher that which can barely be called a man. It is God, and God alone that is worthy of your worship. Let the Word of God be your fortress where you find comfort. Take All of the Word of God and All of the Spirit of Prophecy to heart, and cast off any barking dog which picks and chooses from that which is Holy. Do not be deceived. Do not let a false preacher lead you to perdition, rather follow Jesus into His heavenly kingdom. Keep your eyes on Jesus, our true and only Lord and Savior. May God bless you and keep you. Amen.


And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Mark 1:15
