What is a False Prophet?

The Original Test of a False Prophet

The Hebrew word Prophet is Navi, #5030.  The English equivalent would be, a Speaker or a Spokesman.  Knowing that anyone could, and still can, claim to be a Spokesman for God, Moses was given the unchanging plume-line of Truth, in writing.

God’s Word Was, Is and Always Will Be, True.  A False speaker/prophet can be detected as soon as they Add or Subtract from God’s Words.

God’s Word is called Torah in Hebrew, it means Teaching/Instruction.  It is also referred to in Scripture as the Way, Truth and Life.  If the words of a prophet match Torah, (the first five books of the Bible) they were compiled together, in scrolls, and referred to as Scripture or the TaNaK, an acronym for Torah, Navi/Prophets and Ketuvim, Writings.

At the time of Jesus/Yeshua, 1 Century A.D., the TaNaK was read in the Synagogues each Sabbath/7th day, Acts 15:21.  These were the Scriptures the Bereans searched to see if what Paul and Silas were saying was True, Acts 17:11.

If they would have said Torah was corrupt, abolished or old, they would have been recognized as false prophets.  We have been warned ahead of time to beware, knowing we are tested by God to see who is faithful, Deuteronomy 4:2.

“even if an angel from heaven should preach good news contrary to the message we preached to you, let him be under a curse.” Galatians 1:8 .

“The grass withers, the flower fades, But the Word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8

Y’shua (Jesus) Revealed He Is, Was and Always Will Be God’s Word.

My first understanding of the Bible was that Jesus gave us a New Testament making the first Testament, Old.  But one day it dawned on me that Jesus only taught from the Old Testament.  As a matter of fact, every 1st century writer only referred to the Old Testament as being the “Living, Spiritual, Word of God.”  Hebrews 4:12; Acts 7:38; Romans 7:14

Their letters/writings were not compiled into a book called the New Testament until the 4th Century A.D.

So when noble people, like the Berean’s, heard Speakers testifying about Y’shua, they searched the Scriptures, what we call the “old Testament,” every day to see if their words were True.

“Now the Bereans were more noble-minded than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if these teachings were true.” Acts 17:11 NIV

If Anything Didn’t Match Up To Torah It Was Rejected

With the New Testament in perspective, I began testing everything I believed to the plumb-line of God’s Word.  I humbled every prideful religious opinion I had when I realized there are no perfect translations.  Our cultural bias and indoctrinated theologians have created countless religious divisions out of One God, One Spirit, One Truth and One Assembly of faithful believers.

Y’shua, (Jesus) did not add, subtract, abolish or change Torah in any way.  If our translations make it appear that He did we need to test the words to the original Hebrew.  Y’shua Is The Word/Torah of God, this means He Is The Way, The Truth and The Life.

He did not speak His own words, John 14:24.

He explained the Scriptures spoke about Him and He fulfilled what they said about Him, John 5:39;  Luke 24:27.

The Way to Life and the way to death have been defined, Deuteronomy 30:15.

In the Way of Righteousness is Life, And in its pathway there is no death.” Proverbs 12:28

Close to 2,000 Hebrew Documents Have Been Discovered with theseVowel Markers.

Up until January 2018, the pronunciation of YHVH was debatable.  I grew up hearing; Yahweh and Jehovah and more recently; Yahuwah, Yahowah and Yahavah.  Why do people keep trying so hard to find the correct pronunciation of these four Sacred Hebrew letters?

“YHVH” Was Replaced by “LORD”

YHVH is written in the Hebrew Scriptures 6,830 times.  As people learn their English translations have replaced YHVH with LORD, they naturally want the Name restored.  But why was it removed?

Jewish Rabbi’s have made it a point to keep the pronunciation of these four sacred letters a secret.  This ancient Babylonian superstition, of not pronouncing God’s Name, was picked up during Judah’s 70 year Babylonian captivity, 586-516 B.C.  See #5:

This tradition directly opposes YHVH’s clear Instructions to Make His Name Known.

Hebrew Researcher, Nehemia Gordon’s discovered Hebrew documents with these vowel markers.  These four Hebrew letters, referred to as the tetragrammaton, are pronounced “Y’hovah,” roughly meaning “He Is, He Was, He Always Will Be.”

Still Attached to Your Own Pronunciation?

Before we had evidence of these documents I was the first to say, it doesn’t matter how we pronounce the Name, as long as we know the meaning.  I personally pronounced The Name, Yod Hay Vav Hay.

Knowing “Yahweh” was invented in 1786, and the other pronunciations were also mere guesses, I’m ready to pronounce the Name as Y’hovah.

Heinrich Friedrich Wilhelm Gesenius (3 February 1786 – 23 October 1842) was a German orientalistLutheran, and Biblical critic.[1] He is credited, among other things, with the reconstructed pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton, “Yahweh”.[2]

May this newly discovered evidence unite us all in the Name of the One True God.
