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, He gave Moses an unchanging plume-line of Truth, in writing.

God’s Word Was, Is and Always Will Be, True.  A False speaker will Add their own words to God’s Word or Subtract God’s Words, by saying it is corrupt, abolished or old.  And beware, people will claim a different gospel, (good news) was given to them by an angel from God, Deuteronomy 4:2; 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 Was, Is and Always Will Be God’s Word.

My first understanding of the Bible was that Jesus gave us the New Testament and that made 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 referred to the Old Testament as being the Living, Spiritual, Word of God.   Hebrews 4:12; Acts 7:38; Romans 7:14

Their letters weren’t compiled into a book called the New Testament until 4 A.D.

So when noble people heard Speakers testifying about Y’shua, they searched God’s Word, (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.  Every prideful religious opinion I had was humbled as I realized there are no perfect translations.  Cultural bias and theology has tainted enough to create countless religious divisions out of One God, One Spirit and One Faithful Assembly.

Y’shua, (Jesus) did not add, subtract, abolish or change Torah in any way.  If our translations make it appear that He did, they need to be tested.  Y’shua is The Word of God, He is Torah, meaning, The Way, The Truth and The Life.  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 by God, Deuteronomy 30:15.

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

Don’t Be Deceived By False Prophets, Test Their Words to God’s Word
