2 Peter 2 – Beware of The False Prophets, They Will Be Judged.

Continuing from 2 Peter 1:21, “…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.”

The Apostle Peter states that there were false prophets among the people of old. Prophets that prophesied in the name of another god, such as the prophets of baal (1 Kings 18). Some who even prophesied in the Lord’s name to deceive and lead astray (Jeremiah 14:11-15). These prophets were with the people of old, and also among believers today.

Such false prophets, especially those who prophecy in the name of YAHUVEH “bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bough them,” they do these things privily. They mix lies with truth to confuse and lead the people astray. These false prophets speak evil of the truth, causing many to err and walk away from the truth.

The Apostle Peter is also warning YAHUVEH’s people to “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” 1 Peter 5:8. YAHUVEH’s people must know the Words of Their Father. As scriptures state: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:” Hosea 4:6. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15. We must have good understanding of the Word to discern truth from false.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 2 Peter 2:2

These false prophets and teachers whom the Bible is referring to, speak evil of the way of truth. Of what is Good and Holy they mock and speak against. The Spirit of YAHUVEH and the Flesh are always at War. These false prophets speak words to empower the flesh. Theirs is to lead away from the truth by mixing lies and truth. They speak to comfort and strengthen the flesh.

3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Such prophets are motivated by greed and fame. They twist words to make money from the Gospel of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. Their judgement will come soon, for judgement begins at the House of YAHUVEH. “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God.” 1 Peter 4:17.

Excerpt Amightywind Prophecy 92

Beware of people who make excuses for false prophets. A false prophet is a man or woman that gives a date, and a thus saith the Lord is spoken, and that date passes and what they prophesied does not come to pass. Some Prophets who have done this unknowingly must repent publicly and apologize since they spoke the word to the masses, through books, letters, the internet, or spoken word. They can be forgiven if they did not prophesy falsely for their own motivations. People, you are not helping them repent if you are making excuses for them. You will also be held accountable for doing this. People, you must discern whether it is prayer that delayed the prophetic message or whether it was a prophecy of the flesh. Prayer will delay MY judgments for a short time, but woe be unto the people when that delay has ended, it will be greater devastation than that which was prophesied.

God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment, Likewise, YAHUVEH destroyed the old world with a flood because of sin and iniquity (Genesis 6:12-13), Sodom and Gomorah were destroyed with fire and brimstone because of sin (Genesis 19:24).

9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Such false prophets who speak against truth, and sin willingly will be judged. Just as YAHUVEH delivered righteous Lot from evil and destruction, so will GOD deliver those who belong to Him when He judges the world.

10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

Arrogant humans beings, who walk to fulfill the lusts of the flesh and despise any kind of authority or rebuke – who speak against God and His Anointed. Angels who are far more powerful and mighty than man do not speak such evil against “presumptuous, selfwilled, unclean, lustful human beings”– most likely because man is created by, and in the image of YAHUVEH GOD. These evil men being spoken of in verse 10-12 blaspheme God, His Council, and Kingdom. Speaking foolishly against that which they know nothing about. They are as brute unreasoning animals who’s only use a is to be taken and destroyed.

They are those who act in public for fame, make noise and riot for the sake of fame.

We read first that prophecy came not by the will of man, but by Holy men of God spake as moved by the Holy Ghost. These false prophets and teachers are not holy: “14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:”

They do not ‘prophecy’ repentance and holiness, but rather words that empower the acts of the flesh (Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God Galatians 5:19-21). As scripture states, they beguile unstable souls, not those who know and are established in the Word of YAH.

Covetous practices: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet. Vs 15-16.

The prophet balaam, who is written of in Numbers 22. GOD told him to stay, he stayed, GOD told him to go and only speak the Words He would give him, so balaam went, “And God’s anger was kindled because he went”. Numbers 22:22. Why? Yet God was not Mad because he obeyed, His anger was kindled because balaam’s way was perverse (Numbers 22:32). His number one priority was not to follow the instructions of YAHUVEH, but to seek out “the wages of unrighteousness”. He went to curse the people of GOD and receive honor from the balak, king of Moab.

On his way to the king of Moab, a messenger of God (angel) stood in his way with His sword drawn.

And Balaam said unto the angel of the Lord, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

And the angel of the Lord said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak. Numbers 22:34-35.

True prophets are vessels that YAHUVEH God uses. They speak the words of GOD, Nothing else. balaam went to do God’s work with motives of his own, and GOD would have killed him if not for his donkey that spoke.

As written in 2 Peter 2:14, he was Covetous, he set out to prophecy for wealth or possession. When a true prophet does this they feign (fabricate) word, they make up, add, remove, edit the Word of YAHUVEH GOD. They prophecy the thing that others want to hear – why – because people won’t pay to be rebuked, but rather encouraged to live as they please.

3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Balaam was warned, and turned to do the will of YAHUVEH God, these false prophets are warned, knowing full well what they do yet continue in their covetous ways. They go astray, following and loving the wages of unrighteousness.

17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

They are wells, they look as if they contain living water. They look like true prophets, yet there is no Godliness within. They knew the way of righteousness yet departed from it, so as the angels who sinned with the daughters of man, darkness is reserved for them.

18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

They use ‘thus saith the lord’, they use scriptures to back up their claims, yet they strengthen and entice the works of the flesh, lust and fornication as examples. They seek those who are just escaping the filth of the world to deceive and lead astray. They don’t speak Holiness, the need to be Holy as YAHUVEH is Holy.

19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

From the outside they look like servants of GOD, they pray, preach, and fast for all to see. They preach YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH/Jesus Christ, yet they do not know him. All those who follow them are led back into the captivity of sin.

20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

21 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.

They once were true Holy men and women of GOD YAHUVEH. They where set apart from this world through the Gospel of YAHUSHUA, yet they followed their lust and have been once again entangled with the world.

22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

Learn the Word of YAHUVEH God, Be conformed into the Image of His Son YAHUSHUA. Be Holy, for YAHUVEH GOD is Holy. Every true prophet of YAH will speak to get closer to YAH, to separate from what displeases Him. GOD does not only bless and encourage, He warns and rebukes those who He loves.

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent” Revelation 3:19.
