I just wanted to point out that if a prophet does a miracle, he must preach only Written Torah and he can't contradict Written Torah in any way. If the prophet did a miracle but he tells you something other than the Written Torah - he is a false prophet !!!
I know that some people, particularly Christians, fall victims to charlatans and frauds because they do not know this simple rule!!!
For example, if a prophet does a miracle and says that you should not follow Written Torah because it was outdated/fulfilled e.t.c. - he is a FALSE PROPHET !!!
So please remember the Prophet Test. It is very simple! A miracle, Written Torah! If a prophet does not do these two things, he is a false prophet!!!
Also, it is always a good idea to ask a prophet which God send him. If he says anything other than Yahuah, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - he is definitely a false prophet. Stay away from him!
Let's re-read the Prophet Test in Deuteronomy:
YLT Dt 13:1 'When there ariseth in your midst a prophet, or a dreamer of a dream, and he hath given unto thee a sign or wonder,
YLT Dt 13:2 and the sign and the wonder hath come which he hath spoken of unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods (which thou hast not known), and serve them,
YLT Dt 13:3 thou dost not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or unto that dreamer of the dream, for Jehovah your God is trying you, to know whether ye are loving Jehovah your God with all your heart, and with all your soul;
YLT Dt 13:4 after Jehovah your God ye walk, and Him ye fear, and His commands ye keep, and to His voice ye hearken, and Him ye serve, and to Him ye cleave.
YLT Dt 13:5 'And that prophet, or that dreamer of the dream, is put to death, for he hath spoken apostasy against Jehovah your God (who is bringing you out of the land of Egypt, and hath ransomed you out of a house of servants), to drive you out of the way in which Jehovah thy God hath commanded thee to walk, and thou hast put away the evil thing from thy midst.
YLT Dt 18:15 'A prophet out of thy midst, out of thy brethren, like to me, doth Jehovah thy God raise up to thee--unto him ye hearken;
YLT Dt 18:16 according to all that thou didst ask from Jehovah thy God, in Horeb, in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not add to hear the voice of Jehovah my God, and this great fire let me not see any more, and I die not;
YLT Dt 18:17 and Jehovah saith unto me, They have done well that they have spoken;
YLT Dt 18:18 a prophet I raise up to them, out of the midst of their brethren, like to thee; and I have given my words in his mouth, and he hath spoken unto them all that which I command him;
YLT Dt 18:19 and it hath been--the man who doth not hearken unto My words which he doth speak in My name, I require it of him.
YLT Dt 18:20 'Only, the prophet who presumeth to speak a word in My name--that which I have not commanded him to speak--and who speaketh in the name of other gods--even that prophet hath died.
YLT Dt 18:21 'And when thou sayest in thy heart, How do we know the word which Jehovah hath not spoken?--
YLT Dt 18:22 that which the prophet speaketh in the name of Jehovah, and the thing is not, and cometh not--it is the word which Jehovah hath not spoken; in presumption hath the prophet spoken it;--thou art not afraid of him.
So, as you can see, it is very simple. Prophet MUST:
- Serve Yahuah only!
- Be able to show a sign or wonder!
- Preach only Written Torah and nothing else
If these 3 conditions are not fulfilled, it is a false prophet! Stay away from him and do not believe him!!!
This applies to both, Jews and Christians!!!
Be safe and trust only real prophets!!!
