Prophets and Heretics

#1.TRUE PROPHETS: Some in ancient days were true prophets, and many of them uttered prophecies that were recorded and became part of the canon of scripture. In those cases, most of the time in the scriptures themselves they were proven to be true prophets because #1.Some prophecies came to pass in their own generation, and #2.They directed worship to the one true God.

#2.HERETICS. If you are among believers in the true God, and change and preach false gods, like Baal or Molech, then you are indeed a heretic. If you never knew of God directly, that’s not “heretic”, that’s just “pagan”. But it’s false gods and evil spirits all the same.

One of the most repeated condemnations of worshippers of false gods in the Old Testament books is for the infant sacrifices to the fires of Molech. The priests built this big idol with fires inside its “belly”, and pulleys to hurl the babies into the fire.

Fase prophets sometimes made predictions that happened, but if they pointed to false gods, there was an eventual catastrophe waiting.
2 Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

#3.INSANITY: That’s what a lot of atheists would do with Joan of Arc today. In my opinion France as a nation would have had a much better history if they had respected her gifts. Actually the world would have been better off.

There are indeed also people who “hear voices”. Some of them actually may be too much tuned to spiritual matters, and there are some who have chemical imbalances.

The Bolsheviks and Stalinists certainly put plenty of Christians into asylums.

That reminds me of the “mad monk” image of Rasputin. I believe he was a man of God and a true prophet, womanizer or not. One of his prophecies was of his own death and the approximate time. But it looks like from the prophecy that there were two spiritual forces wanting to get rid of him.

He wrote a letter to the Tsar predicting his own murder before the end of the year. Apparently at the time there was a possibility it would come from the peasants, the poor, and he said if they were the ones to do it, the Czar and his family would rule another hundred years. (As in, at least).

But if it came to be from the royal family, then the Czar and his immediate family would not last more than two more years, and the whole royal family would be beset by all kinds of problems and there would be no more Russian nobility after 25 more years.

And that’s what happened. A prince invited him and gave him brownies that were soaking in enough poison to kill a team of horses, and there was absolutely no effect on him. Finally he shot him point blank and left, only to return and find himself suddenly with the monk’s hands around his throat. Finally fleeing again, he and the other conspirators got him crawling outside the palace, and pumped him full of bullets and beat him and tied him up. Then they threw him in the river.

The body was found later with the binding ropes loosened, and his hand across his own chest as if in benediction, and lungs full of water, indicating death by drowning. Two years later the royal family was dead, including the princess who was the later target of identity theft.
