19. They take care only of themselves and leave their followers to help themselves.
20. When dangers, troubles or enemy attacks come, these false teachers, false shepherds and false religious leaders run for their lives and leave their flocks unprotected; they do not and will not give their lives for the sheep.
Molkhi˙l YAOH┌SHUA said: 'I am the Fine Shepherd. The Fine Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. A hired man will run when he sees a wolf coming and will leave the sheep, for they aren't his and he isn't their shepherd. And so the wolf leaps on them and scatters the flock. The hired man runs because he is hired and has no real concern for the sheep.' - Y┴OHU-khßnam (John) 10:11-13, Holy Scriptures.
21. They always want the best for themselves and allot the left-overs for their followers or disciples.
22. They rule it over the flock, like earthly kings, instead of being the servant-leaders of all. They slap and mistreat their subjects or followers.
'Again I plead, don't think that I have lost my wits to talk like this; but even if you do, listen to me anyway while I also boast a little as they (false teachers) do. Such bragging isn't something Y┴OHU UL commanded me to do, for I am acting like a brainless fool. Yet those other men keep telling you how wonderful they are, so here I go. You think you are so wise - yet you listen gladly to those fools; you don't mind at all when they make you their slaves and take everything you have, and take advantage of you, and put on airs, and slap you in the face. I'm ashamed to say that I'm not bold and daring like them!' - 2 Corinthians 11:16-21a
23. They encourage and compliment those who do evil instead of turning them back from their sins. Yarmi-Y┴OHU 23.
24. They fill people with futile hopes and make up everything they say; they do not represent Y┴OHU UL at all.
25. They say 'Don't pray to idols,' but they make money their idol in replacement.
'Son of dust, your people are whispering behind your back. They talk about you in their houses and whisper about you at the doors, saying, 'Come on, let's have some fun! Let's go hear him tell us what the Creator is saying!'
So they come as though they are sincere and sit before you listening. But they have no intention of doing what I tell them to; they talk very sweetly about loving the Creator, but with their hearts they are loving their money. You are very entertaining to them, like someone who sings lovely songs with a beautiful voice or plays well on an instrument. They hear what you say but don't pay any attention to it! But when all these terrible things happen to them - as they will - then they will know a true prophet has been among them.
Son of dust, prophesy against the shepherds, the leaders of Yaoshor˙l, and say to them: Y┴OHU UL says to you: Woe to the shepherds who feed themselves and not their flocks. Should not shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the best food and wear the finest clothes, but you let your flocks starve. You haven't taken care of the weak nor tended the sick nor bound up the broken bones nor gone looking for those who have wandered away and are lost.
On the contrary, you have ruled them with force and cruelty. So they were scattered, without a shepherd. They have become a prey to every animal that comes along. My sheep wandered through the mountains and hills and over the face of the earth, and there was no one to search for them, or care about them.
Therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of Y┴OHU UL: As I live, says Y┴OHU UL, you abandoned My flock, leaving them to be attacked and destroyed, and you were no real shepherds at all, for you didn't search for them. You fed yourselves and let them starve; therefore I am against the shepherds, and I will hold them responsible for what has happened to My flock. I will take away their right to feed the flock - and take away their right to eat. I will save My flock from being taken for their food.
For Y┴OHU UL says: I will search and find My sheep. I will be like a shepherd looking for his flock. I will find My sheep and rescue them from all the places they were scattered in that dark and cloudy day. And I will bring them back from among the people and nations where they were, back home to their own land of Yaoshor˙l, and I will feed them upon the mountains of Yaoshor˙l and by the rivers where the land is fertile and fine.
'Yes, I will give them fine meadows on the high hills of Yaoshor˙l. They will lie down in peace and feed in rich mountain meadows. I Myself will be the Shepherd of My sheep, and cause them to lie down in peace, Y┴OHU UL says. I will seek My lost sheep, those who deviated away, and bring them safely home again. I will put splints and bandages upon their broken limbs and heal the sick. And I will ruin the powerful, fat shepherds; I will feed them, yes - feed them punishment!'
And as for you, O My flock - My people - Y┴OHU UL says, I will judge you and separate the upright from the bad, sheep from goats.
Is it a small thing to you, O evil shepherd, that you not only keep the best of the meadows for yourselves, but trample down the rest? That you take the best water for yourselves, and muddy the rest with your feet? All that is left for My flock is what you've trampled down; all they have to drink is water that you've fouled.
Therefore Y┴OHU UL says: I will surely judge between these fat shepherds and their scrawny sheep. For these shepherds push and butt and crowd My sick and hungry flock until they're scattered far away. So I Myself will save My flock; no more will they be picked on and destroyed. And I will notice which is plump and which is thin, and why!
'I will make a peace agreement with them, and drive away the dangerous animals from the land so that My people can safely camp in the wildest places and sleep safely in the woods. I will make My people and their homes around My hill a blessing. And there shall be showers, showers of blessing, for I will not shut off the rains but send them in their due times.
Their fruit trees and fields will yield bumper crops, and everyone will live in safety. When I have broken off their chains of slavery and delivered them from those who profiteered at their expense, they shall know I am Y┴OHU UL.
No more will other nations conquer them nor wild animals attack. They shall live in safety and no one shall make them afraid.
And I will raise up a notable Vine [the Messiah YAOH┌SHUA] in Yaoshor˙l so that My people will never again go hungry nor be shamed by heathen conquest. In this way they will know that I, Y┴OHU UL their Creator, am with them, and that they, the people Yaoshor˙l, are My people, says Y┴OHU UL. 'You are My flock, the sheep of My meadow. You are My people and I am your Creator,' so says Y┴OHU UL.' - Kozoqiul (Ezekiel) 33:30-34:31, Holy Scriptures.
26. They make predictions or use divinations by the power of ha-satan, and not by the Spirit of Y┴OHU UL.
'Don't act like the people who make horoscopes and try to read their fate and future in the stars! Don't be frightened by predictions such as theirs, for it is all a pack of lies. Their ways are futile and foolish. They cut down a tree and carve an idol, and decorate it with gold and silver and fasten it securely in place with hammer and nails, so that it won't fall over, and there stands their idol like a helpless scarecrow in a garden!' - Yarmi-Y┴OHU 10:2-5, Holy Scriptures.
27. They usually harp on their own visions and dreams, then proclaim that they were from the Creator.
Y┴OHU UL declared:
'The prophets are telling lies purportedly in My Name. I didn't send them or tell them to speak or give them any message. They prophesy of visions and revelations they have never seen nor heard; they speak foolishness concocted out of their own lying hearts.
Therefore, Y┴OHU UL says, I will punish these lying prophets who have spoken in My Name though I did not send them, who say no war shall come nor famine. By war and famine they themselves shall die!
And the people to whom they prophesy - their bodies shall be thrown out into the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and war; there shall be no one to bury them. Husbands, wives, sons and daughters - all will be gone. For I will pour out terrible punishment upon them for their sins.' - Yarmi-Y┴OHU (Yarmi-Y┴OHU) 14:14-16, Holy Scriptures.
28. They are dishonest and adulterous.
'My heart is broken for the false prophets, full of deceit. I awake with fear and stagger as a drunkard does from wine, because of the awful fate awaiting them, for Y┴OHU UL has decreed holy word of judgment against them.
For the land is full of adultery and the curse of Y┴OHU UL is on it. The land itself is mourning - the pastures are dried up - for the prophets do evil and their power is used wrongly. And the priests are like the prophets, all unholy, wicked men. I have seen their despicable acts right here in My own Temple,' says Y┴OHU UL.
Therefore their paths will be dark and treacherous trails, and fall. For I will bring evil upon them and see to it, when their time has come, that they pay their penalty in full for all their sins.
'I knew the prophets of Samaria were unbelievably evil, for they prophesied by Baal and led My people Yaoshor˙l into sin; but the prophets of Jerusalem are even worse! The things they do is horrible, they commit adultery and love dishonesty. They encourage and compliment those who are doing evil, instead of turning them back from their sins. These prophets are as thoroughly depraved as the men of Sodom and Gomorrah were.
'Therefore, Y┴OHU UL says: 'I will feed them with bitterness and give them poison to drink. For it is because of them that wickedness fills this land. This is My warning to My people,' says Y┴OHU UL. Don't listen to these false prophets when they prophesy to you, filling you with futile hopes. They are making up everything they say. They do not speak for Me! They keep saying to these rebels who despise Me: 'Don't worry! All is well'; and to those who live the way they want to, 'The Almighty has said you shall have peace!'
But can you name even one of these prophets who lives close enough to Y┴OHU UL to hear what He is saying? Has even one of them cared enough to listen? See, Y┴OHU UL is sending a furious whirlwind to sweep away these wicked men. The terrible anger of Y┴OHU UL will not abate until it has carried out the full penalty He decrees against them. Later, when Jerusalem has fallen, you will see what I mean.
I have not sent these prophets, yet they claim to speak for Me; I gave them no message, yet they say their words are Mine. If they were Mine, they would try to turn My people from their evil ways. Am I a Creator Who is only in one place and cannot see what they are doing? Can anyone hide from Me? Am I not everywhere in all of heaven and earth?
'Listen to the dream I had from the Almighty last night,' they say. And then they proceed to lie in My behalf. How long will this continue? If they are 'prophets,' they are prophets of deceit, inventing everything they say. By telling these false dreams they are trying to get My people to forget Me in the same way as their fathers did, who turned away to the idols of Baal.
Let these false prophets tell their dreams and let My true representatives faithfully proclaim My every word. There is a difference between chaff and wheat! Does not My word burn like fire? - asks Y┴OHU UL. Is it not like a mighty hammer that smashed the rock to pieces? So I am against these false prophets who say, 'This message is from the Almighty!' Their made-up dreams are flagrant lies that lead My people into sin. I did not send them and they have no message at all for My people, says Y┴OHU UL.
When one of the people or one of their so-called prophets or priests asks you, 'Well, Yarmi-Y┴OHU (Yarmi-Y┴OHU), what is the sad message from the Almighty today?' you shall reply, 'What sad message? You are the sad message, for Y┴OHU UL has cast you away!' And as for the false prophets and priests and people who joke about 'today's sad message from the Almighty,' I will punish them and their families for saying this. You can ask one another, 'What is Y┴OHU UL's message? What is He saying?' But stop using this term, 'Almighty's sad message.'
'For what is really sad is you and your lying. You twist My words and inventing 'Messages from the Almighty' that I didn't speak.' - Yarmi-Y┴OHU (Yarmi-Y┴OHU) 23:9-36, Holy Scriptures.
29. They give importance to false prophecies and then mocks the true prophets of Y┴OHU UL, though they pretend to really love His words.
30. They hate justice but loves unfairness.
'Do not listen to your false prophets, fortune-tellers, dreamers, mediums and magicians.... for they are all liars!' - Yarmi-Y┴OHU (Yarmi-Y┴OHU) 27:9-10, Holy Scriptures.
'The ancient prophets who preceded you and me spoke against many nations, always warning of war, famine and plague. So a prophet who foretells peace has the burden of proof on him to prove that Y┴OHU UL has really sent him.' - Yarmi-Y┴OHU (Jeremiah) 28:8-9, Holy Scriptures.
Y┴OHU UL declared: 'Warn them that Y┴OHU UL says: Repent and obliterate your idols, and stop worshiping them in your hearts. I Y┴OHU UL will personally punish everyone whether people of Yaoshor˙l or the foreigners living among you, who rejects Me for idols, and then comes to a prophet to ask for My help and advice.
I will turn upon him and make a terrible example of him, ruining him; and you shall know I am Y┴OHU UL. And if one of these false prophets gives him a message anyway, it is a lie. His prophecy will not come true, and I will be against that so-called prophet and destroy him from among My people Yaoshor˙l.
False prophets and hypocrites - evil people who say they want My words - all will be punished for their sins, so that the people of Yaoshor˙l will learn not to desert Me and not be polluted any longer with sin, but to be My people and I their Creator. So says Y┴OHU UL.' - Kozoqi˙l (Ezekiel) 14:6-11, Holy Scriptures.
'Woe to you who lie awake at night, plotting wickedness; you rise at dawn to carry out your schemes; because you can, you do. You want a certain piece of land, or someone else's house (though it is all he has); you take it by fraud, threats and violence.
But Y┴OHU UL says: I will reward your evil with evil; nothing can stop Me; never again will you be proud and haughty after I am through with you. Then your enemies will taunt you and mock your dirge of despair: 'We are finished, ruined. Y┴OHU UL has confiscated our land and set us far away, and given what is our's to others.' Others will set your boundaries then. 'The People of Y┴OHU UL' will live where they are sent.
'Don't say such things,' the people say. 'Don't harp on things like that. It's disgraceful, that sort of talk. Such evils surely will not come our way.'
Is that the right reply for you to make, O House of Jacob? Do you think the Spirit of Y┴OHU UL like to talk to you so roughly? No! His clear threats are for your own benefit, to get you on the right path again.
Yet to this very hour My people rise against Me. For you rob the shirts right off the backs of those who trusted you, who walk in peace. You have driven out the widows from their homes, and deprived their children of every Y┴OHU UL-given right. Up! Begone! This is no more your land and home, for you have filled it with sin and it will vomit you out!
'I will preach to you the joys of wine and drink' - that is the kind of drunken, lying prophet that you like!
The time will come, O Yaoshor˙l, when I will gather you - all that are left - and bring you together again like sheep in a fold, like a flock in a pasture - a noisy, happy crowd. The Messiah will lead you out of exile and bring you through the gates of your cities of captivity, back to your own land. Your King will go before you - Y┴OHU UL leads on!
Listen, you leaders of Yaoshor˙l - you are supposed to know right from wrong, yet you are the very ones who hate virtue and love evil; you skin My people and divest them to the bone. You devour them, flog them, break their bones, and chop them up like meat for the cooking pot - and then you plead with Y┴OHU UL for His help in times of trouble! Do you really expect Him to listen? He will look the other way! You false prophets! You who lead His people into error! You who cry 'Peace' to those who give you food, and threaten those who will not pay!
This is Y┴OHU UL's message to you: The night will close about you and cut off all your visions; darkness will cover you, with never a word from Y┴OHU UL. The sun will go down upon you, and your day will end. Then at last you will cover your faces in shame, and admit that your messages were not from Y┴OHU UL.
But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of Y┴OHU UL, fearlessly announcing Y┴OHU UL's punishment on Yaoshor˙l for her sins.
Listen to me, you leaders of Yaoshor˙l who hate justice and love unfairness, and fill Jerusalem with murder and sin of every kind - you leaders who take bribes, you priests and prophets who won't preach and prophesy until you're paid. (And yet you fawn upon the Creator and say, 'All is well - the Almighty is here among us. No harm can come to us.')'
It is because of you that Jerusalem will be plowed like a field, and become a heap of rubble; the mountaintop where the Temple is will be overgrown with brush.
But in the last days, Mount Zion will be the most-renowned of all the mountains of the world, praised by all nations, people from all over the world will make pilgrimages there!
'Come,' they will say to one another, 'let us visit the mountain of Y┴OHU UL, and see the Temple of the Holy One of Yaoshor˙l; He will tell us what to do, and we will do it.' For in those days the whole world will be ruled by Y┴OHU UL from Jerusalem! He will issue His laws and announce His decrees from there!
Y┴OHU UL will arbitrate among the nations, and dictate to powerful nations far away. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning-hooks; nations shall no longer fight each other, for all war will end! There will be universal peace, and all the military academies and training camps will be closed down.
Everyone will live quietly in his own home in peace and prosperity, for there will be nothing to fear. Y┴OHU UL Himself has promised this. Therefore we will obey Y┴OHU UL our Creator forever and ever, even though all the nations around us worship idols!' - Micah 2:1-4:5, Holy Scriptures.
31. They will forbid marriages and the eating of meat, while telling lies with straight faces; their consciences are seared.
'But the 'R┌KHA-YAOH┌SHUA' tells us clearly that in the last times some in the Congregation will turn away from the Messiah and become eager followers of teachers with devil-inspired ideas. These teachers will tell lies with straight faces and do it too often that their consciences won't even bother them. They will say it is wrong to be married and wrong to eat meat, even though Y┴OHU UL gave these things to well-taught Yaohushuahim (believers in YAOH┌SHUA) to enjoy and be thankful for.' - 1 Y┴OHU-tßm (Timothy) 4:1-3, Holy Scriptures.
32. They fight the truth, have dirty and warped minds.
'You may as well know this too, Y┴OHU-tßm, that in the last days it is going to be very difficult to be a Yaohushuahee (believer in YAOH┌SHUA). For people will love only themselves and their money; they will be proud and boastful, smirking at Y┴OHU UL, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful to them, and thoroughly bad.
They will be hardheaded and never give in to others; they will be continual liars and troublemakers and will think nothing of immorality. They will be rough and cruel, and smirk at those who try to be upright. They will betray their friends, they will be hotheaded, puffed up with pride, and prefer having FUN than worshiping Y┴OHU UL. They will go attend the Congregation, yes, but they won't really believe anything they hear. Don't be taken in by people like that!
They are the kind who craftily sneak into other people's homes and make friendships with silly, sin-burdened women and teach them their new doctrines. Women of that kind are forever following new teachers, but they never understand the truth. And these teachers fight truth just as Jannes and Jambres fought against Moses. They have dirty minds, warped and twisted, and have turned against the true faith in the Messiah YAOH┌SHUA.
But they won't get away with all this forever. Some day their deceit will be well known to everyone....' - 2 Y┴OHU-tßm (Timothy) 3:1-9, Holy Scriptures.
33. They teach lawlessness and emphasize human rights and freedoms, ignoring Y┴OHU UL's moral laws, every man's responsibility and accountability to Y┴OHU UL and the impending judgments of the rebellious. They are also worldly, greedy and full of lust for the evil things of this world. They preach freedom and liberty yet they themselves are obese and are gluttons (whose idols are relishing foods and their own stomachs).
'Dearly loved friends, I had been planning to write you some thoughts about the salvation Y┴OHU UL has given us, but now I find I must write of something else instead, urging you to stoutly defend the truth which Y┴OHU UL gave, once for all, to His people to keep without change through the years. I say this because some unholy teachers have wormed their way in among you, saying that after we become Yaohushuahim (believers in YAOH┌SHUA) we can do just as we like without fear of Y┴OHU UL's punishment. The fate of such people was written long ago, for they have turned against our only Ruler and Governor, YAOH┌SHUA hol-MEHUSHKH┴Y.
My answer to them is: Remember this fact - which you know already - that Y┴OHU UL saved a whole nation of people out of the land of Egypt, and then killed every one of them who did not trust and obey Him. And I remind you of those angels who were once pure and holy, but turned to a life of sin. Now Y┴OHU UL has them chained up in prisons of darkness, waiting for the Judgment Day. And don't forget the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, all full of lust of every kind including lust of men for other men. Those cities were ruined by fire and continue to be a warning to us that there is a hell in which sinners are punished.
Yet these false teachers carelessly go right on living their evil, immoral lives, degrading their bodies and LAUGHING at those in authority over them, even scoffing at the Glorious Ones. Yet, Micha-Ul, one of the mightiest of the angels, when he was arguing with ha-satan about the body of Moses, did not dare to accuse even ha-satan, or jeer at him, but simply said, 'YAOHU UL rebuke you.' But these men mock and curse at anything they do not understand, and, like animals, they do whatever they feel like, thereby ruining their souls.
When these false teachers join you at the love feasts of the Congregation, they are evil smears among you, LAUGHING and carrying on, gorging and stuffing themselves without a thought for others. They are like clouds blowing over dry land without giving rain, promising much, but producing nothing. They are like fruit trees without any fruit at picking time. They are not only dead, but doubly dead, for they have been pulled out, roots and all, to be burned!
All they leave behind them is shame and disgrace like the dirty foam left along the beach by the wild waves. They wander around looking as bright as stars, but ahead of them is the everlasting gloom and darkness that Y┴OHU UL has prepared for them.
Kanokh (Enoch) who lived seven generations after Adam, knew about these men and said this about them: 'See, Y┴OHU UL is coming with millions of His holy ones. He will bring the people of the world before Him in judgment, to receive just punishment, and to prove the terrible things they have done in rebellion against Y┴OHU UL, revealing all they have said against Him. These men are continual gripers, never satisfied, doing whatever evil they feel like, they are loudmouthed 'show-offs,' and when they show respect for others, it is only to get something from them in return.
Dear friends, remember what the emissaries of our Molkhi˙l YAOH┌SHUA the Messiah told you, that in the last times there would come these scoffers whose whole purpose in life is to enjoy themselves in every evil way imaginable. They exacerbate arguments; they lust for the evil things of this world; they do not have the 'R┌KHA-YAOH┌SHUA' living in them.
But you, dear friends, must build up your lives ever more firmly upon the foundation of our holy faith, learning to pray in the power and energy of the 'R┌KHA-YAOH┌SHUA' - YAOH┌-dah (Jude) 1:3-20, Holy Scriptures.
34. In their lust for power and control, they refuse to submit to higher authorities and prevent others from doing so.
'I am glad when you send them on their way with a generous gift. For they are traveling for Y┴OHU UL, and take neither food, clothing, shelter nor money from those who are not Yaohushuahim, even though they have preached to them. So we ourselves should take care of them in order that we may become partners with them in Y┴OHU UL's work.
I sent a brief letter to the Congregation about this, but proud Diotrephes, who loves to push himself forward as the leader among the believers there, does not admit my authority over him and refuses to listen to me. When I come I will tell you some of the things he is doing and what wicked things he is saying about me and what insulting language he is using. He not only refuses to welcome the emissary travelers himself, but tells others not to, and when they do, he tries to put them out of the Congregation.
Dear friends, don't let this bad example influence you. Follow only what is right. Remember that those who do what is right prove that they are Y┴OHU UL's children; and those who continue in evil prove that they are far from Y┴OHU UL' - 3 Y┴OHU-khßnam (John) 1:5-11, Holy Scriptures.
35. The wisdom that they show forth is inspired by ha-satan and not the wisdom that is from Y┴OHU UL.
'If you are wise, live a life of continual rectitude, so only upright deeds will pour forth. And if you don't brag about them, then you will be truly wise! And by all means don't brag about being wise and upright if you are bitter and jealous and selfish; that is the worst sort of lie. For jealousy and selfishness are not Y┴OHU UL's kind of wisdom. Such kinds are earthly, unspiritual, inspired by ha-satan. For wherever there is jealousy or selfish ambition, there will be confusion and every other kind of evil.
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous. It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others; it is full of mercy and virtuous deeds. It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace a reap a harvest of pleasantness.' - Y┴OHU-cßf (James) 3:13-18, Holy Scriptures.
36. Their organizational logos, emblems, banners or symbols have wicked occult objects and symbols in them, serving as warnings to those who have eyes which can see, and also serve as traps to the unwary.
For clear explanations on the definitions and practical examples of occults objects and symbols, please read the guideline: 'YAOH┌SHUA - The Healer and Exorcist' soonest. This surely is a highly-revealing, though surprising, file that will open your spiritual eyes to the telltale signs and emblems of the enemy, thereby avoiding their hidden (occult) traps and lures.
37. By their fruit you shall recognize them. Not by the deceptive signs and wonders which they exhibit. You shall know them by their fruit.
'A tree from a fine stock doesn't produce scrub fruit nor do trees from poor stock produce choice fruit. A tree is identified by the kind of fruit it bears. Figs never grow on thorns, or grapes on bramble bushes. An upright man produces virtuous deeds from a pure heart. And an evil man produces wicked deeds from his hidden wickedness. Whatever is in the heart overflows into speech,' said Molkhi˙l YAOH┌SHUA in Luke 6:43-45, Holy Scriptures.
'But the fruit of the 'R┌KHA-YAOH┌SHUA' is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, uprightness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.' - Galatians 5:22-23, Holy Scriptures.
38. They love to sleep.
