False Prophets















Everybody’s Fool

Perfect by nature
Icons of self-indulgence
Just what we all need
More lies about a world that never was and never will be
Have you no shame?
Don’t you see me?
You know you’ve got everybody fooled

Look, here she comes now
Bow down and stare in wonder
Oh, how we love you
No flaws when you’re pretending

But now I know she never was and never will be
You don’t know how you’ve betrayed me
And somehow you’ve got everybody fooled

Without the mask
Where will you hide?
Cant’ find yourself
Lost in your lies

I know the truth now
I know who you are
And I don’t love you anymore

When you listen closely to false prophets you will realize that they’re not interested in your worshipping God as much as they’re interested in you worshipping them, as if they’re the only direct available line to God. They direct all prayers, all scripture readings and most certainly all scripture interpretations. Forget what you’ve always believed about God’s laws and commandments. The false prophet will tell you that they and only they know the truth about what God intended and what He has in store, which is why they are worthy of your slavish obedience. According to their convenient prophecies, which they claim just happen to come from God, following even their most insane orders is your only hope for salvation.

To make sure that no one can possibly talk you any sense into you or point out their inevitable contradictions, false prophets will almost always start isolating you from your friends, family, coworkers, and everyone else who knows and cares about you. Often with carefully selected out-of-context scripture quotations, they will portray anyone who criticizes them or questions their motives as being evil. It’s a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black and a truly godless act to make you choose between one person and all these other people who’ve always loved you and wanted the best for you. But the only way the false prophet can take hold is in a vacuum where no other information but the prophet’s is allowed inside.

Many false prophets will also find countless ways to separate you from your money at every possible opportunity. On the grandest scale, they’ll demand that their followers take a vow of poverty and give up all their worldly possessions, invariable to the prophet themselves, because let’s face it; God has no use for money. The psychology is simple: not only are most false prophets in it for the money, the power, or both, but they also know the less their followers have, the needier, more dependant, and less self-confident they’ll be.

False prophets tend to make up their own rules for their own behavior at their own narcissistic whim, having nothing to do with God’s rules whatsoever, but then cite a message from God as their excuse when the need arises, as if God bends the rules sometimes for their personal convenience. False prophets have used the message from God excuse for everything from adultery to murder to mass suicide, telling us nothing about God and everything about how low false prophets will really stoop in their obsessive need for power and determination to extinguish the true light of the loving, uniting, pacifistic God who created us.

You’ll never hear a false prophet admit to the possibility of being wrong. Their prophecies will tend to be so vague that they could apply to almost anything, or they will claim that any that appear to be inaccurate are the fault of the interpreter. And anyone who accuses them of doing something wrong, or God forbid, illegal, is tragically, unfairly persecuting them, giving them the opportunity to be both felons and martyrs. Matthew 7:15 states, “Beware of false prophets.” Be clear of who they are and what they are after. Here are some of the indications that will help you spot a false prophet.

• Any prophet who feels that your adoration should be equally divided between them and God is a false prophet.

• Any prophet, who claims to have a closer relationship with God than you do, or to be more special in His eyes than you, is a false prophet.

• Any prophet who claims that you need him/her to communicate with God is a false prophet.

• Any prophet who insists that you embrace the prophet’s thoughts and opinions rather than forming your own is a false prophet.

• Any prophet, whose power demands that you isolate yourself from those who have loved, supported, and been honest with you is a false prophet.

• Any prophet who asks that you jeopardize or sacrifice your stability or your financial security, especially in the form or a “donation” to the prophet or his or her “church”, or whatever the organization is called is a false prophet.

• Any prophet, who tells you that only they know what God has in store for you, your future, or for the future or humankind, is a false prophet.

• Any prophet who believes that anyone who criticizes or disagrees with him/her is evil or deserving of retribution is a false prophet.

• Any prophet whose only goal is accumulating adoring followers more for the prophet than for God is a false prophet.

• Any prophet who believes that he/she is exempt from the laws of God and society and is somehow in a position of divine immunity from consequence is a false prophet.

• Any prophet who claims to be infallible is a false prophet.

• Any prophet who financially gains from his/her gift without seeing to it that worthy causes and less fortunate are enriched as well by those financial gains is a false prophet. Selfish, ingratitude and any other form of arrogance, financial or otherwise, toward the very people the prophet is here to serve is a guarantee that either the God-given gift will vanish or that there was never a God-given gift to begin with.

To really understand the sincere genuinely gifted prophet, it makes all the difference in the world to really understand where the information comes from. The more mysterious, mystical, and exclusive a prophet’s source the more mysterious, mystical, and illusive the prophet is likely to seem. The far more interesting truth is that genuine prophets are simply tapping onto an infinite wealth of facts to which every one of us has had access since eternity began and will have access again when we’re back home with God.

Keishu definitely fits that bill...as does Okada. I think Mahikari got worse after she took over because she was so money driven.

I have to agree with Ash. The Okada's definitely fit most, if not all of these examples. That is why it is considered a cult in the US, but here we have a stupid law that says you are allowed to practice your religion as long as it doesn't physically harm someone...what the hell?!? What about mental harm?

Just found these posts. I took the basic course. $300 for info that you can get from Google. Most of it available in Santa Fe 101.
I don't believe that Keishu, Okada or Mao Mao for that matter have any more ability to power up a pendant than I do. I think the human brain is the real Omitama, used by the soul to focus energy.
At least the training helped me sort this out. I have more courage to give light, on my own, no reservations, but still with permission from the person receiving.
