False Prophets and Failed Prophecy

False Prophets and Failed Prophecy

A closer look at False Prophets and False Prophecy and Failed Prophecy in connection with End Times, The End of the World, The Apocalypse, Armageddon and whatever else you want to call it. This article could also be titled "The Twelve Gates, is it a load of Hogwash or is there some truth in what appears on the website and social media?" It´s a delve into the world of false prophets but also an attack on this website and yes by myself, where it will be put through the proverbial blender and see what comes out the other end. Could be interesting?

Some words from the owner of this website on False Prophets based on my personal travels on the Net

It´s one of those tongue in cheek with very serious undertones, style of article. It´s a look at why there is this morbid fascination with the "End of the World" since the beginning of time. You know the ones Nostradamus, The Mayan Prophecies etc etc. This article is not concerned with those predictions but will look more at the so called Christian False Prophets. Many people have called themselves Prophets who have seriously cashed in on their predictions either online or via writing Best selling Books and have become overnight stars on TV, online and in religious circles. You could say Prophecy and End of the World predictions are becoming a big money "Industry" in their own right especially in this day and age. No names will be mentioned here unless they are mentioned in a video which I have no control over the content but they will be implied. After reading this article hopefully you will be able to discern between a true and false prophet. Something that in all honesty can only be done if you truly have "The Holy Spirit" and the gift of "discernment" that gives you.

Prophetic Techniques?
This video below gives you a superb demonstration and idea how False Prophets work using Divination, Astrology, Planetary Movements, New Age and Pagan techniques and theories from past predictions. Sometimes they are spot on, sometimes they are miles off, sometimes they are half right, half wrong, a bit like reading your Horoscope really in the daily paper or online. Numerology features strongly in these prophetic predictions the "think of a number, divide it by X multiply by Y and then add it to the number you first thought of and add it to a certain date divided by a certain number of lunar cycles", that sort of prediction. Again sometimes deadly accurate but mostly widely off. Sometimes historical patterns or Cycles such as "The Shemitah" are used and again these can be indicative of something to come but the accuracy as in dates and magnitude are questionable but the Shemitah is certainly one of the more reliable methods of prophetic prediction as has been proven throughout history. September 2015 was undeniably a time when many things were converging and from that date to now the world has seen chaotic times,it remains to be seen what happens on the Anniversary of the Shemitah whether the disasters predicted will actually happen on the dates and magnitude predicted.

All these techniques have one thing in common, they are not coming from a "True Prophet"and certainly not from God...............the predictions are coming from somewhere else and not The Father! A "True Prophet" will know what is coming by looking forward and seeing and getting that word from the Father, something nobody else would ever know, not by looking backwards for patterns, looking at the planets or using a mathematical cracking code formula.

So putting this website The Twelve Gates under the microscope is it a False Prophecy money making making machine? Let´s take a look.
1. It has no donation link (you can look but you will not find one)
2. It doesn´t ask for money, doesn´t want any money.
3. It certainly hasn´t been writing books and has no plans at present to do so.
4. The founder/owner will not be appearing on TV Shows or online interviews
5. The website is a not for profit entity that simply relays what is going on in the world.
6. It is not run by a prophet, a watchman, Evangelist, Priest or Vicar. It is simply run by a "Born Again" or "Saved" Christian that has no fancy title or letters in front or behind his name
7. The Twelve Gates simply sees things that most people may not see or are too busy to look for in the first place, and relays that via this website or via Social Media. That´s it.

The focus here is on False Prophets rather than False Preachers (Teachers). See the article on False Preachers and Mega Churches to delve into that world, it is an eye opener.

So what is the difference between False Prophets distinct from False Preachers. They can be split by these simple definitions below:

A False Preacher (Teacher). Normally the terms ‘false teaching’ and ‘false’ are used to refer to teaching that is contrary to what the Bible teaches and are commonly known as Heresy. The teaching is normally used for evil intent.

A False Prophet: In religion, a false prophet is one who falsely claims the gift of prophecy or divine inspiration from God, or who uses that gift for evil ends. Often, someone who is considered a "true prophet" by some people is simultaneously considered a "false prophet" by others, even within the same religion as the "prophet" in question.

How False Prophets Work
False Prophets are not a new phenomenom and were around back in the day in Biblical times and in large numbers and Jesus warned of them many times and they were also mentioned in the Old Testament.. Today history is repeating itself and many new False Prophets are appearing predicting and claiming all sorts of calamities will hit the world, normally biblically based such as Massive Meteors hitting earth, some form of Armageddon or Apocalypse, Global Economic disaster or Financial collapse, major pandemic, Martian Invasion, Mega Tsunami, Jacobs troubles, Rapture, you name it, or a combination of some or all of these things along with other exotic disaster scenarios. Some people that have gone down this route were either mentally unhinged to start with or ended up that way at the finish.

However, if you pump this message out frequently enough and convincingly enough, you sound and look credible, market it in a media savvy and slick and professional way and get a big enough following, eventually you´ll create a fairy tale that goes hey presto viral. This would propel it from the realm of fiction into fact. This creates a huge market and said Prophet becomes a superstar. Such a market would be created for a potential book or similar that could reach sales in the millions with TV appearances being the follow on result and you guessed it things then go mega viral. If the average price of a book is say £10 or $15 and you sell a million.............you get the picture. Even half that amount is a tidy sum. Of course, the Book is always released before the event, way way before the event.

An Analysis of September 23 2015 Prophecy What will happen? Published August 26 2015

The Problem
Now here´s the problem, and false prophets know this, and play on this in a big way. When you put yourself in a position of knowing something (fairy tale or otherwise) that nobody else knows, especially when it comes to "The End of the World" as we know it, you have an unfair advantage over the masses. If you can convince people and they believe you, the word will spread like wildfire due to the fear factor and eventually you have a massive and captive audience. This situation can be dragged on for quite some period of time, like years with the dates just moving forward every year. Say an End of the World prediction is made like many were around September/October 2015 (although many seeds were sown in Sept 2015 that are sprouting nowin 2016 ) the latest I´ve seen was July 29 2016. If those prophecies fail (they almost do) these false prophets will vanish with their millions in hard cash never to be seen again.

OR, even worse, will just say the dates have been "divinely moved" or things have been "delayed" due to some unforeseen factors in the Cosmos, a certain sighting didn´t happen which means it will happen on the same date by the year XXXX on the next YYYY cycle or anniversary, or any other convincing excuse they can think of. 10% of the wiser audience will pack their things and take a hike in rapid fashion thinking "what a mug I was to believe that hogwash" and realise they have been conned. BUT guess what, 90% of the audience will still hang in there thinking they are onto something, and also bizarrely just like sheep, because 90% of the people still follow this False Prophet....he must be right..............right?

Where do False Prophets get their Prophecies from.
False Prophets get their ideas from the bizarre and totally unbelievable, right up to the incredibly normal and ultra believable and convincing. They may have seen something that nobody else has seen (sketchy proof), they may have had a vision (again how do you prove it) or they have experienced some form of divine intervention or telephone call like connection from the Lord himself. Mostly it has been obtained by Divination, think tea leaves in a teacup, tarot cards or a variation thereof and you get the idea. Divination is not of God. Numerology and Bible Codes will be another route, something that most people don´t understand but they do?. Again what is the source...Good or Evil?

It really doesn´t matter, the ultimate objective is the same, they are out to create a market of believers, fleece them of their money, if the prophecy fails, just invent a convincing excuse and fleece your following even more.............and people fall for this stuff "hook line and sinker". If you´ve ever seen those street gamblers with 3 cups and something is underneath one of them, you always win and guess right the first time....right, but then you lose and potentially lose big afterwards. The trick is to walk away on the first win. Try that and see what happens. False Prophets are no different and if you´ve spotted one, just walk away.

So how can you tell a False Prophet?
A false prophet in short, you can´t tell if they are a false prophet unlike a false preacher (teacher) which you can tell in a short period of time (from a sermon length at least). With a false prophet if something is predicted to happen on X day of X year, the only way you will know (unless you have the Holy Spirit) is when that date arrives and nothing happens. People may be thinking well everybody makes mistakes what if they get the next prediction right? Here´s the trick to spotting them, there are absolutely no second chances..NONE. IF a prediction is made by a Prophet (true or false) which does not come to pass, then that Prophet (true or false) is plain and simply not a Prophet. Sometimes a prophecy may come half true, but it was just a milder version of what they predicted but on the same date. Doesn´t make the slightest difference, what that Prophet says will come to pass at that MAGNITUDE and on that EXACT DATE and TIME means the Prophecy was fulfilled...............anything else is just a false prophecy from a false prophet. One strike and you are out. Here´s another thing to create even more confusion. Just because a so called Prophets prophecy comes to pass, doesn´t mean he is a true Prophet, he may have got lucky, second prophecy fails then you know he is a false prophet. Now you can see how difficult it is without the gift of discernment.


So what is a true prophet (the real deal)
A true Prophet of God will have had some sort of true divine intervention from the Father or will have had some sign or vision and more importantly is able to interpret that sign or vision which results in a spine tingling prophecy of such accuracy right down to the MAGNITUDE, TIME and DATE that the event will take place. If that prophecy occurs at that time and date and at that magnitude, that prophet is in touch with "The Lord" via The Holy Spirit. If the prophecy has been fulfilled then that Prophet is a true Prophet of God. Anything else is a false prophet.

HereĊ› the final thing, IF a prophet makes a number of true prophecies and then one fails, he is no longer a true Prophet but has become a False Prophet for whatever that reason may be. In summary if a Prophet is getting word from God, that word will be 100% accurate and not disputed and that prophecy will come to pass. If the word is coming from somewhere else, the results will never have the 100% accuracy, (they may get lucky a once or twice) but then it will become a failed or false prophecy.

In these End Times as Jesus said their will be many false teachers and false prophets. Both are as dangerous as each other, but false prophets are ultimately harder to fathom as you have to wait until the prophecy is fulfilled or not to get confirmation. Only by testing of the spirits can you fathom these "wolves in sheep´s clothing" before the event, something that can only be done if you truly have the Holy Spirit. The only other give away is their prophecy is surrounded by confusion and changes tack slightly to fall in line with what is actually happening rather than what they predicted.

What about The Twelve Gates. Is it a False Prophecy website?
The Twelve Gates website and associated social media, is not a money focused entity, it´s about prophecy being fulfilled in our modern times as mentioned in the Bible especially the Book of Revelation by St John the Divine. It´s merely a watchdog (as opposed to watchman) for tell tale signs either in The Cosmos, Society, War, Economics, Politics and Government, Disease, Technology and Science, Extreme Weather and Natural Disasters and other factors that will come to play in the End Times as mentioned in the Bible. That´s not prophecy, it´s merely looking for signs that are fulfilling prophecy (not mine) and raising awareness of such signs. Also you may notice no dates, times or magnitudes are given. I could say, that based on a certain Jewish Cycle the American Financial Markets will collapse on October 2nd 2016. I could say that, but I don´t as I have no other basis to confirm that this is definetly going to happen but I will raise awareness of that fact nearer the time. I could also say that the current US Election coming up in November 2016 and the players involved could be a major pivotal point in US history and if X beats Y it could result in World War III. Again, I could say that, but I don´t, as I have no other basis to confirm that this is definitely going to happen, but will again raise awareness of that fact nearer the time. People are blatantly aware of this fact anyway.

The only prophecy I can give is this. The Twelve Gates website was set up on a very strong desire to tell the world and make people aware that something is coming. I know what is coming, you can see it forming in front of your very eyes around the world now...if you know where to look.........it´s fact...not fiction. It´s the "when" I don´t know. No one know´s....only God. Anybody else who tells you otherwise, is talking utter garbage and are after your money plain and simple or trying to lead you up a dark alleyway. What is known is mentioned in the Bible is simply this............ it will come "like a thief in the night" Think 1 Thessalonians 5:2 and 2 Peter 3:10
