False Prophets Shall Arise

When the steam powered printing press was invented in 1843, false teaching and false prophets were given the one thing that they needed to deceive the Body of Christ. It made their profane theology available to the average person, and their books crept into seminaries everywhere. It spread corruption far and wide, to every part of the earth.

Before the printing press, Christians only had the Bible to rely upon – with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It was too difficult and expensive for ill-conceived commentary to get very far. And now, with the Internet, corrupt ideas spread at the speed of light.

False Prophets Shall Arise

A friend of mine mentioned to me once, that I was a Biblicist. And, I was confused by that, since I thought that all Christians should be devout followers of what the Bible actually says. But, the more I talked with fellow believers, the more surprised I was that devotion to the words of God was so rare.

How is it possible to follow Christ, and not be devoted to the words of the Bible?

I am truly amazed at this, and it took me a while to see how our current situation came to be. And, it started with the steam-powered printing press. More specifically it was the steam powered rotary printing press, invented by Richard March Hoe in 1843.

That press allowed writers to print books faster and cheaper than ever before. It made printing less labor-intensive, and cheaper books gave the average person the chance to read what the writers were writing. And, it’s little wonder that some of the biggest religious movements had their origins around that time.

In fact, let me throw out a few.

Religious Movements

All of the following religious movements have their roots in the 1800s:

  • Dispensationalism
  • Charismatic Movement
  • Seventh Day Adventism
  • Jehovah’s Witnesses
  • Christian Science
  • The Bahai
  • Landmarkism
  • Reform and Conservative Judaism
  • New Apostolic Church
  • Secular Zionism
  • Salvation Army
  • Ordo Templi Orientis
  • Plymouth Brethren
  • Mormonism
  • Millerism
  • Christian Israelite Church
  • Modern Theosophy

THAT is just the stuff that I could think of off the top of my head. Some of the above is pure heresy – others, less so. Some may not be heretical at all. In fact, I can personally attest to the fact that more than one of those is NOT heretical (although, maybe somewhat foolish).

Take the Jehovah’s Witnesses. That group rose out of the 1870s. There’s no way that they could have had ANY HOPE of success without the industrial printing press.

And, most of you know that I have a ‘bone to pick’ with Dispensationalism. THAT heresy would have been impossible without technological innovation in the printing industry.

It Didn’t Need To Be This Way

The thing that gets me is that all of this heresy was just so unnecessary. All that we needed to do, to fight off these heretical ideas is to stick to the Bible. And, I am shocked at how reluctant people are to just read their Bibles.

That is literally all that you need to do, to fight off the false teachers and false prophets. Just. Read. Your. Bible.

Why is this so hard?

Well Actually, It Did

But, Jesus said that this would happen:

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

 – Matthew 24:11

Jesus knew that this was going to happen, so there’s no way around what we are experiencing now. In fact, it will get worse. Much worse.

So, my prescription to you is to get rid of your commentaries and read you Bible. Read all of it. From Genesis to Revelation. And, do it in a year. Every year.

I have been reading my Bible through for decades, and it has been an immense blessing. In fact, it rescued me from a lot of error. And, I want YOU to be rescued from an errors that you might have.

In the dark days ahead, we will need to be guided by the Holy Spirit, if we are to have ANY hope of survival. But, how are you going to be guided by the Holy Spirit, if you aren’t reading the precious words of God?

Please. Commit to reading your Bible. Commit to reading all of it.

Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.

And yes, these are pretty serious.

Only two thirds of Generation Z identify as ‘exclusively heterosexual’

Romans 1 talks about the insanity that arises when the people of God turn away from God. It’s the kind of sin that destroys the mind and the fabric of society. And now, we have reached the point where one third of our young people identify as homosexual or bisexual.

This is insane, and the roots of this insanity lie with the corruption in our churches. Back in the 1800s, the people of God turned to lies and fables, so it is no wonder that two hundred years later, we have this.

We have sinned, so the world has gone insane.

Romans 1:21-32 KJV – Because that, when they knew God, they – Bible Gateway

When I wrote my article last week about how we have all become insane…

We are ALL Insane

…Bondo left a comment that was both cogent and chilling.

He said this:

Great article Brother John!

we cannot emphasize enough the insanity taking over. I think it goes hand in hand with the loss of morality. I believe it is some sort of negative psychic feedback loop caused by constantly going against your own conscience and God’s spirit. Spiritual dissonance.

The statement about the Taiwanese girls now ‘sleeping around’ made me sad. You and I are the same age and we have certainly seen the world change.

They had a ‘great moral debate’ one night in the juvenile hall- what is worse, stealing money or selling drugs?

To cut to the chase because the debate was insane- stealing money was worse. Because selling drugs is a pseudo ‘job’ and we are told in the Bible not to steal.

Does that signify hope or insanity?

Beware false prophets!


For years, Bondo has left great comments on Omega Shock, and I try to encourage such commenters to launch their own websites and share their wisdom with a broader audience.

I doubt that I’m the only one to encourage him to do this, so I won’t take any credit for him stepping out in faith and writing about what is on his heart.

You can find Bondo’s website, here:


I’ve also added his site to Omega Shock’s blogroll, as well as the much smaller list of sites that deserve special mention. When Omega Shock goes down, those sites will be ready and willing to pick up where I leave off.

My sincere hope is that someone else will come along and outshine Omega Shock so much that my perspective will no longer be needed. I cannot overstate how much I look forward to that day.

But, think again about what Bondo said in his comment.

we cannot emphasize enough the insanity taking over. I think it goes hand in hand with the loss of morality. I believe it is some sort of negative psychic feedback loop caused by constantly going against your own conscience and God’s spirit. Spiritual dissonance. ]]

Spiritual dissonance?

Now THAT is a great phrase. In fact, I might steal that from Bondo one day and use it as a title for an article.

However, the Apostle Paul got to this idea first, in Romans 1. In fact, I will quote the key part, here:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Romans 1:21-32

Please understand that Paul is NOT talking about those who are ‘unsaved’. He’s talking about those who KNOW THE TRUTH.

In verse 18, Paul speaks about those that he is talking about:

…who hold the truth in unrighteousness…

And, this passage also condemns our current age. In verse 22 (above) it says:

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

And, you see all of this reflected in the downward spiral of our society. Because our pastors chose to follow and preach lies, our society descended into the abyss. They chose commentaries instead of the leadership of the Holy Spirit. They exalted themselves at their seminaries, instead of taking up the humble task of reading and meditating on the Bible. They sought to be called Dr. This or Dr. That, instead of the humilty of a mere servant of God.

If you want to know why a third of our young people are homosexual or bisexual, THAT is the reason. We turned from God, so God has turned from us. And, as bad as it is now… it will get worse.

Do you remember what Paul wrote in Thesalonians 2?

Well let me mention that below…

2 Thessalonians 2:6-12 KJV – And now ye know what withholdeth that – Bible Gateway

Here is the passage:

6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

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.

– 2 Thessalonians 2:6-12

Those last three verses speak eloquently of so many of our churches. We have lost our love of the truth. We no longer have ANY tolerance for the truth. None.

So, God is sending strong delusions into our churches. And, those delusions have their roots in the 1800s, when false prophets and false teachers captivated people with their fables. And, they used the printing press to spread their lies to the farthest ends of the Earth.

And now, we reap the bitter harvest of their efforts.

2 Thessalonians 2, speaks of a Great Falling Away that must come before the Antichrist is revealed. Well, I believe that we are seeing that falling away happen right before our eyes.

And, as Bondo always says, when he signs off on his comments:

Beware false prophets!


• Chart: The Institutions Americans Trust Most And Least | Statista

If you want to know WHY I believe that a military takeover will eventually be used to ‘solve’ the rampant corruption in the US government, this chart says it all.

Here are just a few of the ratings, for trust:

The military: 74%

The police: 54%

The presidency: 37%

The criminal justice system: 22%

TV news: 20%

– and then… –

Congress: 11%

Please understand that a military takeover of the US government will not solve the problem. It will just replace one batch of scoundrels with another. But, people will rejoice that the dirtbags in Washington D.C. will be taken down.

Little do people know that the corruption within the military is just as bad as the corruption within the US government.

But, we will still feel good to see the vile and evil politicians pay for their corruption. We will at least have that. For a short time.

Would the Founding Fathers Recognize Modern America?

The answer is…

Yes, they WOULD recognize America, but only because they read about it in Gibbon’s Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire.

They tried to create something that would avoid the same traps that caused Rome to fall, and they failed. Of course, they knew HOW it would fail, and one of those ‘Founding Fathers’ of the United States of America said as much.

His name was John Adams, and he was the second president of the US. Here is what he said:

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

– John Adams

America stopped being a moral and religious people. And so, America has fallen.

If you want to know why I lay the responsibility for America’s fall at the doorstep of the church… that is why. You don’t need to look any further than this quote by John Adams.

We did it to ourselves, kids.

We did it to ourselves.

By the way, this is an excellent, well-written article that you will enjoy reading. Such good writing is hard to find these days, so I celebrate a little, every time that I find such good examples.


I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.Proverbs 22:3

24 thoughts on “False Prophets Shall Arise”

    • Wow. ANP FINALLY LEFT-JUSTIFIED THEIR TEXT!!! I’ve been so annoyed with them for not doing that, for years. But, I absolutely agree. Satan’s minions fear a praying Christian! And, there are lots of those minions, here in Taiwan. (And in SF!) Thanks, Mike. – JL

  1. Pacification!! Having ones ears tickled, when righteous anger should have boiled up and driven them from the TEMPLE!! Well he is the Preacher, he just finished seminary! (cemetary). Putting the blame on the Preacher is not going to save us from the consequences of not defending the TRUTH!! If we do not exhort the brethren to confront false teaching, are we not partakers?? Enablers! It still makes me want to HURL, every time I hear one of GOD’S children say, “Oh we don’t JUDGE here” (RALPH). It is like no one will stand up to this. I am ready to shout I will!! It can only go two ways. Boy, I am glad I ain’t carrying that one, or MAN you oughta be glad you you ain’t carrying these!! “Are you going to HEAVEN, that one ain’t up to me, but I can tell you “If you haven’t confessed and forsook your sins would be like thin ice, continue at your Peril”.

    Verse 31 has the 3 harshest words that represent the time we live in. “Without Natural Affection!! Lack of love and empathy for children, the aged, infirm, is everywhere. People are lovers of themselves these days, and have no concept of what real sacrificial love is.
    They lack fear of judgement. Guilt doesn’t even get a chance to soak in, when it comes to their hypocrisy. The overwhelming sadness when we hear how some people treating their own children is beyond unbearable.

  2. Oh yeah, the US has agreed to go along with UN disarmament, but it never mentioned which illegitimate sons of curs were there or put their names on it.
    Iran says Israel is stealing the clouds!! I mentioned once that when the chemtrail hoax blows up blaming ISRAEL could be part of some tin-foil hat type plan. With deception, the possibilities abound. Remember the whole world is a stage, and major players have a central bank, and like talking to Kissinger

  3. Oh, Oh, Jeep is introducing a new one, and they call it tank, is compatible with humvee armor and bulletproof glass optional, my congressmen need TWO. ONLY 178,000!! Do you think with social unrest we taxpayers should buy more armored limos??

  4. Something else I read this week Bush averaged like 34 bombs during his regime, Little “o” upped the figure by ten or 15, and Trump is averaging 121, per day, week whatever it was. I had this all in my head until I started texting. Sigh!!

  5. Brother John
    One of my favorite topics indeed. You have alerted us to many false prophets and false doctrines through the years. The internet is the printing press exponential. A wonderful tool for spreading Truth. A terrible weapon for an epidemic of lies.
    I wanted to thank you for your tireless efforts in bringing Truth to us all. I am honored and humbled to be mentioned in your resources. I will try not to discredit that endorsement. I want you to know that your encouragement to your readers is what indeed got me to share my experiences and testimony.
    I would like to see many more of your readers start their own sites as well. I would love to hear much more from many of the sincere folks who comment after every wonderful Omegashock article. I look forward to these contributions every week.
    Beware false prophets!

  6. Hi Brother John,

    It’s been a while since I commented, but rest assured I still follow your work on a weekly basis.

    There’s something I’ve been meaning to ask you. But this installment is the perfect time since you talk about false prophets.

    There is a growing number of Christians who say “Paul was a false prophet.” I have never heard of this until recently.

    I would love to hear your feedback as always.

    God Bless.

    • Hi Joel the Filipino,

      Long time no see!

      Yes, I’ve been seeing this growing attempt to discredit Paul. However, if you call Paul a ‘false prophet’, you will also need to call Peter a ‘false prophet’, since Peter claims Paul to be someone that Christians MUST LISTEN TO.

      Here’s the verse:

      And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

      – 2 Peter 3:15

      And then, Peter goes on to describe – in the next two verses – some of the heretics that we are seeing today:

      16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

      17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

      – 2 Peter 3:16-17

      How utterly ironic.

      These false christians dare to call Paul a ‘false prophet’?

      Why do they even bother to call themselves Christian?

      So no, the Bible is clear that Paul is NOT a false prophet. It is those who condemn Paul… THEY are the false prophets. And, I suspect that I know why.

      Paul speaks against women being pastors.

      So, you’ll find a lot of charismatics standing against Paul. And, I’ve met a few of those.

      I hope that helps, Joel. I’m glad to see you in the comment section. We enjoy your contributions.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Oh, man..

        That makes perfect sense!

        Thanks so much, Brother John!

        You truly are a Blessing. I love how you have enlightened me in so many areas throughout these years of me following your work.

        You do awesome work because you follow our Awesome God to the “TEE.”

        • Hi Joel the Filipino,

          When you said…

          “There is a growing number of Christians who say “Paul was a false prophet.” I have never heard of this until recently.”

          …it did not occur to me to think of the ‘Hebrew Roots Movement’. But, I did some searching afterwards and came up with an appalling number of websites that were attempting to delete Paul from the Bible.

          I am astounded by this. In fact, I can hardly believe it.

          How DARE they do this!

          I stand amazed at the evil in the hearts of those who claim to be followers of Christ. For them to try and erase whole sections from the Bible… is a true abomination.

          Wow. You got my attention with your comment, Joel. You really did. Thank you, brother!

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

  7. A glimmer of good news, a spark of light, a small justice accomplished !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nurse Wubbels got a $500,000 settlement after that preposterous dragging-out-and-getting-arrested for …….. doing her job bravely and with utmost dignity and professionalism.

    I cannot wait, cannot WAIT, CANNOT WAIT until Our Lord Jesus Christ is on His throne back here on earth and judging all with perfect justice.

    • Hi DRG,

      Wow. That is awesome! I remember that, and I’m glad for this outcome. It means that the police will be more careful in the future.

      As for your desire to see Jesus on the throne, I have been reflecting on that a lot. And, I also cannot wait for this. We are in desperate need of someone to govern this world in truth, justice and even compassion. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered.

      When the Millennium comes, there will be no corruption in government. No police officer will haul off a nurse for doing her job. And, the criminals will get their just reward.

      And EVERYONE will be too afraid to break the law, because the consequences will be too severe – and, just.

      I’ve been wondering how that would work, and I have my suspicions. But, however it happens, there will be justice and peace, when Jesus returns to take His rightful place on the throne!

      Thank you for that comment, DRG. Welcome news and wonderful thoughts!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
