    Hi Huldah:

    Could be one of the reasons he “cuts things short” to not allow Christ’s Bride to go through that evil transition all the way. If given enough time all true faiths will go bad while we are still Adam’s offspring.

    On first read it seems to me that the old prophet is a weed. He lives in Bethel which was controlled by a false worshiping King who like Saul was acting as a King and a Priest, which Jehovah did not approve of. The old prophet was not called a prophet of Jehovah, but just an old prophet. Lastly, he told the Man of God something that was directly contrary to what Jehovah had instructed him to his eventual demise. But I’m sure this account is full of symbolism’s that might even be applicable today. I will have to think about this more in the days to come. Thanks for reminding me of this account.

    “When and how did the unnamed prophet find the answer to this question?”

    To me, it seems the “how” could be answered “the hard way”, and the “when” would be “when it was too late”.

    Thanks for your kind replies Frank and Kevin๐Ÿ˜€

    Glad you got a chance to read about the old prophet, Frank.

    You are right lots of symbolism.
    I wonder if it is a “type” of the man of lawlessness even. Hmmmmm

    There was a drama at a DC 7 yrs or so ago on this account.
    Good point you made about him being in Bethel too.
    How profound.
    What’s scary is that Jehovah held the unnamed prophet accountable for believing the lies of the old prophet.

    I say a weed
    Maybe even a MOL
    Jude 3,4

    3 Beloved ones, although I was making every effort to write you about the salvation we hold in common,+ I found it necessary to write you to urge you to put up a hard fight for the faith+ that was once for all time delivered to the holy ones. 4 My reason is that certain men have slipped in among you who were long ago appointed to this judgment by the Scriptures; they are ungodly men who turn the undeserved kindness of our God into an excuse for brazen conduct*+ and who prove false to our only owner* and Lord, Jesus Christ.+

    I think I may have attended one more DC after disassociating. This account was done in a drama and I thought it was rather deep in meaning and difficult to untie the knots of the Holy Spirit then and still do now.
