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.

Thanks for your kind replies Frank and Kevin😀
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.
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
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.+Bklyn KevinParticipantMay 14, 2017 at 12:30 amPost count: 18
