I don’t know what his name is. He never gave it. And isn’t what I doing now exposing him?
I'm not trying to be mean to you but rather just stating what the Bible says. Since you don't know his name there's I would not say you are actually "exposing" him. I watched some of the video and tried to figure out who it was but no can do. I kind of suspect he may be a "word of faith" teacher or preacher, but who knows. :eek:

IN GOD THE SON,

I tend to not listen to individuals that claim to be a channel directly to God and receive visions, divine words and such. However, I have taken issue with a certain YouTuber that claims to be such. His videos focus solely on Christ “Imminent” return. From seeing visions of Jesus to receiving supposed messages that he reads at the end of each video, he has cumulated a following of about 35 thousand subscribers. Most of the comments in the threads seem to believe he really is a Prophet. I have called him out on a few occasions and he has stated to me that if I don’t believe him I don’t believe in the Lord. I just wanted to be see other Believers opinions on this matter are. Should I just stop rebuking him or should I continue to call him out as self appointed Soothsayer so others might realize he promoting false teachings? I certainly pray for him and his followers.
Traditionally such people are A) fakes milking money and/or power out of people,or B) legitimately believe it (whether true or not)
So fakes are not going to confess and lose their income. Those who believe are not going to stop believing they are special (which let's face it, anyone claiming to be a prophet in modern times also lifts themselves up in the process).
So it's good to say something, but continuing is a pearls before swine thing to me.

Anyone who believes Jesus, Yeshua, is in the Lord. No one is required to believe me when I share miracles with them, but I do hope the y believe Jesus first and foremost alwayss. I tend to believe all who come here with recountings of their miraculous experiences in the Lord, but always Jesus, Yeshua first and foremost. We are to believe all things beautiful.

You cannot bting brethren to the person to rebuke his tales, so, dtreat him as a non-believerr. This is not a sin, just being cautious in the Lord. The Lord knows who is His, but you know this already. God bless you always.

You being up a very good point. Even the Apostle Paul spoke of this. Christ is preached. God can bring those to repentance whom do not know him via this guys so called ministry. I have no doubt that God can use that and bring people actually read his word. On the other hand a fake Christ is also being preached which could give these people a false idea of who the Messiah really is.

"Many are looking for 'answers', and will tend to follow what they can see and hear,
giving a false well being of God with their doubtful reasoning. 'Miracle water' being a prime
example of foolishness, perpetrated by materialistic greed and for self-acclaim."
