In Deuteronomy 13, God describes this false prophet as a member
of the Jewish people (v. 2, 7) who would tell true prophecies and would have the
power of miracles. God Himself would give this false prophet the power to perform
miracles and reveal prophecy, but the false prophet would try to seduce the people
away from G-d's Law and towards strange gods unknown to Judaism. The purpose would
be to test whether we are truly committed to living under the Law, or whether we
will be dazzled and fall for the temptation to join a false path to salvation (v.
3-6, 7-8, 11). In this Biblical passage, God repeatedly commands the Jews to kill
this false prophet, lest the evil spread and destroy many souls.
To be accepted by the people, the false prophet would sometimes pretend to be a
righteous Jew who fulfills the Law, but at key moments he would turn against
certain details of the Law in order to make the breach (v. 6, 7). This is the
reason that verse 1 commands us not to add or subtract any details from the Law,
and verse 5 warns us to remain steadfast with all the traditions of the Law.
In Deuteronomy 17, this false prophet is also described as someone who would rebel
against the authority of the judges of the Jewish people, and who should be put to
death for his rebelliousness (v. 8-13, esp. v. 12). Who are the judges? The
highest court in Israel was the Sanhedrin, which was established by Moses (Exodus
18:13-26; Numbers 11:16-29), and which lasted more than 15 centuries. The members
of the Sanhedrin were the rabbis known as "Pharisees" (Pirushim, "those with the
explanation"). G-d gave permanent authority to these judges to interpret the Law
and G-d's Word, and it is a commandment to follow their decisions without turning
even slightly to the right or the left (Deut. 17:11). But the false prophet would
challenge the authority of the Sanhedrin, thus revealing himself to be an evil
In the book of the prophet Daniel, this false prophet is described as a king (the
eleventh horn on a terrible beast) who would wage war against the Jews (the "holy
ones"; see Deut. 14:2 on this term) and would change the Law including the
calendar and the holidays (Daniel 7:8, 20-25). Elsewhere, this false prophet is
described as a king who would disregard the G-d of his fathers, exalting himself
as a god and giving honor to this new god-head (Daniel 11:36-39).
The man known today as "Jesus" fulfilled all these prophecies. He became a "king"
(over the Christian church) who changed the original Law, doing away with the
Hebrew calendar and the Biblical holidays (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkos the
Festival of Tabernacles, Passover, etc.). He disregarded the one, infinite G-d of
the Hebrew Bible in favor of a new "trinity" that included himself. And he
repeatedly broke the Law by committing terrible sins, while openly challenging the
G-d-given authority of the rabbis of the Sanhedrin.
Naturally, Jesus did sometimes pretend to respect the Law, but whenever he thought
he could get away with it, he turned right around and broke that same Law. In
Matthew 5:17-19, he declared that he came to fulfill the Law, and in Matthew 23:1-
3 he defended the authority of the rabbis. But the rest of the time, he rebelled
against the Law—thus showing that his occasional words of piety were meant only to
hide his evil agenda. The following sins of Jesus are recorded in the "New
Jesus repudiated the laws of kosher food (Mark 7:18-19). [Compare this to the
prophet Daniel's strict adherence to kashrus, in Daniel chapter 1.]
He repudiated the laws of honoring one's parents, and called on his followers to
hate their parents; he also dishonored his own mother (Matthew 10:34-36; Matthew
12:46-50; Luke 14:26).
He violated the Sabbath by picking grain, and incited his disciples to do the same
(Matthew 12:1-8; Mark 2:23-26).
4) He again violated the Sabbath by healing a man's arm, which was not a matter of
saving a life, and he openly defied the rabbis in his total repudiation of the
Sabbath (Matthew 12:9-13; Mark 3:1-5). [Compare this to G-d's view of violating
the Sabbath, in Numbers 15:32-36, Nehemiah 10:30-32, and dozens of other places
throughout the Bible.]
Jesus brazenly defied and disobeyed the rabbis of the Sanhedrin, repudiating their
authority (This is recorded in many places throughout the New Testament, but look
especially at Matthew 23:13-39 and John 8:44-45).
The Talmud (Babylonian edition) records other sins of "Jesus the Nazarene":
He and his disciples practiced sorcery and black magic, led Jews astray into
idolatry, and were sponsored by foreign, gentile powers for the purpose of
subverting Jewish worship (Sanhedrin 43a).
He was sexually immoral, worshipped statues of stone (a brick is mentioned), was
cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness, and refused to repent
(Sanhedrin 107b; Sotah 47a).
He learned witchcraft in Egypt and, to perform miracles, used procedures that
involved cutting his flesh—which is also explicitly banned in the Bible (Shabbos
The false, rebellious message of Jesus has been thoroughly rejected by the vast
majority of the Jewish people, as G-d commanded. Unfortunately, however, this same
message has brought a terrible darkness upon the world; today, over 1.5 billion
gentiles believe in Jesus. These lost souls mistakenly think they have found
salvation in Jesus; tragically, they are in for a rude awakening. Truth and
eternal life are found directly from G-d, through performing His Law. Any
"mediator" only separates man from G-d:
"G-d is not a man, who can lie, nor the son of man, who relents... He has not
beheld iniquity in Jacob, nor has He seen perverseness in Israel" (Numbers 23:19).
Speaking prophetically of the Christian church, Moses declared, "For their 'rock'
is not like our Rock... Where is their god, in whom they trusted?" (Deut. 32:31,
"'See now that I, only I, am He, and there is no god with Me. I kill, and I bring
to life; I wound, and I heal, and there is none who can rescue from My Hand...'
Sing songs of joy, gentiles, with His people, for He will avenge the blood of His
servants, and will take vengeance on His enemies, and will forgive His land and
His people" (Deut. 32:39, 43).
"I, only I am Hashem (the L-rd), and besides Me there is no savior" (Isaiah
"I am the First and I am the Last; besides me there is no god... Is there a god
besides Me? There is no rock; I do not know any" (Isaiah 44:6).
"Israel is saved in Hashem with an eternal salvation... Assemble yourselves and
come, come near together, you gentiles who have escaped [the judgment]. (They have
no knowledge, those who carry wooden sculptures and who pray to a god that does
not save.) Announce and bring near, even take counsel together: Who declared this
from ancient times, and announced it from then? Is it not I, Hashem? And there are
no other gods beside Me, nor any righteous and saving god other than Me. Turn to
Me and be saved, all ends of the earth, for I am God and there is none else. By
Myself I swore, a righteous word went out of my mouth and it will not be
withdrawn, that to Me every knee will bow and every tongue will swear" (Isaiah
What is the true key to salvation? Those who return to the Law (the Seven
Commandments for the Children of Noah, according to the eternal covenant made with
Noah in Genesis 9) and who assist the Jewish people (Isaiah 60, 61, 66) will be
saved and will participate in the miracles and revelations, including worshippingin the Third Temple, under the kingship of the Messiah. As described in many
places, including Jeremiah 16:19-21 and Zechariah 8:20-23, all the old gentile
religions of the world will disappear, and their followers will turn to the Jews
for spiritual leadership. Until then, Christians are spiritually blinded, and
cannot yet understand G-d's wisdom in the Bible.
Ours is the last generation of the era of sin and evil and the first of the
Messianic Era. Indeed, for the first time in history, there is a growing consensus
of leading rabbis willing to name the man most suited to be the Messiah, and they
are agreeing that he is the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
The Rebbe is the spiritual leader of our generation, having boldly stirred up
controversy over vital issues in which other leaders have remained tragically
silent or have even caved in to the growing forces of darkness. He has upheld the
Law perfectly and has worked mightily to strengthen the observance of the Law by
Jews, as well as the observance of the Noachide Law by gentiles. Through his
teaching of chasidus (Jewish mystical teachings, preserved from Moses and Mount
Sinai), he has taught the world that G-d is One, the Infinite Who renews creation
at every moment. The Rebbe is a direct descendant of King David and has received a
true prophecy from G-d that we who are alive in this generation shall be the first
in history to see the coming of the true messiah. Many Jews are eagerly
anticipating the Rebbe's resurrection from the grave, ready to re-establish the
Sanhedrin and anoint the king.
Our job is to finish preparing the way, by announcing the truth and bringing all
of mankind back to the Law immediately. Through our divinely mandated efforts, we
shall now clear the path for the return of the Garden of Eden and the
establishment of the eternal sinless world promised by Isaiah and the other

Yes but my point is it says in the Bible that the antichrist would heal people and commit miracles and bring people back from the dead.
