Who is a prophet of the One True G-d? A fortune teller? A soothsayer? One who sees tomorrow’s events today?
A rock star? A devastatingly clever pundit? A charismatic player with idolatry in his heart?
A prophet of the One True G-d of Israel is trained and disciplined, dedicated and devoted, a speaker of G-d’s will exclusively, of one heart with G-d.
Beware the false prophet. G-d is testing you!
Re’eh (Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17)
