How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(email@example.com) for the full details.
P.S. There were apparently some false messiahs who appeared shortly before Jesus finally came because those who read the prophets knew a messiah was to appear within the 70 weeks prophecy in Daniel and it was getting close to the time. Simeon in Luke also had been told that he would not die before seeing the Messiah.
Luke 2: 25Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. 26It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.
Verses about other false messiahs pre-Yahushua-Jesus in Acts:
5:34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;
5:35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.
5:36 For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.
5:37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.
5:38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:
5:39 But if it be of Elohim, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against Elohim.
I always thought he was saying that these false people would say they were the Messiah-Christ and these verses allow for that interpretation:
24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the Messiah, or there; believe it not.
24:24 For there shall arise false messiahs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Mark 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is the Messiah; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
13:22 For false Messiahs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
Around 20 years ago, there were already around 5000 people in California claiming to be the messiah or the 2nd coming and I had a friend who once witnessed 2 guys getting into a heated argument because they were both claiming to be jesus at some communal campfire.
Someone once said they believed that it was just that the false people would first start out saying they also believed Jesus was the Christ and then go on from there to deceive people once they had got their confidence.
Correct, I do not believe that but the answer is so involved. I do believe in a greater and lesser YHWH who both are YHWH Elohim, but I see at least a duality all though they are one YHWH, one essence.
