Definition of False Teacher: One who presumes
to teach in the Name of the Lord when God has not sent him.
False Teacher - Scot
“Reveling in Their Deceptions”
While God’s servants
aren’t priggish, neither are they vulgar like the world. They
exemplify the right way, not the wrong one. “Let there be no
filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place,
but instead let there be thanksgiving” (Ephesians 5:4 ESV).
We received this note:
Subject: I think Profound Prophecy International is a cult
I recently stumbled into a group of Christians who learn the Hebrew
language and follow the old Hebrew ways in keeping their holidays. Sounded
good to me, except I had a big problem there.
I used to be pagan, and Christ our Lord woke me up in the middle of
a huge nightmare, many years ago now.
I continued to go to the pagan festivals for years to come, but I went
to do the will of Jesus, so that the few that could be saved from the
deception of paganism, would be.
After many years, of which finally Jesus called to never attend another
pagan festival, (which I am grateful for); some were saved and found
their ways back to Jesus.
I tried to explain what my path had been like, and I suppose, stupidly
explained the wrong things, and I was shunned by this group, immediately.
While I was there,
I felt weighed down and unable to think. I left with a message at the
blog, that I would have done it again, because it was
the will of Jesus that I did, and am certain of it…
I am writing this letter to you, so you are aware of them. They also
seem to have quite a bit of money, in the millions, which I was shocked
to learn about.
Just so you know. God Bless you in your work here, and God Bless you
in all that you do.
Thank you for the blessing and for the heads up on Profound Prophecy
International, led by Scot Dryer.
The material we view there is full of irrelevant information, confusion,
lightness, sheer foolishness, and even crudity and vulgarity.
“And they gave him seventy pieces of silver out of the house of
Baal-berith, with which Abimelech hired worthless and reckless persons
who followed him” (Judges 9:4 MKJV).
“And certain foolish and good-for-nothing men were joined with
him, and made themselves strong against Rehoboam, the son of Solomon,
when he was young and untested and not able to keep them back” (2
Chronicles 13:7 BBE).
A good example of Scot’s defiling spirit, but not the only one
by any means, is:
It’s almost as though Scot and Suzanne Dryer mock people and laugh
at their susceptibility to heed nonsense, mixing in some “serious” knowledge
that isn’t of value for the walk of faith in Christ. They are mocking
God, unaware of their own natural state. Peter and Jude describe them
2 Peter 2:12-16 ESV
(12) But these, like irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born
to be caught and destroyed, blaspheming about matters of which they
are ignorant, will also be destroyed in their destruction,
(13) suffering wrong as the wage for their wrongdoing. They count it
pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are blots and blemishes, reveling
in their deceptions while they feast with you.
(14) They have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin. They entice
unsteady souls. They have hearts trained in greed. Accursed children!
(15) Forsaking the right way, they have gone astray. They have followed
the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved gain from wrongdoing,
(16) but was rebuked for his own transgression; a speechless donkey spoke
with human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.
Jude 1:10-13 ESV
(10) But these people blaspheme all that they do not understand, and
they are destroyed by all that they, like unreasoning animals, understand
(11) Woe to them! For they walked in the way of Cain and abandoned themselves
for the sake of gain to Balaam’s error and perished in Korah’s
(12) These are blemishes on your love feasts, as they feast with you
without fear, looking after themselves; waterless clouds, swept along
by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted;
(13) wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering
stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever.
I expect Dryer thinks himself to be spiritual, knowledgeable in the
things of God, and called of God to teach and minister. However, he’s
gravely mistaken and will have to answer for his presumption and blasphemy.
For sound teaching on matters where Dryer errs, see:

Hebrew Names for God
And as with others preoccupied with interpreting “end times” prophecy,
Scott is wrong in trying to identify the “man of sin” as
a specific individual, because the man of sin is within everyone, as
reflected by this title and writing: Luther’s Legacy – Unleashing
the Man of Sin.
Back to you, Barbara…
We’d like to know where those people you rescued from those groups
are at now. How are they? With whom are they affiliated or fellowshipping
in the Lord?
Thanks for your letter and the Lord grant you grace and peace in doing
