If you claim to be a prophet,
Or to have prophetic dreams;
Make sure it is not for profit,
Being a money making scheme.
You may predict a lucky sign,
Or some kind of amazing thing;
A possible future design,
That only a dreamer could bring.
What you predict may just take place,
But some will know you are a fraud;
By telling others to embrace,
And to worship another god.
The Lord your God is testing you,
Finding out if you do love Him;
See if your heart and soul are true,
And if your faith is growing dim.
Always worship the Lord your God,
Fear Him and obey His commands;
Serving to give honor and laud,
Following what His Law demands.
That prophet must be put to death,
Preaching revolt against the Lord;
Choke him of every last breath,
Beheading with a two-edge sword.
He was trying to make you stray,
From following the Lord your God;
Conniving to lead you away,
Into evil making you flawed.
Your family may try to tempt,
In worshipping another god;
But you must convince to preempt,
And show the other is a fraud.
There may be some gods around you,
They just might be both near and far;
From a foreign land as not true,
Nevertheless they cause a scar.
Do not be influenced by them,
Feeling not sorry or pity;
Rather be able to condemn,
For following something gritty.
