a prophets function is to make us consciously aware of our obligations to God, not to entertain us by predicting if a movie star will become pregnant or who will win the next basketball game or boxing match- magicians do that!
It should be seen clearly from this writing of Justin that Christianity is a religion started in Rome by Simon Magus and his false apostolic team “Helena and Menander.”
John the apostle warned the true followers of Christ [the authentic children of the kingdom] concerning the teaching of the Simonians, the false Christians otherwise known as the Christian agnostics which used allegorical interpretations spiritualizing literal meanings and practiced demonic invocations.
All that Simon Magus wanted to achieve was to dominate and stamp out the original Jewish Messianic movement so that he would replace Christ, which he eventually achieved through the help of the Romans. The validation that Simon Magus’ false esoteric order was named “Christians” can be read in the writing of Justin Martyr (152 A.D.) who is generally regarded as the first outstanding Christian apologist of the 2nd century….
Paul compared these who will arise in the last days to oppose the truth of God with the story of Moses and Jannes and Jambres. Paul said the same way Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses in the presence of Pharaoh, would be the same method that the diviners, sorcerers, and the psychics who will secretly introduce destructive teachings in the church will resist the truth. Paul called them men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith (2Timothy3:8).
