Torah, Deuteronomy, 18:19 – 18:20: And it will be, that whoever does not hearken to My words that he speaks in My name, I will exact [it] of him. But the prophet who intentionally speaks a word in My name, which I did not command him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.
Everything depends on the desires that suddenly appear in us. Even during those great days when people were in the attainment of the Creator, a person could be a great saint one moment and a great sinner the next. Therefore, while reading the Torah, it is necessary to know exactly whom the Creator addresses. After all, everything happens within one person.
The Torah is written for each one individually and each of us should carve it on his heart, meaning on all his desires.
Question: Why does the prophet suddenly begin to speak in the name of other gods?
Answer: Of course, there is a difference whether or not he intentionally speaks in the name of the Creator or if he was framed and fell. It could be that egoism has suddenly exploded in him and he can’t stay on the high level of bestowal, or he moved from it due to some other reasons.
It is written, that he “speaks a word in My name, which I did not command him to speak…” Obviously, if he fell into an egoistic state, he will do everything to justify himself and to look like righteous to himself and to others. There were many such false prophets.
