Bible Scripture prophesies that a great FLATTERER will rule earth as king at the time of the end of the age before the Lord Jesus/Yahshua returns. Who will this leader of FLATTERY be?
The flatterer appeals to the flesh by glorifying or drawing positive attention to the flesh to gain undue influence or acceptance for selfish motives.
Flattery is deception.
Flattery is manipulation.
We should not allow ourselves to be defined or puffed up by carnal attributes such as outward beauty, worldly intelligence or earthly wealth. We should not be defined by the world, human opinion, carnal memberships or nationality. Rather, we should be defined by our Heavenly citizenship and the Lord Jesus (Yahshua) Himself. We should be defined by the word of God and by the Holy Spirit. Scripture declares true believers are known by the spiritual fruits they bear, and by their love for one another.
Biblical Warning About Flatterers
Job 17:5, He that speaks FLATTERY to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.
Psalm 5:9, For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they FLATTER with their tongue.
Psalm 12:2, They speak vanity every one with his neighbor: with FLATTERING lips and with a DOUBLE HEART do they speak.
Psalm 12:3, The Lord shall cut off all FLATTERING lips,…
Flatterers Follow Their Own Desires and Seek Own Advantage
Jude 1:6, These people are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and FLATTER others for their own advantage.
Fruits of a flatterer: Tale-bearing/Gossip and Ruin
Prov 20:19, He that goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets: therefore meddle not with him that FLATTERS with his lips.
Prov 26:28, …a FLATTERING mouth works ruin.
Prov 29: 5, A man that FLATTERS his neighbor spreads a net for his feet.
Should using FLATTERY or any cover for selfish desire be found among true followers of Jesus/Yahshua?
1 Thess 2:5, For neither at any time used we FLATTERING words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:…
Prov 2:11&16, DISCRETION shall preserve thee, UNDERSTANDING shall keep thee:…, To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which FLATTERS with her words;
RISE of Evil Leadership
Daniel 11:21, And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and OBTAIN the kingdom by FLATTERIES.
FALL of Godly Leadership, and the Evil King's End Game
Daniel 11:32-39, And such as do wickedly Against The Covenant shall he corrupt by FLATTERIES: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall FALL by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall FALL, they shall be helped with a LITTLE help: but many shall cleave to them with FLATTERIES.
And some of them of understanding shall FALL, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed. And the king shall do according to HIS WILL; and he shall EXALT HIMSELF, and MAGNIFY HIMSELF above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall MAGNIFY HIMSELF above all. But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not, shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strongholds with a STRANGE GOD, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to RULE OVER MANY, and shall divide the land for GAIN.
