The revelation he has had is to work on peoples' weakness, get their bank
details and siphon off their money.
I am not sure whether this can be reconciled with Jesus' teachings.
My test is that is someone claims they have had something revealed to them
then it is not revealed by God. If they come in humility and almost doubt
then it may be.
