“Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one." (Shema Israel, ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI Echad) Deuteronomy 6:4
The "wanna be" is so charismatic he could sell honey to a bee. The real Messiah is quiet and pensive. They are both brilliant.
Each has a different goal. One wants to be powerful and famous. The other wants to serve Adonai perfectly. The results, as you can imagine, differ immensely. It's Lust/Envy vs. L-O-V-E.
Society tends to pay more attention to the LOUD, charismatic, colorful options. The truth can sometimes seem too quiet and boring.
The first can lead you sprinting head first over a cliff and into the fire. The latter can and will lead to peace. Don't get me wrong. The truth can also be charismatic and colorful. It's just usually calm and peaceful as it has nothing to prove. It simply is.
So if you are looking for everlasting peace and true love, look no further. GOD placed the truth in your heart. You just need to ask. And this time, it's not a fairy tale.

All the trees of the field shall know that I, the LORD, have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish; I, the LORD, have spoken and have done it. Ezekiel 17:24
