“Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, because my flock lacks a shepherd and so has been plundered and has become food for all the wild animals, and because my shepherds did not search for my flock but cared for themselves rather than for my flock, therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against the shepherds and will hold them accountable for my flock. I will remove them from tending the flock so that the shepherds can no longer feed themselves. I will rescue my flock from their mouths, and it will no longer be food for them,” Ezekiel 34:7-10.
“I tell you My people, it is time for many of you to go back into your caves.
It is time for some of you to inquire of me. For many of you have been “misled” lately.
You have been lured to sleep by the enticing words of some preachers in this hour. For their persuasive speech did not originate from me.
They have set-up their own kingdoms rather than mine.
Who is to be your pastor rather than Me?
Who has been set-up to be the Great Shepherd alone?
I tell you that these are not done by My hand. I alone set-up a man into office. I alone set-up a man or a woman to be my vessel upon this earth.
But many of you “flock” to your own church to hear the words of the person who has been
established to be the man who would pastor a church.
The entire system is faulty and is falling apart. But no…. you would rather follow the traditions of man.
You would rather have a Saul leading your church rather than a David.
But I tell you, your great buildings will fall. Your time will come; and then my true apostles and prophets will help set up My Kingdom.
Then the foundation will be secure.”
