“And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own heart, ‘Hear the word of the Lord!’ ”
3 Thus says the Lord God: “Woe to the foolish prophets, who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing! 4 O Israel, your prophets are like foxes in the deserts. 5 You have not gone up into the gaps to build a wall for the house of Israel to stand in battle on the day of the Lord. 6 They have envisioned futility and false divination, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord!’ But the Lord has not sent them; yet they hope that the word may be confirmed. 7 Have you not seen a futile vision, and have you not spoken false divination? You say, ‘The Lord says,’ but I have not spoken.”
sup>8 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Because you have spoken nonsense and envisioned lies, therefore I am indeed against you,” says the Lord God. 9 “My hand will be against the prophets who envision futility and who divine lies; they shall not be in the assembly of My people, nor be written in the record of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter into the land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am the Lord God.
10 “Because, indeed, because they have seduced My people, saying, ‘Peace!’ when there is no peace — and one builds a wall, and they plaster it with untempered mortar — 11 say to those who plaster it with untempered mortar,that it will fall. There will be flooding rain, and you, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall tear it down. 12 Surely, when the wall has fallen, will it not be said to you, ‘Where is the mortar with which you plastered it?’ ”
13 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I will cause a stormy wind to break forth in My fury; and there shall be a flooding rain in My anger, and great hailstones in fury to consume it,” Ezekiel 13:1-13.
“In a time of many reports, who is right and who is wrong in this hour?
In this hour who would you follow?
What voice, what messenger is true and which one is false?
For now I will expose those who pretend to be prophets. In this hour I will bring down those who speak lies and half-truths.
For I will not suffer those who pretend to speak for Me. I will not allow those who have filled the air with their pretentious words to go on as if I do not care.
For I will bring down the pretentiousness of man. I will bring down those who think that they speak for Me.
I will bring down those who have falsely spoken for Me. For I will hold you accountable for these things.
Am I not a God who speaks truth?
Who are those favorite ones that you follow?
Are you following after mere men or are you following after Me?
Just because some speak of glorious things, or their words appear to be framed with tidbits of what appears to be revelation, does not make it truth.
For my truth will expose the lies. Gone will be those who have spoken falsely in my name.
And the lies of those who have attempted to promote themselves through their false prophecies will fall to the ground.”
From the Father.
