“For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right. For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith The LORD.
Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith The LORD.
And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err. I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah. Therefore thus saith The LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
Thus saith The LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of The LORD. They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.
For who hath stood in the counsel of The LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?” Jeremiah 23:10-17.
“What has happened to those who used to speak the truth?
What has happened to some who used to sit before Me to listen to Me?
You are a Nation that was built upon your forefathers mandates and rules. You were a people that extended love to others.
You used to extend love to the foreigner, and yet now still at this very moment, children are still in cages. They came seeking asylum, but then they were separated from their parents.
You have drifted far from the shore. No longer are you the apple of My Eye. You are split right down the middle.
You spew hatred toward one another; and you still call yourselves My Sons and Daughters!
Indeed you are, but now discipline is in order. For you will enter yet into another war, and this one will be your own making.
You would pursue war with others, when in the past you attempted peace. Your entire system of government is at stake, for in its fragility it gives into the whims and ordeals of another.
Your prophets have become complicit and they shout allegiance to a despotic leader. You are weak and have become fragile.
What is the flag that you wave in front of you? In your great zeal you have thrown those things to the wind.
What revelation would you seek in this hour?
Would you storm The Courts of Heaven for Truth, or would you sit idly by while everything is falling apart around you?
But I would say that even though the hour is very late you can still turn from your maladjusted revelations.
Truth would pour forth like a river and flow down into your innermost parts.”
Thus would say The Spirit of The LORD.
