“Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?” Ezekiel 34:2.
“Some of my shepherds will fall in this hour. For they have followed after the world; they are being pressured to “make ends meet.” What they don’t understand is that I AM able to meet all their needs.
Woe to those who lead my people astray; for their fall will be great. The churches and the buildings must be built upon my Son. He is the chief cornerstone and not a man. Woe to those who elevate a man. Woe to those who put money above Me. For your fall will be great and it will be heard throughout my kingdom.
For you have a responsibility to guide my people unto truth; but instead, you have taken them down a slippery slope. There is still time to repent. There is still time to change the direction you’re going. But there are two paths ahead of you; one leads to utter destruction, and the other one leads to my cross.
The sheep will be scattered, and they will find water and green pastures that you have not given to them. And then in your lowliness perhaps you will see. For this is your hour of decision. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord.”
