A couple of days ago God said to me to read Ezekiel 13. If anyone isn’t familiar with that chapter it’s a prophecy against false prophets and in the chapter it shows the works of one. While I was reading He was showing me how the false ones are going to arise with boldness. Like animals preying on and devouring the young, and the weak. This chapter is like a confirmation of what God was saying to me.
Here’s the chapter if you want to read it
Ezekiel 13:1-23 KJV And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD; 3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. 6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. 7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken? 8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. 9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD. 10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter: 11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it. 12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? 13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it. 14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it; 16 To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD. 17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them, 18 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you? 19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? 20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. 21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life: 23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

GOD SHOWED ME SOME EXTRA VERSES REGARDING HIS SPOKEN WORD AND FALSE PROPHECY. IN THE OH SO FAMILIAR FIRST CHAPTER OF JEREMIAH, THE LORD IS SPEAKING TO HIM THAT, HE (GOD) FORMED HIM AND KNEW HIM BEFORE HE WAS BORN MEANING THAT BEFORE HE WAS EVEN THOUGHT OF BY HIS PARENTS GOD KNEW HIM AND ORDAINED HIM A PROPHETS TO THE NATIONS. HE TOLD JEREMIAH THAT WHATEVER HE SPOKE JEREMIAH WOULD CONVEY IT TO THE NATION WHATEVER IT WAS THEN, GOD SAID THIS TO JEREMIAH Jeremiah 1:11 KJV Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree.
I BELIEVE THAT GOD WAS TESTING JEREMIAH AND REVEALING JEREMIAHS TRUST FOR GOD AND VISE VERSA. AND JEREMIAH BEGAN SPEAKING GOD’S WORD.
MORE ABOUT FALSE PROPHETS
IT’S A HUMBLE SITUATION THAT GOD WILL TRUST YOU WITH INFORMATION ABOUT ANYTHING WHETHER IT’S PROPHETIC OR REVELATION KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WORD. SOME REASONS WHY I BELIEVE GOD IS TAKING ME TO THESE SCRIPTURES IS TO WARN US OF WHAT’S COMING AND ALSO THE PROPHETIC PEOPLE OF GOD WILL NOT BEGAN TO PROPHECY, SPEAKING LIES AND WORDS TO ITCHING EARS. AND TO REMAIN TUNE TO THE VOICE OF THE LORD. JESUS HAS MADE A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FATHER ACCESSIBLE TO US BY FAITH AND TRUST IN HIS MIGHTY DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION TO LIFE.
THERE IS SCRIPTURES IN THE NT THAT TALK ABOUT ALL THE UGLY THINGS THAT WILL BEGAN TO HAPPEN. ONE OF THEM IS THE ARISE OF FALSE PROPHETS Matthew 24:24 KJV For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
2 Peter 2:1-10 KJV But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
JUST LIKE OFFENSE, UN FORGIVENESS AND VARIOUS SINS CAN DELIVER YOU TO DAMNATION, FOLLOWING IN THE WAY OF THE FALSE PROPHET CAN CAUSE EQUAL DESTRUCTION TO THE SOUL OF MAN. THESE MEN AND WOMEN SPEAK PROPHETIC WORDS OUT OF THEIR OWN HEARTS AND AMBITIONS. THROUGH MANIPULATION & CONTROL WHICH IS MORE COMMONLY KNOWN AS WITCH CRAFT, SPEAK A WORD THEY NEVER HEARD FROM THE LORD AS A GAIN UNTO THEMSELVES. THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT THE LORD GAVE THEM ALL TYPES OF DREAMS & VISIONS THAT YOU MAY GLORIFY THEIR WORDS AND LIFESTYLE. THEY WANT YOUR MONEY AND TIME ALSO, TELL YOU TO GIVE UNTO THEIR BOSOMS SO THAT GOD MAY BLESS YOU. THEY WILL INVITE YOU TO COME TO AND TUNE INTO THEIR MEETINGS SO YOU CAN WATCH THEM DO MAGIC TRICKS IN THE NAME OF JESUS. THEY WANT YOU TO GLORIFY AND MAGNIFY THEM.
JEREMIAH SPEAKING….Jeremiah 23:9 KJV Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.
Jeremiah 23:14-17 KJV 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. 15 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. 16 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. 17 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.
Jeremiah 23:18-24 KJV 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? 19 Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. 20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. 21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. 22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings. 23 Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? 24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
Jeremiah 23:23-40 KJV Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? 24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD. 25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. 26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; 27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. 28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD. 29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? 30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. 31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. 32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.
This scriptures are really getting my attention. I never want people to consider me false if i spoke a word that God did not say I’d make Him a liar when that word does not come to pass and God cannot lie. And whatever the Lord does He will first reveal it to his true prophets. We have no right as claimed people of God speak what God did not speak and call it a prophetic word from His throne. None at all. If God has called you to the prophetic ministry , pray, pray, pray for the people of God and for yourselves to remain humble and obedient to God. Let Him give you the words to speak. And for those out there speaking lies and doing magic tricks in the name of Jesus repent or you’re gonna go to Hell.
