Ezekiel 13

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

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;

Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.

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.

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.

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?

Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God.

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.

58 thoughts on “Ezekiel Chapter 13

  1. “Son of man, prophesy against the false prophets of Israel who are inventing their own prophecies. Say to them, ‘Listen to the word of the Lord . This is what the Sovereign Lord says: What sorrow awaits the false prophets who are following their own imaginations and have seen nothing at all!’ Instead, they have told lies and made false predictions. They say, ‘This message is from the Lord ,’ even though the Lord never sent them. And yet they expect him to fulfill their prophecies! “Now, son of man, speak out against the women who prophesy from their own imaginations. You have discouraged the righteous with your lies, but I didn’t want them to be sad. And you have encouraged the wicked by promising them life, even though they continue in their sins.
    Ezekiel 13:2‭-‬3‭, ‬6‭, ‬17‭-‬17‭, ‬22 NLT

    Again, the prophets of old might as well be prophesying to the church of our day. Many are those in this hour, male and female alike, who say they speak for God when they do not: they preach from the desires of their own hearts. They preach a grace that discourages God’s holiness and encourages a life of continued sin. They call holiness “bondage and legalism,” while promising life to those who are indistinguishable from the world.

    Furthermore, these prophets of today wrestle the Scriptures to invent doctrines God did not intend. Then, they fully expect Him to honor the salvation doctrines they have contrived. They proclaim a broad way leads to life and discourage and lambast those who would walk the narrow way. In their haste to build bigger churches, they call good evil and evil good–the truth, they call “hate speech,” and lies they call “the truth” for a new age. They include in The Kingdom whoremongers and adulterers, effeminate and idolaters who have not repented of their ways.

    God did not call these prophets who say they walk in the light, yet do the deeds of darkness. Though they perform lying wonders and deceive multitudes, they cannot pervert the Gospel and expect to go unpunished. They may be sincere in their beliefs, but they are sincerely wrong, deceived by their own delusions because they received not in themselves a love for God’s truth.

    We must be careful that, in our zeal for souls, we learn not the way of the heathen. A desire to seek and save the lost can never lead us to compromise the integrity of God’s Word. The only true way to love the lost and build God’s church is to preach the same message God spoke through the mouths of His Apostles. We cannot sacrifice God-called holiness on the altars of easy evangelism.

  2. This chapter goes back once again to warn against false prophets (men and women) and the lies they spread. We must be careful and not only heed the warnings; but, be vigilant about knowing for ourselves whether it be truth. How?? By knowing the word. How?? By reading the word. Verse 16 ERV says “All these things will happen to the false prophets of Israel. They speak to the people of Jerusalem and say there will be peace, but there is no peace.” This is what the Lord God said.” It is rather plain and simple….Know Jesus, Know Peace; but, No Jesus, no peace. Proverbs 9:10 NLT says “Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.”

  3. 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;
    Time and time again he’ll show you that he is God. Time and time again his mercy will show you that he is the one true living God.

  4. God’s Message came to me: “Son of man, preach against the prophets of Israel who are making things up out of their own heads and calling it ‘prophesying.’
    Preach to them the real thing.
    MSG

    I remember when several “off-brand” sodas were being introduced, the Coke brand released several ads calling Coke “The real thing”, setting itself apart from the imitators.
    Compare this to living for God – once you’ve heard His voice and read His Word, you should be able to recognize ‘The Real Thing’ and no imitation will do!

  5. Not too many people truly know who Jesus is. To know him is to obey his commandments. To often people want to say they know God, bit do not want to do what he has commanded. It’s time we put God first and allow him to work in our life.

  6. Ezekiel 13:16 (English Amp) False prophets) The ( false) prophets of Israel who prophesied deceitfully about Jerusalem, seeing visions of peace for her when there is no peace, says the Lord. You got to be aware of false prophets and people lying to you. All the false prophets in Isral. You got to be careful . There know vision without God. Or know peace without God either.

  7. Ezekiel 13:5 NIV
    You have not gone up to the breaches in the wall to repair it for the people of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the day of the LORD.

    Let’s consider that it may be time to repair some breaches. The wall is a boundary use to keep things out and protect what is within. This scripture is a great reminder that we should often take a moment and repair any breach in the boundaries that have been placed around us to protect what we hold dear to our hearts. It’s important to repair as a forthought and not a after thought. When the battle begins we need all hands on deck engaged in battle.

    Lord transform me now that I may be strong in the battles to come!

  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:

    Despite Israel constantly being in trouble for the many things they do, and being chastised for everything, God has now turned his attention to some of the leaders and is dealing with them, from this this point, there are 2 things that we can clearly observe
    1. God will always hold the prophet or leader to a higher standard than that of the “normal” congregation, because it is usually by their lips that people follow, James 3 tells us that not everyone should be a teacher because they are held accountable at a higher level and they should be careful. Leaders always must be careful what they say and how they behave, because people follow them and can be lead astray. Follow me as I follow Christ
    2. God, even when he is increasingly sorrowful and upset with his people, will still and always continue to be a protective parent. in this chapter, he says the false prophets have seduced His people. it doesnt matter how angry God can be with us, he will always seek to be protect us and look out for what is best.

  9. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord .
    Ezekiel 13:21 NIV

    In Jesus name!! The veils of deception will be removed and people’s eyes will be open! Their ears will be unstopped. They will be able to see the revelation and Truth of the Word of God. They will turn from their false doctrines, traditions, false religions and come to know Himand worship Him in Truth.

  10. “Have you not seen a futile vision, and have you not spoken false divination? You say, ‘The LORD says,’ but I have not spoken.” Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Because you have spoken nonsense and envisioned lies, therefore I am indeed against you,” says the Lord GOD.”
    ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭13:7-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    “Some were sent and some just went” It is a very dangerous place to be when you assume a place of Ministry without being called or sent out. When you manufacture a Word from the Lord that does not agree with the three teachers in your life the Word, spiritual leader (Pastor) and the Holy Ghost you are in trouble. Popularity is not a test of truth.

  11. 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.

    There is Surety in the Lord and Safety. I can promis you’re safe following Gods ways and Commandments. Every day we must guard our eyes and ears from this world. It’s one thing looking at and hearing the things going on around us but it’s another RECIEVING what you’re looking at and hearing the things around you. Guard your heart and Go be a light unto this world we are this worlds HOPE

  12. 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.

    Flattering ears

    What do you want to hear? What do you want to be prophesied? There are a thousand churches, unfortunately , that are more than willing to tell you what you want to hear. Yet what about your soul? Thank you Jesus for a Pastor that follows the voice of God, and tells us what we need to hear and not what we want to hear. For His Kingdom to Come, it’s all about souls, it’s always been about souls.

  13. 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.

    The Lord will not discourage you or bring you down, and He definitely would not give strength to the wicked… Be spiritually attentive and learn to recognize truth and the absence of it. Deliver us and this world God that we would know You and that You alone are God!

  14. This will happen because these evil prophets decive my people by saying,
    All is peaceful’ when there is no peace at all ! It’s as if the people have built a flimsy wall , and these prophets have trying to reinforce it by covering it with
    Whitewash! Ezekiel 13: 8 NLT

    I am grateful and thankful that the Lord has placed me in a church that the men of God speaks the truth regardless who gets offended.

  15. “Son of man, prophesy against the false prophets of Israel who are inventing their own prophecies. Say to them, ‘Listen to the word of the Lord . Instead, they have told lies and made false predictions. They say, ‘This message is from the Lord ,’ even though the Lord never sent them. And yet they expect him to fulfill their prophecies! Can your visions be anything but false if you claim, ‘This message is from the Lord ,’ when I have not even spoken to you? “Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because what you say is false and your visions are a lie, I will stand against you, says the Sovereign Lord . I will raise my fist against all the prophets who see false visions and make lying predictions, and they will be banished from the community of Israel. I will blot their names from Israel’s record books, and they will never again set foot in their own land. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign Lord .
    Ezekiel 13:2‭, ‬6‭-‬9 NLT
    I note something during my 5 year about to be 6 at the end of next month people are looking for peace and love so people see that these false prophets only tell you what you want to hear but they really never tell you what you need at least that what I been noticing in these last pass chapter it easy to get jumbo up in these false prophet GOD has a great punishment for the false prophet

  16. “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,”
    ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭13:17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Acts 2:17-18 (KJV)
    17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

    The advisory doesn’t have any new tricks, isn’t a mastermind in developing new ways to deceive you. Ultimately, he will mimic what the Lord has already established.

    Don’t stand for the advisories prophesies. Stand and know Who Is The Lord through His anointed prophets. They will speak Faith and Hope, not sadness and anger.. They will build up for the Kingdom of God, not tear down for personal gain.

  17. Ezekiel 13 message version
    20-21 “Therefore God says, ‘I am against all the devices and techniques you use to hunt down souls. I’ll rip them out of your hands. I’ll free the souls you’re trying to catch. I’ll rip your magic bracelets and scarves to shreds and deliver my people from your influence so they’ll no longer be victimized by you. That’s how you’ll come to realize that I am God.

    22-23 “‘Because you’ve confounded and confused good people, unsuspecting and innocent people, with your lies, and because you’ve made it easy for others to persist in evil so that it wouldn’t even dawn on them to turn to me so I could save them, as of now you’re finished. No more delusion-mongering from you, no more sermonic lies. I’m going to rescue my people from your clutches. And you’ll realize that I am God.’”

    An Open Bible
    This is why Bible Studies are so important. Sharing the Word together . Helping friends , family , to take a real look at the Bible . The world is full of those who speak false doctrines. We are responsible to show them to lead them into truth.
    Open the Bible show them they will listen they are hungry if they were not hungry then why are they listening to every tele evangelist , seeking for prophets and prophetess to speak into their life. An Open Bible an Open opportunity what am I going to do with it?

  18. 3 Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

    To follow your own spirit is to follow a path straight to the lake fire.

    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?

    Don’t confuse your thoughts or you’re daydreaming with the voice of the Lord.

  19. Ezekiel 13:2-3
    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.

    These foolish prophets prophesied out of their own hearts and followed their own spirit, instead of Hearing the Word of the Lord. They regarded what came to their own hearts and following their own spirit to be more important than what God had to say.

    Be careful who you allow to speak into your life, because it may not be from God at all.

  20. THY KINGDOM COME
    TRUTH

    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.

    GOD is not the author of confusion, but HE is the prince of PEACE. The Kingdom of GOD has 1 KING, 1 Mission, 1 Vision and 1 Will. Men and women veer into grave danger when they attempt to speak what GOD has said, but the lifeless, condemning words are spoken from the heart of man and not the heart of GOD.

    JESUS takes great offense to people who say GOD said when in fact; they have not prayed in the Spirit, have not meditated in the Word of GOD. GOD is seeking perpetually through HIS eternal WORD, the BIBLE. However, people have become spiritually lazy and do not want to read the BIBLE for a Word from GOD, so they seek men for answers.

    The confusion and dishonesty arise when men speak a word to attempt to build a following or impress others. The Word they speak is not from God, but from a carnal minded, selfish individual who has not prayed for you nor sought the LORD for you, but will speak a “word” to impress you.

    RUN from these people!

    The Kingdom of GOD is about Kingdom order. GOD has given us Pastors to watch, pray and speak to us. If the Pastor relaeases another, man of GOD to speak to us, then we always confirm the spoken to us with our Pastor.

    As we continue to “Seek FIRST the Kingdom of GOD” we will witness, false prophets rise among us, JESUS said. We must stay as closely connected as possible to our Church and Pastor.

  21. 3 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing!

    You can you have false prophets in your life that you follow and are leading you the wrong path or you can be your own foolish prophet that is following your own self and self pleasure first before God. Either one leads to NOTHING!!! God is the only one that can lead to through that straight and narrow path to salvation. Who is your biggest influence? Who do you have your eyes set on? Whose advice are you taking in? We must be careful in who we listening…we can’t let our flesh take over because it’ll lead us to the wrong path.

  22. iLove the Kingdom
    Ezekiel 13:2-3 KJV  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!

    Folks gotta be careful listening to just any ole preacher. Some folks prophesy from their own hearts. Yes, it’s possible to get a spiritual message from the spirit that’s not from the Spirit. Notice the Word says, “Woe unto the foolish prophets that follow their “own spirit”.

    We must get in tune with the Holy Spirit and have a relationship with Him and God will lead and guide us into the truth.

  23. “ ‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions, I am against you, declares the Sovereign Lord . My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign Lord .
    Ezekiel 13:8‭-‬9 NIV
    https://bible.com/bible/111/ezk.13.8-9.NIV

    We are called to speak the truth and that is God’s truth. In our society we are taught that everyone has their own voice and that they should speak their mind. We can speak our mind only if its God’s mind that is in us. We must be careful of those that use thier own thoughts and agendas to advance their will. Our intent is to advance the kingdom and His will by speaking what His Spirit gives us to speak and not our own manly thoghts. We need His hand to be upon us because without it it everything is false.

  24. 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.

    We must be careful to not say “thus saith the Lord” if the Lord didn’t say it. Too many men these days are speaking out of their own spirit and flesh, rather than seeking God for a word from the Lord. The Bible says to “try the spirit” and see if it be of the Lord. If someone tells you something that doesn’t line up with His Word, what your Man of God says, and what the Holy Ghost speaks to you, discard it, and avoid allowing that person to speak into your life. The enemy is slick and deceitful and will use any tool he can to bring deception to our lives.

    Proverbs 4:23 – Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

  25. 2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. Say to those who who prophesy out of their own imagination: hear the word of the Lord.
    3 This is what the Sovereign Lord says, woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing.

    6 Their visions are false and their divination a lie. They say, “The Lord declares,” when the Lord has not sent them, yet they expect their words to be fulfilled.

  26. 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.

    Prophets or preachers of the gospel must not follow their own spirit and desires. They must preach what thus saith the Lord and be obedient to the voice of God. When they do so God will bless their efforts and anoint them to do the work of the Lord.

  27. Ezekial 13 Woe on the Foolish Prophets

    13:19 And will you 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?
    Romans 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

    False prophets preach what people want to hear instead of what they need to hear.
    Isaiah 30:10 Which say to the seers,See not; and to the prophets Prophesy not unto us right things,speak unto us smooth things,prophesy deceits:

    Keep close to the word of God, and everything to seek the teaching of the Holy Spirit. Let us so trust the promises of God as to keep his commandments

  28. 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.

    Jesus said, “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul. Rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” We must guard ourselves against those who do not speak the full truth and prevent our own words from straying from the truth. We might receive a bit of revelation and want to share with someone who is struggling with a certain issue. We may think, this will have more of an impact if we embellish it a little to give it a bit more punch.

    Peter encourages us, that God is still in control. No one stretches the truth and gets away with it. 2 Peter 2:3 “…their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep”

  29. 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.
    God gives a great responsibility to his church to deliver his word and not what the individual would rather say regardless if it aligns with the word of God or not. God does not want us to be directed by the social climate of this world and be afraid to speak his truth. He wants everyone to he saved. He does not want his salvation message watered down and changed just to make people feel comfortable.
    His word shows what happens when people believe fallacies instead of the truth. Many of the children were fooled by false prophets and it cost them and their families greatly.
    We must ensure that everything we teach our children, read and listen to aligns with the word of God and not someone’s one’s own personal interpretation. If it is not of God, we must brush it aside . We cannot risk the salvation of ourselves, our children,our loved ones and all that those that Jesus brings into our lives.

    For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:(Isaiah 28:10‭)
    All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works ( 2Tim. 3:16-17)

  30. ““Son of man, prophesy against the false prophets of Israel who are inventing their own prophecies. Say to them, ‘Listen to the word of the Lord. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: What sorrow awaits the false prophets who are following their own imaginations and have seen nothing at all!’ “O people of Israel, these prophets of yours are like jackals digging in the ruins.”
    ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭13:2-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  31. 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.

    In this day, evil is good and good is evil-just like the word said it would be in the last days. It is backwards. Man has good intentions but if he avoids the straight and narrow or confining path, he has strayed. Then he will lead others astray. The apostolic doctrine doesn’t remove the old landmarks, the old ways that brings liberty. Stay on the old path, the faith that was once delivered to the saints- as Bro Godwin put it.

  32. 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.
    Preach the truth.

  33. Deliver us Lord Jesus……..

    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.

    Amen…….

  34. 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.

  35. 1 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.

    Where God gives a warrant to do any thing, he gives wisdom. What they delivered was not what they had seen or heard, as that is which the ministers of Christ deliver. They were not praying prophets, had no intercourse with Heaven; they contrived how to please people, not how to do them good; they stood not against sin. They flattered people into vain hopes. Such widen the breach, by causing men to think themselves deserving of eternal life, when the wrath of God abides upon them.

  36. 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.

    I know I have, and I also know of others who also have built these walls up. Walls with false pretenses. Walls just to bluff someone else. Walls to create a false sense of security. Jesus tears them down, and he does it because they are not built on Him or His word.

    We must keep ourselves built on His Word, as His is the only foundation that will stand.

  37. 1 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.

    Beware of those foxes! False prophets do not care about the truth, they care about popularity. So they’ll tell you what you want to hear and lull you into a false sense of security. And everything they say comes not out of the mouth of God, but from their own foolishness. I’m thankful to have a pastor that preaches truth, that seeks God, and cares more about my soul than being popular.

  38. Thus saith the Lord God, woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 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.

  39. 8“Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because what you say is false and your visions are a lie, I will stand against you, says the Sovereign LORD.

    There are false prophets, fortune tellers, palm readers that will tell you what you want to hear. They will deceive you into believing what they say is true. We have to be aware of people like this. Have friends whom you can trust. Pray unto God for direction, and seek guidance from our Pastor.

  40. 3 Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

    The power of God only comes from him. We cannot recreate it, manufacture or fabricate it. If God is not in it it might look good from a distance but when you get into it you will know that nothing is happening. The grass is always greener on the other side. Some change churches on whims of their own thinking not really hearing the voice of God to find themselves out of the will of God and powerless. Let God be true and every man a liar. Let us pray that God inspire us to do his will rather than us trying to somehow talk God unto blessing ours.

  41. Today the spirit that drives false prophets is satan himself; false prophets belong to satan’s kingdom. Deception is his speciality he can present himself as though he were righteous.
    2 Corinthians 11:14 says he can disguise himself as an angel of light.
    We should be wise to satan’s tactics and knowledgeable of his devices.
    ( and closeness to JESUS )!
    We must recognize that all deceivers will receive a just reward.

  42. 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:

    There are many religious organizations and leaders that speak lies in the name of religion and tell others what they want to hear. Those are the very ones that the Lord is against. It is important to tell people the truth. Salvation is an eternal matter and their soul is valuable that truth even when it may hurt is better than lies that lead to eternal torment.

  43. [Eze 13:5 KJV] 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.
    [Eze 22:30 KJV] 30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
    The man God sought was not only a builder, but just as importantly was a man of prayer. Like Abraham (Genesis 20:7) and Moses (Exodus 32:9-14) and David (2 Samuel 24:15-18), God looked for one who would, through prayer, stand in the gap between a holy God and His disobedient, rebellious, profane people. This man in the gap would fight for and hopefully rescue God’s people in prayer. ( David Guzik; https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/guzik_david/StudyGuide2017-Eze/Eze-22.cfm?a=824030 )
    God is raising up warriors, intercessors who will stand in the gap for a lost and dying world. Let Him use us!!!!! Why not you? Why not me?

  44. God ’s Message came to me: “Son of man, preach against the prophets of Israel who are making things up out of their own heads and calling it ‘prophesying.’ “Preach to them the real thing. Tell them, ‘Listen to God ’s Message!’ God , the Master, pronounces doom on the empty-headed prophets who do their own thing and know nothing of what’s going on! Your prophets, Israel, are like jackals scavenging through the ruins. They haven’t lifted a finger to repair the defenses of the city and have risked nothing to help Israel stand on God ’s Day of Judgment. All they do is fantasize comforting illusions and preach lying sermons. They say ‘ God says . . .’ when God hasn’t so much as breathed in their direction. And yet they stand around thinking that something they said is going to happen.
    Ezekiel 13:2‭-‬6 MSG
    We(POFW) have and know the truth. Souls/ A.L.M.A.S must be our passion My heart is saddened by all those who are attending big mega,rich, feel good to all of what is desired for ‘now.’ Their ears are listening to lies instead of truth. Many are deceived by what they hear. And many souls are lost because some of these preachers have exchanged the gospel of Christ for the riches of this world.
    Be careful in what you allow to enter into your spirit, if it doesn’t feel right then stay away!

    Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
    Proverbs 23:23 KJV

  45. ““And the women prophets—son of man, take your stand against the women prophets who make up stuff out of their own minds. Oppose them. Say ‘Doom’ to the women who sew magic bracelets and head scarves to suit every taste, devices to trap souls. Say, ‘Will you kill the souls of my people, use living souls to make yourselves rich and popular? You have profaned me among my people just to get ahead yourselves, used me to make yourselves look good—killing souls who should never have died and coddling souls who shouldn’t live. You’ve lied to people who love listening to lies.’”
    ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭13:17-19‬ ‭MSG‬‬

    Wow! There are still people today who kill souls needing to be saved and save souls needing to be killed. It’s those who seek their own pleasures who get sucked into this. They see that puffing people up makes people happy with them, so they say that God told them something when really they made it up themselves.

    Whoa be unto anyone who lives and says that God told them something that he really did not.

  46. 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.

    Speaking vanity is to speak for ones own selfish gain. These false prophets see lies and not visions from God, nor hear words from him either. So everything they do is deception. They lead God’s sheep astray. This is why we need to be mindful of what and who we are listening to.

  47. Ezekiel 13:6-7

    Their visions are false and their divinations a lie. Even though the Lord has not sent them, they say, “The Lord declares,” and expect him to fulfill their words. Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divinations when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken?

    The warning to all that prophecy, if God didn’t say it, don’t say he did! It goes the same to those who add or take away from the Bible.

    We should be careful using translations not to the original. We can lose out by not looking into is original definition.

  48. 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.

    MY GOD ALWAYS GETS THE GLORY!!!

  49. Some of the elders of Israel came to me and sat down in front of me. Then the word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of me at all?
    Ezekiel 14:1‭-‬3 NIV

    When we pray and cover our church we need to remember all of the levels. From guests and new believers, to hospitality, to CM, Music, Bus, and even the Elders. The Elders and Pastor are accountable to each other on a more dedicated level. We need to cover our Elders in the church as well as any other group or ministry.

  50. 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.

  51. We often speak of the importance of being founded upon the rock. We recognize the importance of the foundation in our walk with God, but notice the declaration of the prophet… because God cares as much about the work we build upon that foundation. ‘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. 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;’

    The kingdom of God has to be founded upon God’s word and every work we build upon it should glorify him and him alone! The Bible declares that whatsoever we do even in word or deed should be done as unto him… we need to remember that it is after all, his kingdom. We are but his willing servants. We don’t build anything our way because we want it to last… and anything he does will last forever! Let him guide our steps, let him guide our thoughts, let him guide the work of our hands, let him guide everything we do for him in his kingdom!

  52. Instead, they have told lies and made false predictions. They say, ‘This message is from the Lord ,’ even though the Lord never sent them. And yet they expect him to fulfill their prophecies!(Ezekiel 13:6 NLT)

    Why do some people think it is ok to lie and think that covering up what they did is going to save them It’s not the crime that gets you in trouble, nearly as much as the cover-up. What people don’t know is lies are typically motivated by a desire to get other people to either do something or not do something, well let me tell you one thing God himself doesn’t like lying he hates it in God eyes lying is abomination and the last thing you ever want is having God not on your side.
