“The priests are like the prophets, all ungodly, wicked men. I have seen their despicable acts right here in my own Temple,” says the LORD. “Therefore, their paths will be dark and slippery. They will be chased down dark and treacherous trails, where they will fall. For I will bring disaster upon them when their time of punishment comes. I, the LORD, have spoken! “I saw that the prophets of Samaria were terribly evil, for they prophesied by Baal and led my people of Isreal into sin. But now I see that the prophets of Jerusalem are even worse! They commit adultery, and they love dishonesty. They encourage those who are doing evil instead of turning them away from their sins. These prophets are as wicked as the people of Sodom and Gomorrah once were.” Jeremiah 23:11-14
Therefore, this is what the LORD Almighty says concerning the prophets; “I will feed them with bitterness and give them poison to drink. For it is because of Jerusalem’s prophets that wickedness fills this land. Jeremiah 23:15
“This is my warning to my people”, says the LORD Almighty. “Do not listen to these prophets when they prophesy to you, filling you with futile hopes. They are making up everything they say. They do not speak for the LORD! They keep saying to these rebels who dispise my word, ‘Don’t worry! The LORD says you will have peace!’ And to those who stubbornly follow their own evil desires, they say, ‘No harm will come your way!’ “But can you name even one of these prophets who knows the LORD well enough to hear what he is saying? Has even one of them cared enough to listen? Look! The LORD’s anger bursts out like a storm, a whirlwind what swirls down on the heads of the wicked. The anger of the LORD will not diminish until it has finished all his plans. In the days to come, you will understand all this very clearly. Jeremiah 23:16-20
The Lord Jesus is coming soon. Be aware of the false prophets and teachers filling our pulpits! Test everything that is said (1 John 4:1) Do these prophets and teachers have the Spirit of God? How do you know? …If a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ became a human being, that person has the Spirit of God. 1 John 4:2
Jesus Christ is returning soon! Be watchful, be ready, be on guard! Look to the Heavens and be ready!
Walking the road with the Lord is simple, but not easy.
