Words of The Day- False Prophets & Teachers
False Prophets, Teachers.
God calls His people to repent and listen to the faithful prophets. God reveals the terrible damage false prophets do in the church and warns against them. He warns against the false shepherds who destroy and scatter the flock. Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of my pasture!
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said: We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said: We will not hearken. (Jeremiah 6:16-17)
This is what the Lord says: Stand at the crossroads and look: ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, We will not walk in it. I appointed watchmen over you and said: Listen to the sound of the trumpet! But you said, We will not listen.
Beloved don’t allow false prophets and teachers to entice you back into slavery to sin. Be on your guard so that you will not be carried away by lawless men. False prophets promise peace when there is no peace. They tell you that you can live in sin and God will not punish you. Do not believe them. God warns His people not to listen to false prophets and teachers who say He will not punish unrepentant sinners.
God Bless you as we continue on this spiritual journey.
