Beware False Prophets & Leaders

Beware False Prophets & Leaders

 Thus says the Lord of hosts: Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you; they are deluding you. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. They keep saying to those who despise the word of the Lord, “It shall be well with you”; and to all who stubbornly follow their own stubborn hearts, they say, “No calamity shall come upon you.”

 For who has stood in the council of the Lord  so as to see and to hear his word?
    Who has given heed to his word so as to proclaim it?
Look, the storm of the Lord! Wrath has gone forth, a whirling tempest;
    it will burst upon the head of the wicked.
The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he has executed and accomplished
    the intents of his mind.
In the latter days you will understand it clearly.

 I did not send the prophets,  yet they ran;
I did not speak to them,  yet they prophesied.
But if they had stood in my council, then they would have proclaimed my words to my people,
and they would have turned them from their evil way,  and from the evil of their doings.

Am I a God nearby, says the Lord, and not a God far off? Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them? says the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? says the Lord. I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in my name, saying, “I have dreamed, I have dreamed!” How long? Will the hearts of the prophets ever turn back—those who prophesy lies, and who prophesy the deceit of their own heart? They plan to make my people forget my name by their dreams that they tell one another, just as their ancestors forgot my name for Baal. Let the prophet who has a dream tell the dream, but let the one who has my word speak my word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat? says the Lord. Is not my word like fire, says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces? See, therefore, I am against the prophets, says the Lord, who steal my words from one another. See, I am against the prophets, says the Lord, who use their own tongues and say, “Says the Lord.” See, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, says the Lord, and who tell them, and who lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or appoint them; so they do not profit this people at all, says the Lord. “Jeremiah 23:16-32 (NRSVCE)

 I pray you will have a discerning, heart, mind, spirit and soul to rightly divide the Truth
