The prophets prophesy falsely,

ARE WE EASILY LED ASTRAY STILL?
 
 
(Jer 5:20 KJV)  Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying,
21  Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
22  Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?
23  But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.
24  Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.
25  Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.
26  For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.
27  As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.
28  They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
29  Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
30  A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;
31  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

(Jer 6:13 KJV)  For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
14  They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
15  Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
16  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.
17  Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18  Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19  Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
20  To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
 
and many people wonder why the recession lingers…

 

We all do even  need to seriously know, differentiate between how God now deals with the wicked, those persons deliberately disobedient to him, he God does not go along with them for sure .. God’s grace of forgiveness even does not extend to everyone..
 
and next the righteous those people who put their trust in him.. God is merciful, kind to them, but not all professing Christians now are righteous for sure as well.
 
   

“Lie #3:‘You are not smart enough or good enough to think for yourself.  We will do your thinking for you.’”

DO YOU MERELY TAKE OTHER PEOPLE’S WORD  AS TO WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS OR DO YOU KNOW, READ THE BIBLE DAILY FOR YOURSELF?
