Most people in the days of Zedekiah were spiritually blind and most of today’s Spiritual Ekklesia are spiritually blind, because we will not see; for we idolize our own ways in rebellion against the Word of God.
Ezekiel 12:1 The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying, 12:2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.
Christ commanded Ezekiel to act out the going forth into captivity, as a warning to those Jews still in Jerusalem ahead of the 586 B.C. deportation and for us in this latter day.
12:3 Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they be a rebellious house. 12:4 Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity.
This refers to the Jews in Judea in c586 B.C. who were taken to Babylon after the final fall of Jerusalem; and today it refers to those Jews in Palestine in this latter day, who will be closed up in ghettos and very many will perish or be removed from the land at the insistence of the Palestinians, and other local peoples.
12:5 Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby. 12:6 In their sight shalt thou bear it upon thy shoulders, and carry it forth in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy face, that thou see not the ground: for I have set thee for a sign unto the house of Israel.
To act out the final removal from a destroyed Jerusalem in 586 B.C. and in the latter day tribulation, Ezekiel prepared his possessions to go forth into captivity and went out at twilight after the wall had been broken; showing that at the end of our period of protection and blessing we will also be sternly corrected.
12:7 And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder in their sight.
The next morning Christ taught Ezekiel the meaning of his commanded actions.
12:8 And in the morning came the word of the LORD unto me, saying, 12:9 Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto thee, What doest thou?
Physically this concerns the Babylonian captivity of physical Jerusalem when the temple and city were destroyed at that time, which was a type of the end time tribulation of physical Israel/Judah [pictured by the city] and today’s Spiritual Ekklesia [pictured by the temple]. Spiritually the physical temple is a type of the Spiritual Ekklesia, the dwelling place of God.
12:10 Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them.
In those days the temple and Jerusalem were completely destroyed and the inhabitants taken into captivity in Babylon, while the rural folk were allowed to remain to tend the land. Jerusalem [a type of physical Israel/Judah] and the temple [a type of the Spiritual Ekklesia] will be corrected during the tribulation, except for a very few faithful who will see the coming correction and put their trust in God.
12:11 Say, I am your sign [example]: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity.
12:12 And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with his eyes.
This is ALMIGHTY GOD doing these things by the hand of Babylon! This is not about any supposed contest of power between Israel and Babylon, it is about the POWER of ALMIGHTY GOD, TO PERFORM HIS WILL!
12:13 My [God’s] net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there. 12:14 And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them.
When today’s tribulation comes we will be humbled and then we will understand that this has come from God because of our idolatry and our many sins!
12:15 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.
When we are scattered they will testify why this has befallen them; as a light of instruction and witness to all nations.
Yes, very many of today’s Laodicean Ekklesia who hear this warning and reject it for now, will learn a lesson in the tribulation and will ultimately sincerely repent! Then they will be a true light of godly example and witness to very many, doing a far more powerful work by personal example and instruction than they ever did in their idolatrous organizations!
12:16 But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations among the heathen whither they come; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
Many in today’s physical and spiritual Israel/Judah will suffer greatly. We have warnings of this today in our disease epidemic. In the tribulation what is now a light burden will become a very heavy burden of drought, famine and disease.
Deuteronomy 28:23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. 28:24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed. 28:25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
Ezekiel 12:17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 12:18 Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water [in time of drought] with trembling and with carefulness; 12:19 And say unto the people of the land, Thus saith the Lord GOD of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.
12:20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
The children of darkness and of the night in the physical nations and in today’s Spiritual Ekklesia who idolize men and corporations and their own imaginations, and their own false teachings and false traditions; those who think that “My Lord delays:” will be surprised when these things come upon them.
12:21 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 12:22 Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth [time will continue and the tribulation is delayed]?
12:23 Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect [Today the fulfillment of scriptural end time prophecy is at hand.] of every vision.
The false teachings of men will come to nothing when the Word of Almighty God is fulfilled!
12:24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.
The time for the fulfilling of the Word of God is at hand!
The sins and pride of today’s Spiritual Ekklesia and the nations has come to the full!
Jesus Christ is about to reject today’s Spiritual Ekklesia and stop his daily intercession for us; in order to correct the Ekklesia and the nations and humble them in preparation for the coming of Messiah the Christ!
12:25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house [Spiritual AND Physical Israel/Judah], will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.
12:26 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying.
Today’s Spiritual Ekklesia, teaches that the time is close but not yet, some even teaching falsely that they will have another 3 1/2 years to do an Elijah work AFTER the coming Mideast peace deal and BEFORE the tribulation begins.
Because they reject the scriptures for their own false traditions, they will be taken by surprise (1 Thess 5:3, Mt 24:15)
We worship and obey men and corporations in spiritual adultery against our espoused Husband; and his righteous jealousy is engendering a righteous wrath against our idolatry!
12:27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the times that are far off.
12:28 Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.
Here the Word of the Lord; If we are zealous in our love for the Eternal, to live by every Word of God, he will shower his blessings upon us. If we compromise and turn from living by every Word of God to do as we think right, we will be sternly corrected!
In this latter day, Israel [primarily the British, American, Dutch and Scandinavian peoples] and Judah are receiving the blessings that God promised the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
We have been given choice blessings and we have responded by filling our lands with abominations and continual rebellion against the Word of our God.
Therefore, hear the warnings of God as recorded by Moses.
God will give Israel and Judah one last victory after which [if they do not repent and turn from their sin] they will be cast in to severe correction as soon as Peace and Safety is declared (1 Thess 5:3).
The Blessings for Obedience to every Word of God
We have been blessed and made the chief peoples on the earth beginning our rise to dominance in 1630 A.D. Now God is preparing to correct the nations of Israel and Judah one last time in preparation for the coming of Messiah the Christ.
Deuteronomy 28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
28:2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
28:3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. 28:4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 28:5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
28:6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. 28:7 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
28:8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
28:9 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways. 28:10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.
28:11 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
28:12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: 28:14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
The curses for disobedience of the Word of God
Once Islamic Extremism in the Middle East is crushed and a regional peace deal is about to be or is achieved; a man will be set up in the Vatican doing miracles, and when he goes to the Holy Place within about 75 days after being set up, the correction of the nations will begin with the occupation of Jerusalem and will spread from there to include all nations over 42 months.
Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half [42 prophetic 30 day months or 1260 days]; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
This is a long list of the horrors that will come upon us for the overspreading of our many abominations; which curses are already beginning.
Deuteronomy 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
28:16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. 28:17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store [harvest and storage]. 28:18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 28:19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
28:20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
28:21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. 28:22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption [wasting away], and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.
28:23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. 28:24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
28:25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth. 28:26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.
28:27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. 28:28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:
28:29 And thou shalt grope at noonday [in confusion of mind], as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.
28:30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.
28:31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.
28:32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.
28:33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway: 28:34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. 28:35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.
28:36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone. 28:37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.
28:38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it. 28:39 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms [pests] shall eat them. 28:40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.
28:41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity. 28:42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.
28:43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. 28:44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
28:45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:
28:46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever. 28:47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;
Because we will not zealously serve God during the abundance of God’s blessings, we will be given over to this curse of severe correction to humble us.
28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
28:49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand; 28:50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
28:51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.
28:52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
28:53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:
28:54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate [meek and timid], his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:
28:55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.
28:56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,
28:57 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.
28:58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;
28:59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful [great], and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.
28:60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.
28:61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
28:62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God.
28:63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
28:64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
28:65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind: 28:66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:
28:67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
All of these were fulfilled in the past and a final correction is now almost upon us
Right now the nations of Israel/Judah, both physical and spiritual, think obedience to God is a little thing. Today the Israelite nations [including Spiritual Israel] are immersed wholeheartedly in sin and are about to receive God’s just correction in its fullness.
Today’s Spiritual Ekklesia continues to idolize men and false traditions; strangely counting their espousal to Christ as meaning that they are to obey lovers [idols of men] who claim to come in his name, rather than to keep their commitment to obey their God and to live by every Word of God.
Today’s brethren are relying on their false traditions and corporate idols of men, instead of living by every Word of God.
Today’s Ekklesia of the New Covenant called out, is now facing the strong correction that Moses warned us of and which Jesus Christ warned us of in Revelation 3:14-22.
God condemns foolish prophets who prophesy from their own imaginations and not from the Word of God. This covers most of the self-proclaimed prophets and prophetic teachings in today’s Spiritual Ekklesia. They prophesy out of their own imaginations or from false traditions; often saying the opposite of the scriptures. In the long term neither they nor their false prophecies will stand.
Ezekiel 13:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 13:2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts,
Today none of the major corporate entities of the Spiritual Ekklesia have any zeal to keep the Word of God and they lean to their own ways or to the ways of their idols of men. They are spiritually wretched and blind while thinking that they know it all, and in reality knowing nothing as they ought to know, being ignorant of both sound doctrine and prophetic understanding.
. . . Hear ye the word of the LORD; 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
Today’s teachers have not taught sound doctrine nor have they taught any zeal to live by every Word of God; instead they teach the people to be zealous to exalt idols of men and organizations above the Word of God!
For shame brethren, we ought to follow and serve Almighty God and not idols of men and corporate organizations!
13:4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 13:5 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.
Today’s leaders in the Spiritual Ekklesia have not stood in the breach to teach zeal for God and his Word and they have no understanding of prophecy or sound doctrine; teaching lies in the name of the LORD! They prophesy the lie that their own ways are righteous and that following men will bring safety, and the people hope that their false prophecies of safety will be confirmed.
13:6 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.
Today the majority of the Spiritual Ekklesia are deceived into following idols of men above any zeal to live by every Word of God.
13:7 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?
Almighty God is against the false prophets of the nations and he is against the false doctrines and false prophecy of today’s Spiritual Ekklesia, both the individuals and the organizations, who teach falsely contrary to the Word of God out of their own imaginations.
13:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.
False prophets and organizations that have no zeal for the Word of God and also lean on their own imaginations on prophecy and doctrine as well as the various people and organizations that teach falsely: Will be severely corrected in great tribulation and if they do not repent wholeheartedly, they will NOT be in the resurrection to spirit.
13:9 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.
The teaching that there will be 3 1/2 years AFTER a Mideast peace deal, BEFORE the tribulation begins; will deceive many into the very tribulation they fear! They teach peace when war is at hand and they teach that the Lord delays for a few more years when God’s correction is coming upon them as soon as peace is declared (1 Thess 5:3, Mat 24:15)!
13:10 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:
These false prophecies conceived in human pride and imagination will surely fail, and the Word of God shall surely prevail. Their peace will be consumed by God’s correction and these false teachers will be humbled before Almighty God.
The storm of war and tribulation will fall upon them like a torrential rain mixed with great hailstones.
13:11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter [The thoughts and imaginations of men.], that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
When they fall they will be asked why they did not build with the Word of God instead of with the vain imaginations of men!
13:12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
Jesus Christ will sternly correct the false teachers of today’s Spiritual Ekklesia and their followers along with their false teachings, in his fury at their spiritual adulteries against him.
13:13 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.
God will utterly destroy the wall of false teachings, false doctrines and false prophecies; of those who reject any zeal to keep their Baptismal Covenant to live by every Word of God.
13:14 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.
The false prophets of today’s Spiritual Ekklesia, and this includes any who falsely teach contrary to any part of the Word of God; will be severely corrected if they do not quickly and sincerely repent.
13:15 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; 13:16 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.
Lest there be any attempt to apply this to the past and say that it is not for us today, God then addresses the latter day descendants of Israel/Judah directly.
13:17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters [descendants of] of thy people [today’s Israel/Judah and the Spiritual Ekklesia], which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them,
LINK: For interlinear version
The women [churches] of the descendants of Israel, including most of today’s Spiritual Ekklesia groups; are typified as adulterous women who adorn themselves to deceive.
13:18 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows [LINK: devices for divination, imaginations, false teachings] to all armholes, and make kerchiefs [Veils of false humility to deceive] upon the head of every [person, leader, elder] stature to hunt [to deceive people to follow idols of men and not live by every Word of God] souls!
Like an adulterous woman entices men to come to her, false teachers hunt the people of God to deceive them into following idols of men, turning them away from any Christ-like zeal to live by every Word of God!
The false religions in this world as well as most of today’s Spiritual Ekklesia cannot save anyone, not even themselves. Only the Eternal can save! Follow the whole Word of God the only Savior; who alone can save!
. . . Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
False teachers pollute the Word of God, compromising with the Word; for the reward of personal gain.
13:19 And will ye pollute [Many twist the Word of God to exalt the words of men, for personal gain.] 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?
Jesus Christ will deliver the people from the false teachers of all religions that do not zealously serve and live by every Word of God! The Eternal in his fury will destroy all false teachings, imaginations and divination’s including ALL false prophecies and false doctrines; and the whole Word of God SHALL PREVAIL!
13:20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows [divination’s, imaginations, false teachings], 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.
13:21 Your kerchiefs [false humility] 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.
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: 13:23 Therefore ye shall see [no more will men teach the imaginations of their own hearts.] 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.
