IS ALLAH THE SAME GOD AS THE GOD OF THE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS ? “MUSLIMS, JEWS AND CHRISTIANS WORSHIP THE SAME GOD”

Comments 6 Standard

The title above is straight from America’s World History Books taught in every public school. It is also spoken by Muslims so we would, as they request, worship no other god but Allah, but is this the same God? Are the words we hear true? We will go straight to the source to discover the truth. No opinions, no theories, no lies. We will go straight to the quran/koran and the bible and see if these words are  true.

Not knowing the truth is detrimental to your life, the generations to come and the future of your country. The masses are told and the children are taught that Allah of Islam is the same God of the ‘People of the book’ aka Christians and Jews. It is important that you make sure you know the truth because lack of knowledge can destroy your very soul. Please tell your children, your grandchildren and your family the truth I will share below. I have seen much confusion on this and knowing the truth will clear up any confusion. There is a scheme to turn all to Allah and since so many Christians and church goers don’t read or study the bible, they will never know the truth – they will be those in the last days that will be easily deceived, but today we can change that.

To accept and believe in Allah as  the one true God is to reject God’s Son

The Quran says that Allah has no son, in fact, it is blasphemy to say he has a son
Allah says that Jesus was only a messenger; a son of Mary. Their book teaches that Jesus was a prophet sent from Allah to deceive Christians, that Jesus was never crucified, it was only made to appear that way. Quran Surah (Chapter) 171,5:35,43:81-82, 30, 4:157, 4:142,4:159

That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not: Verily, the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them. And there is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus before his death. And on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness The Christian say, ‘The Messiah is the son of God.’ These are but baseless assertions made in earlier times by those who deny the truth. May God destroy them 9:30

The bible tells us that anyone who denies that God has a Son has the spirit of Antichrist, anyone who does not acknowledge the truth of Jesus is a deceiver and the antichrist: Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist–denying the Father and the Son. But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here. I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 1 John 2:22, 1 John 4:3 and 2 John 1:7

• 1 John 2:22 And who is a liar? Anyone who says that Jesus is not the Christ. Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is an antichrist.
• 1 John 4:3 But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here.
• 2 John 1:7 I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world. They deny that Jesus Christ came in a real body. Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist.

We were forewarned of this

In 2 Corinthians 11:3-5 and Galatians 1:6-9 we are told to beware, lest we also be deceived as Eve was, of anyone who preaches another Jesus or if you receive a different spirit that you have not received or a different gospel- DO NOT ACCEPT IT, DO NOT PUT UP WITH IT. Beware of those who pervert the gospel – even if an angel from heaven preach another gospel to you, let him be accursed. Listen carefully : if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed!

Does God have a Son?

Let’s stop and go back to the scripture of the prophets and Torah – before Jesus was born. What did Israel know? What was written in their holy scriptures?

1. Solomon tells us in Proverbs 30:4 that God has a son (fulfilled Matt 27:54, 1 John 5:13, Rev 2:18, John 3:19, John 1:1-3)
2. Isaiah 7:14 tells us a virgin will conceive and His name will mean ‘God with us” Immanuel, He will be a ruler and a priest (fulfilled Matthew 1:23)
3. David said God has a Son in Psalm 2:4-12 and His inheritance would be the ends of the earth (Matthew 1:23)
4. Isaiah 9:6-7 tells us a Son will be given, His name will be called wonderful, counselor, mighty God, everlasting father, prince of peace

What do we know about this Son? What was foretold before His coming?

1. He would be born in Bethlehem. Micah 5:2 (fulfilled Matthew 2:1)
2. He will come riding upon a donkey, He is just and bringing salvation Zechariah 9:9(fulfilled John 12. Matthew 21)
3. The price they appraised Him at was 30 pieces of silver Zach 11:12 (fulfilled Matthew 27:3. Matthew 24:14-16)
4. The money was to be cast to the potter in the house of the Lord Zech 11:13 (fulfilled Matthew 27:10)
5. His hands would be wounded in the house of his friends. Zechariah 13:6 (fulfilled Mark 15:20, John 19, John 20:26-27)
6. He would be oppressed, afflicted, would open not his mouth as a lamb to the slaughter Isaiah 53:7 ( fulfilled Mark 15, John 19, Luke 23)
7. His grave was with the wicked and with the rich in death because he had done no violence neither was their deceit in His mouth Isaiah 53;9 (Matthew 27, Mark 15)
8. His hands and feet would be pierced. Psalm 22:12 (fulfilled Mark 15:20, John 19, John 20:26-27)
9. Daniel prophesied the exact days until his triumphant arrival. March 445BC – April 32AD) Daniel 9:25

Chuck Misler did the math on these 8 prophecies and the chances of one man fulfilling all eight prophecies 1 in 100000000000000000000000000000 – that’s 28 zeros behind the 10. That would be like putting a mark on one silver dollar and mix it with others – enough to fill the entire earth all the way up to the moon. The chances of the one silver dollar you pick up to be the one with the mark on it is the same chance that one man – Jesus Christ- 1 in 100000000000000000000000000000 would fulfill all 8 of the above prophecies. (Cosmic Codes by Chuck Misler) There are only 8 prophecies listed above, but there are over 300 prophecies in the Old Testament of Jesus.

Daniel prophesied the exact days until his triumphant arrival. Daniel 9:25
“Know therefore and understand,
That from the going forth of the command
To restore and build Jerusalem (March 445 BC)
Until Messiah the Prince, (April 32AD)
There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; (477 years=68.14 weeks- difference is days March 14- to entry in April)
The street shall be built again, and the wall,
Even in troublesome times.
26 “And after the sixty-two weeks
Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
And the people of the prince who is to come
Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”

God loves the Jewish people : “ I have loved you with an everlasting love;Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.4 Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt,
O virgin of Israel! Jer 31:1-4
Allah hates/despises the Jews : 5:60-65Say “Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell-fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world). The Jews say: “Allah’s hand is tied up.” Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief. And if only the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) had believed (in Muhammad SAW) and warded off evil (sin, ascribing partners to Allah) and had become Al-Muttaqun (the pious – see V.2:2) We would indeed have blotted out their sins and admitted them to Gardens of pleasure (in Paradise). Anyone who does not believe, Allah has put a disease in their hearts : http://quran.com/search?q=disease+heart

ARE MUSLIMS PEACE LOVING? Verses from the Quran: “Unbelievers are your enemies” Surah 4:101 “Rouse them to fight for they are without understanding. 8:65 You cannot have a prisoner of war until you have subdued the land 8:67. You must fight all who fight allah 2S196And slay them wherever ye catch 2S191 Fight them and allah will punish them by your hands 9:14 Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing that is good for you, and that you love a think that is bad for you. 2S216 Fight the cause of Allah to him who fighteth in the cause of allah soon shall we give him a reward of great value 474 Fight allahs cause 484 Seize them and slay them wherever you get them, we have provided you with a clear argument against them. 491 fight those who believe not in allah nor the law even if they are people of the book, until they pay the jizyah with willing submission and feel subdued 929 when you meet unbelievers in fight, smite at their necks, at length when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly on them. Those who are slain in the way of a. he will never let their deeds be lost Surah 473-4. Allah loves those who fight his cause Surah 61:4 and the people of the book , did a cast terror in their hearts, so some you slew, and some you made prisoners. Suah 31 “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment Surah 5 33
Jesus taught:  “ I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! YOU MUST WARN EVERYONE AROUND YOU – it may seen insignificant to many, but the souls of many are about to fall to eternal destruction.

GOD SAVE ISRAEL! GOD BLESS ISRAEL! GOD SAVE YOUR PEOPLE AND MAY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN DECEIVED OPEN THEIR EYES AND FIND THEIR SALVATION IN CHRIST JESUS, THE SON OF GOD, IMMANUEL.

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSEOVER WOULD BELIEVE IN HIM WOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, John 3:16

A MESSAGE TO THE NATIONS – the Lord says “YOU NO LONGER KNOW ME”  Jeremiah 1-9 Do you Know my King?

Comments 2 Standard

Truth has perished; it has disappeared from their mouth. Jeremiah 7:28b
The people no longer know the requirements of the Lord. Jeremiah 8:7b
They reject the word of the Lord and the scribes lying pen produces falsehood Jer 7:8-9
“YOU LIVE IN A WORLD OF DECEPTION AND REFUSE TO KNOW ME” Jer 9:6

               God told Jeremiah he would be a prophet to the nations. The message was directed at the nation of Judah, but as I read the words, my heart trembles. It’s as if the words are going out today to all the Nations. We have become like Judah, we are all show. “In God we trust” is on our currency. Our children pledge daily that we are “One nation under God” but we refuse to let His name be spoken in our schools. We punish our people for praying publicly to the Lord. We refuse to listen to His words. We have allowed this terrible sin to spread like a disease throughout our country. Prayer is forbidden – who did this? One nation under God we proclaim – like Judah, our face is before Him, but we have turned our backs on Him.

Judah watched her northern sister Samaria, Israel fall to sin and then ultimately destruction. The land was ravaged and the people were taken into captivity. Both Judah and Israel began as a nation under God. They had rulers who had hearts for the Lord. They prospered in everything they did, they were powerful and the nations feared them. Their rulers had supernatural wisdom and protection. The people of the land served the Lord God and honored His sanctuary. (Just like America!) As the years passed, the people became lazy, fat, living in over abundance and luxury. Their hearts had drifted far from God. To make their ways more acceptable, they made up their own ways and contradicted God’s word to fit their new ways and new lifestyles. They still followed the traditions of their ancestors in worship, temple attendance, rituals, etc., but their hearts were far from the Lord. They no longer knew Him. They brought in practices from the nations around them, they told the Lord, “We will go where we want; we will no longer come to You”   and yet in all this, they still proclaimed “ We are innocent, surely the Lord will turn His anger from us for we have not sinned but God told them that their ways were always changing.. They had no heart for the orphan, the oppressed, the hurting, the helpless. In all their luxury and blessings, they had forgotten the Lord. They no longer knew Him. 

They are fat and sleek,
    and there is no limit to their wicked deeds.
They refuse to provide justice to orphans
    and deny the rights of the poor.
 Should I not punish them for this?” says the Lord.
    “Should I not avenge myself against such a nation?
 A horrible and shocking thing
    has happened in this land—
 the prophets give false prophecies,
    and the priests rule with an iron hand.
Worse yet, my people like it that way!
    But what will you do when the end comes? Jer 5:28

    The Lord said “ My people are fools; they do not know Me. They are foolish children, without understanding. They are skilled in doing what is evil, but they do not know how to do what is good…. They have contradicted the Lord and said “ It won’t happen, harm won’t come to us; we won’t see sword or faminebut beware!!!! The prophets words are only wind, the Lord’s word is not in them. Hear this; They have eyes, but they don’t see, they have ears but they don’t hear.

A dream:      A year of two ago I had a dream. There was a horrible, wicked and conniving attorney. He was dressed in a dark suit , he had files of paperwork and years of knowledge behind him. I could see Him going back and forth telling another attorney something. He was always behind the people whispering in their ear. He never spoke for them, but he was the behind the scenes man who did all the legwork on the case. He would whisper his findings secretly in their ears, he brought all his arguments to their thoughts. He knew every trick, the way around every argument and knew how to manipulate the words  so they would win the case. It was almost as if he would listen in to the conversation, go do the research, spy on the opposing attorney and report back to his side. He was hard at work behind the scene of this team who was trying to fight for something. He would listen in at the meetings, leave to do research and come back with a hard hitting plan that would undoubtedly win. For each obstacle they faced, this wicked attorney had the ammunition and words to win. He was unstoppable, he knew the plans of the other side and would prepare a case to knock it down before the words were every made known to his side. He was a spirit. No one could see him but me. The attorney and his team thought these ideas were their own, their own intelligence, and their own arguments, but they didn’t realize it was completely orchestrated by this wicked spirit who was giving them all the information and arguments they needed to win the case. The case that I was watching was called Roe vs. Wade, I could hear the attorney’s speaking their names in the meeting. I woke up and felt as if I had been through the entire trial watching this wicked entity scheme and manipulate every word and every argument. This is the enemy our nation is fighting. This is the enemy the world bows down to. Is it in fear? Cowardness? Pride? Or is it that we don’t know our God anymore?

We have made our own ways, we have contradicted God’s laws. Our faces are before Him as we proclaim that we are ‘Christian’ but our backs have turned on our maker. Many of today’s Christians have bowed down to the world and it’s ways. We are lukewarm! Yuck –  we judge, we gossip, we look down on others, we stay in our own little church hierarchy groups, no wonder no one want’s to go to church anymore.  Are we any different than the world – I think worse because we make excuses for our ways under the title of being a christian. I’m not talking to the world – this message is for those who call themselves Christians. We have chosen the World ways instead of God’s ways. We show up at church and our bible meetings just like the people of Judah did over 2000 years ago. We have made our own image of what we think God is and what we think God should and should not accept. Don’t you know that God’s word stands forever? The earth beneath you may disappear, but His words stand forever. He is outside of time, the argument of what year it is, is no different than it was in the past. Sin is sin. That doesn’t change because of the year we are in. Who do we think we are? We are just a speck of time traveler passing through – we think we are so advanced but outside of time – does our year and do our advances really change God’s word?

YOU HAVE NOT LATELY CALLED ME “ MY FATHER” I THOUGHT, SURELY YOU WOULD RETURN TO ME, BUT YOU DIDN’T. YOU DIDN’T RETURN TO ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART – ONLY IN PRETENSE” but Look!, their ear is uncircumcised so they cannot pay attention. See! They no longer delight in God’s word, they find no pleasure in it. God told them to stop at the crossways and look, ask Him which way to go, but the people shouted “WE WILL NOT LISTEN” , they paid no attention to the Lord’s word. And then YOU COME AND STAND BEFORE ME in My house and say “ We are delivered, so we can continue doing all these detestable acts”, but the Lord says “ I have spoken to you time and time again, but you won’t listen, I have called to you, but you wouldn’t answer

Did you hear that?  Do you hear Him knocking at the door of your heart? I heard Charles Stanley say that we have ignored the Lord’s knocking on our heart for so long, that we no longer hear it. When He wakes you up in the middle of the night – are you too tired for Him? Are you like the bride in the Song of Songs who says – not now, I don’t want to get up out of bed to answer the door – even though I love you? Do you see your bible sitting untouched in the same place and you know God wants you to open it up and read it, but you say – not now, another time? I think there are forces we do not see that fight against our walk with Him. Have you ever walked by a bag of chips , the tv, or the computer and felt that same pull away from it? No – it’s only when we are trying to make time with the Lord – funny how much time we have to be on the internet, facebook, watch tv – but somehow there is never enough time for God – I’m convinced there is some kind of force involved in this. It really doesn’t take much – reach over, pick it up, open it- pray! And read – y ya! That’s it, it’s really not that complicated and it doesn’t take hours out of your day (for some it does) but God just wants you to come back to Him- He loves you so much and I saw Him reaching out to His people – as if each one of you were His only son. So amazing! It cannot be described!

 Secret Key – from Jeremiah 6:10- Delighting in the word of God is the secret to hearing Him, it’s the secret to understanding Him. When the people no longer heard the Lord, they no longer had sound judgement because they did not delight in the Word of God.

   In Corey Russel’s book, Ancient Paths , he says “The crisis of our day is the product of many factors, but the one I want to highlight……is the loss of intimate communion with the Word of God. This fundamental breakdown within the church has now permeated society….Truth has become a matter of individual ideology and preference, subject only to political correctness…… I believe that rediscovering the ancient paths will require us to leave behind our over familiarity with the bible, along with our tendency to discount the words on the page, so that we may truly feel it’s weight again.”

 “THE PRIEST RULE WITH THEIR OWN AUTHORITY, MY PEOPLE LOVE IT LIKE  THIS” This is going on today!!! Do you see it? Do you see it? The churches and the priests make their own rules overriding God’s word. Does anyone see this? We have become like Judah. Each man  has made his own way, we are just like the Israelites  who lived 2500 years ago, we too love it this way.

     The fear of the Lord is the beginning of understanding. Did you ever wonder what that means? We all want understanding, but how can we have the fear of the Lord ? Can  I say, okay, I fear the Lord and boom! I will be given understanding? I have found the key and foundation to the fear of the Lord. It all begins with knowing Him. Knowing Him begins by learning who He is by searching for Him in the scripture, crying out to Him and walking with Him.  This was Judah’s ultimate sin – They no longer knew Him. This is America’s sin today – We no longer know Him.

 Consider the sins of Judah, The Lord called them out on their sins: (do any sound familiar?)

 Are you called to be a gatekeeper?
Do they hear your voice?
I want you to think about this – if the world doesn’t hate you yet, are you really stepping out?  Jesus said blessed are those Who are persecuted for His name sake. Rejoice in the world’s rejection of you,  you will be blessed. The Lord will be with you, these words you can trust. The World hates Him, does it hate you? Have you made your own ways? Your own rules? Your own god? If you are trying to make everyone happy by changing God’s ways to suit the people around you, you have become just like these evil priests in Judah. They didn’t not heal the people, they only covered the wound with false words. Stand up, Be strong and courageous. You weapons are mighty before God to defeat every wicked entity that comes against God’s people. Stop following the crowd and be ready for extreme persecution, for the Lord is about to shake things up, but remember this – in Him and in Him alone is victory – wether life or death, it doesn’t matter – all that matters is that He is glorified. We look forward to that day when every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Amen

Three Secret Keys – may God give you understanding:

  1.  Do you fear Him? – That’s the key to understanding
  2.  Do you know Him? – That’s the key and foundation to the fear of the Lord
  3. Do you delight in His Word? – That’s the key to hearing Him

Hear the Word of the Lord:   

“I will pour out my terrible fury on this place. Its people, animals, trees, and crops will be consumed by the unquenchable fire of my anger.

 “But my people would not listen to me. They kept doing whatever they wanted, following the stubborn desires of their evil hearts. They went backward instead of forward.  From the day your ancestors left Egypt until now, I have continued to send my  My servants, the prophets—day in and day out. But my people have not listened to me or even tried to hear. They have been stubborn and sinful—even worse than their ancestors.

 “Tell them all this, but do not expect them to listen. Shout out your warnings, but do not expect them to respond. Say to them, ‘This is the nation whose people will not obey the Lord their God and who refuse to be taught. Truth has vanished from among them; it is no longer heard on their lips Shave your head in mourning, and weep alone on the mountains. For the Lord has rejected and forsaken this generation that has provoked his fury.’ Jer 6

You have brought this punishment upon yourself by abandoning the Lord your God. Your own evil will discipline you.Think about it and see how evil and bitter it is to abandon the Lord your God and to have no fear of Me. Even if you wash with lye and use a great amount of soap, the stain of your sin is still in front of Me. Jeremiah 2

If they had known the Father, they would have known the Son.

 Jesus said “All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.” 
Luke 10:22

    Ezekiel 13 addresses two people: the lying prophets of Israel and the lying daughters who prophesied out of their own heart. Ezekiel 13 is also a message for each one of us. Are the words we hear God’s truth? God’s absolute truth must be our foundation. We must make sure the teachings we have heard are truth so we don’t build our lives on lies.

False Prophets and white washed walls   

        The prophets were to protect the people by building a wall of defense around them. This wall would protect them from their enemies. Was this literal? Figurative? Or both?  Whatever the answer, the message is clear – the prophets were not building a sturdy and safe wall of protection for the people.  This left an open door for the enemy to come in and attack. Scripture uses the word ‘white wash’ or a slimy mortar as the filing agent the prophets used to fix the breaks in the wall. Instead of building their wall of protection with a true and fortified defense, they only covered up the cracks.  They tried to make everything look right, saying their words were from God, but they were only covering up the truth. What was the truth? The breaks in the walls were still there even though they hid them. This white wash seems to symbolize the lies and false teachings of these prophets. Building our foundation on lies is like covering the breaks in the wall or building a house on sand. The scripture reminds me of the parable of the man who built his house on the rock and the man who built his house on the sand. One house crumbled down and one house stood firm. Their structures were the same, but the foundation beneath them caused them to either stand firm or crumble.

     Notice-when the defense or wall was weak (unstable with cracks), the enemy came in. In Genesis 4:6, the Lord warns Cain

 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.

      Sin is always crouching at our door to overtake us. What is the foundation you rely on? Are you relying on the whitewash of the walls or are you fully grounded and rooted in the Word of God as in Jeremiah 17:7-8 and unshakable? Have you allowed the desires of the world and worries to come in and steal God’s Word from your heart?

    The false prophets prophesied of their own heart. The Hebrew meaning of the word heart is: feelings, reflection, inner man and thinking. In other words, the words were made up prophesies that did not come from God. This same thing is happening today. Ezekiel’s words may be ancient but the message stands forever. Remember back in Jeremiah we were taught that if a prophet prophesies Peace! Good Tidings! Money! And the Whoo Hoo’s – we are to consider it, but don’t believe it until it happens. On the other hand, when we hear a warning we are to listen and take heed.

            The true work of the prophet in Ezekiel 13:

  1. To fortify the walls, fill in the breaks and make it a strong defense from enemies
  2. To protect and warn the people
  3. To keep the people safe

           The False prophets of Ezekiel 13

  1. They claim “The Lord saith” but the Lord did not speak to them
  2. They expected God to make their claims come true, hoping the Lord would cause it to happen
  3. Covered the truth with lies building the walls with whitewash, a slimy mortar that wouldn’t hold. Foolishness
  4. They envisioned futility and devise lies
  5. Made people hope in their false predictions
  6. They were like foxes in the desert- to devour and destroy. They were sly and seducing
  7. Seduced God’s people with false promises and good tidings- Peace! When there was no peace. Prosperity! Peace! Money! (Coexist?!)  
  8. They caused the people to wander far from God.

     The lies the people believed and listened to would soon be their downfall. Doesn’t seem fair, does it? The sheep were punished because they followed the wrong shepherds.  We are each individually responsible to consider and search out the truth. You are responsible to search the bible, to seek God and make sure the teachings you have been taught are true and reliable. Claiming ignorance before the throne won’t work. He knows you.  And know this- just because you see miracles in the way you do things doesn’t mean it is the hand of God. We are warned the antichrist will come with signs and miracles also, this is why knowing the truth of God’s Word is so important. In Jeremiah, the people prayed and worshipped the Queen of Heaven. When they did, the people lived in peace and had all they had. Jeremiah warned them by the Word of God to stop but they refused. Their reply was – We have been worshipping the Queen of Heaven all these years and we have lived in health and prosperity and we won’t change. The people continued to mix pagan rituals and brought them into the temple. I wonder if we have done the same. I know there might be traditions engrained in my life that are not of God, or maybe there are things I should be doing that I’m not. The days are no different now than the days of Ezekiel or Jeremiah . Imagine throwing away one of your family traditions, that’s how the people in Ezekiel’s day felt. They went to the temple, feeling all holy and righteous; they would bow down to the Sun god and perform pagan rituals at the gates of the temple. Am I talking about a certain religion? No- it’s a warning to consider all our teachings, everything we hear, and ask for discernment. There are many tv preachers that have mixed up God’s Word , just be careful. God promises us that if we Seek, we will Find. If we knock, He will open the door. If we Ask, He will answer. Seek, Ask, Knock – find the truth.

 LYING WOMEN Prophets

      Besides the false prophets, The Lord also spoke against false prophetesses who would prophesy from their own heart. They sewed magic charms to attach to their sleeves and made veils for their heads as they searched for lost spirits. I’ve read different views on this, so this is my take on it. Read it for yourself and ask God to give you discernment. I believe there are many lessons and many layers to scripture, so maybe there is another message for you written within the words.

      Of course, the first thing we think of is fortune tellers, sorcerers, witches and such. This may be true, but I think these woman were hidden and blended among the Holy people. They seemed like holy godly woman. They claimed to hear from the Lord.  Scripture is clear that magic and sorcery is a sin, but these women mixed it up so you couldn’t tell Holy from evil. It was mixed. Does the bible say we can’t sew something on our sleeve? Uhhh no. Does the bible say we can’t wear a veil? Uhhhh, I don’t think so. ……and so the lying women deceived the people into using beads, charms, veils and other rituals that caused the people to wander far from God. You see, its key to ask yourself  ‘Does this honor God or does this take my focus off God?’

     We’re safe here, right? Well, I don’t know. Do we have magic charms? Crystals? Dream catchers? magic charms on your bracelet? necklace?Idols we hold on to for good luck? You didn’t like that one did you- oh no, I heard you making excuses for what you had. That’s exactly what the people of Israel did. “What’s the big deal Lord? It’s just a pillow on my sleeve, and so what If I chase after dead souls” yea, dead souls/ spirits they chased after. They searched out for the lost souls- the wording is different in different scriptures. If this is true, let’s look at what they did. They were calling out for people who had died.  God said:

 ” Why don’t you search out for the souls who are living!?!?!?!?! Why don’t you save the lives of the souls that are coming to you!?!?!?!!?”

                How would you answer that?

     As the prophets above were referred to as foxes, so the people who came to the prophetesses were their prey to devour and destroy. The Lord said that the lying daughters who prophesied from their own heart had made the hearts of the righteous sad and strengthened the hand of the wicked. “They made the hearts of the righteous sad”

       When we believe and trust in false words our wall of protection is no protection at all. It looks like it, but it’s not. Because they listened to false prophets, their protection was gone and now they were prey to their enemy. Believing in wrong teaching is dangerous and detrimental to your eternal life. You decide. Do you want to keep listening and believing everything that sounds so good or will you let God’s word pierce your heart and change you. When I watched Billy Graham last week, his words were so powerful. The message of the cross and repentance never gets old. Each day it’s a brand new message. Remember the Cross today and what the Lord did for you. Remember the blood that was shed for our wretched ways.  Decide to change and be Holy as God, your creator, created you to be.

   Lord,
    Search me and see if there is anyway that is not right, if  there is any way in me that is not in line with your scripture. Give me discernment between what is Holy and what is not Holy. Give me a heart like you O Lord, to love what you love and despise what you despise. Help me put away anything that is an abomination before you . Open my eyes so I can see the truth and that each one of us would save the souls that come to us.
In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen

Hear the Word of the Lord
Ezekiel 13

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel, that prophesy, and say thou unto them, that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear the word of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord God, Woe unto the foolish Prophets that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing. O Israel, thy Prophets are like the foxes in the waste places.

Ye have not risen up in the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel, to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. They have seen vanity, and lying divination, saying, The Lord saith it, and the Lord hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word of their prophecy.  Have ye not seen a vain vision? and have ye not spoken a lying divination? ye say, The Lord saith it, albeit I have not spoken. Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Because ye have spoken vanity and have seen lies, therefore behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God,

And mine hand shall be upon the Prophets that see vanity, and 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.10 And therefore, because they have deceived my people, saying,Peace, and there was no peace: and one built up a wall, and behold, the others daubed it with untempered mortar,

11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered mortar, that it shall fall: for there shall come a great shower, and I will send hailstones, which shall cause it to fall, and a stormy wind shall break it.12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, I will cause a stormy wind to break forth in my wrath, and a great shower shall be in mine anger, and hailstones in mine indignation to consume it.14 So I will destroy the wall that ye have daubed with untempered mortar, 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.

15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered mortar, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither the daubers thereof,16 To wit, the Prophets of Israel, which prophesy upon Jerusalem, and see visions of peace for it, and there is no peace, saith the Lord God.

17 Likewise thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart: and prophesy thou against them, and say,

18 Thus saith the Lord God, Woe unto the women that sow pillows under all armholes, and make veils upon the head of everyone that standeth up, to hunt souls: will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye give life to the souls that come unto you?19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley, and for pieces of bread to slay the souls of them that should not die, and to give life to the souls that should not live, in lying to my people, that hear your lies? 20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will have to do with your pillows, wherewith ye hunt the souls to make them to flee, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them to flee. 21 Your veils also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hands to be hunted, and ye shall know that I am the Lord.22 Because with your 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,23 Therefore ye shall see 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.
