Jeremiah 23: 19 – 31
Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind; it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord shall not return, untill he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart; in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.
I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran; I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
am I a God at hand, saith the lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord. I have heared what the prophets said, who prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who think to cause my people to forget my name for Ba’al.
The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully . What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the lord.
Is not my word like a fire? saith the lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
Therefore, behold , I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbor.
Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
We are not, as so many, peddling the word of God. ( 2 Corinthians 2: 17)
