 2 "Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination, 'Hear the word of the LORD,'

 3 Thus says the Lord GOD, Woe to the foolish prophets, who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

 10 Because they have seduced my people saying, 'Peace!' When there is no peace.1 And one builds a wall, and lo, others [false prophets] daub it with untempered mortar, [Peace is the fruit of righteousness, which is quietness and confident trust, (unquestionable assurance), forever. Isa 32:17. Until we have been purified and freed from all sin, there is no peace or righteousness. See the definition of righteousness in 1 John 3:7's commentary and footnote to understand what it means and what it takes to become righteous and have peace.]

 22 Because with lies you have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad, and have strengthened the hands of the wicked, so that he does not turn from his wicked way, by [falsely] promising him life.3

 14 Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets prophesy lies in my name. I did not send them, neither have I commanded them, nor spoken to them.1 They prophesy to you a false vision and divination, worthless from the deceit of their heart.

Isaiah 56:10-11

 10 His watchmen are blind, they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber. [A watchman is supposed to stay awake and warn of the enemy approaching, but the leaders of Christianity are so deep in sleep that they don't recognize that they themselves have been duped by the devil, so that they are masquerading as ministers of righteousness, preaching no-consequence sin, while their place of will-worship is filled with unclean birds, (demons). The ministers of Christianity are the blind guides the Lord warned us about, not taught by the Lord's voice and light, not perfected by the Lord, not gifted with an authorized ministry, not sent by the Lord, and not speaking words from the Spirit of the Lord; rather, they speak from their carnal minds, the nature of death, and preach their vain opinions from the imagination of their evil hearts.]

 11 Yes, they are greedy dogs who can never have enough; they are shepherds who cannot understand; they all look to their own way, every one for his own monetary gain, from his quarter.1 [Not only do the leaders of Christianity not understand anything they purport to represent, they want you to pay them for their false teachings: they want a salary, your contributions, your "offerings," or your "love gifts that they solicit." They can never get enough. They are greedy; they are covetous. They have fallen in the way of Balaam, preaching for hire.]

Jeremiah 23:16-17

 16 Thus says the Lord of hosts, "Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you; they make you vain; they speak a vision of their own heart, and not from the mouth of the LORD.

 17 They still say to those who despise me, 'The LORD has said that you shall have peace;' and they say to everyone who walks after the imagination of his own heart, 'No evil shall come upon you.'2

 21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran [ahead of me]. I have not spoken to them, yet they have prophesied. [Only follow; do not run ahead of the Lord's leading you exactly where to go and what to do and say. From the Word of the Lord within: " I was surely sent; as I was sent, so too must you be. Master following. You do as God has directed and only that; we do as He tells us. Everyone hear what the Spirit says; this you do." George Fox described those who run ahead : "Those who run before their guide are vagabonds and wanderers."]

 22 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.

 25 I have heard what the prophets said, who prophesy lies in my name, saying, 'I have dreamed, I have dreamed.'

 26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? Yes, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

 27 Who think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams that they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.

 28 The prophet who has a dream, let him tell it as a dream; and he that has my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat?" says the Lord. [Notice! The Lord has likened dreams to be chaff, but his word to be wheat. Do not depend on dreams in the least.]

 29 "Is not my word like a fire?" says the Lord; "and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?3 [His Word is Christ, the Word of God, the power of God. Hearing him speaking to you in your heart and then obeying the word of the Lord, results in the burning of the sin within you and a hammering down of that sinful nature.]

 30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, says the Lord, who steal my words everyone from his neighbor that they claim are from me.

 31 Behold, I am against the prophets," says the Lord, "who use their tongues, and say, 'He said.'

 32 Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams," says the Lord, "and tell them, causing my people to err by their lies and by their lightness; yet I did not send them or command them. Therefore they will be of no benefit at all to this people," says the Lord.
