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.
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;
|2 Peter 2:3,18|
3 And in their covetousness they will make merchandise of you with deceptive words; from long ago their judgment has not been idle, and their damnation has not slumbered.1 [For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, especially of the circumcision whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things they ought not to teach for filthy lucre's sake. Titus 1:10-11.]
18 For speaking great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh and much wantonness, those who were barely escaping from those who live in error. [To live in error is to live in sin.]
5 For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. [The peoples of the earth have ignored these perfectly clear behaviors, (sexual immorality, impurity, covetousness), that exclude any and all from the kingdom. From the Word of the Lord within: "Ephesians 5:5-6: This the void of the earth, made perfectly clear. Those who are immoral have no inheritance in God's kingdom." Paul just told us that covetousness is idolatry. So whatever we value or want without genuine need, we worship; and how one spends their free time defines their devotion. From the Word of the Lord within: "you must learn to hate everything you worship."]
6 Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.1 [Paul warns you not to be deceived by anyone who tells you differently, (e.g., that your sexual immorality, impurity, and covetousness is excused by believing in Jesus), which is what the preachers of Christianity do; but even the demons believe in Jesus. It is only by waiting on the Lord to hear and obey his commands that one can become pure, free of sexual immorality, and free of covetousness. From the Word of the Lord within: "The way is clear: listen and obey."]
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,'
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
18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own bellies [lusts and desires]; and by fair speaking and captivating language deceive the hearts of the simple.
|1 Timothy 4:1-2|
1 Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons,
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared as with a hot iron,
|2 Timothy 4:3-4 |
3 For the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap [accumulate in piles] to themselves teachers after their own lusts, who will say what their itching ears want to hear; [In Christianity today there are millions of blind-guide preachers and blind-guide teachers in the ditch, along with their billions of captive followers, whom they have led into the ditch; the blind guides' lies have been preached by so many for so long, their lies have become pervasive in all of Christianity. From the Word of the Lord within: "Just like Judaism was taken over by the enemy, so has Christianity, which is corrupt through and through. There is no church in the world that Christ set up specifically. Like Daniel, you are captive of the Chaldeans. Your place of worship is filled with unclean birds." (Unclean birds are fallen, corrupted angels — demons.)]
4 And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and will be turned to fables.1 [The whole world has been turned to the fables of make-believe Christianity, the Whore of Babylon, riding the beast of many names, with horns like a lamb; believing the fable of consequence-free sin through the transfer of the meaning of grace from the truth: that with repentance the Spirit of God commands us to deny lusts and ungodliness, as it purifies us to live a soberly, godly life in this present world —transferred instead to the twisted fable that grace excuses all past, present, and future sins in believers, thereby excusing believers to live in their lusts and pride as they please with no laws; which was predicted here and in Revelation. From the Word of the Lord within: "They have taken the Bible and made it an unholy thing used to justify their immersion in sin. The enemy is in all of Christianity. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior. All men are without excuse. If I were silent, they would have an excuse; every man has heard the call to repent. Do you agree with any who in their arrogance have stated that God excuses evil in believers? It's not fair, but they don't care."]
