Jeremiah 23:28-30

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 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.
