They do not say in their heart,
“Let us now fear the LORD our God” Jeremiah 5:24
‘Shall I not punish these people?’ Declares the LORD. ‘On a nation such as this shall I not avenge myself?’ An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule on their own authority; and My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it? Jeremiah 5:29-31
False teachers and hireling pastors set a trap and lie in wait. They catch men for themselves. Their Church Houses are like cages full of evil birds. They are full of lies. They have become rich, well fed, popular and powerful. They excel in deeds of wickedness, teaching and doing what is not of God. They do not plead the cause of the orphan nor defend and help the poor Christians. But they prosper! Will God not punish this? Will God not avenge Himself? An appalling and horrible thing has happened within visible Churchianity; the prophets prophesy falsely and the ‘priests’ rule over the people on their own authority. And the Church people love it so! But what will you do when the end of all this comes? God is going to bring and end to all of this.
