We discover, to our amazement, that God uses the lies of
the false prophets and the dreamers of dreams as a test to evaluate our love
for Him based on your obedience to His word. What is God saying? If you
choose to listen to your preacher or the dizzy dreams and visions of some
stupid prophet above the written Word of God, then you can give yourself a
big fat zero for the test because you’ve made your choice based on your
disobedience to His Word.
The first part of this study was directed at the false
prophets. The second part of this study is directed at the false
prophetesses. The sin of the ‘fly-away lie’ is all-inclusive because
both men and women tell this lie from the pulpit. In the second part of this
study, our Father will come right out and say to the those who peddle this
lie. "I am against those that cover over My truth and then tell lies to My
people about flying to save their souls."
Ezekiel 13:17-Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face
against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart;
and prophesy thou against them.
The prophetesses, just like the prophets, pretend to have
a spirit of prophecy as they lie to Christians out of their own minds. Their
blatant fraud against the people, caused God to tell the prophet Ezekiel to
prophesy against them. A Prophet, by definition, is a foreteller of future
events under divine inspiration. Ezekiel, the prophet of record here, is
commanded by God to prophesy against the ‘fly-away’ doctrine that is
foolishly taught in a great number of the churches today.
Ezekiel 13:18-And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to
the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make
kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the
souls of My people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
The word ‘pillows’ in Hebrew means, "a covering
for secrecy." (Strong’s #3704 & #3680)
The word ‘armholes’ in Hebrew means, "a joint
of the hand." (Strong’s #679)
The word ‘kerchiefs’ in Hebrew means, "a veil
as spread out." (Strong’s #4555)
The sin that these prophetesses commit is with lies she
cover over all the joints of God’s saving hands, to conceal from the people
the hands of God lifted up in salvation (Isaiah 26:11). Deceivers, by
their nature, are very methodical in their deceptions and it’s their
practice to never leave those that they have deceived a way to recover from
the lie. This is evident by the subsequent actions that they take. They
place a veil over the heads and therefore cover the eyes to blind the people
from the truth, as if covering over God’s hands lifted up in salvation were
Ezekiel 13:19 And will ye pollute Me among My people
for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that
should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your
lying to My people that hear your lies?
Here, we are given the true value that these lying
prophetess place on your soul. ‘Handfuls of barley and pieces of bread’ is
an Hebrew idiom for a beggar’s dole. It means that they practically sell
your soul for nothing. Make no mistake about it, the souls of men
and women is the precious merchandise that is bought and sold in the
end time (Revelation 18:11-13). These prophetesses falsely prophesied death
to those who don’t believe the lie and they promise life to those who should
not live by lying to them about flying to save their soul. Therefore, the
‘fly-away’ doctrine, in the minds of those who are deceived, takes on the
illusion of truth, in spite of the fact God is against it.
