Another Warning to the False Shepherds and False Prophets of Today

 


Ezekiel 13:16

To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD.”

King James Version (KJV)



Matthew 7:15

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

King James Version (KJV)


Matthew 7:16

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

King James Version (KJV)




Prerequisite Studies:



Matthew Chapter 7



28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
