**UPDATED 5/16/13 8:38p.m.** Unfortunately all the videos I added below of the HTB Leadership Conference are now marked ‘private.’ =/  Hopefully some of you were able to watch them before that happened.  After I finish writing and posting my testimony, Lord willing, I would like to share with you some of the concerns I have after watching much of the conference.  I will tell you this much…Rick Warren already agreed to be one of the speakers for the 2014 HTB Leadership Conference, as announced by Nicky Gumbel.

For many of us who formerly attended — or still attend — Harvest Bible Chapel Rolling Meadows, we have valid reasons to be concerned about James MacDonald’s involvement with Steven Furtick.  And I’d like to share with you another reason why we should be concerned about Steven Furtick that some of you may not be aware of.  But first I need to share this with you:

On Monday, November 19th 2012, I was listening to Janet Parshall’s program ‘In The Market’ as I always do on my way home from work.  She has many excellent programs that make her listening audience aware of so many things that are happening all around us, and yet often times go unnoticed.  From a program on remote abortions–where we learned that a young woman can simply sit in her bed in an abortion clinic, and as she speaks to a ‘doctor’ via a video screen, she just tells him she wants to have an abortion, and with the click of a control on his end, a drawer to a small side cabinet at the woman’s bedside will then open.  Inside this drawer she will find a pill which she will then take that will slowly (and tragically, I might add) put an end to the life of her unborn child.  Far removed from the actual room where this is taking place, this doctor coldly, and intentionally, assists in taking the life of many, many precious children. 

And on the opposite side of the abortion issue, Janet has had programs where she shares some good news concerning many women who once worked in abortion clinics, but then after witnessing certain things, such as a baby being born alive during an abortion procedure, they came to the realization that abortions are indeed murder, and they left the abortion industry. 

Janet’s listeners have also heard many wonderful testimonies of women who have said ‘no’ to having an abortion just  moments before entering an abortion clinic all because of mobile units that were placed outside of the clinic that had an ultrasound machine inside.  Women were lovingly asked by prolife volunteers who stood near the clinic if they would like to come in and see their baby by means of the ultrasound machine that was inside.  After viewing the active, and fearfully and wonderfully formed child within their womb, many women have their eyes opened to see the truth; that within them is not a “clump of tissue”  as many women are told by doctors and nurses at these clinics, but indeed, a baby complete with fingers and toes, and many quickly change their minds and do not go through with the abortion.

However, in spite of the many heart moving, as well as very informative programs that Janet has had, and continues to have, she has had a few guests on her programs that have filled me with valid concerns.  One of them was Gerald Long, who is the President of Alpha USA, and he spoke with Janet in the beginning of the first hour of her program dated Nov. 19th 2012.  Hearing Janet express praise of the Alpha Course for all her listeners to hear, shocked and disappointed me.  And above all, raised some serious concerns for the many listeners who would be influenced by her endorsement of the Alpha Course, and possibly choose to get involved with it.

Beginning at the 17:33 mark, Janet says  

..and I spent some time… about 20 minutes 25 minutes earlier today just going back and reviewing a marvelous message that Nicky gave at an opening dinner for the Alpha Course that I think with clarity says what the Alpha Course  is all about.” 

After the break, beginning at the 18:40 mark, Janet goes on to say the following to Gerard Long, 

“…in all that I’ve ever read or studied about the Alpha Course I’ve been very comfortable that it is a clear declaration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.” 

To hear her say that deeply filled me with concern, because, If you are already aware of the valid concerns that many have with Nicky Gumbel’s Alpha Course, it does not ‘clearly declare the gospel of Jesus Christ,’ but rather promotes a message of  salvation by works, and introduces people to rituals and occultic practices, as you will learn by the information I have posted below for you.

Towards the very end of their time together the focus of their conversation was on ‘unity’, and how the messages presented in the Alpha Course is bringing many churches together.  Near the end of  her conversation with Gerald Long, Janet says the following to him about the Alpha Course…

“And throughout the core of those messages is the Word of God which is by its very definition  transcendent, therefore it transcends denominational divisions, correct?” 

And of course Gerald Long agreed.  Unity among true Bible believing Christians is a good thing, but the Alpha Course is promoting unity at the expense of sound Biblical doctrine.  And that is something we as Bible believing Christians cannot promote or be a part of.

You can listen to their 24 minute conversation in Hour 1 of her program here>>FINDING PURPOSE AND LIFE  Be prepared to *roll your eyes* and deeply sigh out of concern and shock as I did while listening to this program. 😦

I shared all of the above with you in order to tell you the following:  Two weeks from today, on Monday, May 13th, 2013, as well as on Tuesday, May 14th, 2013, Holy Trinity Brompton, the largest Anglican church in Britain, will again be presenting their Leadership Conference.  Since 1990 Nicky Gumbel has been the leader of the Alpha Course.  Holy Trinity Brompton church is known for their promotion of the ‘Toronto Blessing,’  with includes manifestations of animal noises and bodily jerking supposedly produced in the people by the Holy Spirit. 

On their website they state the following concerning the upcoming Leadership Conference: 

“HTB Leadership Conference is a unique opportunity for leaders from many different parts of society to come together to worship God and to learn skills which will enable them to grow in the sphere of influence to which they have been called.”  SOURCE <Click here to see the list of 64 guest speakers, worship leaders, and more information about this conference.

One person among the 64 listed as guest speakers and worship leaders, is… yes, you guessed it…none other than Steven Furtick.  And even though there are many guest speakers at this conference that I am not yet familiar with, there are others besides Steven Furtick that I am aware of, which will give those of us who are ‘earnestly contending for the faith’ (Jude 3) valid reasons to be concerned.  Some of the other names that immediately raise a red flag are as follows:

Bill Hybels, Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, Luiji Gioia, a Benedictine monk, and Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.  When I am finally finished writing my testimony and sharing it with you, as well as posting all the information I intend to share with you from the documents of Vatican ll and the Council of Trent, you will then clearly see (at least I hope and pray you will) why we should be very concerned for those who follow the teachings of Steven Furtick, as well as Bill Hybels, and others who claim to be Christians, yet get involved with religious movements aimed at uniting together, and slowly laying aside sound Biblical doctrine.

Below you will find some very important information that I ask you to prayerfully consider checking out, so you will be well informed and not be led astray by becoming involved in the Alpha Course.

CECIL ANDREWS – ALPHAATTEND OR AVOID?  PART 1 OF 2

THE BEREAN CALL ‘WHAT ABOUT THE ALPHA COURSE?’

In the following video, you will hear Steven Furtick say that he is…

“…so honored to be a speaker at this year’s HTB Leadership Conference.”

I have seen pictures of Steven Furtick and his beautiful family, and have prayed for them as well.  However, to see him (and many other prominent Christian leaders ) getting involved with movements such as the Alpha Course which present teachings that are contrary to sound Biblical doctrine, is very disturbing and clearly indicates a lack of Biblical discernment.  A pastor is held accountable to God concerning what they teach and how they protect their flock, in spite of many pastors who reject the fact that they are to be shepherds who are to feed the Word of God to their congregations.  And those who follow after Steven Furtick, (instead of following Christ) and who do not test what S F says and does in light of Scripture, (as God’s Word clearly shows us we are to do –Acts 17:11) will very likely be led into getting involved with the Alpha Course when they see that Steven Furtick, their pastor, is a part of Nicky Gumbel’s Holy Trinity Brompton Leadership Conference.

Also, if James MacDonald continues to highly praise Steven Furtick, and not make the people who attend Harvest  aware of the dangers of the Alpha Course, (which I hope James is aware of) he will also be guilty again of failing to protect his sheep from false teachers. 

Whether a Christian is a pastor, a teacher, or simply a repentant follower of Jesus Christ who places their trust only in the finished work of Christ on the cross, and rests in the fact that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, we are all to be Bereans and test things in light of Scripture.

Steven Furtick’s choice to be a part of Nicky Gumbel’s Leadership Conference, is a decision that could possibly influence many to get involved with the Alpha Course.  And in so doing, he will be held responsible for any who are led  into spiritual deception.  (Mark 9:42)

In the following video some of the disturbing comments you will hear is… Nicky Gumbel saying to all the leaders in attendance,

“This is a conference with a purpose.  And the purpose is to see the transformation of this nation.”

You will also hear Christine Caine say, 

“We’re leaders… in the kingdom of God!  “...you and I are personally responsible for the evangelization of planet earth before the second coming of Jesus.”

At the  2:32 mark you will also hear Judah Smith say, concerning Catholic monk, Luigi Gioia, 

“When I read his emails it’s like reading an epistle from Paul.”

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“If anyone causes one of these little ones-those who believe in Me–to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.” (Mark 9:42)

“Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly .” (James 3:1)

“Therefore I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men.  For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.  Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.  Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood.  I now that after I leave , savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.  Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:26-31)

Unfortunately, time does not permit me to express all my concerns to you in detail about the Alpha Course, and why seeing Steven Furtick (and so many other professing Christian leaders) getting involved with it sets off loud alarms in my discernment detection system and raises large red flags before my eyes, so please consider reading the information below so you can learn much more.

SESSION 2 PATRICK LENCIONI AND PETE GREIG

In this video, starting at 1:55:50, you will hear Pete Greig endorse not only personal revelations from God, but also speaks of Henri Nouwen, having a ‘secret place’ with God, quotes Eugene Peterson, promotes Mark Batterson’s unbiblical form of prayer in his book, ‘The Circle Maker,’ and he also encourages the unbiblical and mystical form of prayer known as ‘Lectio Divina.’

Clearly, Pete Greig is being led by his feelings and seeking experiences to connect with God, and encouraging those who listen to him to do the same.  Gone is the reading the Word of God in context as the Biblical way to hear from God and to get to know Him personally.  So much more could be said, but I was hoping to write Part 1 of my testimony today, but wanted to comment on the HTB Leadership Conference, and to post these videos for all of you, and to urge you all to please make sure you test things that people say (who claim to speak for God) against the truth of God’s Word.  (1 Thessalonians 5:21,22, Acts 17:11) So many Christians are being led astray by these unbiblical, mystical, and even occultic practices that are being promoted by many so-called Christian leaders today.

 Well, I was planning on getting to sleep early tonight. However, I find the need to watch the ‘Passion 2013 Conference’ to see what is being spiritually fed to the 60,000 students that are in attendance this year. And if it’s anything like last year, sadly that means there will be a strong dose of mysticism thrown into the messages. If you’d like, you can watch the coverage that is only available until tonight, Saturday, January 5th– midnight, at the link below:

PASSION 2013 CONFERENCE>> ALL SESSIONS ( **UPDATE 1/6/13**SESSIONS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.  SEE VIDEOS FROM CONFERENCE THAT I ADDED BELOW)

This conference is being held at the Georgia Dome until January 4th. Speakers include Louie Giglio, John Piper, Beth Moore, Francis Chan, Judah Smith, and Gary Haugen. (Hmmm…a new person to check out; haven’t heard of him before).  (**UPDATE** Found out he is the President and CEO of International Justice Mission, helping to end human trafficking). Worship led by: Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill, Charlie Hall, David Crowder, LeCrae, and Jesus Culture. Lord willing, when time allows, I will be expressing the reasons that we as Christians should be concerned about this.  But here’s a statement that should be a cause for concern: “Passion is about the Jesus Generation uniting for His fame.”

You can read general information on the conference here>PASSION 2013 CONFERENCE TO KICK OFF IN ATLANTA WITH 60,000 STUDENTS

THIS VIDEO WILL EXPRESS MANY CONCERNS ABOUT THE SPEAKERS FROM LAST YEAR, WHO ARE ALSO SPEAKING THIS YEAR

THESE VIDEOS WILL EXPRESS CONCERNS ABOUT ‘JESUS CULTURE’

VIDEOS FROM PASSION 2012 (UPDATE 11/12/13 JUST FOUND OUT THE FOLLOWING THREE VIDEOS ARE NOW MARKED ‘PRIVATE,’ SO I POSTED A NEW ONE UNDER THOSE THREE, PLUS ONE THAT WILL EXPLAIN THE DANGERS OF LECTIO DIVINA TO YOU

I highly recommend this information on ‘Lectio Divina’ by Pastor Gary Gilley of Southern View Chapel to you so that you will clearly understand the dangers of this spiritual practice. >> SACRED READING (LECTIO DIVINA)

Isn’t it just like ‘the enemy of our souls’ to try and take the Word of God and use it in an attempt to lead us into the occult.  Please read God’s Word and treasure His Word!  (I need to get some sleep now, so will continue this tomorrow…Lord willing)!  God bless you!

**UPDATE** SATURDAY 1/5/13 LINK NO LONGER ACTIVE.  SEE VIDEOS OF CONFERENCE BELOW** **UPDATE** THURSDAY, 9:00a.m.**  Here’s the link to today’s feed, which will only be available until Friday night –midnight.  Beth Moore is the opening speaker, with Judah Smith and Francis Chan speaking later.  Again, please pray for discernment and test everything in light of Scripture (Acts 17:11, 1 Thessalonians 5:21,22) –even the words of the songs!    SESSION TWO 

**UPDATE**11:30a.m. JUST FOUND THIS VIDEO AND HAVEN’T EVEN LISTENED TO IT YET: CHRIS ROSEBROUGH EXPRESSING CONCERNS WITH PASSION 2013 **UPDATE**1/5/12 Lord willing, when time allows, I will be adding some comments concerning this video, as well as adding more related information. (**UPDATE** THE MISTY EDWARDS VIDEOS NOW POSTED BELOW, IS THE ‘RELATED INFORMATION’ THAT I WAS REFERRING TO).

CONCERNS WITH PASSION 2013

Here’s some reasons why you should be concerned about the ‘PASSION CONFERENCES’.  Let’s start with Judah Smith.  For one, he promotes the ‘Alpha Course,’ and will be an influence on all our young people in attendance at ‘Passion 2013’

 Judah Smith has also been a part of Nicky Gumbel’s (Nicky Gumbel is the present leader of the ‘ALPHA COURSE’) HTB (Holy Trinity Brompton) LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE, along with Christine Caine, and Rick Warren and Tony Blair. (2012 Conference)

And for those of you who are aware of who Steven Furtick is, he will be one of the key speakers at the HTB CONFERENCE this year along with Bill Hybels, as you will see in the following video.  (I’ll also add this video, as well as some comments to my ‘WARNING YOU WITH TEARS’ post, when time allows).

If you’re not aware of the ‘Alpha Course’ and what it teaches, please consider reading the following:

ERIN BENZIGER OF ‘DO NOT BE SURPRISED’ THE ALPHA COURSE COMPROMISE  

DECEPTION IN THE CHURCHTHE DANGERS OF THE ALPHA COURSE

*Harvesters (those who attend Harvest Bible Chapel)– and all other Christians, as well — do you now see serious reasons to be concerned about *Steven Furtick, and these speakers, and what is taking place in the name of Christianity today??  Please read and study your Bible, and research these things, as well, so you will not be led into deception! 

As much as I would love to just sit here and express all my concerns to you about this conference — and more — the thought of the ‘rapture’ taking place on a day when my home is in total chaos (as it is today because of all the time that I have spent on writing lately, as well as because of not being home due to Christmas and New Year’s gatherings) fills me with determination to get my place in order!  I would hate to have anyone find my home in this condition after I have been  ‘caught up’ to meet the Lord in the air!    (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Luke 21:28)  So, unless God does a miracle and provides a writing job for me, I need to get my home back in order today, and get to bed early so I can function at work during the days ahead. Lord willing, when time allows, I will be making comments  on one of the videos I posted so that I can make you aware of some valid concerns.  In the days ahead I will also be adding links to others in ministry who actually have the time to discuss the ‘Passion Conference’ so you clearly understand why many are deeply concerned.  I pray you will have ears to hear, and also pray that God will bless you with discernment and one day use you to warn others, as well.

Now, back to watching the live feed of the Conference, and cleaning as I do!

**UPDATE 1:22p.m.**  I’m back!  Had to just express one thing to you that I am observing as I am watching the live coverage, and that is the overemphasis on social justice issues and human trafficking. As horrible as this is to know that so many precious young children are being sold into slavery and abused, it seems to me that this Conference (as well as many other ministries today) are focused on ‘deeds not creeds,’ just like Rick Warren focuses on.  That is to say, that the focus is no longer on Jesus Christ and the gospel — what has already been done through Christ’s atoning work on the cross and by His resurrection — but rather on what we can do to make this world a better place.  Let’s face it.  This world will never be perfect until Christ returns and rules and reigns on this earth. What will begin to change this world is the preaching of the gospel so that people are aware of their sin and their need for a Savior.  Change comes when God changes the sinful heart of man.  True slavery is the slavery to sin, and true freedom comes through Christ Jesus, alone!

“Jesus replied,  “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.  Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.  So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:34-36)

Sadly, so far I see that this conference is mainly focused on promoting and raising money for ‘The End It’ movement to end human trafficking, and not focused on Jesus.  Louie Giglio, at approximately 27:00 into the session, said to this young crowd,  “…together we can do great things.”  “…together we are a force for good.”  “…collectively we’ve become a mighty force for justice.” 

Earlier, it was mentioned that everyone received free sandwiches from ‘ Jason Deli,’ and that it was the first time they had eaten since arriving there.  How many hours had it been since they had eaten?  Are they being programmed as the young people who attend IHOP are (International House Of Prayer – another concern I have), by attending long sessions with hyped up music, and easily influenced because of their lack of sleep and food? Will look further into that possibility.

HERE’S SOME INFORMATION ON THE IMPORTANCE OF FOCUSING ON ‘CREEDS AND NOT DEEDS’

MODERN REFORMATIONCREEDS AND DEEDSHOW DOCTRINE LEADS TO DOXOLOGICAL LIVINGMICHAEL S. HORTON

Ugh!  Want to say so much more, but really need to go now!

**UPDATE**1/3/13/5:11p.m. Watching this conference again as I am eating dinner, and listening to the former lead singer of Delirious sing one of his songs with lyrics that are void of praise to God and are only focused on self:  “I feel alive, I come alive, I am alive on God’s great dance floor.”  (Note to self: I really need to turn the sound down and just watch the lyrics, so these songs don’t get stuck in my head)! 

Again it has been mentioned that “…nobody’s eaten.”  (Session 4 starting near the 37:00 min. mark).

Final limited coverage available only till Saturday night, 1/5/13midnight).

**UPDATE** 1/4/13** Just found this new video by Chris Rosebrough

**ADDED 1/7/13 9:30 p.m.** Chris Rosebrough just uploaded this video                

**UPDATE** 1/5/13 In the following video you will hear the very important information on ‘community’ that Chris Rosebrough was speaking about in the previous video.  When time allows, please listen and become aware of what is taking place in many churches today concerning the strong emphasis on joining a ‘small group’ or ‘community,’ and where this all began and where it’s headed.  You may have to listen to this a few times to grasp what’s really happening and the dangers that are involved!  The bottom line is: “The individual does not exist; it’s all about the ‘community.’  Can you now begin to sense the danger? 

You will also hear information on ‘vision casting,’ which many of us are hearing in our churches today.  You will also hear Steven Furtick @ 1:16:00 – 1:17:35, Perry Noble @ 1:19:15 – 1:20:16, and information on Rick Warren and his ‘Peace Plan,’ as well.

**UPDATE 1/5/13 6:25 p.m.**  Just found these videos from ‘Passion 2013’ on YouTube.  Please pray for discernment before you listen, and test everything in light of Scripture, now that you are aware of some of the problems –if you listened to the previous videos.  If more become available I will add them when time allows.  (Hopefully the people who posted these had the rights to post them, so they won’t be taken down).  **UPDATE 1/14/13 ALL VIDEOS ARE BACK UP!!  **UPDATE 1/8/13 MANY ARE NOW MARKED ‘PRIVATE**

VIDEOS FROM PASSION 2013 CONFERENCE

Again, please pray for discernment, and do not allow your emotions to overpower your ability to discern.

MORE CONCERNS

Credit goes to EBenz of DO NOT BE SURPRISED for the following video:

As I watched the video above,  it reminded me of an equally disturbing video of Misty Edwards of IHOP (International House Of Prayer) that I found on YouTube four years ago.  I posted the videos below for you to watch and to test in light of Scripture, and to also  make you realize that many in ministry today are leading our youth into unbiblical and mystical practices that cause them to seek an ‘experience’ with God instead of seeking Him in His Word. 

In Part 1 you will hear her share a dream she has (@ 5:06) about God coming to her in a dream in the form of a man and running like a lion…’  Then she speaks about “a Buddhist monk of sorts, and there’s this aura of peace…”  But before she does, she says the following disturbing things,  starting @ 1:20…

“I believe the new thing He’s doing is He’s about to split the sky, come back to the planet as a man…I mean I really believe this-this sounds outrageous, doesn’t it?   I believe that Jesus is gonna come back to the planet as a Jewish man… (can’t understand next few words) …”brown eyes, brown hair, not that tall- Jewish man, who was born to be a king, is coming back to the planet, and He is gonna come back to the planet in response to the bride who’s gonna be singing… unified, globally.   This is intense where this thing is going.  I’m looking at your faces, and I’m going, “God, these-this is  who you’ve chosen, this is a- at least a stream of people that You’ve chosen for such a time as this, to raise up a new sound, a new song in the earth, for such a time as this to-to usher in the second coming.  I mean, do you have any idea who you are?”

MISTY EDWARDS ON PROPHETIC WORSHIP AT BREAKOUT SESSION ONE THING 2007

What Misty Edwards — and those like her– presents to young people today, is a seductive message to lure them into the ‘New Apostolic Reformation/Kingdom Now’ theology, which says that we as Christians are to take control of this world by taking positions in the government and businesses to take dominion over this world to usher in the return of Jesus Christ.  Can you see how a message like this can capture the attention of young people who are searching for a purpose for their lives? In part, Pastor Gary Gilley of Southern View Chapel, says this about Dominion Theology:

Dominion theology (the belief-system behind reconstructionist movement) teaches that through the coming of Christ the believer has dominion over every area of life.  We are now in the Kingdom of God (note the similar view of the Kingdom that the Vineyard movement takes, as well as the plethora of Christian songs being written implying that we are in the Kingdom at the present time) and as a result we should be reigning with Christ over the earth as Rev. 5:10 says.  The question is when will we reign.  If the Kingdom is on earth now, then we should have dominion now!  Right?  Don’t many of us proclaim this thought when we sing the popular Charismatic song “Majesty” which invites us to,  “Come glorify Christ Jesus, the King,”  after all, “Kingdom authority flows from His throne unto His own.”  With this authority from the King we are to reclaim the earth for Christ, not just spiritually, but socially, economically (it is no accident that one of the reconstructionist’s organizations is called, The Institute For Christian Economics) and politically.  The dominion of the earth is accomplished not only through prayer and evangelism, but through the political process, and social reformation.  Christ will not return to earth until the church has accomplished this task.”  SOURCE

SCRIPTURES FOR YOU TO REFLECT ON

“The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.” (1 Timothy 4:1)

“This is what the LORD Almighty says:  “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes.  They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.  They keep saying to those who despise me,  ‘The LORD says:  You will have peace.’  And to all those who follow the stubbornness of their hearts they say,  ‘No harm will come to you.’  But which of them has stood in the council of the LORD to see or hear His Word?  Who has listened and heard His Word?  See, the storm of the LORD will burst out in wrath, a whirlwind swirling down on the heads of the wicked.  The anger of the LORD will not turn back until He fully accomplishes the purposes of His heart.  In days to come you will understand it clearly.  I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied.  But if they had stood in My council, they would have proclaimed My Words to My people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.  “Am I only a God nearby,”  declares the LORD  “and not a God far away?  Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him?”  declares the LORD.  “Do I not fill heaven and earth?”  declares the LORD.  I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in My name.  They say, ‘I had a dream!  I had a dream!’  How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds?  They think the dreams they tell one another will make My people forget My name, just as their fathers forgot My name through Baal worship.  Let the prophet who has a dream tell his dream, but let the one who has My Word speak it faithfully.  For what has straw to do with grain?”  declares the LORD.  “Is not My Word like fire,”  declares the LORD,  and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?  “Therefore,”  declares the LORD, “I am against the prophets who steal from one another words supposedly from Me.  Yes,”  declares the LORD,  “I am against the prophets who wag their own tongues and yet declare,  ‘The LORD declares.’  Indeed, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,”  declares the LORD.  “They tell them and lead My people astray with their reckless lies,yet I did not send or appoint them.  They do not benefit these people in the least,”  declares the LORD.” (Jeremiah 23:16-30)
