30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the Lord, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the Lord.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
-The world is full of those who will do or say anything to bring destruction to their neighbors. They lead millions astray every day with lies and fanciful visions. It’s important to realize this so that we can be prepared to defend against it. The Bible warns us to “believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1) But it is also important to recognize that the Lord does not commission or condone those who would use His holy name to do you hurt; the Lord is not looking to confuse you or trick you (1 Corinthians 14:33) when it comes to trusting in Him. His thoughts toward us are of peace and not evil.
