“Many shepherds have ruined My vineyard, They have trampled down My field; They have made My pleasant field A desolate wilderness. Jeremiah 12:10
God had delivered Israel everything,he delivered them out of slavery, he provided for them in the wilderness, he gave them the Promise Land, however Israel was never satisfied with what God provided. They became wicked and worshiped pagan gods trampling on the Kingdom God was building here on Earth
It has been made a desolation, Desolate, it mourns before Me; The whole land has been made desolate, Because no man lays it to heart. Jeremiah 12:11
The Promise Land has become a land of desolation because of the wickedness it their hearts. Israel cared more about their sin and wickedness then they did about praising and worshipping God.
Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Matthew 7:15
The word pastor is latin for shepherd. Jesus warned us that the false pastors/prophets/shepherds will come to destroy the Church. Just as the false shepherds trampled on and destroyed Israel internally, the false prophets today are trying to destroy the “Church” internally also
You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? Matthew 7:16
By their fruits you will now these people, what are the motives on these people? Are they serving God or serving themselves? Is what they are saying confirmed in the Word of God?
The biggest problem with Christianity today is the heretical teachings accepted today by many Christians because of lack of Biblical knowledge. Know who you are following, test the Spirits, don’t allow your Church to become a desolate wasteland because of wickedness Amen!
