HIS VINEYARD HAS YIELDED ONLY BAD FRUIT. SO HERE'S WHAT GOD PROMISES TO DO.

"I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard:  My loved one had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit.......What more  could I have done for it?...Now I will tell you what  I am going to do to my vineyard. I will take away its hedge, and it will be destroyed. I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled.  I will make it a wasteland, neither pruned nor cultivated, and briers and thorns will grow there. I will command the clouds not to rain on it. The vineyard of the Lord Almighty is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah are the garden of His delight. And He looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress." --Isaiah 5: 1-7
What do we hear all day? All night? The news is constant with bloodshed and distress.Whether you watch fiction …

DREAMERS OR PROPHETS? STRAW OR GRAIN? IDENTIFYING THE TRUTH.

I DID NOT SEND THESE PROPHETS A. Brother
“I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message.” Jer. 23:21
“…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.”  Jer. 23:22
“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 the rock in pieces?”  Jer. 23:28,29
We have a critical situation in the affluent western churches today.  Many occupy pulpit and podium who are not called and chosen by God to prophecy to His people.  These men and women hold positions of authority, influence and power among God’s people, yet they have not been sent by the Lord.  Therefore, we are listening to people and their dreams, instead of hearing and being broken before the Lord about our sins and our evil ways.
