Ezekiel Predicts Doom For False Preachers
1 Yah's Word Again, ๐Ÿ˜‡, the word of YHVH comes [alive in] me:
2 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion [YAH] says, โ€œโ€˜Son of Adam,โ€™ prophesy against Israel's [false] prophets. They foretell [lies]. They predict [futures] invented in their own imaginations. Say to them, โ€˜Hear the word of YHVH!
3 Spiritual Blindness *Adonai YHVH decrees, โ€œWoe to the foolish [vile] prophets who follow their own spirit[s]. They see nothing!
4 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion Oh Israel! Your [false] prophets [roam] like jackals [prowling] ruins.
5 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion You [false prophets] never trudge up to [repair] the gaps [in Jerusalem's spiritual walls]. You neglect to build up a โ€˜barricadeโ€™ so the house of Israel can stand [during] the battle coming on YHVH's [Judgment] Day.
6 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion [False preachers] see vanity. They [spew] lying divination. [They hiss], โ€œYHVH says [this],โ€ when [I,] YHVH never sent them. Yet [their magic tricks] make [their hearers] hope for [destiny] to confirm their predictions.
7 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion [You know] you [hypocrites] see vain visions, and speak lying divinations. You say, โ€˜YHVH said so and so.โ€™ But I never spoke [to you]!โ€
8 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion So Adonai YHVH warns, โ€œBecause you [preachers] speak ruin, and see lies, watch: I'm against you.โ€
9 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion Adonai YHVH continues, โ€œMy hand eventually grabs onto [all] prophets who visualize tornadoes [of hot-air], who channel shams. [Rogues] never stay [long] in the assembly of my people. [I blot out] the [liars' names] from the [genealogical] records of the house of Israel. [I banish the religiots from] the soil of Israel. Then you realize that I am YHVH {The-Universal-Sovereign}.
10 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion *The [false preachers] keep seducing my people, saying, โ€˜Peace,โ€™ when there is no peace. [One false prophet] builds up a [shoddy] wall. Then look: [his companions] daub it with untempered whitewash [to give it the illusion of strength].
11 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion * ๐Ÿ˜‡, warn the [preachers] who daub [their weak โ€˜wallsโ€™] with untempered mortar. [Say,] โ€˜[Your predictions] will fail. A torrential cloudburst and massive hailstones come to cascade [on] you [fakers]. A stormy wind soon rips [your phony religion] to bits.
12 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion Watch out, [preachers]! Soon your walls fall.โ€™ [Then sarcastic investigators will taunt] you with this question, โ€œWhere's the whitewash you [use] to cover over [YOUR shoddy work]?โ€™โ€ [Don't answer them.]
13 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion [Say,] Adonai YHVH says, โ€˜I personally [come to] rip [your phony religion] with a rushing, gushing firestorm of my flame-breathing fury-flood. [I rain] huge molten hailstones to destroy [your clergy-cliques].
14 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion So I break down the โ€˜wallโ€™ you [religionists] plaster with untempered mortar. [I] smash it down to the ground, revealing its [demonic] foundation. As it falls, destroying you [fakes cowering] at its center, you recognize that I am YHVH {All-Powerful}.
15 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion Thus I spend my fire-rage on [your religious] wall[s], and upon [you fakes] who plaster the [walls] with untempered โ€˜mortar.โ€™ Then I pronounce over your [dead bodies], โ€œThe wall [of false Judeo-Christianity] no longer exists. The [scam preachers and rabbis] who whitewashed it breathe no more.
16 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion [I kill] the prophets of Israel who [predict fantasies] concerning Jerusalem, who see visions of peace for her when no peace is [coming],โ€ warns Adonai YHVH.
17 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion โ€œLikewise, you โ€˜son of Adam,โ€™ set your face against your peoples' [fortune-telling] daughters. They prophesy out of their own [perverted] heart[s]. Foretell their doom:
18 The Occult Say, โ€œAdonai YHVH decrees, โ€˜Woe to you [covens of witchy] women. [You] weave [lies to] cover over the [unifying actions] of [my] hands. You make [occult] veil-shrouds [to cover] the heads [and eyes] of [people] small and great, to ambush their souls. You ensnare the lives of my people. You [never] save the lives of the souls who come to you!
Commercial translations fight each other to make nonsense out of these obscure metaphors. At least the GNT makes an intelligible sentence: โ€œYou sew magic wristbands for everyone and make magic scarves for everyone to wear on their heads, so that they can have power over other people's lives. You want to possess the power of life and death over my people and to use it for your own benefit.โ€ In 2020, the Satanic world dominators began forcing the world population to cover their faces with useless, harmful masks, in an end-times wave of fulfillment of this prophecy.
19 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion You [crypto-witches] gouge my people for handfuls of barley. For crumbs of bread you slay [innocent] souls who should live. And you save alive miscreants who should die. [You kill] by deceiving my people who hear your lies.โ€
20 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion So Adonai YHVH commands, โ€œWatch me [rip apart] the mask-shrouds you [Crypto-Satanists throw] to hunt [human] souls like [flying] birds. I tear [your traps] from your arms. I come to set free the souls of the living [people] you hunt like turkeys.
21 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion *I rip apart the [spiritual and literal] face-coverings [you use to] ensnare my people in your [greedy] hands. I permanently rescue [my children] from your fists. Then you recognize that I am [the Almighty] YHVH.
#4555 micpachah from #5596; a veil (as spread out):โ€”kerchief, bandana, face-covering.
22 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion Your [occult] lies depress the hearts of [my] righteous [people]. I don't make them sad. You [propagandists] strengthen [warmongers'] hands. You prevent [criminals] from turning from their [evil] life-paths. You promise [villains] life. [But you yield only death.]
23 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion So [soon] you [sorceror-religionists] stop seeing ruinous [visions. In the grave, you] channel no more divinations. For I rescue my people out of your [bloody] clutches. [As you die,] finally you see that I am YHVH {Omnipotence-Personified}.โ€
