OUR FATHER SAVES HIS PEOPLE FROM FALSE PROPHETS
Ezekiel chapter 13 verses 20 - 23 says this;
“‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people that you ensnare like birds. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord.
Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encouraged the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their lives, therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.’”
The prophet Ezekiel was instructed by the Lord to set his face against the daughters of his own people who had taken it upon themselves to talk like prophets out of their own imaginations.
These women had adopted the practice of divination along with a form of witchcraft that worked by sewing bands around the wrists and making veils for the heads of people of every stature to capture their souls.
With these spiritual instruments of control and manipulation, they prophaned the Lord to His people and then deceived those who could be deceived and caused them to bring about the deaths of the innocent and spare the lives of the guilty.
The Lord, through the prophet Ezekiel, declared His opposition to the practice of capturing the souls of people as though they were birds.
The Lord declared that He would tear off the bands and veils that the women of Israel were using as charms against their fellow Israelites. Doing this would set the captured souls free from the bondage that was placed on them.
The Lord also declared that he would shut down the ability to see false visions and the practice of divination in their midst. They had been using these spiritual weapons to discourage the righteous by causing them guilt over things that the Lord did not condemn them for and they also released the wicked from guilt that would have caused them to turn from their wicked ways.
The Lord declared that He would intervene to save His people from the evil practices that the daughters of Israel were practicing.
The singular power that the Lord has to traverse the realm of the spirit to cancel the workings of witchcraft in the defense of his people is a potent signal to those who practice it that the God of Israel is truly the mighty Lord over all things.
Bless the Lord who works to save His people from entrapment by witchcraft even when they don't know that they are ensnared and makes the diviners and witches to know that He is the Lord.
