More Than Bread Devotional for 5/23/11

1The word of the LORD came to me: 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel, who are prophesying, and say to those who prophesy from their own hearts: ‘Hear the word of the LORD!’ 3Thus says the Lord GOD, Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!  – Ezekiel 13:1-3

There was a lot of hubbub over the weekend because of a man who said that he had “conclusively” proved from Scripture that the Rapture would occur on Saturday.  I had personally written about many reasons why he was wrong several months before so I wasn’t surprised by the outcome, but I am praying for him and those who were deceived by his words.  It is important to seek God in His Word and not in the wisdom or “visions” of man.  Any man who claims to have had a “word from the Lord” that either contradicts Scripture or comes from a man who has been wrong about such a thing before is definitely not to be trusted or heeded.  That doesn’t mean that God will not speak to us.  He speaks in His Word if we will look there.  Jesus says to seek and you will find.  Seek Him in the Word He has given to us.
