Bible: Jeremiah 23:25-32

23:25 The Lord says, 1  “I have heard what those prophets who are prophesying lies in my name are saying. They are saying, ‘I have had a dream! I have had a dream!’ 2  23:26 Those prophets are just prophesying lies. They are prophesying the delusions of their own minds. 3  23:27 How long will they go on plotting 4  to make my people forget who I am 5  through the dreams they tell one another? That is just as bad as what their ancestors 6  did when they forgot who I am by worshiping the god Baal. 7  23:28 Let the prophet who has had a dream go ahead and tell his dream. Let the person who has received my message report that message faithfully. What is like straw cannot compare to what is like grain! 8  I, the Lord, affirm it! 9  23:29 My message is like a fire that purges dross! 10  It is like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces! 11  I, the Lord, so affirm it! 12  23:30 So I, the Lord, affirm 13  that I am opposed to those prophets who steal messages from one another that they claim are from me. 14  23:31 I, the Lord, affirm 15  that I am opposed to those prophets who are using their own tongues to declare, ‘The Lord declares.’ 16  23:32 I, the Lord, affirm 17  that I am opposed to those prophets who dream up lies and report them. They are misleading my people with their reckless lies. 18  I did not send them. I did not commission them. They are not helping these people at all. 19  I, the Lord, affirm it! 20
