2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Yee haue scattered my flocke and driuen them away, and haue not visited them; behold I will visite vpon you the euill of your doings, saith the Lord.
8 But, The Lord liueth, which brought vp, and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the North countrey, and from all countreis whither I had driuen them, and they shall dwell in their owne land.
9 ¶ Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets, all my bones shake: I am like a drunken man (and like a man whom wine hath ouercome) because of the Lord, and because of the words of his Holinesse.
12 Wherefore their way shalbe vnto them as slippery wayes in the darkenes: they shalbe driuen on and fall therein: for I will bring euill vpon them, euen the yeere of their visitation, saith the Lord.
14 I haue seene also in the prophets of Ierusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walke in lies: they strengthen also the hands of euill doers, that none doeth returne from his wickednesse: they are all of them vnto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
15 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts concerning the Prophets; Behold, I will feede them with wormewood, and make them drinke the water of gall: for from the Prophets of Ierusalem is profanenesse gone forth into all the land.
16 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not vnto the wordes of the prophets that prophecie vnto you; they make you vaine: they speake a vision of their owne heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord.
32 Behold, I am against them that prophecie false dreames, sayeth the Lord, and doe tell them, and cause my people to erre by their lyes and by their lightnesse, yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profite this people at all, sayth the Lord.
38 But sith ye say, The burden of the Lord; therefore thus sayeth the Lord, Because you say this word, The burden of the Lord, and I haue sent vnto you, saying; Ye shall not say, The burden of the Lord:

From experience in my kingdom race God must fulfill every word of his that has been spoken genuinely on his behalf, for he is a faithful God and he guides his words jealously. He cannot fail.

He wants us to call his name alone, YAHUAH! L-rd means Baal. All through the bible, CALL ON MY "NAME". There is only one name to be saved by! YAH-our salvation YAHUSHUA; HALA-YUAH.

The verses 7,8 are referring to the gathering back of the Jews to their land that took place in 1921.

John Juai's Jeremiah Chapter 23 comment about verse 1 on 7/14/2012, 10:49pm...
Religious division is a sin. It is an open rebellion against God`s call and against the prayer Christ Jesus for unity.(Jn.17:20-23) It is a curse rather than a blessing. Christ Jesus prayed against this very thing. Apostle Paul condemned it. (1 Cor.1:10-13)God hates those who sow discord.(Prov.6:19).Denominationalism is a sin and the tragic result is the destruction or loss of many precious souls.No one can truly respect and obey Christ`s prayer for unity and at the same time be in favor of Denominationalism . Thus some religious people who call themselves christians are engaged in what in God`s sight as abominable as witchcraft and idolatry. (1 Sam.15:23)

"Is not my word like as a fire? saith the lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? (Jeremiah 23:29)

Let God have His perfect work.

Prophet that has a dream let him speaks his dream and not lie to the people in the name of the Lord. His dreams are not God's word, And the prophet that has the word of God ,should speak the word of God faithfully and not add his own word.Because God cannot be mock.
