9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
18 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:

Matthew Henry's Ezekiel Chapter 13 Bible commentary...
Heavy judgments against lying prophets. (1-9) The insufficiency of their work. (10-16) Woes against false prophetesses. (17-23)1-9 Where God gives a warrant to do any thing, he gives wisdom. What they delivered was not what they had seen or heard, as that is which the ministers of Christ deliver. They were not praying prophets, had no intercourse with Heaven; they contrived how to please people, not how to do them good; they stood not against sin. They flattered people into vain hopes. Such widen the breach, by causing men to think themselves deserving of eternal life, when the wrath of God abides upon them.
10-16 One false prophet built the wall, set up the notion that Jerusalem should be victorious, and made himself acceptable by it. Others made the matter yet more plausible and promising; they daubed the wall which the first had built; but they would, ere long, be undeceived when their work was beaten down by the storm of God's just wrath; when the Chaldean army desolated the land. Hopes of peace and happiness, not warranted by the word of God, will cheat men; like a wall well daubed, but ill built.
17-23 It is ill with those who had rather hear pleasing lies than unpleasing truths. The false prophetesses tried to make people secure, signified by laying them at ease, and to make them proud, signified by the finery laid on their heads. They shall be confounded in their attempts, and God's people shall be delivered out of their hands. It behoves Christians to keep close to the word of God, and in every thing to seek the teaching of the Holy Spirit. Let us so trust the promises of God as to keep his commandments.

We will meet Christ in the air and be changed from these bodies to celestial ones, but people add slot of things that are not biblically supported to the "rapture".

To "make them fly" in this sense, means to lie to the unrepentant sinners to them believe all is well. A real prophet would warn them that God's wrath is to come, but these false prophetesses are using God's name for payment.
While it's true that the word "rapture" is never mentioned in the bible, this is what happens:
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

I agree that this verse and the New Testament does not support the rapture theory
Billy Howard's Ezekiel Chapter 13 comment about verse 20 on 4/24/2012, 12:52pm...
I agree, God clearly said he is against the people who teach his children to fly to save their souls...Rapture is NEVER mentioned in the Bible anywhere....In order to clearly read/understand what this says, you need to research in Dr Strongs Con..and also see what each words means in Hebru.

Child of God you posted 1Thessalonians 4 where Paul starts the subject of people are not in graves who have died. Or where are the dead and we know their with the Father and they will return with Him, the LORD. At the 7th trump. You should of added some notes for the children reading it that clouds is Pauls street greek as he used in Romans that is a pack or crowed of people and if you look up the word air in this verse it is a higher level of thinking or a spirit body and not in the stratosphere or flying away. Anyway, the subject is not anyone being changedd but of where are the dead and Paul is saying they will return with the Lord. He made it clear in his 2nd letter as far as Christ return not to listen to that letter from him and goes on to explain the way it will be that no one will go any where until that falling away first the apostasy and that man of sin is revealed.

What? The verse is talking about false Prophetesses who are trying to control souls.Look in the bible were Saul had a Prophetesses bring Samuel back from the grave.. He was not happy.They are powerful spirits. God is not happy with there antcs either
Cheryl's Ezekiel Chapter 13 comment on 8/19/2011, 7:09pm...
I was also taught not to be deceived into believing the rapture. I believe that we need to study the word and that will be our armour to stand and fight against the antichrist. Most people are to blind to see the truth and they want to think that God will just fly them out of here before things get bad. The best thing we can do is pray for them because they will be easy pickings for the antichrist.
