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.

Respond to concern sister comments. This is what this means  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?
Sew pillows — A figurative speech, expressing the security, which they promised to every one that came to them.
Kerchiefs — Triumphal caps, which were made by these prophetesses, and put upon the head of every who one consulted them, and by these they were to interpret, as a promise of victory over the Babylonians.
Stature — That is, of every age, whether younger or elder, which usually is seen by their stature.
To hunt — All this is really spreading a net, as hunters do, to catch the prey.
Will ye save — Can you preserve them alive, whom you deceive by your promises?

In reference to Ezekiel 13:18-22; Now this just my conjecture I'm not a Bible scholar, but I sincerely believe that these verses may be referring to witchcraft & familiar spirits. It also reminds me of ( Jeremiah 5:31)( Jeremiah 23:23-32) (Micah 3:6-8)(I John 4:1)(II Peter2:1-3)
Also search the scriptures so that you are aware of what the Word of God truly says, not even these words read those scriptures for yourself. Remember we are living in the days of great deception so it's vitally important for you to know God's word. Amen? Love you with the Love of Christ!!

it doesn't matter if you don't believe in 'rapture' what matters is you should accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour, live righteously while waiting for His gloriously second coming. so when He arrives, since you have phobia for flying, you can tell Him to take you home (heaven) by road or sea.

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".
Ace's Ezekiel Chapter 13 comment about verse 20 on 5/02/2013, 9:55am...
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.
David Eubanks's Ezekiel Chapter 13 comment about verse 20 on 4/16/2013, 8:18pm...
I agree that this verse and the New Testament does not support the rapture theory
