Ezekiel Chapter 13
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.

I have for the past 3 4 days have been reading 12 through 14 chapters of Ezekiel, I am poised over this particular verse along with 21 23 verse. I have prayed and asked the Lord for understanding to reveal its meaning. I saw a picture of an actual garment with armpits sewn closed with a padded pillow to fit the opening by the false prophetess which results in a block to spiritual natural progress. It will seem unnatural in how it will happen. Agreement with a false and diabolical person acting as a medium is not Gods will for the child of God. It can only be a deception. Just a heart felt sincere opinion.

I read in believe in the second coming not a third and cannot find a partial or secret coming. Yes, we will all rise the dead first and yes, that is after the often scoffed at "dirt nap " they are asleep in Christ. They will rise first, then those that are alive. We will be changed and meet the Lord. The angels gather us from the four winds. Then almighty God 's wrath is poured out! Pre wrath not pre trib.

It 's amazing how intimate GOD is the fact he says he didnt create his people to be sad is mind blowing we were created to be happy. But the are wicked people who use witchcraft to destroy and control peoples lives. We we 're created to have Dominion not to dominate eachother thank GOD to JESUS who gives the hopeless hope who sets the captives free the shall be no enchantment against GODs people that will prosper.

verse 22 reminds me of all the churches who are accepting sin in the name of political correctness and telling the people they have nothing to worry about by living their sinful lifestyles... "you have a right to be happy...you 'll still go to heaven. " Instead of preaching the truth...that GOD should mean more to them than their lifestyles.

The written Holy Spirit inspired Word of The Living GOD is not to be mistaken as a trivia quiz. Where we question it or add to it. I beseech you brothern is what i hear the Lord say is why i came here and He spoke this book and chapter.

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?
