For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously [treason] against me, saith the Lord. The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means [use personal means to rule–such as money, control over people, etc.–but God is not their means]; and My people love to have it so [love hearing false prophesies and listening to men who use their means to rule over them]: and what will ye do in the end thereof? Jeremiah 5:11, 31
"I can tell you as a pastor for over 40 years as I preach the truth of the Word of God right from the scripture, with nothing added or subtracted, I can look at the faces of people, and I can watch the faces harden with rebellion and resistance. God said they will not receive correction. And that is the problem with 99 percent of the Christian population in America today. They refuse to be corrected. They will not be corrected. Do not correct them. Do not rebuke them. Do not teach truth. Do not step on their toes. Do not pick on their particular pet doctrine, whatever it may happen to be. Do not step on their sacred cow. They refuse to be corrected. They are like little children who have never been disciplined by a mother and a father. They are like little children who have never been taught to behave; have never been taught to mind; they are just grown up brats who have never learned discipline from the Lord God of Heaven! That's what we are dealing with."
"God said, I have had it with these people. They have been taught the truth, but they will not hear it. I have sent judgment on them. Think of the things they have already endured to this point. And they hardened their faces and their hearts, and they will not be corrected. What's it going to take for God to get the attention of the American church? What has to happen? What will it take? Look at the condition of our country today. Look at where we are as a nation today. Look at what is happening inside the United States."
