Something So Strong - Delusion and Divination

"The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds." Jer. 14:14

I share a dream, a song and an exhortation to put blinders on and focus on the narrow road...

More scripture:
"All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you. Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. Here are no coals to warm anyone; here is no fire to sit by. That is all they can do for you—these you have labored with and trafficked with since childhood. Each of them goes on in his error; there is not one that can save you." Isaiah 47:13-15

"Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy." Rev. 22:11

"For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect." Mat 24:24

...Isaiah 41:21-29...
21"Present your case," the LORD says. "Bring forward your strong arguments," The King of Jacob says.

22Let them bring forth and declare to us what is going to take place; As for the former events, declare what they were, That we may consider them and know their outcome. Or announce to us what is coming;

23Declare the things that are going to come afterward, That we may know that you are gods; Indeed, do good or evil, that we may anxiously look about us and fear together.

24Behold, you are of no account, And your work amounts to nothing; He who chooses you is an abomination.

25"I have aroused one from the north, and he has come; From the rising of the sun he will call on My name; And he will come upon rulers as upon mortar, Even as the potter treads clay."

26Who has declared this from the beginning, that we might know? Or from former times, that we may say, "He is right!"? Surely there was no one who declared, Surely there was no one who proclaimed, Surely there was no one who heard your words.

27"Formerly I said to Zion, 'Behold, here they are.' And to Jerusalem, 'I will give a messenger of good news.'

28"But when I look, there is no one, And there is no counselor among them Who, if I ask, can give an answer.

29"Behold, all of them are false; Their works are worthless, Their molten images are wind and emptiness.


"Something So Strong" Lyrics - Crowded House

Love can make you weep
can make you run for cover.
Roots that spread so deep
bring life to frozen ground.
Something so strong could carry us away

Something so strong could carry us today.

Turning in my sleep
love can leave you cold

The taste of jealousy is like a lust for gold.
Something so strong could carry us away

Something so strong could carry us today.

I've been feeling so much older

Frame me and hang me on the wall.
I've seen you fall into the same trap

This thing is happening to us all.
Something so strong could carry us away

Something so strong could carry us today.

Something so strong
something so strong

Something so strong
something so strong
