When money speaks louder than God

When money speaks louder than God

Thus says the Lord concerning the prophets Who make my people stray; Who chant “Peace” While they chew with their teeth, But who prepare war against him Who puts nothing into their mouths: (Micah 3:5)

From the time of Micah, these “prophets” only had one interest: money. That’s why their messages were preached in tune with the listener’s pocketbook. The rich would hear a message of peace because it pleased them, and in return they would give money to the prophets. While the poor, who had nothing to give, were threatened to be cursed by those demons dressed as angels.

Such prophets are present in all religions, in all places, including evangelical churches. False prophets who, for a couple of silver coins, are willing to talk about anything, to preach whatever pleases the ears of those who have the means and those who write checks.

My consolation and need for justice rests on the following words:

“Therefore you shall have night without vision, And you shall have darkness without divination; The sun shall go down on the prophets, And the day shall be dark for them.”
(v. 6)

Please hurry Lord.
