Fall of Spiritual Leaders, 7/10/17

I believe God is saying that it is very near time for the wayward shepherds of America to be brought down. God has given them time to repent but they have refused. Those he whom God sees this way will lose their positions and some will even lose their lives. In this respect his is a sad hour in the church of America but it is a necessary reality because the church has been so far out of line in America. May God rescue all who are willing to repent. The good news is that God will replace those he removes with new leaders he has tested and approved. In respect to the rise of a new bred of leaders, this is a very happy hour for the American church. Praise the Lord, let his perfect will be done.

Ezekiel 34:1-10New King James Version (NKJV)
Irresponsible Shepherds

34 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God to the shepherds: “Woe to the shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks? 3 You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool; you slaughter the fatlings, but you do not feed the flock. 4 The weak you have not strengthened, nor have you healed those who were sick, nor bound up the broken, nor brought back what was driven away, nor sought what was lost; but with force and cruelty you have ruled them. 5 So they were scattered because there was no shepherd; and they became food for all the beasts of the field when they were scattered. 6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and on every high hill; yes, My flock was scattered over the whole face of the earth, and no one was seeking or searching for them.”

7 ‘Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: 8 “As I live,” says the Lord God, “surely because My flock became a prey, and My flock became food for every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, nor did My shepherds search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock”— 9 therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of the Lord! 10 Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require My flock at their hand; I will cause them to cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall feed themselves no more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouths, that they may no longer be food for them.”
