 14 Leave them alone and disregard them; they are blind guides and teachers.4 And if a blind man leads a blind man, they both will fall into a ditch." [The ministers of Christianity are the blind guides the Lord warned us about, not taught by the Lord's voice and light, not perfected by the Lord, not gifted with an authorized ministry, not sent by the Lord, and not speaking words from the Spirit of the Lord; rather, they speak from their carnal minds, the nature of death, and preach their vain opinions from the imagination of their evil hearts. In Christianity today there are millions of blind-guide preachers and blind-guide teachers in the ditch, along with their billions of captive followers, whom they have led into the ditch; the blind guides' lies have been preached by so many for so long, their lies have become pervasive in all of Christianity. By fair speaking and captivating language they deceive the hearts of the simple. Rom 16:18. They are self-appointed, unperfected, ministers posing as authorized by Christ who solicit your money and lord it over you; they are wolves in sheep's clothing, promising liberty when they themselves are slaves of corruption. From the Word of the Lord within: "Just like Judaism was taken over by the enemy, so has Christianity, which is corrupt through and through. There is no church in the world that Christ set up specifically. I work with the blind; but if you think you can see, and you are not with me in heaven, I will make you a laughingstock."]

4 Leave them alone and disregard them; they are blind guides and teachers. From the Word of the Lord within: "There are millions of blind guide preachers. I work with the blind; but if you think you can see, and you are not with me in heaven, I will make you a laughingstock." In Zechariah, the Lord states his anger against the blind guides: My anger is kindled against the shepherds and I will punished the goat leaders. Zech 10:3. The shepherds of Christendom are all goat leaders. They have deceived their followers to believing a false salvation; so their followers remain sinning goats, rather than sinless sheep. They ignore God's exclusions, his requirements, and his qualifying conditions. The ministers of Christendom think that salvation's Biblically stated requirements of cleansing, purity, perfection, and holiness are impossible. They don't know how to receive the changing power of God. These goat leaders are self-appointed; not appointed by the Holy Spirit for the perfecting of the saints; not taught, perfected, restored, and authorized by the Lord. So the goat leaders of Christendom read the dead letter of the Bible to their followers, rather than speak words supplied by the Holy Spirit, words which give life to their followers, changing them from goats to sheep. The letter kills, the spirit gives life. 2 Cor 3:6; The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life-giving. John 6:63.

The following is what the word of the Lord within has spoken concerning the blind guides of Christendom today:

"Beware of false prophets. There are millions of blind guide preachers. How can the ministers claim to be mine, when inside they are full of deceit and hypocrisy? They do everything for show. The gregarious make a living teaching the scriptures. Those who preach against perfection have a lack of earnest faith. False prophets appeal to unstable souls. I am against the shepherds, who have prophesied a false salvation. They have taken the Bible and made it an unholy thing used to justify their immersion in sin. They have trivialized the Bible. They gutted what Jesus had to say; Jesus is ad tunes. They forget about me and teach errors. They teach the commandments of men; in vain do they worship me. They throw the word 'righteousness' around without any understanding of what it means. There is no hope; there is no guidance, other than 'study the scriptures.' Woe be to them, for they have coupled an external form between the love of God to man. Ten words from Him are better than ten copied letters. They cannot understand what the Spirit is doing. Their preaching only conveys the pride of Samaria. Outside the faith, they are teaching an equilibrium between good and evil. The leaders of Christianity are dogs — blind, dumb, ignorant dogs; professing to know everything, they know nothing; professing to know everything, they live their lives as fools. Those who follow the advice of these unpurified leaders, their life is like a bubble. I refuse to answer them. We deliberately ignore those of great repute. The leader of their army is Lucifer. They want to be sons; they recognize the scripture, 'he that is born of God has no sin,' but they blithely go on. These people are far from me, living in sin and teaching others the inevitability of sin until death. I further decry those who make a living preaching the scriptures."

True shepherds speak words from the Spirit of God immediately before speaking; as Paul said: Which things also we speak, not in the words, which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit instructs; explaining spiritual things with spiritual words. 1 Cor 2:13; and as Peter said: If any man speaks, let him speak with God's words [oracles]; 1 Pet 4:11. But the goat leaders speak words from their carnal minds, which are enmity against God, and from the evil imaginations of their hearts. Even Jesus did not judge, speak, or act without the Spirit's specific prompting. Jesus said:

Of my own self, I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, John 5:30
For I do not speak from myself [not my own words], but the Father who sent me, himself commands me what I should say and what I should speak.
And I know that [to obey] his command is life everlasting. Therefore, whatever
I speak is just as the Father tells me to speak. John 12:49-50
The Son is can do nothing of Himself [by his own will],
but only does what he sees the Father do. John 5:19
He who speaks from himself [speaking his own words] seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent him, that man is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him. John 7:18

If Jesus, as great as He is and was, would only speak the words He heard from the Father; then how much more should we be careful to speak nothing about God or Jesus unless we hear the exact words to say at that moment. Any man who speaks of God or Christ without the Spirit's specific promptings is seeking his own glory, and he is estimating himself to be greater than Christ, for Christ said: The disciple is not above his master, but everyone who is perfect [purified, restored to the spiritual image of God, specifically authorized, and perfected] will be like his master, Luke 6:39-42. Those that speak and/or work for God without being specifically ordered in each and every word and action, are essentially claiming their own words and deeds are superior to what Jesus' would be if he had made his own decisions about what to say and do; the Master sees everything to do and hears everything to say before speaking. Anyone without perfection, not having been sent, and speaking without God providing his words to speak, is a blind guide seeking his own glory, your money, and/or your admiration of him.

From the Word of the Lord within:

Like the evil shepherds of Israel, the preachers today feed themselves by taking money from their followers. Preaching for a salary is the error of Balaam, which is spiritual adultery, loving wages and profit — both Peter and Jude had some very grave things to say about those who solicit donations or preach for a salary. Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for pay, and perished in the rebellion of Korah. They have a heart exercised in covetous practices, and are accursed children — for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness. Peter, Paul, and Jesus all spoke strongly against preachers who took money from the flock, feeding themselves: the goat leaders of Christendom. "Come out from among them, and be separate," says the Lord, "and touch no unclean thing; and I will receive you. And I will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters," says the Lord Almighty. 2 Cor. 6:17. Leave them alone and disregard them; they are blind guides and teachers. Come out of her, my people, so that you do not share in her sins, and so you will not receive her plagues. Rev 18:4-7

From the Word of the Lord within: "There are millions of blind guide preachers; they shall all be put in jail. Don't ever be a blind guide."

The millions of blind guide preachers will not get out of Hell until everyone whom they have misled are released from Hell; he who leads into captivity will go into captivity, Rev 13:10. In the eyes of the world, the preachers are held with great esteem. But many who are first will be last; and the last first. Mat 19:30

There is a web page, How to Identify a Blind Guide or False Prophet, devoted to the doctrines of false prophets/blind guide preachers vs. true prophets/ministers to help you distinguish a true preacher/teacher from a false preacher/teacher.
