Jeremiah 23:21-22

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran [ahead of me]. I have not spoken to them, yet they have prophesied. [Only follow; do not run ahead of the Lord's leading you exactly where to go and what to do and say. From the Word of the Lord within: " I was surely sent; as I was sent, so too must you be. Master following. You do as God has directed and only that; we do as He tells us. Everyone hear what the Spirit says; this you do." George Fox described those who run ahead : "Those who run before their guide are vagabonds and wanderers."]

 22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
