Peace when there is no peace.

Although this passage speaks of prophets who have visions of peace for Jerusalem when there was no peace (see v. 10), these verses should make us tremble. The modern message of evangelism is too quick to say that a sinner has peace with God merely because he has recited a “sinner’s prayer.” If there is no genuine repentance, there is no peace. The sinner is still under the wrath of God.

Ezekiel 13:15 “Thus will I accomplish My wrath on the wall and on those who have plastered it with untempered mortar; and I will say to you, ‘The wall is no more, nor those who plastered it, 16that is, the prophets of Israel who prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and who see visions of peace for her when there is no peace,’ ” says the Lord God.
