Jeremiah 14:14 And the LORD said to me: "The prophets are prophesying lies in My name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a lying vision, worthless divination, and the deceit of their own minds.
In the first of three consecutive verses, God tells Jeremiah that "the prophets" are false prophets and that He has not sent them nor authorised them to speak. They are speaking solely on their own account and their words are complete falsehood. We must be able to exercise discernment so that we can tell the false prophets of our age (and they are many) from those who clearly bring us the word of God, lest we be deceived about what God is doing and will yet do in our days.
