Scripture: Ezekiel 13:17-19

God goes on to tell why these prophets did not get the job done. It was because they did not pass the money test. Because they did not pass the money test, they did not have the discernment and consequently they did not bring the tempered mortar. The fruit of that was that people in the church that God wanted to live died early. And people in the world that God wanted to perish in judgment, that judgment did not come. Verse 19 makes it very clear, “And will you profane Me among My people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, killing people who should not die, and keeping people alive who should not live…” When the prophets do not do what God calls them to do, then needed judgment does not come to take away the wicked. When prophets do not do what they should, the enemy takes the life of the righteous and leaves the wicked. When the prophets step into the fullness of what God has called them to do, the wicked die early and the righteous have their lives extended. In this passage, Ezekiel makes it clear. Are we expecting God to do what He said? It is time to stand up in the full measure of what God has called us to be.
