Did You Know?

DID YOU KNOW the Pope titles himself “the Good Shepherd”? Since Jesus pro-claimed he was the Good Shepherd, (John. 10:11 and 14) we recognize this as a blasphemy that Our Lord will not take lightly. Zech. 11:17 warns:
“ Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.” (Compare Matt. 6:22-23, Luke. 11:34-36)

DID YOU KNOW Daniel prophesied: “…the ROBBERS OF THY PEOPLE shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.[?]” (11:14) Jeremiah identified them in 23:30: “Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that STEAL MY WORDS every one from his neighbour.” (Emphasis mine)

DID YOU KNOW Jesus said: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites![?] for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.” (Mat. 23:27)

DID YOU KNOW when the high priest, Ananias, commanded the apostle Paul to be struck in the face, Paul answered, “God shall smite thee, thou whited wall….”[?] (Compare with Eze. 13:10-16)

DID YOU KNOW Job censured the arrogant pretensions to superior know-ledge of his friends and advisors in 13:4-5? His advice?
“But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value. O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom. (What’s interesting here is that “forgers” means “plasterers,” see p.472 of the Wycliffe Bible Commentary. Do these kind of men comprise part of the group that build the “wall” with “un-tempered mortar”?)
