There is a part of the prophecy from Ezekiel 34 that will come to pass in the millennial reign of Y’shua as the Son of David on earth for 1,000 years. Those who fleece from believers and treat them as prey to feed themselves, making themselves wealthy beyond daydreams will be removed personally by the King.
21Since you shove with flank and shoulder, butting all the weak ones with your horns until you have scattered them abroad, 22I will save My flock, and they will no longer be prey. I will judge between one sheep and another.
One may ask, what will people like Kenneth Copeland, Joel Osteen and Joyce be doing in the 1,000 years? The Word of God says to Ezekiel that He will uphold justice with the fat shepherds.
16I will seek the lost, bring back the strays, bind up the broken, and strengthen the weak; but the sleek and strong I will destroy. I will shepherd them with justice.’
From the Book of Ezekiel 34, we shall first ask, if the likes of mega million preachers above fall into the league spoken of by the Word of God (Y’shua) to be those fat sheep.
If the answer is “Yes”, then they actually are past the point of know return.
Let us dig into the mine of the Scripture.
Normally people are not getting the severity of this phrase: I AM against you.
But we may gain understanding from similar appearances of this condemnation by the Word of God. In
2b ‘Woe to the shepherds of Israel, who only feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed their flock? 3You eat the fat, wear the wool, and butcher the fattened sheep, but you do not feed the flock.4You have not strengthened the weak, healed the sick, bound up the injured, brought back the strays, or searched for the lost. Instead, you have ruled them with violence and cruelty. 5They were scattered for lack of a shepherd, and when they were scattered they became food for all the wild beasts. 6My flock went astray on all the mountains and every high hill. They were scattered over the face of all the earth, with no one to search or seek for them.’
I AM against the shepherds.
However, when we read Ezekiel 28, the same verbiage was used against the territories of satan,
20 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 21“Son of man, set your face against Sidon and prophesy against her. 22And you are to declare that this is what the Lord GOD says:‘Behold, I am against you, O Sidon,and I will be glorified within you.They will know that I am the LORDwhen I execute judgments against herand demonstrate My holiness through her.23I will send a plague against herand shed blood in her streets;the slain will fall within her,while the sword is against her on every side.
Then they will know that I am the LORD.and again against Hophra the Pharoah of Egypt in Ezekiel 29,Behold, I am against you,O Pharaoh king of Egypt,O great monster who liesamong his rivers,who says, ‘The Nile is mine;I made it myself.’
It is then we come to realize that the fat shepherds of today will end up in the same fate as satan and Pharoah.They will lose everything.
The former cherub was and is a master of traffic.
5By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: 6Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;
The Pharoah was proud beyond human with all his wealth.
Both in chapters 28 & 29 respectively put themselves up and pass themselves as gods.
