When the Lord says one thing and men say another, they set themselves up for destruction, as the Lord spoke through Ezekiel about false prophets,

“Therefore thus says the Lord God: ‘Behold, I am against your magic charms by which you hunt souls there like birds. I will tear them from your arms, and let the souls go, the souls you hunt like birds. I will also tear off your veils and deliver My people out of your hand, and they shall no longer be as prey in your hand. Then you shall know that I am the Lord. Because with lies you have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and you have strengthened the hands of the wicked, so that he does not turn from his wicked way to save his life. Therefore you shall no longer envision futility nor practice divination; for I will deliver My people out of your hand, and you shall know that I am the Lord’” (Ezekiel 13.20–23). 

It was not well for the false prophets then, and it will not be well for false prophets today. Please do not give heed to them, but reject them and accept only the Lord’s word.
