  1. People are searching for God in all the wrong places. The Bible teaches, “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord” (Jeremiah 23: 16). And again, “My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations” (Ezekiel 13: 9). And finally, “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great wonders to deceive even, if possible, the elect” (Matthew 24: 24). Jesus alone is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14: 6).
