FAITH COMMENTARY
" Fly-A-Way Concluded"

In last week’s article 1 Thes. 4-17 KJV showed Fly-A-Way to be a confusing doctrine and now Ezekiel 13:17-18 KJV shows God against those teaching it today:

Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them,

God is telling you that Fly-A-Way originates in the heart of man (daughters of thy people) and not His. Knowing that this prophecy takes place in your lifetime, He instructs you to prophesy against them; Verse 18 continues:

And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?

These verses use pillows and kerchiefs to illustrate Fly-A-Way blocking the truth of God’s Return. Hunting souls is equated to saving them as Ezekiel 13:19 KJV continues to explain:

And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?

Those teaching Fly-A-Way (a doctrine of lies) do pollute God’s people. For a few pieces of bread (your dollars and pennies) they teach you that Christ is coming to fly you away.

Not so because Satan comes five months earlier using Fly-A-Way as a means of convincing you that he is Christ.

Ezekiel 13: 20-21 KJV shows God striking out against those using pillows and kerchiefs to hide the truth that leads to hunting souls and Flying-A-Way:

Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.

Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

Removing pillows and kerchiefs exposes Fly-A-Way and tearing you away from this lie means you are no longer in its hand to be hunted. Recognizing Fly-A-Way as the lie it is eliminates any possibility of you accepting Satan as your Lord.

Ezekiel 13: 22 KJV summarizes believing in Fly-A-Way:

Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:

 


 

Fly-A-Way is a doctrine of lies and these lies will hurt you and they will make you sad. The wicked are strengthened by a promise they cannot deliver…Life!

Ezekiel 13: 23 KJV ends this chapter and your update on Fly-A-Way prophecy:

Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

Vanity represents the emptiness that Fly-A-Way leaves you with and divine divinations, being no more, is God removing the lies that make you sad; Webster’s tells you what “divination” means:

The art or practice that seeks to foresee or foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge usually by means of augury or by making use of a psychical condition of the diviner in which supernatural powers are assumed to cooperate (as in the case of a spiritualistic medium or a crystal gazer)

You can rest assured that there is nothing hidden or supernatural when God talks about returning to you.

These verses, opening eyes to the truth of Fly-A-Way, poses this question: Are mine opening?
