“23 “I am a God who is near,” says the Lord, “and not a God afar off.(Jeremiah 23:23-26)
24 Can a man hide in secret, and I not see him? Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord.
25 “I heard what the prophets said, and what lies they prophesied in My name, saying falsely, ‘I have dreamed a dream.’
26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, when they prophesy the wishes of their heart?””
God is closer to us than we think. He is among us, He is Emmanuel. We should be comforted by this fact, that same as we used to assured when we as kids in the presence with our parents. However, God is aware of our actions and teachings, if we teach false doctrine, He will know that.
