We Christians were actually givin manywarnings about these bad guys and what they would do. The warnings are allaround the new testament.
1 PETER 5  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a ROARINGLION, walketh about, SEEKING WHOM HE MAYDEVOUR:
Watch out for these roaring lions!
MATT.7  Because strait is the gate, andnarrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardlythey are RAVENING WOLVES.
Beware of false these prophets. They are RAVENINGWOLVES. Also implied here is that “the many” will follow these false prophetsand but a few will take the way of life.
ACTS 20  For I know this, that after mydeparting shall grievous WOLVES ENTER IN among you, not sparing the flock.Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, TO DRAW AWAYDISCIPLES after them.
The GRIEVOUS WOLVES were there from thebeginning
EPH.4  This I say therefore, and testifyin the Lord, that ye henceforth WALK NOT AS OTHER GENTILES walk, in the VANITYof their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from thelife of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness oftheir heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over untolasciviousness, to work all UNCLEANNESSwithGREEDINESS.
Well, I found all these warnings from the newtestament in one scripture. The Day of the Lord scriptures are so great. Since “thatday” has not yet arrived no one can claim that the scripture is for ancient Israel and doesnot apply to christians. Day of the Lord scriptures do apply to christians(those who believe that Jesus came) and these scriptures will come to pass. Tosee what these ROARING LIONS and RAVENOUS WOLVES have done, simply read andbelieve the Word.
EZEK.22  And the word of the LORD cameunto me, saying, Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is notcleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. There is A CONSPIRACYOF HER PROPHETS in the midst thereof, like a ROARING LION ravening the prey; THEYHAVE DEVOURED SOULS; they have taken the treasure and precious things; theyhave made her many widows in the midst thereof. HER PRIESTS HAVE VIOLATEDMY LAW, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference betweenthe holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the UNCLEANAND THE CLEAN, and HAVE HID THEIR EYES FROM MY SABBATHS, and I am profanedamong them. Her princes in the midst thereof are like WOLVES RAVENING THEPREY, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get DISHONEST GAIN. And her prophetshave daubed them with untempered morter, SEEING VANITY, and divining lies untothem, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken
A conspiracy of the prophets. HID THEIR EYESFROM MY SABBATHS! They meant to do it and they sure did pull it off despite thewarnings
I posted these scriptures on another thread (4 shadows) and someone made the claim that Ezek.22 was not a Day of the Lord scripture. He made the claim it was a scripture that already has come to pass. Someone pointed out that we were wandering away from the original theme of the thread (4 shadows) and i ended my discussion on the matter and start a new thread here to discuss it. So, is Ezek.22 a Day of the Lord scripture or is it not.
