The Doctrine of the Scriptures.
Look to God's instructions and teachings! People who contradict his word are completely in the dark.
For the LORD has poured out on you a spirit of deep sleep. He has closed the eyes of your prophets and visionaries.
We grope like the blind along a wall, feeling our way like people without eyes. Even at brightest noontime, we stumble as though it were dark. Among the living, we are like the dead.
Calamity will follow calamity; rumor will follow rumor. They will look in vain for a vision from the prophets. They will receive no teaching from the priests and no counsel from the leaders.
Because of all this, you will no longer talk of seeing visions that you never saw, nor will you make predictions. For I will rescue my people from your grasp. Then you will know that I am the LORD."
"In that day," says the Sovereign LORD, "I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth while it is still day.
"The time is surely coming," says the Sovereign LORD, "when I will send a famine on the land--not a famine of bread or water but of hearing the words of the LORD.
