The idols speak deceitfully, diviners see visions that lie; they tell dreams that are false, they give comfort in vain. Therefore the people wander like sheep oppressed for lack of a shepherd.
Any victory begins with the recognition of the enemy. Here, we see God warn about diviners. This speaks of men that attempted to predict the future by examining the liver of a sacrificed animal. This is speaking of the occult and demonic inspiration. Satan imitates and even mocks the things of God. God has His prophets and the devil has his which are, in fact, false prophets. God's prophets communicate with Him directly and share His word with the people. Here, we are warned that these false prophets will feed the people lies from Satan who is the father of lies. We also see that it is the so-called leaders who receive this demonic inspiration and tell the lies. The people are compared to sheep without a shepherd. When sheep are not properly led, they do not pay attention. As they graze for food, they will wander away from the flock where they can be devoured by predators. In the case of the last days, there will be false shepherds (leaders) who, through this demonic influence, mislead people.
