Beloved let’s look at this scriptures critically Ezekiel14v 1-5 Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me. 2 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 3 Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be inquired of at all by them? 4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols; 5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.
God was talking to his people in this passage of they coming to inquired of him which is one of God desire for all humanity , and God asking them must they come and inquired of him because of two reason been pointed out 3 Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be inquired of at all by them? Means they have already concluded in their heart what they want and they want to do. so why are they coming to say oh God we need your will over this matter what should we do E.G the issue of dressing if one have concluded it is not wrong before asking God it might be difficult because of conclusion in his mind, a young boy or girl have concluded in their mind even having sex together yet praying to God who he should marry when they have already choose themselves practical zing, undertaking, the roles and duties of marred people would God give a man two wife or a woman two husband no, a man who have concluded what he will do to his neighbor that offend him seeking God for healing with the evil in his heart watching in his eyes how he can execute his deadly desire, you see people who have wicked pans to ham their friend yet telling her the this year is your year, what can you say people who know that what they are suffering from is the consequence of their wrong yet holding grips of those wrong and still crying to God, pastors to pray and not ready to confess and repent

Part “B; I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols; this make it clear that he will answer them according to their own thought likewise if they visit a prophet to seek God or they seeking him by themselves he will answer them according to the evil they have in their heart means God make the prophet to prophesy force prophesy especially if the prophet lack divine guidance
1king22v19-22 And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. 20 And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. 21 And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. When you are deceptive the almighty God allowed likewise prophesy to come to such people that they can be overtaken and been destroy
Proverb23v 6-7 Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: 7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee
