Could VANITY be pointing to the LIES of the Church? Let's examine.

Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Ec 7:15 All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.

Ec 2:15 Then said I in my heart, As it happeneth to the fool, so it happeneth even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity.

2Pe 2:18 For when they speak great swelling WORDS OF VANITY, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

Eze 13:6 They have seen VANITY and LYING divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.

Eze 13:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken VANITY, and seen LIES, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.

Job 15:35 They conceive mischief (trouble, travail), and bring forth VANITY, and their belly prepareth deceit.

Ro 8:20 For the **creature** was made subject to VANITY, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

Ro 8:21 Because the **creature** itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Eze 13:9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see VANITY, and that divine LIES: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Jer 18:15 Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to VANITY, and they have caused them to **stumble** in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;

Mal 2:8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to **stumble** at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.

Jer 8:19 Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange VANITIES?

Ps 12:2 They SPEAK VANITY every one with his neighbour: with flattering LIPS and with a double heart do they speak.

Ps 31:6 I have hated them that regard LYING VANITIES: but I trust in the LORD.

Ec 6:4 For he cometh in with VANITY, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.

Ps 144:11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth SPEAKETH VANITY, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:


God appears to be associating vanity to the lies of the church in tribulation. It speaks lying vanities and in so doing causes the elect to be subject to the false prophets till the time when God unsealed the Bible to them. A revelation that allows them to escape the vanity of Babylon and find redemption in Christ.
