Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at My mouth, and give them warning from Me.
God spoke these words to the prophet Ezekiel. A watchman in biblical times was one who was a guard or a sentry and they stood on the wall of the city warning its residents of impending danger. I know many folks who are “watchmen” today. These watchmen bring the Good News of Christ’s coming Kingdom and are firm and steadfast in their faith. They warn folks of the coming dangers of satan and his plan for this world and of the antichrist. If you hear a watchman speak – heed their warnings and their words. When Christ returns for His church be found standing firm walking in His ordinances and according to His Word. Living any other way means trouble ahead and God’s coming judgment!
Matthew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
