The Watchman

30 Aug

The Watchman…

The Bible speaks much of the watchmen. They were the ones appointed to watch over the city, to protect it, and to sound the alarm in the face of danger.

When were the watchmen on duty? It was during the night, when darkness covered the land, and when the people of the city slept that the watchman’s call was especially critical.

When we look at what’s happening in the world, the direction of the end times, it’s easy to feel discouraged or overwhelmed. But we shouldn’t. It’s the times of darkness when the watchmen’s ministry is most important.

So the darker you see the world becoming, the more critical it is to take up your mantle as God’s watchman. It’s the call to stay spiritually awake in a time of spiritual sleep, to stay separate, to keep vigilant – vigilant in prayer, vigilant in the word, vigilant in purity and holiness, in righteousness, and worship – and to all the more sound the alarm to those who are perishing.

It is night, the people are sleeping, and they need the watchman more than ever. You are the watchman – do your duty!

I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, Isaiah 62:6

Keep vigilant in purity, holiness, and righteousness, and sound the alarm to those who are perishing. Be a watchman!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
