Blind Watchmen

His watchmen are blind, All of them know nothing. All of them are mute dogs unable to bark, Dreamers lying down, who love to slumber; Isaiah 56:10

What is a watchmen? In ancient times cities would have large towers where watchmen would be on lookout and alert the city of an enemy or invasion. God called the prophet Ezekiel to be a Watchmen in a spiritual sense to preach truth and call out Israel from their sins

We as Christians need to be watchmen or women also. But how can you be a watchmen if you don’t know anything? Or if you stayed mute when evil strikes? This is what God was telling Israel, there watchmen were being dumb and silent. Many Christians today are being dumb and silent also as we watch Satan continue to infiltrate the Church and lead many astray!

How can we stay ready? First we need to be truly baptized by the Holy Spirit, many Christians are not truly Born Again, therefor living by the flesh and not the Spirit. Repent and Confess Jesus is your Lord, then you will be filled with the Holy Spirit

Second we need to continually study the Word of God. Many Christians fall for false gospel because they don’t know the Bible. You need to stay sharp , don’t fall asleep during your watch! Alert the Church of False Teachers and False Religions that are invading the Church

And the dogs are greedy, they are not satisfied. And they are shepherds who have no understanding; They have all turned to their own way, Each one to his unjust gain, to the last one. Isaiah 56:11

The word Pastor is Latin for the word “Shepherd” . Pastors are the Shepherds for the Churches! If they are not qualified or out for their own personal gain, the Church will be left vulnerable to Satan. We need good Pastors and Watchmen (Christians) who are alert and sober for the devil is looking to devour us like a roaring Lion!

    The church is indeed asleep, while the enemy is infiltrating her. He seeks to assault the pure Bride of Christ in her slumber. She cannot fight well if she doesn’t know the Word, and she can’t fight at all if she’s drugged to unconsciousness. A pivotal – but largely ignored – downfall in the history of the Church was when a relationship with Christ was replaced with Christless external morals. We allowed the rock of our salvation – Christ – to be replaced by religious systems and rules – counterfeits which possess no power to save. (Being a Catholic or Anglican or Lutheran or Methodist or Southern Baptist or Mormon – or adhering to a denominational or religious system or affiliation – does not secure your salvation!)

    We allowed inward transformation to be replaced by outward good manners. “As long as you keep your shoes and nose clean, you’re good enough and you’re going to heaven.” Gone was the message of God’s wrath (and consequently any meaning or necessity of God’s grace). And then a new, more honest generation arose which didn’t see the point in faking morals on the outside when nothing’s different on the inside.

    Thank you for this warning.
