This passage was my call from The LORD to be a Watchman Prophet.
It came, I’m not sure, but some 40-odd years ago, but it was not until 1995 that The LORD sent a mentor into my life. The rest, as they say, is history.
My point in this post is to use this same passage, emphasising that final verse, as a message, a serious warning, to the wayward church throughout the world.
This is about to Manifest in these days — Now!
A Watchman and His Message
“Again the word of The LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them:
‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself.
But he who takes warning will save his life.
But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’
“So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me.
When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.
Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
“Therefore you, O son of man, say to the house of Israel: ‘Thus you say, “If our transgressions and our sins lie upon us, and we pine away in them, how can we then live?”’
Say to them: ‘ As I live,’ says The LORD God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live.
Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’” Ezekiel 33:1-11 NKJV
As previously said, My point in this post is to use that same passage, emphasising that final verse, as a message, a serious warning, to the wayward Church throughout the world.
So I am sounding my shofar as a warning, maybe the final warning, that The Sword of The LORD, Jehovah Chereb, is about to divide His Church from the Apostate Church that has ignored all warnings thus far.
There is very real exposure and calamity coming to much of the church as it exists today.
- Apostasy is rife
- Heresy is rife
- Blasphemy is rife
- False teaching is rife
- False apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors, and evangelists are all rife and running amok among The Body of Believers today.
- False doctrines abound
- False Christs also abound
- Deceiving spirits are causing the great falling away as per 2 Thessalonians 2:3
- Much of The Church has become a money-making machine.
Therefore the trumpet is sounded, the warning is given, and the Word of The LORD says this –
“Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of God?’” — Paraphrased from Ezekiel 33:11
The time for True Repentance, maybe the final call, is Now!
Turn from your evil ways.
It is time for Unity in The Remnant Church, and for that Church to be The Church that Jesus designed it to be.
I leave you with this redemptive promise
“When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-16 NKJV
