During my prayer, the LORD spoke to me this afternoon through Ezekiel 33:1-7, that He is raising up and commissioning watchmen in His House to take their positions and to send out His warning to the nations as He gives them. GOD is preparing the nations and His people for the sword that is coming upon the land, to bring judgment to each, according to His ways.
“The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them, If I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and make him their watchman, and if he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows the trumpet and warns the people, then if anyone who hears the sound of the trumpet does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet and did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But if he had taken warning, he would have saved his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person 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 a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me.””
In our response, let us stand in the gap for our nation and nations, and remember 2 Chronicles 7:13-15 for GOD is faithful to His Word. May GOD have mercy.
“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” 2 Chronicles 7:13-15.
