The Watchman on the Tower
To be a Watchman on the Tower unto the people is no small assignment. It carries with it a tremendous responsibility to warn the people of impending calamities if they refuse to alter their downward course. I quote from Ezekiel in the old Testament.
EZEKIEL 33: 3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and Warn the people; 4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh Warning shall deliver his soul. 6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be Not Warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the (your) watchman’s hand.
EZEKIEL 3: 17 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. 18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely adie; and thou givest him Not Warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 19 Yet if thou Warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. 20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him Warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
God saves the Watchman & Kills the Rest
I The LORD give unto you a COMMANDMENT to WARN the people & YOU are left without excuse…
82 Therefore, they are left without excuse, and their sins are upon their own heads.
We should Waste and Wear Out our lives in bringing to Light ALL the hidden things of Darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven— 14 These should then be attended to with great earnestness. 15 Let no man count them as small things; for there is much which lieth in futurity, pertaining to the saints, which depends upon these things. 16 You know, brethren, that a very large ship is benefited very much by a very small helm in the time of a storm, by being kept workways with the wind and the waves.
It does NOT say expose All lightness, WHY? because without darkness you would NOT know the light... (Example: I cannot tell you the danger of fire without being negative!)
New age: positive vs. negative emotional speech is found in the scriptures and is *lukewarm speech.
"But let your communication be `yea, yea' or `nay, nay'; for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil." Matthew 5:37
(Scripture footnote *lukewarm = Apostasy)
God doesn't have any use for paid shills.
Jesus referred to them as "hirelings" because they work for money and not out of any concern for those that they preside over.
Those that truly seek after God will not recognize any other voice but His. They will not bow down to any earthly authority but His.
