Watch Out!

November 22

                                     "For thus hath the LORD said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth."  Isaiah 21:6

"Thank GOD ... for the watchmen of our generation who do sound the alarm to arms."

 

There is a vigilance which is woefully absent about our forts of modern faith.  It is of no use if the watchman has sight to see, but a mouth which is mute.  Equally troubling, and the more obvious trend on the contemporary wall though, is the eloquent, but imperceptive.  These are not disloyal, just self appointed religious conscripts, with demonstrable leadership skills, who exhaust them all in the wrong direction.  "Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?"  Has the eclipse of light by evil blinded the ones sent and set to watch?  Modern movements of dogma, masquerading as Christian, are jutting wall expansion projects in seemingly every direction; while the watchers who walk atop, are oblivious to the spiritual dynamics of the day on either side of it.  "For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our GOD into lasciviousness, and denying the only LORD GOD, and our LORD JESUS CHRIST ... These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: ... These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage ... These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the SPIRIT."  Whole legions of Satanic spies have infiltrated our perimeter, and now reek havoc from within, while the real watchers on the wall sleep like the inner circle in Gethsemane.  

"Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid?"  The walls surrounding HIS church today are vast and awesome to behold, but for the most part, ill-attended.  Thank GOD however, for the watchmen of our generation who do sound the alarm to arms.  Though the faithful few continue to cry out, the reality of our situation is bleak.  From within the fortress of faith, their cries are largely scoffed at and ignored; from without, these soldiers of the cross are gradually being picked off, and silenced, by the wicked hordes who tighten their siege with each passing day. 

"Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed MY covenant, and trespassed against MY law."


For Love of Country
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
(16TH President of the United States)
"In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, I believe the Bible is the best gift GOD has given to man.  All the good SAVIOUR gave to the world was communicated through this book.  But for this Book we could not know right from wrong."
