The Watchman

The Watchman's business is to warn sinners of their misery and danger. He must warn the wicked to turn from their way, that they may live. If souls perish through his neglect of duty, he brings guilt upon himself. (Mathew Henry's Bible commentary)

"When I say to the wicked, `O wicked man, you will 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 from your hand. "But if you on your part warn a wicked man to turn from his way and he does not turn from his way, he will die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your life. (Ezekiel 33:8-9)

Dear friends, How many of us know loved ones, neighbours, co-workers, etc who are not living right? (ourselves included!), when was the last time we warned them of the danger of their present lifestyle? For everyone you come across, you have been given a special duty by God to let them know about his love and his available mercy before it's too late.

God's will is not that men should perish, but that all may come to know him and partake in his gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

....."Say to them, `As I live!' declares the Lord GOD, `I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die, ...........' (Ezekiel 33:11)

....."So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish (Matthew 18:14)

...."The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.(2 Peter3:9)

Do this now! warn your loved ones!!! You are a watchman .......
