The Watchmen - Part 1

Dear Brethren,

“For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees.”  (Isaiah 21:6)

God is rapidly becoming fed-up with the national sins of America and Britain.  I’m beginning to believe that we have crossed the line of no return.  As America is in a cultural, moral, and ethical death-spiral, let’s read God’s own assessment of our status from His perspective:

“Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.”  (Hosea 4:1)

That is a fairly accurate picture of the United States and England today.  In the past, prophets were sent by God to warn the nations of the impending doom that was coming upon them as a result of their rejection of our Creator God.  Few people believe it, but we are the modern Israelites that the Bible refers to so often.

In the Holy Scriptures the one doing the warning is called the watchman.  When is the time for the warning to go out to the English speaking Israelitish nations?  God gave a warning message to Ezekiel that is meant to be heard by all the Israelites today.  Ezekiel’s warning never went to Israel because they had already dispersed in the nations.  Now is the time for the warning to go out.

"Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman."  (Ezekiel 33:2)

The sword has touched our land.  "Sword," is the Biblical word for all the weapons and means of waging war.  Our nation is in the throes of imminent collapse at the hands of those who are waging war by plundering our national strength.  Our national leaders have been given a mandate by their political electorate to pursue every godless way possible to obliterate the blessings that have been bestowed on us.

“Thy watchmen (Plural) shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.”  (Isaiah 52:8)

Who today is supposed to be warning the English speaking peoples of the earth?  What are the people of the land to be warned of?  God says to warn men of their wickedness.  Who, on the face of this earth, knows and understands that an end-time warning must go out to Israel – besides us?  Notice what God says to the watchman:

"When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand."  (Ezekiel 33:8)

This world's clergymen are too politically correct to address any of the sins of this nation.  It is most urgent that we come out from among them and have nothing to do with their ways.  God says:

"Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed."  (Ezekiel 33:29)

God’s Church brethren know very well what abominations God is speaking of.

"Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord God; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity."  (Ezekiel 5:11)

What will happen to America and Britain if they do not heed God's warning?  "He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him." That is not what God desires - He wants us to heed the warning and save our lives.  "But he that takes warning shall deliver his soul."  (Ezekiel 33:5)
