Watchman, what of the Night?
Posted On May 3, 2016
2015: Almighty God’s Judgment Becomes Irrevokable: Nahum 3:5: “’Behold, I am against you,’ declares the LORD of hosts; ‘And I will lift up your skirts over your face, and show to the nations your nakedness and to the kingdoms your disgrace.'” (NASB)
May 2, 2016: The Mere-Professing Christian’s Heart Begins to Harden: Ezekiel 33:30–33: “But as for you, son of man, your fellow citizens who talk about you by the walls and in the doorways of the houses, speak to one another, each to his brother, saying, ‘Come now, and hear what the message is which comes forth from the LORD.’ And they come to you as people come, and sit before you as My people, and hear your words, but they do not do them, for they do the lustful desires expressed by their mouth, and their heart goes after their gain. And behold, you are to them like a sensual song by one who has a beautiful voice and plays well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not practice them. So when it comes to pass – as surely it will – then they will know that a prophet has been in their midst.” (NASB)
Warning: Deuteronomy 13:1–3: “If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” (NASB)
May 8, 2016: Ezekiel 34:8–10: “As I live, declares the Lord GOD, surely because My flock has become a prey, My flock has even become food for all the beasts of the field for lack of a shepherd, and My shepherds did not search for My flock, but rather the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock; therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I shall demand My sheep from them and make them cease from feeding sheep. So the shepherds will not feed themselves anymore, but I shall deliver My flock from their mouth, that they may not be food for them.”‘” (NASB)
May 15, 2016: Isaiah 34:1-2: “Draw near, O nations, to hear; and listen, O peoples! Let the earth and all it contains hear, and the world and all that springs from it. For the LORD’S indignation is against all the nations, and His wrath against all their armies; He has utterly destroyed them, He has given them over to slaughter.” (NASB)
Holy – Holy – Holy is the Lord God Almighty!
With a Grieving Heart,
