Summary: Watchman, what of the night? We are called of God to warn people while we stand on the wall staying ready, watching, and being vigilant. We are to give a clear warning of the consequences of sin.

This is part #3: READY, WATCHING AND WAITING (NOT WARNING)

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

We have used for our text verse:

1 Corinthians 14:8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself

to the battle?

Today we must guard the message that we are declaring to the church and to the world.

Our time and strength are limited, we must be about the Father's business.

ELISHA WAS CALLED OF GOD... WHEN THE EVIL KING REFUSED TO LISTEN,

HE WARNED AHAB AND JEZEBELOF THE VIOLENT DEATH WAS WAS COMING

BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN AND TREATMENT OF NABOTH...

1 Kings 21:19 And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed,

and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In

the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.

20 And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found

thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.

21 Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, ---

23 And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of

Jezreel. 24 Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field

shall the fowls of the air eat.

GOD CALLS MEN AND WOMEN TO BE WATCHMEN AND TO WARN PEOPLE

THAT GOD KEEPS GOOD RECORDS...

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 die; 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.

ARE WE REALLY WATCHING AND BEING VIGILANT AND WARNING THIS GENERATION?

WHAT DOES GOD'S WORD SAY?

Ezekiel 33:4 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 watchman's hand.
