Called to be a Watchman

THE MINISTRY DESCRIPTION of a WATCHMAN, a role which I am honored to have been called to live.  This will help explain the reason behind many of my postings.  It is to save others.

Ezekiel 3:17-21

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.

When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.

But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

Again, when a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block before them, they will die. Since you did not warn them, they will die for their sin. The righteous things that person did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.

But if you do warn the righteous person not to sin and they do not sin, they will surely live because they took warning, and you will have saved yourself.”
