Re: The Watchman

I don't want God ever to have to say to me, "I gave you your opportunity to tell the people and you didn't tell them. You wanted to be. ..liked by the people, and you wouldn't tell them.".. .I'd lose every friend in [this city]....I'd have you all turn your backs and walk away in cold anger from me, rather than face up to that awful moment when the cry of men and women is heard, "The summer is past [and we're not saved]...." and I know that I didn't do my part, to try to win men, to try to bring them to God. It isn't important that you like me, but it's tremendously important that you're washed in the blood of the Lamb. ..that you meet God in a saving encounter before that terrible day when you'll have to cry, "The opportunity's over...." --A.W.Tozer

"And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying, 2 Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them: When I bring the sword on it, on a land, and take one man from the people of the land, their borders, and set him for a watchman to them, 3 and when he sees the sword coming on the land, and he blows the ram's horn and warns the people, 4 and the hearer hearing the sound of the ram's horn, and does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him; his blood shall be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the ram's horn and took no warning; his blood shall be on himself. But he who took warning, he shall deliver his soul. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the ram's horn, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes a soul from them, he is taken in his iniquity. But I will require his blood from the watchman's hand. 7 And you, son of man, I gave you as a watchman to the house of Israel. And you shall hear the Word from My mouth and warn them from Me. 8 When I say to the wicked, O wicked one, dying you shall die! And you do not speak to warn the wicked one from his way, that wicked one shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood from your hand. 9 But you, if you warn the wicked from his way, to turn from it, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul." (Eze33:1-9) (VW)
