What the Watchman Said

March 7, 2017

 

 

I listened to a fellow called a watchman just the other day

It seemed dark and scary all the things he had to say

I suffered much discomfort from listening to his words

Wondering, was he speaking truth or if he was absurd.

 

He spoke of things that were to come in the days ahead

I was quite disconcerted from his words of dread.

Isn’t God a God of love who protects us all with care?

I’d rather hear of peace on earth not warnings of despair.

 

Let those with ears hear what the Spirit says:

 

The watchman is but a messenger and the message he cannot hold

He is under a commandment to warn those in the fold.

The message of love you long to hear is not lost in warning

And peace is not forgotten because a storm is forming.

 

The love of God is expressed to us through the watchman’s cry

Peace is found in Jesus Christ but we still must face the coming strife

We are not given a spirit of fear, we don’t face anything alone

Too many have forgotten we are aliens and this world is not our home.

 

We have become too insulated and don’t want to be inconvenienced

We have fallen away from the truth and fallen from obedience

The world is looking for a message that will simply tickle their ears

And the watchman is ignored and the message is not revered.

 

It can be very disconcerting to think of what tomorrow brings

To think the life we know will take flight on unseen wings.

It is a man of faith who sees God’s hand within these scenes.

Through faith we find the Father’s everlasting arms where we can lean.

 

Not everyone is called to move to a distant land

Not everyone is called to put a weapon in his hand

Not everyone is called to be a watchman

Not everyone is called to bear the weight of a capstan.

 

But everyone is called to face tomorrow on their knees

The call is clear for repentance before this moment flees.

Everyone is called to heed the warnings of coming blackness,

Many are called, but few will come, to be laborers in the harvest.

 

God will not reside in the box you’ve built and His words will never change.

In the Garden, Eve fell for a message where the truth was rearranged.

Like Adam or like Eve is our rejection of God’s word any different today?

We want the message to feed our lusts and our own desires portray.

 

There is coming a day when deception will be removed from all creation

And God will destroy the covering that blankets all the nations

A day of judgement is foretold when God’s anger burns

And righteousness, by all the earth will then be learned.

 

To reject the words the true and Godly watchmen speak

Is to reject that Almighty God His covenants will keep.

Disbelief of tribulation is also to reject His coming Kingdom

And rejecting Truth will lead to disabling fear of the coming bedlam.

 

The old order of things must pass away so that all things become new.

This isn’t a message for the ancients; it is a current word for me and you.

If prophecy isn’t true then from the Bible the book of Jeremiah must be removed,

And if watchman cannot be trusted the book of Psalms cannot be approved.

 

Genesis would have to go because it is prophetic too,

And Deuteronomy prophesied that the desert one day will bloom;

Isaiah, Corinthians, Ezekiel, Luke, Daniel, Hosea, Joel and Amos

There is not a book in the Bible without a message to warn us.

 

Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk and Zephaniah,

Malachi, Haggai, Revelation, Matthew and Zechariah

All tell of the coming Kingdom and shout the warning signs

From cover to cover God’s Word proclaims the things that are assigned.

 

On the assigned day, at the assigned time, the King of Kings will come

Those who hear the warnings and see the signs will rejoice to see the Son.

Far too many don’t understand the message is about God’s Kingdom,

And the reclaiming of the earth and destroying the existing whoredom.

 

But rejecting the message and the messenger also happened in antiquity

The prophets were stoned by those who believed they were acting very religiously.

Those martyred for the message could fill the books of history

And the ultimate messenger who was in fact The Message died on a hill called Calvary.

 

Yes, the message can be hard to hear and can bring feelings of trepidation,

Revealing the coming desolations, tribulation and great abominations,

But for the Blood bought child of God here is our prayer, “Thy Kingdom come.”

And the glory of God’s Kingdom is so much more than we could ever fathom.

 

Because denial leads to torment

The Watchman cannot relent

The message is to repent

Before our time is spent.

 

Don’t be discouraged by the things the Watchman said

It is time for the child of God to be lifting up his head

Hearken to the Word of God and what the Watchman said

Evil will soon be judged and soon the bride will wed.

 

The listener must beware and search the Scripture to see if things be true

Don’t just accept what the Watchman said, you are responsible too

No other gospel than the Word of God is acceptable to preach

The Truth is always found by those willing to pray and seek.

 

Acts 17:11, Gal. 1:6-9, 1Ch. 28:9
