Blood on Our Hands
“When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him riot warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his’ iniquity; hut his blood will I require at thine hand. (Ezekiel 3:18)
Ezekiel had been called as a prophet and “watchman” (Ezekiel 3:17; 33:7) to warn the sinning Israelites of impending judgment because of their persistence in compromising their worship of the true God with the pagan pantheistic satanic love of the world worship of the Canaanite nations around them. Soon they had adopted the immoral lifestyles that almost invariably develop from diluted confidence in God as Creator/Savior.
One could easily draw a sharp parallel between ancient Judah and the apostasy and moral degeneration of modern Christendom. The wicked (that is, “the nations that forget God”) are surely going to be “turned into hell” (Psalm 9:17) if they do not soon repent, whether or not they hear the warning of any watchman. They have already rejected the evidence of God in creation and conscience, so they are “without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
Nevertheless, the Lord does call us who have His Word to do all we can “to warn the wicked from his wicked way. to save his life” (that is, in the present context, to tell them that their Creator and Judge has died for them, to become their Savior), if we fail to do this, then we become, in effect, their executioners with blood on our hands. Even the “righteous” need to be warned, “that the righteous sin not” (Ezekiel 3:21).
“Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked” and he ignores or rejects the warning, “thou hast delivered thy soul” (Ezekiel 33:9). We have a great responsibility, as well as a wonderful privilege, to warn men of impending judgment, and then to tell them of the Savior.
The time is short and the days are increasing in evil as never before. The rush toward judgment is at light speed and the American nation and the world are about to enter a time of “sorrows” Matt. 24:4-8. The American church is deeply mired into sin! The only message we need to hear is REPENT and turn from our sins, then God will restore our country, but not before we repent.
The end of our financial empire is at hand in less than 43 days, by September 29 our stock market will crash sending us into the darkest time we have ever seen. The American dream will be gone and we will face the judgment hand of God upon us, as we have turned our backs on God and his Holy Word.
Our direction should be to get right with God while we still can, find a bible believing fellowship and get knit together with real Christians. The book of Hebrews states that;” as we see the days drawing near to the end we should not neglect the meeting of ourselves together” as some are separating themselves from the true body of Christ. We stand on the Word of God, come and join with us and walk in God's will, his Word and let us love oneanother.
Yours for Christ,
