The Watchman’s Message
God has given the watchmen a very simple and clear message to bring to the people of Israel. The hard part is not the message but its declaration. Confronting people of their sin is not easy, for either the one who speaks or the one who hears.
Israel did not want to hear about her sin and God’s judgment. Even today Israel, like many people, do not want to change and are happy with their lives.
Most would admit that they want to be and to do good, but want to live according to their own standards. But God’s standards are so much higher than ours. He will reject a life-time of good works for one sin!
“Therefore you, O son of man, say to the children of your people: ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness; nor shall the righteous be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’
PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO HEAR THE WARNINGS AND REPENT BEFORE JUDGMENT COMES.
