“”When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman,
3, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people,
4, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.
5, He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life.
6, But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman”s hand.” (Ezekiel 33:2-6)
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Pastor Mike Taylor;
Each of us are watchmen on the wall. If you stand behind a pulpit or preach to a congregation in whatever media you use, you have a responsibility to warn those who are in danger of hell fire and all that it represents. God does not send anyone to hell, as it is a decision that each of us must make, but the Word of God must start with men and women who are commissioned by God to take the Word of Truth to those who are in their sins.
Whether a minister believes he is a watchman or not, he is commissioned by God to spread the Gospel to the lost. He is to preach the penalty of sin. He is to abandon a feel good “gospel”, prosperity gospel, or a social speech of humanism and being just a “good citizen”. This won’t save anyone. It will not warn those who are walking the wide road and gate to destruction, but will only placate them that they are OK…they are not OK, as they do not have Jesus in their hearts. It is a minister’s job to take the message of salvation to his congregation, his community and the rest of the world.

Prepping for ‘Mr. Fix-It’
Society is being prepped for the Antichrist, and as prophecy-loving believers try to warn, the words are falling on a lot of deaf ears.
The stage is being set for a closing act. The players are getting into their proper positions. Heads of state are meeting to plot and scheme and deny even more rights. In places like Australia, Lithuania, and Austria, good people are enemies of the state even though they are upstanding citizens.
World leaders have no comprehension they are majoring in minors. To them, it makes perfect sense to obsess over carbon emissions. During the Tribulation, this will fade from their memories as they cope with Seals and Trumpets and Bowls. These will spark “climate change” they cannot imagine!
Most receiving this newsletter are “watchmen.” Ezekiel 33 tells us that if you don’t warn, the blood is on your hands, so you cannot be silent.
Brace yourself to be shocked daily by things you read and watch. Satan is getting more active, and wickedness is rising, so God’s people must shine more brightly.
But for the believer, a glorious event will happen soon. It is known as the Rapture of the Church. It is any day. Any hour. Any minute. So don’t grow weary!
And yes, if a believer is a Rapture skeptic, they get the surprise of their life someday soon. Then you’ll have the privilege of saying, “I told you so.”
Won’t that be a glorious day?
Pastor Greg Laurie; Harvest Ministries
“God promises this in the book of Revelation, and He also gives us a promise of global peace. The Antichrist, however, will bring pseudo peace. During the first three-and-a-half years of the seven-year Tribulation, he will come across as a good guy. But in reality, he will be a bad guy. And the Scriptures say that he will use peace to deceive many. Ultimately, once Antichrist is taken out of the way, God will bring global peace.”

A New Year search for immortality – look to God or science? More and more people are searching for immortality in all the wrong places – and wrong times: (5) Transhumanism, Cryogenic Freezing, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and False Gods. The ‘big’ FIVE ‘5’.
Exclusive: Joseph Farah notes there’s only 1 path, a simple one that leads to eternal life
By Joseph Farah Published December 31, 2021 at 6:41pm WND
More and more people are searching for immortality in all the wrong places – and wrong times:
As we enter the New Year, there will be more of this. The media keep pumping out these illusions, I suspect, because most of those working in the press are spiritually lost. And there are plenty of billionaires around with too much money to waste. And lots of other lost people.
“Science,” with rare exceptions, is lost. For the most part, it is a discipline at odds with God, in competition with Him.
There’s only one way to achieve immortality, and that’s to follow the prescription of our Creator.
Follow His commandments, repent when you fall short, and love Him with all your heart, soul and mind.
The nice thing about this recipe is that it works every time. But, apparently, it seems TOO HARD!
I suppose if I didn’t accept there’s only one way to eternal life, I too might be severely tempted to find another way.
But, look at it this way: Would you like to see evil people live forever? Or would you like to see them held accountable for their actions? Would you like to see justice done? Wouldn’t God’s way be better?
This is an important question to ponder. God knows the desire of our hearts. He promises us perfect peace, perfect justice, perfect truth. He created us and placed us in the Garden of Eden. Mankind fell. Now He seeks to restore that Garden of Eden-like creation for us, but only for those who seek His righteousness above all else.
Ultimately, what it comes down to is this: Most people want to do what they want to do without any accountability. They want to write their own rules, even if they prefer that everyone else lived by God’s.
It’s a fantasy that science is going to allow just anyone to become immortal. God won’t have it. For goodness sake, He didn’t even let the builders of the Tower of Babel fulfill their impossible dream of reaching the heavens with brick and mortar.
Rebellion against God’s rules is a prescription for one thing – death.
There’s only one path to eternity for mortals – pleasing God.
He loves us so much He gave His only begotten Son over to a torturous death on the cross to atone for our sins, to give us hope, to welcome us as His beloved children into the world of forever.
But He didn’t offer universal salvation. You’ve still got to play by His rules. And Jesus’ rules are the same as the Father’s.
“Seek first seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
Don’t put other gods before Him – whether it’s government, science, witchcraft or money.
Don’t serve idols.
Don’t take His name in vain.
Remember the sabbath.
Honor your parents.
Don’t murder anyone.
Don’t be involved in sexual immorality if you seek immortality.
Don’t bear false witness against your neighbor.
Don’t covet your neighbor’s stuff.
Aren’t these good rules or Commandments?
Is it really impossible to follow them – even with the knowledge that if and when you fall short, repentance, forgiveness and mercy are there for you?
There is no better offer on the table – and there never will be.
I suppose you could wait and see what options science finds for you. But the odds are not good – not good at all. The Creator of the universe established the laws of science – like gravity, which cannot be explained, and inertia and the four laws of thermodynamics. I suppose He could rewrite them, but nobody else can.
So, I wouldn’t suggest waiting.
Get right with God today. It’s the best decision you will ever make.
Today’s a good day to begin – the New Year.
