My fellow Watchmen on the Wall,We need to rethink our strategy. Many of the scoffers/lukewarm are totally ignoring us, thinking we are just "radicals".Therefore, our continued warnings are falling on deaf ears. We need to SHOW them that they are also COMMANDED TO WATCH and therfore, ALL believers are supposed to be watching!We need to prove to them that watching for the return of Jesus was NEVER optional; as Yeshua repeatedly commanded His followers to WATCH & He even provided the signs we are to watch for.They need to see that to NOT watch is direct disobedience to His Word and is therefore, SIN!The enemy has deluded the Church into thinking it is optional and that we, who are obedient, are the "crazy fringe". That is why they just ignore and/or ridicule us.If all of God's people were watching as commanded, just think what the Internet would be like!MILLIONS would be sounding the alarm and the lost would HAVE to pay attention!It is vital to set the record straight and show other believers that they are living contrary to & violating God's Word by NOT watching! This serious infraction may possibly cause many to be left behind.Our fellow believers need to be shown this truth. If so, they would see that they need to open their eyes and ears and not only listen to us, but be on the watch themselves!WE need to PROVE to them, through the Scriptures, that we HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO WATCH and that it IS NOT OPTIONAL!!Ezek 3:17 - I HAVE MADE THEE A WATCHMAN.Mt 24:42 - WATCH THEREFORE.Mt 25:13 - WATCH THEREFORE.Mk 13:35 - WATCH YE THEREFORE.Mk 13:37 - AND WHAT I SAY UNTO YOU I SAY UNTO ALL, WATCH.Luke 21:36 - WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS, THAT YE MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS.1 Thes 5:6 - LET US NOT SLEEP, AS DO OTHERS; BUT LET US WATCH.Luke 12:37 - BLESSED ARE THOSE SERVANTS, WHOM THE LORD WHEN HE COMETH SHALL FIND WATCHING.Heb 9:28 - ; AND UNTO THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM SHALL HE APPEAR THE SECOND TIME.Rev 3:3 - IF...THOU SHALT NOT WATCH, I WILL COME ON THEE AS A THIEF, AND THOU SHALT NOT KNOW WHAT HOUR I WILL COME UPON THEE.Rev. 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.Then, there are are all the Rapture parables about the Master (Yeshua) going off and coming back and finding the servant (believers) who are not watching and not ready. As such they are cast off where"there is weeping and gnashing of teeth" (left behind to face the Tribulation).
Time is short!
