Most who live in the midwest know what a tornado siren sounds like, and anyone who loves his life will head for shelter when he hears the siren. If he doesn’t, his blood is upon his own hands. The person in each county whose job it is to turn the siren on is like the “watchman” of Ezekiel. His job was to warn the people by blowing the trumpet when an enemy was coming to attack. If the watchman didn’t sound the alarm when danger was coming, the responsibility for the shedding of others’ blood was upon him.
When Jesus returned to the Father, He gave the command to go and make disciples. We are like the watchman of old. There is a coming wrath, and it is our responsibility to go and share that they must repent, believe on Jesus for the remission of sins, and follow Him. (Matthew 16:24, 28:19, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:47, John 20:21) May we have clean hands and be found faithful.
“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).
