"When I say to the wicked, 'O wicked man, you will surely
die,' and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that
wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require
from your hand. But if you on your part warn a wicked man to turn
from his way and he does not turn from his way, he will die in his
iniquities, but you have delivered your life." - Ezekiel
33:8 & 9
We are the watchman. God has given us the task of warning people
that they are headed for death. Not just physical death, but spiritual
death in the lake of fire. Are you doing this?
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
- Genesis 1:1
This is one of the most important verses in the Bible. God created
everything, including us. That means He owns everything, including
us. We are accountable to God.
"Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were
making an appeal through us..."
2 Corinthians 5:20
We have been made into a new person and we have the good news (gospel)
about savation through trusting in Jesus Christ. God has chosen
us as His ambassadors to bring this good news to the world, going
and making disciples.
"For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of
God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has
not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline."
2 Timothy 1:6 & 7
We should go in boldness, love and discipline. How can we say we
love, if we are not willing to tell people about the coming judgment?
This does not mean going out and thumping people with a Bible. That's
not loving. We are to be humble, loving, gentle and caring.
