How Should we be reliable Watchmen for others?

Christian Civilization is clearly in danger of being destroyed – but there’s hope

 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Stand in the ways and see and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls… Also I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’.” Jeremiah 6:16-17

The key defining Bible passage about watchmen is Ezekiel 33. Read it. The concept is simple. Watchmen are appointed to watch out for the safety of others. It’s their duty. If nothing else, every Christian, especially heads of family, has someone else God wants them looking out for.

Since 1914, God’s people have been imperiled by a century-long war. It’s a wide-ranging conspiracy to defeat the nations that have been defenders of Christian civilization for centuries. You’ve heard plenty of bad news – you may even wonder, like the first century believers, if the Roman government is bringing on God’s judgment of the end of the world.

Do we tend to forget something? What did Jesus speak before leaving earth?

Matthew 28:18 – “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth…”

Do you think that gave the early church boldness after Pentecost to do what he said in the next part?

“…Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and the son and the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS EVEN TO THE END OF THE AGE.”

Recognising the Threats

The threats to Bible-believers are very real and extremely serious. Never have God’s Covenant people faced such extraordinary hostility from such an astonishing variety of enemies. Centuries of Evangelism and discipleship have been eroded. Historic advances are being weakened and threatened on every side. Schools and universities are hijacked by radical atheism. Churches are hijacked by secular humanism.

We have good reason to ask God, “O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name forever?” (Psalm 74:10). (more…)

95 Reforms for Reformation, Then and Now

Does the number 95 mean anything special to you… Especially in the light of the month of October?

When you think about what happened just 500 years ago in Germany – 95 points of discussion were posted on the community bulletin board, a church door – a lowly monk unintentionally set in motion a sequence of events that changed the world more than any other single action by a human being since the resurrection of Christ. 

 My missionary friend in South Africa, Dr. Peter Hammond, has provided for us profound insights that can impact our priorities for generations to come if we’ll take them to heart. 

Unprecedented

Western civilization has been blessed with the greatest freedom, productivity and prosperity ever known in history. The liberty, standards of justice and creativity enjoyed in Western civilization is a direct result of the Protestant Reformation of the 16th Century.

First Things First

Our Lord Jesus Christ taught:

“But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.”

Matthew 6:33
