We Are Called To Be Watchmen

Updated on December 25, 2017

Introduction

Boker tov!! Shalom and greetings!! It’s a brand new day with brand new adventures and brand new opportunities to show Elohim’s love to the world beyond your front doors!! Look to your left. Now, look to your right. Look at the person who is front of you and at the person walking behind you. One of these people you see in your sight today has a need. Let Ruach HaKodesh lead you through discernment and wisdom to the need that someone has today that Elohim wants you to provide. Walk as an intentional talmid (disciple) with intention and with the intention to spread The Word, the Living Torah, Yahshua ha-Meshiach!!

Questions to Ponder

Kehilat (Ecclesiastes) 3:16-17--”Moreover I saw under the sun, in the place of justice, that wickedness was there; and in the place of righteousness, that wickedness was there. I said in my heart, ‘Elohim will judge the righteous and the wicked; for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.’”

Have you ever found yourself questioning YeHoVaH? Maybe, that’s the wrong way to ask; how about … Have you ever found yourself questioning why the world is the way the world is if YeHoVaH is supposed to be in control as He says He is? How can there be so much suffering in all the world, even for Believers who walk in obedience to Adonai? And, how should we, Believers, react to the suffering that we go through ourselves as well as what we see others suffer, sometimes, most of the time needlessly?

In the Kehilat passage of Scripture- above -Shelomoh ha-Melech (King Solomon) pondered something that had most likely been pondered on since the beginning of time, [quite literally]. And, folks, I think we can all agree that thinking about wickedness, wicked ways, sinning, disobedience, consequences, and punishment are not things we really want to think about; but, they must be thought about and they must be talked about and they must be faced nonetheless. In Elohim’s infinite wisdom, He has allowed us the abilities and capabilities to examine our behaviors in such a way. And, in our own finite minds, we have two very specific comforts from Elohim.

The first is that Elohim will judge and His judgment will come in His perfect time. And, in this judgment, no one will be exempt … not those who believe and are saved and not those who still walk in lawlessness (e.g.-wickedness and sin). There is no time in which we must ever forget that we will be judged by Elohim.

Romans 3:23--”For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of Elohim.”

The other note we need to know is that, as humans, we tend to think of Elohim’s judgment as unfair. But, when we remember to look at the bigger picture- and this bigger picture has been mentioned several times as of late -we can see Elohim’s right and fair judgment being prepared even now. Let me repeat this in a different way … We do not walk anyone else’s journey of life for them so we do not know nor are we aware what they have experienced, are now experiencing, or will be experiencing in the future, and, therefore, we have no way of knowing what Elohim has for them to experience at a later specified time … ipso facto, other people are none of our business. Elohim will take care of things that He needs to care of when He needs to take care of them.

Ephesians 2:1-3--”You were made alive when you were dead in transgressions and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience; among whom we also all once lived in the lusts of the flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.”

Now, here, we enter a kind of double-edged sword, because it is the duty of every Believer to not call other people on their lawlessness but to expose lawlessness and warn people of a coming consequence for continued disobedience as well as the reward for walking in obedience.

Conclusion

So, yes, speak of Elohim being the YAH of love- Yochanan-Aleph (1 John) 4:8--”He who doesn’t know love doesn’t know YeHoVaH, for YeHoVaH is love.” -but, beware, this is only half the sentence. Yes, He is the YAH of love; but, He is also the One Who must judge us when it is time for Him to do so- Kehilat 12:14--”For Elohim will bring every work into judgment, with every hidden thing, whether it is good, or whether it is evil.”

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 30:19--”I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your descendants.”
