Watchmen, Speak Up

Every man of God responsible for sharing with God’s people God’s holy Word has a grave duty. This is not to be taken lightly! That is why we study hard, pray diligently, and with fear and trembling attempt the task of preaching, teaching, and sharing.
Ezekiel 33:1-20 ups the ante and heightens this tension. Weigh with reverent minds the admonitions of the Scriptures. Mercy! This warning is extremely specific. “When I bring the sword against a land…and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not take warning and the sword comes and takes his life, his blood will be on his own head…But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.” (This and all Bible quotes from Concordia Self-Study Bible, NIV, CPH, 1986.)
Every man of God I believe should know the Ten Commandments. I also believe that every man of God is responsible for knowing the context of those commandments in our land, time, and culture. Exodus 21:22, 23, makes it abundantly clear, everyone who supports killing babies is justly condemning themselves. Galatians 5:19-21, KJV, further clarifies who receives the Kingdom of God. Those who support abortion by voting for baby killers are responsible for abortion. Those responsible for murder are murderers. Therefore, all voting to kill babies shall not receive the kingdom of God—shall not go to heaven. Mt.7:23.
Not to be confused, salvation is by grace through faith. This salvation is by grace alone and by faith alone. However, this saving faith is never alone. This saving faith is always accompanied by fruit meet for repentance. Killing babies is never a fruit of the Holy Spirit. The sword of the Lord is coming on this nation because of abortion. May we stop sinning. May we understand this & repent! Then may we protect the babies! May we pray, donate time & money, vote & speak up for these little ones, defenseless & innocent, cute & cuddly, beautiful creations of God!
