๐Ÿ‘‘ A Watchman For Israel And The Apostle Of Grace

โ€œโ€ฆI have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at My mouth, and warn them from Meโ€ (Ezek. 33:7).

The Prophet Ezekiel was appointed by God as a โ€œwatchmanโ€ over the house of Israel. He was held responsible to warn the wicked from their way, for while God must deal justly with sin, He had declared: โ€œI have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and liveโ€ (Ezek. 33:11).

If Ezekiel failed to warn the wicked they would die in their sins, but their blood would be required at his hand. If he faithfully warned them, however, and they refused to heed the warning, they would die in their sins, but he would be absolved of all responsibility (See Ezek. 33:8,9).

Would some Christian reader remind us that we are living under another dispensation and that our message is one of grace? True enough, but this does not diminish, it increases our responsibility toward the lost.

โ€œFor if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?โ€ (I Cor.14:8).

If we believers carelessly allow the lost to go to Christless graves, are we not morally responsible for their doom? Will we not be held accountable at the Judgment Seat of Christ? (See II Corinthians 5:10,11). This is why we find Paul reminding the Ephesian elders that he had not ceased to โ€œwarnโ€ men โ€œnight and day with tearsโ€ (Acts 20:31).

As the apostle looked back over his ministry among the Ephesians he could say: โ€œI take you to record this day that I am pure from the blood of all menโ€ (Acts 20:26). And this had been so of his ministry in general. Indeed, it was now his desire that whatever the cost, he โ€œmight finish his course with joy, and the ministry which he had received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of Godโ€ (Acts 20:24).

May Ezekiel, and the Apostle Paul, that great warrior for the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, be memorials to us โ€” of our great responsibility toward the lost! source
