“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me” (Ezekiel 3:17).
You call each watchman to their post
To watch and warn and to rebuff
The perils of attacking hosts
That would destroy, make living tough.
You call each sentry, closely view
And listen to the words you voice,
You speak assurance, words so true
That I must heed, there make my choice.
Open my eyes to clearly see
And hear your word just there to be
A watcher of your citadel
And shout with joy, all here is well.
Sin does not leap upon us fully armed. It steals in through a look, a swift, silent suggestion or imagination, but love and loyalty to Jesus will make you watchful and swift to rise up and cast out the subtle enemy. Do this and you shall live, and live victoriously.
