We received an email from a reader and we have decided to post the question as other people may have a similar question or concern.
“We are going into captivity! We are not to fight it as Zedekiah did. Just curious, what are you suggesting we are to do with this information during this point in time?”
This question was with respect to an article we posted titled, “Welcome Aboard, But First US Marshals Will Scan Your Retina”.
The reader is correct, we are going into captivity and we have said this before as well. That does not mean we give up and let wickedness prevail.
We are to stand against evil and lift our Father’s Word, His Banner of Truth for everyone to see and hear. We are to point out the erosion of our rights and educate the people so they will know and understand what is transpiring in our world. If we fail to do this and this world marches on for another 50-100 years, what kind of world will we give our children? One saturated in corruption and evil, one far worse than it already is and it will be our fault as we stayed silent, “because the end is near”. Never let that be a reason to stay silent, never let the idea that we live in the end times silence your voice or you only allow the enemy to gain ground.
I am certain most of our readers, like us, believe we live in the end times and I think there are many, many signs around us that document that. Just the fact how dark and morally obscure the world is becoming indicates if it goes on this way much longer there will not be any truth left in the world. That in of itself should document that we all need to do our part, when and if we are able to do so. What exactly are we to do then?
We are to be watchmen. That does not mean we watch the events of our world and stay silent or sit idle. It means we take action. Turn your Bible with me to,
1 “Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,”
2 “Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:”
Whose Word? The Lord’s, our Father’s. Let us continue.
3 “If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;”
What does the watchman do, watch the events of our world and stay silent? No. He is to watch and blow the trumpet in order to warn the people of the dangers coming upon us. That means to take action, not sit idle.
4 “Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.”
5 “He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.”
If the watchman has kept a good watch and sounded the trumpet, meaning to take action by warning the people and they are swept away it is their own fault as they were warned.
6 “But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”
However, if the watchman see’s what is transpiring and fails to warn the people, God will surely pay that watchmen his due reward and it will not be a good one.
In verses 7-10 we are told, we need to warn the wicked of their ways of sin and help them turn aside from it. If we do not do that, their blood will be upon us as we knew better, but they did not. Meaning, we will have to answer for our in-action.
So what do you do with the information we presented to you? Read and understand it. Understand it is a violation of your Fourth Amendment right. Inform law enforcement agents this is a violation of your rights if you find yourself in similar circumstances. Inform your family and friends and help to educate them. The people have lost their way not only from a Biblical perspective, but from a civil perspective as well. It is all of our jobs to do our part, to reach those around us. To educate those who are willing to listen.
