Watching and Warning

“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: 18When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 19Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.

Ezekiel was a priest of Israel. God made him a watchman to warn the people, both wicked and righteous, and said to him 4“Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them”.  7But the house of Israel will not listen to you, because they will not listen to Me; for all the house of Israel are impudent and hard-hearted.

God always gives us warning that he will not allow evil to go unpunished. It is time to heed that warning, instead of following those who deceive us into thinking that God is so good that he will not punish sin. You have been warned.
