*Cue Preacher Voice* Please open your bibles and turn with me to Ezekiel 33:1-5. Today I have a Marvelous message that was sent to me last night around 2:00 am. It’s short, sweet, and stirring…Enjoy!
The scripture begins by saying:
“Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people,”-Ezekiel 33: 1-3
The job of the watchman within this scripture is to watch over the city. The watchman is also in charge of warning the city when danger approaches by blowing a trumpet. To apply this to current day think of the watchman as your intuition. Now ask yourself has your intuition been blowing it’s trumpet lately!? Is there anything that has happened recently that caught your attention and made you think!? If so, hold that thought as we continue reading.
The scripture goes on to say:
“then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life.”- Ezekiel 33:4-5
Now un pause that thought and revisit the warning sign ringing in your spirit. That is what your watchman sounding the trumpet sounds like. By reading the scripture we can see just how important it is to respond to our warnings. They are here to protect us and to keep us on path. When we ignore them whatever comes of it is our fault. However, we don’t treat it that way. We claim God is silent or that he is trying to ruin our lives when in reality you brought it upon yourself. God made the attempt to save you when he made your intuition sound it’s trumpet, it was your choice to ignore it.
It’s time we get serious and trust the trumpet. It may not be what we want to hear when we are on the brink of falling in love or buying a new pair of shoes. However, it could be the difference between heart ache and bankruptcy. No more ignoring the signs and blaming God for not conforming to your alternative plan. Trust the trumpet, I promise after a while you will love the sound of it.
