Monday’s Life In Him–Watchdogs

Happy Monday Everyone!
Who wants to join in “Monday's Life In Him”?
It’s easy…
Just grab this button below & post it somewhere either on your blog post or on your main page.
Write a post about HIM (Jesus)
Sometimes I just post a verse,
sometimes I share a short story
or sometimes I write a short study.
Either way… Let’s spread His Word and His Love!

Here is what I have for today:

Isaiah 56:10-11 

10His watchmen (leaders, preachers) are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

11Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

These blind watchmen were preachers, leaders. These watchmen were spiritually ignorant. Due to their ignorance, they led people down the wrong path (spiritually). Instead of acting like faithful watchdogs who are supposed to give warning of the danger (false doctrine) by barking, they don’t give any warning at all. These watchmen (or preachers) were the reason Israel lost her way. Israel forfeited all the great promises because of these “dumb dogs” who did not preach the truth or warn of false doctrine. They were lazy and wasted their lives sleeping. These watchmen (or preachers) were also greedy.

Now fast forward to today.

I don’t mean to be a “Debby-Downer”, but it is my opinion that 95% of all preachers are just like these blind watchmen. They are greedy. They want your money bad enough to preach a watered down version of the truth… which becomes the opposite of truth. It it’s not 100% the gospel of Christ – then it is “another Jesus”.

We need to study. We need to know the whole truth. We need to know when someone is watering down the gospel - changing it.

2 Timothy 2:15

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

And we need to warn! Warn others when there is one who is leading other astray.

If you go to a restaurant and get food poisoning… you warn everyone you know,

“Don’t go to that burger joint on Main Street!!!! You will get SICK!!!”

This is how we should treat the gospel! Warn others of the one’s who are leading people down the wrong path. This is love.

So many of the mega churches today are “preaching” easy going, uplifting messages that makes everyone feel all warm & fuzzy inside. Encouraging and uplifting is wonderful. But sometimes the message of God isn’t all warm and fuzzy. Sin is something that is not taught on today. Sin separates us from God. We need to be warned of sin, and set on the right path. But there are not many preachers today warning of sin. Most ministers of today are only teaching the warm fuzzy part of Jesus…. and leaving out the rest.


Know the truth. The whole truth.


Now it’s YOUR turn.
