Watchmen Don’t Remain Silent!

What good is a watchman who won’t speak out?
-Ezk 33:6

Isaiah 56:9-12
Come, all you beasts of the field,
… come and devour, all you beasts of the forest!
Israel’s watchmen are blind,
… they all lack knowledge;
… they are all mute dogs,
… they cannot bark;
… they lie around and dream,
… they love to sleep.
They are dogs with mighty appetites;
… they never have enough.
… They are shepherds who lack understanding;
… they all turn to their own way,
… each seeks his own gain.
“Come,” each one cries, “let me get wine!
… Let us drink our fill of beer!
… And tomorrow will be like today,
… or even far better.”

Hosea 4:11
Harlotry and wine and new wine take away the heart and the mind and the spiritual understanding.
