Luke 11:23 – He, who is not with Me, is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters. 

Which camp are you of? You can’t be part of God’s camp on Sunday and part of the world’s on Tuesday. Wherever you are, your choices, actions, thoughts, and motives shout your allegiance. Be loyal to King Jesus and live! 

Declaration: I’m of God’s camp. I’m loyal to the Lord in all I do and say. I will not sit on the fence because the devil owns the fence. I belong to Jesus!

The Watchman

It’s a big responsibility to be a dad – a tremendous responsibility – and responsibility is a really big thing in the Kingdom. And there’s a Kingdom word for responsibility all the way through scripture: watchfulness.

The Word of God says, “Be ye watchful.” My friend, this is a command and also a calling. If you are watchful as a daddy or a mama, you are known in Heaven as a “watchman.” So what happens when you step up and become a watchman for your family and friends? The Lord gives you a trumpet. 

“If a watchmen sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet so that the people are not warned, and then the sword comes and takes any of them, well, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood, I will require at the watchman’s hand.” – Ezekiel 33:6

As a watchman on the wall of your home, family, marriage, church and job, you’re responsible to blow that warning trumpet. You are not to be silent. Your voice is powerful as you speak Jesus and hope into bad situations and stand against Satan’s plan in a day where good is called evil.

The truth is, Adam was a gardener and a garden is a “guarded space.” He was no wimp. He was a bad motor scooter whose job was to keep bad things out of the garden and good things in. That is exactly what each of us daddies is supposed to be. A watchman on the wall, guarding all that God made you responsible for. 

“But Pastor Troy, Adam fell down on the job. He let that snake into the garden and it ruined everything for every generation throughout all time.”

Yes, he did, but you don’t have to do the same. Be responsible. Be the watchman. Guard your family, friends and finances. Blow that trumpet and watch King Jesus ride to the rescue.
