Ezekiel 33:2-7 (KJV) Be A Watchman

Ezekiel 33:2-7 (KJV)
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
The watchman was taken among the people to care for and warn the people. The judgment was from God. Whatever calamity they faced would be righteous and just. But the watchman isn’t called to judge the people. He is called to watch and to warn them.
God calls every Christian to be a watchman.
Every soul we speak to deserves whatever judgment God brings upon them but it is not our job to choose who should and shouldn’t be warned. We know that most people will reject our warning. That is up to them to do if they choose. Our place is to warn them. Our place is to give them opportunity to be saved. What they do with that opportunity is between them and God.
We must simply not be guilty of judging them unworthy of hearing the warning.
