Build Your Spiritual Wall

10 His watchmen are blind; they are all without knowledge; they are all silent dogs; they cannot bark, dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber. 11 The dogs have a mighty appetite; they never have enough. But they are shepherds who have no understanding; they have all turned to their own way, each to his own gain, one and all.~ Isaiah 56:10-11

Throughout the Old Testament, God reproves His watchmen, the ones He has placed upon the wall, to watch and sound the alarm at any and all approaching danger. The idea comes from the ancient world when a wall surrounding a city protected its inhabitants from bands of marauders, invading armies, and any such perceived danger.

Towers were built into the wall, and watchmen patrolled the top of the wall and were also stationed inside the towers to see far distances so that they could give a warning far enough in advance so that the people and the resting, or sleeping, army could prepare to defend their city.

Today, God is still trying to get the attention of His watchmen. There is still a Biblical mandate for watchmen to be stationed upon the walls to watch and sound the alarm of any and all approaching danger.

We, Christians, are called to be watchmen. Watchmen for our community, families, friends. We aren’t to just stand by and watch evil rule our world; we’re to sound the alarm. We’re to pray and fast about the current world we’re living in, building a spiritual wall around our homes, families, businesses, etc.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Build Your Spiritual Wall.
