Watchman Daily Devotional:Sometimes It Appears Like the Lord Is Mercifully Sparing Us From the Repercussions of Our Unbelief. It Could Even Appear That Our Wickedness Is Helping Us. Be Warned Its Not

Genesis 12:13 13 Say you are my sister, that it may go well with me because of you, and that my life may be spared for your sake. Abram (whose name will later become Abraham) had followed the voice of the divine, departed from his homeland and community, and journeyed into Canaan as directed. At that moment, God’s presence revealed itself to him and made a covenant to grant the land to his future generations. During a time of scarcity, Abram traveled to Egypt in search of food. He was aware of the Egyptians’ admiration for beauty and feared for his life and his wife’s safety. He devised a plan to protect himself from the danger by having his wife claim she was his sister. It was what some might consider a harmless untruth. She was, after all, his half-sister…

Watchman’s Daily Devotional: The Journey Is Full of Trials. Those Trials Cause Grief, but They Also Accomplish a Purpose. They Prove Our Faith, Like Precious Metal Is Purified by Fire. They Burn out the Impurities of Our Worldly Ideas and Misguided Doctrines

1 Peter 1:6-8 6In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7These have come so that your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, Peter is discussing the paradox of the Christian life. We have a promising future awaiting us. The strength of the divine is sustaining us until we reach our destination. He mentions that this leads to great rejoicing. If you’re not filled with joy, you may not have fully…

Once You Understand the Significant Tasks That Are Meant for You, You Will Feel Motivated To Be Disciplined in How You Prepare for Them

1 Peter 1:13-16 13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” Thanks to the God plan of salvation through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, get ready to take action!

Watchman Daily Devotional: Everything We Have Is a Gift From the Most High God. All We Accomplish Is Because of Him. All the Good We Do Is Because He Made It Possible. In Everything Good That We Do, the Honor Should Go to God Alone

Genesis 14:22-23 Abram told the king of Sodom that he had made a promise to God Most High not to accept anything from him, to prevent any accusations of being benefited by the king. A group of foreign rulers conquered and looted the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot and his family were taken captive. Abram’s men and his allies chased down and defeated the enemy in a battle under the cover of darkness. All the treasures seized from the city were retrieved, along with the captives, including Lot and his family. Upon Abram’s return, the king of Sodom asked for the people but permitted Abram to retain the goods. Abram refused the gifts as he had made a commitment not to accept anything to avoid any accusations of being enriched by Sodom. Abram received the Lord’s blessing. Abram was…

Watchman Daily Devotional: God Has Shown Us Over and Over That He Is Faithful, One Little Test Comes Along and We Ask if He Is Really With Us or Not

King James Version And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not? Once more, the people became upset due to the lack of water. Once more, Moses was held responsible. They had not absorbed the final teaching from the miracle of daily provision. The provider of our needs is the Lord. This time, a new element was added to the situation. They inquired about the presence of the God among them. They witnessed and encountered the remarkable events that occurred in Egypt – from crossing the sea to witnessing water changing, experiencing fear, and receiving bread in the wilderness. After witnessing the glory of the LORD in the guiding cloud, they now question whether God…

Watchman’s Daily Devotional: Pray at All Times (Luke 18:1). Paul Commands Us to “Pray Without Ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17).

In Philippians 1:9–11, it is evident that this section is a prayer. Usually, Paul’s prayers showed his desire for his readers to grow spiritually. It is essential to rely on prayer for spiritual growth, as it connects Us to the power of the Holy Spirit. Watchman: Prayer is incredibly important, as Jesus directed His followers to pray constantly (Luke 18:1). Paul instructs us to maintain a constant attitude of prayer (1 Thess. 5:17). Peter emphasized the importance of maintaining a clear mind and focused attitude when praying (1 Pet. 4:7). Many other commands are given in scripture to pray, but what truly reflects your faith is your inner drive to pray, not just following commands. As a believer, you live in a spiritual realm where prayer is as essential as breathing in the physical realm. Similar to how atmospheric pressure…

Watchman’s Daily Devotional: Peter and Jude Clearly Laid Out the Marks of False Teachers: Which Are Sensuality, Greed, and Pride (Jude 10,1137; 2 Peter 2:1438). They Are the Same Today

To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.’ Revelation 2:17b The conqueror or overcomer, the meanings are the same, is the one who will hear and obey what the Spirit says. We yield to the conviction of the Holy Spirit and change our ways. We persist in what has been commended. When we refuse to hear, it is rebellion against our Creator and Sustainer. That is to declare our self to be Lord. It is the pride that caused Lucifer to fall (Isaiah 14:1340). It ensures that God will resist you, for He resists the proud and gives grace to the humble (James 4:641). “Where is the line that…

Watchman: Daily Devotional, 19. The Beast and the False Prophet (Rev 13:1-18)

The general character of the Tribulation is clearly portrayed in this chapter. It is a time of slavery, blasphemy, apostasy, and gross satanic activity. Let us thank God that we have the blessed hope of Our Lord and Savoir. But let us not, as we contemplate on all this, forget our responsibility to be involved in the propagation of the gospel of Christ, the only hope for the world. The Beast Out of the Sea (13:1-10) As one studies this section, it is helpful to keep in mind that this prophecy is closely tied to the prophecies of Daniel (cf. Daniel 2:42, 44; 7:7, 8, 20; 8:25; 11:36; 9:27). Also remember that this is still a parenthetical section describing one of the key forces, kingdoms, and personages of the Tribulation. In his first advent, the Lord Jesus said: He who believes…

Watchman: Daily Devotional, Mayhem: End-Time Demonic Activities, Watchman: “A Large Scale False Flag Cyber-Attack Is Now Imminent.” Find Solace in Christ

Satan’s Synagogue atop the New World Order The evil Empire of Secret Societies’ relentless and tragic climb to supremacy has led mankind to the point in its history when practically every person in the highest positions is a member of Secret Societies. There are only two historical perspectives: one in which everything happens by coincidence and the other in which everything happens on purpose. The first is held by the ignorant, dumb, and liars, whereas the second is held by the smart. History is constructed on purpose, not by happenstance. Two public personalities separated by time realized this. “Nothing happens by chance in politics,” said Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1955), the 32nd President of the United States. If anything happens, you can bet it was designed that way.” “The world is run by people who are extremely different from those who…

Watchman: Daily Devotional, They Had Lost Their Teachable Attitude and Open Mind. They Believed They Had Complete Knowledge of the Truth and Would Not Accept Anything That Did Not Fit the Hard Container of Their Narrow Thinking

Matthew 9:15-17 (NIV) 15 Jesus answered, “How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast. 16” No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. 17 Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved. John’s disciples questioned why they and the Pharisees fasted but not Jesus’ disciples. Jesus responded with a wedding analogy. When there is a wedding, visitors are required to participate in a feast. Jesus has arrived to take the church…
