PARABLE OF THE RELUCTANT WATCHMAN

David Rhoades
01-04-2005

There was a businessman who discovered evil taking over his church. he was surprised to find out that it was not only taking over his church, but was taking over churches all over the world.

He tracked the sources back to an evil group that has long planned a "One World Government". Developing the "One World Church" using ecumenism was just one arm of the octopus.

He found that this group, incrementally over the past 100 years, had slowly taken over not only the churches, but the schools, the government and the financial institutions.

To accomplish this they had actually changed history, as well as had changed the Bible to support their goals.

The businessman was horrified. He looked around to see if others saw this evil and were trying to warn their fellow man. He saw no one.

He prayed to the Lord God and said, "Dear Lord; I looked and saw no one to do this. I'm so ill equipped. I have never studied to be your servant. Surely there must be someone better prepared?"

The businessman became the "reluctant watchman".

He started trying to warn others.

And not many would listen.

Soon he had visitors that wore hoods to protect their identity. Some were his friends, but others were his enemies. Neither wanted their identity known.

His friends asked him why he was doing this?

His enemies used threats and accusations to scare him.

The "reluctant watchman" prayed again. He said, "Dear Lord, I need help! I'm not trained and studied in your word, I've been a sinner, and a lazy man. Please send me your best preachers and elders to help me warn others."

The next day a man visited the "reluctant watchman" and said, "I'm an unemployed carpenter, I love the Lord, and I'm here to help."

Then, the next day came an old man that wore his years, and he said, "I'm a retired engineer, a student in ancient biblical history, and I have read most of the ancient manuscripts, including the Koran many times. I love the Lord and I'm here to help."

Then came a medical industry executive, and another businessman, a retired doctor, and then more came. They all could be identified because they didn't wear hoods, and by their admission of loving the Lord God.

And so the "reluctant watchman" along with his help from God, set out to work.

The moral of this story is; Your prayers may not always bring you what you ask for. You may get exactly what you need.

There is a 40 year old organization full of "reluctant watchmen" that probably has a chapter near you.
