2020 – SUNDAY 09 AUGUST
I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day or night: you that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence,
And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?
PERSISTENT FAITH ACCEPTS BEING A WATCHMAN
People of faith pray a lot.
They accept their role as being watchmen on the walls of the city. Their voice in prayer is heard above the multitude of city sounds.
PERSISTENT FAITH DOES NOT STAY SILENT
Watchmen cannot stay silent. They must beseech God for His wonderful promises toward His people.
PERSISTENT FAITH REMINDS THE LORD OF HIS PROMISES
Watchmen are those who remind God continually of His promises.
They ignore the circumstances around them- and fixate upon God and His promises for His people.
They are persistent to the point of being troublesome – continually coming before the Lord – to remind Him of His righteous ways.
PERSISTENT FAITH EXPECTS A SPEEDY ANSWER
God springs forth suddenly to avenge the righteous.
Watchmen on the walls expect God to appear in power at any time – and refuse to accept anything less.
They continue to pester God until He arises on their behalf.
WILL JESUS FIND PERSISTENT FAITH ON EARTH – WHEN HE RETURNS?
