Watchman, What of the Night Primary Text: Is. 21:11; 2 Thes. 2:1-10; 13-17 Additional scripture: 1 John 4:3; 1 Peter 5:8

In Isaiah 21, in the prophecy, the prophet Isaiah is here referred to as the watchman. He is represented as being in the midst of the calamities that had come upon Judea, and as having his station in desolate Jerusalem, and looking for the signs of returning day. ‘How stands the night? What is the prospect? What have you to announce respecting the night? How much of it is passed? And what is the prospect of the dawn?’ ‘Night’ here is the emblem of calamity, affliction, and oppression, as it often is in the Scriptures and it refers here probably to the calamities which had come upon Judea. The application to today is that we (the church) are living in “perilous times” as the scriptures clearly indicate. We are witnessing the rise of the church of the antichrist and the world is being prepared for his (Antichrist) ascension into power, worship, and taking his mark. What is the true watchman, the Holy Spirit saying to the church today? That is the context of the message–wake up, stand fast, hold to the traditions you have been taught.
