Gatekeepers! Watchmen! You are to speak out (The Lord has called you out to be Bold today)

Gatekeepers have three primary roles

  1. To protect the Lord’s house.  This means they defend the gospel, the truth of the Word and Protect the holiness of God’s house. Their hearts are on fire with the Fear of the Lord. They want the Lord’s house to be a house of Prayer and they are not content until they see the Lord’s will come to place. The gatekeeper protects the House. They know the scriptures well and are full of understanding. They are bold to speak out against the sins of the church- even if it means they will be mocked, hated or even kicked out of the church. They stay close to the House of the Lord
  2. They keep the Lord’s people on the right path, keeping them from drifting from the Lord. As a staff or sheepdog would keep the sheep together from straying, so the role of gatekeeper is the same. He is responsible to oversee the people, gently guide the drifter back and keep those on the threshold of evil paths from taking another step in the wrong direction. They are bold and not afraid to tell the truth of God;s word, knowing full well they are saving many from the fires of eternal hell.They are prayer warriors and intercessors for the people
  3. They keep watch for the master’s return; ready to usher in the King of Glory


Who is a gatekeeper?

According to the Old Testament, a gatekeeper was a Levite. Gatekeepers where also watchmen on the walls.They were ministering priests from the tribe of Levi. Gatekeepers were trusted officials and high priests in the servant role of protecting the Lord’s house. They were stationed at all 4 gates (N,S, E, W). They also appointed and taught others around them to guard the gate as well. Their hearts were fully committed to the Lords will. Today’s gatekeepers hope and pray for revival and eagerly await the Lord’s return. They are always prepared and continually remind others to be ready. Gatekeepers made sure that nothing unholy entered into God’s house and nothing was allowed to leave unless it had approval. They were in charge of the Temple items and treasuries of the House of the Lord.

RUNNING AWAY FROM THIS IS NOT AN OPTION (Jonah didn’t win) You are commanded to speak out and warn them

 Pay attention : (Ez) The Lord’s Message came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people. Tell them, ‘If I bring war on this land and the people take one of their citizens and make him their watchman, and if the watchman sees war coming and blows the trumpet, warning the people, then if anyone hears the sound of the trumpet and ignores it and war comes and takes him off, it’s his own fault. He heard the alarm, he ignored it—it’s his own fault. If he had listened, he would have saved his life.
6
“‘But if the watchman sees war coming and doesn’t blow the trumpet, warning the people, and war comes and takes anyone off, I’ll hold the watchman responsible for the bloodshed of any unwarned sinner.
“You, son of man, are the watchman. I’ve made you a watchman for Israel. The minute you hear a message from me, warn them. If I say to the wicked, ‘Wicked man, wicked woman, you’re on the fast track to death!’ and you don’t speak up and warn the wicked to change their ways, the wicked will die unwarned in their sins and I’ll hold you responsible for their bloodshed. But if you warn the wicked to change their ways and they don’t do it, they’ll die in their sins well-warned and at least you will have saved your own life. 
“Son of man, I’ve made you a watchman for the family of Israel. Whenever you hear me say something, warn them for me. If I say to the wicked, ‘You are going to die,’ and you don’t sound the alarm warning them that it’s a matter of life or death, they will die and it will be your fault. I’ll hold you responsible. But if you warn the wicked and they keep right on sinning anyway, they’ll most certainly die for their sin, but you won’t die. You’ll have saved your life.
 “And if the righteous turn back from living righteously and take up with evil when I step in and put them in a hard place, they’ll die. If you haven’t warned them, they’ll die because of their sins, and none of the right things they’ve done will count for anything—and I’ll hold you responsible. But if you warn these righteous people not to sin and they listen to you, they’ll live because they took the warning—and again, you’ll have saved your life.”

“Gatekeepers: gather the drifters and show them the right way”

Gatekeepers role of protecting the people :  The gatekeepers of these last days have been commissioned to protect the sheep. You are to devote yourselves to holiness and to protect the sheep from drifting away.

   I saw a great crowd of people and no one was going the right way. Great crowds were everywhere. Not one person was facing the same way as another. Everyone was going and looking in different directions, scattering themselves. They weren’t concerned with where they were headed and kept walking in whatever direction they turned without any consideration. There was a lot of noise, and as I looked around I heard deep within my heart and all around me “Gatekeepers for the drifting”.

 This is not a topic I would have written about nor have I ever considered the term gatekeeper of the drifters. However when I did research I found it quite interesting. If you are reading this,  it may be your time to stand up and speak in the righteousness of the Lord- not for our own self-righteousness, but for the Honor of the Lord and for the salvation of those who are about to perish. We can no longer fear what man thinks, what he may say, do, or even notice their countenance – Fear God and what lies ahead for all of us. Take your stand and don’t turn to look around to the right or left, who cares what people think- ask yourself this “What does the Lord say?”.  Will he call you “Good and faithful servant” or an “evil coward”. Yikes, I know, that sounds harsh, but that’s what the scripture says. Don’t we all wish we could be make everyone happy with our words, but that is not our job. Our duty is to speak the truth in Love, snatching up those about to perish. Amen? Amen.

Biblical examples of why some drift or fall away

  1. envy
  2. false teachings
  3. temptation
  4. wickedness
  5. laziness
  6. fear, lack of faith, no fear of the Lord
  7. love of money
  8. sitting and standing with the wrong crowd (Ps 1)
  9. unbelief

How can I help my fallen brother?

    • Remind them that we must all repent of our sins  Revelation 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
    • Teach them to listen carefully and cling tightly to the Good News : But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News. The Good News has been preached all over the world, and I, Paul, have been appointed as God’s servant to proclaim it.  So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it.
    • Warn them of false teachings and doctrines: 2 Thessalonians 2:3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
    • Tell them they have to choose. Do you belong to the World or to the Lord. Warn them of the dangers of being lukewarm. Luke 8:13They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
    • Continue to minister to them: Colossians 1:23If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
    • Praying always for believers everywhere, without ceasing

TELL THE PEOPLE: Tell them, ‘As sure as I am the living God, I take no pleasure from the death of the wicked. I want the wicked to change their ways and live. Turn your life around! Reverse your evil ways! Why die, Israel?’
TELL THE PEOPLE: There’s more, son of man. Tell your people, ‘A good person’s good life won’t save him when he decides to rebel, and a bad person’s bad life won’t prevent him from repenting of his rebellion. A good person who sins can’t expect to live when he chooses to sin. It’s true that I tell good people, “Live! Be alive!” But if they trust in their good deeds and turn to evil, that good life won’t amount to a hill of beans. They’ll die for their evil life.

TELL THE PEOPLE : On the other hand, if I tell a wicked person, “You’ll die for your wicked life,” and he repents of his sin and starts living a righteous and just life—being generous to the down-and-out, restoring what he had stolen, cultivating life-nourishing ways that don’t hurt others—he’ll live. He won’t die. None of his sins will be kept on the books. He’s doing what’s right, living a good life. He’ll live.

‘Your people say, “The Master’s way isn’t fair.” But it’s the way they’re living that isn’t fair. When good people turn back from living good lives and plunge into sin, they’ll die for it. And when a wicked person turns away from his wicked life and starts living a just and righteous life, he’ll come alive.

Do you ask yourself- Who am I?
He hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Revelation 5:10 1 Peter 2:9 Revelation 1:6 1 Peter 2:5


A gatekeeper protects the house of the Lord from corruption and worldly ideas. Stand true to the Word of God and do not waver. Protect the people from following lies, false ideas and wrong doctrine. Protect and cling tightly to the Word of God, protecting the Lord’s house and His Ways. You must keep the people from stumbling off the narrow path. Keep the Lord’s sheep safe until He comes back again, always staying ready and looking out for your master to return.  He has commanded us to watch for His return.

SCRIPTURE TO THINK ABOUT: (proof to back up what I’ve written above)

Nehemiah 7:3 I said to them, “Do not leave the gates open during the hottest part of the day. And even while the gatekeepers are on duty, have them shut and bar the doors.

Nehemiah 10:39 The people and the Levites must bring these offerings of grain, new wine, and olive oil to the storerooms and place them in the sacred containers near the ministering priests, the gatekeepers, and the singers. “We promise together not to neglect theTemple of our God.”

John 10:3The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

Hebrews 4:11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

      Do you have something to say? Do you know something is wrong and you haven’t sounded the alarm? Be encouraged today. Spend time with the Lord and pray about it. Ask the Lord to search your heart and make sure that pride/ haughtiness hasn’t slipped in. Meditate on Ps 131 and speak boldly for the Lord – don’t go in seeking great things for yourself, but for the glory of the Lord. Keep your focus.
        Don’t think this is for you? If you have children- you are the watchmen over them and their hearts. Do you know someone who has drifted from the faith? Then pray for them and speak to them in love warning everyone everyday.

       Peace and Shalom. May God have mercy on us.

    This is a good word. It is the heart of our Lord as well. He wants us to sound the alarm and save the lost, the drifting and the shiftless from certain destruction.

    Proverbs 24:11-12 If thou forbear to deliver [them that are] drawn unto death, and [those that are] ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider [it]? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth [not] he know [it]? and shall [not] he render to [every] man according to his works?

      The Watchman till Jesus Comes,
      I am not a Prophet, I am not a Pastor, I am not a Bible teacher, but I am called by the Lord in these end days to be a Watchman and to encourage believers to stay focused on God’s Promises, and be faithful to Him, with patient, Watching and groaning Romans 8;18-25, for His soon arrival. We do not know the day nor the hour only the Father does,
      but we will know the season and generation
      It has been 2014 years since Jesus Died on the Cross and Rose again and ascended into Heaven with a Promise, To return soon. For all the generations since then it has been 2000 years. Time had to move that far in order for Him to accomplish what He is doing with Israel God had scattered the Jews. But, There was a prophecy that had to be fulfilled which is found in Isaiah that He would gather them together Isaiah 66;7-8 and actually happened May 14, 1948 when Israel became a nation in one day. There is another Prophecy that indicates that Jesus would return, found in Matthew 24; 32-35 special interest of v34 “ This Generation shall not pass away until all these things are fulfilled “ It is well known that scripture interprets scripture in Psalm 90; 10 scripture says “ The days of our years are 3 score and 10” =70years and when God sent the Jews to Babylon as punishment for disobedience, and to die off that generation it was for 70 years. in May 14 2014 Israel celebrated 66 years since that day in 1948. God has promised to take care of His people, The Jews first and then His Gentile Church, which were grafted in. In Matthew 24;22 the scriptures say Except those days should be shortened there should be no flesh be saved; but for the elects sake those days shall be shortened. In the Book of Luke that is the same event as what is revealed in Matthew 24 Luke 21; 28 scripture says And when you see these things begin to come to pass, then look up lift up your head your redemption draws nigh. In the Book of Job 9;1-8 it says 5 He it is that removes the mountains and they know not who overturns them in His anger. 6 Who shakes the earth out of its place, and the pillars of it tremble. Today we have heard that in 2004 Sumatra Earthquake and Tsunami and again in Chile 2010 Earthquake and Tsunami and then again in 2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami the earth moved off its axis. NASA reported this and they also said that the Chile Quake and Japan Quake the day was shortened. NASA acquired that knowledge by developing a method to understand if the earth came off it’s axis and if the day was shortened in the 1960 little to know it would happen soon. In Daniel 12;4 Scriptures say that man will go to and fro and knowledge will increase In Job 9;8 the latter part reveals that God in His anger treads upon the waves of the sea.
      But it does not stop there, because of all the things that have happened since. In Luke 21; 25 Scriptures says that “ and there shall be signs in the Sun and in the Moon and in the Stars and upon the Earth and distress of nations with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring” As an over all thought to me that God is preparing this earth for the end of the age Isaiah 13;13 Isaiah 24; 19-20
      Now as we unpack this verse and see it all remembering this is the beginning stage starting at year 2000 to 2014 so far. This should give hope to all those who have looked for His soon arrival, only to be disappointed, but lost the goal of ever watching
      Science makes claim to these events from the mindset of a reprobate mind that chooses not to retain the knowledge of God. They call it Global Warming and Climate Change and Polar Vortex
      These findings are from the scriptures which we welcome all that God reveals to us gladly
      Signs in the Sun; Solar flare at temperatures of 10,000 degrees flying off the Sun and burning the ozone layer , after leaving a black spot on the sun.
      Signs in the Moon The moon controls the weather for the earth, and since the earth came off it’s axis, the earth and the Moon are closer to each other at certain time a year January July12 August 9 and September 10 and these moons are called Supermoons.
      Signs in the Stars NASA reported just in July 2014 that 2 galaxies collided making many stars a sign of the beginning of a future event of collapse of the universe, in 2007 stars were seen on the hubble telescope leaving this galaxy
      Upon the Earth there has been many extreme events all over the globe, earthquakes, and tornadoes, sinkholes, ice caps melting, volcanoes, new volcanoes erupting, flooding, hail, extreme winters, freezing rain, sea life dying, meteorites hitting the earth, masses of birds falling out of the air, starfish dying, the crust of the earth is getting thinner, the earth is groaning trumpet like sounds coming from the earth.
      Distress of nations, with perplexity people are worried about this earth and the New World Order and the collapse of the financial markets. Masses are dying at these stressful global events
      The sea and the waves roaring Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Cyclones, Monsoons and Typhoons all of these are waves 2005 Katrina Hurricane worst storm ever 2013 Sandy Super storm December 2013 Philippines Typhoon wave was 35ft high traveling at 200 miles per hour July 2014 Philippines Neguri Typhoon, July 15 2014 Typhoon Glenda there have been 7 Typhoons this year all extreme

    Hi Lisa,

    This is great encouragement. I remember the word of the Lord when He said to me “Persist on your Ezequiel calling… and Habakkuk too.” Then just recently, again He said, “Shout it out loud.” Thus, I speak/write as I see and hear for the glory of His name.

    Blessings,

    Watchmen

  8. Tony says:

    Not for one who can’t stand rejection. I have been a watchman since the early 90’s when the Lord called me and the calling was confirmed by a well known prophet at that time. I have been ignored but also thanked. I have been made fun of but also acknowledged that my word was right on.

    • lisa says:

      That is amazing, and I understand the rejection. That is partly why I started to write my dreams and visions on this blog- not well accepted in the world around me.I want to reply to your last comment but my day got to chaotic.
      I will respond when I get a moment without noise :)

      • Tony says:

        What I was told was that if I couldn’t handle rejection then I had forget about operating in the prophetic. I know that watchmen are not around to give people warm and fuzzy feelings. But it would seem that this is all the church of Laodicea wants.

      • Devlin says:

        Hi Lisa, its good that you do write your dreams down. I am one of those who sometimes do laugh and am embarrassed for those who do put themselves out into the lime light, and others laugh and joke. Until I had a dream myself, someone spoke to me in my dream, and said, “You are the Gatekeeper”. It really had profound meaning to me.

    • murray says:

      Tony you know when Noah was building the ark it took him 120 years building a boat on an area where was no rain, they made fun of him sort of going to work with everyone who thinks you are stupid but you have to love, them think of them as a friend

  9. Marianne says:

    Good message. Most watchman want to hide behind the computer..It is good to preach to believers, but .we also need to get out on the streets and minister to those who don’t even know who God is.

    • lisa says:

      I hope your comment moves people to get out and speak out. This is true. We do need to reach out to the unbelievers and those out on the streets who don’t know God. Thank you for sharing this.
      I know sometimes speaking out God’s truth can lead to rejection within the church and among others, so I would encourage anyone to keep on. I have been lied about, rejected, falsely accused and laughed at – but as long as I know I have done as the Lord asks, I am at peace and He strengthens all of us.
      May God be glorified. God bless, Lisa

    Great reminders for all watchmen and gatekeepers. See Ezekiel’s mandate in my eBook, in chapter about Watchmen on the Wall, ‘Sounding the Shofar-Exhotations for the End Times’ on Side Bar.

  12. Thank you for this encouraging and inspiring word. As noted above, it’s easy to sit behind a computer screen as a nameless, faceless article. Our work here is important, but meanwhile, a lot of people around us are drifting away…or have never met our Jesus. We must be faithful to reach out to them in love.

    Why does the modern day church disobey Matthew 23 regarding kingdom behavior,hierarchy and titles

    • walkingalongancientpaths says:

      Hi Judy, I read through Mt 23 quickly, I probably need more specifics, I would like to know what verse you are referring to. The modern church
      seems to disobey to many things. I read your comment first thing this morning and I had tossed and turned all night the night before because
      my heart is so heavy with the wickedness I see in the churches and leaders. Thousands are following deceiving doctrine and the churches
      around me are filled with scandal. We must be in the last days, as the days of Noah, the days of Sodom – we must keep on in knowledge and understanding of the scripture. Keep speaking out the truth and never give up. Have a blessed Easter Weekend and thank you for stopping by.

  17. Haabiba says:

    This is very powerful, thorough and encouraging. I was recently called to be a gatekeeper. I feel it is a confirmation of many experiences in my life and things God has placed in my heart so when the prophet said it I was not surprised. I only wondered all that this calling really would require. Your blog provides the most information I’ve found so far. Thank you. I have a better understanding of what I need to do and how. Can you recommend any books on the subject of gatekeepers, discernment and spiritual warfare?

    • walkingalongancientpaths says:

      This is good news. The best book I can recommend is the Bible. Know your Maker, your Creator, your God. Fear Him and walk with Him. Be a disciple of Christ by abiding in His Word and let the Holy Spirit guide you and teach you everything you need to know. Be very careful of every word you hear, ever word you see and every word you read. Go in to all learning with a Berean attitude – searching the scriptures to make sure everything you hear is correct.
      I asked the Lord to explain discernment to me. There are many different aspects of learning discernment – it isnt just one thing. However, once I was shown how satan uses arrow like weapons that are wrong and blasphemous thoughts against truth and God’s word, like an arrow, they go into our mind. It’s important to keep your mind fixed (Phil 4:8) and be ready for attacks from satan. When you walk with Christ, the Holy Spirit will reveal things to you that you need to know or see. I would be very wary of anyone who taught a step by step method of these things. Walk with the Lord, ask for understanding and surely He will answer you’re prayer.
      I wrote this post because I had a vision of people going in different directions and not knowing where to go. I heard a voice say to me – gatekeepers for the drifting – that’s what prompted this study.
      One of my favorite books, that I feel is completely Godly based is Living Water by Brother Yun. You can open that book up to any page and hear wisdom.
      With that said, I do read a lot of books, I’m not recommending them, just sharing what I’m looking into right now – I am reading Ancient Paths by Corey Russel, I just finished Python by jentzen Franklin ( I liked that one), God’s Generals by Roberst Liardon
      There are many books on spiritual warfare, just be careful and be ready when you begin to read and study them.

      I just finished a book I thought you might find interesting: Redemption of an African Warlord by Joshua Blahyi – He tells his life story and reveals the plans, schemes and tactics of the enemy. I started the book yesterday and finished it today.
      I thought it was a really good book.

    Thank you for this, it’s beautiful. I knew I was made this way for a specific purpose, and the term Gatekeeper every now and then would come to my heart. This teaching has brought me confirmation and clarity. The LORD’s Blessings to you.

      Hi Cynthia,
      This is good news! Be always prayerful in all things, be ready for persecution – even among believers. Always stand true on God’s word and don’t
      let words of others knock you down. Look up- he is your God and your Redeemer!
      God bless,
      Lisa

    God called me to be a watchman years ago. Just until recently, I been studying more about it. God has showing me the authority that he has given the watchman. Truly I am taking it not lightly. It is a great responsibility. He told me to pray for our government and the United Nations due to the changing coming. Whether it is new laws or what ,but we need to pray as we never have before. Plus want to say I never knew there was more out there. I knew I was not a lone, felt like it. To thank you for letting t_here is more and iI am not a lone. God’s blessings to you all Jannelle
