The Watchers of God
“For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin” – (Job ).
“I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and a holy one came down from heaven” – (Dan.4:13).
“Neither in there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do” – (Heb.4:13).
“And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reigns and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works” – (Rev.2:23).
You cannot conceal anything from God. He is the one who knows the thoughts of the heart, and everything is open to Him. All lives are an open book to Him. All our acts and thoughts and every minute details of our lives are naked in his sight. We may try to cover up our evil, but we are naked in his sight. There is nothing covered, for all coverings are as Adam’s fig leaves.
(Gen.6:5) tells us that God looked down in the days of Noah and saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, “and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually,” and God declared that He would destroy man from the face of the earth. God has not changed. He looks into the thoughts and hearts of men today. Jesus said – “From within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders… all these evil things come from within, and defile the man” – (Mk.7:21-23).
Christ cannot be deceived. He is omniscient. His eyes see all and His ears hear all. We may play the hypocrite and deceive men, but not the Lord. The Holy trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is the Holy One and the great Supreme Watcher over this earth. “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” – (Prov.15:3).
But God has created angels that also are
watchers and holy ones. In (Dan.4) we see them make a decree upon Emperor
Consider the great intelligence of these holy watchers that keep watch over the affairs of this world. God created intelligent angels who help to administer His universe and the world in which we live. Many people think they can live in secret, that they are not under the eye of God. We talk about enjoying our privacy, but the truth is, you and I have no privacy. (Ps.139:7-12) tells us that we cannot get away from God, no matter where we go. Secret sin on earth is open scandal up yonder in heaven. God knows all about it and His intelligent angels know about it also and God handles it in a holy and just way.
We may say that these angelic Holy watchers are immortal beings who watch the universe with advanced technology a million times more advanced than earth. These angelic holy watchers are under the watchful eye of the Holy One who is Lord of heaven and earth. Space has no limitation to God’s holy watchers. They are ‘Far Watchers’ indeed. We use telescopes that come from our two words ‘far watcher’ that enables man to see over far distances. We are also using orbiting satellites that can zoom in and take pictures of small objects on earth from high in heaven. Our technology has increased our ability to see and hear from far away – we are becoming far watchers from heaven but we certainly are not “holy” watchers as we use this knowledge in a mostly evil way.
Another name for telescope is ‘spyglass.’ Spy means (to watch secretly, usually for hostile purposes). Government watchers spy on people for evil purposes – they are wicked, “unholy watchers.” Remember George Orwell’s book – ‘1984’ and the Big Brother dictatorship. They had images of Big Brother everywhere with the words ‘Big Brother is watching you.’ Big Brother – which well could be interpreted Antichrist – soon will be ‘watching you’ with ultra – sophisticated satellites and databases, merging into the worldwide system of the NSA. NSA tramps all over civil rights and the constitution. They have global access to anything through their satellites and technology. The satellites are called ‘eyes in the sky.’
Without a doubt Big Brother has arrived. I
believe this dictator–type character will show himself soon as the incarnate
devil man, the Antichrist, the end times ‘beast-man’ described in the books of Daniel
and Revelation. No one will be able to buy or sell without the mark of the
Beast (666) in their forehead or right hand. He will use sophisticated computer
equipment and spy technologies to enable him to keep watch over everyone. I believe
the ‘666 Beast’ computer system is the NSA which will be controlled by the President-Beast.
Soon we will lose all privacy – The Beast’s NSA will be watching over us. The
Beast looks like unto a leopard (Rev.13:2), and he will watch over
Employees for NSA are sometimes called ‘watchers.’ The eyes and ears of Antichrist will be NSA who will be watching and listening to the world for evil purposes – not God’s holy watchers but Satan’s evil watchers – amen.
Yes, God’s holy watchers are plainly shown
to us in (Dan.4) because emperor Nebuchadnezzar is the best type of the
end-time Beast in the Old Testament. God will give
God’s saints who will be saved during the
great tribulation will be watched and spied upon and beheaded by the Beast. It
was done to our Savior, why not to us. It is written of the wicked chief priests
and scribes against Jesus – “And they
watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that
they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the
power and authority of the governor” – (Lk.20:20). Evil religion
always get the secular power to do their evil work for them. The Beast
and his false prophet will work together in spying on the great tribulation
saints and persecuting them. After eating from the tree of knowledge for 6000
years man now has become like God with his ‘eyes in the sky’ that watch over
the earth. Big brother Beast will soon be coming to
Two groups of angels that especially stand out as God’s holy watches are the seraphim and the cherubim. “And their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels, were full of eyes round about, even the wheels that they four had” – (Ezk.10:12). “And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, which was and is, and is to come” – (Rev.4:8). Notice the phrase “full of eyes.” Certainly the eyes show the omniscience and omnipresence of God who sees all and knows all. They show the perfect unlimited intelligence of God and His ability to see not only the present, but the past and future as well. They show the foresight and the farsight and the nearsight and the insight and the hindsight and every other sight, of an omniscient holy God. The eyes show the complete knowledge, understanding and wisdom and perfect sight of God, both physical and spiritual. His sight can even read the thoughts of man, and distance and time have no bearing on His perfect sight.
These angels typify the all-seeing holy eyes of God. They are God’s holy watchers with the spiritual sight of God’s Holy Spirit, having never sinned like the evil, fallen angels who are now the evil watchers. They are full of eyes, “The eyes of the Lord which run to and fro through the whole earth” – (Zach.4:10) and which the holy angels have always an eye to. They watch 24 hours a day because they have no need to rest day or night. Satan is a cherubim and ruler of all the wicked angelic watchers” – (Ezk.28:14).
God placed these cherubims with a flaming sword which turned every way, to watch over and keep the tree of life. They watch continually for a person to choose the way of eternal life through Christ on the tree-cross. They watch for a person to repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ in their heart by faith and receive forgiveness of sins. Then they open the way into eternal life. “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” – (Jn.14:6).
The Lord Jesus Christ is the only way into the tree of eternal life. “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; an he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” – (I Jn.5:11,12). Do not spurn the love and grace of God in his beloved Son on the cross or the wrath of hell abideth upon you. Be saved and let God open your eyes with the Holy Spirit and make you a holy watcher for Him.
When you’re born again you will have new eyes and the insight to know that the second coming of Christ is near and we are to “watch ye, stand fast in the faith” – (I Cor.16:13) and watch for His coming – “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” – (Mt.24:42).
Be saved and be a holy watcher for God.
