4.) Our Fear and Our Dream
Fear - Found in Judges
Judges 2:8–15 NLT
Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died at the age of 110. They buried him in the land he had been allocated, at Timnath-serah in the hill country of Ephraim, north of Mount Gaash. After that generation died, another generation grew up who did not acknowledge the Lord or remember the mighty things he had done for Israel. The Israelites did evil in the Lord’s sight and served the images of Baal. They abandoned the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They went after other gods, worshiping the gods of the people around them. And they angered the Lord. They abandoned the Lord to serve Baal and the images of Ashtoreth. This made the Lord burn with anger against Israel, so he handed them over to raiders who stole their possessions. He turned them over to their enemies all around, and they were no longer able to resist them. Every time Israel went out to battle, the Lord fought against them, causing them to be defeated, just as he had warned. And the people were in great distress.
Dream - A generation trained up biblically.

A Watchman
Watchman - An individual who was positioned in a tower or a city wall to look for invaders or approaching disaster.
(Example: Paul Revere)
Ezekiel was called by the Lord.
Ezekiel 33:7 NLT
“Now, son of man, I am making you a watchman for the people of Israel. Therefore, listen to what I say and warn them for me.
3 Cries to the Church in America
1.) There is an enemy, and he is looking to steal, kill, and destroy.
Ezekiel 33:1–6 NLT
Once again a message came to me from the Lord: “Son of man, give your people this message: ‘When I bring an army against a country, the people of that land choose one of their own to be a watchman. When the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. Then if those who hear the alarm refuse to take action, it is their own fault if they die. They heard the alarm but ignored it, so the responsibility is theirs. If they had listened to the warning, they could have saved their lives. But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn’t sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their captivity. They will die in their sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their deaths.’
-The spiritual battle is real! Let us not deny or feel weird about the spiritual realm.
(Personal Example: I had no problem with psychics but for some reason I would deny the truth of the spiritual gifts.)
2.) We as the Church in America need to repent of our wickedness.
-Jesus Christ is our first love!
-We need to stop playing games!
-We need to wake up!
-We can’t tolerate sin!
3.) Righteous Living Is A Daily Choice.
