Isaiah 56:10 (KJB) His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
God is speaking in this verse concerning the spiritual leaders of the nation of Israel. Not only were they blind, but dumb and lazy. Perhaps these words may seem too strong in defining their lack of character. God does not mince words and always inspired just the right words to convey the proper meaning in scripture.
However, sadly, nothing has changed among lay people, pastors, and leaders, even today.
There are some God set in this world as watchmen who remain blind to the truth and continue to teach lies being ignorant to the many truths God gave us. They ignore the presence and power of God and to remain oblivious to Him. Choosing instead to slumber their lives away rather than to be directed according to His will and way for their lives as they sojourn in this world.
God brought each of us, pastors, leaders, and citizens alike, into this world with a specific job to accomplish for His glory and honor.
I hope you are not blind, ignorant, dumb, and lazy when it comes to the presence and power of God at work in this world and that you allow Him to direct your life according to his will and way.
