How many times have you noticed traffic signals that are designed to give notice and warn of impending road hazards, and have neglected to take heed to those warnings?
God has placed more serious warnings in His Holy Scriptures. We must take heed if we expect to avoid the dangers and hazards of disobedience to the commandments of God - Ezekiel 33:1-7
In the Bible, the Word of God, there are warnings from God that we must heed to be in a right relationship with Him. Every sermon preached from the Word of God and Class from the Bible contain admonitions and warnings that we must heed to receive the blessed reward from God - Psalm 19:7-11
In Hebrews 11:7 God teaches us that by faith Noah responded to God's warning, building the ark that saved his family when he was warned by God of the destruction that would come by the great flood of waters. Furthermore, while Noah built the ark, he was warning the people to get on the ark because of the coming flood that would destroy life - 2 Peter 2:5
What will happen if you fail to respond to the trumpet sound of Godís warnings? What would happen if one neglected to respond to a firm alarm going off in a building? Mark 16:16; Luke 13:3
Like Ezekiel sounded the alarm, we, as Christians, are to be watchmen. We have the charge to warn the lost in this world to flee from sin and believe in Jesus for their salvation - Matthew 28:19-20
We must take heed to Godís warnings or suffer the consequences. In Hebrews 3:12-14 we are admonished to take heed to Godís Word, lest an evil heart of unbelief comes upon us.
Therefore, let us make sure we respond to Godís trumpet call of warnings and obey His commandments that we might live.
Heed His warnings and accept the Salvation that God offers: Hear - Believe - Repent - Confess - Be Baptized
