Today we are talking about discernment ministries and the role of the “watchman.” Ezekiel 33 speaks of the watchman, and we know we are to test the spirits in all things:
1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
If you haven’t checked out our Resources Page with links to many of the hundreds of discernment research sites available today, here is the link. We believe that the duty of Watchmen and Discernment Ministries to point out error or potential problems without being vicious. Interestingly, not all discernment ministries agree on every point. How then can we as discernment ministries stand for the truth in love, without attacking one another when disagreements come up?
Joining us for the discussion today is long time radio talk show host Jan Markell, founder and president of Olive Tree Ministries, a non-profit organization has been watching the times in the Church since 1982. Her nationally-syndicated radio program “Understanding The Times” is heard around the world.
Jan will also discuss how the growth of Replacement Theology has lead many churches to not discuss end times prophecy.
