In 2015, I received a prophetic word on what's about to happen in the watchman ministry. Nearly seven years ago, God was preparing what we're starting to see in this hour. I heard the Lord say:
"Watchman ministry will receive newfound respect in the coming hour as Christians find themselves blindsided by world events. Watchman and spiritual warriors will connect in new ways, working together in unity to push back the darkness trying to stop the manifestation of the glorious church. Prophets who have been hidden in the wilderness will emerge with fresh oil on their shields and fresh revelation in their hearts to declare the uncompromising word of the Lord by faith."
With violence raging in the nations, pandemics, governmental coups and other blindsiding events, the church appears ready to receive the ministry of the prophetic watchman like never before. Indeed, the Lord is calling forth a new generation of prophetic watchmen. He's calling those who can learn from the watchmen of yesterday while watching right now and preparing the watchmen of tomorrow.
When you think of a watchman, you may think of Old Testament prophets. Watchmen aren't necessarily prophets. Jesus called us all to watch and pray (see Matthew 26:41). In a new era of the prophetic movement, God is pulling from all walks of life and making, shaping and molding the willing into wise watchmen who will pull from treasures old and new (see Matthew 13:52).
Modern watchmen will be soccer moms and CEOs. Contemporary watchmen will be elementary school students and grocery store clerks. As we go deeper into the end-times, we need to be the prophetic watchman to stand on His wall: watch, warn and pray. While many people reject watchmen, God is putting a spotlight on this critical ministry of both warning and hope.
