Warning Labels


Ezekiel 2:7" You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious."


Consumer Warning Labels Aren’t Working any more.  They alert us to the risks of eating unhealthy junk foods, smoking cigarettes, taking prescription drugs, and performing many other activities ;however, we have stopped listening and watching Danger signals, therefore, there are more broken lives today.
For example, a Batman outfit bears this caveat: "Parents, please exercise caution--For Play Only. Mask and cape are not protective; cape does not enable user to fly."

People don't take warnings and instructions seriously, they overlook the label.  In the Abide School(free school for the  poor) that we run, I introduced a system of reading the RULES OF THE SCHOOL at the School assembly in the morning: home work, tidiness, respect for teachers, etiquettes ..everything is covered; however, since they hear it everyday , except for very few, others treat it carelessly. Such is the wicked and rebellious heart of people today who do not even want to listen.


Likewise, today people have stopped obeying the commandments of God.
◆Honoring Sabbath day by respecting the Time of the service is more important than mere attendance. Are people strong in their commitment to Church on Sunday? Anybody listening??
◆Do not yoke with unbelievers is thrown out of the window during marriage
◆Do not speak ill of others is a command, how many obey anyway.
Nevertheless, God told prophet Ezekiel to speak to the people and point out their mistakes, whether they listen or not.


The great “unsinkable” Titanic ship ignored warnings of ice bergs in the vicinity, maintained a high speed, hit an iceberg because it couldn’t change course fast enough, and sank, most passengers died, in large part because there weren’t enough lifeboats. Are you listening? Considering that safety was supposed to be paramount, the behavior of the crew is baffling, to the point of negligence. Don’t we have lessons to learn today from the above incidence, of the catastrophe that awaits everyone who choose to ignore warnings!


God’s warnings are to protect us, not to punish us.
