Who is The Old Watchman?
My name is Lonnie Richardson and I am The Old Watchman. I was identified by the prophetic words of five separate sources and stirred by the Holy Spirit of God to heft and sound the biblical trumpets (shofar) in obedience to God’s Word and the direction of Holy Spirit.
I am a husband, a father, and a grandfather. I am a Deacon, and a Minister of the Gospel, I am a member of God’s Sopherim. I watch over my local church body. I watch over the East Tennessee Valley. Indeed, I am one of many watching over a nation.
No, I’m not kidding. I take it quite seriously. Ezekiel 33:2-6 (NASB95)
2 “Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, ‘If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman,
3 and he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows on the trumpet and warns the people,
4 then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head.
5 ‘He heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he taken warning, he would have delivered his life.
6 ‘But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.’
Now, that is serious calling on a person’s life and it prescribes serious consequences for those who will not take the warnings of the watchman. There are even more serious consequences for the watchman should he become derelict in his duties. Oh, believe me, I take it seriously.
However, I make one thing clear. While the use of the shofar according to God’s Word is interwoven into that which is considered miraculous, there is nothing magical, mystical, or metaphysical about the horn of a dead animal. There is nothing magical, mystical, or metaphysical about the man sounding the shofar. BUT, when the man sounds the shofar in accordance to instructions given in God’s Word or by the direction of Holy Spirit THEN we should EXPECT supernatural manifestations to occur.
Why? Because the sound of the Shofar is that which is like the voice of GOD! I know that is a hard pill to swallow. but hang around for a little while. I’ll show it to you in Scripture.
I am Lonnie Richardson and I am The Old Watchman!
