This past week at the Haven (watch the message here) we learned that trumpets were blown in Old Testament Israel for several reasons:
1 Corinthians 15:51-52 – ‘Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.’
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 – ‘For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.’
What emotions are stirred in you when you think of God’s final trumpet call? God has provided a way through faith in Jesus Christ that it would not be feelings of terror and dread, but rather feelings of hope, elation and victory! Have you trusted in Jesus as Savior and King?
Revelation 22:20-21 – He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.
