Hush…be still…and listen. Did you hear it? Listen carefully again, there it is…just a few notes …trumpet sounds. Yes, it’s the Angel Gabriel practicing the notes of the trumpet call that will precede our going home to be with the Lord.
It’s unsettling to think that this trumpet blast will be the loudest ever known to mankind yet heard by so very few all over the world. Before you can hear the sound; you first have to see with the eyes of faith and then prepare your circumcised Born Again heart to hear it.
The Bible says the people of God are sojourners here. That word simply means aliens or as reflected in some Gospel music…were just passing on through… because this world is not our home. We long to go to that city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
For those that “Seek God with all their hearts and minds”, God has given prophetic signs in the Old Testament. These signs describe the Redeemer, the Messiah who would come to save us from our sins. The identity of this Messiah is hidden in the Old Testament within Messianic Prophecies. In the New Testament the Messiah is revealed, it becomes clear that Gods Messiah, Redeemer is Jesus.
Jesus said “My Sheep Know MY Voice……Jesus said Faith in Him is the only way home. Believe in me He says and I will give you a personal ticket so you can finally go home to be with Me when you hear that trumpet call.
Believe in Me, He said…………Why should I believe in Him? He hasn’t come yet. I cannot use any of my senses to touch Him. We are physical beings, right, we have taste, touch, smell, hearing, seeing yet the Bible says we also are Spiritual Beings. That means we are capable of believing in something, or someone we cannot see through the eyes of faith.
Michael Card said it best in the lyrics of one of his songs:
“That’s What Faith Must Be”. To hear with my heart, To see with my soul, To be guided by a hand I cannot hold, To trust in a way that I cannot see, That’s what faith must be.
Amazing. How Humbling to know that I live in the Generation that will see the DAWN of ETERNITY! I am profoundly JOYFUL, and profoundly SAD at the same time for SO MANY that I Love and want Desperately to come to Faith in the SON of GOD, The Messiah of Israel and the Christ of HIS Church. The SANDS in the Hour Glass of Physical Time will soon be no more. ETERNITY has no end for those Blessed and those Judged. EVEN SO COME LORD JESUS !
There are 2 Surprises coming for EVERY NATION on the face of the earth.
The 1st will be when Jesus steps onto the Mt. of Olives AGAIN to Defend Israel.
The 2nd will be when every person that came against Israel stands before JESUS and LOOKS into HIS EYES of FIRE and then goes to their place prepared for them to live Forever ALONE in the Darkness of the LAKE of FIRE, WITHOUT HOPE of ever getting out.
They will become the Forgotten Forever as the dead continue to live their Eternal 2nd Death.
