THE TRUMPET

May 2, 2020

With all of the events that we are experiencing on earth, I share the sentiment of Apostle Paul who said for that which he was waiting in Titus 2:13, “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.” This appearing will coincide with Jesus descending from heaven and the trump of God sounding as recorded in 1 Corinthians 15:52 and 1 Thessalonians 4:16. Furthermore, just reading about the splendor of heaven I can only imagine what the trumpets in heaven look like.

The sound of a trumpet which was accompanied with thunder, lightning and a thick cloud of smoke upon the quaking mount Sinai was first mentioned in the Exodus 19:13,16,19. It has been concluded that this trumpet was blown from heaven because God did not assign an individual on earth to blow a trumpet, and its’ sound was so loud and long it caused the Israelites in the camp to trembled.

Trumpets designed by God and made by man were recorded in Numbers 10. According to scripture at the beginning of Israel’s journey through the wilderness beside the making of the tabernacle and its holy items God told Moses to make two trumpets of silver to use for the calling of the assembly, for the journeying of the camps, for an alarm in case of an enemy attack, and the announcement of the feasts and new months. Only the priest was allowed to blow these trumpets and they were given instructions on the various sounds that were to be made on them. Thus, when the people heard the sounds of the trumpet they knew how to respond.

Throughout the Bible, you can read the events where the silver trumpets were employed for the above mention reasons. However, in Revelation John describes the use of trumpets to announce the second set of judgments upon the earth and its inhabitants but details of these trumpets were not given (Revelation 8 -11). I can only speculate that one of these trumpets or one similar to the one used in Exodus 19 will be utilized to announce the coming of Jesus in the clouds to assemble his body to Him, and I await the sound with great anticipation.

In closing this blog, my question to you is, have you made your calling and election sure, and are you ready to be caught up in the air to be with the Lord? If not, this is your opportunity to invite God into your life, don’t wait or hesitate. I want you to be in the number who hear the trumpet sound, I don’t want you to be left behind.
