"The Trumpet Shall Sound ! We have to Know The Signal(s) !"

 

Hello Doves
What Trumpet sound are we listening for?
In Revelation 1:10 God's voice is referred to in scripture as different sounds, in different typology and different contexts. In this passage it is a Trumpet.
There are many other references in scripture.
1. Mighty rushing waters.
2. The sound of Thunder
When one hears thunder, only the people of God will understand what is said, while others will only hear the noise. They' only know that something is happening, but only the Lord's faithful will know what God is saying.
John heard the Voice of the 7 thunders, but God said;  Seal up THOSE THINGS which the 7 thunders uttered, and write them not. Rev.10:3-4 KJV

This is a general truth as well. When one picks up the News Paper and reads the things going on in the Middle East, everyone knows what is happening, but only the faithful know that these things are fulfilling prophecy.
When the Voice of God sounds like a Trumpet, it is a "signal" that something is about to happen. It is a Trumpet in this passage, and therefore it is associated with the return of Christ.
Lets look at 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17
For the Lord "himself" shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, And' with the "Trump" of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then' we which are alive and remain shall be caught up "together" with [in the clouds] to meet the Lord "in the air": and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore [comfort] one another with these words.
Lets look also at 1 Corinthians 15:51-53
Behold, I' shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall [all] the changed.' in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, [at] "the last Trump:" for the Trumpet' shall sound, and the dead shall be raised "incorruptible," and we shall be changed. For this corruptible "must" put on incorruption, and this mortal must' put on immortality.
Now, lets look at Matthew 24:31
And he shall [send his angel(s)] with a great sound of "a Trumpet," and [they] "shall gather" together' his elect [from the four winds, "from one end of [heaven] to the other.
What is different about this' gathering, than the gathering in 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 and 1 Corinthians 15:52-53 ?
They are Two different gatherings. These are gathered from the four winds of [heaven] by "his angels." This is our journeying back with Christ when he comes in power and great glory as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and we come with' him from heaven to earth.
In 1 Thessalonians and 1 Corinthians, we are being "caught up" to Jesus {in the clouds] from the earth at the Rapture.

Both of these involve "The Trumpet." Lets us not forget, God had the Israelites to make Two Trumpets of an Whole piece of Silver, in the wilderness.
One for the gathering together the congregation, and One for their journeying and Alarm. Two Trumpets, Two occasions.

The scripture also speaks of a Shofar," it is a Rams Horn. God made "this" when he made the beasts of the field.
God had the Israelites make the Two Silver Trumpets of an Whole piece of Silver. A metallic Trumpet.
Which one of these Two Trumpets will be blown at our catching away, rapture?

The Shofar, "the ram's horn, is the trumpet blown at Jericho, and the walls fell down.
Could the "Shofar" the ram's horn, be the one blown at the Rapture?
 
No, it cannot be! It has a future meaning, and a future significance, but it can not be the One' of the Resurrection. Why?
Because the Shofar is blown for ordinances. On Rosh Ha Shanna, and it is blown on the day of atonement, and the year of Jubilee. So; therefore we know the [exact day] and [hour] it is going to be blown.
We can not know the [hour] of our Lords return. We cannot know [the day or the hour] when heaven and earth shall pass away. Of THAT day and HOUR only the Father knows, not even the angels in heaven, NOR the Son, but the Father only.
We are told to "Watch" for the master of the house to return and be doing the work we are called to do, because we do not know what [hour] the master will return.
It can not possibly be "the Shofar." It must be the Metallic Trumpet (s), that leaves us with the Silver Trumpets.
Lets look at Numbers 10:1-2.
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Make thee Two Trumpets of Silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou may [use them] for the "calling" of the assembly, and for "the journeying of the camps."
Unlike the "Ram's Horn," people were to [be involved] in what the signal was.
Silver in biblical typology is one of the 3 metals used in the construction of the temple, And the tabernacle.
The First is Brass ie; the brazen alter, as you proceed into the Holy place, it is more Silver, when you get to "the Most Holy Place" it is [all] pure unbeaten gold. Gold is non-oxidizing, it will not corrode or rust. Hence it  represents that which is eternal.
Silver will not oxidize, but it will sulfurize. Silver relates to the price of salvation, it represents something concerning salvation. It goes back to the " half Shekel" for the first born. Jesus being the first born" of the Father. Jesus was betrayed with silver. Silver relates to salvation.
Before man falls, you do not see silver in Genesis.
God uses money to get people.
Worldly churches use people to get money to line their own pockets.

Let me explain:
Remember Ananiass and Sapphira his wife, sold a possession and Satan filled their heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and [keep back] part' of the price of the land. Acts chapter 5.
Peter said; thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God, and God killed both Ananias and Sapphira his wife, for this act.
Have any of us considered that when we give our tithes and offerings to furthering the gospel of the kingdom, we; according to God's law we are not to keep back any portion of that tithe or offering, even if the law of our land allows us to write it off on our taxes?
Freely we receive of the gospel of the kingdom, and freely we give to further it.
Silver has to do with salvation, something we invest in. It is a signal, we should be telling people "something is coming." This is what Jesus called "the gospel of the kingdom."
How do we evangelize people in a post Christian neo-pagan world when people are so apathetic? People want to know the future; they seek all avenues of finding this out. We know the future, it is written in our Bible.
We further the gospel of the kingdom when we use prophecy.

The Silver Trumpet is made by human hands. We are to proclaim the message,
of "the gospel of the kingdom" and that "something is going to happen."
Hosea 8:1  Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He' shall come as an eagle against "the house of the Lord," because [they] have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law. 1 Peter 4:17  For the [time] is come that judgment "must" begin [at] the house of God: and [if] it first begin [at] us, what shall the end be of them that know not the gospel of God?
The two trumpets of Numbers 10 are for the gathering "together" of the congregation, and for the journeying of the people, and for the sounding of Alarm. When both' trumpets are blown together, God wants [everyone] in the camp to assemble unto Moses.
But when "they are to journey the alarm is blown for their journeying [each camp] A Sounding of the trumpet of alarm.
But when the congregation is to be "gathered together" the priests will blow, but they [shall not] sound an alarm.

Something interesting to note:
Today, Jerusalem, according to those who have been there, say, that the city is set up much like it was in the days of Jesus. In verse 5 of Numbers 10, we see that the camps that lie to the East parts shall go forward FIRST when the  journeying and alarm is blown. In Jerusalem today the dead are buried on the East side. Even here in the west, when our dead are buried, they are buried in such a way and in such a manner, that if they were to sit up, they would be facing East.
Paul records in 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Our Lord (himself) will descend "from heaven" and the dead rise first. Paul said; at the Last "Trump" we who are alive and remain are caught up together with them (in the clouds) and we shall ever be with the Lord.
In Numbers 10:6  When ye blow an alarm the SECOND time, then the camps that lie to the south side shall take their journey; they" shall blow an alarm for their' journey.
God wants NO false alarms!
In verse 7) But when the congregation is to be gathered together" ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm.
In verse 8) the priests had to know [which] trumpet [type] was to be blown for an "ordinance" [foe ever] throughout [their generations.]
They had to know ahead of time, Which Signal.
The warning signal worked well, but they had to know ahead of time which signals.
We have:
1. Convocations
2. Signal to leave
3. An Alarm, but no false alarms
4. Which instrument is being blown
5. Which signal.
Paul wrote to the Corinthians in 14:7-11
And even things' without life giving sound, whether pipe, or harp, except they give a "distinction" in [the sounds] How shall it be known what is piped or harped? For if "the trumpet" give an "uncertain" SOUND, who shall "prepare" himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words [easy to be understood,] How shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.
There are: it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification. Therefore if I' know not what the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian unto me.

WHICH TRUMPET IS BEING BLOWN?
We have to know ahead of time
We have to know the signals
Is it a convocation- gathering together of the congregation?
Is it a gathering of the Princes of the Tribes?
Is it that God wants to speak to everyone in the camp?
Are our church leaders being taught to recognize the Signal(s)? NO
Are the people being taught to recognize the Signal(s)? NO
Are there False Alarms? YES
A. Rick Warren
B. 1988- 88 reasons
C. Harold Camping
D. The Blood Moons (these are not even visible in Israel)
These are being said to be SIGNS. Who always seeks a sign? If Israel does not see them from Jerusalem, who are these signs for?
 Knowing that [if] they are truly signs of Christ's coming, at the Rapture, shouldn't Israel be able to SEE them? After all, It would signify that God is taking the church out of the way, and his attention would [then] be turned toward Israel. These signs, if they are "the signs"  should surely, Israel be able to SEE them?

When you have people blowing False Alarms, you have a boy who cried wolf!
Therefore when the TRUE event happens, and sane "Christians" TRY TO WARN, and people will just think it is more nonsense.
Remember the righteous will know, but the wicked will not know. Satan uses these False Alarms.
The Signal" to Leave: How can we be rescued if we don't know there is a rescue?
Many teachers say there is NO Rapture.
We have these saying there is no rapture, and those who are blowing False Alarms. This is bad News !
Remember Jesus said; When' you see these things [begin] to come to pass, Look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption draweth nigh.
The Feast of Trumpets is " The Shofar" Ram's Horn, blown at ordinances, Not the Silver Trumpet(s).
I love you

God Bless you
