February 2, 2012 – I hear a sound…

I hear the sound
of a mighty rushing wind
and it’s closer now
than it’s ever been
I can almost hear the trumpet
as Gabriel sounds the chord
at the midnight cry
we’ll be going home.

Midnight Cry lyrics, Alvin Slaugther

I remember when I first got saved and became active in my home church in Tallahassee, Florida once I moved there.  This song would always stir me and would drive the audience/congregation (same thing in modern church) into an ecstatic frenzy.

Then one Sunday in mid 1993 this song was sung during a service and instead of the familiar joy from hearing it and seeing the crowd reaction I became very saddened.  While everyone else was on their feet and cheering I sat alone in my pew.  I was puzzled by this and asked the Lord what I was feeling.  He did not answer my question as asked but answered it nonetheless when I heard Him say, “I never told you to celebrate this event but to use it to inspire you to do what I said to do.  Instead of cheering that you are going home you should be saddened for those who are not and doing something about it!”  The tone of His voice was sadly serious.

I never heard this song the same again after that.  It wouldn’t be too much longer before I heard Him say “come out from amongst them and be separate” and my release from religion and into being the church as opposed to sitting in one began.  I now hear the song Midnight Cry as a reminder there is so much more work to do and we don’t have time to waste with self-indulgent spectacles as previously mentioned.

By the way, there is no where in The Bible that says Gabriel will blow the horn in question.  The two scriptures quoted are actually about two different events:

16 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. 17 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.

The “meet the Lord in the air” represents the Rapture.

Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed

15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”

This represents the Second Coming and final judgement as prophesied in Zechariah 2:10-11 and Zechariah 14:3-4 and confirmed in Acts 1:9-11 by the two angels who appear as the Lord ascends into Heaven.  This leads us back to here 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.

Now that we have that clear let’s talk about all of these sounds supposedly being heard all over the world since last year but have been escalating the beginning of the new year.

Many of the witnesses claim to hear some sort of horn or trumpet.

Do these trumpets line up with the seven trumpets of judgement:

First Trumpet: Vegetation Struck

The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck

Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck

10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

Fourth Trumpet: The Heavens Struck

12 Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

Fifth Trumpet: The Locusts from the Bottomless Pit

9 Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.

Sixth Trumpet: The Angels from the Euphrates

13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed

15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”

The answer as to whether they line up or not is still undecided.  What is decided is that we should test the spirits and the stories being promoted by the media and new age/non-Biblical sources.  And, we should pay attention.  If, and that is a big IF, we are hearing the sounds of trumpets 1 & 2 as shown by world events/tragedies we need to get busy.

And, for those of you who want a supernatural/paranormal experience I say wait for trumpet 5.

You’ll have all the supernatural/paranormal “experiences” you can handle! ;-)

Having said all of that, and I hope you had ears to hear, listen to the song referred to at the start of the blog and see if you feel differently.

Maybe you won’t.  I’ve heard some believers say they are happy they have their ticket home and that’s all that matters.  I hope for your sake that is true.

Let me know how it works out for you!

Until then, it’s getting noisy and dark out there so we are leaving the LIGHT on!
