Waiting for the Last Trumpet!

Dry bones Messiah

YOM TERUAH! We are at the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles. Today we are hearing the Sounding of the Trumpets, which is Yom Teruah, the first Fall Feast. In light of all the signs in the heavens, the wars and rumors of wars, and the terrible natural disasters, it is good to lift up our eyes to the Heavens. Our redemption is closer than ever.

And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come. Matthew 24:6-8 NLT

“Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:28 NKJV

It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 NLT

There are many believers who sincerely believe Jesus may come this weekend. Personally, I think there are a few more prophesies to be fulfilled, like Isaiah 17. However, I could be wrong, so my lamp is trimmed and ready!

One time I was musing out loud, in a message I was preaching, that the times of great tribulation would be a wonderful time to share the Messiah. After I was finished, Doreen made me promise to go on the first load. So, I always “stay ready.” Maybe it will be decades before the great appearing of our Lord and Savior, but we stay alert and watching.

Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen. You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near. James 5:7-8 NLT

The servants who are ready and waiting for his return will be rewarded. I tell you the truth, he himself will seat them, put on an apron, and serve them as they sit and eat! Luke 12:37 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
