THE TRUMPET IS SOUNDING

Warriors for God
1 Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming. It is close at hand–
2 a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, such as never was in ancient times nor ever will be in ages to come.
3 Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste– nothing escapes them.
Blow the trumpet!
The trumpet sounding is long, and it is long to get everyone’s attention, both the slave and the free, saved and unsaved, so they may see there is a changing of the guard and a changing in the world. It is before us right now!
It is the midnight hour!! It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of an angry God!
Pursue God with everything you have!!
Flee the judgment and destruction that is coming!
Fear God, love God, and flee evil as if you are being pursued by a wall of flames moving at the speed of a race horse!
Run to the hill of the Lord, and you will not fall.
Throw off every weight and sin!
Abandon all and forsake all, as if your very life depends on it,
because it does!!
Cast off unbelief, complacency, compromise, and aim for the prize!!
Focus, concentrate, be steadfast, and determined!
Set your face like flint and be unmovable, unshakable, and unstoppable!
Be a calf released from the stall, fleeing the evil desires of youth, and pressing on toward that goal to win the prize, which is fellowship and intimacy with God and being perfectly conformed to the image of His Son.
There is nothing else to live for—for that is our DESTINY!!!
You need to throw off every weight and sin!
You need to run after God now or that flame is going to consume your flesh!
The flame has always been there.
You are now out of time!
Our God is a consuming FIRE!!
You will either be consumed by the fire and devoured, or consumed with Him and be on fire for Him, having allowed Him to purge all impurities and imperfections, and embraced the fiery trials which have come to purify you from everything that contaminates body and spirit perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. Before He comes for us, He comes to us, to purge us and prepare us for the wedding.
But who can endure the day of His coming? Who can stand when He appears? For He will be like a refiner’s fire and a launderer’s soap.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
If you allow yourself to be consumed by Him, then you must produce fruit because He is pruning you.
The ax is being laid to the root of the tree in your life by the fiery trials which are to try you and your dead, fruitless branches are being cut down and thrown into the fire!
The trumpet in Zion was blown for you a long time ago.
You could not endure. You could not stand in the day of the Lord!
You were tried and found wanting. You didn’t stand when He appeared to you. You bowed and worshiped at His feet. And the many hardships and trials you endured, you knew were for the perfecting of your faith, and now you must finish the race!
You must press on toward the goal to win the prize, to attain to the whole measure of the fullness of the stature of Christ.
You must be a vessel made holy, useful to the Master to do any good work, having been consumed by a ZEAL for God, no longer being cold, or lukewarm for God, but HOT!!
You must have your lamps BURNING and awaken yourself, no longer part of the 10 sleeping virgins of Matthew 25, and be eagerly awaiting your Master! Your Groom!
Now being a bride ready, with no other lovers, faithful, dedicated, in love, full of passion, and waiting for that day to be united with your Groom!
You must be that bride without stain or wrinkle, or any other blemish, but HOLY and BLAMELESS, and ready for HIS APPEARING!!
Let the preparation of the wedding begin!!
1 Corinthians 3:13-15
…their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.
If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.
If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved–even though only as one escaping through the flames.
This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The LORD is our God.'”
