A Revelation about Trumpets – Part 2

[In Part 1 we looked at the Biblical Feast of Trumpets and the mystery-meaning of the shofar/trumpet, starting from the Torah and all the way to its final revelation – in the book of Revelation]

The Seventh Trumpet

Revelation 10:7:

אוּלָם בִּימֵי קוֹל הַמַּלְאָךְ הַשְּׁבִיעִי, בְּעָמְדוֹ לִתְקֹעַ בַּשּׁוֹפָר, גַּם יֻשְׁלַם רָז הָאֱלֹהִים, כְּמוֹ שֶׁבִּשֵּׂר לַעֲבָדָיו הַנְּבִיאִים.

“But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.”

Each trumpet blast announces a judgment on the nations.  Each reveals a mystery. Each warns the nations that they have to submit to the governing authority of God’s king, Messiah Yeshua. All the trumpets call the kingdoms of this world to submit. That is the mystery. That is the prophetic message. The seventh trumpet is the full message.

Revelation 11:15:

הַמַּלְאָךְ הַשְּׁבִיעִי תָּקַע בַּשּׁוֹפָר וְקוֹלוֹת גְּדוֹלִים נִשְׁמְעוּ בַּשָּׁמַיִם אוֹמְרִים:

“הָיְתָה מַמְלֶכֶת תֵּבֵל לְמַמְלַכְתּוֹ שֶׁל אֲדוֹנֵנוּ וְשֶׁל מְשִׁיחוֹ וְהוּא יִמְלֹךְ לְעוֹלְמֵי עוֹלָמִים.”

 

“Then the seventh angel sounded his trumpet, 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!’”

Each trumpet judgment changes the world; each changes the kingdoms of this world.  The first set of trumpet messages are exhortations from God to the ecclesia.  The second set of trumpet messages are warnings from God through the ecclesia to the nations of the world. The general messages are to us.  The prophetic messages are through us.

Our Positioning

As part of the process, we become like the shofar.  We become the mouthpiece of God to the nations of this world. We are to cause spiritual change in the kingdoms of this world by the power of the Holy Spirit, the authority of King Yeshua, coming through our praise, prayer and proclamation.

As we pray during this Feast of Trumpets, let us listen to understand what God is saying to us and what God is saying to the nations.  His megas phone (loud voice) will change us and cause a change in the kingdoms of this world.  We can expect great changes to happen, both to us as the ecclesia and through us as the ecclesia to the nations of the world.

Let’s not only celebrate the day of trumpets. Let’s become the trumpet of God.  Let’s be His shofar.  Let’s hear God’s voice and be changed.  Let’s proclaim the word of God and see the kingdoms of the world changed. Let’s do it now, at this Day of Trumpets.

    Thank you Asher for the encouragement for us to become the trumpet of God. The following poem came to my heart a few years ago and the truth of the words in it are resounding louder and louder as the Lord is building His global church to prepare a dwelling place for His presence.

    New Dawn

    A new dawn is breaking
    East west south and north
    The power of My love
    Is calling you forth

    Waken My children
    Now glorious in Me
    My treasure and love
    For all soon to see

    I’m building My church
    Come yield to My hand
    I’ll gently place you
    Where you’re to stand

    Stones are scattered
    And in disarray
    Give ear to Me now
    I’ll show you the Way

    To rebuild the wall
    Repair every breach
    This generation
    Then higher can reach

    Apostles and prophets
    A foundation true
    Past labors of love
    All building stones too

    Each generation
    In turn took its place
    Gemstones of beauty
    By My love and grace

    Your generation
    United in Me
    Now placed by My love
    Completion will see

    The power of love
    Flowing from My throne
    Is mortar that holds
    Each stone next to stone

    My faithfulness is
    Your shield and rampart
    Ask of Me dear ones
    And I’ll guard your heart

    As you follow Me
    All that I have planned
    Will be set in place
    By My loving hand

    Returning to Zion
    Redeemed you’ll rejoice
    And silence forever
    Old Babylon’s voice

    In fullness of time
    By My love alone
    You’ll all be in place
    ‘Neath Zion’s Capstone

    God’s sons all revealed
    The earth for to see
    My bride’s face unveiled
    The church One in Me

    “Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
    See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
    but the LORD rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
    Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
    – Isaiah 60:1-3

    As you come to him, the living Stone — rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him — you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
    – 1 Peter 2:4-5
