So I was in my bedroom preparing myself for the day and I heard a “dying” car horn. I thought nothing of it… I heard it again, still no biggie. But then I heard it again!!
“What is that?” What is that noise, I wondered? And there it was again! That weird sound…#puzzled #perplexed
It then dawned on me that my 12 year old grandson Calvin who had spent the night last night was in Zoom school! And “Band” was his first class of the day! And the trumpet was his choice of instrument to play!
So i ran downstairs to his bedroom and listened outside the closed door! (He does not live with me but he has a bed here!) And the video above is the music I enjoyed! The music a Grandmother loves to hear! Live music in my home from the one i adore! *sigh*
But actually, off the subject, I then began to wonder what the Bible has to say about trumpets? I know it is in there, when the trumpet sounds I will be “right” with God! (Well, it does not say THAT exactly, but i AM “right” with God!) And so on and so forth…So i looked it up in the Biblegateway….And there were many scriptures about the trumpet! Mostly end times scriptures, which I believe we are living in Now!
(Please Note: Revelation 8: 6-12 has alot to say about end time trumpets!) However I would like to concentrate on:
1 Thessolonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with the shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the TRUMPET of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
I have not always been “right” with God. In my late 20’s, I was “wrong” with God. I knew Hell was my destination and I did not know how NOT to go to Hell! I was in church every time the doors were opened. I did not drink, do drugs, curse, etc. I WAS “practically perfect in EVERY way!” ~Mary Poppins~(i was very legalistic) and on my way to the firey furnace of Hell. Loud horns or bells used to scare the heck out of me cuz i thought it could be the sounding trumpet of the archangel of God! And i was still here on earth! I would always make sure the kids were still “here”….that was how I knew “the rapture” had not yet taken place.
One late evening my kids HAD dissapeared after a loud “trumpet” had sounded through the streets of Castro Valley, where i lived at the time. I checked their beds and they were EMPTY! My heart dropped. But then a closer look, revealed them asleep on the floor!! Relief washed over my soul!
…. During this season of knowing Hell was my destiny; I had TWO dreams from God. In those dreams I was going to Hades. And in both dreams I was on the Dumbarton Bridge. Once spiraling down into the burning flames of the lake of fire, the other left behind as i was driving across the Dumbarton Bridge. My kids had been caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air! (as per my dream) And I was sitting in my car #shocked!
I am not sure what happened between the Lord and I for Him to finally accept me. Maybe I was saved according to Romans 10:9 That if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
OR maybe……Actually, I would like to come up with another maybe, but the truth of the matter is…there is only ONE way to the Father. There is only ONE way for salvation! And that is thru Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour! (See scripture above)
With that said, i bid you adieu!
As always, prayers for you are welcome ! May God Bless you!
