Greetings friends and new listeners.
Welcome to the sound of faith. I'm sure not thanking you for joining us today because we know that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. I'm still excited about today's message. The last blast I have to tell you it was a blast to preach.
Understanding the significance of blowing the shofar, which is translated trump or trumpet in English Bibles is more than interesting. It's revelatory ancient rabbis taught that Satan hates the sound of the shofar because he can't tell the difference between the blowing of the shofar and God's voice and John confirmed the revelation that God's voice sounds like the blowing of the shofar and one day soon he's going to sound the last blast you know that when God created Lucifer he created him with musical instruments in himself and himself.
Very very phenomenal creature that God made in Lucifer. That's why Satan is still very successful in getting people through music.
It's no wonder that music is is the drama of the masses.
Amen. He gets people through music and you don't have to turn there, but I will read to you a couple verses to show you what I'm talking about. First of all an easy kill.
The 28th chapter it says.
Moreover the word of the Lord came on to be sagging Son of Man to be Ezekiel take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, thus saith the Lord God now Selah stop the sum full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Here's how we know who it is now has been in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was thy covering the sardius, the topaz, the diamond, the barrel of the Onyx, the Jasper, the sapphire, the emerald in the carbuncle, and gold. Here's what I want you to see the workmanship of thy tablets and of thy pipes was prepared in the in the day that was created. He's got tablets and pipes. Pipes or wind instruments you read. Amen.
Okay. And there's another one on Isaiah also is about him and I'll read just one verse there.
Isaiah 14 in verse 11, and here is named Lucifer.
In this chapter, but I'll just read 1411 thy pomp is brought down to the grave and the noise of thy reveals VI OLS. The worm is spread under the and the worms cover the how art thou fallen from heaven a Lucifer, son of the morning.
So when you see he was talking about.
So here we had tablets we have pipes we had deals so we had percussion instruments and we have string instruments. Amen.
But we do not have a trumpet we don't have a horn we don't have a trumpet here. Amen.
That is the one thing that God did not put in Lucifer because God never does that sound for him.
Sound let me tell you what God's voice sounds like, I'll read this to you quickly.
In Revelation 110 John said I was in the spirit of the Lord's day, and I will be boys shofar trumpet Revelation 41.
After I looked and beheld her was opened in heaven, and the noise I heard was it were a trumpet or a shofar talking with me which said come here so God's voice sounds like a shofar. Amen.
And Satan will flee at the sound of that of God's voice. He's going to flee. Amen. The shofar is what God is saying to use to wake up the dead in Christ at the rapture. Amen. Just as John said in 41 voice said, Peter, appear and you know that is what I believe that God is going to say at the rapture and let me just throw this out here after Revelation that from that point on chapter 4.1. There is absolutely no mention of the church. The first three chapters is all about the church. The seven churches in describing the various phases if you will live several little churches. Don't misunderstand me, but they also scribe as we see shortly were in the time of Laodicea. Amen. But here's the point.
From that on one spot, John everything he saw.
After that had nothing to do with the church and we know that the shofar is going to wake up the dead in Christ. Let's turn to him. First Thessalonians 4, you know, this verse well but were going to look at what you see it for yourself. First Thessalonians 4 and verse 16 for the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the shofar that here it says the trump of God, the shofar of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord so comport yourself one another with these words, you cannot give someone is grieving over a loved one who has died in Christ Jesus, more comfort than this.
No matter what else to say to them. This is the most important thing.
Well, when they were going to see him in the air. We're going to happen in error reunion. Amen. First Corinthians 15 verse 51 behold, I show you a mystery, but it's not going to be a mystery from now on, doesn't mean it's unsolvable, it means it's been undercover now on pulling back the cover.
I show you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, and that is a euphemism for death, we shall not all die but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the at the last trumpet at the last blast of the shofar at the last blast of the shofar for the shofar shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. Now I want to ask you a question. What is the last trump the pole was talking about here in his letter to the Corinthians in his letter to the Thessalonians.
By the way, first Thessalonians is the first letter that Paul wrote his very first epistle out of his 14. This was his first one. So we saw that it's called the last trump. Amen.
So what was he talking about the last trump of God. Why didn't he explain what he meant and why did he tell us more about this trump finally tell more, give more detail about it.
The reason he did not give more detail about it is because the Jews knew exactly what he met. If you know if you're talking to someone and you mentioned the fact of what you know they're already very well familiar. You do not have to go in talk all that you just refer to it in your post on the same page, you know, they know what you're talking about is not necessary to go through it all over again so that's basically what we have here and I just heard this last night I was listening to Perry Stone and that also influence me to go ahead and preach this message this morning, but this part.
I just you know learn from him. So why did me because they all ready knew exactly what he meant what he was talking about. Amen we saw that on Rosh Hashanah, we saw that there were 100 blast of the shofar, but do you know they are not all the same sound different sounds. Now if we hear someone using a trumpet played taps in Ghana, when we know what we play therefore okay it started off its military. It started off they played it every day. At the end of the day. The day is gone.
They also play it now. Sometimes it funerals. Amen and simply if we hear taps right away were familiar with that and said what I said reason I referred to. That is because they were not there was not just one trumpet sound.
There were four distinct trumpet sound. In fact, in one of his letters up believe it's Corinthians, Paul was talking about the trumpet and he says if the trumpet blows an unfamiliar sound when you know what it means always busy going to war was was becoming a breakfast one may become the practice, but another one means get your guns were born of our visa so it's important that they might sound at the right time. Amen. This is what he basically was saying and that's because there were four different sounds. Let me go through them for you. The first one was called the Kia and it was a three second sound they blew it and they sustained this down for three seconds. The second one was called Chevron mean and it was only one second, but they blew three short one second. Sounds and each one went up in tone, not can probably do it for you, but like princes you so that's what that one is amen and then the third one was called to Rwanda and it was a series of short, quick blast over three second so it would over three seconds. Amen. And the last one was called to Kia. How did the law to Kia how the go law it was the final sound. It's the one I had you read about in Exodus 19. Amen. When he did it louder and louder and long. Another words they would hold it as long as possible. This is what the Jews knew the last 12 go back to exes are told we were going to come back there.
Go back will be a couple verses we read one Roman read a little more Exodus 19. Let's go back up to verse 16 and it came to pass on the third day in the morning that there were thunders, and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount and the boys of the shofar exceeding lab so that all the people that was in the camp trembled and Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God in the store with another part of the mount. Another words they stood as far away as they could at the bottom of that mount and Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the home is something quite greatly. So God came down in fire that causes huge billows of smoke and the mountain had an earthquake. Verse 19 we read and when the boys of the shofar sounded along and wax louder and louder.
Moses spake and God answered him by voice. This is the term real how the Dola verse 20 and the Lord came down upon Mount Sinai on the top of the mount and the Lord called Moses up to the top of the mount and Moses went up somebody ought to be shouting about now that you why this is trump this is last in the beginning. Women wearing even more leg. I'm not a date setter people but it's more likely that this could occur when the voice of the shofar and long then God's. And when he came home and Moses went up this out there is just a little nugget. It's not the whole picture. I don't have time to preform the rapture but I want to show you why just this alone refutes those who claim that the church is going to go through the first half of the tribulation and will not be rapture till the middle we can see how this is refuted by all this, we just looked at. Here's the theory of the mid-trip people. The church is here for the first three and half years of the tribulation. But there rapture in the middle after 3 1/2 years before the great tribulation because how many know the last three and half years are going to be much worse than even the first three and half years so they say that the church is going to go through the first half and they claim that they're going to be rapture in the middle and the reason for their claim. Is this an revelation which someone had returned to in a moment. There are seven angels who blow seven shofars and every time an angel blows the shofar bad things happen on the earth plagues report out on the earth, but then they claimed that when the seventh angel blows his trumpet. They say that the last trump, and so they say that that using that. That's when the church is going up in Revelation 8.
Revelation 8 wanted to and when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of 1/2 an hour and I saw the seven angels which stood before God and to then were given seven trumpets on the tell you is you backup. Remember in the beginning there was a book with seven seals and John cry because nobody could open it, but the Lamb of God stood up and said I will open the book and he broke the seals and began to open the book and things happened this seal is the seven angels blowing seven trumpets a mentor. That's where we are in the timeline as they blow these trumpet such things as the five horsemen appear in different plagues appear, amen. Let's look at verse six and the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound from here. Verse seven all the way over. Now we got a turn of Revelation Aladdin to verse 15 all the way from where we stopped all the way here is those first six trumpets which you can read on your own if you toe desire because we don't really need to specify that we are looking at the point of the rapture. Looking at Chapter 11 verse 15 and the seventh angel sounded, and there were great voices in heaven say, the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.
And the four and 20 elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell down on their faces and they worshiped God, saying, we give thanks old Lord God Almighty, which art in West and Arctic comps, because thou hast taken to be thy great power, and hast reigned.
Verse 18 and the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come in the time of the dead, and that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give them rewarding that I servicing the property to the saints, and to them that fear thy name calling great and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Now, as I said they claim and they treat people that when the seventh angel blasts the trumpet. That's when the church is going up because first Thessalonians 417 says the last trump first Corinthians 1552, says the last trump, and so they say okay is the last is the last one, so that must mean that there are going to be rapture them. They don't look at the you have to always look at the background. A lot of people at the Leicestershire and I was bringing up his Hebrew stuff while tell you why.
Okay because the Jews understood what the last trump was I just went through all that to show you the last time was the last one that was wrong. The last blast as I like to call it a thought they knew what he meant and people that don't know the things the last trumpet is coming because Paul said the last trump and we can look here and see what that's not doesn't even make any sense, or they say, but he said the kingdoms of this world would become the kingdoms of our Lord did happen) what do we read in verse 18 the nations were angry, and now greater judgment and is going to be poured out on them and are angry because more judgments coming.
This is the prophecy folks in the kingdoms of this become the kingdoms about every man you cannot make it because all these other things a little with the nations and making judgment.
The next three and half years using did not become the kingdoms of our God at the midpoint of the tribulation when this is said it's a prophecy and we know revelation is found with quince always calm and that's what's being said here, the kingdoms of this world going on on earth you're going to get the kingdoms of God is not a and so that is just one little thing on. That's all I would talk about the rapture because is not my message per se today but you that's one answer for the people with mid-trip and beyond that, there are several verses that Smith ethically say in Thessalonians, both of them first and second simply say we are not appointed to wrath, but on the salvation at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ for not appointing the rat that we can go through three and seven years because weight will be and we will be on our honeymoon because in heaven we will be part of those in that city, who make up the bride of Christ, the new Jerusalem. Amen. The bride of Christ. And if you're there you go to be part of it. Amen.
And so we will be in heaven a man and we are not going to be here for any part of it so if you want to go through half of it will be my guest. But I'm not a dummy I listed the wrath to come. Amen. I'm already escaped the wrath to come, eternal damnation, to escape the wrath on this earth. Amen. So let me finish up with this getting back to the blast of the shofar that Satan cannot defendant differentiate between the voice of God and the voice of the shofar and I'm telling you that when the Holy Ghost comes upon us, and we've already received the breath of God, you know, I preach that not too long ago, remember God read I preached about that and you know I always bring this out if I can ever get a chance I will say it's the largest is will say today it's when God created Adam and Eve. Genesis 27 tells us that he formed him out of the dirt. The dust of the ground.
The clay he was beautiful. He was a beautiful sculpture but he was lifeless and dead.
But God breathed into him the breath of life.
It says in your Bible, but they Hebrew says Kylie which is plural and it says God breathed the breath of a lie and man became a living soul weight, to operate in this visible way. We received the payment of 33 and four says the breath of the Almighty has given me. I Hebrew word doc and sometimes times it is rendered. The spirit of God the breath of God. Amen there are almost interchangeable in most cases, amen. So the spirit of God has given us new life were born again on the spirit of God.
Amen. So when God Marines and we are able to do what Jesus said to the woman at the well, and John Fuller. He said the father is. Such as, will worship you in spirit and in truth and in spirit and in truth, you have to have both components.
Amen. Some people confuse on music and beautiful song arrangements and choral arrangements and instruments and great voices on the microphones and to ban that's worship. Well, it may be, but it may not be in spirit, amen and may not be in truth because I don't care if you don't if you're not addressing the right God in the right way. There's only one God Jehovah you got to make sure you're connected to the right guy. Amen. God has a son by the way he has a son, Jesus Christ, amen spirit dwells in us and when we worship in truth were worshiping someone who's worshiping. According to this word that means you can't worship God in truth, if you're living in sin so if you're shacking up with somebody and you're singing on choir you're not worshiping in truth and you're certainly not worshiping in the spirit, amen.
You got to be a clean vessel and then you worship is amen God breathed his own, and when he buried his own sweetener Wireshark and you when you place how many know the difference. You can be standing there singing the song singing all along but something when you kicked in. You know something on the inside takes over. We can sing and worship. I wrote amen we done it we know it. Honestly confess I have to watch it. Sometimes, in my prayer time. I do a lot of singing, worshiping, but when I do a lot of singing. I have to watch it because I know my song so good I can sing my songs. One figured out what happened there. What I'm doing a little while my brain can I can do to track smoke some music. I one track mind. I have at least two tracks.
I think I have more than two because I can do all kinds of things at one time but that's not worshiping the spirit. When I worshiping the spirit all the race all in its embrace and then my thoughts start thoughts in Scripture, thoughts about him again.
I could preach that you write that down so I can preach that or something. I hope God will give me the understanding of it. Amen. Or if I do have a problem that's a natural problem that needs to be addressed. God will give me the answer right then and there. We need to do worshiping God. So just because there are platforms across America today and some quite fancy impressive music does not mean that the worshiping in spirit and in truth and you know what the devil is not trembling. He's not running he's not fleeing. Amen. Not bothering him. But Whitley began to worship God in spirit and in truth, we began to sound like the blast of the shofar, we began to sound like some guy and not that sound can tremble back.
The prophet Isaiah said live like this are.
That's Isaiah 58, one, and you know folks. I know this from experience. That's why believe I'm it's probably true for you as well. When you're in a very severe trial and you have a heavy spirit on you spirit of heaviness and oppression. You have a tendency to clam up.
At least I used to do that shot up and you just go in the room and lay down the fetal position on the bed and you know but it's just like you can't speak is like spiritual lockjaw because there's so much resistance so much heaviness so much oppression on you, but I found out that it's not going to lift until I do something I have to do something.
I can later think about if I got open up my mouth. I have to open it up in the spirit and I got to start somewhere. Maybe we may sound anemic start somewhere, sipping God and then presciently. But waiting for you and once you yield your mouth the Holy Spirit that can begin to flood you and as you begin to worship. Next thing you know the devil is going to be taken.
A hike. Amen. Next thing you know you're going to be looking for the devil that you are not finished telling them off you started on amen I'm finished with Psalm 40 7 o'clock you people every need of his enemies. Amen. The great king do the people in the nation… And I would like this moment due to the Israel and the one that Jesus else to our inheritance.this land. The God. Amen God with our amen. What an exciting, but clarifying message. The last blast. Paul called it the last trump in first Thessalonians in first Corinthians that is going to wake up the dead in Christ who will rise and the living shall be caught up rapture together in the air. Paul was referring to a shofar or ram's horn not a brass trumpet, the shofar had four different sounds that were blown to signify different things, but the final blast was long and loud, and it is what the people heard when God spoke on Mount Sinai because the mountain to quake and the people to tremble. John said in Revelation, God's voice is like the sound of the shofar and the rabbis claimant Satan hates the sound of the shofar because he can't tell the difference between it and God's voice and when he hears it he trembles the last blast explains the fall feast of the Lord, and their correlation to the rapture and the tribulation and refutes the claim that some make the church will be rapture in the middle of the tribulation you want to get this one for your spiritual library.
