Hearing the Trumpet Within
The sound of the trumpet has always held great significance for God’s people.
On the Feast of Trumpets, the trumpet signals both the alarm of war and the shouting of joy. It signals great joy over the fact that Christ has returned in power and glory to begin ruling all the nations of the earth, as well as signaling the resurrection of God’s saints to immortal life.
But before the saints can be raised to immortality, they each have a war, an internal one, to finish. It is a war in which we cannot accept defeat. And we won’t, if the sound of the trumpet is ringing in our ears.
