A couple of years ago, I posted a video of trumpet sounds coming from the sky, which were occurring in several parts of the world. This is an update, as the sounds are happening much more frequently, especially this month.
First, are these trumpet sounds? In Biblical times they used a shofar, called a trumpet, which is still used today and the sound is nearly identical to those many are hearing. So what does this mean? After much research of many verses in the Bible mentioning trumpets, they were commonly used in celebration, to praise God, or as a warning. In this case, I believe they are a warning from the living God to the entire world, as they are occurring globally.
“Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the Lord is coming, for it is at hand: A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, like the morning clouds spread over the mountains…” (Joel 2:1-2)
So what do we do? A Call to Repentance
“Now, therefore,” says the Lord, “Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” So rend your heart and not your garments; return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm… (Joel 2:12-13)
Instead of being in fear, Jesus loves us so much and desires us to know Him. He suffered in agony for all and wants us to come to Him, who is our Savior. If you don’t know Him, He desires for you to confess your sins, asking for His forgiveness, and turn away from them. And if you have accepted Jesus, but have fallen away, He longs for you to return to Him. Repentance occurs daily, not just once in a lifetime. He wants us to have repentant hearts, so that we come to Him, asking for His strength to overcome and He will help.
As Jesus promises, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8) Thank You, Jesus.
