Listen for the Trumpet of God!


Listen to this blog.

On the Lord’s day the Spirit took control of me, and behind me I heard a loud voice that sounded like a trumpet. The voice said, “Write in a book what you see. Then send it to the seven churches in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.”

Revelation 1:10-11

If an alien from some other planet landed in your yard today and approached you with the well known request, that I suppose all aliens know to ask, "TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER," to whom would you take him? In today's world I'm not sure I know who the leader that is in control is. In a country when there is no well defined and respected leader chaos is certainly not far away.

As a Christian, there is no chaos. Your life is led by and in the control of the Holy Spirit! Like John in the Book of Revelation when you are controlled by the Holy Spirit you always hear the trumpet. The earliest use of trumpets was not for making music, but for signaling directions in war. Trumpeters were the most protected members of the troop because without the trumpeter the soldiers did not know what the next move would be.

Soldiers in the army of God listen for the trumpet sound from the Holy Spirit. If you are a follower of Jesus and are alert, you probably have noticed that Christians around the world seem to be hearing the same trumpet blast.

Today when you hear the trumpet of God remember that it is sounded for your instruction and direction not your entertainment!

Let your "quiet time" today be a time of listening for the sound of the trumpet so you will know for certain which way to go!
