Blow the Trumpet – The Tribulation is Near
“Blow ye 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 cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness…” – (Joel 2:1,2).
“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come” – (Joel ,31).
“Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry unto the Lord” – (Joel 2:15 – 1:14).
As God’s Bible Watchman, I blow the trumpet
of warning and sound the alarm. God’s judgment is about to fall upon
God will judge U.S. for our blasphemy, for
our violence, for our crimes, for our backsliding from a godly Pilgrim
heritage, for our murdering of millions of babies by abortion, for our adultery
and fornication, for our corruption, for our drunkenness and drug abuse, for
our rampant divorce, for our lewd pornography, for our child molestations, for
our cheatings, for our robbings, for our filthy books and movies and TV, for
our Harry Potter sorcery, for our covetousness and greed, for our rebellious
children, and especially for our flaunting of sodomy and sodomite marriage,
because God has set forth Sodom as our example of the fiery wrath of God. “And turning the cities of
“Behold, the day of the Lord
cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and
he shall destroy the sinners out of it. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and
the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and
in the day of his fierce anger. And
In one hour the fiery, nuclear missiles will
come flying toward us from over Alaska and from beneath the sea in submarines
and cover our land and it will be a day of poisonous, nuclear mushroom clouds
and the sun shall be turned into a fiery red darkness. God will wrench ‘the
flaming torch’ from the hand of the stature of liberty and give
“…and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness (our first ‘a-bomb-a-nation’ was called ‘Fat Man’). For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance… And the steams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch (pitchblend comes from uranium that made A-bombs). It shall not be quenched might or day; the smoke thereof shall go up forever… There shall the great owl make her nest… there shall the vultures also be gathered…” – (Is.34:7-15).
“The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hastest greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord… The day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness. A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers” – (Zeph.1:14-16). We have had a small taste of this on 9/11 when the flying terrorists destroyed our two high towers in N.Y. God, in His mercy, was trying to get U.S. to repent of our sins, and He was showing us how easy and fast our vaunted military could fall and that’s why our Pentagon, the symbol of our military, also was hit that day. “And I will bring distress upon men, they shall walk as blind men…” – (blind from the flash of nuclear bombs and the blindness of their hearts). “But the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy…”- (Zeph.1:17,18). And construction ‘cranes’ are back on the twin towers site in N.Y. to build more Babylonian towers.
“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up… Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord” – (Mal.4:1,5). And God will send his Two Witnesses with the spirit and power of Elijah just before the great tribulation, which is very soon – (Rev.11). These two watchmen will blow the trumpet of warning loud and clear.
“Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord came upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you” – (Zeph.2:2). John the Baptist said – “Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire” – (Mt.3:12). Are you a saved wheat or an unsaved chaff? The lake of fire, the second death, is where the chaff spends eternity – (Rev.20:15).
Peter on the day of Pentecost and the birthday of the church, prophesied of these end day of the church – “And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke: the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come” – (Acts 2:19,20).
Paul wrote that that great day comes unexpectedly – “… the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the might. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” – (I Th.5:2,3). God’s vengeance for abortion – amen.
Peter also writes about this great day – “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” – (2 Pet.3:10). When the H-Bombs explode, the elements (uranium, plutonium, tritium, etc.) melt with a fervent heat.
John tells us that this great and terrible day is Armageddon – “…to gather them to the battle of the great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth… And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon” – (Rev.16:14-16). Are you saved? Are you watching? Are you listening to this watchman? Will you hear the voice of the trumpet?
I’m blowing the trumpet in
If you’re not saved and born again then repent of your sins and believe on Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and become a new born again creature in Christ. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” – (2 Cor.5:17). Jesus said – “That which is born of the flesh if flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:6,7). Born again describes what happens to you when you’ve truly saved. The old man dies with Christ on the cross and you become a new holy man with a new heart and a new Holy Spirit indwelling you and you walk in new, godly paths with your feet.
And then you can wait for the rapture trumpet from God instead of His trumpet judgments of wrath – (Rev.8-9). “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: 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” – (I Th.4:16,17). A saved person is saved from the wrath of God – “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” – (I Th.5:9).
