1 Corinthians 14:8

“For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?”


There had to be a time in every Christian's life when someone spoke to you about the things of God. There was that initial contact that, when you heard the truth, your faith just picked up on something true. It didn’t seem wrong or confusing, it just fit. That was the voice of God ringing out to you. Maybe you just grew up hearing the voice of God through your parents, your church family, or whoever it was, but it just seemed so right. There is nothing abnormal about it in your heart, the Word of God is a perfect fit. That is you hearing the voice of God that is speaking to you.


The world criticizes and mocks, but deep down in your heart, you know the Message is right. That is a “certain” sound. The mighty trumpet of God rang out in the air around you, and you recognized something familiar and true. God would not shout out His Message to His elect with an unfamiliar or confusing sound. God wants you to recognize His voice, He wants you to recognize Christ, and so He sounds out the trumpet to the Elect with a certain, recognizable, and familiar sound.


Listen for that trumpet. The voice of God can say all kinds of things, like when to move, when to get another job, when to stop, or when to rapture. Listen to it in everything that you are involved in. The voice of God will always make itself known to you. Be certain it is God. Listen for His voice.

He knows that he was ordained, he was in the Gospel Truth. He knowed that he was born by the Spirit of God. He knows that the Spirit of God cannot deny the Word of God, so therefore a stranger he will not follow. Notice how…
