Ⅰ Corinthians 15:52

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”


There will come a time when the last trumpet shall sound. Many spiritual trumpets have sounded over time, but there will only be one that will sound out for God that will be the last one. In Corinthians, the Apostle Paul tells us that in a moment’s time, in the time it takes to bat an eye, at the sounding of the last Trump the dead in Christ will raise first and we shall be changed.


A trumpet sounding in the Scripture can mean a few different things. Firstly, it can be a call to war, just like in the Old Testament. Secondly, it can mean a call to a feast. Thirdly, it can be a gathering of people. This trumpet in Corinthians denotes a gathering of the Saints. When it sounds the dead shall be changed and then we shall all be “caught away”. Paul is speaking of the same event to comfort those who had lost loved ones in Ⅰ Thessalonians 4:16-18, which we know as the rapture.


Are you waiting for that trumpet? It will definitely not be an uncertain or unfamiliar sound to you as a Believer. You will know what the sounding of that trumpet is, because it is the same Spirit that lays within you that raised Jesus from the dead that will change you also.


Listen for that trumpet, anticipate its sounding. Be waiting and be ready. Someday it will be the last sounding, so don’t miss it.

  

64-0719M - “The Feast Of The Trumpets”

Now notice the trumpets that we're speaking of, is a call together for either a feast, for war, for a person, some sacred day, or something like that. Notice. You say, "For a person?" Yeah. Or, for the year of jubilee, the announcing of the coming of freedom, when they could go back; now, we could take a complete morning on just that one thing. But, now, getting into the trumpets. You got the background now, of the Seals and the Church, now we're going into the trumpet. The trumpet sounded, and the trumpet denotes either war, or a feast day. Or, what it means, is, "a gathering together of the people," the trumpet. Paul said, "When the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who can prepare themselves for war, or for peace, or whatever it is?" Who knows? You have to know what the trumpet sounds. Therefore, when the trumpet sounds, we see something in the earth today. There is a great trouble somewhere. Everybody knows it. Everybody has become a neurotic. The whole world is a neurotical world, and we know there is something wrong. The Pentagon, everywhere, we know there is something wrong. Now, the only way you'll know what the trumpet sound is, is to look what the Music Sheet says. See? That's all. It's a great symphony, see, and beating.
