Time Of Christ: The Voice Of The Trumpet

Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris

Matthew 24:21-31 KJV
(21) For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
(22) And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
(23) Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
(24) For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
(25) Behold, I have told you before.
(26) Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
(27) For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
(28) For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
(29) Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
(30) And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
(31) And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other

Many false Christ come in the name of the Lord. Some will declare themselves as the Messiah and/or God. The day you see the declaration of a man other then the Messiah declaring he is a God or Messiah is the day that you understand the devil is truly loose in our world. A world of humanís trying to play God. Even using magician tricks to deceive and Godís people are not blind to the antiques of the devil and antichrists of our world. Even if naÔve to the ways of devil Godís elect will not be deceived. Even if they fall prey to the antichrist for a moment it is not going to last. God is not going to leave his people blinded to the devil. In fact God wants to educate his followers, by teaching them his voice so they know Him and His ways. If we learn to listen to the voice of God the voice of the enemy will be obvious to the believer.

God will send his messengers to gather his people from the four corners of world at the second coming of Christ. The angels are the gathers but they are not God. They gather the saints with the sounding of the trumpet the voice of God. At the time of Christ death on the cross was eclipse of the sun. When Christís returns there will be eclipse again. Some might ask his this a physical eclipse or a spiritual eclipse, and I think it possible for both. For the devil must rise before Christís return. The believers heart might mourn during this time, but it something that must occur. He is released for seven years, before being locked away for eternity. Does man still have the ability to sin even without the devil around. One needs to think when does the responsibility of man comes into play, verses the reality of the devil made me do it. Eve created in a world of perfection and from Adamís rib, a rib not from the world of heaven. It something to think on, was Eveís sin, her own doing, or the serpent. Serpent only tempted, Eve had to take responsibility for picking and eating the fruit.

The point is we do not always follow Godís voice as long as their more then one voice to hear we will be tempted to listen to the world around us and not always God. You know that Sunday morning sitting on the pew and your mind wonders to what you plan to do that evening and not listening to Godís word being read. It is simple to be sidetracked from God, and even your family. Yet the truth of the matter Godís sheep will hear Godís voice, his word and know it is Him as long as they follow. It is that same voice that will call you to meet His Son in the sky. It is that same voice that leads you homeward bound and keeps your feet from slipping. The devil will always try and deceive you. God will always have victory and His Word will be victorious in a world that both man and the beast was created in.

The other day sitting outside on the porch the cat began to holler so loudly as if you would think someone was killing him, but all he wanted was outside or to know I was around. Yet the more I ignored him the louder he got. God voice is the sound of the trumpet, and yet his voice can be quiet and still. Cat rubbing oneís legs and softly purring is the same effect of the meow. All done to get attention. God knows how to get his children to listen to him. The sheep might seem like dumb animals going to the slaughter to the world, but the truth of the matter they are wise because they hear the voice of God. The antichrist can only bring deception but it will not deceive the elect on whose voice is being heard. Listen closely as a believer what do you hear around you.

Dear Heavenly Father may your voice be clear to your children, as still and quiet, and as loud as a trumpet. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
