The Sounding Trumpet
Dear friends and fellow servants of the living God Almighty, wherever you are in this world, there is an urgent trumpet sounding both warning of extreme battles and proclaiming great victory.
Please make the time no matter what the cost to prayerfully give your undivided attention to hear what God will say to you in this season. Set aside time and if needed to print this booklet out to prayerfully consider what God might be saying to all of us by His Spirit.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Messiah, we worship you and give you glory. We petition You to help us to open our ears to hear and our eyes to see what You are saying to Your people on earth in this day that has come upon us.
We humbly repent for any remaining wicked ways and turn to you with our whole hearts. Heal us, Oh God, and heal our land, we pray. Amen!
The world is in desperate imminent need of the kingdom of God to rule in our lives and our world. Nothing we have ever seen before compares to the spiritual reality that God has prepared for those who love Him. It is more than we could ask or think.
“But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God,” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
One King and One Kingdom
There is one legitimate King and Kingdom of all creation including Planet Earth.
There is also one rebellious illegitimate prince and principality striving to become the king of the kingdom.
On Planet Earth, mankind is the determining factor as to whether the legitimate King or the rebellious illegitimate prince rules on the planet. It is obvious that the one true King of all creation is much stronger than the rebellious principality.
However, the one true King/God who cannot lie and stands by His word forever has by His word given mankind dominion on Planet Earth, (Genesis 1:26).
Mankind has the God-given ability and therefore responsibility to decide to obey God and line up with God’s Kingdom or to obey Satan and line up with his principality against God and His Kingdom, (Romans 6:16).
Whichever mankind decides to obey, determines the rule and pattern of life on earth, (Matthew 18:18-19).
The kingdom and the principality are spiritual realities that rule and pattern natural life on Planet Earth. All rule and patterns of life on earth have their source in either the kingdom of God or the principality of Satan.
The personification of the Kingdom of God is the Son of God / Son of man, Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah now present on Planet Earth in the Holy Spirit of God raising up many Sons of God in Christ and in whom Christ Jesus now abides.
The personification of the principality of Satan is the anti-Christ sons of Satan. Jesus referred to the religious Pharisees as of their father the devil/Satan, (John 8:43.45).
Light and Darkness
To not be in the light is to be in darkness. To be in the light is to be out of the darkness.
The people in whom Christ dwells are the light of the world. God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. The Kingdom of God is light, (Matthew 5:14, John 8:12, 1 John 1:5).
Darkness on the other hand is the current default position of the world because it is the condition of Adamic mankind without Christ. Where the light is not shining, the darkness remains. The principality of Satan is darkness and the true light is not in it. When light is released darkness is overcome and disappears.
Every living mature person in the world is identified with either the kingdom of God or the principality of Satan. The default position is that of being identified with the principality of Satan, the devil and the anti-Christ.
To not receive Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit as Savior, Lord, and King is to remain identified with the rebellious principality of darkness, (Romans 3:23, 5:12, 1 Corinthians 15:22).
There is no other choice. Although mankind has tried to create a third category of neutral or secular, which is an attempt to be neither godly nor ungodly and to tolerate all human beliefs including darkness. Much of the world is about to realize that behind the facade of their godless secularism is the devil and his anti-Christ pulling all the strings of their deceived life of puppetry.
The great war of darkness and light battling for the kingship of Planet Earth is not won or lost by human strength and natural force or the lack of it. Neither is it won or lost in the ballot boxes or parliaments or the courts of this world, (Ephesians 6:10-12).
The things of the world are governed by what the people believe.
What do people believe? A normal natural human being is born with the world’s most valuable tools: a human brain and spirit. The mind of a child is like a very powerful computer with massive capacity to receive, assimilate, and understand with reason huge amounts of thoughts and patterns.
What people believe is whatever is programmed into their minds from an early age onward. An entire culture or nation can be changed in one generation by changing what the people hear and see.
What they are taught or how they are trained becomes who and how they are in their lives. The human brain will believe as truth what it hears repeatedly especially from a respected source. Whether it is truth or lie, whether it is darkness or light, it will be seen as reality and truth by the mind and will become the beliefs of the person, (Colossians 3:2, Philippians 4:8, Matthew 13:23, Mark 4:26-29).
And remember it is these same human beings who determine, by what they believe, whether the world will be ruled by the Kingdom of God or the principality of Satan. God is love, and His Kingdom flows from His love.
The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, (Romans 14:17). The principality of Satan is always the complete opposite.
God’s gifts are without repentance.
In other words, the God-given abilities of a person are not always taken from them because they are used in a wrong way to serve the wrong master. However, a person misusing the gifts of God will not usually have a long life, and the gifts will not usually be given to the next generations of those who misuse the gifts of God.
America and other Christian nations of the world were called and gifted to bring forth the real Kingdom of God on earth. However, because of secularism and compromised religious systems, they have, like Esau, forfeited their birthright. This has led to a greatly hindered movement from the dark ages into the kingdom age.
The separation of God and government under the guise of secularism opened the way for higher education to be infiltrated with anti-Christ teachings that prepared a generation of educators, journalist, ministers, and other influential people to train the leaders of the people in darkness, teaching that darkness is light and that the light of God is darkness that comes from ignorance and superstitions of past generations.
This allowed very evil spirits and concepts of darkness to infiltrate and take control in the people and brought forth the principality of Satan as the god of the masses of people. In recent generations media greatly multiplied and became a major factor in propagating the works of darkness filling the hearts of the people and infecting the world.
Can This Evil Process Be Stopped?
With man it may not be possible. However, what is impossible with man is fully possible with God, (Matthew 19:26).
There is not time enough for education, journalism, mass media, religious systems, governments, and all other works that affect what the people believe to be retrained through natural means. Before natural retraining could be accomplished, the world would be plunged again into dark ages more vile than before. The answer is not gradually pushing back the darkness here a little and there a little, line upon line and precept upon precept.
That which I am about to write is the truth of God completely in accordance with the written word of God. However, it is directly opposed by some of what we may have been taught through notable and supposedly reliable trusted theological teachers of the past compromised church systems. Please bear in mind that what we have believed has brought us to where we are now.
Only God can change the polarity of what we believe in an instant.
Only the presence of Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah can bring great massive sudden change to this world. The minds and hearts of the massive remnant of people who truly are seeking God can be instantly changed like a bolt of lightning in the manifest presence of Christ Jesus, Messiah Yeshua.
Also keep in mind that there is NO NATURAL solution that will fix the world condition.
Only the coming of the glorified Son of God can call forth all of the chosen people of God under one banner, one Lord, and one King on earth. There is no other name and no other man or group of men who can and will save our world, (Acts 4:12).
Now here is the truth, here is the key that fulfills prophecy of the coming of Christ, Messiah in full accordance with the Old and New Testament promises of God.
Father God Jehovah known by His many names is SPIRIT, (John 4:24). All that is seen with the natural eye was made by that which is unseen, SPIRIT GOD, (Hebrews 11:3). Spirit was before the natural and is greater than the natural. SPIRIT God is eternal. Created things that are seen are temporal, (2 Corinthians 4:18).
God the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost are ONE GOD, (Mark 4:29, Ephesians 4:4). A ll three were together as one in heaven before the earth was created and participated in the creation of the world and mankind, (Genesis 1:26, Matthew 28:19).
Please say this out loud until it is fixed in your mind: Spirit is greater than natural. Spirit that is unseen with natural eyes is GREATER than the natural which is seen with natural eyes.
Jesus, Yeshua was SPIRIT in and with GOD in heaven before he came to earth born of a virgin in the body of a human being, (John 1:1-4,10,14). The same Spirit Son God who participated in the creation came to earth and took on the body of a man to redeem the world. The same world that Spirit God so loved, (John 3:16). After He endured the cross, He was resurrected and ascended to the throne in heaven.
As Jesus had promised and instructed His disciples, He returned to them in the Holy Spirit at Pentecost to indwell His people and empower them to do the works that He did and even greater works, (John 14:12, 28).
“The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you,” John 14:17-20.
Read this passage again slowly and think about it. Jesus was speaking of the Holy Spirit. Who is the truth? Jesus is the way, the TRUTH, and the life, (John 14:6). The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth, is the Spirit of Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah.
Spirit is Greater than Natural.
Is it better for us to have Jesus in a natural body before us or to have Spirit Jesus within us? Actually we now have Christ in us by the Holy Spirit and before us in His body of believing sons and daughters in whom He dwells.
Jesus said that it was better for His disciples that He go away and come back to them, (John 16:7). It is better that He came back to them to abide in them.
Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah now dwells within the hearts and lives of those who receive Him as Spirit God. And when we gather in the Spirit and believe, Christ Jesus manifests among us along with holy angels, (Matthew 18:20, Hebrews 12:22-24).
The Lightning Flash Awakening of the Manifesting (Coming) of Christ.
From the east to the west, a great sustained flash of Spirit lightning is the revealing or the manifesting of Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah, (Matthew 24:26-28, Luke 17:22-24) “For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day,” Luke 17:24.
The “manifest sons of God” are the people who in a burst of Spirit light see the reality of Christ in them and in whom Christ Jesus manifests His life unto the world. Christ Jesus Himself is Head of the body of Christ on earth and the true King of the world, (Colossians 1:18).
We are the sons of God in whom Christ dwells. We are now spirit beings in earthly bodies. Our spirits become one with His Spirit changing us to mature Sons of God. We are changed at the last trump of the trumpet in a moment in the twinkling of an eye. (Check out this passage in Strong’s Concordance – 1 Corinthians 15:50-55).
“Now this I say, brethren that flesh (carnality) and blood (shed) cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all (truly or certainly) sleep, but we shall all be changed — in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead (spiritually dead) will be raised (arise, awaken) incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” 1 Corinthians 15:50-55.
We put on Jesus the incorruptible immortal.
When believers receive the revelation light that the glory and power of God in Christ dwells in us, the lightning flash explosion will fill the world with the pure holy love, righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, and the world will press into the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. We will stop standing idle watching the eastern sky and come to life with the life of God that Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah, has provided.
The lightning flash is the revealing of Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah. The nation that is born in a day is the kingdom of God. The “dry bones” are coming to life. The visible Christ Messiah is revealed from heaven on earth in the unified Spirit Body of Christ fully connected to the HEAD of His Body.
The great tribulation of apocalyptic cataclysmic events that cleanses the earth of all that is not of God both in His people and in the entire world is directly related to the manifesting (coming) of Christ, Messiah to rule and reign on earth as it is in heaven.
If you can receive this now, you have probably passed through a death experience of tribulation and are a first fruits of this great transformation from religion to the true relationship of oneness with God in Christ by the SPIRIT.
If you cannot yet receive this, it does NOT mean that you don’t love God or that you will miss out on anything that He has for you. Yet you may endure extreme changes in your natural life and situations that will only assist you into a greater fullness of the reality of CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY. God loves all of His children.
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you,” Isaiah 60:1-2.
Study the Bible for what it really says by the light of the Spirit of God who wrote it to see if these things be true.
Much love and blessings in the precious name of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Messiah,
Be made whole in His love,
