The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) begins at sundown October 2!  It signals the beginning of the new season.  It is a time to position yourself by faith for that which is coming.

Faith is (Amplified Version)

“Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses],”   Hebrews 11:1.


The Feast of Trumpets (beginning or head of the year) is a time when there is an unfolding revelation for the season.

It is a time when spiritual information comes to direct us both personally and corporately.  It is a set time in which God positions us to be equipped for the season that we are now entering into.

“You will arise and have mercy on Zion;  For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come,”   Psalms 102:13.

Small Straws (September 22, 2016):

“Come close to Me, says the Lord, and I will speak to your heart.  I will direct you to where you need to go and what you need to do.  Let Me be your navigator.  I will warn you when you are getting off track and steer you back to the correct course.  But, you must trust Me and allow My intervention into your life.  Quiet your soul, and let Me lead.”

Proverbs 3:6 “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

I will speak to you, so ask!

“Thus says the LORD, The Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: “Ask Me of things to come concerning My sons; and concerning the work of My hands, you command Me,”   Isaiah 45:11.  

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you,”   Matthew 7:7.

It Is A New Season


The Trumpet  (September 3, 2016):

“Many of My people have been discouraged because they have not arrived at the place of understanding and power that they thought they would. But, the Lord says today, do not allow discouragement to hinder you any longer, but rise up in a new faith. For, indeed it is a new season and a new day. And, My mercy and goodness are renewed and will come upon you in a fresh way. Allow My Spirit, to wash away the disappointment, the discouragement, and the disheartenment.”

Hosea 6:1-3   “Come, and let us return to the LORD; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight. Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth.”

We (Faith Tabernacle of Kremmling) are finishing 30 years of ministry on this Feast of Trumpets. 

Thirty (3 x10) denotes in a higher degree the perfection of divine order, as marking the right moment.  Jesus was 30 years of age at the beginning of His ministry.

This Trumpet word denotes the beginning of a new season in the power of Christ.  When divine order has been established, then God has full control over His people.  Traditional and religious order ceases, and God’s order is established.

This is also established by the Hebrew Calendar.

The Year 5777

Three sevens:

The number 7 is the number of completion and perfection and is found in the upcoming year of 2017.

In Luke 3:23-38, in the genealogy of Jesus Christ, He is number 77 from Adam.  Again, the number 7 is identifying this season of completion and perfection.

In this year genealogy will play a significant role in our lives spiritually in generational blessings.

In this coming season these sevens identify a greater manifestation of unity with Christ in our personal relationships.

Seven Spirits

“And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God,”   Revelation 4:5.

  • The Spirit of Life   (Romans 8:2)
  • The Spirit of Truth   (John 14:17)
  • The Spirit of Deliverance  (Matthew 12:28)
  • The Spirit of Wisdom   (Ephesians 1:7)
  • The Spirit of Prayer   (Romans 8:2)
  • The Spirit of Justification   (1 Corinthians 6:11)
  • The Spirit of Sanctification   (2 Thessalonians 2:13)

The seven-fold armor of God

  • Helmet of salvation  (Ephesians 6)
  • Belt of Truth
  • Shield of Faith
  • Belt of Righteousness
  • Shoes of Peace
  • Sword of the Spirit
  • Armor of Light   (Nature of Christ — Romans 13:12)

There will be an amplification of these three sevens because they will be covered by God’s grace.

God’s empowerment

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God,”   Romans 5:1-2.

Unusual Signs will be given in this season, which will help us identify what God is doing.

“Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; Before they spring forth I tell you of them,”  Isaiah 42:9.

“I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known.  I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places straight.  These things I will do for them, And not forsake them,”  Isaiah 42:16.

In same area where we saw the 4 rainbows (halos) around the sun in four consecutive weeks in February, we saw another sign on September 7th.

Two mountain lions — on a road trip we saw one lying down and one just getting up and stretching.

“But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep.  Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals,”   Revelation 5:5.

What does this sign represent?  Jesus arising to lead us into this season!

“After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this,”   Revelation 4:1.

I will show you!

“Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.  The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle,”   Revelation 4:6-7.

Verse 7:  These living creatures identify the nature of Jesus Christ and His ability (eyes to see) with us following!  The first aspect of Christ’s work among and in His people is that of the image of the lion (apostolic nature).  Again, the sign was two lions representing Jesus and us.

The First Lion:   We saw was years ago when we lived on Gore Pass.

Message:  Follow Me.

The Second Lion:   Was one that Marsha saw in the alley behind our house in Kremmling.

Message:  I AM here.

The Two Lions:   We saw in a field on the way to Granby.

Message:  Come walk with Me and be beside Me.

A Season of the Lion

“Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.  But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord,”   2 Corinthians 3:17-18.

Three-fold cords being given for this season:

  • Apostolic power for warfare
  • Apostolic vision for direction
  • Apostolic revelation for understanding
  • The rising of Christ to lead
  • The coming of angelic help
  • The empowerment of God’s people

This is what God wants you to understand, and He wants you to be as strong and as bold as the Lion.

Come, and follow Him, the Lion of Judah!
