GOD is so good, and far BETTER than we can ever imagine or need Him to be.
He is SOOO GOOD that He even turns evil to good. He used the sin of man as an opportunity to make redeemed man incorruptible — so that “as we have borne the image of the man of dust we shall also bear The Image of The Heavenly Man.” (1 Corinthians 15:49).
And the new man will dwell in the new heavens and the new earth which will be far more GLORIOUS than the first.
Furthermore, we shall see the new universe being created LIVE by THE LORD.
( The angels saw the first heavens and earth being created by GOD, (Job 38:4-7). WE His children and heirs shall see the new and better universe being created live; “we look for” them, that is, we look forward to them created, and then forever enjoyed by us, (2 Peter 3:13).
WE the new creation will see the creation being created new, (Romans 8:18-23). PRAISE THE LORD!
And then, like passengers in a brand new vehicle from the showroom, we will be conveyed in The Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from GOD and established in the newly created earth, (Revelation 21:1-5). Oh, Hallelu-YAH!
Have you ever had a house move? We will have the one and only City move — both the infrastructure and the people.)
SO, Adam messed up terribly, but GOD has turned it into good WONDERFULLY!
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love GOD, to those who are the called according to His Purpose.” Romans 8:28.
Paul shares the revelation further (regarding both this life and the world to come):
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of Glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18.
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with The Glory which shall be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18.
Therefore, whatever affliction or trouble we may have or have had (whether of our own making or not), GOD WILL work it out for our good if we let Him (by repentance, prayers and supplications, seeking THE LORD all the while for His Will and Direction).
This is one of the many Ways of GOD: He turns trouble to triumph, sorrow to joy, grief to Glory, affliction to affection.
“Oh, the depth of The Riches both of The Wisdom and Knowledge of GOD! How unsearchable are His Judgments and His Ways past finding out!” Romans 11:33.
GOD uses trouble to give us treasure, (Matthew 5:11, 12). GOD uses trouble to give us triumph.
Hosea calls it The Valley of Achor as a door of hope. (Hosea 2:15).
The Valley of Achor refers to when and where Israel, after bringing down the walls of mighty Jericho, had a shock defeat to the tiny city of Ai because of Achan’s sin of taking “the accursed things” from Jericho into the camp in blatant disobedience of The Commandment of THE LORD.
But when they rapidly repented and followed THE LORD’s Instructions, they had one of the most spectacularly dramatic and easiest victories in warfare (Please see Joshua 7 and 8).
Achor means “trouble”. With repentance and obedience, (following His Instructions), THE LORD can turn your trouble into TRIUMPH!
THE LORD JESUS will come through for you as THE very present Help in trouble if you seek Him diligently, if you entirely depended on THE HOLY SPIRIT to lead, direct and guide you out of it. ( I’m speaking from repeated revelation and personal experience of years. )
BLOW the trumpet and bid JESUS to come
The Feast of Trumpets (popularly called Rosh Hashanah) starts this evening (6 September) and ends on 8 September in the evening.
This Feast of THE LORD celebrates The Coming of our LORD JESUS CHRIST to take us Home forever out of the troubles of this world, (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
Furthermore, while we wait for that day soon, when we celebrate this Feast, when we literally blow the trumpet, we bid THE LORD to currently come and take us out of troubles we may be in: family, financial, ministry, career, health and other troubles.
I assure you, I speak as an apostle of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, yes, a prophet of The Living GOD, if you do this in faith with repentance and thanksgiving, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST will come through for you! Hallelu-YAH! Hallelu-YAH! (Please study Acts 3:19-21).
Do this and you will have your Valley of Achor as A Door of Hope.
“Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in THE LORD your GOD, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” 2 Chronicles 20:20.
Please, this is a very holy teaching you must not despise.
In Numbers 10:8, priests were tasked with blowing the trumpet. We in CHRIST JESUS are priests, (Revelation 1:5-6).
Now look at what THE HOLY SPIRIT says:
“When you go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, and you will be remembered before THE LORD your GOD, and you will be saved from your enemies. Also in the day of your gladness, in your appointed Feasts, and at the beginning of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; and they shall be a memorial for you before your GOD: I AM THE LORD your GOD.” Numbers 10:9-10.
THIS IS HUGE AND EXCITING!
THE LORD says “When you go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresses you.” Oh, ARE WE at war against the enemy in this hour! And who relentlessly oppresses many!
And then THE LORD further says: “then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, and you will be remembered before THE LORD your GOD, and you will be saved from your enemies“. What a promise! What a blessed assurance!
GOD says if you blow the trumpet (literally), you WILL be remembered before Him, and be delivered from your enemies, out of your troubles!
Finally, in verse 10 above, THE LORD says when you blow the trumpet in celebrating The Feasts of THE LORD over the offerings and sacrifices (this signifies The Offering and Sacrifice of CHRIST), “they shall be a memorial for you before your GOD: I AM THE LORD your GOD.”
In Scripture, when one’s GODly endeavours come for a memorial before GOD, He sends angels to assist with what one urgently needs.
Cornelius had this testimony:
“There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, a devout man and one who feared GOD with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to GOD always. About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of GOD coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius!” And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, “What is it, lord?” So he said to him, “Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before GOD.” Acts 10:1-4.
Blowing the trumpet before THE LORD over sacrifices of thanksgiving and praise for The Offering and Sacrifice of CHRIST “shall be a memorial for you before your GOD” and will get Him to rapidly respond and deliver you.
Therefore, as commanded by THE LORD in Leviticus 23:23-25, ensure to have “a memorial of blowing of Trumpets”, meet as a family or church and “sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving” (Psalm 107:22) to GOD for “The Offering of The Body of JESUS CHRIST once for all.” For “CHRIST also has loved us and given Himself for us, an Offering and a Sacrifice to GOD for a sweet-smelling aroma.” Yes, “an acceptable Sacrifice well-pleasing to GOD.” (Hebrews 10:10; Ephesians 5:2; Philippians 4:18).
If you can’t get a ram’s horn from the shop, you can just roll a sheet of paper and give a blast of trumpet with your voice through it. And THE LORD JESUS will swoop in to deliver you out of your troubles.
Do this with repentance, thanksgiving and praise. BLOW the trumpet 🎺 for THE LORD! And He will come through for you. Amen.
( Please watch this video for the basics of blowing the Shofar ):
Joyful and fervently, pray (out loud) the following Scriptures: Psalms 107; 116; 117; 118; and 136. (I pray them everyday; I LOVE to thank GOD exceedingly; it highly pleases Him to do so).
If you are reading this belatedly, still do the above as instructed.
May THE LORD make your Valley of Achor a Door of Hope exactly as His Word says below regarding The New Covenant in The Blood of JESUS. Immediately. Amen.
May GOD have mercy on you and provide what you need.
“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, Will bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfort to her. I will give her her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt. “And it shall be, in that day,” says THE LORD, “That you will call Me ‘My Husband,’ and no longer call Me ‘My Master,’ for I will take from her mouth the names of the baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more. In that day I will make a Covenant for them with the beasts of the field, with the birds of the air, and with the creeping things of the ground. Bow and sword of battle I will shatter from the earth, to make them lie down safely. “I will betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me In righteousness and justice, In lovingkindness and mercy; I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, and you shall know THE LORD. “It shall come to pass in that day That I will answer,” says THE LORD; “I will answer the heavens, and they shall answer the earth. The earth shall answer with grain, with new wine, and with oil; they shall answer Jezreel [which means “GOD will sow”]. Then I will sow her for Myself in the earth, and I will have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy; then I will say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people!’ and they shall say, ‘You are my GOD!’ ” Hosea 2:14-23 emphasis added.
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.

Jacob, an apostle of Jesus Christ by The Will of God, according to The Promise of Life which is in Christ Jesus, (2 Timothy 1:1).
As John was, Jacob is the disciple whom JESUS loves, (John 13:23;19:26; 20:2; 21:7,20). And like Paul, Jacob is “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
“And having been perfected, He became The Author of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9.
