  1. A wonderful and encouraging word for the body of Christ; for those who have ears to hear and faith to walk and declare His Truth.  Thank you for sharing; to God be the glory! :)

  2. Thanks for sharing this.

    I was looking at Rev 4:1 earlier this morning. I learned the greek word for “Trumpet”

    HELPS Word-studies
    4536 sálpigks – “properly, a war-trumpet” (WS, 797) that boldly announces God’s victory (the vanquishing of His enemies).

    In the OT, trumpets were used to called God’s people to war, and to announce victory wrought by Him. That is, a military clarion that proclaimed the Lord inspired and empowered the victory on behalf of His people.

    [“The trumpet was the signal employed to call the hosts of Israel to march as to war, and is common in prophetic imagery (Is 27:13). Cf. The seventh angel (Rev 11:15)” (WP, 1, 193).

    Trumpets in the OT summoned God’s saints for His righteous wars (Nu 10:9; Jer 4:19; Joel 2:1). See also Lev 23:24,25; Nu 10:2-10; Ps 81:3.]

    What you shared also added another layer of understanding, for me, to:

    Ezekiel 1

    15 Now as I looked at the living beings, behold, there was one wheel on the earth beside the living beings, for each of the four of them.
    16 The appearance of the wheels and their workmanship was like sparkling beryl, and all four of them had the same form, their appearance and workmanship being as if one wheel were within another.
    17 Whenever they moved, they moved in any of their four directions without turning as they moved.
    18 As for their rims they were lofty and awesome, and the rims of all four of them were full of eyes round about.
    19 Whenever the living beings moved, the wheels moved with them. And whenever the living beings rose from the earth, the wheels rose also.
    20 Wherever the spirit was about to go, they would go in that direction. And the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.
    21 Whenever those went, these went; and whenever those stood still, these stood still. And whenever those rose from the earth, the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.
