- Jeremiah 4:19 "My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart
maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard oh my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war"
I am in a spiritual warfare. Freewill of man doctrine believers hate the truth of God, therefore they are against God's
chosen people. But this is not my fight, I am just an instrument in God's hand and His truth is my shield and buckler.
The sound of the trumpet is this: "SALVATION IS OF THE LORD"
Psalm 27:1-3 "1 The LORD my light
and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked, mine
enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.3 Though an host encamp against me, my heart
shall not fear: though war rise against me, in this I confident.
Exodus 15:3 "The LORD [is] a man of war:
the LORD [is] his name"
Deuteronomy 3:22 "Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for
Deuteronomy 20:4 "For the LORD your God [is] he that goeth with you,
to fight for you against your enemies, to save you"
Joshua 10:25 "And Joshua
said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage: for thus shall the LORD
do to all your enemies against whom ye fight"
Joshua or Jehoshua = "Jehovah
Jesus = "Jehovah is salvation"
Psalm 8:34 "He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms"
Psalm 18:35 "Thou hast also
given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great"
Psalm35:3 "Draw out also the spear, and stop against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I [am] thy salvation"
Psalm 120:7 " I [am for] peace: but when I speak, they [are] for war"
Psalm 144:1 "Blessed the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, my fingers to fight"
fingers members of the body of Christ.
Romans 12:4-5 "4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members
have not the same office:5 So we many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another"
12:12, 14,20,27 "12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many,
are one body: so also [is] Christ" "14 For the body is not one member, but many" "20 But now many members,
yet but one body" "27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular"
I am a hand (I have
found my office) to hold the trumpet; the Lord Jesus Christ has fingers to play the trumpet (perhaps you see yourself as a
finger) play the joyful sound "SALVATION IS OF THE LORD"
Nehemiah 4:20 "20 In what place ye hear
the sound of the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us: our God shall fight for us"
Joshua 6:20-21 "20 So
the people shouted when [the priests] blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the
trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city,
every man straight before him, and they took the city.21 And they utterly destroyed all that [was] in the city, both man and
woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword"
Psalm 47:5 "God is gone
up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet"
Jeremiah 4:20-22 "20 destruction upon destruction
is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, [and] my curtains in a moment.21 How long shall I
see the standard, [and] hear the sound of the trumpet?22 For my people foolish, they have not known me; they [are] sottish
children, and they have none understanding: they [are] wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge"
Jeremiah 6:16-19 "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where [is] the good
way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk.17 Also I set watchmen over
you, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation,
what [is] among them.19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, the fruit of their thoughts, because they
have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it"
Freewill of man doctrine teachers reject God's
word and law. What law? The law of faith.
Romans 3:24-28 "24 Being justified freely by his grace
through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:25 Whom God hath set forth a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare
his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;26 To declare, at this time his
righteousness: that he be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.27 Where [is] boasting then? It is excluded.
By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without
the deeds of the law"
False teachers say that Salvation is Christ plus works (physical water baptism,
physical tithing, and physical communion) they teach people to trust or believe in physical works or deeds; therefore rejecting
the law of faith.
The sword = the Truth of God's Salvation.
Ezekiel 33:1-5 "33
Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When
I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:3 If when
he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the
trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.5 He heard the
sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul"
The sound of the trumpet = Salvation is of the Lord. To take warning is to trust in Christ alone for the Salvation
of the soul.
Joel 2:1 "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all
the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for nigh at hand"
1 Corinthians 14:8-9
"8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?9 So likewise ye, except ye utter
by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air"
Isaiah 42:13 "The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war:
he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies"
Joel 3:2 "I
will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will
plead with them there for my people and my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land"
valley of Jehoshaphat = "Jehovah has judged"
3:9-14 "9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near;
let them come up:10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I [am] strong.11
Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to
come down, O LORD.12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all
the heathen round about.13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats
overflow; for their wickedness [is] great.14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD near
in the valley of decision"
Psalm 53:1-3 "1 The fool hath said in his heart, "no God"
Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: none that doeth good.2 God looked down from heaven upon the children
of men, to see if there were [any] that did understand, that did seek God.3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether
become filthy; none that doeth good, no, not one"
it God's decision or man's decision? My soul sings and cries "My Salvation is God's decision"
Today, we are in the valley of decision!
2:13-14 "13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath
from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:14 Whereunto he called
you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ"
6:10-17 "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.11 Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high. 13 Wherefore take
unto you the whole armour of God, that ye be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.14 Stand therefore,
having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;15 And your feet shod with the preparation
of the gospel of peace;16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts
of the wicked.17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God"
Timothy 2:1-4 "1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.2 And the things that thou hast
heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.3 Thou therefore
endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of life; that
he pleases him, who hath chosen him to be a soldier"
Micah 3:5 "Thus saith the LORD concerning
the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths,
they even prepare war against him"
Psalm 37:39-40 "39 But the salvation
of the righteous of the LORD: their strength in the time of trouble.40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he
shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him"
Psalm 118:15 "The voice
of rejoicing and salvation [is] in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly"
The tabernacles of the righteous are God's elect/chosen people.
tabernacle = tent
nomad's tent, and thus symbolic of wilderness life, transience b) dwelling, home, habitation c)
the sacred tent of Jehovah (the tabernacle)
Psalm 46:7-11 "7 The LORD of hosts with us; the God of Jacob our refuge.
Selah.8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.9 He maketh wars to cease unto the
end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.10 Be still, and
know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.11 The LORD of hosts with us; the
God of Jacob our refuge. Selah"
Verse 9 "He maketh wars to cease" without Christ man is at war with
God; only through trusting in Christ alone is that His people have peace with God.
Romans 5:1 "Therefore being
justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ"
Ephesians 2:14-15 "14 For he is
our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition;15 Having abolished in his flesh
the enmity, the law of commandments in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, making peace"
18:2 "The LORD my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and
the horn of my salvation, my high tower"
Teach His Salvation!
Listen to the sound of the trumpet: SALVATION IS OF THE LORD!
I am a battle axe in the hand
of the Lord, a weapon of war!
LORD JESUS CHRIST.
