1 Cor. 15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Update on Absence

Good morning, Readers! It has been a challenging two weeks, to say the least. My husband has been quite ill and had two major surgeries between December 8th and the 16th! This isn’t the first time he’s been this sick. You would think I’d be used to his sickness. But when you see your spouse so sick, near death, you can’t walk away from it without an ache in your heart. However, (and that’s a BIG however) the Lord sustains and comforts me. Friend, there is no other like Jesus! We can overcome our trials with His help and the blessing of family and friends! I have a dear friend who came to comfort me and she was my “Jesus with skin on”! What a comfort – what a blessing!

God blessed me with another friend who shared this verse, Zephaniah 3:17, and it totally lifted my spirit! She knew exactly what I needed as well! Not only did I experience God’s “touch” through my friend, Angie, but I experienced His Word where it firmly planted itself in my heart through Lisa!

Although Zephaniah 3:17 was meant for Israel, it most definitely can apply to me as I’ve been grafted into that olive tree (Israel) when I was born again!

With that said, let’s break down Zephaniah 3:17:

  • The Lord saved me – Luke 7:50, Luke 18:42, Acts 16:31, Romans 10:9, Ephesians 2:8-9
  • The Lord is with me – His Holy Spirit resides within me and will never leave me (Hebrews 13:5)
  • The Lord rejoiced over me when I became His child at salvation! Just as an earthly father rejoices when his child is born, so did my Heavenly Father! Just as it says in the Parable of the Prodigal Son: Luk 15:24  For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Also, the angels rejoiced when I was saved (Luke 15:10)!
  • The Lord gives beautiful peace and rest now that I am His (John 3:16, John 14:27).
  • And lastly, the Lord joys over me with singing! (Luke 15:10, Luke 15:6, Luke 15:9) Just as an earthly father brags on his children with joy in his heart, so does our Heavenly Father!

I am a child of the King! I love this song because it expresses exactly the overwhelming love I have for my Saviour!

Child of the King

Once I was clothed in the rags of my sin,
Wretched and poor, lost and lonely within.
But with wondrous compassion, the King of all kings,
In pity and love, took me under His wings.

Oh, yes, oh yes, I’m a child of the King
His royal blood now flows in my veins.
And I who was wretched and poor now can sing
Praise God, praise God, I’m a child of the King.

Now I’m a child with a Heavenly home,
My Holy Father has made me His own.
And I’m cleansed by His blood, and I’m clothed in His love & someday I’ll sing with the angels above.


Thank you Jesus! No matter what trials I go through, I know that my Father in Heaven loves me. I show this love to others by rejoicing in the trial He has allowed me to go through. He joys over me and sings!

Jewish Feasts & Jesus Revealed – Feast of Trumpets*

Levicus 23:23-25  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  (24)  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.  (25)  Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

Good morning dear Reader! I do so apologize for the interruption. My husband had surgery and recuperation is extremely slow. Hopefully his healing won’t be too much longer!I’m praying that you are enjoying this series. I love reading anything about my Saviour and how He is revealed, especially in the Old Testament. These feasts are a wonderful depiction of His salvation and His reign to come!

Today, we’re going to cover the Feast of Trumpets. I love trumpets, don’t you? They are so loud and when one is played, it gets your attention. This is exactly what they were designed to do. From my research, I’ve learned that this Feast comes each year in late September to October according to the Jewish calendar. As you’ve probably noticed, trumpets are used throughout the Bible for different purposes. A trumpet (this is called the shofar) would be blown to call Israel to assemble together, a call to march and a call to war. The Scripture above says it was to be:

  • As a Sabbath to Israel where they would do no work.
  • A memorial of blowing trumpets, a holy convocation which simply means an act of calling or assembling (according to Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary).
  • To do no work
  • A time to offer a burnt offering unto the Lord.

The main point was to remember the Lord and to focus this time around Him and to “call” them to repentance. It makes sense since ten days later, they will be celebrating the Day of Atonement. Everything that happened to Israel at Mount Sinai set them apart as a nation – it was God’s covenant with them. The Feast of Trumpets reminds Israel that they are God’s people. This covenant (the Law) calls them to repent and seek atonement. We will cover that in more detail when we do the post on the Day of Atonement.

Some Christians believe that the Rapture will occur during the Feast of Trumpets. However, I’m not 100% convinced of this. If we look at 1 Thessalonians 4:16, we see that the Rapture trumpet is the “trump of God,” not the manmade silver trumpets of Numbers 10:2. This phrase, “trump of God,” is only mentioned once in the entire Bible. The rule of “firsts” would apply here. This trump is only blown when Christ comes in the clouds (1 Thessalonians 4:17). There is also the “last trumpet” spoken of in 1 Corinthians 15:52; in my findings, I take it to mean that it is the last opportunity for Believers to leads others to Christ – it is the Church’s last call and the end of the Church age. Israel will now become the focal point of God’s judgment to draw them to the Messiah.

The last trumpet blown in the Tribulation is for Christ’s Second Coming so this is where lies some confusion. Will the Lord Rapture us during this Feast? Maybe. However Jesus said in Matthew 24:36 that no one knows the day or the hour except our Heavenly Father.

Don’t these symbolic points of these Feasts excite your spirit? Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ, personally or do you only know of Him? He is the true sinless Lamb of God! I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
