Open your Bibles with me to Numbers, chapter 10. Numbers chapter 10. And let us start with a word of prayer Shall we? Heavenly Father, we come before you, Lord in Jesus name and above all Father, we want to thank you, Lord so much. Father, we pray that our gratitude Lord would come right from the very center of our hearts, Lord, or wouldn’t be something that we say because we’re supposed to Lord that there would never be any kind of religiosity to our relationship or walk with You, God forbid, Lord, but we would enjoy the relationship that was one for us, Lord, that was made possible by the blood of your own dear son, Lord, and if you would send your only son father whom you love, to be tortured and to be murdered and to be killed and His Blood to be spilled out, so that we could be called sons and daughters father, how great must your love towards us be? And God forbid that we would take that for granted. And God forbid that we would take that lightly Lord, or not use that love and use that grace that you’ve given us father, it’s so high a cost father to run, and to chase father after the perfection of the cross. Lord, we pray that you would forgive us, all of us, father for our laziness, Lord for our attentiveness, Lord for our distraction. Or we every single day find ourselves unworthy of the love father that you bestowed upon us. And yet, in spite of that, Father, Your Grace is new every morning, every single morning. You love us just as much as before Jesus died on the cross for our sins, Lord, we never disappoint you, Father, because you see in us something that transcends ourselves. Something that goes beyond the filthiness of our own flesh, Lord, you see in us a treasure that’s there, Lord, we confess to you So often we can’t see it, Lord, but you, you have, you have found us, Lord, and you’ve called us. So Lord, we pray and ask Lord as we study your word together, and as we gather together, Father, that we would be people who are seeking after a closer walk with you, and that we would not be satisfied father with the status quo, Lord, that we would look to giants of the faith like Chuck Smith, and Spurgeon and towser. And Paul, and we would say, why not me? Why can’t I have a walk with the Lord, the way they did? Father, there are men and women just like us, Lord, the only thing that they had that we don’t father is a willingness and a desire to put you in front of every other thing, Lord, and we can’t do that on our own. So we pray and ask that you would make that so in our hearts, Lord and all the more as we see that day approaching. In Jesus name we pray, Amen. Amen. Numbers chapter 10. We’re going to be doing a little bit of a study on trumpets. This morning. Numbers chapter 10, starting with verse one. And the Lord spoke to Moses saying, make two silver trumpets for yourself, you shall make them of hammered work, you shall use them for calling the congregation and for directing the movement of the camps. When they blow both of them, all the congregation shall gathered before you at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. But if they blow only one, then the leaders the heads of the divisions of Israel shall gather to you. When you sound, the advance, the camps that lie on the east side, shall then begin their journey. And when you sound, the advanced the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall begin their journey. They show sound the call for them to begin their journeys and when the assembly is to be gathered together. You shall blow But not sound, the advance. The sons of Aaron, the priests shall blow the trumpets. And these shall be to you as an ordinance forever throughout your generations. 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, and 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.
And so God now is instructing Moses in this portion to construct two trumpets, excuse me, two trumpets and they were to be hammered. Work. That is the work of a craftsman, not of a molded work. They were to be hammered out made out of silver, and hammered out in fashion in these trumpets. Now just imagine again, if you will, the size of the congregation of Israel anywhere from 1 million to 2 million people. You know, they think it was it was hundreds of square miles that the camp covered. So these trumpets would have to be something else, right? And they would have to be of a size and of equality, that when they were blown, the people would know and the people would understand exactly what was happening. These trumpets were different. There’s many different kinds of trumpets. We’re going to kind of go through that in the Old Testament and talk about trumpets. But there was many different kinds of trumpets of Ram’s horns. of sheeps horns there was trumpets of of brass, and there’s trumpets of these like these of silver. There’s many different trumpets throughout the Old Testament and there’s different trumpets that were used. for different purposes, but these two specifically were given, were to be given to Moses to give to the priest to blow concerning the congregation of Israel, when it was time to move out when it’s time to gather the assembly, when it was time to advance to go into some sort of warfare. And before the appointed feasts, these trumpets were to be sounded, and no doubt, the trumpets were very distinct. No doubt that that when people heard these trumpets, they knew there was something about these trumpets that they knew, you know, I wonder in conjunction with, you know, Dad talks about the Temple Institute, we went to Israel, I’ve only been once, highly recommend that if you’ve never been, but we went to the Temple Institute and they had a reconstruction of the menorah. And they were telling us how they can’t build it. per the instructions of God to Moses, that’s not possible. They have to put iron in in framework inside of it to make it stay And otherwise, because it’s gold remember it was pure gold and it’s a large lampstand it’s huge like this but huge and the arms simply sag down because gold is not a hardened metal. And so they had to put framework in there. And and and you know, and the guys that get at the templates to selling this very matter of factly and I’m like, I guarantee you they didn’t put metal framework in the menorah in this in the wilderness. Why? Because God didn’t tell him to God makes it made the whole thing of gold hammered work of gold. And so you wonder, either the craftsmanship was, you know, and there’s so many things like this if you guys you know, watch modern marvels and Ancient Wonders and all these some of these shows that are on TV some of the things that they were doing back in ancient Egypt you know, they found like models of what looks like airplanes like gliders from from the from a gyptian days. What the heck is all about? You know, could they fly in some capacity We have no idea how they built the pyramids. Absolutely no idea. I, if I remember correctly even with with our modern technology and machinery, we could not build the pyramids. And there and then how the heck did they do these things? I don’t know. And I really don’t care quite frankly, I my interest goes, he goes to a point. But my but the point I want to make is what manner of trumpets were these? Was there some sort of, of not in the in the silver itself, we know that there’s, there’s nothing holy, there’s nothing that is spiritual, in anything that’s material. But when God ordained something like the Ark of the Covenant, or the excuse me, I always say that because of the Indiana Jones, but the Ark of the testimony is actually called. So when I say Ark of the Covenant, just remember that in my head I want because that’s what happens. But the Ark of the testimony, it was gold. It was was made of wood and then overlaid completely with gold. It was just a chest. But God, somehow his presence dwell in between the chair of him on what was called the mercy seat on the top of that arc and the power that came from that arc and exuded from that arc because of God’s presence there was amazing was astounding and frightening and fearful. And so I wonder this for all of these different things concerning the tabernacle wasn’t just a trumpet of hammered work. It was a divinely inspired trumpet of hammered work to be put into the service as God instructed. So I wonder, what are those trumpets sound like? as what I think in my head, in my mind, I’m thinking they didn’t sound like any trumpet you’ve ever heard. And down through through the history of the nation of Israel, we get into the time of Solomon and of course, the kingdom of Solomon is just when we get there. It’s just absolutely amazing. It’s absolutely founding Solomon’s kingdom and the things that he accomplished in the things that he built, and the just the immense the magnitude of the temple that he built. And and it was different from what God had instructed Moses It was such a greater, grander scale. You know, and I always wondered, you know, obviously God ordained it God or God blessed it. You know God’s presence comes at the dedication of the temple, when they bring the ark and put it into the holy place in the presence of God filled Solomon’s Temple said all the priests had to leave. They had to come running out because God’s presence filled that whole temple. His presence was there in such a mighty way that they couldn’t stand in there. So I would say God blessed it. But there’s nothing there, of where God said, Solomon, this is how I want you to build the temple. He blessed it. He used it in all of its magnitude and all of its greatness. But when God instructed the children Israel to build a tabernacle in the wilderness to me. That’s where I really see God to me. For me personally from what I know of the Lord, and what I’ve read from Scripture, and how I see God interacting with his kids, give me the simple tabernacle with animal skins, just exactly the way God had said to build it over the grand his temple with a gold and jewels in in such an amount that when you walk in, you would be floored, absolutely blown away. When they built the temple after Jerusalem was destroyed, the temple was destroyed, and the shows of Israel were taken completely into captivity in Babylon. When they came back from captivity and they rebuilt the temple. It says that the old ones wept. they wept because they remembered Solomon’s temple. They remember Solomon’s temple and how grand it was, and how amazing it was, but for me Personally, give me the tabernacle in the wilderness, any day of the week and twice on Sundays. Give me the tabernacle the wilderness, because God’s divinely inspired Word and will was fully realized there. And it was simple.
It was amazing. But it was simple. If they come and look at this model, you’re like, that’s it. Simple. But when God is there, there’s nothing that can’t be. And so when God says, I want you to create these two trumpets of hammered work of silver, and I want the priests to blow them for this occasion, that occasion, I think that when they blew those trumpets, it was more than just the sound of a trumpet that happened. Think of the cloud, pillar of cloud by day and fire by night the presence of God and when it lifted up and moves and the children of Israel would move a natural in the trumpet would sound What do you suppose that trumpet sound? Like I just what do you suppose happened in the hearts of the people? And it all surrounds and it all goes around God’s Will God’s word. God’s direction was there and being kept perfectly. Wow. Which then I always think, what would my life look like? Great because I’m just a simple man of animal skin. You know what I mean? There’s nothing flashy or fancy about me, or any of us really. But what God can do with a hammered work, you know what I mean? And boy, you know, and when the apostle talks about us being hard pressed on every side beaten down, and pressed on every set, but not crushed, but not destroyed. And then when we hear him say that as he cried out to God about the thorn in his side, and God says, My strength is made perfect in weakness, Paul, my strength is made perfect in weakness. I’m not looking for the grandest thing. I’m not looking for the greatest thing. Now listen, I hate to do this too, but have you guys ever seen the Last Crusade? Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade? Haha, I can’t help it. It kind of goes, I’m sorry. And they’re looking for the Holy Grail. There’s no such thing as the Holy Grail. Spoiler, okay, there’s no such thing as a Holy Grail. But you remember when they finally get to the end and they go through and and I’ve been in that, you know, the castle that’s built into the side of the mountain that they get to where all the booby traps. I’ve been there that’s in Jordan. That’s Petra. I’ve been there. And I was so disappointed. I was so disappointed. I’m expecting booby traps, and walkways and the leap of faith and all that. It’s just a cave. There’s nothing in there. I was horribly disappointed horribly, right? Like you call this, Petra this. So he gets through all that and they finally get into the room members of the ancient night from the Crusades. It’s still divinely alive. Because he drank from the, from the from the Holy Grail, and Indiana Jones has to find it which one is the holy grail? Which one is that is that is the cup of Christ and it’s him in the bad guy. And the bad guys looks and the bad guy sees this golden Chalice with jewels all around it. And he goes, that’s the cup of cake. That’s the cup of the king. And so he takes any dips in the water and he drink set. And then he in only in the in the in classic Indiana Jones fashion, he melts away into a skeleton and turns to dust. I love it. And the night goes like this, he chose poorly. And now it’s in these turn. And now attendees turn in all these golden cups and all these fancy things. And then he sees this little clay cup, this little simple, ugly little cup. And he said that’s the cup of a carpenter. Say whoever knew that you could preach out of Indiana Jones movies, right? But can you see what I’m saying? Right? It’s a dumb movie. But the point is made. That’s the cup of a carpenter. God is not looking for the fanciness. God is not looking for the flash. You know so much in the church today is flash. So much of what’s happening in the church today. And listen, I am so grateful. I’m so thankful. I mean, some of them these songs that we’re singing a lot of these new songs that we’re doing that I don’t know about you, but to me, I’m singing them. It’s like, I’m ready. Like, I’m just like, it’s like rapture practice. You know what I mean? Like, I expect to be taken up mid verse, you know? But they’re done these amazing worship teams from these ginormous massive churches. But what worries me and what concerns me about these, these these things, and I’m not to judge, I’m so grateful for the worship. But that but that Christ would be lost.
The meaning for even gathering together would be lost because of the of the concert of it all. Because of the beauty of it all because of the entertainment overall. And it’s so beautiful. It’s so amazing to see hundreds and hundreds of people. You know what I’m saying? All from all different kinds of walks of life gathered and just worshiping with all their heart, it seems, and it just is so beautiful. And it’s such a wonderful thing. And I’m always thinking, Man, I’d like to attend one of those, one of those services. But then I wonder what word would be brought to go along with the worship? What word would be brought? Because what’s most important is the word of God. What’s most important is that we honor the scriptures. That’s that’s what’s most important. Again, please, I’m not putting down any churches. But maybe I’m putting them all down, right? I mean, I don’t care Joel olsteen can’t beat me. You know what I’m saying? Fight. Me, I don’t care, like, like, I’m serious. Like, I’m not trying to judge anybody. But if I’m judging anybody, then so be it. Because God’s word is preeminent. And the truth of God’s word comes before every other thing. And you can have the best kind of worship in your life. And you can have all sorts of amazing experiences, spiritual experiences in your life. And if you don’t know what the word of God says, you’re missing the boat brother. If we don’t know and understand what God says, and what God’s commandments are to the church, we’re missing the boat completely. It doesn’t matter how good the worship is. It doesn’t matter how dynamic the preaching is. It doesn’t matter how cool and how many tattoos the preachers have. I would have tattoos, but I just know stupid. I’d look at him. You know what I’m saying? I’m a fan. I like the whole I like to sleep like the rock has, you know what I’m saying? Like the trick that I like it. I think it’s cool. I just realized what an idiot I would look at. And I always picture Nikki right? Anything that I’m about to do, Mike, I picture Nikki and her response. And you know, here’s typically what the what the look is. It’s usually something like that, you know, or super cool pastor or something like that. But God is concerned, God is concerned with what’s on the inside. Guys concerned with at the heart and God, God so often and you see everything he does and the simplicity of it. God’s not looking at us for for us to match what’s in heaven, please. God’s looking for us to honor his word. God’s looking for us to do the things that he’s called us to do. Now, speaking of trumpets, interestingly enough, their introduction to trumpets, when it comes to their relationship with God is an interesting one and a fearful one in Exodus chapter 19. You can turn there if you’re like Exodus chapter 19, starting with verse 16. Exodus 1916 you guys remember this and I’m going to read it in the King James Version because it’s so much better. In the King James is one verse anyways, I love it. And it came to pass on the third day in the morning that there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud, so that all the people that were that was in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the nether part of the mountain, and Mount Sinai was all together on a smoke because the Lord descended upon it in fire, and the smoke there have ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly and when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and wax louder and louder. Moses spake. And God answered him by a voice. And the LORD came down upon upon Mount Sinai on the top of the mount. And the Lord called Moses up to the top of the mountain. And Moses went up. This is a supernatural trumpet is the voice of a trumpet. This is the trumpet coming from Mount Sinai that is all together on a smoke and we watch the special about the real Mount Sinai in Arabia. Not we’re not were tour tour guides are taken and stuff like that, but the one that’s in Arabia, which is where the Apostle Paul says it’s, it’s in Arabia, and that’s why these people started looking here. And there’s this mountain range and the Bedouins and the people that live there, who are who are Muslims, Muslim Arabs, they, they told the Americans and the gothard this is this is the mountain of Moses, this mountain of Moses, and the entire top of the mountain the whole range but the entire top of the main mountain is black.
The whole thing is black as though the entire thing was on fire at one point. And the Bible says that the presence of God is centered on the mountain. I mean, what does that look like the mountain was all together on a smoke. And there’s Trump, there’s thunders and lightnings. And the whole mountain is shaking. And there’s his trumpet that begins to blow, and louder and louder and louder. And then the voice of God and the people are just freaked out. If you remember reading this chapter. The people are scared to death. At one point, they tell Moses don’t listen, you go speak to God. And then who tell us what he says, because we don’t want to be anywhere near that, because we’re scared to death. And so that’s one aspect of the idea of the trumpet of the Divine of a divine trumpet. It’s displaying the awesome power and glory of Almighty God is to make the people it called to attention but also to put them in fear of Almighty God. Okay, so there’s there’s one. In Numbers chapter 31, verse six, we’re going to see these trumpets used, specifically here. Then Moses sent them to the war 1000 from each tribe and he sent them to the war with Phineas, the son of Ellie’s or the priest, with the holy articles and the signal trumpets in his hand as they went out to war. In Leviticus chapter 23, verses 23 and 24. Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, speak to the children of Israel, saying, in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation convocation. Leviticus chapter 25 and verse nine. Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the 10th day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement, you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all of your lands. So you have the feast of trumpets and you have the sounding of the trumpet on the Sabbath. But then 10 days into the first month, you have this was going to be in the Oh, this is only in the year of jubilee, you have this additional blowing of the trumpet. Let’s see, the Day of Atonement. On the Day of Atonement, you make a trumpet to sound throughout all of your land. And this is where he’s talking about Jubilee. So here we have these single trumpets us now you have the calling to war, you have the moving of the people. And now here is God calling these convocations and calling the people to him in worship, to celebrate these specific feasts, various other trumpets in Scripture. Joshua in the battle of Jericho, and in Joshua, chapter six, and verse four, and those are Ram’s horns that were that were used. in Judges chapter seven and verse 16, the trumpets of Gideons men remember each one of Gideons men were given a trick jumpin and a jar and a torch or 300 men. So 300 trumpets. And then in Second Chronicles, chapter five and verse 13, we read about the temple musicians, and all the all the trumpets that these various assembly was 120 trumpets that were using the worshipping of God. So all of these, these, these, these trumpets that are used various forms of trumpets use for various various different activities for worship for calling the people. But there’s an idea here there’s a, there’s a, there’s a theme here of the trumpet, but there is a separation, there is a vast difference between all these other trumpets that were blown for various things. And when God was sounding the trumpet to call the people to his attention. It’s a completely different thing. And these two trumpets are a part of that. And I just want to read a couple other portions of Scripture. And this is where it pertains to us. Matthew, chapter 24, verse 31, Jesus says, And he will send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet. And they will gather together his he lacked from the four winds from one end of heaven to the other. And I and I, what does that trumpet gonna sound like guys? Again in First Corinthians chapter 15, verse 52, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, it’s the last trumpet for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed. So now imagine if you will, and we’re going to be moving into revelation here just for just a couple of cover a couple of verses, but that that trumpet from Mount Sinai when the children of Israel before Mount Sinai, and in Moses gathers the people there at the foot of the mountain, the mountain is all together on a smoke and there’s this trumpet that grows louder and louder and louder and louder. I wonder if that’s what the trumpet is going to sound like. You know, what is that trumpet gonna sound like that. In my mind. This is going to be the trumpet of God. This is is going to be that divine trumpet, that divine trumpet that sounds, calling his elect. And imagine if you will go and talk about fear. And I don’t know if only we are going to hear that trumpet, or is everyone going to hear the trumpet? Yeah, the verse is about the princes and the kings of the earth, calling for the mountains to fall on them, and hide them for the face of the land because the great day of his judgment is coming, who can stand? So I wonder how many of these things because this is the beginning of the end. And how many of these things are going to be absolutely heard and absolutely visible to the people of planet Earth? Imagine hearing this trumpet that crows louder and louder and being completely confused as to where this trumpet noise is coming from. And graves are opened up and people are coming forth from their graves and glorified bodies. And then Christians who are alive at that point are changed are translated and glorified. And then ascended to heaven to meet with Jesus Christ. Now that’s a trumpet. Can you imagine that? A couple other verses. Revelation, chapter one and verse 10. Of course, john on the island of Patmos on the Lord’s day. And remember when Jesus appears to him, it says his voice was like a trumpet. And then when john is translated into the spirit and Revelation chapter four, verses one and two, john says, After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard that was Jesus, remember, was like a trumpet, speaking with me saying, Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this. And immediately I was in the spirit and behold, a throne set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And so there’s this trumpet that he says came from the voice. of the one who first spoke which is Jesus Christ. And instantaneously Johnson the spirits almost looks sounds like the rapture, doesn’t it? There’s this trumpet is it and remember back in, in, in Exodus, it says, the voice of the trumpet, the voice of the trumpet. Is it is it Jesus speaking? I mean, we have no idea this is all 100% conjecture, other than the fact that we know what’s going to happen because the Bible says so. But so john hears his voice like a trumpet, as the first in Revelation chapter four. And instantly he’s in the spirit standing before the throne of God. Pastor Chuck used to say that he thought that was a picture of the Rapture. And then finally, the last trumpets that we read about in the Bible, are horrible, awful, trumpet judgments of revelation chart starting in chapter eight of Revelation, we start reading about the trumpet judgments. And there are seven trumpets that say And we’ll finish up with this. The first trumpet that sounds, the vegetation is struck, and and and much of it is destroyed. The second trumpet the seas are struck. And and and i think it’s a third of life in the seas dies and this stinks. In the third trumpet the waters are struck with Wormwood and it became unclean. And the fourth trumpet, the heavens are struck, and then the sky is scorched. The fifth trumpet are the locusts that come up out of the pit to torment mankind. The sixth truck and I always forget about this until I revisit it and then I’m horrified all over again. The sixth trumpet is this demonic Horde. This massive army The Bible says 200 million in number 200 million in number. And he describes them these creatures from the river Euphrates and they’re sent across the earth to destroy I believe it is a third of mankind. Now, interestingly enough with the trumpets, you have these awful judgments that get worse and worse and worse and worse, these trumpet judgments after the sixth trumpet, we have a break before the seventh trumpet, interestingly enough, and remember john has given that little scroll to eat. He says it tastes as sweet as honey. But then when is it was in his when it when he ate, it was bitter. The aftertaste was bitter. And then right after that we have the account of the two witnesses that are sent to planet earth, to proclaim the gospel to call out the kingdom of antichrist for being exactly what it is, and and the armies of Antichrist and the people of the city and all these other different groups of people try to kill the prophets. They try to kill them to silence them from the words that they’re speaking and every time that people approach them to kill them. The Bible says fire comes out of their mouth and consumes them. That’s going to be interesting. Right. And then eventually, the Antichrist has given the authority and the power to kill the two prophets and they lay dead in the streets. And they people refuse to bury them. And they gloat over their bodies. And it says that they give gifts to one another, they make a holiday out of their deaths, because of how they torment the people of Earth. And then the third day, God raises them to life. And they go into heaven, in front of everybody. And that’s when the seventh trumpet sounds like the seventh trumpet is interesting, because it’s different than any other trumpet. And when let’s let’s turn there, and then we’ll finish with this. The seventh trumpet revelation, and it’s in chapter 11 verse 15. Now, all of these horrible judgments Taking place. And then there’s this break after the demonic horde is set loose upon planet Earth. There’s a short break, john has his his his his his his meeting with the angel and he eats the scroll. And then you have the account of the two witnesses, and they’re killed. And then on the third day they raise up and God takes them up into heaven. And then the seventh angel inch and revelation 1115. Then the seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and they were loud voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world have become the kings and kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. And he shall reign forever and ever. And the 24 elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces, and worshiped God saying, We give you thanks so Lord God Almighty, the one who is and who was and who has to come, because you have taken your great power and rained, the nations were angry and your wrath is calm. The time of the dead, that they should be judged that you should reward your servants, the prophets and the saints and those who fear your name small and great, and should destroy those who destroy the Earth. So the very last trumpet that we have in the Bible and the entire and the entire Word of God is the seventh trumpet. When the kingdoms of this world are made the kingdoms of Jesus Christ is incredible. And it’s interesting too, because if you do if you do more of a word Study With trumpets, and you go through kings and Chronicles, when a king was anointed, there was a blowing of a trumpet there was a proclamation and the blowing of the trumpet when they were anointed king over Israel. And it’s interesting to see the same thing with with with Jesus Christ here in Revelation. That’s it. That’s all I got. Let’s pray.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word. Lord, we thank you for the for the great promises, Lord that you’ve given us. Lord, we ask and pray, Father that you would help us also to have A very sober minded perspective, Lord of this earth, Lord, and that it belongs to you. And that we would be like the children of Israel father in the sense of understanding your awesome power, Lord. And when we think about the trumpet that we’re waiting to hear, Father, we ask and pray, Lord God, that before that trumpet sounds, and before the trumpets after that, Father, that you would help us to be the people we need to be Lord so that we can proclaim the gospel to as many people father as would be saved, Lord, and that many people would be brought into the Kingdom before these dreadful things take place on planet Earth. Father, we pray that you would help us to be faithful to your word, Lord, to in our hearts to remain simple, Lord, to that we want to be a work of you father, not anything of fancy Lord or of, of magnitude Lord, but simply simple vessels. Lord called by you, and the ministries that you give us father and everything to We do would be done according to your word father, as you’ve called us to do it that we would be faithful to you Lord into your into your word, we ask and pray, Lord, that you your will would be accomplished in us and through us and in this church, Lord and we just pray that you would continue to instruct us, Lord, and continue to draw deeper into our knowledge of you through the study of your word, Lord, and through our relationship with you. Father, we praise you, and we thank you and we glorify you in Jesus name, amen. Amen. Thanks, everybody.
