Blow the Trumpet!
God's World-Wide Mobilization Call
A Prophecy for
- THIS GENERATION -
Here and Now
God says, The end of all flesh is come before me;
for the earth is filled with violence through them;
and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
A Time to Die to the Flesh
For flesh and blood reveals it unto them,
but not my Father which is in heaven.
Disciples ask, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?
Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise hath also the Son of man suffered of them.
But certain of the scribes and Pharisees ask, we would see a sign from thee.
An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so was the Son of man three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
Wherefore, Behold, I sent unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye killed and crucified; and some of them ye scourged in your synagogues, and persecuted them from city to city: Verily I say unto you, All these things came upon this generation. For wheresoever the carcase was, there were the eagles gathered together. And upon you shall come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And so if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work. Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways: Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
Unto Noah I say, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Yet the Pharisees still question him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. And sighing deeply in his spirit, and he saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
Even so, the Pharisees and lawyers still reject the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.
Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept. John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil. The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! But wisdom justifies all her children.
The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
And now lawyers ask, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.
Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
The days came, when ye desired to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye did not see it. Yet they say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, hath shined unto the other part under heaven; so is also the Son of man this day. As he hath suffered many things, and been rejected of this generation.
And as is in the days of Noe, so it is in the days of the Son of man. They eat, they drink, they marry wives, they are given in marriage, until the day that Noe enters into the ark of testimony, and the flood comes, and destroys them all.
Likewise also is it as in the days of Lot; they eat, they drink, they buy, they sell, they they plant, build; But the same day that Lot goes out of Sodom it will rain fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroy them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
And immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Remember Lot's wife. Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
And they ask, Where, Lord?
Wheresoever the body is, thither are the eagles gathered together.
So when ye see that the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, is standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
Woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in these days! Pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. For in these days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
But concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts.
Though, what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that hear him, and the publicans, justify God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; They now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is nigh at hand. So likewise ye, seeing these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die;
and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn
the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life;
the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity;
but his blood will I require at thine hand.
~ * ~
Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness,
and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die:
because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin,
and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered;
but his blood will I require at thine hand.
~ * ~
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet,
and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take
any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;
but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
Ezekiel 3:18, 20, 33:6
