The Last Trump

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 15 v 51 - 52: "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 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."
1 Thessalonians 4 v 16 - 17: "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

Friends, I love the Lord, and I love His ways!  He has chosen a man named Trump to be the next American President.  Shockwaves have reverberated around the globe ever since he trumped every ace the opposition had, and the protests are mounting.

But this man Trump is the choice of Almighty God our Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ.  He is a billboard for God's agenda for the world to read.  God is shouting out to us all that the last trump is about to sound.  He is alerting us in good time to get our house in order.

Everything Jesus foretold in Matthew 24 that would herald His return, has already occurred. Every box has been ticked.  There are increasing numbers of earthquakes rocking this planet, weather is extreme in many places, plagues continue to threaten, fear is everywhere.  There are famines, droughts, floods, divorces, anarchy, rebellion, wars, militants, migrants, financial woes, political tension, diabetes, cancer, AIDS, and everything else that signals a dying world.

In the twinkling of an eye, measured as 1/64th of a second, the last trump will sound and born again Christians whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life, will be found here no longer.  Gone in the speed of a flash of lightning to be forever with the Lord.

Trump is a man after God's own heart.  He loves Israel and has promised to recognise Jerusalem as its capital city, which is causing panic among the Muslim countries, especially the Palestinians, as they want Jerusalem too.  But God will be God, who gave Israel ALL the land from the Mediterranean to the Euphrates River.  Donald Trump has promised to be a powerful friend to Israel and to help her properly defend herself against terrorism and unprovoked attacks.

The Democrats lean the other way, the Arab way, and try to push Israel into accepting compromises that favour Palestinians and make Israel more vulnerable.  They reckon without a holy God and His Covenant love for His chosen nation.  The Lord is shaking this world full of atheists, agnostics, heathen, communist, anti-Semitic, anti-Christ, pagan, cultish people, in the hope of saving some.  He is sending a trumpet blast to awaken the nations before the end comes and they run out of options.

The Day is fast approaching and God wants you ready and eagerly awaiting the Rapture of the Body of Jesus Christ to join Him in the sky above Earth.  No other people can be part of it.  Israel, His Bride, still has to go through great tribulation until the world's armies march on her to destroy her.  Then the Bridegroom will arrive complete with every dead and living saint, to rescue her by destroying over 150 million soldiers in one moment by the Sword of His mouth.  The rest flee.

Saints are born again believers not Roman Catholic people who do miracles after they die.  Saints walk in the light and truth of the Bible, not in the lies and errors of the shameless.  God will judge Rome for its arrogance and corruption, as He will judge the nations who flout His Word.

Donald Trump has said he will abolish the laws of Barack Obama concerning transgender bathrooms,  homosexual marriage, and abortion.  These are things of Satan that God hates, and His judgment will be righteous.  He is sending a messenger to make straight the paths of the Lord before Jesus comes back.

Trump plans to deport 3 million illegal immigrants who have criminal records.  Sure there is an outcry, maybe by you, until you or your family become victims.  God is using president-elect Trump to restore America to a better country than it is today, with better protection from within its borders.

No one knows when that last trump will sound, but the writing is on the wall and should be heeded.  To those who abide in Jesus Christ, there is nothing to fear. To those who don't know Him yet, now is your opportunity to reach eternal safety.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, our future is assured and our lives are saved, because we do Your will.  We oppose the sins of the world and love righteousness.  We are listening for the last trump to sound which will bring us into Your presence.  All Your prophets are speaking with urgency that time has run out.  Is Donald Trump Your way of sending the final warning?  We ask in Jesus' name. Amen.
