The Trumpet Sounds

By Cathy Irvin
Staff Writer - As a Christian, you may be asking yourself, what is the sound of the trumpet referring to? It is a clarion sound about an issue or an event that can be heard during times of concentrated prayer or discerned through some media message. You will hear these messages repeated over and over, and you will know that God is speaking to His people.

In the recent past, we cried out about the right to live in the Terri Schiavo case when the Supreme Court ruled to remove her feeding tube and to withdraw her water. Now, instead of focusing on a particular case, we are praying that the Supreme Court judges might execute justice. We are praying for God’s divine intervention. We are asking that they might hear God’s side before they make decisions that become the law of the land.

Remember: their decisions today affect our tomorrows. Be a voice and speak out. The best way to see results is through prayer. The slogan we often see on signs and billboards is “prayer changes things.” We must focus our prayers on the Supreme Court.

I can hear the trumpet sounding to take my seat, for God’s Court is in session. He waits for us to come boldly to the throne, with authority as believers in Jesus’ name, and make our petitions known. One thing is different about this courtroom: there is only one Judge, the Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth.

You can be confident that He hears you and will answer you. He will not decline to listen.

GOD rules. On your toes, everybody! He rules from his angel throne—take notice! (Psalm 99:1,The Message).

GOD has set his throne in heaven; he rules over us all. He's the King! (Psalm 103:19, The Message).
