A Trumpet in Zion
© June 2003 by Asher Intrater
I was struck recently by this prophecy from Joel 2:1 -
I realized that this was not speaking of us "charismatics" blowing ram's horns in our worship services, but rather the declaring of an urgent prophetic message, both in Israel and around the world.That message has to do with the "day of the Lord." That day is the second coming of Yeshua (Jesus). We have to proclaim in the most urgent and public way, the soon coming of the Messiah, as conquering king and righteous judge. It is an end-times message. It is preaching the gospel in the light of the soon approaching "day of judgment."In thinking of the end times, many believers get caught up in the wrong emphases, such as, "Who is the anti-Christ?" and "When is the rapture?" I am surprised how much confusion there is over these issues. Because of that issue, we are not really proclaiming to the world in an effective way that the day of the Lord is at hand.This has always been a central message of the Bible in all generations, and therefore how much more so in our generation.
