Throughout Scripture, blowing the trumpet was a prophetic signal and alarm to the nation. It represented the voice of God to alert both heaven and earth that something was about to happen. Blowing the trumpet was a rallying cry to worship (Numbers 29:1), and a call to repentance and consecration (Lev 25:9, Isaiah 58:1). It was also blown whenever the people of God were about to go to war (Numbers 10:8-9). It was only blown under God’s directives and had heaven’s authority on it.
However, blowing the trumpets was reserved solely for the PRIESTS and no one else. One commentary states: “In order to attract greater attention and more faithful observance, it was reserved to the priests alone, as the Lord‘s ministers; and as anciently in Persia and other Eastern countries the alarm trumpets were sounded from the tent of the sovereign, so were they blown from the tabernacle, the visible residence of Israel‘s King.” (Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible)
Obviously, on this side of the cross, we are all kings and priests unto the Lord and have been commissioned to be heralds of the gospel (1 Peter 2:9). However, I believe there is a divine FAVOR and AUTHORITY on appointed and anointed pastors and church leaders to SOUND AN ALARM within this nation. They have been given heaven’s authority to RALLY GOD’S PEOPLE to worship, repentance, and spiritual warfare. It is when they lift their voice to rally the troops and call people to specific action that nations will respond.
PRAY FOR PASTORS to have the courage in sounding the alarm concerning the threats within our nation. Pray that they would trumpet Kingdom directives in this time of spiritual warfare over our future. I see several nationally-known worship leaders calling the saints to worship. Let us pray that pastors would call the people to repent of our apathy, consecrate our cause, and stand in formation against the enemies of God. They’re the ones holding the trumpets and it’s time for them to blow them.
“And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets. The trumpets shall be to you for a perpetual statute throughout your generations. And when you go to war in your land against the adversary who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the LORD your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies.” (Numbers 10:8-9)
REPORTS FROM INTERCESSORS WHO ARE BUILDING PRAYER ALTARS IN THEIR CITIES!
It’s been amazing to hear from different leaders across the nation who are using “Moving from Sword to Scepter” for their prayer groups! They are getting the vision for establishing prayer altars in their city. This is a strategic key that can turn things around – when we decide to come into agreement and stand as a community of faith between heaven and earth!
Georgia Thomas says her Ladies Bible Study is going through the book. “It is a book ALL Governmental Intercessors MUST READ. And every believer. We are called to pray for our nation…it’s never too late to begin!” When she sent me the picture of her ladies around the table, she said “Praying over the gates of our city NOW!”
Pastor Brian Gibbs sent me a picture of his large group going through it together. “We are taking these 40 intercessors at our church (VICTORY) through your amazing book “From Sword to Scepter.” Tonight was chapter 7 on watchmen getting in position. Outstanding video. The Lord is using the book amongst us in beautiful ways! Tuesday night is corporate prayer and we incorporated your teaching before going into 2+ hours of mighty burning intercession.”
Wanda, now is the time to gather together Christian leaders, as a ‘hen her brood’, to stand together as one people, one voice, and the one body of Christ to take back America from the ‘godless left’ who want to eviscerate America, blind and hobble her like they blinded Samson, and parade her around ‘stripped and naked’ for all the world to see.
America is God’s footstool and beachhead in this battle against Satan.
Is 66:1 “Heaven is My throne and earth is my footstool. Where is the house that you will build me? And where is the place of My rest?”
If America capitulates, then so too does the world, and humanity will enter a Dark Age, and our suffering will be like no other.
Christians make up the majority of people living in America, but the problem is they are not unified, they are not one, so like a body without a brain and central nervous system, Christians have very little power to effect real change in the physical world, and advance God’s Kingdom.
That has already been proven as we look at the reality of America today, which is supposedly a Christian nation, but is it?
We need to be focused on ‘more weightier matters’ of Jesus’ teachings, not signs, wonders and miracles, which are ultimately meaningless if we do not have love. 1 Cor 13.
Jesus’ primary message was about love; love God and love your neighbour, who may well be your enemy as well.
Christians must now come together, and work together to restore the body of Christ. This is the Reformation that is needed, along with ensuring the re-election of Donald Trump for Christians to be vindicated, and for God’s Kingdom to come on earth as it is in Heaven.
Christians have been ‘measured, weighed and found wanting’. As God is One, so must His people be. Take action, as all God’s prophets, chosen individuals and people have done throughout history.
Action is always required by God’s people for God’s will to be accomplished. It does not just happen without man setting a condition through obedience, faith, action and sacrifice.
Did we win World War 2 by just praying. ‘The rubber has to meet the road’, and man must be engaged and active for God’s Will to be done on earth, and for God’s Kingdom to be established.
The mission for Christians right now in order to remove our fallen nature, having come to stand on Satan’s side, as we disobeyed Jesus’ prayer, Jn 17:20-24, is to unite, and re-elect Donald Trump. We have everything to win if we do, and everything to lose if we don’t.
God is willing this victory for us. We must wake up and realise that, and the crossroads we are currently standing at. This is not a dress rehearsal, this is the real thing, and there will be no ‘second take’. We can not get it wrong, otherwise the consequences will be all too dire.
