The Proper Alarm

1 Corinthians 14:8

King James Version (KJV)

For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?

Think about this for a moment. If the trumpet (shofar) gives an uncertain sound, how will the people know to prepare themselves for the battle? I believe this message is for everyone but especially for the Pastors. Why? Because Pastors are the ones who are supposed to be the watchmen on the wall. They are the ones who are supposed to see the onslaught of an attack. We as shepherds have a responsibility to look over the entire land. We are supposed to be watching from a high point. If we see an attack then we need to properly sound the alarm.

There is great darkness around and yet many Shepherds are standing by preaching their weak sermons and man’s ideology. They are sitting and watching, yet not with eyes wide open, rather with eyes that are dim and squinted. Is there no one to sound the proper alarm? Is there anyone who will take a stand? Is there anyone on the watchman’s wall. Oh yes, there are some who are watching and some who have sounded the alarm yet there is no response from the people. Why? Because of the weak preaching and watering down of God’s Word. Our calling is not to water down the Word of God but to preach it with humility and rightness. People, God needs you all! He wants you to stand and take charge. He wants you to listen to the proper alarm and to make ready yourself.

This same alarm is true when it comes to receiving from the Lord. Joel 2:1 (KJV) Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

The next couple of verses are important: Joel 2:2-3 (AMP) A day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and of thick mists and darkness, like the morning dawn spread upon the mountains; so there comes a [heathen, hostile] people numerous and mighty, the like of which has never been before and shall not be again even to the years of many generations.A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yes, and none has escaped [the ravages of the devouring hordes].

Are you prepared Pastors? Are you prepared people? This is not about hellfire and brimstone this is about truth and making known what is taking place around the world. Don’t settle for second best. Walk by faith and not by sight. Preach/Teach God’s Word with intensity! Preach/Teach the truth and the people of the congregation will follow. Pastors keep the Word of God before your eyes daily and meditate on His Word. Be truthful from the pulpit. Don’t preach to get the Amens. Preach to make God known as who He really is. The Word of God says that God IS NOT the author of confusion. God desires for His people to be blessed and prosperous in everything! Church I love you and I am expecting the very best. An outpouring is coming and the alarm will sound! Will you be prepared and will you be ready?

    I believe that you will see the re-emerging of the 5 fold ministry Apostle, Prophet, Pastor Teacher Evangelist. As the days grow darker, stronger and stronger leadership will be needed to guard the flock. Paul feared this and said so, “Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. “I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them. Just some things that I have been feeling.
    (Act 20:28-30 NASB)

  2. That last paragraph is mighty!
