PRO-Claim LIBERTY through out the land—RE-Sound through the earth. Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound an alarm on My holy Mount Zion. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the judgment of the Lord is coming; it is close at hand—Joel 2:1
Come on, ring those bells—go tell it!–I heard the bells on Christ MAS (MORE Jesus!) DAY!
Robed in splendor great & mighty.. RE-Sound His PRAISE!!!
MANY SCRIPTURES…so many that I only had wrote down the references:
1) Silver and Gold GOSPEL OF SALVATION THIS IS WHAT WE RING, WE SING, WE SHINE THE WAY, PREPARING THE WAY OF THE LORD!!!
2) MINISTRY of Salvation, this is the work of Jesus the FINISHED work that we PROCLAIM! By His Spirit!
How can we escape if we neglect so great a salvation???
Glorious RICHES in Christ Jesus!!!
Now again this is why the ATTACKS so vicious so unexpected from those who SHOULD BE ON OUR SIDE who “say” they are Christians but are LIARS. And from even so-called “professionals” and self-styled “leaders” who take our money and trust and ride rough shod over us.
ALL the attacks that seem to come “out of nowhere” because the devil is so enraged he is firing shots on ANY who are speaking the TRUTH and shining the LIGHT.
AS the enemy was enraged and KILLED ENTIRE GENERATION IN MOSES’ DAY AS DEVIL WAS ENRAGED AND KILLED ENTIRE GENERATION OF BOYS IN JESUS’ DAY…THIS IS WHY ALL THE VIOLENCE!!!
HE KNOWS AND EVEN ATTACKING ANY WHO ARE BORN AGAIN CHILDREN OF GOD!!!
AGAIN REVELATION 12 WOMAN…WE ARE THAT CHILD…WE ARE IN CHRIST JESUS!!!
The Lord gave the Word: great was the company of those that published it.
Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.
Servants, respectfully obey your earthly masters but always with an eye to obeying the real master, Christ. Don’t just do what you have to do to get by, but work heartily, as Christ’s servants doing what God wants you to do. And work with a smile on your face, always keeping in mind that no matter who happens to be giving the orders, you’re really serving God. Good work will get you Good pay from the Master, regardless of whether you are slave or free.
You who bring Good News to Zion, go up on a high mountain.
You who bring Good News to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout,
lift it up, do not be afraid;say to the towns of Judah,
“Here is your God!”
I was the first to tell Zion, ‘Look, here they are!’ I gave to Jerusalem a messenger of Good News.
Some of you were sick because you’d lived a bad life, your bodies feeling the effects of your sin;
You couldn’t stand the sight of food, so miserable you thought you’d be better off dead.
Then you called out to God in your desperate condition; He got you out in the nick of time.
He spoke the Word that healed you, that pulled you back from the brink of death.
So thank God for His marvelous love, for His miracle mercy to the children He loves;
Offer thanksgiving sacrifices, tell the world what He’s done—sing it out!
Sing His praises all over the world!
Let the sea and its fish give a round of applause, with all the far-flung islands joining in.
Let the desert and its camps raise a tune, calling the Kedar nomads to join in.
Let the villagers in Sela round up a choir and perform from the tops of the mountains.
Make God’s glory resound; echo His praises from coast to coast.
God steps out like He means business. You can see He’s primed for action.
He shouts, announcing His arrival; He takes charge and His enemies fall into line:
“I’ve been quiet long enough. I’ve held back, biting My tongue.
But now I’m letting loose, letting go, like a woman who’s having a baby—
Stripping the hills bare, withering the wildflowers, Drying up the rivers, turning lakes into mudflats.
But I’ll take the hand of those who don’t know the way, who can’t see where they’re going.
I’ll be a personal guide to them, directing them through unknown country.
I’ll be right there to show them what roads to take, make sure they don’t fall into the ditch.
These are the things I’ll be doing for them—sticking with them, not leaving them for a minute.”
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go; I will guide you with My eye.”
Announce Freedom to All Captives
The Spirit of God, the Master, is on me because God anointed me.
He sent me to preach Good News to the poor, heal the heartbroken,
Announce freedom to all captives, pardon all prisoners.
God sent me to announce the year of His grace—a celebration of God’s destruction of our enemies—and to comfort all who mourn, To care for the needs of all who mourn in Zion,
give them bouquets of roses instead of ashes, Messages of joy instead of news of doom, a praising heart instead of a languid spirit.
Rename them “Oaks of Righteousness” planted by God to display His glory.
They’ll rebuild the old ruins, raise a new city out of the wreckage. They’ll start over on the ruined cities, take the rubble left behind and make it new.
You’ll hire outsiders to herd your flocks and foreigners to work your fields, But you’ll have the title “Priests of God,” honored as ministers of our God.
You’ll feast on the bounty of nations, you’ll bask in their glory. Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt,
Your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever.
That’s when God will call on the carpet rebel powers in the skies and Rebel kings on earth.
They’ll be rounded up like prisoners in a jail, Corralled and locked up in a jail,and then sentenced and put to hard labor.
Shamefaced moon will cower, humiliated, red-faced sun will skulk, disgraced, Because God-of-the-Angel-Armies will take over, ruling from Mount Zion and Jerusalem,
Splendid and glorious before all His leaders.
Look! Listen! There’s my lover! Do you see him coming?
Vaulting the mountains, leaping the hills.
My lover is like a gazelle, graceful; like a young stag, virile.
Look at him there, on tiptoe at the gate, all ears, all eyes—ready!
My lover has arrived and he’s speaking to me!
Song of Solomon 2:8-10
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger bringing Good News,
Breaking the news that all’s well, proclaiming good times, announcing salvation, telling Zion, “Your God reigns!”
Voices! Listen! Your scouts are shouting, thunderclap shouts, shouting in joyful unison.
They see with their own eyes God coming back to Zion.
Break into song! Boom it out, ruins of Jerusalem: “God has comforted his people! He’s redeemed Jerusalem!”
God has rolled up His sleeves. All the nations can see His holy, muscled arm.
Everyone, from one end of the earth to the other, sees Him at work, doing His salvation work.
But how can people call for help if they don’t know who to trust? And how can they know who to trust if they haven’t heard of the One who can be trusted? And how can they hear if nobody tells them? And how is anyone going to tell them, unless someone is sent to do it? That’s why Scripture exclaims,
A sight to take your breath away! Grand processions of people telling all the good things of God!
But not everybody is ready for this, ready to see and hear and act. Isaiah asked what we all ask at one time or another: “Does anyone care, God? Is anyone listening and believing a word of it?” The point is: Before you trust, you have to listen. But unless Christ’s Word is preached, there’s nothing to listen to.
Look! Striding across the mountains—a messenger bringing the latest Good News: peace!
A holiday, Judah! Celebrate! Worship and recommit to God!
No more worries about this enemy. This one is history. Close the books.
God is King, robed and ruling, God is robed and surging with strength.
And yes, the world is firm, immovable, Your throne ever firm—You’re Eternal!
