THE SOUND OF CHANGE...
Good morning....The SOUND of change is released in the realm of the spirit, even now! I was awakened by the Lord with a reminder to HEAR the sound that was in the atmosphere and what He wanted to share. Alarms, sounds, awakenings, warnings, reminders - each distinct in its own right.
As we move forward we need to have our ears tuned to the sound in the spirit.
Ezekiel 43:2 declares, "and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His VOICE was like the ROAR of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory."
Ezekiel recognized the Presence of the Lord, His Glory, because he had his ear tuned to what the Lord was not only speaking but also what He was revealing.
We know the Lord speaks in the "still small voice." We know He speaks in our spirits, through dreams and visions, and definitely and always through His Word. In this time we need to have our ear tuned to the Holy Spirit and LISTEN to HEAR what the Spirit is saying to the church.
Now beloved, due to situations in the earth we have many who are careful yet fearful of a virus and a pandemic that has a name. We know a Name that is higher than ANY OTHER NAME. His Name is Jesus! Let's trust that Name and continue on the road of faith, not fear or isolation.
The sound in the earth now is an alarm and an awakening. What is the purpose of an alarm? To wake us up! It is a time piece that is used to awaken so we are "on time, in time" for the duties, assignments, appointments of the day. We as the church must arise, hear the sound, answer the call.
Interesting an alarm is used for warnings of on coming inclement storms, weather changes, and flooding. The Shofar was and is used to signal sounds to God's people. We can focus briefly on 2 of the sounds.
One sound is called the Shevarim (Sh’varim). The sounds emanating speaks to those listening for a sound: 'Sleeping ones! Awaken from your sleep! Slumbering ones! Awaken from your slumber! Examine your deeds. Remember your Creator and return to your God! "Repentance"! As we view the earth today, we as the church must awaken to respond to the sound of the Lord in the earth, open our mouths to decree and declare truth and respond in repentance and then move forward. We can no longer get away with slumbering, sleeping and complacency, it is THE TIME TO HEAR THE ALARM AND AWAKEN! Now is not the time to be taking a rest, it's the time to hear and move.
Another sound is called the Teruah (T’ruah, teruwah).
Acclamation of joy or a battle-cry; alarm, blowing of the trumpets; joy, jubilee, loud-noise, rejoicing, shout, sounds! The same word is used for the “Shout” that is made with the VOICE! It was the “SHOUT” of the Shofars combined with the “SHOUT” of the people that brought down the walls of Jericho!
Number 10:9 declares, "And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresses you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets (Shofars); and ye shall be remembered before the Lord your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies."
This is a new day, time, era in the earth; let us be as the sons of Issachar who understand the times and know what to do! Hear HIS VOICE today, and pay attention to the SOUNDS in the earth, in your spirit, in dreams and visions, in the Holy Spirit - TODAY, hear His voice and obey!
I decree we have fine tuned ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to His church and we be filled with the Zeal of the Lord to accomplish all that He puts in our hands to do and the declarations and decrees of our mouth be filled with the authority and unction of Heaven, in Jesus Name.
