In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52
Years ago, a strange phenomenon had residents of Hawaii scratching their heads. It’s the occasional sound of a trumpet that can’t be explained. Some people have speculated the eerie sounds are caused by tidal waves, underground earthquakes, or shifting sand dunes. Some people have called the sounds “unearthly.” A few people wonder if the sounds come from extraterrestrial beings.
Who knows? Strange phenomena happen all the time.
But one thing we know for sure: One day the trumpet will sound, signaling the return of Jesus Christ in the skies above our planet. The Bible says, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). It’s going to be a trumpet loud enough to awaken the dead!
Despite the chaos of the world around us, we can be confident that Christ will return for us. We can almost hear the trumpet sounding now!
Human history, as we know it, will end with Your loud command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the blast of Your trumpet. Anne Graham Lotz
