Sound the Alarm

Is God about to do something extraordinary? We should be pondering this question if we desire to be a part of the prophetic fulfillment of the times before the Second Coming of Christ—the Day of the Lord. As the prophet Joel declares, we are to sound the alarm and warn all that the Day of the Lord is at hand. Now is the time to make ourselves ready as His instruments of righteousness.

Joel 2:1-2 Blow the trumpet in Zion and sound the alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the Lord is coming, for it is at hand: 2 A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, like the morning clouds spread over the mountains.

In Peter’s great sermon following the healing of the lame man at Solomon’s Porch in the book Acts, he says Jesus won’t return until the restoration of all things happens, and everything spoken by the mouth of the prophets is fulfilled. The above passage is a prophetic statement concerning the times we are entering.


We are at a point in time when our worldly climate demands we make ourselves ready. The trumpet has begun to sound the alarm warning the inhabitants of our world to get prepared for what God is about to do. We are entering into a season of urgency, wherein we must first make sure we clothe ourselves in the Lord Jesus Christ by putting on our wedding garments.

Will we be among those who have prepared ourselves for the great wedding day, or will we be caught unaware suddenly when the day comes on us? Preparing ourselves for how to be used in this season is an important question we should all be pondering.

Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and her wife has made herself ready.

Romans 13:13-14 Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

The trumpet sound emanating from the throne of God is a wake-up call for the Church. We must wake up from our slumber and realize the alarm is sounding. We have a grave responsibility to be watchmen on the walls to warn the world, our friends, and loved ones of the impending disaster that is coming on all the inhabitants of the world, lest their blood is upon us. We must open our hearts and spirits to the alarm sounding throughout the world's landscapes and allow the Holy Spirit to speak in a way we understand.

As the prophet Ezekiel warns us, God made us security guards for His house. We are to warn the world's inhabitants to save them from their wickedness. He says their blood will be upon us if we fail to do so. It is evident;


Paul was well versed in the words of Ezekiel. When speaking to the leaders of the Ephesus church, he said, “I am innocent of the blood of all men.” During the whole of Paul’s ministry, he was motivated to sound the alarm and boldly proclaim the gospel to everyone he met. How motivated are we to sound the alarm to those we meet and know?
