How Long, O Lord? (1994)

Fleeing and God's Kingdom

Sermon; #147; 78 minutes
Given 06-Sep-94

Description: (hide)

In this sermon, John Ritenbaugh points out that the symbolism of the numerous (112) biblical references for trumpets suggests (1) an announcement of a specific event and (2) an alarm of what is to follow. In most cases the devastating horrendous events themselves are the figurative trumpet blasts, calling people to repent (Revelation 8:7-11:15, Amos 4:10-13, Isaiah 63:4, Matthew 24:29-31) God in His mercy has not revealed the specific times these horrendous events are to occur (Deuteronomy 29:29), but has revealed what is necessary for us to know. Our preparation for His Kingdom is best served by our not knowing specifically, spurring us on to greater activity in doing God's work. Preparation and constant vigilance should never stop (I Thessalonians 5:6-10, II Peter 3:14-18).
