“It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed” (1 Corinthians 15:52 NLT).
“Yet the time will come when the Lord will gather them (the Jewish nation) together like handpicked grain. One by one he will gather them—from the Euphrates River in the east to the Brook of Egypt in the west. In that day the great trumpet will sound. Many who were dying in exile in Assyria and Egypt will return to Jerusalem to worship the Lord on his holy mountain” (Isaiah 27:12-13).
I believe when the trumpet is blown and Jesus takes His church, the remaining, unbelieving Jews scattered in the world will be returned to Israel by God. There will be a great revival among them (led by the two witnesses of Rev 11), and all of Israel will be saved during the Tribulation.
“Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ. And so all Israel will be saved” (Romans 11:25b-26a).
The Lord said to Moses, “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. On the first day of the appointed month in early autumn, you are to observe a day of complete rest. It will be an official day for holy assembly, a day commemorated with loud blasts of a trumpet. You must do no ordinary work on that day. Instead, you are to present special gifts to the Lord” (Leviticus 23:23-25)
I love my Chinese brothers and sisters in Christ. I look forward to when we are all together with our Lord.
I love to hear the people of God worshiping Him, and I want to hear it in every language. :)
