The Trumpet’s Warning

4 then if anyone who hears the sound of the trumpet does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet and did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But if he had taken warning, he would have saved his life. ~ Ezekiel 33:4–5

There are many voices shouting “Warning! Warning! The time of the end is near. The time of Jesus’ return is at hand.” Just like in the days of Noah, the warning went out, “The rain is coming. The flood is upon us; save yourselves.” But no one heeded the warning, and they all drowned. The clarion call has gone out. The sound of the trumpet is going out throughout the land. “Prepare! Jesus is coming back soon.”

But the scoffers continue to scoff, and the unbelievers continue to disbelieve. The procrastinators continue to procrastinate. I’ll get right tomorrow. I’ll do it soon; I’m just having too much fun right now. There are things I really need to do. When I’m older, I will get saved.

Remember, today is the day of salvation; tomorrow is promised to no man. It’s time to heed the warning of the trumpet. It is time to pay close attention to what is going on around you. The days are evil, the times are hard, and getting harder.

Do not be swept away with the crowd. Do not be caught by surprise. But be ready. Listen to the warnings and flee sexual immorality. Flee idolatry. And come to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. He alone has the words of life.

Pray this prayer and make it right with God.

Father forgive me, for I have sinned. Cleanse me from my uncleanness and set me free from my chains. Help me to live for you by heeding the trumpet’s warning. Thank you for your sacrifice; I accept it now. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
