Psalms Music (5)

The trumpet was used for many things in Bible times. In this psalm, we read that trumpets announced that God was on His throne.
Trumpets were used during times of celebration such as feasts and festivals. They were played when people brought their offerings to God. And, trumpets were sounded to call people to worship, to announce the start of a battle or when God was ready to judge His people. The first trumpets were curved rams’ horns. Later trumpets were made from silver and shaped like a long tube.
Verses 16-17 of 1 Thessalonians, chapter 4, tell us about the time when Jesus will return. Jesus will give a command, and that “command will be given with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God.” That trumpet will be a wonderful sound for all Christians!
I hope that you are ready for Jesus to come and take His followers to live forever with Him.
