Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it IS nigh at hand.
~ Joel 2:1

From a dream that I once had, a few years ago, I heard a trumpet blaring. There was no vision in the dream, but I heard a voice saying, "Prepare the Way. He IS ready." In my heart, my spirit, my entire being, I KNEW that Jesus Christ my Lord was the One that the voice was speaking of. !!! He IS coming !!! I believe this whole-heartedly!

The great day of the LORD IS near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
That day IS a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation,  a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness.
A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
And I Will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy: for He shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
~ Zephaniah 1:14-18

There is ample warning in the Word of God! The Bible says that He Will come when all have heard the gospel. Every single person who has ever been given the breath of life will be given a chance to accept God's gift of redeeming grace. How beautiful! to be offered merciful forgiveness of all our wretched sins, and to be given a new and eternal life with Jesus Christ our Lord! Yet, there shall be many who hear, and will deny His Holy Name. Will you be one of those who forsake the God of Salvation? Or will you be broken before Him, and ask Him into your heart, to Live as your Lord, you Savior, your King?

Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought His judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD's anger.
~ Zephaniah 2:3

My Dear Heavenly Father, I pray in Christ Jesus' Holy and Blessed Name, that you would keep Your hand around all those who are marked for salvation. Let the Word come to them, and have their ears ready to hear, their hearts softened, and their spirits ready to Live! As You command us to prepare the Way of the LORD, I pray that You would prepare His body to be quickened, and readied to serve You and Your Will. Thank You, LORD God, my King and my Savior. Amen.
